Hormone replacement therapy is the most effective treatment for the hormonal imbalances that often occur during perimenopause and menopause. There are various methods available, but the most natural is bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Compared to traditional hormone therapy, this method uses custom-made hormones that are chemically identical to those your body produces. Hormone pellets are the latest advancement in BHRT and are gaining popularity among both physicians and patients.
How Hormone Pellet Therapy Works
Proper hormone levels are determined individually for each patient using the comprehensive BioTE blood work analysis. The hormone pellet dosing is customized to your body’s needs so that you get the treatment that’s right for you.
The pellet implants are placed under the skin in an outpatient procedure and consistently release small doses of bioidentical hormones directly into the bloodstream, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for up to 5 months.
Who is Eligible?
Hormone replacement therapy is most often used to treat the symptoms of menopause in women. However, hormone pellet therapy is available to both men and women. Studies have shown improvements through pellet therapy for the following conditions:
- Low Sex Drive
- Heart Disease
- Thyroid Disorders
Hormone pellet therapy has also been used in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, Parkinson’s disease and post-traumatic stress disorder.
What are the Benefits?
Found in nature and plant-derived, hormone therapy pellets are the most natural way to overcome hormone deficiencies and hormone imbalances at any age. BHRT pellets are structurally the same as the human body’s naturally occurring hormones. Derived from plants and substances found in nature, they may have fewer negative interactions within the body.
Hormone pellets offer a more direct route to the bloodstream resulting in more consistent results. Other hormone replacement therapy administrations in which the hormone is provided in spurts, such as pills and creams, often result in a rollercoaster effect of relief to discomfort for patients.
Hormone pellet therapy is administered at the physician’s office, with no need for the patient to go to the pharmacy for refills. On average, treatment is needed 3-4 times a year.
