What is Pellet Therapy?
Pellet therapy uses hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels. Patients have found that Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy with pellet implants is extremely effective. Implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones providing optimal therapy.
Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy – which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient –BioTE® Hormone Pellet Therapy, is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 4 to 6 months, without any “roller coaster” effect.
Because the hormones used are completely natural, pellet therapy is ideal for patients wanting the benefits of a natural hormone.
What are Pellets?
Pellets contain a natural plant source of estrogen and testosterone. The estrogen or testosterone utilized in the pellets is compounded by a professional compounding pharmacist using strict federal guidelines.
These pellets-which are smaller than a grain of rice-are then placed in the fatty tissue underneath the skin and act as if an ovary or testicle is present. The implantation procedure is easily performed in the office.
Pellet Therapy for Women:
Ten to fifteen years before the onset of menopause, women may experience the loss of testosterone. Symptoms of hormone imbalance in women include: hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, low to no libido, low to no energy, mood swings, depression, anxiety and more.
In studies, when compared to conventional hormone replacement therapy, pellets have been shown to be extremely effective for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, and improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response and performance. Pellet implant has been used to treat migraine and menstrual headaches. It also helps with vaginal dryness, incontinence, urinary urgency and frequency.
Pellet Therapy for Men:
Testosterone levels begin to decline in men beginning in their early 30′s. Most men need to be tested around 45 years of age. Symptoms of testosterone deficiency in men include fatigue, lack of mental acuity, loss of libido, and difficulty achieving, or sustaining erection. It is never too late to benefit from hormone therapy. Long term benefits include, bone, brain and heart protection.
Pellet therapy achieves the sustained levels of testosterone that would be produced by normally functioning testicles. This form of therapy is the only kind that produces the natural level of hormone that men need. Because the testosterone used is totally natural, pllet therapy is ideal for men wanting the benefits of a natural hormone.
Typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy produce “roller coaster” blood levels of testosterone, which can result in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient.
What if my primary care physician or my gynecologist says that there is ‘no data’ to support the use of pellet implants?
It’s about a patient making an informed choice. After pellets are inserted, patients may notice that they have more energy, sleep better and feel happier. Muscle mass and bone density will increase while fatty tissue decreases. Patients may notice increased strength, co-ordination and physical performance. They may see an improvement in skin tone and hair texture. Concentration and memory may improve as will overall physical and sexual health. There is data to support the ‘long term’ safety of hormones delivered by pellet implants. Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is being used safely in 5 continents and has been studied for 8 decades.
BioTE® Therapy using Hormone Pellets. The Best Choice for Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone Pellet Therapy is regarded as one of the worlds most effective forms of bio identical HRT. A form of hormone therapy that was developed in 1949 by Dr. Robert Greenblatt, M.D., an internationally recognized leader in the field of bio identical hormone replacement therapy, this truly unique method of HRT centers on doctors prescribing the right type of hormones in correct dosage, using the best delivery method (hormone pellets).
