They are derived from a natural plant source of yam and hand compounded to be biologically compatible to the human form of estradiol and testosterone. The body is given what it can no longer produce through hormone replacement therapy.
The quality of life given back to every man and woman is second to none. Our patients have reported:
- Increased energy levels
- Restored or increased sexual drive

- Relief from anxiety and depression
- Increased mental focus and clarity
- Decreased body fat
- Greater capacity for getting the body in shape
It depends on the person, but anywhere from four to six months.
Yes! Sottopelle has had great success with hormone-related headaches.
The great majority of physician training is on synthetic hormones. More than likely they were never trained on the use of biologically identical hormone therapy.
A majority of our patients have reported anywhere from 24 to 72 hours from the time of insertion.
Estrogen is the most important hormone for a woman to protect her against heart attack, stroke, osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s. Synthetic estrogen taken orally does not offer the universal benefits or the same benefits as being on bio identical estrogen.
Good hormone balance will greatly improve your sexual desires.
There is less chance of hair growth with biologically identical hormones used in hormone replacement therapy than the use of synthetic hormones.
Unless the uterus has been removed, women will also need progesterone to protect the uterine lining.
All physicians practice medicine in their unique manner. We prefer the labs that help us make the correct diagnosis.
Blood samples are the simplest method of measuring pituitary hormone levels which are crucial for proper diagnosis. The other methods, especially saliva, do not.
Hormone therapy helps protect brain function and memory, prevent dementia and Alzheimer’s, preserve muscle and bone, decrease cholesterol and the risk of heart attack and stroke, increase energy, and give back a good quality of life.
A testosterone pellet called Testopel® is FDA approved for men. All other pellets are termed FDA regulated for use in humans.
Progesterone pellets do not give steady levels of progesterone, and this results in a lot of uterine bleeding.
No, continue taking all your medications, including your hormones.
The laboratory tests are covered by insurance.
Lab charges vary and a simple phone call to the laboratory can get all the information you need.
The hormone pellets we use will return your body to the physiologic state of when you were in your early 40’s. This promotes protection against heart attack, stroke, dementia, Alzheimer’s, bone loss, muscle loss, fatigue, poor memory, and in some cases the development of certain cancers.
DHEA is a precursor hormone the body produces to make testosterone. If you receive testosterone, DHEA becomes unnecessary and may even be harmful.
We do, especially for those with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Epstein-Barr Virus.
