Michael Zufelt, D.O. has been a SottoPelle® Trained Provider since January 2020.
As a Utah native, Michael Zufelt, D.O. enjoys serving his patients and friends in the Salt Lake City, Utah and surrounding areas under the name of Hair Restoration Center of Utah. He continues to provide a world-class experience and has been doing so for the past 27 years.
Michael Zufelt, D.O., Salt Lake City, Utah, completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Utah and Brigham Young University, and received his medical degree from Western University in southern California and residency from Midwestern University in Chicago. After practicing as an Emergency Specialist in Salt Lake City and Bountiful, Utah, for several years, Michael Zufelt, D.O. completed the prestigious MHR fellowship in Hair Transplant Surgery.
Michael Zufelt, D.O. developed an interest in HRT after using it himself for a couple of years. Michael Zufelt, D.O. found the benefits of using HRT incredibly life-changing. Michael Zufelt, D.O. always likes to share advances or benefits in medical therapy with his patients. Over the last few years, many of his hair patients were coming in and were on HRT, many of them using topical and self-injections, which were increasing their hair loss, so he needed to find a solution for both problems. The bio-identical pellets seemed to be the best option. Michael Zufelt, D.O. says he believes strongly that it is best to help the body heal from “within.” Taking care of the body so that it can adjust and deal with whatever it receives, whether it is a tough day at work or a hard work out or a hair transplant surgery if it is in prime condition and well balanced, it can respond to the level we want.
”SottoPelle® met the needs of my patients to improve their hormone levels and feel more youthful as well as minimizing the effects on hair loss,” said Michael Zufelt, D.O. “The SottoPelle® staff have also been so supportive in all aspects of the field. Their dosing application helps with dosing and their support with email and phone calls is amazing. They always have great suggestions and guidance. Their commitment to excellence fits with my personal philosophy “to help each patient by giving them something they can enjoy for the rest of their lives.”
When Michael Zufelt, D.O. is not working, he has a love for running. He mostly runs the local trails and also mountain bikes. The Best Day, Michael Zufelt, D.O. loves to water ski and spend as much time outdoors as possible.
“We are proud to be associated with Michael Zufelt, D.O. whom we have trained to understand the best practices of BHRT,” states CarolAnn Tutera, CEO of SottoPelle®. “We are thrilled to have Michael Zufelt, D.O. as a Provider of Note who shares our vision of best practices and quality patient care.”

Luckily, the symptoms of hormone imbalance are not one of them.
Still, hundreds of thousands of women and men are suffering through uncomfortable physical and mental symptoms that take a toll on their work, relationships, and quality of life. Sometimes their doctors have told them to “just live with it.” Others may have offered them hormone replacement creams, pills or patches made of risky synthetic hormones.
There’s another option.
What makes SottoPelle® different?
The SottoPelle approach to hormone replacement therapy is different, as we use bio identical HRT “pellets” placed painlessly under the skin. Let’s take a look at why this is the most desirable approach to HRT.
The definition of bioidentical is “chemically identical to what your body produces naturally.” This means your body can’t tell the difference between bio identical hormones and the hormones your body once produced, naturally. To your body, they are the same, and that means that in your body, they behave the same way.
The “Hand in the Glove” Analogy
We like to think of Bio identical Pellet therapy as “a hand in a glove.” The glove is the hormone pellet, and the hand is your body. When you put the two together, everything fits…” like, a glove”. The two work seamlessly together.
If you were given a glove designed any other way, your hand wouldn’t fit quite right. That’s what happens with synthetic hormones. They are made with estrogen or testosterone, but they are not biologically identical to your own. This creates a “mismatch” in your body that can lead to unwanted side effects.
It might help to understand how delicate and sensitive the hormonal system in our bodies is. Hormones bind with cells and tissues via proteins in the body called hormone receptors. Once bound, the hormones can create the necessary cellular changes that keep you healthy and feeling good. Your naturally occurring hormones have the perfect molecular structure to “fit” into these hormone receptors.
When you have a hormone imbalance, your body doesn’t make enough to meet your needs, and you experience symptoms. SottoPelle’s bioidentical hormones, being molecularly identical, are received by your body in the same fashion, react in the same way on a cellular level and produce the same results as your naturally occurring hormones. They quench the thirst of those empty hormone receptors. They fill the gap perfectly.
Synthetic hormones do not have the same molecular structure, absorption capabilities or receptor affinity as bioidenticals. On top of that, the doses are, to some degree, “one-size-fits-all”. The delivery system doesn’t work the same way your body does. The glove doesn’t fit.
Why bioidentical hormones are preferred
The continuing research on bioidentical hormones is making the picture more and more clear: on a cellular level, little things make a big difference.
When we take a look at the science of bioidentical hormone replacement, we learn that:
● bioidentical progesterone does not have a negative effect on blood lipids or vessels like many synthetic progestins
● bioidentical progesterone may carry less risk regarding breast cancer incidence
● bioidentical estrogens and progesterone suggest a reduced risk of blood clots compared to their non-bioidentical counterparts
● bioidentical hormones are safer and work better than commonly used synthetic versions of hormone replacement therapy
Not only is SottoPelle hormone replacement method biologically identical to your own naturally produced hormones, but our delivery method is also individualized. Through blood tests, we know the correct amount of hormones you need, and we can provide it. We don’t have to squeeze you into someone else’s glove.
Also, our unique delivery system ensures that the correct amount of hormone reaches your bloodstream in a steady, consistent dose, not with the ups and downs produced by other delivery methods like pills, creams or patches.
Just like wearing a well-fitting glove helps you do the job with ease, having the right fit for your hormones helps you live your life with balance, convenience, confidence, and joy.
Let us help you find your “fit.” Contact one of our SottoPelle Certified Providers today.
Your overall health and wellbeing will thank you for it.

We all know about stress. Everyday something happens in your life that seems stressful. You can find an entire day, week or year consumed by stress. Are you driven mad by NUTS?
Beyond being a huge glutton of our mental time, stress is really unhealthy.
Does stress impact how we age too?
Science and studies seem to indicate it does.
“Chronic stress accelerates premature aging by shortening DNA telomeres.
Telomere length is a marker of both biological and cellular aging. Stressful life experiences in childhood and adulthood have previously been linked to accelerated telomere shortening. Shortened telomeres have been associated with chronic diseases and premature death in previous studies by Dr. Owen Wolkowitz and colleagues at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).(1)
Is All Stress Created Equal?
No, there are physical and emotional stressors and they impact you differently. Their are also instances were we self impose stress on ourself.
“Like most psychological theories, it’s gone through a few changes over the years. Experts had long believed that the Zeigarnik effect was the brain’s way of prompting its owner to finish a task, nagging the mind to wrap up what had been started. But recent research has found that the Zeigarnik effect is a little more specific than that.
“(The) unconscious is asking the conscious mind to make a plan,” write Roy Baumeister and John Tierney in Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength. “The unconscious mind apparently can’t do this on its own, so it nags the conscious mind to make a plan with specifics like time, place, and opportunity. Once the plan is formed, the unconscious can stop nagging the conscious mind with reminders.”
Sounds great, right? It’s like a built-in to-do-list, no iPhone note required. But here’s the thing: That constant mental nagging can seriously drain you after a while.”(2)
To Recap “stress comes in two basic flavors, physical and emotional — and both can be especially taxing for older people. The impacts of physical stress are clear. As people reach old age, wounds heal more slowly and colds become harder to shake. A 75-year-old heart can be slow to respond to the demands of exercise. And when an 80-year-old walks into a chilly room, it will take an extra-long time for her body temperature to adjust.
Emotional stress is more subtle, but if it’s chronic, the eventual consequences can be as harmful. At any age, stressed-out brains sound an alarm that releases potentially harmful hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. Ideally, the brain turns down the alarm when stress hormones get too high.
Stress hormones provide energy and focus in the short term, but too much stress over too many years can throw a person’s system off-balance. Overloads of stress hormones have been linked to many health problems, including heart disease, high blood pressure, and weakened immune function. For older people already at heightened risk for these illnesses, managing stress is particularly important.
Over time, the brain can slowly lose its skills at regulating hormone levels. As a result, older people who feel worried or anxious tend to produce larger amounts of stress hormones, and the alarm doesn’t shut down as quickly. According to a study published in the journal Psychoneuroendocrinology, women are especially susceptible to an overload of stress hormones as they age. The study found that the impact of age on cortisol levels is nearly three times stronger for women than for men.
The flow of stress hormones can be especially hard on older brains in general. According to a report from the University of California at San Francisco, extra cortisol over the years can damage the hippocampus, a part of the brain that’s crucial for storing and retrieving memories. Several studies have found that high cortisol goes hand in hand with poor memory, so we might be able to chalk up certain “senior moments” to stress.”(3)
How Can We Combat Stress?
Some studies indicate that having multiple major life events in a year can create advanced aging. So in a case like mine where a parent passed, sick spouse and selling a home does that mean I will age faster?
I don’t think anyone can tell you for sure as aging is associated with many factors like genetics, environment and balanced lifestyle.
You can offset some of the detrimental effects of stress with the help of friends, family, strong support networks, and strategies for coping with stress.
Reduce your NUTS!!
Yes, humor is great for reducing stress so hopefully your smiling now. Nagging Unfinished Tasks (NUT) are all the unfinished things we perceive or think about that just rent space on our brain and have an impact on our stress level.
“Dr. Oz says they are “often very simple to fix but if you never get around to them, NUTs create a subtle underlying angst that can undermine your health.” Author Jack Canfield calls them “messes and incompletes” and says they “rob us of valuable attention units”.
This variety, these Nagging Unfinished Tasks, are most definitely NOT good for us. They cause not only mental stress, but eventual physical stress. Who needs ‘em?!
Well, unfortunately, I bet we all got ‘em. Those hanger-on projects, tasks, and to-do’s that just seem to never go away. They are those uninteresting, challenging, boring, tedious little things we simply don’t want to do.
So how to handle them and move on to and make room for the things we DO want to do?
Here are some ideas:
Use a simple time management principle: “Do it, Delegate it, Delay it, or Dump it”. The moment you’ve got a task in mind to add to your to-do’s, make a decision on what to do with it… right then and there. Maybe it doesn’t even need to go on the list.(4)
Have stress-reducing techniques on hand. Try meditation, humor or exercise. I love taking a drive and listening to music or going for a great foot massage. Find your comfort zone – a place, person or activity that brings you comfort.
