Why Go the Route of Pellets for HRT?
When there are so many options available for hormone replacement, why is bio identical hormone replacement with pellet therapy the best choice?
Why not just get prescription for a pill, cream or patch full of a synthetic hormone substitute?
We can’t wait to tell you.
Pellet therapy is the most natural form of hormone replacement available.
We can’t turn back the clock and make your ovaries produce more estrogen or your adrenal glands (or testicles) generate more testosterone. However, a bio identical pellet the size of a grain of rice placed in the fatty tissue under the skin is the next best thing.
Natural hormone production is a precarious balancing act, and therefore so is hormone replacement. Other methods can end up delivering a roller coaster ride of hormones as the dose in your bloodstream rises and falls. By contrast, bio identical hormone pellets gently dissolve over time, delivering a steady, consistent dose of hormone that keeps you balanced the same way your body would.
The hormones used in pellet therapy are also molecularly identical to the hormones produced by the human body. That’s not true of their synthetic counterparts.
Pellet therapy allows for customized dosages.
Remember the steady, consistent stream of hormones delivered into your bloodstream by pellet therapy? Imagine those pellets could also be perfectly customized to your body and your specific needs? They can!
Unlike pre-packaged synthetic hormones, bio identical hormone replacement with pellets is compounded specifically for each patient. Which hormones you get and how much of them depend on your unique hormone profile, not what’s available on the shelf.
Pellet therapy is safe.
More and more research is confirming the safety and health-enhancing benefits of hormone replacement with pellet therapy, including improved bone density and cardiovascular health as well as relief from the symptoms of menopause and andropause.
Because it bypasses the liver, the pellet delivery system does not raise glucose or lipid levels, increase blood pressure, or raise the risk of blood clots or liver damage.
Pellets do not increase the risk of breast cancer like the synthetic, chemical progestin’s that were used during the Women’s Health Initiative trial. They do not have the same risk of breast cancer as high doses of oral estrogens like Premarin. In fact, research suggests that balanced hormones are actually breast protective.

Last, but not least: pellet therapy is convenient.
Pellet therapy for the patient consists of a quick trip to the doctor every 3 to 5 months for women and every 5 to 6 months for men. The pellets are inserted under the skin during a simple, in-office procedure. No prescriptions to fill. No creams, patches or pills to mess with. We will want to test your hormone levels to ensure your dosage is optimized, but other than that, you can pellet and forget it!
