Why Women Prefer SottoPelle® BHRT

Although women use SottoPelle® for many reasons, the primary goal is to relieve perimenopause and post-menopause symptoms. Losing hormones as a woman can strain one’s overall well-being and quality of life. Especially with age, this becomes much more difficult when facing menopause. That’s where SottoPelle® Therapy comes in.
Perimenopause can occur anytime between the ages of 30 and 50 for women. This is due to hormone imbalance. A woman’s ovaries start to function differently at this period in life, which causes the ovaries to produce less estrogen. This change and imbalance often comes with several side effects, including the following:

  • Periods will become less consistent and predictable
  • A woman may begin to gain weight easier
  • Night sweats and hot flashes
  • Irregular mood swings that may lead to depressions
  • Decreased sexual performance
  • And more

Menopause is something that women often dread, and rightfully so. However, the hormone imbalances that ignite this period in life can now be treated with SottoPelle® Therapy.

It is our goal to provide females with a scientifically proven solution. Not only will our natural hormone replacement therapy help a woman age gracefully, but it replenishes hormones in a way that cannot be replicated anywhere else.

Perimenopause and post-menopause come with a wide variety of unappealing side effects. Women not only want to avoid these symptoms with age, but completely restore their estrogen and progesterone levels as well. That is exactly what SottoPelle® Therapy offers.

If you or a loved one are interested in SottoPelle® Therapy for perimenopause or post-menopause relief, contact our doctors today.


Why Hormone Pellets Are the Best Choice for Hormone Replacement Therapy

Pellet hormone replacement therapy has been available and researched for more than 70 years. Since the early 1940s, reports have appeared in a wide range of respected international journals supporting the many benefits of this method. In fact, bioidentical pellet HRT, when properly administered, is scientifically recognized as the safest and most effective hormone replacement method available.
But not all bioidentical pellets or pellet implant methods are the same. We often see patients who have switched to SottoPelle® from other providers because they heard about our special procedure and the effectiveness of SottoPelle® therapy. Time and again they tell us how much better they feel on our pellets as opposed to their previous experience with the pellet implant method.

The Difference Between Other Pellets and Those Used by SottoPelle®
There are at least a couple of good reasons why other pellets don’t work as well. First, many manufacturers use synthetic fillers and binders in their process. These can interfere with the absorption rate and effectiveness of the HRT. Another problem can lie in the manufacturing method used to fuse the hormones into pellet form. This process has a direct relationship to how long the pellet will last and how much hormone gets released. Pellets can either dissolve too quickly or not dissolve properly, prohibiting the consistent, slow release of low doses of hormone needed for hormonal balance.

SottoPelle® is proud to say that the pellets we use are 99.9% pure hormone (bioidentical estradiol or testosterone) plus a human fatty acid (0.1%) to bind them together.

Our Pellet Manufacturer is FDA Regulated and Unsurpassed in Quality
We use one of the finest manufacturing facilities in the industry to make pellets for us. As an FDA-regulated 503B manufacturing site,* it is held to the very highest standards currently set by the FDA. The facility features a state-of-the-art manufacturing environment with advanced equipment, training procedures and testing, in addition to an expert team of well-trained, licensed pharmacists and certified pharmacy technicians.

To manufacture hormone pellets, they start with the highest quality, FDA-regulated ingredients available. Using current good manufacturing practices (CGMP) the bioidentical hormones are fused into tiny cylinders. Samples are then sent to independent laboratories for testing. This ensures that the pellets have the proper density, potency, purity, sterility, solubility, rate of disintegration, and temperature tolerance. In fact, the pellets they manufacture consistently meet or exceed industry and regulatory standards for quality and safety.

Their very meticulous manufacturing process combined with our own precision BHRT method are what make SottoPelle® Therapy the reliably effective hormone replacement method it is.

*What is a 503B Manufacturing Site (Outsourcing Facility)?
In November of 2013, President Obama signed into law the Drug Quality and Security Act which sets forth new, more rigorous standards for the pharmacy industry. The bill contained a section known as the Compounding Quality Act. Under the 503B section of this new law, outsourcing facilities must comply with current good manufacturing practices (CGMP), register with the FDA, and comply with reporting and inspection requirements.

Be sure to ask your doctor if their pellets are made in a FDA certified 503B facility. If not, you have to question their quality, effectiveness and safety.

Father’s Day 2015

Father’s Day is a time to show love and appreciation for all the amazing men we call Dad. I think most would agree that every day is a good day to show our dad’s how much they mean to us. Father’s come in all shapes, sizes, and relationships. Some are biological, while others stand in and take that role.
On July 19, 1910, the governor of the U.S. state of Washington proclaimed the nation’s first “Father’s Day.” However, it was not until 1972, 58 years after President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day official, that the day became a nationwide holiday in the United States.

It took a while for Father’s Day to get traction as many did not see the viability in for commercial reasons. Regardless of the origins or intent to have a Father’s Day or Mother’s Day as designated holiday, acknowledging what our parents have done and do for us is a great idea. Being a parent is one of the hardest jobs in the world. It’s a lifetime commitment of love and support and that is 24/7 every day. Besides showing your dad a lot of love this Father’s Day – the next big question is what to get your dad? Some great thoughts and ideas just came out on this article on Business Insider:

Admit it: Your dad is Superman. He may be the family handyman, chef, chauffeur, and unofficial bug-killer.
He does a lot for you, so why not tell him how much you appreciate it? Father’s Day falls on June 21st this year, and it’s never too early or too late to start planning for dad’s special day. Whether he’s into beer, golf, traveling, or movies, we’ve got you covered.

What better gift to your dad than helping feel his best? SottoPelle® celebrates all the great Dad’s out there, and wish you an amazing day!
