Finding your “fit.”

Some things we just have to live with.

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 therapy 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.
