pellet therapy - We are a certified Biote Medical Provider
Bio-Identical pellet therapy is quickly becoming the most popular form of hormone therapy for women.
Bio-Identical Testosterone and Estrogen (Bio T & E) hormones are plant-based, natural substances that our bodies can metabolize in the way it was designed to do, minimizing side effects. These compounded bio-identicals can be matched to each woman’s unique needs, something that’s impossible with mass-manufactured products.
Hormone imbalance can begin as early as in our twenties, and becomes more prevalent as we age. Countless women and men have now made the switch to natural bio-identical hormone therapy. These human-identicals have long been preferred for hormone therapy in Japan, France and other European countries. They’ve been the subjects of many research studies on hormone therapy in which significant health benefits have been reported for both women and men. Data also continues to indicate that receiving hormone replacement therapy at the start of menopause can be very important to a woman’s ongoing health.
Women using bio-identical hormone therapy often report numerous benefits shortly after starting the therapy, such as: increased energy, improved mental focus and clarity, improved weight control, improved bone density, improved libido, as well as a decrease in menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, and headaches.
Most women commonly report seeing some benefits within the first 5-7 days after starting therapy. Side-effects may also start within the first couple weeks of starting therapy, however they are usually detected early and easily managed. Most women do not experience any significant side-effects with pellet therapy. Approximately 2 out of 10 women experience some water retention, this can be easily minimized by drinking plenty of water and reducing dietary sodium and salt intake.
Routine lab work is scheduled after starting pellet therapy to ensure proper dosing, which is customized for each individual.
Bio-identical cream therapy can be used to manage estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone in women. Similar to pellet therapy, cream therapy offers all of the benefits of hormone therapy without some of the potential side-effects and risks that are associated with synthetic and oral forms, such as pills and capsules.
