Most people assume hormonal problems will only occur in Menopause, such as hot flashes and night sweats. However, many of signs and symptoms of hormonal imbalance (such as those listed above) can begin 10 – 20 years before a woman will ever enter into menopause, and can be caused by a variety of factors. Men can also be affected just like women. Whether you are in Menopause and suffering from symptoms, pre-menopausal and suffering, or a man who does not feel like he used to, there is something you can do about it. It does not have to be that way.

One option for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is using hormone pellets. Pellet Therapy uses hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels.
Data supports that hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is one of the most effective and the most bio-identical method to deliver hormones in both men and women. The implants are placed under the skin and consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones providing optimal therapy. The pellets are made up of either estradiol (estrogen) or testosterone. The hormones are pressed or fused into tiny solid cylinders. They are slightly bigger than a grain of rice, but smaller than a ‘Tic Tac’.
Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy, which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient, pellets deliver consistent, healthy levels of hormones for 3-6 months in both men and women. Pellets do not increase the risk of blood clots like conventional or synthetic hormone replacement therapy.
