Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

Role of Hormones

Hormone Pellet Therapy

Is It For Me?


How is Bioidentical Hormone pellet therapy different from pills, creams and patches?

The bioidentical hormone pellet are not synthetic pharmaceuticals, artificial stimulants or animal derivatives.  Each pellet is identical to the hormone naturally produced by the body. Unlike pills, creams and patches that require you to consistently and continuously self administer them, bioidentical hormones work together with your body responding to your body’s specific needs. Another major difference is the delivery method: the pellets deliver the hormones directly into the bloodstream through the capillaries which in turn deliver them to your tissues and organs.  When you take hormones orally, about 90 percent go directly to the liver,which can cause inflammation or clotting. Additionally, there are virtually no side effects to bioidentical hormone pellet therapy, and they have been safely used and studied for over six decades. Further, bioidentical hormones support the cardiovascular system and do not increase breast cancer.
