Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy At-A-Glance

As we age, our bodies begin to change, both inside and out, in very dramatic ways.

Women begin to experience the well-known symptoms of mood swings, hot flashes, insomnia, low energy and decreased sex drive, while men begin to experience loss of mental focus, loss of sex drive, decreased energy and weight gain.

 

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy with testosterone pellets offers the answer to regaining your life and your feeling of well being.

 

Unlike other forms of hormone replacement therapy, pellets avoid the fluctuations in hormone levels and have fewer side effects than traditional hormone replacement therapy.

 

Why do I need hormones?

Hormones are chemical messengers produced by the endocrine glands throughout your body. Hormones connect your nervous system with every cell in your body. Endocrine glands receive signals from your brain telling them how to oversee various functions within your body. In turn, the endocrine system is responsible for the regulation of your body's temperature, sexual desires, growth, healing, aging and immune system.

 

Deficiencies in certain hormone levels can cause syndromes such as menopause and andropause, as well as diseases such as colon cancer, osteoporosis, heart disease, Alzheimers, stroke, and macular degeneration. Having an adequate balance of hormones is important in helping you feel well and protecting you against disease.

 

So what exactly are "pellets"?

  • Pellets are made up of bioidentical testosterone compressed into very small, solid cylinders.

 

  • Each pellet is about the size of a grain of rice.

 

  • They come in sterile glass vials and are implanted under sterile conditions.
  • They are extracted from soy and yams

 

  • They contain bioidentical hormones - hormones that are identical in structure to the hormones made in your body

 

  • They act in the body just like the hormones we naturally produce (unlike synthetic hormones)

 

The History of Pellet Therapy

  • Subcutaneous hormone implants have been used in the US, Europe and Australia since 1938

 

  • 100 mg and 200 mg pellets are commercially available in Europe and Austrailia

 

  • In 1972, the FDA approved the 75 mg testosterone pellet here in the US

 

  • Other formulation and dosages are available in the US and are compounded by trained pharmacists

I have been receiving the pellets now for well over a year and plan to continue -- they are convenient, affordable, and most importantly, safe. I feel they are the key to why I feel virtually free of any symptoms.
