What is Pellet Therapy?
Pellet therapy has been available in the United States since 1939. It is a sustainable delivery method for bio-identical hormone therapy and is an ideal hormone imbalance treatment that helps balance body chemistry and restores health and vitality in women suffering the symptoms of hormonal imbalances. The effect that the pellets have is nearly identical to the way hormones are naturally produced in healthy 30-something year-old women.
Pellets are sterilized cylindrical compressed pure hormones that are inserted under the skin of the upper outer buttocks in a painless 10-minute procedure. They start to release hormones almost immediately and the effects can be felt in as little as 48 hours although the average time is closer to a week. Women are given either testosterone or testosterone plus estradiol. Pellets in women must be replaced every 3 months to maintain therapeutic blood levels. The big advantage of the pellet compared to other methods is the steady state delivery or constant release of hormones. Once optimal levels are achieved, they are maintained 24/7. In women with osteopenia or osteoporosis, this is important because their bones are receiving constant signals to maintain or even improve bone density.
