As our bodies age, they start to change, both inside and out. Bio-identical hormones have helped to change the lives of hundreds of thousands of people world-wide. And now, rather than suffer from symptoms of PMS, menopause, andropause (male menopause) or loss of libido, women and men can feel healthy and vibrant throughout their entire lives.

Are You a BHRT Candidate?
Some of the symptoms you might be experiencing might include excessive weight gain, low libido or sex drive, mood swings, insomnia or trouble sleeping, depression, and or irritability. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms you might be a candidate for BHRT pellet therapy.
Pellets are the most natural way to deliver bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) in both men and women. Pellets deliver a consistent release of hormone levels over an extended period of time, typically 3–6 months. This means only 2–4 visits to the medical office per year! Best of all, your dosage is customized based on your labs.
What is BHRT?
The ultimate goal in BHRT is to bring the body’s natural hormone levels back into balance based on the specific needs of each individual. Pellet therapy, a form of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), is one of the most effective modalities available to deliver bio-identical hormones. Most patients experience superior results over traditional methods of hormone replacement therapy and find pellet therapy is much more convenient than applying transdermal patches, messy creams or remembering to take a pill every day.
How does BHRT work?
Implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones providing optimal therapy.Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy – which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient – Hormone Pellet Therapy provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 3 to 6 months, without any “roller coaster” effect.
The pellets are not time released, rather, they release hormones into the blood stream based on cardiac output; in other words, based on how physically active or how much emotional stress, good or bad, you may be under.
Is BHRT safe?
Pellet therapy is a safe, natural alternative to synthetic hormones and is the only form of HRT that closely mimics the natural levels of hormones secreted in the body. With the steady stream of hormones delivered through pellet therapy, mood and energy fluctuations and other symptoms are kept at bay, 24/7.
What to Expect
What the process is
The insertion of pellets is a simple, relatively painless procedure done under local anesthesia. After numbing with a local anesthetic, the practitioner injects the prescribed number of tiny pellets (each about the size of a few grains of rice or less) into the fatty tissue underneath the skin.
The procedure typically takes 10–15 minutes, and most people are comfortable resuming daily activities immediately after their appointment.
Expected results post-insertion
After pellets are inserted, patients may notice that they have more energy, sleep better and feel happier. Muscle mass and bone density will increase while fatty tissue decreases. Patients may notice increased strength, co-ordination and physical performance. They may see an improvement in skin tone and hair texture. Concentration and memory may improve as will overall physical and sexual health.
