Pellet Therapy

Pellet therapy is the use of bio-identical hormones delivered in a way that replicates the body’s normal hormonal levels. They are metabolized consistently into the body as needed providing optimal therapy. Pellet therapy is extremely effective and well-tolerated, providing optimal therapy.

Delivery Methods

Creams, pills and patches all deliver wildly, inconsistent amounts of hormones unnaturally released into the body that does not mimic how the body naturally delivers hormones. Pellet delivery system is consistent and ongoing as the body requires it. You don’t have to worry about taking a pill, or a patch falling off, or a million other factors that make creams, pills, and patches an unreliable way to deliver hormones. Pellets remain the only delivery system that provides steady blood serum levels over time. This was clearly documented in a 1993 study conducted by Smith and Studd won’t have to change patches, rub on creams, or remember to take a pill. And you won’t experience the radical surges and drops in blood levels as with other methods. Pellet implants even deliver more when the body needs it—like during exercise or periods of stress.
