What is Hormone Pellet Therapy?
Pellet Therapy uses natural hormones including estrone (E1), estradiol (E2), progesterone, testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), and pregnenolone, derived from plant sources to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels. Patients have found that this natural (bio-identical) hormone replacement therapy, with pellet implants, is extremely effective. These implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones providing optimal therapy.
Why Does Bloom Recommend Hormone Pellet 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, is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 4 to 6 months, without any “roller coaster” effect. Because the hormones used are completely natural, Pellet Therapy is ideal for patients wanting the benefits of a natural hormone, without the drawbacks of a synthetic.
What Is The Procedure:
A compounding pharmacist, using strict federal guidelines, compounds the natural hormones utilized in the pellets. These pellets, which are smaller than a grain of rice, are placed in the fatty tissue underneath the skin and most closely mimic the actions of healthy ovaries and testicles with regards to hormone release into the bloodstream. The implantation procedure is easily performed in our office after a complete evaluation of your medical and family history.
Every woman is unique and will respond to therapy in her own way. Close monitoring and medication adjustments, if necessary, are essential.
