Testosterone Therapy

Pellet Therapy

Bio-Identical pellet therapy is quickly becoming the most popular form of hormone therapy for women.

Bio-Identical hormones are plant-based, natural substances that our bodies can metabolize in the way it was designed to do, minimizing side effects. These compounded bio-identicals can be matched to each woman’s unique needs, something that’s impossible with mass-manufactured products.

Hormone imbalance can begin as early as in our twenties, and becomes more prevalent as we age. Countless women and men have now made the switch to natural bio-identical hormone therapy. These human-identicals have long been preferred for hormone therapy in Japan, France and other European countries. They’ve been the subjects of many research studies on hormone therapy in which significant health benefits have been reported for both women and men. Data also continues to indicate that receiving hormone replacement therapy at the start of menopause can be very important to a woman’s ongoing health.

Women using bio-identical hormone therapy often report numerous benefits shortly after starting the therapy, such as: increased energy, improved mental focus and clarity, improved weight control, improved bone density, improved libido, as well as a decrease in menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, and headaches.

Testosterone Therapy

Men begin losing testosterone at a rate of 3% to 10% per year beginning at age 30. Current medical research now defines a male equivalent to menopause as andropause. Because the testosterone used is totally natural, it is ideal for men who want the benefits of a bio-identical hormone without the drawbacks of a synthetic. Symptoms of testosterone deficiency in men include fatigue, lack of mental acuity, loss of libido, and difficulty achieving or sustaining an erection.

Why bio-identical hormone pellet therapy for men? Hormonal needs for men have received national attention, but with marginal treatment options available. Hormonal treatments for men can be expensive, require daily consumption, and, in many cases, need to be carefully timed with their partner’s needs for normal sexual activities and pleasure.

Bio-identical hormone pellet therapy is the only method of testosterone therapy that gives sustained and consistent testosterone levels throughout the day for four to six months without any “roller coaster” blood levels of testosterone, which can result in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient.We have had excellent results treating men with bio-identical hormone therapy.

There have been only a few reported side effects, which are all minor and treatable. Men find themselves lacking in sexual desire, gaining weight, losing muscle mass, and feeling sluggish, depressed and irritable. Yet, they believe they must endure these body and hormonal changes as
part of aging.
