What is Pellet Therapy?
Hormone pellet therapy is a well-tested method of treating hormone imbalance, with countless years of proven success. It is a completely safe treatment method, and backed by hundreds of scientific studies. Before learning more about hormone pellet therapy, it is first important to understand the purpose and function of hormones in the human body.
Hormones are responsible for the regulation of your entire body, including your metabolism, immunity, and mental function. There are a variety of hormones, each having an individual effect on the body – as you can imagine, they play an incredibly important role in the healthy function of your body. However, aging generally results in the decline of hormone levels, leading to insufficiencies and imbalance. This wreaks havoc on your internal system, and commonly causes an “off feeling” that many men and women encounter as they reach middle age.
Thankfully, pellet therapy offers a simple solution to this issue. A small pellet is made of natural, plant-based hormones that are specifically engineered to replicate your body’s natural hormone levels, giving your system the help it needs to get back on track. Pellet therapy specifically uses two all-natural hormones: testosterone or estradiol. Your specific pellets will be formulated with a dose of hormones customized to meet your individual needs. Only slightly larger than a grain of rice, each tiny pellet contains the power to rebalance your body.
Pellets are inserted under the skin of the upper buttock while the area is numbed with a local anesthetic, a simple and quick process. They will completely dissolve over the next 3 to 6 months. For women, pellets are inserted every 3-5 months, while men can expect a dose every 4 to 6 months. This method of consistent delivery ensures that your hormone levels will remain consistent, without the fluctuations of other methods such as injections and pills.

Benefits of Pellet Therapy
As previously mentioned, pellet therapy is preferable to other methods, such as injections and pills. Many studies show that pellet therapy is more effective then other forms of bio-identical hormone replacement. Also, the convenience of pellet therapy, as well as the long-lasting and consistently level effects make it a top choice. Hormone pellet therapy and weight loss also often go hand in hand, which is a significant benefit that attracts many patients.
Other benefits include:
- Improved energy levels
- Higher libido levels
- Mental clarity
- Relief from mood swings or depression
Studies are also showing that another one of the positive hormone therapy side effects is the potential for lowering the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis. To learn more about other benefits, continue reading here.
