Hormone Pellet Therapy

Hormone pellet treatment restores the body’s balance of testosterone and estrogen, which are required for the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that affects mood.

Some individuals become weary, angry, and unable to recall things, concentrate, or perform without proper serotonin levels.

“Among women who ever used HRT, 41 percent started therapy before they experienced natural or surgical menopause, 44 percent started within one year after menopause, five percent started between two and four years after menopause, and 10 percent started five or more years after menopause”


Pellet therapy is one of the most natural options for women and men to replace serotonin hormone levels.

When placed under the skin, implants slowly release physiologic quantities of bioidentical hormones that are similar to those occurring naturally in the body, allowing for optimum treatment per patient.

This approach is easy to use, convenient, and has an excellent safety record.

There are many reasons why an individual undergoes hormone pellet treatment. These advantages to one's health include:

  • Hormones bypass the liver and gastrointestinal tract and are absorbed straight into the body's circulation system.
  • Hormones are continuously available when the body requires them.
  • Hormone secretion is controlled by your body. When you exercise or are stressed, you absorb more and when you are at rest, you absorb less.
  • Pellets last approximately three to five months on average.
  • Eliminate daily use of creams or gels
  • Effective for mental clarity and sexual functionality.
  • Bone density improves.

Pellets are created from organic plant materials and have the precise molecular structure of the hormones present in the body.

This solid substance is roughly the size of a rice grain and is implanted beneath the skin.

Direct bloodstream distribution prevents liver abnormalities and elevated clotting factors found with oral hormone treatment.
