In 1935, hormone pellet therapy was created in Europe to help alleviate the problems women experienced due to hormone production cessation or menopause. This modality was then brought to the United States in 1939 by Dr. R. B. Greenblatt. He introduced it to the Menopausal Clinic, where it is used today more than half a century after its introduction.
Since then, Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy in pellet form has been positively researched and accepted as an effective delivery system available for men and women suffering from the side effects of menopause or andropause (male equivalent of menopause).
How Does Hormone Pellet Therapy Work?
Each hormone pellet is slipped painlessly under the skin, typically in the upper outer buttock. A mild, local anesthetic is used and the procedure is very quick. Once the pellet is inserted, a steady, low dose of natural hormone flows directly into the blood stream whenever your body needs it. When the body is in need of estrogen or testosterone, these tiny implants placed under the skin consistently release small physiologic doses of hormones providing optimal therapy. For decades, these positive research studies have been reported in respected medical journals around the world.
Benefits of pellet therapy
Deliver a very low dose of hormones continuously, 24/7.
Benefits last 3-4 months so patients do not have to use troches, creams or pills every day.
Release hormones directly into the bloodstream, thereby passing the gastrointestinal system and liver.
Consistently proven more effective than oral, injected, or topical methods with regard to sexual function, mood and cognitive function, metabolic function, bone density, urinary and vaginal problems, lipid profiles, breast health and hormone ratios.
Decades of positive research show bio identical hormone pellets to be safe and the most effective hormone delivery method available when properly administered. In fact, hormone pellets are the only form of hormone therapy to closely mimic what the human ovary and testicle do.
