Have you heard about bio-identical hormone pellet therapy? While this treatment for hormonal imbalance has been around for a long time, bio-identical hormone pellet therapy has recently seen a great resurgence. That’s because people around the world are experiencing first-hand, the amazing benefits of bio-identical pellet therapy.

Hormones rejuvenate, regenerate and restore. They serve as powerful chemical messengers sent to specific cells throughout your body to orchestrate many of your body’s internal functions and how your organs behave. Even a small fluctuation in levels can cause big changes in cells or even disrupt the balance throughout your entire body. Too much or too little of a hormone can have serious health consequences.

By “bio-identical” we mean that the biochemical structure of the hormone is perfectly matched to the hormone produced in our bodies by the endocrine system. Bio-Identical hormones used in pellet hormone replacement therapy are neither a horse’s hormone nor artificially formulated (synthetic) that is intentionally manufactured to be slightly different from human hormone in order to patent it.

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 man and woman’s unique needs, something that’s impossible with mass-manufactured products.

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.

What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy?

Bio identical hormones are non-synthetic, plant-based hormones that are identical biologically to human hormone. The best analogy to differentiate bio identical from synthetic hormones is to look at the hormones and the receptors they activate (hundreds of thousands in our bodies) as a lock and key. The hormone is the key and the receptors they work upon are the locks. Bio-identical hormones fit perfectly in the lock, and unlock all of the beneficial effects of hormones, and when dosed properly, as with our Pellet Therapy method, have minimal to no side effects. Synthetic hormones, however, fit in the lock, but do not turn the lock and release many untoward side effects.

The bio-identical hormone pellet method is one of the most widely studied, effective and safest methods of natural Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) available.
