BHRT- What is it?
Bio – identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is different than other mainstream hormone therapies because bio identical hormones are the same in chemical structure as the hormones made by the human body. Because every man’s exact level of testosterone is different, a doctor can determine the right level of hormones for each individual.
Pellet Therapy uses hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate the body’s normal hormone levels. Patients have found that bio-identical hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is extremely effective. Implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones providing optimal therapy.
Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy – which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient – BHRT, is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 4 to 6 months, without and “roller coaster” effect.
Because the hormone used are completely natural, Pellet Therapy is ideal for patients wanting the benefits of a natural hormone, without the drawbacks of a synthetic.
What is Andropause?
It is often referred to as male menopause and is a result of low testosterone levels throughout the body. Reduced testosterone can cause a variety of symptoms that limits a man’s quality of life. Hormones play an important role in the male body and men begin to experience a decline in their normal hormone levels beginning at 30. Around 40 – 55 the levels drop dramatically. The bodily changes you are experiencing are not just in your head. The loss of testosterone can lead to many symptoms and lower your quality of life. Low testosterone does not need to take the joy out of your prime years of life.

What is a Hormone Pellet?
Hormone replacement using pellet implants has been around for more than 70 years! In fact, scientists have published positive research on the benefits of this therapy in authoritative international journals for decades.
Bioidentical pellet therapy was originally developed in Europe during the 1930s. It proved an excellent treatment for hormone deficiencies, especially in menopause. The highly-respected pioneer of endocrinology, Dr. Robert B. Greenblatt, learned about this method and introduced it to his U.S. colleagues in 1939. Today, practitioners use pellet implants to restore hormonal balance in men and women of all ages. Best of all they are natural, safe, and effective.
Pellet Implants: Safe, Effective, Convenient BHRT
When properly administered, the pellet delivery system provides safe and effective BHRT. In fact, it remains the only form of delivery that closely mirrors what the human ovary and testicle do. This method ensures the same steady, around-the-clock, low dosages the body once created. You won’t have to change patches, rub on creams, or remember to take a pill. And you won’t experience the radical surges and drops in blood levels as with other methods. Pellet implants even deliver more when the body needs it—like during exercise or periods of stress.
The ideal hormone delivery system
Right amount of hormones
Creams, pills and patches all deliver wildly, inconsistent amounts of hormones unnaturally released into the body that does not mimic how the body naturally delivers hormones. Pellet delivery system is consistent and ongoing as the body requires it. You don’t have to worry about taking a pill, or a patch falling off, or a million other factors that make creams, pills, and patches an unreliable way to deliver hormones. Pellets remain the only delivery system that provides steady blood serum levels over time as was clearly documented in a 1993 study.
Simple Safe Pellet Insertion
Once inserted, a steady, low dose of natural hormone flows directly into the blood stream whenever the body needs it. This gives the body the ability to control the release of the hormone just as it did when the ovaries and testicles were working normally. Our method utilizes a proprietary dosing site to prescribe the precise hormones, specifically for your needs.
Benefits of Testosterone Replacement For Men:
Promote and Preserve Bone Density
As we age and our hormone levels shift dramatically, maintaining normal bone density becomes critical to good health. Fluctuating levels of estrogen and testosterone decrease bone strength and increase the chance of fractures.
Hormone deficiency cause of your body’s systems to fall. That’s why your bones lose calcium, your blood pressure may be a little (or a lot) higher than it used to be, your arteries are starting to show wear and tear, and why you just don’t have the energy or vitality you used to. Have you ever wondered why you just don’t feel like yourself anymore? Because your body is not balanced.
