At RejuvaMed, our bio-identical hormone pellet method is one of the most effective and safest methods of natural Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) available today. Hormone pellets are the only type of hormone replacement that will deliver balanced hormones to your body 24 hours a day for up to three to five months.
The field of hormone replacement has evolved a great deal in recent years, with new choices for type and dosage emerging. Dr. Andronico has found that many patients would best be managed with pellet hormone therapy. Compared to the daily use of creams or ingestion of pills or even patches, pellets seem to offer a host of benefits.
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 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, 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.
Pellets are prescribed for both men and women that experience a variety of symptoms including:
- Sexual Performance/Desire
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Mood Swings
- Night Sweats
- Menopausal Disorders
- Problems with Sleeping, Losing Weight, and Mentally Focusing
Low testosterone in men and estrogen imbalance in women can lead to serious health issues. Men and women both benefit from bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
- Both will experience: Increased muscle tone
- Enhanced energy levels
- Greater mental clarity
- Increased libido
- Decreased body fat
The various advantages and positive results that come from pellet hormone therapy stem from the consistency in blood levels achieved with this dosage form. Evaluating your specific laboratory results, Dr. Andronico determines the amount of testosterone and estradiol (a form of estrogen) that are needed. Tiny pellets of the necessary hormones, about the size of a grain of rice are produced from safe plant source hormones which are bio-identical and from Brazilian yams and/or soy. The beauty of pellet hormone therapy is that the body draws hormones from pellets as needed; minimizing the risk of side effects such as mood swings. As testosterone and estradiol are gradually absorbed by the body, blood levels rise to amounts that are more reliable.
Pellets are not only convenient and reliable, they are also most effective at mimicking natural physiologic levels of estrone and estradiol, two types of estrogen produced in the ovaries. The addition of testosterone may seem unnecessary, but women need this hormone as well in order to feel their best. The key is identifying and achieving the balance between male and female hormones, and maintaining them with proper follow up.
A few months after the insertion of pellets, we will perform additional lab work to ascertain blood levels of hormones. Evaluation of these levels will guide us in tailoring future dosing and the timing of your next pellets.
Hormone replacement has helped millions of men and women regain vitality and quality of life. Dr. Andronico has extensive training in hormonal balancing, metabolic and nutritional medicine as well as stress disorders and conditions affecting the eyes.
