Hormone depletion is a major cause of many symptoms and conditions associated with aging. These can include common patient complaints such as:

  • Fatigue and lack of energy
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Mood changes and irritability
  • Weight gain and loss of muscle mass
  • Unexplained aches and pains
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Dry, thin skin
  • Increased risk of chronic disease

If you are experiencing any of the above conditions, you don’t have to suffer through without a solution. There are major benefits from the proper prescribing and use of bio-identical hormones.

Bio-identical hormones are sourced from plants and are chemically identical to your body’s own hormones. The effectiveness of prescribed hormones is also highly variable depending on the route of administration that is chosen. Adverse effects of hormone replacement occur when synthetic or non-bio-identical hormones are given, often in undesirable doses or routes of administration.

At the Institute for Progressive Medicine, our doctors are skilled in assessing hormone deficiency and prescribing appropriate bio-identical, natural hormone replacement therapy. Administration is oral, sublingual, trans-dermal, by injection or by pellet depending on the best method of delivery for a specific therapy.

Hormone Pellets – The Strongest and Most Effective Treatment

Hormone pellets are smaller than a grain of rice and cannot be felt once inserted under the skin. With pellets, hormone levels stay elevated 24 hours a day, so there are no dosing peaks and valleys as with other methods of hormone delivery. Pellets are usually good for 3-6 months in women and 4 months in men. We measure hormone levels before putting in pellets and then again one month later to see where blood levels are.

Hormone pellets are the strongest available hormone therapy. We have been using hormone pellets safely for over a decade. The procedure is very simple, quick and often nearly pain-free. We see fantastic results in both men and women using this method of delivery.
