Hormone Pellet Therapy

Hormone pellet therapy is an innovative approach to manage the decline in sex hormones, such as Estrogen and Testosterone, due to aging. This treatment approach utilizes bioidentical hormone replacement pellet therapy to replace hormones with slow releasing implants under the skin mimicking your own production of such hormones.
Hormone Pellet Therapy

This method, effective for both males and females, aims to regulate hormonal imbalances by releasing bio-identical hormones derived from plants, offering a natural alternative to traditional hormone replacement therapies. Recognized for its holistic approach to health and personalized care, hormone pellet therapy stands as a beacon of hope for those seeking to alleviate the discomforts brought by hormonal imbalances.

Understanding Hormone Pellet Therapy

Understanding the intricacies of Hormone Pellet Therapy (HPT) reveals its role as a pivotal treatment in hormone replacement therapy. The method’s uniqueness stems from its approach to delivering hormones:

  • Pellet Composition and Origin: The pellets are crafted from organic plant materials, possessing the exact molecular structure as human hormones, ensuring biocompatibility and natural integration into the body’s hormonal system.
  • Procedure and Duration: John Gonzales, PA inserts these tiny, rice-grain-sized pellets under the skin, typically in the hip area. This placement allows for a direct release of hormones into the bloodstream, providing a steady and consistent hormone level. Women may experience the benefits for 3 to 5 months, while men enjoy a slightly longer duration of 4 to 6 months, reducing the need for frequent medication management.
  • Advantages Over Traditional Methods: Unlike creams, pills, or patches that can lead to hormonal fluctuations, HPT offers a stable delivery of hormones, minimizing risks associated with oral hormone therapy. This method not only ensures consistent hormonal levels but also eliminates the daily hassle of hormone management, making it a preferred choice for many.

HPT’s foundation in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) emphasizes its commitment to mirroring the body’s natural hormonal environment, addressing deficiencies with precision and care. Through a detailed examination and hormone-level testing, healthcare professionals tailor the pellet hormone formulation to each individual’s needs, ensuring a personalized treatment plan.
