Hormone Pellet Therapy

As we age, hormone levels begin to drop and are no longer the same as when we were younger. The drop often leads to comments such as: “I don’t feel like myself anymore” or “I just don’t have the energy to do the things I want to do.” Low energy, mood changes, trouble thinking clearly, weight gain, and low sex drive are all possible symptoms of hormone imbalance or deficiency.

Balancing and replacing hormones is an important part of healthy aging for both men and women. Restoring hormone balance can be accomplished several ways, all of which help you return to optimal health.

Hormone levels are typically restored by delivery of bioidentical hormones – hormones that are identical to those produced by the body. Bioidentical hormones can be delivered by mouth (capsules or tablets), by transdermal application (cream, gel, patch), by injection, or by the insertion of hormone pellets.

As a clinic with specialized training in hormone pellet therapy, EvolveWell is pleased to offer this convenient hormone delivery system to our clientele.

Hormone pellets contain a bioidentical hormone in a special matrix that allows the slow release of the hormone over a period of months. The hormone pellets are only the size of a grain of rice, but the small pellets offer major benefits.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Is it safe to use hormone pellets?

Hormone pellets use pure bioidentical hormone, which are plant-based and approved by Health Canada. The pellets are chemically identical to what your body produces naturally. The purity of hormones released from the pellets is managed by rigorous quality control procedures.

Our team has specialized training in the insertion and management of hormone pellets. Over one million pellets have been administered across North America

Which hormones are available in pellet form?

Testosterone and estrogen are available as hormone pellets. The pellets release small amounts of hormone directly into the bloodstream. This process is similar to the process of the testes and ovaries during our younger adult years.

How are hormone pellets administered?

First, a numbing agent is applied to the area. Then the hormone pellets are gently inserted under the skin of the hip or buttocks. Hormone pellet insertion is typically a 10-minute office procedure.

How do hormone pellets work?

Once inserted under the skin, hormone pellets begin to dissolve and gradually release the bioidentical hormone. The slow release of hormones helps to maintain consistent hormone levels.

What are the advantages of hormone pellets over other forms of hormone replacement?

Consistency

Because the hormone is released very slowly, hormone levels tend to remain relatively consistent. With tablets, creams, patches or injections, hormone highs and lows are common and may result in symptoms of too much or too little hormone at certain times of the day.

Simplicity

Pellets provide a consistent supply of hormone and are inserted only two to three times per year. This eliminates the daily or weekly need to remember to take or apply hormones.

Delivery

The hormone is delivered slowly and directly into the bloodstream.
