Get Back to Feeling Young Again

The Most Effective Form of Hormonal Treatment

Both men and women experience hormone deficiency as they age. The changes in testosterone and estrogen can have many effects on health, in varying degrees of seriousness, including everything from fatigue and weight gain to cardiac discomfort and even death. Luckily, bio-identical hormone pellets provide a solution to hormone deficiencies naturally, closing the gap in the same way your body would on its own.

Benefits of bio-identical hormone treatments include:

  • Increased energy levels
  • Improved sleeping
  • Decreased anxiety and irritability
  • Mental focus and clarity
  • Improved sexual function
  • Improved blood pressure and heart function
  • Promotion of fat loss and increased strength
  • Moderation of blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and insulin sensitivity
  • Protection against nerve damage
  • Increased antioxidant levels in tissue and decreased inflammation

  • Agression
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Inability to Focus
  • Low Testosterone

More Effective Than Traditional Hormone Treatments

Although there are many options for hormone replacement treatments available, there are clear advantages to the use of pellets that do not apply to pills, injections, and creams. Creams and pills can distribute hormones unevenly due to the way bodies absorb their contents. Injections can cause emotional ups and downs because of their inconsistent timing. Pellets, however, are designed to stay in the body and support a consistent release of hormones targeted to the appropriate absorption systems.

Dr. Richards Explains Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy

How Does Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Work?

Candidates for this therapy will be reviewed with a consultation and appropriate blood testing. After you are approved, we will schedule an appointment in which a small area of skin over your buttock will be numbed with a local anesthetic. Then, the doctor will make an approximately 1/16 inch incision and insert a very small testosterone pellet into the fat layer. You will not be able to feel the pellet when it is inserted. Finally, the incision will be covered by a strip, which will fall off on its own in 4-5 days. Do not engage in high-impact activities or put direct pressure on the pellets for 5 days after treatment. The process should be repeated every three months for women and four months for men for consistent results.
