Are Pellets New? Wondering Why You haven’t heard of Pellet Therapy until now

Part of the reason you have not heard of Pellets is because Pellets are not big profit area for “Big Pharma” because they are not patented or marketed in the United States. Here in the USA, mainly small neighborhood Compounding Pharmacies make pellets.
Another reason is that many traditional doctors who have not been trained believe if it is not an FDA approved drug, then it might be dangerous.

Is Pellet Therapy backed by science?

Yes. Note however that most of the research studies on pellets is out of Europe (England, Australia, Germany and the Netherlands) because their pharmaceutical companies produce pellets and they have been using it since the 1930’s. See section on “Studies” below to read some of them.

What are “Pellets” anyway?

Pellets consist of natural Bio-identical Estradiol or Testosterone or Testosterone/Arimidex compressed to a size slightly larger than a grain of rice.

The implant procedure is simple and painless.

How often are Pellets needed?

Average is 4-6 months. But, high stress causes need for earlier placement in some.

Are Pellets all I need?

It depends on your blood work result. Other hormones and/or Supplements may also be needed based on your blood work.

Hormonal problems can start at any age. We go based on symptoms & blood work. No one is too old or too young.

Blood work/Tests?
