      Hormone Pellet Therapy

      Hormone Pellet Therapy Naples FL

      Hormone Pellet Therapy is a form of hormone replacement therapy used in both women and men to normalize low or imbalanced hormones. Hormone imbalances caused by declining hormone levels impact both women and men as they age – but in different ways. Men typically experience declines in testosterone levels, while women are primarily impacted by reduced estrogen as they enter menopause.

      Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a personalized, natural approach to replace hormones according to each individual’s unique hormone profile. Long considered an unavoidable consequence of aging, sex hormone can be restored using BHRT via Hormone Pellet Therapy.

      Hormone Pellet Therapy is just one of the methods used to administer bioidentical hormones. It is an implant inserted beneath the skin that dissolves over time, gradually releasing the necessary hormones into your body. Other methods for BHRT available at Improving Your Health include pills, creams, gels, patches, sprays, shots, or vaginal inserts.

      However, Hormone Pellet Therapy improves health conditions such as fatigue, menopause, and low bone density at higher rates than other BHRT approaches. Hormone Pellet Therapy is one of the most effective tools we offer to optimize male and female health and sexuality.

      What is Hormone Pellet Therapy?

      BHRT using Hormone Pellet Therapy involves introducing bioidentical hormones into the body to correct any hormonal imbalances that you are experiencing. It is a natural alternative with minimal side effects compared to traditional hormonal replacement therapies that introduce synthetic hormones into the body.

      Bioidentical hormone pellets are produced from either testosterone or estrogen and bound with natural cholesterol. They are engineered to dissolve into the body slowly over three to four months and mimic your body's natural release of hormones.

      Bioidentical hormones can be precisely formulated for each patient’s individual needs, while synthetic hormones are patented and do not differ from patient to patient. Bioidentical hormones are designed to be molecularly identical and mimic the effect of hormones produced by your body. Bioidentical hormones are produced from plant estrogens that are chemically identical to the hormones that your body naturally produces. Made from plants like yams, flax, and soybeans, BHRT can be easily customized to fit your specific needs – without the side effects of synthetic hormones.

      In men, conditions like erectile dysfunction, for example, can be successfully addressed with Hormone Pellet Therapy, along with other ED treatment options we offer.

      For women, Hormone Pellet Therapy can improve the symptoms that accompany perimenopause, menopause and other conditions that create hormone imbalances in women - alleviating symptoms like hot flashes, mood changes, weight gain and diminished sex drive. Hormone issues can also arise as a result of a hysterectomy or ovarian insufficiency – or even seemingly unrelated conditions like metabolic syndrome, adrenal fatigue, and thyroid disorders.

      Whatever the cause of hormonal imbalance, Hormone Pellet Therapy is the most effective and natural method for restoring hormonal balance.

      How do hormonal imbalances affect your health?

      Hormonal imbalances can impact not only your sexual function but your physical health as well, with symptoms that may include:

      • Decreased sex drive and limited sexual pleasure
      • Increased symptoms of menopause
      • Decreased bone density and muscle mass
      • Decreased cognitive function
      • Increased risk of heart disease and stroke

      Benefits of Hormone Pellet Therapy

      Both women and men can experience the benefits of BHRT using Hormone Pellet Therapy, including:

      • Reduced symptoms (e.g., hot flashes and night sweats)
      • Improved metabolism
      • Weight loss
      • Improved lipid levels
      • Reduced osteoporosis risk
      • Increased bone strength and reduced bone loss
      • Improved mental function, including reduced brain fog, anxiety, irritability and depression
      • Increased ability to build muscle mass and strength
      • Increased hair growth
      • Increased sex drive
      • Improved sexual function and stamina (including improvements in Erectile Dysfunction)
      • Higher energy levels
      • Enhanced feelings of wellbeing
      • Reduced fluid retention and bloating
      • Resolved sleep problems


      How does Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy work?

      The pellets used in Hormone Pellet Therapy are implanted under your skin. During the brief and minimally invasive procedure, Dr. Rubin implants bioidentical pellets into the soft tissue just beneath the top layer of skin - typically within the upper buttocks.

      How long does it take for BHRT to start working?

      Some individuals begin to experience mild relief within a few weeks, but usually, it takes up to three months to appreciate the full effects of hormone therapy. Men sometimes experience quicker results.

      How many Hormone Pellet Therapy treatments are needed?

      Ongoing consults are required to continue treatment with Hormone Pellet Therapy. The implants dissolve over time and need to be replaced.

      How long do the effects of BHRT last?

      The effects can be maintained indefinitely as long as you continue replacing your bioidentical hormone pellets as necessary. Regular consultations at Improving Your Health to maintain your hormone balance and sexual health are essential, especially if you begin to notice a return of symptoms, so that your condition can be evaluated, and next steps can be taken in a timely manner, including modifying your BHRT treatment with Hormone Pellet Therapy.

      What should I expect from a hormone-related sexual health consultation?

      Dr. Rubin always begins with a functional evaluation of your body and your individual health profile. A hormone-related sexual health consultation includes looking at all aspects of how your body is functioning – from your hormonal balance to your sexual performance issues. Dr. Rubin then works with each patient to create an individualized medical plan tailored to your sexual health goals.

      Our functional medicine approach means the goal is understanding the root cause of any hormonal or sexual issues you may be experiencing, as opposed to simply treating symptoms. With a holistic approach to hormonal and sexual health, we prioritize long-lasting health, not just short-term results.

      At Improving Your Health, Dr. Rubin creates personalized plans based on each client’s unique assessment. He recognizes the nuanced differences among his clients, with the understanding that no two treatment plans should ever be the same – because every man and every woman are unique.

      Not all cases are appropriate for BHRT Hormone Pellet Therapy. In cases where erectile dysfunction, for example, is caused by psychological issues such as low self-esteem, nerve damage, cancer treatments or surgery, hormone imbalance may not be an issue and BHRT with Hormone Pellet Therapy may not be appropriate. It is important to have a thorough medical evaluation before introducing BHRT into your treatment regimen.

      If our Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy protocol at Improving Your Health is right for you, it may simply include Hormone Pellet Therapy alone, or it could involve a variety of other approaches to maximize results. From nutritional supplements to acupuncture or medical weight loss, our goal is always to maximize hormonal balance, sexual function and treat underlying causes of your hormonal complexities. If hormone imbalances are impacting your health and sexual function, BHRT utilizing Hormone Pellet Therapy may be the best route for you.

      You and Dr. Rubin will explore the results of your tests and consider all of your options together.
