Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy
As we age, the body naturally begins to produce less and less of certain hormones. It’s the reduction of these hormones that cause symptoms such as trouble sleeping, decreased sex drive, mood swings, weight gain, etc. Common forms of hormone therapy, such as oral and trans-dermal, can cause drastic ups-and-downs of hormone levels resulting in drastic energy and mood fluctuations for the patient. Not to mention the bad side-effects they can have on health. Doctors, researchers, and patients themselves have found hormone replacement pellet therapy extremely effective in comparison.
At Trinity Medical Group in Lakeland, Florida, Dr. Adam Parker, D.O. offers FDA approved bioidentical hormone replacement pellet therapy to patients seeking an all-natural and effective solution to their hormone imbalance symptoms.

WHAT IS HORMONE REPLACEMENT PELLET THERAPY?
What sets hormone replacement pellet therapy apart from other common forms of hormone replacement therapies are the pellets. The pellets, which are smaller than a grain of rice, are placed in the fatty tissue, just underneath the skin. The plant-based, bio-identical pellets work by releasing estrogen or testosterone consistently back into the bloodstream after implantation. This release of hormones from the pellet into the body most closely mimics the actions of healthy ovaries and testicles in terms of hormone balance in the blood stream. Because the supply of hormones is released at a consistent level, there is no dramatic dip or impact on your health and the body is not subjected to a roller-coaster ride of hormone levels. The hormone pellet implantation procedure is easily performed right in the office and requires no anesthetic.
WHAT ARE HORMONE PELLETS?
Hormone pellets are created to match each patient’s unique needs to ensure precise dosing. To accomplish this, a comprehensive blood work analysis is completed for each patient first. This determines the dose of hormones to be put into the pellets.
The needed hormones are then compounded into a pellet by a compounding pharmacist using strict federal guidelines. The hormones used in the pellets are all-natural and plant based. Pellet therapy is ideal for patients who want the benefits of a natural hormone without the drawbacks of other synthetic hormone replacement therapy options.
There are no known side effects of the hormone replacement pellet therapy treatment. Recent light on the dangers from standard, non-pellet, forms of hormone replacement has made pellet therapy more of a highly sought after therapeutic choice. Hormone pellets are deemed the safest form of hormone replacement therapy currently available– as well as the most effective.
