Pellet Therapy Austin, Texas
BioVitality Testosterone and Estrogen Pellets
Pellets are tiny, custom-compounded therapies for symptoms that stem from hormonal imbalances. The BHRT (Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy) pellet therapy BioVitality offers utilizes bioidentical hormones that are like those found in the human body. Studies have shown that bioidentical hormones have fewer side effects than synthetic hormones. The body knows how to best utilize the hormones in pellet therapy because they are identical to the molecules that your body was producing.
BioVitality uses highly specialized pharmacies that are registered with the FDA in every step of our BHRT. The pellets used at BioVitality are compliant with the FDA process of sterility and endotoxin control and the pharmacies providing pellets for BioVitality employ environmental monitoring for every pellet batch made. The creation of hormones for our method of pellet therapy is all overseen by a dedicated FDA compliance officer.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a treatment for many common and debilitating symptoms that are often overlooked by medical providers. Some of these symptoms include exhaustion, stress, foggy thinking, weight gain, sleep disturbances, and so much more. Often, people with symptoms like these are suffering from hormonal imbalance. These ailments are treated by getting to the root cause of these complex conditions and returning the patient to a state of hormone balance. BHRT is a simple method for correcting these complex issues through effective hormone balance therapy.
Dealing with a hormone imbalance can be a stressful experience. BioVitality only uses a certified medical physician that will administer your pellets. Treatment takes approximately twenty minutes from start to finish and lasts approximately 3 months for females and 4 months for males.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is Pellet Therapy?
A. Pellet Therapy is a form of hormone therapy that seeks to return the hormone balance to youthful levels in men and women.
Q. How do I know if I’m a candidate for pellets?
A. Symptoms may vary widely from depression and anxiety to night sweats and sleeplessness for example. You will be given a lab slip to have blood work done which will determine your hormone levels. Once the doctor reviews and determines if you are a candidate, we will then schedule an appointment for insertion. We can do insertions on the same day your labs are reviewed with your doctor.
Q. Do I have blood work done before each Treatment?
A. No, only initially and 5-6 weeks later to set your dosing. You may have it done again if there are significant changes.
Q. What are the pellets made from?
A. They are made from wild yams and soy. Wild yams and soy have the highest concentration of hormones of any substance. There are no known allergens associated with wild yams and soy, because once the hormone is made it is no longer yam or soy.
Q. How long will the treatment last?
A. Pellets last 3-6 months depending on the person. Everyone is different, so it depends on how you feel and what the doctor determines is right for you. If you are very active, under a lot of stress, or the weather is extremely hot, your treatment may not last as long. Absorption rate is based on cardiac output.
Q. Is the therapy FDA approved?
A. What the pellets are made of is FDA approved and regulated, the process of making pellets is regulated by the State Pharmacy Board, and the distribution is regulated by the DEA and Respective State Pharmacy Boards. The PROCEDURE of placing pellets is NOT an FDA approved procedure. The pellets are derived from wild yams and soy, are all natural and are bio-identical, meaning they are the exact replication of what the body makes.
Q. How are they administered?
A. Your practitioner will implant the pellets in the fat under the skin of the hip. A small incision is made in the hip. The pellets are inserted. No stitch is required.
Q. Does it matter if I’m on birth control?
A. No, the doctor can determine what your hormone needs are even if you are on birth control.
Q. Are there any side effects?
A. The majority of side effects are temporary and typically only happen on the first dose. All are very treatable. There are no serious side effects.
Q. What if I’m already on HRT of some sort like creams, patches, pills?
A. This is an easy transition. The doctor will be able to determine your needs even though you may be currently taking these other forms of HRT.
Q. What if I’ve had breast cancer?
A. Breast cancer survivors and/or those who have a history of breast cancer in their family may still be a candidate; however, this will be determined by the physician. You should schedule a consultation with the Doctor.
