Howard Health and Wellness is committed to helping men and women restore and maintain vitality and well-being through natural and safe hormonal solutions. Dr. Howard chooses to prescribe bioidentical hormones, meaning they are the same molecular structure as the body’s natural hormones. Bioidentical hormones are available in variety of formulations, including hormone patches, topical creams, vaginal inserts, and in some cases pills. Another choice for delivery of hormones is the hormone pellet which is placed under the skin into the body fat and is an excellent way to provide continuous hormone therapy in both men and women.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement with Pellet Therapy:
Bioidentical hormone replacement pellets are small (rice sized) and are placed under the skin to release a specific measured amount of hormones. Pellet therapy delivers consistent and physiologic (meaning what your body would make) levels of hormones and can last for several months. Both estradiol and testosterone are available in pellet form.
During your initial consultation Dr. Howard will take a detailed history including discussing nutrition and fitness and then order baseline testing which may be from the blood, saliva and/or urine. This testing helps to determine which method of hormone regulation may be best for you. The pellets are placed in the upper buttocks after being numbed with a local anesthetic. The procedure takes only 10-15 minutes. The pellets dissolve over time and can last 3-4 months typically. For women, Dr. Howard strongly recommends balancing estrogens, progesterone, and testosterone. Additional creams may also be recommended. Dr. Howard will discuss all of this with you and answer all your questions regarding hormone therapy.
