WHAT IS PELLET THERAPY?
Pellets are very small, custom compounded therapies for symptoms that stem from hormonal imbalances. This treatment keeps hormone levels consistent through the day and avoids rollercoaster-like effects from orally administered or topically administered hormones. The pellets Atlas uses contains bio-identical hormones, derived from natural sources. The pellets contain hormones identical to the ones found in the human body. Studies have shown bio-identical hormones have fewer side effects than synthetic hormones.

Within 7-10 days after your pellet insertion, Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy pellets (BHRT) begins to work. Once a pellet is inserted in the gluteal area, a consistent dose of bio-identical (naturally derived) hormones enters the bloodstream. Every BHRT pellet is created with patients’ unique physiology in mind. Because of this, every treatment is tailored to the patient and will have the greatest possible success in helping them achieve balance.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BHRT PELLETS?
There are many benefits to BHRT pellets over traditional pellets. The first is that the hormones within BHRT pellets are bio-identical, meaning that they are structurally the same as naturally occurring human hormones. The second is that these hormones are found in nature and are plant derived. This implies that the hormones used in BHRT pellet therapy are more natural and may have fewer negative interactions within the body. Another benefit of pellet therapy is that the pellets remain within the body and consistently provide the dosing that the body requires. This contrasts with other hormone replacement therapy administrations in which the hormone is provided in spurts, such as pills and creams, resulting in a roller-coaster effect of relief to discomfort for the patient.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM BHRT PELLET THERAPY?
Each patient’s symptoms are unique and each patient’s paths to optimization are unique. Most patients report some symptom resolution in as little as two to four weeks, but full optimization may take up to 6 months. Your journey will be specialized to fit your specific needs. Just as it doesn’t take you 1-2 weeks to get out of balance, it doesn’t resolve that quickly either.
ARE HORMONE REPLACEMENT PELLETS FDA APPROVED?
Although Synthetic hormones (HRT) are FDA approved, the FDA cannot approve or patent natural pellet therapy (BHRT) because it consists of natural occurring substances. For example, water cannot be FDA approved or patented. The drawbacks of synthetic hormones (HRT), is that they do not resemble your natural hormone molecules, which results in more side effects, which often leads to patients stopping therapies within a year. Studies have demonstrated that bio-identical hormones are more effective at balancing hormonal chemistry because of their molecular similarities to natural hormones. Even without chemical sensitivity, many people would prefer to limit the non-natural substances they introduce into their bodies, especially one that will be absorbed in whole by the body, through the skin. Studies have shown that synthetic hormone (HRT) replacement therapy may increase your risk for heart attack, stroke, breast cancer, and blood clots.
