Bio-identical hormones are natural, plant-derived compounds that have the same molecular structure as those made by the human body. Unlike synthetic hormones, our bodies can readily recognize and metabolize them. Bio-identical pellets have been used successfully by patients throughout Europe, Japan and the Unites States since the 1930s. SottoPelle® bio-identical hormones are made by compressing natural bio-identical hormones into very small pellets. All ingredients are extracted from natural plants and made into a usable form. All ingredients in the pellets are FDA approved and regulated. SottoPelle uses only the highest grade of natural hormones that are all completely bio-identical. No binding agents or chemicals are used in the pellet production process that are not 100% natural bio-identical, making them the purest bio-identical pellets on the market. Each lot of bio-identical pellets are analyzed by an independent lab for quality.
In women, hormonal imbalance may cause symptoms such as night sweats, sleeplessness, lack of energy, forgetfulness, anxiety, depression and lack of libido. Bio-identical hormone therapy seeks to return women to natural hormone balance. Hormone pellet dosage is individualized for every woman. The pellets are placed under the skin using mild local anesthetic. For most women the benefits of pellet therapy will last from 4 to 6 months or longer.
Bio-identical hormone pellet therapy is unique in that it allows for a consistent absorption of hormone therapy on a continuous basis. Hormones are released in the right amount to maintain normal hormonal physiology based on the demands of your body at a particle time. The pellets reproduce steady and consistent serum levels and therefore are biologically available whenever needed. Bio-identical hormone therapy is found to be both effective and safe.
Side effects are found to be rare. Initially there may be some slight transient breast tenderness lasting 1 to 2 weeks after the first insertion. Some women may also experience some minimal hair growth or acne after the first insertion. If any side effects do occur, changes can be made with subsequent pellet insertions.
By balancing your hormones we can help you achieve a level of well-being you haven’t felt in ages. Along with hormone balance, proper nutrition, staying active mentally and physically and maintaining strong relationships are all vital to your total health. Remember: MIND, BODY and SPIRIT!
