Men have a somewhat notorious reputation for avoiding a doctor visit at all costs, preferring to deal with health problems in private or believing that they may have to simply suffer in silence. In reality, quite the opposite is true about many bodily symptoms that surface for men in mid-life, from a low sex drive, to hair loss, weight gain, and even depression. There is no need to live with these issues as an assumed part of the aging process. With proper testing and medical evaluation, the cause for such symptoms could be a simple as low testosterone levels or other hormone related issues that can be settled with noninvasive, natural treatment methods.
Medical studies have demonstrated that a low testosterone condition puts men at an increased risk for heart attack and stroke, as well as contributing to the development of chronic diseases, such as diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Thus, beyond wanting be get rid of uncomfortable symptoms associated with imbalanced hormones, or low T, this is a health issue that men need to take seriously to protect their long-term health.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is one of the leading options for addressing symptoms of low T in men, mainly for its long track record of success but also for being produced from ingredients derived from nature. The benefits are tremendous, offering a natural solution using custom compounded doses, a non-invasive delivery method, and reduced chances for improper handling and mishaps that can occur with other synthetic options.
Pellet therapy is a method for delivering BHRT. Called pellet therapy because the medical dose of custom created hormone compound is contained in a small rice-sized pellet that is inserted in a man’s hip area. This pellet is than slowly metabolized by the body over the course of a treatment cycle, usually about 3-4 months. This delivery method is preferred because it closely imitates the body’s natural hormone secretion process. This greatly reduces the chance for the emergence of many side effects associated with other hormone transfer options.
