For many years I have struggled to balance the controversies regarding hormonal therapy with the significant and life disrupting symptoms suffered by women with hormonal imbalance. Severe hot flashes decreased sex drive, lack of energy and just feeling out of place are not symptoms conducive to a happy and healthy life. Many other areas of life are negatively impacted by this. Furthermore the underlying health concerns from hormonal imbalance are just as significant. Finally I have found a therapy option that I feel to be safe and extremely effective to help women suffering from hormonal issues. SottoPelle® Therapy is an all-natural bio-identical hormone replacement therapy that specializes in the use of subcutaneous testosterone and estradiol pellets. This method was first used in 1937 in England and Australia. The use of biologically identical, non-synthetic, testosterone and estradiol is safe, and the use of pellets as the delivery method provides is effective. The delivery method of pellets allows for the continual release of the hormone - the key to improving brain and muscle function. Other delivery methods result in sporadic, or a "roller coaster," effect in the delivery and release of hormones within the body. These methods include pills, patches, injectables, and creams. Literature shows that the use of pellets and all natural testosterone carries less risk compared to synthetic testosterone. We use a science based approach to prescribing (dosing) the patient the appropriate amount of testosterone and/or estradiol based on specific factors about the individual and their blood analysis. This results in achieving physiologic hormonal balance-something research has shown is absolutely vital to good health and well-being. Of all hormonal replacement modalities, only pellet therapy can provide this balance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I'm excited to provide this therapy to my patients and look forward to meeting you.
