What are bio-identical hormones?
Bio-identical hormones are plant-based compounds specifically formulated to match the molecular structure of human hormones. Synthetics, however, are engineered not to match in order to be patented. The pellets are compounded according to the highest industry standards using the best quality botanical ingredients available. They are derived from a natural plant source of soy and other plant-based ingredients. No horse urine. No fillers – just pure, natural, biologically identical hormones – plain and simple.
Not all hormone replacement therapies are created equal
SottoPelle® Therapy is a unique hormone replacement method that delivers the right kind of hormone (biologically identical), in the right amounts (based on testing and proper analysis of the results), using the right delivery system (pellets).
If you’ve tried other methods of hormone replacement, you probably experienced the emotional ups and downs they can produce. Why? Because your hormones were still unbalanced, something that SottoPelle® Therapy can address. Ask any of our patients. They can’t believe the difference SottoPelle® makes – from increased energy and vitality to a renewed sense of emotional and physical well-being. And there’s more good news… pellets can last from three to six months or longer!
How do I get started?
It’s easy. First schedule an appointment with our staff. They will go over our procedures and policies for having a consultation and your insertion. On the day of your appointment, the doctor will discuss the results of your blood tests with you and prescribe the right amount of hormone for your unique needs. It is that simple.
What is the procedure like?
The small hormone pellets are slipped painlessly under the skin, typically in the hip. A mild, local anesthetic is used and the procedure takes less than five minutes. Once the pellets are inserted, a steady, low dose of natural hormone flows directly into the blood stream whenever the body needs it. A woman’s body can then control the release of the hormone just as it did when the ovaries were working normally. Repeat treatments involve a brief visit to a SottoPelle® office a few times per year. That’s it!
