Although they are not naturally produced by the body, you body recognizes them as the same, and biochemically reacts to them with the same effect. Using our MedHealth360 program you can also control your weight, increase your energy levels and feel good both inside and out.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) has actually been used in the United States since 1938. Bio-identical Hormones are all natural plant based products made from yams and a small amount of soy. These hormones have the same molecular structure as the hormones produced within our own bodies. There are numerous studies worldwide that document the benefits and safety of BHRT. These studies also report a lower incidence of side effects when compared with prescription drugs. BHRT should not be confused with “synthetic hormones which are typically found in many creams, gels and injectables used for hormone replacement.
BHRT is a short, simple in-office procedure using local anesthesia. Your doctor will insert the pellets into the fatty layer just beneath your skin. In men and women, a small incision is made in the buttocks or in the lower abdomen. The process is painless and takes just a few minutes.
One of greatest advantages of pellet therapy is the low incidence of side effects. Although extremely rare, side effects may include: slight bruising, minor bleeding, infection or extrusion of the pellets.
Your doctor will interpret your blood tests and determine an appropriate dosage specifically designed for your body. Women who receive estrogen can feel significantly better in 24-36 hours. Men and women who receive testosterone will start to feel relief of symptoms in 10-14 days. After your pellet insertion, you should avoid vigorous exercise for a few days as directed by your physician. Your doctor will evaluate your hormone levels on an ongoing basis and monitor any future changes needed.
You can obtain BHRT Pellets by scheduling an appointment with a trained, certified physician who specializes in hormonal therapy. In order to obtain the correct dosage and proper placement of the pellets, the doctor should be knowledgeable and specifically trained in pellet therapy!

Programs Individualized To Your Needs
MedHealth 360 recognizes that wellness requires the coordination of proper nutrition, hormone replacement, exercise and mobility. When it comes to your health, you cannot address one area without addressing the others. They are all interconnected. This is why many patients fail simple diet and nutrition programs for example. If their hormone levels are low, or they don’t exercise, or muscle pain and stiffness prevent them from moving properly, they will ultimately gain weight and the diet won’t work. At MedHealth 360, we specialize in coordinated programs to integrate nutrition, hormone health, exercise, and joint mobility. We work with you to create a program that can achieve healthy results. And we are there with you every step of the way.
