Bio-Identical Hormone Pellet Therapy

In women hormonal imbalance may cause symptoms such as night sweat, 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. At his south Kansas City office Dr. Michael Barnthouse personally places the hormone pellets under the skin using a mild local anesthetic. For most women the benefits of pellet therapy will last 4 to 6 months or longer.

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 United States since the 1930s.

Michael Barnthouse, M.D. is a certified SottoPelle provider. 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 percent natural bio-identical making them the purest bio-identical pellets on the market. SottoPelle bio-identical pellets are analyzed by an independent lab for quality.
SottoPelle bio-identical hormone 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 particular 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. 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 both mentally and physically and maintaining strong relationships are all vital to your total health.
