Larger than a grain of rice and smaller than a Tic Tac, BHRT pellets are composed of either estradiol (an estrogen hormone) or testosterone. The pellets used for the EvexiPEL® hormone pellet therapy are manufactured by FarmaKeio, a leading compounding pharmacy in the United States, where the hormones are pressed or fused into small, solid cylinders.
During BHRT with pellets, the practitioner makes a tiny incision – usually in the buttocks or flank – then inserts the pellets into the fatty tissue under the skin. The practitioner then closes the incision, without the need for stitches. To prevent patient discomfort, a local anesthetic is applied to the insertion site prior to the procedure.
In response to physical activity or emotional stress (whether it’s good stress or bad), the pellets release estradiol and/or testosterone into the body. Thanks to the pellets, which are securely tucked away beneath the skin, the patient receives a steady stream of hormones, which keeps annoying mood and energy fluctuations at bay.
Yes! And the EvexiPEL® formulation has been shown to produce better outcomes for patients, too. After a decade treating thousands of patients, EvexiPEL® founder Terri DeNeui, MSN, APRN-BC worked diligently with a team of experts to develop a proprietary pellet formula.
Put into practice at one of the largest known hormone pellet therapy providers in the country –EVEXIAS® Medical Centers – the formulation yielded the following results:
Increased practitioner and patient satisfaction. Period.
Unlike other BHRT providers, EvexiPEL® practitioners take a functional approach to treating patients with hormone imbalance. After years of treating thousands of patients and digging deep to find the root cause of patient health concerns and intensive research, DeNeui, found that some patients don’t respond to BHRT with subcutaneous pellets alone.
Over the years, DeNeui and her team of practitioners have discovered that hormone imbalance is but one factor that may contribute to patients’ health struggles. The mind, body and spirit all need to be addressed in order for the patient to heal fully. Key insights include:
“Today we take a much more integrated approach to treating patients than in the past. Experts in hormone optimization, functional medicine, nutrition and mental health work as a team so patients experience optimum results.”
BHRT with pellets has been shown to be a superior method to optimize hormones and address health conditions and symptoms associated with unbalanced hormones in women and men.
Hormone imbalance may occur as early as our 20s. Symptoms vary but may include fatigue, depression, insomnia, weight gain, muscle aches and weakness, sexual dysfunction and more.
With bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, synthetic hormones are replaced with natural, plant-based testosterone and estrogen pellets, providing superior results for the patient.
Tiny hormone pellets are inserted into the fatty tissue under the skin. Hormones are released in response to physical activity or emotional stress, keeping mood and energy fluctuations at bay.
