Q: Is Pellet Therapy an invasive procedure?
A: Many people perceive the practice to be invasive, but they do not understand the dynamics of hormone release. When the pellet is inserted, it does not simply dissolve and flood into the system: it is based on neuro-endocrine system and cardiovascular output through the capillary beds that surround the pellet. It is extremely specialized and personalized, because it is based on the person’s blood flow.
Q: Why do you specifically prefer to use pellet therapy, as a form of hormone delivery?
A: When you do hormonal optimization, it is critical that you have routine contact with the patient. Pellet therapy forces the patient to have contact with the doctor, at least every 3-4 months, which delivers better results. You are walking the patient through the process, not simply giving prescriptions.
Q: Why do people discuss the complications of pellet therapy?
A: Complications are solely based on the operator’s skill, and the type of pellet you are using. You must ensure that you select the correct pharmacy, and the right type of pellet with the precise type of content. This is extremely personalized, and contingent upon the manufacturing of the pellet—how it is made, and what it is made of.
Q: Are the pellets often rejected by the body when inserted?
A: No. If you use the right kind of pellet, it is a myth that the pellets are rejected. It takes training and an understanding of the therapy, but pellet therapy has been used since 1938 with success.
