What are Bio-Identical Hormone Pellets?
We have consolidated some useful information in an effort to help you better understand Bio-identical Hormone Therapy (BHT). While bio-identical hormones have been approved and available for use in the US since the 1930s, the use of bio-identical hormones have been slow to increase despite general agreement in the scientific literature that bio-identical hormone replacement is far better than using non-human hormones. The technology now exists that allows us to place time-release pellets of approved human hormones in the fat under our skin to deliver more youthful hormone levels directly into the bloodstream. While we are quick to admit that this therapy is not a “fountain of youth”, we are very confident that it can dramatically improve many people’s quality of life and health in measurable ways based upon hundreds of recent scientific studies.
It is vitally important that you continue to see your regular medical doctor for your usual health care, tests, and routine health maintenance. We are not replacing your medical doctor. If you don’t have a medical doctor, we will be happy to see you.

Bio-identical hormones have the exact same chemical and molecular structure as hormones that are made in the human body. The difference between a “bio-identical” hormone versus a hormone that is not “bio-identical” is the molecular structure and shape of the hormone.
Why is this important?
Think of a hormone as a “key” and the receptor which it activates as a lock. In order for a replacement hormone to exactly replicate the function of the hormone that humans naturally produce, the bio-identical replacement I provide must exactly match the human hormone.
It is the structural differences that exist between human “bio-identical” and “non-bio-identical” hormones that are responsible for serious side effects and sometimes fatal health risks that occur when non “bio-identical” hormones are used in humans.
About Galen Hormone Therapy
Hormones control virtually all of the functions of the body. This includes your immune, reproductive, and metabolic systems as well as your mental and physical health. As we get older, our body’s production of hormones such as testosterone and estrogen begins to wane. After 25 years of age, our bodies produce 2% less of the hormones we need each year. By 35 years of age, our bodies are producing only 80% of the hormones needed for optimum mental and physical health. This impacts energy levels, mental acuity, the capacity for intimacy, and overall health and well-being.
