HT Controls many functions of your body, glands, and releases hormones that work as chemical message carriers.  Multiple conditions can be treated with hormones, and many safe and effective hormone treatments involve the use of bioidentical hormones, which are identical to those that your body creates


What is bioidentical hormone therapy?


Bioidentical hormone therapy is the use of synthetic hormones designed to match human hormones. At the Allende Center, a hormone therapy program is created to match your body needs with customization in selections and dosage. 


Creams and injections for some of these hormones and some oral options are available however, quite flexible and easy to do is pellet therapy as described below.  

Bioidentical hormone therapy includes:

  • Estriol

  • Estrone

  • Estradiol

  • Testosterone

  • Progesterone

  • Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)


Bioidentical hormone therapy is administered through pellets that are placed just under the skin in your hip area. This placement allows for a slow direct release of the medicine into your bloodstream 24 hours a day.


History of Bio-Identical Hormone Pellet Therapy


Estradiol and Testosterone pellets have been present in the United States since 1939.  Even though their presence in the medical industry has been lengthy, many physicians have not been aware of them.  Extensive research has been done in England and Europe where pellet therapy is used quite extensively.  Research shows the long term benefits produce outstanding results. 


The major reason why hormone pellets have not been adopted by mainstream medicine is due to the complexity of the production of the pellets.  Certified pharmacies must make the pellets which removes the Drug Companies grasp of this medication.  Since Drug Companies are not involved in the production of hormone pellets, there is no advertising nor encouragement to use this highly effective bioidentical hormone therapy.  Hormone Pellets are a FDA-Approved pharmaceutical product.   


It is for these reasons why you don’t hear much about Pellet Therapy through different media sources even though the therapy is highly effective. 


How does bioidentical hormone therapy help women?


Bioidentical hormone therapy has many benefits.  Such benefits include low sex drive, low energy, severe PMS, and symptomatic perimenopause and menopause. 


During perimenopause, the amount of estrogen and progesterone in your body will an go up and down, with numerous fluctuations.   Menopause means your hormone levels are close to zero with periods ceasing all together. 


Symptoms of perimenopause and menopause include:

  • Hot flashes, sweating (night sweats)

  • Vaginal dryness and painful sex

  • Sleep problems

  • Decreased libido
