Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Testosterone Replacement Treatment for Men

If you’re feeling manly, you have testosterone to thank. A hormone produced predominately in the testicles, testosterone is responsible for classic masculine traits like building muscle mass, maintaining strength, building bone density, regulating fat distribution and enhancing the all-important sex drive. Without enough testosterone, you’ll feel weak, irritable and less than yourself. Unfortunately, this crucial hormone often decreases in concentration as men age, which dramatically affects their health, energy and sexual functioning in the process.
However, you don’t have to accept that losing your vitality from plummeting testosterone levels is an inevitable part of aging. Take part in hormone pellet therapy, and your testosterone levels will quickly get back on track, allowing you to feel like your younger self again in no time.*

Symptoms of Low Testosterone

Testosterone levels typically peak in early adulthood and decline by one percent a year after age 30. Any decreases that are more severe are likely caused by Hypogonadism, a condition that affects the testicles and prevents them from producing enough testosterone.
The symptoms of low testosterone are:
  • Low energy levels
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Losses in muscle mass
  • Depression
  • Lowered sex drive
  • General irritability

Hormone Pellet Therapy:

The Testosterone Remedy You’ve Been Seeking

Get your testosterone levels back on track with hormone pellet therapy, a treatment that uses hormones pulled from natural plant sources to return your testosterone levels to normal. Though they can be as small as a grain of rice, hormone pellets release an all-natural form of testosterone into your bloodstream, which your body absorbs as needed. This makes it effective in treating the symptoms of low testosterone.

Avoid unwanted side-effects

The number one benefit of pellet therapy is that it is a much more stable way to receive testosterone throughout the day than other methods of testosterone absorption. The time-release technology of the pellets delivers a consistent amount of testosterone to the bloodstream throughout the day, without any thought or planning on your part. Patients that are undergoing testosterone therapy but are using injections, creams, or pills, often experience a rollercoaster of side-effects due to the variables affecting the consistency of the testosterone amount administered via these methods. Pellet therapy can eliminate this issue.*

Undergoing hormone pellet therapy is a simple process. For it to work, hormone pellets are carefully inserted in the fatty tissues underneath your skin so that they can regulate testosterone just like the testicles do. After the procedure, the pellets will provide your body with sustained hormone levels for up to 6 months, and the process is so painless it can take place right in the office.*
