Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy
The Condition: Hormone Imbalance
Hormone imbalances cause a wide range of issues for both women and men. Everything from libido and mood to skin tone and sleep patterns can be affected. The challenge is that hormone levels inevitably decline as we age, and while we all age, our needs can differ dramatically. Bio-identical hormone therapy replenishes the hormones that your body needs to function. Molecule by molecule, bio-identical hormones are exactly the same as those in your body.

The Solution: My Customized Bio-Identical Hormone Protocol
My extensive experience has led to me recognize that for Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy to be most effective, it must be customized for each patient based on their unique symptoms and lab values. Equally important, I offer a range of treatment options:
- Topical creams
- Sublingual (under the tongue) drops or lozenges
- Vaginal suppositories
- Oral capsules
- Pellet implants
These treatment options are designed to fit all patient preferences, and are customized for each patient’s individual needs. Although bio-identical hormone therapy is different for each patient, the ultimate goal is the same: treating hormone imbalance symptoms and increasing quality of life.
Pellet Hormone Implants for Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement in the Seattle Area
Pellet Hormone Implants have been available for over 60 years, and they're being increasingly recognized for the superior results they achieve for both men and women. These small (size of a grain of rice) implants are inserted into the fat tissue in your upper buttock area every 3-6 months. But it’s more involved than a simple injection. The key to effective treatment lies in attention to the patient's individual needs. It's all too easy for patients to receive too much or too little at any one time.
As a leader in the use of hormone implants, I know the importance of ensuring that you receive the right dosage every time, and I take steps to be sure your dosages remain consistent throughout treatment so you receive the maximum benefits of this advanced approach. Hormone implants are ideal if you want to avoid the hassle of daily application, or if you dislike swallowing pills and/or applying creams.
In addition to its practical advantages, Pellet Hormone Implants help avoid the fluctuations associated with other methods of delivery. Because the fluctuation in hormones is what usually causes undesired side effects, patients that have Pellet Hormone Implants often experience less secondary effects than those that use conventional delivery methods. Other benefits of Pellet Hormone Implants include, but are not limited to:
- Improved libido
- Maintenance of bone density
- Restored sleep patterns
- Relief of menopausal symptoms
