Hormone balance is a crucial part of what keeps our bodies healthy and
fit as we age, and when hormone imbalance occurs, treatments are necessary.
Bio-identical hormone pellet therapy has become the preferred method to
treat hormone deficiencies at Dallas Anti-Aging & Wellness. This treatment
method avoids the many disadvantages of treatment alternatives like messy
daily creams or painful weekly injections by needle.

pellets are natural and plant-based, made from wild yam. The chemical

How Do I Know If I Need HRT?
The simplest, easiest way to check your hormone levels is through a blood
test. We can draw your blood right in our office to get you started. Our
doctors then review the results and write a treatment plan customized
to your needs if hormone replacement is needed.
Biodentical hormone pellets are available in:
Other hormones we can supplement (not in pellet form) include:
Cortisol* Sometimes referred to as the stress hormone because it influences and regulates
how the body responds to stress, low cortisol is also a common issue with
those suffering from digestion problems, fatigue, chronic inflammation,
low blood sugar and low blood pressure.
DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) This hormone is produced by your body's adrenal glands. It has a role in
helping the body to naturally produce testosterone and estrogen. DHEA
helps build muscle, fights the effects of aging and can be used to improve
Estrogen Estrogen therapy is an effective treatment for relief of hot flashes and
night sweats in women. It can also be used to treat the vaginal symptoms
of menopause, including dryness, burning, itching, and discomfort during
intercourse. This is a common treatment for women dealing with various
menopause symptoms. Estrogen supplement therapy can also decrease a woman’s
risk of osteoporosis.
GHRP* Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide stimulates the pituitary gland to make
and release more Human Growth Hormone, contributing to greater energy,
fat loss, lower blood pressure, higher testosterone levels, hair regrowth,
and enhanced sexual performance.
HGH Booster HGH Booster stimulates the secretion of growth hormones to build muscle
while reducing fat. Patients report increased energy levels, muscle growth,
decreased body fat and deeper more restful
Melatonin This promotes restful sleep and is a powerful antioxidant. Natural levels
of melatonin in the body decline with age. Treatment promotes anti-aging
in general, aids antioxidant protection, and sleep. Recent studies also
indicate that melatonin may lessen the effects of Alzheimer’s and
Micronized Progesterone Often used in conjunction with estrogen in the treatment of post-menopausal
women, benefits include bone building and fat burning, protection against
osteoporosis, improved PMS symptoms, protection against endometrial and
breast cancers, and maintained levels of natural sexual desire.
Oxytocin Also known as the “love hormone,” oxytocin is reported to enhance
libido, arousal, and sexual climax in both men and women. Patients report
improved love life.
Pregnenolone This hormone is used to treat the symptoms of menopause and PMS. It can
also be can be used to slow or reduce the effects of aging and in the
treatment of arthritis and depression.
Testosterone Testosterone levels in men declines about 1% a year after the age of 30.
Treatment increases energy, builds muscle mass, promotes bone density,
and increases sex drive. Women need small amounts as part of the hormones
that keep mood, energy levels, sex drive, and bodily functions working well.
Thyroid Hormone Thyroid levels often decline naturally with age and can often go undiagnosed.
Even a small decline in this important hormone over an extended period
of time can lead to profound consequences for health and longevity. Low
thyroid levels occur more often in women over 40. Treatment helps regulate
mood and weight.
* Bio-identical forms of Cortisol and GHRP are not presently available.

Doctor Supervised Treatment
Natural hormone pellet therapy is a painless, minor surgical procedure
that involves inserting small hormone pellets, about the size of a grain
of rice, beneath the skin. Our doctors and nurse practitioner administer
pellet insertion in a simple in-office procedure done under local anesthesia.
The pellets are inserted just under the skin in the upper buttocks through
a very small opening. The incision is then closed with surgical glue or
sterile-tape strips and a waterproof bandage. Once implanted, treatment
takes effect within 48 to 72 hours. The pellets release hormones steadily
as needed over time until dissolving completely, which usually occurs
about 4 months later. This means treatment is only needed 3-4 times per
year, in great contrast to the daily or weekly treatments needed with
other therapy options.
Why Choose Dallas Anti-Aging & Wellness for Your Pellets?
We have the highest standard of care and service
We use only highest quality bio-identical (not synthetic) pellets made
from wild Yams. These are molecule by molecule identical to what the hormones
you have naturally. The pharmacy we use for pellets is an FDA regulated
manufacturing facility, rather than just a state monitored compounding pharmacy.
Our prices are ‘flat fee’ which includes as many pellets as
you need. We base the number of pellets to your body mass index or BMI.
The larger a person you are, the more hormones your body will require.
Some men have received up to 15 pellets.
We have unlimited doctor visits at no extra charge included during your
pellet therapy period.
Your initial visit with our doctor usually lasts up to one-hour and includes
a physical exam, wellness and nutritional advice and can cover additional
issues such as fatigue, sexual wellness, thyroid issues, and other health
concerns. This is not just a quick pellet insertion appointment.
Our wellness lab work consists of large number of tests (over 60) and is
considered a wellness screening panel. Wellness panels test for most all
body functions, including Hematology, Cardiology, Hepatic (liver) function,
Lipids (cholesterol) Hormones, (PSA -men), Diabetes, Special Chemistry,
Metabolic function, Electrolytes, Iron studies, Growth Hormone levels,
Cortisol, Vitamin B-12, Folate and ultrasensitive Thyroid panels.
We take most all insurance (in-network) for our initial lab panel, saving
you $200 off the total cost of our services.
Men receive at no additional charge, anti-estrogen pellets as well. Most
men have estrogen levels rise when on testosterone replacement.
Men receive a booster testosterone injection the day of their pellet insertion
to “jump start” their levels rising as it takes a few days
for the pellets to start releasing medication.
Our doctor’s goal is to get your hormones in the upper 10% of normal
range for testosterone as he has found that most people feel better with
high normal ranges.
Our doctor listens to your symptoms and bases that on his treatment plan
along with your lab results, and screening questionnaires.
We don’t just treat you based on lab numbers.
After the initial lab work, we run labs again at 45 days to verify the
hormones have increased. We also run labs after the second to determine
if it’s time to have the next round of pellets.
It is possible to get your hormone therapy started within 7 days of your
consult. At your consult, you can begin the lab work and when the results
are ready in 3 or 4 days and then the next available appointment you could
have the service. It used to take weeks. We know when your hormones are
off-balance, you need to get started as soon as possible.
