Millions of women each year enter menopause. While some are lucky enough to experience no ill symptoms, many others unfortunately do.
However, certain medical advances can make it easier for women going through the menopausal stage, particularly to help ease any uncomfortable symptoms. One such option is Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a medically safe treatment option for relieving menopausal symptoms by addressing hormonal deficiency.
In this article, we will explain how hormone therapy works, as well as give an overview of the options available to those who would like to try it out.

What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone Replacement Therapy involves the addition of hormones to the body for any number of reasons, the most common being to address unpleasant symptoms common to menopausal women.
There are two basic types of HRT: Estrogen Only Therapy (ET) and Estrogen Plus Progesterone Therapy (EPT).
Estrogen plays an important role in the body, such as influencing how it uses calcium to maintain strong bones to prevent Osteoporosis and how it helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels. On the other hand, Progesterone’s role is to help regulate blood pressure as well as improving one’s mood and sleep.
Estrogen Only Therapy is the most common form of HRT as estrogen provides the most relief from menopausal symptoms such as:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Sleep disturbances
- Vaginal dryness
- Bone loss (Osteoporosis)
There are a variety of ways for the intake of the hormones, including oral tablets, sprays, gels, or injections. However, one of the most natural ways to replenish hormone levels can be found through Pellet Therapy.
What is Pellet Therapy?
Pellet Therapy is a form of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) that involves inserting implants made from plant sources under the skin. These pellets consistently release small doses of bioidentical hormones (which mimic the body’s natural hormones), providing a steady source to the bloodstream.
Pellet Therapy is pretty straightforward, convenient, and safe. Some of the other benefits of this form of therapy include:
- Direct absorption into the bloodstream, bypassing the liver and gastrointestinal system
- Continuous availability of hormones
- Better emotional control – less stress/depression
- Convenience and ease: no messy creams or sprays
