What is Pellet Therapy?
Pellets are very small, custom compounded therapies for symptoms that stem from hormonal imbalances. This therapy keeps hormone levels consistent throughout the day and avoids roller coaster-like effects from orally administered or topically administered hormones. The pellets contain bio-identical hormones, derived from natural sources. The pellets contain hormones identical to the ones found in the human body. Studies have shown bio-identical hormones have fewer side effects than synthetic hormones.
What type of pharmacies do we work with at Black Rock Integrative Medicine?
The hormones used in the pellets are custom compounded. Black Rock Integrative Medicine uses highly specialized pharmacies that are registered with the FDA and PCAB certified. The bio-identical hormones are compliant to the FDA sterility process.

Each patient’s symptoms are unique and each patient’s paths to optimization is unique. Most patients report some symptom resolution in as little as two to four weeks, but full optimization may take up to 6 months. Your journey will be specialized to fit your specific needs. Just as it doesn’t take you 1-2 weeks to get out of balance, it doesn’t resolve that quickly either.
