What are bio-identical hormones?
Bio-identical hormones are plant-based compounds specifically formulated to match the molecular structure of human hormones. Synthetics, however, are engineered not to match in order to be patented.
Balanced Body MD uses a pellet based method. The pellets are compounded according to the highest industry standards, using the best quality botanical ingredients available. They are specifically formulated to replicate human hormones. When the body is in need of estrogen or testosterone, these tiny implants placed under the skin consistently release small physiologic doses of hormones providing optimal therapy.
Why are pellets the best?
The pellets used for hormone therapy are small – only a bit larger than a grain of rice – and are made to be inserted quickly and painlessly under the skin. Once in place it delivers a steady, natural dose of hormones directly to wherever the hormones are needed. They are crafted according to the highest industry pharmaceutical standards and are chemically identical to the human hormones they are replacing. They work for 3-6 months and you won’t have to remember to take a pill or apply a cream.
Many patients who have been on creams, pills and patches discover that their hormone treatment can create side effects over time. Non-pellet methods provide an irregular dosing amount, which produces a roller coaster-like effect in the body.
Over time, extra hormones that are stored in the body can spill back into your system and cause a progressive overdosing. This can cause a cascade of imbalances that you were trying to treat in the first place!
Pellets deliver a steady and measured dose of the hormones your body needs, only as it needs them.

Symptoms of Menopause & related hormonal issues
Menopause is the end of the female reproductive cycle and is commonly diagnosed when a woman has not had her period for 12 months. The average age for the onset of Menopause is 51 but can also happen in as early as your late 30’s. The precise method of determining if a woman is in Menopause is to measure the amount of follicle stimulating hormone levels in the blood.
Leading up to Menopause, the ovaries produce fewer hormones, which cause a variety of changes in a woman’s body. Surgical removal of the ovaries and other medical conditions and treatments can also induce Menopause.
The fluctuations in the hormones estrogen, testosterone and progesterone can cause your periods to become irregular and sometimes heavy. Other symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, brain fog and headaches can soon follow.
