Now that we’ve introduced you to hormone replacement therapy and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, we want to give you a deeper look at the EvexiPEL method.

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT for short, moves away from mass-produced, synthetic hormones in favor of bio-identical hormones derived from natural, plant-based substances.

The reason this is so important is that the synthetic hormones used in traditional HRT methods can be formulated artificially in the lab or even composed from horse urine. Use of synthetic hormones are known for side effects such as fluid retention, bloating, headaches and indigestion, but they can lead to more serious side effects like cancer and heart disease.

By using hormones derived from plants, BHRT eliminates the risk of serious side effects and actually protects against many things like cancer, dementia, and Alzheimers. The molecular structure of bio-identical hormones is human identical, meaning hormones metabolize in the body in the manner that nature intended.

EvexiPEL and Advanced Image Med Spa & Elite Wellness Center recognize that hormone replacement therapy is not a one-size-fits-all solution to the prevention and treatment of hormone imbalance. That’s why Dr. Iannitelli works with each patient to find the root cause behind ongoing health issues. By listening to patient concerns and asking questions, she can uncover the root cause and create a customized treatment plan.

Dr. Iannitelli has received more than 50 hours of educational and practical training with EvexiPEL, and continues to study the latest trends and technology in BHRT to bring her patients the best results possible.

In her own words, Dr. Iannitelli shares why she picked EvexiPEL:

“After researching numerous hormone companies, I chose EvexiPEL for several important reasons.  They have owned and operated one of the largest hormone replacement clinics in the nation for over 10 years.  They also have a whole body approach and incorporate symptomatology and lab values in order to get the best dosing.  They have an awesome treatment algorithm so that you get the same great benefits from the first insertion to the tenth and beyond.  In line with this, they also coat their pellets in a small amount of steroids to prevent inflammation from insertion. They coat the pellets so that after multiple insertions the amount of scar tissue formed is much less than competitors and absorption of the pellets stays consistent.  Most importantly this company backs all of their protocols heavily with evidence-based medicine.”

EvexiPEL has fine-tuned the approach to hormone therapy. Gone are the days of messy creams and inconvenient pills, now BHRT can be administered by a pellet placed under the skin. This allows the body to absorb the hormones through the bloodstream in in steady doses at the appropriate speed. BHRT pellet insertions are quick and the process only needs to occur 2-3 times per year.
