A Better You is Closer Than Ever

Post Insertion Instructions
  • Do not soak in a bathtub, hot tub, or swim in a swimming pool for five days after insertion if you are male, and three days after insertion if you are female. These protocols will help prevent infection.
  • Avoid intense workouts for five days if you are male, and three days if you are female.
  • Avoid activities that may irritate the insertion site and cause extrusion, such as “but not limited” to horseback riding and mountain biking.
  • You have two bandages over the insertion site: the steri-strip which helps keep the wound sealed, and a gauze-like pressure bandage. The pressure bandage may be removed 24 hours after insertion.

Contact your provider immediately if you develop redness, tenderness, warmth, swelling, or oozing at the insertion site.

Your Treatment Plan

How can you prepare to maximize your results?  Hormone therapy outcomes are maximized when you are supported by balanced nutrition. Your provider may recommend a selection of dietary supplements designed to deliver key nutrients that can enhance your results.

  • ADK 10 works to improve cellular absorption of the hormones
  • Active ND 50 Probiotic supports a healthy gut to ensure effective hormone metabolism
  • HRT Complete (T & E) delivers key nutrients that sustain proper hormone metabolism and balance

Depending on your specific needs, your provider may recommend a few additional supplements to help you optimally achieve hormone balance.

Noticing a Difference?

It’s been three weeks since your pellet insertion. You should be beginning to experience a reduction in some of your symptoms, or you may already be experiencing the vast benefits of hormone therapy. Now is the time–if you haven’t already–to complement your pellet therapy with the recommended nutraceuticals. These supplements will help maximize your results and continually support the best outcomes.

Your follow-up lab appointment is approaching soon. This is a very exciting appointment–you won’t want to miss learning how your body is adapting to the therapy and seeing quantifiable results.

Remember to stay in contact with your provider and medical team. Your follow-up appointments are important for ensuring you are reaching optimized hormone levels for your body and feeling better.  If you do not have an appointment scheduled with your provider to review your follow-up labs, please contact our office to get scheduled.

Keep that Good Feeling Going

By now, it’s likely that you have enjoyed the benefits of pellet therapy–fewer symptoms, more energy, and better sleep. However, at this point, it’s not uncommon to notice a symptom or two flaring up again. That’s because it is time for your next insertion. Make sure your appointment for your next insertion is already scheduled to avoid returning to baseline levels.
