Many people take for granted that losing strength, stamina and sex drive are inevitable aspects of the aging process that must be quietly accepted. But, how many medical conditions have been written off this way before physicians learned how to treat them properly? Restorative Medical Doctors have spent years unraveling the processes that cause this decline. Extensive research has shown that many of the most restrictive signs of aging can be linked to drops in hormones. So, to combat these effects, a hormone pellet therapy to restore youthful levels of testosterone, estrogen, progesterone and DHEA has been developed.
At Longevity & Stem Cell Centre of Houston, our Restorative Medical Doctors don’t promise a miracle drug that will magically turn back the clock – we simply offer a treatment that has been clinically shown to counteract the effects of aging: hormone pellet therapy.

The hormones we use are compounded pellet, meaning they are exactly like the compounds in your body at this very moment, so they can be well absorbed and utilized.
To perform hormone pellet therapy, our Restorative Medical Doctors implant a pellet that is roughly the size of a grain of rice beneath the skin after administering an anesthetic. This process takes approximately 20 minutes and only needs to be repeated every three or four months. The skin around the pellet therapy area may be sore for a few days after insertion, but that minor discomfort hardly compares to the new lease on life this Restorative Medical Treatment can give you.

Menopause occurs when ovarian produced hormones (Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone) levels in your body naturally turn off at a certain age, usually 48-52 years old. This rapid decline is responsible for the myriad symptoms, including hot flashes and mood shifts, that are an endless source of frustration for women in middle age. While some dietary supplements may address certain deficiencies that women experience as they age – such as taking extra calcium to counteract bone loss – hormone replacement therapy is the only known treatment that actually targets the root cause of menopause-related issues.
