Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) has been a common practice to deal with aging for decades. Bio-identical hormones are derived from plant sources that have the same molecular structure as hormones created naturally in the body. At Meliora Integrative Medicine, we do not use synthetic hormones (from animal or synthetic sources) because of significant health concerns.
The most common time men seek out testosterone replacement therapy is when they're experiencing symptoms of low testosterone (Low T) including lower libido, weight gain, loss of muscle strength and lack of vitality. Andropause occurs when a man's testosterone level decreases irreversibly.

What is pellet therapy for men?
Pellet therapy is one method of hormone replacement for men. Meliora Integrative Medicine is a Certified BioTE® Medical Provider. We use bioidentical, all natural testosterone delivered by small pellets inserted under the skin. The pellets deliver a more consistent level of hormone with fewer side effects than other forms of testosterone replacement (TRT).
To determine if TRT is right for you:
We discuss your symptoms and issues
We perform a comprehensive laboratory test looking at a full panel of your hormone levels
Based on your symptoms and levels, we create a customized plan, utilizing natural hormone treatments.
Let's check your levels, your body may be suffering from low testosterone.
Natural and safe means of testosterone replacement are recommended, synthetic testosterone is avoided.
Aging is a natural process, leading to symptoms of testosterone deficiency. You don't have to suffer, you have options.
An imbalance in one or more of these areas - hormones, nutrients, toxin clearance, mind and body - can play a role in your symptoms or conditions. In turn, these imbalances can affect multiple body systems including the nervous system, digestion, immune and metabolic systems. Most importantly, it helps us discover the root causes of your symptoms or conditions.
Restoration of optimal functioning in these areas can play an important role in your overall health, healing and wellness. It can also help you with long-term prevention strategies from chronic disease.
