Bio-identical Hormone Replacement
Bioidentical hormone therapy (BHRT) is the process of introducing bioidentical hormones into the body to correct any hormonal imbalances that you are experiencing. Bioidentical hormones are made from plant estrogens that are chemically identical to the hormones that your body naturally produces.
BHRT is a natural alternative with minimal side-effects compared to traditional hormonal replacement therapies that inject synthetic hormones into the body. Unlike bioidentical hormones, synthetic hormones are patented and do not differ from patient to patient.

What is pellet therapy?
At Improving Your Health, Dr. Rubin specializes in bioidentical pellet therapy. During the brief and minimally invasive procedure, Dr. Rubin implants bioidentical pellets into the soft tissue under your skin, typically within the upper buttocks.
Bioidentical pellets are produced from either testosterone or estrogen and bound with natural cholesterol. They are engineered to dissolve into the body slowly over 3-4 months and mimic your body’s natural release of hormones.
Pellet therapy improves health conditions such as fatigue, menopause, and low bone density at higher rates than other BHRT approaches.
