Testosterone Pellets

Hormone pellet therapy has been around since the 1930s. In 2008, the FDA approved a bioidentical testosterone pellet therapy designed exclusively for men. Because of the effectiveness of this method for administering testosterone, it has become increasingly popular for both men and women.  NatureMed has been offering testosterone replacement with pellets since 2010.

Folic Acid Metabolism and Osteoporosis

Bisphosphonates are used in the treatment of low calcium states, such as Osteopenia/osteoporosis. Bisphosponates such as Fosamax, Boniva, Actonel are examples of this class of drugs. Years ago studies began to show that these drugs actually caused bisphosphonate osteonecrosis of the jaw. Osteonecrosis is a fancy word for cellular death of bone tissue. Studies have shown that this happens because these medications so commonly prescribed for women with low bone density, actually affect methylation in our DNA.
