I am a nurse practitioner with an incredible passion for overall wellness and love to support patients in their journey for a healthier lifestyle! I believe every patient deserves to feel confident, strong, and healthy and this is what balancing hormones with the pellets from New Leaf Specialty Pharmacy and getting hormones to optimal levels can do!! I myself am living proof but when I got this testimonial from a male patient I was so excited as I work very hard for feedback like this. “I feel so much more energy since getting the pellets! I walk almost daily and I am even doing a little running. I physically feel the best I have felt in about 10 years. My cognitive thinking is better and my jeans are fitting a little looser. The food sensitivity testing has been very helpful too. I have made small changes to my diet and that has made a big difference. Also, I appreciate how you explain my lab results in such great detail…and in a way that I understand. Thank you so much for all you do at New Leaf!”

It is always enjoyable as a provider when I speak to patient’s a month after their first implant, and they tell me how much better they feel already. As a provider, my goal is to improve patient’s wellness and health outcomes, so it means a great deal to me knowing our NHT-pellet therapy IS making a difference for my patients.

I have been very pleased by the significant improvements New Leaf Specialty Pharmacy pellets have provided for our hormone therapy patients. Through routine lab work, it is clear how efficient the pellets are, which makes finding and sustaining an optimal dose much more achievable. Most of all, our patients tolerate them well, and love the way New Leaf Specialty Pharmacy pellets make them feel. Seeing patients travel from out of state just to continue their hormone therapy with us really validates the difference NLRx pellets can make!

As a provider, and comparing patients on New Leaf Specialty Pharmacy pellet therapy with patients on oral hormone medications, the pellet patients are more stable in symptom relief and overall satisfied with therapy. Patients on oral hormone therapy have issues daily with inconvenience of dosing twice a day, rollercoaster effect of symptoms and symptom relief, and the risk of transference is high with oral and creams which can be dangerous for the rest of the family. Pellets from New Leaf Specialty Pharmacy are pure and dissolve well over time making them more reliable with symptoms relief and helping the patient sustain a natural optimized hormone level throughout the 12 weeks.

I am 59 years old and have been using hormone pellet therapy for over a decade. It has been a true life saver for me in more ways than anyone could imagine.
About 9 months ago I started using pellets from New Leaf Specialty Pharmacy and my world got even better. I truly had no idea that there could be such a noticeable difference in the pellets themselves.
I have always been a fan of this therapy, and moving forward I will only use New Leaf’s pellets. I only wish that I had the words to explain how amazing I feel.
Thank you New Leaf!!

I have been working with NHT pellet patients for almost 6 years. After going through many different pellet manufacturing pharmacies, I can tell you quality is the key. When you are placing pellets that will slowly dissolve in a patient’s body over a 12 week plus period of time, everything matters! The quality of ingredients and binding agent ratios make a huge impact on patient outcomes. Since I have been using pellets from New Leaf Specialty pharmacy, I have witnessed the exceptional quality of their compounded NHT pellets. My patients are very satisfied with minimal to no side effects, and lab results are consistent. I have had no reported insertion site reactions, minimal pellet retention, and almost no pellet expulsions. Those who have worked with enough NHT pellet patients know that these things sometimes happen, regardless of our best practices. I highly recommend the products from New Leaf Specialty Pharmacy.

I have the pleasure and privilege of serving as the Nurse Practitioner for New Leaf Wellness in Coralville. I also teach Research and Pharmacology full-time to masters and doctoral students, and began investigating hormone replacement therapy a number of years ago because of my interest in the effects of estrogen depletion in dementias, and finally, the negative consequences of peri-menopause and menopause I had been experiencing, with no satisfactory options offered by conventional providers. Serendipitously, as I was investigating New Leaf Wellness as a potential client, I found a new professional role as a provider there!
It would take pages and hours to discuss the benefits of NHT, so I will try to focus on my personal benefits. I, like many of our clients, experienced the gradual, insidious effects of hormone decline, beginning in my 40’s with a disruption in healthy sleep patterns, a decline in mood and general sense of well-being, reduced bone mineral density, worsening mental focus and memory, near lack of benefit from exercise, poor balance, rising HDL, changes in skin and hair, increased cellulite and lack of interest in intimacy. As with many, I was told this is ‘normal for a woman my age’, and offered medications for the symptoms, but nothing for the cause. As with many, I wish I would have found New Leaf Wellness and the pellet therapy from New Leaf Specialty Pharmacy10 years sooner.
After targeted and comprehensive labs identified my specific deficiencies, I began a customized Natural Hormone Therapy prescription using the pellets from New Leaf Specialty Pharmacy. Within 2 weeks, my sleep was profoundly improved. I was dreaming for the first time in years, slept through the night without interruption and woke feeling rested and mentally sharp. Within 4 weeks, I noticed improvements in my balance, energy and mental clarity. I remember thinking, “I am beginning to feel like me again!”. By the time I had my second implant, I was starting to see changes in my skin and all tissues, a decrease in cellulite, muscle tone and a renewed interest in intimacy. Overtime, my bone density has returned to normal, by LDL went from the 130’s to 70’s (there is not a lot of evidence for this, but is my experience none-the-less), and sleep, mood and energy remain where it had been 20 years ago, if not better!
It has been exciting and fun over the months and years to work with people and see them get these same benefits. Many of my family, friends and colleagues have joined me on this path to wellness. I have so enjoyed continuing my education in this field as well, and look forward to passing the latest discoveries and advancements in this field onto our valued clients. Please do not hesitate to contact me at New Leaf Wellness in Coralville if you have questions! I look forward to meeting many more of you!
