What is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?

 
 

What

Bio-identical Hormone Pellet Therapy:

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) begins to work within seven to ten days of your pellet insertion. Once a pellet is inserted under the skin of the gluteal area (Buttock/ Hip area) , a consistent dose of bio-identical (naturally derived) hormones enter the bloodstream. Every BHRT pellet is custom-compounded to the patient's unique physiology. Tailoring every treatment to the patient helps ensure the greatest possible success in achieving hormonal balance. Furthermore, the pellets are derived from plants, not animals, which closely mimic the hormones naturally present within your body. Studies have shown that bio-identical hormone pellet therapy may offer you the most benefits.

 

 

Why

Goal of Hormone Optimization Therapy:

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a treatment for many common and debilitating symptoms that are often overlooked by doctors. Some of these symptoms include exhaustion, stress, foggy thinking, weight loss, sleep disturbances, and so much more. These ailments are treated by getting to the root cause of these complex conditions. Often, people with symptoms like these are suffering from hormonal imbalance. BHRT is a natural and simple method for correcting these complex issues. Hormone pellets release bio-identical hormones into the bloodstream continuously. These are tiny pellets just under the skin, typically placed in the upper hip. BHRT pellets are smaller than a grain of rice and are consistently effective for between 3 and 6 months.


 

 

FAQs

What can I expect from BHRT pellet therapy?

As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Most patients report some symptom resolution in as little as two to four weeks, but full optimization may take up to six months. Your journey will be customized to fit your specific needs. It takes more than one to two weeks for your hormones to get out of balance, so expect it to take time to resolve.
