- What is BHRT?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) uses medication containing bioidentical hormones to replace the ones your body no longer makes. It is used to treat symptoms associated with a hormonal imbalance in both men and women. These symptoms may be physical, mental, emotional or a combination of these types of symptoms.
- What are bioidentical hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are a form of hormone replacement therapy using hormones created from plant chemicals found in soybeans and yams. Your body uses these replacement hormones as it would your own to improve the symptoms caused by hormone fluctuations, such as fatigue, irritability, mood changes and weight gain, among others.
- What is BioTE® Medical?
BioTE® Medical is a brand of bioidentical hormones that delivers individualized hormone therapy to you in a pellet that is placed under your skin, optimizing hormone delivery. By comparison, bioidentical hormones taken in pill form are metabolized by your liver and get converted into a weaker hormone.
- What Is BioTE® pellet therapy?
The body knows how to best use the hormones in pellet therapy because they are identical to the molecules that the body has been producing. Using two different types of pellets, estrogen and testosterone, the BioTE method has been shown to help thousands of patients balance their hormones.
