Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a way to bioidentically replace the hormones men and women lose over the course of their lives. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a treatment for many common and debilitating symptoms that are often overlooked by medical providers. Some of these symptoms include exhaustion, stress, foggy thinking, weight gain, sleep disturbances, and so much more. Often, people with symptoms like these are suffering from hormonal imbalance. These ailments are treated by getting to the root cause of these complex conditions and returning the patient to a state of hormone balance. BHRT is a simple method for correcting these complex issues through effective hormone balance therapy.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can come in oral, topical and pellet forms. BHRT using pellets has many advantages over other hormone modalities – most notably, the consistent administration offered by the BioTE method approach to hormone replacement therapy. This prevents the rollercoaster like effects patients often experience with other forms of BHRT.
How Long Does a Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Pellet Take to Work?
Each hormone replacement therapy patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Most hormone therapy patients report some symptom resolution in as little as four weeks, but full optimization may take up to six months. Your bioidentical hormone therapy journey will be customized to fit your specific needs. It takes more than a few weeks for your hormones to get out of balance, so you can appreciate the fact that it may take a little time to get your hormones back to an optimal level.
BioTE® vs Synthetic Hormone Pellet Therapy
When it comes to the BioTE® Medical’s method of pellet therapy vs. synthetic hormones, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is the practical choice. Synthetic hormones are not identically matched to those made by the body, making them less effective and more likely to create adverse side effects than the bioidentical hormone pellets used by BioTE Medical. Our approach to hormone therapy has fewer and less severe side effects than synthetic hormone therapy.
