Hormone Replacement and BioTE® Pellet Therapy

Hormone Replacement and BioTE® Pellet Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy is used to help balance estrogen and progesterone in women around the time of menopause.

Our hormones are considered to be the body’s chemical messengers, carrying messages and signals between cells and organs. When in proper balance, they actually play a bigger role in how our body functions than we might expect—including our mood, heart rate, appetite, metabolism, sleep quality, stress management, energy, growth, and sexual development, and reproduction. When one’s hormone levels are too high or too low, serious health issues can occur.

Menopause, along with imbalanced estrogen and progesterone levels, causes a number of difficult symptoms:

  • Hot flashes
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Decreased libido
  • Weight gain
  • Muscle loss
  • Memory loss
  • Mood swings
  • Poor memory
  • Loss of bone density
  • Low stamina
  • Low immunity
  • Lack of skin elasticity
  • Joint pain
  • Vaginal dryness

Bio-identical hormone pellet therapy for women (BHRT) uses estrogen, progesterone and testosterone that are derived from natural plant sources. The goal of BHRT is to correct low hormone levels and restore the critical hormone balance in your system. By doing this, BHRT can help eliminate or mitigate symptoms associated with aging, menopause, estrogen dominance, and other hormonal imbalances.

For BHRT, there is no better delivery method than BioTE® Pellet Therapy.

BioTE® pellets are meticulously designed to keep hormone levels consistent throughout the day and to avoid the roller coaster-like effects that other hormone types usually bring. Because they are plant-based, they mimic the hormones naturally present within the body, which means fewer side effects and more success in achieving hormonal balance. The pellets are administered in our office (which only takes a few minutes), dissolved, absorbed by the body, and begins to work in seven to ten days.

BioTE® pellet therapy is:

  • Easy: Unlike with pills, tablets or patches, pellet therapy leaves no room for user error. Everything is handled with a simple injection, in essence you can get pelleted and forget any additional worry.
  • Natural: The hormones used in pellet therapy are derived from natural plant sources and are chemically-identical to the hormones your body produces naturally.
  • Effective: Pelleting provides results for helping both women with age-related issues.
  • Lasting: A single pellet injection lasts for months, compared to the short duration of other delivery methods. With BioTE pellet therapy, natural hormones are present 24 hours a day, providing constant balance and benefits.
  • Consistent: The BioTE pellet therapy process gives you consistent hormone levels throughout the day that raise and lower themselves naturally.
