What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

As a part of the natural aging process, our bodies naturally start to produce a lower amount of hormones. Estrogen and testosterone help the body regulate brain, heart, bone, reproductive organs function and more. When the hormones are out of balance, a range of issues can arise. 

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (or BHRT) uses compounded hormones identical in structure to the hormones your body naturally produces to return hormonal balance. Your body uses these replacement hormones in the exact way it would natural hormones, resulting in a significant improvement in your overall well being. 

How does the BioTE Method Work?

The Biote Method uses hormone therapy pellets, about the size of a grain of rice. Your doctor will insert these tiny pellets under your skin as a part of a simple, in-office procedure.

Over time, the pellets will slowly dissolve. After 3-5 months, new pellets will be re-inserted. As the pellets dissolve into your bloodstream, they release a steady stream of hormones, which are completely absorbed and used by your body.
