What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
As we age, our bodies naturally start to reduce the amount of hormones like testosterone and estrogen they produce.
Hormones such as these are incredibly important to how many areas of your body function – such as your brain, heart, bones, reproductive organs, and more.
When these hormones are out of balance, people can experience a number of different symptoms.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a method of restoring the balance of your hormones and aiming to relieve these symptoms, using compounded hormones that are identical in structure to those your body naturally produces. That way, your body recognizes and uses these replacement hormones in exactly the same way it would hormones it produces naturally.
The Biote Method of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
The Biote Method of hormone optimization is the result of condensing over 80 years of scientific research into a program that may help with the earliest signs of aging.
The Biote Method uses pellets, which are about the size of a grain of rice, for hormone optimization. Your provider inserts these tiny pellets under the skin during a simple, in-office procedure.
The pellets will then dissolve slowly over time – they only need to be re-administered approximately every 3-5 months, depending on the patient.
As the pellets dissolve, they release a steady stream of hormones into your bloodstream, which your body will then use as it needs. Over time, the pellets will be completely absorbed, leaving nothing behind.
The Importance of Hormone Balance
Most women see a significant drop in estrogen and testosterone during menopause, while many men may experience a similar phenomenon relating to testosterone, known as andropause or more commonly as Low T (low testosterone).
Hormonal imbalances occur when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream.
Hormones are important for regulating most major bodily processes. Because of their essential role in the body, even the smallest hormonal imbalance can cause side effects throughout the body.
