What is Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) ?
BHRT stands for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. What does that mean? Bio-identical refers to how molecularly similar the supplemental hormone is to the hormones that our bodies naturally produce. Other supplemental hormones, such as the ones commonly prescribed by physicians are not bio-identical. Bio-identical hormones are derived from plants while synthetic hormones are derived from animals. The purpose of administering hormone replacement therapy is to replace hormones that decline naturally as a person ages. People who lack certain hormones or who have too much of a certain hormone may benefit from BHRT.
What are Bio Identical hormone pellets?
Bio Identical hormone pellets are subcutaneous implants that are inserted under the skin in the hip area. The pellets are derived from plants and consist of pure testosterone and/or estradiol combined with only one other ingredient – a binding agent that holds them together until your body begins to absorb them. We use only the purest bio identical hormone pellets, which are custom-compounded and held to the strictest third-party testing for potency, endotoxins, and sterility. Every batch of hormone pellets is tested for consistency and purity, which makes us confident that you are being provided with the best possible therapy in order to heal.
Are Bio Identical Hormone Pellets Safe?
Bio Identical Hormone Pellets are identical to hormones that are naturally produced by the body, which leads to better tolerability and fewer side effects than synthetic hormones. The pellets dissolve completely and leave nothing behind. Since the pellets are absorbed through the skin and by-pass the gut, they are the safest, most natural form of hormone replacement therapy.
What is the BHRT pellet insertion process like?
The BHRT pellet insertion process is straightforward and simple. First, schedule an office visit at Optimal Hormone Health and Wellness to test your current hormone levels. Based on your comprehensive consultation and thorough blood work analysis, we will determine if you are a candidate for pellet therapy and an appointment will be scheduled for your unique pellet therapy insertion.
What are the drawbacks of pellet therapy?
Pellet therapy may not be covered by your insurance provider and must be paid for out-of-pocket. However, when compared to the cost of treatment for the myriad of conditions it lessens and prevents, pellet therapy is very cost effective! It is a natural and well-tolerated therapy that gets to the root cause of symptoms instead of putting a “bandaid” over them!
