Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, or BIO-HRT, is a natural method used to overcome hormone deficiencies and imbalances at any age. Compared to traditional methods, bio-identical hormones have many benefits over synthetic conjugated hormones and are tolerated better, with fewer side-effects. An ideal delivery method is in the form of pellet implants. These pellets are placed just under the skin in an office setting, and usually takes less than 5-10 minutes to perform. The downtime is very minimal before patients can return to their normal activities and exercise routines.

Benefits of Bio-HRT Pellets

Bio-identical HRT is a natural, plant derived compound that can be distributed to the body in various forms. The pellet form allows for a longer duration of action, and because it is plant derived, it may have fewer negative interactions within the body. Other synthetic options, such as pills and creams, are processed by the body differently, and their absorption may create fluctuations in symptoms that patients find uncomfortable. Other side effects — like nausea and skin irritation — may occur more frequently with these methods as well.

What Are Pellets?

Pellets contain bio-identical hormones, which are custom-compounded in a pharmacy within the United States. They are quality controlled products that are batch-tested with extremely high consistency. They absorb slowly in the body with clinical effectiveness that typically lasts 3-4 months.

Symptom Improvement with Bio-HRT

There are many conditions that may be improved in women through pellet therapy. Studies have shown improvements in menopause, depression, anxiety, osteoporosis, heart disease, PMS, and many other conditions. Symptoms such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood swings, sleep disturbances, low energy levels, and low sex drive are usually significantly improved or eliminated.
