Bio-identical hormones are non-synthetic, plant-based hormones that are identical biologically to human hormone. The best analogy to differentiate bio identical from synthetic hormones is to look at the hormones and the receptors they activate (hundreds of thousands in our bodies) as a lock and key. The hormone is the key and the receptors they work upon are the locks. Bio-identical hormones fit perfectly in the lock, and unlock all of the beneficial effects of hormones, and when dosed properly, as with the BioTE® Method, have minimal to no side effects. Synthetic hormones, however, fit in the lock, but do not turn the lock and release many untoward side effects.
Our bio-identical hormone pellet method is one of the most widely studied, effective and safest methods of natural HRT available.
Pellet Therapy uses hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels. Patients have found that bio-identical hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is extremely effective. Implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones providing optimal therapy.
Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy – which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient- BioTE® Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy, is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 4 to 6 months, without any “roller coaster” effect.
Because the hormones used are completely natural, BioTE Pellet Therapy is ideal for patients wanting the benefits of a natural hormone, without the drawbacks of a synthetic.
Pellets contain a natural plant source of estrogen and testosterone. A compounding pharmacist, using strict federal guidelines, compounds the estrogen and testosterone utilized in the pellets.
These pellets, which are smaller than a grain of rice, are placed in the fatty tissue underneath the skin and most closely mimic the actions of healthy ovaries and testicles with regards to hormone release into the bloodstream. The implantation procedure is easily performed in the office.
In studies, when compared to conventional hormone replacement therapy, pellets have been shown to be extremely effective for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, and improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response and performance, relief of depression, anxiety, irritability, mood swings, and many others. Pellet implants have been used to treat migraine and menstrual headaches. It also helps with vaginal dryness, incontinence, urinary urgency and frequency, to name a few. Moreover, hundreds of studies show natural testosterone to be HIGHLY PREVENTATVE against breast cancer, osteoporosis, Alzheimers, dementia, to name a few.
It’s really about a patient making an informed decision. Researched and developed since 1939 in the US and Europe, there is a myriad of data to support the ‘long term’ safety and efficacy of hormones delivered by pellet implants. Bio-identical hormone Pellet Therapy is being used safely in 5 continents and has been studied for 8 decades, not only looking at safety and efficacy, but also in the prevention of disease states such as breast cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s dementia, Type 2 diabetes and so much more.
There are literally hundreds of studies available with regards to hormone pellet therapy. However, many physicians and the general public are uneducated, misinformed, and in some cases mislead on the benefits of bio-identical hormone therapy.
Pellet therapy is subcutaneous. This means that a bio-identical hormone pellet is injected under the skin. This provides a more effective, more convenient delivery method for a number of reasons.
