What is 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 human hormone. Other supplemental hormones such as the ones administered by conventional physicians are not bio-identical. Bio-identicals are derived from plants while synthetic hormones are derived from animals. Hormone replacement therapy is the purpose of the bio-identical hormones. People who lack certain hormones or who have too much of a certain hormone may benefit from BHRT.

What are BHRT pellets?

BHRT pellets are subcutaneous implants that are inserted into the hip area. They are made of custom compounded hormones and natural binders to hold them together. The hormones are compounded in one of two pharmacies in the United States that are licensed FDA outsourcing centers and are held to strict standards. Every batch of hormones is tested for consistency, purity and comes with our guarantee that our patients are being provided the best possible therapy to help their healing.

What is the BHRT pellet insertion process like?

The BHRT pellet insertion process is straightforward, fast and simple. First, find a BioTE provider. If your provider is not listed, nominate your provider to become BioTE certified. Then, schedule an office visit with your BioTE provider to test your current hormone levels. Based on your comprehensive consultation and thorough blood work panel, your provider will determine if you are a candidate for BioTE pellet therapy. Then a quick follow up appointment will be scheduled for your unique pellet therapy insertion.
