What is BHRT pellet therapy?

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, is the most natural way to overcome hormone deficiencies and hormone imbalances at any age. Bio-identical hormones have many benefits over conjugated hormones. These hormones are delivered to patients in the form of pellets. These pellets are placed just under the skin in an outpatient procedure with less than a week of recovery time before patients can return to their normal active lifestyles and exercise routines.

What are the benefits of BHRT pellets?

There are many benefits to BHRT pellets over traditional pellets. The first is that the hormones within BHRT pellets are bio-identical; meaning that they are structurally the same as naturally occurring human hormones. The second is that these hormones are found in nature and are plant-derived. This implies that the hormones used in BHRT pellet therapy for women are more natural and may have fewer negative interactions within the body. Another benefit of pellet therapy is that the pellets remain within the body and consistently provide the dosing that the body requires. This contrasts with other hormone replacement therapy administrations in which the hormone is provided in spurts, such as pills and creams, resulting in a rollercoaster effect of relief to discomfort for the patient.

What are pellets?

It is possible that insurance carriers do not provide coverage for BHRT because it is a natural treatment which cannot be patented and therefore cannot be approved by the FDA.

What are the conditions that may be able to be lessened in women through pellet therapy?
