What Is the Goal of Hormone Optimization Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) may offer relief for many common and debilitating symptoms that are often overlooked by medical providers. Some of these symptoms include exhaustion, stress, foggy thinking, weight gain, sleep disturbances, and so much more. Often, people with symptoms like these are suffering from hormonal imbalance. These ailments may be managed by getting to the root cause of these complex conditions and returning the patient to a state of hormone balance. BHRT may be a simple method for correcting these complex issues through hormone optimization.
What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) may balance hormones. Our studies show that patients may see the effects of hormone optimization four weeks after a pellet insertion. After insertion, a consistent dose of bioidentical hormones enters the bloodstream and may begin to balance hormones. BHRT is customized to the patient’s unique physiology and will work toward establishing a state of hormone balance within their body. We understand that one patient can make a difference, which is why certified BioTE providers tailor every hormone optimization treatment, ensuring each patient has the greatest chance of success in achieving hormonal balance. Furthermore, BioTE’s method of hormone optimization uses pellet therapy, which mimics the hormones already present within the body.
How Can a Patient Get Started With BHRT?
First, a patient can find a certified BioTE provider near them. If their health-care provider is not listed, they can nominate a provider to become certified. Next, they schedule an office visit to test current hormone levels. Based on a comprehensive consultation and extensive lab work, providers will determine candidacy through the BioTE method. Patients will schedule a quick follow-up appointment to review their results and for pellet therapy insertion.
What Can a Patient Expect From BHRT?
As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Some patients report symptom relief in as little as four weeks, but complete symptom relief may take up to six months. The BioTE method of hormone optimization therapy will be customized to balance each patient’s hormones and fit their specific needs.
