Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
Ashland Integrative Medicine offers natural bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, utilizing BioTE’s pellet therapy. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a way to bio-identically replace the hormones men and women lose over the course of their lives.
Why Bio-identical Pellet Therapy?
Because it’s easy! As a patient, you are pelleted 2-4 insertions per year. This way you don’t have to think about it and the hormone is available when your body needs it.
What is Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy?
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy can come in oral, topical, and pellet forms. BHRT is a much better formulation of hormone replacement. Pellets have advantages over the other administrations of hormone therapies, primarily the consistent administration of the hormone prevents rollercoaster dosing that comes from creams and pills.
How long does a Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Pellet take to work?
Each patient’s symptoms are unique and each patient’s paths to optimization is unique. Most patients report some symptom resolution in as little as two to four weeks, but full optimization may take up to 6 months. Your journey will be specialized to fit your specific needs. Just as it doesn’t take you 1-2 weeks to get out of balance, it doesn't resolve that quickly either.
