What is the goal of Hormone Optimization Therapy in Women?
The goal of balancing hormones in women is to provide you with an improved quality of life. In addition to feeling great, studies have shown hormone optimization may be able to help reduces your chances of certain diseases as well as the severity of certain conditions.
What is Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for women begins to work to optimize hormones within the patient within 7-10 days. Every BHRT pellet is custom created with every patient’s unique physiology in mind. Because of this, every treatment is tailored to the patient and will have the greatest possible success in helping them achieve balance. Furthermore, BHRT uses bio-identical hormones derived from plants, not animals, which more closely mimics the hormones naturally present within men and women than synthetic or animal derived hormones. BHRT is bio-identical to your own natural hormones produced and may have fewer side effects.
What can I expect from BHRT?
While everyone’s results are different, the process for considering, getting, monitoring and continuing with BHRT is typically the same with all our patients. Your first appointment with your certified BioTE provider will include hormone testing. The next appointment will be to review your tests, after which you will be able to get a BHRT pellet inserted on that or the next visit.
