Bio-identical hormones are non-synthetic, plant- based hormones that are identical biologically to human hormones. We are pleased to have partnered with BioTE® Medical in bringing Bio-Identical Pellet Hormone Replacement Therapy to the western slope. Pellet therapy is one of the most widely studied effective, and safest methods of natural hormone replacement therapy available.
Pellet therapy uses hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels. The pellets, which are smaller than a grain of rice, are placed in the fatty tissue under the skin and act as if an ovary or testicle is present. The pellets consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones providing optimum therapy. Because the hormones used are completely natural, pellet therapy is ideal for patients wanting the benefits of natural hormones, without the drawbacks of a synthetic. The pellets typically last 3-5 months in women and 5-6 months in men.
