Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
HRT is a specialized medical treatment meant to fix hormone imbalances and shortages in the body. Hormones are very important for maintaining many things in the body, such as metabolism, mood, sexual health, and general health.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
YOUR HORMONE SOLUTION:
At Anodyne Pain and Health Group, our experienced doctors use Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), which uses tiny pellets to treat symptoms caused by hormonal imbalances. This method is very different from getting shots every day or every week. Instead of synthetic testosterone or estrogen, these inserted pellets contain bio-identical hormones and last from 3 months (for women) to 5 months (for men).
WHAT IS BHRT?
It is a natural, plant-based treatment that aims to balance hormone levels in men and women. As we age, our bodies can experience a decline in essential hormones like estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone.
BHRT uses bioidentical hormones, which are chemically identical to those produced by your own body, to help restore these hormone levels to their optimal range. This treatment is delivered through tiny pellets placed just under the skin, which steadily release hormones into your body over time.
It’s customized to your individual needs based on comprehensive lab work and consultation, helping to ensure a treatment approach that aligns with your body’s specific requirements. This can lead to improved energy, better sleep, mood stability, and overall enhanced quality of life.
How Long Does a BHRT Pellet Take to Work?
Every patient undergoing HRT has unique symptoms and their path to achieving hormone balance is equally distinct.
Many patients undergoing natural hormone therapy start to experience some improvement in their symptoms as early as four weeks or less, however, reaching the optimal hormonal balance could take up to six months or even longer.
The journey through bioidentical hormone therapy is tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual patient.
Who is a Good Candidate?
A good candidate is typically someone experiencing symptoms associated with hormone imbalance. These symptoms can vary widely and might include persistent fatigue, mood swings, difficulty sleeping, low libido, weight gain, or even depression and anxiety.
Both men and women can be affected, often as they reach middle age when natural hormone levels start to decline. BHRT might also be a good fit for individuals who haven’t found relief with traditional synthetic hormone therapies, as Biote’s® treatment uses bioidentical hormones that mirror those naturally produced by the body. However, it isn’t suitable for everyone, and certain health conditions may affect eligibility.
It’s always essential to discuss your symptoms, medical history, and health goals with a healthcare provider, like the experts at Anodyne Pain and Health Group, to determine if this could be a beneficial part of your wellness journey.
