Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a treatment that uses bioidentical hormones that come from natural sources like soy and yams. These hormones are bioidentical to the hormones your body creates naturally. For that reason, they provide men and women with a safe and incredibly effective way to achieve balanced hormone levels and resolve hormonal imbalances.

Several factors cause hormonal imbalances, including aging, genetics, illness, lifestyle, and medications. Hormonal imbalances can affect men and women during andropause and menopause, but also earlier in life due to other factors. This treatment method is an effective way to balance hormones without dealing with the risk that comes with using synthetic hormone treatments of the past.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Treatment?

Since different patients require different BHRT treatment methods, results vary. Some patients notice an improvement in their symptoms within a few days of beginning the treatment process; for others, it takes several weeks to months. During your initial consultation, once we determine your deficiency, we can give you a better idea of when you can expect to achieve the most noticeable results after beginning a treatment process with your prescribed treatment method.

How Long Will I Need to Undergo Treatment?

Regarding hormone replacement therapy, every patient is different. We will evaluate your levels, create a customized treatment plan, and give you details about what you can expect from the treatment process, including how long you should use bioidentical hormones to achieve the best results.

The treatment delivers anti-aging benefits that positively impact physical, mental, and emotional health and wellness. It changes and improves how you look, how you feel, and even how you interact with those around you.

Our Custom BHRT Plans

Each patient deals with a different level of hormonal imbalance, which is why we develop customized BHRT plans for each patient. Our unique plans allow us to customize a dosage of the necessary hormones to balance the body. The process begins with an initial consultation. We need to perform a standard blood draw to evaluate your hormonal levels so that we can determine what your body needs to achieve balance.

Then, we will describe the different treatment options and methods and discuss your preferences, lifestyle, and needs to develop a unique hormone balancing plan that helps alleviate your symptoms so you can experience optimal health and wellness from balanced hormone levels.


Pellet Therapy

Pellet therapy is a treatment that uses hormone pellets that are implanted into the body to deliver a steady stream of hormones to the blood. We prescribe these pellets in the exact dosage your body needs to obtain hormonal balance. The treatment process is simple, quick, and only takes minutes to complete. Once we prescribe and receive your pellet, you’ll come into the office for the implantation process.

The Treatment Process

One of our clinicians will cleanse an area on the skin, typically the hip or buttocks, and make a small incision. The pellet will be implanted, and the incision will be closed with a Steri-Strip. Your body will absorb the pellet and begin delivering the exact hormones needed directly into your bloodstream to maintain stabilized hormones over time.

This process requires no work on the patient’s part and patients typically only need a few follow-up treatments each year to maintain balanced levels. If your body needs more or fewer hormones at any point, we can adjust your dosage based on your follow-up blood test results.

Achieve and Maintain Hormonal Balance

If you are living with imbalanced hormones, whether due to age, genetics, or other factors out of your control, BHRT is an effective solution that can improve the quality of your life. We can customize a safe and effective treatment plan with pellet therapy or another solution so that you can experience all the benefits of health and wellness that results when your hormone levels are exactly where they should be.
