Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy or BHRT is the most natural way to overcome hormone deficiencies and hormone imbalances. Bio-identical hormones have many benefits over other forms of hormones. BHRT hormones are delivered to patients in pellet form.
What Are the Benefits of BHRT Pellets?
There are many benefits to BHRT pellets over traditional pellets. The first is that the hormones within BHRT pellets are bio-identical, meaning that BHRT hormones are structurally the same as naturally occurring human hormones. The second is that these hormones are found in nature and are plant derived. This implies that the hormones used in BHRT pellet therapy for patients are more natural than ones prescribed by conventional physicians. Another benefit of pellet therapy is that the pellets remain within the body and consistently provide the dosing that the body requires. This is different from the other hormone replacement therapy administrations in which the hormone is provided inconsistently in the form of pills, resulting in a rollercoaster effect for the man.

How long does a Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Pellet take to work?
As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Most patients report some symptom resolution in as little as two to four weeks, but full optimization may take up to six months. Your journey will be customized to fit your specific needs. It takes more than one to two weeks for your hormones to get out of balance, so expect it to take time to resolve.
