We offer natural bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) utilizing BioTE’s pellet therapy. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a way to identically replace the hormones men and women lose over the course of their lives. Balancing hormones in this natural way helps patients learn more about this hormone replacement therapy utilizing BioTE’s method of pellet therapy.
What is pellet therapy?
Full Circle Health and Wellness offers bio-identical hormone replacement therapy in the form of subcutaneous pellets. These pellets are inserted into the hip area during an in-office visit after testing has been done to determine the exact quantity of the hormone each patient requires. Every dose is custom created based on your tests to ensure you have the exact number of hormones needed over time.
It is said that bio-identical hormones, such as the ones used by BioTE Medical, work better with the natural chemistry of the body because they most closely replicate the molecular structure of the hormones that naturally occur within the body.
How long do pellets last?
Pellets last between 3 and 6 months depending on gender, weight, absorption rates and the amount of deficiency or surplus of hormones present within the patient at the time of administration. Pellets are reinserted between 2 and 4 times per year to help keep hormones optimized and balanced.
What is the primary advantage to BHRT pellet therapy?
Pellet therapy differs from pills and creams in that it allows for consistent dosing throughout the day. Other administrations of hormones can create a rollercoaster effect for the user as the pills and creams do not release consistent amounts of the hormone throughout the day.
