Bio-identical Hormone Replacement

Hormone Replacement Therapy
How Does Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy work?

When age, disease, or most commonly, environmental chemicals prevent you from making healthy levels of a key hormone necessary for health and happiness, providing a steady supply of the missing hormone is critical to restoring and maintaining health. One of the most exciting benefits of Total Health’s BHT is that it involves a pellet-based delivery system that is custom compounded to meet each patient’s individual needs.

While hormones can be administered via different methods such as patches, injections, creams or gels, only tiny pellets the size of rice grains placed into the fat can provide steady state availability of deficient hormones for months at a time.

BHRT for Men and Women
Bio-identical Hormone Therapy vs Conventional Hormone Replacement Therapy.

The difference is in how closely the hormone molecules used mirrors our own body’s hormones. Bioidentical hormones are molecularly identical to the hormones that our bodies naturally produce. Conventional hormones are synthetically made or derived from biological sources such as horse urine which less-closely resemble our body’s own. 

The result is that conventional non-human hormone therapies carry unwanted risks and unintended problems. Bioidentical hormone pellets are manufactured starting with a natural, plant derived product.

What to Expect?

If you are interested in receiving bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, your healthcare provider will first conduct blood tests to measure your various blood chemistry and hormone levels. Then, your TH specialist will select the BHRT formulation according to your biological needs in order to insert the proper dosage to best alleviate symptoms and reverse disease.

How is BHT administered?

At Total Health we consider many factors when determining which format is best for you.

 

While traditional bio-identical hormone can be administered in several ways, the optimal way to treat hormone imbalance is through Implantable pellets. 

Time released pellets are painlessly inserted into the body fat. They are extremely small and provide a steady hormone level for months. Once implanted beneath the skin, they deliver a consistent dose of hormones until completely dissolved.

 

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) pellets are a safe, efficient, and relatively painless way to restore your hormones to more youthful levels. Used since 1939, Bioidentical Hormone Pellet Therapy has been found to produce higher and more consistent levels than is possible to get from hormone creams, gels, or injections.  Bio-identical hormones are not suitable for oral ingestion as they are inactivated by the liver during the intestinal absorption process.
