What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a natural alternative to synthetic hormone replacement therapies. Our subcutaneous BHRT utilizes bio-identical hormones derived from natural, plant-based substances. Unlike synthetic hormones, the structure of the bio-identical hormone — testosterone, estrogen, or both — most closely matches each patient’s individual needs.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement — A Superior Option
Being mass-produced, synthetic hormones are composed of either horse urine or artificially formulated (synthetic) hormones in a lab. Manufacturers intentionally create synthetic hormones that are slightly different than natural hormones in order to patent those formulations.
Health practitioners have been performing BHRT with natural, plant-based pellet implants since the 1930s. Recently there has been a resurgence in the number of practitioners offering pellet therapy, after studies revealed the natural hormones may be a safer, more effective alternative to synthetic hormone modalities that have been popular for decades.
A Hormone Replacement Therapy that Patients and Practitioners Trust
Elite Medical & Wellness Center in Port Orange, FL, administers BHRT using BioTE pellets. This method was developed by BioTE Medical, whose CEO, Dr. Gary Donovitz, has successfully performed over 50,000 BioTE pellet insertions and has trained over a thousand medical practitioners in the process of hormone optimization.
For men with low testosterone, research consistently shows that subcutaneous BHRT with pellets, like BioTE, may be a superior method for delivering hormones to men with low testosterone because of the individualized dosing, steady state of hormone release, and natural over synthetic options. Depending on the patient, the practitioner may also prescribe a detoxification program, thyroid supplements, nutritional supplements, mental health support, and more.
