Did you know hormones rule your world? That’s right! Hormones are responsible for most of your bodily functions and affect everything from your digestion, appetite, immune function, libido, and mood. Even a slight imbalance in your hormones can have an enormous effect on how you feel. And that’s why Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy might be just what the doctor ordered.

Fortunately, it’s fast and straightforward to re-balance your hormones with hormone replacement therapy. But not all hormone replacement is created equally. So, we’re here to teach you the difference between Hormone Replacement Therapy and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. That way, you can choose the treatment that’s right for you!

Hormone Replacement Therapy vs. Bioidentical HRT

Your hormones fluctuate daily, and your levels decrease as you age. So, if you don’t feel your best, you’re not alone. Luckily, you can replace some of your primary hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.

With standard hormone replacement, your doctor replaces your hormones with synthetic hormones derived from pregnant horses’ urine and other synthetic hormones. Traditional hormone therapy is effective and will make you feel better.

Bioidentical hormones are artificial hormones derived from plant estrogens that are chemically identical to your natural hormones. Bioidentical hormones come in pills, patches, creams, gels, and injections.

What Are BHRT Pellets?

BHRT pellets or BioTe, are bioidentical hormones in a pellet form that your doctor inserts under your skin. To begin BHRT, you’ll need a painless, five-minute procedure. During your treatment, I’ll insert a tiny BHRT pellet under the skin of your buttock. If you lack or have a high amount of certain hormones, you may be a fantastic candidate for BHRT.

However, please understand – BHRT doesn’t treat disease!

About BioTe 

Why do I use the BioTe  Hormone Pellets? As a physician, I want the best for my patients, so I use BioTe products because they’re the purest, most tested, and safest bio-identical hormone replacement products on the market.  

How Fast Does BioTe Work?

When you’re not feeling well, you need a solution that will work quickly. You’ll see the benefits of hormone therapy in as little as four weeks. However, full hormone optimization can take up to six months, depending on your needs.

What Symptoms Does BioTe Treat?

A hormone imbalance can cause a wide range of symptoms, and some of them can be downright debilitating. Here are some of the primary symptoms:

Weight Gain

Are you frustrated by weight gain, or do you have trouble maintaining your weight? It might be your hormones since hormone imbalances can cause weight gain. 

But, you can return to a healthy weight with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. BioTe stops weight gain and helps you shed those stubborn pounds.


If you regularly experience fatigue, it can feel like you’re dragging through your day. When your hormone levels are out of balance, you’ll feel fatigued and have trouble falling and staying asleep. If you balance your hormones with BHRT, you’ll feel more energized during your day.


Are you sleep-deprived? Proper sleep is crucial for you to feel, look, and function your best. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help you get the essential sleep you need, so you feel rested and have more energy.

Mood Swings

Balanced hormones are essential to your mood. Unbalanced hormones can cause mood fluctuations that cause you to feel down and make life more challenging. Harmonize your spirit with the help of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, and feel like yourself again.

Low Libido

Are you wondering where your libido went? Hormones drive and are vital to your sexual desire. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help you get your mojo back.

Sexual Dysfunction

If you’ve experienced sexual dysfunction, it can be disheartening. And it’s extra challenging if you have a partner to satisfy. 

There’s a link between your hormones and sexual dysfunction. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can balance and restore your hormones, renew your sexual interest, and deliver powerful sexual satisfaction.


Hormonal imbalances can cause depression. If you battle the blues, you’re not alone. Depression can be debilitating and adversely affect your life.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can reverse depression and return your joy and zest for life.

Hot Flashes

If you’re peri or post-menopausal, no doubt, you’re familiar with hot flashes and have spent many sweaty nights tossing and turning. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can reduce hot flashes and stabilize your hormones.

Uterine Fibroids

Abnormal hormonal balances can cause fibroids in your uterus. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can prevent and reverse your fibroid symptoms.

Memory Loss or Fog

If you’re experiencing memory loss, it can adversely affect your ability to handle daily tasks. Your ability to remember is powerfully affected by hormones. Remember how you felt when you were 20? Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Prevent and reverse memory loss.
