HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
The Biote Method of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
What is BioTe?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a method of restoring the balance of your hormones and aiming to relieve these symptoms, using compounded hormones that are identical in structure to those your body naturally produces. That way, your body recognizes and uses these replacement hormones in exactly the same way it would hormones it produces naturally.
The Biote Method of hormone optimization is the result of condensing over 80 years of scientific research into a program that may help with the earliest signs of aging.
The Biote Method uses pellets, which are about the size of a grain of rice, for hormone optimization. Your provider at AST Primary Care inserts these tiny pellets under the skin during a simple, in-office procedure.
The pellets will then dissolve slowly over time – they only need to be re-administered approximately every 3-5 months, depending on the patient.
As the pellets dissolve, they release a steady stream of hormones into your bloodstream, and will ultimately be completely absorbed, leaving nothing behind.
