The Biote Method of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

The Biote Method of hormone optimization results from condensing over 80 years of scientific research into a program that may help with the earliest signs of aging.

How It Works:

  • The Biote Method uses pellets, which are about the size of a grain of rice, for hormone optimization. Your provider at Essential Infusions Plus (Rochelle, Rockford, Freeport, Byron, or Winfield) 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, which your body will then use as it needs. Over time, the pellets will be completely absorbed, leaving nothing behind.

Biote Nutraceuticals is a line of dietary supplements developed to assist patients with various vitamin and mineral deficiencies, which may cause low energy, mood swings, poor sleep, and other symptoms.


The Importance of Hormone Balance

Most women see a significant drop in estrogen and testosterone during menopause. At the same time, many men may experience a similar phenomenon relating to testosterone, known as andropause or, more commonly, Low T (low testosterone).

  • Hormonal imbalances occur when there is too much or too little hormone in the bloodstream.
  • Hormones regulate most major bodily processes. Because of their essential role, even the smallest hormonal imbalance can cause side effects throughout the body.

What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

  • As we age, our bodies naturally start to reduce the amount of hormones they produce, like testosterone and estrogen.
  • Hormones such as these are incredibly important for how many areas of your body function, including your brain, heart, bones, reproductive organs, and more.
  • When these hormones are out of balance, people can experience many different symptoms.
  • Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a method of restoring the balance of your hormones and aiming to relieve these symptoms, using compounded hormones 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 produce hormones naturally.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?

BHRT is a personalized approach to hormone optimization that uses hormones identical in structure to those naturally produced by the body. Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones are derived from plant sources and closely mimic your body’s hormones, making them safer and more effective for hormone replacement therapy.

Who can benefit from Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

BHRT can benefit individuals experiencing symptoms of hormone imbalance, including menopausal or perimenopausal women, men with low testosterone levels, individuals experiencing symptoms of thyroid dysfunction, and those seeking relief from symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, mood swings, and decreased libido.

How does Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy differ from traditional hormone therapy?

Traditional hormone therapy often involves the use of synthetic hormones that may not fully mimic the body’s natural hormones. In contrast, BHRT utilizes hormones identical in structure to those produced by the body, resulting in a safer and more effective treatment option with fewer side effects.

What are the potential side effects of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

While BHRT is generally well-tolerated, some individuals may experience mild side effects such as temporary fluctuations in hormone levels, minor skin irritation at the site of pellet insertion, or changes in menstrual patterns. These side effects are typically temporary and resolve on their own as the body adjusts to hormone therapy.

How long does it take to see results with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Many individuals begin to notice improvements in their symptoms within a few weeks of starting BHRT, with full benefits typically experienced within three to six months. However, results may vary depending on individual hormone levels, overall health, and adherence to treatment protocols.

Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Safe?

Yes, when prescribed and monitored by a qualified healthcare provider, BHRT is considered safe for most individuals. Our experienced medical professionals at Essential Infusions Plus conduct thorough evaluations and closely monitor hormone levels throughout treatment to ensure optimal safety and efficacy.

How long do the effects of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy last?

The duration of BHRT effects varies depending on individual factors such as metabolism, hormone levels, and lifestyle habits. Typically, hormone pellets are administered every three to five months to maintain optimal hormone levels and sustain the benefits of treatment.

Can Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy help with weight loss?

While BHRT is not specifically designed for weight loss, many individuals experience improvements in metabolic function and body composition due to hormone optimization. By restoring hormonal balance, BHRT may support efforts to achieve and maintain a healthy weight alongside proper diet and exercise.

How do I know if Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is right for me?

Suppose you are experiencing symptoms of hormone imbalance, such as fatigue, mood swings, weight gain, or decreased libido. In that case, BHRT may be an effective solution for restoring your vitality and well-being. Schedule a consultation with our experienced medical professionals at Essential Infusions Plus to discuss your symptoms and determine if BHRT is right for you.
