How Do BHRT Pellets Balance Hormones?

By: Linda Spencer


Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (also called BHRT) uses hormones that are chemically identical to the ones produced in our bodies. Spencer Wellness Centre administers BioTE® pellets to address hormone-related conditions like menopause that impact your quality of life. So, how does this process work, and what are some of the benefits of pellet therapy?

Today, nurse practitioner Linda Spencer takes a closer look at how BHRT pellets restore balance to your hormone levels. Spencer Wellness Centre has helped many Indianapolis, IN, area patients experience optimal health and wellness.

Why choose BHRT?

Our hormones fluctuate as we age, causing a number of unwanted changes in the body. This includes menopause symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, and mood swings. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy replaces the hormones that your body no longer produces, bringing your levels back into balance. They also protect our bone, brain, and heart health.

Additional benefits of BHRT include:

  • A safe and effective therapy
  • More natural than synthetic hormone therapy
  • Treatment is minimally invasive and convenient
  • Our bodies recognize and process bioidentical hormones easily

What is pellet therapy?

BioTE pellets are small, about the size of a grain of rice. They are placed just beneath the skin during a short procedure at Spencer Wellness Centre. We use steri-strips to close the small incisions, so no invasive measures or sutures are necessary.

The pellets slowly release hormones into your system over time. This makes them more effective than creams, patches, and pills. Best of all, you won’t have to worry about taking a daily supplement or medication every day — the pellets do all the work for you.

How long do the BioTE pellets last?

You may experience relief from menopause 1 – 3 weeks after receiving BHRT in Indianapolis, IN. Optimal results occur within eight weeks. Nurse practitioner Linda Spencer can obtain follow-up labs 4 – 5 weeks after pellet insertion to confirm that your hormone levels are where they should be. We recommend replacing your BioTE pellets 2 – 4 times a year based on how well you respond to treatment.

People report an increase in energy, sex drive, and overall sense of well-being after pellet therapy with Spencer Wellness Centre.

Of course, results vary based on your hormone levels and health. Our experienced team develops custom treatment plans to help you reach your unique goals.
