What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
As we age, our bodies naturally start to reduce the amount of hormones like testosterone and estrogen they produce. Hormones such as these are incredibly important to how many areas of your body function – such as your brain, heart, bones, reproductive organs, and more. When these hormones are out of balance, people can experience a number of different symptoms. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a method of restoring the balance of your hormones by 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 Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
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. Our skilled providers insert these tiny pellets under the skin during a simple, in office procedure. The pellets will then dissolve slowly over time and 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.
The importance of Hormone Balance
Most women see a significant drop in estrogen and testosterone during menopause, while many men may experience a similar phenomenon relating to testosterone, know as andropause. Hormonal imbalances occur when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream. Hormones are important for regulating most major bodily processes. Because of their essential role in the body, even the smallest hormonal imbalance can cause side effects throughout the body.
Getting started with hormone optimization is easy. Contact us today to discuss if you may be a good candidate for hormone optimization.
BioTe has partnered with Tailor Made Compounding to offer our patients exclusive peptide packages to address both body composition and sexual function for both men and women.
What is a Peptide?
Peptides are naturally occurring biological molecules. Peptides are found in all living organisms and may play a key role in all manner of biological activity. Many health and cosmetic products contain different peptides for their potential anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and muscle building properties.
Sexual Function Packages
- Oxytocin Troches
Oxytocin is a hormone and neurotransmitter best known for being released in large amounts during labor and after nipple stimulation. It is also believed to be involved in a wide variety of physiological and pathological functions relating to both male and female sexual activity. Exogenous administration of oxytocin can improve libido, orgasm intensity and overall experience for both women and men.
- Scream Cream
Scream Cream is a combination of four active ingredients: L-citruline, Aminophyline, Ergoloid Mesylate and Pentoxifyline. L-citruline is converted in the body to L-arginine which has been shown to increase blood flow. Aminophyline and Ergoloid Mesylate are both known to cause vasodilation. And pentoxifyline, as an FDA approved product, is indicated for the treatment of intermittent claudication which should also assist in increasing blood flow to the application site.
- PT-141 or Bremelanotide
PT-141 or Bremelanotide is a synthetic, central melanocortin receptor agonist that increases a-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (a-MSH) in the body. PT-141 operates on the CNS, eliciting a more natural and desirable sexual response. PT-141 is an FDA-approved treatment for women with Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder.
Tadalafil is a proven erectile dysfunction medication and its effects are cumulative and improve with daily use. It is effective for both men and women.
Body Composition Package
- Fat Loss Cream
Aminophyline/Glycyrrhetinic Acid. Applied topically, aminophyline has been shown to activate protein kinase A (PKA), which increases fatty acid oxidation. Additionally, glycerrhetinic acid has been shown to inhibit adipogenesis and stimulate lipolysis in fat cells.
- LipoLean Injection
Methionine/Inositol/Choline plus B12 (Methylcobalamin) and Carnitine. This combination is based on the following known physiologic functions to assist in weight loss. Methionine is an amino acid that p\ays an important role in metabolism. Inositol is a B vitamin that helps metabolize fat and may improve insulin function. Choline is an essential nutrient. related to B vitamins, and assists in lipid metabolism and fatty acid transport. The injection can be given sub-Q 0.5ml two to three times weekly or IM 1.0ml weekly.
- Supress Capsules

- Sermorelin/Glycine Injection
Sermorelin is a synthetic hormone peptide equivalent to the first 29 amino acids in growth-hormone releasing hormone (GHRH). Glycine has been studied and shown to be a stimulatory agent on the pituitary gland to secrete growth hormone.
Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-I (GLP-I) analog that was approved in 2020 as a treatment method for improving glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes. Semaglutide shows great promise for patients who are having difficulty losing weight.
