Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

We see the world through the lens of our hormones. If we are in balance we feel good and the world is a cheerful place. When out of balance, we may lack energy and our world may be sad, frustrating, or just less enjoyable than it used to be. Lowering levels of important and needed hormones can cause symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, mood swings, depression, weight gain, poor memory, low motivation, and loss of libido for women.

Symptoms for women

  • Hot flashes
  • Heart discomfort (heart skipping, heart racing, tightness)
  • Sleep problems
  • Depressive mood
  • Irritability
  • Anxiety
  • Physical and mental exhaustion
  • Sexual problems
  • Bladder problems
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Joint and muscular discomfort


Bio-identical hormones are built to have the exact molecular structure as the hormones that are made by your own body. That is really important in order to provide the best symptom control with the least side effects. Your body knows how to use bio-identical hormones and replacement is intended to equal a optimal level. We believe and have seen in practice that this provides better symptom control for hormone deficiency, often with positive side effects. Our goal is to help you achieve youthful hormone levels that will promote optimal aging and help you enjoy your life.

Full Life Wellness Center - Individualized Care


At Full Life Wellness Center, our Providers use a holistic approach to help you feel better. We have lots of experience and success with the individualized care required for proper management of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. We begin with a comprehensive review of your symptoms. Testing is done with blood analysis drawn at our office. Then you will meet with the provider to discuss the results, and, if appropriate, they will prescribe a dosage of bio-identical hormones. We mostly use subcutaneous hormone pellet implants as they provide the most reliable, consistent delivery. Other preparations or delivery methods may be used also depending on the individual's needs and preferences. Each patient is monitored carefully through regular follow up visits and blood testing to ensure symptom relief at the most appropriate dose.

What is the pellet insertion procedure like?

Pellet insertions are done in office under a local anesthetic. The bio-identical hormone pellet is slipped painlessly under the skin, typically in the hip. The procedure takes less than 5 minutes. Once the pellet is inserted it dissolves slowly, releasing a steady, low dose of natural hormone into the blood stream. Pellets last about 3-4 months and reinsertion requires a quick visit to the Full Life office.
