Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BioTE)
Bioidentical Hormone Optimization
Amethyst Wellness is now offering Bioidentical Hormone Optimization for Men and Women with BioTe.
Studies show optimized hormones are necessary for good health. Pellet hormone therapy with BioTe optimizes hormone levels by using tiny pellets placed under the skin. After the age of 30, most people produce 3-10% less hormones every year. Hormone pellets, placed under the skin, release bioidentical estrogen and testosterone consistently into the bloodstream. Benefits of hormone replacement include increased energy and muscle strength, greater ability to lose weight, increased mental clarity, improvement in mood and greater quality of life.
Bioidentical hormone pellets contain the same chemical structure as your body’s natural hormone. Pellets introduce a steady stream of cardio-activated hormones into the bloodstream 24 hours a day for up to five months. Proper hormone levels are determined by a comprehensive blood work analysis. Individualized dosing is recommended for each patient based on lab values, medical history and current symptoms. Bioidentical hormones differ from synthetic methods, which cause numerous side effects. In fact, bioidentical hormone pellets are shown to be protective against some age-related health issues such as osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes.
People with the following symptoms of Low-T or low estrogen may be candidates for Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy:
- Lack of energy and fatigue during the day
- Difficulty sleeping at night

- Moody, anxious or depressed
- Weight gain including increased fat around the mid-section

Bioidentical Hormone Pellet therapy may be an effective treatment for low estrogen levels and low testosterone levels.
