BHRT Pellets: What Are They and What Do They Do?
(http://ow.ly/1RnF30mI2fO)

Has your doctor suggested that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy may help balance your hormones? If so, you might wonder what BHRT pellets are and how they work. The pellets are made out of bioidentical hormones (which come from plant sources), and they are injected into your hip. The pellets then release the right amount of your hormones that you need to feel like yourself again.

If you're experiencing the symptoms of a hormone imbalance, talk to your doctor about BioTe pellets.
