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 
• Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a method of restoring the balance 
of your hormones and 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. Dr. Taymour inserts these tiny pellets under the skin during a simple, in-office procedure.
• The pellets will then dissolve slowly over time – 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, which your body will then use as it needs. Over time, the pellets will be
completely absorbed, leaving nothing behind.

while many men may experience a similar phenomenon relating to testosterone, known 
as andropause or more commonly as Low T (low testosterone).

• 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.
