Hormone Therapy (BioTe)
The body’s hormones aid in a wide variety of natural processes. Because of this, changes in the amounts of testosterone and estrogen hormones in your body can have a major impact on your health. Proper hormone balance is vital. When you’re experiencing a hormone imbalance, you may be in need of BioTE® bio-identical hormone therapy.
BioTE hormone therapy is a method of restoring proper balance to your hormones without having to contend with the issues that can come along with other types of hormone therapy. This treatment option is extremely effective for both men and women.
How Does it Work?
Some hormone therapies offer synthetic hormones, which are risky and can cause problems. Instead of dealing with side effects, try bio-identical hormones. These plant-based hormones are contained within pellets. A grain of rice is larger than each of these tiny pellets. In the comfort of our office, the pellets are implanted underneath the patient’s skin, within the fatty tissue.
The pellets supply patients with hormones for a period of up to four to six months. For 24 hours a day, these pellets will be providing even, consistent doses of bio-identical hormones. This is very similar to the body’s natural release of hormones. Because this happens automatically, you won’t have to remember to do a thing!
Because there are numerous estrogen and testosterone receptors throughout the body, an imbalance of these hormones affects many mental and physical processes for both men and women. BioTE hormone therapy is able to correct these processes.
BioTe for Women
With a hormone imbalance comes a lack of serotonin. Serotonin is tied to emotional stability. Without a proper balance of estrogen and testosterone, less serotonin is created by the brain. Hormone therapy corrects this, so that mood issues such as irritability, depression, anger, and anxiety are all reduced, as is the occurrence of mood swings. Sleep is also made easier.
Having restored estrogen levels will make several health issues less likely to occur, including skin laxity, hot flashes, colon cancer, ovary failure, thinning of the vaginal wall, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, heart disease, vision problems, and tooth loss.
When a woman’s testosterone level is restored to be in proper balance with her estrogen level, this will make breast cancer, dementia, and weight gain much less likely. It can also boost the health of the musculoskeletal system, helping to avoid osteoporosis, joint and muscle pain, muscle atrophy, and poor muscle tone.
Other issues that can be addressed using BioTE hormone therapy include menstrual headaches and migraines, incontinence, vaginal dryness, and reduced sex drive.
BioTe for Men
Once men experience a loss of testosterone, something which often starts in their early 30s, they must deal with many mental and physical issues.
A decline in testosterone means a loss in muscle mass and an increase in weight gain. Men find themselves less interested in sexual activity and begin to suffer from erectile dysfunction. They also experience feelings of irritation and depression, accompanied by a general mental fogginess and physical sluggishness.
BioTE’s natural bio-identical hormone therapy is the ideal therapeutic method for alleviating these issues and bringing male testosterone back up to its normal level. This therapy can also offer resistance against health problems such as osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s, prostate cancer, and cardiovascular disease.
