Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Both women and men can suffer from hormone imbalances. Your hormones are one of the most important regulatory systems that exist in your body. They act as messengers, interacting with specific target cells and organs to stimulate them into action. Hormones keep the whole body in balance and are crucial to the health and vitality of both men and women. Produced by glands in the body, hormones control most bodily functions – everything from straightforward needs like hunger and sleep to complex ones like the onset of puberty and controlling the reproductive system. Even just small imbalances in your hormones can cause life-changing symptoms. As we age, hormone production changes and hormonal imbalance can occur. Unbalanced hormones can have a variety of side effects and symptoms.
What Conditions Can Hormone Pellet Therapy Treat?
Estrogen pellets are prescribed to treat the effects of menopause, or things like chronically low mood, reduced bone density, and cardiovascular health. Testosterone pellets treat a wide range of reproductive, emotional, and non-reproductive conditions. Some of these include low energy, chronic exhaustion, sexual dysfunction, mood swings, irritability, and more.
How It Works
This minor surgical procedure is performed in our office under local anesthesia. A small incision is made through the skin where the hormone pellet is inserted. The most common place to insert the pellets is the upper buttocks. Hormone pellets are similar in size to a grain of rice, so they are entirely unnoticeable once placed.
What Results Can I Expect?
As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Your journey will be customized to fit your specific needs. It takes more than one to two weeks for your hormones to get out of balance, so expect it to take time for your symptoms to resolve. But once they do, you’ll begin feeling better!
Hormonal Imbalance in Women
Many women experience a female hormone imbalance and don’t realize it. Female hormone imbalance symptoms can range from subtle to debilitating and are often masked by medications that are prescribed for anxiety, depression, insomnia, weight gain, and more.
For women, having one’s hormones checked regularly will reveal whether their hormones are optimized and help avoid hormonal imbalance in a woman’s endocrine system.
Hormonal Imbalance in Men
If you are dealing with mood changes, depression, irritability, or stress, your testosterone levels may be low. Having low testosterone levels can affect your emotional health in several ways, so if you suffer from symptoms of testosterone deficiency, it’s essential to take advantage of the emotional benefits of BioTE‘s bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. BHRT will treat the source of your symptoms and restore your testosterone to its ideal level. Showing the signs of aging can be frustrating.
Testosterone Optimization Therapy
Men’s testosterone peaks about the age of 20 and slowly starts to decline about 1% a year. As men age, they may begin to experience symptoms that can be attributed to a less than optimal testosterone level. These symptoms include but are not limited to:
-Increase in body fat
-Decrease in Muscle Mass/Strength
-Decrease in Libido (sex drive),
-Lower in motivation,
-Decrease in mental focus and memory.
Having a lower testosterone also increases men’s over chance for mortality and an overall increased risk for disease. Increase risk of arthritis, dementia, heart disease, and alzheimers
Testosterone optimization may help with these symptoms. We specialize in therapies that help men reach optimal testosterone levels.
