HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
Hormones can rejuvenate, regenerate and restore. They are powerful chemical messengers that circulate throughout the body and travel to specific cells to orchestrate many vital internal functions. But even a small fluctuation in hormone levels can cause big changes at the cellular level — or disrupt the delicate balance throughout your entire body. Too much or too little of a hormone can have serious consequences for your overall health and well-being.
Hormone imbalance in perimenopause, menopause and andropause causes many symptoms. The hormone imbalances women and men experience at the onset of perimenopause, menopause and andropause can cause many unwanted symptoms such as weight gain, memory loss, aging skin and loss of libido, but these and other symptoms are treatable with BioTE hormone pellet therapy, a treatment designed to correct hormonal imbalances. These imbalances occur when one or more of the body’s key hormones are deficient. Hormone pellet therapy works by steadily replacing and rebalancing the missing hormones in the body.”,
The Danger of Hormone Imbalance
You can see why hormone fluctuation and depletion during perimenopause, menopause and andropause wreak havoc on the body. Research repeatedly points to the relationship between the hormone imbalance in perimenopause, menopause, and andropause and an increased risk for developing cancer, osteoporosis, stroke, thyroid malfunction and other age-related disorders.
It’s considered the norm for men and women to experience a decline in health at this stage of the aging process. Both women and men are likely to experience problems such as depression, anxiety, memory loss, sleep disturbances, libido issues and sexual dysfunction, just to name a few of the issues.
Help for Hormone Imbalance
You do not have to suffer through these life-altering symptoms! Help is available — naturally and safely — with BioTE® hormone pellet therapy. You’ll find a more thorough explanation about how hormone pellet therapy works to alleviate the common symptoms of perimenopause, menopause and andropause in the many articles on this site.
Choosing Hormone Replacement Therapy
Maintaining this delicate hormone balance is one reason to be cautious when selecting hormone replacement therapy. The goal should always be hormonal balance that is predicated on research rather than experimentation or guessing. Many therapies merely attempt to replenish estrogen and/or progesterone and testosterone, but they never achieve homeostasis. Any endocrinologist will tell you that hormone balance is the foundation of health. Research continues to demonstrate that hormones are the key to the intricate interrelationships of the body’s systems. They play a pivotal role in our overall health.
Hormone Pellet Therapy
Hormones are chemicals made by the glands that act to control certain actions of cells and organs. In essence, hormones regulate your body’s functions and keep things running smoothly. However, these hormones can become imbalanced or deficient in a condition known as hormone imbalance. Hormone replacement therapy is one type of treatment designed to correct this problem, but not all forms are created equally. BioTE® hormone pellet therapy goes above and beyond in the treatment of hormone imbalance to provide the best results.
What is Hormone Pellet Therapy?
Hormone pellet therapy is a treatment created to address hormonal imbalance. Hormonal imbalance occurs when one or more of the body’s key hormones is deficient or otherwise not at its optimal production level. This issue can occur in men and women.
Symptoms of hormonal imbalance include:
- Extreme fatigue
- Mood swings
- Tension and irritability
- Lack of sleep
- Memory loss
- Lack of focus
- Brain fog
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Weight gain
- Joint pain
- Migraines and severe headaches
- Bladder symptoms
- Decreased sex drive and performance
Hormonal imbalance also seriously affects bone health, breast health, brain health, heart health and other critical systems in the body. Hormonal imbalance has a frightening mix of both tangible and intangible symptoms; some you may notice immediately, and others mask themselves and occur behind the scenes.
How Does Hormone Pellet Therapy Work?
Hormone pellet therapy works by steadily replacing and rebalancing the missing hormones in the body. Hormone pellet therapy has been used since 1939. Other types of hormone replacement, include pills, patches, creams/gels, and synthetic injections.
Hormone pellet therapy has several advantages over these other methods. These benefits include:
- It has the same molecular structure as human hormones
- It lasts longer than other treatments, typically around three to five months
- It’s the most widely studied form of natural hormone therapy
- It provides a steady stream of hormones in your blood
- It provides individualized dosing
- It’s inserted under the skin
The type of hormone pellet therapy we provide is called BioTE® hormone pellet therapy. This type of hormone pellet therapy is meant to be hassle-free: BioTE® hormone pellet therapy provides outstanding results with minimal side effects. Pellet therapy is also the only modality that mimics the body’s normal diurnal and circadian rhythms.
