How Men and Women Can Benefit from Bio-identical Hormone Therapy

Hormone imbalance is a common discussion, with common symptoms… but that doesn’t mean that the solution is one size fits all. When it comes to balancing hormones it’s best for women to find a treatment that is tailored to meet each woman’s individual needs. Bio-identical hormones are, molecule-by-molecule, exactly the same as the hormones already present in the human body.

Hormones play an integral part in our health, from keeping out joints limber to helping us process thoughts clearly. They help us recover quickly from colds and flu, keep our sex drive in gear, our skin wrinkle-free and our memory in check. As we age hormone levels can decline, causing an imbalance that affects everything from sleep patterns, to moods, energy levels, weight, memory and more.

The good news is it’s possible to delay (and in some cases even reverse) these symptoms with bio-identical hormone therapy, which replenishes the hormones that your body needs to function. This approach helps put an end to the suffering caused by hormone imbalance. Whether it be due to menopause, peri-menopause or andropause (the male menopause). There is an effective solution.

Here’s how it works:

Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy — which produce “roller coaster” hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient — BioTE® Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy uses hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels. Patients have found that bio-identical hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is extremely effective. Implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones that provide optimal therapy.

This is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day for up to three to five months without any “roller coaster” effect.

Since the key to successful treatment is dosing, proper hormone levels are determined by the BioTE® comprehensive blood work analysis. Unique dosing is generated for each individual patient, so dosing is customized for what your body needs. Pellets deliver pure, bio-identical hormones directly into the bloodstream 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for up to 5 months. Pills, patches, creams and shots cannot provide a steady delivery of hormones 24/7. Pellets provide a constant supply of hormones that your body recognizes as its own, which significantly reduces the chance of adverse side effects.

Balanced hormones are necessary for good health and disease prevention for women and men as we age.So, if you’re a woman suffering from hormone imbalance symptoms looking to put an end to energy loss, hot flashes, night sweats, memory loss, mood swings, weight gain, and low libido (sex drive), or  a man who wants to get a grip on weight gain, lost libido, fatigue, stress, energy, muscle mass, and body fat, give us a call.
