Feeling stressed? Cranky? Chronically tired? Like your brain is fogged? It could be that your hormones are out of balance. Just as aging affects our appearance, it also affects hormone levels in both men and women. The result is often imbalance that can produce a range of symptoms beyond leaving us with low sex drive. BioTE Medical bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) helps naturally rebalance hormones.
Your Hormones May be Out of Balance If . . .
Hormones regulate many complex processes within the body, so it’s no surprise that an imbalance can cause a variety of symptoms. This is not only frustrating, some of these symptoms can be truly debilitating. In addition to decreased sex drive, both men and women may experience:
- Weight gain (or loss)
Women may also experience:
- Cold feet and hands
- Inability to sleep
- Night sweats or hot flashes
- Painful intercourse
Men may also experience:
- Erectile dysfunction (ED)
- Foggy thinking or reduced mental capacity
- Loss of muscle mass or bone mass
- Mood swings
What Is BioTE Medical Therapy?
Beauty may be only skin deep, as the saying goes, but we all want to look our best. And that means we have to feel our best. Over time, though, women and men’s hormone levels sometimes are significantly diminished. Restoring the reduced hormone levels can help restore certain internal bodily functions. In turn, that relieves unwanted symptoms. In the words of BioTE’s manufacturer, you can “age healthier, live happier.” Who doesn’t want that?
When we talk about “bio-identical” hormone replacement therapy, we are talking about compounds which are formulated to exactly match your body’s own hormone in terms of chemical make-up and molecular structure. BioTE Medical is made from natural, plant-based ingredients. The compound is produced in the form of a pellet, which is inserted subcutaneously.
How Does It Work?
Although there are other types of BRHT on the market, they are administered orally or in a topical cream. Patients often complain that the effects fluctuate noticeably, leading to a less-than-optimal experience. Because BioTE therapy uses tiny pellets inserted under the skin, the hormone is delivered consistently over time. You don’t notice the “experience,” just the improvements in your health and well-being.
The pellets are custom-compounded for each patient, based on your unique physiology. They are inserted under the skin in the gluteal area, in a procedure that is simple and quick. Once inserted, the pellets gradually release the hormone as your body needs it. You will receive two to four insertions per year, depending on your body’s requirements.
Most patients start to feel the beneficial effects with a week or two. However, it can take up to six months to achieve optimal hormone balance. A little patience seems warranted, when you consider that it has taken years for your hormones to lose their balance.
With more than 750,000 insertions performed to date, BioTE Medical therapy has already effectively helped optimize hormones for many men and women.
Take action to regain your hormone balance
Could BioTE pellet therapy help you? There is one easy way to find out. Schedule a private consultation with Dr. Robert Kessler. During your meeting, Dr. Kessler will discuss your personal concerns, test your present hormone levels, and perform a comprehensive blood work panel to determine if you are a good candidate. If you are a good candidate, he will schedule a short follow-up visit, when you can return for your first pellet insertion.
We all want to age healthier and live happier. Why put that off, when BioTE Medical could help boost your quality of life by balancing your hormones?
