Bioidentical Hormone Optimization
What are the symptoms of a potential hormone imbalance?
Do you feel tired all the time no matter the amount of sleep you get? Are you unable to remember why you just went into the next room? Are you eating right and exercising, but still gaining weight around your belly? Is your sex drive or ability to reach completion, not what it used to be? Then you might have an imbalance in your hormones. These symptoms can be improved with hormone optimization.
What is the difference between synthetic HRT and bioidentical hormones?
Bioidentical hormones differ from synthetic hormones, in that they are made from plant-based estrogen and testosterone and are chemically identical to naturally produced hormones from the human body. Because of this, the body recognizes the hormone and instinctively know what to do with them. Reducing the need to convert the hormone into a usable form, which is what is needed with synthetic hormones, making them safer than synthetic hormones and producing fewer harmful side effects. BioTe's hormone optimization utilizes pellet therapy.
Why use hormone replacements?
The BioTE method of pellet therapy is a personalized bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) option available to men and women aged 25 and above.
