What Is BioTe Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Are you experiencing a decline in your mental focus and memory, struggling to lose weight, or having trouble falling asleep? BioTe bioidentical hormone replacement therapy could be a treatment option for you! BioTe can get your hormones back in balance, and restore your vitality, energy levels, and overall health.

How hormones affect our bodies

Balanced hormones (estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone) are part of what helps us stay in good health and prevent diseases, especially as we grow older. However, imbalances, menopause, and other aspects of aging can interfere with hormone balance. This leads to issues like decreased muscle strength, change in libido, fatigue, acne, weight gain, decreased appetite, and more.

When hormones change, it doesn’t just affect your physical health, but also your mental health. Changes in appetite, libido, changes in appearance, and increased tiredness can all cause shifts in your emotional state too.

How BioTe works

BioTe uses hormone pellet therapy to replicate the normal hormonal levels of your body and improve your general well-being. With the pellets, bioidentical estrogen and testosterone are released into the bloodstream and absorbed as needed. The dosage of the pellets is customized to your body’s needs, so you can be sure you’ll get the treatment that’s right for you.

  • First, you and your doctor will need to discuss whether BioTe will be right for your symptoms.
  • Next, you’ll get a comprehensive BioTe blood work analysis. This will determine your individual hormone levels.
  • Finally, the pellet implants are placed under your skin and will consistently release small doses of bioidentical hormones directly into the bloodstream (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) for up to 5 months.

Primary benefits of BioTe hormone replacement therapy

While hormone replacement therapy is a standard treatment for reducing the symptoms of menopause, it can also be used more broadly for treatment in men and women. Studies have shown that optimized hormones can significantly reduce the risk of serious health problems like osteoporosis, heart disease, and diabetes.

Patients who have received this type of hormone therapy have reported the following benefits.

  • Increased mental clarity
  • Higher energy levels and decreased fatigue levels
  • Better ability to lose weight
  • Reduced muscle and joint pain
  • Improved muscle tone and strength
  • Reduced hot flashes
  • Greater ease of getting to sleep and staying asleep
  • Increased libido and sexual stamina
  • Improved mood and overall well being
  • Improved overall quality of life

For women, balancing estrogen levels can help prevent symptoms such as loss of skin elasticity, bone shrinkage, moodiness, and cognitive decline, in addition to treating symptoms of menopause. Testosterone therapy can provide women with increased libido, improved mental clarity, and enhanced muscle tone and mass.
