TYPES OF HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPIES WE OFFER
BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE PELLET THERAPY
Bio-Te Pellet Therapy optimizes hormone levels with tiny pellets inserted just under the skin. These hormone pellets release all-natural bio-identical estrogen and testosterone and are absorbed consistently into the body as needed. It’s amazing on how something so small can make such a big difference.
TOPICAL HORMONE CREAMS
The cream is applied to the arms, abdomen or shoulder, daily. Absorption of the cream can vary from person to person.
The testosterone injection is administered weekly. Injections can be given at your doctors office or at home.
HORMONE SKIN PATCHES
Skin patches are easy to use, but can cause allergic skin reactions and can peel off due to sweating.
BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY(BHRT)
BHRT uses bio-identical hormones, which are molecularly identical to the hormones that are produced in the human body. These hormones are derived from natural sources like yam or soybean and are much different from synthetic (man-made) hormones. They are natural to the human body and therefore are metabolized by natural metabolic pathways. Synthetic hormones, on the other hand, produce unnatural metabolites which can cause significant side-effects.
Low levels of estrogen cause hot flashes and night sweats which are the most common symptoms of menopause.
Low estrogen levels also lead to:
- Loss of bone strength and development of osteoporosis
- Vaginal dryness
- Hair loss
Progesterone has an important role in balancing the effect of estrogen on different tissues in women.
Low levels of progesterone can cause:
- PMS and anxiety
- Heavy or irregular menstrual bleeding
- Constipation and bloating
- Increased risk of breast, uterine and ovarian cancer
Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone, but it is also very important in females for normal sexual development and for maintaining sexual desire along with healthy skin, muscle and bone. Unrecognized testosterone deficiency can be the reason for suboptimal relief of menopausal symptoms with hormone replacement therapy.
Normal testosterone levels in men are needed for maintaining healthy libido (sex drive), muscle mass and energy.
Low levels can cause:
- Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
- Muscle Weakness
- Decreased Mental Clarity
- Memory Problems
