Hormone Balance (BioTE) Q & A
Hormone levels decrease naturally over time, with a marked decrease in estrogen around the time of menopause. As a person ages, the natural hormones decline until the body has just a small percentage of the same hormones that the body made during the younger years. This can have an impact on the whole body, causing gradual deterioration of the body's organs. Over time, the body will not function as well as it could due to lack of hormones. Testosterone, however, begins to fall after our twenties.
There are a number of unpleasant symptoms connected with hormone imbalance, including depression, mood swings, exhaustion, insomnia, decreased libido, memory loss, a feeling of “mental fog,” weight gain, hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, and many others.
bioTE is different than other types of hormone therapy because it uses natural hormone replacements derived from plants. Other hormone replacements are synthetic, which means that the body may not be able to process them comfortably or easily. With bioTE hormones, the body will be able to accept the hormones because they so closely replicate the body’s own natural hormones without using synthetics.
The bioTE hormone replacements are fashioned into tiny pellets, which are inserted into the body in a discreet location. It takes just a few minutes to complete the pellet insertion, and most people have no pain or only mild discomfort. The pellets will deliver steady doses of the all natural hormones into the body. This process generally needs to be repeated every 4-6 months in women. Many women notice an improvement in the way that they feel almost immediately, and they may also notice that they look more youthful overall thanks to the positive impact the natural hormones can have on the skin.
