BioTe Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
BioTe bioidentical hormone replacement is a state-of-the-art treatment for hormonal imbalance. It is also known as pellet therapy, since BioTe supplements the body’s hormones through pellet insertion beneath the skin. BioTe’s natural plant-based hormones are identical to the body’s hormones. Harpe Laser & Wellness provides medical-grade pellet therapy using BioTe bioidentical hormone replacement in Hendersonville.
What Is BioTe Bioidentical Hormone Replacement?
The body’s hormone levels must be balanced at all times for the body to function properly. However, as people grow older, hormone production naturally declines. Various factors such as nutrition, lifestyle, and health conditions can also prevent the body from producing sufficient hormones.
BioTe bioidentical hormone replacement is a medical therapy that restores the hormonal balance in the body, addressing the symptoms of hormone imbalance. BioTe stands for Bioidentical Testosterone and Estrogen. It comes in the form of pellets that contain natural hormones. These pellets supplement specific hormones in order to achieve balanced hormone levels in the body.
How Does BioTe Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Work?
The BioTe medical pellets are inserted under the skin in areas like the buttocks or hip. The body gradually dissolves the pellets and absorbs the hormones to help maintain hormonal balance. The rate of absorption is controlled so that the body will never have too little or too much of a specific hormone.
Although a pellet may in some cases contain only one type of hormone, most of the time, the BioTe pellet is personalized to supplement multiple hormones in specific amounts. This is because each patient needs different amounts of certain hormones to maintain the hormonal balance in their bodies.
Male Hormonal Imbalance
Male hormonal imbalances can be categorized into 4 types: andropause, adrenal fatigue, hypothyroidism, and hyperthyroidism. Andropause is the male version of menopause. Adrenal fatigue is due to the decreased production of stress hormones. Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland decreases its activity, while hyperthyroidism is an increase in thyroid activity.
Causes of Male Hormonal Imbalance
Hormonal imbalance in men can be caused by several factors. One is aging, which directly affects the growth hormones in men. Other causes of male hormonal imbalances include level of physical activity, diet, certain medical conditions, genetics, acquired injuries, medications and supplements, and stress.
Symptoms of Male Hormonal Imbalance
There are many symptoms of hormonal imbalance in men. These include cognitive decline and memory loss, depression, low sex drive, and erectile dysfunction. Aside from these, men may experience fatigue, hair loss, loss of muscle mass, and sudden weight gain.
Female Hormonal Imbalance
Aside from the types of hormonal imbalance that are common to both men and women, there are types of hormonal imbalance that only women experience. One is the result of polycystic ovary syndrome, which leads to infertility in women during their reproductive age. Another type of female hormonal imbalance is the result of menopause.
Causes of Female Hormonal Imbalance
Like male hormonal imbalances, female hormonal imbalances can also be the result of factors like diet, injury, medications and supplements, stress, certain medical conditions, genetics, and physical activity level.
Female hormonal imbalances can also occur as a result of natural life transitions during the aging process. Starting menstruation, becoming pregnant, and going through menopause can all result in hormone imbalances.
SYMPTOMS OF FEMALE HORMONAL IMBALANCE
There are many symptoms of female hormonal imbalances. Some of these symptoms include irregular menstrual cycle, infertility, low sex drive, abdominal pain or back pain during one’s period, and constipation or diarrhea. In addition, women can experience symptoms like mood swings, insomnia, skin rashes, excessive hair growth, brittle bones, and unexplained weight loss or gain.
During your consultation, you will describe your symptoms and bring up any potential causes. We will discuss various lifestyle factors that might be contributing to a hormonal imbalance, and we will evaluate your complete medical history.
We will conduct testing to identify your hormone levels. This will help us assess which hormones are imbalanced so that we can recommend a therapy plan that restores the hormonal balance in your body.
We will customize your BioTe medical pellets based on your needs. We will discuss the process and the insertion procedure. Feel free to ask questions anytime, and we will make sure to address them as thoroughly as possible to help you make a decision regarding treatment.
The Treatment Session
The BioTe treatment session can last around 5 minutes. Anesthesia will be administered for the patient’s comfort. The pellets are inserted under the skin at the buttocks or hip area. This allows optimal absorption of the hormone supplements into the bloodstream.
After Your BioTe Treatment Session
The patient can go home after the treatment. No recovery period will be necessary, but the patient will need to avoid strenuous exercise and immersion in water for long periods. Aftercare instructions will be provided, along with the schedule for treatment sessions.
How Much Does a BioTe Treatment Cost?
The cost of BioTe bioidentical hormone replacement treatment will depend on the price of the personalized BioTe pellets. The number of pellets needed for the treatment plan can also affect the overall cost of the BioTe treatment.
