Hormone Imbalance and What To Do About It
As we age, our bodies go through a myriad of changes— loss of muscle mass, decreased bone density, high cholesterol, hot flashes, lower sex drive, increased body fat, mood changes, and so on! Did you know that all of these changes have to do with your hormone levels? Both men and women produce varying quantities of testosterone and estrogen in their bodies; men produce more testosterone than women, and women produce more estrogen than men, but both hormones serve important purposes for both men and women. Testosterone is a very important hormone that regulates mood, weight, bones mass, muscle mass, and sex drive, among other functions. Over time, testosterone levels decrease, leading to those less-than-desirable effects mentioned above.
Thank God (and science) there’s an easy way to reverse those effects! Hormone therapy gradually introduces additional testosterone to restore balance to your system. We achieve this through the BioTe pellet method, where a small pellet is inserted underneath the skin, and the testosterone gradually releases into the system when the body requires it. It can even be done with as few as two pellet insertions per year!
So what are the benefits? They include physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. It can relieve symptoms such as stress, foggy thinking, weight gain, sleep disturbances, low sex drive, and other symptoms (see below for full list of potential benefits.) Not only that, but there are virtually zero side effects!
Some patients start to feel the benefits of hormone therapy in as little as four weeks, but full hormone optimization can take up to six months depending on the individual’s needs. If you’re looking to revitalize your health and wellbeing, increase your energy and stamina, and feel better in your everyday life, this is the solution for you.
