BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE THERAPY – WHAT IS IT?
If you’ve been experiencing hormonal symptoms like weight gain, mood swings, brain fog, or a low sex drive, you might have a hormonal imbalance. That’s because your hormones control everything from your immune system to your appetite, digestion, mood, libido, and energy levels. As a result, you may feel tired, depressed, and grumpy. And then there are the memory issues and difficulty concentrating. Fortunately, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can revamp your hormones and give you your life back.
For this reason, we offer BioTE Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy – because BioTE is the world’s most significant technological breakthrough in hormone replacement therapy. But before we talk about BioTE, here’s everything you need to know about hormone replacement therapy:
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy 101
Let’s begin with standard hormone replacement therapy. With standard HRT, your doctor replaces your hormones with synthetic hormones derived from the urine of pregnant animals like horses. And your body will receive the hormones via pills, patches, or injections. As a result, Traditional hormone therapy is effective and will make you feel better. On the other hand, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy mimics the hormones already present in your body. That is to say; bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is far more effective at optimizing your hormone levels.
The BioTE method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) uses pellets that contain either bioidentical testosterone or estrogen. Then, we’ll insert the pellets beneath your skin. The pellets will release a continuous stream of bioidentical hormones for three to six months.
Are You a Candidate?
Now that you know about BioTE, are you wondering if you’re a candidate? If you’re having any of the following symptoms, chances are BioTE is a fantastic option for you:
- Weight Gain Are you frustrated by weight gain, or do you have trouble maintaining your weight? It might be your hormones since hormone imbalances can cause weight gain. But, you can return to a healthy weight with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. BioTe stops weight gain and helps you shed those stubborn pounds.
- Fatigue If you regularly experience fatigue, it can feel like you’re dragging through your day. When your hormone levels are out of balance, you’ll feel fatigued and have trouble falling and staying asleep. If you balance your hormones with BHRT, you’ll feel more energized during your day.
The Treatment Process
Your BioTE treatment begins with a complimentary consultation. Dr. Kat, our on-site physician, will consult with you, ask about your symptoms, and help you decide if BioTE is right for you.
If you’re a good fit for BioTE, she’ll then draw blood to measure your hormone levels. Next, she’ll calculate the correct dose of bioidentical pellets based on your current hormone levels. Her goal is to bring you to an optimal hormonal level and balance so you can feel as fantastic as possible.
Next, Dr. Kat will administer local anesthesia to ensure you’re comfortable. Then she’ll make a small incision and insert the bioidentical pellets under the skin on your hip.
After insertion, you should avoid exercise or bathing for at least three days. It’s essential to keep your bandages dry and clean.
Afterward: You may experience bleeding, redness, swelling, or bruising at the insertion point for up to two weeks. In approximately four to eight weeks, Dr. Kat will draw your blood to check your hormone levels. If she discovers your hormones aren’t at optimal levels, she’ll adjust your dose. From there, you’ll have new pellets inserted every three months if you’re female and six months if your male.
After your BHRT procedure, you’ll need to ice the area to reduce any swelling. In about a week, you can return to your typical activities. BHRT can return your body’s optimal hormonal balance, alleviate your symptoms, and make you feel like yourself again.

Female Hormonal Imbalance
If you’re female, the adverse effects of a hormone imbalance can be debilitating. But BioTE pellet therapy is scientifically-proven to make an enormous difference. So, let’s discuss the symptoms you’re having. That way, you can decide if BioTE is an option for you.
First, let’s take a look at the emotional symptoms you’re experiencing. For example, do you suffer from brain fog, a low mood, or feel anxious or depressed? If so, you likely have a hormonal imbalance. And if you’re going through menopause, a hormonal imbalance is expected. But, symptoms like these can arise from other health issues, so be sure to check with your doctor to eliminate the possibility of a cause that has nothing to do with your hormones.
The second is your physical symptoms. For instance, do you have thin or dry skin, low blood pressure, unstable blood sugar, thinning hair, acne, brown spots on your face, or excessive hair on your arms and face? If so, those are also signs of a hormonal imbalance.
Third, are your reproductive symptoms. Have you noticed any reproductive symptoms that could indicate a sex-hormone imbalance? Female reproductive hormone imbalance symptoms are vast and could include tender breasts, debilitating PMS, difficulty conceiving, miscarriages, uncomfortable or severe menstruation cramps, breast enlargement, discomfort, low sex drive, and intercourse and ovarian cysts.
Like your emotional symptoms, many other conditions could cause these symptoms other than a hormone imbalance, so you must visit your doctor to determine if your symptoms are, indeed, from hormonal issues.
Treatment for Female Hormonal Imbalance
By now, you’ve learned there are various ways to treat a female hormone imbalance. The BioTE method of restoring your hormonal balance uses BHRT and custom hormonal pellets. The pellets take minutes to insert, and your therapy will start to work in two-four weeks. You’ll get significant relief from the symptoms of a female hormone imbalance. And you’ll be able to resume your regular activities in no time. BioTE bioidentical Hormone pellets last three to six months. BHRT can help you feel fantastic at any age.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement for Men
If you’re male, your hormone levels are just as essential as your female counterparts. And Doctors have been giving Bioidentical Hormone Replacement to men for decades to alleviate aging symptoms. If the ravages of time are taking their toll, you may benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
However, hormone imbalances aren’t always because of aging. If you’ve suffered most of your life with hormonal imbalance symptoms, MHRT may help you feel like yourself for the first time. Male bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can significantly reduce the intensity of the symptoms from any reproductive disorders.
Research shows bioidentical hormone replacement therapy helps relieve the symptoms of a male hormone imbalance, including low libido and sexual performance, low mood, fatigue, anxiousness, weight gain, sleep issues, brain fog, and more.
When is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Beneficial for Men?
If you’re male, Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help you if your hormones are unbalanced. As you age, a hormone imbalance is common. But, hypogonadism can happen at any age.
Like the pellets for women, BioTE pellets for men contain custom-compounded Bioidentical hormones. If you choose a certified BioTE provider, like Allurant Medical Spa, you can be sure they’ll use high-quality and reliable outsourcing facilities.
