Hormone Replacement Therapy (BioTE)
The hormones in your body control many of your basic bodily functions, including digestion, immune function, mood, and even libido! But hormones can easily become unbalanced, when a woman enters peri-menopause or in menopause, resulting in a negative impact on your overall health and well-being. No matter what may be causing your imbalance, hormone replacement therapy helps ease any uncomfortable symptoms you are experiencing. There are many different types of hormone therapy treatments, but here at VSPOT, we choose to use a bioidentical therapy, BioTE, as it allows us to specifically tailor the hormone dose to fit every woman’s unique needs, rather than use a one size fits all synthetic solution.
BioTE® Therapy offers a method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) that uses pellets to replace the hormones lost in an imbalance. While traditional hormone replacement therapy uses synthetic hormones - BHRT hormones are naturally derived from plant estrogens. Pellet therapy is implanted under the skin in the fatty tissue, using pellets that are smaller than a grain of rice. Because the pellet is implanted, it allows for small, physiologic doses of hormones to be released consistently throughout the day, whereas traditional oral and transdermal therapies put your hormones on a roller coaster. While traditional methods can be helpful, they do not give the benefit of balanced hormones 24 hours a day, which can result in more mood and energy fluctuations for the patient.
Since BioTE is bioidentical, each patient’s dosage is custom-compounded to help balance the hormones. This relieves any uncomfortable symptoms you have been struggling with, and helps restore your health and well-being to enjoy all that life has to offer. Patients can expect to experience full hormone optimization within six months, although some patients start to feel the benefits in a little as two to four weeks. How fast a patient experiences the benefits of hormone therapy is dependent on their body and lifestyle choices.
BHRT is most commonly used hormone therapy technique to help women in perimenopause or menopause, but can also benefit anyone suffering from a hormone imbalance. Listed below are the top symptoms of struggling from a hormonal imbalance:
