Functional medicine can be used to address dozens of health issues. Far too often, patients suffering from certain conditions who turn to conventional care are disappointed with the lack of progress or overall understanding of their particular situation. Our medical practitioner at MWA is prepared to provide a level of treatment and care you will not be able to find anywhere else.
As part of our endocrine system, hormones help regulate metabolism, growth, development, sexual function, sleep, mood and more. Common hormones such as thyroid, estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, and cortisol fluctuate daily and the change becomes more severe as we age. Because of that fluctuation, hormone imbalances can result in too much or too little of a certain hormone in the blood stream. There are many symptoms that can result from hormone imbalance. By utilizing functional medicine to identify the causes of hormone imbalance, we can help eliminate common root causes like stress, poor sleep, and overexposure to toxins. We perform thorough blood testing to accurately assess your hormone levels and determine which of those root causes could be affecting them.
What are Bio-Identical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones match the molecular structure of the hormones found naturally in our bodies. They are made from a plant chemical extracted from yams and soy. Often referred to as “natural hormone therapy,” bioidentical hormones act the same as naturally produced hormones in the body. Because of this, your body can’t even tell the difference between bioidentical hormones and the hormones found in your body — hence its name “bioidentical hormones.”
The good news is,
hormone replacement therapy can help replenish our hormones, restoring
natural levels of these important chemicals to relieve symptoms and support our bodies’
normal functions. And for many people considering HRT, BioTE ® hormone replacement therapy
is a great treatment option. Here’s how it could help you.
What is BioTE?
BioTE is a hormone replacement treatment that uses pellets, tiny cylindrical-shaped
supplements that are inserted under your skin. The pellets release precise doses of hormones
over time, so your body receives a steady stream of hormones for optimal function. The time-
release aspect of BioTE pellets means hormones are delivered and distributed in a manner
similar to the way your body distributes the hormones it produces naturally, which means
there’s a far lower risk of side effects.
BioTE uses bioidentical hormones, synthetic hormones that have the same chemical structures
as naturally produced hormones. Bioidentical hormones are processed by your body and
eliminated in the same way as natural hormones for better effects and fewer risks. The tiny
implant is inserted under your skin and replaced every three to six months, depending on your
specific needs. Implant placement is performed right in the office in just a few minutes using a
local anesthetic. Both estrogen and testosterone implants are available.
That's how BioTE works; now here are five reasons why you should consider it for your
Five reasons to choose BioTE for HRT
1. You’re having symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances
Common symptoms of estrogen and testosterone imbalance include loss of libido, moodiness,
irritability, depression, problems with memory and concentration, thinning hair, loss of muscle
mass, weight gain (especially in the belly area), and fatigue. Estrogen decline is also associated
with night sweats, hot flashes, facial hair growth, painful intercourse, vaginal dryness and an
increased risk of urinary incontinence. Low levels of testosterone can also cause erectile
dysfunction, including problems getting and maintaining an erection.
2. You want a natural therapy
As noted, BioTE uses bioidentical hormones, which are more like natural hormones. And unlike
other hormone replacement products, such as rings, gels, patches, creams, gels and pills, BioTE
pellets don’t use any synthetic or artificial fillers, and they dissolve completely over time.
3. You don’t want to deal with messy gels or creams or remember to take pills
Because the BioTE HRT system uses pellets that are implanted under your skin, hormone
release and delivery happens automatically, without any intervention on your part. All you need
to do is remember to have the pellets replaced every few months, according to a schedule your
doctor will establish for you, based on your specific needs, symptoms and medical history.
4. You want to minimize your risk of side effects
HRT can be a boon to lots of women and men suffering from all sorts of symptoms associated
with a decrease in hormones, but there are some risks, depending on the type of therapy you
select. BioTE minimizes side effects in two important ways: First, because it uses bioidentical
hormones, and second, because it releases hormones slowly, over time — just the way your
body releases natural hormones. That means you don’t have to worry about the “peaks and
valleys” associated with pills and some other therapies. And unlike creams or gels, the
hormones are delivered right to your bloodstream, so they can effectively address a whole
array of symptoms.
5. You've tried — and rejected — other hormone replacement products
Maybe you've tried HRT in the past, and it just hasn't worked. Or maybe you wound up
experiencing side effects as a result of your therapy. Because of the way BioTE works, many
people who've had unpleasant experiences with HRT in the past find they get the results they
want with BioTE pellets.
If you're dealing with symptoms associated with hormonal decline, BioTE hormone therapy
could be a great option for helping you feel better. To learn more about BioTE therapy at
