What is BioTe bioidentical hormone therapy?
BioTe® bioidentical hormone therapy is a treatment for aging women that restores a hormonal balance within your body. Throughout your life, you slowly lose the hormones that keep you vivacious. If you’re a woman, you don’t produce as much estrogen and progesterone as you did at a younger age.
With BioTe bioidentical hormone therapy, you can replace these hormones with slow-release natural hormones in the form of a pellet that your physician, Dr. Bhanot, places under the skin on your buttock. You won’t notice a difference immediately, but you start to see changes in your well-being after about four weeks with the pellet under your skin.
What does BioTe bioidentical hormone therapy treat?
Hormone imbalances cause more havoc in your body than you might realize. During menopause, a midlife stage of womanhood that happens when your ovaries stop producing estrogen and progesterone entirely, you might notice symptoms like hot flashes, memory decline, vaginal dryness, and trouble sleeping. Hormone therapy can treat all of these symptoms and more.
Additionally, research shows that BioTe bioidentical hormone therapy may also reduce symptoms of:
• Alzheimer’s disease
• Heart disease
• Thyroid conditions
• Parkinson’s disease
• Metabolic syndrome
At a consultation, Dr. Bhanot and her team reviews the possible benefits of using BioTe bioidentical hormone therapy to restore the hormones in your changing body.
How does BioTe bioidentical hormone therapy differ from synthetic hormone therapy?
When you use BioTe bioidentical hormone therapy instead of synthetic hormone therapy, you can be sure of exactly what’s in your pellets. The hormones in each pellet are derived from plant hormones that identically match those in your body. On the other hand, synthetic hormones are produced in a lab and not chemically identical to your natural hormones.
Since they’re not exactly the same, synthetic hormones aren’t very predictable in your body and can lead to new symptoms and side effects. This isn’t the case with BioTe bioidentical hormones. You and Dr. Bhanot know precisely what to expect, and they’re almost always effective in making you feel better.
