When practicing good health routines and taking care of our wellbeing we often focus on our diet and exercise, try to get a good night’s sleep, as well as limiting excessive consumption of processed foods and alcohol. You might be the epitome of a health conscientious person, and ensure you follow all these guidelines, yet you may feel like your body is not operating at its best. Unbeknownst to many, your hormones may be preventing you from looking and feeling your best. Every part of your body takes direction from your endocrine system; therefore, if there are hormones lacking in your system, it can show up in a myriad of ways throughout your body. This is why your endocrine system is so important to your overall well-being, and demands attention!
For most women, menopause occurs in their late 40s and comes with noticeable changes in the body. When menopause hits, the levels of estrogen and progesterone in a woman can become imbalanced. These hormones are most notably associated with a woman’s reproductive system and the release of eggs and the preparation of the womb for pregnancy. When these two hormones become imbalanced, women can experience several uncomfortable symptoms such as hot flashes, sweating, and troubles sleeping.
As men approach middle-age, their testosterone levels begin to decline. However, it is also possible for men who are younger than middle-aged to experience low levels of testosterone, namely due to a dysfunction in the testicles. When men live with lower levels of testosterone (“T”) than is ideal, they may experience a decreased sex drive, difficulties building and maintaining muscle mass as well as lower counts of red blood cells. For many men, these changes caused by hormonal imbalances bring about unwelcome changes to their overall health and attitude.
BioTE Pellet Therapy:
For both men and women experiencing hormonal imbalances, BioTE may be a great option. With regards to Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) the BioTE method of pellet therapy is the preferred choice amongst physicians. With this replacement therapy system, patients receive a subcutaneous pellet insertion (often as few as two per year) which will slowly deliver the needed hormones throughout the body. With BioTE Pellet Therapy patients can feel happier, age healthier and relieve the unwanted symptoms associated with hormone imbalances.
