Hormone depletion is a natural part of aging. It happens most notably during menopause. By the time that a woman starts menopause, she has just a fraction of the hormones that she made as a teenager and young adult. When the hormones start to decrease, it can have a negative effect on every part of the body. If hormones are depleted without being replaced, a woman will often find herself in a state of severe hormone imbalance.
When a woman has a hormone imbalance, she will often experience problems like hot flashes, night sweats, depression, mood swings, an inability to get restful sleep, short-term memory loss, headaches, weight gain, and irritability along with many other possible issues.
BioTE is a unique hormone therapy that includes only natural hormones derived from plants. Most hormone replacements are either derived from animals or are created in a laboratory. The body isn't always able to easily process these types of hormones because they can be very different from what it makes naturally. The plant-derived hormones in BioTE are very well tolerated because they are virtually identical to the body's natural hormones in every way.
The hormone replacements are made into very small pellets. The pellets are implanted in the fat of the upper arm in most cases. The process takes only a couple of minutes and patients rarely experience pain. Once the hormone replacement pellets are in place, they will regularly provide the body with the hormones that it needs to get and stay healthy. No other action needs to be taken to get the hormones into the body. Many patients experience an immediate improvement in the way they feel.
Generally, the patient needs to return for implantation of new BioTE pellets about every 3 or 4 months. Sticking to a regular schedule for hormone replacement means that women can feel great again with no interruptions.
