5 Reasons to Consider BioTE® Pellet Therapy

Your hormones are the vital chemical messengers in your body that coordinate important functions, such as fertility, metabolism, and growth. If your hormonal balance is thrown off, even by a little, it can significantly impact your entire body.

A hormonal imbalance can develop for several reasons, but for many women, it’s due to menopause. When you reach menopause, you no longer menstruate and can’t become pregnant through natural methods. Most women reach menopause between 45 and 55 years of age, but it can occur earlier or later in life.

Menopause can cause numerous symptoms in the years leading up to and following your last period. These symptoms are the result of changes in your estrogen levels and often include:

At Healthcare for Women, Dr. Lyndon Taylor offers BioTE® Hormone Pellet Therapy to correct hormonal imbalance. This treatment contains bio-identical hormones that closely resemble the naturally occurring hormones in the human body.

Here are five reasons to consider adding BioTE therapy to restore your hormonal balance.

BioTE works with the natural chemistry of your body

Unlike synthetic hormones, BioTE pellet therapy uses hormones found in nature that are plant-derived. Because BioTE so closely resembles the molecular structure of your naturally occurring hormones, your body can quickly and easily absorb them for safe and consistent relief from hormonal imbalance.

BioTE hormone therapy is designed specifically for you

If Dr. Taylor suspects a hormone imbalance, he performs a variety of screenings to determine your specific hormone imbalances. These tests might include:

Based on this comprehensive assessment, Dr. Taylor identifies if you’re a good candidate and creates a personalized plan to optimize your hormone therapy with BioTE.

BioTE has fewer side effects than traditional hormone therapies

Conventional synthetic or animal-derived hormones can increase your risk of negative side effects, such as blood clots, stroke, breast cancer, and dementia.

BioTE more closely mimics the hormones within your body because it comes from plant sources. By treating hormone imbalance with a bio-identical replacement, there are fewer negative interactions within your system as your body absorbs the optimal amount of hormones needed to achieve balance.

Bio-identical hormone therapy will help you live a healthier and happier life.

BioTE eliminates the hormonal imbalance rollercoaster ride

Instead of daily doses of hormone pills or creams, BioTE implants release hormones around the clock and increase when your cardiac output increases. The more you exercise the more your hormones work for you.

During your office visit, Dr. Taylor places pellets beneath the surface of your skin in a simple outpatient procedure. Over three to six months, your body naturally absorbs your bio-identical hormone therapy consistently throughout the day, which creates even hormone levels.

To maintain optimal balance, Dr. Taylor replaces your hormone pellets three to four times each year.

BioTE estrogen pellets restore your hormonal balance fast

Hormonal imbalances don't happen overnight, so correcting them can take time. With BioTE, however, many women experience fewer symptoms within two to four weeks after Dr. Taylor inserts their pellets.

Throughout the BioTE hormone therapy process, Dr. Taylor customizes your treatment to achieve optimal hormonal balance as quickly as possible.
