The Origins of bioTE Hormone Therapy

The Origins of bioTE Hormone Therapy

Bio-Identical Hormone Pellet Therapy for Men

Men begin losing testosterone at the rate of 1-3% per year beginning at age 30. Current medical research now defines a male equivalent to menopause as Andropause. Because the testosterone used is totally natural, it is ideal for men wanting the benefits of a bio-identical hormone, without the drawbacks of a synthetic.

Symptoms of testosterone deficiency in men include fatigue, lack of mental acuity, loss of libido, and difficulty achieving, or sustaining erection.

Why Bio-identical Hormone therapy for men? Hormonal needs for men have received national attention, but with marginal treatment options available. Hormonal treatments for men can be expensive, require daily consumption, and in many cases, need to be carefully timed with their partner’s needs for normal sexual activities and pleasure.

Bio-identical hormone therapy is the only method of testosterone therapy that gives sustained and consistent testosterone levels throughout the day, for 4 to 6 months, without any “roller coaster” blood levels of testosterone, which can result in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient.

Bio-Identical Hormone Pellet Therapy for Women

Estrogen is a woman’s most important hormone. Without hormone replacement therapy, the loss of estrogen puts her at increased risk for premature ovary failure, osteoporosis, heart disease, colon cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, tooth loss, impaired vision, Parkinson’s disease and diabetes. The longer a woman is without the protection of her own estrogen, the greater the risk for serious health consequences of these conditions.

There are estrogen receptors in a variety of organs throughout the body and brain. That’s why hormonal imbalance produces different symptoms such as loss of skin elasticity, bone shrinkage, mood and cognitive decline. On the other hand, when estrogen levels rise as they do in the first week of menses, their overall effect is to increase the amount of serotonin available in the spaces between the brain’s nerve cells. That improves mood. Within the brain, estrogen may in fact act as a natural antidepressant and mood stabilizer. It is therefore essential that a woman suffering from premature ovary failure or surgical menopause receive treatment from a HRT physician who understands the many ramifications of the disease and is willing and able to meet her endocrine and emotional needs.

Testosterone hormone therapy gives a woman her mental clarity, libido and muscle tone and mass. When this hormone is at low levels, women often complain of mental confusion, weight gain and poor muscle growth even with regular exercise.

The effect of hormone deficiency on the brain, muscle, bone, heart and metabolism can be significant without hormone replacement therapy for women and dangerous to long term health. The brain needs normal amounts of testosterone in balance with estrogen to produce serotonin, which supports emotional balance. When lacking in these hormones, a woman will experience emotional instability that often results in increased anxiety, irritability, sleep disturbances, anger, sadness and depression.
