BoiTE Hormone Therapy
BioTE for Women
Hormone levels can start to decline in women in their 20’s and 30’s. In studies, when compared to conventional hormone replacement therapy, pellets have been shown to be extremely effective for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, improved sex drive, sexual response and performance, relief of depression, anxiety, irritability, mood swings, and many others. Pellet implants have been used to treat migraine and menstrual headaches. It also helps with vaginal dryness, incontinence, urinary urgency and frequency, to name a few. Moreover, hundreds of studies show natural testosterone to be HIGHLY PREVENTATIVE against breast cancer, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s dementia and heart disease to name a few.
Q & A
I get horrible headaches - will they help me?
Yes! We have had great success, especially with women who have menstrual migraines, and new migraines that appear after age 35.
Do I need other medications?
If you still have a uterus, you will need to be on natural progesterone as well.
Why do I need estrogen?
Estrogen is the most important hormone for a woman. It protects her against heart attack, stroke, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer's. It also keeps us looking young and healthy.
Why do I need testosterone?
Testosterone is the third female hormone and is as essential as estrogen and progesterone. We need this hormone to keep our thought processes quick and our libido healthy. It improves bone density, muscle mass, strength, and prevents some types of depression. It is also the source of energy and solid sleep!
Will I grow unwanted hair from testosterone?
There is less chance of excess hair growth with natural testosterone than with synthetic hormones. Facial hair will grow with testosterone pellets, but normally no more than when you were in your thirties.
BioTE for Men
Testosterone levels begin to decline in men beginning in their early 30’s. Symptoms of testosterone deficiency in men include fatigue, lack of mental acuity, loss of libido, and difficulty achieving, or sustaining an erection. It is never too late to benefit from hormone therapy. Pellet Therapy achieves the sustained levels of testosterone that would be produced by normally functioning testicles. This form of therapy is the only kind that produces and sustains optimal levels of hormone that men need. Because the testosterone used is totally natural, Pellet Therapy is ideal for men wanting the benefits of a natural hormone, without the drawbacks of a synthetic. Moreover, many studies show “optimal” testosterone levels, over 800, in men have preventative effects for many disease states such as: cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease, prostate cancer, osteoporosis, and more.
Typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy produce “roller coaster” blood levels of testosterone, which can result in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient. Roller coaster levels of hormones do not have the same long term benefits as pellets which produce steady state hormone in the bloodstream.
Q & A
How do I take testosterone pellets and not convert them to Dihydrotestosterone and estrone?
Your blood levels of estrone and DHT are checked after treatment to see if they are elevated. Some men still convert to these metabolites even on testosterone pellets. If they are converting, we troubleshoot with natural supplements such as DIM and Saw Palmetto, or an aromatase inhibitor prescription.
What if I have prostate enlargement already?
Testosterone pellets will make it better, if you do not convert it to DHT; we will treat that if it happens.
Will my testicles shrink while I take the testosterone pellets?
Yes, they will. Testicles are suppressed by taking any kind of testosterone and they will not make as much testosterone while the pellets are working. This is not permanent and the testicle retains its ability to produce testosterone.
Studies have shown, balanced hormones are necessary for good health and disease prevention for women and men as we age. BioTE® optimizes hormone levels with tiny pellets just under the skin. Hormone pellets release bio-identical estrogen and testosterone and are absorbed into the body as needed.
General Q & A
How often will I need pellets?
For women: usually every 3-4 months. For men: usually every 4-5 months.
Why are pellets better than creams, patches, shots or pills?
Pellets are pure hormone that is not metabolized into byproducts by going through the liver, stomach, or skin. This delivery system allows your body to use the right amount of hormone from the pellet as the blood flow surrounding the pellets picks up what is needed.
Where do the pellets go?
Because they are pure hormone without fillers or synthetic ingredients, the pellets completely dissolve.
How long will it take for my body to get back to lean normal?
That depends on how much you exercise and work out with weights, as well as your age. Testosterone decreases fat and increases muscle and lean body mass. Testosterone also increases your natural growth hormone and therefore will improve your stamina to work out and increase muscle mass.
I have no libido - what will this do for that, if anything?
Good hormone balance will greatly improve your libido. The addition of testosterone in pellet form will change everything for the better!
