Do you feel like no matter how well you eat, you can’t seem to shed those extra pounds? Has the energy to hit the gym disappeared? It’s quite possible that you are dealing with the effects of hormone imbalance.

You’re not alone. Hormone imbalance affects millions of men and women. Mood swings, loss of interest in sex and decreased energy are just some of the symptoms of a hormone imbalance.

Unfortunately, the medical community is more focused on “sick” care instead of “health” care. Your doctor may have told you that “you’re just getting older” and there’s “nothing to do.” Lucky for you, that’s not true.

Bio-identical hormone pellets with BioTE® may be your solution. A better version of yourself is 5 minutes away with this safe and effective therapy.

What is BioTE® Pellet Therapy?

BioTE® hormone pellet therapy is a form of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).

Bio-identical means that the pellets have the exact chemical structure as your body’s natural hormones. In contrast, synthetic hormones contain unnecessary chemicals and in some cases are made from horse urine (yes, you heard that right).

Bio-identical hormones are safe and natural. They are made from vegetables and 100% vegan.

BioTE® pellets are smaller than a grain of rice. Through a simple 5 minute procedure in the office, the pellets are inserted underneath the skin of the upper buttocks area. You won’t see them or feel them.

The BioTE® pellets are then slowly absorbed into your bloodstream over several months. This mimics the natural release of hormones that your body is accustomed to needing. You’ll start noticing the positive effects within 7-10 days.

Why is BioTE® Hormone Pellet Therapy the Best BHRT?

Unlike other forms of hormone replacement therapy, BioTE® pellet therapy is:

Convenient: instead of painful weekly injections or daily topical therapy, BioTE® pellet therapy is performed via a short office procedure and the effects last 3-5 months. Set it and forget it.

Consistent: Other forms of BHRT cause fluctuating hormone levels. You’re either too low or too high. BioTE® pellet therapy keeps your hormone levels right where you need them in an effective, consistent range.

Safe: BioTE® pellets are created with the highest standards using only natural substances.

Personalized: a proprietary BioTE® database allows us to personalize the dosage of your BioTE® pellet therapy. You’ll receive a dose that’s right for you. No more guessing.

BioTE® Pellet Therapy for Men

As a man ages, testosterone levels naturally decline leading to low T. Up to 40% of men experience a “male menopause” or “andropause”. Low T levels can lead to a number of symptoms.

Symptoms of Low T in Men

  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Low libido (low sexual desire)
  • ED (erectile dysfunction)
  • Brain “fog” (memory difficulty, trouble thinking of words)
  • Mood swings
  • Depression

Understanding Male Hormone Balance

Testosterone pellets can restore a man’s hormone balance and improve low T symptoms. Unfortunately, few healthcare providers understand proper hormone replacement therapy in men.

Some men are receiving exceedingly high doses of synthetic testosterone. They are often going to “Low T Centers” which are more similar to a strip mall store than a doctor’s office. Low T centers usually only offer synthetic testosterone injections and fail to address other aspects of hormone imbalance.

The more common scenario is the man being dismissed with “normal T levels.” Depending on the lab reference range, “normal” testosterone levels range from 250 to 1000 ng/dl. Such a wide range should raise suspicion as to what exactly is a “normal level.” Total testosterone levels also ignore how hormones are utilized in the body.

Testosterone is carried throughout the body via proteins (e.g. sex-hormone binding globulin). Unless the testosterone is “free” from these proteins, your body can’t utilize the testosterone. Many men have normal total testosterone levels, but have low free testosterone levels that are causing symptoms.

A single testosterone level also ignores the age-related decline in T levels that men experience. Maybe your total T level is currently 400 ng/dl so you are technically in the normal range. But what if 10 years ago your testosterone level were 700 ng/dl? Your body notices the declining levels, but your doctor might be ignoring them.

Instead of suffering with low T symptoms, find a provider with experience in BioTE® pellet therapy. Better yet, a board-certified urologist trained in the BioTE® method will treat your hormone imbalance while addressing any other men’s health needs (e.g. ED or BPH).

BioTe® Pellet Therapy for Women

Menopause in women is inevitable. However, living with the symptoms of hormone imbalance doesn’t have to be inevitable. BHRT with BioTE® pellet therapy for women is not only effective at relieving menopausal symptoms, it is also safe.

Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance in Women

The most common symptoms of hormone imbalance in women include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Weight gain
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Low energy
  • Low libido or interest in sex
  • Vaginal dryness and pain

These symptoms of hormone imbalance often begin in a woman’s 30s. Even if you’re still menstruating, you may still have hormone imbalance.

Understanding Female Hormone Balance

Unfortunately, there is a disproportionate amount of incorrect and fearful information about the “dangers” of hormone replacement in women. Women are left to suffer with hot flashes, weight gain and mood swings because they are being told by their doctors that hormones are “bad”.

BioTE® hormone pellet therapy with estradiol (an estrogen) safely restores hormonal levels to the pre-menopausal range while protecting against:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Dementia

Although estrogen levels play an important role in women, it is not the only hormone which is imbalanced. Testosterone is actually the dominant hormone produced by the ovaries. By the time a woman is 40 years old, her testosterone levels are 50% lower than when she was age 20. Low testosterone is the reason women in their mid-30s to 40s often notice unexplained weight gain and a declining interest in sex.

Don’t worry, responsible testosterone replacement in women won’t lead to an Adam’s apple or a deeper voice. BioTE® pellet therapy with testosterone will improve your energy levels, shrink your waistline, and renew your interest in the bedroom.
