Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Do you suffer from:

Weight gain?

Chronic fatigue?

Hot flashes?


Sleep problems?

Sexual dysfunction?

Menopause changes?

Polycystic Ovary Disease?



Your symptoms may be a result of hormone deficiencies. Our Bio Identical Hormones Replacement Therapy could be the answer you’ve been looking for.

As we age many hormone levels naturally start to decline. Hormone deficiencies have been proven to be major contributors to the disease of aging, and there are tremendous health benefits of hormone replacement during the aging process.

Bio Identical Hormones are natural, plant-based hormones that are exactly like the hormones found in our bodies. Each person has their own hormone “blueprint”, and levels of hormones can be adjusted to match each blueprint. This individualized therapy is superior to traditional “one size fits all” synthetic hormone therapies, having more health benefits and fewer side effects.

Below is a list of many of the hormones that decrease as we age. Some or all of these hormones may be supplemented during our Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy:

DHEA: This hormone is precursor to the sex hormones: testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone. DHEA reduces cardiovascular risk by increasing fat metabolism, stimulates the immune system, restores sexual vitality, improves mood, lowers cholesterol and reduces body fat. Recent studies point to DHEA as an anti-stress hormone, reversing the effects of stress on the immune system.

Pregnenolone: This hormone functions as a memory enhancer and is a factor in cell repair, particularly in the brain and nerve tissue. Pregnenolone protects brain function and protects against brain cell injury.

Testosterone: This hormone contributes to energy, muscle mass, strength, endurance, decreased fat, increased exercise tolerance, enhancement of well-being, and psychological status. Testosterone protects against cardiovascular disease, hypertension, obesity and arthritis. It leads to improved lean muscle mass, increased libido, and sexual performance. It prolongs the quality of life by decreasing the diseases of aging. Testosterone levels dramatically decline after the age or forty in both men and women. The most common symptom of declining testosterone, andropause (male menopause) is fatigue and is often experienced by men in their mid-forties. Testosterone is extremely important in the female as well as the male, making supplementation absolutely recommended for both.

Melatonin: This hormone’s levels affect sleep patterns. Research has shown that cells rejuvenate and repair during the deeper stages of sleep. It is during these sleep stages that the body produces natural killer cells or CD4 cells. Melatonin increases the deep stage of sleep and stage IV sleep, thereby increasing and enhancing immunity. Improved sleep patterns serve to energize the body and improve mood. Melatonin has powerful antioxidant effects that contribute to a disease and cancer prevention. Melatonin deficiency results in poor sleep, jet lag, irritability and premature aging.

Thyroid hormone: This hormone contributes to energy levels, temperature regulation, and body warmth. It increases fat breakdown, resulting in weight loss as well as lowering cholesterol. It protects against cardiovascular disease and improves cerebral metabolism, helping to prevent cognitive impairment.

Estrogen: This hormone protects against heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease and memory disorders. It protects against vaginal atrophy (skin thinning), unitary leakage (incontinence), and prevents symptoms of menopause including hot flashes and temperature dysregulation. Estrogen deficiency results in the urogential (urinary and genital) atrophy, incontinence, saggy breast skin, increased face wrinkles, decreased energy, depression, mood swings, decreased libido and insomnia. The use of estrogen replacement during menopause is a classic example of optimizing hormone levels to younger levels to avoid some of the diseases of aging (osteoporosis, heart attack, and stroke).

Progesterone: This hormone is only produced from an ovulating ovary. During reproductive years, it prepares the uterine lining for the embryo implantation. After menopause, progesterone supplementation protects against uterine and breast cancers, osteoporosis, fibrocystic breast disease and ovarian cysts. Most U.S. physicians prescribe synthetic progestins that cause side effects such as bloating, headaches, fatigue, and weight gain. Natural progesterones are as effective and generally do not cause these side effects.

Cortisol: This hormone is responsible for the body’s ability to handle stress. Low cortisol levels contribute to fatigue, poor immune defenses and depression. Low cortisol levels inhibit the effectiveness of antidepressant medication often making depression more difficult to treat.

Hormones are chemicals made by the glands that act to control certain actions of cells and organs. In essence, hormones regulate your body's functions and keep things running smoothly. However, these hormones can become imbalanced or deficient in a condition known as hormone imbalance.

Hormone replacement therapy is one type of treatment designed to correct this problem, but not all forms are created equally. The BioTE® method of hormone pellet therapy goes above and beyond in the treatment of hormone imbalance to provide the best results. 

What is Hormone Pellet Therapy?

Hormone pellet therapy is a treatment created to address hormonal imbalance. Hormonal imbalance occurs when one or more of the body's key hormones is deficient or otherwise not at its optimal production level. This issue can occur in men and women.

Symptoms of hormonal imbalance include:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety
  • Tension and irritability
  • Lack of sleep
  • Memory loss
  • Depression
  • Lack of focus
  • Brain fog
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Weight gain
  • Joint pain
  • Migraines and severe headaches
  • Bladder symptoms
  • Decreased sex drive and performance

Studies have shown hormonal imbalance also affects bone health, breast health, brain health, heart health and other critical systems in the body. Hormonal imbalance has a mix of both tangible and intangible symptoms; some you may notice immediately, and others mask themselves and occur behind the scenes.

How Does Hormone Pellet Therapy Work?

Hormone pellet therapy works by steadily replacing and rebalancing the missing hormones in the body. Hormone pellet therapy has been used since 1939. There are other types of hormone replacement, including:

  • Pills
  • Patches
  • Creams/gels
  • Synthetic injections

Hormone pellet therapy has several advantages over these other methods. These benefits include:

  • It has the same molecular structure as human hormones
  • It lasts longer than other treatments, typically around three to five months
  • It's the most widely studied form of natural hormone therapy
  • It provides a steady stream of hormones in your blood 

The type of hormone therapy we utilize is called the BioTE® method using bio-identical hormone pellet therapy. This type of hormone therapy is meant to be hassle-free: the BioTE® method of hormone pellet therapy provides outstanding results with minimal side effects. Pellet therapy is also the only modality that mimics the body's normal diurnal and circadian rhythms.

Other benefits of utilizing the BioTE® method of hormone pellet therapy are:

  • It's not new: Hundreds of studies have been completed on hormone pellet therapy, and it has been in use since 1939.
  • It's clinically effective: With the BioTE® method using bio-identical hormone pellet therapy, hormones are delivered consistently 24/7 over several months. There is no “roller coaster” effect as with other treatment types.
  • It's convenient: Hormone pellets are implanted just a few times each year.
