It’s hard to fully comprehend the influence of your hormones on your overall health and wellness until you experience an imbalance. From minor quality-of-life issues to a more widespread impact on your physical and mental health, irregular hormone levels can hijack your life in considerable ways.
Here at Gynecologic Surgery & Menopause Solutions, we specialize in helping women in New Lenox, Illinois, and the surrounding areas overcome the effects of low hormone levels, allowing them to lead happy, healthy lives long into the future. To do this, we offer a revolutionary new bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) called BioTE®, which restores your quality of life on many levels.
To help you better understand what BioTe can do, we’ve pulled together five reasons why this therapy may be right for you.
1. Tackling menopause
Menopause marks the transition from your reproductive years to your post-reproductive years. Fueling this transition is a winding down in your egg production caused by a decrease in the hormones estrogen and progesterone, which govern the health of your reproductive organs. But these hormones go far beyond regulating your reproductive health. They impact everything from bone density to mental health.
When you pass through menopause, your hormone levels drop dramatically, leaving you with side effects that can range from annoying hot flashes to more serious problems with sexual health and incontinence. With BioTE BHRT, we replenish your depleted hormone supply, bringing many of your systems back online and functioning properly.
2. Beyond menopause
Menopause isn’t the only condition that leads to low hormone levels in women. For example, childbirth can also set your hormone levels on a veritable roller coaster ride, and they don’t always settle back to normal levels when you need them to. If you’re trying to deal with a newborn alongside a deficit in your hormone levels, you can be left feeling exhausted, anxious, and even depressed.
Certain cancer treatments, namely chemotherapy, can also wreak havoc on your hormones, as well as thyroid issues and reproductive problems like polycystic ovary syndrome.
Lastly, some women are simply genetically inclined toward low hormone levels, which leaves them not quite feeling like themselves. If you fall into this category, a low dose of BioTE can go a long way toward getting you back to your old self again.
BioTe works to restore your energy levels and regulate your moods, not to mention deal with the pesky side effects of hormone imbalances like weight gain and hair loss.
3. Mother Nature knows best
BioTE is unique because instead of relying on animal-derived synthetic hormones, it turns to the plant world to come up with a chemically identical substitute for your own hormones. BioTE uses estradiol as the primary ingredient, which mimics your own estrogen in every way, making it a bioidentical solution.
4. No fuss, no muss
Treatments for regulating hormones have traditionally boiled down to one thing: addressing your symptoms as they arise. This approach is limited and only provides temporary relief, which doesn’t address the underlying problem.
With BioTE, we place pellets under your skin that gradually release the bioidentical hormones into your system for a broader effect that doesn’t require daily pills or messy creams.
5. Made just for you
Abnormal hormone levels affect each woman differently, so there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. With BioTE BHRT, we first study your levels through a blood sample and then come up with an appropriate dosing that’s designed to fit your unique situation. The pellets last for six months, and if we need to adjust your dosing, we can do so easily.
