Women have long been taught to put up with the symptoms of PMS, menopause and menstruation — just aspects of being a woman we have to deal with. But with natural hormone replacement therapy, you no longer have to accept the hormonal imbalances accompanying menopause and the damaging side effects as your new reality.
Menopause is a process that occurs naturally when women’s ovaries run out of functioning eggs. When a woman is nearing menopause, her remaining eggs become resistant to follicle-stimulating hormone and reduce estrogen production. This drop in estrogen can lead to a wide range of symptoms, including hot flashes, vaginal dryness, moodiness, irritability and more. Menopause also involves a decrease in ovary production of testosterone. The drop in testosterone can lead to lower sex drive, weight gain and decreased muscle tone.
While many of these symptoms were previously seen as inevitable aspects of aging, we now have options to treat those symptoms and improve your quality of life.
Treatments to beat menopause symptoms
If you’re looking to beat menopause symptoms, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy might be right for you. Hormone replacement therapy, also known as HRT, uses hormones such as estrogen, progesterone and testosterone to treat symptoms like hot flashes, lowered sex drive and vaginal dryness. Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy provides a method to replicate your normal hormone levels, releasing bioidentical hormones into your body’s bloodstream. The steady, slow release of hormones from the pellets helps prevent the up and down side effects of other types of hormone therapy, such as pills or transdermal application. Women who use BioTE bioidentical hormone replacement therapy have enjoyed significant reduction in menopause symptoms and improved overall quality of life.
In addition to bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, there are other ways to provide relief from menopause symptoms. Lifestyle changes and changes to your environment can go a long way toward mitigating menopause symptoms, especially when conducted in tandem with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
Maintaining a healthy diet and exercising regularly are both key aspects of maintaining your overall health and minimizing menopause symptoms. The healthier you are, the more resilient your body is to menopause symptoms. Aerobic exercise can also serve to combat moodiness or irritability by boosting endorphins. It’s also beneficial to notice certain habits, foods or drinks that trigger hot flashes or other symptoms, such as spicy foods or caffeine. If those are triggers for you, try to limit their intake.
Altering your environment can also be a useful tool in providing relief from menopause symptoms. Installing ceiling fans with remote controls in your bedroom or home office provides you some relief from hot flashes at the touch of a button. Dressing lightly or wearing layers can also assist you in those moments, letting you shed a layer or two if you’re dealing with a hot flash.
As you consider your options for relief from menopause symptoms, the first step is talking to an experienced BioTE bioidentical hormone pellet therapy provider today.
Are you struggling to lose weight? Dealing with reduced mental focus and memory? Or having trouble sleeping at night? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s possible that you could be a candidate for BioTE bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
As we age, it’s important to keep our hormones balanced to stay in good health and prevent diseases. But menopause and other aspects of aging can interfere with our hormone balance, leading to issues like fatigue, decreased muscle strength and weight gain.
With BioTE bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, you can get your hormones back in balance and restore your energy and overall wellbeing.
How BioTE works
BioTE uses hormone pellet therapy to replicate your body’s normal hormonal levels and improve your overall health. With hormone pellets, bioidentical estrogen and testosterone are released into the bloodstream and absorbed as needed. And unlike conventional hormones, bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to those produced by your body.
The hormone pellet dosing is customized to your body’s needs so that you get the treatment that’s right for you. Proper hormone levels are determined individually for each patient using the comprehensive BioTE blood work analysis. The pellet implants are placed under the skin and consistently release small doses of bioidentical hormones directly into the bloodstream, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for up to 5 months.
Primary benefits of BioTE
While hormone replacement therapy is a common treatment for reducing the symptoms of menopause, it can also be used more broadly for treatment in men and women. Studies have shown that optimized hormones can significantly reduce the risk of serious health problems, such as osteoporosis, heart disease and diabetes. Those who have used the therapy have reported increases in energy, a reduction in hot flashes, a revived sex drive and improved mental focus.
Some of the main benefits of BioTE include:
●Regained energy and decreased fatigue
●Improved muscle strength
●A greater ability to lose weight
●Increased mental clarity
●Reduced hot flashes
●Improved sex drive and sexual stamina
●Improved overall quality of life
●Prevention of age-related illnesses
●Increased bone mass from testosterone pellets
●Greater ease sleeping at night
●Reduced muscle and joint pain
●Improved mood and overall wellbeing
For women, balancing estrogen levels can help prevent symptoms such as loss of skin elasticity, bone shrinkage, moodiness and cognitive decline, in addition to treating symptoms of menopause. Testosterone therapy can meanwhile provide women with increased libido, improved mental clarity and enhanced muscle tone and mass.
Men, meanwhile, typically begin losing testosterone at a rate of 3 percent to 10 percent per year after age 30, which can eventually lead to fatigue, loss of libido, difficulty maintaining an erection and decreased mental clarity. Testosterone therapy can help combat these symptoms, helping increase sex drive, improve mental clarity and enhance your overall wellbeing.
