As we get older, we tend to experience emotional symptoms of hormone imbalance, such as fatigue, foggy thinking, weight gain, and feeling lethargic, anxious, or depressed. Ever feel like you're in a "brain fog?" This can be a clue that you have a hormone imbalance.In addition, physical symptoms of hormone imbalance in women can include things like acne, thinning hair, excessive hair on the face and arms, thin/dry skin, brown spots on the face, lack of sex drive, unstable blood sugar, and low blood pressure. There are many possible causes for these conditions. Luckily, there is a therapy that can get you back on track, called BioTE - bioidentical hormone therapy.
What is BioTE?
BioTE serves as a solution, helping with healthy aging by providing essential hormones needed to regain natural energy. Using bio-identical hormone therapy (BHRT), BioTE optimizes the needed hormones you are lacking. This lack of necessary hormones may be the root cause of ailments, such as unexplained weight gain, mood swings, or lack of focus. BioTE is customized to fit the hormone requirements of each patient. This individualized, precise dosing makes sure you receive what your body needs.
Why Do I Need BioTE?
BioTE is a form of Bio-identical Hormone Therapy. It serves as a natural alternative, and is used to correct common symptoms of hormone imbalance such as:
- Reduced Sexual Desire
- Weight Gain
- Decreased Muscle Strength
- And more...

Long term use of BioTE can reduce the risk of serious health problems, such as Breast Cancer, Osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Heart Disease, and Diabetes.
Physicians can treat female hormone imbalance in many different ways. Some methods include traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT), a method which uses synthetic hormones to achieve relief from symptoms, and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
Bio-identical refers to how molecularly similar the hormones are to human hormones. The hormones within BHRT pellets are bio-identical, meaning that they are molecularly the same as naturally occurring human hormones. They are made from plants. Synthetic hormones are made from animals.
The process helps with hormone imbalance because it replaces the hormones in which you are deficient -- each patient gets a unique "cocktail" based on results from blood work. This truly is a unique solution!
If you are in the process of physically transforming your body through surgery, as a gender affirmation patient, you may be interested in continuing your transition with BioTE.
BioTE hormone therapy can also be a great supplement to take before you begin your gender transition, too!
