BioTE Pellet Therapy Q & A

What is hormone imbalance?

Hormones are an essential part of the healthy functioning of your body. These chemical messengers, released by the endocrine system, have a part in all of the major processes of your body, including reproduction, growth, and metabolism.

As you get older, the natural production of hormones that regulate temperature, sex drive, hair production, weight, and emotions (just to name a few) fluctuate dramatically. This can have profound effects on your overall sense of well-being and put all your body systems in a state of frustrating, often unpredictable, imbalance.

What are the symptoms of hormone imbalance?

Because hormones are an integral part of every body system, the imbalance of these chemicals can have a wide range of different symptoms. Just to name a few of the most common signs of hormonal imbalance:

  • Abnormal periods — excessive, absent or inconsistent
  • Abnormal hair production — loss, thinning or excessive
  • Weight loss or gain
  • Skin darkening or dryness
  • Night sweats
  • Abnormal heart rhythms
  • Anxiety
  • Lack of sex drive
  • Irritability or anxiety
  • Muscle and joint pain

Again, these are just a few of the ways that a hormonal imbalance can affect you.

How can BioTe Hormone Pellet Therapy treat hormonal imbalance?

Because hormonal imbalance can be such significant issue for women’s health, Dr. Breit offers BioTe as an option for hormone replacement therapy. This type of therapy offers a safe and natural way of replacing hormones that have been lost.

BioTe is a type of therapy that uses bioidentical, or chemically identical, plant extracts that behave exactly like your body’s naturally made hormones. Replacing the hormones that are not being produced could improve your symptoms dramatically.

With BioTe Hormone Pellet Therapy,  a rice-sized pellet placed under the top layer of your skin delivers the plant-derived hormones slowly over time. With a simple injection, the bioidentical hormone replacement is able to get to work immediately and last somewhere between four to six months.

BioTe Hormone Pellet Therapy gives an even, consistent release of the bioidentical hormones. This helps to eliminate the “roller coaster” feeling that other hormone replacement therapies can create.

Many of Dr. Breit’s patients report feeling a return of the natural balance of their hormones and an immediate improvement of their symptoms.
