Clinical scientific studies show HRT is not only effective, but when monitored, is safe for treating symptoms for both women and men. In addition, mounting evidence continues to show it is significantly life-extending. Here’s a simple explanation: as you age, your body may slow the production of certain hormones. Hormone Replacement Therapy essentially makes up what your body no longer makes. Adding the hormones back allows key functions to continue versus abate. The Optimal Health Associates approach to Hormone Replacement Therapy is simple due to our vast experience. We determine the symptoms and correlate them to a thorough medical and laboratory evaluation. Each patient will then work with our team to find out exactly what is causing your symptoms. You will work with your provider to design a plan uniquely formulated to meet your specific needs.
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. BioTE® hormone pellet therapy goes above and beyond in the treatment of hormone imbalance to provide the best results. 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
- It provides individualized dosing
- It's inserted under the skin
