How BioTe Can Help You Fight Back Against Menopause Symptoms
It’s no secret that menopause can be a real pain (literally). The distressing symptoms of menopause are brought on by the ovaries no longer creating the hormones your body needs to maintain a healthy rhythm. It’s this hormonal imbalance that causes problems like insomnia, decreased sex drive, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, low energy, weight gain and a whole slew of other torments.
Fortunately, Longevity offers a simple and effective treatment that tackles many of these symptoms. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, often known as BioTe, is a minimally invasive treatment that replenishes your body’s hormone levels back to a balanced state. BioTe therapy only involves two to four pellet insertions per year, whereas traditional hormone treatments require countless injections or tedious topical use.
What Can BioTe Do for Me?
BioTe differs from traditional hormone replacement therapy in that it is created using sweet yams. Many other treatments use synthetic hormones from questionable sources - horse urine, for instance. As a result, the hormones found in BioTe more closely resemble those found naturally in the human body, which means lower risk and higher reward.
BioTe is quickly becoming one of the most celebrated methods of hormone replacement therapy around. In fact, the North American Menopause Society reports about 40 percent of all menopause-related hormone treatments are bioidentical. The benefits of BioTe Hormone Therapy include:
● Enhanced brain function
● More restful sleep
● Decreased depression and mood swings
● Stronger, denser bones
● Thicker, healthier hair
● Improved vaginal health
● Greater sex drive
● Increased energy levels
BioTe has also been shown to greatly improve skin condition. Raina Hamlin, a Certified Nurse Practitioner with Longevity, says a restored hormonal balance allows the body to produce higher levels of hyaluronic acid. This means the skin can hold more moisture and therefore show fewer signs of aging.
Is BioTe Safe?
Traditional synthetic hormone therapies pose a wide array of potential health risks - blood clotting, stroke, and breast cancer to name a few. Bioidentical hormone treatment, however, has been proven to be significantly safer through extensive medical research. Upon going through the FDA’s rigorous review process, BioTe was found to meet the organization’s strict standards and deemed safe for use.
Because BioTe can be taken in pellet form, dosages tend to be more evened out. This allows your body to get used to the increase in hormones over time without the severe hormonal fluctuations that often come with injections and creams. Pellet therapy works with your body to gradually balance out your hormone levels with less risk of negative side effects.
The Longevity Difference
Although BioTe is certainly safer than conventional options, many clinics create unnecessary risks simply by failing to take all the steps needed to ensure patient safety throughout the therapy process.
That’s why our team of experts diligently monitor your progress in every stage of treatment and follow up with in-depth lab testing. We also follow a strict set of guidelines and standards, such as referencing your up-to-date mammogram and Pap test to customize your treatment to your exact needs.
In addition to our in-depth testing and monitoring process, we also offer the supplement Dem. Dem helps your body to more easily absorb new hormones and put them to work. Taking Dem while undergoing hormone replacement therapy maximizes your treatment’s effectiveness.
