Optimize Your Hormones & Extend Healthspans
HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
Having fatigue, weight gain, low energy, and brain fog that can make it hard to keep up? These feelings are just a few of the many symptoms of a HORMONAL IMBALANCE.
The primary goal of hormone replacement therapy is to help balance hormones through therapy using pellets. Hormone balance is crucial to leading a better life, and that’s why our mission is to help people live better, longer.
The method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy uses custom-compounded pellets (approximately the size of a grain of rice) that contain doses of testosterone and estrogen.
These hormones are bioidentical to those already present in the body and work to restore hormones to optimal levels.
THE IMPORTANCE OF HORMONE BALANCE
For men and women, the sex hormones estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone perform several important processes. Both men and women begin to produce less of these hormones as they age, which can start as early as someone’s mid-20s or early 30s. Most women see a significant drop in estrogen and testosterone during menopause, while many men may experience a similar phenomenon relating to testosterone, known as andropause.
Hormonal imbalances occur when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream. Hormones are important for regulating most major bodily processes. Because of their essential role in the body, even the smallest hormonal imbalance can cause side effects throughout the body.
We offer a Hormone Replacement Therapy for patients located in the northern suburbs of Chicago, IL like Buffalo Grove, Wheeling, Vernon Hills, Deerfield, Lincolnshire, Northbrook, Palatine, and other nearby towns.
How It Works
The pellets are placed subcutaneously in the buttocks and release a continuous stream of hormones as the body needs them. Once inserted, the pellets dissolve slowly, so that they only need to be re-administered every 4-6 months depending on the patient.
As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Some patients report symptom relief in as little as four weeks, but complete symptom relief may take up to six months. The BioTE method of hormone optimization therapy will be customized to balance each patient’s hormones and fit their specific needs.
