When your body talks, it’s time to listen.
Certain signs and behaviors such as fatigue, weight gain, diminished sex drive, anxiety, or difficulty focusing can be an indication that you are struggling with a hormone imbalance.
The good news? This is completely treatable with Hormone Replacement Therapy!
Once you’re properly diagnosed, treatment can begin. But before we get into the benefits of hormone replacement therapy, we’re going to explain how to identify a hormone imbalance & how replacement therapy can help.
How to Identify a Hormonal Imbalance?
Because your hormones are extremely important in keeping your body balanced, a disruption in hormone production can impact your ability to function normally.
Side Effects of Hormone Imbalance
Certain side effects include…
- Decreased energy and fatigue
- Brain fog and difficulty focusing
- Low sex drive or decreased sexual performance
- Weight gain and/or difficulty losing weight
- Increase in anxiety and/or depression
- Trouble sleeping
- Hot flashes
If you begin noticing any of these on a regular basis, get in touch with our Fort Collins medical spa to see if you would be a good candidate for Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Both men and women are susceptible to hormone imbalance, but it’s most common for those in their 40s, 50s, and 60s. It’s not impossible, however, to see this diagnosis in younger demographics.
How does BioTE Hormone Replacement Therapy Work?
In order to understand the benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy, you’ll first need to know how it works. BioTE Hormone Replacement Therapy uses pellet therapy as a way to bioidentically replace the hormones people lose over the course of their lives.
For females, this treatment is focused on balancing the hormones containing estrogen and testosterone, while the male therapy is targeted toward testosterone levels alone. The process is designed to replenish the necessary hormones that are missing in order to help people feel balanced and healthy.
Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy
There are both emotional and physical benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy, as your hormones affect both the body and mind.
Finding that balance can result in…
- Increased energy and stamina
- Improved focus and memory
- Increased libido
- Increased lean muscle mass
- Thickening hair
- Decreased depression and/or anxiety
- Greater bone density
- Less inflammation
- Better blood flow to the brain
- Increased ability to lose weight
- Better sleep
Not to mention, additional health benefits of hormone replacement therapy include a reduced risk of…
- Hot flashes
- Heart disease
Not only does replacement therapy address the issues, but it also improves the general health and wellbeing of the person – which is personally our favorite benefit of hormone replacement therapy.
How It Works
To replace the hormones that you may have lost, a trained medical professional will insert custom pellet implants under the skin, so they can gradually release small doses of bioidentical hormones into the bloodstream when you need it.
Because each person is different, these pellets are custom created with your specific situation and physiology in mind. In fact, you cannot receive treatment without a BioTE blood work analysis. These help identify current hormone levels and inform the treatment.
Once the Hormone Replacement Therapy is complete, it will begin working within 7-10 days. To make the experience more comfortable, we’ve outlined the process below.
Here’s what you can expect at our Fort Collins medical spa:
- Professional consultation with our team.
