BioTe® pellet therapy is a form of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). It uses pellets that are plant-based and safe for your body. The pellets contain bioidentical hormones, which are replicas of hormones that help balance out your system.
There are many conditions associated with hormonal imbalance, and BioTe pellet therapy can provide effective relief from the symptoms that come with it.
Located in Gardena, California, Dr. Gwen Allen of Gardena Women’s Center can help offer you relief from these 5 conditions using BioTe pellet therapy.
Symptoms of menopause are different for each woman. If menopause suddenly occurs, the symptoms tend to be far more severe. Most symptoms of menopause include:
Menopause affects the production of several hormones, like estrogen. BioTe pellet therapy can alleviate the severity of these symptoms by continuously releasing the reduced hormones.
Osteoporosis is more commonly known as brittle bone disease. It reduces bone mass, which causes your bones to weaken and grow thin. The risk of developing osteoporosis increases with age, along with the natural deterioration of bone strength.
Since hormones are vital for growth, hormonal imbalances can put you at a greater risk for osteoporosis.
Depression is more common in women than in men, as women experience more hormone imbalances from pregnancy, menopause, and other conditions.
Many medical conditions are tied to depression. For women in particular, premenstrual syndrome (PMS) can lead to a form of depression called premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). The main difference between PMS and PMDD is that the symptoms are far worse in PMDD and can seriously affect a person’s everyday activities.
Your thyroid gland releases hormones that impact your mood, weight, and energy. Hyperthyroidism, more commonly known as overactive thyroid, is a condition in which the thyroid gland produces an excess of hormones.
An overabundance of thyroid hormones may cause:
It’s possible for a person to suffer from both hyperthyroidism and depression. If you are experiencing similar symptoms, Dr. Allen can help determine what’s causing them and whether BioTe pellet therapy can help you.
Similar to hyperthyroidism, an underactive thyroid (or hypothyroidism) results in less production of crucial thyroid hormones. Some common symptoms of hypothyroidism include:
Regulating thyroid hormones is important as they assist with sleep and weight control.
Properly balancing your hormones makes a big difference in how your body functions. If you have any of the conditions listed above, we may have the solution for you!
