Hormone Optimization Therapy
Biote Hormone Optimization Therapy
Heidi Hermel, Certified Nurse Practitioner is a Biote Certified Provider at the Skin Clinic Med Spa in Mankato, MN.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a method of restoring the balance of your hormones and aiming to relieve these symptoms, using compounded hormones that are identical in structure to those your body naturally produces. That way, your body recognizes and uses these replacement hormones in exactly the same way it would hormones it produces naturally.
We work with each of our patients on an ongoing basis to analyze their symptoms and lab results using customized dosing to develop a unique, personalized treatment plan for each patient.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
As we age, our bodies naturally start to reduce the amount of hormones like testosterone and estrogen that is produced.
Hormones such as these are incredibly important to how many areas of your body function –such as your brain, heart, bones, reproductive organs, and more. When these hormones are out of balance, multiple symptoms start to appear that traditional medicine often views “as normal symptoms of aging”, and many go on living with these symptoms because their medical provider does not have treatment options for them other than adding more medications to their daily routine…..sleeping pills, anti-depressants, high blood pressure medication, high cholesterol medication, just to name a few.
The Biote Method of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
The Biote Method of hormone optimization is the result of condensing over 80 years of scientific research into a program that may help with the earliest signs of aging.
The Biote Method uses pellets, which are about the size of a grain of rice, for hormone optimization. Your provider at the Skin Clinic Med Spa inserts these tiny pellets under the skin during a simple, in-office procedure.
The pellets will then dissolve slowly over time –they only need to be re-administered approximately every 3-5 months, depending on the patient.
As the pellets dissolve, they release a steady stream of hormones into your bloodstream, and will ultimately be completely absorbed, leaving nothing behind.
The Importance of Hormone Balance
• 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.
