BioTE® Hormone Replacement Therapy Can Make You Feel Young Again
For many people, fluctuating hormones cause a host of undesirable symptoms. In some cases, hormone changes are temporary and level out again on their own, such as during puberty or pregnancy. Other times, including when a patient is going through menopause or andropause, treatment may be needed to mitigate unwanted symptoms. In either case, board-certified physician Dr. Lily Phillips and the expert wellness team at Ageless Grace in Murrieta, CA can help you feel younger, healthier, and more like yourself again with BioTE bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Review the information below to learn more about how bioidentical hormone replacement works and whether it may be the solution you’ve been looking for.
What are the main symptoms of menopause?
Menopause, which marks the cessation of a woman’s menstrual cycle and a sharp decline in estrogen levels, typically occurs around age 50. However, the earliest symptoms of menopause – a stage known as perimenopause – often begin in a patient’s 30s or 40s. Some of the most common signs of menopause include:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Mood swings
- Low energy level
- Thinning hair
- Weight gain
- Vaginal dryness
- Low libido
- Loss of bone density (osteoporosis)
For men, andropause brings about a similar decline in the male hormone testosterone, which often results in:
- Low energy level
- Thinning hair/hair loss
- Weight gain
- Loss of muscle mass
- Sexual dysfunction
- Low libido
Unlike hormone fluctuations that occur during pregnancy or puberty, which are temporary, the dramatic hormone changes experienced during menopause and andropause often produce unwanted symptoms that may last for many years, if not indefinitely. For many men and women, particularly those who experience early menopause or andropause, these symptoms can make them feel older than they actually are. Fortunately, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy offers patients the opportunity to feel younger, healthier, and more vibrant once again.
What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?
BHRT, or bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, is a popular treatment option for patients who are frustrated with symptoms related to menopause, andropause, or another type of hormone imbalance, and desire a more natural alternative to synthetic hormone replacement therapy. For many patients, bioidentical hormones – which are designed to mimic the body’s naturally occurring hormones identically – are absorbed more efficiently than synthetic hormones.
At Ageless Grace, Dr. Phillips is proud to offer the BioTE line of bioidentical hormone medications. BioTE bioidentical hormone therapy is delivered via a specialized pellet system, which contains plant-based hormones that are custom-compounded to meet a patient’s specific needs and goals. Over the course of treatment with BioTE hormone replacement therapy, the pellets deliver a steady dose of medication to provide stable, reliable symptom relief.
How does BHRT make you feel younger?
With so many of our body’s natural processes controlled by hormones, it’s no surprise that shifting hormone levels can make us feel – and even look – older than we really are. By restoring the hormones to their normal physiologic ranges, patients often enjoy a more youthful vibrancy and even appearance. Some of the age-defying benefits of BHRT may include:
- Higher energy level
- Less loss of bone density and muscle mass
- Fuller hair/less hair loss
- Improved weight control
- Increased vaginal lubrication for more enjoyable sex
- Improved sexual function
- Heightened libido
During your initial consultation for BHRT in the Temecula/Murrieta area, Dr. Phillips will discuss your specific concerns and help determine whether this exciting treatment may be right for you.
