Healthy Hormones with BioTE
Hormones are your body’s chemical messengers. They help to regulate processes in the body like hunger, blood pressure, and sexual desire. Over time, the body can start producing less of these hormones, which can result in some undesirable symptoms. This leads many to consider hormone replacement therapy.
5 Reasons to Consider Hormone Replacement Therapy
1. You are experiencing symptoms that indicate hormone imbalance.
Hormone imbalance therapies are used to provide relief from the symptoms of a wide variety of conditions. The BioTE approach is bioidentical and custom compounded to each patient’s unique physiology.

• Increased body fat (especially in the waist area)
• Decreased bone mass

• Brain fog
• Elevated blood sugar
• High cholesterol
Common signs and symptoms of hormonal imbalance in women

• Trouble sleeping
• Mood swings
• Low mood
• Discomfort during intercourse
2. You want natural therapy.
Pellet therapy works by delivering and distributing hormones in a manner that mimics the way your body would produce them naturally. This allows the body to more easily process and eliminate them. Many of our patients prefer pellet treatment over pills, creams, patches, and gels that may contain synthetic hormones and other unwanted fillers.
3. You don’t need another daily task.
Healthcare Express offers a hormone replacement treatment that uses pellets, tiny cylindrical-shaped supplements, inserted under the skin that slowly releases the hormones over time. This means that the only thing you have to remember is making your follow up appointment every 3 to 6 months! You won't have to set a daily phone reminder to take your pill or keep up with any messy gels or creams. For a busy lifestyle, this is a must!
4. You want to minimize the risks of side effects.
Side effects are always possible when taking medication or treatment, however, BioTE minimizes side effects in two major ways. First, BioTE uses bioidentical hormones that resemble natural hormones. Second, BioTE releases hormones over time which means your body won’t be overwhelmed with an abundance of hormones or experience the “peaks and valleys” associated with other therapies.
5. You deserve it!
Whether you are experiencing mental, physical, or emotional symptoms, hormone replacement therapy may help relieve the symptoms of hormonal imbalance by restoring hormones to optimal levels, allowing many patients to return to normal, healthy lives.
Our certified BioTE providers are trained to determine the ideal pellet plan for a patient based on our initial consultation and extensive lab work. Then, the hormone pellet will be inserted through a small incision in the upper buttocks that is covered with a small bandage. Once inserted, the bioidentical pellets will dissolve and be absorbed by the body over time. Contact a Healthcare Express location near you to learn more.
