BioTe BioIdentical Hormone Therapy

What are hormones?

Hormones are the chemical messengers in your body that tell your various organs and organ systems what to do. Your hormones not only control ovulation and sex drive, but they also control mood, metabolism, heartbeat, and blood pressure. Your hormones are made in the glands that make up your endocrine system and include:

  • Estrogen and testosterone
  • Thyroid hormones
  • Melatonin
  • Cortisol
  • Insulin

When your hormones are in balance, your body functions efficiently. However, an imbalance in your hormone levels may affect function and health and cause symptoms that impact your quality of life.

How do I know if my hormones out of balance?

The team at Orange County Laser and Wellness Center can determine if your hormones are out of balance during a consultation. You may want to consider scheduling a consultation if you’re not feeling quite like your usual self. 

Some of the symptoms that indicate a hormone imbalance include:

  • Low sex drive
  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Brain fog
  • Irritability
  • Insomnia
  • Hot flashes

Most women experience these symptoms during perimenopause, which is the transitional period when your hormone levels begin to fluctuate before you officially reach menopause. But hormonal shifts can occur at any time and involve more than just your sex hormones. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, contact the team at Orange County Laser and Wellness Center for an evaluation. They can easily check your hormone levels and determine if you’re out of balance and provide treatment to optimize your levels.

What is bioidentical hormone therapy?

Bioidentical hormone therapy is a more natural form of hormone replacement. Bioidentical hormones are created from yams or soy and have the same chemical structure as the hormones in your body. When used for therapy, bioidentical hormones restore your hormone levels to relieve your symptoms and improve your health.

Orange County Laser and Wellness Center uses BioTE hormone pellets for your bioidentical hormone therapy. These pellets are custom created to match your specific hormonal needs and are inserted underneath the skin in your buttocks to provide you with a steady dose of hormones for full hormonal optimization. 

For a more natural form of hormone replacement, consider bioidentical hormone therapy from the women’s health experts at Orange County Laser and Wellness Center. Call the office to request an appointment today.
