The BioTE® Method of Hormone Optimization

Your hormones are one of the most important regulatory systems in the body. Hormones affect many body processes and our overall health. At Broome Nurse Practitioner Skincare, we are a Certified Provider of the BioTE Method, a bioidentical hormone optimization treatment that can help restore your body’s natural hormone balance.

Why Do I Need BioTE?

Hormones can become imbalanced due to a variety of factors, such as the natural aging process or a sub-optimally functioning thyroid. Bioidentical hormones are made of plant materials and are viewed by the body in exactly the same way that our own natural hormones. Bioidentical hormones can help with:

  • Increased mental clarity
  • Strengthening immune system
  • Improving overall health
  • Regaining energy and muscle strength
  • Improving the body’s ability to lose weight
  • Stabilizing mood
  • Improving quality of life and decreasing age-related illnesses

What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

The BioTE method of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy uses custom-compounded pellets (approximately the size of a grain of rice) that contain doses of testosterone and estrogen. These hormones are bioidentical to those already present in the body and work to restore hormones to optimal levels. The pellets are placed subcutaneously in the buttocks and release a continuous stream of hormones as the body needs them. Once inserted, the pellets dissolve slowly, so that they only need to be re-administered every 4-6 months depending on the patient.

The Importance of Hormone Balance

For men and women, the sex hormones estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone perform several important processes. Both men and women begin to produce less of these hormones as they age, which can start as early as someone’s mid 20s or early 30s. 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.
