regulatory systems!

Hormone Therapy

How It Works

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is FDA-approved to naturally replace hormones that are out of balance due to menopause, andropause, or other life changes.

Hormone imbalance can affect both men and women, and symptoms include depression, anxiety, weight gain, sleep issues, decreased muscle strength, and sexual dysfunction.

At Jiva Med Spa, we only use BioTE medical products, which contain man-made hormones that are chemically identical to the hormones our bodies naturally produce.

Hormone Therapy

Hormone Imbalance Can Present Itself In Many Ways

  • Difficulty sleeping at night / fatigue during the day

  • Reduced mental focus, anxiety, and depression

  • Weight gain, especially around the midsection

  • Weight gain, inability to lose weight regardless of diet or exercise

  • Decreased muscle strength; muscle/joint pain

  • Reduced sexual desire and erectile dysfunction

  • Severe post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms

At Jiva Med Spa, We Only Use BioTE Medical Products

What is BioTE?
BioTE Medical provides bioidentical hormone replacement pellet therapy to men and women. Hormones are one of the body’s most important regulatory systems, as they stimulate specific cells and organs into action. As we age, hormone production changes and hormone imbalance can occur. A hormone imbalance can have a variety of side effects and symptoms. The BioTE method of hormone replacement therapy can help alleviate those symptoms.

What Makes BioTE Great?
BioTE Medical is one of the nation’s leaders in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, with over one million insertions performed. Every BioTE Medical pellet is customized for each patient’s needs, and the pellets use hormones similar to those naturally found in the human body. These pellets are subcutaneously inserted in a quick, painless procedure, then they dissolve into the body, keeping hormone levels consistent throughout the day.

“Hormone pelleting is something that can benefit anybody
in any age group, from 20 years old and older. If you suffer from
fatigue, you can’t sleep well, your sex drive’s low, or you work out
and eat well but can’t lose weight… that could be your hormones.”

– Dr. Rakesh Nanda

“I’m in my 50s and things were starting to slow down, and it was affecting my work life, home life, everything. Now I have a new energy and it’s almost hard to describe. The calming effect it had on me was absolutely amazing… I’m not as uptight, intense, and as soon as my head hits the pillow it’s just relaxing… it’s incredible.”

– Julie, Jiva Med Spa patient

“I was looking for a hormone treatment and I knew Dr. Nanda did the pellets, and everything is great now. It’s changed my life. No hot flashes, it helps with weight gain. Just overall, I’m feeling great. I’m feeling better.”

– Vanessa, Jiva Med Spa patient

“I was feeling tired, I wasn’t feeling like myself, and the Jiva Med Spa staff recommended I talk to Dr. Nanda about hormone pelleting. I got my blood work done and I realized that I could definitely benefit from the pelleting. I’ve been doing it for 2 years and I’ve gotten great results. My energy has increased, and I have more muscle now. My whole life has really changed.”

– Jiva Med Spa patient

“Sexual desire goes back through the roof again. That is not an exaggeration at all. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve noticed my body didn’t respond like it used to. Even though my mind still had the desire, my body wasn’t cooperating most of the time. I don’t have to work at getting excited anymore, my husband just touches me, and my body responds like it used to when I was a teenager. It’s crazy and wonderful! I am looking forward to my husband getting the treatment so he can feel like he’s 20 again, too.”

– Jiva Med Spa patient

“I was having some mental focus problems in my own personal life, and hormone therapy was introduced to me through a friend of mine. I had some of my levels checked and got my blood work done. I found out that – for a guy my age – my testosterone levels were in range, but not at optimal levels… it’s made a difference in every aspect of my life. Yes, my sexual drive has improved tenfold, but there’s so much more to it.”

– Adam, Jiva Med Spa Patient

Frequently Asked Questions
About Hormone Therapy

  • What Should I Do Before I Schedule An Appointment?

    No fasting is required in advance of the insertion.

  • What Should I Do Before The Insertion?

    One week before the insertion, if possible, stop all NSAIDs
    (aspirin, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, naproxen sodium, etc.)

  • What Test is Required Before the Insertion?

    At a minimum, BioTE requires a comprehensive blood panel
    which you can discuss with Dr. Nanda at Jiva Med Spa.

  • What Happens During The In-Office Insertion?

    During the in-office visit, which only takes a few minutes, patients are brought into the exam room, and the insertion site is numbed. The most common site of insertion is the upper buttocks. A small incision is then made for pellet insertion. Once the pellet is inserted, the insertion site is covered with a small bandage.

  • What Happens During The Week Following The Insertion?

    After pellet insertion, it’s best to eliminate lower body exercise. You can walk, but extraneous activity is not recommended. Swimming, hot tubs, and bathtubs are to be avoided; however, showers are permitted. After removal of the bandage, normal activity may resume.

  • How Often Is Pellet Insertion Necessary?

    As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Your journey will be customized to fit your specific needs. It takes more than one to two weeks for your hormones to get out of balance, so expect it to take time for your symptoms to resolve.

  • What Happens To Pellets After Insertion?

    Since the pellets are bioidentical and contain nothing more than the hormones your body naturally produces, the pellets are completely dissolved and absorbed, leaving nothing behind. If you ever decide to stop Bioidentical Hormone Therapy, your hormones will naturally return to their pre-treatment levels.

  • How Does Hormone Therapy Help With Depression, Anxiety & PTSD?

    When essential hormone levels are out of balance – either too high or too low – they can influence neurotransmitters, which can increase anxiety, depression, and PTSD symptoms. According to Harvard Health, the risk of depression doubles or even quadruples during menopause! Hormone therapy is a safe, all-natural way to improve your mental health and ward off anxiety, depression, and PTSD symptoms. In fact, BioTE is currently studying the effects of hormone therapy on military service members who suffer from PTSD!

  • How Can Hormone Therapy Help Improve Your Sex Life?

    Essential hormones like estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone all play a major role in the bedroom. If any of these “sex hormones” become out of balance, they can lead to changes in a person’s sexual desire and performance. For men and women alike, hormone therapy can improve sexual function by boosting libido, restoring lubrication, reducing pain during sex, and eliminating the symptoms of erectile dysfunction. After just a few weeks of BioTE, many couples report feeling more satisfied than ever before!

Dr. Nanda went above and beyond answering any questions I might have and making me as comfortable as possible with the process of laser tattoo removal. I was blown away with how much could be removed per session. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for tattoo removal of any size.
