Beat Back-To-School Stress with Biote Biote Hormone Pellet Therapy is the best solution for quickly restoring imbalanced hormones, regulating body functions, and revitalizing one’s overall health and well-being. Once August rolls around, many parents are busy with back-to-school tasks for their child. Running errands for school supplies, shopping for new clothes & shoes, and simply readjusting to a student’s new routines and extracurricular activities can leave you totally drained! This time of year, the endless to-do list feels like just the beginning. With shorter days and less sunlight on the horizon, additional labor-intensive chores like raking the leaves, and accumulated stress from upcoming holiday planning, it’s no wonder that the body can feel run down from crippling exhaustion. However, it’s important to pay attention to our overall health and wellbeing, especially if we’re consistently fatigued, unmotivated, or feeling depressed. Often times, many people do not realize they are experiencing some of the most common side effects of a hormone imbalance. How Hormones Work Hormones are essential for the body’s endocrine system to properly function. Once they are secreted into the bloodstream, hormones signal tissues across the body on what to do and how to operate. From basic internal temperature regulation to breakdown of food, to reproductive health—these hormones control many crucial functions throughout the human body. When hormone levels are out of balance, they can wreak havoc on the body, resulting in a wide array of symptoms in men and women. Typical symptoms include: Fatigue Decreased sexual function Weight gain Mood swings Sleep deprivation Increased anxiety, stress Causes of Hormone Imbalance Hormone levels can become unstable for numerous reasons, such as weather, lifestyle choices, pregnancy and giving birth, or other preexisting medical conditions. For example, seasonal depression (also known as Seasonal Affective Disorder) is triggered by the lack of sunshine which helps regulate serotonin. Typically, around the start of fall, when kids are returning to the classroom, everyone’s hormones are shifting—one likely reason your normal sleeping patterns and mood are more erratic. Unfortunately, the most common reason for hormone imbalance is simply the body’s natural aging process. For women, this is called menopause; for men, andropause. Menopause This biological process marks the end of a woman’s ability to reproduce, usually in her 40s or 50s. The ovaries gradually produce less estrogen, creating symptoms such as mood swings, reduced libido, hot flashes, and fitful sleep. Andropause Men experience a decrease in testosterone as they undergo “male menopause,” although it does not occur in all men. Symptoms are similar to menopause, including low energy, sleep troubles, reduced libido, hair loss, and possible erectile disfunction. Aging is inevitable, but there are plenty of ways to combat the effects of hormone imbalance. Exercising regularly, proper hydration, and eating healthy foods are just a few methods that help people regain energy, not to mention the medical innovation of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Let’s Talk About Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) uses man-made hormones, similar to those produced by the human body, to reenergize patients to achieve normal hormone levels. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved numerous variants of bioidentical hormones, which are engineered from plants to create an identical structure of the natural hormone on the molecular level. BHRT can be administered in several ways, including pills, creams, and patches, yet pellet therapy is the most preferred method among medical professionals. Patients don’t have to take yet another pill (which is easy to forget!) and the process is still a minimally invasive procedure. A small area around the fleshy upper thigh or buttocks is numbed for the insertion of a pellet where, once implanted, it will dissolve steadily until the body absorbs it completely, leaving nothing behind. The subcutaneous pellet therapy ensures that steady levels of hormones are being continuously released throughout the day and night, creating a more consistent result. One business that is at the forefront of bioidentical hormone therapy innovation is Biote. With over 2 million pellet insertions in their company’s history, Biote has the most reliable, highest-performing technique backed by their extensive lab work which enables individually customized doses. Because of this, their pellets are unavailable for casual, over-the-counter purchases; instead, they are exclusively found at Certified Biote Provider locations, such as Jiva Med Spa.
