Hormones and BioTe®

Hormones have a powerful influence on our bodies and affect how we look and feel. They are the body’s way of communicating chemically among the cells and impact virtually every function in our body. Optimizing hormone levels through the use of BioTe hormone therapy protects us from the effects of aging, including preventing or postponing the onset of chronic diseases.

Common conditions that men and women face as they age are often the result of lifestyle and diet, but these conditions also may be caused by exposure to pollution, toxins, and xenoestrogens (synthetic chemicals that act as estrogen in our bodies).

Often overlooked as a cause for these conditions is hormone imbalance, a frequent contributor to physical and mental health issues, illness, and disease. Heart disease, high blood pressure, decreased good (HDL) cholesterol, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, and prostate health—some of which are major risk factors for death—are all related to hormonal changes. Many of these conditions can be reversed to a surprising degree when a proper balance of the hormones is achieved in the body and is combined with sensible diet and exercise.

Advanced Hormone Testing At Revitalife

Conventional hormone testing is a one-sample blood test that often provides inadequate results. The conventional “normal” ranges for hormones are broad and nonspecific and appear virtually normal, so many patients who are clearly symptomatic and suffering from hormonal imbalances are often told that their lab results are normal and nothing is wrong. At RevitaLife we strive to make you feel better, so our goal is to restore your hormones to more youthful levels, not to the levels that are typically associated with your age.

We offer advanced hormone testing to determine if underlying hormonal imbalance is the cause of symptoms you are experiencing, and we check all hormones in the body with simple blood, saliva, and/or urine tests to:

  • Detect and identify hormone imbalances that may be associated with your symptoms
  • Establish hormone baselines prior to beginning therapy
  • Monitor and track treatment progress with follow-up reports

Customized Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy or hormone therapy comes in many forms, including replacement with synthetic hormonal substances by injections, pills, creams, gels, patches, etc. However, synthetic hormones are not identical to the hormones the body uses and can act as toxins because their chemical makeup is at odds with the body. Adverse side effects from synthetic hormones are often worse than the symptoms for which the cure was introduced.

Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones are an exact replica of the hormones naturally produced by the body. Bioidentical hormones are based on compounds found in such plants as yams and soybeans. These plant-based hormones are processed in such a way that their structure is identical to hormones produced naturally by the body. This is why bioidentical hormones are termed “natural” and can be metabolized by our bodies in the same way as hormones made within the body.

At RevitaLife, we offer an individualized bioidentical hormone replacement therapy program that includes:

  • A comprehensive review of your medical history and symptoms
  • Blood, saliva (for cortisol levels), and/or urine testing of your hormonal levels
  • Consultation to review test results and develop a plan of action
  • Administration of bioidentical hormone pellets to achieve optimal wellness
  • Ongoing re-evaluations to obtain optimum hormone levels that are right for you
  • Nutritional planning
  • Fitness program

Pellet Therapy For Hormone Replacement

Pellet Therapy or Bioidentical hormone pellets have gained prominence as the most effective and the most bioidentical method to deliver hormones in both men and women. Bioidentical means that the hormones used in the pellets are chemically the same as those produced by the body. The pellets, which are larger than a grain of rice and smaller than a Tic Tac, contain either testosterone or estradiol, an important form of estrogen. They are prepared by local compounding pharmacies that merge state-of-the-art technology with the most up-to-date medical knowledge to prepare customized formulas from natural ingredients in dosages that meet the patient's specific needs.

Midlife Changes

The bioidentical hormone pellets avoid the fluctuations of hormone levels associated with synthetic hormones. Studies show that, when compared to conventional hormone replacement therapy with synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormone pellets are superior for the maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, and improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response, and performance.

No other method of hormone delivery is as convenient for the patient as the pellets. They have been used in both men and women since the late 1930s, and even patients who have failed other types of hormone therapy have a very high success rate with the pellets.
