Hormone Replacement- BioTE®

Did you ever wonder why most illnesses begin in your 40ʼs?

So many men and women begin to suffer from a long list of symptoms including depression and anxiety, insomnia, decreased libido, decreased energy and difficulty losing weight beginning in their 40ʼs.

So many are suddenly diagnosed with blood pressure and thyroid problems, diabetes, and high cholesterol at this age as well. So much of this is due to loss of hormones which begin in our 30ʼs. In fact, it is primarily the loss of these protective balanced hormones that increase breast cancer risk in women and prostate cancer risk in men in our 40ʼs. We should be protecting ourselves by balancing our hormones at this age instead of just getting screening tests to catch the disease.

There is a huge difference between synthetic hormones and bio-identical hormones. Bio-identical hormones are a natural plant source for hormones which allow us to bring back the protective balance we had before the rapid aging process begins. We cannot stop the hands of time. We can age better.
