Tired? Trouble sleeping? Low libido? Brain fog? Weight gain? If you’re making a mental checklist as you read through that list of symptoms…keep reading…this one’s for you. It’s easy to attribute these symptoms (and many others) to “just a part of getting older.” But does it have to be that way? NO! Thanks to bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), you can restore your energy, regain your vitality, and optimize your overall health and well-being. 

We introduced BHRT in last month’s issue, but the testimonials we’ve received from patients in recent weeks inspired us to dive deeper and share more information about this truly life-changing treatment. There’s a lot of buzz about hormone replacement therapy options. Keep in mind that the BHRT we offer here at Aurora is ALL-NATURAL; it is not synthetic hormone replacement (i.e. injections, pills, etc.). We offer BHRT through BioTe– the leaders of bioidentical hormone therapy. We aren’t applying creams or patches, we aren’t giving you injections every week. The BioTe method of BHRT dates back to 1939 and has over 80 years of use and studies worldwide. This method involves tiny pellets (derived from all natural compounds and identical to the hormones our bodies naturally produce) being inserted under the skin 2-3 times per year. The pellets release the hormones based on your cardiac output (how hard your heart is working at the time), and therefore provide a more steady stream of testosterone and/or estrogen which allows patients to avoid those notorious ups and downs often associated with some other types of hormone therapies.

What are the benefits of BHRT through pellets?

  • Reduced brain fog
  • Increased energy
  • Enhanced sleep
  • Reduced anxiety & depression
  • Stronger bones & muscles
  • Reduced body fat
  • Breast protection
  • Cardiovascular/heart protection
  • Enhanced libido

So you feel like the symptoms we’ve talked about might describe you and wondering what the next steps are? We’ve got you. As always at Aurora, consultations are completely complimentary, and there is also a free health assessment available on our website www.auroramedicalspacape.com, and from there we would send patients for lab work. This thorough pre-pelleting panel consists of almost 50 individual tests! Your lab results are then used to carefully calculate your individualized treatment, customized to your body’s needs. After lab work, we schedule your first insertion. YAY! Insertion appointments are quick and easy. Male patients– we see you every 5 months (that’s only twice a year!). Ladies– we see you every 3-4 months for insertions. Most patients report signs of symptom relief as early as 7 days post-treatment. BHRT via BioTe pellets…works better, lasts longer, fewer treatments…it’s time to take your life back folks.
