Why Your Doctor Doesn’t Prescribe Conventional Hormones Anymore
For years, many women were on conventional hormone therapy replacement. Significant health safety concerns arose in 2002 for women using synthetic hormone replacement therapies (HRT). This led to millions to stop taking it—up to 70 percent according to one survey. There were few alternative for both patients and physicians, until the advent of bioidentical hormones.
Understanding Bioidentical Hormones
What are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are structurally identical to the body’s hormones (Hence the name “bio-identical”) and follow the same pathways and act on the same receptors. The side effects are minimal and have not been found to cause the same issues as conventional hormone replacement. Most bioidentical hormones are made of a natural plant extract. Examples include yams and soybeans.
Bioidentical Hormone Benefits for Men
Men can go through “Manopause” or male menopause. Our testosterone levels are highest in our 20s and slowly dissipate as we age. Symptoms include fatigue, poor recovery from workouts, erectile dysfunction, weight gain, and irritability. Hormone imbalances can lead to greater medical issues, an overall slowdown of your optimal issues. At Executive Medical, we provide both pellet or injection form.
Bioidentical Hormone Benefits for Women
Women can go through variations of hormone imbalance through life from puberty, to childbirth, to menopause. Symptoms can include anxiousness, irritability, fatigue, to poor performance from workouts and recovery. Many symptoms are due to an imbalance of women’s hormones. These hormones are estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Of course there is also the common hot flashes that is often seen near menopause (also known as perimenopause). Most conventional medical providers unfortunately are not trained adequately in hormones. They often rely on pills such as antidepressants to mask symptoms, rather than check hormone levels. At Executive Medical, we check your hormones to see if bioidentical hormones are right for you.

Why Bio-identical Pellets?
In our experience, the typical bio-identical delivery methods—i.e. creams, pills, injections and even micronized capsules—cannot provide a steady stream of hormone in your bloodstream twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. That means you are still subject to a roller coaster ride of hormone levels. Patches must be changed often to provide an adequate hormone levels. Since we live in warm Southern California, this can happen quite a bit! Pellets is a safe effective procedure that prevents the ups and downs, giving a steady supply of hormones for months at a time. The procedure takes no longer than 15 minutes.
Why Choose BioTE® Pellets
When we looked at the different type of pellets, we looked for hormone companies that offer precise testing and accurate dosing. We have personally heard and seen pellets that were inaccurate, broken etc leading to suboptimal results. BioTE fit our criteria and then some. They have the accuracy of thousands of satisfied patients in the country. Pellets
are 100% natural and safety is of greatest concern. Balancing hormones properly is a challenging endeavor.
