Everything You Need to Know about Hormone Balancing
As we age, our body’s hormones will adapt and change to match our stages in life. These changes to our body can help fairly comfortably with little to no imbalances, but sometimes they can be uncomfortable and bothersome with the symptoms they produce.
Some of these symptoms may include hot flashes, nightly sweats, weight gain, sleeping problems, low sexual libido, mood swings such as irritability, digestive problems, irregular menstrual cycles, anxiety, depression, or fatigue. These symptoms can be a sign that you have a hormonal imbalance.
So how can you help these changes be less uncomfortable and alleviate its symptoms? That’s where hormone balancing therapy comes into play.
What is Biote® Hormone Balancing?
Biote® hormone balancing therapy is a natural way to boost your metabolism, increase lean muscle mass, and improve recovery time to help you burn fat and get the most out of your fitness routine!
A simple blood test at Joy Wellness Partners can show how helpful BHRT may be for you! Optimized hormone levels improve sex drive and mood (fighting symptoms of anxiety and depression) for both sexes.
They reduce symptoms such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and improve symptoms of PMS and menopause in women. In men, optimal hormone levels improve symptoms such as sexual function (ED), rejuvenate thinning hair, and fight muscle weakness.
Both men and women can expect to sleep better, feel more rested, and think more clearly with Biote®. Bio-identical hormones (derived naturally from plant sources) have the same molecular structure as human hormones, they also have far fewer side effects than their predecessor, synthetic hormones, or other prescription medications.

How does Biote® Hormone Balancing work?
Prior to treatment, the client will complete a blood test, and work with us on a comprehensive hormone analysis to determine if hormone balancing is the best treatment for them. The hormone balancing procedure begins with anesthetization of the skin. Then, pellets from a plant-based source, which contain bioidentical estrogen and/or testosterone, are inserted into the skin. The insertion takes place at the gluteus or abdomen. Estrogen and testosterone from the pellets are dispersed throughout the body naturally.
Where do the pellets come from?
We use Biote® Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy to source the pellets that we use for hormone balancing. Biote® pellets are the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 4 to 6 months, without any “roller coaster” effect. The pellets contain a natural plant source of estrogen or testosterone.
What is the advantage of Biote®?
Bioidentical hormones, such as the ones used in Biote® work with the chemistry of the body because they closely replicate the molecular structure of the hormones that normally occur within the body.
How long will the procedure take?
The entire procedure will take less than one hour.
How soon will I notice results?
While the timeline of the treatment varies depending on the client, the client should start to feel the benefits of the treatment, including increased mental clarity and energy levels among other benefits, within a week of the procedure.
How long do benefits last?
While each pellet insertion will sustain optimal hormone levels for three to four months for a woman, and five to six months for a man, the client should reap benefits for up to 24 months following the treatment.
