Therapy Naturally Addresses Symptoms of Hormone Decline

While it’s natural for our bodies to produce fewer hormones as we age, there’s also a natural way to reduce the resulting symptoms, says gynecologist Karen Kennedy, M.D. Her private practice in Gulf Breeze and Navarre offers BioTE Hormone Pellet Therapy to address physical symptoms associated with hormone decline, such as difficulty sleeping, weight gain, joint pain and night sweats, as well as mental and emotional symptoms such as anxiety and irritability, depression, low libido, memory loss and extreme fatigue.

“My greatest goal as a physician is to provide my patients with alternative choices that will enhance their health and well-being,” she says. “I’ve decided that BioTE hormone therapy is the right choice for my patients, because restoring and balancing their hormones can make a significant difference in their quality of life.”

The therapy has been shown to be effective and relatively safe, without the harmful side effects of chemical hormones, and studies have shown that bioidentical therapy including testosterone may reduce the risk of breast cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis and mental decline, Kennedy says.

BioTE therapy doesn’t just benefit menopausal women, and it’s not a one-size-fits-all approach to hormone balancing, she adds. “Hormone imbalance can occur at any age. Whether you’re a man or a woman, if you have any of the physical or mental symptoms, you may be a candidate for BioTE therapy. I can individualize a plan to make sure it’s right for you.”
