As we age, our bodies naturally start to reduce the amount of hormones like testosterone and estrogen they produce.
Hormones such as these are incredibly important to how many areas of your body function – such as your brain, heart, bones, reproductive organs, and more.
When these hormones are out of balance, people can experience a number of different symptoms.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a method of restoring the balance of your hormones and aiming to relieve these symptoms by using compounded hormones that are identical in structure to those your body naturally produces.
That way, your body recognizes and uses these replacement hormones in exactly the same way it would hormones it produces naturally.
BHRT can be done through patches, troches, pellets, creams, shots, pills and oils. At Sastun Direct we always carefully explain the options ( with the risks and benefits) and let YOU decide what is best for your hormone replacement needs. We can help you every step of the way!
Sastun Direct is a Biote Certified Provider in Overland Park, KS
We at Sastun Direct have chosen to partner with Biote because we believe our patients deserve the best.
Biote is one of the only hormone optimization companies actively contributing to furthering the science behind hormone optimization. The Biote Method of hormone optimization is the result of condensing over 80 years of scientific research into a program that may help with the earliest signs of aging.
We work with each of our patients on an ongoing basis to analyze their symptoms and lab results using customized dosing to develop a unique, personalized treatment plan for each patient.
The Biote Method uses pellets, which are about the size of a grain of rice, for hormone optimization.
Your provider at Sastun Direct inserts these tiny pellets under the skin during a simple, in-office procedure. The pellets will then dissolve slowly over time – they only need to be re-administered approximately every 3-5 months, depending on the patient. As the pellets dissolve, they release a steady stream of hormones into your bloodstream, and will ultimately be completely absorbed, leaving nothing behind.
Most women see a significant drop in estrogen and testosterone during menopause, while many men may experience a similar phenomenon relating to testosterone, known as andropause.
Hormonal imbalances occur when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream.
Hormones are important for regulating most major bodily processes. Because of their essential role in the body, even the smallest hormonal imbalance can cause side effects throughout the body.
