One of the important regulatory systems embedded in your body's apparatus is your hormonal system. It acts as a messenger, designed to interact with specific target cells and organs and provoke a change or result. As we age, hormonal production usually changes, and hormonal imbalance can occur as a result, whether we like it or not. Unbalanced hormonal systems can have a variety of side effects and symptoms.
Dr. Sherman is a Certified BioTE Provider in Woodland Hills, CA.
We are here to help men who are experiencing symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Below you can learn more about the signs and symptoms of male hormonal imbalance and how to face it head on. Facing Hormonal Imbalance in Men for Head On! Hormonal imbalance can happen to anyone, at any age. The most common indicators of hormonal imbalance include obesity, acne, and hair loss. Additionally possible symptoms of hormonal imbalances are: fatigue; poor libido; sleeping too much or not enough (often referred as insomnia), weight gain or loss, erectile dysfunction (ED), mood swings and more.
Hormonal imbalance in women often occurs without them knowing why. Women's health symptoms can range from subtle to debilitating problems. Often the symptoms are masked with different prescription pills prescribed for anxiety, depression, insomnia, weight gain, and more. This is due to your hormonal levels not being checked, as normal hormonals are not optimized. Good news though, BioTE® Medical Therapy treatment is possible.
BioTE® Therapy with Pellets is plant based and uses no synthetics. Learn more about the pellet therapy process. BioTE® Pellets are made from plant based ingredients that mimic the effects of hormonal levels in the body. Find out more about Bio-identical Hormone Therapy.

Some of the emotional symptoms of imbalance in women include continuous fatigue severe enough to be debilitating, foggy thinking, excessive intolerance to exercise, lethargic depression and anxious depression.

Imbalance of your hormonal system can occur at any point in your life. Male imbalance can be brought on by stress, an acute injury or illness, poor nutrition, inadequate exercise and a host of other factors. These glands make up the endocrine system and they are involved in an intricate balance in your body.
Just one gland can wreak havoc throughout the male body with difficult to diagnose symptoms. Low testosterone may be the cause. Just because you have been told your hormone levels are "normal", that does not mean they are optimized.
The symptoms of imbalance are vague and often misdiagnosed and ignored. The only way to know is by getting your hormone checked by a blood test. This can be done in office through testing saliva, blood, blood serum, or urine.
Feel free to call us anytime to learn more information about your options and how we can help you or your loved one manage and reduce risk.

• Menopause symptoms can be managed through education, lifestyle changes, support, and hormone replacement therapy (HRT), also known as menopause hormone therapy (MHT).
• In the first few years after menopause, HRT is an effective treatment for menopausal symptoms. For most women with moderate to severe symptoms, the benefits outweigh the low-risk increases. HRT is an effective therapy for menopausal symptoms, In the early postmenopausal years. For most women with moderate to severe symptoms, the benefits outweigh the low-risk increases.
• The current role of HRT is to relieve symptoms during menopause, at the lowest effective dose and for the shortest time needed to control bothersome menopausal symptoms.
• The decision to use HRT and how long it should be used should be based on assessment and individual needs.
What marks the end of menstruation in a woman's life is menopause. It occurs because a woman stops ovulating (releases a mature egg once a month) and her ovaries stop producing estrogen.
Menopause means “the last period”. It is a natural event that marks the end of the reproductive years, just as the first menstrual period during puberty marks the beginning.
Many, but not all, women experience unpleasant symptoms before and after menopause, such as hot flashes, night sweats, sleep problems, and vaginal dryness. These symptoms and physical changes can be managed in a variety of ways, including lifestyle changes, such as a healthier diet and more exercise, and through HRT.
Hormone Replacement Therapy
HRT, also known as hormone therapy (HT) or hormone therapy for menopause (MHT), is a medicine that contains the estrogen that a woman's body stops producing after menopause. HRT can be used to successfully treat menopausal symptoms.
While HRT reduces the chance of developing some debilitating diseases such as osteoporosis, colon cancer, and heart disease, it can increase the chance of developing a blood clot (when given as tablets) or breast cancer (if some types are used long-term).
A “premature menopause” is when the last menstrual period comes before a woman turns 40. In “early menopause”, the last menstrual period occurs before a woman turns 45 years old. For women with premature or early menopause, HRT is strongly recommended until the average age of menopause (around age 51), unless there is a particular reason for the woman not taking it.
BioTe can be used to treat men and women when their levels drop or become unbalanced. It is most often used to relieve the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. It can also help improve the symptoms of cancer treatment or to treat conditions such as insulin resistance, adrenal and thyroid disorders, fibromyalgia, and osteoporosis.
Bioidentical hormones are artificial and made from plant estrogens that are chemically identical to those in the human body. Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are among the most replicated and used for treatment. Bioidentical hormones come in several forms, including: pills, patches, injections, creams, and gels.
Traditional versus Bioidentical
BioTe differs from traditional hormone therapy (HRT) in that the hormones are chemically identical to those that our body naturally produces and are made from plant estrogens. Hormonals used in traditional HRT are made from the urine of pregnant horses and other synthetics.
BioTE also restores lost energy and vitality while promoting emotional well-being - all with the power of natural hormonal levels. BioTE uses bioindividualized, subcutaneous pellets which are "half life" synthetic and half-life human BHRT pellets that have been tested to ensure safety for patients over time. Each pellet has a unique combination of forms and strengths customized for you to match your specific needs at all times! BioTE can be done every 6 months on an annual basis if needed or as often as necessary depending upon your individual health needs. BioTe is safe and unlike traditional HRT, which has shown a history of increasing the risk of breast cancer in women, and other harmful effects in both men and women.
The benefits of BHRT are usually used when people's age and hormonal levels decrease, especially in perimenopausal or menopausal women. It is used to increase low levels and improve moderate to severe menopause symptoms, including: hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, memory loss, weight gain, sleep problems, loss of interest in sex, or pain during sex reduce the risk of diabetes, tooth loss and cataracts. Evidence suggests that it can help improve skin thickness, hydration and elasticity, and even reduce wrinkles.
For cancer patients who have undergone treatment that affects their estrogen levels, BHRT has been shown to be effective in improving their overall well-being and quality of life. In one study, cancer patients who underwent BHRT found relief from treatment-related symptoms, such as migraines, incontinence, low libido, and insomnia. The study also found that the recurrence rate of breast cancer was not above average.
