The hormonal system is extremely delicate, and we know this because even for some women, something as simple as consuming soy products can affect their systems, similar to a birth control pill. When your hormones aren’t balanced, that imbalance affects every area of your life, but it doesn’t have to. At Inner Vitality, located in Bellevue, WA, we offer Hormone balance/BHRT that will improve every area of your life, from your physical to emotional to mental well-being.
What Is Hormone Balance/BHRT?
BHRT stands for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. It is a therapy designed for men and women whose hormone levels have dropped below what is considered optimal and has led to many different negative symptoms.
This therapy uses bioidentical hormones that are a near-perfect, identical match to the hormones the body produces naturally. This treatment has helped many men and women get their lives back and improve their overall state of being.
When men experience hormonal imbalance, it’s largely due to testosterone deficiencies. Low testosterone causes many different symptoms and can affect a man’s everyday life. It results in symptoms like low libido, weight gain, chronic fatigue, mood changes, depression, anxiety, inability to gain lean muscle mass, poor skin complexion, and sleep problems, to name a few.
Men’s Health Improvements
Increasing testosterone levels to what is considered optimal obliterates these symptoms and results in many benefits. Men who undergo treatment experience increased energy, healthy weight loss, increased sex drive, the ability to gain muscle mass, and many other benefits. BHRT can transform their lives and replace fatigue with vibrancy.
Hormone Balance and Age
BHRT can give you a life full of energy and a new sense of vitality. Hormone balance/BHRT can improve every realm of a man’s life, emotional, mental, and physical. Many men begin to experience the effects of low testosterone during the stage of life called andropause, which typically happens between the age of 40 and 50.
However, low testosterone can also affect men in their 20s due to genetics or other health conditions. Whatever the case, we can help raise your levels and help you experience true vitality.
Most women begin to experience the signs of hormone imbalance during menopause. Menopause results in some unpleasant symptoms that can last for years if left untreated. Some of the main symptoms include hot flashes, bloating, weight gain, fatigue, mood changes, depression, and accelerated aging, among others.
Addressing Menopause and Other Hormone Imbalances
Addressing these symptoms with hormone balance/BHRT can help you fight the signs of aging and everything negatively associated with menopause. It allows you to replace your symptoms with vitality.
Menopause is not the only reason that women seek out hormone treatment. Sometimes multiple pregnancies can tax your body and lead to hormonal imbalances. Whatever your reason, we can help you by restoring the necessary hormones to look and feel more youthful and have the energy to live your life to the fullest every day.
How Does It Work?
This treatment raises your hormones to levels that are optimal and will help resolve your negative symptoms. Your treatment will begin with a consultation during which we will evaluate your condition, discuss your symptoms, and perform diagnostics to determine exactly where your levels are.
We can perform different types of tests to obtain your hormone levels, including blood and saliva tests. Once we determine that you are a candidate for treatment, we will choose the best method to balance your hormones.
What Kind of Methods Provide Hormone Balance?
BHRT comes in many different shapes and sizes. One method is not superior to another; each has a specific design and a different purpose. When we choose the right method for you, we consider several factors, including your hormone levels, goals, and lifestyle. Some of the different methods include hormone creams applied topically, testosterone injections that are injected at time-specific intervals, and pellet therapy.
Pellet therapy is growing in popularity among men and women alike for its effectiveness and efficiency. Pellets are made of natural, bioidentical hormones and are very small in size. During treatment, your provider will create a tiny incision in the fatty tissue near your hip and insert the pellet, and then suture the incision. The body will absorb the pellet and its hormones will flow directly into the bloodstream.
Treatments are quick and only last five to ten minutes. Most patients only require a few visits each year to maintain the most stable hormone levels. During an initial consultation, we’ll discuss your symptoms and your goals to determine if pellet therapy is the best option for you. Pellet therapy is dosed for your unique needs, and pellets are inserted every few months for optimal results.
The BHRT Difference
We take the guesswork out of the hormone equation, so all you have to do is show up for your appointment, and we will take care of the rest. We will monitor for you along the way to make sure your levels are where they should be.
Who Is a Candidate?
The best candidates for this treatment are those who are tired of living with the symptoms of hormone imbalance and want to experience a full life unhindered by depression, weight gain, and all of the other negative symptoms that accompany hormone deficits. If you think that you’re not old enough to qualify for hormone replacement therapy, think again.
Sometimes hormone levels can drop due to other reasons aside from menopause or andropause. Whatever the case, we will determine whether this treatment is right for you during your initial consultation here at our office when you meet with one of our experts.

Once you begin this treatment, you’ll be amazed at just how important balance is, especially when it comes to hormones. You can live a symptom-free, balanced life; you just need to make a choice.
