Bioidentical Hormones Q & A

What are hormones?

The hormones in your body act as chemical messengers that tell your various organs and body systems what to do. Your hormones control many functions including hunger, mood, heartbeat, and libido, to name a few.

Some of the major hormones in your body include:

  • Estrogen
  • Progesterone
  • Testosterone
  • Melatonin
  • Cortisol


A change in your hormone levels can have a significant impact on your quality of life.

What is BHRT?

BHRT is a plant-based form of hormone replacement. The team at Rejuvenate Your Life has found that BHRT is better tolerated and more effective than traditional hormone replacement therapy, which contains synthetic hormones.

Dr. Mejia is a certified BioTE® practitioner. BioTE is a brand of bioidentical hormone replacement that provides customized hormone replacement therapy in pellet form designed to meet your specific hormonal needs. Dr. Mejia offers BHRT for both men and women experiencing hormone imbalance.

Am I a good candidate for BHRT?

The team at Rejuvenate Your Life determines if you’re a good candidate for BHRT after a comprehensive evaluation. The integrative medical practice doesn’t want to just treat your symptoms, but also improve your overall health to improve your quality of life.

Common symptoms that may indicate a hormone imbalance include:

  • Mood changes
  • Fatigue
  • Low libido
  • Erectile dysfunction in men
  • Vaginal dryness in women
  • Weight gain
  • Loss of lean body mass
  • Anxiety and depression


If you’re experiencing these symptoms, or simply don’t feel quite like yourself, call Rejuvenate Your Life today to get answers for your health concerns.

What can I expect with pellet therapy?

Dr. Mejia and his team at Rejuvenate Your Life use pellet therapy to optimize your hormone levels to restore balance and improve your symptoms. With pellet therapy you can expect:

  • More energy and focus
  • Sharper mental performance
  • More motivation
  • Increased libido and improved sexual performance
  • Leaner muscle mass
  • Improve bone strength


Your specialist at Rejuvenate Your Life places the grain-sized pellet under your skin through a tiny incision. The BioTE pellet then provides you with a steady dose of hormones for the next three to six months. The team has you return to the office periodically, so they can monitor your hormone levels and make adjustments as needed.
