Hormone therapy can be approached through many procedures, most of them proven inefficient at treating the underlying cause of the problem. At the biostation we have an approach to hormone therapy that focuses on bioidentical hormone pellet therapy that has a no hassle, no pain, and no risk treatment to restore the optimal hormonal balance within the body.
As we all know, hormones have a different role in men and women, which is why hormone therapy should be a personalized approach instead of a one-size fits all approach.
As men reach middle age, they begin experiencing a series of male menopause symptoms that are mostly the body’s response to low testosterone levels. In some cases, low testosterone levels also place men at higher risks for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, prostate cancer, and other age-related diseases.
Low testosterone levels have been linked to many symptoms that range from physical signs to psychological symptoms, including:
- Decreased libido
- Loss of vitality
- Lowered energy levels
- Memory loss
- Excess abdominal fat
- Weight gain
- Reduces strength
- Lack of concentration
the biostation Testosterone Replacement Therapy vs. Synthetic Testosterone Use
TRT can prove highly useful at treating even the most severe symptoms associated with low testosterone levels. As opposed to synthetic hormones, the biostation uses natural bioidentical hormones found in nature and that are exact replicas of the hormones once produced by your body.
Through a thorough hormonal test, we can check for total free testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), vitamin D, insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), estradiol, and estrogen.
As for TRT treatments, it’s all about finding the one that fits your lifestyle and your preferences. Regardless of the treatment method used, the results will mostly be the same. The most common TRT treatments available are:
- Pellet implants
- Gels and creams

This approach far outweighs any possible consequence linked to TRT treatment.||The use of synthetic testosterone treatments may increase the risk of prostate cancer, coronary artery disease, stroke, and other detrimental effects.|
|The use of gels and creams allows testosterone to be absorbed by the skin, providing a non-invasive alternative to injections.||Most synthetic forms of testosterone treatments are only available through injections, which poses an impediment to those concerned about taking internal medications.|
|Pills are often used to regulate testosterone levels internally. By working with bioidentical hormones, we lower the risk of other substances being blended in the capsules to boost testosterone.||Many synthetic hormonal boosters include other non-natural ingredients that can pose a higher risk for complications for those taking them.|
Menopause is a gradual evolution of low hormone levels that brings an end to fertility. Falling levels of estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone can trigger psychological and physical symptoms that can interfere with a woman’s lifestyle.
During menopause, there are many hormonal imbalances that can take place. The most common ones are:
- High estrogen levels
- Low estrogen and progesterone
- High testosterone
- Low testosterone
- High or low cortisol levels
These hormonal imbalances are partly responsible for the symptoms most women with menopause experience.

Bio-identical hormone therapy can help counteract the symptoms of menopause including weight gain, hot flashes, and mood swings. As opposed to synthetic hormones, bio-identical hormone pellet therapy is created from all-natural plant ingredients, reducing the risk of complications or side effects.

This eliminates the risk of side effects.||Synthetic hormones may increase the risk of uterine cancer, heart attack, deep vein thrombosis, vaginal spotting, and other conditions.|
|The use of pellet therapy as the vehicle to release bioidentical hormones allows reaching optimal hormone levels in a more natural cycle.||Synthetic hormones are often composed of high doses of hormones that can be disruptive to the body’s natural production in hormones, causing a different imbalance.|
|Pellet therapy allows for the use of high-quality, pure, pharmaceutical-grade hormones.||Pills, gels, patches, and injections might include other substance to attempt to boost hormone levels, which means the body is exposed to other substances that can cause an adverse reaction.|
Understanding Human Growth Hormone (HGH)
As we age, our bodies stop producing certain hormones at an optimal level. Human growth hormone is one of those hormones that starts depleting as we age. However, for years HGH has been touted as a controversial hormone, wrongfully used by athletes and bodybuilders to build body mass and enhance performance.
At the biostation, we target HGH through sermorelin therapy, a safer, more efficient alternative to HGH. As opposed to synthetic hormone injections that inject synthetic HGH hormones into your system, the biostation works with sermorelin, a growth hormone-releasing hormone that stimulates production and release of growth hormones by your pituitary gland in a completely natural manner.
Besides the benefits of sermorelin therapy, maintaining optimal levels of human growth hormone has been associated with many health benefits including:
- Improved bone mineral density
- Increased muscle strength
- Better exercise performance
- Increased lean muscle mass
- Enhanced libido
The biostation Sermorelin Therapy Therapy vs. Synthetic HGH Replacement
Sermorelin can help stimulate the production of human growth hormone naturally. Utterly different from HGH therapies that seek to directly replace HGH levels in decline by introducing synthetic growth hormone into the system.
As opposed to artificial HGH hormones, sermorelin is regulated by the pituitary gland, reducing side effects, any potential risk, and ultimately eliminating the risk of overdose.
|the biostation sermorelin therapy||HGH synthetic treatment|
|Sermorelin is a secretagogue, which enables the natural secretion of HGH by the pituitary gland.||Artificial HGH tries to replace HGH in the body directly. This can disrupt your body’s natural production of HGH and create a different hormonal imbalance.|
|There are no side effects, complications, or risks associated with the use of sermorelin to raise HGH levels.||Synthetic HGH hormones have been linked to side effects such as carpal tunnel syndrome, joint, and muscle pain, increased insulin resistance, enlargement of breast tissue in men, and other conditions.|
Natural procedures provide a safer, more efficient alternative to synthetic and risky procedures. The biostation will help balance your hormone levels with a comprehensive and personalized treatment plan.
