If you experience the signs and symptoms of hormone imbalance, bioidentical hormone therapy in Novato can restore your body’s optimal and youthful hormone levels.

Signs of Hormone Imbalance
in Men and Women

The human body is made up of several types of cells, each with their own specific function. In order for these cells to work properly, they must be able to communicate with each other. They do this by releasing chemicals called hormones into the bloodstream. Hormones are like messengers that travel through the blood and tell the cells what to do. They tell the cells when to grow, when to reproduce, and how to function. Sometimes, the body can produce too much or too little of a certain hormone, leading to a hormone imbalance. Hormone imbalances can wreak havoc on the human body, and both men and women are susceptible to their effects.

For women, hormone imbalance can cause irregular periods, hot flashes, weight gain, anxiety, depression, and fertility problems.

For men, hormone imbalance can cause erectile dysfunction, low libido, hair loss, fatigue, and depression.

Treat Imbalances In Hormones

Not being able to produce testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen due to reasons like menopause, aging, surgery, or a traumatic injury can cause you to feel different.

Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance include:

  • Fatigue
  • Mood swings
  • Weight gain or loss
  • Irregular periods
  • Hot flashes or night sweats
  • Hair loss or thinning
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Insomnia
  • Dry skin or vaginal dryness
  • Difficulty concentrating or remembering
  • Among other symptoms

Biote Pellet Therapy:
What is it?

Biote Method is a form of hormone optimization that involves the use of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) pellets. These pellets contain either testosterone or estrogen, which the body recognizes as identical to its natural hormones.

What are the pellets?

  • Have a size similar to a grain of rice
  • Are inserted under the skin
  • Get absorbed into the body as required to optimize hormone levels
  • Are precisely dosed to meet the unique needs of each patient

How Soon Can You Expect Results from BHRT Pellet Therapy?

Many patients who undergo BHRT pellet therapy experience relief within four weeks or even earlier, while others may notice the most significant benefits after their second insertion.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy FAQs

How is bioidentical hormone replacement done?

BHRT can be administered in a variety of ways, including creams, gels, pills, patches, and more. The method of administration for your hormone therapy in Novato will depend on the specific condition being treated. However, the most effective form of administration is a subcutaneous pellet inserted underneath your skin. The hormone pellet releases a steady stream of the chosen hormones to supplement your body’s natural hormone production, thus avoiding peaks and valleys in hormone levels.

How long do the hormone pellets last?

How long your hormone pellets last depends on numerous factors. Age, activity level, metabolism, and other factors affect the longevity of hormone pellets. The average is 3-4 months, but some people may need them every 2 months and some may only need them every 6 months. Your medical provider will determine how often you need hormone pellets.

Marin Regenerative Clinic in Novato offered me a chance to heal my right knee and to enjoy my life without pain. Endless thanks to Dr Scharf and her wonderful team! All doctors before told me I need a knee replacement, and because I was too young, was not recommended the surgery before 65 yrs old. After 5 sessions of treatment and 5 shots (very painful, even Kate tried her best🙂) with stem cells in my knee, I feel like I received a brand new rigjt knee. I don't have pain anymore, I am lot more confident when I'm walking, the knee is lot more stable, and finally I can enjoy a more sportive life, which I avoided since 1992, since my knee injury. Compared with the price I have to pay for a knee replacement, and counting the pain which come with that surgery, I think the price I paid for all my treatment here was lot better. It's not cheap, but after all, you get what you pay for. I got back my knee, after 31 years, and I saved other years of pain, until a knee replacement would be possible in my case. I'm happy to find this place! Thank you for all!❤️👍🏻

I have had such a positive experience working with Dr. Scharf and the team at Marin Regenerative Health. They were flexible and accommodating for my intake evaluation, took the time to really understand the issues with my back and neck, and created a clear plan of action to support my recovery. I was pleasantly surprised to see that this office isn't just for chiropractic work, but was also well equipped with modern technology / equipment to support all types of body recovery, healing, flexibility and strength building. Dr. Scharf is also very kind and it is clear that she is an expert in this field. I felt immediate trust in what they recommended and appreciated that they evaluate all aspects of life to support body recovery and well-being (food intake, etc). I only wish I found Marin Regenerative Health before I had my injury. I will be going to for both recovery and holistic health / body management moving forward.

I came to Marin Regenerative Health believing I had neuropathy. I had paid and was treated for this condition at another clinic!Dr Scharf ran some tests, including X-rays which determined that my problem lay in my spine, which had compressed. This was the cause of my discomfort, pains and aches and most of all, numbness to my fingers and arms!The doctors and professional team at this clinic have been “defrosting “ me .Since I began treatment a month ago, I have experienced much healing in my whole body! The numbness has eased, some 80% better and I am experiencing more pain-free movements! I look forward to more progress!I must say that I am enjoying a wholesomeWellness overall!Thanks to Marin Regenerative Health I can face each new day, positively!⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have been a patient with Dr. Sharf for about a year and a half and am really looking to more visits to this very healing place. My knees and ankle have been in a very arthritic place. I was looking at knee and ankle replacements. With Dr. Sharf's help both my knees are doing well and my ankle is coming along. Clearly regeneration instead of replacement is the new way forward. Dr. Sharf is very caring and informative about health techniques. Very positive to be a part of.Caring clean and very up to date, I recommend Marin Regenerative !!

I had chronic knee pain and issues walking correctly when I came to Marin Regen Health. My knee had some painful accident impact issues and nerve damage from my teenage years of riding horses. I have early osteoarthritis which is normally an older age issue, but because of my injuries it was causing issues now. No other doctors had any solutions for me, and some didn’t even correctly tell me my MRI results in the beginning of my diagnosis process. After having a consult with Sarah we decided on a plan for me. We did a stem cell injection along with supplements for my inflammation, and light therapy for my nerve damage, and chiropractic adjustments along the way. It has all worked very well for me and I’m no longer needing my knee brace. I continue to get chiropractor adjustments from Sarah which is helping me keep aligned while I am now strengthening my leg muscles. Thank you again!

I had a series of knee injections at Marin Regenerative over a five week period ending early January 2021. Excellent experience, very professional, courteous, and completely satisfied with overall results. I had difficulty walking due to severe right knee joint pain, coupled with left knee replacement. It is now approaching mid-February and joint pain has not returned. Quality service coupled with state-of-the-art equipment helped make my experience exceed expectations. Thanks Marin Regenerative!
