Easing the Burden – How BioTE® Medical is helping Veterans Carry the Load
I have done a lot of runs for causes over the years but the Carry the Load organization touches me deeply. The organization and its Memorial Day event pay tribute to our service men and women. As I do my eight miles, I realize that these men and women have the courage to do what I have never done. As a result, they carry a load I have never had to bear.
These individuals gave willingly to a cause much greater than themselves; but somehow, that was not enough. The cause wanted more from them and it took it. Their service to our nation as military personnel, police officers, firefighters, chaplains, and paramedics exacts a heavy toll in many different ways, some invisible and haunting. They carry a heavy load.
Recently, I learned about a breakthrough treatment that is showing promising results for veterans who are experiencing symptoms of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). BioTE® Medical has been doing a study using bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to help treat symptoms of PTSD and TBI. Tiny pellets, about the size of a grain of rice, are inserted just below the surface of the skin. They are cardio-activated to release hormones the same way our bodies release them naturally. This keeps hormone levels steady for up to five or six months. This kind of hormone regulation can help improve sleep, reduce mood swings, anxiety, night sweats, hot flashes, and a host of other challenging symptoms experienced by PTSD and TBI sufferers.
Early study results are encouraging and this specific treatment for veterans is often covered through insurance. In this blog, I would ask you to please share this information with everyone you know because someone knows someone who might be looking for this kind of relief.

In the meantime, please take a moment to say a prayer of gratitude and another one of healing for all of our veterans and active-duty service men and women. It doesn’t matter if you know someone personally or not because we are all connected in this world and what happens to one person touches everyone.
