A dozen members of the Harker Heights Chamber of Commerce attended the monthly Women in Business meeting Jan. 25 at Modoc Family Clinic.

Larry Medcalf of bioTE in Austin gave options for correcting pre-menopausal, post-menopausal and low testosterone symptoms. BioTE markets bio-identical hormones that are plant-derived and chemically changed in a laboratory until they are identical to what the body naturally produces, according to the bioTE website.

“Hormones allow you to be fully balanced in mind, body, emotionally,” Medcalf said. “Hormones help the body return to a normal balance. A bio-identical hormone compressed into pellets and inserted into the fatty part of the buttocks provides the balance needed when we get older.”

The meeting was hosted by Modoc physicians Annmarie McKenna and Jeremy Swain. Swain provides osteopathic medicine and preventive medical services and is certified by bioTE.

“Just like oil in a car needs to be changed, hormones work in the same manner.” Swain said. “If you take care of your body you can go a long time. At 80 years of age you can feel as good as you felt at 50 years. It makes you stay healthy and not feel old. The day after I was pelleted I went out hunting.”

The next Women in Business meeting is at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 15 at Courtyard Marriott in Killeen.
