Hormone

Do YOU have any symptoms of hormone imbalance? If the answer is yes, Stop Suffering!

It is time to live life to the fullest.

As a result of hormone imbalance you may be experiencing one or a combination of what have become known as the classic symptoms of aging:

  • Weight gain
  • Limited energy
  • Hair loss
  • Low sex drive
  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Sleeplessness
  • Poor concentration
  • Memory loss
  • Fatigue

Almost all of us over the age of 40 (and now in some cases mid to late 20’s) begin to experience hormone imbalance. Over our lifetime, we are exposed to environmental and dietary toxins, which contribute to the natural decline of hormones as we age. In order to balance your hormones for optimal health and wellness, it is critical to be evaluated by a highly trained practitioner – including comprehensive lab testing and in depth initial questionnaires – prior to creating a personalized treatment plan.

Hormones are chemical messengers that are secreted directly into the blood, which carries them to organs and tissues of the body to exert their functions. There are many types of hormones that act on different aspects of bodily functions and processes. Hormones are essential for life, and in many instances, they are important for the quality of life.

Both men and women will see levels of their essential hormones decline with age. In women, the loss of the hormones estrogen, progesterone and testosterone lead to a condition of aging called menopause. In men, the decline in the hormone testosterone leads to a condition known as andropause, or more commonly “Low-T.”

Most people understand that with the decline in hormone levels, men and women can experience numerous symptoms that can affect their sex lives. However, may people are unaware that hormone imbalance is not just about sex! The loss of the hormonal balance that occurs with aging has also been associated with cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, osteoporosis, thyroid conditions, many cancers and a host of other medical conditions.

Bio-identical hormone replacement is designed to replace the hormones to levels that normally exist in youthful men and women. Optimizing levels of these natural substances may lower the risks of the many diseases of aging, promote longevity and may restore a vitality that might have seemed to be lost and gone forever.
