Hormones rejuvenate, regenerate and restore. They serve as powerful chemical messengers sent to specific cells throughout your body to orchestrate many of your body’s internal functions and how your organs behave. Even a small fluctuation in levels can cause big changes in cells or even disrupt the balance throughout your entire body.
We lose the majority of our hormones during our 40′s and 50′s. Research repeatedly points to the relationship between the hormonal imbalance of menopause and andropause (in men) and an increased risk for developing cancer, osteoporosis, stroke, thyroid malfunction and other age-related disorders. You’re also more likely to experience problems like depression, anxiety, memory loss, hot flashes, sleep disturbances, libido issues, and sexual dysfunction, to name just a few.
One of the secrets to maintaining health and vitality as you age is ensuring hormones remain at optimum levels and properly balanced. Restoring these hormones using bioidentical hormones through a medically supervised bioidentical hormone replacement therapy program can help offset some of the changes associated with aging, improving your quality of life.
