Aging can sometimes feel like it’s synonymous with declining. You seem to be keenly aware of new gray hairs, wrinkles that come out of nowhere, and words on a page that are somehow more blurry than they were yesterday.
A myth about aging though, is that the effects are inevitable. That you somehow have to give up and give in to the process because there’s no way to change it. But that couldn’t be further from the truth! There are many things you can do to influence the aging process. It’s possible to look and feel your best even as you get older.
One of the greatest tools to help fight the aging process is hormone replacement therapy.
What is Hormone Therapy?
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a targeted treatment approach designed to treat hormone imbalance and deficiency. It is intended for both men and women who are experiencing the negative side effects commonly associated with hormone deficiency. Which coincide with the negative aspects of aging.
Medicine has come a long way over the last century. If you think about it, we, as a human population, have only begun experiencing the natural progression of aging over the last hundred years. Just look at the numbers. In 1900, the average life expectancy in the world was 31 years old! Even as recently as 1950, the average life expectancy was only 48. In just over 100 years, with the help of modern medicine, we’ve more than doubled the average life expectancy to 73 years old. Which means more and more of us are finding out what happens as the body ages! Our natural hormones, in particular, drop quite a bit as we age. In both men and women on average, hormone levels begin to decline between the ages 40 and 55.
When our hormones are lower than normal, we can experience a vast number of symptoms and problems. Everything from foggy thinking to trouble remembering…gaining fat around the middle and losing muscle and strength…having trouble sleeping to becoming moody and irritable…noticing a low libido and having difficulty with orgasms. Hormone therapy can help restore your body to optimal functioning by bringing your hormones into balance.
5 Reasons to Consider Hormone Therap
1. Increased energy
Improved energy levels are one of the greatest benefits of hormone therapy. You can feel like your younger self again by simply balancing out your hormones. You can lead a thriving, active, and energetic life. You can rejoin activities and social events you’ve foregone because of fatigue.
2. Weight loss and muscle gain
Fat seems to get more stubborn as the years go by, doesn’t it? Especially belly fat that makes you feel insecure and uncomfortable in clothing. Reaching optimal hormone levels helps you to lose stubborn weight, and gain muscle mass as well.
3. Increased sex drive
Does this one really need an explanation? Probably not! But unfortunately, a common complaint in the aging process is the loss of libido. Which can affect your intimacy with your partner, as well as your self-confidence. Hormone therapy helps you regain the passion that’s been lost by helping to boost your libido.
4. Consistent moods
Going through hormonal changes such as menopause is enough to make you feel like you’re going crazy. Sometimes you may not even recognize the person you’ve become. What you may not realize is that so much of your mood is determined by your hormones. When they are out of whack, so is your mood! Balancing your hormone levels helps to stabilize your mood.
5. Improved cognitive ability
Balanced hormones help to improve cognition. Hormone deficiency leads to poor concentration, memory loss, trouble concentrating, and brain fog. But this isn’t a characteristic of aging that you just have to accept. You can do something about it! Bringing your hormones level to optimal levels will help to reverse these issues and improve overall cognitive ability.
