Hormones Replacement

something small can make a big difference

As we age our sex hormones (ie testosterone, estrogen and progesterone) decrease. (Or is it the depletion of these hormones that cause us to age?) Occurring in both men and women, lack of these hormones can contribute to unwanted symptoms and make us feel older than we want to feel. Women commonly experience menopausal symptoms in their early 50s—hot flashes, weight gain, brain fog and decreased libido. Men, like women, also experience hormone depletion as they age. Called andropause, male menopause or manopause,  20% of males over 50 have low testosterone and often it goes undetected because they brush it off as normal aging. It doesn’t have to be.

Symptoms of hormone imbalance:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety
  • Tension & irritability
  • Lack of sleep
  • Memory loss
  • Depression
  • Brain fog
  • Hot flashes
  • Night Sweats
  • Weight gain
  • Joint pain
  • Decreased sex drive or performance

Rejuvenation from the inside out can be obtained by rebalancing hormone levels. Turn back time. Replacing hormones can often facilitate or allow us to biological achieve that desired age. Hormone replacement provides major symptom relief and protects bones, heart, brain and relationships. Optimal doses of sex hormones contribute to

  • increased energy and vitality
  • improved cognitive clarity, memory and focus
  • enhanced libido and performance
  • reduced body fat
  • increased collagen production in the skin
  • increased muscle and bone strength
  • Lowers total cholesterol and increases HDL (the good cholesterol)
  • Protection of breast, brain, prostate, heart and bone health
  • Increased serotonin and dopamine (happy hormones)

Types of hormone replacement

Synthetic: pills, patches, shots

Bio-identical: pills, patches, creams/gels, pellets
