Prevent Aging With Balanced Hormones

Aging is not a disease, it’s a natural process.  However, aging can be managed, with the desired result of preventing age-related disease.  Western medicine is reactionary.  In order to delay the aging process, we need to take three main actions: 1) keep hormones in balance 2) eat well 3) exercise.  We hear about eating well and exercising all of the time, but do not hear much about keeping hormones in balance.  The hormones in men start to decrease at age 30, and start to fluctuate in women, causing changes in our bodies. 

Decreases and changes in hormones cause:

  • Decreased energy
  • Weight gain
  • Decreased libido
  • Cognitive decline
  • Reduction in sleep

Physicians that are specially trained in Age Management medicine act as a “body mechanic”.  They order and look at the results of blood work to see what is low (hormones), and replace it.  Essentially balancing out the hormones to what they should be.  These hormones that are replaced need to be in the form of bio-identical hormone therapy. 

Why don’t we hear much about hormone replacement from physicians?

  1. Some don’t believe in hormone replacement
  2. Some don’t know enough about it to believe in it or not believe in it.
  3. Some follow guidelines issued by American College of Gynecology (ACOG) & North American Menopause Society (NAMS).  However, the research done by SCOG & NAMS shows the benefit of bio-identical hormone therapy
