Aging is a natural part of life. But when it comes to aging, you have the power to choose how and when you age. While the process can’t ever stop, you can slow down the effects of aging on your body. At Ageless Integrated Medicine, we have a variety of natural medicines and therapies to help you get your spark back. With hormone replacement therapy, you can restore youthfulness and begin to feel like your old self again.
Background Information on HRT
In recent years, hormone replacement therapy has risen in popularity. And with the payoff for people who receive HRT, it’s clear to see why. Hormones control a significant amount of bodily functions. When you get older, the amount of hormones found in your body naturally decreases. As your hormone levels decrease, things you used to feel enthusiastic about no longer seem as exciting to you. While this is a common occurrence in aging populations, it’s less common in those who partake in HRT.
At AIM, we use bio-identical hormones that are derived from plants, like yams or soy. We use testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, melatonin, and DHEA in many of our hormone replacement therapy patients. Most of these hormones work for both men and women. Additionally, they play an important role in different parts of your body, including the brain, the heart, bones and with immune functions. Some of the positives of hormone replacement include a healthy sexual function, a slowing down of the aging process, improved memory and sleep function.
HRT for Women
When women think of getting older, they typically associate it with menopause. While that certainly is a sign of getting older, it’s not when hormone replacement therapy should start. In most women, hormone levels start to decline in their mid-to-late 30s. For some, it’s even their late 20s when hormone levels start decreasing. This happens for a variety of reasons, but some of the most common include poor eating habits and stress. When hormone levels start decreasing, that’s the perfect time to start HRT.
At AIM, you’ll receive supervised hormone treatments. Not only does it help slow down the aging process, you’re also protecting yourself from degenerative diseases that happen when you get older, including Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease & osteoporosis, which is common in older women.
HRT for Men
Men also benefit from hormone replacement therapy. Did you know that men have their own version of menopause? It’s called andropause and it’s a time where testosterone levels decrease. This tends to happen when men are in their 40s and 50s. With HRT for men, their hormone levels return to levels found in many men who are in their mid-to-late 20s and early 30s. Additionally, you gain more protection from heart attacks and strokes.
Don’t let getting older slow you down. With hormone replacement therapy, you can naturally restore your youthfulness and get your hormone levels back in order. At Ageless Integrated Medicine, we believe that hormone replacement therapy improves your quality of life. See what hormone replacement therapy can do for you.
