Aging is a natural process, but sometimes you want to age on your terms. At Ageless Integrated Medicine, we understand that. We provide our patients with the ability to age on their terms with natural, holistic medicine. One option our patients take advantage of is hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Hormone replacement therapy benefits you if you want to improve your quality of life as you age. Not only does HRT improve your quality of life, it has a plethora of other health benefits.
Lessens Your Chance of Chronic Illness
As you get older, many people worry about getting chronic illnesses, like heart disease, hip fractures and dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Several studies have shown that the risk of getting those chronic diseases decreases among patients who receive hormone replacement therapy. With hormone replacement, not only does your quality of life increase, but your chances of getting those debilitating illnesses decreases. At AIM we use natural, Bio-identical hormones only. HRT helps increase your hormone levels that tend to decrease as you age.
Restoration of Healthy Sexual Function
As you age, have you noticed a decreased sex drive and low libido? That’s another part of the aging process that many people experience. With hormone replacement therapy, healthy sexual function is restored. Many patients report feeling better overall and that their libido has increased during hormone replacement therapy. If you’re experiencing low sex drive, you may want to consider HRT as a natural treatment plan.
Enhances Your Immune System
In addition to decreasing your chances of heart disease, hip fractures, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, hormone replacement therapy also gives your immune system a boost. Such an increase in your level of immunity, can help you fight off sicknesses like colds or the flu easily. If you find that getting older has made you more susceptible to getting sick, hormone replacement therapy may help.
Improves Memory Function, Mood, and Sleep
Is it harder for you to remember certain things? Are you sometimes in a bad mood and can’t figure out why? Has your quality of sleep decreased as you’ve gotten older? No one wants to live like that. With hormone replacement, your memory begins to improve, your mood stabilizes, and you’ll find you have a better night’s sleep. This is because your hormone levels start to even out again.
Decreases Cholesterol and Fat
As you age, you may notice more fat in places on your body. You may also have trouble keeping your cholesterol at recommended levels. Accumulation of belly fat (visceral fat) is a risk factor for heart attacks, diabetes, stroke and cancer. With hormone replacement therapy, those trends can be reversed. Over a period of time, your cholesterol levels improve and there is a reduction of your body fat especially visceral fat, thereby decreasing your risk of heart attacks, diabetes, stroke and cancer.
