We all have some sort of stress in our lives. Whether it is from work or our personal lives, stress seems to also grow and have a greater effect on our bodies. At Rejuvalife Vitality Institute in Beverly Hills, we are committed to treating patients both inside and out. Sometimes the effects of stress can affect our bodies in ways we don’t expect, such as harming our immune systems, cause a mental fog and even sexual dysfunction.
Can Stress Have Long-Term Effects?
If the stress you are experiencing stays with you long term, it can lead to a variety of health conditions:
- Anxiety, depression or other mental health conditions
- Cardiovascular disease
- Sexual dysfunction
- Skin aging and hair loss
- Mental Fog
How Can the Effects of Stress be Treated?
One of the ways Dr. Berger likes to start with patients who are under a lot of stress is by assessing their free cortisol and DHEA levels. This is one of the key steps in the Rejuvalife Stress Management program. If you are found to be deficient in cortisol, Dr. Berger may decide to supplement you with safe custom doses. Cortisol is the hormone that helps the body to manage stress in a smoother way. Once some of the side effects of stress begin to subside, your mental clarity and the sound relaxed state will return.
Weight, Nutrition & Fitness
If stress is affecting your waistline, which in turn may affect you in other ways; you may be looking for guidance on how you can address this and feel like yourself again. During a private consultation with Dr. Berger, you can discuss with him what your goals are and work together to create either a weight loss or a nutrition and fitness plan in Los Angeles to suit your lifestyle. Rejuvalife’s comprehensive lifestyle management programs are fully customizable to your lifestyle and help you get to the root of the problem the healthy way.
After a consultation with Dr. Berger, he may conclude that your stress could be better managed with the addition of hormone treatment. As we age, our bodies tend to stop producing as much of the vital hormones that are responsible for keeping us happy, healthy and young looking. At Rejuvalife, we offer hormone treatments for Low T, Women with menopause and those in need of human growth hormone.
