As you probably know, hormone levels decrease as we age. A tiny change in hormone levels can lead to major problems. Hormones are messengers that travel throughout the bloodstream, transmitting messages from cells to glands concerning development, growth, and energy.
Some of the advantages of HRT include:
When your hormones are in balance, your body can function at an optimal level. However, aging cause hormone levels to decline. Our hormone replacement therapy, also known as HRT, can restore hormonal levels to optimal concentrations.
Bio-Identical Hormones are identical to the molecular formula of hormones created by your own body. The use of bio-identical hormones can increase the levels of hormones such as progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone to youthful levels.
Human Growth Hormones are key to maintaining a youthful appearance. The lace of HGH is often associated with aging, and can lead to obesity, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and decreased immunity. These can be reversed using the proper hormone replacement therapy.
Menopause sees the onset of declining hormones that can negatively impact your day-to-day life, as well as your overall feelings of well-being. Menopausal women often feel “out of sync” as their levels of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone decrease.
Male Menopause is an age-related “change of life” experienced by men. Men can suffer changing hormone levels and lowered testosterone levels that can lead to mental and physical changes.
Testosterone is responsible for muscle mass, libido, and energy level in both men and women. Restoring testosterone to proper levels can lead to a more healthy sex drive, higher energy levels, increased muscle mass, and better mental focus.
Thyroid levels will decrease with age, leading to metabolism and body temperature to lowers. This can contribute to depression and low energy. By implementing our hormone replacement therapy plan, these symptoms are easily and inexpensively counteracted.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is a hormone produced during pregnancy. Interestingly, administer this hormone can increase the sex drive.
