Conventional medicine has always held the belief that aging is inevitable and that the progressive deterioration that occurs in our adult years cannot be altered.
This is simply not true.
There is an exciting revolution in science and medicine that identifies aging as a disease process. The downward spiral of physical and mental decline that we have come to accept as a natural part of growing older is becoming recognized as controllable and preventable.
The most effective solution of any disease process is prevention – aging is no exception.
One of the most important treatments for the disease of aging is hormone supplementation. Over the last 50 years, research in the fields of endocrinology and immunology has improved our knowledge as to how and why we age. Hormones serve as messengers from the central nervous system telling out internal organs how to function.
A decrease in the production of hormones begins in middle age and continues to diminish in a linear fashion.
Hormone replacement therapy will not keep us permanently at one age. We will still continue to age and lose cells secondary to a process that is regulated genetically. With hormones we can slow the decline that occurs after mid-life. There will be no sudden falling off in our physical and mental health. There will be a gradual transition that will be much less noticeable than it would be without the hormone replenishment.
The key is to replenish all of the deficient hormones back to a more youthful balance, thereby producing synergistic effect between the hormones.
Which hormones to replenish, how much to replenish and how to adjust the hormones so that they have a synergistic effect is the art and science of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement medicine.
Hormone replacement for men and women is the only therapy that I have seen the can restore energy, make patients feel and function better and provide long term therapeutic protection.
