“We age largely because our hormones dip or get imbalanced.
Good news is that now you can now balance your hormones without the side effects of the synthetic hormones.
Bio-Identical Hormone replacement therapy has proven benefits.
If we balance our hormones well in time, yes aging can be arrested.
I have seen most men and women ignore some very important signs and symptoms associated with imbalanced or low hormone levels, and they continue to wonder, where did their endless energy enthusiasm happiness and feel good about life vanish!
In women, Progesterone is the first one to go, and as a result, they feel anxious, irritable, depressed, sleepless, mood swings, Period pain, PMS symptoms, hair loss, fatigued etc… this makes them visit a psychiatrist and they have been prescribed an antidepressant and anti-anxiety pills, which they may not need.
In the post and perimenopausal women, Estrogen too starts dipping and they experience a new set of symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, poor sleep, Vaginal dryness, Depressed mood, Foggy thinking, Low energy, Loss of bladder control, Decreased libido etc…
Low testosterone in women can cause, low libido, weight gain, fatigue, thinning/dry hair, depression, pain & fibromyalgia.
Both men and women require hormones to stay healthy both mentally as well as physically.
If hormones are balanced metabolism is active and we are able to prevent many chronic lifestyle diseases.
Therefore it is highly recommended to balance your hormones and stay at top of your health.
Oprah Winfrey says “”menopause caught her “”off guard”” and that she’s taking bio identical hormones that have made a big improvement in how she feels””.
“”After one day on bioidentical estrogen, I felt the veil lift,”” Winfrey writes. “”After three days, the sky was bluer, my brain was no longer fuzzy, my memory was sharper. I was literally singing and had a skip in my step.””
