An exciting revolution in science and medicine focuses on the prevention of the aging process. It is now possible to stop much of the undesirable aspects, symptoms and diseases associated with aging. One of the most important preventive therapies in this new paradigm of care is hormone supplementation with bioidentical hormones. Hormones are substances produced by endocrine glands to regulate numerous body functions like body temperature, reproduction, growth, metabolism and immune function. Essentially a hormone is a chemical messenger that instructs our organs on how to function. A healthy body produces more than 100 different types of hormones. Men and women feel healthy, young and sexy, when hormone levels are high.
As the levels of hormones decline so do our physical and mental capabilities. The amount of hormones in our bodies is directly proportionate to how fast we age.

The Impact of Declining Hormones
During perimenopause as well as menopause women lose height, get weaker, lose mental functioning as well as their sexual drive, and notice drying and wrinkled skin as well as decreased sensitivity to touch. Male menopause is commonly referred to as andropause, and is marked by a decline in sexual function. The symptoms of menopause and andropause can be reversed via restoring the hormones to youthful levels.
As this hormone decline happens our overall health and immune system begins to decline. We lack the vitality, energy, strength, physique we once had and we get fatigued easier. As a result of hormone decline many people don’t feel well, although they are not clinically diagnosed as having a particular condition. The deterioration seen in normal aging, results in coronary artery disease, muscle atrophy, osteoporosis, sleep disorders, depression, and mood disorders. Much of this is caused by a decrease in hormones. By restoring these hormones to their youthful levels it is now possible to strengthen and bolster our bodies as well as our minds. We can improve and reverse many symptoms and signs that we have come to associate with aging. We can also regain the youthful resilience, which protects us from the stressors of daily life.
Replenishment of these hormones to optimal, physiological levels has been shown to alleviate these age-related changes. Treated correctly people look and feel better as they lose weight, increase muscle mass, increase libido, increase arousal, increase orgasm, and get rid of their depression.
Bioidentical hormones are safe and effective natural products. These natural hormones have the exact same molecular structure as the hormones made in the human body. Therefore they produce the same physiologic responses as the body’s own hormones and are metabolized safely.
Bioidentical hormones have been available for over 20 years. They are so lacking in side effects that they are frequently sold over the counter as nutrient supplements like melatonin, vitamin D3, DHEA and pregnenolone.
Natural hormones are a virtually risk-free and effective alternative to synthetic hormones. Synthetic estrogens e.g. are still being made from horse urine and have been known for years to cause an increase in blood clots, heart attacks, stroke, and breast cancer. It has been scientifically determined that women taking hormones derived from horses have an increased rate of cancer. Further side effects associated with synthetic estrogen and synthetic progesterone include weight gain, heart disease and stroke.
