Studies show that to feel more energetic, vibrant, and at our best, we need to restore our bodies to optimum functioning. One way to do this is through hormone replacement therapy which helps us regain youthful levels of vital hormones. This therapy modulates hormonal and metabolic balance to optimal level, so our bodies can operate at their strongest, healthiest and most efficient levels. Among others, here are some of the benefits:
- Improved energy and psychological well being
- Decreased fat and increased lean muscle mass
- Decreased blood pressure and improved cholesterol profile
- Improved bone-mineral density and skin tone
- Enhanced memory and brain responsiveness
- Improved Sex Drive
Men experience andropause which is an age-related decline in testosterone. It is a medical condition and treatment is available. This testosterone decline occurs gradually over a thirty year period. The symptoms become more apparent and they include increased fatigue both in the morning and at night, decreased interest in sex, increased irritability, and increased risk for cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and prostate cancer.
It’s not stress. It’s hormone imbalance.
Often men chalk these changes up to stress at work or financial pressures at home, but the fact is an age-related decline in testosterone is a medical condition and treatment is available. Common symptoms include: negative attitudes about life in general, a loss of focus and drive, questioning one’s values and accomplishments, decreased libido, depression, and even cognitive impairments. Physical changes can also occur and are characterized by thinning hair, a decline in lean muscle tissue and an increase in body fat. A decrease in bone mass is another major problem associated with declining levels of testosterone. In fact recent studies have shown that up to 30% of men over 6o have problems with osteoporosis, and one out of every six men will fracture a hip as a result of decreased bone density.
