Balanced hormones are necessary for good health and disease prevention for women and men as we age. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy from Progressive can help. Hormone therapy is not just for libido. Hormones are critical for the brain, heart and bones. Even the gut responds favorably to hormone therapy.
Hormone health is about total person health. One of the reasons that hormones can be so clinically useful and can even help with “Youthification” is because they turn on our own antioxidant systems in our body.
Many of us think once we are older we should just be more tired, or maybe we should just gain more weight. We write off feeling good to be a natural consequence of aging.
Some women may feel great with high levels of hormones, while another feels better with moderate levels. Identifying hormonal balances with laboratory testing is the first step in resolving the symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances.
Bioidentical Hormones are often suggested as an effective form of natural hormone therapy. The most effective hormones are those the body makes itself, and so strengthening that process often makes the most sense when possible.
A large part of integrative medicine is the community. As an active part of our community, we routinely collaborate with other clinics, share information, and work together to make sure that all our patients have the best information possible.
Hormones are the oil in our engine. With age, they naturally decline. This doesn’t mean we have to dwindle in energy and be destined to feel like a dried-up leaf waiting to hopeless fall from a tree.
