As we age, many of us begin to notice a decline in our quality of life. Whether it is less energy to take part in the activities you enjoy, poorer quality sleep that leaves you too tired to make it through the day or the silent creeping of unwanted weight gain, life as we enter middle-age can become just not what it used to be. Middle-age brings about many changes in our bodies, and one of those changes is declining hormone levels. Testosterone in men and estrogen in women are responsible for keeping us youthful and healthy, but unfortunately, levels of these very important hormones decline with age. Bio-identical hormone replacement can help replenish levels of these hormones in men and women and bring back your zest for life.
Low energy, weight gain, decreased strength, reduced sex drive and sexual dysfunction are common complaints among men with low testosterone levels. Women who enter menopause can suffer from many of those same symptoms, as well as hot flashes, trouble sleeping, memory problems and more.
A Natural Solution
Bio-identical hormone replacement involves the administration of hormones that are chemically identical to the natural hormones produced by your body. This means that your body will respond to and benefit from bio-identical hormone replacement in the same way it does from your own natural hormones.
Bio-identical hormone replacement has many positive effects on the body. Declining hormone levels can affect you physically, mentally, and emotionally. Replenishing these levels naturally means that you are addressing all of these crucial dimensions of your well-being.
A Positive Boost
Some of the benefits that you can expect to see from bio-identical hormone replacement are increased energy, weight loss and better quality sleep. You might even notice a more youthful appearance since hormones can affect the tone and quality of skin in both men and women. Both men and women could notice a boost in libido and sexual functioning.
There are also positive emotional benefits associated with bio-identical hormone replacement. Depression and anxiety are commonly reported as a part of the aging process. Bio-identical hormones can help boost your mood and give you an overall more positive outlook on life so that you can tackle all of the challenges of your day.
