Just because your hormones naturally decline as you get older does not mean you should succumb to the process.

Replace the thought “Our hormone levels decrease because we age” with the thought that “We age because our hormone levels decrease”.   Strive to live the most vigorous life possible regardless of whether you’re in your 20’s or your 60’s!!

What does Hormone Optimization do?

Hormone Optimization Therapy provides you with the same natural hormones as those found in your body throughout your entire life. When you age, your body produces less of them. Hormone Optimization replaces the hormones that your body recognizes. It’s a more natural course of treatment that works with your body and is more in line with how you can best restore balance which is fundamentally important for your overall health as you get older.

Why Is Hormone Replacement Important?

Hormonal Decline = Accelerated Aging

Your natural decline in hormone levels can contribute to degenerative illness and age-related loss of physical and mental function. One of the biggest fears people have, other than death, is losing the ability to care for themselves and function normally as they get up there in age. Rightfully so!! I don’t know about you, but I want to maintain the best quality of life possible for the remainder of it!

Hormone replacement isn’t designed to increase lifespan, but to improve your health. The goal is to delay and decrease your risk of the typical diseases of aging, like:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Diabetes

Is hormone optimization the only option for treating declining hormone levels?

Definitely not. Depending on just how deficient your hormone levels are, balancing them may only require simple lifestyle adjustments like exercising a specific way, and changing your dietary and nutritional consumption. Although hormone optimization is a viable option, it’s definitely not the only one.

Think of hormonal decline as anything else that happens to your body that you would get treated for (i.e. vision, hearing, dental, etc.).

Don’t let an attitude towards aging keep you from living your life to the fullest!
