A NEW ERA IN MEDICINE!

There is an exciting revolution in science and medicine today focusing on optimizing health during the aging process.  Conventional medicine has always held the belief of aging is inevitable and its progressive deterioration cannot be altered.  One of the most important preventative therapies in this new era of care is hormone supplementation.  Because many physicians assume age-related hormonal declines are natural, the medical community as whole has been very slow to offer hormone replacement therapy.   However, researchers from around the world have now shown a hormonal deficiency associated with aging is no different from that of a younger person with a hormonal  imbalance, and should be treated as deftly and as quickly as other hormonal related compilations and diseases.

How and Why We Age

Over the last 65 years, research in the fields of endocrinology and immunology, has improved our knowledge as to how and why we age.  Communication between the nervous, endocrine and immune systems makes it possible for us to adapt and survive in our environment.  Hormones are the messengers between these systems.  Hormones are molecules released into the blood stream to regulate our bodies’ temperature, reproduction, growth, aging and immune function.  As messengers of the central nervous system, hormones instruct our internal organs on how to function.  Unfortunately, both men and women experience a drop in these life-sustaining hormones. 

Symptoms/Diseases of Hormonal Imbalance include:

Weight Gain

Loss of Muscle Mass

Degenerative Diseases (Diabetes, Cancer, Heart Disease, Osteoporosis)

A compromised Immune System

Wrinkling and Thinning of the Skin

Depression and Stress

Cognitive Decline

Insulin Resistance

Loss of Sex Drive

Fatigue/Chronic Fatigue

Fibromyalgia

Insomnia

Hot Flashes

Night Sweats

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

 

Replenishment of these hormones to optimal, physio-logical levels (within normal limits and not to excess) has been shown to alleviate these age-related changes.

How Hormones Fit Into the Aging Process

Hormones are produced in the endocrine glands, which include the adrenal glands, testes, ovaries, thyroid, pituitary, and pineal gland.  As the body ages, the levels of hormones diminish resulting in the signs and symptoms of aging that can only be reversed by replacing our hormones to optimal levels to improve hormone effectiveness.  

As the levels of hormones decline so do our physical and mental capabilities.  We lose our energy, vitality, strength, physique, muscle mass, and health.  The deterioration seen in normal aging results in osteoporosis, coronary artery disease, muscle atrophy, sleep disorders, depression, mood disorders, and decreased sociability.  By restoring these hormones to their optimal levels we can improve and diminish many of the symptoms and signs we have come to associate with aging and the daily stress of life.

Biologically Identical Hormones

Structure is everything when it comes to hormone replacement therapy.  Natural, biologically identical hormones mimic the shape and function of our own hormones.  Our body recognizes the natural, biologically identical hormones in the same way it has always recognized its own hormones.  They are safer with fewer side effects and have been found to have a rejuvenating and proactive effect.

It is important to note proper replacement of hormones involves restoring deficient hormones to optimal, more youthful levels utilizing biologically identical hormones.  How to balance the various hormones of the body is the art and science of this new specialty.  Let Medical Spa of Midland help you achieve the quality of life you desire and deserve.
