Get back your vitality!
Nearly all of us over the age of 40 begin to experience hormone imbalance and decline. In order to balance your hormones for optimal health and wellness, it is important to be evaluated and treated by a highly trained medical doctor who can order comprehensive blood tests and create a personalized treatment plan.
Many age-related health concerns can be eliminated simply by restoring your hormone imbalance or deficit using Bio-identical Hormone Optimization Therapy. Bio-identical hormones are made at a compound pharmacy and are exactly like the hormones your body already makes.
Using Bio-identical Hormone Optimization Therapy to replenish your hormones to optimal, physiological levels has been shown to:
Bio-identical Hormone Optimization can help you regain some of your youthful resilience and vigor. Research shows that conditions associated with aging such as deterioration of your bones and joints and cardiovascular disease can be mitigated by hormone therapy.
Synthetic hormone treatments are a thing of the past. Today, we have bio-identical hormones – the safest and most effective approach to hormone therapy. Your body processes bio-identical hormones in the same way it has processed its own hormones your entire life.
While synthetic hormones may somewhat resemble your natural hormones, they are unnatural and may include side effects such as bloating, mood swings, water retention, cancer, and heart disease.
Bio-identical hormones are made at a compounding pharmacy and have the exact biochemical structure as those naturally made in your body. They are more effective and less costly than the synthetic hormones made by pharmaceutical companies.
Maintaining hormones at the average blood levels of a 30-year old is safe and effective. Modern scientific evidence concludes that Bio-identical Hormone Optimization Therapy is both desirable and beneficial for your health.
Bio-identical hormones are not unsafe, dangerous, or a threat to your health or life. More often than not, they are underused and under prescribed. Bio-identical hormones are the safest and most natural way to replace your hormones, which diminish and may become out of balance over time.
Over-the-counter, non-prescription hormone remedies can mask symptoms, but leave the problem unresolved. They produce some effects that may reduce symptoms, but do not provide the full benefits of the actual hormones they are trying to replace.
Bio-identical Hormone Optimization Therapy is not a magic bullet, but it can certainly slow down the ravages of time. Nothing can stop us from getting older, but you don’t have to feel ‘old’. By following a physician-directed regimen using bio-identical hormones, you can enjoy a life filled with health, vitality, and vigor instead of pain, fatigue, and illness.
