While it may not seem obvious, “Every year, you live, your personal longevity is increasing, but your quality of life is decreasing,” says Dr. Allen Lawrence, Medical Director of Advanced Wellness Medical in Pasadena. Stress, toxic chemicals, poor eating habits, alcohol, lack of sleep or exercise, inadequate hormone production and a host of other factors are negatively impacting your mind, body and sexual functions by messing with the powerful hormones that regulate your internal systems.
While many of these factors are talked about and understood, little is really know or recognized about the role maintain balanced male and female hormones plays in keeping your body running smoothly, sending the correct healing messages to and from your organs. When your hormones are out of sync, a whole host of not so harmonic and healing health conditions can result.
Although we make and utilize many different hormones which can affect our health, three are really for regulating the healing and anti-aging aspects of our body. In men, the most important is testosterone, while in women it is both testosterone and estradiol (estrogen) and in both men and women there is growth hormone.
In men, Testosterone is commonly associated with “manliness, libido and strength” as well as increased confidence, increase sexual drive and sexual desire. In women, Estradiol is associated with femininity, reproduction and softness. Growth hormone generally unknown to the general public is responsible for our physical growth, including height, and closure of our bones, but also healing and the slowing down of the aging process.
As men and women reach their 20s and move into their 30s, the hormones controlling growth, and many other bodily and brain functions start to slowly wax and wane as part of their natural life cycle. Men and women slowly over the next years many begin struggling with hormonal imbalances culminating in andropause (total hormonal failure) in men and menopause (total hormonal failure) in women. Many men and women experience a progressive increase in symptoms, such as weight gain, muscle atrophy, hair loss, fatigue, insomnia, mood swings, hot flashes, night sweats, depression, anxiety, irritability, loss of focus and concentration, diminished sex drive, muddled thinking, low energy and a host of other physical, mental, emotional and even spiritual changes.
If you are an individual your forties, fifties, sixties or seventies or older, if you are feeling as if you have lost the best part of yourself? You are not alone. The good news here is that you don’t have to put up with trudging through the rest of your life feeling out of kilter or less healthy than in your younger years.
Each of these many symptoms of hormonal imbalance manifests in different ways for each and every individual. While everyone can have a bad day or sleepless night from time to time, what I am talking about here occurs as chronic and recurrent conditions due to individual and combined hormonal deficiencies which can when treated by a practitioner, who knows what he or she is doing, be controlled and/or reversed and with close monitoring and replacement of natural hormones return your body and organs to proper function, harmony and balance.
The physical, mental, emotional and spiritual symptoms are warning signs. They are present to alert you from their onset that you are falling out of sync with your body, a simple blood test can help us identify, diagnose and target specific hormonal deficiencies that are causing these imbalances. The most effective means of attacking and reversing these imbalances is through specific male and/or female Bio-Identical Testosterone and/or Estradiol Hormone Replacement Therapy. This means giving you hormone replacement of hormones (identical those your body have been making) to replaces the hormonal deficiencies so that you body works naturally.
There is no “magic” in this. This is totally scientific, well established, well thought out and recognized medical treatment. Correct and appropriate male (TRT) testosterone replacement therapy and/or female (HRT) estradiol and testosterone hormonal replacement therapy reestablishes optimal health and well-being. Achieving this all-important hormonal balance occurs with a combination of advanced Hormone Replacement Therapy and treatments, such as “lifestyle modifications” also acts to prevent many acute and chronic illnesses and works to improve your overall wellness, increase longevity and quality of life so that your body can get back on track and you feel your very best.

If what is said above applies to you consider hormone replacement therapy. Bring your body and your hormones back into balance.
