As we begin to age, the hormones in our body also begin to fade. Hormones help keep us wrinkle-free, energized, quick to recover from colds, can help get body weight under control, they aid our sex drive, moods, and our memory. Hormones are vital to our bodies to keep them running properly, but over time, due to toxins, lacking sleep, eating poorly, and more, our hormone levels become depleted.
Bioidentical hormones for aging are prescription medications of hormones already found in our bodies: estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid and adrenal support etc. They can be compounded by specific pharmacies that tailor the hormones for the individual.
By drawing your blood, your doctor is able to analyze your different hormone levels, your symptoms or complaints if you will, and then develop a personalized treatment plan. Just like any anti-aging, aesthetics, or beauty treatment, everybody reacts differently. Your team of health care providers will need to spend time with you to figure out what is best for YOU. The right professional will take the time to customize your treatment plan tailored to best suit your medical needs.
