Age Management/Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement
Many people think that aging and the loss of vital hormones are inevitable as we get older. Today we have the methods necessary to determine what hormones we are lacking, and the ability to use safe, bio-identical hormones, the same as what our bodies naturally produce, to keep out hormone levels at the level they used to be when we were naturally young and vibrant.
Maintaining youthful levels of thyroid hormone, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA and cortisol will help us feel better and look younger, in addition to decreasing our risks for heart disease, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and other age-related phenomena. The use of nutritional supplements enhances the ability of our body to maintain normal biochemical reactions that can decline with age. Exercise and stress reduction are other vital armamentarium in the age-management process.
At Integrative Dermatology we believe that an educated patient will be more motivated and will get better results with the treatment plans we suggest. For this reason, the first step in age-management is our Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Seminar, given monthly. Here you will learn why we suggest what we do; after attending you will recognize many of the symptoms you may have, and will understand how to alleviate them with diet, exercise, stress management, and supplementation with bio-identical hormones and nutraceuticals.
