It happens to all of us. We can’t stop it. Time marches forward. The calendar advances, discarding all of our yesterdays. Aging is universal, and the effects of aging come with substantial physical changes.
However, if you are living in the 21st century, you no longer have to simply let aging happen to you. Aging is still around, but untreated aging can be a thing of the past. In this blog post from our anti-aging clinic in Baton Rouge, we’d like to cover some of the effects of untreated aging and what you can do about it. The good news is, you have choices and alternatives that can make a big difference in how you feel, what symptoms of aging you experience, and whether or not you enjoy optimum health for as long as possible. If you are a man over age 30, this post is for you!
Untreated aging in men follows a predictable pattern that looks something like this:
You feel greatTestosterone and all other hormones are at their peak
Muscle mass peaksWeight gain beginsYou notice subtle changes in how you look and feelHormones begin to decline
Libido and function declinesSleeping is an issueHormones have declined to the point of deficiency
Andropause has arrivedLow energy levelsMore weight gainMemory lossHormones are at deficient levels
Do you see yourself in that list? Even if you maintain an active lifestyle and a healthy diet, the fact that your body turns down the dial on your hormones is largely beyond your conscious choice or control. So what can you do about hormone deficiency?
What many people do is overlook the hormone connection altogether.
- I’m gaining weight, so I should work out more and eat less.
- I’m having trouble sleeping, so I’ll take a sleeping pill.
- My libido and function are declining, so I’ll get a prescription for that.
- I have low energy, so I’ll drink more coffee and energy drinks.
- My memory is failing me, so I’ll start playing brain games and taking ginkgo biloba.
All of these strategies offer some benefit, but the problem is, they don’t attack the one root cause that will make a difference in every category. If hormones are the cause of your symptoms of aging, shouldn’t you address your hormones, and not just throw pills at your symptoms?
Here’s the good news:
Now you can supplement your body’s declining production of hormones with an external supply of hormones that will work exactly the same way that your own hormones work. These hormones, called bioidentical hormones, are chemical messengers that circulate in your bloodstream and tell your cells to do various jobs. When your cells do their jobs, you feel and look great! When they don’t do their jobs (because no one came along to tell them to), you begin to suffer all the symptoms we described above.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a two-pronged procedure. First, it gives your body extra hormones to make up for your deficiency. Second, it provides your body with the precursor substances that will trigger your system to make more of its own hormones. When both of these things happen, it’s almost like turning back the clock.
