The fact is that the aging process affects everyone.
Over time, our bodies begin to change as we notice that we look and feel different than we used to. Hormone production declines to a point of deficiency, resulting in decreased libido, energy levels, fatigue, and weight gain.
Hormone Therapy for Anti-Aging
Fortunately, scientific advancements have granted us the ability to reverse some of these effects. Opportunities now exist for you to delay and defer the symptoms of aging through natural, safe replacements in conjunction with a diet and nutritional plan, as well as customized skin care. Here at Rejuvime Medical, we use bioidentical hormones that serve as the exact makeup as those naturally produced in your body, allowing you to safely and effectively replace those lost in the aging process.
Why Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are derived from plants and/or animal sources that are structurally completely identical to the hormones your body produces. They are not synthesized in a lab. As such, your body cannot tell the difference and treats them accordingly. It matches naturally occurring hormones so well, in fact, that when a patient is tested for specific hormone levels after being treated with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), the added hormones are completely indistinguishable from the ones produced in the body.
What Can Hormone Therapy Do for You?
Hormone therapy can offer a variety of healthful benefits for the right person. Some of these benefits include:
1. Reverse the Effects of Aging
Hormone decline results in many visible and intangible effects. We’ve all recognized them with the men and women we’ve grown up around, and some of us know the symptoms firsthand now. After beginning BHRT, patients report:
- A higher degree of energy
- Improved sleep cycles
- Improved sex drive
- Better mood
- Boost in concentration and memory
- A feeling of well-being
Basically, these patients report what many would describe as a return to a more youthful existence. BHRT simply replaces your body’s deficient levels of hormones and balances them back to the way they were when you were younger!
2. Preempt the Effects of Aging
Perimenopause, or the transition into menopause, usually occurs years before menopause takes full effect. This can start as early as a woman’s 30s. Starting BHRT early has an even greater beneficial effect on combating the negative effects of menopause.
This is true for men, as well. Even though men do not experience menopause, their testosterone production will begin to dwindle, resulting in many similar side effects such as weight gain, lowered energy levels, and decreased libido. Men, too, can benefit just as well from the early adoption of BHRT. Plus, it’ll allow them to keep up with their wives …

3. Stress Management
Hormone balance is critical to stress management. Menopause in women, as well as low testosterone in men, can be the onset of sudden anxiety and poor stress management. Irritability and fatigue are common symptoms (leading to the “grumpy old man/woman” trope). Because this is generally a direct result of aging and hormone imbalance, BHRT is an excellent corrective tool for reducing stress levels as well as the anxiety and frustration that come with it.
