How to Stop Decreasing Hormones from Making You Feel Old!

Guest columnist, Dr. Julio Hernandez, founder of Biscayne Wellness Center, on decreasing hormone levels and how they can adversely affect your life.

Something clearly happens after age 40.  Those of us that have hit that benchmark can tell you something is a little different.  Both men and women experience a series of symptoms including, but not limited to:  decreased energy, weight gain, insomnia, low sex drive, and thinning hair.  The list goes on and on.  Aging is clearly not fun. But do we have to really experience all these awful symptoms? We can certainly try to rationalize as to why we are experiencing weight gain or decreased libido.  The reality is that we just don’t feel like ourselves.  We feel different, we look different but we can’t understand why!

Something is controlling or causing these seemingly unrelated symptoms. What do low energy, weight gain, and insomnia have in common?  The answer is hormones.  Many of our bodily process are controlled by hormones, primarily our sex hormones like Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone.

As we age, we experience a gradual loss of hormones.  This can lead to the early symptoms of menopause or andropause (as it is known for men). In addition, many chronic health conditions begin with a decrease in hormones.

The solution is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy.   Hormones control everything. They work together so that too much of one or not enough of the other will cause you to feel many different, undesirable symptoms.  Unlike synthetic hormones, they are an exact chemical match to your natural hormones.  This means that our bodies can recognize them and use them properly.

Finding the right balance is the key, this is why we use a series of tests from blood, saliva, and urine to determine your exact levels.  Then we work with a pharmacy that customizes a hormone prescription specifically for you. In a very short amount of time, you will start feeling better, having more energy, losing weight and feeling young again.

Isn’t it time you took over the wheel and got your hormones back on track?
