Why replace hormones?
Did you know that, after age 25, both men and women lose approximately 2 - 3% of many hormones each year? By age 50, we have only half the hormone production we enjoyed when we were younger, stronger and more energetic! These are hormones that are critical for maintaining vitality, health and mental sharpness! In fact, it’s estimated that, by menopause, many women have lost up to 90% of some hormones! Men, too, experience dramatic losses!
Hormones play a role in countless functions in the human body. When most people think of hormone replacement therapy, they think it is reserved solely for menopausal women suffering from hot flashes. Now, the practice of BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Therapy has expanded to include men and women and the use of testosterone, DHEA, pregnenolone, melatonin and cortisol in addition to Estrone, Estradiol, Estriol and progesterone.
