Hormone Restoration May be the Answer you been waiting for!

A person's age has traditionally been defined by the number of years a person has lived. This is called the chronological age. The biological age on the other hand looks at a persons age at the cellular level and how it functions. We all have come across individuals who appear and function younger or older than their stated age. Achieving longevity (long life span) is one thing but more importantly, how do we maintain a good health-span (living healthy for as long as you live till the day you die. Dr Ron Rothenberg describes this as therectangularization of the functionality curve. This means that we should strive to stay as functional as possible for as long as possible. The specialty of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine is one specialty that aims to achieve this through early detection, prevention and reversal of age related decline.


By optimizing our dietary intake, optimal exercise regimes, nutritional supplementation and balanced hormone replacement we believe this can be achieved. It was thought that our hormones decline because we age. However, we now know that the reverse is true....we age because our hormones decline. This is the basis of the neuro-endocrine theory of aging. With this in mind, by replacing the hormones in a balanced fashion, aging and other declines in bodily functions can be halted and potentially reversed. The human body has 2 major control or regulatory systems namely the nervous system and the endocrine system. The hypothalamus situated in the brain is the major connection between these 2 systems which work seamlessly with one another.


The endocrine system produces hormones which function as messengers to other endocrine organs and non endocrine cells. Through this hormonal symphony, our bodies are able to function the way it does. The major endocrine glands include the pituitary gland, the pineal gland, thyroid gland, the adrenal glands, the pancreas, the testes in men and ovaries in women. Hormonal imbalances can affect people at various ages from adolescence through adulthood and old age. In adolescence, problems such as acne and premenstrual stress (PMS) are related to hormonal imbalances. Those in their 20's and 30's may suffer PMS, migraines, breast tenderness, fibroids, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, infertility,fibromyalgia and weight gain. Measures taken to balance their hormones may relieve and potentially reverse these conditions.


Women who go through menopause often have sleep disorders, hot flashes, bloating and weight gain, low libido and decreased bone mass and strength which respond well to balanced hormone replacement. In men, the term andropause has been given to describe male menopause. Unlike menopause which occurs as soon as a woman stops ovulating, andropause presents more gradually with low libido, reduced energy, reduced muscle mass and increased fat. All these changes in men and women translates to more serious illnesses such as hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and stroke. By replacing waning hormones back to it youthful level, chronic illnesses may be prevented.


When deciding on hormone replacement therapy, it is vital to choose hormones which are identical to the ones produced by our body called Bio-identical Hormones. These bio-identical hormones derived from all natural plants such as soy and wild yam, provide a safe source of hormones for both men and women and is available in the oral or cream form for application onto the skin. Replacement of hormones should be carefully tailored and monitored by well trained physicians to ensure physiologic and balanced replacement of hormones. We hope to add life to your years by balancing your hormones to its optimal level.
