Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone Replacement Therapy is a medical treatment that improves the hormone balance in patients whose hormone levels are abnormal or deficient. This is often associated with Menopause (in women) and Andropause (in men). It involves using replacement hormones which are identical in chemical and molecular structure to the hormones your body naturally produces.
The decrease in hormones after the age of 30 often leads to a host of problems, conditions, and diseases which hormone therapy can help alleviate or prevent as you continue to age. This is why hormone replacement therapy is the cornerstone of most Age Management regimens.
Why do I need Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Maintaining balanced hormone levels results in higher energy levels, cognitive function, sexual desire and function, and retaining muscle tone and mass. It also helps in maintaining natural sleep cycles and even helps preventing depression, weight gain, moodiness and a host of other age-related conditions. Proper hormone levels protect against cardiovascular disease, elevated blood pressure, certain forms of cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis and many other diseases.
