Anti-Aging Medicine & Bioidentical Hormones
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is at the core of anti-aging and regenerative medicine protocols because it can greatly affect the speed and quality in which a person ages. Inevitably, the human body will grow older, organ systems will begin to slow down, and the body will lose its vitality. However, for the first time in history, men and women can have a say in how well they age. Physicians now understand that the endocrine system plays a vital role in how quickly and how well a person ages. People that age rapidly tend to have weaker endocrine systems and less vitality, and those that never seem to look or feel older typically have stronger endocrine systems.
The endocrine system excretes hormones, which control and regulate almost all of the functions that make life possible in the physical body. Some of these functions include reproduction, metabolism, growth, energy and heat production, cellular repair, digestion, sleep cycles, and nutrient synthesis. As people put wear and tear on their systems through stress, poor dietary factors, environmental toxins, and aging, the endocrine system becomes less capable of producing essential hormones. A lack of hormone production creates a domino effect in the body that first causes its functions to become impaired, which then leads to less physiological efficiency, a loss of vitality, and finally, age-related diseases.
Balancing hormone levels with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy may prevent the degeneration of bodily systems and functions. Optimal hormone levels can also reduce the risk for developing age-related diseases. Some of the age-related diseases that can be prevented or improved with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy include:
- Type II Diabetes
- High triglycerides
- Cardiovascular disease
- Breast cancer
- High cholesterol
- Uterine cancer
- Alzheimer’s disease
