Under current science, it is true that you must take hormones for the rest of your life. Now when I say must, it’s not a requirement. When you take hormones, you typically take them because you’re deficient. We don’t have any scientific knowledge right now to how to magically restart your body’s existing hormones.
We all know that they decline as we age. So if we continue to replace them, we’re going to continue keep healthy levels. However, let’s say for example that because of economic reasons you’re unable to continue to afford to continue on the hormone program. What will happen? You would just go back to your body’s normal production.
Course most of us don’t want to be back to our body’s normal production but that’s all that’s going to happen. Your body will never cease making hormones until we die, of course. And, as we age they continue to decline but once you start replacing hormones, you’re going to feel great! But if you stop replacing them, your body will go back to your normal age-related levels of hormones.
