Most of us know that we are supposed to eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly and take supplements. However, most of us do not know that even a healthy lifestyle cannot prevent our body’s deterioration from unhealthy levels of hormones.
Few of us realize that our hormones decline with age – irrespective of our lifestyle –and that many of our diseases and daily aches and pains are in fact caused by hormonal deficiencies.
Most of us do not realize that hormonal deficiencies are often the cause of many illnesses
and misery that are either:
- unrecognized and untreated by conventional (pharmacological) medicine;
- treated incorrectly with dangerous drugs that address symptoms not causes; or
- diagnosed as depression, bi-polar disorder, add.
*As we age, our hormones decline. This is a fact that can be shown with lab testing. With that decline comes reduced energy, increased body fat, lower sex drive, increased risk of heart disease, cancer, PMS for many ladies, disabilities, aches and pains, etc. Conventional medicine considers this progression a normal part of aging. Wellness medicine, sometimes referred to as Anti-aging medicine or preventive medicine, offers bioidentical hormones to prevent and treat these conditions.
