This is part three of the truth about hormones. We examine how hormones decline as we age and their effect on aging and chronic disease. We also described how young females and young males can have early hormonal deficiencies of progesterone and testosterone. For the past 15 years, we have treated thousands of these individuals at our natural hormone clinics in Austin, Texas and in other cities including College Station and San Antonio.
“We age because our hormones decline.”
Hormones decline as we age but they can be low or out of balance at an early age. Some start their decline as early as age 19 to 25 (HGH, DHEA). Some may not decline until menopause (estrogen).Most men over the age of 30 now have low or suboptimal levels of testosterone.
Sadly, many female teenagers (or even younger females) start their periods with low levels of progesterone. Their periods are often marked by heavy bleeding, cramping, headaches and they sometimes struggles with body fat, PMS, and acne. In many cases, their periods may be irregular or non-existent.
As we age, due in great part because of the decline of our hormones (signaling), we become more susceptible to what are called the “diseases of aging.” These include heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, memory loss, Alzheimer disease, diabetes, and many more.
Insufficiency of hormones has been discovered
to be a major element in the process of aging.
Most men over the age of 30 have low testosterone levels. Men over the age of 30 are likely have low levels of free testosterone (low T). Why is this important? Testosterone is our primary male hormone and it affects every aspect of our lives. It has been scientifically shown to help prevent heart disease, prostate cancer, depression, diabetes, memory loss and Alzheimer’s Disease. It can help lower blood pressure, reverse type 2 diabetes, and lower cholesterol – all without the use of drugs. It gives energy and motivation. It is a natural anti-depressant.
Testosterone is necessary to everyday life. Sex drive, muscle strength, energy, quality of sleep, belly size, mental quickness and clarity, all are affected by your testosterone hormone. Testosterone administration lowers triglycerides, CRP, and TNF-?. One physician has stated as follows:

Studies show that testosterone can help reduce the risk of breast cancer in women, particularly when coupled with estradiol.
