Causes and Remedies of Hormone Deficiency
Between the ages of 45 to 50 many women and men start to experience unusual symptoms that they cannot explain. Oftentimes their doctors are unable to make a definitive diagnosis, and the symptoms may continue untreated for years. However, more physicians are now recognizing that hormone deficiency is at the root of these problems.
Hormones tend to decline as we age. In women this becomes more acute in the years leading up to, and during menopause. Men also face their own andropause that usually starts in mid-life between the ages of 40-60. In the case of women, progesterone or estrogen are the hormones affected, while in the case of men, the hormone is testosterone.
Hormonal imbalance may be due to other factors such as genetics, birth control pills, cleaning products, and pesticides. However one of the most important contributors is stress. In fact, the link between stress and hormone deficiency has now become recognized by the medical world, leading to more solutions being sought to help people to handle stress.
That’s why here at the Fountain of Youth MedSpa; we have several methods to combat adrenalin fatigue. When the adrenalin glands function below the required level this condition is referred to as adrenalin fatigue. We employ bio-identical hormone therapy alongside a nutrient-rich diet, to help reduce stress and improve hormone levels.
Hormone Replacement Therapy
In the past, it was believed that deterioration of hormone levels occurred because of aging. Modern research has determined that we actually age because our hormone levels decline. Therefore, to restore youthful vigor and vitality, hormone levels should be restored. To determine your hormone levels, and to begin tailoring a personalized program for you, evaluation begins with a comprehensive series of blood tests. Some of the essential hormones that can be restored include Human Growth Hormone, Thyroid, Testosterone, Estrogen, Progesterone, DHEA, Pregenolone and Melatonin.
