Uncountable paragraphs are written for women about how to look younger, feel younger, turn back the clock. Although there are also articles on the same subject for men, rarely is the basic cause of aging discussed or remedies suggested. Working out at the gym is good. Eating a healthy diet is good. But if you’re over 30 and you’d like to do more to handle symptoms of age, read on.
Changes begin to happen in bodies over the age of 30, in both men and women. Endocrine glands produce less and less of their youth-giving hormones on a gradient scale with advancing age. Recent research shows that as the hormones dwindle, the symptoms we think of as signs of age begin to appear, worsening as a body becomes older.
When most people speak of hormones they think of male and female hormones – testosterone and estrogen. But there are other hormones related to the aging process – human growth hormone and thyroid hormone and others. A man can experience low libido, loss of hair, excess unwanted weight, memory loss, weakness of muscles and other symptoms.
Make no mistake – a good exercise program and a sensible diet are important in maintaining youth. Vitamins and minerals and other nutritional supplements can also make a difference. But they only go so far without the hormones in the body.
But if the hormones cause these symptoms of old age, and the hormones are dwindling away, why not also replace the hormones? Women have had success with hormone replacement for years – why not for men, too?
Hormone replacement therapy can not only stop the aging process, but even reverse some of the symptoms. You would need to make an appointment with a doctor to get onto hormone replacement therapy. If you are already eating a healthful diet, and exercising regularly, then continue, but if not, you might want to get some help in those fields, also.
When you visit the doctor for hormone replacement, the first step is to do medical tests to find out which hormones need to be replaced and in what amount. An important thing for you to know is that you need to insist upon bioidentical hormones for replacements. Bioidentical means that the replacement hormone is exactly the same as the hormone produced by the body – not a synthetic that is similar.
You can do something about that extra weight, hair falling out, low libido and weakness. You can feel more energetic and youthful. No need to feel your age or slow down just because you feel you are getting older. Enjoy the rest of your life.
