Exercise Plus Hormone Replacement Therapy
Get More From Your Workouts…With Hormone Replacement Therapy
For most of your life you’ve probably been told that exercise is good for you. As you get older, the benefits of exercise can be even more important for maintaining good health and quality of life.
Aerobic exercise keeps your heart, lungs, and brain working at their best.
Weight-bearing exercise increases bone density and combats the effects of osteoporosis. It also improves your coordination and balance. Remember…falls are the main cause of death and disability in older people. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Exercise also causes the release of endorphins. These are the “feel-good” chemicals that reduce your perception of pain, ward off depression and anxiety, boost your self-esteem and improve sleep.
So what’s the problem? Exercise should be a no-brainer, right?
But if your hormones are out of balance, your workouts can feel like an exercise in futility.
Hormones and Exercise
Remember back in your 20’s?
If you wanted to get in shape or even just drop ten pounds or so, all you had to do was ramp up your gym routine a bit. Maybe cut out desserts. It was that easy.
But by your 40’s…maybe even in your 30’s…
Suddenly it’s not so easy. Rather than dropping a few pounds almost effortlessly, most people will put on a little more weight each year.
You might blame changes in your diet, less time to exercise or more family responsibilities. But there’s another factor you may not have considered:
Your hormone levels.
Beginning as early as your late 20’s, your body produces smaller amounts of critical hormones like testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, thyroid, and growth hormone. As these hormones decline, your body responds (but not in a good way):
- Your metabolism slows
- You lose muscle mass
- Your energy level declines
- Your motivation dwindles
Your need for exercise increases…but you have less energy and motivation to drag yourself out of bed and get to the gym. And it’s harder and harder to get the same results that used to be almost effortless.
Under these circumstances, it’s easy to feel like Sisyphus. In Greek mythology, he’s the king who was condemned to spend eternity in the underworld rolling a huge boulder up a hill. Unfortunately, every time he got it to the top it just rolled right back down again.
Like those ten pounds you keep trying to lose…
But what if you get your hormone levels right again?
By itself, properly supervised hormone replacement therapy unlocks powerful changes in your body:
- More energy
Proper hormone balance restores your “get up and go”. You don’t have to drag yourself to the gym…you’re eager for that next workout.
- Increased muscle mass
Workouts are easier when you’re not starting from nothing. Hormone replacement therapy helps your body regain lost muscle.
- Improved metabolism
With hormone balance restored, your body burns calories at a faster pace. As a result…your body stores less of the food you eat as fat.
When you combine the results of hormone replacement therapy with increased exercise, the results are enhanced for both.
So don’t just slow down your biological clock…roll it back.
