Hormone Replacement Therapy
The use of hormone replacement therapy for both men and women is based on the following principles:
- Hormones have a significant impact on how we age and on the relative health of that aging process.
- Supplementing hormones to levels present in the body during our 20’s and 30’s (when we were at our healthiest and felt our best) is both safe and healthy.
- Proper hormone replacement therapy depends on balance between hormones.
- If we accept: a) the principles of evolution, b) that hormones start to decline around the age of 27, and c) that the body, while it evolved, had healthy hormones for as long as it lived (until approximately the age of 40), and if we extrapolate these principles forward to a longer life expectancy, one could reasonably conclude that Mother Nature intended that we have healthy hormones for as long as we live. Now that we are living longer thanks to modern science, the only way to accomplish this is through hormone replacement therapy.
- Studies are beginning to show that healthy hormones improve the odds of avoiding chronic illnesses such as depression, osteoporosis, and Altzheimer’s.
For women, the principle feel good hormones are estrogen and progesterone, with testosterone, thyroid, DHEA and cortisol playing supporting roles. If your hormone levels are not within healthy ranges, you probably aren’t feeling your best, and you may be exposing yourself to chronic illness as you age.
Replacing hormones to healthy levels will usually result in a favorable transformation of your wellbeing and health in as little as 2 to 4 weeks. However, it should be noted that replacing hormones to healthy levels must be accompanied by lifestyle habits that include a diet low in refined carbohydrates and saturated fats, adequate levels of physical activity, and stress reduction (to the extent it’s possible).
