Why are Hormones Important? 

Hormones control almost every aspect of our body’s functions. In women and men, hormone imbalances occur from age 30. By age 50, we may have lost approximately 50% of the hormones we had at the peak of our health.

As hormones act as messengers to every cell in our body, its imbalance and decline in levels can lead to a multitude of symptoms such as (but not limited to):
– Skin aging
– Fatigue
– Anxiety
– Mood swings
– Weight gain
– Sleep problems
– Memory decline
– Lowered libido 

More importantly, risks of aging and degenerative diseases increases such as (but not limited to):
– Heart diseases
– Dementia
– Osteoporosis 

It is important to understand that Hormone Replacement Therapy is not just for hot flashes, sweating or mood swings – rather it is important for healthy aging and general health
