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
– 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
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.
