How Hormone Replacement Therapy Can Help Ease the Symptoms of Aging

It’s a fact of life: Your hormone levels steadily decline as you get older. As men and women lose estrogen. progesterone, and testosterone, you experience the so-called “normal” symptoms of aging. 

Your metabolism slows, your libido wanes, your joints hurt, you get insomnia, your abdominal fat increases, your skin shows signs of aging in the form of lines, wrinkles, and a dull appearance, and you begin having those “senior moments” mentally.

Are these changes something you should just take in stride? Or is there a way to ease the symptoms of aging and regain your vitality?

Hormone replacement therapy is a proven method for balancing your hormones and limiting some of the unpleasant effects of aging. When your hormones are balanced, you begin to feel more energetic, and you carry yourself with confidence. Vitality returns along with so much more that you thought was gone forever.

Men and imbalanced hormones

Women aren’t alone in their hormonal challenges of aging. While men don’t experience menopause, a significant number do find themselves going through andropause. This gender-specific condition comes about from a decline in the production of testosterone. SMen of all ages must deal with the effects of andropause, including: 

Preserve your well-being

It’s wise to be proactive when it comes to hormone replacement therapy. That way there’s no need to suffer with symptoms that often bring signs of aging. Not everyone is a candidate for hormone replacement therapy, because each individual has a unique set of hormonal needs to achieve balance.
