A primary goal of Regenerative Medicine is to balance one’s hormones. Achieving hormone balance often leads to less chronic inflammation in the body. Chronic inflammation is felt to be the main cause of most of the chronic diseases that we see today, as well as a main cause of aging poorly. Thus, lowering inflammation is regarded as one of the main ways that we can prevent, and even reverse, diseases. Having energy and living with vitality is the goal of Regenerative Medicine and when you have more balanced hormones, you can more easily achieve this goal.
Hormone deficiencies take many forms: varying from a low thyroid, low testosterone, low estrogen, low progesterone, or a cortisol imbalance (adrenal fatigue). Treating mild hormone deficiencies can dramatically improve your quality of life. Balancing these hormones can slow the effects of premature aging and prevent, or even reverse, many chronic diseases.
Exercise, proper nutrition, stress reduction, and the right supplementation all contribute towards balancing your hormones and helping you to age well. Bio-identical hormone replacement is another piece to this puzzle. Due to many factors that are present in today’s world (the two biggest factors being excess stress and the numerous chemical exposures that we have on a daily basis); utilizing bio-identical hormones is becoming a necessity for people who wish to live optimally in today’s “crazy” world.
