There has been a lot of research done on the role of inflammation and diseases such as Alzheimer’s dementia, cancers, autoimmune diseases, and heart disease. It is fascinating to realize that these different diseases seem to have something in common: inflammation. A person’s genetic predisposition “guides” the end result (I.e. final disease that you get) of the inflammation.
Inflammation is caused by many things: stress, excess sugar and grain intake, and chemical/toxin exposure. These are the most common causes that we currently know of. Where do you get these? When you consume processed foods you often get sugars, grains, and chemicals all in one setting. Our society has turned into a fast food, junk food, soda addicted society. These foods and drinks irritate your body and cause inflammation.
The bottom line for you to understand is that what you eat, drink, and are exposed to can cause inflammation. This can disrupt your hormones: causing your Cortisol, Thyroid, Testosterone, Progesterone, Estrogen, etc to be significantly out of balance. This inflammation can also lead to severe diseases such as Alzeimer’s dementia, cancers, autoimmune diseases, heart disease, etc.
Regenerative medicine aka anti-aging medicine is about helping you to live optimally. Balancing your hormones is more than just giving you bio-identical hormones. Hormone replacement is a piece of the puzzle. You have the power to fix some of the other pieces by lifestyle adjustments. A regenerative medicine specialist helps you to do this.
