I once read a quote “Our hormones do not decline because we age, rather we age because our hormones decline”. After treating people over the years for hormone imbalance I have to agree. Many of the age related things that happen to us are a result of a hormonal imbalance. Of course we are all going to die at some point, but it does not mean that we have to deteriorate for many years before then. Our bodies are designed to allow us to live vibrantly as we age. You should be able to live well and die quickly (at an advanced age). Most people are dying slowly with several chronic diseases.
Aches and pains, mental fogginess, bone thinning, high blood pressure, elevated blood sugar, mood changes, weight gain, etc have all been linked to an imbalance in hormones. Doesn’t it make sense to prevent the chronic diseases rather than just treat the symptoms?? Why wait until you have diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, severe arthritis, cancer, etc. before you do something about it?
Hormones are critical to your overall mental and physical well being. It takes a healthy diet, proper sleep, regular exercise, the right supplements, and the avoidance of toxins in order to balance your hormones. Using bio-identical hormones to also help balance your hormones is the price we pay to live in this toxic world. I look at the use of bio-identical hormones as a piece of the optimal wellness puzzle. When you address all the pieces properly, you live well: full of energy and vitality.
