As we age, it is normal for our bodies to experience change. In our younger years, we may have felt full of vitality, youthful energy, and a strong sense of drive. However, as we approach our late 30s or 40s, it is typical for that indescribable feeling of youth to fade. This is a natural part of the aging process and may lead to a shift towards a relaxed and slower-paced lifestyle. Additionally, it is common for romantic relationships to take a backseat.
Yet we need to remember that our age does not define us. Even as we experience these changes, we still have a life to live and dreams to pursue. But what if we aren’t ready to let go of that youthful energy? There are ways to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle to keep our bodies in sync with our minds.
Signs of Hormone Imbalance
If you have symptoms suggesting a hormone deficiency, it is essential to check your hormone levels.

One possible treatment option is Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Talk to your healthcare provider to see if you are a candidate for treatment.

Hormone Replacement In History
Manipulating hormones has been in practice for over seventy years. Birth control is one of the most used methods of hormone manipulation. Birth control introduces hormones like estrogen and progesterone, which causes various physiological changes. These hormones play essential roles in many functions of the body.
“Estrogen is responsible for the growth and continued development of your reproductive anatomy, including your vagina and uterus. It also is responsible for the development of your breasts and the growth of your pubic and armpit hair during puberty. Together, these changes signal the upcoming arrival of your first menstrual period, which marks the beginning of your childbearing years.” Andrea Chisholm, MD via Verywell Health
Hormones Can Be Replaced
With proper evaluation and a personalized treatment program, your hormones can be balanced. You may not realize how good your body can feel and function at optimal hormone levels. Estrogen, progesterone, thyroid, and testosterone keep us feeling young and healthy. By using bio-identical hormones, you can once again live your best life!
How Do I Get Started?
Look for a provider who uses bio-identical hormones and specializes in the treatment. Hormone replacement therapy requires careful planning and monitoring to ensure safe and long-lasting benefits. It’s important to find a provider experienced in using hormone replacement therapy.
If you’re interested in HRT, find a provider who only prescribes bio-identical hormones. Also, make sure to find a provider who specializes in the treatment, not just dabbles; HRT is a balancing act that should be carefully planned and monitored to ensure healthy, long-lasting benefits.
