When talking about hormones or Hormone Replacement Therapy, it is believed that almost 100% of people will think about the golden years first. In the meantime, there are many people who understand that hormone replacement therapy can solve only golden year problems. However, hormone replacement therapy can be used with all types of hormone deficiencies, for which we have the ability to provide treatment right to the spot.
All kinds of hormones in life
Our body has various types of hormones in each area. For example: Pineal gland, a ductless gland, that produces serotonin in the afternoon to wake us and produce melatonin at night to help with sleeping and stimulating a change the body’s biological clock system by working together with Hypothalamus, which acts like the control center of hormones throughout the body in the production of hormones to activate the pituitary gland and create hormone secretion. For example: Hormone FSH activates the sexual gland to stimulate the ovaries; Hormone LH stimulates ovulation; Hormone TSH stimulates the thyroid; and Hormone ACTH stimulates the adrenal gland, etc. From the aforementioned information, it can be seen that hormones consist of many parts. Therefore, hormone replacement therapy is not only for sexual hormones, but also for every deficient part of the body that affects the level of hormones and causes problems, such as bad metabolic system, fast aging, getting tired easily, and fatigue. So, we must solve the right spot by using hormone replacement to balance the hormones back to normal.
Different sexual hormones create balance
Hormones in our body are all important. Sexual hormones build our figure which is a symbol of male and female. Female hormones are divided into Estrogen and Progesterone, which are related with the menstruation of females. When reaching 30 years old, hormones in the body will decrease, including Testosterone, the male hormone in the female body, but not as mush as in males. This hormone will help to build the muscles and sexual drive.
Therefore, we can notice that when females get older, the sexual appeal will decrease. Especially when reaching 45 years old and above, the sexual hormone of females will lose balance and they will be easily irritated, gain weight, and experience swelling. These conditions are the induction point for uterine fibroid and ovarian tumor. When entering 50 years old, the estrogen will greatly decrease. Females will become more irritated, sleepless, restless, and feel hot and cold easily. Also, in the long term, the skin will wrinkle with uneven or missing menstruation and dry vagina, which will cause scratches after sexual intercourse. There are many times that physical problems can cause family problems. Therefore, these moments are the period when many females can suffer from menopause. Males will enter the golden years when they are about 60 years old, except those who do not take care of themselves will enter the golden years faster. The dreadful thing for males when entering the golden years is erectile dysfunction. Apart from having the aforementioned symptoms from reduced sexual hormones, the significant symptoms that can occur to both females and males in their golden years is poor concentration at work and reduced memory, especially short-term memory. Also, from the statistics, especially in females, it was found that females who enter the menopausal period quickly have greater chances of developing Alzheimer’s. Therefore, the creation of sexual hormones by using hormone replacement therapy is a good alternative for both females and males.
Hormone Replacement Therapy, an excellent helper in solving hormone problems
There are many types of hormone replacements for sexual hormones, both synthetic and natural.
- Synthetic hormones are quite strong and can easily create side effects. For example: An estrogen dominance will increase the risk of blood clot and blood vessels, which increase the chances of a tumor or cancer. It is well known as a birth control pill for ladies. Also, the quantity of hormones is a fixed quantity. Everyone will receive hormones in the same quantity, which is a weak point because different people need different hormone quantities.
- Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is the treatment we select for taking care of patients because bioidentical hormone replacement therapy has the same structure that humans make. It is an external drug that the body can easily absorb. Also, the quantity of hormones will be considered individually. Before the doctor selects each type of hormone replacement, the hormone level will be thoroughly checked to analyze the quantity of hormone replacement that each person should receive. Therefore, it truly provides individualized hormone treatment.
There are many benefits from hormone replacement. Apart from helping hormones to gain balance in both females and males, it can slow down aging in females and prolong the operation of brain cells, which we often define as “Golden years with diamond brain.” Therefore, hormone replacement can be considered another aspect of anti-aging medicine from the inside to the outside.
Physical balance and lifestyle
Now that we know about hormones up to this point, the obvious thing is that hormone replacement is important to everyone, not only for just the golden years. It is a process to create hormones in the body by using hormone replacement therapy. It is something that everyone should place an importance on, like an annual health check-up, as another channel in having good health.
