Hormone Balancing

Hormone Balancing

What is Hormone Balancing ?


The hormone program replenishes suboptimal body’s hormones with biologically identical proteins. Numerous hormones can be balanced and restored to more youthful states.

Hormonal imbalance is one of the most important reasons for premature aging. As such, hormonal balancing is an essential component of anti-aging therapy.

Hormones:

  • Protein secreted by cell
  • Circulate via body fluid
  • produce effects on remote cells
  • All production decline with age>40
  • Except cortisol & insulin
  • All decline in effectiveness with age>40
  • Tissue response decline with age

Natural Hormone Replenishment Therapy (NHRT)

  • Identify symptoms and signs of hormone decline and sub-optimal hormone levels
  • Prevent hormonal decline by replenishing hormones to more optimal and youthful levels
  • Restore youthful hormone levels to prevent, delay, or reverse early age-associated diseases.

Natural Hormones

  • Pure, hypo-allergenic, pharmaceutical-grade, and biologically identical or near-identical to body’s own hormone, given in a sustained released fashion.
  • May be produced from plants or produced in the laboratory
  • Native plant hormone like phytoestrogen not identical or in sufficient amount

Benefits of Natural Hormones:

  • Reproduce biological effects
  • Same biological pathways
  • Fewer or no side effects
  • Decreased risk for cancer
  • Synergistic effects with other natural hormones
  • Normal metabolic breakdown products

Sources of Hormone:

  • Pineal hormone: Melatonin
  • Adrenal hormone: Pregnenolone DHEA Cortisol
  • Thyroid hormone: T3, T4
  • Pituitary hormone: IGF-1 / TSH
  • Pancreatic hormone: Insulin
