BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE THERAPY
Hormones, from conception are produced by the endocrine glands. They serve as messengers from your brain, telling the internal organs how to function. A decrease in the production of hormones begins in middle age and continues to diminish in a linear fashion until old age. When hormones start declining, we begin an accelerate aging process physically and mentally.
DHEA : secreted by the adrenal glands, this hormone benefits the immune system, reduces visceral fat and reduces cardiovascular risk through its effects on lipids and body fat.
Melatonin: regulates the deep stages of sleep and stage IV sleep, thereby increasing and enhancing the immunity system.
Thyroid: secreted by the thyroid gland, regulates temperature, metabolism and cerebral function. Insufficient thyroid levels result in fatigue, increased cholesterol levels and increased risk of coronary artery disease.
Estrogen: protects against heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease and memory disorders. It protects against vaginal atrophy, urinary incontinence, and prevents symptoms of menopause, including hot flashes.
Progesterone: protects against uterine and breast cancers, osteoporosis, fibrocystic disease and ovarian cysts. It dramatically decreases pre and post menopausal symptoms.
Testosterone: A hormone normally associated with men, but is also found in women. Secreted by the adrenal glands, testes and ovaries, It contributes to muscle mass, strength and endurance, decreased fat, increased exercise tolerance, lowers blood pressure, modulates cholesterol levels, enhancement of well-being and psychological status.
Pregnenolone: Studies indicate that pregnenolone and hormone therapy might be beneficial against age-related cognitive decline line failure of memory and lack of mental clarity.
Human Growth Hormone (HGH): is produced by the pituitary gland, a pea-sized organ at the base of the brain. HGH is one of the most important hormones in controlling how our cells grow, reproduce
Bio-identical hormones are hormones that are structurally identical to the hormones we produce in our own bodies.
Because they are identical, these hormones mimic the exact chemistry occurring naturally in the body.
The Wheel of Health, developed by integrative medicine experts at Duke University, reflects the general approach taken by professionals in this field. The nine key areas of health listed below demonstrate interconnectedness between mind, body, and spirit:
