You’ve probably heard the expression “Their hormones are just out of wack!”
The truth is, hormones play an important role in how we feel. And, as we age, hormonal imbalance can become a real issue, affecting not only our mood but also our overall health.
Dr. Dale Guyer of the Guyer Institute likes to describe our hormone system (endocrine system) as “a symphony of sorts wherein each instrument needs to be played in conjunction with the others in total balance.’
Guyer Institute’s Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is an ideal way to preserve the ageing experience. “You don’t have to gain weight or have hot flashes, and you can preserve your immune health”, said Dr. Guyer. It involves the synergy of putting all the hormones together through a treatment known as bio identical hormone replacement. The same hormones that your body makes can be made from yams (yes, yams!) and work very well in restoring life quality.
When hormones are out of balance, our bodies have a way of telling us. For women, this problem could show up as hot flashes, sleep disturbance, mood swings, and symptoms of skin or vaginal dryness.
For men, the onset of symptoms can often be very gradual over a span of five to 10 years as testosterone and other essential hormone levels gradually decline at a rate of about 10 percent per year. And, often they are not even aware of a problem. Their spouse may be the first to notice the change. Possibly he has become more lethargic and much less motivated. Perhaps he has gained weight, experienced a decrease in libido, has poor exercise tolerance, and a general overall diminishment in life enjoyment.
Fortunately, conditions of hormonal imbalance can be corrected in both men and women. For women, these symptoms can be resolved in a fairly quick time frame when hormone levels are restored. For men, restoration of testosterone and other hormone levels to a more optimal and younger age will tend to diminish and mitigate those overall concerning symptoms while substantially improving overall long-term health.
We start losing hormones in our late 20’s, and Dr. Guyer states that it happens to both women AND men, although symptoms usually affect women first. Everyone is unique and the time-frame when symptoms start to show up varies in the individual.
Denise Kaler, CEO of Synergy Spa, described how Dr. Guyer was able to help alleviate her “hot flashes” – “Dr. Guyer did some labs, then was able to formulate a cream for me to use along with a pill I take at night. At 61, I never thought I would feel so vibrant! You CAN feel like a million bucks!’
If you feel your “hormones are out of wack”, consider Bio Identical Hormone replacement therapy to substantially improve your overall long-term health.
