Men's Hormone Imbalance

Hormonal imbalance may be due to factors such as genetics, environmental toxins and pesticides. However, one of the most important contributors is stress. In fact, the link between stress and hormone deficiency has now become recognized by the medical world

Men also face their own andropause that usually starts in mid-life between the ages of 40-60. In the case of men, the hormone is testosterone.

Modern research has determined that we actually age because our hormone levels decline. Therefore, to restore youthful vigor and vitality, hormone levels should be restored. To determine your hormone levels, and to begin tailoring a personalized program for each individual, evaluation begins with a comprehensive series of blood tests. Some of the essential hormones that can be restored include Human Growth Hormone, Thyroid, Testosterone, DHEA, Pregnenolone and Melatonin. Benefits of natural hormone replacement therapy include Increased energy and sex drive Decreased cholesterol and body fat Increased muscle mass and results from exercise Improved sense of well-being and focus/ concentration Reduce risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
