Bioidentical Hormone Therapy as Part of Anti-Aging Medicine
Anti-aging is a specialty in the holistic health field that focuses on helping individuals remain energetic as well as physically and emotionally healthy throughout life. As a Tampa Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Expert and Anti-Aging Specialist, Dr. Rubin recognizes that true health is not merely the absence of disease. He also knows that chronological age means little when symptoms of hormone imbalance negatively affect your quality of life. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy fits in with his philosophy that people can look and feel their best no matter what their age.
The hormones of both men and women undergo drastic changes long before midlife in preparation for andropause or menopause. If you’re in your 30s, 40s, or 50s and recognize the symptoms above, the most likely scenario is that you have a hormone imbalance. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy balances your declining hormones using natural plant ingredients. The effects are fast and dramatic for most people. Robert Rubin, M.D. administers an individualized compound of bioidentical hormones for each of his patients. He replaces only the hormones that require it and in just the right amounts.
Typical Hormones Balanced with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Although your body contains hundreds of hormones, those described below are most commonly associated with age-related hormone decline. These include:
- Cortisol is one of the few hormones that actually increases with age. This hormone, which your body manufactures in the adrenal glands, allows you to cope with stress in a healthy manner as well as build immunity to illness. When the body’s estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone hormones start declining with age, it sometimes tries to convert cortisol to make up for the decline. The result is that you feel chronically fatigued, sick, and unable to handle the stress in your life. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy with Dr. Rubin in Tampa or Naples restores the other hormones to bring cortisol back into balance.
DHEA is a precursor hormone, which means that it must be present for the body to create estrogen and testosterone. Young adults typically have adequate levels of DHEA, but supply is often less than half by the time a person reaches ages 60. Some of the symptoms associated with a low DHEA supply include insulin resistance, high cholesterol, increased areas of fat storage, and high triglyceride levels. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is an easy way to reduce symptoms caused by sex hormone imbalance as well as eliminate metabolic syndrome and general inflammation.
As the primary sex hormone of women, estrogen helps to regulate sexual and reproductive functioning. The symptoms of estrogen imbalance may include irregular menstrual periods, hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, low libido, painful intercourse, and loss of bone mass. Since other sex hormones often decline first, the imbalance results in estrogen dominance. This condition is the main reason that women develop these symptoms prior to menopause. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy brings other hormones into balance with estrogen so women can consistently feel more comfortable.
Your body converts the food you eat into blood sugar to provide you with energy. Insulin, which is manufactured in the pancreas, helps to regulate blood sugar levels. When your body fails to make enough insulin, you could develop pre-diabetes or Type II diabetes. Eating a healthy diet and getting enough exercise are essential to prevent your blood sugar from spiking too high. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy replaces the insulin your body no longer creates on its own to help prevent diabetes or reduce the risk of serious complications if you already have it.
Pregnenolone is made in the mitochondria and is another precursor hormone. Since it naturally declines with age, this has a huge effect on estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone. Some indications that you may have a pregnenolone deficiency include memory loss, joint pain, depression, and feeling like you can’t manage stress like you once did. Balancing pregnenolone with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy helps to alleviate these problems.
Progesterone helps to balance the effects of estrogen in the female body. When it is too low, women may experience uterine fibroids, endometriosis, menstrual irregularity, infertility, and an increased risk of breast or uterine cancer. To improve health as well as comfort, women dealing with a progesterone imbalance should consider Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy in Tampa or Naples.
- This primarily male sex hormone is responsible for sexual and reproductive functioning, development of muscle mass, secondary sex characteristics such as facial hair and a deeper voice, bone density, and energy level. Even though women have only a small amount of testosterone, they too are affected by its decline. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy helps to bring testosterone to levels more common at an earlier stage of life, thereby helping people feel younger and more energetic.
- Thyroid Hormone
Your thyroid sits near the Adam’s apple and is responsible for regulating numerous functions in your body. Having too little thyroid hormone can result in fatigue, weight gain, depression, constipation, and problems performing sexually. Too much of the hormone may produce anxiety, diarrhea, and unplanned weight loss. An imbalance of this hormone can produce significantly more symptoms than any other hormone deficiency. Whether you have hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help you feel better.
