As your body makes the transition from young adulthood to middle age and eventually into old age, it undergoes many physical, mental, and emotional changes along the way. For some people, these changes make them feel old long before they are ready for it. The hormonal changes in both men and women can be especially challenging.
Some of the specific problems experienced by both genders include:
- Persistent fatigue
- Irritability, anxiety, and depression
- Difficulty with sustained mental focus
- Decreased sexual libido
- Weight gain, especially in the abdominal area
Additionally, men and women may struggle with gender-specific issues related to hormone imbalance. Erectile dysfunction is a common problem for middle-aged and older men while women may experience symptoms of sexual dysfunction as well. Unfortunately, a lot of people internalize the message that these problems are a natural part of getting older and there is nothing they can do about them. Doctor Maehara, who specializes in anti-aging treatments and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), wants you to know this is not true. A long-lasting solution to the discomfort of aging is closer than you might think.
Your Symptoms Are Not As Unrelated As They May Appear
For most people, the symptoms of hormone imbalance, dominance or deficiency can come on gradually and they don’t realize that the many new issues that have developed up over the past several years are related. This is especially true of men since their hormones decline at a much slower rate than women. Even though there is a marked decrease in testosterone as early as age 30, it typically takes several years for men to feel the effects. That is because the average man loses one percent of his testosterone annually for the remainder of his life.
While women can have symptoms of perimenopause for up to 10 years before they are officially menopausal, they tend to make the connection to hormonal imbalance faster than men. That is because women know to expect these bodily changes and men often do not. The medical evidence to support andropause in men, a process similar to menopause in women, has only recently gained acceptance in the larger medical community.
How Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Makes You Feel Young Again
Since imbalanced hormones directly cause many of the unpleasant changes of aging, bringing them into balance can help to improve your symptoms rapidly. However, this doesn’t always happen with medications and other therapies prescribed by most traditional doctors. The main reason for this is that doctors who practice traditional medicine usually prescribe pharmaceutical drugs to address symptoms as they present themselves, instead of a comprehensive treatment plan that considers the patient as a whole. Some people may show improvement on these drugs, but many others show no changes at all, some actually have their symptoms increase in severity or become complicated by unpleasant side effects of the medication.
