Feel Better, Regardless of Age With Hormone Replacement Therapy
As we age, it is inevitable that our hormone production decreases over time. Although this is a normal aspect of the aging process, this drop in hormonal levels can have a significant effect on how our body operates. Lower hormone levels can bring on a host of unsavory side effects for both men and women.
Are You a Male or Female?
Hormone Imbalance Symptoms
Hormone imbalance can permeate through all aspects of life and cause a wide variety of unwanted symptoms including:
- Weight Gain
- Mood Swings
- Lowered Sex Drive
- Difficulty sleeping
- Aging skin
Note: Symptoms and results may vary between individuals
The Causes of Decreased Hormone Production
WOMEN’S BATTLE WITH MENOPAUSE
As we age, women experience a more marked change when their periods no longer occur. This is known as menopause which is typically accompanied by a rather quick onset of symptoms.
These drastic changes into perimenopause and menopause can occur as early as their 30’s for some women or as late as 50’s for others. Some women even experience an imbalance in their hormone levels before this as a result of having a child or due to some type of hormonal imbalance such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
This leads to drastic alterations in the body’s chemistry that can affect anything from stamina and memory loss, to weight gain and sleepless nights.
MEN’S BATTLE WITH ANDROPAUSE
Men, on the other hand, have a more natural decrease in their levels which can make symptoms more difficult to detect – this process is known as andropause.
Andropause, which is more commonly characterized by the term Low Testosterone, progresses with age and many men begin to not feel like themselves anymore.
Testosterone levels typically peak in your early 20’s and drop steadily every year afterward by an average of 3% a year. As levels drop, so does metabolism and muscle mass, all while body fat increases, and moodiness begins to set in. Libido and sexual performance are also heavily impacted which can cause even more stress and frustration. Forgetfulness and brain fog are usually added on top of everything else.
The signs of aging become more evident with muscle mass decreasing while fat increases, skin thinning, energy levels dropping, and sleeping becomes difficult or less restful.
Hormone Imbalance And the Onset of Adrenal Fatigue
The adrenals are the little pyramids that sit on top of the kidneys, they are responsible for the creation of many hormones including about 20% of the reproductive hormones.
When we experience stress our adrenal glands secrete cortisol to help our bodies manage the stress – in moderation this is a normal and healthy response, but in excess this can cause adrenal fatigue and even failure.
Adrenal fatigue, also known as adrenal dysfunction, causes a reverse in the cortisol curve creating intense sluggishness in the day and a lack of sleep at night for many people. Sex drive and immune system are impacted while metabolism is slowed down. Adrenal function can be tested through a saliva or urine test to determine the extent of fatigue and create a customized treatment plan to restore healthy adrenal function.
The Link Between Erectile Dysfunction & Hormone Imbalances
Men may experience difficulty in the bedroom and it is estimated that 1 in 4 men under the age of 39 experience decreased performance and erectile dysfunction. This number doubles after the age of 50 and continues to rise as men age.

Hormones, Metabolism & Your Thyroid
The thyroid is a butterfly shaped gland located at the base of the neck, responsible for the rate of your whole body’s metabolic function. Thyroid levels play an integral role in metabolism and energy as well as producing hormones for growth and maintenance, moderating body temperature, levels of hydration, and hair or nail growth.
