Taking a preventative approach to the effects aging has on our health and choosing to live better now is what “healthy aging” means. Having your hormones well balanced goes hand in hand with optimum health, and balanced hormones are part of the healthy aging model.
Common Symptoms of Unbalanced Hormones
Menopausal symptoms can start as early as the mid thirties and last 10-15 years and is often referred to as Peri-menopause because it is the time around menopause when women begin the transition towards menopause.
Symptoms in Women
Both perimenopause and menopause can present itself with intense symptoms affecting your physical, emotional and mental wellbeing including:
Increased Facial Hair
An integrative approach to healthy aging will include a customized treatment program addressing hormone testing both pre and post menopause, supplements, skin care, proper nutrition, and of course, exercise.
Symptoms in Men
Men can be affected by hormone imbalance too. Most commonly, men suffer from what is termed Andropause. Testosterone along with most major hormones drop steadily as men age leading to declining libido, energy, mood swings, and health in general.
Why Choose The Center for Health & Wellbeing
Interpretation of hormone levels, and what is optimal, can be very different between a physician practicing a purely western model of medicine vs that of a healthy aging physician. As such, it is paramount to align yourself with a physician with an expertise in healthy aging, and one that does not wait for disease to present itself, but instead, takes a preventative approach to help you achieve optimal health and wellbeing, especially for relieving the symptoms of menopause and andropause.
