From conception, HORMONES, which are produced by the endocrine glands, serve as messengers from our brain telling our internal organs how to function. A decrease in the production of hormones begins in middle age and continues to diminish in a linear fashion until old age.
Finally, preventive medicine technology has been realized: The insufficiency of hormones has been discovered to be a major element in the process of aging.
America's current medical care system is based on the treatment of disease. It is about first having something negative happen and then trying to fix it after the fact. However, there is a better way. We have the knowledge, technology, and expertise to prevent or delay degenerative disease as well as the signs and symptoms associated with aging using bioidentical hormones in Las Vegas.
Bioidentical hormones are manufactured in the lab to have the same molecular structure as the hormones made by your own body. By contrast, synthetic hormones are intentionally different. Drug companies can’t patent a bioidentical structure, so they invent synthetic hormones that are patentable (Premarin, Prempro and Provera being the most widely used examples).Though bioidentical hormones have been around for years, most practitioners are unfamiliar with them. There are several branded versions now available for use in the kind of hormone replacement therapy (“HRT”) typical of synthetic hormones. This is generally a one-size-fits-all dosage regime.
This new gestalt of treating age as a disease process first started in 1991 by a famous endocrinologist at the Medical College of Wisconsin named Dr. Daniel Rudman. Dr. Rudman studied hormone replacement in older men, the results of which were published in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine. Dr. Rudman stated in an interview, We reversed 10-20 years of the aging process in older men. Fat diminished, muscle tissue and strength increased. There was also increased lean body mass, decreased body fat, increased vertebral bone density, increased skin thickness, increased exercise tolerance and exercise endurance, improved healing and immunity, and a tremendous increase in overall well-being. This was all accomplished by the simple administration of a human growth hormone.
Other scientists have realized the importance of the supplementation of other hormones. Scientists at the Gerontology Research Center of the National Institute of Health have found that reduced sex hormones play an important role in age-related disturbances. These disturbances include: musculoskeletal function, body composition and metabolic function. Combined hormone replacement therapy returns growth hormone and sex hormone levels to levels typical for younger people and has shown additive or synergistic effects. Physical and psychological function is improved, including improvement in cardiovascular function, improved cholesterol levels, increased lean body mass, and improved muscle strength and fitness. Let's take a look at the various hormones and their roles.
Our focus at the Renaissance Medical Centre is optimal health. Regaining and maintaining metabolic and endocrine functions at the upper end of the normal range for your age gives you the best opportunity for a healthy and vigorous life. Patients have found that with the use of bio-identical hormone therapy that their overall energy level increases as well as their sexual energy. They have also noticed a reduction in body fat, an increase in lean muscle, improved cognitive function, lower cholesterol, enhanced mood, improved ability to handle stress, and a stronger immune system allowing them to enjoy life to it fullest.
