Hormone Replacement Therapy Restores Confidence and So Much More
Hormone replacement therapy can improve your sex life, and do so much more!
When most people think of hormone therapy, or Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) they primarily think of women and the problems associated with menopause.
But, aging men experiencing the problems with declining testosterone or Low-T, can benefit from hormone therapy as well.
Hormone therapy does target the replacement or optimization of the so-called “sex hormones,” – testosterone and estrogen – however those are not the only hormones that decrease over time.
As anti-aging physicians and age-management professionals, we know that there are many hormones that must react and interact together to keep you performing at your best.
These include thyroid hormones, Human Growth Hormone (HGH), and other hormones related to regulating metabolism, and various bodily functions. In fact, stamina, strength, focus, concentration and mental acuity, can all be improved by bringing your hormones back to your individual proper balance.
This is a state that we in the anti-aging community like to refer to as Homeostasis.
Hormone Replacement and Job Performance
We know that optimizing testosterone in both men and women can improve libido and sexual performance, but there is increasing evidence that hormone therapy can also help you outside of the bedroom.
Recent studies have found definitive links between decreased levels of testosterone in men and cognitive difficulties.
Woman have long reported decreased concentration and an inability to focus, as a symptom of menopause.
In this context, difficulty in concentrating is defined as an “inability to concentrate on everyday as well as unusual or complex tasks.” You can certainly see how that can affect your job performance!
Your ability to focus, or concentrate on a task, is part of the complex relationship of the neurotransmitters in the brain which regulate all cognitive functions. Serotonin, norepinephrine, and acetylcholine, in particular, are known to impact memory and other cognitive abilities.
Brain mapping studies have shown that low levels of these neurotransmitters can lead to short-term memory issues and difficulty concentrating.
Estrogen in women, and testosterone in men, both affect the production of all of these neurotransmitters.
Today’s job market is increasingly competitive, particularly for those who have been in the workforce for many years. Aging workers in high-profile, competitive fields, can feel particularly pressured to keep up with, let alone stay ahead of their younger rivals.
Hormone therapy can give you the competitive age you need to stay on top of your game!
Hormone Replacement Therapy Beyond the Bedroom
Testosterone therapy specifically, has been inextricably linked to sexual function in the public’s mind. However, HRT as practiced by age-management professionals is more about overall “lifestyle enhancement.”
Yes, we can use Hormone Replacement Therapy to help men and women regain their performance and confidence in the bedroom. In addition, we can also use it as part of an overall wellness program, designed to invigorate every aspect of your life.
With that in mind however, it is extremely important that you work with, and seek your hormone therapy only from well-qualified and experienced medical professionals.
Once your symptoms and hormone levels are properly evaluated through sophisticated testing and diagnosis, you may benefit from testosterone treatment, growth hormone therapy, or any combination thereof. Or, you may also benefit from new and emerging all natural treatments for lifestyle enhancement such as Platelet Rich Plasma therapies.
You do not have to accept slowing down as you age as inevitable! It all comes down to this; the latest science is finding that aging is not a fact, but a condition.
Therefore, like many other conditions that doctors can regulate via hormone therapy, aging too, can be managed, so you can continue to do the things you enjoy in life!
