In the most blunt terms, aging of the human body can be characterized as growing ‘fatter, drier, shorter, and slower’. These physiological changes are normal – no one expects a 70 year-old to beat a 20 year-old in a footrace, a wrestling match, or a swimsuit competition – but most of us want to stay as fit as we can, for as long as we can. Hormonal balancing – replacing what our body is no longer producing on its own – can help us manage some of the more unpleasant functional declines of the natural aging process.
Bio-identical hormone therapy is not a cure-all. But in conjunction with positive changes in nutrition and lifestyle it provides a viable alternative to many pharmaceutical therapies, and has produced good results in restoring people to their former vitality.
