What are Bioidentical Hormones?
Are you tired of not physically or mentally feeling or looking like your younger self? The medical professionals at California Longevity & Vitality Medical Institute ® completely understand. Whether you are 75, 65, or even 35, the effects of aging are not much fun! It is natural to get older; everyone does. However, the effects of aging that we see and experience are not entirely due to how many birthdays we have or how many candles are on the cake. For example, a gradual decline in healthcan occur due to exposure to a multitude of toxins. Yet, we might assume that bags under the eyes or aches and pains are just part of turning 40 years old. Without years of exposure to diesel exhaust on highways, without harsh chemicals and pesticides on our land or in our air and water, and without over-processed, nutrient-poor, preserved food items and junk food in our diet to contend with, who knows how much more efficiently our bodies (and minds) would operate, even at 40, 50, or 70 years old? We live in a world that has become more or less out of balance with the life-sustaining processes of Nature over the last 100 years. As a direct result, we too, have become out of balance with the nature and functioning of our own bodies! Our bodies are amazing “machines” but why is it that we hear about so many more people getting cancer at younger and younger ages now? It is beginning to dawn on many people that cancer and other ailments might not be genetically set in stone or due to old age. When we are stressed by our hectic and out-of-balance modern lives, what do we do? Do we smoke or drink compulsively, or do we have other unhealthy habits that lead to more stress, even though we are told these responses to stress take years off our life expectancy? Could it be that those unhealthy habits and, perhaps, lack of exercise also take away our quality of life, regardless of how old we are getting? In actuality, many so-called symptoms of aging are the cumulative effect of all the bad habits, food or drink excesses, toxins, or other unhealthy coping-skills or obsessions. Yet, we continue to assume that the visible signs and experiences of aging are only caused by getting older, that we can’t do anything about them, and that we just have to make the best of a bad situation. Wait just a minute there. Why do we assume that we must tolerate and accept the signs of aging, when it appears that the natural process of aging has been unnaturally accelerated in our bodies?
Natural Solutions to the problems of Aging!
In the past, when there was no solution for this problem, it might not have made a difference whether the effects of aging were due solely to how old we were or actually a consequence of how we lived. Now, however, things are different. It does make a difference when you realize that your age is not the real problem anymore. Applied science and medical research have shown that there are safe, natural ways to rejuvenate our bodies, slow down or reverse the effects of aging, and look and feel younger by strengthening all the physical systems of our body and bringing them back into their natural balance.
Fight the effects of aging with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy!
Unlike, hormone replacement therapy which disregards patients’ needs and actual responses to the treatment, prescribed natural cures such as Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) do revolve around the patients’ perceived needs, the needs of your body indicated by lab results, and the actual responses that you experience. For example, low-dose adjustive hormone therapy, a form of bioidentical hormone therapy, is very different from prescribing hormone drugs like Premarin.
