Your hormones play a vital role in defining who you are. As your hormones flow through your blood, they affect things like the functioning of major systems, emotions, and even your ability to sleep. When hormone levels become unbalanced, they can drastically change the way you feel, effectively changing who you are. Thankfully, hormone therapy gives you the ability to feel like yourself again.
How Do Hormones Affect Your Life?
Maybe you are one of those lucky people who has been healthy your entire life. Getting sick and going to the doctor were things that you never had to worry about. But now it feels like your health is not as stable as it used to be. You find yourself getting sick with greater frequency. You’ve gone from being an energetic person to now lacking the energy to do the basic things you need to get done, not including extra things for fun or entertainment.
What makes matters worse is that the physical strength you’ve always had is not there. The patient, tranquil, calm person you were is gone. Now your friends and family comment that it seems like you get upset for no reason. When you look at yourself in the mirror, you see pockets of fat where they did not exist before. However, your diet and exercise routine have stayed constant. It is as if someone took your world and turned it inside out. All of these symptoms could be from a hormone imbalance and hormone therapy may help.
Hormone Imbalance and the Aging Process
Someone could read the list of symptoms we mentioned in the previous section and think to themselves that all of these things are just a natural part of getting older. While this is true, it does not mean that a loss of energy, a loss of strength, a loss of control over one’s emotions, or putting on weight are a part of the normal aging process. In fact, many people are able to keep a life full of energy and full of strength well into their later years.
A stable reduction in hormone levels is a normal part of getting older. However, not all age-related symptoms are natural. Hormone therapy can help put your body back into balance. It can give you the energy that you need. Hormone therapy can make you feel the way you did a years ago.
