Are you looking forward to a fantastic year! I know I am..This year I am dedicated to bringing you emails that give you valuable information about your health.
With the coming of the new year, it’s always good to reflect back on what we have and look forward to what we want to achieve.
This month I wanted to talk about hormones and optimal aging. When it comes to declining hormones, the good news is you’re more mature and the bad news is that you’re getting older. I know that as I’ve gotten older, I’ve noticed that I’m more susceptible to hormonal fluctuations. How about you?
Have you experienced symptoms of hormonal changes? Anxiety, fatigue, hot flashes?
Men and women commonly experience menopausal or andropausal symptoms by the time they hit 50. With luck, you’ve made it this far, but now it’s time to optimize your health and feel great instead of just “OK”.
Women are finely tuned machines and when hormones get out of whack they notice things like:
- Night Sweats
- Hot flashes
- Vaginal dryness
- Anxiety / Depression
- Sleep Disturbances
- Decreased sex drive
- Cold hands and feet
- Weight gain
- Irregular periods
- thinning hair
- loss of skin elasticity
Men are more abstract and notice changes related to:
- Weight Gain
- Brain Fog
- Decrease Sexual Performance
- Inability to Maintain Muscle Mass
- Depression and Anxiety
