As far back as we can remember in human history, man has hoped and searched for the elusive Fountain of Youth. There are myths and stories about the quest for eternal youth. Books, poems, and countless songs have been written on the subject. Every new diet, weight loss aid, beauty product, or surgical procedure promises to make us look and feel younger.
Our culture certainly is obsessed with looking, feeling, and staying young—and with good reason! The health, energy, vitality, and beauty we enjoy in our youth is something we don’t fully appreciate until we begin to lose it. We all want to feel as good as we did when we were in our twenties and thirties. What many people do not realize is that the invincible way we felt during that decade of life was due to an abundance of magical chemical messengers inside our bodies called hormones. Merely restoring that abundance can restore our youth to a surprising extent.
Now, a certain degree of aging is inevitable. We cannot expect to have a babyface, boundless energy, and a child’s spirit forever. We can, however, hold onto a younger, fresher appearance, an active lifestyle, and many of the cherished qualities and sensations of being young longer than we ever thought possible.
After seven years of administering bioidentical hormones to thousands of surprised and happy patients, I can honestly say that Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is the closest thing to the Fountain of Youth available to us right here and now in the twenty-first century.
Aging Early Has Become Acceptable
The medical community and today’s society are perpetuating a myth that the following are acceptable occurrences due to aging (and due to hormonal imbalance):
- Decreased libido as we age
- Loss of interest in sex, vaginal dryness, and unexplained mood swings
- PMS, hot flashes, and night sweats
- Ever-increasing numbers of people being diagnosed with dementia, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes
- Significant weight gain and difficulty losing that weight, regardless of how much you diet or exercise
- Absence of nighttime erections and difficulty maintaining a strong erection during intercourse
- Loss of muscle mass, muscle tone, and weight gain, especially around the waist
- Decreased sexual intimacy in young couples (twenty-five to thirty-five years of age)
- Increased prescribing of multiple anti-depressant medications
These things have become acceptable, and it’s a shame that we, as a society, do not question these occurrences. They may be familiar, but they are certainly not normal. Common is not necessarily synonymous with normal.
The good news is that all these problems can be addressed and remedied.
Over the last five decades, our society has seen an alarming increase in the onslaught and intensity of diseases we have accepted as normal. We have a generation of adults suffering in high numbers from illnesses the previous generation experienced in small quantities. Fifty years ago, conditions such as diabetes, dementia, and Alzheimer’s were far less prevalent. Cardiovascular disease has also skyrocketed. Again, just because the current situation is common, that does not mean that it’s
What is normal for the human body is a perfect state of health, not a state of disease. Just because so many people in our society are ill doesn’t mean we were designed to live in a perpetual state of sickness.
Have you ever stopped to consider that getting older does not have to mean falling apart?
We Are Losing Hormones as We Age
Every one of us longs for health and vitality. We’re aware, in this mega-information era, that it’s common for men and women to experience decreasing hormone levels as they age, resulting in diminished energy and focus, among other things. Hormonal imbalance can be detrimental to health and happiness.
When scientists were seeking to harness nuclear energy, they realized if they fired a neutron of uranium against other uranium atoms, they could create an unbelievably powerful atomic reaction; that was the method used to develop the nuclear bomb. The neutrons released when the atoms split would, in turn, strike and split other atoms. Think about that. Scientists discovered and harnessed a revolutionary power source (sometimes used for good, sometimes for evil).
The same type of reaction happens in your body and mine. Testosterone starts a chain reaction in our bodies. It replenishes our cells, which, in turn, strengthens our organs and systems. Through BHRT, science has identified an effective and safe way to replenish the power source in our bodies.
Did you get that?
No longer must we be resigned to living with the debilitating effects of low hormone levels. No longer do we have to suffer from diseases without having the natural resources and power to fight those diseases. It is a revolutionary concept that has changed the lives of thousands of people—and it can change yours. It can help you get your youth back.
Now, let me be clear: BHRT is not a panacea. It is not a magic wand that can be waved over your body so you will never be sick again. But when your hormone levels return to their ideal levels—to where they should be—your body will be strengthened, and you will have the absolute best chance of aging gracefully and staying healthy and strong.
