Hormone Balancing - A Personalized Program
A critical system within the human body is the endocrine system. It utilizes chemical compounds called hormones that are produced and regulated by body to communicate messages to different organs throughout the body. The endocrine system is critical to regulating a person's mood, growth and development, sexual desires and reproduction. The activity of the system changes during different stages of human development and specific glands that produce hormones can increase or decrease over years.
Hormone Replacement Therapy has been a growing area of interest in the medical field specifically in relationship to anti-aging research and treatment. People are looking to maintain a level of vitality, energy and sexual activity much longer than traditionally expected. Simultaneously people have become increasingly impacted by high levels of stress, lack of sleep and longer work hours that negatively impact the functioning of that body. These circumstances can result in early onset menopause, andropause and other conditions that can result in moodiness, chronic fatigue and lower than desired sexual interest and performance. The endocrine system is one in which the levels of specific hormones when maintained over a daily, weekly, monthly, yearly basis can maintain a desired level of functionality and a decrease or absence of undesirable conditions.
