Many patients are unaware of the benefits of hormone replacement therapy, but considering all the misinformation in the media about them it’s not necessarily a surprising fact. Before we jump into all the wonderful benefits of (HRT), let’s first take a closer look at why all hormones are not created equally.
The hormones’ flow begins to slow down as we get older, so it needs – enhancing in order for it to do its job properly, which is to keep the cells and organs in our body healthy, which, in turn, helps keep us living longer, and healthier.
But there is a difference between drugs, and a more natural alternative.
But what about shoving all those questionable drugs off to the side and reaching for a more natural alternative?
In eye-opening health reports from not only the Journal of the American Medical Association, but also from the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins, Harvard Medical, Stanford University…it’s been widely reported that a more natural hormone therapy alternative is thought to have long-term health benefits for both men and women.
Hormones are a liquid chemical that are produced by glands, and, much like sweat secreting from our pores, the hormones secrete from the glands. They drip, if you will, into the bloodstream, where they travel to the distant tissues and organs, where they then bind to the tissues’ and organs’ specific cell sites called receptors.
By binding to receptors, hormones send messages (commands, if you will) to your body to do certain functions, to keep itself healthy:
- stimulation or inhibition of growth
- mood swings
- induction or suppression of apoptosis (programmed cell death)
- activation or inhibition of the immune system
- regulation of metabolism
- preparation of the body for mating, fighting, fleeing, and other activity
- preparation of the body for a new phase of life, such as puberty, parenting, and menopause
- control of the reproductive cycle
- hunger cravings
- Sexual arousal
As you already know, far lower amounts of hormones are released as we get older, and this, in turn, creates havoc in our body, along with aging faster and faster.
For many men…
…when it comes to aging and hormones, they think menopause – women going through mood swings that has many men running for the hills. But, they don’t think of themselves as – “going through the change.”
For women, it is called menopause, for men, it is called andropause.
Andropause affects the man’s:
- sperm quantity
- and quality, erectile dysfunction – along with
- muscle and bone mass,
- more body fat,
- hot flashes,
- mood swings,
- lean body and bone mass…
Any of that sound familiar?
Have you ever thought about the lack of hormones being produced as the culprit?
Makes many of you guys think, doesn’t it?
There was a time when it was just the women using a hormone replacement, or an enhancer, now it’s also the men. And it goes beyond about regaining their sexual appetites, it’s now about feeling better, looking better and slowing down the aging process.
Remember, hormones send messages to our organs to keep them healthy, and if they are no longer flowing as strong as they use to – well, you know the outcome.
Synthetic hormones have extra molecules which are not recognized by the body, so they are not broken down as easily by the body’s enzymes. This means that they could stay in the body longer, and over time they could turn into toxins and carcinogens.
At the Salerno Center, we care about what forms of hormones we give our patients. Dr. Salerno stresses the importance of using only the finest treatments and therapies at his practice. More and more men and woman are hearing about a more natural hormone replacement called bio-identical hormones.
Unlike synthetic hormones, the body has a easier time assimilating bio-identical hormones. That’s because they are exactly identical in molecular structure to the hormones made in the body.
Bio-identical hormones allow patients to regain the happiness of living a hormonally balanced life.
Imagine what that means for your body when you are able to eliminate troubling symptoms and regain your natural vitality. Imagine…
- Introducing Dr. Salerno’s Estro Factor!
Description :: Normalizes estrogen in both men and women. The use of Indole-3-carbinol and its metabolite Diindolylmethane has come into use due to the historical aspects of diets high in cruciferous I3C health.
Why These Natural Ingredients?
Human clinical trials show an improvement in 2/16 hydroxy-estrone ratios in women taking I3C, demonstrating its value in helping lower risk in these women.
I3C is considered one of the main active ingredients accounting for the health benefits found in cruciferous vegetables. I3C, and many of its metabolites including DIM, have been investigated with in vitro, animal and human studies.
