How Hormones Fit Into the Aging Process
Hormones are molecules that are manufactured in the endocrine glands, that include adrenal glands, testes, ovaries, thyroid, pituitary, and pineal gland. As the body ages, the levels of hormones diminish. In addition, the specific hormone receptor sites in the cells tend to change with age and become less sensitive and more resistant to hormone stimulation, resulting in a decrease in cellular function, cellular repair, protein synthesis and cell reproduction.
The declines in our hormone levels result in the signs and symptoms of aging that can only be reversed by correcting our hormones to optimal levels to improve hormone effectiveness. To ensure that our hormones work effectively and efficiently, we must also incorporate healthy eating, exercise, the correction of neurotransmitter imbalances, natural supplements and natural stress healing.
Healthy Aging Is a Choice
As the levels of hormones decline, so do our physical and mental capabilities. We lose our energy, vitality, strength, physique and health. The deterioration seen in normal aging results in osteoporosis, coronary artery disease, muscle atrophy, sleep disorders, depression, mood disorders and decreased sociability. Much can be related to hormone deficiency.
By restoring these hormones to more youthful levels, it is now possible to restore our zeal for life and regain the energy necessary to strengthen and bolster our bodies as well as our minds. We can improve and reverse many of the symptoms and signs that we have come to associate with aging.
We can also regain the youthful resilience that protects us from the stressors of daily life.
