AGING; IT ISN’T JUST FOR THE OLD ANYMORE

“FOREVER YOUNG” IS ONLY A BOB DYLAN SONG

No one sings the praises of getting old. With the possible exception of hormone-raging teens, just about everyone wants to look and feel younger. Cher claims she can hold a plank for 15 minutes. Tina Turner can dance anyone under the table. Age is all the rage. The search for eternal youth and the ethos that we all deserve to look 25 forever is driving an anti-aging market to the tune of $200 billion. That’s a lot of zeros.

At Denver Hormone Health, They Know All Too Well.

SLOW DOWN, YOU’RE AGING TOO FAST

When it comes to aging, there are a lot of wrinkles in most people’s thinking. Age and wisdom aren’t always linked. The time comes when you’re of a certain age, just not quite certain what it is. You look at your body and think “nooooooo”. “How did this happen? Your muscles don’t tone to your satisfaction (squats be damned). You’re losing hair (everywhere). You’re gaining a beer belly (when you only indulge in the occasional Pinot Grigio). Sleep calls. (Almost as incessantly than robocalls). You start having senior moments. (You’re not even on the near side of 40). And sex? (Oh, you remember that. You remember it, but you’re not up for it. No pun intended.) You could blame not eating right, not exercising enough, partying too much, smoking, excessive caffeine and well, any number of questionable lifestyle choices. But there’s a good chance that premature aging is the result of hormone imbalances.

At Denver Hormone Health, Hormones are all They Do.

HORMONES AS YOU AGE

Your hormones are chemical messengers that keep your body functioning. From regulating metabolism and growth to controlling immune function and reproduction, hormones are major players in all that you do and all that you are – physically at least. They keep your body healthy by controlling the rate at which new cells grow and by directing your body systems to work in harmony. As we age, changes naturally occur in the way body systems are controlled. Some target tissues become less sensitive to their controlling hormone. The amount of hormones produced may also change. Blood levels of some hormones increase, some decrease, and some are unchanged. Hormones are also broken down (metabolized) more slowly. When any hormones are out of balance, age becomes not just a stage of mind, but a stage of body. Everything can age; your heart, lungs, brain, kidneys, muscles, bones…you get the discouraging picture.

At Denver Hormone Health, They Can Brighten That Picture.

HORMONES THAT AGE YOU

There are some 50 different hormones driving your bus, but here are a few that can really affect the aging process:

  • DHEA
  • HGH (human growth hormone)
  • Progesterone
  • Testosterone (men and women)
  • Estrogen (women and men)
  • Cortisol

It would take a tome of explanation to understand the function of all these hormones. What you need to understand is how any imbalance can age you before your time.
