|Life Without Hormones|
Many of my patients ask me how long should they take their hormones.
I can't imagine NOT having my hormones!
I wish I could implant a testosterone pellet that would last for the next 20 years.
Bio identical hormones are the next best thing to the modern day proverbial "fountain of youth".
Hormones are 'messengers'. They tell cells what to do. Without hormones every cell in our body would cease to get the information transmitted by hormones. Our bodies continue to function, but at a distinct deficiency level. To use a poor analogy of your car, it would be like turning on your radio, windshield wipers, or A/C switch and having nothing happen. You could still drive, and get from location A to B, but not as easily or comfortably as before.
It is well known that the incidence of many diseases is increased as we age such as heart disease, osteoporosis, cancer, dementia and auto immune diseases.
Is it coincidental that this happens commensurate with the decline in our hormones ?
It is well known that testosterone in men makes the prostate healthier, lowers the risk of heart disease, maintains brain function,reduces the incidence of insulin resistance, and improves cholesterol levels. In women bio identical estrogen, not taken orally, lowers the risk of heart disease,osteoporosis,autoimmune disease and dementia. There is now some early indications that it may even lower the risk of breast cancer. Imagine that! Just two or three years ago this was unheard of, and in many medical circles still is.
People are living longer now than ever. What would it be like to live the last third of life without hormones?
Low energy, deteriorating bones, NO LIBIDO, loss of hair(all over), wrinkling skin, declining brain function, declining muscle mass, increased generalized weakness and the list goes on.
Replacing our declining hormones with chemically identical hormones that function identically to our hormones is health enhancing in all ways.
I can respect people who say they want to "age naturally". But if there is new knowledge that can enhance my quality of life, I am inclined to take advantage of that knowledge and live life to the fullest degree possible. After all, I only have this one shot at it !
If you are interested in maximizing your health please call the office and schedule a consult with Dr. Liebowitz to discuss your options for hormone replacement therapy and other health enhancing modalities.
I love success stories!
There is no doubt that men can lose weight easier and faster than women. Men have more muscle mass therefore by eating correctly and exercising regularly they are more readily able to boost their metabolism and lose weight faster.
However, this woman beats all odds.
I gave her my 'Paleo Smoothie Recipe'
and informed her how it was a complete meal. She took the information to heart .
Unbeknownst to me, she began using the smoothie for all of her meals exclusively, three times per day and nothing else. Please note, I did NOT recommend she do that. However, she reported back to me that she lost 30 pounds in
6 weeks and never felt better.
I would have never suspected that !
