What is hormone balance?
Hormones are chemicals within our bodies responsible for many things including the regulation of our metabolism, immune function, blood pressure, sugar levels, body temperature, as well as regrowth and repair of damaged tissue. Each of us has about 60 trillion cells which must communicate properly with each other in order to carry out their intended functions. Hormones are the chemical messengers which transfer this information between our cells.
Traveling through the bloodstream, hormones are able to enter our cells via receptor sites, and flip the switches that control our growth and development, physical health, and mental well-being.
Hormones accomplish their tasks through a delicate balancing act, working in harmony with each other at just the right levels. When these proportions are correct, the body responds with peak performance. When their balance is lost, however, a hormone deficiency or excess can cause health disorders, including a host of mental and physiological symptoms, and disease.
What Causes of Hormone Imbalance?
As we get older, our various hormone production levels naturally decrease. This will happened at slightly different times, in different degrees, for different people. Aging, however, is only one of the factors affecting our hormonal production and balance. The food we eat, the exercise we give our bodies, the toxins we expose ourselves to, and the stress we live under all have a powerful influence on our hormonal systems.
At what age should a person start treatment at BHRC?
A person doesn’t need to begin hormone optimization therapy unless deficient. Standard practices recommends the initial baseline evaluation begin at the age of 35 years or older.It should be noted that individuals under 35 years facing developmental difficulties and the symptoms of a deficient adult could also be candidates. Comprehensive blood tests and assessments help us determine exactly where each individual is deficient—and how we can best help.
What age is too old to start hormone replacement therapy?
Age is not a barrier. Many people over 60 erroneously believe it’s too late. On the contrary, older adults are likely to have greater deficiencies; therefore, the response to hormone optimization and supplementation is usually excellent and almost immediate. Early intervention can reduce rapid advancement of diseases, such as osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s. Less progress is expected when such conditions are advanced.
What happens if I stop the hormone replacement program?
The BHRC age management program improves health, vitality and vigor. Should you elect to stop, aging won’t accelerate; the body will again begin to age at the normal rate. Initial benefits will fade over time; however, all is not lost because your body did benefit from the program to some degree.
Will BHRC take over as my doctor and healthcare facility?
No, definitely not. Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center is a wellness program, happy to communicate with your current healthcare team. We encourage you to continue usual visits with your regular doctors.
Will the BHRC treatment interfere with currently prescribed medications?
In some instances, medications may actually be reduced or no longer needed. Your BHRC doctor will consider these issues and advise you, working with your personal physician, if you choose.
Is hormone replacement therapy safe?
First of all, BHRC uses natural hormones, not the derivative of other substances, such as the heavily-prescribed “Premarin” synthetic formulated from pregnant mare’s urine. Secondly, we use replacement levels of hormones, i.e. levels the body was accustomed to in earlier years. Thirdly, reputable studies using these therapies have reported only positive results.
