Hormones are glandular products created by the body which are released into the bloodstream where they help regulate fundamental bodily functions on a cellular level. These functions include regulation of growth, maturation, regeneration (healing and recovery), reproduction and supporting the function other hormones. Dozens of glands release hormone molecules in your system. They travel through the blood until reaching a cell with a receptor that fits. Then, the molecule attaches to the receptor and sends a signal inside the cell. The signal may tell the cell to either produce a certain protein or to multiply.
In healthy adults, hormones are at their peak between the ages of 20 to 25. Although this youthful time is typically marked with vitality and stamina, poor diet and a lack of exercise can negatively affect the health status.Back to Top
At age 21, we have ten times more growth hormone in our blood than at age 60. This hormone decline accelerates in our thirties (about 14% per decade after age 25) and consequently, the obvious signs of aging begin. The complex endocrine system of our body controls the hormones that regulate many body processes. As we age, these systems become less efficient, leading to changes in our bodies such as menopause and andropause. After age 35, our body continues to manufacture human growth hormone (HGH) but releases less of it. The decline of HGH with age, sometimes referred to as somatopause, is directly associated with many of the symptoms of aging such as: gray hair, shrinking of organs (i.e. brain, kidneys; heart), increased risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis.Back to Top
The process for Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) benefits both men and women by first identifying which hormones are deficient and then administering what is needed hormonally to the body through a carefully analyzed, custom-tailored regimen. As we age, hormone levels change and hormone restoration is needed to function optimally. Bio-identical hormones are safer, possessing the same properties as hormones which are made naturally by the human body, matching the original and following normal metabolic pathways.Back to Top
Testosterone levels in men decline steadily with age. Testosterone is the hormone which helps maintain a man's mental focus, energy level, metabolic activity, muscle mass, retarding weight gain and strengthening bones.Back to Top
Regardless of age, if a woman's hormones (estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone) are deficient and/or unbalanced, she is prone to suffering the ill effects of hot flashes, night sweats, depression; decreased vaginal moisture, fatigue and weight gain individually or in combination.Back to Top
On average, men and women begin experiencing a decline in hormone levels by their mid to late twenties. By age 30 symptoms associated with decline are noticeable. The best time to consider replacing hormones is between age 30 and 35. However, it is never too late. We have men in their 80s that have found a new life as a result of our therapies.Back to Top
Hormone Replacement Therapy is used to restore hormones to their optimum youthful levels. You need a blood test to determine your hormone profile, to determine if you qualify for HRT, and to calculate your required replacement dosages. Since most hormones used in HRT are dispensed by prescription only, you can't obtain them without a physician's approval.Back to Top
Because bio-identical hormones are just like the ones made in your body, there are relatively few side effects. Side effects occur mainly when the dosage of hormone is too high for the individual or imbalances are produced. Eternal Vitality monitors and reevaluates each patient consistently to ensure balanced dosage.Back to Top
Yes. There have been numerous studies recently published that confirm the safety of bio-identical hormone replacement. Remember, all of Eternal Vitality?s programs are supervised and medically monitored to offer you complete confidence and security. Only pharmaceutical grade hormones are used in our preparations.Back to Top
While it varies from person to person, and depends on which hormone therapy program is being used, you can expect, on average, to see results within three to six months.Back to Top
Hormones may be replaced separately or in any combination only if medically necessary. The combination of HGH with another hormone like testosterone is by far the most effective when compared to single hormone therapy. Scientists and anti-aging doctors believe the synergy of this combination occurs because HGH pushes the testosterone (and other hormones) into the tissues and cells where they are needed. Taking both HGH and testosterone increases the effectiveness of many types of replacement therapies. What's interesting is, HGH levels are optimally restored when other key hormones, such as Testosterone are also balanced.Back to Top
