Hormonal Balance


As we age, hormones decline, our vision worsens, we can’t move like we used to, our muscle mass decreases, our immune system doesn’t work like it used to, our libido is at an all-time low and the fat around our belly increases. While the wisdom that comes with age is nice, the wrinkles, ailing joints and general frailty are not. That’s why it is no surprise that anti-aging is such a hot topic. Fortunately, the key to anti-aging is within your reach at The FIRM U.

The Role Hormones Play

Hormones are chemical messengers that keep your body functioning optimally. They play a significant role when it comes to relaying messages, inducing reactions, protecting tissue and looking good.   Hormones are major players in all that you do and all that you are physically…from regulating metabolism and growth to controlling immune function and reproduction.  In addition to human growth hormone and DHEA, progesterone, testosterone, estrogen, cortisol and insulin also play a role in aging.

Hormone Testing

When the balance of any one of these hormones is destroyed, it can take a serious toll on your mind, body  and spirit – and be mistaken as classic signs of aging.  Often, we have found that hormonal imbalance is the greatest hurdle and missing link for our clients over 40 who want to lose fat weight, gain or maintain muscle, have more energy, feel better, and improve overall health.  Doctors customarily don’t test for the hormones that leave people feeling unwell (such as free testosterone, estradiol, progesterone, free T3 and insulin) because it’s not in the standard blood panel protocol and/or insurance won’t cover it. These hormones are just a few of the ones we test for among others.  Download and print The FIRM U’s The FIRM U’s Weight Loss and Hormonal Panel.

Prescription Medications

When we go to the doctor because something is wrong or we are not well, many physicians will medicate or operate or give general advice like “you need to exercise more and watch what you eat.”  We believe most people already know that.   Most doctors do very little to prevent diseases before they occur.  What sets The FIRM U apart from other fitness centers is our goal to prevent, reduce or eliminate the need for RX medications. We believe the only medications you should take are for conditions that can’t be prevented.  Medications like Bioidenticals Hormonal Replacement Therapy (BHRT) replaces what Mother Nature has taken away.   BHRT are natural and plant derived and have the same chemical structure as those made in your body.  This makes them extremely safe and effective when properly prescribed.

The Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Many common health and emotional symptoms can be directly related to hormonal imbalance.  People feel like themselves again and many symptoms ease away after bioidentical hormones are introduced.  Our natural sense of well-being is restored when our hormones are in balance. By keeping the hormone foundation restored, we support our immune system and reduce inflammation that leads to diseases. This has tremendous positive benefits on our brain, heart muscle, bones, and sleep.  BHRT helps men and women maintain mental and analytical edge while maintaining a healthy weight, cholesterol level and natural libido.
