Bioidentical Hormones

Seems everything that happens as we age is harmful. Our vision worsens, we can’t move like we used to, our muscle mass decreases, our immune system no longer functions 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 with The FIRM U. When it comes to relaying messages, inducing reactions, protecting tissue and looking good – it’s all about your hormones. Your hormones are chemical messengers that keep your body functioning optimally. 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.

Most people associate human growth hormone and DHEA with aging, but progesterone, testosterone, estrogen, cortisol and insulin also play a role. When the delicate balance of any one of these hormones is destroyed, it can take a serious toll on your body, mind 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 (such as free testosterone, estradiol, progesterone, free T3 and insulin) that leave people feeling unwell 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.

Most physicians will either medicate or operate if something’s wrong with you or give you general advice like “you need to exercise more and watch what you eat.” We believe most people already know that. Very little is normally done by your doctor for the prevention of diseases before they happen. Our goal is to prevent, reduce or eliminate the need for RX medications. This is what sets The FIRM U apart from other fitness centers. We believe the only medications you should be taking are for conditions you can’t prevent. Medications such as Bioidenticals Hormonal Replacement Therapy (BHRT) replaces what Mother Nature has taken away. We can replace declining hormones with BHRT. BHRT are all natural and plant derive and have the same chemical structure as the ones made in your body, so they are extremely safe and effective when properly prescribed. Many common health and emotional symptoms can be directly related to hormonal imbalance. Once bioidentical hormones are introduced into the body, many symptoms generally ease away and people begin to feel a sense of herself or himself once again.

The Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Our natural sense of well-being is restored when our hormones are in balance. By keeping the hormone foundation restored, we are supporting our immune system and reducing inflammation which can lead to health concerns and diseases. This has tremendous positive benefits on our brain, heart muscle, bones, and sleep. For men, as well as women, bioidentical hormone replacement helps maintain the mental and analytical edge while maintaining a healthy weight, cholesterol level and natural libido.
