How to age with grace?

Updated: Dec 15, 2023



Conventional medicine has always held the belief that:

1.     Aging is inevitable

2.     Progressive deterioration  occurs in our adult years and it cannot be altered.

3.     Diseases of aging, such as heart disease , stroke, cancer and senility are all part of the normal aging process.


The great news is that the downward spiral of physical and mental decline that we have come to accept as a natural part of growing older is becoming recognized as somewhat controllable and preventable. That our quality of life in our later years can be significantly enhanced.

The most effective solution of any disease process is prevention of that disease.


One of the most important and successful treatments is optimal hormone supplementation. Research has shown that maintaining our hormone levels in a youthful state can prevent the debility and illness that accompany the aging process.


Over the last 50 years research in the fields of endocrinology and immunology has improved our knowledge as to how and why we age. The rate and incidence of disease formation as well as the rate of aging are partially controlled by our endocrine and immune system. Communication between these  2 systems are responsible for our adaptation and change of our body in relation to the aging process. It is through hormones that these systems interact to accomplish this mission.


As the levels of hormones decline, so do we decline both mentally and physically. We lose energy, vitality and longevity. By restoring these hormones to their youthful levels, it is now possible to restore our youthful resilience that enables us to cope gracefully with stressors that challenge us everyday.


Hormones will not reverse aging. It will not keep us permanently at one age. We still continue to age and lose cells secondary to a process that is regulated genetically. With hormones we simply slow the precipitous decline that occurs after midlife.


The key is to replenish all of the deficient hormones back to a more youthful balance, producing a synergistic effect between the hormones. Which hormones to replenish, how much to replenish and how to adjust the hormones so that they have synergistic effects is the art and science of optimization of hormones.
