Understanding Hormone Optimization

According to the "Neuroendocrine Theory of Aging", the major cause of aging is the deterioration of controls that manifest in adult endocrine hormone deficiencies.

In other words, we age because our hormones decline.

We can directly treat the loss of our hormones with balanced bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. Hormone levels can be assessed through testing.

Hormone deficiencies can be restored to the 20-30 year-old level.


In women, hormones such as Estrogen and Progesterone begin to decline in the 30's.
