Our hormones do not decline because we age, we age because our hormones decline.
Hormone deficiency can lead to mood swings, weight gain, chronic fatigue, foggy memory, uncontrolled anger, decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, loss of emotional stamina, anxiety, depression or insomnia.
Low testosterone in men and low estrogen levels in women increase the small lipid particles and the risk of heart attacks. Traditional doctors measure your hormones and declare that even though your levels are a fraction of what they used to be when you were younger, they are within the normal limits ‘for your age’. When 80% of people are walking around with a problem, then it becomes ‘normal’ to be like them. Normal is far from ‘ideal’ and contributes to accelerated ageing.
