HORMONES

 

What are Hormones?

Hormones are the body’s messengers that transport information from the brain to the glands, from the glands to the cells and from the cells to the brain.
Hormones rejuvenate, regenerate and restore our bodies.
As doctors, we were taught that as we age, our hormones decline. It is now becoming clear that as our hormones decline, we age!
Hormones are considered the strongest at from age 25-30 years, the same period when the body is at its strongest and healthiest.
Diet and exercise will not be as effective if your hormones are not balanced correctly.


Why Hormones Decline

Hormones decline as we age every year after the age of 30.
The human body was never designed to live as long as we are living today. Advances in healthcare, vaccinations, sanitation and food preservatives have drastically increased life span. However, the glands that produce our hormones do not regenerate and continue to decline, producing fewer hormones with each passing year.
As we age, it becomes increasingly important for both men and women to keep their hormones balanced to protect against fatigue, mood swings, disease, obesity and to enjoy an overall healthier sense of well being.


Natural Hormones vs. Synthetic Hormones

Synthetic hormones, like Provera or Premarin, derived from plant progesterone and animal estrogens, are chemicals that act as toxins in the body. Because they are not natural to the human body, we can not metabolize them properly.
BodyLogicMD only uses natural bioidentical hormones. Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones or natural hormones are replicas of the body’s own natural hormones. They’re made from soy, yams and other plant extracts, which are changed in a lab to be biologically identical to the same hormones your body makes.
For optimal safety and results, BodyLogicMD supplements only hormones that are low, evaluates client’s symptoms and retests hormone levels regularly.
