As we age, our bodies experience a number of changes. Although these changes are normal, it doesn’t mean you have to live with them. At 20 Something Anti Aging Center, we want you to look and feel your best regardless of your age. That’s why we offer a number of anti-aging services, including hormone replacement therapy and IV therapy. You are warmly invited to find out how you can benefit from these exciting services.
What’s Going On with My Hormones?
Maybe you don’t give much thought to your reproductive hormones. They are doing their job behind the scenes. As long as you feel like yourself, you don’t worry about your hormone levels. It’s another story when your hormone levels drop. A decrease in reproductive hormones is a common dilemma for men and women. It typically strikes when middle-age is setting in. It’s the time when the reproductive system is getting ready for a slowdown. When this change happens at a slow pace, people don’t even notice it is happening. If the hormone shift is extreme, you’re going to feel it.
As we get older, the rate at which our bodies produce hormones drops dramatically. This can present itself with side effects such as a lowered libido, hot flashes, pain during intimacy and weight gain. When your reproductive hormones decrease in a dramatic way, you are going to notice. You’ll be tired. You will feel rundown. It won’t matter how early you go to bed or how late you sleep in the morning. Chances are you are going to have a tough time sleeping. This will only aggravate the problem. You’ll be moody. You won’t have your normal amount of pep for your workout, household chores, or daily routine. It will be hard to keep up. You may not have any stamina. Libido can drop dramatically as well. You are probably going to be in for a battle to lose weight because your metabolism has come to a grinding halt.
Signs You Need Hormone Replacement Therapy
If you have become apathetic about sex, there is a good chance that your testosterone production has waned significantly. Both men and women require testosterone for many important bodily functions, including libido. At age 30, men produce testosterone at a 1% slower rate each year. By the time they are 50, they need to consider whether hormone replacement therapy can help them enhance their quality of life.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to describe a hot flash accurately. However, if you have had one, you know what it was. You also know you need to look into hormone replacement therapy. This is one of the clearest signs that your hormone levels are changing.
Night sweats are a nightmare. If you have never had a hot flash before, count yourself lucky. However, you do not need to settle for waking up in the middle of the night with your pajamas soaking wet. This isn’t just annoying or uncomfortable. It also affects your quality of sleep. If you don’t seek professional help, you can find yourself with a host of health conditions that come with chronic sleep deprivation.
If you find yourself suddenly putting weight on around your core, your hormones could be imbalanced. Some people, especially women, naturally carry their weight around their abdomen. But if you notice an abnormal amount of weight gain around your midsection, schedule a consultation and have your hormone levels checked. The weight gain may be caused by imbalanced hormone levels.
Do you sleep well, eat fruits and vegetables and work out? Do you still feel sluggish after doing everything right? If so, you need to check out hormone replacement therapy. Most of the energy you had in your 20s was thanks to properly balanced hormones. With the help of bio-identical hormone replacement, you can get your body back in sync and boost your energy levels beyond your wildest dreams.
Unfortunately, fatigue is also a symptom of depression, and depression can be caused by imbalanced hormone levels. Balanced levels of hormones are essential for the regulation of your mental health. Depression caused by hormone deficiencies can also present physical symptoms, such as chronic pain. If you feel yourself becoming anxious, irritable or apathetic towards life, ask our professionals about how hormone replacement therapy can help.
A Closer Look at Hormone Replacement Therapy
The goal of hormone replacement therapy for men and women is to balance your hormone levels. This will help you to feel like yourself again. Your body will respond to the therapy, making you ready to take on the world.
It all starts with a consultation. You’ll have an examination. Our professional will ask questions about your symptoms. Expect blood work. A blood test will be able to indicate if your hormone levels have dropped in a significant way. If this is the source of your problems, we will work closely with you to choose a hormone replacement therapy regimen that suits you best. You’ll also check in regularly to see how your therapy is working for you.
What is IV Therapy?
We all know optimal hydration and vital nutrients are a huge factor in your overall health. Now with IV therapy, you can take ownership of one of the most important facets of your body operating properly. This therapy uses intravenous fluids that hydrate and replenish your bodily tissues. Using IV fluids has the unique advantage of bypassing your digestive system, which allows your body to more readily absorb these vital fluids and essential nutrients.
The Benefits of IV Therapy
You’ve heard of the saying, “You are what you eat.” To speak correctly, you are what you digest. Many people lack hydration and vital nutrients due to their body’s inability to digest or process the foods they are consuming, or not ingesting the right foods. When an individual is lacking these nutrients, many of their most important biological functions will shut down. In addition to feeling sluggish, you might also have a tough time focusing on complex tasks. This often occurs after difficult work weeks and lengthy workouts, but you might also notice those issues after a long weekend. While drinking plenty of water and getting some rest should help with those problems, sometimes this isn’t enough. This is where IV therapy comes into play.
With IV therapy, the process of directly infusing your body helps to guarantee the absorption of the fluids and nutrients by delivering them to the tissues throughout the body that need them most. This can lead to improvements across almost all functions of the body.
Answering Your Questions
How Does It Work?
This procedure has been around for many years, and it is often used to minimize the side effects of other medical issues. An IV drip is basically a cocktail of vital molecules delivered intravenously.
How Quickly Does IV Therapy Work?
Due to this therapy’s ability to deliver fluids and nutrients to the body, you can feel the positive effects of the fluids, electrolytes, and vitamins much faster than traditional ingestion methods while also enjoying high rates of absorption. When you drink water or an electrolyte beverage, it can take well over an hour for those liquids to make their way into your soft tissue. With IV therapy, those vital liquids are going to be in your body in a matter of minutes.
How Long Do the Treatments Take to Perform?
The length of the treatment can vary based on the treatment you choose. Generally speaking, the treatments are quick and convenient.
When is the Best Time to Get This Treatment?
Anytime is a great time to treat your body to this unique treatment. This can be true for before or after a strenuous workout or even to help recover from certain conditions and illnesses. You can use this therapy to prevent dehydration or to treat dehydration that has already occurred.
Is IV Therapy Safe?
Definitely; IV therapy is completely safe. The treatments use a sterile procedure to administer the intravenous fluids, and we source ingredients from reputable suppliers.
Is It Uncomfortable?
Many patients report hydration therapy to be virtually discomfort-free. Treatments are performed in the comfort of our office and are designed to be quick and easy.
Who is a Good Candidate for IV Therapy?
Due to the gentle and low-risk nature of this treatment, pretty much everyone can enjoy the health benefits offered by IV therapy. Of course, our staff will consult with you to ensure the therapy is the right fit for you.
How Often is the Therapy Recommended?
We design treatments to fit with the individual’s needs and goals. Our staff will discuss the best recommendation for your situation during a consultation.
Is IV Therapy Right for Me?
IV therapy can be an excellent way to take charge of your health and wellness and provide your body with the vital fluids and nutrients you may not be getting through your diet. With that being said, the only way to know for sure whether or not the therapy can work for you is by consulting with a qualified professional. That’s one of the reasons why an initial consultation is so important.
