Physicians believe that hormonal replacement therapy preserves health, beauty and significantly prolongs a woman's youth.
The only two hormones whose production increases with age are leptin, responsible for obesity, and insulin, which leads to diabetes. Production of all other hormones drops. When skin lacks estrogen, the amount of collagen and elastin decreases, skin becomes dry, wrinkles start to appear and the facial contour sags. A decrease in testosterone leads to the formation of cellulite and less muscle mass - the cheeks, buttocks and inner arms start sagging as well. In other words, the female body begins ageing long before menopause.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is aimed at restoring physiological levels of female hormones, mainly estrogen and progesterone in pre- and post-menopausal women. Before menopause, the menstrual cycle is controlled by two hormones that are produced in the ovaries. However, with the onset of menopause (sometimes as early as ten years before), the production of estrogen and progesterone gradually drops and then stops. Accordingly, menstruation becomes irregular before disappearing completely.
A comprehensive consultation with a specialist will identify and work out compensatory measures for deficiencies of sex hormones, thyroid hormone, adrenal glands (DHEA, cortisol, etc.), pituitary gland hormones (vasopressin, growth hormone, oxytocin) and other deficiencies, such as vitamins and minerals. The doctor will give you tailored recommendations for optimal nutrition and lifestyle.
When carried out properly, hormonal treatments have a number of advantages. Monitoring therapy, carefully prepared individual dosages, the constant support of a competent and experienced physician – all of this leads to successful results.
The list of all possible useful properties is too long to bring it here entirely.
