A woman's body begins to age long before menopause. Take action today.
The only two hormones whose production increases with age are leptin, which is responsible for obesity, and insulin, which leads to diabetes. The production of all other hormones decreases. When the skin lacks oestrogen, the amount of collagen and elastin decreases, the skin dries out, wrinkles begin to appear and facial contours slacken. The decrease in testosterone leads to the formation of cellulite and less muscle mass - the cheeks, buttocks and inner arms begin to sag as well. In other words, the female body begins to age long before the menopause.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) aims to restore physiological levels of female hormones, mainly oestrogen and progesterone in pre- and post-menopausal women. Before menopause, the menstrual cycle is controlled by two hormones produced in the ovaries. However, with the onset of menopause (sometimes up to ten years before), the production of oestrogen and progesterone gradually decreases and then stops. Consequently, menstruation becomes irregular before it disappears completely.
In a comprehensive consultation with a specialist, compensatory measures for deficiencies of sex hormones, thyroid hormone, adrenal glands (DHEA, cortisol, etc.), pituitary hormones (vasopressin, growth hormone, oxytocin) and other deficiencies such as vitamins and minerals will be identified and worked out. Your doctor will give you tailor-made recommendations for optimal nutrition and lifestyle.
When carried out correctly, hormone treatments have a number of advantages. Controlled therapy, carefully prepared individual doses, constant support from a competent and experienced doctor - all this leads to successful results.
