Insufficiency of hormones has been discovered to be the major element in the process of aging. From conception hormones serve as messengers from your brain telling your body how to function but a decrease in the production of hormones begins in middle age and continues in a linear fashion until old age. Research from around the world during the last 5 years has lead to the tremendous benefits of hormone replacement therapy. We have begun to change our view of aging that it is normal to deteriorate and we must accept it. We now know that much of the deterioration of age is preventable and physical and psychological function can be improved with hormone replacement therapy! Patients from Orange, Tustin, Irvine, Newport Beach, Villa Park and Orange County are enjoying a better quality of life with bio-identical hormones customized for their individual needs at OC Med Spa.

However, synthetic hormones are simply no replacement for natural hormones. Genetic engineering has now enabled scientists to synthesize all the natural hormones found in our bodies such as the growth hormone, DHEA, estrogen, progesterone, thyroid hormone, testosterone, melatonin, and pregnenolone. After many years of getting poor or no results with conventional Hormone Replacement Therapy using synthetic hormones, natural hormones used in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is proving more effective and safer than any other treatment. Hormones are not drugs; they are natural substances that exist in our body but the doses should never exceed what your body has already been accustomed to in its younger years. They caused no harm in the body at that time and when restored to youthful levels will continue to provide the health and vigor that one loses as they age. When hormones are taken as prescribed and monitored closely they produce no negative side effects. When all the declining hormones are taken together in the correct doses they work with each other to restore and protect the body. Why not replace the body with natural biologically identical hormones. We know that synthetic hormones produce toxic metabolites in the body, whereas natural hormones do not. Studies have shown that altered, unnatural hormones will cause side effects. However, you do have an alternative choice; biologically identical hormones make sense since they mimic structurally, your own body’s hormones.

The basics for optimal health and longevity are proper diet, exercise, nutritional supplementation, and hormone replacement therapy. This stops cellular degeneration and allows regeneration of tissue, healing, and slowing down the aging process. Physical deterioration is not a requirement of growing older. It is now possible to stop much of the undesirable aspects of aging as well as the symptoms and diseases associated with aging. Bioidentical Hormone replacement therapy is an updated science which has been shown to not only prolong life but prolong the quality of one’s life. After a complete laboratory evaluation and a consultation with our physician at OC Med Spa we prescribe a personalized hormone supplementation program for you and monitor until optimal hormone levels have been achieved.
