Hormones are chemicals produced by glands. There are more than 100 types of hormones in a healthy body. The brain regulates, translates, and interprets its electricity code as hormonal output from the various internal organs. When hormone output is high, both men and women feel healthy, sexy, and young.
As we age, our organs get to a point where they no longer produce their corresponding hormone on their own. The brain tries desperately to resurrect the dying parts of our body by sending more and more electrical signals to our hypothalamus which begins to release hormones to the pituitary gland that simulates the ovaries, testicles, adrenal glands, thyroid, and liver in an attempt to save it. But no such luck. Instead, cortisol increases, and we end up feeling lots of anxiety, and collecting belly fat. Worse, without natural hormone supplementation, these same internal organs will die and drag your entire health down with it.
For many women, perimenopause as well as menopause can look and feel like a march into “shrinkhood”: women lose height, get weaker, lose mental functioning as well as their sexual drive, and notice drying and wrinkled skin as well as decreased sensitivity to touch. Male menopause is commonly referred to as andropause, and is marked by a decline in sexual function.
At Path Medical, we reverse the symptoms of menopause and andropause every single day with our patients. When treated correctly, our patients look and feel better as they lose weight, increase muscle mass, increase libido, increase arousal, increase orgasm, and get rid of their depression.
