If we could point a finger at just one hormone responsible for women getting “cranky” as they get older, that woul be the HGH hormone.
When we are young, HGH (Human Growth Hormone) provides the body with all the physical and mental attributes of youthfulness such as: creativity, a sense of adventure, mental focus, willingness to try new things, and a passionate interest in people and things. Like many other hormones, HGH peaks in the early 20’s and then starts a downward slide. By the time you reach 50, you have half the amount you had as a 20-something.
When you lose HGH, you lose those great physical and mental qualities of youthfulness. They are often replaced by cynicism, negativity, the loss of enthusiasm and the inability to share, innovate or compromise. Then there’s the appearance of flabby abdomens and weak muscles. No wonder the stereotype of “cranky old women” lives on. It’s caused by a physical fact of life … loss of HGH.
The good news is: it’s possible to mitigate the crankiness and flabbiness with a professionally customized HGH therapy program.
Nobody likes mental fogginess
Once upon a time, not so long ago, you were probably a multi-tasker, a master juggler taking care of family, work and social obligations without batting an eye.
But lately, you can’t even seem to finish writing an email, and your keys and glasses are never where you left them. Your lack of focus, forgetfulness and mental fogginess have you thinking you’re turning into your old Aunt Dotie. Now that’s scary!
But don’t worry … it’s not you, it’s your hormones. As age disrupts the perfect hormonal balance we had when we were younger, it is not just the physical body that suffers. We are affected mentally as well.
Restoring the hormonal balance for the body and the mind is what Hormone Therapy is all about. When it comes to mental fogginess, some hormones are more suspect than others. Estrogen, progesterone, and HGH (Human Growth Hormone) all play a part in our mental states. As they decline with age, so does our focus and sharpness.
The good news is: once our physician determines which of these hormones is causing the trouble, rebalance is not only possible, but extremely beneficial.
