Hormones are vital in protecting and telling the body what to do. An important part of age management medicine is measuring and, where necessary, supplementing important hormones that decline, but contribute to longevity. Often patients come to the Baucom Institute with complaints of fatigue, decreased libido, poor concentration, and weight gain despite proper exercise and nutrition. The missing piece to their puzzle is often hormonal restoration and balance. When we restore and balance hormones to their youthful level, we use bio-available hormones. These bio-available hormonal messengers are the same as our bodies produce and can be utilized as natural restorative factors to qualify aging. Hormone restoration and balancing requires precise testing and monitoring. It should only be performed under the medical management of a qualified physician.
Comparing Herbs and Bio-Available Hormones
Bio-available hormones require a prescription by a physician. Often people confuse the difference between bio-available hormones and herbs that stimulate hormones. Herbs, or holistic naturopathic medicine, can be a contributor to the wholeness of a being, but instead of using naturopathic herbs to simulate what these hormones can do, as physicians we can have these hormones compounded by a pharmacy. In today’s world of medicine, many pharmaceutical companies are also now beginning to produce bio-available hormones.
A Personalized Hormone Balancing and Restoration Plan
Hormones work in concert with one another. The vital glands that send these important messengers throughout our brain and the rest of our body do so in a synchronized balanced manner. It’s our job, at the Baucom Institute, to identify if hormone balancing and restoration is appropriate and, if so, format for that patient a hormonal balancing and restoration plan designed to achieve increased vitality and youthful exuberance.
