Healthy Aging Medical Centers in New Jersey believe in treating the whole woman and not just treating symptoms. The clinic’s Healthy Aging Female Programs embody a concierge medical approach and a comprehensive consultation. During the initial consultation, the physician will review a woman’s entire medical history, blood work, previous labs, and dietary habits. By the end of the consultation, the doctor will have determined which tests a woman may need, nutritional deficiencies, and if she is a candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. The all inclusive programs include therapies that are non-invasive and that help women heal ailments and imbalances in a safe and effective way. Some of the therapies that are utilized include IV vitamin treatments, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, allergy testing, advanced genetic testing for cancer and heart disease, and testing for vitamin and mineral deficiencies. The clinicians utilize the latest anti-aging protocols to help women recover from the effects of aging and hormone decline. The staff at Healthy Aging Medical Centers in New Jersey can customize all inclusive programs for women to help them regain health and balance.
In women, the two primary sex hormones progesterone and estrogen maintain several different important functions in the female body in regards to sex, reproduction, and appearance. However, women also need a healthy amount of testosterone in order to maintain healthy amounts of energy, sex drive, and metabolic functions. In women, testosterone is made in the adrenal glands of the body, while estrogen and progesterone are made in the ovaries, and during perimenopause or menopause, the adrenal gland production may fall. For women that lead high stress lives, the adrenal glands may opt to use building blocks needed to make testosterone and convert them into cortisol to manage stress. In women that have estrogen and progesterone deficiencies, the adrenals may choose to make more estrogen and progesterone to compensate for the ovaries lack of hormonal production. This can lead to a testosterone deficiency, which can inhibit the many necessary functions of testosterone in the female body.
Some of the other functions of testosterone include:
- Strengthens Bones
- Promotes Red Blood Cell Production
- Increased Libido
- Improves Muscle Tone
- Speeds Up Metabolism
- Burns Body Fat
- Increases Stamina & Endurance
- Increased Sense Of Wellbeing
- Improves Moods
- Increases Tolerance To Stress
Healthy Aging Medical Centers in New Jersey can tailor a program for women that may include bioidentical testosterone supplementation. Women can receive an identical version of testosterone to what is produced in their bodies, and only women that are truly deficient in this important hormone will be given a small dosage to balance their hormone levels. Women that supplement their testosterone deficiencies can obtain a wide number of benefits. Some of the benefits of bio-identical testosterone supplementation may include:
Testosterone play a role in several metabolic functions, and it can help the cells of the body to pump out more energy. Women with low testosterone levels often suffer from ongoing fatigue and lack a sense of wellbeing. Supplementing deficient testosterone levels with bioidentical testosterone can help women to regain their energy and vitality.
Increased Sex Drive
Lower levels of testosterone can cause women to have reduced libido, energy, and desire for sex.
Testosterone is not only responsible for a healthy libido in women but it helps to increase desire and promote the chemical changes that occur in the body with desire. Women with healthy levels of testosterone often have a healthy sex drive and can easily climax. For women that are suffering from low libido, supplementing bioidentical testosterone can help them to recover their sex drive and enjoyment of sex.
One of the risk factors for women with reduced hormone levels is osteoporosis, which is a condition that consists of brittle and porous bones. Testosterone helps the bones to absorb minerals and nutrients that keep them strong, and it can fuel the reproduction of bone cells that are responsible for repairing and building bones. Low levels of testosterone can raise the risk of developing osteoporosis in women. However, women that replenish their testosterone levels can keep their bones strong and potentially prevent the development of osteoporosis.
Improved Stamina & Endurance
Low levels of testosterone can lead to reduced stamina and endurance, and this is because testosterone fuels the production of red blood cells, which carry oxygen throughout the body. Reduced testosterone means fewer red blood cells, which ultimately leads to lower levels of blood oxygen. Less oxygen in the blood will inevitably lead to lower levels of both stamina and endurance. Women that replenish deficient testosterone levels can increase both their stamina and endurance.
Reduced Body Fat
Women that have low levels of testosterone may also have a sluggish metabolism, which can lead to more body fat and less muscle tissue. Because testosterone fuels energy, women may also notice that they have less energy to exercise and workout, which can also increase body fat. Restoring testosterone to healthy levels with bioidentical hormones can help women to increase their energy and metabolism and reduce body fat.
