No one talks about how hormonal changes after 40 can feel like puberty all over again

No one talks about how hormonal changes after 40 can feel like puberty all over again

Both men and women find themselves navigating brain fog, loss of muscle mass, a lagging libido, and an overall feeling of “blah” from the decline of critical hormones including estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone (yes, women need testosterone, too!)

Women in menopause or peri-menopause weather a rollercoaster of hot flashes, vaginal dryness, weight gain, brain fog and dry, thinning skin, while men after 40 notice a significant drop in their vitality, including declining muscle mass, decreased sexual function and disrupted sleep. At RegenCen, in Petoskey and Traverse City, we are committed to helping you feel better through menopause.

Even though aging is inevitable, the physical and mental changes that come with it don’t have to feel so disruptive thanks to advancements in hormone treatments. Biologically identical hormones (BHT) have the same chemical structure as the hormones produced by our own bodies, which makes the use of bioidentical hormones significantly safer than the use of traditional oral synthetic hormones.

Bioidentical Hormones

You CAN feel good as you age. BHT can help.

You don’t have to continue sliding downhill. If you’re not feeling like yourself, it’s not just you, or your lack of willpower or discipline.

Hormones influence almost everything. As they decline and change with age, the way you feel in your body changes, too. Don’t keep on living like a shadow of your former self – orgasms CAN be easy again and your skin, hair, and energy DO bounce back. And getting started is easy – just set up a consultation in our Traverse City or Petoskey regenerative health clinic, RegenCen.

Bioidentical hormones alleviate symptoms caused by decreased hormone production. But they don’t just help you feel better – hormones also have protective effects that impact longevity and overall health, including bone density, memory, balance, and heart health.

Testosterone’s surprising benefits for both men and women

Testosterone is essential for optimal functioning in both men AND women. That’s right, women need optimal levels of testosterone, too!

The production of testosterone declines as we age, leaving men and women with less vitality than when they were younger.  With replacement of T to optimal levels, men and women report an increased sense of health and well-being, decreased fat, increased muscle mass, increased exercise tolerance, improved cognition and memory, better sexual function, improved skin tone, and many other rave-worthy benefits.

The biggest benefit for many people (both men and women) seems to be energy – it’s like being a younger, more energized version of yourself.

Estrogen & Progesterone

Estrogen and progesterone bring back desire, energy, and stability for women

After menopause, estrogen levels plummet and can leave women with symptoms of hot flashes, vaginal dryness, urinary incontinence, decreased sexual function, mood disorders, decreased bone mineral density, and increased body weight just to name a few. When we replace estrogen to optimal levels, it can reverse these less-than-pleasant symptoms, as well as protect against heart disease, osteoporosis, stroke, and even reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

Progesterone is used in conjunction with estrogen therapy in women to help reduce certain health risks such as abnormal bleeding after menopause and can also help improve the quality of sleep and enhance memory and cognition.

You don’t have to accept
not feeling like yourself.

Sleep better, feel sharper, and wake up with energy that makes you feel a decade younger when you rebalance your hormones with BHT.

Unlike testosterone shots, oral synthetic hormones, or inconsistent creams, we deliver BHT via pellets under the skin 2-3 times a year for men, and 3-4 times a year for women, so hormone levels and feeling good are stable, predictable, consistent.
