Age Management

At the Cameron Wellness Center, we assist you in clarifying your long term Age Management goals, and together we develop a treatment strategy.  For some this simply means a few dietary/lifestyle changes.  For others this could mean developing an activity/exercise or weight management protocol, treatment of chronic illness, or perhaps optimizing sex hormones (Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, aka BHRT.) ​ We refer to this process as “Rectanglizing The Curve.”  Instead of a long slow downward degradation of health and energy towards demise, you “keep the curve up” and live stronger for longer!​

 

Let us help you manage your aging with grace!

 As we age, a cascade of hormones including testosterone, human growth hormone, DHEA, thyroid hormone and others gradually begin to decline. With declining hormone levels, undesirable symptoms such as decline sex drive, joy-of-life, and overall energy usually start to present in the mid 30′s to 50′s. We also see increasing risk of serious medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis.Before, during, and after menopause hormonal regulation of estrogen, progesterone, DHEA and testosterone will significantly reduce symptoms including hot flashes, vaginal dryness, skin thinning, memory loss, lack of concentration, anxiety, depression, weight gain, irritability, fatigue, insomnia, decreased sex drive, urinary incontinence, muscle weakness, and joint pain. Bio-identical hormone replacement of sex hormones has been shown to protect against heart disease, high cholesterol, osteoporosis, and mental decline. [/av_toggle] [av_toggle title=’Andropause (men)’ tags=”] At the Cameron Wellness Center, men’s health is very important. As men age, they can experience a decline in their vitality which is usually due to a gradual drop in hormone levels, especially testosterone. The term to describe this condition is “Andropause.” Symptoms of Adropause occur slowly over time. Symptoms include changes in attitude, mood, confidence, memory, energy level, sex drive, muscle tone, muscle mass, muscle strength, abdominal fat, and physical agility. For men, at this time of life, questioning insecurities such as values, success, accomplishments, etc. can set in which can be confused with declining hormones. It is important to understand that each hormone works on all organs and tissues receptor sites to aid in proper metabolic activities. For example, testosterone receptors in women and men are in the brain, muscle, skin, bone, joints, vessels, heart, etc. Testosterone is key in building protein, supporting normal sexual behavior, and producing erections.

Symptoms may include:

  • Abdominal weight gain
  • Muscle loss
  • Decrease in libido and erectile function
  • Hair loss
  • Fatigue
  • Memory Loss

While a decline in hormone production may be a natural consequence of aging, it is not mandatory!  Replacing youthful hormone levels can protect against chronic disease, increase vitality and support graceful aging. 

Hormones play a huge part in our lives, and testosterone is a very important one in men and women alike. There are many ways that our testosterone production can be disrupted from lifestyle choices to simply aging. Insufficient testosterone production can have negative effects on libido and can cause fat gain, muscle and hair loss, depression and many other symptoms.

Three Huge Lifestyle Choices That Can Make A Big Difference!

  • Limit alcohol consumption- This is based on individual circumstances. Ideally no alcohol consumption would be best. However, avoiding beer and limiting to 1-3 drinks per week can bring about improvement quickly.
  • Regular sex-  Sex at least once a week can be very beneficial.
  • Consistent Weight training-  This has been shown to improve testosterone production greatly and can be done at different intensities at basically any age. Light to moderate weight training targeting up to 3 different muscle groups 2-4 times a week can be enough to get your body into a good rhythm and you can then start progressing into a higher intensity, more frequent training regime.

​Depending on your current testosterone production your body can adapt and get healthier at an impressive rate. Healthy lifestyle choices are key!
