How Bio-identical Hormones affects the aging process

The role of bio-identical hormones in the aging process

 Chronic diseases have increased tremendously over the years. Such conditions have impacted the life of our aging population in such a way that brings both financial, emotional and morale chaos in the medical community because such chronic conditions are treated with symptomatology benefiting medications and non-helps patients battle the underlying root cause of their condition. Failure to see aging as a disease is part of the problem. Diseases such as Diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, stroke, Alzheimer's, immune system disorders, back pain or sciatica are a few amongst the chronic conditions that are plaguing our aging population with an ability to be amenable using quantum physics principles and bio-identical hormones. There have been countless worthless symptom-modifying-only products developed by pharmaceutical companies over the years to better manage our chronic conditions. Unfortunately, such products are virtually worthless for an anti-aging practitioner especially as these products helps with calming symptoms only while at the same time helping in the orchestration and propagation of a bigger problem including cancer. The mitochondria are often regarded as a “powerhouse” for the production of energy in the human body. When it loses its ability to function properly, disastrous consequences ensure such as acute or chronic fatigue and other related chronic diseases often associated with the aging process (Nicolson, 2014). The scientific knowledge at our disposal today favors a conclusion that dietary supplement supplementation plays a powerful and unequivocally daunting role in the eradication of chronic conditions, chronic fatigue and other aging related diseases and conditions to restore health and vitality. 

There has been tremendous debate in the medical circles concerning how the skin ages, and the contribution made by genetics, environmental and hormonal factors in this process. Estrogens particularly Estradiol and Estriol (but not estrone) have decisively been found to play key roles in the pathogenesis of various chronic medical conditions such as skin aging and wound healing (Emmerson & Hardman, 2012), osteoarthritis and inflammation (Martin-Millan & Castaneda, 2013), (Jung et al., 2018) and obesity (Lizcano & Guzman, 2014). The role of the good estrogens then is vital for skin aging from a scientific, dermatological, pathologic point of view. Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) on the other hand together with its sulfated form constitutes the most predominant steroid hormone in circulation with low levels often attributed to age-related unforeseeable changes in humans including rapid aging, as evidenced in animal studies such as allergic, inflammatory and immune disorders (Dillon, 2005), cognitive impairment in the elderly (Maggio et al., 2015); the protective role on the cardiovascular system (Mannic, Viguie, & Rossier, 2015), (Lemos et al., 2019); improvement in fatty acid profile during and after menopause (Mannic et al., 2015). DHEA has now become a “super hormone” and an anti-aging magic bullet by extrapolating animal study evidence to humans.
