Fighting the Effects of Aging from the Inside
Reversing the visible effects of aging is big business, with spas, laser clinics and cosmeceutical manufacturers offering a nearly endless selection of products and services designed to turn back the hands of time. But according to Phoenix anti-aging specialist Barry Berger, MD, aging causes changes to the body that are more than just skin deep. At Dr. Berger’s Phoenix anti-aging, hormone therapy and weight loss center, patients benefit from personalized diet, hormone and lifestyle programs designed to restore and maintain patients’ youthful strength and vitality.
The Role of Hormones in Aging
As we age, our hormone balances begin to change and our levels of certain essential hormones begin to decline. In recent years, scientists have begun to discover that these hormones play a major role in the physical symptoms of aging, and that by replacing them, they can help patients to look, feel and perform more as they did when they were younger.
Using professional athletes as an example, Dr. Berger explains that there’s a reason for the widespread use of human growth hormone to improve performance. “They wouldn’t use it if there were no results,” he says. “Professional athletes are experiencing the benefits of these hormone therapies, and the performance improvements are obvious.”
Other hormones – lost as we age – that can have powerful effects on the body include melatonin, DHEA and testosterone (in both men and women). The anti-aging movement and the scientists behind it take the position that one shouldn’t have to simply accept the negative effects of hormone loss as he or she ages. Rather, by restoring these critical hormones to their normal levels, doctors can help their patients to more effectively fight the aging process, allowing them to feel better, look better and perform better despite the inevitable passage of time.
