As we age, so do the endocrine glands that manufacture our hormones. These include the pituitary, pineal, hypothalamus, ovaries, testes, thyroid and adrenal glands. Not only do our hormone levels decline, but the tissues that respond to these hormones also become less sensitive. This results in decreased cellular repair, lower cell reproduction, a decline in cell turnover, reduced cellular function, and less protein synthesis.
Women in their early 40’s will generally start to develop the signs and symptoms of ovarian failure including muscle loss, sleeping difficulties, mood swings, irritability, low energy and a general feeling of malaise (feeling unwell). The underlying cause for these symptoms typically originates in either the ovaries, the thyroid or both. Additionally these symptoms may occur after any pelvic surgery (including surgery on the fallopian tubes, endometrial ablations, or hysterectomies) from medications (birth control pills, anti-depressants, synthetic hormones) and with birth control devices.
In men, low levels of testosterone, DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone), thyroid or Human Growth Hormone (HGH) can contribute to weight gain, storage of fat, loss of muscle, low energy, poor sleep and sexual dysfunction.
In both men and women, correcting these deficiencies or imbalances reverses the signs and symptoms noted above and plays an essential role in permanent weight loss and restoring ones quality of life.

How It Works
At FreshSkin, we take an in-depth health history and review a comprehensive set of blood hormone levels. Then we design a hormone and supplement program that will help you maintain good health and vitality.
What to Expect
In general, restoring hormones to a more youthful level is associated with little to no side effects. Most patients report a general improvement in their overall sense of well-being, improved energy, sleeping, libido, and memory. These improvements can occur in as little as two weeks after beginning a program and continue to improve over time. It is important to know that each individual is unique and results do vary from person to person.
