As you'll learn in our office, true anit-aging is much more than just using hormones: It is about improving your metabolism.
How the metabolism is affected:
If your thyroid and your hormones are low (hormonal imbalance), you may develop metabolic imbalance, and you may not get better unless you replace these hormones, according to the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. We follow the guidelines of this Anti-Aging Academy for building natural hormone replacement for our patients.
I am Dr. Nuchovich, and as a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine I want to make you aware of the effects of some of the hormones in our body.
We have many hormones produced by our many glands, and they all control and command our metabolism. Some of these hormones can be called “major hormones” for their strong, broad and constant effects in our inner system. These are the Estrogen (Estradiol), Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA, Cortisol, Pregnenolone and the Thyroid hormones.
Their actions carry a tremendous effect in our quality and length of life.
Balancing them according to the guidelines of the Anti-Aging Academy provides life-extension, disease-prevention, better health, and an over all: a more enjoyable life.
Here I focus on some of these major hormones because. . . .

Decreased: memory, sleep, reasoning, creativity, orientation, emotions, numeric ability, attention, common sense, response time, learning.
Alzheimer's Disease---This disease is caused by the accumulation of plaques in the brain. Studies show that estrogen replacement protects the brain against these plaques. Progesterone, in addition, is important for brain healing, and together with Estrogen has a beneficial impact in the prevention of the process that causes Alzheimer's.
