The regular cycling of these hormones begin to change as early as the mid-thirties and symptoms likely begin in the mid-forties as women begin the process known as peri-menopause. It is the time when levels of key hormones such as estrogen, progesterone and testosterone begin to fluctuate and are accentuated by declines in other equally important hormones, namely HGH, DHEA/Pregnenolone and even thyroid gland function. Peri-menopause continues until periods stop and the woman becomes menopausal.
Surgical menopause involves a woman suddenly entering menopause by surgical removal of the ovaries. It can happen at almost any age and without proper hormone replacement, symptoms of hormone deficiency will be quite severe unless they are reversed using HGH as part of a complete hormone replacement therapy.
Though treated as a disease by doctors, women know it as a natural and inevitable transition from one stage of life to another. Puberty marks the beginning of reproductive life -- menopause marks the end.
Symptoms of Menopause
During peri-menopause (known as "the change"), women will still have a menstrual cycle, although the cycle may become erratic and woman may skip periods as hormone levels fluctuate. This is only one symptom of menopause. Other symptoms may include:
Loss of bone density can be reversed with hormone replacement therapy and HGH in tandem. It has been demonstrated to lessen the risk of heart disease as well by strengthening the heart muscles.
Our bones consist of cells that grow new bone tissue and cells that dissolve (re-absorb) old bone. This occurs continually throughout our lives. Estrogen, progesterone and testosterone help our bodies absorb calcium from the intestinal tract. Estrogen slows the action of cells that cause bone breakdown. Progesterone, HGH, and testosterone stimulate cells that build bone. Growth hormone is another hormone that begins to decline as early as the mid-twenties. When raised to more youthful levels, growth hormone(HGH) shows great promise in rebuilding lost bone. During peri-menopause, as hormones decline, women can lose 1 to 6 percent of their bone mass each year and is most pronounced in areas of faster bone growth such as the spine.
The Other Hormones...
Testosterone is essential to prevent osteoporosis, boost mental sharpness, muscle retention, metabolism, energy and sex drive.
DHEA is necessary to support the immune system and to counter destructive cortisol produced by stress.
Growth Hormone(HGH) ,though somewhat expensive, is the "youth elixir". Working in synergy with the other hormones, it has the potential to return the body to what it was in its 30's. It is perhaps the most effective weight control a woman can utilize.
Thyroid Hormone is critical to overall hormone function. As people age this HGH hormone tends to decline, producing a condition known as hypothyroidism.
