Every man gets to a point as he ages where he feels as if time is catching up to him. Maybe you’ve been there. You used to practically sprint up those three flights of steps at work, right? There was a time when you exercised almost every day and felt revitalized by it. You could golf in the morning, wash both cars in the afternoon, and still have the energy to take the wife out to dinner. And then, after dinner…. well, that used to be the best part. But lately, you get the feeling you’re slowing down, the years are adding up, and life has taken its toll. Don’t fret; this lack of energy isn’t necessarily the inevitable, irreversible decline of aging. It’s likely something much simpler, and, thanks to American Longevity Center, easily treatable through hormone replacement therapy.
It’s called andropause and is often referred to under the humorous nickname, “man-o-pause,” a reference to the equivalent condition in females, menopause. But for men who feel like the flair has gone out of their lives, it’s no joke. Andropause is caused by the reduction in the body’s production of testosterone and other hormones. It’s a normal part of aging – scientists say that by a time a man has reached his mid-twenties, his testosterone production will drop an average of 1-2% per year. For some men, it happens at a much quicker rate.
Andropause, so-named because testosterone is an androgen, often leaves its sufferers tired and out of energy. They may lose interest in things they used to enjoy, find themselves unexplainably anxious, angry, or depressed, and notice a diminished sex drive. Fortunately, with treatments like testosterone replacement therapy available at American Longevity Center, it’s not something that anyone has to live with.
Taking Care of Business – Treating Andropause
While menopause has become a part of cultural context and has a wide variety of heavily publicized treatments available, andropause is much less talked about, with the US Census Bureau estimating that only 5-10% of males ever seek treatment for their lowered testosterone levels. It’s unfortunate, because with the help of clinics like American Longevity Center, the condition can be easily managed, leaving the effects virtually eliminated.
The first step is to contact American Longevity Center. There, through comprehensive testing and physical examination, the exact make up of each patient’s hormonal imbalance will be evaluated. Doctors at ALC create a special, all-inclusive, individualized treatment program for each patient that involves hormone replacement therapy, nutrition, a fitness regimen, and dietary or herbal supplements.
Hormone replacement therapy might sound like something out of a James Cameron science fiction film, but it’s actually a natural and safe treatment custom designed by expert doctors for each man’s unique physiology. Hormone replacement therapy makes up for the body’s lowered testosterone production and treats hormonal imbalances, leading to increased energy and alertness, a heightened sex drive and better performance, building of muscle mass and reduction in fat, as well combating the other symptoms associated with andropause. If you think you might have andropause, there’s no reason to delay – after a visit to American Longevity Center, you’ll feel like you did 25 years ago. The good old days start today!
