Have you recently looked in the mirror and said to yourself, “Wow, I look OLD!!”?

Maybe you feel like you're 23, but you look 65. Yikes. What happened? Or maybe you even feel 65 on top of it all – aches and pains, obesity, low muscle mass, low libido...Yuck, make it stop.

The worst is seeing some of your peers who seem to look and feel way better than you do. This is either luck, genetics or they could have just been proactive in life and prepared themselves to age gracefully.

By accepting the fact that you are going to age and look drastically different than when you were 18 years old, you mentally prepare as well as ensure you look and feel your best as the years go by – and enjoy a great quality of life while you’re at it!

You just need to take the time to indulge in self-care every day, even if it’s just something small because we all know life is busy, busy, busy. Do take some time to slow down and take care of your body and mind, however. You will thank me later.

Stay Active to Combat Degeneration

Use it or lose it. If you do not stay active throughout life, you may be hit with a surprise later on: sarcopenia.

Sarcopenia is the scientific word for muscle loss to the point where an older person has issues walking or standing and is a fall risk. In America especially, we spend too much time being sedentary: desk jobs, watching TV, commuting for hours on end, etc. After decades of this behavior, the symptoms start to show up.

With screen-time dramatically increasing in younger age groups, the trend toward sedentary lifestyles is starting earlier and earlier.

Children are not being taught to maintain active lifestyles and the cycle perpetuates. It’s time to get out there and have fun! Try something new like skiing, roller skating, hiking, or biking. The possibilities are nearly endless.

Fuel the Body With a Nutrient-Dense Diet

A nutrient-dense diet is necessary, and especially for older folks because the body’s ability to absorb and distribute nutrients decreases as we age and nutrient deficiencies result.

Overall digestive health tends to decline as we get older due to deterioration of the cells, long-term poor dietary habits, and tissue damage from chronic inflammation. Natural or unnatural hormone fluctuations can occur, causing imbalances, and this can have an effect on one’s appetite and energy level, as well.

The two main issues to be concerned with regarding nutrient malabsorption is minimal healthy fat intake and consistent dehydration.

Getting enough healthy fat is critical for absorbing many essential vitamins and minerals as they are fat-soluble. Fats are also critical for cellular repair and nerve health.

We also need adequate hydration in order to absorb the water-soluble vitamins. In addition, our bodies are mainly composed of water and we need enough water for our cells to grow, replenish and repair on a daily basis.

It is estimated that over 50 percent of the American population is chronically dehydrated! Even mild dehydration can cause issues such as cramping, constipation, fatigue, and even nausea. Not fun!

Hormone Imbalances Disrupt Bodily Functions

In men, the decline of testosterone levels is extremely disruptive for the man’s life and health. Low testosterone can also affect women too.

In men, this drastic depletion of testosterone is nicknamed “male menopause” and the symptoms can be similar to what women experience during menopause. These symptoms include mood changes, hot flashes, breast tenderness, and low libido/erectile dysfunction.

It’s essential for both men and women to prepare for these big changes as early as possible and to know what’s ahead.

Women cannot avoid menopause, but they can lessen the symptoms, and menopause is essentially a decade-long imbalance of hormones that can greatly lower a woman’s quality of life until the hormones normalize again, which they might never do. Men need to prepare for “male menopause” as well.

In order to prepare, it’s essential to follow the advice above. Maintain an active lifestyle and get outdoors. Fuel your body with nutrient-dense food, including healthy fats and lots of water.

Avoid simple sugars because these can have an effect on insulin, testosterone, and estrogen levels when too many are ingested.

Testosterone Injections are a Simple Way to Get Back on Track

If you are someone who has not been proactive in preparing for aging and looks in the mirror remorsefully, consider getting back on track by undergoing a testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) program.

It will not fix things overnight, but it is a faster and safe way to undo some years of poor lifestyle choices and get your hormone levels back to where they need to be.

Testosterone injections will get rid of any “male menopause” symptoms and can fix issues such as vaginal dryness and low libido in women as well. Things to look forward to are increased muscle mass, stronger bones, increased libido, and weight loss, to name a few.

It’s so simple to get started! Just fill out our contact form or give us a call. We are happy to discuss your options for TRT and whether it is right for you.
