“Hormones De-Bunked” turned out a great group of women! It was a pleasure to have Jennifer Boyd, PA-C, founder of Boyd Wellness, join us for an interesting discussion about the pros and cons of Bioidentical vs. Conventional Hormones. We all came away well-educated and able to make some informed decisions about our future.
I was excited to introduce the scientific side of aging, on both the cellular and physical levels, as explanation to the many changes we experience over time. It was fun to use a decade by decade photo series of myself as illustration of the aging process!
Although the wisdom that comes with age is nice… the wrinkles, ailing joints and general frailty are challenging. Luckily, the key to anti-aging is within your reach. When it comes to relaying messages, inducing reactions and protecting tissue – it’s all about your hormones. From regulating metabolism and growth to controlling immune function and reproduction, hormones are major players in all that you do and all that you are – physically at least. The good news however, is that although our hormones diminish over time, we can maximize their levels by making adjustments in our lifestyle and exercise. Gradual consistent changes like this will go a long way to creating a lifetime of GREAT quality living!
