Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

In the scientific community anti-aging research refers exclusively to slowing, preventing, or reversing the aging process. In the medical and reputable business community, anti-aging medicine means the early detection, prevention, and treatment of age-related diseases. Here at Pace Yourself to Health, we specialize in both the scientific community expression as well as the medical expression of what Anti-Aging Medicine is. In many cases, anti-aging means to optimize the body to function in a more youthful state. Such therapies could include optimizing hormones and other physiological processes in the body to reach optimal health. Below are some of the therapies we offer here at Pace Yourself to Health.

Hormone Balancing

Hormones play a vast role in regulating many systems of our bodies. With aging, various hormonal shifts occur and cause physical, mental and emotional changes. Additionally, many of these hormones begin to decrease, causing symptoms of menopause and andropause. At Pace Yourself to Health, we offer a therapy called Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement to help bring back balance and vitality into your life. Depending on what your health goals are and what lab results show, our providers can customize hormone therapies that are unique to your needs. Such hormones may include utilizing DHEA, Pregnenolone, Estradiol, Estriol, Progesterone, Testosterone, Sermorelin and Growth Hormone in compounded forms. Below are some advantages of bio-identical hormone replacement in both women and men.

Athletic Enhancement

Reaching our full potential can be hard and confusing with the wide array of information out there. The term “Athletic Enhancement” refers to optimizing one’s athletic potential to overcome plateaus and perform to our full potential. This requires a balance in the body. Balance is attained through hormone optimization, vitamin and mineral utilization, proper diet and training. At Pace Yourself to Health, we look at this area and provide a full package service to help you achieve the best state you can reach.

Hormone Balancing (Athletic Focus)

Hormone regulation is complex in the body and requires proper stress responses to maximize potential. For males, this requires optimizing testosterone levels while minimizing the aromatization of this hormone into unwanted estrogens. Another protein in the body called SHBG (Sex Hormone Binding Globulin) can sometimes hold on to needed testosterone and prevent optimal release. Having the right approach and knowledge at hand can help decrease the SHBG activity as well as minimize aromatase activity thereby ensuring optimal testosterone levels are obtained in the body.

HPA Axis Balancing

Another area that requires focus is on Adrenal Gland function and how our body responds to elevated stressors. When one is engaged in high-intensity activity, this produces an elevated stress response in the body. Each of us handles such stressors differently. Some of us gear towards a maladaptive state while when in “balance” and in contrast, we begin to adapt more proficiently. The key takeaway here is preventing maladaptive stress responses when active. There are ways to reach positive stress responses with adequate supplementation and nutrition.

Sermorelin, GHRP-2, GHRP-6 Therapy

Sermorelin and Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides 2,6 help with recovery from the intense activity and promote lean muscle growth and tissue recovery. Prescription growth hormone is often utilized and sometimes if used properly can help individuals immensely. However, there are sometimes unwanted side-effects from use. Sermorelin, on the other hand, helps to increase your “natural” endogenous growth hormone beyond baseline levels while minimizing potential side effects. Sermorelin may be helpful with weight loss, increasing strength, improving muscle tone and adding on lean muscle mass.

Nutrition

When engaged in an exercise program, nutrition and diet are key to obtain maximum results. Based on your activity, metabolic rate, and other factors, diets should not be “shoe-boxed” but rather be personalized. Here at Pace Yourself to Health we can offer customized dietary approaches based on your individual needs.

Nutrigenomics

One of the breakthrough concepts from the Human Genome Project is that “genes in and of themselves do not create disease. Only when they are plunged into a harmful environment unique to the individual do they create the outcome of the disease.”

An advancing area of study called Nutrigenomics looks at how different foods may interact with specific genes to modify the risk of common chronic diseases such as Type II diabetes, obesity, heart disease, stroke and certain cancers.

Nutrigenomics also seeks to identify the molecules in the diet that affect health by altering the expression of genes. For example, one study showed that participants who consumed a diet of whole rye (low-insulin-response) experienced changes in their gene expression that reduced their risk of developing diabetes. Participants who consumed an oat-wheat-potato (high insulin response) diet experienced the opposite-a change in their gene expression that increased their risk.

An editorial published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (2007) noted in response to this study-we is spending millions to find drugs that can impact our production of hormones such as insulin when there might already be a simple dietary strategy. The editorial concludes, “The results of the present study emphasize the age-old wisdom to use food as medicine.

We cannot change our genes, but we can change the environment which impacts how our genes manifest. One important component of this environment is food.
