Balanced Hormones & Optimal Body Chemistry Are Critical to Aging Well

By Katherine Sempecos, Owner of PRISM Med Spa


he way people feel and perform is a combination of how close they are to their optimal body chemistry and their genetically driven responses to exercise, rest, nutrition, prescribed medications, vitamins, supplements, and hormones, as well as many other factors. The variables in this complex ecosystem are all highly interdependent. Even a small change in one can have a substantial ripple effect to many others. Due to age, stress or trauma, a person’s body chemistry falls out of balance. Maintaining your optimal body chemistry on all levels can deliver better aesthetics, better muscle to fat ratios, better levels of energy, stamina, sharper mental acuity, better memory and in turn a longer life.

WOW….. REALLY? This literally takes all the guess work out of achieving perfect health, inside and out! But why is having balanced hormones so important anyway? According to one of New York’s leading authorities Dr. Maria Levada, Gynecologist and F.A.C.O.G., who is on IGS’s Medical Advisory Board for Natural Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (NBIHRT), “hormones are natural substances made by our organs and function as ‘messengers’ between cells. The balance of hormones directly affects how our bodies function. Hormone imbalance leads to fatigue, sleep disturbances, sexual dysfunction, depression, impaired immune function, chronic illnesses, debility and premature aging. A good hormone balance translates into energy, weight control, sexual vigor, youthful appearance, and an overall sense of well-being.”
