Collaborative Post | Do you remember how it feels when you experience a spectrum of emotions like happiness, anger, and sadness? All of them have a physical reaction in our body, making us feel sensations that drive our actions. Our anatomy is largely based on changing hormones, which is an automatic process that we generally are unaware of. However, hormones do much more than just help us feel emotions. The right mix of hormones can help us feel motivated and driven to be productive, while excessive stress hormones can drive you to anxiety. Similarly, a healthy level of testosterone can help men with fertility, while a low testosterone level in the body can reduce their libido.
Hormonal changes are based on several factors but can even out due to our body’s natural ability to regulate itself with the right lifestyle choices. However, hormonal levels may deplete with age, leading to several deficiencies and illnesses. This is also one of the reasons why the zest for life plateaus for the age- but there’s no need to despair! There are several ways one can keep hormonal levels healthy. If you wish to know how this blog will help you get to the healthiest version of yourself. Let’s get started right away!
1) Get a medical assessment: We know getting these yearly medical tests can be intimidating and daunting because you never know what the doctors may find. However, that’s exactly the purpose of these assessments to diagnose any building illnesses before it gains momentum. Similarly, finding a depletion in hormonal levels in the early stages can help healthcare practitioners come up with a course of action to promote the production of hormones through various treatments. If you notice signs of hormonal dysregulation in your body, make sure to get it checked out.
2) Take on supplements: Several supplements help you keep up hormonal regulation for better mental and physical health. One example would be vitamin B12, which is a water-soluble nutrient and needs constant replenishing as you age. However, the primary source of B12 is found in abundance in meat, which may not be someone’s dietary preference or easily digestible while aging. Instead, taking daily doses of B12 can help your mind stay sharp, weight regulated, and body free from anxiety or stress. Similarly, there are other supplements to help you function well that your physician can prescribe.
3) Try hormone replacement therapy: One of the phases many aging men experience is lowered testosterone levels. In men, low testosterone means lowered vitality, which also affects their overall metabolism, physical appearance, and other attributes. Low testosterone levels can reduce your overall weight retention and strength, libido, and motivation. Thankfully, modern medicine has a solution for those going through this experience with hormone replacement therapy. For those with diminished testosterone levels, TRT is an effective solution to help with all of the concerns in a few sittings. These are effectively administered and show a difference in some time, which can be a life-changing experience. Once you have taken the recommended doses, most of the challenges to your health improve in a span of 3-4 weeks.
4) Shift your lifestyle choices: The way you lived in your youth may dictate how your mind and body feel now. If you’re constantly riddled with stress and fatigue now, it may have been that you overworked yourself in your younger days. The beauty of the human body is how incredibly flexible it is. While you may not be able to completely negate the effects of a poor lifestyle from the old days, you can now adopt a better schedule to help you feel better by keeping your hormonal levels regulated. Practice meditation, breathing exercises, and parasympathetic neuroplasticity activities.
5) Get ample rest: One thing your body cannot stand post 25 years of age is lack of rest. Your health is connected to the quality of sleep you get, which is why several mental health illnesses get exacerbated when you compromise on snooze time. Getting 6-8 hours of sleep each night can help your brain and body perform all the restoration functions to keep you healthy. This also extends to processing hormones that can help with memory retention, beating Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Wrapping Up: In all these methods, one factor remains common. You need to consciously track the changes your body goes through, which can help pinpoint certain hormonal irregularities to treat appropriately. All in all, aging is a golden process that can be accomplished with the best of health if you honor your physical changes with the correct measures!
