What do you do to keep your body in optimum shape?
Do you work out? Try to eat well? Get an occasional treatment to keep your skin glowing, or your body looking the best it can?
Chances are that you try your hardest to stay healthy and fit….
….Except in one area, which is often overlooked.
In popular culture, they’re a bit of a joke.
“Stop being so hormonal…”
“My hormones have gone haywire….”
Hormones are trotted out as an excuse every time someone is a little moody. They’ve come to be seen as something negative.
But the way we talk about hormones hides an unfortunate truth.
As we grow older, large parts of the population – both women and men – suffer from hormone imbalances which can wreak havoc with our sleep patterns, libido, weight, memory, skin, strength, energy and yes, moods as well.
The tricky part is that a hormone imbalance tends to develop slowly, without you even realising. You may have the beginnings of an imbalance without seeing symptoms yet.
And doctors all too often fail to locate hormones as the cause.
Yet even one of those symptoms can make day-to-day life very difficult, leaving you feeling exhausted, depressed, and uncomfortable in your own body. They can damage your relationships and affect your confidence.
Worst of all, when you don’t know what’s wrong with you, it can be incredibly isolating and frustrating.
So what do you do?
First of all, it’s vital that you keep track of how balanced your hormones are – even if you are not showing any symptoms. Just as in any other area, pre-emption here is key to maintaining your good health over the long-term. There are tests nowadays that can give us a complete and very accurate map of your hormones.
Secondly, when you do discover that your hormones are out of whack, treat them.
And here I’d really value hearing your opinion…
You see, we’re thinking of offering our patients the option of getting bio-identical hormones at Parfaire.
Bio-identical hormones are identical to the hormones your body makes, but are extracted from plants, usually yams and soya, in a laboratory. They are taken either as a cream or as a lozenge placed under the tongue; a few can be taken by mouth.
For some, this will prevent some of the most difficult physical, mental and emotional symptoms of aging from emerging. For others, it will restore a quality of life they may not have experienced for several years…
>> Giving you back your energy so that you can keep up with your children and younger colleagues
>> Improving your memory, so that you can concentrate better
>> Boosting your libido so that you can get your sex life back
>> Plumping out your skin so that you look younger
>> And minimizing the effects of the menopause, including hot flushes, anxiety and depression.
You would be able to get these hormones at Parfaire under strict medical supervision – mine!
For me, this is part of our commitment to treating your overall wellness. Your skin and body shape are one component of this – but it’s not the only way we can help you look and feel your best.
So what do you think? If this were a treatment we offered here at Parfaire, would you possibly be interested?
Is this something you’ve ever considered before – or would consider in future?
I’d really value your input before I make my final decision on whether or not to offer this. So please hit ‘reply’ and let me know your thoughts – even something as short as “Yes” or “no” would be helpful.
And if I get enough replies, I’ll share (anonymously, of course) the trends I’m seeing.
