“I don’t believe in aging. I believe in forever altering one’s aspect to the sun. ” –Virginia Woolf

To Age or Not to AgeTo live is to age; that is the long and short of it. You can try with all your might to avoid the aging process, but as long as you wake up and take a deep breath you are going to grow a bit older. This is something that we are easily reminded of here in Charlotte, a city that is rich in history. Every day as you wake up, drive to work and run errands you are traversing ground that was settled before the American Revolution. A city like Charlotte is something that grows with age. New buildings, new roads, new people—we are what keep our city alive. Our own aging process isn’t all that different.

There are many benefits of aging. As you grow you have the benefit of experience, added wisdom and increased insight. Unfortunately, just as time wears down a well-trodden road, our bodies are in need of rejuvenation with age. Just as you endorse repairs to our city, you need to dedicate time, effort and resources to keeping yourself mentally and physically healthy as you age. Anti-aging therapy in Charlotte isn’t going to turn back the clock, but it can help you feel healthy and function at your prime as you enjoy the years ahead of you.

Why Try Anti-Aging Therapy?

Sure, age is supposed to come with wisdom, but what good is all this wisdom if you are too tired to get out of bed and can barely think straight thanks to constant migraines and hot flashes? There are a lot of physical ailments associated with age, and many happen thanks to hormone imbalance.

Our bodies naturally stop producing hormones over time. This happens to both men and women, and levels of hormones like testosterone, progesterone and estrogen become naturally depleted in the blood. You might think your joint pain, memory loss and fatigue are a natural part of aging, but you are only partially correct. Since hormone levels cause these symptoms, they are not as inevitable as the number of candles on your birthday cake. Anti-aging therapies have made it possible to replenish depleting hormone levels and correct many of the uncomfortable symptoms of age.

Both men and women can start experiencing the uncomfortable symptoms of aging during their mid-forties, at the onset of andropause and menopause. There is no reason to struggle with this discomfort for decades to come. Take steps to alleviate joint pain, strengthen your mind and manage stress and excess weight. Caring for your body in this way is just another aspect of the aging process.
