Planning Ahead in Your 50's!
Your 50’s can be like a bumpy road. Not since your teens or early 20’s has your body gone through such dramatic hormonal changes. Aging affects everyone differently, and the twists and turns your body throws at you can make it difficult to plan ahead.
For most women, their 50’s mean menopause. While it can happen earlier or later, chances are you’ll experience the effects of menopause between 48-55 years. Decreased estrogen production is responsible for many of the outward signs of menopause like hot flashes, sleeplessness, thinning of skin and changes in breast shape. But Estrogen also affects systems you don’t see, like the heart, urinary system, brain, skin, blood vessels, breasts, uterus and bone mass. During menopause, your body also decreases the production of testosterone, which can lead to lack of concentration and “brain fog,” and lowered libido or sex drive.
Men likewise experience hormonal changes in their 50’s. Not usually noticeable at first, testosterone production gradually decreases about 1% - 3% each year starting at age 30. Testosterone is most commonly associated with a man’s sex drive – and it does affect the libido and ability to get and maintain an erection – but decreased production can also cause fatigue, loss of muscle mass, increased body fat and mood swings including irritability and depression.
You may be in for a bumpy ride, but does that mean there’s nothing you can do about it? NOT. AT. ALL.
Lifestyle changes such as increased exercise, quitting smoking, stress reduction, and good nutrition are key ways to moderate these changes and lessen the effects of aging. Did you know that hormone optimization can support your lifestyle changes by giving you more energy, making exercise more effective, brightening your mood and reigniting your sex drive? Additionally, proper hormone levels can stave off the onset of age-related diseases like Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and osteoporosis.
As you look forward to living well, make changes now that will smooth the road for you in years to come.
