Stress Reduction

Stress Reduction is an important component to any effective Anti-Aging Medicine and Hormone Replacement program.

Chronic stress can lead to illness and debility through the elevation of cortisol, the stress hormone. Stress reactions while helpful in the short term such as the 'fight or flight' reaction that can keep us safe in an emergency situation can be destructive if they go unchecked under chronic stress conditions.

Prolonged stress can cause reduced immunity, loss of lean body mass, increase in abdominal fat mass, thinning of the skin and other signs of tissue breakdown. This catabolic effect is opposed to the anabolic effect we are trying to achieve with our antiaging program.

You will recieve instruction on stress reduction as part of your antiaging program.
