This year has been tough. If you spent most of it stressed out and stuck at home, you're definitely not alone. Whether you've been busy with work or focused on preparing for the holidays, it's easy to forget to take care of yourself.
If you're suffering from low testosterone levels, it can be hard to identify the problem and even harder to take the first steps toward a healthier life. You might find yourself feeling tired during the day and unable to sleep at night. Maybe you're feeling depressed or finding it difficult to get back into shape. Testosterone levels fall naturally as men age, but you don't have to feel this way forever. By choosing to invest in your own health with HRT, you can alleviate these symptoms and start to live a happier, healthier life.
What Does Taking Care of Yourself Look like?
Give to your loved ones by giving to yourself:
Taking care of yourself takes work, and HRT alone can't give you all the answers. Instead, think of it as a crucial first step that pushes you to be active and present in your daily life. With replenished testosterone levels, you'll finally have the energy to work on yourself. Even better, you'll have more energy to spend time with your friends and family. By giving yourself the gift of a better life, you're also giving to them.
Improve your mental health:
When you choose to focus on your own health, you set yourself up for healthier relationships with others and with yourself. Studies have shown that when your testosterone levels fall, your mental health takes a hit. You might feel depressed more often or experience high-stress levels that keep you from living your life to the fullest. Testosterone shows us that mental health and physical health are intertwined, and by investing in both, you can finally get back to enjoying your life.
Invest in your health without breaking the bank:
Healthcare is expensive. It can be hard to justify spending money on a treatment for yourself, but with testosterone therapy, you don't have to choose between your health and your wallet. Not only does HRT relieve the negative symptoms of low T, but it also reduces your risk of health problems later on. Falling testosterone levels cause harmful visceral fat to build around your internal organs, increasing the likelihood of heart attacks and strokes. HRT improves your cardiovascular health and gets rid of visceral fat in the process, meaning that you'll feel better and avoid the cost of poor health later down the road.
Reduce your stress:
As this year of lockdowns and the COVID-19 pandemic comes to a close, stress levels are at an all-time high. If you find yourself feeling more and more anxious, you're definitely not alone, but external factors aren't the only thing contributing to your stress. Low testosterone levels lead to an increase of cortisol, the stress hormone, leaving you more vulnerable to the physical and mental effects of stress. HRT can't fix the world's problems, but by boosting your overall health, you'll be better prepared to face the stress of everyday life.
Seize the day:
Low testosterone levels make it difficult for you to take the initiative and optimize your health. If you struggle to stay alert throughout the day, chances are you don't have the energy to get your life back on track. After starting HRT, our patients report feeling energetic and clear-headed. Instead of feeling sluggish, they have the motivation to exercise, spend time with family, and do the things they love.
Improve your diet and exercise:
Every new year, people across the world try to commit to getting back into shape and sticking to a healthier lifestyle. Changing your diet and exercise is never easy, but it's even harder to get the results you want if you're suffering from low testosterone. Many men find that no matter how much they exercise or how many vegetables they eat, they can't seem to keep off extra weight. This struggle is because without the hormones that your body needs, you're fighting an uphill battle. HRT tackles the underlying issues that prevent you from reaching your optimal health. With better cardiovascular health, more energy, and improved motivation and focus, you'll finally be able to take on your fitness goals.
