Over the past decade there has been a tremendous interest in the replacement of waning hormones. This has been manifest in the emergence of Anti Aging Medicine as well as the Emergence of Wellness and Women’s Centers. The overall concept is that as we age or become ill our physiologic level of certain hormones declines. Some practitioners believe that it is because our hormones decline that we age or become ill. They would advocate replacement of certain declining hormones to previously healthy levels helps to restore health. We do practice this in conventional medicine with thyroid hormone replacement and intermittent doses of corticosteroids.
