While aging is a privilege and full of wonderful events, it does entail emotional shifts.
As we age, we stop producing certain hormones, the result of which can be experiencing brain fog, mood changes, and a decrease in libido.
At Sleep and Wellness Associates in Hamilton, New Jersey, we offer innovative bioidentical hormone replacements to restore vitality and sexual health.
Stability and an overall improvement in your body and mind is a click or a call away — call or click on the button to schedule a hormone replacement therapy consultation.

What are Hormones? 

Hormones are chemical messengers that regulate different functions in the body. The different functions that hormones regulate include the metabolism, sleep cycles, heart rate, growth, reproduction, and sexual activity.

Where do hormones come from? They are produced in the brain, more specifically, in the hypothalamus. As we age, some glands reduce in size and thus reduce the amount of hormones they produce. 

Since hormones are very powerful, even a slight change in the body’s hormone count can make a huge impact, especially when referring to reproductive hormones: estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone. These hormones are produced in the ovaries and the testes, therefore both men and women are affected by this, albeit in different ways.



Estrogens are a group of hormones that play a crucial role in women’s growth and reproductive development. In addition to regulating the menstrual cycle, estrogen affects the reproductive tract, the urinary tract, the heart and blood vessels, bones, breasts, skin, hair, mucous membranes, pelvic muscles, and the brain.



Progesterone is the most important progestogen in the body. It is produced in the ovaries and it regulates the reproductive function, bone production, cardiovascular function, and overall mood.



Testosterone, on the other hand, is produced in the testes and fosters muscle and bone mass and endurance. Additionally, it promotes the growth of body hair. It is also associated with sex drive, and healthy sleep patterns.

How Does Hormone Decline Impact the Body?

There are different terms that describe the loss of hormone production and their secretory patterns as we age. These include menopause, andropause, adrenopause, and somatopause.

Menopause happens when the body stops producing estrogen and progesterone following the cessation of ovarian function. With it, it brings about adverse health effects like:

  • Hair growth.
  • Hot flashes.
  • Increased heart rate.
  • Loss of bone density.
  • Mental fog.
  • Mood changes.
  • Night sweats.
  • Relaxation of the pelvic muscles.
  • Vaginal atrophy.

Also, there is a gradual decline in testosterone (T), which is called “andropause.” Some of its effects include:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Increased body fat
  • Decreased energy and sexual desire
  • Loss of body hair
  • Sleep disturbances

To combat these negative impacts on health, researchers have developed bioidentical hormones to replace those that are lost with age.

What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Bioidentical hormones are hormones that are developed in a laboratory from natural sources. They are then administered in replacement of the ones the body loses. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) thus increases hormone levels to alleviate symptoms that arise from aging. Because they are chemically identical to the ones that the body produces, it assimilates them as its own.

Among BHRT’s benefits are:

  • A decrease in body fat
  • An improvements in erectile dysfunction
  • Better memory
  • Higher energy
  • Alleviating menopause symptoms like vaginal dryness
