Our Hormones and Immune System

2020-04-27T12:39:31-05:00

As we grow older, our immune system does not work as diligently as it did when we were younger. There have been numerous studies on sex hormones and immune system function. Many factors affect how the immune system functions. Females are more likely to become victims of autoimmune diseases like Multiple Sclerosis, Crohn’s Disease, Lupus, and other thyroid disorders.

Annie’s BHRT Journey

Losing or maintaining weight as you age might seem harder than it was when you were in your twenties. That's because it is. Hormones, which are responsible for a wide range of body processes, including metabolism, can affect your ability to slim down and keep weight off long term. As you get older, hormone production can slow down and become erratic, leading to a host of physical and emotional changes.
