Male & Female Hormones
In module 12, we go from one decade to the next, which seems a sensible way to understand our hormonal system. Note that our program does not include hormone replacement therapy. We have other doctors near you to do that for us.
- For Women: Fix issues with female mood swings, any problem with memory & sex drive.
- For Men: Fix issues with energy, sleep, memory & drive.
- Decrease body fat, wrinkles, droopy skin, and sagging muscles.

All About Male and Female Hormones
We start to lose melatonin so this is when sleep issues start. In Module 7 where we address and repair your sleep issues, we do our best to fix this entirely but if it isn’t totally fixed then we have “culprits” which are hormonally–based.
In our mid 30’s we see a drop in Human Growth Hormone (HGH). This is often not dramatic, but sometimes, we can start to see those changes in our mid to late 30’s:
Progesterone deficiency will occur first as stage 1 of peri-menopause. You will usually also have PMS, some minor memory issues such as name recall, and some concentration issues.
Peri-menopause may start as early as 30. Mood swings and PMS may be other symptoms. However typically this starts around 40.
Drops in testosterone in women are often responsible for a decreased sex drive and tend to occur after we see a drop in progesterone…usually when you are in your 40’s.
Menopause occurs as periods wane and estrogen levels drop. This typically occurs around age 50. Women typically experience hot flushes (medical for flashes), menopausal belly fat (which is easily explained and fixed) and weight gain. This is the time of rapid loss of elastin and collagen in the skin so it is crucial to use methods to stimulate these skin building blocks and use the best anti aging skin care regimen possible if you don’t want to appear to age rapidly.
Testosterone deficiency. There can be many causes if you are in a younger age group than men going through “andropause”, which typically is a drop in testosterone occurring usually in men in their 50’s.
It can be anything from rough sports with knocks to the head or groin, previous use of testosterone for body-building purposes among other causes, but this should nevertheless be evaluated by a Specialist.
Energy is also impacted as well, with an all-day feeling of sluggishness, which includes lack of drive, inability to “get going” on an exercise regimen, and loss of muscle mass. Sometimes there is a decrease in testicle size also. In regards to energy loss from testosterone deficiency or aging it is super easy to regain energy if you let me show you how!
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are experiencing these symptoms, there is the remote possibility of a testicular nodule that may or may not be serious. If you feel one, seek medical help immediately.
AFTER AGE 50:
There are age related losses of everything from thyroid hormone to parathyroid hormone and the only hormone which increases is one we do not WANT to increase-cortisol. Excess cortisol can cause a host of problems from energy to weight to sleep and immune system depression as well as brain health issues.
An important word of advice from Dr. Kim:
For optimal results, I recommend that you let me analyze your issues, medical history, labwork, and so on with a good consultation, after which you can have a heavily discounted annual membership and unlimited follow-up with me.
