As you get older, it’s common for both men and women to start to have seemingly unexplained bouts of irritability and moods that can go from one extreme to the next easier than you’ve experienced before. These are often linked to the conditions of andropause and menopause. With both of these conditions, the underlying effects on your mood have to do with changing levels of hormones in your body. At the Aspen Institute in Denver and Aspen, we have age management programs that can help you feel better again, both physically and mentally.
How Our Age Management Programs Can Help
With fluctuating estrogen and testosterone levels, comes a fluctuating mood. At the Aspen Institute, there are various things we can do to help you with your mood swings and irritability as a result of menopause or andropause, but an effective and popular approach is hormone replacement therapy, or HRT. HRT can help get your hormone levels back to that of a younger you.
How Hormone Replacement Therapy Effects Women
Data has shown that hormone therapy is the most effective treatment for hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and other menopausal symptoms. Because of the profound effect that menopause has on you, it can affect your mental state both because of the loss of hormones’ medical effect and social effect. Your body and mind won’t react to the same stimuli like they used to, and that will affect how you interact with others. Luckily, there’s hormone replacement therapy, which can help provide women with the proper balance of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone to keep living the life they want.
How Hormone Replacement Therapy Effects Men
Unlike women and menopause, the effects of andropause occur in a man slowly over time. Most men start to see their testosterone levels drop in their 30’s, and over time those lowered levels can lead to lower energy, lower libido, insomnia, and even depression. Likely related to these things are the irritability and mood swings you may be seeing along with them. Getting HRT performed to boost your testosterone can help you eliminate those systems and feel more upbeat in general.
Diet and Exercise in Treating Mood Swings and Irritability
While there is always aging to blame for our loss of virility as we get older, there are simple answers to what affects our mood that apply to everyone. Probably the most major one, is that without the right diet and exercise, your mood is bound to suffer. If you feel lethargic, complacent, or tired on a regular basis, then diet and exercise is where you should start. When you work with us, we’ll consult you on exactly what it is you need to improve on, if anything.
