Dr. Keller and Her “LiveAgelessly” Philosophy
Welcome to LiveAgelessly. At LiveAgelessly we believe in the longevity of life. Our focus is centered on restoring hormones back to optimum levels in order to maximize the overall well-being of a patient’s physical health. By improving how well our patients feel physically, they are also able to see improvement in other aspects of their lives, mentally and emotionally. The aging process is inevitable, and there is nothing that can be done to stop it. In fact, medical studies have shown that we are aging more rapidly than our ancestors. At LiveAgelessly, we understand the inevitability of aging, however our focus on hormone replenishment slows the process of aging, helping you to “live agelessly”.
Numerous hormones decline with age, including: testosterone, dehydroepiandersterone (DHEA), progesterone, estradiol (in women only), melatonin, thyroid hormones and Human Growth Hormone (HGH). The mechanism of decline and cause-and-effect are not clearly known, but it is a fact that hormones play key roles in cell repair, protein synthesis, energy metabolism and immune response. We know that reduced levels of these hormones in the blood are associated with increased signs of aging and therefore may significantly increase our susceptibility to disease processes associated with aging.
Dr. Maria Keller has been practicing medicine since she finished her residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology in 1997. Bio-identical hormones have become the most rewarding part of her medical career. The most exciting aspect of bio-identical hormone replacement occurs when she sees her patients begin to use pharmaceutical drugs less frequently, or even stop using them completely, for symptoms such as insomnia, anxiety, depression, erectile dysfunction and migraines.
Our bodies are not deficient in Prozac, Zoloft, Viagra, Xanax, Imitrex, Topamax and Ambien- they are starting to decline in certain hormones. This hormonal decline can cause the symptoms that these drugs treat. The medications may help those symptoms effectively, but often the side effects of the medications are worse than the symptoms they were meant to alleviate. It is common practice for physicians to then begin to treat the side effects with other pharmaceutical medications. What if your symptoms are due to hormonal decline? Then you could be taking a number of prescription medicines when simply replacing the declining, natural hormones could alleviate the symptoms without all those side effects.
There are many health benefits with the use of bio-identical hormones. The impact they have on a person’s overall well-being when administered correctly is phenomenal. At LiveAgelessly we have seen men and women return to feeling the best they have felt in many years- sometime better than they have ever felt in their lives. The road to a healthier, stronger, and sexier you, is possible using bio-identical hormones. It is not uncommon for us to refer to this as “getting your sexy back.”
Our Testosterone Deficiency Questionnaire is designed make you aware of the signs and symptoms of testosterone deficiency. Symptoms of testosterone deficiency can occur in women as early as the mid 20’s, or in men, in the mid 30’s. If you are experiencing symptoms of testosterone deficiency, call our office today to make an appointment. We order labs prior to your visit so we have the information we need at your first appointment. We value your time and want to make certain that each visit is successful in helping you feel as good, or even better, than you used to feel, and to maintaining that feeling.
