TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
Testosterone is a hormone produced naturally by the body that helps a man maintain energy, mood, bone strength, sex drive, sexual function, muscle mass, and strength.
There are ranges for testosterone levels that are considered normal, and the brain and the testicles work together to keep testosterone within this range. However, normal levels of testosterone change as you age and your body may need assistance in providing the right amount to sustain you.

HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE THERAPY
As we age, hormone levels naturally decrease, so the endocrine system does not respond as well to the body's needs. The human growth hormone (HGH) is one of the most important hormones affected by aging.
Human growth hormone (HGH) is a protein-based peptide hormone that stimulates growth, cell reproduction and regeneration. During our youth, ample amounts of growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) is produced to sustain health, vitality and otherwise normal aspects of form and function. GHRH declines with age, causing reduced production and secretion of pituitary HGH and thereby increasing the result of adult growth hormone insufficiency (AGHD).
With HGH therapy, you'll see the increased stimulation of growth, cell reproduction and regeneration to combat aging.

ESTROGEN AND PROGESTERONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
Progesterone and estrogen replacement therapies aim to get back what the body is no longer naturally producing. Studies show that estrogen replacement protects women from heart attacks/disease, relieves menopause symptoms, preserves bone density and muscle mass, improves metabolic rate, decreases LDL, increases HDL, maintains skin collagen and decreases risk of developing diabetes.
In women, estrogen replacement primarily targets the uterus, vaginal tissues, breast, muscle, bone, skin and brain. Low estrogen levels can increase LDL levels (the harmful cholesterol) and decreases HDL (the good cholesterol).
Progesterone replacement primarily balances estrogen but it also improves sleep, improves mood, increases metabolic rate, acts as a natural diuretic and enhances action of the thyroid hormones.
It's important for women of every age to have their progesterone and estrogen levels tested! What may feel normal to you may not actually be normal or what you body actually needs.

THYROID HORMONE OPTIMIZATION
Underactive thyroid function is becoming more common and is horribly under-diagnosed. The good news is that once it is diagnosed, it can be very easy to treat, and therapy can alleviate your symptoms.
The thyroid gland is in charge of regulating the body's metabolic rate. If the thyroid gland is sluggish or can’t produce sufficient amounts of thyroid hormones, your metabolism decreases, fatigue sets in and you can gain weight.
A simple blood test asking for specific thyroid tests can help determine if you could benefit from thyroid hormone optimization.
