As men age, their bodies produce less testosterone and the necessary hormones required for physical performance and sexual stimulation. These declining hormone levels can lead to fatigue, memory loss, depression, anxiety, erectile dysfunction, and loss of sex drive. Have you been told that your testosterone level is normal because it's above 300? Are you tired of feeling suboptimal testosterone symptoms?
Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is the most effective delivery method for TRT, and many different types of testosterone compounds can be used to treat low T and hypogonadism. One example is called Testosterone Cypionate which can help increase libido, decrease erectile dysfunction, enhance mental clarity, improve energy levels and increase motivation.

We were born with the human growth hormone ( HGH) that would help us grow, build muscle, and burn fat. This hormone starts to decrease at the age of 30 which makes our bodies susceptible to complications such as less mental clarity, dry skin, reduced muscle mass, depression, anxiety, and overall affect your quality of life.
Overall, peptides stimulate your pituitary gland to naturally produce more human growth hormone to help boost your own HGH levels. Benefits include increased muscle mass, joint/muscle pain relief, mental clarity, faster recovery after exercise, reduced abdominal fat, and improved sexual function.

Erectile dysfunction can be a sign of a physical or psychological condition. It can cause stress, relationship strain, and low self-confidence. The main symptom is a man's inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse.
Patients suffering from erectile dysfunction should first be evaluated for any underlying physical and psychological conditions which will include a comprehensive lab analysis to identify any underlying factors such as low testosterone or suboptimal testosterone.
Medications available if appropriate include PDE ( phosphodiesterase inhibitor) such as Viagra or Cialis.

Functional medicine focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. Each symptom or differential diagnosis may be one of many contributing to an individual's illness.
The functional medicine model of care offers a patient-centered approach to chronic disease management. It seeks to answer the question, "Why are you ill?" so you can receive personalized, effective care for your needs.
You will have a consultation with a nurse practitioner who will spend time listening to you and gathering your medical history. This information is used to identify the root cause(s) of the illness, including triggers such as poor nutrition, stress, toxins, allergens, genetics and your microbiome (the bacteria living in and on your body).
Once those triggers are identiifed, a customized healthy treatment plan will be developed with education provided. Your plan will address many aspects of your life from physical needs, nutrition, exercise, sleep, to mental and emotional stressors related to social, work and community life.

Hypothyroidism is a form of thyroid disease that occurs when the thyroid gland is unable to make enough thyroid hormone to maintain the body's natural processes. This can be caused by certain medications (Lithium) or medical conditions such as thyroid cancer, iodine deficiency, thyroid inflammation( known as thyroiditis), and radiation to name a few.
Symptoms of suboptimal thyroid include hair loss, weight gain, cold intolerance, dry skin, fatigue, constipation, and depression.

Semaglutide is a GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide) receptor agonist. You may know this medication advertised as Ozempic or Wegovy. This medication has become a life-changing option for overweight or obese individuals. It works by stimulating your pancreas to increase insulin which causes your stomach to empty at a slower pace thus making you feel fuller for longer periods of time. The brain also receives this signal. The end result is a powerful appetite suppressant effect based on the patient's own insulin production.
Tirzepatide acts on GLP-1 receptors as well; however, in addition (and different than Semaglutide), it also acts on glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) receptors. You may know this medication advertised as Mounjaro. These are both hormones that your system releases after you eat. Tirzepatide mimics the effects of these hormones and triggers your pancrease to release insulin. This results in your liver lowering the amount of glucose the body produces. This slows down digestion, lowers blood sugar, and makes you feel full.

Hormone replacement therapy is needed when your body is unable to produce testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen, whether from menopause, aging, surgery, or a traumatic injury. Symptoms can include hot flashes, painful sex, sleep disruption, fatigue, brain fog, loss of libido, weight gain, joint and muscle pain, or depression.
Long-term benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy include improvements in your mental health, lower your risk of heart disease and improve your overall health.
Treatment options if appropriate include transdermal patchs, oral tablets, and vaginal cream. Other medication may be prescribed such as Progesterone which protects the uterine lining while taking estrogen, and has the added benefit of improving sleep for many women.
