Testosterone, antidote for libido loss and weight gain

When low testosterone causes sexual dysfunction, a diminished sex drive, or loss of those morning erections, many men are reluctant to admit it, even to their closest friends. The fact is, according to the Food & Drug Administration, 5 million men suffer from low testosterone, but only 5% are being treated. Makes you wonder why, especially since testosterone hormone replacement is such a simple and effective solution to men’s sexual issues.

Low T can occur at any age. Whether young, middle-aged, or senior, there’s no reason why you should let unbalanced hormones diminish your sexual life.

Testosterone therapy can restore healthy sexual excitement and desire, which in turn, results in an improvement in mood and overall well-being.

If your blood pressure and cholesterol are through the roof, or heading that way, your doctor may recommend diet, exercise and an assortment of pills as a means of controlling them. That’s like treating the symptoms, rather than eliminating the source of the problem. Similarly, Viagra is prescribed to alleviate the symptoms of sexual dysfunction, never addressing the root cause.

Benefits of Testosterone Therapy

We are proud to report that every man who has undergone testosterone therapy at LivingYoung says the same thing: “I feel stronger, healthier and sexier.” All too often, men assume that as they age, their sexual activity will diminish. There is no need to accept this loss of sexuality. Testosterone can restore healthy sexual excitement and desire, which in turn, results in an improvement in mood and overall well-being. If that’s not enough, you can also expect these additional great benefits:

  • Increased muscle mass and strength
  • Lowered cholesterol levels
  • Increased energy, stamina and endurance
  • Improved mental functioning and ability, improved concentration and focus
  • Protection against heart disease

HGH, antidote for crankiness, saggy skin, brittle bones and a whole lot more

HGH (Human Growth Hormone) is produced in the pituitary gland, the body’s “master” gland. It affects nearly every cell in the body where it stimulates the release of several hundred growth factors. It is necessary as an aid to help other hormones penetrate into the cells and react more efficiently.

If there were a “fountain of youth,” it would be comprised of HGH for it provides the body with all the physical and mental qualities we associate with youthfulness: strength, creativity, sound sleep, friendliness, mental focus and so many more.

So fundamental is HGH to proper physiological functioning, that its decline in the body correlates directly to the aging process. Like many other hormones, HGH peaks in the early twenties and then starts on its downward slide. By the time you are 50, you have half the amount you had as a 20-something and if you reach 90, you’ve have about 10% of the amount you started with.

When you lose HGH, you lose those great physical and mental qualities of youthfulness.  They are often replaced by cynicism, negativity, the loss of enthusiasm and the inability to share, compromise or innovate, as well as flabby abdomens and weak muscles. No wonder the stereotype of “cranky old people” lives on. It’s caused by a physical fact of life … loss of HGH.

Many of the symptoms associated with aging can be successfully alleviated by re-balancing this one hormone in particular.

Based on much experience with HGH therapies, our physician is extremely confident prescribing Sermorelin as a means to increase HGH production. Sermorelin stimulates the pituitary to produce more Human Growth Hormone. In the majority of cases, Sermorelin is all that’s needed to reap the rewards of balanced HGH. However, there are some resistant cases where even Sermorelin cannot coax the pituitary into secreting adequate levels of HGH. In these instances, Human Growth Hormone is prescribed.

The benefits of HGH Hormone Therapy are far-reaching. A correctly balanced HGH therapy program will improve both how you feel and how you look:

Energy: increased energy and emotional stability

Skin: increased elasticity, texture and tightness; rebuilt collagen

Bone: improved bone strength

Sexual Power: increased sexual potency and frequency

Muscle: increased muscle strength and mass

Fat: decreased fat tissue, especially abdominal fat

Memory: improved mental functioning and strength

Heart: improved cardiovascular strength and lower blood pressure

Kidney: improved kidney function

Immune System: improved immunity and healing

Hair: improved hair texture; resolution of graying hair

Cholesterol: elevates HDL and lowers LDL

Vision: improves nearsightedness and farsightedness

The beauty of HGH therapy with Sermorelin is that it is very customizable enabling us to prescribe the exact dosage that will give you the results you desire.

Progesterone, antidote for middle-age paunch and daytime sleepiness

The loss of progesterone has been blamed for many things, but the most obvious is the development of the middle-age paunch in men. Why? Progesterone is the #1 hormone for lowering insulin levels (insulin is the hormone that creates fat right around the middle. Without sufficient progesterone, insulin levels go up and blood sugars go down. This insulin spike also causes daytime drowsiness, or sleepiness after eating or while driving.

One of the first benefits men experience after starting Progesterone therapy is that they no longer experience those inconvenient bouts of sleepiness. And, in time, that middle-age paunch has an opportunity to flatten out.

Other benefits include:

• It acts as a natural diuretic
• It produces a calming, anti-anxiety effect
• It enhances your body’s defenses
• It improves the breakdown of fat into energy
• It cuts the craving for carbohydrates and sweets
• It contributes to the formation of new bone tissue
• It increases HDL, the body’s good cholesterol
• May help prevent Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis
• May eliminate asthma
• Prevention of coronary artery spasm
• Reverse of depression


There is a growing consensus in the medical community that all men over 50 should take progesterone as a possible prevention against prostate cancer.

Thyroid Hormones, antidote for weight loss or weight gain

The thyroid principally secretes thryoxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) which are produced from the iodine found in the food you eat.  These hormones are a major factor in metabolism, and affect men and women in similar ways. Many things can affect the thyroid, especially stress, hormone imbalance and nutritional deficiencies, causing it to be underactive (hypothyroidism) or overactive (hyperthyroidism). Both conditions produce undesirable symptoms, such as weight gain in an underactive thyroid and weight loss in an overactive thyroid.

When treating thyroid problems, there is a delicate delicate balance that needs to be reestablished to achieve success. Based on the results of our specialized Thyroid Test, our physician will help you understand the levels of your thyroid hormones and what needs to be done to balance them. This includes a customized plan that includes Bio-Identical hormone replacement, supplements, and fitness and nutrition guidance.

Pregnenolone, antidote for stress and brain fog

Pregnenolone, a steroid hormone produced primarily by the adrenal gland from cholesterol, is the building block for all other steroid hormones. It is converted directly into DHEA and/or progesterone. DHEA converts to testosterone and estrogens; progesterone converts to estrogens, cortisol, and aldosterone. It is this succession of conversions that makes human life possible. Without pregnenolone, there can be no human steroid hormone production.

Like many health-promoting hormones, levels of pregnenolone drop with age. At 75, our bodies typically make 60% less pregnenolone than at age 35. This is a point of great concern, considering pregnenolone’s numerous protective, health-promoting properties.

Benefits of Pregnenolone Supplementation

Brain. Research indicates that pregnenolone can contribute to increased intellience, learning ability, alertness, memory and the feeling of well-being.  It also helps improve vision, and particularly the ability to discriminate among colors.

Adrenal Health. Pregnenolone is considered an “anti-stress” hormone. For people who lead stressful lives, pregnenolone protects the adrenal glands and helps to maintain balance.

Immunity. Pregnenolone has proven to help against rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune condition. Clients report less pain and fatigue and more strength.

No Prescription Needed
Pregnenolone is available as an over-the-counter supplement at health food stores and many drug stores. However, to get the precise dosage recommended by our physician, we recommend obtaining your pregnenolone through our compounding pharmacy for best potency and quality.

Hormone Therapy starts with a conversation.

Most often, people discover for themselves that they no longer have the energy, stamina, muscle tone, or enthusiasm they once had … and they want it back. The first thing you should do if considering hormone therapy is to make a self-assessment of your current physical, mental and sexual feelings. We offer comprehensive self-tests that help you perform this self-assessment. (Free copies available at our facilities.)

If you suspect your hormones are to blame, contact us to schedule a consultation with our Hormone Therapy Specialist to discuss the results of your self-assessment. This consultation is completely free, no strings attached. Based on this conversation, our Hormone Specialist will determine if you are a good candidate for hormone therapy. If so, she will then order a Comprehensive Blood Panel Test for you.

The results of this test will enable us to pinpoint any hormonal imbalances or deficiencies. This is where experience with hormones really counts.  If indicated, our physician will prescribe Bio-Identical Hormones in the precise dosage you require. The blood test also provides information about any micronutrient deficiencies that may keep you from feeling your best. This alone is valuable information, saving you money and a willy-nilly approach to over-the-counter supplements.

Traditionally, the replenishment of unbalanced hormones through a hormone therapy program has been accomplished using pills, patches, creams and injections on a daily basis.

An increasing popular choice is to have testosterone “pellets” inserted in the fatty tissue underneath the skin. Pellets contain a natural plant source of testosterone and are compounded by a pharmacist under strict federal guidelines.  These pellets, smaller than a grain of rice, most closely mimic the action of the testes with regard to hormone release into the bloodstream.

Dosing is customized for the patient’s specific needs. The beauty of using pellets is that they deliver pure, bio-identical hormones 24/7 for up to five months.

Implantation of the pellets is a simple and quick in-office procedure that makes rebalancing your hormones easier than ever.

As you can see, the Hormone Therapy program is simple. Consultation with our Hormone Specialist is free and is the first step toward finding out if your hormones are working for you … or against you! You owe it to yourself to start a conversation with us today!
