Testosterone

Anti-Aging Testosterone Injections
When you want to stop the aging process, you need to adjust your chemical or hormonal imbalance. Many men have an issue with low testosterone, but they don’t know how to correct this problem. When you start a new regimen of testosterone injections, you can keep your body youthful, regain your energy, and clear up your skin at the same time. Read more about how testosterone can change your life and make your body that much stronger.

What Do Testosterone Injections Do?

When you are going to the doctor or a medical clinic for assistance, you may be prescribed these injections because they help you clear up your skin, allow your hair to grow, speed up your metabolism, and give you the energy that you need. You may not have realized how much you were slumping over the past few months or years, but the testosterone that you are taking can quite literally change your life.

Weight Loss

You will not automatically lose weight because you started taking testosterone injections, but your body will begin to metabolize in a much more efficient manner. Because of this, you will see your body start to slim down. At the same time, you can begin to exercise and eat right. By doing this, you are giving your body the file it needs to thrive.

You can change your diet and exercise plan at the same time. You will have more energy because your body is metabolizing properly, and you will not feel sluggish like you did in the past.

Renewed Energy

You will have quite a lot of energy when your body has synthesized enough of the testosterone in your program. Your body might not have been able to sleep, and it may have been hard for you to stay awake during the day. Because of this, you did not feel as though you could function normally during the day. Now that you are much more energetic and changing your lifestyle, you can get on a routine that does not require an afternoon nap.

A Reduction In Joint Pain

Your posture will change because you will feel a reduction in joint pain. You will have a much better posture because you feel like you can stand up straight, and you will also notice that you can move a bit more quickly during the day because your joints are a bit stronger. Of course, it will take your body time to heal completely. However, it is nice to know that you can change your daily routine by using these injections.

Conclusion

When you are using a new hormone and chemical regimen to bring your body back to life, you will see the difference in the mirror, feel as though you are more energetic, and will have a nice appearance because your hair and nails are healthier. You can lose weight, and you can even start working out again because you are using a product that makes you feel young again.

Estrogen

ESTROGENS: Estrone (E1), Estradiol (E2), Estriol (E3), 16 OH Estrone, 4 OH Estrone, 2 OH Estrone

Estrogen is responsible for keeping the female and male healthy in too many ways to mention here. However, most notably, it maintains bones and muscle mass, keeps the skin and vaginal mucosa healthy, and minimizes breast sagging.

If a woman or man has a family or personal history of breast cancer, their estrogen metabolism should be evaluated and addressed if needed (16 OH Estrone). If you are having hot flashes and you are over 30 years old, chances are good that you have estrogen deficiency and you could be peri-menopausal (early menopause). Not all women have hot flashes with low estrogen.

For hormone replacement therapy, we prefer bio identical hormones BHRT over non-bio identical hormones. Be careful, plant estrogens, or phytoestrogens, and other hormones derived from plants may be considered “natural” estrogens but are NOT bio-identical. Phytoestrogens are natural but are not the same as human estrogens, so they are NOT bio-identical and should not be used for hormonal replacement.

Estrogen like Testosterone is a hormone made of cholesterol. For women and men taking cholesterol lowering medication, it should be noted that they could have an important impact on lowering estrogen levels. Estrogens should NOT be taken orally as this can result in lowering Growth Hormone (GH) among other problems.

Estrogen can be administered by daily creams and gels or by pellets inserted under the skin that last about 4 months. These pellets are inserted only by Dr. Arthur Zacco in our office in about 15-20 minutes.
