What does the Bioidentical Hormone 5 (1)

What Does the Bioidentical Hormone Program Involve

Bioidentical Hormone GHRP-2 is a synthetic analog of the peptide hormone ghrelin. Ghrelin is a small 28 amino acid peptide that is produced by the stomach in response to hunger. It also activates the human growth hormone secretagogue receptor (also known as the ghrelin receptor) to stimulate GH production and metabolism. GHRP-2 functions similarly to stimulate the hypothalamus and increase the production of endogenous GH from the pituitary gland; synthesis then slowly drops back to baseline by the third hour after administration. This more closely replicates the pulsatile nature of endogenous GH production, which makes it advantageous and potentially safer compared with synthetic HGH use.

The Importance of Exercise 5 (2)

 

Exercise is Important why? 

Exercise, As humans, we are not designed to be stationary. Our ancestors were hunter-gatherers who were forced to live active lives to find food and survive. Unfortunately, today’s lifestyle is increasingly sedentary, which can exacerbate several of the symptoms of healthy aging and aging-related diseases.

aai-logo

If you are reading this article, you might be concerned with the symptoms caused by the declining hormone levels that occur during aging. You might even be receiving or considering HGH & Testosterone Therapy with AAI Rejuvenation Clinic. However, did you know that building and maintaining a regular exercise regime can increase your energy levels, reduce pain and the symptoms of illness, and improve your mood and memory? Exercise is a critical part of healthy aging. Read on to learn more about how exercise can complement your hormone replacement therapy to help you feel young and full of life.

Physical Benefits of Exercise

Although the tangible benefits of exercise are clear, some people still avoid exercising because of their age, physical state, or lack of time. None of these are good excuses! Exercise is crucial for all of us, whether we need to lose weight, want to build muscle, or strengthen our joints. The physical benefits of exercise include:

  • Fat loss and muscle gain. One of the best-characterized effects of a well-designed exercise regimen is an altered body composition, which results in a reduced fat mass and an increased muscle mass. Although this may not manifest as “weight loss,” since muscle weighs more than fat, these changes in your physical composition are highly desirable!
  • Improved mobility, balance, flexibility, and coordination. Movement, balance, and coordination are critical for so many aspects of daily life but, unfortunately, these often decline as we age. Several low-impact exercises can improve your balance and coordination, and some exercise suggested by the Mayo Clinic can be found. Nevertheless, please bear in mind that only physician-supervised exercise programs should be followed to ensure that you receive the maximal benefit without risking your health.
  • Reduce the risk of chronic diseases. The long-term benefits of a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise seem to be never-ending. For example, active individuals have a significantly lower risk of diseases such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and even cancer [1-3]. Although the mechanisms behind these effects are involved, they include improved immune function, enhanced metabolism, lower blood pressure, improved digestion, and increased hormone secretion.

Emotional and Mental Benefits of Exercise

The benefits associated with a regular exercise program are not just physical! By helping to normalize your hormone levels, improving your immune and metabolic function, and enhancing your body composition, exercise also has the following mental and emotional benefits:

  • Reduced stress and improved mood. A key advantage of exercise is its ability to rapidly and efficiently reduce weight [4]. Exercise stimulates the release of endorphins, which result in a feeling of happiness and reduced anxiety and sadness [5]. Because being physically active reduces your fat mass and increases your muscle mass, active individuals often have more confidence, which further improves mood.
  • Improved sleep. Science has confirmed that regular exercise helps you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer [6]. Indeed, people who do not do get regular exercise are more likely to feel tired during the day.

Boost Your Hormone Levels

In addition to all the fantastic benefits described above, exercise can also boost the body’s natural hormone production via a number of mechanisms. The ability of exercise to stimulate testosterone therapy, GH, and IGF-I output has been reported in several different populations. For example:

  • The Importance of Exercise free testosterone levels in women [7].
  • The Importance of Exercise such as resistance training reduces blood pressure and increases testosterone levels in overweight and obese men [8, 9].
  • Anaerobic exercise increases IGF-I levels in young men and GH levels in both men and women [10].

Interesting Hormone Therapy Facts. Real HRT Truths 5 (2)

Hormone Therapy Facts and Real Truths about HRT

Hormone Therapy Facts, HRT info

Ready to learn something new? Below are some interesting Hormone Therapy Facts. Many people are now looking for real HRT info. We love to educate and help any and everyone that comes to our clinic and organization. Whether you are looking to become a member and patient or, the stars aligned so you’d cross our paths, you’ll always learn something new with us. It’s our goal!

We are finally turning a corner; finally coming from behind the guise of the false, taboo veil that was tossed over the practice of hormone replenishment and body optimizing. You can live longer, healthier and with a significantly better quality of life…. If you just learn the truths.

Sermorelin/HGH Therapy:

  • Remember, HGH therapy will produce faster results than Sermorelin therapy in a great majority of the cases.
  • Optimal IGF-1 levels needed to produce results expected from an hGH protocol must reach levels of around 360 ng/ml
  • IGF-1 levels are much better manipulated with hGH therapy when compared to Sermorelin therapy.
  • Sermorelin’s efficiency is dependent on the patient’s pituitary health and function.
  • A person with a well-functioning pituitary can ‘eventually’ expect comparable results to a person on just hGH therapy.
  • Sermorelin is self-regulating. You can’t do too much of it. Whatever your body doesn’t use, it eliminates. This adds to the safeness of this medication.
  • The body is more ‘receptive’ to Sermorelin therapy because of the natural pulsating release from the pituitary it promotes, which the body is accustom to and welcomes. This helps with ensuring to minimize side effects from therapy.

Quick analogy: If you had to get to NY from here, and you had an option to take a Kia or a Ferrari, which would you take? They both will get you to your goal/destination. But, which one will get you there faster? Well, hGH is the Ferrari and Sermorelin are the Kia. They will both produce the same results but, hGH will produce them faster. (not safer… but faster)

Testosterone Therapy and Hormone Therapy facts:

  • The longest ester is Cypionate (7-day half-life)
  • Second longest is Enanthate (5-day half-life)
  • Last is Propionate (1.5-day half-life)
  • The longer the medication stays in your body, the higher the potentiality of side effects. For this reason, Propionate is the better of the testosterones EXCEPT that because  of its short ester and molecular structure, it must be injected several times weekly and…. it hurts (this is the reason its usually prescribed in combination with another ester)
  • The point of the “supporting” nutraceuticals is to “prevent any unwanted side effects while on therapy”.
  • The point of the “Post Cycle Therapy” is to reactivate your LH and FSH (Signals from the brain to testes) to restart natural production of sperm and testosterone. Also, during this period, patients should be prescribed medications to flush out any residual estrogen left over after therapy.
  • There are some correlations between testosterone therapy and the prostate. It is not conclusive or definitive, as determined by any scientific study, that testosterone therapy has a direct, negative impact on the prostate, however, it is the current medical consensus and as such, must be significantly catered to and observed.
  • AAI Rejuvenation clinic will ensure proper testing of patient’s prostate and other testosterone sensitive tissues through our physician organized blood exams. This test can even be done in the privacy of a patient home, pain-free.
  • AAI Prostate test is not invasive at all.
  • Testosterone is one of the most powerful antioxidants for a man’s heart
  • There is a direct correlation between low t levels and a decrease in cardiac function, health, and output.
  • Issues of a heart attack due to testosterone therapy are mostly connected to the fact that testosterone increases your red blood count. It thickens the patient’s blood over time.
  • AAI clinics can easily assist patients who’re blood has gotten thick from the use of testosterone therapy, in an effort to eliminate that side effect, so they may safely and consciously continue their testosterone health regimen.

Other Hormone Therapy facts:

  • Patients should be aware that all therapy benefits are based on a minimum of 6 months of therapy.  Patients should remember that they did not get to where they are overnight so, they will not get where they want to be overnight.
  • Once hormone levels get to healthy, youthful levels, the patient must be disciplined with their regimen in order to ‘maintain’ those levels optimal. Only after maintaining those levels elevated for a continual period does the body eventually respond to them, promoting all the curative actions, regeneration and betterment patients want and expect from these therapies.
  • Therapies may also be shipped to their place of business. Let them know their meds are sent in discreet, FedEx or UPS packages.

Please feel welcome to contact us anytime if you have any questions or even comments. We’d love to discuss your opinions. This is a place of education before a place of business. These hormone therapy facts are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the unique information we can help supply you. You don’t have to wait until you have decided to move forward with therapy to contact us. Contact us just to pick our brains… go back and forth relative to “facts” about that what these therapies and program can really do for you as an individual; with your specific issues and problems.

Do you Know You Hormone Levels? Weight Gain 5 (2)

Do you Know You Hormone Levels? Weight Gain

Once we hit age 30, it’s all downhill for the body’s hormone levels. The lean body mass (LBM) of our organs starts to decrease, while the adipose mass, or fat mass, increases. Between the ages of 30 thru 75, the liver, kidneys, brain and pancreas atrophy by 30% on average. In men between the ages of 40 thru 80, the LBM declines about 5% per decade and in women by 2.5% per decade. Meanwhile, during this same period, the body fat in both sexes is increasing. By the late 30s, men are starting to gain fat in the abdomen. Men between the ages of 30 thru 70 don’t gain weight, but women’s mass shrinks by 30% and the fat expand by 50%. Women, as they age mainly, accumulate fat on their hips and as menopause starts, the belly rolls begin.

These changes aren’t part of the aging process, but a threat to health and longevity, according to gerontologist. First, the amount of aerobic power is directly connected to the amount of LBM. Second, this shrinkage of the vital organs means that they cannot do their jobs as well, whether it is the heart pumping, the muscles lifting, or the kidneys clearing metabolic wastes from the blood. Third, as the abdominal fat rises, so does the risk for heart attack, hypertension, and diabetes.

In one study by St. Thomas’ Hospital in London, of 24 adults with Human Growth Hormone (HGH) deficiency, half the group was put on Human Growth Hormone Levels and the other half was given a placebo. At the end of the six-month period, the hormone treated group had no change in weight. But they had lost an average of 12.5 pounds of fat and gained an average of 12.1 pounds of lean body mass, which is mostly muscle. The increase in their lean body mass was 10.8%. The bodies became sleeker and more tapered, as shown by the significant decrease in their waist to hip ratio. Although this study was conducted on patients with pituitary diseases, the researchers note that recombinant Human Growth Hormone Levels reduces fat mass by about 20%, which suggests that growth hormone has a regulatory effect on fat mass in normal adults.

The fact that Human Growth Hormone was the reason for these changes could clearly be seen when this clinical research stopped giving the Human Growth Hormone. The men’s bodies fast forwarded to old-age. And if that weren’t proof enough, consider the fate of the untreated controls. At the same time that the treated man was morphing into younger versions of themselves, the untreated control group was careening downhill, their lean body mass and organs shrinking by an average of 2.5 – 4.5% a year.

HGH therapy does have a shapeshifting effect on the body.

Low Hormone and What’s Causing The Low Energy 5 (3)

What’s Causing Low Energy

Symptoms of aging can be a direct result of diminishing levels of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) in the body. As we age, our bodies produce less and less HGH, causing low energy and fatigue.

Memory Support, Protocol Sermorelin therapy

By the age of thirty, most people are deficient in human growth hormone, resulting in SDS, or Somatotropin Deficiency Syndrome. Somatotropin is another term for HGH. Without HGH therapy, growth hormone levels continue to decline, sometimes referred to as somatopause. Symptoms include:

Clinical evidence demonstrates that by replenishing HGH, the symptoms of stratopause can be dramatically reversed. HGH can assist in reclaiming your youth and vitality. Here at AAI Rejuvenation Clinic, we’re ready to help. Our services are discrete and confidential. Contact us today at (866) 224-5698 or fill out our medical history form. Our trained wellness team is eager to get you started.

Testosterone (Low-T) and chronic low energy?

It’s not easy to accept. Heck, it’s not even easy to notice. It sort of sneaks up on you like that lazy feeling on a Sunday afternoon, after a long day and a big meal. Actually, it’s exactly like that gradual, crippling feeling. Men experience a slow, yet steady decline in testosterone as they age. The ongoing loss of this male sex hormone is sometimes referred to as male menopause or andropause, and like female menopause, hormonal changes can come with a number of undeniable symptoms, including fatigue.

Testosterone injections play a vital role in the body’s immune response. As testosterone levels decline, the body compensates by redistributing its energy and resources to the immune system and thereby taking a toll on your energy levels, resulting in this testosterone-related fatigue you keep hearing and reading about.

Another potential relationship between testosterone and fatigue is sleep disruption. It isn’t uncommon for a drop in testosterone levels to cause sleep disruptions in men and women. This can be a double-edged sword. Why? Testosterone is naturally released into the body in different periods throughout a 24-hour day, mainly at night when you sleep. However, usually, most of it occurs about 3 hours into your sleep cycle. If you are suffering from low testosterone, you are most likely not experiencing quality sleep, if you’re sleeping at all. In turn, this means that your natural testosterone production suffers due to this lack of quality sleep. Think about this unfortunate cycle and how it begins your hormonal downward spiral, and with it, all the vigorous attributions associated with it.

The loss of energy, lack of sleep, fatigue and other symptoms linked with diminishing testosterone levels is not something we have to learn to deal with. It’s certainly not something we have to live with. Here at AAI Clinics, we delve deeper into each of our patient’s history, goals, and file characteristics. We truly understand that each of our bodies works differently when in the process of organizing your individualized lifestyle-change profile and pharmaceutical protocol. There is no fix-all remedy. A thorough evaluation of your blood work will reveal strengths and areas of focus, signs of potential concerning health manifestations in the future, as well as ailments that you may be suffering from right now, some of which you may not even be aware of. Testosterone replacement therapy, aided by supplemental pharmaceuticals, not only can increase causing low energy levels and drastically reduce fatigue, but testosterone therapy has also been proven to improve mood, bone density, strengthen the immune system, reduce body fat and improve muscle mass as well as lessen feelings of depression.
