Testosterone therapy

Testosterone is a steroid hormone that is present in the bodies of both men and women, although men have higher concentrations of it. Testosterone is made in the testes, ovaries, and adrenal glands and is derived from cholesterol. It is primarily responsible for the development of the male reproductive system and also plays a role in body hair growth, muscle mass, fat distribution, voice depth, and libido. In the body, some testosterone is converted into dihydrotestosterone, which plays a role in prostate enlargement and baldness, and estradiol, which is a type of estrogen.

It is normal for testosterone levels to decrease with age. This can be a result of declining testicular function as well as modifiable lifestyle factors, like how much you are exercising. However, some men have low testosterone independent of this age-related decline. And while there are many possible causes for low testosterone (alcohol abuse, diabetes, genetic disorders, metabolic disorders, medications, trauma, etc.), some men may never discover what is causing it in them. Low testosterone is a medical condition that should be treated with the guidance of a healthcare professional. 

There are a variety of symptoms you may be experiencing that could indicate you have low testosterone. Having little interest in sex or having difficulty getting or maintaining an erection are two of the sexual symptoms related to low testosterone. However, there are also more nonspecific symptoms such as low energy, depression, decreased muscle mass, increased fat mass, and decreased body hair. If you have any of these symptoms, you should talk to your healthcare provider about whether you may be suffering from low testosterone

If you think you may have low testosterone, you should talk to a healthcare provider. Your healthcare provider will likely ask many questions to find out more about your medical history, your risk factors, and your symptoms.

A blood test can then diagnose whether or not you have low testosterone. Your testosterone levels change throughout the day and are generally highest in the morning, so it is likely that your healthcare provider will ask you to do the blood test between 8:00am and 10:00am.

Once you have the results, your healthcare provider will be able to counsel you on the next best steps for you. If you do have low testosterone, your healthcare provider may try to figure out the cause or may suggest treating you with testosterone replacement therapy or other therapies to increase testosterone levels.

Vitamin D is necessary for the normal functioning of several bodily processes. One study on overweight men who had a vitamin D deficiency found that after a year of supplementation with vitamin D, testosterone levels increased. Another small study found that supplementation with vitamin D was associated with increased testosterone levels and improved erectile function. However, vitamin D has not been evaluated by the FDA as a treatment for low testosterone and further studies need to be done to better understand the effects and optimal dosing of vitamin D.

Zinc is necessary for the normal functioning of several bodily processes. One study found that restriction of zinc led to a decline in testosterone levels, while supplementation in those who were zinc-deficient led to increased testosterone levels. Another very limited study has shown that zinc supplementation is associated with improved semen quality and a study in rats indicated that zinc supplementation may be associated with improved sexual competence. However, zinc has not been evaluated by the FDA as a treatment for low testosterone and further studies need to be done to better understand the effects and optimal dosing of zinc.

One concern with taking testosterone replacement therapy is that the artificially introduced testosterone can suppress the body’s drive to create its own natural testosterone. As a result, when testosterone replacement therapy is abruptly stopped, there may be a period of time that the body is producing less testosterone than it is capable of.

Testosterone therapy is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. That being said, some men may find that their stamina and performance during sex do improve while on testosterone therapy.

Restoring testosterone levels to within the normal range by using testosterone replacement therapy can improve many of the effects of hypogonadism. Most importantly, these include beneficial effects on mood, energy levels and patients’ sense of well-being, sexual function, lean body mass and muscle strength, erythropoiesis and bone mineral density (BMD), cognition and some benefits on cardiovascular risk factors.

Bioidentical hormone therapy

We calculate the dosing of your bioidentical hormone mixture based on your unique hormone levels. To be truly bioidentical, we want to check your levels to make sure they are in balance. Your insurance will typically pay for blood testing. Your physician will use the results of this lab testing along with your medical history and current symptoms to make a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.

When we are young, our hormone production is in a more balanced state. Both males and females produce testosterone, estrogen and progesterone, just in different ratios depending on sex. As our hormone production decreases, we may develop a host of systemic conditions. For females, this period of life is called Menopause. There is also a Perimenopausal period where women first start to notice issues. During this phase of life female symptoms may include: hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, decreased libido, headaches, vaginal dryness, joint pain, nerve pain, anxiety and insomnia, just to name a few.

For males, this period is called Andropause. Symptoms can start in the mid-thirties and may include: weight gain, erectile dysfunction, decreased libido, loss of muscle and strength, brain fog, fatigue and decreased motivation. Our sex hormones are very powerful substances that regulate many different bodily systems. When hormones start declining, the simple fact is that we noticeably begin to age (interiorly and exteriorly).

Replenishing with bioidentical hormones is part of the science of Anti-Aging. This treatment is known as Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy or BHRT.

Yam powder. Which is why your body can easily absorb it. IT’s 100% natural.

The term “bioidentical” means the hormones in the product are chemically identical to those your body produces. At molecularly level, it means the hormone that you’re replacing is exactly the same as what your body produces naturally. The molecules of synthetic hormones are slightly different. There are hormone receptors all over your body. Think of these receptors as locks and hormone molecules as the keys. The synthetic molecules don’t fit into those locks quite right, which means they don’t work the same way in your body—often with detrimental consequences.

You may be wondering… why do pharmaceutical companies make synthetic hormones with molecules that are slightly different? Because it’s the only way they can patent them. Bioidentical hormones can’t be patented.

Method Health has multiple compounding pharmacies – one in Kentucky and one in Florida – which ship directly to your door wherever you live in the United States.

Yes—if it’s done correctly, and under the supervision of an experienced doctor.

Bioidentical hormone therapy is evidence-based and scientifically validated treatment. 

Not necessarily.

It really depends on how well your body responds to Hormone therapy. Also important is how well you manage your diet, sleep patterns, exercise, and stress levels. Paying attention to basic self-care will really assist you in regaining hormonal balance.

Generally speaking, there are fewer side effects compared to synthetic derivatives. For most, the positive benefits far out-weigh any negative symptoms. However, dose related symptoms may occur. It is a matter of modifying the particular hormone dose to achieve the desired results.

Method Health provides patients with a continuum of care that makes feeling better easy. When hormones and other treatments are administered correctly—and correctly is the only way we do things—there should be no side effects.

Hormone replacement therapy at Method Health is safe.

Our medical providers understand the underlying science, research, and difference between synthetic and bioidentical hormones. Unlike other clinics, our medical providers ONLY prescribe bioidentical hormones to ensure the safety and health of our members.

Method Health physicians have utilized extensive resources to become experts in this field. Our medical providers have specialized knowledge in the field of hormone replacement, hormone optimization, and anti-aging medicine.*

Bioidentical hormones are not formed in nature but are made, or synthesized, from a plant chemical extracted from yams and soy. Bioidentical estrogens are 17 beta-estradiol, estrone, and estriol.

Estradiol is the form of estrogen that decreases at menopause. Estradiol is a female sex hormone produced by the ovaries, adrenal gland and also the placenta during pregnancy. Estradiol is the most important hormone during a female’s reproductive years, and is required for reproductive and sexual function as well as having an impact on the health of other organs and tissues. Low estrogen levels can interfere with sex drive and sexual functions. It can also increase your risk of obesity, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular disease.

You should always discuss any side effects or unusual changes with your team doctor. Your medical team is available to you any time. Simply contact your medical team leader and set up an appointment to speak to them directly about what’s going on?

Hair loss

Method Health provides a discreet, convenient way for you to receive hair loss treatment from a doctor or nurse practitioner who craft a personalized treatment plan for you.

Hair loss treatment can work to preserve hair and possibly even regrow hair. In one study, finasteride was effective at stopping hair loss in 83% of men (compared to 28% for the placebo group). In one European study, men treated with finasteride over a five-year period experienced “a 93% decrease relative to placebo in the 5-year likelihood of developing further hair loss.”

Finasteride regrows hair less well, but it does provide a benefit for some men. In one study, the authors found that the chances of mild to moderate visible regrowth were 61% on the vertex after 2 years. The chances of mild to moderate visible regrowth on the frontal area were 37% after 1 year.

Finasteride typically takes three to four months of daily use to start seeing visible changes. It can take up to a year to see the maximum results. As long as you don’t experience side effects, it’s best to continue the medication for one full year before deciding on whether the medication is doing all it can for you. Like all medications, finasteride will work differently for different people. To sustain benefits, you have to continue using hair loss medication. If you stop, your hair loss may return.

In clinical trials, some men experienced sexual dysfunction due to finasteride. This included a decrease in sexual desire (libido), a decrease in semen volume, or erectile dysfunction (ED). These side effects were noted in 3.8% of men taking finasteride and in 2.1% of men taking a placebo.

In addition, finasteride can lower serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels and may increase the risk of high-grade prostate cancers. If you are being screened for prostate cancer, you should let your healthcare provider know that you are taking finasteride. Also, as finasteride enters the system, it may cause shedding of fine hairs before it stops or reverses hair loss. Do not be concerned—this part is expected.

Erectile dysfunction

Method Health provides a discreet, convenient, and affordable way for you to receive erectile dysfunction (ED) treatment from a doctor or nurse practitioner.

To treat erectile dysfunction (ED), Method Health offers oral medications known as phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. PDE5 inhibitors are considered one of the mainstays of ED treatment by the American Urological Association. There are many different types of PDE5 inhibitors that differ by how quickly they start working, how long they last, their side effects, and more. Each prescription is tailored to the individual patient.

According to Viagra’s FDA-approved prescribing information, between 63% and 82% of patients reported an improvement in their erections after taking Viagra. Other PDE5 inhibitors work in a similar way in the body and are also effective. In fact, PDE5 inhibitors are considered one of the mainstays of erectile dysfunction (ED) treatment by the American Urological Association.

It’s important to note that ED medication doesn’t work for everyone, and everyone’s reaction to medication is unique. If you don’t see results right away, your doctor or nurse practitioner may recommend trying the medication multiple times under different circumstances. They may also change your dosage depending on your reaction to the medication and any side effects.

Oral erectile dysfunction (ED) medications are extremely effective, but they don’t work for everyone. Other treatment options for ED include lifestyle modifications (e.g., exercise, dietary changes, quitting smoking, limiting alcohol use), surgery, penile vacuum pumps, and other ED medications. Every treatment comes with risks and benefits that you should fully understand before moving forward with any treatment plan.

Supplements

Pharamaceutical grade supplements are produced in a manner to obtain the purest form of the nutrient and ensure maximum absorption. Due to the addition of various other substances, no product is 100% pure. Pharmaceutical Grade products must excede 99% purity (natural sources) and contain no binders, fillers, excipients, dyes, or unknown substances. Fewer than 3% of the products on the market are pharmaceutical grade.

In order to have a therapeutic effect, nutrients must be absorbed into your bloodstream. The extent to which they can be absorbed is referred to as their bio-availability. Differences in manufacturing create significant differences in bio-availability. Pharmaceutical grade nutrients are only manufactured in FDA registered facilities that follow cGMP, Certified Good Manufacturing Practices, protocol. This ensures the quality and purity of the supplement and allows Neurobiologix to guarantee compliance with the governing regulations.

Most vitamin supplements found in drug and health food stores do not contain vitamins that are truly natural, but are synthesized predominantly from petrochemicals and less frequently from plants. There is much controversy concerning the body’s reaction to synthetic vs. natural vitamin supplements. Many believe that the small differences between synthetic and natural are of no consequence. However, clinical evidence and several studies indicate that the body detects the difference and that natural forms of vitamins including A, B-complex, C, D, and E are more easily absorbed by the body and have a more profound effect on deficiencies and disease than synthetics.

Dietary supplements undoubtedly have to be pure. It must not contain binders, fillers, dyes, excipients or other unknown substances. However, without being regulated by the FDA, can you really take their word for it? How can you be sure that your supplement does not contain anything that will turn out harmful? To remedy this pressing problem, there are guidelines which standardize the dietary supplement market. Institutions such as the USP provide a guarantee that we do not put ourselves in danger by taking supplements that should prolong life in the first place. A supplement that follows the standard guidelines is given a pharmaceutical grade standing. This means that the product is 99% pure without additives or unnecessary substances which may cause unwanted side effects. Therefore, you should not settle for anything less than pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplements. With this grade of vitamins, you are assured that you are getting your money’s worth.

Admittedly, most pharmaceutical grade standards can cost a little more than regular ones. The price difference is not as high though, and is undoubtedly worth every cent. Which would you prefer: a cheap supplement which is not properly absorbed, or a slightly more expensive one which is metabolized and used up well? The next time you get yourself a supplement look for pharmaceutical grade quality to protect yourself and your family from harmful substances. Each supplement at Neurobiologix has been chosen and complies with the highest standards for cGMP manufacturing and meets all Pharmaceutical Grade Guidelines.

IV Therapy

At Method Health, we have a 2,000 square foot luxury IV Lounge with individual rooms where you can listen to your favorite music or stream your favorite show on Netflix.

An IV line is placed into the vein in your arm. The IV line is connected to a bag of treatment. The bag is hung above you on an IV pole, and the IV fluid is delivered safely, steadily, and quickly into your veins.

Despite what many people may think, the needle does not stay in your vein for the entirety of your treatment — just the IV line.

With a vitamin infusion, your body receives nutrients directly into your bloodstream. This bypasses the digestive system, meaning more nutrients are able to be directly absorbed instead of being lost in the metabolization process.

With proper IV treatment, your body can absorb almost 100% of the nutrients being delivered.

The amount of time it takes for treatment will vary from person to person, but on average, you can expect our wellness and recovery IV therapies to take around 45 to 60 minutes, while NAD+ IV therapies take two to four hours.

Absolutely! Intravenous therapy has a long history of safe, effective use. What’s more, medical professionals rely on this type of treatment every day in clinical settings for its incredible ability to safely, effectively, and quickly deliver medication and hydration into a patient’s body.

Here at Method Health, our treatments have been meticulously formulated by our expert medical team, and are administered by our experienced team.
