If you’re like most people, you probably look at yourself in the mirror on occasion and think, “Oh Boy… I need to lose some weight!” Well, you’re not alone. Most people when they look in the mirror see some or many of their own flaws. When you focus on your body and your weight, few people feel perfect. Few of us like our own image and most want to lose weight, get fit and look better...
As a physician, women confide in me all the time. Other than their closest friends, women tell their doctors’ things they wouldn’t tell anyone else. I don’t believe I break any confidence in writing here how emotionally and personally painful most women find cellulite. I don’t believe I violate any confidence when I repeat a statement made by a long-time patient of mine during the midst of a routine pap smear and breast exam. “I have been your patient for 15 years and I’ve never felt embarrassed to have my annual exam in all those years. This year, I ask...
It seems like there has always been controversy about Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) for women. I remember newspapers printing articles about the risks of HRT such as breast cancer, heart disease, blood clots, and some women going crazy. The fact is most of these articles regarding the “Risks of HRT in Women” were mostly nonsense and have been repeatedly proven to be both false and misleading. Some were moderately factual but they were only referring to certain types of prescription HRT medications, specifically the female hormone, “Premarin” and “Provera”, two problem hormones which long ago should have been removed from...
While it might seem like medical weight loss and the HCG diet are a new fads, the fact is HCG and the accompanying medically supervised plan has been around since the 1950’s. Dr. A.T.W. Simeons developed the diet through over 40 years of research in helping extremely obese patients return to safer weight levels. HCG(Human chorionic gonadotropin) is a natural hormone that your body produces. It’s associated with pregnancy, but also helps to reduce appetite and curb hunger. HCG is FDA approved to treat other health conditions, but many physicians prescribe it as part of a safe, medical weight loss...
Stress has always been a part of life. Our adrenal system was designed for extreme survival situations like, being chased by a predator. You’ve probably heard this described as “flight or fight” reactions. These days the kind of stress we experience has changed and occurs more frequently due to our fast-paced lives. Over time, that means we’re responding as if we’re about to be eaten by a wild animal multiple times a day. Adrenal fatigue is thought to be the result of this response. The good news is that hormone imbalances such as adrenal fatigue can be treated with things...
As men and women age, the levels of hormones in their bodies begin to fluctuate. As these hormones begin to fluctuate, the changing hormonal levels can have a number of long-term adverse health effects. Hormonal Imbalance in Men If you’re a man experiencing any number of the following symptoms: Decreased libido (sex drive), night sweats, loss of energy, decreased strength and/or endurance, bad temper or grumpy, erectile dysfunction, Central obesity, deterioration of your ability to work, workout or play sports, weight(fat) gain , loss of sleep, need to go to sleep after dinner, and a difficult time enjoying life than...
As people age, decreasing hormone levels become an increasingly important health concern. In the past, people generally lived only until their 30s, 40s and 50s. Due this short lifespan, there was little need for people to maintain their peak physical and mental fitness past their child-rearing ages...
Menopause is a natural part of life that any woman who lives long enough will experience. Typically occurring in two stages, the” Peri-Menopause” stage usually begins around age 35-40 and lasts until the woman’s menstrual cycle stops for at least one full year. The second stage is generally referred to as the “Post-Menopause” stage and it begins one year after the woman’s last or final menstrual cycle and lasts through the rest of her life. Many women continue to menstruate throughout the Peri-Menopause stage, so for simplicity’s sake, most of the time menopause starts after a year of no menstrual...
Sermorelin is a type of biologically active analog of a growth hormone releasing factor (GRF 1-44), which is in itself a peptide analog of growth hormone-releasing hormone naturally produced by the brain. Its function is primarily to stimulate the natural production of human growth hormone (HGH) by the pituitary gland. Sermorelin is not a growth hormone—it helps stimulate your own growth hormone. Growth hormones are important for all people. While we are still young, growth hormone releasing hormones (GHRH) activate our pituitary glands to release growth hormones, which help the body grow (outward and upward). It also helps to solidify...
