Testosterone Replacement–It’s Not Just For Women

hormone-men-1WELCOME to Prestige Wellness Institute. We look forward to helping you achieve optimal health and feel your best. Every day we meet men and women who wonder where their health and zest for life went. “I’m just getting older, Doc” has become all too common as an excuse for feeling crummy. Yes, we hear this from young women in their 80s, but also from young men in their 30s! No matter how old you are, age is no excuse for poor health. While some can trace the decline in their health to an event–such as menopause, andropause, childbirth, a surgery, or divorce–others discover that it creeps up on them, causing them to gradually reduce their physical activities and expectations for themselves over time.

At Prestige Wellness Institute, we help men and women understand that age is not the problem.  Rather, the loss of critical hormones, accompanied by inflammation, robs so many of the vitality they used to enjoy.  Common complaints include fatigue, insomnia, muscle weakness, lack of motivation, foggy thinking, memory loss, loss of sex drive, depression, and prolonged recovery time after exercise.  In addition, men experience difficulty with erections.  For their part, women additionally suffer from hot flashes, night sweats, moodiness, and headaches.

While these and many other symptoms bring patients to our offices, we are equally concerned about the degenerative diseases that are accelerated by hormone deficiencies:  arthritis, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s dementia, breast and prostate cancer, and more.

SottoPelle Therapy – The Ultimate Bio-identical Hormone Solution

Contrary to current thinking and practice, no human has ever developed a Prozac or Lipitor deficiency.  However, more and more of us are developing deficiencies of the hormones testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone, and experiencing the symptoms and diseases mentioned above as a result.

Unfortunately, like the driver who accidentally fills his empty gas tank with diesel fuel, many patients are prescribed drugs and other artificial hormones to address their hormone deficiencies.  By contrast, when patients present to us with deficiencies of ovarian or testicular hormones, they receive the real deal–pure hormones–not ridiculously-expensive counterfeit chemicals patented by drug companies.

Many practitioners, lured by the increasing public interest in bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), will attend a weekend seminar and begin to dabble in some form of this treatment.  At Prestige Wellness Institute, BHRT is at the core of what we do.  This is not something we believe you dabble in.  We have been providing BHRT since 2002, attend related conferences every year, and participate in lectures throughout the year.  Dr. Andrew personally trained under Gino Tutera, MD, a pioneer in hormone replacement via subcutaneous pellet implants.  Dr. Andrew is among a select group of physicians certified in the SottoPelle method and has even been recognized among the top 20 SottoPelle providers in the United States.  With qualifications like that, patients from all over Southeastern Utah, Western Colorado, and Northern New Mexico are frequently shocked to learn they need go no farther than Moab to receive this treatment.  Thankfully, too, since the opening of the Provo office, followed by expansion to our new Springville office, our patients from the rest of Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana no longer have to travel the extra three hours each way to receive this life-changing therapy.

Give us a call today to find out if we can help you, too, feel your best and be your healthiest YOU!
