testosterone & growth hormone therapy
why hormone therapy?
As we age the balance of our major hormones shift from making us strong, lean, sexually active and happy towards being weak, fat, sexually dysfunctional and depressed.
Unfortunately, the priority of most doctors is for us ‘cope’ rather than ‘thrive’. “Health” is even defined as “the absence of disease”; not the presence of peak energy, strength, acuity and motivation most of us think of. So even though our degrading health looks like a disease, acts like a disease and progresses like a disease, most of the medical community do not believe it should be treated like a disease. Their attitude is that declining mental and physical form and function is ‘normal’ and so you just have to suffer it.
At Recomp Medical we have higher expectations of life. We do not believe that your physical and psychological health needs to follow the downward spiral of your hormones when it is readily treatable. And the questionable ‘risks’ doctors claim about maintaining optimal, normal hormone levels is still preferable to the certain destruction of our health that comes from doing nothing.
hormone therapy: unnatural risks?
Hormone therapy is not about using unnatural ‘drugs’ to force unnatural metabolism. It is about restoring your naturally occurring hormones to their optimal levels within the accepted, ‘normal’ range.
With optimal balance of testosterone, growth hormone (GH), estrogen, T3 thyroid with reverse-T3 etc, your entire body functions as it should and as it has in the past. Your immune system may be rejuvenated; your energy levels may be restored; the positive strength and endurance adaptations from your training can return; fat loss may be accelerated; sex drive and function can be improved; even stiff joints can often limber up.
getting hormone therapy
Hormone therapy starts with a comprehensive blood test covering all of your hormone, blood, organ and health markers. Our Consultants then perform a thorough interview and give you a detailed explanation of how your entire system is functioning and whether there are possibilities for ‘optimisation’ of your hormone balance.
Our doctors may then prescribe medications (including testosterone and growth hormone) as required to adjust your hormones to the optimal level within the ‘safe’ and ‘normal’ range. However, our reference is the optimal range at 30years of age. So treatment is specifically for people 30+.
Our Hormone Balancing medicine involves precise measurement, pre-planning and ongoing reassessment to ensure you are always at peak health and moving toward your specific goals.
