HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
At Naples Longevity Clinic we seek to enhance the quality and quantity of life, as well as, limit the period of illness and disability towards the end of life. Prevention is the key to eliminate disease before it occurs. Lifestyle changes in diet, exercise, antioxidants, vitamin supplementation and bioidentical hormone replacement help you achieve a better quality of life.
The great appeal of bioidentical hormones is that although they are produced in a lab, they have the same molecular structure and are almost identical to hormones made by our own bodies. Therefore our bodies can metabolize them without side effects. In contrast, synthetic hormones are intentionally different from what the body produces. Drug companies cannot patent a bioidentical structure, so they invent hormones that are patentable. These synthetic hormones are quite strong, often producing side effects.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved bioidentical hormones used by the Naples Longevity Clinic for deficiencies in estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, and human growth hormone. While melatonin, DHEA, and pregnenolone are available as nutritional supplements. Please remember that bioidentical hormones are powerful substances that can offer miraculous anti-aging medical benefits when used judiciously with periodic laboratory monitoring at Naples Longevity Clinic. This is to assure safe and effective blood levels. It is very important that you adhere to periodic blood testing to help assure therapeutic optimal and safe hormone levels in your body.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is extremely safe when replacing deficient hormones in our bodies, but if taken in excessive doses it can lead to adverse effects, including illness and decreased life span. HRT is meant to replace physiologic healthy levels of hormone cellular stimulants that have failed due to aging. These therapies are recommended for adults who are deficient in naturally occurring hormone regulators and are beginning to experience age-related decline of normal healthy metabolism. We do not endorse the use of HRT for pregnant women or people younger than 30 with normal hormone levels. This warning excludes nutritional amino acid hormonal precursors, which appear as safe, as fortified foods for most individuals who do not suffer underlying medical disorders.
Through the revolutionary new concept of anti-aging we attempt to reverse heart disease, destroy cancer cells, boost brain power, feel more energetic, lose weight, restore your sex drive, speed healing, stop wrinkles and gray hair, keep eyesight sharp, reverse or eliminate menopause, reverse and eliminate andropause, decrease pain, decrease arthritis, and normalize cholesterol and blood pressure. These are just a few of the new groundbreaking concepts of the new anti-aging revolution.
