Is Testosterone Replacement Therapy Right for You?

Starting around the age of 30, most men see a constant drop in testosterone levels resulting in reduced energy, motivation, muscle tone and size, leanness, as well as libido. Not only do many men see a decrease in usable testosterone, but years of being overweight combined with environmental factors such as diet and activity level cause many men to “aromatize” testosterone, essentially converting the male hormone, testosterone, into the female hormone estrogen.

By utilizing Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) we can work with you to find the right hormone balance to optimize the beneficial, youthful effects of such a balance. TRT incorporates administration of testosterone in order to assist a man’s body when it can’t sufficiently produce its own.  In addition to the testosterone itself, estrogen blockers are used to avoid excess aromatization so that you don’t experience side effects related to high estrogen, such as fatigue, insomnia, water retention, bloating, or erection issues.

For anyone concerned about future fertility, it is a concern with exogenous testosterone usage however our program incorporates the use of HCG, which in addition to its weight loss benefits also mimics a hormone that encourages your body to continue producing its own testosterone, as well as  preserve sperm count and quality. HCG has been long used in fertility treatments due to this function, you are not expected to follow our HCG rapid weight loss diet while in the TRT program.
