We’ve made this email specifically for your doctor. You should be aware that as of today there are over 80 peer-reviewed articles from institutions such as The Mayo Clinic, the New England Journal of Medicine, the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA), Pubmed, Th
Throughout years we’ve found that the lion’s share of the stigma and all the misconceptions over hormone optimization therapy is due to the disease mongering-media hype inflicted by the allopathic medical community. Since there is so much bad data and misunderstanding about what we actually do and offer, below you will find clinically backed studies about our medical therapies. In addition, please know that we believe it is crucial for you to be as educated as possible regarding these matters so that you can make an informed decision rather than subscribing to someone else’s misguided fears, even if those fears are coming from your doctor.
It is also important for you to know we only use therapeutic dosages that restore normal physiological levels which has been proven to be safe and even protective against many diseases. These levels are closely monitored by a physician with more than 12 years of experience in this specific field who is not only a specialist, but also a patient himself.
1. Testosterone causes prostate cancer
For years men have expressed concerns that using testosterone treatment or hormone replacement therapy will boost their risk of developing prostate cancer. However, the results of a new study presented at the American Urological Association in their 2016 annual meeting has shown that testosterone treatment DOES NOT increase prostate cancer risk. In fact, new research suggests such treatment may REDUCE the risk of aggressive prostate cancer.
2. Testosterone therapy may cause heart disease
3. Testosterone doesn’t help with Type 2 diabetes
4. Hormones aren’t safe
The molecules of the hormones we work with are structurally identical to the hormones your body naturally makes. Unlike synthetic hormones, bio-identical hormones fit perfectly into the hormonal receptors in your body. Found in plants, these bio-identical hormones generate the same physiologic responses as your body’s natural hormones. The result? Your body can completely utilize the bio-identical hormones without the side effects associated with synthetic hormones. On the link below we offer you the consensus position statement from PubMed Central (PMC) regarding testosterone long term safety and efficacy.
5. Testosterone leads to blood clots
6. Testosterone won’t help my depression or won’t address my poor cognition
7.Hormone replacement therapy won’t address weight issues
8. Muscle loss (sarcopenia) is not due to a hormonal decline or deficiency
9. Testosterone doesn’t help with the COVID-19 inflammatory attack
We now know that the COVID-19 virus causes what the medical field calls a “cytokine storm” in your body. An inflammatory cytokine, or pro-inflammatory cytokine, is a type of signaling molecule that is secreted from immune cells like helper T cells, macrophages, and certain other cell types that promote inflammation. Pro-inflammatory cytokines have a central role in the progression of COVID-19 infection. Several studies now show that hypogonadism (low testosterone) is associated with increased pro-inflammatory cytokines. In this context, measuring testosterone levels may be recommended at the time of an identified COVID-19 positive test. Furthermore, the use of testosterone may be considered to reduce the associated pulmonary syndrome, thus preventing progression to severe COVID-19 disease where pro-inflammatory cytokines play a major role. On the link below we offer you the consensus position statement from PubMed Central (PMC) regarding testosterone’s significant effect on the virus inflammatory response.
10. Synthetic hormones aren’t safe nor natural
11. Hormones only address symptoms when they are present
12. Hormones may cause cancer
13. Will my insurance cover my testosterone therapy
The vast majority of insurance providers do not cover advanced hormonal therapies because they don’t consider treatment unless you can prove, for example, testosterone levels under 150 pg/dl. To give you some contrast, in our industry, levels that low are considered zombie-like levels. You basically have to reach a point of no testosterone production for an insurance provider to consider covering your testosterone therapy which is ridiculous. What’s more, even if they do decide to prescribe, they’ll’ very often do it without the auxiliary medications that prevent side effects like testicular shutdown and overproduction of estrogen. However, the overall cost of treatment is less than when using insurance and for the most part we optimize your wellbeing so you can prevent going to a doctor’s office in the first place.
If your insurance happens to cover your testosterone therapy, there are a few very important details you should know about when going through your provider. First, insurance-based doctors are limited by insurance policies and their approval standards for testosterone therapy. It is unfortunate that today the person who gets to decide what your health is worth is actually the insurance company, NOT you, NOT the doctor! For example, it is very common to see patient’s get insurance-covered testosterone injections every 2-4 weeks, or daily gels/creams, which have been shown to be not only ineffective, but actually an unhealthy protocol in regards to your natural hormonal circadian rhythms.
Time and time again we witness insurance providers resorting to very outdated protocols. Providers don’t seem to understand the pharmacodynamics of the medications as well as the human pharmacokinetics response to therapy. For these reasons, your insurance based testosterone therapy will be a terrible experience.
99% of clients who have come to us after insurance approved therapy end up coming back and staying with us because they experience exactly what is being described here. As mentioned earlier, it is important to understand providers will not cover two other stimulants needed along testosterone therapy to prevent a testicular shutdown and/or estrogen side effects. There is an array of other beneficial hormones/peptide therapies we offer in addition to our testosterone therapies which are definitely out of the providers’ league. If your doctor is not testing for all these panels, you can rest assured he/she lacks experience and/or is limited by the insurance policies.
Here are the panels we test for. It has been our experience that most insurance based doctors don’t understand the purpose or synergistic association and effects of these panels:
Complete Metabolic Panel, Total & Free Testosterone, Lipid Panel, IGF-1, CBC W/Diff, Estradiol, Free T3 & Free T4, Cortisol, TSH, DHEA Sulfate, PSA, LH & FSH, Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy, Dihydrotestosteron
