Our prescription weight loss programs include appetite suppressants to help stave off hunger while raising one’s overall metabolic rate. B-12/MIC injections provide energy at the cellular level while also providing the body the ability to burn off stored fat. Hormone replacement therapy has been shown to have other beneficial effects. In a study women taking estrogen through HRT showed that estrogen positively affects the prefrontal cortex by boosting the working memory. This suggests that estrogen may play a key role in certain frontal lobe functions in women. Women using HRT after menopause have no additional weight gain compared to women who do not use HRT. Also, women who use HRT with an estrogen component show positive effects in their sex life (mainly increasing their sex drive and sexual sensitivity) but the effects are inconsistent across women. These sexual improvements may dissipate after receiving some forms of HRT for extended periods of time.
It’s not only possible to get into the best shape of your life after 40; it’s actually easier than you might expect—if you have a proven roadmap and guide who’s been there, done that and is living it. – Dr Drapkin, MD, FACP
Testosterone is a steroid hormone from the androgen group and is found in humans and other vertebrates. In humans and other mammals, testosterone is secreted primarily by the testicles of males and, to a lesser extent, the ovaries of females. Small amounts are also secreted by the adrenal glands. It is the principal male sex hormone and an anabolic steroid. A study where women going through menopause using HRT with Progestin as a major component of the therapy showed a few negative effects on hearing, which highlights the importance of choosing bioidentical progesterone instead of synthetic progestin. Not only does the Progestin decrease the functionality of many regions of the ear it also reduces the effectiveness in parts of the central nervous system used for hearing.

“When I first started my fitness journey with Douglas, my intention was simply to lose weight and feel better about myself. As my journey unfolded, he helped me rediscover my strength and become better aware of the benefits and actions necessary for a healthier lifestyle as a whole. Not only did he assist me in achieving my fitness goals, but he also encouraged me to see beyond my potential.

I was able to break through limitations I had put on myself and exceed my own expectations. Through my transformation, he helped me make significant and positive changes beyond my physical strength and appearance. I’m extremely grateful for all of the tools and positive influence Douglas has had on my life spiritually, physically, and mentally.”
