Do I need a prescription for Testosterone Therapy?
You cannot get authentic testosterone therapy without a doctor’s prescription. Any product you can by online or in any vitamin store, that claims to provide testosterone therapy, or “boost” testosterone, cannot contain any actual hormone by law.
The only way to legally obtain real testosterone therapy is from a licensed and certified testosterone clinic.
If you are between the ages of 35- 55 and feeling tired, depressed, gaining weight and facing sexual wellness issues, it is good chance that you could benefit from a doctor’s prescription for testosterone therapy.
How is Testosterone Therapy prescribed?
Testosterone therapy can be administered in skin-patches, topical gels, or supplemental injection. Our testosterone clinic will prescribe the method that works best for you, based on the results of your laboratory evaluation, and your particular needs and lifestyle. Most of our testosterone therapy patients do best with testosterone injections.
Testosterone therapy injections are given into the muscles — usually the gluteal muscles on alternating sides with each injection.
How long will I need to receive Testosterone Therapy?
As our testosterone therapy clinic prides ourselves on individualized care, treatment programs vary based on your individual needs and goals. You should start to feel the results of your testosterone therapy within the first few weeks of your program.
However, you can expect to be on testosterone replacement for at least six months to one-year for your initial monthly program.
Does Testosterone Therapy make my body make more testosterone?
No. Testosterone therapy is designed to replace, or make up for, the testosterone your body is no longer making. It does not stimulate the production of more testosterone. However, as part of your program you will be introduced to diet, fitness, behavioral, and lifestyle changes that can help keep your testosterone levels above normal.
Testosterone therapy is the safest, and most effective way to increase your testosterone levels. However, we will also show you how you can boost your natural hormone production through proper sleep and by supporting your body with the right foods and vitamins.
Exercise, particularly High Intensity Interval Training, or HIIT has been shown in clinical studies to increase your production of testosterone and growth hormone.
Despite the many ads all over the internet and in bodybuilding magazines, there is not one dietary supplement on the market that can come close to the effects of true hormone therapy.
Are there any side-effects to testosterone therapy?
As with the administration of any drug, there could be side effects to testosterone therapy. However, such side-effects have been largely exaggerated. Your doctor will make you aware of any possible side-effects. Our experts have the experience to keep any potential side-effects to your testosterone therapy to a minimum.
We provide testosterone therapy as part of a medically supervised overall health and wellness program. You will be constantly monitored during your testosterone therapy, and your testosterone prescription will be adjusted as necessary throughput the course of your testosterone therapy program.
Of course, as with any medical procedure, your individual results may vary depending on your age, gender, and general medical condition. However, you should expect a generally safe, and positive experience from your testosterone therapy.
What are the benefits of Testosterone Therapy?
The benefits of testosterone therapy for men with Low-T have been well documented. In addition there have been many recent studies that have indicated that many of the perceived risks of testosterone therapy have been unfounded. In the early days of testosterone therapy, it was reported that testosterone therapy could increase the risk of heart disease, and some cancers.
Recent studies have not only said men on testosterone therapy have no such increased risks, but that in some cases, testosterone therapy may even prevent heart disease, and lengthen lives!
In addition other benefits of testosterone therapy include:
- Increase strength and stamina
- Better sleep
- Improved sexual function
- Improved ability to build lean muscle
- Improved ability to lose fat, particularly belly fat
- Renewed energy and motivation
- Improved cognitive abilities
- Improved mood and emotional stability
How Does Testosterone therapy Work?
The older you get, the more your levels of testosterone decrease. As your level of testosterone and related hormones such as growth hormone, get lower and more out of proper balance, the symptoms we usually think of as “old age” – fatigue, weight gain, sexual issues, weakness, etc. — are the result.
Basically, testosterone therapy is a scientifically proven safe, and effective way to give you back what time and nature take away.
Testosterone therapy does that by returning your testosterone levels to what they were when you were younger, stronger and more vital. Therefore, testosterone therapy returns all of those bodily functions that “run” on testosterone, back to their “peak performance.” That results in:
- stronger muscles and bones
- less fatigue
- more energy
- more efficient burning of fat
- improvement of sexual function
Generally speaking, when we can boost your testosterone levels by re-introducing testosterone through testosterone therapy, all of those process that rely on hormones improve.
