The facts are in, and the conclusions are clear and inescapable: Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy (HGH) and Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) have ushered in a golden age of youthfulness and physical and mental fitness. For the first time in history, we are actually able to erect a powerful roadblock to aging…and even begin to push the clock backwards.
This is the miracle of HGH and TRT. In fact, if you do nothing else…absolutely nothing else…the results will amaze and delight you, as you witness and experience the incredible transformations that there therapies can produce.
But why stop there? There is so more you can do…so much more. And the best news is this: The Conscious Evolution lifestyle is easy to adapt. There’s much more to tell you, but before we delve into details, keep in mind the over-riding, singular philosophy of Conscious Evolution: you are in charge! You, and only you, will make the decisions that will propel your vitality, physical and mental health, youthfulness and personal improvements to unimaginable heights.
That’s right. Once you begin to make these positive changes in your life, you will see and feel the difference – the incredible, mind-boggling difference – in the quality of your life, in all areas. But first, let’s take a brief look at the big picture. Where we’ve been. Where we’re at now. And, most important, where we will be in the immediate future.
Did you know that for most of human history, the average lifespans were miniscule when compared to today’s standards? Anthropologists tell us that our cave-dwelling ancestors were for the most part toothless at 25, dead at 35.
In fact, as recently as 1900, the average male lifespan in America was 47 years
Read that number again, and let it sink in. In the overall scheme of things, 1900 was a mere nanosecond in the past. However, thanks to breakthrough’s in medicine, hygiene and nutrition, the 20th century witnessed an explosion in life expectancy. Living until the late 70′s and 80′s was the expected norm, not the exception that had previously been the case.
However, in the past few decades, we are witnessing a reversal in this longevity trend. Not only are we not living longer…we are wasting an increasing number of years in poor health. In fact, when compared to 34 other developed nations, Americans have dropped from #20 in 1990 to #27 in 2010. This is in spite of the fact that per-capita health care spending in the United States is far higher than any other country, and we lead the world in medical research.
So, what’s the problem? Why is this so?
There is no one direct cause of the pathetic state of health for all-too-many Americans. Poor dietary choices, physical inactivity, chronic sleep deprivation, dehydration and stress all add up to take a terrible toll on our health. However, on second thought, perhaps it all boils down to one cause after all:
The failure to live a Conscious Evolution Lifestyle
Think about it. Every one of the problems listed are a result of bad decision making when it comes to lifestyle choices…every last one of them. At first glance, this may seem depressing. However, with deeper reflection, it is actually encouraging, since it proves what was mentioned earlier. The philosophy of Conscious Evolution is that you are in charge…for better or worse. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the proven, scientific principals of Conscious Living…principals that you can begin to put to use immediately.
And it begins with the science of nutrition
No question about it. More and more people are concerned about their food choices. This includes not only being more concerned about what they eat, but also eating organic and taking supplements as insurance against any nutritional deficiencies.
For years, the average American diet has meant that we are digging our graves with our forks, knives and spoons. However, many folks are finally waking up to the fact that you are what you eat!
Here’s a loaded question. Suppose you have just bought a brand-new, expensive luxury car. As you’re driving around, showing off your prize possession, the fuel light comes on. By coincidence, you’re at an intersection with two service stations. One of them is known for selling a lesser quality gas and oil. In fact, there is even a sign up in front of the station: “Cheap gas! Cheap Oil!” The other sells the high quality fuel that is recommended for your car.
In the past, maybe you did cut corners. And maybe that’s the reason you needed a new car. Seriously, why would you even consider putting cheap, second-rate, low quality gas and oil in your shiny, brand-new possession? It’s a good bet that you wouldn’t think twice about paying a bit more for higher quality, right?
So why in the world would you cut corners on a far more precious possession? Remember, you can buy a new car. But when it comes to your health, it’s not as easy as going to the new body store. If you wouldn’t try to save a few pennies on your new car, why try to save a few pennies on your body?
More and more people are becoming concerned about their food choices, and realize what they eat does make a difference, both in how they look and feel, and in the quality and length of their lives. At least, that’s what they say. But just take a stroll around your local malls and stores for evidence of the seemingly ever-increasing obesity epidemic that continues to plague the U.S.
This is in spite of the fact that there has never been more information available concerning what we should eat, as well as what we should avoid. To put it bluntly, we’re still not getting it. There are two main reasons for this.
First, convenience. More and more people are trying to do more and more in less and less time. This results in increased consumption of fast foods, processed and canned foods, and whatever other swill saves time. Many people are unwittingly not even thinking about what they are shoveling into their bodies.
Second, confusion. Once folks decide to change their eating habits for the better, they are bombarded day and night by admonishments…low fat…low carbs…make sure you eat this…don’t eat that. It’s enough to make anyone scream: “Help! What should I really be eating?”
No question about it. There has never been more confusion about what we should eat. The ever-increasing number of “food guru’s” continue to add to the confusion factor with a maze of conflicting ideas. Avoid carbs…low fat is the only safe way to eat…some fats are good…try vegetarian…some carbs are good…dairy is bad…and on and on. What’s worse, what was “in” yesterday is “out” today.
And what about the food industry? Are genetically modified foods safe? According to the industry, there’s nothing to worry about. But what about the additives in our foods that require a dictionary and a degree in chemistry to understand when reading the labels of ingredients? How can we be sure they are safe?
What about your physician? With so much emphasis on surgery, the latest miracle prescription drugs and other medical findings, it is easy for doctor’s to overlook the importance of correct nutrition. Most doctor’s are not nearly as concerned about nutrition as they are about other medical topics and procedures. To be fair, staying abreast of new medical treatments, along with seeing dozens of patients each day is a full-time job. As a consequence, many hard-pressed-for-time physicians overlook the healing powers of food.
Need some more convincing about the importance of food? Here are a few numbers to think about: according to Bottom Line’s Daily Health News, a mere century ago the odds of dying from heart disease were 1 in 24…now they have surged to 1 in 7. Cancer? A century ago, the odds of dying from this killer were 1 in 49…now they have jumped to 1 in 7.
One caveat: our longer lifespans do play a role in these numbers. But regardless, as hard as it is to believe, there appears to be a disturbing trend: we are actually going backwards in the critical, life-and-death struggle against these terrible afflictions. Faced with these numbers, it is impossible for anyone to ignore the role of nutrition in our health and well-being.
So, what to do? Is there any way to cut through this fog of confusion and allow you to finally understand what is good, and what is not…in plain English?
Fortunately, the answer is a resounding “YES”. A huge, vital part of the Conscious Evolution Lifestyle is you are what you eat. With that in mind, let’s look at a few simple guidelines that you can put to use…not years from now, but now.
- Be tough about simple sugars, bad carbs, bad fats, processed foods and excess sodium. None ofthis stuff is found in nature. This goes double for the “super no-no’s(candybars,donuts,sodas,cakes,potato chips). Even world-class athletes will break down on rare occasions, and have cheat days. Just keep those days to a bare minimum. Don’t forget that sugar is a drug, and we can easily become addicted to it. Stay away from fast food chains, boxed or frozen dinners, canned soup, processed meats and cheeses and ready made sandwiches. Once again, be tough!
- Load up on fresh fruits and vegetables. For all-around health, energy and disease-fighting, the nutritionfound in fresh fruits and vegetables can’t be beat. However, don’t entirely rule out frozen produce, which may be even more nutritious than some fresh produce. Why? Because frozen fruits and vegetables are frozen at their peak ripeness, when they are densely nutrient-loaded. While freezing produce may cause a slight loss of vitamins, the process protects what is left. Fresh produce may be shipped for long distances, depending upon the season – and thus lose much of their nutritive value. The take-away? Buy your produce fresh when in season, and frozen in the off-season. Either way, you can’t go wrong.
- Don’t forget the importance of protein: lean meats and other sources of protein are vital to your weight-control and strength building.
- Don’t neglect the power of juicing. According to ancient Chinese Taoist thought, by taking fruits and vegetables in the form of raw juice, the vitamins, minerals and enzymes they contain go to work immediately upon entering the stomach, rather than hours later. These juices effectively neutralize excessive acidity in the stomach and zap the condition known as acidosis, which can be a serious, life-threatening condition. Fresh fruit and vegetable juice helps to keep our all-important pH level in balance. This level measures the ratio of acid to alkaline in our blood. Due to the typical American diet, consisting of excess meat, fat, sugar, alcohol and starch, our bodies tend to be acidic. Juicing adds a layer of protection from this condition. But this does not mean stop eating your vegetables and fruits. They are needed for the fibrous bulk that keeps us healthy. Just add juicing your raw fruits and vegetables to the mix.
- A few more things about the importance of juicing. If you haven’t been eating correctly, your body may be loaded with toxic junk. Nothing, absolutely nothing, works faster than juicing when it comes to detoxifying your system. Most people say that it begins to go to work immediately! It makes fruits and vegetables taste great. Also, as an added benefit, juicing can slash your cravings for the wrong kinds of food. Finally, there is the convenience factor. Modern, high-speed juicers have eliminated the need for canned, frozen juices that are packed with artificial flavors and enough preservatives to last for years. No more of that. You can now “roll your own”. Your body will thank you.
- A quicker method of juicing is to use powders, or buy the actual vegetable juice. Barley Green, Beet Juice Powder and Raw Carrot Juice are highly recommended.
- Stay adequately hydrated. This is so important that we have much more to say about it shortly. Stay tuned.
- Be aware of portion size. Did you know that each person in the United States wolfs down over 500 more calories in a day than they did a scant 40 years ago? It takes 2 hours of walking to burn those calories off – and most of us simply do not need extra calories. A little trickery is helpful here. Trick your eyes by using smaller plates as a way of making your meal look bigger.
- Minimize dairy. If you do consume dairy, look for eggs and milk from free-range chickens and grass fed cows. You are not just what you eat; you are also what the animals that are your food source consume. As with humans, the food that animals consume is directly related to the quality of the eggs and milk they produce. Mass-produced, crowded, force-fed animals result in inferior dairy products. And if that weren’t enough, never forget the effects of pasteurization. Pasteurization destroys milks natural enzymes and alters its delicate proteins. Raw milk contains the active enzymes lactase and lipase, which permit raw milk to digest with little stress on the stomach. To put it bluntly, pasteurization takes the life out of milk…but since it helps the bottom line of the dairy industry, raw milk is illegal in many states, and therefore hard to come by. Seriously consider restricting milk unless you can obtain certified raw milk.
- Instead of the typical “three squares”, spread things out, and strive to eat 5 or 6 smaller meals each day. This will prevent hunger and allow your system to process the nutrients you take in far more efficiently.
- Consume most of your calories early in the day (breakfast and lunch). Try to avoid a heavy dinner, and beware of eating in the evening…this can have a disruptive effect on your Human Growth Hormone release cycle.
- Drink Green Tea. Green tea is widely known for many of its health benefits. But not many are awarethat it has been shown to increase growth hormone. According to a study conducted by the Alternative Medicine Review, Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) – the active ingredient in green tea – has a boosting effect on growth hormone levels. Participants in the study were put on a calorie-restricted diet. Then, half of them were given a green tea product, and the other half received a placebo for 90 days. The results? The participants who received the green tea product for 90 days increased their growth hormone levels by more than 320%! They also pumped up their insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) by 24%, compared to the 20% and 15% rates for the placebo group. The green tea group also lost almost three times more weight than the control group. This didn’t happen overnight. The results were not conclusive until near the end of the 90 day study; at 45 days, not much change was apparent. So be patient, and stick with it.
- Consider organic produce, grass-fed beef and free-range chicken. These may cost a bit more, but organic produce is not loaded with dangerous pesticides. Grass-fed cattle and free-range chickens are not loaded with steroids, and are allowed to develop in a far more natural manner than the typical over-the-counter meats. Also, after you consider the problems with our food supply, they are well worth the extra cost. Here’s why: grass-fed beef is leaner, lower in omega 6 fats that have been linked to heart disease, higher in healthy omega 3 fats and linoleic acids…and it tastes better! Free-range chicken contains more protein than the meat coming from the assembly lines of “Big Agra”, (the giant food companies). Therefore, make free-range chicken your first choice.
- Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey. Vinegar, when combined with honey, can supply many different nutrients. As apple juice ferments, it produces a liquid laced with newly created enzymes, while retaining tiny particles of apples with their supply of vitamins and minerals. Often, the concentrated power of honey is included in vinegar tonics. The rich, natural sweetness of honey makes a great combination with vinegars tartness. Together, these two nutritional powerhouses provide a combination of health-promoting nutrients. Mixing these two with water is a great way to start your day.
- Aloe Vera Juice. Aloe Vera juice can aid in digestion, eliminate toxins, strengthen the immune system, and speed up weight-loss. Just remember to not consume aloe vera that is not made for internal use.
Let’s take a more in-depth look at these general guidelines.
Protein. Protein is important, since it gives us the amino acids we need to build muscles, repair injuries and boost our immune system. Protein is also found all through our bodies: organs, hair, skin, tissues and cells. There are two kinds of protein: complete (lean beef, tuna, eggs, chicken breast and milk) and incomplete (legumes, beans, seeds and yogurt). Strive for the complete kind as much as possible. If you are eating incomplete protein sources, look to combine different types for the most benefit.
For example, for grains and legumes, combine black beans and brown rice; pasta and peas; whole wheat or rye bread and peanut butter; bean soup and whole-grain crackers; lentils and almonds. These combinations will deliver sufficient amounts of the amino acids you need.
Protein plays a huge role in any exercise routine, since it is the most important nutrient for muscle growth and increasing strength. For every pencil-necked research scientist that states they can prove “on paper” that protein does not build muscle, there are dozens of large power-lifters and bodybuilders that say it does. Remember this simple formula: protein = more muscle growth and strength = more growth hormone release. How much protein is needed? As a rule, strive for 30% to 40% of your overall daily caloric intake.
Good Fats. In the latest dietary recommendations by many so-called “experts”, fats have taken a beating. Pardon the pun, but this is NUTS! Fats are an essential part of a well-balanced diet. In fact, we can’t survive without them. They regulate our body temperature, keep our skin glowing, our hair shiny, and give us energy. The important thing here is that there are two kinds of fats: good and bad. Examples of good fats are olive oil, almonds, walnuts, fish and omega-3 rich fish oil. These are called unsaturated fats, and are what we need to eat. Saturated fats are found in animal products (ice cream, whole milk, butter and cheese). They have the potential to raise cholesterol, and should be limited.
Trans Fats are the worst kinds of fats. They don’t occur in nature, but when foods are fried, they can appear and raise our LDL cholesterol levels (the bad kind of cholesterol). Try to minimize margarine, packaged, frozen and fast foods, baked goodies like cookies and chips, and salad dressings. Look for the word hydrogenated in the label…then avoid it, since this means trans fat. In the real world, it is virtually impossible to totally eliminate trans fats. But do everything you can to cut them out.
Carbohydrates. In the “diet wars”, proponents of a high-protein, high-fat, low-carbohydrate eating plan have made a good case for the harmful effects of excessive carbohydrate consumption. But, as anyone who has tried this type of eating plan will testify to, eliminating almost all carbs works…for awhile. But it is indeed rare to find someone who has the ability to stay on this plan for long.
What the no-carb crowd neglects to mention is this: as with fats, there are different kinds of carbs…simple and complex. The difference between the two is simple (again, pun intended) and easy to remember:
Simple Carbs. Examples of simple carbs are white bread, sodas, white rice, cakes, pies, syrups and candy. Will these give you quick energy? Yes…but the energy jolt won’t last. The reason is that they are broken down quickly by the body, which causes your blood sugar to spike, making you “crash and burn”. Worse, you will probably be hungry soon after eating them.
Complex Carbs. These are naturally occurring, and are found in fiber-loaded foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, oatmeal, wheat, brown rice, sweet potatoes and legumes. The body breaks down complex carbs at a much slower rate than simple carbs. As a result, glucose is released more slowly than with simple carbs. This means that complex carbs give us longer-lasting energy and do not spike our blood sugar levels. They also fuel our nervous and muscular systems. Complex carbs will fuel us through the most grueling workouts, so please don’t cut them out. But when it comes to simple carbs, try cut them way down. Better still, strive to cut them out completely.
Complex carbs like fresh fruits and vegetables are loaded with the life-preserving vitamins, minerals and fibers that we need for balanced nutrition. The benefits of fresh fruits and vegetables are one of the few areas that virtually everyone agrees on. There are a good many varieties of each. Try them all, and go with what you enjoy. Load up on every brightly colored option available, since brightly colored fruits and vegetables are densely packed with anti-oxidants and other nutrients. Blue, purple, orange, red, yellow and green should give you a large spectrum of produce to have fun trying.
To further drive this point home, consider this. When the food researchers initially recommended that we lower our intake of fat and increase our consumption of carbs, they meant leafy green vegetables, whole grains, fruits and beans. So, what did the average person do? They piled tons of fried potatoes, white rice and pasta on their plates. Their ever-expanding waistlines provided the answer to the question of “How did that work out for you?”
Whole grains are unrefined, provide us with useable energy, fight disease and deliver a wide array of vitamins, minerals and fiber. They also are filling, and therefore helpful in controlling our desire for the wrong kinds of foods. Don’t forget oatmeal, whole-wheat or rye bread, brown rice and popcorn.
Dairy. As mentioned earlier, dairy products should not be mindlessly consumed. On the other hand, dairy can play a beneficial role in our good health efforts. Dairy foods are rich in calcium, phosphorus, Vitamin D, potassium, protein and magnesium. The key things to remember is to look for organic dairy. If that’s not possible, at least look for low fat options in milk, cheese, cottage cheese, yogurt and butter.
Fad Diets. There is one quick, simple and easy answer to the question of fad diets: AVOID THEM AT ALL COSTS! Many of the rigid diet recommendations and plans have contributed some useful ideas to the nutrition puzzle. But the problems of the “my-way-or-the-highway” attitude of every fad diet approach highlights their weaknesses. For example, the low-carb folks are to be commended for correctly pointing out the dangers of simple carbs. The low-fat people are to be similarly saluted for their emphasis on the dangers of fat.
However, they both throw out the baby with the bathwater. As mentioned above, complex carbs and unsaturated fats both play beneficial roles in our search for optimal health. And some fad diets are outright dangerous to your health…as well as being too complicated and restrictive for the average person to stay with. By following the guidelines above, and applying common sense, you can harness the power of food in a safe, long-lasting manner.
- Eat five or six small meals each day, restricting portions actively
- Breakfast needs to be the biggest meal each day, and vitamins should be consumed at this time
- Have a snack between lunch and breakfast
- Lunch needs to be the second largest daily meal
- Have another snack between dinner and lunch.
- Dinner needs to be the day’s smallest meal
- Drink water all day every day (see hydration)
Make sure you go to bed without eating. Your highest levels of Human Growth Hormone Production occur when you have a healthy eight hour sleep cycle. Eating late disrupts this cycle.

This is a list to study and be aware of. It is nearly impossible to avoid all acidic foods, nor is it necessary. The key is balance. The goal is to add more alkaline foods, and eat fewer acidic foods.
Putting It All Into Action: A Few Helpful Ideas:
1. Write…and write some more. Write out a detailed food plan, and make it as precise as possible. This will bring the power of your subconscious mind into the equation, and increase your self-discipline many times over. In fact, you may even want to take a day and write down everything you eat or drink in a 24-hour period…everything! Remember, it all adds up. The milk, cream and sugar you pour into your coffee or tea, the extra beer you have with dinner, and the late night snack. You may be surprised. Last, write down an affirmation before going to bed. This can be anything that will help you stay on your program. “I followed my nutrition plan today, and I will follow it tomorrow” is just an example. Personalize whatever phrases or motivational sayings that will work for you.
2. Don’t Skip Breakfast. This gets the day going right, and gives us the energy boost we need. Also, when it comes to our intake of calories, the earlier, the better.
3. Slow It Down. Scientists tell us that it takes about 20 minutes for the stomach to signal the brain that we are full. Eating slower will both allow us to eat less, and give our overworked stomachs some well-deserved help in digesting our food, since we are taking the time to chew more thoroughly.
4. No Evening Eating. Why go to bed on a full stomach? Think about it. The food we eat at bedtime has a much slower rate of digestion, and therefore will turn to fat easier than what we ate earlier.
5. Learn More About Food Preparation. Steaming, juicing, blending, grilling, baked, roasted, stir-
fried, saute: There are so many options for food preparation. Who ever said that eating healthy has to be drab, bland and boring? It ain’t true. Study recipes and you’ll see why.
6. Prepare a Shopping List. This will keep you focused, reduce impulse buying and make it easier to make the right choices when temptation is staring directly at you.
7. Eat Only When You’re Hungry. Learn from the family pet. You don’t have to force anything down just because the clock strikes a certain hour. Listen to your body. It’s really that simple.
8. Forget About The Old Adage: “Clean Your Plate.” This was good advice from mom when you were a growing child. But for most of us, that was a long time ago. When you feel full, just remember that there is no law against saving what’s left for another time.
9. Read Labels. Anything that ends in “…ose” is probably sugar. A general rule here is that the more ingredients, the worse the product is to eat. Also, the ingredients are listed in the amounts that they are in the product. For example, the first listed ingredient is in the product more than the last one. If sugar is listed first, beware.
10. Listen To Your Body. This may be the most important rule to remember. If you feel guilty about eating something, that is telling you something. Conversely, if you are having a hard time eating something that you know is healthy, them don’t! There are many healthy alternatives. Learn them.
Why supplements are needed…the grim reality is that eating right is not enough
How could that be? After all, we are what we eat, right? Yes – and that’s the problem. Here’s why. Did you know…
- The way we eat has changed more in the past 50 years than in the previous 10,000 years
- If you took a stroll through the aisles of today’s supermarkets, you could count up to 47,000 products – or more
- A great many of these products turn out to be artificial byproducts of just one acidic food…corn. Quick quiz: Which of the following contains ingredients derived from corn? (a) Kellogg’s Corn Flakes; (b) Pepsi; (c) Smucker’s jam; (d) a McDonald’s Big Mac; or (e) Wonder Bread. Answer: all of them. And then some.
- The American food supply, in fact, is drowning in corn. Last year, U.S. farmers reaped 13 billion bushels of the yellow stuff—the largest corn harvest in American history. Such bumper crops, made possible in part by massive federal subsidies to corn farmers, help keep corn prices—and food prices in general—down, but health experts worry that the glut of corn is harming our health. And it is…since corn is acidic, it wrecks havoc on the all-important pH level of our acid/alkaline balance
- If that weren’t bad enough, many of the most important foods in our diet have been genetically engineered – and the food industry is moving mountains to pass laws that will not require them to label these foods as “Frankenfoods”.
- In their mad scramble for profits, the food industry has created a food supply system that is dangerously vulnerable to bacterial contamination. Proof? Last year, 73,000 Americans got sick from the deadly E. coli
- Don’t forget the dangers of cloning. Last year the food industry obtained permission from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to put meat from cloned animals on the shelves of your local markets without labeling them!
- Due to soil depletion and drugged livestock, our food is far less nutritious today than 50 years ago. In fact, much of food is nutritionally worthless – and can easily make you sick.
- Our Paleolithic ancestors were free of the crippling diseases that plague modern folks. But their food and game was produced from soils that were much richer in vitamins, minerals and nutrients than today’s soil.
This is why supplements are so important
However, hopefully you get the point. The food you eat is by far the best way to get the nutrition you need. But the above mentioned issues make this task at best challenging. Therefore, supplements are not an option. Here are our supplement recommendations for the Conscious Evolution Lifestyle:
- A daily multivitamin. Consider this your nutritional insurance policy. Due to soil depletion, it has become more difficult to obtain all of our vitamins and minerals from our food alone. Buy a product that is balanced, not overloaded with some nutrients and underweight on others. The key is to experiment by trying a few different varieties, and let your body tell you what is working best.
- Vitamins B complex and C. These are recommended in addition to your multivitamin. Vitamins B & C are water soluble, so don’t be too concerned about taking too high a dose. We suggest you start small to discover your tolerance.
- Vitamin E is fat soluble, and is therefore best absorbed when taken with a meal containing some healthy fat. When buying Vitamin E, always look for a brand that contains mixed tocopherols (including gamma-tocopherol), the Vitamin E with the best cancer-fighting properties. Avoid the form of Vitamin E called “dl-alpha.”. This form is synthetic, and lacks the vitamin’s seven other compounds: three tocopherols (gamma, beta and delta) and four tocotrienols. Some companies love to cut cost – at your expense. Don’t fall for it.
- Vitamin D. There are two main forms of Vitamin D: Vitamin D2 (Ergocalciferol) and Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) . D2 is synthetic, and is found in fortified milk and cereals. The trouble with this form is that it is not the same as the Vitamin D that comes from the sun. In addition, it has a shorter life span. D3 is far more potent, and goes to work immediately, fighting a plethora of diseases: cancer, hypertension, diabetes, osteoporosis,and many more. In addition, Vitamin D3 acts as a powerful immune system strengthener. Get D3, and avoid D2. Once again, don’t fall for the cost-cutting company’s sleight-of-hand.
- Fish Oil. From battling depression to protecting your heart and easing the pain of your joints, omega 3 fish oil is an all-star. Add it to your starting line-up.
- Melatonin. In addition to helping you fall into a deep, restorative sleep, this miracle hormone also promotes the release of growth hormone, and is a very powerful anti-oxidant. Melatonin is produced and secreted by the pituitary gland, and as with so many things, it’s production declines with age. Restoring it to youthful levels has resulted in many benefits.
- Ribose, Magnesium, CoQ10 and L-carnitine. If you are looking to preserve the health of your heart – the most important muscle in your body – or if you are recovering from heart problems, then put this winning team to work. They work synergistically to boost your heart health…control your blood pressure…skyrocket your energy levels…and regain your youthfulness. As with vitamins, there are two different kinds of CoQ10: ubiquinone and ubiquinol. Animal and human studies clearly show that ubiquinol is much better absorbed than ubiquinone. Look for this form when buying CoQ10.
- Astaxanthin. This may be the most potent and effective antioxidant available. Reduced inflammation, improved joint health, skin condition and eye health have all been reported. When it comes down to destroying free radicals (causes of aging), astaxanthin is 550 times stronger than vitamin E, and 6,000 times stronger than vitamin C! WOW! Jump on this bandwagon NOW.
- Phosphatidylserine (PS). Many drug-free body-builders have experienced muscle growth and increased strength with phosphatidylserine (PS). This is due to the ability of PS to block the release of cortisol…a muscle-melting, testosterone-destroying, stress-producing hormone. PS blocks the release of cortisol in a safe and natural manner. Users have reported more testosterone levels, a laser-like mental focus and increased fat loss with PS.
- Resveratrol and Pterostilbene. Resveratrol became somewhat of a household word in the late 1990′s when it was shown to be the reason that the French can drink wine daily, eat tons of rich, artery-clogging foods, and still have better cardiovascular health than most Americans. In fact, studies have shown that it may activate the “longevity gene.” One reason may be that resveratrol mimics the effects of calorie restriction. A dramatic reduction in caloric intake has knocked-out the activity of many genes that promote cancer. Since living on a starvation diet is something most of us are not lining up for, resveratrol have seen an explosion in popularity. Pterostilbene is closely related to resveratrol, and it produces beneficial effects on gene expression in ways that enhance resveratrol. This is what makes this combination so incredibly effective.
- Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA). Yet another devastating weapon in the war against aging and it’s agents: free radicals. Free radicals are constantly on the attack in our body, destroying our tissues and weakening our organs and cells. Free radicals respect no boundaries. They attack everywhere in our bodies, from our brains, livers, hearts and nervous systems. What makes ALA so special is this: unlike vitamin C, which is not lipid soluble, and can’t penetrate the lipid walls of cell membranes, and unlike vitamin E, which is not very water-soluble, ALA is both! This means that it can go on the offensive against free radicals…anytime, anywhere.
- DHEA. (dehydroepiandrosterone). This hormone is produced by the adrenal gland, and as with so many hormones, it begins to decline around age 30. Studies have shown that the level of DHEA in the body is an excellent predictor of age related afflictions such as cancer, diabetes, a weakened immune system, and atherosclerosis (hardening and clogging of the arteries). Some research even supports the claim that it can extend human lifespan.
- Glutathione. This little-known amino acid is often referred to as “the master antioxidant” for the effect it has on all the other antioxidants. Glutathione has the amazing ability to destroy free radicals and poisons like heavy metals and mercury out of your body. When we’re young, our bodies make enough of it to smash toxins before they can do damage. But if you are stressed, older or otherwise weakened due to illness, your levels of glutathione are low…usually too low to do the job that glutathione is made to do: grab mercury, heavy metals, other poisons and toxins by the neck…and show them the exit door. The bad news: some studies have shown that supplementation with pills or tablets is useless, since most of it doesn’t make it past the stomach. But don’t despair. The most effective way to put this powerhouse anti-aging weapon to work for you is to apply glutathione cream to the skin, in the direct vicinity of the liver ( on the lower right side of the torso, just below the right ribcage). It is so important to increase your glutathione levels. Your liver needs all the help it can get in the life-and-death ongoing struggle against free radicals, mercury and toxins. Give it a fighting chance to win.
- Telomerase. We may have saved the best for last. Telomerase is the enzyme that helps to restore the biological clocks at the ends of your DNA called telemeres. Without getting too scientific, here’s how this works: every time your cells divide, your telemeres shorten. Eventually, this causes your cells to stop dividing. The result? DEATH! Another analogy is the plastic ends of your shoelaces. They protect your shoestrings, and prevent them from fraying and falling apart. When they are worn out, trouble. The take-away? We must slow down the loss of telemeres to slow aging. Companies are in a mad scramble to produce a high-quality, yet affordable supplement to provide this desperately needed protection. We will keep you updated on all developments along those lines.
This is far from a comprehensive list of supplements. If you have specific conditions, other supplements can be helpful. For example, Milk Thistle, Saffron, Licorice Root, Astragalus Root and N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) can protect the liver. Saw Palmetto, Stinging Nettle, Lycopene, Pygeum Africanum, Beta-Sitosterol, Zinc and Pumpkin Seed are great for the prostate.
The Chinese herb Dong Quai can provide relief from painful menstrual cramps, and if you have painful joints, Hyaluronic acid, Glucosamine, MSM, Chondroitin and Tart Cherry can be a blessing. And, if you’re having trouble falling and staying asleep,Valerian Root and Tryptophan can be the answers you’ve been looking for, especially when combined with melatonin.
The take-away is this: Supplements will not replace good eating habits, and what is on your plate is the best way to take in your nutrients. But supplements can plug gaps…and multiply the effects of HGH and TRT many times over. Things evolve quickly in the field of supplements, and it is hard to keep up with all of the changes. That’s where we come in. It is our job to keep you abreast of all new supplemental developments…and we will.
Why you must avoid dehydration…at all costs
No question about it: drinking an adequate amount of water is absolutely essential to maintaining good health. The human body is approximately 65-70% water, and water is present in virtually every cell and tissue in the body. Remember this simple rule: without water, life is impossible.
Water is the key to enabling the body to maintain homeostasis – internal stability and balance. The body uses water to maintain correct temperature, remove wastes and lubricate joints. The average person loses approximately 2.5% of water per day through urination, sweat, and even breathing. We lose water much faster when the weather is hot, when exercising, or if we have a fever.
Our cells are made up of water, and require an adequate supply of water to function properly. Dehydration has bad effects on our vital organs like the heart, brain, kidneys, liver – even our skin.
Several studies have shown a link between water intake level and coronary heart disease. The most important factor here is Blood Viscosity, which is a measure of the thickness of blood. To keep things simple, the thinner the blood, the easier it flows through the body. Thick blood can cause clots in the veins, which can force the heart to work harder to pump the blood. Over time, this can dramatically increase the chances of heart problems.
Also, water enables proper physiological function in several ways, as well as helping these bodily processes:
- Elimination of waste products (via urination)
- Strengthening the immune system
- Lubricating the joints
- Proper liver and kidney function
- Proper functioning of the lymphatic system
- Improved muscle tone
- Production of hormones and neurotransmitters
- Regulation of body temperature (via perspiration)
- Improved skin tone
In addition to the above, water has been shown to improve the condition of many diseases and afflictions that commonly affect so many of us. Since these facts have been known and scientifically proven, they have been publicized by nutritionists, physicians, personal trainers and just about everyone else involved in health and fitness. In short, the health benefits of drinking water no longer need to be debated.
The best way to get into the habit of drinking more water is to gradually start substituting water for your other favorite beverages. A bit of lemon helps to add a bit of flavor to your water if desired. No matter how you do it, just do it! Make drinking more water a top priority.
Another surprise benefit of water
It has been a long-time and popular dieting secret: Drinking more water helps you lose weight. But is it really true?
Think about it: Drinking more water is not mission impossible. You don’t need to have iron willpower, nor do you have to drastically cut back on calories or spend hours a day in vigorous, grueling exercise. So why aren’t more people doing it?
Because Americans gorge themselves on way too many useless, empty calories in the form of sodas and other sugar-filled drinks. Just the simple, easy act of keeping a bottle of water with you at all times will help you take in far less soda, juice or energy drinks…or better still, cut them out completely. This one simple change can result in drastically slicing your calories intake – and shredding dozens of pounds of ugly, unwanted, disease-causing fat.
It’s a fact that most people are dehydrated, which causes many health problems, including obesity. Dehydration causes the body to retain excess water as a protective measure. This is a direct cause of weight gain. If that weren’t bad enough, dehydration lowers the body’s metabolism, causing even more weight gain.
More bad news: dehydration causes fatigue, which makes exercise even more difficult. Finally, many folks have lost their sense of thirst due to chronic dehydration, and mistake thirst for false hunger. This is still another factor in gaining weight. Reaching for a bottle of water will greatly reduce hunger pangs.
Here are some other reasons to add water to your weight-loss program:
- A side effect of burning calories is a release of toxins. Water plays a vital role is flushing toxins out of your body
- Dehydration causes blood to become thicker, which makes it less efficient in supplying oxygen to your muscles. This causes fatigue, making it harder to exercise and speed up fat loss
- Staying properly hydrated will help to maintain muscle tone and make sure that your weight loss is fat, rather then muscle tissue.
- Most weight loss diets are heavily loaded with fiber. Water will make sure your digestive system will easily handle the added fiber workload.
Science agrees: Drinking more water = weight loss
After years of every weight-loss idea, from low-fat to zero-carbs (and just about every diet in between) arguing over which approach is best, they all agreed on one thing: “drink more water.” Now science has weighed in…and agrees that water really does help you lose weight.
Researchers in Germany report that water consumption increases the rate at which people burn calories. Doctors at Berlin’s Franz-Volhard Clinical Research Center tracked energy expenditures among seven men and seven women after drinking 17 ounces of water. The researchers found that the subjects’ metabolic rates (the rate at which calories are burned) increased by 30% for both men and women.
Here is the exciting thing to remember from this study: the researchers estimated that over the course of a year, a person who increases his water consumption by 1.5 liters a day would burn an extra 17,400 calories, resulting in a weight-loss of five pounds. They noted that up to 40% of the increase in calorie burning is caused by the body’s attempt to heat the ingested water.
In another study conducted at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia, researchers found thatobesedieters who drank two cups of water before each meal lost five pounds more than a group of dieters who didn’t increase their water intake.
Water can even help you make good food choices
Try this simple test: grab a bottle of soda, a can of fruit punch, then add a bottle of water. Now ask yourself this question: “Which one of these is the healthiest choice?”
The answer is in the “DUH” category: water wins, hands down – and for more reasons than you might think. We know that water is free of sugar, calories and the artificial garbage found in soda and fruit punch.
But water has another huge advantage
Drinking water will encourage you to choose healthier foods…and eat more of them! Researchers at the University of Oregon and Michigan State University conducted two studies examining the role of drinks on food choices.
In the first study, subjects reported that they desired soda with salty, high-calories foods like pizza or chips far more than with raw or cooked vegetables. They also said that water, while not always their first choice, went quite well with most foods.
The second study suggested that water doesn’t only encourage you to choose healthier foods – it actually may help you eat more of those healthy foods. Children aged three to five in the experiment ate approximately one-third more red peppers or carrots when they were served water, as opposed to a sweetened drink like fruit punch.
Why these results make perfect sense
Think about this. Most of us form an idea about what foods and drinks “go together” the first time we eat a bag of chips with soda, or eat fresh fruit with water. These become habits that result in automatic choices, and for good reason. Broccoli and soda seems far less appetizing than broccoli and water.
Also, don’t forget the role our taste buds play. Soda is sweet and powerful, enough to overwhelm our sense of smell and taste. If we are going to eat something with it, it makes sense to choose another powerful, sugary, salty or fatty food…foods that are savory and rich, and won’t be overpowered by the soda.
But when you choose water, you can appreciate…really appreciate the subtle sweetness of fresh fruit, the freshness of a piece of meat, and the raw wholesomeness of fresh vegetables. Certain foods and drinks make great combinations, and water works with all of them.
Let water help you kick the soda habit…forever
As you can imagine from what we have discussed, soda and other sweet drinks can wreck havoc with your health and weight-loss goals. Not only are they devoid of nutrients, but they actually cause us to crave junk foods.
But don’t lose hope. In this case, these bad habits are not your fault – and the good news is this: they can be changed, easier than you could ever imagine, by simply substituting water for sweet drinks.
To sum it up, remember this: In addition to the clear, refreshing taste of water, and all of the other incredibly powerful, life-changing health benefits that water delivers (more energy, healthier organs, less joint pain, better digestion), we can add another reason to enjoy water: Healthier eating habits!
The All-important pH Balance
The measure of acidity or alkaline in the body is potential hydrogen, or pH, which is expressed in a number between 0 and 14, and is usually measured through blood testing. A pH of 7 is neutral, a pH between 7 and 14 is alkaline, and a pH below 7 is acidic.
For optimum health, the body’s blood chemistry needs to be slightly alkaline, with a pH level ideally between 7.38 and 7.42. When the pH level strays too far above or below this level, disease and illness are likely to follow.
It is possible to become too alkaline (known as alkalosis). However, due to the average American diet, a condition called acidosis (too much acid) is far more common. Acidosis is a serious medical condition, with symptoms such as headache, confusion, coma, shortness of breath, increased heart rate, nausea, seizures, muscular weakness, and many more problems.
The stomach has a normal pH measure of approximately 4.0. Consuming high pH alkaline food causes the stomach pH to rise. When the stomach pH rises above 4.5, the stomach produces more hydrochloric acid. Here is the chemical formula of hydrochloric acid formation:
H20 + CO2 + NaCI = HCI =NaHCO3
The above formula tells us that water, carbon dioxide and sodium chloride (salt) produce hydrochloric acid and sodium bicarbonate. The hydrochloric acid goes into the stomach, and the sodium bicarbonate goes into the bloodstream.
The key thing to remember is this: sodium bicarbonate works as an alkaline buffer in our blood. When the blood becomes too acidic, the alkaline buffer works to raise the pH. If we don’t have enough sodium bicarbonates in our blood, we have trouble controlling the excess acid, which can result in premature aging, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, kidney stones, and a plethora of many other health problems.
Since the common American diet consists mainly of acidic foods (meat, dairy products, grains and sweets) and because of toxins in the environment, most people have an acidic pH level. If the pH level in our blood drops too low, acidosis may result. The dangers of this condition were mentioned earlier.
Why is this important?
Because disease grows far more easily in an acidic environment and has much more difficulty thriving in an alkaline environment. In an acidic environment, we are forcing our bodies to work much harder than they are designed to. This explains why disease can get a foothold to cause illness.
A slightly alkaline body is important for optimum health. Many diseases cannot survive in an alkaline environment.
No matter how hard you work out, and how much you watch your diet, you will never achieve optimum health until you have the proper acid/alkaline balance in your body.
Here are a few of the consequences of Acid-Alkaline Imbalance:
- Accelerated Aging. An acidic environment weakens the body’s cellular structure. This results in making the entire system function less efficiently, and speeds up the aging process
- Fatigue. This can be explained by a simple reason: acidosis reduces the body’s supply of oxygen, which is a main source of energy.
- Loss of Minerals. This unfortunate side effect of acidosis is a result of the body being forced to use its alkaline mineral supplies to neutralize excess acids in your fluids and tissues. Over time, this can have terrible and serious effects on the organs, as well as brittle nails, dry skin, sensitive gums and thinning hair.
- Brain Fog. The brain requires approximately 20% of all the oxygen you take in. as mentioned above, acidosis reduces the body’s supply of oxygen. This may result in poor concentration, forgetfulness and a host of other brain issues from mood swings to sleep impairment.
- Cardiovascular Problems. Another simple explanation: the heart needs oxygen. Acidosis = low oxygen
If you are suffering from any of these problems, there is a good chance that you are overly acidic. This is true for so many people…and sad, because the solutions are easily available: stay properly hydrated and…choose the right foods!
Sleep deprivation is worse than imagined
The obvious bad effects of a lack of sleep are low energy and trouble concentrating. But there are other bad effects many are not aware of. Here are a few of them:
- Weight gain: Most dieters know that eating before bed is not helping their efforts to lose weight. But a lack of sleep can pack on the pounds as well. Deep sleep allows our bodies to release growth hormone, lower blood sugar and process leptin, a protein hormone that regulates appetite and metabolism. When you are sleep deprived, none of these things happen as they should. This can wreck havoc on our waistlines.
- A weakened immune system: Our immune systems protect us from bacteria, viruses, toxins, microbes and parasites. Considering that we are entering flu season, a weakened immune system is the absolute last thing we need. Yet this can happen as a direct result of a lack of sleep
- High blood pressure: As if these other concerns weren’t bad enough, add this nightmare to the list: when you sleep, your heart gets to rest, and is able to take a break. But skipping sleep makes your heart work overtime. This can elevate blood pressure, and lead to other cardiovascular problems.
- Lack of Growth Hormone production. During sleep, growth hormone is released. Scientists believe that this is a natural part of the body’s normal tissue repair. Can you see why deep sleep combines so well with HGH therapy? Sufficient sleep kicks in HGH therapy, and creates the internal environment in your body to allow HGH therapy to work at its highest level, with one goal in mind…to make you younger.
- And more…many more: lack of sleep can make you accident prone, cause a lowered sex drive, accelerated aging, depression, and even increased mortality.
All of these reasons should make you aware of the importance of consistent, sound sleep as a key component of your overall health plan. Yet the pace of modern life, with a plethora of distraction and an ever-increasing workload, can make getting a good night’s sleep challenging…far more challenging than in the past.
In desperation, many folks turn to prescription sleeping pills. But they may come with some horrendous side effects. Hallucinations, sleepwalking, memory problems, excessive grogginess and fatigue the following day are all too common.
This is due in part to the fact that sleeping pills can reduce the overall quality of your sleep; this means less of the deep, restorative and dream-inducing sleep your body craves. Another drawback of sleeping pills is that they can lead to addiction. Some people swear they can’t sleep without them. They also lose their effectiveness when you quit using them, since they produce no long-lasting beneficial effects.
If all of that weren’t bad enough, consider this. It is easy to build up a tolerance to sleeping pills. This is caused by the brain receptors becoming less sensitive to them. This can happen in less than a month. Clearly, sleeping pills are not the answer.
Here are a few general guidelines for getting and staying asleep:No caffeine or alcohol for at least 5 hours before bedtime
- No strenuous exercise just before retiring
- Try to get to bed at the same time every night. This will develop a body rhythm that will make it easier to fall asleep
- Keep your bedroom completely dark
- Try to relax and wind down before going to bed
Get Off The Couch! Physical Fitness: The Fountain of Youth
As your body moves feels the surge of growth hormone flooding though your veins, you will notice your energy levels will skyrocket! So why not take advantage of this by getting and staying active?
If you are sick and tired of looking in the mirror and not liking what you see…or if you need to lose weight and gain more energy…and if, after years of neglect, you are feeling a bit guilty about not doing more for your body…then stop thinking about it. Do something about it.
Combining the correct workout routine with the Conscious Evolution Lifestyle recommended high-quality nutrition, the latest cutting-edge supplements and HGH and TRT will produce wonders far beyond what any of these practices could ever do on their own. So let’s get after it, and start looking and feeling decades younger. The right fitness program will allow you to:
- Blowtorch ugly, unhealthy fat
- Skyrocket your energy levels and reduce stress
- Discover muscles you never knew you had
- Strengthen your heart and lungs…in amazing quick time
- Develop freakish flexibility, fluidity and balance
- Pump up your health and quality of life
- Develop a lean, toned, muscular body that is efficient, and will do what you want it to do
- Prevent or reduce the effects of illness and disease
- Improve your favorite sports performance
- Prevent injury and improve bone density
- Dramatically boost your metabolism
- Fall into deep, restorative sleep – every night
- Improve your posture
- Develop laser-like mental focus
- Add color and youthful glow to your skin
Finding the correct exercise and fitness routine that fits your lifestyle and personal circumstance will take some research and experimenting, and you may consider hiring the services of a certified fitness trainer. But for starters, here are a few general guidelines:
- Start Slowly. Every January, gyms are crowded with new members, intent on keeping their New Year’s resolution to lose weight and get in shape. However, by March, the gyms are back to normal. Why? Because the overwhelming majority of new members are in a mad rush to achieve their dream body. Consequently, they try to do too much too fast. When the inevitable injuries come, or their progress is not happening as quickly as they were led to believe, they become discouraged – and revert back to the recliner. Don’t become a fitness casualty. Take things slow, especially if you have been inactive for quite a while.
- Strive for balance. Strength, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility and balance are all importantcomponents of health and fitness. Yet many people only want to work at what they feel comfortable with. For example, muscular men continue to lift weights, and refuse to get out and run. Marathon runners built like matchsticks refuse to touch a barbell, and flexible women capable of performing Yoga at contortionist levels are afraid to pump iron for fear of becoming “too muscular.” This is wrong on all levels. Everyone needs strength, endurance, flexibility and balance for daily living. If you are weak in one of these areas, this is your body telling you to devote more time to it…not ignore your weakness.
- Compete with yourself. You do not have to enter a bodybuilding competition or run in a marathon to become physically fit. Nor do you have to compare yourself with anyone else. Instead of looking at someone and wishing you looked like they do, focus on developing the best body you can.
It’s a marathon – not a Sprint. When asked when you plan to stop exercising, the correct response is to answer with another question: “when do you plan to stop brushing your teeth?” Remember, when done correctly, fitness is a way of life. Many people continue to be active well into their 80s and 90s…and a few even beyond.
Let’s break these fitness categories down for a closer look.
One of the best ways, if not the best way to stimulate our natural production of growth hormone is by resistance training, or as some would say, strength training. This can be done with barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, exercise bands, or just plain old body-weight exercises. Here’s a quick look at each of these methods:
Barbells and Dumbbells. They’re old-fashioned. They’re basic. They’re hard. But they work. All serious, competitive bodybuilders and power-lifters use them as their foundation – every single one. But so do countless housewives, harried executives, senior citizens and just about anyone else that wants to get stronger. Remember, you have the freedom and luxury to lift to just slightly beyond your comfort level. You are not in competition with the huge monsters in the popular muscle magazines. But that doesn’t mean for one second that you can’t reap the benefits of working out with weights.
There are countless theories, routines and a seemingly endless array of advice about how to approach the activity of bodybuilding. But the message to remember is this: relax! It’s really not as complicated as it initially seems. Here’s the deal…
The basic exercises work wonders. Always have, always will. Barbell bench presses, incline dumbbell presses and dumbbell fly’s are a good, basic chest routine. For the back, you can’t beat the combination of pull-ups and bent-over barbell or dumbbell rows. If you have access to a lat-pulldown machine, add lat pull-downs and seated rows. For the shoulders, overhead presses with a barbell or dumbbell, along with front, side and rear lateral dumbbell raises will do the job.
For arms, barbell or dumbbell curls will work the biceps, while close-grip barbell bench presses, overhead dumbbell triceps presses and dips will blast the triceps. For legs, squats are the king. For that ripped abdominal six-pack, hanging leg raises from a chin-up bar, crunches and planks will hit all angles.
This is far from a comprehensive list of weight-lifting movements. But no matter how long you have been lifting, never stray too far from the basics. They are your foundation, so make your foundation strong.
For the sake of brevity, we have omitted the details of the correct form for these exercises. This information is available through books, magazines, You Tube or a personal trainer. No matter how you learn proper form, never forget that form trumps weight. If you can’t perform the exercise in strict form, check your ego at the door and drop the weight. This will both speed up your gains and prevent injury.
One last thing: many women are concerned about gaining too much muscle. Is this likely? In a word, no. The overwhelming majority of women simply do not possess the hormones to get huge in a muscular sense. But if you are a woman who is concerned about looking too masculine, consider this: you can always stop lifting if your muscles are growing too fast for you, or at least drop the amount of weight you are lifting and change your program. So please don’t worry…you won’t turn into a man!
Kettlebells are an ancient fitness secret from Russia that has been referred to as “The AK-47 of muscle-building, fat-burning fitness.” They look like small cannonballs with handles. As with weights, there are many exercises to do with kettlebells. If you give them a try, pick the one’s you are comfortable with.
These are available at any sporting goods store, as well as many retailers. They come with instructional DVD’s, and are great for taking on the road.
What we’re referring to hear is good old-school calisthenics. They fell out of favor decades ago, due to the popularity of weight-lifting. But they have made a remarkable comeback. They can ramp up your strength, as well as endurance. They put little stress on your joints, you can do them at home, and, like exercise bands, are great for the road.
A grim fact: as we age, the cells in our lungs start to evaporate and disappear. This causes our lungs to shrink and we lose our stamina, strength and our ability to fight off disease and infection. We begin to show all the debilitating and insidious effects of aging: always getting tired, getting sick more often and staying sick longer, not wanting to get out of the rocking chair, and even having trouble concentrating, since our bodies and brains become oxygen-starved.
Several decades ago, this problem was recognized, and the solution of the time was aerobics…running, jumping around or pedaling for 45 minutes to an hour. But there were some problems with this approach.
At the time, the common wisdom was “the more, the merrier.” Spending up to an hour on a treadmill, stationary bike or stair-stepper was the normal and accepted way to do cardio. This was done at a slow, steady pace, and in spite of the fact that simple observation in any gym revealed many folks did hours and hours of this week after week (but didn’t lose much weight), no one ever questioned the effectiveness of training this way – until recent research has shattered this antiquated notion.
Let’s start with some simple logic. The main benefit of aerobic exercise is to strengthen the heart and lungs. The heart is a muscle and should be trained like any other muscle. Let’s take a brief look at how we train other muscles.
For example, if we are training biceps, we usually do 3-4 sets of barbell or dumbbell curls with 60-80% of the maximum weight we can curl for one repetition. As a general guideline, we would do between 6 to 10 repetitions.
What we wouldn’t do is take a one pound dumbbell and curl it 10,000 times for one-half hour. Yet that is exactly what slow, long-distance jogging does.
Human beings did not evolve running this way. Our caveman ancestors didn’t run marathons. Instead, they sprinted short distances to either get dinner or avoid being dinner. Today, this is called High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT).
A huge benefit of HIIT is that this type of training allows you to get a great cardio workout in 10 to 20 minutes…no more! Here are some ideas for a HIIT routine. Keep in mind that these are only guidelines. Every person’s conditioning is different, so some folks will need more intensity, some will need less. Once again, this will give you ideas for developing your own personal routine.
Running: begin with a slow, 2 minute warm-up jog. Then sprint for 30 seconds, then walk for 30 seconds. Repeat this cycle 12 times, then finish with a cool-down walk for 2 minutes. In less than 20 minutes, you’re done!
Stationary Bike, Elliptical, Rowing Machine, Jumping Rope or Stair-stepper: Same as above. Always begin with at least a 2 minute warm-up at a comfortable pace for injury prevention. Then begin the explode/recover cycles. Don’t forget to take at least 2 minutes for cool-down purposes.
An important point to remember is this: the recover part of the cycle does not mean coming to a complete stop. Keep moving, but at a much slower pace.
HIIT workouts are done for 20 minutes at a time, 3 days a week. This adds up to only one hour per week! Contrast that with the hours of training spent by long distance runners each week.
Another benefit of HIIT is that your joints, muscles and tendons will not be subjected to the constant pounding that long distance runners suffer. Over time, this pounding adds up, causing many long distance runners to stop running completely.
More good news: you are allowed and encouraged to set your own pace. Please don’t be intimidated by the sound of high-intensity. Just remember, it’s all relative, depending upon the shape you’re in. As mentioned earlier, everyone is at a different level of conditioning. Therefore, the above-mentioned interval times are only guidelines.
For example, an Olympic-level athlete may sprint all-out for 2 minutes, then walk for 10 seconds. At the other end of the spectrum, if you have been sedentary for a long time, or if you are very old, over-
weight, or recovering from a serious illness, you will probably be reversing the Olympian’s ratio, and substitute a slightly quicker pace for an all-out sprint. You can alternate between slow and very slow, and pick things up gradually. HIIT will still work.
The keys are consistency and improvement. By gradually increasing the intensity time, you will vaporize fat and ramp up muscle gains – as a direct result of more growth hormone being released.
What about walking? Can that help? YES! There are a few concerns about HIIT. One is that HIIT is impossible for most of us to do 5-6 times a week, due to over-training. Also, HIIT may lead to injury more often than the old-fashioned, long and slow cardio. Both of these are valid concerns.
The answer to both of these concerns is simple. If you are just starting out, or not in good physical condition, simply substitute walking for the more intense cardio activities…and vary the pace of your walking. Again, this could be 30 seconds walking quicker, then 30 seconds walking slower. As always, the intervals can be adjusted, depending upon your conditioning. If done in this manner, HIIT can work for virtually anyone, at any age, in any condition.
Still another benefit of HIIT is that this type of activity triggers what is called “afterburn.” When you finish this explode/recover training, your body immediately begins to burn fat to replace the energy you have just expended.
Here’s the secret as to why HIIT works so well: this style of training triggers the release of a “super-hormone” that melts fat at a blistering pace. The hormone? Human Growth Hormone.
Slow-paced, long-distance jogging can trigger the opposite response. We are told by many fitness trainers that long, slow bouts of cardio will burn fat while you work out – and you are told to stay in that fat-burning zone as long as possible.
The problem with this approach is that this type of cardio can produce the exact opposite effect! Why? Because we don’t want to burn fat while we are working out. When this happens, we are telling our body that we need fat. Our adaptive bodies acknowledge that by making more fat and saving it for the next cardio session, when it will be needed.
By contrast, as mentioned earlier, HIIT burns fat only when we are done with our workout and are resting.
Still not convinced? Here’s something else to consider. Look at a sprinter’s muscular body. Then look at a typical (extremely lean) marathon runner. Who would you rather look like? The reason for this is easily explained: HIIT causes more muscle retention, since it activates more muscles than slower cardio.
When HIIT is combined with Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy, the results are astonishing. Save time, blowtorch fat, pump up your muscle, look younger and skyrocket your energy levels.
At first thought, it may seem a stretch (pun intended) to connect yoga with growth hormone release. As mentioned earlier, the pituitary gland releases growth hormone naturally during sleep. At this time, there is no direct research that can definitively tie yoga to growth hormone release. However, we do know that the pituitary secrets more growth hormone when we are relaxed – and relaxation helps us sleep better.
Regular practice of yoga can also lengthen the muscles. This may help to correct posture, and make you appear taller. Yoga classes are increasingly common, and much is available through books, dvd’s and You Tube.
When we do traditional exercises on a stable platform (like the floor or on a bench), we decide what muscles to use. Consequently, the larger muscles do most of the work, and the smaller muscles and our nervous systems tend to get lazy and go to sleep. As a result, our muscles don’t work together as a team.
But when we do movements on unstable surfaces (stability balls, PVC pipes, wobble disks and slant boards), we are constantly stabilizing and re-balancing ourselves. This means that our bodies decide on what muscles are needed, and our smaller muscles and nerves are summoned into active duty.
This results in a dramatic increase in proprioception, which is defined as the ability to perceive position, pattern and speed of the body or parts of the body by gathering more accurate information and delivering that information quickly to the brain.
The result? Increased endurance, balance, agility, all-around athletic performance and far more efficient body movement. As an added benefit, this style of training is great for preventing falls…a major hazard for senior citizens.
As with earlier-mentioned training methodologies, instruction on this type of training is available through books, dvd’s and You Tube.
Chi Kung is the art of developing energy by deep breathing, coordinated with slow movements and visualization. For thousands of years, the Chinese people have sworn that Chi Kung can cure and prevent disease, promote health and longevity, reduce stress, eliminate toxins, increase libido and improve sports ability. Chi Kung has also been described as a “Fountain of Youth.”
The practice of Chi Kung is soft and easy on the body. As with Yoga, the more relaxed we are, and the more healthy we are, the more effective HGH therapy will be.
If you are interested in learning and practicing Chi Kung, try to find an experienced instructor, or, failing that, learn from a variety of books, videos and You Tube.
A Word About Fitness Supplements
Decades ago, most fitness supplements were nowhere near as effective as hyped. This was due in large part to the widespread abuse of anabolic steroids. Since steroids were previously relatively easy to obtain, serious bodybuilders had no need for effective supplements. Therefore, the supplement companies produced and marketed many inferior products.
However, due to the enactment of new laws targeting steroids, demand for bodybuilding supplements that really worked soared. At first, the supplement companies were challenged. An analogy is the fuel crisis of the 1970′s. In the 1960′s, engines were big, bad, loud gas hogs. Fortunately, gas was cheap at that time.
But suddenly, the days of paying 30 cents per gallon at the fuel pumps was a distant memory. The auto companies were forced to produce a more powerful, fuel-efficient car, in a smaller package. It took time, but by the 1980′s, the result was cars that had engines as powerful as the “muscle cars” of the 1960′s, and far more efficient. The bodybuilding supplement industry has a similar evolution. Here are a few supplement recommendations:
- Protein drinks. Whey protein is fast acting, and should be taken immediately after your workout. Casein protein is slower acting, and should be taken in the evening, allowing it to slowly work while you are sleeping
- Creatine Monohydrate. This safe and effective supplement can increase muscle size and strength by altering cell volume (allowing more water into the cells).
- Myo-X. This is a myostatin inhibitor. Myostatin is a powerful negative regulator of skeletal muscle mass that restricts muscle growth. There is a medical condition known as “double muscling”, which is a medical term used to describe extreme muscle hypertrophy (growth). When you think about it, if our muscles grew out of proportion to the rest of our body, we couldn’t move. Clearly, there is a need for myostatin. However, when we are trying to gain muscle, we could use a little less of it. Several bodybuilders have stated that Myo-X does exactly that. This safe and legal supplement is easy-to-buy, and well-worth the investment.
- D-aspartic acid (D-AA or D-asp). This substance has been shown to boost testosterone levels, increase muscular strength and support metabolic function
Miscellaneous Tools and Approaches
Medicine balls, Indian Clubs, Suspension Training, Plyometrics, Tai Chi – the list can go on and on. The point is this: we are living in a true “golden age” of physical fitness. Never before in history have we been blessed with such a wide array of fitness options. To make sure that your HGH therapy has the maximum effect, stay active. Try several methods for a balanced approach, or find your fitness niche…then just do it!
One final word on exercise and fitness. Before beginning any exercise program, be sure to get the green light from your physician.
Just Listen to a few of the people who have transformed their lives:
Here are the words and before and after photos of satisfied people who have made the changes discussed above. The individuals in these photos have not been altered using any airbrushing or graphic design techniques.
Anna is a bartender/waitress. She is living in New York City in her twenties, and is studying film. She keeps very busy and does not eat too much, but she was unhappy with herself when she found herself thirty five pounds overweight over the course of a single year. She was so occupied with her schoolwork and her jobs that she simply didn’t know how she could return to a healthy weight. In addition to this, she began to be plagued with various medical illnesses.
Eleven months later, after living the Conscious Evolution Lifestyle for eleven months from January to November of 2008, she dropped forty pounds and returned to her athletic weight of high school. In addition to this, her level of energy skyrocketed, and her focus, memory, and mental acuity are the sharpest she has ever experienced. She reports that she feels that she has attained what we prefer to call the Conscious Evolution Super Life.
Take a look at Anna’s stomach in the picture on the lower left corner. It is visible all the way from her back to the arm of the friend she is hugging in a family Christmas picture. Now look at the picture in the upper, left hand corner. Look at the round, flabby face and the fat around the chin. In the upper right hand picture her double chin is incredibly noticeable. The pictures were taken before Anna began living the Conscious Evolution, and she has given us consent to show them to you.
In November of 2008 she went on vacation to southern Florida and took some amazing “After Photos.” These were taken almost eleven months after she began living the Conscious Evolution lifestyle.
Take a glance at Anna’s chin and stomach both before and after she made the commitment to change. There is simply no way to Photoshop or airbrush reality. She almost threw away the beautiful dress she is wearing in the photo on the upper left corner. The “Before” photos are from before the diet began, and the after photos are from the end of the year. Just look at the startling difference.
Martin is a top-level systems engineer for a New Jersey aeronautic company. He kids that being happily married caused him to put on the pounds. With the breakdown and ultimate dissolution of that once happy marriage he became an altered form of his once-healthy self. Because of this he made the heartfelt decision to make the change-to live and breath by the Conscious Evolution Lifestyle.
Martin looks at his “Before” photos and tells us that he looks like he was attacked by a hornet’s nest.
After six months of living the Conscious Evolution, he lost a jaw-dropping fifty pounds!
Look at these two and remember: Healthy folks don’t just look younger, they have stronger immune systems and live longer, happier lives as well.
Healthy people don’t just look younger; they live longer too and have significantly less disease.
By following these guidelines, you will set the stage and create the perfect environment for Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy to blast off…and deliver to you all of its miraculous benefits. It’s really that simple. Remove the obstacles, that watch and feel the difference!
Here’s what you need to know about this fascinating nootropic
In the movie Limitless, a struggling writer who just couldn’t seem to organize his thoughts was given a pill called NZT-48. In a remarkably short period of time, he developed the ability to finish his novel in just 3 days, in spite of the fact that before taking the substance, he had been struggling for months to get a single page completed.
But that’s not all. He suddenly found that his mind had expanded to seemingly miraculous heights. He had turned into a walking, talking encyclopedia of obscure facts and figures, and possessed voluminous knowledge about anything and everything. His mental acumen was such that he could learn a foreign language in just 4 days…read a 1,000 page book in just a few short hours, and master the piano in a week…classical style! In short, his IQ was 4 digits, and his genius was unparallelled.
He then turned his new-found intellectual firepower to the stock market, and became quite wealthy day-trading. The world was his for the taking, or so it seemed. However, there were a few problems that were totally unexpected, like the potentially serious side effects of NZT-48, along with a shortage of the drug, and the desperate methods needed to obtain new supplies, not to mention the unsavory characters that our protagonist was forced to deal with.
Regrettably, there is no NZT-48
Limitless was indeed only a movie, and in real life there is nothing that is capable of making our IQ’s blast off into the stratosphere. But we do have smart drugs, commonly referred to as cognitive enhancers, or nootropics. The miracles of pharmacology have not always panned out. But one that many people believe has delivered its promised benefits is the popular drug Modafinil.
What is Modafinil?
Modafinil is a vigilance promoting drug that has been approved by the United States’ Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treatment of the wakefulness disorders of narcolepsy, shift work sleep disorder and excessive daytime sleepiness associated with obstructive sleep apnea. Modafinil is available in more than 20 countries, and in America, the drug is most commonly sold under the name Provigil.
Modafinil is a long-term acting drug, which may last up to 15 hours. Therefore, most users take it early in the day to prevent insomnia.
What are the benefits of Modafinil?
Many users feel that the drug is a cognitive enhancer that improves memory, focus and gives them an ability to “get things done” that they had not previously possessed. Listen to what one user said: “…they weren’t lying when they said it helps you focus. The focus on modafinil is breathtaking. It is like being on a train, going through a tunnel. There is no way to go but forward and there are no other distractions. Modafinil is the ultimate tunnel vision.” Here is a list of Modafinl’s benefits:
- Increased alertness
- A boost of energy
- Improved memory and concentration
- Enhanced attention span
- Brightens up your mood
- Unlike other harmful, illegal stimulants like methamphetamine or Cocaine, modafinil is not addictive and does not keep you up. It is clear wakefulness, with no nervousness or pounding heartbeat
- It can be bought without a prescription
- Promotes weight-loss and suppresses appetite.
- Skyrocket’s your motivation
- Allows you to make new connections between different concepts and circumstances. For many, these connections remain, even after the drug leaves your system
- Enhances creativity and enables you to smash through writer’s block
- Speeds up reaction time
- Acts as a “bandwidth expander” by letting you step back and see things differently
- The ability to work anytime. Modafinil allows you the freedom to work any hours as needed, day or night.
- Extinguishes your need to sleep. Remember, while taking modafinil you can sleep; you just don’t have to or want to. If done rarely, only on special occasions, this can be quite beneficial. But foregoing sleep is definitely not recommended on a regular basis
- Stops procrastination dead in its tracks. For most users, there is no more putting things off. Rather, it’s time to get after what you have been delaying.
The usual prescribed dosage of modafinil is 200 mg once a day. However, it is suggested that you start with a half-dose of 100 mg or even 50 mg to gauge the drug’s effects. This is especially true for people with a history of any type of health concern. Please check with your physician or health care provider to make sure modafinil is safe for you.
Modafinil’s possible side effects
Modafinil should not be taken by people with heart or liver problems unless cleared by a physician. Additionally, modafinil can make some types of birth control pills less effective, which may result in an unplanned pregnancy. Also, here are some possible side effects:
- Back pain
- Stuffy nose
Serious side effects can occur, though rarely. They are:
- Serious rash
- Serious allergic reaction involving the liver or blood cells
- Mouth sores
- Blistering or peeling skin
- Swelling of the face, eyes, lips, tongue, legs or throat
- Trouble swallowing or breathing
- Shortness of breath
If you experience any of these symptoms, stop using modafinil immediately, and seek professional medical advice and guidance. Fortunately, for the overwhelming majority of modafinil users, the drug is safe…extremely safe.
The ethics of modafinil
While discussing modafinil, many have questioned if the use of modafinil is “unfair” or “cheating” by giving the user an advantage over non-users. And many users are asked why they need an edge, and exactly what are they lacking that makes them unable to perform as highly while not using the drug.
To answer this, it must be mentioned that there is a degree of subjectivity with modafinil (and all other nootropics, for that matter). Some users see dramatic improvements and immediately feel many or all the effects of the earlier-mentioned benefits.
However, some users don’t feel that it gives them any benefits at all. This may be explained by the fact that healthy, ambitious and successful adults who are getting sufficient amounts of sleep may not notice much improvement because they are already performing at the top of their game.
And a few users experience some of the negative side effects listed above. For them, there is not only not an edge…they are actually worse off. Still others may experience benefits that may be the result of the placebo effect.
A possible explanation for all of these contradictions may be this: we really don’t know why or how modafinil works.
But back to the ethics of taking modafinil. No one is forced to use it, so that serves to take some of the sting from the unethical charge.
But considering the wonders of modern technology, it is becoming increasingly difficult to draw the line between what is ethical and what is not. For example, electricity, modern furnaces, eyeglasses, surgery, other medical procedures, automobiles, airplanes, calculators and computers allow users advantages over non-users. Is that unfair? Most people consider the progress and convenience that technology has delivered to us as a plus.
In fact, the case can be made that we owe it to ourselves and our families to do all that we can to stay healthy and perform to our full potential. This means exercise, good nutrition, safe supplements and safe nootropics…including modafinil.
Can modafinil be habit-forming? Yes. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. If you can accomplish your goals more efficiently and become more productive, and if the substance is safe, then it’s great if it is habit-forming.
Other effects of modafinil
Some users of modafinil have stated that they have experienced other effects not previously mentioned. Some have reported that their vision and kinesthetic sense is sharper. This could be good or bad. It’s good to be more in touch with your body and see colors and patterns more clearly. But it could be bad if you have old injuries that make an unwelcome reappearance. And while on modafinil, neon lights are brighter, which is probably not too distracting, unless you are on the strip in Las Vegas.
Other users have been so focused while taking modafinil that they have lost track of time, forgot to eat and drink enough water, and become engrossed in several topics at once, thus eliminating the benefits of the drug by jumping around from one topic to the next.
In addition, some users complain that due to modafinil’s long-lasting effects (12-15 hours), they are forced to plan their life around taking the drug, which can prove to be quite inconvenient. This is where modafinil has picked up the moniker of “the time-shifting drug.”
None of these side effects should be deal-busters on their own. The key is to be aware of them, and plan accordingly.
So, is modafinil right for you?
The long-term safety and effects of Modafinil are unknown. Having said that, this caveat could be said word for word when describing any drug, supplement or medical procedure (for example, gastric bypass or organ transplant), no matter how beneficial it may appear to be short-term.
The real question is this: does modafinil make you smarter? Most researchers feel that at best, modafinil allows you to more productively use your natural brainpower. However, it is no “miracle drug” a la NZT-48. But for many, it is the next best thing.
So once again, the question arises: is modafinil for you? That depends on you. If you decide to give it a try, don’t forget to follow the same rules that should be followed before adding any new supplement, drug or nootropic to your routine. Check with your physician or other medical professional, do your own research, then go to Internet forums and listen to what users say. Finally, respect the drug. Start small and cautiously, then see how you feel and go from there.
Congratulations! You have taken that all-important first step on a journey to a new you through the miracle of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) and Testosterone Replacement Therapy. My name is Mark Smith and I am your personal health executive, who would like to talk to you about some of our hormone injection programs.
BHRT Medical Solutions has access to a network of board-certified Medical Doctor’s in every state and county all across America. These physicians are happy to get you started on this exciting journey, by performing the necessary blood work and a comprehensive physical exam all in a single, convenient appointment.
Our medical institute provides medically approved, prescription HRT (bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy) programs. Our specialty is hormone replacement therapy for adult men and women over the age of 30 who have symptoms of hypogonadism, hypopituitarism, andropause, menopause, or Adult Onset Human Growth Hormone Deficiency (AGHD).
Before we go any further, the questions that you have to ask yourself are these: “What can HGH replacement therapy do for me? How will I benefit from this treatment?” Here are a few things to consider that will help you make an informed decision.
Do you suffer from any of these symptoms:
- Low energy levels during mid-day, and chronic fatigue
- Your healing and recovery abilities are becoming slower and slower…at times, almost a snail’s pace
- Insomnia, or other sleep disorders, with resultant tiredness during the day
- Mood swings, memory problems and all-too-often mental fog
- Loss of muscle strength and tone, along with diminished recuperative powers after a workout
- Joint aches and pains, with limited mobility
- Constant issues over your weight (losing too much, or gaining too much)
- Loss of interest in sex and/or low libido, weak erections or vaginal dryness
- Skin that seems to sag, become thin and become drier or more wrinkle-filled each passing year.
And the rest of the plethora afflictions that are associated with aging
This is no way to live…especially when you have an option!
Stop going through life merely existing or going through the motions. We provide hormone replacement therapy health and wellness programs only for people who have genuine medical needs. This does not include professional athletes looking for a performance boost, or shortcuts. Nor do we provide our service to those with purely cosmetic needs. Our programs address quality of life concerns.
Our mission is very clear. If your medical condition is caused by a hormone deficiency, and if you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, please contact us at your earliest convenience. We can determine if your symptoms are caused by a hormone deficiency, or if you are suffering from any other type of medical issue. Only after we have determined that your symptoms are a direct result of a hormone deficiency will we swing into action and prescribe you a comprehensive hormone injection program. We have a contact form on our web site you should fill out so we can schedule a phone consultation.
Whether you are brand new to the hormone replacement therapy process, or looking for a superior, high-quality and experienced clinic to professionally monitor your HRT therapy, you have come to the right place. Our well-trained, experienced staff, will treat you as an individual. You will not receive a “cookie-cutter” one-size-fits-all approach. We will carefully discuss your treatment options and provide our recommendations. Then, and only then will we develop a customized HRT, HGH, Sermorelin Acetate, HCG or testosterone therapy program to restore your energy…relieve your pain…and let you start living again!
But please do not proceed on your own. Although hormone replacement therapy is generally safe and non-toxic, with few adverse significant side effects, HRT is not always the right choice for everyone. But if you feel it may be right for you, please call me at your earliest convenience.

All About Human Growth Hormone
Is human growth hormone replacement therapy safe? Or dangerous? Is it right for you? Do you know the ways it can benefit you? Keep reading and finally discover the real facts.
You probably have heard about human growth hormone (HGH). With all the talk about major league baseball players and Olympic athletes continually being in the news with stories about HGH, how could you not have heard about it?
Add the fact that famous Hollywood movie stars have secretly (and some not-so-secretly) used it for decades to maintain their vibrancy and youthful appearance, and you can probably understand the appeal of HGH. Claims of skyrocketing energy…wrinkles almost magically vanishing as the skin glow reappears…slabs of ugly, disease-producing fat melting away like snow on a sunny afternoon…muscle regaining their long-lost tone…razor-like mental sharpness making a welcome return…all of these seemingly miraculous happenings reported by average people and even senior citizens may have aroused your curiosity. Perhaps you have even considered trying HGH it yourself.
Maybe you should. Maybe you shouldn’t. But before you decide, it is vitally important that you learn as much as possible about human growth hormone. What HGH is, the benefits, risks, costs and possible side effects that may arise with human growth hormone replacement therapy. Let’s get started at the beginning.
What is Human Growth Hormone?
All of the body’s hormone are important. However, without a sufficient level of growth hormone, none of the other hormones will perform as they are designed to do. Growth hormone is released by the pituitary gland, and is necessary for growth and healing. It is also in charge of strengthening the immune system, stimulating muscle growth, healing wounds, regenerating tissues and organs, and burning fat.
Before we go any further, remember that HGH is a “peptide hormone”, and not a steroid hormone. A peptide is a short chain of amino acids (which are closely related to proteins) that bends into a three-dimensional structure, fitting into receptors like a hand into a perfectly fitting glove. Our bodies contain several HGH receptors in all of our tissue, including muscles, fats, tendons and all of our internal organs. When released, most HGH migrates to the liver, where it is converted into growth factors such as IGF-1. This in turn stimulates cellular metabolism throughout the entire body.
Why this distinction is important
If you ask the average person if HGH is a steroid, there is a good chance their answer will be “yes”. Steroids are artificial, synthetic creations. As mentioned earlier, HGH is produced by our pituitary glands. There is nothing unnatural about it.
HGH secretion occurs through stimulation of the anterior pituitary by growth-hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) from the hypothalamus of the brain. The hypothalamus connects the brain to the body, controlling temperature, hunger, sleep, thirst, metabolism and several other functions.
Since it is directly connected to the central nervous system, the hypothalamus is hyper-sensitive to stress, the light/dark cycle, nutrients and even scents. The maximum release of HGH is during deep sleep, especially the first hour. Release can also occur from intense exercise, increasing vitamin D levels and taking the supplement glutamine.
The most common method of HGH replacement therapy is by prescription, and is injected by a physician.
Why Human Growth Hormone is so important
Maybe you have a teenage son or daughter. Or more than one. Or teenage grandchildren. Or perhaps you can remember your own teenage years. No matter what, most teens share similarities.
Eat, eat and eat some more. Anytime. Just about anything. And never get fat. Teens have boundless energy…the ability to think rapidly…grow like weeds, with startling increases in height and strength…and sleep in, seemingly forever.
Why are they this way? As a direct result of the growth hormone surge that they are experiencing. This is what gives them that blasting rush of continual energy. HGH is the closest thing to the fountain of youth that is known to science.
Unfortunately, Mother Nature takes away the punch bowl just as the party really gets swinging. Beginning around age 30, the pituitary gland secretes less and less HGH. This occurs at a rate of approximately 10% per decade.
Do the math. If we are lucky enough to blow out 80 candles on a birthday cake, we are physically about half the person we were at 30. This is why the elderly see what they see in the mirror. The shrunken muscles…the dry, weathered, wrinkly skin…the joints wracked with pain…the so-called “senior moments” that seem to occur with increasing frequency…the creeping feeling that they’re forgotten and stuck on the sidelines of life…and all of the other joys of old age.
Alleviating these symptoms can make a difference…a gigantic difference…in the lives of older people. Here are more symptoms of HGH deficiency:
- Weight gain
- Loss of muscle mass
- Thinning hair
- Mood swings
- Loss of memory
- Brain fog
- Loss of skin elasticity
- Reduced bone mineral density
- Trouble getting and staying asleep
It should be obvious that HGH deficiency can have many effects on the body, and most of them are bad. But what about the benefits of HGH replacement therapy?
HGH can increase fat burning and maintain lean muscle mass. This occurs due to HGH acting directly on these tissues by boosting levels of IGF-1, which is another peptide hormone that circulates in the blood. IGF-1 plays an important role in building and maintaining muscle. HGH and IGF-1 have also been shown to increase protein synthesis, decrease body fat and increase lean muscle mass. In addition, increases in IGF-1 levels have been shown to reduce the symptoms of HGH deficiency that were listed earlier.
What about side effects?
As with other pharmaceutical prescriptions, everything about HGH replacement therapy is not perfect, and there are potential risks. Here are some possible side effects of injectable HGH:
- Nerve and/or muscle damage and soreness at the injection site.
- Elevated cholesterol levels
- Tingling sensations and a numb feeling of the skin
- Possibly speeding up the growth of cancer cells and tumors
- Digestive discomfort
- Possible interaction with other drugs or medications that you are taking
- Questions concerning the quality of HGH. If you bought HGH illegally in the black market, there is no way you can be sure of the exact ingredients or the cleanliness and purity of the product you are taking
Mentioned above was the frightening possibility of speeding up the growth of cancer cells. This springs from the concern that increasing HGH levels also increases IGF-1 levels and activates the mTOR pathway. The study that produced this theory was conducted on animals, and had several other serious flaws. A study conducted by the Dutch National Registry of Growth Hormone Treatment in Adults concluded that long-term HGH replacement therapy did not increase the risk of cancer.
A 2002 article in the Journal of the American Medical Association on growth hormone stated that HGH was indeed able to increase lean muscle mass and strength while at the same time burning fat. However, the same researchers cautioned against the use of HGH injections due to the increased risk of diabetes that they noticed. HGH may induce a diabetic-like state of insulin resistance.
In bodybuilders, heavy HGH use has lead to insulin resistance and diabetic complications: kidney disease, cardiovascular disease, and neuropathy (damage or disease affecting nerves which may impair sensation, movement, gland or organ function, or other aspects of health, depending upon the type of nerve affected). Other bodybuilders reported swelling of the hands and feet, joint pain, carpal tunnel syndrome and gynecomastia (a condition characterized by the benign enlargement of breast tissue in males).
One of the scariest side affects of growth hormone has reared its grotesque head in the world of professional bodybuilding. HGH affects cartilage and bone growth by acting upon the cartilage. Your nose, ears and other parts of your face consist of cartilage. If the cartilage on your face grows, your appearance could be altered in a strange way. When combined with the fat loss from HGH, the affects are even more pronounced.
One final problem to be mentioned is referred to as the hideous “GH gut.” Take a look at professional bodybuilders on stage in a competition. Notice that a few of them have bloated mid-sections and seem to have a lack of abdominal muscle control. To be fair, not all bodybuilding competitors have this condition. And the ones that do may have it as a result of dangerous combinations of steroids, insulin, massive amounts of food and lazy posing.
The take-away on HGH side affects? There’s no doubt about it: HGH builds lean muscle mass, burns fat, and can deliver all of the anti-aging benefits promised. However, there may be consequences. Insulin resistance and water retention are not conditions to play around with. They are serious afflictions, and should never be ignored. Also, the water retention in soft tissues can cause nerve compression, which can result in carpal tunnel syndrome.
And there is also the terrifying possibility of seeing dramatic, unwanted changes in your facial appearance.
However, we don’t not take chances with your continued good health
Our products are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Also, our physicians will not consider administering HGH to you without a complete medical history and physical examination. They will consider what other drugs, medications and supplements that you are consuming, and will take steps to avoid any potentially dangerous interactions with HGH.
Our guidelines specify that if we are prescribing HGH, we must prescribe it safely and appropriately. We must target the right patient. We must have a confirmed diagnosis of HGH deficiency. We also conduct follow-up levels, which allows us to monitor your progress and any potential problems.
Additionally, you will be instructed to contact us immediately if any of these before mentioned symptoms arise. Your team of medical professionals will explain everything to you in detail, and will be on constant call as needed.
It’s your choice
In spite of the mindless platitudes continually repeated by many (who should know better), aging is far from a time of accumulated wisdom, tranquility and peace-of-mind. It can be, of course. But it all depends on avoiding the hardships and health problems that are attendant to advancing years. This is where HGH, when used properly, under the supervision of a well-trained, professional staff of medical professionals, can make all the difference in the world.
We have the highly-trained, professional staff. The knowledge. The experience. The ability to make a difference in your health and life…a huge difference. If you are willing to meet us half-way, and give us the chance to prove we can deliver the benefits of HGH to you, then human growth hormone replacement therapy may very well be the answer that you have been looking for.
In addition to our growth hormone replacement therapy, we offer a total, comprehensive program that will insure that you receive the maximum benefit from your HGH treatment. Exercise, nutrition and up-to-date, proven, effective and health-enhancing supplements are also included in our detailed package.
If this sounds like what you have been waiting for, we encourage you to contact us and begin the first step on a new, exciting journey.

Astaxanthin: The Anti-oxidant that is 6,000 times more powerful than Vitamin C!
Aging. No matter what the health problem is, if you dig deep enough, that one word is making the problem worse. From heart disease and cancer, to stroke, joint pain, mental fog and fatigue…andcountless other maladies…aging does not help ANY SICKNESS IMPROVE…ZERO, ZIPPO, NADA.
This has, of course, been known for centuries. And it has been the cause of many ideas, searches, treatments and theories to find a way to slow aging down, or even stop and reverse it. From ancient alchemists attempts at developing an “elixir of life” to confer eternal youth and longevity, to Ponce de Leon’s search for the elusive “Fountain of Youth” and countless other quests (some scientific and some far from it), the search has continued to this very day.
Regrettably, there is no “Fountain of Youth”
Most, if not all of these efforts have been in vain. “The Fountain of Youth” is seemingly as elusive today as ever. But there is science. In the past few decades, there have been several exciting breakthroughs that have shown great promise to finally gain a foothold in the battle against the hideous disease of aging. One of these developments is a substance called Astaxanthin, which has been referred to as “one of the most powerful anti-oxidants ever discovered.” Studies have shown astaxanthin to be up to:
- 40 times stronger than beta-carotene
- 100 times stronger than vitamin E

Recently, astaxanthin (pronounced “asta-ZAN-thin”) and called ATX for short, took a huge step toward becoming a household word when it was prominently featured and endorsed by Dr. Mehmet Oz on his popular daily television show. Dr. Oz gave astaxanthin a ringing endorsement, going as far as saying that astaxanthin is “the number one supplement you’ve never heard of that you should be taking.”
And it’s not just Dr. Oz
Scientists have spent decades researching natural methods of nutrition and supplements that can make a difference…a huge difference…the the life-and-death struggle against aging. And as the results of more studies keep rolling in, astaxanthin is withstanding their scrutiny, and taking its place on the “all-star” anti-aging starting line-up. Let’s take a look at what astaxanthin is, how it works, and why it is so effective.
What is astaxanthin?
Astaxanthin is actually two words combined. The Greek word “Asta” means “star-like.” Xanthin is Greek for yellow, and describes the yellow, orange and red-colored family of vegetables like carrots, sweet potatoes and red peppers. Together they form the word astaxanthin, which is truly a “star” nutrient that floods your body with benefit after benefit.
Astaxanthin is a red pigment molecule found in some types of marine algae. When it is eaten by shrimp, and crustaceans, the pigment turns their shells reddish. When eaten by fish like salmon and birds like flamingos, it is responsible for the spectacular red and pink beauty of these creatures.
Astaxanthin functions as a natural sunscreen for marine plants. Initially, researchers looked at how effective ATX could be as a topical sunscreen because of its mighty ultraviolet light-absorbing properties. However, they quickly discovered that astaxanthin delivered several more benefits: anti-inflammatory protection, free radical scavenging and mitochondrial defense.
In fact, one researcher stated that ATX shows “demonstrable promise for slowing age-related functional decline.”
Here are some of the incredible benefits astaxanthin can deliver; astaxanthin can…
- Rejuvenate the skin from within. Many people use all types of skin lotions, gels and moisturizers to keep their skin glowing. This is a good start. However, the skin needs protection from within as well. ATX permeates deeply into all skin layers, including at the cellular level, not just the topical (outside) layer. This not only protects the skin from current and future damage. It also has the ability to reverse years of accumulated damage as well. Astaxanthin has even been referred to as “an internal sunscreen”, and when all the facts are in, that is indeed an accurate description.
- Supercharge your immune system. Astaxanthin stimulates the growth of white blood cells, and speeds up their activity. This means that your cancer and infection-fighting troops are in “fighting shape” and are able to crush invading cells attempting to wreak havoc by introducing all types of disease into your body. Astaxanthin also strengthens the immune system by neutralizing free radicals, thus preventing oxidative stress.
- Cause your energy levels to skyrocket. Astaxanthin flows into all of the body’s organs, including the heart. Once there, astaxanthin increases mitochondrial energy delivery. The result? A powerful, more efficiently-pumping heart, and quicker muscle recovery from intense exercise.
- Keep you sharp mentally. According to a study by the Home Instead Senior Care organization (the world’s leading home health care provider for seniors), Americans fear developing Alzheimer’s disease more than any other serious, life-endangering illness. Scientific studies have proven time and time again that the number one cause of cognitive decline is oxidative stress. Astaxanthin has the rare ability to penetrate the blood-brain barrier. This allows it to fill up the brain and give iron-clad protection to your brain tissue from oxidative stress. Another bonus: due to this ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, astaxanthin can reduce the risk of stroke.
- Help restore youthful flexibility to your joints. Joint pain, aches and discomforts are not an inevitable part of aging, regardless of what many believe. The key to preventing joint problems is keeping your cartilage in tip-top shape. The problem? As you age, free radicals attack your cartilage by causing oxidative stress, our old nemesis. Once again, astaxanthin steps up to the plate, and knocks these attackers out of the ballpark.
- Protect your precious vision. Macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, eyestrain, nearsightedness, far-sightedness…you name the eye problem…all become more common as we age. Toxins, pollutants, sunlight, alcohol and smoking all add up to take a toll on your good vision. Astaxanthin can cross the blood-retina barrier, which enables it to deliver protection to the fovea and cones of the eye, which are so important to the health of your eyes as you age. Astaxanthin also shields your eyes from free radicals. ATX is closely related to the molecules lutein and zeaxanthin, which are two large components of the human retina. Astaxanthin protects retinal cells against oxdative stress and puts up a wall-of-defense that stops the growth of new blood vessels on retinas, which is a precursor of macular degeneration. Astaxanthin also restores retinal boundaries to normal in the eyes of glaucoma sufferers, which stops the cell death associated with this terrible affliction.
- Protect your liver. Here again, astaxanthin’s ability to prevent oxidative stress helps this all-important and all-too-neglected organ to do its job of detoxification far more effectively. Bacteria, dead red blood cells, viruses and toxins are easily removed, giving this overworked organ the break it deserves.
- Keep your arteries clean as a whistle, and keep you cholesterol levels healthy. As a result of astaxanthin’s ability to reduce inflammation, the production of certain enzymes that destabilize plaque is reduced, which in turn lowers the chance that this plaque will rupture and block blood flow. Therefore, your risk of heart attack and stroke is dramatically reduced. Also, a 2010 Jikei University study concluded that astaxanthin raised “good” HDL cholesterol and reduced triglycerides. Most scientists believe that the ratio of good HDL cholesterol to “bad” LDL cholesterol is more important than any other cholesterol number. Astaxanthin puts this ratio on your side.
- Fight inflammation. Aging is a disease, and inflammation is at the core of it. Inflammation is considered to be a major cause of serious illnesses such as cancer, heart attack and diabetes. Astaxanthin is a powerful anti-inflammatory substance that can attack these problems at their roots.
The recommended daily dosage of astaxanthin is 4 milligrams (mg). This amount is sufficient to obtain astaxanthin’s benefits. However, remember that anything less will probably not be nearly as effective. Good food sources for astaxanthin are wild salmon, crab, shrimp, craw-fish, lobster, red trout, carrots, red peppers and other red-pigmented vegetables and fruits.
Astaxanthin is considered a GRAS (generally recognized as safe) substance by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This means that a chemical or substance added to food is considered safe by experts.
However, there are some people who should proceed cautiously with astaxanthin supplementation. If you are taking medication for hypertension (high blood pressure), high cholesterol, thyroid problems, asthma, osteoporosis, or for that matter just about any other prescription drug, you must get the okay from your physician or health-care provider. This will make you aware of any possible interactions between your medicine and astaxanthin.
Also, women who are pregnant or breast-feeding should avoid supplementation with astaxanthin. There is no reported danger, but staying away from anything that could be passed to the baby or the fetus is highly recommended.
But for most people, astaxanthin is safe.
Which form of astaxanthin should you take?
Astaxanthin is made in two forms: natural and synthetic. When you take the natural form, you are getting the cleanest form. Some additives in the synthetic form are processed in a laboratory. Some of the ingredients in the synthetic form may be used only as preservatives, or to deepen color. These are not added to enhance the product’s health benefits.
So how do you know if the form of astaxanthin is natural or not? Read the label. If you have trouble pronouncing most of the ingredients, and if you need a degree in chemistry to understand them, check for another brand.
A good way to insure your astaxanthin is natural is to look for the words “natural astaxanthin” on the bottle. Also make sure it is derived from the marine algae species H. Pluvialis. Synthetic versions of astaxanthin may have less than half the potency of the real deal.
You know how destructive and debilitating aging can be. Painful, stiff joints, mental fog and confusion, formerly vigorous people reduced to chronic fatigue and needing canes to shuffle around, muscular loss and weakness, lack of appetite, trouble getting and staying asleep, and the loss of independence and dignity. It’s ugly. It’s revolting. It’s tragic. And perhaps the saddest part of all…it does not have to be that way.
Knowledge and action are the keys to preventing aging from stealing the quality of your life. Knowledge of what to do and what not to do to stay healthy. And taking action to do what’s needed to fight the disease of aging. For sure, there are no certainties, and no “silver-bullets” or guarantees that you won’t suffer from these problems.
But there are steps you can take to give yourself every chance in the battle against Father Time. Supplementing with astaxanthin is one of these actions that has been proven effective in this life-and-death struggle. Remember, many anti-oxidants cannot penetrate the blood-brain barrier, and therefore are unable to provide comprehensive protection for all of your body’s cells.
But astaxanthin can
What this means is this: astaxanthin can gobble up free radicals in your eyes, brain, joints, bones, muscles, organs…throughout your entire body…in a manner that other anti-oxidants can’t. Astaxanthin is the gift that just keeps on giving. This is why ATX is referred to by many as “The Holy Grail” of anti-oxidants.
Mother Nature has provided our bodies with the ability to weaken free radicals. But Mother Nature never envisioned a planet so full of toxins and pollutants like the one we are forced to live in today. Faced with that grim reality, the free radical army can keep making breakthroughs…at the expense of our continued good health.
Free radicals do damage in a number of ways. They destroy our cell’s integrity, and make us look much older than we are. Many anti-oxidants can help turn the tide.
But astaxanthin is special, due to its unique ability to reach all parts of these damaged cells. As mentioned earlier, due to astaxanthin’s ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, it can penetrate cells thoroughly…and heal and strengthen the cells far more effectively than most anti-oxidants.
You would be well-served to consider adding astaxanthin to your life-extension, health-promoting program.

No question about it. The topics of Injectable Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy, Testosterone Replacement Therapy and Estrogen Hormone Replacement Therapy are indeed complex.
How to get started? What are the benefits and possible side effects? What is the science behind these therapies? How do you produce the results you promise?
For a detailed explanation of our procedures and protocols,
Our focus is on anti-aging techniques such as Testosterone Replacement Therapy Injectable Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy. Our mission is simple: smash aging and derail the aging express…once and for all!
Our therapies are the most efficient, up-to-date and cutting-edge treatments available. Also, our therapies are safe. They have been put through rigorous, multiple clinical tests and trials…and passed with flying colors!
Our HGH therapy combines a number of different anti-aging medical techniques that involve hormone stabilization, behavioral/body conditioning, chemistry balancing, and dietary guidance. All of these methods are designed to insure that your endocrine system is firing on all cylinders. This is the key to maintaining balanced levels of hormones.
Why is this so important? A simple answer. The body’s hormones (Growth Hormone, Testosterone, Estrogen, Melatonin and DHEA) begin to drop when we enter our thirties. At first, the effects are subtle…a little more fatigue here, a slower step there.
By as time passes, the effects become worse. And the older we get, the more we feel the effects of our hormone levels cratering. The results:
Less sexual desire than you had when you were younger…far less
Constant Fatigue, which destroys motivation
Pounds and pounds of ugly blubber accumulating all over the body…especially the mid-section
Increased depression, mood swings and irritability
Stiff, achy, creaking joints
Inability to fall into a deep, restorative sleep…and stay asleep all night
Dry, wrinkled and thin skin
Decreased renal function
Dangerous levels of cholesterol and triglycerides
Hair loss and change of hair color
Weak, thin bones, which often leads to osteoporosis
A dramatically weakened immune system, leading to increased illness
And more…way too many more to list
HRT Frequently Asked Questions
What is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)?
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a highly effective and safe treatment regimen that restores hormone homeostasis. Maintaining youthful levels of of hormones allow a person to feel happier, be more physically active, regain their powerful libido, and even boost fertility. HRT includes both Testosterone Replacement and Human Growth Hormone (HGH). HGH is the largest hormone the body manufactures. It is comprised of one hundred ninety-one amino acids. Our replacement HGH is Bio-Identical to naturally secreted HGH. The same recombinant genetic techniques are also used to manufacture insulin. Scientists have developed the ability to clone HGH’s DNA sequence, creating a product that is chemically and functionally identical to the hormone produced by the pituitary gland.
Testosterone is one of the primary androgens which largely cause normal male development, including the development of male reproductive and sexual organs. Testosterone also facilitates a number of secondary characteristics which develop at puberty, including strengthened bones, more powerful muscles, enhanced metabolism, full hair, and the deepening of the voice.
How does Hormone Replacement Therapy restore healthy Hormone Levels?
Testosterone is administered primarily through two methods, either through a topical cream applied to the skin or through a subcutaneous injection into the muscles. HGH is delivered by subcutaneous injection. Our fully trained Hormone Replacement Therapy specialists and physicians will walk you through the process. Relax! the injections are both painless and easy to administer.
Is Hormone Replacement Therapy Safe?
“YES”! Decades of clinical research has proven beyond any shadow of doubt that HRT is safe…absolutely, totally safe.
Is it effective?
Again, the answer is a loud, unequivocal “YES”! HRT is not a pipe dream…far from it. HRT is modern medical practice at its most advanced level. Research has produced countless medical studies and clinical trials that provide overwhelming evidence that HRT is effective, and produces numerous changes in the body, resulting in a stronger libido, enhanced energy, and an overall healthier life. Specialized, clinically trained doctors utilize highly advanced laboratory tests and therapy regimens to make these miraculous life-changing possibilities a reality.
At what age should I consider Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Our hormone levels start to drop as we reach our late twenties. By the age of thirty five, our levels of HGH begin a precipitous drop. Therefore, the best time for most individuals to begin considering HRT is between thirty five and fifty five years of age. But regardless of when you begin, the benefits exist throughout your entire lifespan. We have patients in their eighties who have discovered a better and healthier life through HRT.
Is it recommended to undergo Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone simultaneously?
It is safe and useful to replace hormones in any combination that will produce Hormone Homeostasis. More powerful results are often found when using multiple Hormone Replacement Therapies in conjunction with one another. We characterize the effects of multiple Hormone Therapy as synergistic, or a “one plus one makes three” relationship. The combinations work as a well-coordinated team
How does HGH lead to weight loss?
HGH has the ability to totally reshape the human body. It does this by altering the composition of the body, scorching excess fat while blasting off our muscle growth. It functions almost like noninvasive liposuction, using enhanced metabolism to suck the fat out of hard to reach areas such as the midsection. One major problem with gaining weight is that the release of HGH is hindered by abdominal fat. HGH Replacement Therapy causes this fat to burn faster, helping the body produce more HGH of its own.
The released fat is used for energy, which gives us more endurance. HGH unlocks stored fats and converts them to free fatty acids which are essential to maintaining endurance. All fat cells have Human Growth Hormone receptor sites. HGH binds directly to these cells and this causes a number of reactions which cause the fat cell to break down. “Lypolysis” is the name of this process. HGH changes the message to your body, telling it to break down and remove fat. HGH releases more energy, which means you burn fat even faster. What a powerful cycle!
How does Human Growth Hormone lead to stronger muscles?
HGH effects levels of Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1), which causes the cells to take in higher levels of amino acids. This leads to the greater manufacture of RNA and DNA proteins, which are proteins outside the cell. This allows the body to break down sugars and carbohydrates at a much faster pace. All this leads to cells which are larger and more robust, and undergo cell division at a far more rapid rate. This results in growth of the muscles. Muscles are also strengthened because HGH helps the body preserve more nitrogen for use by the muscles. Normally when weight loss occurs, nitrogen is expelled, but HGH preserves that nitrogen. HGH also boosts the synthesis of proteins without leading to protein breakdown in the cells. Enhanced cell replication also leads to faster rehabilitation after an injury occurs.
How can HGH and Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy improve sexual performance?
There are a number of difference causes of dysfunction in the bedroom, but Hormone Replacement Therapy is one of the safest and most effective ways to treat sexual issues in many cases. By restoring HGH and testosterone levels to their youthful peaks, the libido gets a much longed-for new lease on life.
Treatments like Cialis won’t help you with the symptoms of sexual dysfunction. It merely masks the issues by artificially propping up sexual ability. The Hormone Replacement Therapy Regimens that we use attack the cause, not the symptoms, of sexual dysfunction.
Will Replacement Therapy make my body produce fewer vital Hormones?
Hormone timing is a therapy technique used to prevent your body from producing lower levels of hormones as a result of HRT. Timing simply means taking breaks from hormone therapy. When Bio-Identical Human Growth Hormone and Testosterone are administered, the pituitary realizes that the body’s needs have been met and begins to cut back supply. It is vitally important to take breaks from HGH therapy at all ages. This is true for Testosterone therapy as well.
What are the common results obtained through Human Growth Hormone HRT?
Every individual responds in a unique way, but below is a general guideline of the results that you should see:
- Month One – Greater mental focus, relief of moderate or mild depression, increased enthusiasm to take on whatever comes our way. Exercise results will come faster and the pounds will begin to drop. Energy levels will begin to surge. Deep, restorative sleep will come easier
- Month Two – Muscle definition will become sharper, sexual ability will ramp up, nails will strengthen and skin will start to become tighter. Weight loss and strength gains will keep on coming. Hair will grow faster, thicker, and get back that healthy look. . Digestive ability will be smooth…say “goodbye” to discomfort.
- Month Three – Mental focus and will power will dramatically improve, to the point that it is noticeable to you, and others as well. Muscles will begin to increase in size, especially if you are following one of our recommended work out routines. In addition, you be overjoyed to experience regrowth of hair, increased libido and physical flexibility. In women, PMS symptoms will alleviate.
- Month Four – Results similar to month three. Changes will become more recognizable and consistent.
- Month Five - By now, slabs of fat will have melted away…and will keep melting away. This will cause the muscles to stand out…no more fear of being seen in a bathing suit. Skin tone improves and wrinkles start to fade. Hair regrowth continues its upward path.
- Month Six – Important time for women. This is when cellulite disappears…almost magically! Also, the natural contours of the female body start to reveal themselves. For both sexes, eyesight begins to strengthen, the immune system becomes much stronger, delivering iron-clad protection from illness and infection. Old injuries begin to heal, and your energy level is skyrocketing…allowing you to work out for much longer and harder than you could have imagined. Chronic pains are vaporized, and hair color starts to return. Bad LDL cholesterol levels drop and the cardiovascular system becomes healthier. The heart pumps more effectively blood pressure stabilizes. In addition to all of this, physical ailments that were the result of old diseases often begin to fade as well.
The facts about Human Growth Hormone
Our clinics provide doctor prescribed and professionally guided HGH Hormone Replacement therapies with the goal of helping patients undergo a reasonably priced yet totally comprehensive Anti-Aging program…safely, efficiently and legally.
HGH is one of the many hormones that are members of the endocrine system. Others include DHEA, melatonin, testosterone, and estrogen. All of these hormones start to drop in production as we get older. Hormone Replacement is a valid means to counteract this loss of naturally secreted hormones while also easing and possibly reversing the effects of aging. HGH is special, however. It can do more than simply just ease the painful process of aging. In addition to slowing down many aspects of aging, it actually reverses a number of the unwanted effects of aging as well!
Science has provided ample evidence that HGH HRT can turn back the clock by as many as twenty years in regard to many aspects of aging-and it can provide such results with a year or less of therapy! Every battery of clinical studies provide more and more evidence of the many astonishing benefits of HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy.
HGH is the most powerful, effective medical means by which to bring back the vigor of youth. Think of hormones as messengers which the hypothalmus and pituitary produce. The hormones send messages out to all parts of the body to encourage specific actions to be taken. They tell the body how to reproduce, digest food, and grow properly, among countless other functions.
As the name implies, HGH is the messenger which tells the body to grow. It is the most complex hormone that the body makes. It features a chain of 191 amino acids. HGH is manufactured and secreted by the pituitary gland, which sends surges of the hormone throughout the body. Somewhere between ten and thirty of these pulses are sent by the pituitary each day. Proper exercise ensures optimal release of the hormone. For a long time, physicians were only allowed to write prescriptions for HGH for children who needed help growing properly. Things have changed today, however. The FDA now gives the green light to physicians to provide HGH Therapy to adults with lowered levels of HGH. HGH Therapy aids in a number of the body’s functions, including: metabolism, emotional stability, physical strength, bone strength, muscle development, healing, mental acuity and tissue repair.
Human Growth Hormone production reaches its highest level during adolescence. This coincides with the period in which the body grows at its fastest rate. Sadly, Human Growth Hormone levels drop as we age. At the age of twenty, humans manufacture around five hundred mcg of Human Growth Hormone each day. By the time we enter our eighties, however, the rate of manufacture drops to sixty mcg or even lower…an astonishing loss of 95%!
Biologically Synthesized Human Growth hormones are known as Somatropins. Each company that produces Somatropin brands it for their own use. Brand names include Serostim, Saizen, Norditropin, Humatrope, and Genotropin. These Hormone Therapies are only provided with a prescription, and they are all delivered via subcutaneous injection.
After the pituitary secretes Human Growth Hormone, HGH sends a message to the liver to produce higher levels of IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor One). Think of HGH as the primary messenger, but keep in mind that IGF-1 is the means by which so many of the beneficial effects of HGH Therapy are produced. IGF-1 sends the message to the cells to reproduce, which causes so many beneficial results.
IGF-1 levels correlate closely with levels of HGH secreted by the body. For this reason, HGH levels are discovered in the lab by monitoring IGF-1 in the bloodstream. HGH pulses are difficult to interpret because of the brief amount of time that they spend in the blood stream, but IGF-1 stays much longer.
In the majority of people, the pituitary gland produces enough HGH to maintain a young appearance well into the thirties. Somewhere between forty and fifty, however, HGH production drops to a level at which aging becomes accelerated and wear begins to appear on the face and in the body. HGH is the tool the body uses to maintain health, beauty and youth.
We provide HGH HRT by means of physician-supervised HGH Regimens that were created to restore and/or replenish the human body’s own secretion of the hormone. HGH has comprehensive therapy options available for any budget, whether you wish to reverse the aging process or simply enhance your physical development with age. No matter what your needs and goals are, we will design a custom-made program…uniquely for you!
The easiest way to understand the endocrine system is to imagine it as a cascade. The brain is at the top. Directly beneath the brain is the pituitary gland. The message-receiving organs come next, such as the testicles, thyroid, and ovaries. The final destinations of this cascade of messages are all across the body wherever important functions are operating. The cascade causes the skin to remain healthy and strong and tells the ovaries to begin menstruation. It tells the body to begin developing primary and secondary sexual characteristics. It tells hair where to grow and the mind how to show initiative. The list could go on for pages and pages. The important thing to remember is this: hormones tell the body what to do, and HGH tells the body to stay young.
As mentioned above, the pituitary gland’s production and secretion of HGH begins to drop off around the age of 30. Take a look at this chart to get an idea of Mother Nature’s plans:
The hypothalamus - The hypothalamus is located near the core of the brain. This is where messages for the release of hormones begin. The cascade begins here where the releasing hormones such as Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone are secreted
The pituitary – This is where messages from the hypothalamus are received. This is the hormone command center, and is also known as the “master gland.” It is located near the brain’s base and is intricately connected to the hypothalamus through blood vessels and nerves. The releasing hormones travel between the two organs and the messengers tell the pituitary to release the various hormones that the pituitary creates into the bloodstream. The hormones of the pituitary then send messages to the rest of the organs of the body, guiding them through the various important functions that are needed to manifest a functioning human being.
The pituitary gland produces five primary hormones:
- Luteinizing Hormone
- Follicle Stimulating Hormone
- Thyroid Stimulating Hormone
- Adrenocorticotropic Hormone
- Human Growth Hormone
The pituitary gland releases these hormones into the bloodstream where they circulate out to send messages controlling the function of various and specific organs and bodily systems. Those organs and systems then release their own hormones. The pituitary gland can be likened to an air traffic controller. It assesses the situation of the body, makes decisions about what needs to be done, and then tells the organs how to function properly and synchronously with one another.
Hopefully, you can see how important it is for the pituitary gland to be functioning at its highest levels…and how HGH is designed to help it do just that.
There are a number of different things that result in maintaining youth. Good nutrition, keeping your weight at healthy levels, controlling stress, maintain good sleeping habits, taking the right supplements, following the right workout routine or just have good genetics. With luck and good habits, we all can attempt to stave off the aging process.
However, up until now these approaches have only given us a temporary fix to merely delay the onset of the afflictions of aging.But now, it’s a new day, and things have taken a dramatic turn for the better. HGH HRT provides many benefits that can make life better in ways that good habits simply can’t match. Of course, it’s important to maintain healthy habits to maximize the potential of therapy, but HGH Therapy allows us to reach the next level of anti-aging. HGH HRT is committed to 5 different concepts: HGH Replacement, exercise, nutrition, diet, and healthy sleeping habits.
Since time immemorial, scientists have searched for mechanisms to prolong youth. Now, it seems, after ages upon ages of searching for the Fountain of Youth, researchers are beginning to make ground on what was once believed to be a pipe dream. HGH is the cornerstone of that progress.
The first piece of research which showed the potential benefits of Human Growth Hormone HRT was presented in the New England Journal of Medicine. The clinical research split twenty one males (ranging from sixty to eighty) that had levels of IGF-1 lower than 350 IU/L into two separate groups. One group had twelve patients who would be treated, and the second group had nine participants who served as controls.
After six months of collecting data, proceeded by a second six month interval where the first group received injections of HGH, the study was concluded. The study produced promising results: treated patients developed stronger vertebrae, decreased fat, and increased muscle. All of the subjects tested were found to have boosted levels of Human Growth Hormone, as proven by increased levels of IGF-1.The placebo group, however, produced no positive change. Their muscle/fat ratio declined and they showed significant signs of aging.
To learn more about the scientific history of HGH, and to learn more about HGH HRT, we recommend “Grow Young with Human Growth Hormone,” by anti-aging physician Dr. Klatz.
Start therapy with modest doses – Remember, Human Growth Hormone is an effective and potent force upon the body. Taking more that prescribed does not lead to enhanced results. Initial dosage starts somewhere between 0.1 and 0.8 milligrams each day. You must realize that the desired result of Human Growth Hormone HRT is to boost internal levels of HGH a point that is ideal for your body. Going outside of normal range can be possibly risky.
Remain vigilant of potential side effects.
The truth about testosterone therapy
What is Testosterone?
Testosterone is a member of the hormonal family of androgens. Testosterone is the main factor which leads to normal male growth, and the development of primary and secondary sexual characteristics. This includes the development of the prostate, scrotum, testicles, and seminal vesicle-all of the organs of the reproductive system. It also leads to the development of other definably male traits such as stronger muscles and bones, body hair, lower levels of body fat, and the deepening of the voice.
In addition to this, healthy levels of testosterone in the body help retain positive mood, high energy, libido, and high fertility. Testosterone is produced in the testes through a chain of messages that start at the hypothalamus. This series of interconnections is known as the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis. GnRH is released by the hypothalamus which send a message to the pituitary in quick and brief firing patterns known as bursts. This causes the pituitary to release leutenizing hormone. This hormone then leads the testicular cells known as Leydig cells to finally produce testosterone.
The male body normally secretes between four and seven milligrams of testosterone each day. The level of testosterone secreted rapidly increases as puberty begins. As we age, the level of testosterone secreted slowly diminishes. Rapid loss of testosterone production begins after the age of forty. At forty, testosterone production is twenty percent of what it once was. This level drops by seventy percent of peak level by seventy.
Around fifty million U.S. Males suffer from testosterone hormone deficiency, but less than one million have actually sought therapy. This decrease of androgen male hormones with age leads to issues such as chronic fatigue, low sex drive, muscle shrinkage and weakness, and sexual dysfunction. Deficiencies in testosterone can occur for many reasons. Damage or diseases affecting the testicles, pituitary, or hypothalamus can hinder or stop the production of testosterone. This problem is also referred to as hypogonadism.
If testosterone deficiency occurs early in youth it can lead to genitals that are not fully developed and muscles and bones that are unnaturally weak. In addition to this, it can greatly diminish or prevent fertility.
Men who suffer from testosterone deficiency would benefit greatly from Testosterone Replacement Therapy, and in many cases other forms of hormone therapy as well. Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy can boost low levels of testosterone, and supercharge sex drive and ability. In addition, Testosterone HRT can strengthen lean muscle tissue and enhance the mineral density of the bones.
Many of the benefits of testosterone HRT also apply to women as well. Androgen HRT with hormones such as testosterone also help the body convert adipose fat into energy. This energy can then be used to enhance muscle mass and strength. Testosterone HRT can also have positive effects on mental well being, reducing anxiety and stabilizing moods. It can also have positive effects on cognition, memory, and decision making. It doesn’t matter if you wish to maintain and enhance your physical shape or benefit from the anti-aging capacity of Testosterone and HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy, you can accomplish both goals simultaneously!
Here is another chart that illustrates the steep drop-off of testosterone levels as men age:
Markers of Testosterone Deficiency
|Signs of Low Testosterone –|
Diminished stamina and energy…low libido…decrease in focus and memory…muscle weakness…unhealthy cholesterol levels…mood swings…loss of hair…depression.
Benefits of Testosterone HRT
Develops muscle mass-building…sharper mental focus…moods stabilize…a rumbling volcano of physical endurance and energy…
skyrocketing libido and unreal sexual ability…healthy levels of cholesterol…a powerful immune system
Low Testosterone Causes and Types
Hypogonadism leads to Testosterone Deficiency via the hypothalamic-pituitray-gonadal axis. There are three ways that the deficiency is characterized.
Primary Hypogonadism is caused by a malfunction of the testicles.
Secondary Hypogonadism is caused by a malfunction of the pituitary.
Tertiary Hypogonadism is the result of a malfunction of the hypothalamus.
Low Testosterone and/or hypogonadism can be the result of side effects of drugs, surgery, injury, or disease. Hormone deficiency can be acquired or congenital. That is all dependent upon the initial cause of the deficiency.
Congenital roots of hypogonadism:
- Klinefelter’s Syndrome, which is a form of primary hypogonadism caused by testicles which are not fully formed
- Kallman Syndrome, which is caused by GnRH secretion deficiency. This is a form of tertiary hypogonadism.
- Chryptorchidism, in which the testicles do no descend. This is a form of primary hypogonadism.
- Anorchia is a syndrome which leads to testicular atrophy. This is a form of primary hypogonadism. (vanishing testes syndrome; causing primary hypogonadism)
- General Hormonal Deficiencies can also lead to hypogonadism. These deficiencies are either secondary or tertiary in nature.
Acquired roots of hypogonadism:
- Brain or testicular tumors
- Trauma to the testicles
- Isolated Leuteneizing Hormone Deficiency (an example is Fertile Eunuch Syndrome)
- Infections such as mumps, syphilis, and meningitis
- Trauma to the brain
- Malformation of glands
- Damage due to surgery
Testosterone Treatment and Diagnosis
Symptoms and signs
The symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency are dependent upon the duration and/or the age at which Deficiency originates. Congenital forms of Testosterone deficiency usually results in underdeveloped testes which never drop. It can also result in genitalia which never fully differentiates between male and female parts. Developing Testosterone Deficiency around the age of puberty often results in the development of the breast tissues (gynecomastia), absent or sparse hair around the body and pubic area. It can also lead to underdeveloped muscle testes, and penis. Males who develop Testosterone Deficiency can experience low sex drive, sexual dysfunction, muscle atrophy, the loss of hair on the body, and mood disorders including depression
Complications of Testosterone Deficiency
Osteoporosis and muscle atrophy have been linked to Testicular Hypogonadism. Research has shown that distal and proximal weakness of the muscles was shown in just over two thirds of men who suffered from secondary or primary hypogonadism. The bone density of radial cortical, trabecular, and spinal bone are also reduced significantly among those males with low testosterone. Nearly one third of males with osteoporosis of the spine suffer from a deficiency in testosterone. One in three men with Testosterone Deficiency also suffer from bone density that is lower than normal across the body, leading to more injuries and/or fractures.
Diagnosis of Testosterone Deficiency
Blood work and serum testing is performed as a means to discover levels of Testoster, GnRH, and Luteinizing Hormone in the body. Males who have testicular deficiency who also have gonadotropin levels which are high or normal usually suffer from the primary form of hypogonadism. The issue is the result of testicular malfunction. Tertiary and secondary forms of hypogonadism are the result of the pituitary and hypothalamus usually lead to both low gonadotropin as well as testoesterone.
Other ways to test for Testosterone Deficiency are to use clomiphene citrate or GnRH as a means to produce a response that triggers the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axes. In very few circumstances, a biopsy of the testicles may also be necessary. This test is only undergone in situations where there is no sperm produced with ejaculation even though the testicles seem to have developed normally. A needle takes a sample of tissue from the testicles and is used as a mean to diagnose the sperm malfunction.
Testosterone Hormone Deficiency Treatment
The most effective means of treatment is Testosterone HRT. The deficiency duration and the age of the patient lead to different treatment option decisions. We have an array of options which provide a number of therapies to restore your youthful levels of testosterone. Our goal is to produce the best results for you with your safety in mind.
In adults, the goal in treatment is to maintain the secondary characteristics of the male sex. This includes maintaining high energy, stabilization of mood, and enhancement of strength. Other goals are the prevention of bone atrophy and restoration of general well-being. The primary forms of Testosterone delivery are by injection and the use of transdermal creams which absorb directly into the skin.
Today, creams and gels are quickly becoming the most opted-for forms of adult testosterone delivery. This form of delivery minimizes side-effects while also mimicking the body’s own cycle of testosterone secretion. The most commonly reported side effects of testosterone creams and gels are irritation, discomfort, and itching around the area of injection. Fewer males report temporary breast tissue growth, acne, and retention of fluids. Our clinic can also provide medications that can alleviate or remove these side effects.
Creams and gels deliver testosterone for twenty four hours when administered correctly. The cream needs to absorb into the skin before clothing is put on. Also, transdermal application must occur at least six hours before swimming or showering. Application directly to the genitals is incredibly discouraged.
Adults who suffer from Kallmann Syndrome are often prescribed HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin). This therapy can resolve both infertility and cryptochidism. Contact us today if you feel that any of these Hormone Replacement Therapies can help you or a loved one live a better life.
Injection of Testosterone is also a valid form of therapy, though used less frequently. Injections are administered intramuscularly. The problem with Testosterone Injections is that they do not mirror the body’s natural secretion times as well, and this leads to levels which are more erratic. When Testosterone levels fluctuate like this it can lead to disruption and interruption of sex drive, energy, and mood stabilization. Athletes and body builders prefer injection, however, because the injections provide fast results and the testosterone is administered in a more concentrated manner.
Our trained, professional and experienced staff have access to the safest and most popular types of testosterone injections, such as Propionate, Cypionate, and Nendrolone Decanoate.
Testosterone HRT’s ultimate goal is to restore medially normal testosterone levels. For the vast majority of patients, the various treatments are completely safe.
There are, however, some potential side effects. These include male baldness, retention of water, and development of the breast tissue (gynecomastia). Oral administration of Testosterone is not recommended because it can lead to liver complications. Also, using more Testosterone than the body produces can significantly enhance the risk of complication.
It should be noted that with excessive or prolonged Testosterone treatment that the body can begin to reduce natural production of testosterone. It can also lead to the reduced secretion of gonadotropin. This can also lead to a reduction in the manufacture of sperm and the atrophy of the testicles. It can also lead to erections that don’t recede and can sometimes be painful. This can easily be prevented, however! Testosterone is administered periodically to allow the body to retain its own natural level of production. After two or three months of treatment, the patient begins to take a different hormone like HCG which will help the testicles retain healthy functional levels.
After you contact us, we will sit down with you for an in-depth explanation of all possible treatment options. We believe that the more you understand about your treatment, the higher your odds for success are.
Types of Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy
Oil-based, slow release testosterone injection. Testosterone from a single injection stays in the system for two weeks. Supposedly leads to slightly higher chance of fluid retention which slows testosterone release. Estrogen levels in the blood stream can lead to the development of existing breast tissue leading to gynecomastia. Nolvadex is commonly co-prescribed to prevent gynecomastia. Injections occur weekly.
Testosterone injection which is oil-based. Unlike Cypionate, this form of testosterone is administered more often. This allows levels to remain more stable in the body. This can also lead to irritation and itching near the administration site, however. Propionate has the ability to produce gains in strength and size quite quickly, but can also lead to a higher risk of breast enlargment necessitating the need for drugs which counteract estrogen.
Nandrolone – Decanoate:
Form of testosterone that releases slowly over a long period of time. Weaker form of therapy that does not produce significant side effects normally. No water retention because no conversion of estrogen. It benefits the immune system, the joints, and reduces fat and increases muscle. Gains are slow but very significant over the course of two to three months.
Colorless and clear. Alcohol-based. Rubbed into the inner groin while avoiding the genitals. The gel is absorbed after a few minutes. The testosterone slowly leaves the skin cells and is distributed across the blood stream. It is very easy to maintain stable Testosterone levels with a gel.
Arimadex is not a steroid. It is the most popular Estrogen Blocker. When using stronger steroids it is very important to use estrogen blockers to prevent issues such as gynecomastia. Though Arimadex is effective, sometimes it can be too effective, reducing natural levels of estrogen. Because of this it is important to perform tests which monitor estrogen levels in the blood. Arimadex works by preventing steroids from aromatizing into estrogens.
Clomiphene Citrate (Clomid):
Clomid is a synthetic derivative of estrogen which displays similar properties to Nolvadex. It acts as both an antagonist and an agonist. Clomid blocks estrogens which cause Testosterone HRT side effects. It also leads to further secretion of Leutenizing Hormone and Follicle Stimulating Hormone which cause more testosterone to be secreted. Clomid is very useful toward the end of the administration cycle of Testosterone HRT, bringing natural levels of testosterone production back to normal. Clomid is prescribed to be used at fifty to one hundred milligrams each day in order to restore proper function.
Tamoxifen Citrate (Nolvadex):
Nolvadex is not a steroid, but does prevent excess estrogen production. It also enhances the secretion of Follicle Stimulating Hormone and Luteinizing Hormone. Increased production of the preceding hormones lead to increased production of testosterone. It maintains overall hormone balance. It produces positive gains for the muscles as well. Patients normally begin taking Nolvadex after three weeks of Testosterone HRT so that it can enhance natural production of testosterone as the effects of the injection decrease. The dose is between ten and thirty milligrams each day.
This blocker of estrogen should be used with HGH HRT in place of Clomid and Nolvadex. Those two supplements can hinder the effectiveness of HGH. Teslac also inhibits estrogen production via biofeedback while also boosting Follicle Stimulating Hormone and Luteinizing Hormone. It helps enhance the muscles while also maintaining proper hormonal balance.
Luteinizing Hormone Releaser
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin and Novarel
This medication is used to boost the manufacture of natural Testosterone. It can imitate Luteinizing Hormone, which sends a message to the testicles to produce more testosterone naturally. Excess Testosterone HRT can cause the testicles to decrease production, and drugs like Novarel and hormones like HCG prevent this from becoming a problem. Combining Novarel and HCG Therapy is very beneficial. HCG provides high levels of stimulation, restoring the function of the testes, while Novarel prevents estrogen build up and side effects.

What you need to know about Vitamin C
In one of his earliest explorations across the Atlantic ocean, Christopher Columbus noticed that many of his sailors appeared sick…very sick. They were lethargic, with aching limbs and debilitating fatigue. These symptoms were so pronounced that Columbus was ready to have the sick men walk the plank when a lush, verdant island suddenly appeared.
The sick men begged to be let out on the dry land, and Columbus agreed. Once there, the sailors devoured strange fruits and plants, and a miracle unfolded: they began to heal from whatever affliction had caused their symptoms.
Months later, on the way home to Europe, Columbus sailed by the island and watched in shock as the bearded white men greeted the ship. The same group that was dying months earlier had recovered completely. To commemorate the event, the island was named Curacao, which in Portuguese means “for cure.”
Eventually, the connection was made between the lack of certain foods and a disease called scurvy, the same disease that the stranded men on the island were stricken with. Further study revealed that vitamin C was the missing link that could prevent this devastating health problem.
Today we know more about vitamin C – much more. It is an absolute requirement for the human body to function, and without it you die, period. Here are some of the benefits of this amazing vitamin: Vitamin C…
Plays a huge role in collagen production, which promotes healthy skin
Strengthens the immune system so that resistance to disease is improved. Vitamin C is needed to protect the brain and spinal cord, to manufacture neurotransmitters, and for lipid and carbohydrate metabolism.
Helps fight off the symptoms of the common cold
Acts as a powerful anti-oxidant. Apples turn brown when cut open as a result of the oxidation process. The same process attacks our cells by vehicles known as free radicals. Vitamin C offers protection from this damage, since it can lose an electron to a free radical and remain stable. This process affects the ability of the free radical to inflict damage to our cells
May act as a fat-fighting weapon. One study showed that inactive men and women who started taking 500 mg of vitamin C daily experienced an average of a 13 pound weight loss.
As little as 2000 mg of vitamin C per day increases the effectiveness of a certain type of white blood cells known as neutrophils. These cells locate and annihilate disease-carrying germs and even attack free-floating cancer cells
Another study claims that “divided high doses” of oral Vitamin C can cause blood concentrations which have been shown to lower the risk of death from cancer by 57%
If you’re a smoker, there’s good news and bad news. The bad news? You’re still smoking. The good news? High amounts of Vitamin C in your blood can offer some protection from lung problems that so often result from smoking
Improves mood. Vitamin C has also been shown to have a mood-boosting effect. In a study of hospital patients who quite often are deficient in Vitamin C, the results were clear: Vitamin C supplements improved their mood. This makes logical sense, when we consider that one of the symptoms of scurvy is depression
Is beneficial to athletes. Many athletes who run marathons and engage in other forms of extreme, strenuous exercise are more prone to developing infections than those who exercise in a less intense manner. Studies find that 500-1000 mg of Vitamin C taken daily for several days prior to exhaustive physical activity may reduce infections by as much as 80%. Also, Vitamin C has helped reduce the duration and intensity of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). This may be due to the fact that damage to connective tissues surrounding muscles has been observed in those with DOMS. Because vitamin C is known to produce connective tissue, this vitamin may be helpful in reducing DOMS
Can reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack. As you age, you become more susceptible to abnormal blood clots in your arteries. Normal blood clotting is necessary to your survival, since without any clotting you would bleed to death from a simple scratch. But if you have a build-up of plaque in your arteries like so many older people, pieces of plaque can break free and cause abnormal clots. This can lead to heart attacks and strokes. The best indicator of excessive blood clotting is a substance called fibrinogen. In normal amounts, fibrinogen helps blood clots form. However, too much of it raises your risk of heart attack and stroke. Vitamin C is one of the most efficient ways to keep your level of fibrinogen below the danger zone
How to insure you’re getting enough Vitamin C
As with most vitamins and minerals, it all begins with what you eat. When we think of vitamin C, most people think of oranges and other citrus fruits. This is certainly a step in the right direction. But many are unaware that bell peppers, broccoli and Brussels sprouts contain more vitamin C than oranges. And papaya is the undisputed king, packing a wallop of more than twice the amount of vitamin C than oranges.
Also, don’t forget about other great sources of vitamin C: strawberries, pineapple, cantaloupe, chilli peppers, red peppers, green peppers, cherries, spinach and cauliflower. Just remember than cooking can destroy a lot of this all-important nutrient. Therefore, strive to eat them fresh, or at least steamed.
However, we can’t always rely on our food. Processing takes a toll on Vitamin C, as well as the earlier mentioned cooking. Also, due to soil depletion and drugged livestock, our food is far less nutritious than a mere 50 years ago. In fact, much of our food is nutritionally worthless.
Our Paleolithic ancestors were for the most part free of the crippling diseases that we all-too-often suffer from today. But they ate food that grew in soils that were much richer in vitamins, minerals and nutrients than today’s soil. This is in large part due to the huge agricultural companies (Big Agra) mad quest for profits, which has resulted in overuse of the soil and genetic engineering of our food…at the cost of the nutritional quality of just about everything we eat…including our vitamin C intake.
Want proof? Check out these numbers:
According to a 2005 report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), 31% of Americans have an inadequate intake of vitamin C
Another study found that our vegetables have on average lost about 20% of their vitamin C content.
According to The Bottom Line’s Daily Health News, a century ago the odds of dying from heart disease were 1 in 24. Now they have skyrocketed to 1 in 7
The same study also looked at cancer, and the results were depressingly similar. A century ago, the odds of dying from cancer were 1 in 49. Now they have jumped up to 1 in 7…identical to heart disease.
Therefore, there is a need for vitamin C supplements. The next question is: “What is the right dosage?” Good question.
For starters, most researchers who have seriously studied this question agree that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of 90 mg per adult male and 75 mg for adult females is pathetically inadequate. Remember that humans lack the ability to synthesize their own Vitamin C. Other mammals like guinea pigs, chimpanzees and apes have this same lack of ability, and routinely take in 20 to 40 times the amount of Vitamin C daily when adjusted for body weight.
Keeping this in mind, the Vitamin C Foundation gives a general recommendation of 1,000 to 4,000 mg per day. If you are healthy, the lower end of the spectrum may be okay. On the other hand, if you are suffering from a serious disease, you might consider exceeding these guidelines.
If you experience an upset stomach or acid reflux after taking vitamin C as ascorbic acid, the buffered form (Mineral ascorbates, Ester C) will work just fine. Otherwise, the more common ascorbic acid form will work.
How much is too much? Your body will let you know. Vitamin C is water-soluble. As opposed to fat-soluble vitamins, any excess Vitamin C will be flushed out through urine. Also, Vitamin C is very low toxic. If you overdo it, the result will be digestive problems (diarrhea, nausea, vomiting), headache or fatigue. These symptoms, while uncomfortable, are usually not serious, and will cease when the dosage of Vitamin C is reduced.
No discussion of vitamin C would be complete without acknowledging the contributions of the Nobel Prize-winning scientist Linus Pauling. Pauling believed strongly in high daily doses of vitamin C, and he didn’t just advocate it for others; he practiced what he preached, and lived to the ripe old age of 93. Pauling persevered in his uncompromising advocacy of vitamin C, in spite of the bitter, acrimonious and at times personal attacks and ridicule that he was subjected to by the medical establishment.
Pauling was a strong proponent of vitamin C for treatment of cancer, heart disease, infection, prevention of the common cold, disease prevention and anti-aging. In fact, Pauling publicized the work of Frederick Robert Klenner, M.D. Dr. Klenner was an early advocate of intravenous vitamin C as a treatment for cancer and as an antibiotic.
Sadly, the medical establish fought Pauling tooth and claw…and his name today is still controversial, which says volumes about his influence. They conducted several studies that allegedly proved that intravenous vitamin C therapy was useless. The fact that the doses of vitamin C used in these “independent studies” were too low to be effective was ignored, as was the effect of what the inexpensive vitamin C treatment would have on the physicians income.
The medical establishment has long been reluctant is rock the boat with unconventional approaches, and it shows with their sanctimonious dismissal of vitamin C. If no current medical books or studies have described vitamin C as a cure for any disease, most physicians will not even discuss it. Also, physicians are not as well-versed in the science of nutrition as many believe they are.
However, the effectiveness of antibiotics has diminished, due to decades of over-reliance on them. As a result, several new and horrifying “super bugs” have emerged that are resistant to just about every standard antibiotic available. We may be entering into a new and frightening post-antibiotic age, where even the traditional medical establishment will be forced to take another look at intravenous vitamin C as an antibiotic. Time will tell if Pauling’s ideas will be vindicated.
In the meantime, prevention is the key. Adding this powerful, convenient and inexpensive supplement to your disease-fighting and health preserving arsenal needs to be at the top of your list. The benefits are numerous, and the risk is miniscule.

Mark Cuban Weighs In On HGH Healing Potential
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is not known as a mere dreamer. He is a visionary who acts upon his ideas, and has had spectacular success in many different areas.
So when he turned his attention to the possible healing effects of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) for athletes recovering from injuries, he didn’t just talk about it. As usual, he has taken action – massive action – by funding a potential university study on the issue.
“It’ll be a two-year study that applies HGH to injuries preoperative to postoperative injury recovery” Cuban said before a recent Mavs-Los Angeles Clippers game at the Staples Center.
“So if you’re able to retain more muscle going into an operation because you’re working out and HGH helps your muscle. And you’re able to regain it faster, then we cut the recovery time.
“And it’ll be geared around one type of injury that has hundreds of thousands of examples a year. So we’ll be able to do a placebo environment without hurting anybody, right? So here’s the way we do it now. And here’s how we do it with HGH. So hopefully it will accelerate recovery.”
Cuban was silent about details, since the study is pending approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). He stated that the university planning to do the study is a highly respected medical school, but he didn’t name the school.
He was also unable to provide a time-frame for the beginning of the study, again due to the need for government agencies approval and the paperwork that accompanies the project.
Cuban first brought up the issue of HGH use for injured athletes at the NBA Board of Governors meetings last October. At the time, he recommended that the idea of keeping HGH on the league’s banned-substance list should be re-evaluated, with the possibility of allowing use by players recovering from injuries.
The NBA has been hit with several injuries this season, and the loss of key players is devastating to the teams involved. In addition, the fans suffer as well, since the absence of their favorite players makes the games less interesting, and attendance drops.
In spite of the reality that a comprehensive HGH rehabilitation program may be years away, the Board of Governors has given their approval to begin the research. Once the research is completed, and a possible and practical solution is available, they will then discuss the issue further.
Cuban said that once the discussion became public, several universities came forward to make proposals to him. “I just want to know what reality is” Cuban stated. “And if we can improve recovery time, obviously that’s a plus for all of us, but there was never any basis in fact for not allowing it for use [while recovering from injuries]. It was all marketing. So let’s find out. Let’s find out what’s real and not real.”
HGH has been known to be helpful in several ways and is considered a comprehensive solution to many common injuries. NBA players, team owners and fans are anxious to see if HGH can make a beneficial difference in the NBA.
Do you need injectable hgh? (Video 35)
Research scientists continue to discover new benefits to vitamin D3. They have also discovered that vitamin D3 is technically not a vitamin, but a hormone…a very powerful hormone that can play many vital roles in maintaining your good health. This recent research has lead to the conclusion that vitamin D3 is more important than we ever believed. Let’s take a look at what vitamin D3 is, and the role it plays in your body.
One difference between vitamin D3 and other vitamins is this: We, along with others in the mammal kingdom, have the ability to create Vitamin D3 by exposing ourselves to direct sunlight. This was first noticed shortly after vitamin D was discovered in 1920. The decade of the 1920′s ushered in the Industrial Revolution, and witnessed large numbers of people moving into cities and working indoors, in dark, grimy factories. This contrasted greatly with their former rural work outdoors, where they were exposed to sunlight.
At the time, scientists were urgently seeking a cure for rickets, a debilitating bone disease that primarily affects children. Researchers noticed that those who lived in areas with less sunlight had a much higher rate of rickets than those in sunny climates.
The hypothesis was formulated, tested and proven: vitamin D is essential to the bone health of everyone, especially children. And the best source of this vitamin was thought to be the sun.
But there are a few problems with this sunlight exposure approach. For starters, scientists have established a direct link between excess sunlight and skin cancer.
Second, for those people who live in the northern latitudes, getting enough direct sunlight in the middle of a freezing winter is not an easy task. As you move farther from the equator, the angle of the sun increases. Why is this important? Because this results in less Ultraviolet-B rays that help you create adequate vitamin D levels. This is especially true in the winter months. Therefore, supplements are needed to fill in the gap.
Make sure you take the right kind of Vitamin D
Before we go any further, it is important to make crystal clear the type of vitamin D that we are referring to. There are two types of vitamin D available in supplements; vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) and vitamin D2 (Ergocalciferol). The distinction is simple. Vitamin D2 is synthesized by plants, while vitamin D3 is synthesized by humans when ultra-violet-B rays from sunlight hit our skin.
Therefore, vitamin D3 is the more natural type of vitamin D. In addition to being more natural, vitamin D3 converts much faster than vitamin D2, and D2 has a shorter shelf life.
The take-away is simple. Vitamin D2, while most certainly better than nothing, should not be your first choice of a vitamin D supplement. Whenever possible, stick with vitamin D3.
How common is Vitamin D deficiency?
More common that imagined. According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, in 2008 vitamin D deficiency was recognized as a pandemic! With the dire warnings from dermatologists about the risk of skin cancer due to sunlight exposure, we are getting less vitamin D than ever. In addition, very few foods naturally contain vitamin D.
A French study concluded that 14 percent of otherwise healthy adults had low levels of vitamin D…very low. Another study, this time in America, measured the vitamin D levels of medical professionals – and discovered that among those who had not taken a vitamin D supplement, an astonishing 42 percent of them had a vitamin D shortage by winter’s end. Among those tested who did supplement with vitamin D, the shortage rate was reduced to 11%.
Here are a few more categories of folks that are at an elevated risk of vitamin D deficiency:
- Children, regardless of age
- Pregnant women
- Obese people, and those who have had bariatric surgery
- Anyone with liver and kidney problems
- People with dark skin
- Anyone with osteoporosis, or an elderly person who has a history of falls or has had a bone fracture.
So, now you can see the need for this vitamin, and its importance. Simply put, Vitamin D3 just about does it all! From the anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties, to keeping your brain neurons firing on all cylinders and fighting depression, the benefits just keep on coming. Let’s look at a few more things this miracle vitamin does:
- According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, vitamin D is essential for the “formation, growth, and repair of bones and for normal calcium absorption and immune function” and there are studies to suggest that “higher levels of vitamin D in the blood are associated with reduced risks of colorectal cancer; however, the research results overall have been inconsistent.”
- Prevention of osteoporosis. Vitamin D helps us absorb calcium and phosphorous, which play a crucial role in maintaining the strength and integrity of our bones.
- Strengthens the immune system. Immune system cells have structures with vitamin D receptors. Therefore, as a result of vitamin D deficiency, your immune system is weakened, and the risk of infection dramatically increases. Also, vitamin D3 protects the body from respiratory infections, and can help the body defend against tuberculosis. Finally, vitamin D3 is a safe and effective way to prevent and/or lessen the effects of the flu virus.
- Lessen heart attack risk. A study published in 2012 concluded that low levels of vitamin D3 may increase the risk of heart attack and early death. In fact, a 2010 presentation at The American College of Cardiology demonstrated that low levels of vitamin D in patients with cardiovascular disease were approximately 30 percent less likely to die if they supplemented with vitamin D3. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death, worldwide. Vitamin D3 is a weapon of protection to add to your arsenal.
- Maintaining a healthy body weight. According to research carried out at The Medical College of Georgia, vitamin D plays a large role in maintaining a healthy body weight.
- Reduces the risk of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Multiple Sclerosis is far less common the nearer you get to the equator, since there is more sunlight.
- Reduces the risk of many types of diseases. Cancer (colon, prostate, breast and pancreatic), autoimmune diseases, (diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis) and Crohn’s disease occur less in a person with adequate vitamin D levels than those with vitamin D deficiency.
- Raise testosterone levels in healthy adult males, according to a recent university study published in “Hormone and Metabolic Research”. This is especially important for older men, who are suffering from a gradual reduction of their testosterone levels due to aging.
How to make sure you are getting Vitamin D3′s benefits
One way to insure you are getting an adequate amount of vitamin D is the way Mother nature intended: the sun. 10-15 minutes exposure is enough to get the vitamin D supply that you need, especially in the summer months. There is certainly no need to risk developing skin cancer by continually staying in the sun longer than that.
As with so many other health concerns, the food you eat plays a vital role in getting a sufficient supply of Vitamin D3. Here is a brief list of foods that contain vitamin D:
- Fish: Sardines, mackerel, tuna, catfish and salmon
- Egg yolks
- Raw milk
Finally, consider supplementing. The recommended dosage depends upon how severe the deficiency is – and this can be discovered by a blood test.
Currently, the U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) is 400 International Units (IU’s). Considering the fact that on a hot, sunny summer afternoon, it is possible to receive a dose of 20,000 IU’s of vitamin D in as little as 15 minutes of laying in the sun, the RDA seems a tad bit anemic. A minimum dosage of vitamin D should be in the range of 2,000 to 3,000 IU’s per day. This is especially true in the northern latitudes during the winter months.
There are very few supplements that the majority of researchers say that almost everyone should take…and vitamin D is one of them.
In closing, here is a quote from Dr. Michael F. Holick, MD, PhD, professor of medicine, physiology and biophysics at the University of Boston Medical Center:
“Vitamin D doesn’t treat diseases; vitamin D is there to help prevent chronic illnesses.”
Health has been described as “90 percent prevention, 10 percent cure”, and this has been proven time and time again. The miracle protection offered by vitamin D3 is safe, easy and inexpensive. Your continued good health may depend upon you taking advantage of it.

Have You Tried HGH Release Sprays?
And HGH Release Pills?
And Are You Wondering Why They Didn’t Work?
Keep reading…And Find Out WHY
You’ve seen the ads. You’ve heard the stories. Perhaps they made you excited about the promises that Human Growth Hormone (HGH) release sprays and pills could deliver to you…and maybe you even tried them.
Guess what? You’re still disappointed. Sad to say, you see and feel absolutely no difference. Nothing. Nada. Zippo. No energy explosion, no fat cells magically melting down and vanishing. No reversal of aging’s devastating, insidious effects. Understandably, you feel like you’ve been sold a bill of goods.
And you were…here’s why:
The dosage amount in HGH sprays and pills is minute. In fact, it is so small that any benefits felt are largely due to the placebo effect. Most sprays contain less than 30,000 nanograms of growth hormone, which is a fraction of what you would receive from injectable HGH
Even if the dosage were far larger, there is another problem with the HGH release sprays. The membrane of the throat is constructed to rape al most substances. This means that an oral HGH release spray has about as much chance of passing through the throat membrane as “a camel going through the eye of a needle.”
Switching to HGH release pills is also not the answer. Here, we again encounter the same problem: absorption (or lack thereof). The is due to stomach acids devouring the HGH before it can get into the bloodstream. Think about this: some stomach acids can actually eat through metals! So how in the world could any HGH in pill form survive? Answer: IT CAN’T.
So, if all this is true, why is there still such a proliferation of ads, touting the miracle changes that HGH release pills and sprays can deliver? Because this selling hype works on innocent folks who have not studied the issue, and are looking for a quick and convenient fix. Many of these web sites look like the real deal, complete with actors and models posing in doctor’s white coats. Don’t join this crowd of victims!
As with so many things, there are no shortcuts to be found. There is one way…and one way only…to obtain the results you are looking for: Injectable Human Growth Hormone. In contrast to the above two methods, HGH injection actually works – and delivers the benefits you have been hoping for.
“I have went down the road of sprays and pills. At first, I thought they were working, as they seemed to give me more endurance for my workouts. But I’m convinced that it was mostly in my mind. There were no long-lasting results, and I had nothing to compare these approaches to. However, after starting injections of growth hormone, I now know the difference between the fakes and the real deal. Don’t waste your time and money going down a blind alley. Get the real thing, and see and feel the difference!”
Benny H, Boston, MA
Why? Because the injectable form of HGH goes directly into your system, and goes to work IMMEDIATELY. Since HGH by injection bypasses the throat’s membrane and the acids in the stomach, none of it is wasted. The incredible, astounding results speak for themselves.
Don’t let a fear of needles prevent you from trying the only method of HGH that works. The needles we provide you with are short, similar to what diabetics use routinely, every day. Also, the injections are painless. You will receive detailed instructions from our staff on how to make this process quick, easy and simple. For a detailed explanation of the injection process, contact us today.
So that’s the story. Now you know that the HGH release sprays and pills simply do not produce the results that they promise…and now you know why. You also know what does work: Injectable HGH. But knowing is one thing. Taking action is something else entirely. None of these miraculous benefits can happen to you unless you contact us! Don’t waste another minute in idle, useless day-dreaming about the results you want.
Contact us…not tomorrow, not next week, not next month, or not next year. CONTACT US NOW!
Regardless of your age – old, young or somewhere in-between – the time to get serious about extending your life and preserving your good health is NOW. The bad news: aging progresses a little, day-by-day. The good news: there are steps you can take to slow and at times completely halt the aging process. These are actions you can begin to take not years from now, but today!
And it’s not a minute too soon for you to confront aging. Think about this. We have never had to face the hidden, insidious challenges to our health that we currently do…and from many different sources. For example, how many people read the labels on the packages of their food? And how many really understand what those lines of chemicals really mean? Probably very few.
But everyone should read those labels, and understand what they are putting in their bodies. Also, what about the huge pharmaceutical companies (Big Pharma)? They hold out the promise of seemingly miraculous cures. Do these promises hold up? At times, yes. At other times, they fall short, with harmful and serious consequences.
The point is this: there has never been a time in recorded human history that we have had access to such an incredible amount of information. Therefore, we have no excuse for not doing the research. That’s the good news.
The bad news? There has also never been a time in recorded human history that we have needed to do this research AS NOW! We – all of us – are subjected to a non-stop, 24/7 advertising campaign for products that will supposedly lead to health and happiness. Just take this pill…or eat this food…and conveniently ignore the fact that the promoter of these miracles has their financial interests at heart, sometimes at the expense of your health and money.
To compound the problem, the pace of life is becoming increasingly quicker. Time seems to be moving faster then it ever did, and the day-to-day struggles of daily life leave so many people too weary or otherwise preoccupied to research the things that are so vitally important to them.
So, what to do? The key is getting back to basics, and taking actions that anyone can begin, immediately. Let’s take a look at the steps you can take to add years of healthy, vibrant living to your lifespan.
People disagree on many things. But there is one thing that is almost certain to get universal agreement: the fact that we are too sedentary, too over-weight, and just too plain lazy to get off the couch and get moving.
Granted, for true couch potatoes that have been inactive for long periods of time, the task of swinging into action can seem daunting. But keep this in mind: you do not have to be an Olympic-level athlete to get the benefits of regular exercise. Begin slowly, and work up your intensity level gradually. Before you know it, regular workouts will become a habit.
As for the type of exercise program you follow, remember that there are several components of fitness: strength, cardiovascular capacity, flexibility and balance. A good mix of weight-lifting, good old-fashioned body-weight calisthenics, aerobics and stretching will cover all bases. The techniques of the correct and safe ways to workout are widely available through personal trainers, books, magazines, videos and the Internet. Check out many things, then decide what fits your personal situation (time available, your goals, your present fitness level, etc.). Then absorb what is useful, and discard the rest.
In addition to the many well-known benefits of regular exercise (burning fat, building muscle, stress reduction, better sleep and circulation, more energy), there is another lesser-known benefit that just may be the most important one of all: exercise prevents the shortening of the protective segments of your DNA called telomeres. Here’s why this is so important:
Telomerase is the enzyme that helps to restore telomeres, which are the biological clocks at the ends of your DNA.Without getting too scientific, here’s how this works: every time your cells divide, your telomeres shorten. Eventually, this causes your cells to stop dividing. The result? DEATH! Another analogy is that telomeres resemble the plastic ends of your shoelaces. They protect your shoestrings, and prevent them from fraying and falling apart. When they are worn out, trouble. This is exactly what happens to worn-out, shortened telomeres.
The take-away? We must slow down the loss of telomeres to slow aging. Companies are in a mad scramble to produce a high-quality, yet affordable supplement to provide this desperately needed protection. But until that process is perfected, exercise is by far-and-away the best way to prevent the shortening of telomeres.
Enough said. No more talk. The time to get off the couch is NOW!
You Are What You Eat
There is an old cliché in the health and fitness words: “You can’t out train and out pill-pop bad eating habits.” How true this is. Just look around. More Americans are obese now than ever. There are many possible explanations for this sad state of affairs. The need for convenience that is ever-present for so many folks has resulted in an explosion of fast-food outlets, which play a huge role in our ever-expanding waistlines.
How about asking your physician for nutritional advise? Is that a good idea? Maybe. But maybe not. Doctor’s are well-trained in the latest surgical life-saving procedures, and are up-to-date on the latest miracle prescription drugs. But just like the rest of us, they have only 24 hours in the day. To keep up with the latest advances in medicine is at best a full-time job, and at worst it is nearly impossible. So many busy physicians overlook the importance of nutrition.
Also, there is the confusion factor. In their never-ending quest for profits and satisfied shareholders, the giant food companies (Big Agra) have loaded much of our food supply with “who-knows-what’s-in-them” additives. Needless to say, these additives are not designed to enhance your health. The emphasis is on good taste and preservation, which equals more profits. Here are a few of the more flagrant examples:
Trans-fats. This monstrosity was born during the “saturated fats are horrible” craze of the 1970′s and 80′s. Initially, they were touted as a heart-friendly alternative that combined good taste with cholesterol lowering ability…what’s not to like? Just this: trans-fats do indeed lower cholesterol…but the wrong kind – the “good cholesterol” that protects us from heart attacks. Studies have shown that trans-fats may have been directly linked to as many as 100,000 fatal heart attacks annually. Prodded by public outcry, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) finally is moving to ban this killer. But they are a day late and a dollar short, since there are loopholes like re-naming them (“partially hydrogenated” “hydrogenated” and “fractionated”). Therefore, read labels, and avoid this stuff like the plague.
High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS). Like something out of a late-night horror movie, this Frankenstein-like additive is a recent man-made addition to our food. The problem? Our bodies have a hard time recognizing HFCS, which means it is harder to digest, and adds more calories than regular sugar. The result? Obesity, diabetes, liver problems, metabolic syndrome, and other health nightmares. Thanks to the generosities of Congress included in each new version of the government farm bill, HFCS is cheaper than sugar…at least, in the short term. Long term, the costs of suffering from this insidious poison are incalculable. As with trans-fats, read labels and avoid this hideous toxin.
Eat Fresh. A recent study from the University College of London has concluded that those who eat seven or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day cut their risk of death and serious illness by 42% compared to those who get far less fresh produce, or none at all. This doesn’t mean that anything less than seven servings of fresh fruits and vegetables a day is useless. Just start adding more now, and go from there. It’s time to get tough. Simple sugars, bad carbs, bad fats, processed foods and excess sodium are not found in natural foods. Therefore, keep them to a bare minimum. Or better still, cut them out completely.
Remember this: we are literally digging our graves with our knives, spoons and forks. But we can use these same utensils to dig our way out. The choice is yours, so choose wisely.
Don’t smoke, or abuse alcohol and prescription and illegal street drugs
This is really in the “DUH” category. The evidence of the health damage that smoking causes is so overwhelming, so proven and so all-pervasive that it is really perhaps the only topic in the fields of traditional and integrative medicine and alternative health that virtually everyone agrees with, totally and unconditionally. And that says a lot. Don’t smoke, period!
Likewise, there are many documented examples of the ruin resulting from alcohol and drug abuse. The financial, social, health and legal consequences of this abuse speaks for itself. Again, enough said. This is a dead-end street that is avoidable. So don’t drive down it.
Take Quality Nutritional Supplements
Flash back one-hundred years. Most families could go out their back door and pick fresh fruit, get access to fresh vegetables, lean meat protein, home grown dairy and toxin-free well-water. The air was clean, clear and pollution-free…the soil was rich with nutrients, as was the food grown in it…and the food was produced and consumed locally. In short, eating nutritious foods was really all that was needed to stay healthy. Our ancestors were, for the most part, free from the disease epidemics that are running rampant today.
But that was then – and this is now. Fast-forward to today. Soil depletion due to over-planting in the name of profits (thanks, Big Agra), laboratory created synthetic chemical additives to our food (thanks again, Big Agra) and steroid-laced livestock (one again, stand up and take a bow, Big Agra), our food is not anywhere near as nutritious as it was then. And we are paying a terrible price by consuming all of those empty, fat-producing calories.
This is why we need vitamin supplements. Consider adding a quality multivitamin and mineral supplement as a nutritional insurance policy. No matter what, it is very difficult to eat correctly every meal, every day. And even if we could, we would still need nutritional insurance for the reasons mentioned above.
Look for a balanced product, try a few different ones and go from there. In addition, individual vitamins like B, C, D and E should be considered, as well as magnesium. The world of supplements has made exponential progress in quality in the last few decades, and more and better things are coming, due to new research discoveries.
Exercise your brain as well as your body
Think about this: there is no point in staying healthy and living a long time if you are suffering from dementia and/or Alzheimer’s disease. According to the Alzheimer’s association
Over 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease.
Every 67 seconds someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s.
Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States.
There are approximately 500,000 people dying each year because they have Alzheimer’s.
1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia.
In 2013, 15.5 million caregivers provided an estimated 17.7 billion hours of unpaid care valued at more than $220 billion.
Alzheimer’s disease is serious…deadly serious. But the goods news is this: there are steps you can take to prevent this debilitating affliction from robbing you of your humanity. Here’s how, and why:
As recently as 40 years ago, the common knowledge was that the number of brain cells was fixed. Your IQ was what you were born with. At best, you could only hope to not lose too many IQ points to aging. And, if you were unfortunate enough to suffer a brain injury, forget about it. The damage was considered permanent, and there was no way you could come back.
However, the science of Neurology has advanced by leaps and bounds. We now know that it is possible with correct brain exercises and stimulation, proper nutrition, staying physically fit and the use of supplements and nootropics (smart drugs and cognitive enhancers) to allow our brains to create new cells, and add connections between them!
Synapses are the connections between the nerve cells in our brain, and these connects must be functioning as intended to allow our brain cells to communicate with each other. This process is dependent on the exchange of chemical signals, called neurotransmitters. As we age, or if we suffer injury, disease or even non use, the cells and synapses can breakdown. This may lead to a host of developments, none of them pleasant: mood swings, depression, impaired cognitive functioning, memory loss, intellectual stagnation, lower IQ, lowered problem-solving skills, and, if things get worse, dementia and/or Alzheimer’s disease.
That’s what you are up against. But don’t despair. Brain deterioration is not inevitable. As mentioned earlier, there are steps you can take to prevent Alzheimer’s;
Follow the earlier recommendations. Exercise, correct nutrition, staying hydrated, avoiding toxins and the right vitamin supplements are your foundation – your first line of defense
Control stress. Long-term stress levels can wreck havoc on your brain synapses. Meditation, learn to relax, enjoying hobbies and keeping things in their proper perspective can work wonders for lowering your stress levels.
Keep your brain active with new challenges and constant mental stimulation. Use it or lose it. You’ve heard that cliché about your muscles. Your brain is no different. Watching mind-numbing television and doing the same things over and over again will result in a mental rut. To stop that from happening, keep the brain stimulated. Leaning to play a musical instrument, speaking and reading a foreign language, doing puzzles, reading about new topics and meeting new people can all combine to help you stay sharp.
Consider Nootropics. Nootropicsare smart drugs and natural substances such as vitamins and herbs that have been shown to improve mental functions like memory and concentration, along with protecting the brain from physical and chemical injury. The racetam family (piracetam, oxyracetam, aniracetam, etc.) were the first nootropics, and have been called “pharmacologically safe” drugs. Ginkgo Biloba, Bacopa, DMAE, Choline, Centrophenoxine, Vinpocetine, Huperzine A and Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) are over-the-counter substances that can increase blood flow to the brain and increase memory. Modafinil is a prescription drug that has also shown promise in increasing focus, alertness and concentration. As with all new supplements, start slow and closely monitor your body’s reactions.
Stay Strong spiritually and keep a positive outlook.
A wise sage once said that “Life is 10% what happens to you, and 90% how you react to it.” Studies have shown that maintaining a positive approach about aging can add an average of seven and a half years to your lifespan. Why? The answer to that is uncertain. But many researchers see a link between a positive attitude and the will to live.
Focusing on the positive and believing in something greater is a winning attitude. Dwelling on negativity and surrounding yourself with negative types has the opposite effect. As with everything else mentioned so far, the choice is totally in your hands.
Don’t discount the importance of deep, restorative sleep
The more researchers study sleep, the more benefits of sleep they discover. Conversely, they also continue to learn more about the debilitating effects of chronic sleep deprivation. From keeping your energy levels high and your mind working efficiently, to keeping your weight under control and resting your internal organs to allow them to function optimally, the importance of sleep cannot be overemphasized.
Humans evolved over millions of years with diurnal sleeping patterns: sleeping during the dark, and being active in the daylight. Science has confirmed that this is one of the most important components of health. So, if you have been cutting corners and “burning the candle at both ends”, make getting the right amount of sleep a priority that will morph into a habit…a habit that will add years of healthy living to your life.
Here are a few ideas that will help you get the quality sleep that is so important to your health:
Sleep in complete darkness. One of the benefits of deep, uninterrupted sleep is the release of a hormone called Melatonin, which also causes release of Growth Hormone. Sleeping in darkness maximizes the release of these two vital, anti-aging hormones. Conversely, sleeping with even dim lights on will result in less release of these two twin powerhouse hormones. In addition, beware of the electromagnetic fields (EMF’s) glowing from the electrical devices in your room. These suppress these two hormones as much as light.
Don’t eat or drink too much liquid before going to bed. Both of these activities can disrupt your sleep, and raise your insulin levels, resulting in (as mentioned earlier), less melatonin and growth hormone release.
Consider supplements that promote sleep naturally. Sleeping pills work. But the side effects (drowsiness the next day, sleepwalking, trouble concentrating, increasing dependency on the pills, etc.) can easily outweigh the benefits. Supplements like Melatonin, Valerian Root and Tryptophan can help you fall asleep SAFELY.
Protect your skin
Our skin is the largest organ in the human body, and it is also the most abused. An often overlooked fact is that skin care starts internally. The right foods and staying hydrated are the foundation of good internal skin hygiene, and there are also supplements that will hydrate the skin from within.
In addition, limit direct sunlight exposure to 10-15 minutes. This will give you all of the vitamin D you need, and should not cause skin damage. Aging skin gradually loses its ability to retain water. A natural moisturizer called Na-PCA has the ability to draw moisture from the atmosphere. In fact, if Na-PCA is sprayed into a small dish and left out in the desert sun, within a few short hours it will be filling up with water. Na-PCA is a great aftershave for men, and it works equally well for women.
Finally, don’t smoke. One picture is worth a thousand words:
There has never been a time like the present that you have had the opportunity to take charge of your life and health. What we’re talking about here is gigantic advances in the potential to dramatically increase your life’s quality and quantity. But it won’t happen by just thinking about it.

At last! A revolution in longevity, health and astonishing medical discoveries is happening RIGHT NOW…and you are invited to join.
Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
A medical miracle
You may have discovered our website by search engine…or a recommendation from one of our satisfied clients…or your personal physician…or a link from another website. Regardless, you’re here. And if you have been anxiously searching for the keys to a much longer life, without the pain, maladies and the seemingly inevitable degeneration that aging brings…if you are excited by the amazing breakthrough’s in the fields of anti-aging and integrative medicine…then this is the opportunity you have been dreaming about.
Join the HRT revolution
Maybe you’ve heard about Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), but were unsure of how to go about doing it correctly, conveniently and safely. Our years of experience are at your service to make sure you receive the absolute best, premium, first-class service in the world. Here’s a brief guide to how we operate…and why we are the team you need to be on.
Our Anti-Aging clinics are located in all 50 states and U.S. Territories for your convenience. No matter where you are, we are there for you. No more time-consuming, inconvenient, long-distance journeys. The odds are that many of our nationwide network physicians are located close to you, maybe no more than an hour away.
All of our physicians who are members of our nationwide network are carefully screened. They have completed rigorous training in the most modern techniques of Life Extension and Hormone Replacement Therapy. In addition, they are required to enroll in continuing education to remain fully certified in Hormone Replacement Therapy Prescription.
In fact, we are proud to state that all members of our network have at least ten years of Hormone Replacement Therapy, Cell Regeneration, Integrative Medicine, Longevity and Anti-Aging professional experience. They are also members of the Better Business Bureau.
Finally, all of our physicians are members of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. This organization provides Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapies, including Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone Therapy, as well as Integrative Medical programs that combat the hormonal deficiencies that cause premature aging.
What this means to you
You will work closely with a highly-trained and experienced physician, who has the ability to tailor-make a Hormone Replacement Therapy program that is specifically designed just for you! We have no no “cookie-cutter”, one-size-fits-all regimes that you may have experienced elsewhere. We are different. How?
Because we begin by listening to you. We then look over your unique situation with a magnifying glass and fully discuss the treatment options that are available to you. Then, and only then, do we proceed. We do this by creating a custom general Hormone Replacement Therapy plan, or Human Growth Hormone administration or a Testosterone Treatment Therapy that is developed for you…and just for you. We have total confidence that we can provide the blueprint for your success.
Is Hormone Replacement Therapy for you?
Are you over 30 years of age? Does the slightest physical exertion like climbing the stairs leave you short of breath? Do you feel like you have lost a step or two, and as a result, are you reluctant to play any type of sport? Do you no longer have the same animal sex drive that made your youth so heart-skipping exciting? Are you having trouble remembering routine, everyday things that never used to be a problem? Are you having trouble falling asleep, and wake up constantly, so that you never get the deep, restorative sleep that you so desperately need? Does it take longer and longer amounts of time to recover from minor illness and injuries?
If the answer to any of these questions is “YES”, then stop complaining about it! Do something about it. Give us the chance to push these problems out of your life…and let you get back to the way you used to feel. You deserve better than this. Now is the time to let us show you the path to health, pain-free longevity and youthful exuberance.
Your First Step
After you have contacted us and set up your initial consultation, we sit down with you for a one-on-one detailed discussion with one of our experienced anti-aging counselors. This allows us to fully understand your individual situation. Also, we encourage you to ask questions about everything and anything that pertains to our methods and treatments. We guarantee that you will be completely informed as to your Hormone Replacement Therapy.
We will arrange for diagnostic blood testing and a full physical exam. The blood work will be rushed by Federal Express in overnight delivery to LabCorp, a experienced, professional and highly efficient blood diagnostic company. The technicians at LabCorp will spend the next few days going over your blood sample from every possible angle. They will then send us a four-page analysis of both your blood work and your physical exam.
We will also need your detailed medical history. Once we have all of this information, our anti-aging medical doctor will discuss with you these results, and design a course of action. As mentioned earlier, this course of action will be designed specifically for you…to produce the results you desire. This is what our anti-aging physicians have a passion for doing…and doing it professionally, legally, safely and effectively.
This program is not limited solely to our hormone replacement therapy. We take a holistic approach, and offer programs of exercise, nutrition and supplements that are specifically designed for you. We don’t believe in a hit-or-miss approach; there is no guesswork involved in our programs. From optimal nutrition and supplements to a comprehensive fitness program designed to compliment your current physical condition, we leave no stone unturned to make sure you will succeed!
Our HRT Therapy is both Legal and Ethical
If you have any concerns about the legality of our treatments, please remember that our physicians are licensed, and our treatments are FDA approved. It is illegal in the United States to provide Hormone Replacement Therapy for the sole purpose of improved athletic performance. This is not what we do. Our purpose is to simply restore your hormones to what they were when you were younger, not prepare you for a career as a professional athlete.
There is nothing illegal or unethical about our treatments. Quite simply, we view aging as a disease, and we are treating that disease. Nothing more, nothing less. There is nothing, absolutely nothing unethical about being as healthy as you can be.
Okay, I’m convinced…but can I afford HRT Therapy?
As with many new technological and medical developments, scientific advances tend to reduce costs over time. Hormone Replacement Therapy is no different. In the past decade, the cost of HRT has dropped dramatically, and is well within the budget of just about anyone who desires our treatment.
Additionally, we offer several different payment options, including easy monthly installments. We guarantee you will not be hit with the usual hidden fees or “closing costs.” We pride ourselves on our flexible terms, and we will go out of our way to work with you. So please do not let finance get in the way.
But perhaps the question of “Can I afford HRT treatment” is wrong. Maybe a better question is “Can I afford NOT to get HRT treatment.” Just listen to the words of one of our satisfied clients: “What I can’t afford is to be laying on my back on a hospital gurney, with a bright light above me, and a surgeon sharpening his tools. What I can’t afford is to be stuck in a nursing home, needing help to perform the simplest daily functions like getting out of bed, bathing and walking. What I can’t afford is to allow brain fog to take over my mind, to the point that I can’t recognize my loved ones. When I think about these things, the cost of your treatments is indeed miniscule.”
So, the choice is yours. Pay us a small amount now, or pay someone else a far greater amount later. Call us today for pricing options.
The Time For Action Is NOW!
There is an ancient cliché: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This can, of course, apply to any and all areas of your life. But it is especially true concerning your health. Your good health is your greatest wealth. You owe it to your family that cares about you so much…your friends who value your companionship…your employer and clients…and above all, yourself. If there was ever a time for taking action, that time is NOW!
It is so easy to procrastinate…to say that you’ll get at it later…and ignore these nagging symptoms that were mentioned earlier, in the hope that they will somehow mysteriously disappear (guess what:they won’t). Our contemporary society is filled with distractions, entertainment and commitments that keep our minds on what is directly in front of us now, and we may forget about the distant future. It has never been so easy to delay, and put off doing what’s really important.
Unfortunately, this plays right into the hands of old man aging, and his debilitating and degrading maladies. He’s happy when you do nothing, since that makes his job much easier.
But it doesn’t have to be like that. By taking action now, you can actually go on the offensive against aging. In previous times, kings, queens and other types of royalty and rulers would have gladly given their fortunes for what is available to you. For the first time in history, the battle against aging has taken a dramatic, exciting turn…in our favor!
But none of this will matter if you don’t pick up the phone and contact us. We have over 9,000 success stories from clients who contacted us and took action. They regained their youthfulness…their zest for life…watched in delighted shock as they felt their energy levels explode…and for many, it was the first time in decades that they felt alive…truly alive. We would love to see you become success story 9,001.
But the only way that’s going to happen is if you take action, and take it now. Don’t delay, or waste another minute in useless daydreaming. Call us today!

Do you fantasize about stopping aging?
Want to regain your youthful energy?
Wish you could effortlessly zap your ever-accumulating fat?
If you answered “YES” to any of these questions, you are where you need to be…at last! Keep reading to finally discover the secrets of using a safe, easy, legal and proven method to turn the clock back…watch in amazement as your body sheds years, aches, and pounds…and experience a miracle transformation.
How many times have you heard that exercise and correct nutrition are the keys to health and longevity? Also, why you shouldn’t smoke, and why you should limit alcohol consumption, stay hydrated, get sufficient sleep and control your stress levels? And that you don’t need to take supplements or any kind of hormone replacement therapy? Just stay on the path, and forget about anything “unnatural.”
However, experience has shown that eventually these ideas weaken under the merciless battering ram of aging. No matter how strict you diet, or how many miles you run and intensely pump iron, and no matter how many Yoga pretzel-type poses you can squeeze into, you lose a little bit each year. At first, it’s almost imperceptible. A slower step here, a few new aches and pains there. And if you casually mention this, your concerns are downplayed or ignored, due to your age.
But as time goes on, aging continues to rear its ugly head in a most insidious manner. The wrinkles…the graying…the fatigue…the difficulty of concentrating…the inability to get a good night’s sleep…the new health concerns…all add up to the point that they can’t be denied or ignored.
Hopefully, you are not suffering from any or all of the above afflictions. But even if you’re not feeling the full fury of any of them, the brutal truth is this: in spite of everything you have done correctly, aging is winning. For sure, it’s a slow, grinding, hard-fought battle, thanks to your lifestyle. But aging inexorably advances, seemingly becoming more and more resistant to your efforts to slow it down.
As mentioned earlier, any concerns about the changes an older person is experiencing are quite often dismissed as “that’s natural for your age.” Or how about: “There’s nothing we can do about it, so just accept things as they are and deal with it.”
But is this depressing, bleak scenario really that cut and dried? Is there anything more we can do to feel like living again?
The answer is YES…through the miracle of Injectable Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy (HGH)
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT): A Modern Miracle
One of the main causes of aging is a lack of growth hormone. Beginning at approximately age thirty, our body’s ability to produce growth hormone begins to slow down and continues to drop at an alarming 10% per decade. As you continue to lose growth hormone, all of the above symptoms of aging appear…and just keep getting worse if you don’t do anything about it.
This is where Injectable Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy (HGH) can make a difference in your life…a gigantic, life-changing, dramatic difference. HGH is a state-of-the-art, cutting-edge therapy that can benefit both men and women. How does it work? Keep reading.
When you try our therapy, our physicians will restore your hormones to a youthful level by injecting Bio-identical hormones. These injections are precise, and are individually tailor-made for you.
Our treatments restore your levels of these vital hormones to what they were decades ago, in the prime of your youth: exactly where they need to be for you to notice the miraculous transformation that Hormone Replacement Therapy can bring! All this is done naturally, since the Bio-identical hormones we treat you with supplement your own body’s natural production of these same exact hormones.
An important point to consider is this: There is nothing unnatural or synthetic about this treatment. Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy using testosterone, human growth hormone, estrogen Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and Menopausal HRT are biologically identical versions of the hormones you have in your body. Why is this therapy needed? The problem is simple: as mentioned above, as you age your levels of these hormones decline…with debilitating effects on your health.
Here are some of the many benefits you will experience with HGH:
Blowtorch ugly, unhealthy fat
Skyrocket your energy levels
Strengthen your heart
Improve your health and quality of life
Experience deep, restorative sleep
Develop laser-like mental focus
Prevent or reduce the effects of illness
Improve bone density
Lower blood pressure
Ramp up your metabolism
Cause cold sweats and hot flashes to vanish…once and for all
And more…many, many more…too numerous to list on one page
There is an immense difference between the approach we take compared to many other healthcare providers. We are your co-pilot, and we operate together, as a team. Before we begin, we sit down with you for a one-on-one detailed consultation with one of our experienced anti-aging counselors. This allows us to fully understand your needs and goals with crystal clarity. Also, we encourage you to inquire about any and all aspects of our treatments
We will arrange for diagnostic blood testing and a full physical exam. We will also need your detailed medical history. Once we have this information, our anti-aging medical doctors will discuss with you these results, and design a course of action. This is not, in any way, shape or form a “cookie-cutter” program. Our anti-aging physicians will work to design a HGH program that is uniquely created for you.
This program is not limited solely to our hormone replacement therapy. We take a holistic approach, and offer programs of exercise, nutrition and supplements that are specifically designed for you. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is left to chance. Every aspect of your life needs to be firing on all cylinders for you to obtain maximum benefit from our hormonal replacement therapy. We leave no stone unturned to make sure you will succeed!

“My son had been after me to give HGH a try. Initially, I was somewhat skeptical, since I have seen and heard more “miracle cures” than I care to remember. But I finally caved in…and after two weeks, I had to wonder what took me so long to get going. This treatment actually does everything that it promises!”
George B., Portland. OR.
“This stuff works! My muscle-to-fat ratio has improved so much that I no longer feel the need to constantly keep my stomach covered. Before, the layer of lard around my mid-section had made me feel like a prisoner who had to keep a shirt on, out of embarrassment. Those days are gone…forever!”
Sammy J., Brooklyn, NY
“My mother had no problems when she went into menopause. but for me, it was a living, breathing hell. Hot flashes…night sweats…joint aches and pains…vaginal dryness…every horrible symptom of menopause was something that i had to live with, no matter how miserable I felt. That is, until I tried Estrogen Replacement Treatment. In less than a month, i felt like I had my life back. Thanks…thanks so much!”
Sandra H., Dallas, TX

“Woulda, coulda and shoulda” are without a doubt the three saddest words in the English language. It’s so easy…so damnably easy…to say “I’ll think about it”, or “I need to do more research”, or one of an endless array of excuses to not take action. And you know what? If taking the first step to start our HGH program was difficult, excuses might make sense.

Opportunity isn’t just knocking at your door…it’s pounding! Opportunity to live pain-free…to feel the exhilarating thrill of stopping aging dead in its tracks…and turning the clock back decades…to energetically keep up with the grand-kids…to no longer dread a game of tennis, or a round of golf…and live each day totally alive, thanks to the super-health that HGH can deliver.
But we can’t swing into action without your call. Stop complaining. Take life-altering action now.
Re-Invent Your Life Today
No question about it. Recently, we have heard so much about Human Growth Hormone (HGH) – especially its dangers and abuses. Yet common sense tells us that there are benefits to HGH. These benefits may be astonishing, since athletes are among its heaviest users, and they are ultra-competitive and acutely aware of what works and what doesn’t.
So, what is the truth? Is HGH safe and effective, as some claim? Or is it loaded with hidden dangers and hideous side effects? Just what are the benefits? And do they outweigh the risks? Let’s take a look at the facts of HGH. Then you will be in a much better position to make an informed decision as to whether or not HGH is appropriate for you.
Where is Human Growth Hormone Created?
Human Growth Hormone is produced by the pituitary gland. The pituitary is located near the central core of the brain. The specific location where Human Growth Hormone is secreted is the rear portion of the frontal lobe of the pituitary. In this area there are organs known as somatotrophs which secrete Human Growth Hormone when they receive GH-RH Stimulation from the Hypothalamus.
Human Growth Hormone is Delicate
Remember those teenage years when you could stop at a late-night, fast-food drive-through, devour an obscene, calorie-loaded pile of cheeseburgers, fries, sodas and milkshakes…yet wake up the next morning and still have abs? Or how easy it was to quickly get into tip-top shape for your favorite sport? And how your energy levels were akin to a rumbling volcano? How could this be?
The answer is simple. During these years, adolescent bodies are experiencing an explosion of HGH. This miracle substance speeds up our metabolism, which allows us to burn fat and build muscle. For many parents of teenage boys, the price of buying Junior a set of barbells is far more than its cost. Endless eating binges and constant trips to the clothing store for larger-sized clothes is a seemingly never-ending expense. But this expense is not never-ending. Here’s why.
Human Growth Hormone Decline
Mother nature, in all her infinite wisdom, is usually great about giving us what we need, when we need it. Considering that for several thousands of years of human evolution the average life-span was about 35, we only needed spurts of HGH through our twenties. Therefore, as we enter our thirties, HGH begins to decline at approximately 10% per year. This can happens even faster for some folks, due to poor lifestyle choices.
Regardless, the thing to remember is this: Mother Nature has not as of yet caught up to our recently extended life-spans. For example, entering the 20th century, the average male life expectancy was a mere 47 years! This was, of course, due to a variety of factors (sanitation, lack of modern medical procedures, risk of childbirth, ignorance of nutrition, etc.), and there have always been examples of individuals living extremely long lives.
However, we still carry the genetic patterns of eons of evolution. We are designed to reproduce in our teens or early twenties. By thirty, we have (according to this theory of evolution) fulfilled our mission, and have no need for excess HGH.
But we are not helpless bystanders to this travesty. Contact us NOW, and keep reading to learn how to fool our evolutionary decline. At times, Mother Nature offers the best way to go. But there are times when she does not…and she needs tricked. We will show you how to do this: safely, with ease and convenience.
Congratulations! You have just moved beyond “thinking about it”, and day-dreaming about what you would like to look and feel like. You have taken action…GREAT! We’re as excited as you are to help you experience the miracle of Injectable Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Replacement Therapy.
Naturally, you probably have a few questions. Please keep reading for the answers.
The Steps to a New You
Question One: What do I need to get going?
Listed below are the specific documents and procedures that are necessary to begin a physician-monitored Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) Program
Step one: First, complete our medical history form. This form is simple, clear-cut and easy-to-understand, and won’t take much time to complete. Then, send it to us by fax, e-mail or regular mail.
Step two: Once we have received your form, we will bill your credit card for your initial start-up costs. Next, we will make an appointment for you with one of our anti-aging physicians conveniently located near you. At your appointment, you will receive a blood test and a physical examination. This is done in one brief doctor’s visit.
Step three: After you have completed your physical examination and your blood work at our local affiliate, your results will be sent same day delivery via Federal Express (FEDEX) to our associate corporation LabCorp, a highly professional blood diagnostic company. Here, LabCorp specialists will run multiple diagnostic tests on your blood sample. Within a week, both the diagnostic results and the physical exam results will be sent back to us, where they will be interpreted by one of our anti-aging physicians. After this, you will receive a call from your representative physician and he or she will discuss the results of your tests with you and help you design a HRT Regime that is tailor-made and uniquely designed…just for you!
We have several different treatment options available, depending upon your needs and budget. You can choose a three-month, six month, or one year HRT program. We pride ourselves on our many flexible options, as well as the fact that we don’t have a “cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all” approach. It all depends on you, and your unique needs and desires.
Step four: After your prescription has been written, all of the hormones, supplements, and equipment you will need to begin therapy will be rushed straight to your front door via FEDEX, directly from one of our pharmacies. You will need to be available to sign for it.
Step five: After your medicines are delivered, give us a call and we will give you exact, detailed instructions on administering the injections. This will allow you to give yourself the injections safely, easily and simply, right in the privacy and comfort of your own home.
Question two: When I go to the affiliate physician in order to receive my physical and diagnostic blood work, which blood tests will be performed upon my sample?
This will depend on your gender. We have provided links below which list the specific tests which will be administered using your drawn blood. The test results take around seven days to be analyzed and finalized.
Question Three: What can your site teach me?
Everything you need to know about injectable HGH. From detailed instructions on how to inject HGH safely and painlessly, the benefits and possible side effects of HGH, advice on what to eat, what supplements to take and what kind of exercise program causes more growth hormone release, why HGH works, the location of the nearest clinic, how to contact us, general information regarding Hormone Replacement Therapy, Sermorelin and Testosterone…it’s all right there on our web page! Feel free to print any article for further study. We also inform you about scams, including HGH tablets, supplements, pills and sprays. We show you examples of their slick advertising. We also include information about other hormone programs like Testosterone replacement for treating Low T, and how to lose weight using the very affordable HCG Diet. We also intend to update our library with diet science and new information about nootropics.
Question Five: How will I document my progress?
After therapy has commenced you will use your HRT Diary as a means to document your activities and the changes in your body. Do not neglect this all-important step! By tracking your results, you and your physician can work together to assess your progress, and determine if any changes are necessary.
Question Six: Do you have any first-person testimonials? Yes, explore our site and learn all that there is about legally getting HGH in the United States of America.

You may feel that you are becoming fatigued, faster and more often than you did in your younger days. You may also be suffering from other symptoms of aging ( i.e., low sex drive, diminished immune system, loss of mental sharpness, etc.).
You may also have heard about Injectable Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Replacement Therapy, and realized that your problems may stem from a growth hormone deficiency.
Good thinking. The amount of HGH secreted by the pituitary gland drops off as we age. The older we get, the sharper the drop. So, the odds are that you probably are correct…you very well may have a HGH deficiency. But there’s only one way to know for sure: a comprehensive, detailed, professional blood test.
And that’s our first step in designing an Injectable Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy that fits your unique needs.
Your blood sample will be sent same day delivery via Federal Express (FEDEX) to our associate corporation LabCorp, which is an experienced, professional blood diagnostic company.
Once there, LabCorp specialists will run several tests (listed below). Withing 3 to seven days, we will have your results, which will be gone over in detail by one of our anti-aging physicians. This will allow us to narrow your treatment options to exactly what will give you results…quickly!
Then, your anti-aging physician will call you, and together we will devise the program that is uniquely designed just for you. We will work as a team, with one goal in mind: your successful HGH replacement therapy treatment.
Here is a look at what our comprehensive blood test covers:
HGH Diagnostic Bloodwork
The primary battery of tests are:
- Plasma and Homocysteine Levels
- Complete Metabolic Panel

Are You Sick And Tired Of Being Sick And Tired?
Then Its Time To Reverse The Aging Process…with Genotropin
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is one of the most, if not the most important hormone in the human body. It is responsible for so many functions of the body, and affects fat, muscle and cells. As we grow, the pituitary gland secretes more and more growth hormone. This reaches a peak in our teen years, as waves of HGH surge though our veins, like a fire hose with the water turned on full blast.
Regrettably, this surge begins to drop off as early as our mid-20?s. Starting around age 30, we lose growth hormone at a rate of at least 10% per decade…and this accelerates dramatically with each passing decade.
The sad reality of this? Very simple. Fully grown adults need HGH every bit as much as children and growing teenagers. By making certain lifestyle changes (correct nutrition, exercise, stress reduction and supplements), we can slow the loss of HGH. But without HGH replacement therapy, we are still fighting a losing battle…in spite of our best and valiant efforts.
This is where Genotropin can help
Genotropin is biologically similar to HGH in the sense that both are manufactured and secreted by the pituitary gland. Genotropin is an injectable form of HGH, and is approved for use in adult with low levels of HGH. Levels of HGH are detected by a stimulation test in the blood. This test measures the ability of the pituitary gland to secrete HGH.
How to use Genotropin Safely
When you begin HGH Genotropin Replacement Therapy, our professional and experienced staff will guide you every step of the way. Safety is our top priority, and this means we will not prescribe any form of HGH Replacement Therapy (including Genotropin) until we have evaluated the results of your blood work and physical exam. Specifically, clients will not receive Genotropin therapy if they:
Have active tumors, or are in the process of receiving anti-tumor treatment.
Have any sort of complications from injury, surgery, and any heart or lung problems
Are suffering from Prader Willi Syndrome
Are allergic to the preservative Cresol
Once you have began Genotropin therapy, you will be instructed to contact us immediately if any of the following symptoms appear: vomiting, nausea, blurry vision and headaches. These may be symptoms of a rare disorder called Intracranial Hypertension, which occurs as a result of abnormal levels of pressure in and around the brain. As mentioned, this is very rare, and is easily dealt with by halting the therapy or adjusting the dosage.
Other possible side effects are: muscle or join pain, tingling and numbness in the fingers and toes, stiff joints and fluid retention that may lead to swelling of the feet and hands. These symptoms usually disappear on their own. If not, we will adjust the dosage.

You’ve read about the benefits…the incredible, mind-blowing benefits…that Injectable Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy (HGH) can deliver. Perhaps you have waded through the scientific studies – studies that have demonstrated and scientifically proven, time and time again – that HGH works! And your conclusion is that maybe…just maybe…this is exactly what you have been searching for and have at long-last finally found. Yet you’re still not quite sure.
For many, this is the first time that any anti-aging product or treatment regime has actually delivered on it’s promise. And the first time they have found something that is not too good to be true.
Why is this? What’s the secret?
This is, of course, a logical question. Exactly why does HGH produce the benefits and results that it promises? What’s the secret? Good question. A question that deserves an honest, easy-to-understand answer.
And the answer is…drum roll…Cell Regeneration
Here’s why. Aging was once considered an inevitable fact of life. Everyone gets old. That’s Mother Nature’s plan, and that’s “just the way it is.” All attempts to slow or reverse the aging process were considered either immoral or scientifically impossible.
However, the past several decades have witnessed a sea change in attitudes toward aging. Medical professionals, bodybuilders, life-extension devotees, research scientists and regular people with an interest in alternative health have gradually began to see aging as it is: A DISEASE
And the loss of growth hormone is the main cause of aging.
Think about this. Human Growth Hormone is responsible for virtually everything in our bodies…muscle growth…memory…metabolism…skin and hair growth…our ability to heal wounds…and more…much more.
What do all of these important functions have in common? They are all ruled by our cells. Simply put, cell reproduction and growth are a direct result of the growth hormone that is secreted by the pituitary gland.
This is the reason why children and teenagers seem to change so rapidly. Growth hormone is racing through their veins at a breakneck pace. So far, so good.
The problems begin as the pituitary gland slows down the release of growth hormone. This usually begins around the age of 30, and continues at approximately 10% per decade. Do the math, and construct the graph. The line steadily goes downhill…
And the end result is not a pretty picture.
Wrinkles. Sagging skin and muscles. Increased flab around the mid-section. Thinning hair. Fatigue. Lack of quality sleep. Joint pain. The onset of one affliction after the next. Indeed, not a pretty picture…not by a long-shot. But when growth hormone goes to work at the deepest cellular level, the entire game changes. Here is a brief, non-scientific explanation of why growth hormone is so effective.
Protease is defined as an enzyme that breaks down proteins and peptides. Protease plays a huge role maintaining our good health. From helping digest the protein we eat, to boosting out immune system and keeping our blood in an alkaline state (as opposed to an acidic state), protease keeps things running as intended.
However, our supply of protease is subject to constant attack from Free Radicals. Free Radicals are defined as an atom or group of atoms that has one unpaired electron, which makes it highly unstable and reactive. Free Radicals have been proven in studies to cause cellular damage, and are linked to many age-related diseases.
Growth Hormone to the rescue
This is where growth hormone proves itself to be a super-hero. Growth hormone offers a stonewall defense of our cells by stimulating protease inhibitors. These defenders attack Free Radicals tooth and claw, and stop them from doing damage to our cells. The results? Take a look:
Increased bone density, smooth, glowing skin, improved digestion, skyrocketing energy levels and many other amazing surprises all team up to put the brakes on aging…and even put aging into reverse gear!
As you can see, beauty is not just skin-deep. It begins at the smallest and deepest levels of our bodies: our cells. The astonishing benefits that growth hormone delivers begin from the inside out. There is nothing “just cosmetic” about injectable HGH. Literally everything in your body…from the tiniest atom to the largest organs and muscles…will experience a rejuvenation that must be seen and felt to be believed.
But none of this can happen without you taking action. Don’t waste another moment with useless daydreaming about regaining your youthful vitality. CALL US! NOT TORORROW…NOT NEXT WEEK…NOT NEXT MONTH…CALL RIGHT NOW!
Somatropin is the scientific name for biosynthetic Human Growth Hormone (HGH). HGH is produced naturally by a healthy human body. Though somatropin is not biologically derived, it is structurally identical to HGH. HGH has several beneficial effects on the body. First, HGH promotes the development and growth of lean muscle mass. The number of muscle cells a person has is a result of heredity. After puberty ends, endogenous HGH plateaus and then recedes, leading to an atrophy of natural muscle development. The only way that muscles can become stronger is by enhancing the size and number of muscle cells through weight lifting and exercise. Steroids have a very different effect on the muscles than HGH. Steroids cause the muscles to increase in size through the introduction of added water weight. HGH, on the other hand, causes a person to increase their lean muscle mass. The increase in muscle mass is slow. A patient gains between one to two pounds of muscle every seven to fourteen days. Though it seems slow, this is actually an impressive improvement, and by taking Bio-Identical HGH to help the body create more muscle cells, a person can blast through their limitations and attain results that would be impossible without HGH Treatment. Another effect of HGH Therapy is boosted metabolism and energy. HGH is secreted by the human body at peak levels during the period of puberty. This is a major reason why children have such boundless energy. The sad truth of the matter, however, is that our body produces less and less HGH as we age. Supplementing HGH Replacement Therapy can ratchet up your metabolism as well as send your energy levels through the roof. This happens due to the body converting fat into energy. Here’s the deal: HGH is a precursor hormone of Insulin-like Growth Factor-1. IGF-1 is manufactured by the liver as a direct result of chemical messages sent by HGH. IGF-1 makes the human body take its primary source of energy from fat deposits around the body rather than from the foods that you eat. This causes even sedentary HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy users to melt slabs of flab…while staying on the couch! Just imagine if they follow one of our recommended exercise routines…WOW!

Human Growth Hormone and Energy Levels
Medical studies have uncovered tons of evidence that beyond the age of thirty, the body produces significantly less HGH. This leads to symptoms of HGH Deficiency and premature aging in adults. The body begins to lose its luster and sheen and become more worn down. As these levels of HGH growth drop, the immune system starts to falter as well, causing certain diseases to occur with much greater likelihood. Bio-Identical HGH was created using Recombinant Genetic methods and it is structurally identical to the human body’s endogenous HGH. HGH Hormone Replacement therapy is non-toxic, safe, and there are no major side effects as long as the therapy is administered carefully using a physician prescribed regimen. HGH has been approved for use in both adults and children both in the U.S. and world-wide. Scientists across the world recognize the benefits of this groundbreaking therapy. Over one thousand scientific and medical studies have been financed around the world which prove that HGH has unbelievable, astonishing benefits.

When mixed with other Anti-Aging treatments, the results of HGH HRT can be compounded. To attain the maximum and most life changing results, lifestyle changes should be adopted in addition to therapy. ” I feel BRAND NEW! I’ve seen what aging and illness can do to rob people of a normal, happy life, and I have long been determined to fight these twin monsters. I have tried many ideas and approaches. Some had more success than others. But nothing I have tried has worked like HGH. I can only wonder why everyone doesn’t know about this stuff.” Rocky W., Delray Beach, FL Anti-Aging Physician Doctor Dan Rudman believes that the effects of a 6 month HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy Program on adipose fat and lean muscle equal a reversal of the amount of change that occurs over the course of ten to twenty years! Think about this. What this means is that aging is not a completely inevitable breakdown of the body. There are many aspects of the process that can be reversed or at least prevented. Note: HGH cannot be prescribed for cosmetic body building or improved athletic performance. It can only be used as an Anti-Aging cure in the presence of a deficiency.
What are hormones?
Hormones are complex polypeptide chemical messengers which send messages from one organ or gland in the body to another target area of the body conveyed through the bloodstream Once the message reaches the target tissue, changes happen. For the most part, our hormones are manufactured and released from the endocrine glands, among which are the testes, ovaries, adrenals, parathyroids, thyroid, pituitary, and the pancreatic islets, the placenta, and certain areas along the gastrointestinal system. If a person has a deficiency in any of the numerous hormones used by the body it can lead to major or even life threatening problems. Fortunately, modern science now allows us to synthetically produce Bio-Identical Hormones that can be used to alleviate Hormone Deficiencies. The pituitary gland produces a number of different vital hormones. Among those released by the anterior pituitary are HGH, the gonadotropic hormones, adrenocorticotropic hormone, and thyrotropin. The rear lobe of the pituitary gland produces oxytocin, prolactin, and antidiuretic hormone. The thyroid gland produces calcitonin and thyroxine. The parathyroid releases parathyroid hormone. The medulla of the adrenal gland produces norepinephrine and epinephrine, and the cortex of the adrenal gland produces cortison, cortisol, corticosterone, and aldosterone. Among the sexual organs, the testes mostly produce testosterone while the ovaries produce progesterone and estrogen. The testes, ovaries, and adrenal cortex are all able to produce at least a serviceable amount of any of the steroidal hormones. In the pancreas, the islets of Langerhans manufacture somatostatin, glucagon, and insulin. The kidneys secrete erythropoietin, which is the precurson to red blood cells. In the digestive system, the passage of chyme, which extends from the stomach down to the duodenum sends a signal to the duodenum to manufacture secretin. This causes the pancreatic juices to flow. The chyme sends messages to the duodenum to release cholecystokinin when fats are consumed. This chemical messenger tells the gall bladder to squeeze out bile. Evidence also suggests that the upper intestinal track produces pancreatozymin, which leads to a greater number of digesting enzymes to be produced by the pancreas. The stomach produces other hormones as well. The pyloric region produces gastrin, which raises the level of hydrochloric acid inside the stomach. The placenta has been proven to release HCG and progesterone. Studies also suggest that the placenta produces another hormone that is functionally similar to HGH. In insects, ecdysone is a member of a steroidal hormone group that causes metamorphosis and molting. Juvenile hormone is also produced, which leads to changes which occur in the early development of an insect. Members of the plant kingdom have hormones of their own as well. These include cytokinins, gibberellins, and auxins, which are hormones associated with the production of buds, bulbs, tubers, and flowers. The hormone ethylene is believed to play a role in fruit ripening.
Learn About Human Growth Hormone
HGH plays an integral role in youthfulness. As our level of HGH drops, aging speeds up…with all of its tender, loving gifts: stiff, achy joints, no endurance, weak muscles, mental fog, etc. Lack of HGH is not the sole cause of aging, but it makes the aging process occur earlier and faster. HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy has the ability to melt fat and increase lean muscle mass, but it may not reverse other common effects of aging such as baldness. Scientists have long known that HGH levels are at their highest during the puberty. That’s the origin of the hormone’s name. The Secretion of HGH occurs in quick, intermittent bursts which are best described as pulses. These pulses happen at most often in the first hours of deep sleep. The old wives tale that we grow when we sleep actually does in fact have merit. Surprisingly, these bursts of HGH only remain in the blood for a short period of time. They flow through the blood stream until the liver can absorb the burst. In the liver, HGH is converted into growth factors, primarily Insulin-like Growth Factor 1. The body’s ability to regulate HGH production is very complicated, and there are many systems which play a role in how much HGH gets secreted. So far, scientific research points to the fact that HGH levels drop in all animals as they age. In humans, the hormonal decline begins somewhere in the mid to late twenties. From there, the body produces around fourteen percent less every decade. By the time a person reaches sixty, their rate of HGH production has dropped by fifty percent from peak levels.
Effects of HGH Deficiency
HGH deficiency is directly correlated to the draggy, flabby, saggy, wrinkling, bulging figures that we eventually begin to see in the bathroom mirror. People who have abnormally low levels of HGH decline at a much faster rate, and age more visibly than people who have the luck of good genes, or stave off the aging process through vigorous exercise which stimulates the secretion of HGH. The decline of HGH with age has some similarities with menopause. For this reason, it has been given a similar scientific name-Somatopause.
Human Growth Hormone Health Tips
Start with small doses: HGH is incredibly potent, and taking more won’t help you get better results. If you are just initiating HGH HRT, start with small injections of around 0.1 to 0.3 milligrams each day. Keep in mind that the final goal of HGH Replacement Therapy is to boost endogenous HGH production. Keep an eye out for side effects: Almost the entire array of HGH side effects are directly tied to over-administration of the hormone. For a detailed look at potential side effects and our safety protocols, For our detailed recommendations on nutrition, exercise, hydration and supplements, “I’m not going to lie. I was very nervous about the side effects of growth hormone prescriptions. And I was even more nervous about using a needle. However, after talking to my anti-aging physician, I felt comfortable to give it a whirl. The result? As long as you follow the simple and direct instructions, there is nothing to worry about. And the injections are not only easy, but they are pain free as well. Don’t let fear hold you back. D Fisk, Lawton, OK

Hgh Production (video 25)
To obtain HGH injections is no longer a difficult task because the FDA has approved growth hormone replacement therapy for adults diagnosed with deficiency. There are many web sites offering HGH treatments online, but only a few of them are reputable. To obtain HGH in the United States, you need to take a physical exam, get your blood tested for deficiency, and show signs and symptoms of low hgh levels. Before you start an HGH therapy program, be sure the place you are purchasing from requires blood panel tests at your local blood draw center, like quest diagnostics or lab corp. Do not buy from web sites that do not require blood tests, or you will get a knock on the door from the FBI or DEA, and have handcuffs slapped on you. Go through legitimate medical centers like Conscious Evolution Medical Institute of Hormone Therapy or Kingsberg Medical or Anti-Aging Group.
In other words only buy HGH from board certified physicians specializing in Endocrinology, not from fly by night Internet web sites that dont require medical evaluation.
You can be certain that our HGH physicians will prescribe to buy HGH online only after blood work, examination and complete medical history form was provided by the patient. Hormone experts will observe their patients before and during HGH therapy. The most important goal for our specialists is improvement of life quality for their patients.HGH Doctors will not prescribe to buy HGH online just because people want it or because HGH therapy is very popular in our days, or for any other irrelevant reasons. HGH Doctors will not prescribe to buy HGH online for bodybuilding purposes or people under 30 years of age without the proof of decreased levels of HGH or symptoms relevant to Human Growth Hormone deficiency. Only a specialist can determine the feasibility to buy HGH online for anti-aging and improvement of your life quality. Our specialists prescribe to buy HGH online only for people who really need HGH therapy and only for rejuvenation purposes.
Remember: when you are looking to buy HGH injections, remember that Somatropin (HGH) can only be obtained through prescription from a licensed physician.
Another important fact is that our HGH Physicians prescribe only Somatropin injectables approved by FDA and our physicians prescribe injections for their patients only if it it’s clinically necessary. You can never be 100% sure of the HGH injections quality and how safe they are when you buy HGH injections online from fly by night web sites.
Dangers and SideEffects of Human Growth Hormone Abuse
Human Growth Hormone ReplacementTherapy is an incredibly safe treatment option for patients whosuffer from HGH Deficiency. There are few, if any, side-effects whenHuman Growth Hormone is prescribed by a medical professional and usedsafely and responsibly, but there are a number of side effectsassociated with the abuse of Human Growth Hormone.
Human Growth Hormone and CarpalTunnel Syndrome
HGH abuse has been linked to theexacerbation of Carpal Tunnel syndrome and arthritis. In some cases,Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs because edema (which is also caused byHGH abuse) over-hydrates the cells in the area of the wrist,increasing the pressure on the joint while also exacerbatingunderlying arthritis issues. Long term abuse may also directly causeCarpal Tunnel Syndrome, because HGH is an incredibly potent hormonewhich increases the rate at which bones and muscles grow, in additionto other organs. If the cartilage of the joints grow as a result ofHGH Abuse, this can lead to increased pain and reduced ability tohave a full range of motion with the wrists.
Human Growth Hormone and Arthritis
the Abuse of HGH can also lead toarthritis in individuals who choose to abuse the drug for an extendedperiod of time. Arthritis occurs for the same reason as Carpal TunnelSyndrome. Human Growth Hormone stimulates the growth of cartilage andbone which can cause joints to grow abnormally. Although after theepiphyseal plates close at the end of puberty the bones are no longerable to truly grow longer, they can still grow in a malformed waywhich can contribute to joint issues later in life.
Edema and Human Growth HormoneAbuse
Edema can occur after a short periodof HGH Abuse. Edema is defined as excess water retention which causesparts of the body to bloat slightly. With HGH Abuse, edema occurs asa result of extracellular fluid. Edema, if left untreated, can causea number of negative health issues. Edema in the legs, for example,can cause blood vessels and veins to break and rupture, preventingthe body from circulating blood efficiently through the body.Clinical and anecdotal evidence regarding extracellular edema andHuman Growth Hormone suggests that in the vast majority of casesedema is relieved quickly after abuse of HGH ends.
Gigantism and HGH Abuse
Gigantism is the result of HumanGrowth Hormone abuse in children and adolescents, and teenagersbefore the epiphyseal plates close at the end of puberty. This cancause children to grow too large for their frame and can lead tophysiological complications later in life including joint pain andarthritis. Many younger individuals (or their unscrupulous parents ortrainers) believe that they can use Human Growth Hormone to increasesize advantage across the board in order for the youth to dominate inathletics.
The primary side effect of this isthat the bones grow abnormally, which can actually make individualsmore frail than they would be at their normal adult height. Inaddition to this, this form of HGH abuse can increase the size ofinternal organs, causing a plethora of negative health issues. Also,Gigantism can distort the features of the hands, feet, and face,leading to a decided neanderthal-like appearance. Generally,gigantism is the result of a chemical imbalance in the brain, such aswas the case with Andre the Giant. There have, however, been caseswhere symptoms of gigantism have occurred as a result of adolescentHuman Growth Hormone Overdose.
Acromegaly and Human GrowthHormone Overdose
Acromegaly in a way is the adult formof gigantism. Because the epiphyseal plates have closed, the adultbody can no longer grow in height. Acromegaly is when the bones ofthe hands, feet, and face grow abnormally as a result of excess HGHlevels. Long Term HGH overdose causes the bones to grow abnormallythick, calcifying more and more area around the bone and changing theentire shape of the bones, although not lengthening themmeaningfully. This can lead to hands and feet prone to severearthritis and wrists prone to carpal tunnel syndrome. Acromegaly isthe one side-effect of Human Growth Hormone abuse that is notreversed by ending HGH abuse. Changes in bone structure arerelatively permanent.
Diabetes and Human Growth HormoneAbuse
Although HGH Hormone ReplacementTherapy can be highly beneficial for patients who suffer fromdiabetes, the abuse of HGH can be highly detrimental. Human GrowthHormone and Insulin are both hormones which work by effectingmetabolism. Insulin regulates the breakdown of carbohydrates andsugars, while Human Growth Hormone encourages the breakdown of fatand increases cellular metabolism.
Human Growth Hormone converts intoInsulin-like Growth Factor 1 in the liver, and has a similarmolecular composition to Insulin. IGF-1 actually has the ability tocompete with Insulin at receptor sites which can inhibit the abilityof Insulin to regulate blood-sugar levels. This only generally occursin the instance of HGH Abuse because Insulin receptor sites favorInsulin over IGF-1 by a large margin, and IGF-1 only crowds outInsulin when overdose occurs.
Hypothyroidism and Human GrowthHormone Abuse
In some cases, hypothyroidism can beunearthed as a result of HGH Deficiency. Human Growth Hormone doesnot cause hypothyroidism and there is actually evidence that HGHHormone Replacement Therapy can treat Hypothyroidism, but Abuse ofGrowth Hormone can cause the Thyroid Gland to malfunction, secretinglower levels of Thyroid Hormone. After Human Growth Hormone Abuse hasbeen suspended, the thyroid gland may be unable to function normally,decreasing energy levels and increasing the risk of weight gainimmediately after therapy ends. The Thyroid gland plays an importantrole in both hunger and energy levels.
When thyroid hormone levels are low,the thyroid constantly sends a message of hunger, causing the body tostore more fat and the brain to want more food. In addition to that,the constant hunger warning signal prevents other hormones fromfunctioning properly and can exhaust both body and mind, leading tofatigue. Any patient who is interested in HGH Hormone ReplacementTherapy should undergo testing for hypothyroidism as well, becausehypothyroidism causes many symptoms of HGH Deficiency and may even beable to be treated with appropriately safe levels of Human GrowthHormone.
Liver Damage and HGH Abuse
If Human Growth Hormone levels in theblood stream are far too high, this can lead to permanent liverdamage. The liver is only equipped to convert a certain amount ofHuman Growth Hormone at any particular time. When the body receives along term overdose of HGH, this overloads the liver and causes theorgan to take damage. The liver is one of the slowest to heal organsin the human body, and can easily be damaged permanently.
Also, liver damage is the primaryreason why oral Human Growth Hormone and HGH Releasers should beavoided. Stomach acid breaks down both HGH and the components ofHuman Growth Hormone Releasers, sending rogue amino acid chains tothe liver. If the liver is flooded with particular amino acids andenzymes, the organ can take heavy damage over time as a result.
Decreased Pituitary GlandFunctional
For those who abuse HGH Injections,the excess Human Growth Hormone flooding the body actually causes thebody to send signals to the pituitary gland to severely restrictendogenous release of Human Growth Hormone. This process is known asnegative feedback, and when more Growth Hormone is introduced to thehuman body than the pituitary can physiologically create, this causesnegative feedback mechanisms to ramp up to the absolute max.
Negative feedback can also sometimesreduce pituitary function in patients with HGH Deficiency as well.This is why for patients in their 30s, 40s, and 50s, it is oftenrecommended for patients to take one or two days off from treatmentper week in order to encourage the pituitary gland to continue toproduce HGH as efficiently as possible. This is also why some doctorsoften recommend Sermorelin Acetate Therapy over HGH Injections. Thisallows the pituitary gland to produce more endogenous Human GrowthHormone by stimulating the pituitary with synthetic GH-RH.
There are other potentialside-effects related to HGH abuse, but these are a few of the mostwell-known
How do I avoid thesymptoms of HGH Abuse?
Do not use Human Growth Hormone ifyou have healthy endogenous HGH levels. Also, do not take HGHinjections that exceed two units. There is a large amount of clinicalevidence that Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy when usedresponsibly causes few or no significant side effects. Many men andwomen use Human Growth Hormone to enhance their athletic performance,and, in their quest to defeat their competition, take HGH injectionswhich far exceed a healthy human dose. Side-effects from HGH Abusetend to develop over time. There are few side effects that occurimmediately and this tends to encourage individuals to abuse thehighly potent hormone even more.
If you have abused Human GrowthHormone in the past, the good news is that most of the effects arereversible. There are certain issues such as acromegaly and liverdamage that can not be reversed, but these are also the two symptomsthat are the result of the severest forms of abuse.
Who should avoidHuman Growth Hormone?
If you are a current cancer patient,you should avoid Human Growth Hormone. Although HGH has not beenshown to cause cancer, there is still evidence that Human GrowthHormone may exacerbate existing malignant tumors. HGH’s primaryfunction in to increase cellular metabolism.
In healthy patients this is highlybeneficial, but in patients with active cancers, this may exacerbateanti-cancer treatment. If you have a family history of cancer, youshould be upfront and honest with your doctor so that you can discussthe potential risks of treatment, especially if you have a familyhistory of reproductive and prostate cancer.
If you are currently being treatedfor an acute critical health issue you should avoid Human GrowthHormone Replacement Therapy until the medical issue is resolved.Issues such as heart or abdominal surgery may necessitate that yoususpend HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Women who are breastfeeding orpregnant should talk to their physician about the use of Human GrowthHormone Replacement Therapy, because it is unclear at this timewhether HGH Injections effect the fetus or if HGH is secreted throughthe milk ducts.
Although there is evidence that HGHHormone Replacement Therapy may be a beneficial way to treatdiabetes, patients with diabetes should closely monitor blood-glucoselevels because Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy and Diabetesboth effect human metabolism in unique but somewhat interconnectedways.
All patients who consider HGH HormoneReplacement Therapy should be tested for other hormone disorders inorder to ensure that HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy will provide themaximum benefit to the patient.
How to AvoidSide-Effects when Administering Bio-Identical Physician PrescribedHuman Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy
When used correctly, HGH HormoneReplacement Therapy causes few or no side effects. There are a numberof medical techniques that can be used to prevent the onset ofsymptoms such as edema and cranial hypertension as the bodytransitions to a new and healthier level of Human Growth Hormone.When HGH Therapy first begins, it is often recommended to start at adose slightly lower than what your diagnostic testing may suggest.This is because every patient has unique Human Growth Hormone needs,and what may bring optimal health to one patient may induce minorside-effects in another.
If the body still seems like it couldrespond more vigorously to HGH Replacement, the dosage can beadjusted slightly upwards at a later date. In addition to this, HumanGrowth Hormone produces the fewest side effects when administered themost often. Another reason why those who abuse Human Growth Hormonesuffer side effects is because they shoot themselves up with largedoses which overwhelm the body. This is why it is generallyrecommended that patients with HGH deficiency inject themselves dailywith Human Growth Hormone.
This helps the medication moreclosely mimic natural HGH production which helps the body respondmore positively to the introduction of healthy levels of Human GrowthHormone. Some patients even opt to take two small injections twice aday. These patients tend to take one injection before bed and oneinjection just before physical exercise. These are the two periods ofthe day in which HGH secretion is at its peak.
Protocol for Safe andEffective Hormone Replacement Therapy
For all patients, HGH HormoneReplacement Therapy will feature a relatively low, yet potent dose ofone to two units of Human Growth Hormone per day. This minimizes therisk of side-effects while maximizing the potential benefits oftherapy.
For patients older than thirty fivewho are suffering from the symptoms of Andropause and display adiagnosed deficiency of Human Growth Hormone and IGF-1, the standarddose is no less than one and no more than 2 IU per injection.Although older patients may opt to undergo HGH Hormone ReplacementTherapy seven days a week, younger patients in their thirties,forties, and fifties are generally recommended to only inject HGHShots five consecutive days per week, taking two days off. These daysoff are generally during the weekend, but this is simply a matter ofpersonal preference.
It is important to be aware of thedangers of Human Growth Hormone Abuse, but it also important torecognize that Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy is a safe andeffective means to treat HGH Hormonal Deficiency that occurs as anatural result of the aging process. Although HGH Deficiency is anatural occurrence, it is not a life sentence. Today, HGH Injectionshave the ability to turn back the clock, allowing patients to bypassthe dangers of Age-Related Human Growth Hormone Deficiency andincrease the quality of their lives as they grow older.
HGH and Testosterone HormoneReplacement Therapy Often Beneficial in Combination
Both Human Growth Hormone andTestosterone tend to decline at similar rates. Many patients chooseto combine HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy and TestosteroneInjections in order to maximize the health benefits of alleviatingthe effects of Andropause.

The slogan of Mancore’s product-line parent company, Complete Nutrition is “Look better. Feel better. Perform better”, but what they are selling on one of their websites, or specifically www Mancore Results, appears to be nothing more than fancy tablets with proprietary blends in sexy supplement jars and to top it off, a spray bottle with the words HGH on it. Why does this matter? Let’s visit their web site first http://www.mancoreresults.com/ and find out. On the front page of the mancore web site, is the mean and lean, Mike Alstott, Former All-Pro Fullback and beside him is an embedded video of talking heads offering energetic and glowing reviews about the mancore line of products and how it came into existence.
Know this, the only legitimate hormone replacement therapy programs that exist, are under the guidelines of medical science, requiring a physicians prescription. If you see a company selling supplements, pills, or tablets that use hormone names in them like testosterone or hgh, they are likely scams. Have you seen the latest hormone replacement therapy marketing scam? Genf20, nugenix, Serovital, and now Mancore. Why are they scams? because they use deceptive concepts to market their products, and make claims that can not be scientifically backed up after 80 years of testosterone research and 50 years of HGH research, there is nothing in scientific or medical literature to back up the claims these web sites claim about their products.
Let’s look closer, a visit to their expensively designed web site www.ManCoreResults.com shows handsome people and beautifully package bottles of pills or sprays, with names like Testosterone Replenish and HGH Night Spray. Vitamins don’t replenish Testosterone, and HGH Night Spray? Come on, what a joke, the only way to increase HGH in the body without exercising is via HGH injections or Sermorelin injections, but taking vitamins and concoctions of herb complexes do not replenish or boost hormones in our body at any level other than a placebo.
Do you know why testosterone is injected intramuscularly or delivered by a transdermal cream? Because these 2 methods allow Testosterone to enter the blood stream. If you took testosterone in the form of pills, it would slowly destroy your liver, this is why there isn’t a single reputable doctor on the planet Earth that would prescribe you testosterone pills. So when you surf around our web site, we will show you many different companies selling testosterone pills, which dont actually have testosterone in them, but vitamins and herbs. We provide these companies on our site, so you can checkout their slick marketing scams.
If you want to buy a genuine injectable HGH, Sermorelin and Testosterone Injections Program you can contact us for the real deal, not BS pills or sprays, use the contact form on our web site here and we will have a medical consultant contact you and talk to you about how to get a genuine hormone treatment program prescribed by a board certified physician who specializes in hormone replacement therapy. Until then, explore our web site, and look at all the scam companies out there trying to sell you supplements with fancy names that include hormone names on them, but dont actually have the hormones. We provide videos and information about literally dozens of companies selling fake HGH and Testosterone, or selling products that promise to stimulate or release these hormones.

The Mississippi State Hospitals closure of its Community Services Division may violate the Americans with Disabilities Act. Photo by Trip Burns.
The Mississippi State Hospital may be in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act after closing its Community Services Division, which provided outpatient care for those suffering mental disabilities. A June 10, 2014, state Performance Evaluation and Expenditure Review (PEER) report criticized the decisions made regarding the closure. PEER conducted the investigation after complaints about MSH’s contract with Key Behavior Essentials, the company designated to facilitate the transfer of patients to other providers.
Mississippi Department of Mental Health officials deemed the Community Services Division “outside the hospital’s primary mission” and, due to a decrease of funds over recent years, the hospital will redirect resources to facilitate inpatient care at MSH.
But, under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the state has an obligation deliver community-based mental health care. In 2011, the U.S. Department of Justice criticized the condition of mental health care in Mississippi after finding the state in violation of ADA for institutionalizing patients who could have participated in the community.
As of December 2013, Mississippi had spent 51 percent of the state’s mental-health funds on community-based care, and 71 percent of DMH mental-health patients serve in the community.
During the course of the PEER evaluation, MSH terminated its contract with Key Behavior Essentials, which was working under the name Guided Steps Healthcare and was responsible for taking over outpatient care and transfer of MSH’s community-based patients. PEER found Guided Steps Healthcare’s “failure to comply with DMH Operational Standards” and “inappropriate and unethical conduct,” legitimate reasons for terminating the contract on April 12, 2014.
PEER Director Max Arinder said the Guided Steps Healthcare executive director did not have the proper combination of degrees and experience MSH requires.
“When we pursued it, and then did additional verification, it ultimately came out, and the person admitted, that they simply did not have that credential, and that’s certainly an unethical act,” Arinder said.
PEER also questioned the incentives included in the contract with Guided Steps Healthcare. MSH planned to allow the company to use the Community Service Division’s vehicles, building, equipment, computers and printers. Although MSH had a $45,000 contract with Guided Steps Healthcare, additional incentives amounted to more than the contract value.
“Essentially, the contract would have allowed Guided Steps to expand its business in the state to deliver adult mental health services in preparation for fulfilling the terms of the contract by using state resources, as opposed to its own resources,” the PEER report stated.

A sexual abuse victim and former Guildford music teacher who killed herself told doctors that police advised her not to have counselling and she felt “let down” by a mental health team, an inquest has heard.
Frances Andrade, 48, was found dead at her home in Guildford after taking an overdose of drugs – including an Insulin amount equal to a “20 to 30-day supply” – on January 24 last year.
The mother of four, who worked for eight years as a violin teacher at St Catherine’s School in Bramley, committed suicide a week after giving evidence in the trial of her abuser, former choir master Michael Brewer.
Brewer, of Swarthmore Road, Selly Oak, Birmingham – who abused Mrs Andrade when she was a student at the internationally-acclaimed Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester – was jailed for six years at Manchester Crown Court last year.
The inquest into the death of Mrs Andrade, which resumed in Woking on Wednesday (July 9), heard from her GPs at St Luke’s Surgery in Warren Road, Guildford.
After Brewer was charged in April 2012, her doctor at the time, Alastair Bint, noticed her condition deterioriating.
Dr Bint told the inquest: “I was aware that Fran was suffering significant mental health problems which were significant enough for psychiatric help – but she was very resistant [to counselling].
The police told her not to have counselling because it would interfere with her memory of events and the construction of a criminal case.
I felt her mental health was more important – the criminal case was a separate matter.
“She told me she would have an hour each night where she would shout and cry to get rid of emotional stress.”

The total costs are more or less equally divided among losses sustained from premature death, lost productivity, and healthcare costs to treat smoking related diseases in this group.
As the prevalence of smoking is around 50% higher among people with mental health issues than among the general public, much more needs to be done to help them quit and stave off this huge financial and personal deficit, conclude the researchers.
They base their findings on an estimate of the avoidable costs of smoking among people with mental health issues in the UK in 2009-10, which they calculated using the World Health Organization’s economics of tobacco toolkit.
This assesses the costs of the health effects of cigarette smoking, to include direct healthcare costs, indirect morbidity costs – productivity loss due to excess absenteeism – and indirect mortality costs – productivity loss due to premature death due to smoking related diseases, such as lung cancer, heart disease and stroke, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Mental health services account for around 14% of the total annual NHS budget and comprise the single largest component of NHS expenditure, while the ill health caused by smoking costs the NHS more than 5 billion or around 5% of the total annual NHS budget.
An estimated 3 million adults with neurotic and psychotic disorders were smokers in 2009-10. The direct medical cost to the NHS of treating them for diseases caused by smoking amounted to 719 million in 2009-10 – equivalent to 320 per person – considerably higher than the figure for a member of the general public, say the researchers.
