HORMONE TREATMENTS

Hormone Replacement Therapy in Fort Myers

At Morris Medical Center, our practice focus is on the basics of optimal health and longevity being proper diet, exercise, nutritional supplementation and hormone replacement therapy.

This stops cellular degeneration and allows regeneration of tissue, healing and a slowing down of the aging process.

Hormones are not drugs. They are natural substances that have existed in our bodies since conception. The doses of hormones taken in hormone replacement therapy should never exceed what your body has already been accustomed to in its younger years. They caused no harm in the body at that time and when restored to youthful levels continue to provide the health and vigor that one loses as they age.

Hormone Prescriptions

When hormones are taken as prescribed by Dr. Morris and monitored in correct doses, they work with each other to restore declining immunity which in turn helps protect the body against cancer.

Severe, rapid physical deterioration is not a requirement of growing older. It is now possible to slow down much of this undesirable aspect of aging, as well as the symptoms and diseases associated with aging.

Hormone replacement therapy is an updated science which has been shown to not only prolong life but prolong the quality of the one’s life.

At Morris Medical Center, we specialize in total hormone replacement regimens as well as exercise, medical weight loss, and nutritional supplementation to achieve maximum benefits and deter the aging process (anti-aging).

Hormone Therapy Acceptance

If you qualify, a complete physical examination and laboratory evaluation will be performed. Then Dr. Morris will prescribe a personalized hormone supplementation program and manage your hormone program with the goal of reaching and maintaining optimal hormone levels.

Anti-Aging Weight Loss Growth Hormone

In addition to specific male and female Hormone Treatments, Morris Medical Center also provides growth hormone treatments.

Growth hormone (hGH) is secreted by the pituitary gland and is taken into the liver and converted into a protein called somatomedin-C or IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor-one).

It is IGF-1 that is partially responsible for the growth hormone functions in the body. Growth hormone contributes to ongoing tissue repair, healing, cell rejuvenation, bone strength, brain function, enzyme production, and the integrity of hair, nails, and skin.

Growth Hormone Deficiency

The signs of growth hormone deficiency are the same as the signs of aging. Body composition shifts with an increase in fat and body weight, and a decrease in muscle mass and energy. There is a decrease in bone mineralization and vitality, with an increase in cardiovascular disease and mortality.

There are also psychosocial deficits and impaired physical performance, poor sleep, and decreases in social interaction.

Research indicates that daily supplementation of growth hormone may reverse symptoms of the aging process and restore a more youthful physiology and conditioning. All major hGH studies have documented improved body composition and function.

Growth Hormone Results

There is a consistent improvement in muscle/fat ratio. There is a 10 to 20% decrease in fat and a 10% increase in muscle. There is also an increased lipolysis or breakdown of fat with the concomitant decrease in cholesterol and triglycerides.

There is also an increase in exercise capacity, bone density, muscle mass and strength. There is an increase in cardiac output, skin rejuvenation with an increase in collagen and elastin, and a significant improvement in immunity which results in growth hormone’s anticancer and longevity effect.
