COMPREHENSIVE LAB TESTING AND INTERPRETATION
A detailed blood and urine test panel is completed to assess overall nutritional and metabolic health. This testing also includes screening for vitamin and mineral levels, amino acid and essential fatty acid levels, toxic metabolic by-products, and oxidative stress markers. The results of this extensive testing will help your Midwest Hormone Centers providers recommend appropriate dietary, lifestyle, and clinical interventions to insure optimal nutritional health.
ANTI-AGING AND METABOLIC SUPPORT
Glutathione Over time, normal metabolic function can cause a build-up of harmful by-products known as free radicals or reactive 02 species. These molecules lead to oxidative stress and cellular damage. Glutathione is a potent antioxidant that is a vital part of the body’s mechanism to protect from damage caused by oxidative stress. Glutathione can be found in every cell of the human body. Supplemental injections of glutathione can help detoxify and protect the body from the additive effects of aging. Additionally, glutathione has been shown to improve immune function, support cardiovascular health, and improve skin elasticity. Glutathione may also help in the prevention of certain chronic diseases and removal of cancer causing toxins.
Lipotropic Lipotropic injections are a combination of three agents that can improve fat metabolism and promote the utilization of stored fat as an energy source. When used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise regimen, lipotropic injections can lead to fat loss and improved body composition. The components of lipotropic injections are also known to improve liver health, cholesterol metabolism, and cellular membrane function.
Vitamin B12 Vitamin B12 is an essential component of cellular metabolism, protein synthesis, blood cell production, and nervous system function. B12 injections help promote ideal hormone function as well as fat and carbohydrate metabolism. B12 supplementation often results in feelings of improved energy and vigor.
Vitamin D Vitamin D is necessary for proper bone health and calcium metabolism. Vitamin D may also be involved in heart health, immune system function, and cancer prevention. Symptoms of low Vitamin D levels include fatigue, bone and joint pain, muscle pain and weakness, and depression. If low levels are detected, aggressive replacement therapy is needed to retore levels and relieve symptoms.
Standard and Custom Treatments to Optimize Metabolic Function
The human body is a complex, dynamic organism that requires the precise function of many interrelated systems to function optimally. These intricate systems cannot themselves function as necessary without adequate nutrition. The providers at Midwest Hormone Centers are able to evaluate and treat nutritional and metabolic deficiencies in order to restore proper function of the body as a whole. In addition to hormonal balancing, we offer:
I.V. NUTRITIONAL SUPPORT
After consultation and lab review, Midwest Hormone Centers providers are able to prescribe a custom I.V. nutritional support regimen that is designed to address your specific needs. We also offer Elite and Standard level I.V. treatments to help correct nutritional deficiencies, improve body composition, treat chronic medical conditions, improve immune system and metabolic function, recover from illness, injury, or surgery, and improve athletic performance. Our nutritional specialist is also available to provide additional dietary recommendations. For more information about I.V. infusion treatments, please contact one of our locations.
IMMUNE SYSTEM SUPPORT
In addition to I.V. infusions aimed to improve immune function, we also have available injectable treatments that help to prevent or treat common respiratory and gastrointestinal ailments. These treatments are safe, natural (non-pharaceutical) options that can reduce the risk of acquiring or limit the severity of common viral illnesses. Please contact one of our centers for more information.
GROWTH HORMONE SUPPORT
Growth hormone, released by the pituitary gland, is vital not only to normal development, but also in the maintenance of a multitude of bodily processes. Similar to other hormones, growth hormone levels also decline significantly with aging (a process known as somatopause). Signs and symptoms associated with decreased growth hormone levels in adults include decreased energy, decreased muscle mass and bone density, increased fat mass and cholesterol, decreased libido, decreased skin elasticity, and increased risk for cardiovascular disease and cognitive decline. Although direct growth hormone replacement is not available to treat symptoms associated with somatopause, we at Midwest Hormone Centers have treatments available to simulate the body’s own production of growth hormone. These treatments include oral and injectable options; both options are safe and generally well tolerated with no significant side effects. Please contact one of our centers and schedule a consult to discuss whether our growth hormone program is right for you.
