I have some very exciting news for all my clients in their 40’s, 50’s and 60’s (that’s most of you!).
I have teamed up with a top Harley Street hormone specialist, Dr Eccles, to bring you a new hormone optimisation service.
As many of you are aware, getting into shape does not simply come down to exercise and a healthy diet, there are other factors to consider. Our hormones play a huge part in our internal physiology, and if out of balance hormonally, it can make it more or less impossible to lose fat.
Unfortunately when we age our body struggles in producing its natural hormones. These hormones include oestrogen, testosterone, progesterone, DHEA, human growth hormones, thyroid and melatonin.
Our body is no longer able to repair and regulate itself as well due to the decrease in hormones production. The organs are also not able to function to full capacity as hormone levels decrease.
The ageing process then starts to speed up and the body will begin to suffer from problems associated with the aging process like diabetes, osteoporosis and heart disease. Not just them, as we age we can suffer from weight gain, menopause, changing body shape, andropause, low energy levels and tiredness too.
People have used hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for many years and to differing levels of success. Some synthetic HRT for women was strongly linked with a high risk for cancer.
Why should you have to choose between your quality of life and increasing your risk for certain cancers when engaging in HRT therapies?
For women over the age of forty this has been the choice for hormone balancing for generations, leading to a precarious lack of physical and emotional wellbeing for women.
As rates of cancer instances rise throughout the world, the use of synthetic Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) has become widely studied for its impact on raising the risk of developing cancer.
That is not an option and Dr. Eccles and his team are comfortable with and are pleased to offer an advanced whole health alternative hormone treatment for men and women.
Many forward thinking people are benefiting from a NEW type of hormone replacement therapy, called bio identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
Females today face the challenge of getting all of the anti aging advantages of progesterone and estrogen but without suffering the risks. The risks and side effects include an increased risk of arterial blood clots and even cancer.
What is BHRT?
BHRT stands for ‘Biologically Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy’.
Our body produces substances which are natural hormones or the hormones are exactly identical to ones which our body make.
Natural Versus Synthetic Hormones
Drug manufacturers created synthetic hormones, these try to copy natural hormone function, but they are different to natural hormones so they are patentable.
There are advantages to synthetic hormones but there are also some side effects, these include weight gain, fatigue, headaches, bloatedness and even an increased possibility of cancer.
You don’t get these side effects with natural hormones. As they are identical to the structures and functionability of the hormones produced by our body then you get the positive effects without the bad effects I just mentioned.
Dr Eccles only prescribes natural hormones as they are very committed to good health and well being.
Only bioidentical natural hormones to the ones found in the body are prescribed at the clinic, it is an alternative to HRT.
Hormones have a big impact on our regulation of bodily functions plus they aid with the stimulation of cells so they can repair and rejuvenate.
What to expect?
The clinic focuses on allowing you to feel younger and more energetic both inside the body as well as looking it outside, this is done by getting your hormones back to their younger days.
How Can It Help Me?
Patients enjoy the peripheral benefits of Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, which include:
- More energy
- Sharper Memory
- Better concentration
- Less Fat, more muscle tone
- Hair regrowth
- Stronger bones
- Stress resistance and immunity improvement
- Mood elevation and moderation
- Younger looking skin
- Improved heart and sexual functioning
How Does This Work?
It involves the replacement of the deficient hormones which are found through a blood and urine analysis with natural bio identical hormones. The hormones are fully balanced and in a youthful range.
The balance of our hormones have a massive effect on anti aging but there is a lot more too it. This hormone therapy needs to be combined with exercise, a good diet and a healthy all round lifestyle.
Dr Eccles programme create an anti ageing programme which is specific to you, this takes into account things like your nutrition, management of stress levels, exercise and supplementation.
A full assessment of key hormone levels are carried out using Bio Identical Hormone Therapy.
After the baseline has been found, patients will then receive individualised bio-identical (plant derived) HRT with ongoing blood monitoring to evaluate effect.
A urine assessment to demonstrate hormone metabolism and safety checks for breast and uterine condition accompany longer term oestrogen use.
The process begins with you completing a questionnaire and doing a blood and saliva test, the blood and saliva test can be done at home. I can help you with this if you need.
After around 14 days your results will be back from the lab.
Next your initial consultation begins with Dr. Eccles who is one of the world’s leading integrated medicine physicians and an expert in the application of bio identical hormone replacement.
Dr Eccles will decide what the best treatment plan is and prescribe you your hormones.
You then have three months on the new protocol and you may have another consultation depending on how everything is going.
If the doctor is happy and you are happy, then you will only need an annual check up, costing £459 (blood and saliva test and a consultation).
Women are no longer limited in their choices between enduring menopausal symptoms, or risking the side effects of synthetic hormone therapy.
Women face a perplexing dilemma starting around age 40 to 45.
The amount of sex hormones naturally produced by their body dwindles, causing a wide range of menopausal miseries in many, including hot flashes, depression, vaginal dryness, anxiety.
The menopausal decline in hormone production is a direct cause of premature ageing.
What Are The Risks?
The research that has been done suggests the risks are low. Especially compared to traditional synthetic HRT.
Natural bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a safe and effective treatment for the restoration of youth and wellness.
The advantage of BHRT when used with a healthy lifestyle:
- Increased levels of concentration
- Improve sexual performance and an increase in libido
- Reduced fat levels
- Hair growing back
- Increase in energy levels
- Improved mood
- Increased muscle mass
- Immune system is stronger
- More resilient to stress
- Tougher bones
- Memory improvements
- Healthier younger skin
How Much Does it Cost?
£494. (£299 for the blood test and £195 for the consultation)
Plus the same cost again in 3, 6 or 12 months. This is different for each person, depending on your initial response to the hormones.
The cost includes one consultation (at the clinic in London or via Skype) and the blood and saliva tests.
Plus as a client of mine you will be entitled to a free 3D Heart Map Test, worth £50. You must attend the London clinic for this.
It does NOT include the cost of the prescribed hormones, which are around £55 per hormone for a 3 month supply.
You will need an annual check up, costing £494, as long as you are on the hormone therapy.
Business Owner, Director
One of my personal training clients has increased his income significantly since getting fitter and starting on the testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).
He said it has all been down to the hormones.
He said “It’s been life changing, and I feel younger and sharper than ever.”
He has attributed his increase in business results all down to the new regimen of good food, exercise and most importantly the testosterone gel he rubs on his shoulders every morning.
He said “I was thinking about taking more of a back seat in my business, I was tired. I felt I was losing my passion (and patience) for it all.”
“After speaking with Richard and discussing my symptoms (irritable, memory loss and loss of libido and strength of erections and ejaculation) he suggested I complete a questionnaire online to assess my hormone levels.
“The questionnaire suggested my testosterone was very low. He then referred me for a consultation with the Doctor. I remember thinking at the time, surely my hormones can’t be causing all these problems.”
“Now I realise it was a wise move, they were. I am now fitter, healthier and am much more productive than I have been in years, it really has given me my energy back.”
“Now I feel like I did 20 years ago, full of energy and confidence. My libido is back to normal and I have the hunger back for my business.”
“I’m delivering great presentations, my memory is sharp, even my staff have commented.”
“Now, when I come to retire, not only will I be fitter and healthier, I will have a better income and will be able to sell my business for more. This has been an additional blessing, not what I had expected at all.”
“It’s been a great investment, for me and my business.”
Men in their 50’s are usually at their peak in experience, success, knowledge and business acumen but at the same time all this is happening their energy and drive is sometimes at its lowest.
Testosterone replacement therapy balances this equation out. It can take your testosterone back to what it was in your twenties.
It’s a great investment.
Giving experienced and successful men the opportunity to restore their testosterone levels gives them the drive and energy to make their last 10 or 20 years in life and in business their best, financially and emotionally.
Allowing you to have a more fun and enjoyable retirement with the ones you love.
