At Agenixs, we offer advanced therapies designed to maximize your health, your energy, and your well-being. Below you will find a list of questions frequently asked by our patients.
This depends on how intensive a program you want and are willing to embark on. To help someone look 2 to 5 years younger is relatively simple. To help someone look, feel, and act 7 to 20 years younger is a more intense program that once started, you will not want to stop.
We intensely research all treatments prescribed at Agenixs, and our team uses many of them personally. Everything we do is focused on improving your overall health and reducing your risks of disease.
Since it took you decades to look older, you shouldn’t expect a credible program to make you younger and healthier overnight. Every patient is different; however, in our experience, you, your family and your friends will notice the difference within weeks to months.
Of course! In all cases, improving your health improves your medical condition. We take all health considerations into account when we evaluate and make treatment recommendations.
Biologically, all hormones are interrelated. They must be present in their proper amounts and work together harmoniously to slow down the aging process. One way to accomplish this is through Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), which helps to regain youthful levels of vital hormones. With HRT, you will restore muscle loss, reduce body fat, increase bone density, improve mental speed and clarity, improve vitality, enhance sexual function, elevate mood and energy levels, increase aerobic capacity and immune function, reduce wrinkles, and improve your outlook on life.
In general, your body's natural hormones begin to decline in your mid-20s and hormone imbalance symptoms frequently present by your mid-30s. Men and women often start replacing hormones as early as 35. If you are experiencing symptoms of hormone imbalance, it is best to seek testing and treatment as soon as possible. Delays in addressing hormone imbalance can affect future health and quality of life.
Testosterone is the hormone that is responsible for maintaining mental focus, energy, metabolism, muscle mass, fat levels, and sex drive. As men age, production of the hormone testosterone begins to decline, and many men experience symptoms of low testosterone. By balancing a man's hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Therapy, we can restore your vitality and reduce the symptoms of low testosterone (also known as andropause).
Bioidentical hormones are hormones derived from plants, such as soy or wild yams, and are structurally identical to the hormones produced naturally inside the human body. Additional ingredients in each prescription vary by hormone—testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, etc., and form—creams, gels, pellets, pills, etc. Bioidentical hormones are custom-mixed formulas containing various hormones that are chemically identical to those naturally made by your body. These hormones are able to follow normal metabolic pathways so that essential active metabolites are formed in response to hormone replacement therapy.
In most cases, the imbalance of hormones contributes to weight gain. In evaluating and treating patients with weight issues, our goal is to maximize the hormones that promote weight loss while correcting the hormones that cause weight gain. As anyone who has lost weight knows, it’s about more than just what you eat.
The question should be, “What are the risks of NOT doing bioidentical hormone therapy?” If you do not use hormones to maintain your balance, you will age more quickly, have less energy, experience symptoms of menopause or andropause, and increase your risk for disease. The risks associated with hormone therapy are minimal and uncommon.
Many people are under the misconception that bioidentical hormones are not FDA-approved. Bioidentical hormones are derived from plant sources, such as soy and yams, which are approved by the FDA. Bioidentical hormones are designed in a lab and shipped to a compounding pharmacy where they are custom-designed to fit the needs of each patient. Because each prescription is custom-compounded for each individual patient, FDA approval and regulation is limited.
Because conventional (synthetic) hormones are created in specific, patented doses and delivery methods (not customized), regulation is possible.
Health Insurance is primarily designed to prevent catastrophic financial burden in the event of a medical disaster. Unfortunately, insurance cannot pay for every treatment, every lab, every test, or every doctor. Most preventative/wellness services are elective treatments and are not covered by traditional insurance plans. As individuals, we are all responsible for choosing what we wish to pay for in our lives, including health and wellness. The investment you make in your health is the greatest investment you will ever make.
The cost per year varies depending on the degree to which you wish to invest in your own health and wellness. The annual spend per patient ranges between $6,000 and $50,000 per year.
Our patients come to us from all over the U.S. and the world. We use tele-medicine video chat for virtual appointments, which is especially useful for business execs on the go. We recommend that patients hold their initial consult in person, so we can focus on developing a personal relationship with you.
