Hormone Replacement Therapy, is the science of balancing the hormonal system. As we age, the hormones in our body change. Cortisol (the stress hormone) and Insulin increase with age. Other hormones, like thyroid hormones, testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, melatonin, DHEA and growth hormones, all decrease with age. Many of these changes happen over a period of time, which allows many to think that many symptoms are “normal” as one grows older. However, most of these changes are due to hormonal decreases that can indeed be corrected.
With the science of age management, the Revitalogy method has been proven to decrease the risk of age-related disease, improve sleep quality, increase physical and sexual vitality, increase muscle tone, decrease body fat, and sharpen mental sharpness.
As we age, we undergo changes that are all too often accepted as inevitable symptoms of aging. These changes are sometimes different for men and women but include many inconvenient, and in some cases, debilitating symptoms. With the Revitalogy method, these symptoms become a thing of your past. Our pro-vitality treatments restore balance to your body and the hormonal imbalances that are individual to you.

Revitalogy’s Hormone Replacement for men is a customized program that decreases the risk of age-related disease, while increasing physical and sexual vitality. While hormonal imbalances are well researched in terms of women, andropause and testosterone deficiencies in men are often overlooked. Hormone balance is critical to healthy aging in both men and women and can provide relief for the vast array of symptoms to which an imbalance contributes.
As men enter middle age they notice changes caused by a decline in testosterone: fewer and less effective erections, fatigue, thinning skin, declining muscle mass, less strength and an increase in body fat. As part of the expanding scope of preventive medicine, Hormone Replacement therapy has significantly advanced over the years, evolving into anti-aging or age-management therapy.
Testosterone stimulates the growth of the genitals at puberty, plays a role in sperm production, fuels libido, and contributes to normal erections in males. It also fosters the production of red blood cells, boosts mood, and aids in cognition and awareness. More benefits include:
- Increased Libido
- Improved erectile function
- Healthier Heart and Blood
- Less Fat
- More Muscle
- Stronger Bones
- Improved Concentration
- Healthy Sleep Patterns
- Strengthened Bone Density
- Increased Strength and Athletic Performance
- Improved Mood
- Improved Insulin Sensitivity
- Heightened Motivation
- Increased Sense of Well-being
The Science of Hormone Replacement:
The Revitalogy approach to the science of age management is built on evidence-based, revolutionary science to help you achieve optimum vitality at any age.
The method begins by charting your AGEOGRAPHY in which a Revitalogy specialist will order comprehensive lab work and medical testing that is fine tuned to your wants and your physiological state. Revitalogy physicians can assess your current state of health, including any present hormonal imbalances, with this highly personalized health evaluation.
Physicians will customize an endocrine optimization program precisely for your needs if an imbalance is detected, and will include one or more of the following treatments:
What are Bio-Identical Hormones?
Bio: of or relating to life
Identical: similar in every detail; exactly alike
Bio-identical hormones are hormones that are identical in molecular structure to the hormones naturally made in the human body. Derived from naturally occurring sources (including vegetables such as the Chinese Yam), Bio-Identical hormones are natural hormones as opposed to synthetic hormones (which are made by chemical syntheses).
Is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Safer or More Effective than Synthetic Hormones?
There are two crucial factors of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement that make this natural therapy more effective and safer than synthetic hormones.
Bio-Identical Hormones are more effective and safer because they are:
- Derived naturally
Because Bio-identical Hormones (testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone) are derived from natural sources, our bodies can metabolize them more efficiently. Bio-identical hormone regimens are also customizable, which means that they can be modified to your specific health profile and your individual hormonal needs. Unlike synthetic hormones, which are formulated with a one-size-fits-all approach, bio-identical hormone replacement allows for a more tailor-fit hormonal regimen that is best for you.
Maintaining optimal health is our main priority at REVITALOGY; therefore, safety is equally as important as effectiveness when it comes to our Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement therapies. Because no drug, natural supplement or treatment is 100% safe on its own, it is crucial for men and women to consult with a hormone specialist before beginning any hormone treatment. REVITALOGY’s physicians conduct extensive medical testing to assess your health profile before customizing your Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).
How Are Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapies Administered?
REVITALOGY’s Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapies are administered by injection or by pellet therapy. Our Bio-Identical Pellet Therapy uses hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate your body’s normal hormonal levels. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is extremely effective because the implants, which are placed under the skin, steadily release small doses of hormones, providing optimal and stable therapy.
Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy – which can produce inconsistent hormone levels and “roller coaster” side effects, pellet implantation is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 4 to 6 months, without any erratic symptoms.
Like all of our Bio-Identical Hormone Therapies, Pellet Therapy is ideal for patients wanting the benefits of a natural hormone, without the drawbacks of a synthetic.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy
What is Testosterone?
Testosterone is the principal hormone in a group of hormones called androgens. It is a hormone made by the body and is responsible for the normal growth and development of the male sex organs and for maintenance of other sexual functions. In addition, testosterone helps build muscle mass, maintain bone density, and regulate hair growth. Although it is commonly known as “the male hormone,” testosterone also plays a crucial role in women’s health, especially in terms of aging. In men, testosterone is produced by the testes, whereas in women, testosterone is primarily secreted by the ovaries.
What is Testosterone Therapy?
Because Testosterone is important to both men and women, Ageless Medicine of the Palm Beaches provides both male and female testosterone replacement therapies. As part of the expanding scope of preventive medicine, Hormone Replacement therapy has significantly advanced over the years, evolving into anti-aging or age-management therapy.
Male Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Male Testosterone Replacement Therapy, (Also known as: TRT, Low T Therapy, and Low T Treatment) is a hormone treatment often prescribed to counter the effects of male hypogonadism. TRT administers testosterone either by injection, bio-identical pellets, or by use of testosterone skin creams or gels. TRT may also be prescribed to lessen the effects or delay the onset of normal male aging.
As men enter middle age they notice changes caused by a decline in testosterone: fewer and less effective erections, fatigue, thinning skin, declining muscle mass, less strength, and an increase in body fat.
Female Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Testosterone is also prescribed to females suffering from low-libido, low-energy, and increased (age-related) accumulation of body-fat. Typically, patients are prescribed a regimen of testosterone replacement therapy that returns testosterone levels back to where they were when the patient was in their late teens and early twenties.
Human Growth Hormone
What is Human Growth Hormone Therapy?
The pituitary gland, the master gland of the human body, is responsible for the production of several different hormones. One of these hormones, the human growth hormone (or HGH) serves many important purposes in the body that are related to growth. Among these, HGH produces an increase in cell tissue growth, increases muscle mass, contributes to strong bones, and stimulates the immune system.
Originally, HGH was used to boost the growth and development in children suffering from growth hormone deficiencies. However, HGH has an effect on body composition, not just growth. People with HGH deficiencies, generally due to types of pituitary disease, have increased body fat and decreased muscle mass and bone density. Which, consequently, are also symptoms of aging. Therefore, a group of doctors in 1990 published study in the New England Journal of Medicine called “Effects of Human Growth Hormone in Men over 60 Years Old” concluded that “diminished secretion of growth hormone is responsible in part for the decrease of lean body mass, the expansion of adipose-tissue mass, and the thinning of the skin that occur in old age.” And, most importantly for our purposes at Ageless Medicine of the Palm Beaches, the study also found that men who were given Human Growth Hormone Therapy saw improved muscle mass, decreased body fat, and better bone density.
Human Growth Hormone Therapy is the administration of Sermorelin Acetate (Sermorelin Forte Plus) Therapy, a growth hormone-releasing agonist (a substance that initiates a physiological response when combined with a receptor). It works by stimulating the pituitary gland to release growth hormone.
How is Human Growth Hormone Therapy Administered?
HGH is prescribed as liquid and a powder with a diluting solution for use as an injectable delivery method. These are the only formulations that have been approved by the FDA. HGH sprays and pills are available without a prescription and do not have FDA approval. Sermorelin Acetate is a medication that must be prescribed by a licensed physician.
What Should I Expect From Human Growth Hormone Therapy?
After commencing your customized Human Growth Hormone Therapy, you will begin to feel an increase in your energy, sex drive, skin elasticity, muscle tone, stamina, focus, bone density, and mental functions. Patients may also experience deeper, more restful sleep, fuller hair, and improved recovery time from wounds and illnesses.
Benefits of Sermorelin (Human Growth Hormone Therapy):
Increased development of lean body mass through the development of new muscle cells
Reduced body fat through lipolysis
Increased energy and vitality
Increased strength and endurance
Accelerated healing from wounds or surgery
