I have some very exciting news for all people in their 40’s, 50’s and 60’s.
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.
As we grow older, there is a decline in our body’s ability to produce its natural hormones such as thyroid, oestrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, melatonin and human growth hormone (HGH).
As the production of hormones decreases, our body’s ability to repair and regulate itself does also.
As our hormone levels diminish, so do the proper functions of the organs.
This leads to and accelerates the ageing process and the onset of age related degenerative diseases, such as osteoporosis, heart disease and diabetes. We also suffer menopause, andropause, weight gain, changing body shape, lack of energy and fatigue.
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 with my doctor Dr. Eccles from London 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).
For women, the challenge is to obtain the anti-aging benefits of estrogen and progesterone without increasing the risk of cancer, arterial blood clots and other side effects.
What is BHRT?
Natural hormone replacement is often referred to as “biologically identical hormone replacement therapy” (BHRT).
Natural hormones are either those substances that our bodies produce or are substances that are structurally identical to those our bodies create.
Natural Versus Synthetic Hormones
Synthetic hormones have been created by drug manufacturers that attempt to mimic natural hormone function — yet are structurally different enough from natural hormones to be patentable.
Such synthetic hormones often produce many desirable effects, but also tend to produce undesirable side effects — such as bloating, headaches, fatigue, weight gain and possibly cancer.
Natural hormones, by contrast, possess the identical structures and function as substances created by our bodies-and tend to produce the desirable effects without any of the undesirable side effects associated with synthetic hormones.
BRHT prescribes only natural hormones because of our commitment to your total well-being.
The clinic I go to prescribes only natural hormones that are biologically identical to those found in the body (not synthetic). This programme is an alternative to conventional HRT.
Hormones help our bodies to stimulate cells to rejuvenate and repair, and are vital for regulating our bodily functions.
What can you expect with BHRT?
BHRT concentrates on making you younger from the inside out by returning your hormones to their youthful levels, but never exceed what your body has already been accustomed to in its younger years.
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?
This is the usual process.
After blood and urine analysis, our programme of natural bio-identical hormone replacement and balancing replaces only the hormones that are shown to be deficient– balancing them and ensuring they all remain within normal youthful ranges.
Whilst hormone balancing is an integral and essential element of anti-ageing treatment, it should be used in conjunction with proper nutrition, exercise and a healthy lifestyle.
The aim is to create a tailored anti-ageing programme for your unique requirements, incorporating Diet & Nutrition including Nutritional Supplementation, Exercise, Hormonal replacement (where indicated), Stress Management.
Hormone treatment using bio-identical hormone therapy involves a full assessment of key hormone levels.
Once the baseline has been determined, patients receive individualised bio-identical (plant derived) hormone replacement therapy 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.
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.

How Much Does it Cost?
It can be quite expensive but when you are talking about something so important as your health and your future surely it’s worth sacrificing a summer holiday for this.
If that hasn’t made up your mind to find out more about BHRT then this case study of one of my clients will.
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 or 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.
