Somatotropin, the medical name for Human Growth Hormone, is produced in the laboratory using technology that copies the natural growth hormone molecule. It produces a 100% physically, chemically, and biologically identical molecule to the HGH produced by the pituitary gland. This technology is known as recombinant DNA technology.
HGH is a FDA-Approved Drug
In August, 1996, the FDA approved Human Growth Hormone for use in adult patients for the first time. Before this approval, it was only authorized for use to promote growth in shortstatured children with HGH deficiencies. Now HGH can be prescribed for hormone-deficient adults as well as to delay the aging process. Restoring the body with youthful hormone levels is an important key to living a stronger, healthier, and happier life.
Injectable HGH versus Oral HGH
As HGH is a large and complex protein, it is not absorbed intact and must be taken by injection. If HGH were taken by mouth it would be digested in the stomach and become inactivated. Injection of the Human Growth Hormone bypasses the digestive system completely. This injectable HGH requires a prescription.
Signs of Human Growth Hormone Deficiency
The psychological and emotional symptoms of HGH deficiency include a reduced sense of well being, low energy, low vitality, decreased capacity for work, and emotional lability, which encompasses mood swings, anxiety, depression, and increased social isolation. Important physical signs include increased body fat, especially around the waist (apple-shaped rather than pear shaped), decrease in muscle mass, and thin, wrinkled, or prematurely aged skin. Other symptoms may consist of the following: reduced cardiac performance, poor sleep, decreased muscle mass and strength, and little to no sex drive.
Aging takes place at a more rapid pace when your hormone levels start to decrease. Once the hormone levels begin dropping, your body starts to change. You tend to gain weight easier, youre not as athletic, you tend to be more uptight about things, and youre depressed more frequently. These are all signs that your hormone levels are getting lower. Natural hormones are protective of normal bodily functions, and aging is related to the loss of these hormones. Replacing the hormone level to youthful levels delays the aging process. HGH is said to be the Fountain of Youth.
Q. How do I get started?
A. Follow the directions on www.HGHPharm.com
Q. How long will it take before I start to see some results?
A. You can start to see and feel results as early as one week. Sometimes a little longer. The longer you are on this type of therapy the better your chances of seeing and feeling more benefits.
Q. How do I know if this therapy is right for you?
A. We are networked with certain diagnostic laboratories in Hawaii and the mainland. These laboratories handle and perform all of the required blood tests to determine where your hormone levels are and where they should be.
Q. How do I get my prescription?
A. Once we receive your laboratory test results, one of our physicians will review that information along with the information collected from the initial history and physical evaluation. If appropriate, a course of HGH can then be prescribed and initiated.
Q. How long does this process take?
A. It will take about a week and a half: this will allow time to have the blood tests performed and have the test results sent back to us.
Q. Where do I get my HGH?
A. Follow the directions on www.HGHPharm.com
NOTE: Human Growth Hormone is available only by prescription and regulated by the Federal Food and Drug Association. In order for our physicians to prescribe HGH to you they must establish a doctor-patient relationship with you. This is to make sure the therapy chosen is right for you.
The medical procedure is called Lipo-Lyte. A special mixture of purified lecithin, vitamins and nutrients is injected into the fatty areas, like the saddle bags, love handles and arm flab. These injections work by triggering fat dissolving enzymes responsible for breaking down and dissolving fat, as well as for slimming and smoothing the skin.
The Lipo-Lyte Injection system, available in Europe and the mainland for years, is now available in Hawaii.
How it works: Phosphatidyl choline (lecithin) and a special mixture of other natural vitamins and nutrients are injected into the fatty areas, like the buttocks, thighs or love handles and work by triggering enzymes responsible for breaking down and dissolving fat, as well as for slimming and smoothing the skin.
What areas can be treated ?
Lipo-Lite is not a replacement for liposuction because, so far, it has only been used on small amounts of fat. It is perfect for the person who wants to lose that last 5 pounds on the thighs, love handles, sagging stomach, the underarm flab, or those fat pads under the eyes.
