What are Pellets?
Pellets contain a natural plant source of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. These pellets, which are about the size of a grain of rice, are then placed in the fatty tissue underneath the skin and act as if an ovary or testicle is present. The implantation procedure is easily performed in the office.
- Is the best method to increase bone density — up to 8.3% per year
- Is implanted subdermally every 4 – 6 months
In the doctors office, using a local anesthetic, they are painlessly inserted under the skin of the hip, through a tiny incision, using a small insertion device. Then, a small piece of tape or Band-Aid is used to close the incision. The whole procedure takes only a few minutes, and the amount of discomfort one feels is actually less than getting a blood test. The medical consultation and lab work are performed on the first visit, the pellets are implanted 1 week later after the labs are reviewed. Your follow-up consultation with lab work is required 3 months after the pellets are implanted.
What is Juvederm
Over recent years, hyaluronic acid (HA) has emerged as the miracle compound for filling in wrinkles. HA is a natural substance that is found throughout your body. It gives volume to the skin, lubricates the joints and gives the eyes their shape. HA is a naturally occurring substance (complex sugar) found throughout the body in all living organisms. In the skin, HA fills the space between collagen and elastin fibers — replenishing the natural support layers lost with aging — while delivering essential nutrients and hydration. Over time, HA is gradually reabsorbed into the body.
The active ingredient in JUVÉDERM™ dermal filler, hyaluronic acid, is a naturally occurring, biodegradable complex sugar found in the human body and in all living organisms. Among other things, hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin and adds volume, contributing to the overall appearance of the skin.
Like Botox©, which has been available for more than 16 years and is approved to treat 20 conditions in more than 75 countries around the world, hyaluronic acid has been used for more than 20 years to treat multiple medical conditions, including those associated with the eye and the knee.
Supplements for Success
Lipo-BC is a unique combination of vitamins that work synergistically and helps to combat “stress”. Although these vitamins are available in a wide variety of foods; they are light and heat sensitive and are depleted with poor food storage. Also, overcooking food and cooking with water leads to vitamin loss before ingestion. Consequently this water-soluble vitamin group needs daily replenishing. Choline and Inositol are two important nutrients that work together helping the body metabolize and transport fats. Biotin works to utilize B Complex vitamins in the body and help folic acid convert to its biologically active form. Biotin contributes to the metabolism of fats, proteins and carbohydrates and cell growth.
My B TabsThis uniquely formulated combination of vitamins supports many metabolic functions including energy production, enzyme synthesis, and antioxidant activity. Research shows that Adenosine Monophosphate (AMP) is a precursor or building block for ATP. AMP is converted to ATP by the enzyme ATPase. AMP is fundamental in phosphorylation reaction and constitutes a vital metabolic link in energy, transfer mechanism, muscular contractions, enzyme reactions, carbohydrate and fat metabolism. Adenosine is a naturally occurring cellular metabolite. It is one of the four purine nucleotides responsible for protein synthesis. This product is a sublingual tablet with fruit flavoring. The addition of B-12 and folic acid are complimentary to the formula.
ChromeMate Chromium is an essential trace mineral required for maintenance of proper sugar and fat metabolism. Chromium is present throughout the body, with the highest concentration being in the liver, kidney, spleen, bone, brain and muscle. Studies show that there is a significant age-related decrease in chromium levels, which may play a part in the increased risk of diabetes and arteriosclerosis in older people. Poorly absorbed, only 2-10 percent of dietary chromium intake is absorbed by the body. Niacin bound, oxygen generated chromium polynicotinate is the most absorbed form of chromium available, mimicking the biological active form found in the body. It has been shown to reduce the amount of insulin required by diabetic patients, increase glucose metabolism, increase fat loss while sparing muscle (lean body mass), and lower serum cholesterol. A minimum dose of 200 mcg. Daily is recommended. CURB SUGAR CRAVINGS! Dietary supplements containing chromium are gaining popularity among Americans, especially those seeking a weight-loss program. Research suggests that chromium polynicotinate supplements may cause weight loss, reduce fat and increase muscle mass. Studies show that a daily supplement of 600-1000mcg of chromium along with a moderate diet and exercise program, result in significant weight loss.
Mesoderm Cream Decrease Body Fat and Lose Inches! Meso Derm , a topical cream designed to help dissolve fat, soothe the skin and improve skin texture. Each full press pump delivers 60 mg. of bio-identical compounds proven to assist in lipid metabolism and fat emulsification. Meso Derm is formulated to provide excellent absorption through the skin. The key ingredients that emulsify fat (Deoxycholic acid and Phosphatidyl choline) are bio-identical compounds similar to what the body produces. The lipid soluble qualities of these compounds ensure that both are well accepted for absorption by the skin and the small size of these molecules ensure that these compounds can easily pass between the cells. Both Deoxycholic acid and Phosphatidylcholine are so well absorbed through the skin that they are often used as carriers when transporting nutrients through the skin or through internal membranes. Enhanced Lipid Metabolism & Decrease Fatty Tissue Meso Derm may be used to enhance Meso-therapy treatments, or as a stand-alone product for personal home care.
