Did the New Year Inspire a New You?

Do you make a New Years Resolution Each Year?

Some of the most common New Years resolutions include: healthier eating habits, exercising more, losing weight, optimizing hormones, restoring hair loss, increasing sexual function, and getting aesthetic procedures to improve appearance.

No matter what you’re working on this New Year, set yourself up for success by making a plan. Let’s look at some of these self-improvement treatment options and see which one may be right for you!


There are many things that can lead to unwanted weight gain such as hormonal issues, a sedentary life, poor diet, or even the process of aging.

Many people have weight loss success with medical supervised weightloss treatment options. Vitamin Injections, Appetite Suppressants and Wegovy (Semaglutide) Injections are a few weight loss management solutions that provide a positive relationship with food to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

“I’ve been losing an average of 2-3 pounds per week. I never feel super hungry or like I’m starving myself, like I did on other programs”

- Greg

Optimize Your Hormones

As you age, your hormone levels decline. Hormones are chemical substances that are used to control internal activities in our bodies, such as metabolism, reproduction, growth, mood, and sexual development.

All our hormones work together to regulate processes in our bodies. However, several factors can cause our hormones to change, including:

  • Aging (andropause)

  • Stress

  • Genetics

  • Other underlying health issues

When your hormones become unbalanced, this can cause you to feel bad and not like your youthful self. Bioidentical hormone optimization therapy is intended to help when testosterone, estrogen and/or progesterone levels decrease in the body as you age.

Bioidentical pellet therapy can mimic the natural molecular structure of the hormones you have naturally in your body. With a simple quick procedure, a pellet(s) is inserted under the skin where it/they attaches to capillaries that take hormones 24/7, as needed, for 3-6 months.

After receiving pellet therapy, patients frequently report: improved sleep, mood, energy levels, cognitive function, and sexual function, as well as a reduction in joint pain and belly fat.

Restoring Hair Loss

It is normal to lose a little hair every day. However, if you notice excessive hair loss or thinning of hair, then you may be experiencing symptoms of hair loss.

Here are some of the most common hair loss causes:

  • Genetics

  • Hormonal Changes

  • Excessive Stress

  • Poor Diet

  • Smoking

  • Covid 19

The good news is, there are multiple treatment options available! Studies have shown that receiving PRP injections every 2 to 3 weeks for 3 months can lead to improvements in the number of hairs, the thickness of those hairs, and the strength of the hair roots.

Healthy lifestyle guidance is another option to treating hair loss. Beyond immunity, research has shown that individuals following five key habits—eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, keeping a healthy body weight, not drinking too much alcohol, and not smoking—live more than a decade longer than those who don't.

Increase Sexual Function

Sexual dysfunction can be caused by things other than underlying disease. Examples include: stress, drug use, alcohol consumption, tobacco use, bicycling, or relationship factors and hormonal imbalance.

Sexual dysfunction affects both men and women. Physical issues like heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, and smoking can all cause sexual dysfunction. On the other hand, depression, anxiety, stress, relationship problems, and other mental health concerns can also interfere with sexual health.

Common solutions for healing sexual dysfunction may include the P-Shot, O-Shot, Hormone Therapy or other supplements. The P-Shot involves taking platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your blood and injecting it into your penis. This means your medical provider takes your own cells and tissues and injects them into your penile tissues to promote tissue growth and blood flow give you better erections. The female equivalent to this treatment is called the O-Shot.

One of the most successful treatment options for sexual dysfunction is bioidentical hormone therapy. Many patients report increased sex drive after receiving pellet therapy. Some people even reported that pellet therapy SAVED THEIR MARRIAGE.


Aesthetic procedures are a quick and simple way to enhance your appearance, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and other common signs of aging.

BOTOX is most known for smoothing out wrinkles and creases, it can also make small adjustments to your jawline.

Fillers correct moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and skin folds. They can also increase fullness of lips, cheeks, chin, under-eye hollows, jawline, and back of the hand.

So if you want to look a bit more youthful, then you may want to consider these aesthetic options.
