Age Optimization Services
What Can You Do to Begin Anti-Aging Treatments?
At Hall Longevity Clinic, we encourage you to learn more about taking better care of yourself. As we cycle through life, sugars, proteins and our individualized DNA work together to make up the vital substances inside our bodies. These substances, called proteins, become the catalysts, which control all sort of important bodily functions. We know our patients want the very best in regenerative medicine treatments to keep their vitality, libido and stamina.
Becoming older results in the diminishing of proteins. Some of these substances such as testosterone and estrogen, create our sexual characteristics. It acts as a personal roadmap to how we look, feel, and act. Others, like thyroid and insulin, govern our metabolism and allow us to grow and develop. Regardless of gender, through advanced blood tests and scans, we can screen you for all deficiencies! If warranted, we will provide the correct type of hormone replacement therapy to replenish what your body needs.

The treatment involves a consultation, physical exam, EKG, SECA body mass analysis review. Moreover, we can offer a menu of specialized services.
Can There be a More Enjoyable Way to Feel Alive?
Yes, there can be a more enjoyable way to feel alive. Sex is based in our DNA and our fluctuating hormone levels. If you are a man, testosterone is the main hormone that guides your reproductive desire. If you are a woman, it is the combination of both testosterone and estrogen.
Aside from making a new version of you, from an emotional standpoint, sex can increase oxytocin levels in the body, giving you an undeniable and natural high. Aside from the more ethereal aspects of sex and love, we all know better to give than receive. What happens when we can no longer perform physically like we once did in our younger form? What if this happens long before we had ever imagined?
What are Some of the Causes of Sexual Dysfunction?
There is no doubt that stress is a cause of sexual dysfunction. Stress does not allow us to appreciate things at the level we should and increases cortisol levels in the brain. We should look at sex as a type of meditation, and controlling our anxious or negative thoughts. If our mind is elsewhere during intimate times it becomes much harder to get aroused.
No matter how stressful your schedule is you must create times for intimacy and adding a little more spice and surprise to your sex life can help as well. A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine showed evidence that those with a kinkier sex life had overall better mental health. Are you suffering from the mental anguish of not being able to sexually perform? Do you think you might be developing erectile dysfunction or just no libido? We can answer these questions and offer real solutions. Let us help you get your womanhood or manhood adjusted to make you feel!

Your Life Path: How Do You Live Enlightened and Live Long?
During the process of aging, an organism accumulates damage to macromolecules, its cells, its tissues, and its organs. We have a disparity in the following fact; the maximum lifespan for humans is around 120 years of age. However, the average lifespan of an American male is about 76 years of age, and 78 years for an American female.
Genetic differences, lifestyle, environment, behavior, and sex have a large role in the different aging rates in men and women. Substances that prevent aging, such as antioxidant enzymes reduce free radical production and DNA damage. Other issues that accelerate aging include infectious diseases or nutrition problems. Later in life, there is vulnerability to minor or major injuries and accidents caused by sensory deprivation such as, poor eyesight and hearing. Also, age-related chronic disease such as cancer or cardiovascular disease plays an increasing role in mortality.
We Believe that the Extension of Your Expected Healthspan can be Achieved by Health Optimization.
Hall Longevity Clinic advises patients to use a scientific Paleolithic meal regimen. This includes a diet of a mixture of natural meats, raw foods and herbs. Exercising has to be a non-impact, high aerobic exercise.

Ready to Begin the Process of Feeling Younger? Let’s Start with a Comprehensive Review of You!
As men age, it is no secret that the ability to feel vital and express inner drive is decreased. Modern science now allows a man to directly control his vitality and his manhood. Regardless of age, we can treat men as young as thirty-years-old up to ninety-years-old, who experience low testosterone levels (hypogonadism). The symptoms of low testosterone in men range from the following signs: aging, chemicals, drugs, environment and medications. Having one or more of these symptoms can cause low testosterone.
Lack of Energy
Muscle Wasting and Bone Loss
Risk of Cancer
Greater Risk of Death
Testosterone Replacement Therapy
As you may know, low testosterone in men may be caused by problems in the, gonads or testes, which reside in the scrotum. More uncommon, this is called primary hypogonadism. This can be brought on by genetically malformed gonads, childhood infections, like the mumps, testicular trauma, or even testicular cancer and can only be treated with Testosterone Replacement Therapy.
However, the more common causes of low testosterone, classified as, secondary hypogonadism, results from problems in the relationship between the brain and the gonads. The pituitary and hypothalamus are part of the brain that govern testicular activity, specifically the manufacture of testosterone in the gonads by a messenger hormone called luteinizing hormone, or LH. Head trauma, drugs, like opiates, stress, obesity and other causes can negatively affect the pituitary gland hormone production and can indirectly cause low testosterone by inhibiting.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin
Sometimes testosterone can drop to alarmingly low levels which can cause the above-mentioned concerns. If you think you suffer form any of these issues, we have methods to detect if you have low testosterone and high estrogen with a simple blood test. In addition, we can help support your natural production with simple tips to reduce stress and help you instill male directed exercise, proper sleeping habits, taking herbal supplements and eating foods that have higher levels of cholesterol and protein. If this does not work, we can use a drug called Clomid, or injection named Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, (hCG) along with the use of hormone supplements.
As mentioned before, the gonads or tetstes lie in the scrotum make testosterone. Once those cells stop making the critical levels of testosterone to feel sexual urges and energy, men then need to begin supplementing, or face the loss of male sexual characteristics. This usually happens to men in their late thirties and early forties. The lowering of testosterone levels in men in relation to aging is called andropause. The decline of testosterone that comes with age is responsible for depression, decreased libido, and diminished muscle tone.
Dehydroepiandrosterone or DHEA Acts as a PrecursorHormone and Can Increase Testosterone
Although scientist still do not quite know how DHEA functions in the body, several different studies including one published in the American Journal of Psychiatry of Medicine showed that DHEA significantly improved sexual disinterest as well as both physical and mental well-being. In some cases the hormone remedied other serious afflictions, such as anxiety, severe depression, and obsessive-compulsive behavior.

At Hall Longevity Clinic, We Use Three Different Medications for Our Testosterone Therapy Program:
We use cypionate and know it will increase the testosterone levels within men. The dosage is determined upon medical history, health, age and lab results. Our goal is to restore the testosterone level of our patients to achieve optimal results. With most of our patients we use injectable testosterone versus creams or patches.
Testosterone is a hormone produced in the testicles and helps maintain men’s bone density, fat distribution, muscle strength and mass, adequate levels of red blood cells, sense of well-being, and sexual and reproductive function.
When a man ages, the amount of testosterone in his body decreases. This decline begins after age 30 and continues throughout his life. The symptoms of testosterone deficiency include the following:
- Decreased sex drive
- Decreased sense of well-being
- Depressed mood
- Difficulties with concentration and memory
- Erectile dysfunction
Changes that occur to the male body during testosterone deficiency include the following: a decrease in muscle mass with an increase in body fat, a decrease in hemoglobin and possibly mild anemia, osteoporosis, decrease in body hair, and a decreased sex drive.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is used in conjunction with the testosterone therapy. This is to keep the body producing its own natural testosterone. In other words, it keeps the testicles from shutting down. This is very important because when outside testosterone is introduced to the body the natural abilities to produce your own testosterone will diminish significantly. This is not an occurrence we would want to happen with our patients. Which is why, with our unique program, we require all of our patients that are on testosterone therapy to also take HCG along with testosterone.
Anastrozole is used to control the levels of estrogen within the body. Some patients have high levels of estrogen normally or after being placed on testosterone therapy the estrogen levels may increase. Higher estrogen will cause belly fat, breast fat, mood swings, etc. Also, having higher levels of estrogen within the body will cause a decrease of testosterone within the male.

How Do I Administer Injections?
- Prepare, or mix the medication according to your instructions and draw the medication into the syringe.
- Attach a new needle to the syringe.
- You’ll be giving this medication into the gluteal muscle.
- Divide one buttock into quadrants. You will always want to give the injection in the outer, upper quadrant, almost toward the hip.
- Clean the site with an alcohol pad and allow to dry. Do not blow on it or fan the site to quicken the drying process.
- Spread the skin with your fingers and inject the needle straight down in a dart-like motion all the way.
- Pull back on the plunger a little. If you see blood enter the syringe, pull the needle out a little and inject the medication. If you do not see blood, simply inject!
