We encourage you to learn more about taking better care of yourself. Just a few facts about aging process. As we cycle through life, every amino acid we make in our cells will become the proteins that make up our vital substances inside our bodies. These substances, called proteins, become the catalysts which control all sorts of important bodily functions. At Hall Longevity Clinic, we know our patients want the very best in regenerative medicine treatments to keep our vitality, libido and stamina.
As we become older, these proteins begin to diminish and become less structurally viable. Some of these substances, like sex hormones; 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 sex, through advanced blood tests and scans, we can screen you for all deficiencies!

Can there be a more enjoyable way to feel alive?
We think so. Sex is based on our DNA and our incumbent and 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 etheral aspects of sex and love, we all know better to give than receive. The joy of your own orgasm is only heightened by that of your partner’s. But what happens when we can no longer perform physically like we use to? And 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 plays a large role. 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, behavior, and sex may account for these different aging rates in men and women. May also include individual efficiency of DNA repair. Types and quantities of antioxidant enzymes, and different rates of free radical production. Average lifespan in a population is also lowered by infant and child mortality. Which are frequently linked to infectious diseases or nutrition problems. Later in life, vulnerability to accidents and age-related chronic disease such as cancer or cardiovascular disease play an increasing role in mortality.
We believe that the extension of your expected lifespan can be achieved by health optimization.
Hall Longevity Clinic advises a scientific paleolithic meal regimen, non-impact, high aerobic exercise, and avoidance of hazards such as smoking, alcohol, and overuse of pharmaceutical medications.
At Hall Longevity Clinic, we envision a world where the majority of our patients reach the maximum lifespan!
The secret is out: Hall Longevity Clinic provides a way to maintain and continue health through the years. As south Florida’s premier anti-aging facility, we provide you with a comprehensive program to determine what approach is best for you to reduce the unwanted effects of aging.

Andropause Therapeutic Options
Being a man and enjoying the experience. As a thirty year old or a ninety-year-old man, experiencing low testosterone levels (hypogonadism) may be the worst feeling in life. The symptoms of low testosterone in men range from the following signs and symptoms. Having one or many of these may suggest your have a form of low testosterone.
Lack of Energy
Muscle Wasting and Bone Loss
Risk of Fall
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 and 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, result 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 lutenizing hormone, or LH. Head trauma, drugs, like opiates, stress, obesity and other causes we don’t always understand. It can negatively affect the pituitary gland hormone production, which is responsible for making LH, 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 inexpensive blood test. As well, 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 and 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 supplemental hormone and can increase the levels of 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.
We can do to help you in a private and sensitive environment! Once you decide to make the first step, red the following contract and just let us know!
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
Difficulties with concentration and memory
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.
At Hall Longevity Clinic, we use three different medications for our testosterone therapy program:
will increase the testosterone levels within a male. 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. We have not seen the desired results on behalf of our patients while using the creams or patches.
(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. Your 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.
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.
