Cenegenics is a hormone therapy that promotes age management medicine to control the natural progression of age and enhance one’s quality of life. Hormones, in both men and women, decline with age and can cause fatigue, mood swings, disease, and obesity. This treatment focuses on using Human Growth Hormone to reverse and slow down the aging process.
The program for Cenegenics uses injections in conjunction with a low-glycemic diet, exercise, and a number of nutritional supplements to regulate hormones as a proactive means to healthy aging. They create customized health program for each individual based on an initial health analysis performed at their labs in Las Vegas.
The process starts with blood work which is used to analyze cholesterol levels, heart disease risk, kidney and liver function, cortisol and insulin levels. Next, to determine the area of focus to be addressed, a detailed history of the patient’s current health is conducted. The next step is an extensive onsite visit that includes an evaluation of current fitness output with exercise physiology testing. Onsite testing also includes a bone density and body fat analysis. Depending on each individual’s unique goals and current physical condition, a customized fitness plan is also created.
Human Growth Hormone has been approved by the FDA for treating hormone deficiency which occurs in children and adults. This medical use of the hormone is usually covered by insurance. However, HGH used for the purposes in regards to the aging process is not approved by the FDA and is not covered by insurance.
The cost of the initial exam can run from $3000-$4000 plus the cost of airfare and hotel accommodations for the trip to Las Vegas. The cost of HGH is approximately $1500 month, supplements cost approximately $1000 and the two required blood tests per year cost approximately $600-$900. At end of the year you are required to fly back to Vegas for another full exam that costs another $3000.
There are both positive and negative side effects that have been related to the use of HGH. The positive effects include improved muscle tone, decreased body fat, more energy, increased libido, sharper thinking, improved physical appearance and an improved outlook on life.
The negative effects include both short term and long term effects. The initial, less severe effects of HGH makes your body swell; you may also experience increased blood pressure and headaches. The long term effects may include cancer, cardiovascular disease, changes in behavior and may even trigger the onset of diabetes.
Controlling hormones in the later part of life is important which means you need to test them and treat any deficiencies to protect against fatigue, mood swings, disease, and obesity. The best way to stay healthy and youthful is by eating healthy meals and exercising regularly.
While people are living longer nowadays the body has not adjusted to this. The glands that produce our hormones continue to decline with age and produce fewer hormones with each passing year. Before moving forward with Cenegenics you must decide if the side effects are worth the risks and determine if you can afford the yearly expenses for this therapy. There is no such thing as the fountain of youth.
