When your hormones are unbalanced, one of the first things to go is a good night’s sleep. This is often followed by a myriad of other symptoms for both men and women. At times this can cause complete disruption of one’s life. Read more about the symptoms of hormone imbalance and how optimizing your levels can improve your symptoms and have you feeling better in a matter of weeks!
Aging in both sexes is associated with progressive declines in hormones and negative effects on energy, sleep, mood, libido and weight. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and becomes wrinkled and loose, we gain fat and lose both muscle and bone mass. All of this is largely due to the decrease in Growth Hormone (GH).
Nutrient IV Therapy
Dr. Agin has been using Nutrient IV Therapy in his practice for over a decade. His clinically proven protocols are used at other physician’s offices across the United States. At Metabolix, we use IV therapy protocols for general nutrition, weight loss, age management, immune function, performance enhancement, as well as aiding in the improvement and prevention of many chronic medical conditions, including Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s, Arthritis, Diabetes, Fibromyalgia, Autism, and many more.
Due to over-farming and nutrient depleted soil, we can no longer rely on diet alone to get adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals. Nutritional aids are no longer just dietary supplements; they are requirements. Even with high quality oral supplements, because they must pass through the digestive system, only a small percentage (5-15%) is actually absorbed into the bloodstream. Nutrient injections, however, offer a 100% absorption rate by bypassing the gut entirely. This means you feel the benefits of supplementation faster and on a much greater scale than with oral supplementation alone.

Genetic Testing for Hereditary Cancers
Survival rates for cancers covered by Color’s Hereditary Cancer Test increase dramatically when caught at an earlier and more treatable stage. Knowing your risk can help you take action. For example, you can work with our medical practitioners to create a personalized screening and prevention plan, designed to help reduce your risk of developing cancer.
MTHFR stands for the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase gene (methyl-ene-tetra-hydro-folate-reductase). The MTHFR gene is responsible for making a functional MTHFR enzyme, this gene is responsible, in part, for converting vitamin B9 (folic acid) into a form your cells can use for metabolism. If you aren’t able to convert inactive B9 into levomefolic acid, the effects multiply as other metabolic processes are affected, and cellular processes slow to a halt.
Having deficiencies in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants or other essential micronutrients have been shown to suppress the immune system which can contribute to chronic disease processes. A simple blood test can measure the micronutrient levels within the white blood cells, specifically the lymphocytes. Since lymphocytes have about a 6-month lifespan, the nutrient levels accumulated in these cells represent a history of one’s nutrient status, rather than just a snapshot of recent nutrient intake.
Telomeres are sections of genetic material at the end of each chromosome. Telomere Testing consists of a simple blood test that can determine the length of one’s telomeres in relation to the their age. Age adjusted telomere length is the best technique to date to evaluate biological age. Consecutive evaluation of telomere length is an indicator of how rapidly one ages relative to a normal population. Therapies directed at slowing the loss of telomere length may slow aging and age-related diseases.
Ketamine IV Therapy
Ketamine Therapy is a medical therapy used to treat some psychiatric conditions as well as enhance cognition and memory. Ketamine is given in doses much lower than when it is used as an anesthetic and is administered very slowly through an intravenous (IV) infusion.
