The Basics of Male Hormone Therapy Treatments
Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy, T-Shot, P-Shot, and Erectile Dysfunction Treatments Return You to Your Best Self
Hormone therapy isn’t just for women. Men everywhere seek the benefits of hormone replacement and boosters for improved health and better sexual performance.
Why let erectile dysfunction rule your life, when you could take control and show ED who’s the boss? Let’s explore your options for HRT and how it works to make you feel more youthful and virile.
What is Male Hormone Replacement Therapy?
For men, hormone replacement therapy isn’t really an accurate name. That’s because it’s perfectly natural for men’s testosterone levels to decrease as you age. Although your body isn’t technically missing anything at all, lowered testosterone levels can make you feel less like your normal self.
Male hormone replacement can be done with injections, patches you wear on your back, arms, or abdomen, or a topical gel.
What is the Difference Between Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy and Synthetic Hormone Therapy?
Men on testosterone therapy either receive synthetic testosterone hormones or bio-identical ones derived from plant tissues. These bio-identical hormones have the same makeup as the testosterone that your body naturally produces and are engineered to match your human hormones.
Synthetic hormones have only a similar molecular makeup to natural hormones, so they do affect your body slightly differently. Your body can tell the difference, so at Restorative Health, that’s why we recommend bio-identical hormones and other treatments that come naturally from your own body.
But hormone therapy for men is far more than just testosterone. Your body produces a full spectrum of hormones, and as you age, production slows. There are generally four types of hormone imbalance that men experience:
Andropause, which is low testosterone levels.
Adrenal fatigue, caused by low levels of cortisol.
Hypothyroidism, in which an underactive thyroid gland slows production of thyroid hormone.
Hyperthyroidism, in which your overactive thyroid gland produces too much hormone.
Restorative Health can help you resolve any of these male hormone issues. Take our hormone test to find out if bioidentical hormone therapy is right for you.
What’s the Difference Between a T-Shot and a P-Shot?
The T-shot and P-shot, both available at Restorative Health, can help you resolve multiple signs of aging and get you feeling more like yourself.
For men with low testosterone levels, the T-shot, short for testosterone shot, is a solution. The injection increases free testosterone and overall testosterone levels. The result? Firmer, long-lasting erections, decreased body fat, improved musculature, better bone density, increased red blood cell count, and better moods.
The Priapus shot, also known as the P-shot, can help improve conditions like erectile dysfunction, lichen sclerosus, Peyronie’s disease, and assist with achieving erections after prostate surgery, a common occurrence when men age.
With help from your own blood plasma, this natural therapy begins to show improvements in as little as 24 hours, up to four months for full benefits. Men who take a Priapus shot experience:
Enhanced, longer and wider penis
Improved sexual function and performance
More powerful orgasms
Increased libido and stamina
As you can see, the T-shot returns your testosterone to its regular levels, while the P-shot is like an enhancement!
What Erectile Dysfunction Treatments are Available?
In the United States alone, more than 30 million men experience symptoms of erectile dysfunction. You are not alone!
And thankfully, Restorative Health offers a range of erectile dysfunction treatment options, including T-shots and P-shots, to empower you to resolve your ED and prevent it from causing you issues in the bedroom.
What causes erectile dysfunction? For many men, low blood flow to the penis is to blame. If this is the case for you, then acoustic wave therapy is an option. A non-invasive procedure, this therapy uses acoustic waves to cause your body to form new blood vessels, for improved blood flow and stronger erections. These erections are “all you,” without additional medical intervention.
The Trimix injection is another option for living with erectile dysfunction. Trimix combines papaverine, phentolamine, and alprostadil to give you a long-lasting erection exactly when you need one. It makes sex feel spontaneous because your erection is active for about two hours, so you have an extended period of time to please your partner.
You’ll have to buck up to inject yourself with Trimix, but it’s really not a big deal at all. The medical providers at Restorative Health in Georgia, Missouri, Kansas, Ohio, or Nebraska will show you how to use the Trimix injection, so you’ll be confident when it comes time to use your new secret weapon.
