It’s easy then to imagine just how problematic it was for John when, in his early 40s, he began to feel himself slowing down.

“I started experiencing issues with fatigue,” John discloses. “I was tired and didn’t feel much energy. I was also having issues with mental clarity and stress. I felt stress when I shouldn’t have or intense stress when the situation didn’t necessitate that feeling. If the cat peed on the rug, I should feel a little upset, not really stressed out over it.

“In addition, I was having trouble with sleeping and with processing or getting rid of body fat. I wasn’t getting lean and building muscle despite regular training. The challenge I was having was, as I got older, I couldn’t get my lean body back. The fat wasn’t metabolizing. And at my age, if I just drove past a McDonald’s®, I put on three pounds.”

John did a little research and learned that, because hormone levels naturally decrease as people age, lower-than-normal hormone levels might have been the cause of his symptoms. To correct the problem, he tried hormone replacement therapy through a method that calls for self-injections. But he disliked both the approach and the results.

“I wasn’t feeling any different, and that was very frustrating,” the New York native states. “At the same time, I didn’t like having to give myself an injection every week. Sometimes, I forgot to do it; sometimes, it wasn’t fun; and sometimes, it was painful. All of those factors steered me away from injectable hormone therapy.

“Then I spoke to a loved one and his wife who were getting pellet hormone therapy and were getting great results. My loved one is a little younger than me, and he looked fantastic. He was lean and muscular. The same was true for his wife. She was lean and toned and said she was feeling good and sleeping great and that her stress was down.”

The difference was that John’s loved ones were going to Infinity Medical Institute in Tampa. Infinity Medical Institute treats people with symptoms such as John’s with bio-natural L3 pellet hormone replacement therapy. Infinity Medical Institute’s bio-
natural hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, is the most natural and effective solution for hormone-related issues.

“After talking to my loved one and his wife, I did more research on why pellets are a better alternative than injections,” John shares. “Pellets are more of a time-released therapy. The pellet therapy is good for three months, so I don’t have to worry about forgetting to take an injection or go to a hospital to get an injection. It made perfect sense, so I went to Infinity Medical.

With BHRT, John can get the ultimate output from his body and mind, mixed with a little soul.

“That was three years ago, and I liked that the staff at Infinity Medical was very upfront and honest with me. They told me what to expect and what not to expect. They didn’t make a lot of promises about what may or may not happen, and that was refreshing. That allowed me to immediately establish a strong level of trust in them.”

Bio-Identical Match

The bio-natural hormone pellets used by Infinity Medical Institute are derived from plants, a natural material that is molecularly changed in structure and function for a 100-percent bio-identical match to the body’s own hormones. Synthetic hormones, by contrast, can be as little as six- to eight-percent bio-identical; therefore, leading to known high risk factors.

When John first arrived at Infinity Medical Institute, the staff performed tests to determine his exact needs. It was discovered that his hormone levels were indeed quite low and were the cause of his symptoms. That made him an ideal candidate for Infinity Medical Institute’s bio-natural L3 pellet hormone replacement therapy.

“Hormones affect everything, including our growth through childhood, our sexual development, our moods, how we break down our food, our sleep patterns, stress, how much weight we gain – just about every function in the body, big and small,” observes Moriah Moffitt, MD, at Infinity Medical Institute. “They also play a role in many health conditions such as diabetes, an over- or underactive thyroid, osteoporosis, obesity, anxiety and depression.

“Our bio-natural L3 pellet hormone therapy helps to give effective results as we provide patients with a product that is all natural, and we stand behind it. It’s the most effective hormone treatment on the market because it’s replacing natural, normal hormones with biologically identical hormones that the body is used to seeing, rather than synthetic versions of the hormones.

“I’m going to be fifty-nine, and I’ve never been in better shape. When I tell people my age, nobody believes me.” – John

“Through our bio-natural hormone replacement therapy, patients such as John achieve consistent absorption of the proper, predictable levels of the hormones their bodies require for optimum health,” Dr. Moffitt offers. “This is done through the simple insertion of a pellet approximately every three to five months.”

Hormone pellets are about the size of a grain of rice and are typically injected under the skin in the hip or buttocks. To ensure the patient is receiving the proper amount of hormones, comprehensive evaluations of overall health are performed prior to the pellets being administered. Hormone levels are measured before each new pellet is inserted as well.

“We want to be sure that the treatment we administer is going to be the overall best course of action for that patient,” Dr. Moffitt informs. “We’re very thorough with the labs at every visit in order to see what has changed, and what needs to be altered. We want to be sure every patient is feeling the best they possibly can. We not only look at their labs, but we look at their overall health because other issues such as diabetes and high blood pressure can affect how the treatment is administered.”

“The staff at Infinity Medical Institute took blood tests to measure my health status as well as my hormone levels so they could properly prescribe the right amount of hormones to get me to my optimal levels,” John describes. “The goal was to get me back to the levels that I had when I was younger and felt better, was leaner, had more energy and didn’t have the other issues I was experiencing now.”

Tailored Game Plan

With her busy schedule, Donna can’t afford to be slowed by the nagging, tiring symptoms of perimenopause. Those symptoms recently began to take a toll on her nonetheless.

“Being a woman of a certain age, I began having hot flashes, which were miserable, and I was fatigued,” Donna shares. “I was also achy and overweight. I felt like I was aging at a rate faster than I wanted.

“Sleeping wasn’t that much of an issue, except for when the hot flashes woke me up at five o’clock in the morning. My biggest problem was that feeling of fatigue that sat me down in a corner and knocked me out. My energy was really low.

“I continued to exercise, but I wasn’t experiencing any of the benefits of it. I wasn’t losing weight or gaining muscle. It was like I hit a plateau. I was stagnant in my workouts.”

When Donna’s friend told her about a seminar on hormone therapy held by Infinity Medical Institute, she decided to attend. The presentation left a positive impression.

“The people from Infinity Medical Institute were very knowledgeable, upbeat and positive,” Donna describes. “I was impressed because Infinity Medical Institute’s program has a medical basis to it. Many other places are more like spas, so you don’t know how medically sound their programs are.”

Following the seminar, Donna decided to visit Infinity Medical Institute and undergo an examination. The staff’s testing of Donna’s blood revealed that her hormone levels were quite low and were therefore the cause of her unpleasant symptoms. Like John, Donna’s low hormone levels also made her an ideal candidate for BHRT.

“When I first went in and met with Dr. Moffitt, she went over my blood tests,” Donna remembers. “She was very knowledgeable, and I felt very secure with her. And again, that medical component is one of the reasons I chose Infinity Medical Institute over other places.

“Another reason I chose Infinity Medical Institute is that before they inject the pellets every three months, they do a blood test to measure your hormone levels. Other places only do blood tests once a year.

“The staff at Infinity Medical Institute treat me as an individual, and they adjust my pellets to what my blood tests show. They don’t just follow a standard game plan.”

Infinity Medical Institute provides customized treatment because people respond differently after beginning BHRT. Donna experienced a quick reaction to her hormone therapy, and the benefits remained evident months after her initial pellets were inserted.

“After the first treatment, my hot flashes were gone, and I started getting more energy,” she raves. “A couple of months later, I began to feel like I wanted to work out instead of like I had to work out.

“And once I did start working out again, I started building muscle and losing weight. Now, I feel like I’m in my forties, not my fifties. It’s amazing. Now that my hormones are consistent, my moods are level, I’m sleeping well and I’ve got my energy back.”

A Second Concern

Donna is excited by her BHRT results, but its success highlighted another concern for her. While she felt much better about her body, she felt less comfortable about her face. She believed it needed a little lift to give her a more youthful appearance to go with her renewed energy.

“Even though I felt great, I thought my face made me look tired all the time, like I just woke up,” Donna confirms. “I thought it could use a little tweak.”

The staff at Infinity Medical Institute encourage BHRT because it regenerates and restores a youthful feeling in their patients. They also offer a wide range of cosmetic services to help patients look younger.

“We’ve expanded our cosmetic services to provide a one-stop shop for whole-body wellness and youthfulness,” explains Michael Montemurro, president of Infinity Medical Institute. “This way, we can help our patients look more youthful to match how they’re feeling on the bio-natural hormones.

“Now that my hormones are consistent, my moods are level, I’m sleeping well and I’ve got my energy back.” – Donna

“We offer the popular neurotoxin BOTOX® Cosmetic, as well as dermal fillers consisting of the entire JUVÈDERM® collection: JUVÈDERM Ultra, JUVÈDERM Ultra Plus, VOLBELLA® XC, VOLLURE XC and VOLUMA® XC. All cosmetic fillers have unique properties that perform best in different areas of the face and last for different periods of time.”

Infinity Medical Institute also offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which can regenerate and tighten skin as well as change skin tone. The institute recently expanded further to provide a nonsurgical facelift called the PDO ThreadLift.

“The PDO ThreadLift is an FDA-approved procedure using PDO (polydioxanone) absorbable sutures to lift, tighten and smooth skin, improving texture,” Michael informs. “There are various types of threads used to achieve the desired results.

“Smooth threads are used for fine lines and improving overall skin texture, twisted threads are used for deep folds or wrinkles and barbed threads are used to visibly lift the skin around the face, eyes and neck, commonly referred to as a mini facelift.”

Results are immediate using barbed threads, but all three threads force the skin to produce collagen, which lifts the skin and fills in lines over the following three to six months. Threads are absorbed throughout that time as they are replaced with new collagen.

“First, I was treated with XEOMIN®, which is a neurotoxin like BOTOX Cosmetic,” Donna relates. “I got the treatment in my forehead and around my eyes to soften the lines and wrinkles.

“My face was a little saggy because the tissue starts to break down as people age. I recently had a filler injected into my cheeks and chin to build up that tissue again. I also underwent a PDO ThreadLift to tighten up my cheeks.”

Donna is looking and feeling better and gives Infinity Medical Institute an A+ grade for making that happen.

Perfect Score

Donna took advantage of several cosmetic treatments available at Infinity Medical Institute. She says the results appear very soft and natural. They make her look as good as she feels on the bio-natural hormone therapy.

“It’s not like a facelift, where people look like the Joker, with their skin stretched tight like a balloon,” she elaborates. “Instead, most people don’t even realize I had anything done. They just say I look well-rested and happier.

“The woman who injected the filler started me off with a little bit, just enough to fill in some creases, but not enough to change the shape of my face. It tightened up around my cheeks and neck because those are the areas that bothered me most.”

Donna says she began to see a difference in her face and neck within a week of receiving the dermal filler and PDO ThreadLift. That and the results of her other treatments earned Infinity Medical Institute’s staff a perfect score from the entrepreneur.

“The treatments are slowly tightening and taking away the waddle under my neck and the creases in my cheeks,” she enthuses. “Now, I look like I’m smiling instead of grumpy. And I know there’s going to be even more tightening.

“I can’t say enough good things about the people at Infinity Medical Institute. There’s a doctor who treats me, a nurse who works with me and owner/managers who check on my progress. It’s so good to know they actually care about me and care that I’m getting good results.

“My experience at Infinity Medical Institute rates an A-plus. On a scale of one to ten, I give them a ten.”

Bonus Benefit

John raves about Infinity Medical Institute in much the same way Donna does. And why not? Within weeks of starting BHRT, John noticed a difference in his mental functioning. He also found himself thinking clearer, sleeping better and his stress level decreased.

“It took a few months before I started feeling better physically, but once I did, my body began to get leaner and a lot more muscular,” John shares. “I also had more energy and a stronger libido. And the improvement got progressively better.

“I’m still working out and eating well, I have been all along, but now I’m seeing the results of doing those things when I didn’t see anything before. It’s not that I changed those habits. It’s just that with BHRT, I’m now getting results from those habits.”

John began BHRT at Infinity Medical Institute nearly three years ago. He remains astonished by the degree of success he continues to experience from the therapy, and he’s thrilled by the outcome he’s seeing today.

“I feel great,” he raves. “I’m going to be fifty-nine, and I’ve never been in better shape. When I tell people my age, nobody believes me. That’s a nice bonus.”

Pellet therapy turned out to be a much better alternative for John than injectable hormones. He recognizes Infinity Medical Institute for their extensive knowledge of hormones and hormone replacement therapy, and for their integrity and thoughtful patient care.

“I absolutely recommend Infinity Medical Institute over any of the other hormone replacement centers I interviewed or used in the past,” John says. “There are other clinics out there that may do the same thing, but Infinity Medical Institute’s level of caring, kindness and sincerity sets them apart.

“They really cared about my well-being and bent over backward to make sure I got optimal results, and they’re super honest. Because of that, I feel very safe and secure, and I have a very high level of trust in Infinity Medical Institute. I’ll never go anywhere else.”
