Restore Youth and Vitality

BHRT restores energy, enriches sex life.

Being a group fitness and Tabata instructor, Debra Ruyle was dismayed when she started experiencing low energy last year. The former snowbird from Tuscaloosa, Alabama didn’t think it was normal exhaustion from activity that was slowing her down. The fatigue was too severe. Plus, she was experiencing other uncomfortable feelings at the same time.

Debra and Walter “Ken” Ruyle were treated with bio-natural hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) at Infinity Medical Institute in Tampa.

“I just didn’t have the energy to do the things I wanted to do,” Debra recounts. “By about one-thirty in the afternoon, I felt like I had hit a brick wall. I was totally tired. I was done, and I’d have to take a two-hour nap.

“I was working out, but I wasn’t getting anything out of the workouts. I couldn’t build muscle, and I wasn’t building up any energy or strength. What’s worse, I was also having hot flashes and a lot of issues with brain fog. I had night sweats, and sex had become painful, which it never had been before. I really hated that.”

Debra says these symptoms started in April 2017. At the time, she was forced to have a second mastectomy because the breast implants from her first mastectomy ruptured, causing a deformity in her chest cavity.

“My first mastectomy was done as a prophylaxis,” Debra shares. “Both of my grandmothers and my aunts had breast cancer, and I was at high risk for getting it. I was BRCA-positive and had three lumpectomies. My doctor said it didn’t look good for me, so I had the preventive breast surgery.”

For two months, Debra lived with her fatigue. She didn’t think anything could be done about it. Then in June, while visiting her plastic surgeon’s office, she discovered that help was available, and it was close to home in Tampa.

“There was an article in Florida Health Care News, which was sitting on the table there in the waiting room,” Debra recalls. “It was about Infinity Medical Institute, and it was a story about a woman who had low energy, hot flashes and all kinds of problems. I thought, Golly, it’s like they wrote this article about me. I’m going to make an appointment with them.

Infinity Medical Institute treats people with symptoms like Debra’s with bio-natural L3 pellet hormone replacement therapy. This type of hormone replacement therapy is the most natural and effective solution for hormone-related issues. Debra hadn’t considered her hormones as the source of her miseries, but thinks perhaps she should have.

“When I was twenty-nine, I had an emergency hysterectomy and was never put on hormone therapy,” she relates. “When I went to Infinity Medical Institute, they drew my blood and found I had no hormones whatsoever, like I had none. They said I had the lowest estrogen level they’d ever seen.

“The doctor said my lack of energy, night sweats and everything else I was experiencing was basically because of my low estrogen, testosterone and progesterone. She said I was extremely far off where I needed to be, even for my age. I’m sixty-three.”

Consistent Absorption

“When Debra initially came into the office, we performed very thorough testing to determine her exact needs,” notes Moriah Moffitt, MD, at Infinity Medical Institute. “Her hormone levels were extremely low, making her an ideal candidate for our bio-natural L3
pellet hormone replacement therapy.

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

The bio-natural hormone pellets used by Infinity Medical Institute are derived from wild yam plants, a natural plant material that is molecularly changed in structure and function for a 98-percent bio-identical match to the body’s own composition. Synthetic hormones, by contrast, can be as little as six- to eight-percent bio-identical.

“Hormones affect everything, including our growth through childhood, our sexual development, our moods, how we break down our food, sleep patterns, stress, how much weight we gain – just about every function in the body, big and small,” Dr. Moffitt observes. “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 us an edge as we provide patients with a product that is all natural, and we stand behind it,” Dr. Moffitt continues. “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.”

To be sure the patient is receiving the proper amount of hormones, comprehensive evaluations of overall health are performed prior to the pellets being administered.

“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 elaborates. “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, like diabetes or high blood pressure, can affect how the treatment is administered.”

Skeptic Convinced

People react differently after beginning bio-natural L3 pellet hormone replacement therapy. Debra responded right away to the treatment. She was amazed by how good she felt in such a short time.

“I noticed a difference within a week and a half of starting therapy,” she marvels. “I felt so much better, I couldn’t get over it. I kept thinking, Is this going to go away? I hope it never goes away. I feel great.

“After that time, I noticed I could go all day. I didn’t need a nap anymore. I had more energy working out, and I was more focused. The hot flashes and foggy brain went away. The sex was better. It was no longer painful.

“One of the other issues I had was with sleeping all night. I’d wake up every couple of hours. I don’t have that issue at all anymore. I sleep like a baby.”

Debra’s husband, Walter “Ken” Ruyle, noticed the difference in Debra as well and became curious. He thought, “My energy is pretty low. I’m hitting the wall. Maybe I’ll give Infinity Medical Institute and their bio-natural hormone pellet therapy a try.

“The biggest thing for me was the energy loss,” Ken states. “I’m seventy-three, ten years older than Debra, and we would do something in the morning and that would be it for the day. If I sat down in the chair, I’d struggle to get out of it. It wasn’t like I was so sick that I couldn’t move; I was just worn out.

“My whole life, I’ve been active doing things outside, riding motorcycles, golfing and playing any sport imaginable. It got to the point where I was saying, I’d just as soon stay home because I’m going to be tired. If it was a festival or something where you had to walk around all day, I just couldn’t do it. I’d find myself looking for a bench to sit on.”

When Ken saw Debra’s energy, he thought, “I’ll try anything to get some energy back.” At the same time, however, he was uncertain about the validity of bio-natural hormones as a treatment for low energy and other symptoms.

“I’ve worked in the health care field my whole life, so I was skeptical at first,” he admits. “During my career as a medical center director, bio-identical hormone therapy was not a popular thing. It wasn’t done in hospitals, and I just hadn’t seen it.

“After I sat down and talked with Dr. Moffitt and the nurse, I changed my mind dramatically. During my initial interview, I listened to them talk about the background of bio-natural hormones, and they gave the research behind their procedure. I decided to give it a try.”

Patients getting bio-natural L3 pellet hormone replacement therapy have their blood drawn a week before they get their pellets. This is done so Dr. Moffitt and the staff can evaluate the patient’s hormone levels and determine their needs when mixing the formula for their pellets.

“For me, there were two main factors,” Ken discloses. “One big thing was my testosterone level was very low. This was contributing to my lack of energy, so my pellets contained a lot of testosterone.”

While Debra noticed a difference within two weeks of starting the bio-natural hormone pellets, it took a little longer for the effects of the therapy to kick in for Ken. Still, he was very satisfied with the changes he felt once he received a boost in his hormone and vitamin levels.

“My response wasn’t instantaneous, but it was still pretty quick that I started feeling good,” Ken reports. “I felt a difference between the first and second treatment, so within three months, but it wasn’t instant, like Debra’s. I never felt really bad, but I started to have more energy, and our sex life was better.”

From the Inside Out

Dr. Moffitt; Michael Montemurro, president of Infinity Medical Institute; and the staff truly care about each patient and take the time to get to know each person they are treating.

Debra and Walter “Ken” Ruyle were treated with bio-natural hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) at Infinity Medical Institute in Tampa.

Debra and Ken are both feeling more energetic
following BHRT therapy.

“Every patient is unique, and we understand that,” Dr. Moffitt comments. “We get to know each one and understand their lifestyle so we can treat them appropriately.”

“At Infinity Medical Institute, we’ve been offering bio-natural pellet hormone therapy for nine years,” Michael offers. “We take a very therapeutic approach. We customize the treatment for each patient, and we use a superior-quality product. We cater to our patients and make sure they get the best possible care, as well as exceptional results.”

“We want to be sure the treatment we administer is going to be the best overall course of action for each patient,” Dr. Moffitt
adds. “Everyone has unique needs. Many people come in saying they’re not feeling vibrant, energetic, and they have other various symptoms. Our aim for those seeking hormone replacement is to make them feel good from the inside out.”

“We work very closely with everyone to optimize and restore their hormone levels to what they were when they were in their prime – back in their twenties,” Michael stresses. “That’s our goal, and that’s why we get such significant results for our patients.”

Michael notes that people often reach middle age and start experiencing symptoms such as lack of energy, difficulty sleeping and loss of sex drive and strength.

“When these symptoms start occurring, people need to visit us at Infinity Medical Center and have their hormones checked,” he declares. “Once we get their hormone levels optimized with the bio-natural L3 pellet hormone replacement therapy, their lives will change significantly for the better.

“The body can never restore lost hormones unless it is done endogenously, like we do here with the bio-natural L3 pellet therapy.”

“The Right Choice”

Infinity Medical Institute’s bio-natural L3 pellet therapy provided significant, positive results for both Debra and Ken. The couple agrees that the treatment made a beneficial impact on their lives.

“The hormone therapy resolved every issue I had,” Debra enthuses. “I have more energy; I can go all day. I teach fitness classes now. I’ve built muscle and lost seventeen pounds. I’m sixty-three years old, and I went back to school. The therapy has really changed me and my husband.”

“Debra and I always had a good sex life,” Ken adds, “but it’s outstanding since the hormone therapy. It’s like it was when I was a young man. It’s great.”

The staff at Infinity Medical Institute received special praise from Debra. She was impressed by their friendly service, conscientious attention to her health and sensitivity to her personal needs.

“They were very welcoming,” Debra describes. “I had a ton of questions, and they answered every one quite thoroughly. I have a bum liver, and I was concerned about how the hormones would affect it. Dr. Moffitt was fantastic. She explained everything, encouraged me and said the treatment would give me my strength and energy back.

“Dr. Moffitt and her staff must have spent an hour and a half with me that first day. They touched base on all my personal and medical issues. I felt welcomed and comfortable at Infinity Medical Institute. I felt it was the right choice.”

Debra and Ken are extremely pleased with the results of their bio-natural hormone therapy. They soon learned they aren’t the only ones who noticed a difference in them since they began the treatment. They’re thrilled with the comments they hear from others.

“I go to a high-intensity aerobics class, and the other people in the class often say, What are you doing? Something is different about you. You look better. You exude health,” Debra relates. “I must have referred thirty people to Infinity Medical Institute. A number of people in my class started going because they said they wanted to feel like I feel.”

“I second that point,” Ken states. “We’ve been going to the same gym and working out with the same people for ten years. It feels good when somebody says, You look great. What happened? What have you done to change your body?

“Our children noticed the difference immediately because we don’t see them with that much frequency. They live in Alabama. The first time we saw all of them after starting the therapy, they made comments like, You have more energy than we do.

Dr. Moffitt says it makes it all worthwhile to see patients like Debra and Ken make such vast improvements.

“We see a transformation of our patients from the first time they come through the door and throughout their treatment,” she says. “Patients come in saying they’re not feeling vibrant, energetic, and have no interest in sex. After they receive our specialized treatment, they come back in and they’re smiling and feeling great again. They get that confidence back.”

Since starting bio-natural L3 pellet hormone therapy, Ken has regained the energy to get back to doing the activities he enjoys, including golfing and riding his motorcycle. He’s committed to staying on the therapy as long as his hormones require management.

“I’ve told Debra I would go without a lot of other things before I would go without the bio-natural hormone replacement therapy from Infinity Medical Institute,” Ken shares. “It has made a total difference in both of our lives. I feel like I did more than twenty years ago. I’ve got energy now. Our sex life is great, and I just feel good!”
