Travel Back in Time

The journey to a better you.

When she was in her 40s, Ramona Foster underwent a complete hysterectomy. Without ovaries producing estrogen to prevent bone loss, she went on hormone replacement therapy. The hormones fueled a growing malignancy, and she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Just a few years later, Ramona’s husband passed away.

Ramona gets back to
working out.

“The hormone patches I was using, which contained estrogen, made the breast cancer grow faster,” she verifies. “I went through radiation and other treatments for the cancer. With all that happening, I began to feel very sluggish and down, and I had a massive weight gain.
“I knew it was time for a change, a new beginning. My husband and I always wanted to live in Florida, so I moved down here. I relocated from Oregon in 2015. I lost the weight before I moved, and because my husband had recently died, I was feeling even more down and had little energy. I felt depleted.”
Shortly after arriving in the Sunshine State, Ramona met a fitness instructor, who encouraged her to take better care of her overall health. Ramona even began working at a group of personal training and body boot camp studios. There, she was introduced to Kathleen Montemurro from Infinity Medical Institute.
“Kathleen and her husband, both from Infinity Medical Institute, presented a seminar on bio-natural hormone replacement therapy [BHRT] at our facility. I took action, scheduled an appointment and got a consultation,” says Ramona.
“I also worked with a client at the studio who had nothing but success stories to tell about Infinity. She’s one of our success stories as well, so she inspired me to really want to go. I thought, If BHRT works for her, why not give it a try?
At Infinity Medical Institute, Ramona sat down with Kathleen and Moriah R. Moffitt, MD, the physician on staff. They determined Ramona was not a candidate for estrogen replacement therapy. They didn’t want to take any chances using a hormone that might fuel another cancer. They could, however, give Ramona testosterone.
“Dr. Moffitt took my blood for analysis,” relates Ramona. “Then, the nurse came in and explained and demonstrated step-by-step what was going to be done to me. They place a needle into your buttocks and insert a small pellet containing the hormones.
“The procedure was completely painless. The needle was so tiny, I couldn’t tell anything had been done. Twenty-four hours later, I was back on my feet. I didn’t have to sit around for days recuperating from the process.”
Infinity Medical Institute uses specialized bio-natural L3 pellet hormone replacement therapy. The bio-natural hormones in the pellets are released into the system gradually. For Ramona, the pellets lasted about three months. After that, new pellets were inserted.
“The first time I got the pellets, I didn’t notice much of a difference,” admits Ramona. “About six months later, toward my second treatment, I started really noticing some changes in my physical and mental state.
“At that point, the treatment really woke me up and rejuvenated me. I started exercising more, and I had more focus on my career.”

Loss of Oomph

Andrew “Drew” Taylor understands what it takes to be fit. He’s been a health and fitness professional for 26 years. When Drew’s own fitness took an unexplained dip, he first tried to fix the problem himself.
“I gradually worked to improve on all the areas of my life I could think of,” he recalls. “I worked on eating healthier, exercising more, stretching better and strengthening my faith in God by participating more in church activities.”
From the physical perspective, Drew’s hard work produced minimal benefits. He continued to lose strength and motivation, and it created problems in all aspects of his life, including his marriage. He lost interest in intimacy with his wife.
“I didn’t have that oomph, that edge,” he describes. “I lost the extra drive and desire, and was feeling lethargic. I was struggling in my workouts, and it was taking me longer to recover. I didn’t have any energy or momentum, and I wasn’t getting anywhere. I wasn’t having breakthroughs in my workouts. I was just going through the motions, trying not to break down.
“For someone who has studied health and fitness and has really worked at it, I didn’t expect to lose mine in my forties. It was affecting my self-esteem and my relationship, although my wife was supportive.”
After Drew initially worked to improve the various areas of his life, he realized there was one important area he forgot about – his hormones. He had researched the topic extensively and knew the effects of unbalanced hormones. He decided to have his tested, and was told his free testosterone level, which affects strength and desire, was low.
“I did more research and read that bio-identical pellet therapy is the best way to go to get a sustained level of hormones that actually respond like your body’s natural hormones,” he states. “I looked for places that offer this therapy and found Infinity Medical Institute.”
When Drew arrived at Infinity Medical Institute, he spoke to several staff members, who educated him on their bio-natural L3 pellet hormone therapy. This therapy, they told him, is a safe and natural treatment for hormone-related symptoms.
At his consultation appointment, Dr. Moffitt analyzed his blood work and prescribed a specific hormone combination to help with the symptoms he was experiencing.

“Dr. Moffitt listened to what I had to say about my goals for the hormone therapy,” recounts Drew. “Then, she gave me a very reasonable idea of what to expect.
“She said she couldn’t guarantee the therapy would take away my self-esteem challenges, but my desire for my workouts, my relationship with my wife, the intimacy – those things would definitely improve.”
Drew responded to the bio-natural L3 pellet hormone therapy quickly. He began noticing a significant difference in the first three months of treatment.
“During that time, I had a few weeks where there were aha moments when I was like, Wow!” he shares. “I felt this cloud leaving. My mood and outlook were brighter. I started to feel a little internal drive again, and I had a desire to achieve.
“Between month three and month six, the hormones started to really take hold. It became more like a daily wow. I thought, This is great!

Natural and Effective

People often reach middle age and start experiencing symptoms such as lack of energy, difficulty sleeping and loss of sex drive and strength, describes Michael Montemurro, president of Infinity Medical Institute.

With his hormones
optimized, Drew’s workouts are productive again.

“When these symptoms start occurring, people need to visit us and have their hormones checked,” he emphasizes. “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 bio-natural L3 pellet hormone therapy is the most natural and effective solution for hormone-related issues. Through Infinity Medical Institute’s pellet hormone replacement therapy, patients can achieve consistent absorption of the proper, predictable levels of hormones their bodies require for optimum health through the simple insertion of a pellet approximately every three to five months.
These bio-natural hormone pellets are made 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, whereas synthetic hormones 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,” informs Dr. Moffitt. “They also play a role in many health conditions such as diabetes, an over- or underactive thyroid, osteoporosis, obesity, anxiety and depression.”
“The body can never restore lost hormones unless it is done endogenously, like we do here with the bio-natural L3 pellet therapy,” adds Michael.
Michael points out that patients appreciate the all-natural products used at Infinity Medical Institute.
“Our bio-natural L3 pellet hormone therapy really helps give us an edge as we provide patients with a product that is all-natural, and we stand behind it,” he notes. “It’s the most effective hormone treatment on the market. It is felt to be extremely safe because it is replacing natural, normal hormones with biologically identical hormones that the body is used to seeing, rather than synthetic versions of the hormones.”

To Each His Own

Dr. Moffitt, Michael and the staff at Infinity Medical Institute truly care about each patient and take the time to get to know the person they are treating.
“Every patient is unique, and we understand that,” observes
Dr. Moffitt. “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,” comments Michael. “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 continues. “Everyone has unique needs. We’re very thorough with the labs at every visit in order to see what has changed and what, if anything, needs to be altered to be sure the patient is feeling the best they possibly can.

“It’s really awesome. I recommend it to anybody. It’s great to feel like your old self again!” – Ramona

“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,” asserts Michael. “That’s our goal, and that’s why we get such significant results for our patients.”

Time Machine

Infinity Medical Institute’s bio-natural L3 pellet therapy did more than restore Ramona’s and Drew’s hormones to healthy levels. For Ramona and Drew, it sent them back in time.
“By the time a woman reaches forty-five, her metabolism starts slowing down,” remarks Ramona, now 51. “I think a lot of that has to do with her testosterone level. In my case, I couldn’t get estrogen, but I could get testosterone, and it made me feel like I was twenty years old again.
“I had the best time of my life when I was in my twenties, and I wanted to feel that way again. Wouldn’t anyone pay to go back twenty years and feel like they did when they were twenty-one?”
“The hormone replacement therapy has rejuvenated how I feel,” agrees Drew. “I’m forty-seven, and I feel like I’m in my twenties. The treatment has been like a time machine for me.”
Since Drew began his bio-natural L3 pellet hormone therapy last year, he’s experienced dramatic results, physically and mentally. His fitness is back on track, and so is his relationship with his wife.
“Now, my workouts are great,” he reports. “My desire to work out is there, and when I look in the mirror, my body is responding again. I have real energetic workouts, and I’m excited about doing them. Afterward, my recovery is very quick. I’m not slow or dragging the next day.

Drew is back to his old self now.

“With my hormones balanced, I have a lot more confidence, and my outlook is definitely better. People have commented to me about how cheery my mood is. It’s been amazing. My wife has noticed me being more loving and affectionate as well.”
Life for Ramona has also improved substantially since taking the bio-natural hormones. She not only feels younger, she also feels more energetic and has a more positive attitude about her situation.
“With the hormones, I’m happy, I’m smiling, I’m even dating,” she marvels. “What they gave me at Infinity Medical Institute worked miracles. I have a totally different outlook on my day-to-day work.
“Not long ago, I did a six-week challenge and I crushed it. I’ve done six-week challenges in the past, and usually by the second week, I’m too stressed out from work to find time to exercise. With the hormone therapy, I have a totally different mindset. I feel like I’m ready to run a marathon. You just can’t stop me.”

“I’m forty-seven, and I feel like I’m in my twenties. The treatment has been like a time machine for me.” -Drew

Drew is extremely excited about his bio-natural hormone therapy and how it’s serving as an extra piece of his fitness picture. He also knows many clients at the fitness studio who would benefit from this type of therapy, so he works with Kathleen and Michael to spread the word.
“With my workouts, I’ve put on about fifteen pounds of muscle,” he reveals. “My wife noticed. Other people notice. People I see all the time are saying, Wow! What are you doing? They’re not just commenting about me physically; they’re also talking about my affect. They say my face is glowing a little more, and I look younger.
I believe people should at least know the role of hormones in their fitness and health.”
Ramona concurs that others need to know about Infinity Medical Institute and their bio-natural L3 pellet hormone therapy.
“It’s really awesome,” she says. “I recommend it to anybody. It’s great to feel like your old self again!”
