I have some very exciting news for all people in their 40’s, 50’s and 60’s.

As many of you are aware, getting into shape does not simply come down to exercise and a healthy diet, there are other factors to consider. Our hormones play a huge part in our internal physiology, and if out of balance hormonally, it can make it more or less impossible to lose fat.

Unfortunately when we age our body struggles in producing its natural hormones. These hormones include oestrogen, testosterone, progesterone, DHEA, human growth hormones, thyroid and melatonin.

Our body is no longer able to repair and regulate itself as well due to the decrease in hormones production. The organs are also not able to function to full capacity as hormone levels decrease.

The ageing process then starts to speed up and the body will begin to suffer from problems associated with the aging process like diabetes, osteoporosis and heart disease. Not just them, as we age we can suffer from weight gain, menopause, changing body shape, andropause, low energy levels and tiredness too.

People have used hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for many years and to differing levels of success.

Some synthetic HRT for women was strongly linked with a high risk for cancer.

Traditional HRT

Why choose between increasing your risk of certain cancers and an improvement in your quality of life when using HRT therapies?

Sadly this has been the options for ladies over 40 which has lead to a distinct lack of both physical as well as emotional wellbeing for females.

Cancer rates are increasing everywhere and the link between synthetic HRT and cancer has been widely investigated.

Many forward thinking people are benefiting from a NEW type of hormone replacement therapy, called bio identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).

What is BHRT?

BHRT stands for 'Biologically Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy'.

Our body produces substances which are natural hormones or the hormones are exactly identical to ones which our body make.

Natural Versus Synthetic Hormones

Drug manufacturers created synthetic hormones, these try to copy natural hormone function, but they are different to natural hormones so they are patentable.

There are advantages to synthetic hormones but there are also some side effects, these include weight gain, fatigue, headaches, bloatedness and even an increased possibility of cancer.

You don't get these side effects with natural hormones. As they are identical to the structures and functionability of the hormones produced by our body then you get the positive effects without the bad effects I just mentioned.

BRHT prescribes only natural hormones as it is committed to good health and well being.

Hormones help our bodies to stimulate cells to rejuvenate and repair, and are vital for regulating our bodily functions.

What to expect with BHRT?

BHRT focuses on allowing you to feel younger and more energetic both inside the body as well as looking it outside, this is done by getting your hormones back to their younger days.

How Can It Help Me?

The benefits of BHRT include:
• Increased energy levels
• Better memory
• Improved concentration
• More muscle and less fat
• Hair growing back
• Increased bone strength
• Improvements in immune system
• Increased feeling of happiness
• Better skin
• Better sexual function

How Does This Work?

This is the usual process.

It involves the replacement of the deficient hormones which are found through a blood and urine analysis with natural bio identical hormones. The hormones are fully balanced and in a youthful range.

The balance of our hormones have a massive effect on anti aging but there is a lot more too it. This hormone therapy needs to be combined with exercise, a good diet and a healthy all round lifestyle.

The aim is to create an anti ageing programme which is specific to you, this takes into account things like your nutrition, management of stress levels, exercise and supplementation.

A full assessment of key hormone levels are carried out using Bio Identical Hormone Therapy.

After the baseline has been found, patients will then receive individualised bio-identical (plant derived) HRT with ongoing blood monitoring to evaluate effect.


Women are no longer limited in their choices between enduring menopausal symptoms, or risking the side effects of synthetic hormone therapy.

Women face a perplexing dilemma starting around age 40 to 45.

The amount of sex hormones naturally produced by their body dwindles, causing a wide range of menopausal miseries in many, including hot flashes, depression, vaginal dryness, anxiety.

The menopausal decline in hormone production is a direct cause of premature ageing.

What Are The Risks?

The research that has been done suggests the the risks are low. Especially compared to traditional synthetic HRT.

Natural bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a safe and effective treatment for the restoration of youth and wellness.

The advantage of BHRT when used with a healthy lifestyle:

Increased levels of concentration
Improve sexual performance and an increase in libido
Reduced fat levels
Hair growing back
Increase in energy levels
Improved mood
Increased muscle mass
Immune system is stronger
More resilient to stress
Tougher bones
Memory improvements
Healthier younger skin

How Much Does it Cost?

It can be quite expensive but when you are talking about something so important as your health and your future surely it's worth sacrificing a summer holiday for this.

If that hasn't made up your mind to find out more about BHRT then this case study of one of my clients will.

Case Study

Male, 52

Business Owner, Director

One of my personal training clients has increased his income significantly since getting fitter and starting on the testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).

He said it has all been down to the hormones.

He said “It’s been life changing, and I feel younger and sharper than ever.”

He has attributed his increase in business results all down to the new regimen or good food, exercise and most importantly the testosterone gel he rubs on his shoulders every morning.

He said “I was thinking about taking more of a back seat in my business, I was tired. I felt I was losing my passion (and patience) for it all.”

“After speaking with Richard and discussing my symptoms (irritable, memory loss and loss of libido and strength of erections and ejaculation) he suggested I complete a questionnaire online to assess my hormone levels.

“The questionnaire suggested my testosterone was very low. He then referred me for a consultation with the Doctor. I remember thinking at the time, surely my hormones can’t be causing all these problems.”

“Now I realise it was a wise move, they were. I am now fitter, healthier and am much more productive than I have been in years, it really has given me my energy back.”

“Now I feel like I did 20 years ago, full of energy and confidence. My libido is back to normal and I have the hunger back for my business.”

“I’m delivering great presentations, my memory is sharp, even my staff have commented.”

“Now, when I come to retire, not only will I be fitter and healthier, I will have a better income and will be able to sell my business for more. This has been an additional blessing, not what I had expected at all.”

“It’s been a great investment, for me and my business.”

Men in their 50’s are usually at their peak in experience, success, knowledge and business acumen but at the same time all this is happening their energy and drive is sometimes at its lowest.

Testosterone replacement therapy balances this equation out. It can take your testosterone back to what it was in your twenties.

It’s a great investment.

Giving experienced and successful men the opportunity to restore their testosterone levels gives them the drive and energy to make their last 10 or 20 years in life and in business their best, financially and emotionally.

Allowing you to have a more fun and enjoyable retirement with the ones you love.
