BREVARD COUNTY • MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA – Fit, healthy and forever young: what could be better?
Denise and Lou Manley, co-owners of the Fitness Club of Merritt Island, are aiming for that magic trifecta with their new anti-aging practice soon to open next to their gym.
Fitness Club will take care of keeping you in shape, while the new 4Ever Young Anti-Aging Clinic and Medical Spa will focus on helping you look and feel your best.
“At the gym, we met people on their fitness journeys and wanted to help them take them to the next level,” said Denise, who has more than three decades of experience in the medical field and holds both a bachelor’s degree in radiological sciences and an MBA.
“4Ever Young goes hand in hand with a healthy lifestyle. There is nothing like it in the area. »
The couple chose the 4Ever Young franchise because of both the company’s service philosophy and the one-stop convenience it offers patients.
In 2014, Deniz Duygulu and Carlton Washington founded the first 4Ever Young location in Boca Raton to fill a gap they had perceived through their personal exploration of health and fitness options.
They realized that conventional medicine is reactive, not proactive, and is structured to address problems, not to support patients’ goal of becoming the healthiest, most beautiful versions of themselves, no matter what. or their age. To fill this void, they created a preventative clinic committed to supporting vitality throughout life.
FEEL YOUR BEST
4Ever Young is actually two practices in one. Feel Your Best is dedicated to wellness services that include bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) and IV vitamin therapy for men and women, while Look Your Best focuses on advanced cosmetic services to combat the aging and bring out the best features of the individual. .
“In the past, people had to travel all over town to get these different services, but now they will be available under one roof,” Lou Manley said.
Hormones are the body’s messengers that deliver signals that affect the functioning of cells and organs. As we age, our hormone levels decline, which impacts our physical, mental, and sexual functioning because there are then fewer hormones to deliver the signals the body needs to function at optimal levels.
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy combats and even reverses decline.
“We target the hormones that you miss as we age,” Denise said.
Treatment for men and women begins with a free, thorough consultation with a wellness specialist, and is followed by a detailed, thorough blood test, comprehensive health profile, and comprehensive medical examination. with a healthcare professional to identify the patient’s medical condition and determine if the individual is eligible for BHRT.
In men, low testosterone can be caused by several conditions, but the main culprits are andropause, the male version of menopause, and obesity.
Physician-supervised bioidentical testosterone therapy can reverse the symptoms and health risks of low testosterone. 4Ever Young offers testosterone injections – testosterone is no different than the body’s – which is immediately absorbed by the body and bypasses the liver, which can be damaged by oral therapies. The center trains patients to properly inject these hormones when and where it is most convenient for them.
Patients who prefer a “take it and forget it” approach may opt for lozenges as an alternative to injections. Smaller than a grain of rice, these tiny pellets are inserted into the upper hip area by 4Ever Young’s medical staff, consisting of a medical director, nurse practitioners and medical assistants.
The lozenges release a constant dose of testosterone at the same rate as the body’s own testosterone is released.
4Ever Young also offers testosterone gels and creams that deliver a dose of hormones through the skin.
With all modalities, patients’ hormone levels are closely monitored throughout treatment.
Women can also greatly benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement, as it is common for women as young as their 30s to experience a drop in hormones that can affect mood, libido, and weight.
While taking care of the skin, staying in shape, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle helps women stay vibrant, lifestyle choices alone can’t prevent some changes. Menopause causes a massive decrease in estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, and the results of these low hormone levels appear long before and last long after this normal life stage begins.
4Ever Young offers estrogen and progesterone in cream or pill form, custom-compounded for patients by a pharmacy specializing in BHRT. Women also need the male hormone testosterone in very small amounts to function well. The tiny 4Ever Young Pearl lozenge precisely matches testosterone levels in the female body. The pellet is placed in the hip through a minimal incision to release a steady dose of hormones for several months.
Under the supervision and guidance of 4Ever Young medical staff, BHRT is a safe and proven option for improving health, as personalized dosing and close clinical monitoring ensures the patient receives the treatment needed to restore that feeling and momentum. of youth.
4Ever Young also offers IV vitamin therapy and infusions for a quick pick-me-up and boost to energy levels and the immune system, as well as personalized nutrition plans.
