Men's Health and Testosterone Therapy
Dr. Jonathan V. Wright pioneered the use of Bio-Identical hormones such as Testosterone and DHEA for men when it became evident that men could benefit from this therapy. With careful testing of steroid metabolism, our doctors give special attention that supplemental testosterone is really needed (can’t be raised by other means), that testosterone does not metabolize into estrogen (which puts men at risk for various problems), and other markers are measured to ensure safety and efficacy of treatment. Treatment anomalies, such as the hyper-excretion of testosterone due to lack of certain other nutrients, are evaluated and resolved to ensure treatment provides optimal results.
Thermography is essentially a photograph of the heat produced in the body. The body is constantly emitting heat as infrared radiation from its source. A thermographic camera takes a picture of these rays. Areas of the body that are more metabolically active and have more blood flow will produce more infrared rays and will be visible on the thermogram. Once pictures are taken they are then analyzed by a Board Certified Thermologist.
