Longevity Clinic For Men
Longevity is more than just living longer. Modern medicine has created many medical treatments to address the symptoms that come with aging.
From high blood pressure drugs to anti-depressants, there are many medications that could be considered “anti-aging”.
Many clinics consider longevity as just keeping you alive. When was the last time you saw an older man walking with a huge smile on his face.
Perhaps your blood pressure is now “normal” and his mood is “not depressed”. Is that really as good as it gets?
Our longevity clinic offers medical treatments that give you that smile. Because we always consider the cause of your problem we have many treatment options that help you live longer AND actually enjoy it.
Imagine coming home from work and instead of going to lay on the couch you run up the stairs grab your partner and make wild sweet love. We want to help you do this.
So what is aging? We know that aging is the general decline of bodily functions. But what does this mean? We know that as we age many hormone decline and some increase.
As men age, cortisol and estrogen levels increase and testosterone and growth hormone levels decline. This is considered to be part of “normal” aging. Unfortunately, “normal” aging also includes low mood, decreased muscle mass, decreased mental function, decreased energy levels, erectile dysfunction (women have their own version), and the list goes on….
What if we could measure these hormones and then give you adequate dosages in safe ways that reproduce your hormone levels when you were younger? We consider this to be one of the most important innovations in healthy aging medicine.
What if a healthy diet, hormone therapies, a few supplements, and exercise could help you increase your longevity and actually ENJOY life so much more? We have seen thousands of men improve their lives using cutting-edge men’s health treatments and we are confident we can help you enhance you life.

Men’s health is changing. The “normal” decline that occurs with aging is now optional. As you age your body’s ability to function declines. For some men, this may mean less firm erections, less energy, less muscle mass, less mental acuity, and less libido. Some men may notice increased blood pressure and increased cholesterol levels.
Testosterone is one of your hormones that decreases as you age and is responsible for many of the symptoms of “normal” aging. Research now shows that this decline is more than expected and is becoming an epidemic.Men 20 years ago had higher testosterone levels than men today at all ages (low testosterone epidemic). This is likely due to pollution and chemicals such as BPA (bis phenol-A), which is found in plastics and acts like an estrogen in our bodies.
Imagine how you felt when you were 25 years old at the peak of your life and also the peak of your testosterone levels. For some men, this insidious decline begins after age 30 (this is when testosterone really starts declining significantly) and is considered acceptable.
If you have any symptoms, such as decreased energy levels and depression or low mood, your doctor is unlikely to even consider checking your testosterone.
If you’re lucky, your doctor will check your testosterone levels. The range of “normal” testosterone is about 300 – 1200. This is a very wide range and if your level comes back at 301 your doctor will likely say you are “normal” and maybe suggest an anti-depressant.
Your doctor is probably unaware that low mood (mild depression) is often caused by low testosterone! There is NO such thing as an anti-depressant deficiency but testosterone deficiency DOES exit and is one of the most under-treated conditions in the United States.
- Do you have a decrease in libido (sex drive)?
- Do you lack energy?
- Is your strength or endurance decreased?
- Have you lost height?
- Have you noticed decreased “enjoyment of life”?
- Are you sad or grumpy?
- Are your erections less strong?
- Have you noticed a recent deterioration in your ability to play sports?
- Do you fall asleep after dinner?
- Has there been a deterioration in your work performance?
If you answered “yes” to questions #1 or #7 or any 3 other questions, you may have low T.
The Male Fountain Of Youth – Testosterone Therapy
Men who want to maintain their vitality and potency have more options than ever before to live a quality life.
In California and Florida, anti-aging medicine is very popular for both women and men. In Seattle, most men and women are unaware of what modern medicine can do to reverse the decline that occurs as we age. If you get hit by a car go to the emergency room but if want to recover well from that accident you need adequate testosterone, growth hormone, etc.
You recovered well when you were younger so imagine what you’d feel like if you had the hormone levels of a 25 year old. We want you to walk down the street with a big smile on your face because things just keep getting better and better. All the knowledge you have gained in your life becomes even more useful when you have the energy and drive to get out there and use it. Testosterone therapy increases energy levels,
Forget The Pills You’ve Probably Seen On TV
The pills they advertise on television are ineffective at significantly increasing your testosterone levels. We offer a number of effective treatments including REAL testosterone identical to the testosterone your body makes. We also offer simple and effective approaches to stimulating your body to produce more testosterone as well decreasing your conversion of testosterone to estrogen.
Testosterone For Life – Improve Quantity AND Quality
Dr. Wheeler has personally reviewed over 3,000 testosterone lab tests and seen the dramatic benefit men feel and see when they have balanced hormone levels.
Hormone balancing for most men usually means increasing testosterone, growth hormone, and thyroid hormone levels while decreasing estrogen and cortisol (the stress hormone) levels using the most cutting-edge approaches that are found in elite men’s health clinics around the world.
It is estimated that about 5% of us men with low testosterone receive treatment. This is a disturbing figure considering the benefits I have seen with patients receiving testosterone therapy, which include:
- weight loss (especially central obesity)
- increased energy
- increased sex drive
- better erections (men only)
- improved performance at work
- feeling and looking younger
- less night time urination (men only)
- improved sleep
- better mood (happier)
- less pain (testosterone is a natural pain reliever)
Modern Medicine For Real Men
Men’s health is much more than having your doctor stick his finger up your butt to check your prostate size. Men’s health is figuring out why your prostate is enlarged and how to treat the cause of the problem without causing erectile dysfunction. Yes, most the treatments that men get for high cholesterol, elevated blood pressure, depression, and night time urination CAUSE erectile dysfunction! We have treatments for these conditions that IMPROVE erectile function!
Not every man with low mood, decreased muscle mass, memory and focus problems, poor sleep, and/or erectile dysfunction has low testosterone. But to think that these men have Prozac® deficiencies, laziness, Ritalin®, Ambien®, and/or Viagra® deficiencies is just plain wrong. Certainly, every medication and treatment has its usefulness but when we treat the cause of the problem you get REAL benefits that are much more easily sustainable.
Most of our patients see so much benefit from the testosterone therapy we provide they rarely want to discontinue treatment. In case you decide to take a break your testosterone levels will just return to “normal”, the way they were before you began treatment. Since testosterone levels decline with age it is very likely you will want to continue treatment.

- Heart Disease
- Diabetes Type 2
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Erectile Dysfunction
