AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR HORMONE BALANCE THERAPY?

While menopause is better known, men, as well as women, suffer the effects of reduced hormone production. Some of the common signs of hormonal imbalance include:

  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Weight gain
  • Muscle mass loss
  • Moodiness and irritability
  • Insomnia
  • Libido loss
  • Decreased sexual performance
  • Anxiety and depression

You may assume these symptoms are an inevitable part of aging, but with customized hormone therapy from the team at Premier Wellness, you can reduce or eliminate your symptoms and enjoy enhanced wellness for many years to come.*

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING HORMONE THERAPY?

If you’re suffering from signs of hormonal imbalance, your first step is to schedule an appointment at Premier Wellness. Your physician performs a physical exam including comprehensive blood tests to identify your hormonal imbalances.

Premier Wellness works with specialized compounding pharmacies that custom-make hormone pellets to replace the specific hormones your body needs. When your hormone pellets are ready, your doctor injects the pellets into the subdermal tissue of your upper buttock. The pellets slowly release the hormones, and over the coming weeks and months, your symptoms should subside.

You have frequent checkups with your physician so they can monitor your symptoms and make adjustments to your therapy to ensure you get the optimal results necessary to restore your health, energy levels, sexual health, and overall vitality.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HORMONE BALANCE THERAPY?

Hormone therapy is a highly customized anti-aging treatment designed to enhance your health and longevity. It relieves the disruptive symptoms of aging, increases your energy levels, and helps you feel like yourself, regardless of your age.

*Individual results may vary.

WHAT CONDITIONS BENEFIT FROM MEDICAL MARIJUANA?

The health care professionals at Premier Wellness offer medical marijuana as a treatment option for many chronic health conditions, as outlined by Florida state law. Some of the conditions include:

  • Cancer
  • Seizures
  • Glaucoma
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia

HOW DOES MEDICAL MARIJUANA RELIEVE MY SYMPTOMS?

The cannabinoids in the medicinal plant are responsible for the relief of your symptoms. These chemicals stimulate the receptors in your brain to provide positive effects, including:

  • Reduction in pain
  • Increase in appetite
  • Improvement in anxiety
  • Decrease in stress
  • Stronger mental clarity

The cannabinoids also alleviate symptoms caused by certain medical treatments, such as chemotherapy, to improve quality of life. THC also has psychoactive properties that reduce aggression, agitation, and delusions.  

The use of medical marijuana for the management of chronic health issues is a very new field of medicine, and the holistic health care practitioners at Premier Wellness are happy to offer this alternative treatment to improve your symptoms and reduce your reliance on some of your prescription medications.

WHY WOULD I NEED MEDICAL AESTHETICS TREATMENTS?

As you age, your body’s production of new collagen and elastin cells slows, leading to visible signs of aging such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Loose, crepey skin
  • Age spots and other discoloration
  • Visible facial veins

Unhealthy lifestyle habits such as a poor diet, smoking, and tanning can accelerate the aging process by damaging your skin and further reducing impairing your body’s regenerative abilities.

WHAT ARE THE AVAILABLE AESTHETIC TREATMENTS?

Premier Wellness offers a variety of aesthetic treatments to help you look and feel your best.

Medical peels (chemical peels)

Medical peels, often referred to as chemical peels, are a deeply exfoliating facial treatment. Chemical peels are available in a variety of strengths, and your provider carefully examines your skin before recommending a specific peel. They apply the solution to your skin, where it stimulates the top layers of your skin into peeling away to reveal the fresh, new skin underneath.

Botox and Xeomin

Botox and Xeomin are injectable treatments that reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead, between your eyebrows, and around your eyes. Botox and Xeomin temporarily paralyze the small muscles under your skin that control your facial expressions. As those muscles stop moving, the skin covering them also relaxes and releases its folds and creases.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are another type of injectable cosmetic treatment. Dermal fillers are made from solutions that mimic your skin’s collagen and hyaluronic acid, which keep it looking plump and youthful. Dermal fillers plump your lips and replace other volume loss in your skin.

Icon laser treatments

The team at Premier Wellness uses the Icon laser system for a variety of aesthetic procedures, including skin resurfacing, scar removal, and permanent hair reduction.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM MEDICAL AESTHETIC TREATMENTS?

The team at Premier Wellness provides comprehensive aesthetic consultations to identify your cosmetic concerns and the best treatments to enhance your appearance.

All aesthetic treatments are provided at the convenient and well-appointed offices in Wellington. While you rest on a comfortable treatment bed, your provider prepares your skin and performs your procedure.

After your aesthetic treatment, your provider gives you aftercare instructions. In most cases, you need to avoid the sun, as many treatments can make your skin more sensitive to UV rays.

WHAT DOES THE PRICE OF THE SPECIALTY LAB TEST INCLUDE?

  • A doctor's order for testing
  • All lab / testing fees
  • A blood draw fee
  • A copy of your results
  • A review of your results with our specially trained Wellness Specialist

DO I NEED A VISIT A DOCTOR TO GET A SPECIALTY LAB TEST?

No. As part of your test price, we provide an order from a licensed doctor.

CAN I BE DIAGNOSED, TREATED, OR PRESCRIBED MEDICATIONS BASED ON THE SPECIALTY LAB TEST?

We offer Specialty Lab Testing to our patients as a resource and information. Patients have the option to have their results discussed with them with our Wellness Specialist as a part of the price of the test. Therefore, you cannot be diagnosed, prescribed or treated.

However, if you would like specific medical advice, you have the option to see one of our physicians or healthcare providers for a consult to review your medical hx and Specialty Lab results and together come up with the best plan of action for you at that time.

CAN I USE MY INSURANCE FOR SPECIALTY LAB TESTING?

No. All Specialty Lab testing must be privately paid for at the time of purchase. We accept credit/debit cards and checks. We do not bill Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance companies. Also, we are unable to provide ICD-10 or CPT codes or our Tax ID number.

WHY NOT JUST GO TO MY OWN DOCTOR AND HAVE HIM/HER ORDER THE TESTS FOR ME?

We encourage everyone to use their own doctor and health insurance for blood tests if possible. But many customers say it is easier and more convenient for them to use us instead of taking time out of their busy schedules to make appointments and wait around in a doctor's waiting room. Our customers also mention their shock at how much they have to pay if their insurance won't cover the tests compared to what they would pay through us. Also we offer unique blood panels you won't find elsewhere, plus your own doctor may not be willing to write a prescription for blood tests for preventive purposes.

WHAT IF I AM INTERESTED IN CONVENTIONAL TESTING? WHAT LABS DO YOU WORK WITH?

Through our affiliation with Premier Family Health as a medical facility, we are able to work with Quest Lab and we can order and review these labs through your insurance. As a practice, we try to do as much as possible through insurance with working up our patients.

How does IV therapy enhance my health?

  • Increased energy

What should I expect during IV therapy?

IV therapy is a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. During your treatment, you settle into a comfortable armchair while your provider attaches your IV. Then, for 30-45 minutes you rest, read, or nap while you receive the IV nutrients.

After your treatment, you should feel energized and refreshed. You can get right back to your regular activities and won’t need any time to recover.

Am I a good candidate for IV therapy?

If you’re in good health overall but are experiencing fatigue or other health issues, the team at Premier Wellness may recommend IV therapy. You have a comprehensive exam before receiving any treatment to identify your health issues and the best cocktail of vitamins and nutrients to address your needs.

For example, if you’re having cancer treatment that’s impacting your appetite, you may find that IV nutrition therapy helps you get all the nutrients your body needs to stay strong. Alternatively, athletes and physically active patients may opt for IV therapy to boost their performance and reduce recovery times.
