Yes, it is all about testosterone and how your general health impacts it!
All men will deal with declining testosterone at some point in their lives, and in today’s world, even men in their twenties are dealing with low T. Because of toxins in the environment and western diets, both women and men can be affected by the imbalance effects of estrogen and Xenoestrogens.
Andropause for men can be very sneaky and catch you off guard. Unlike menopause, the decrease in testosterone and the development of symptoms is more gradual than what occurs with menopause in women. One of the symptoms accompanying andropause is erectile dysfunction. 40% of men over 40 will experience erectile dysfunction at least some of the time. Severity of the condition in all men can be mild, moderate or severe
Men suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED) may have difficulty maintaining arousal, premature ejaculation, and decreased libido that causes frustration in the bedroom. The first level of therapy involves optimizing general health and elimination (if possible) of offending medicines. Alcohol, used to excess, can have an adverse effect on a man’s ability to have an erection, as can some (illicit) so-called ‘recreational’ drugs.
While there are quick fixes that may remedy the situation for a short time none of them are designed to correct the source of the problem and give you long term flexibility and relief. Intracavernosal Injections can be inconvenient and oral therapies with Viagra, Levitra, or Cialis tend to become less effective over time.
Erectile Dysfunction, a lack of libido and premature ejaculation are often caused by damage to the blood vessels that serve the genitals Our protocol involves the use of PRP together with Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) and nutrient therapy. You get natural healing from your own body
PRP Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a natural and long-lasting solution to invigorate men’s sexual health and wellness. PRP therapy uses your body's own blood derivatives to repair the damaged tissues that cause ED. PRP contains blood-derived growth factors that attract wound-healing cells to the area where they are injected. This improves blood flow to the genitals and promotes healing of the small blood vessels that make it possible to achieve and maintain an erection. The result is less time to arousal, a fuller, more dominant erection, and increased sensation.
Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT)
First, let us discuss the ED treatment, GAINSwave that you’ve probably heard about and the results that people have experienced. We want to clear the air and help people to understand exactly what GAINSwave stands for. GAINSwave is simply a protocol that uses Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) acoustic sound waves. It is not a device. It is simply a branded protocol.
GAINSwave does not sell a wave therapy device. You might be hearing about it more because GAINSwave sells their protocol and turnkey marketing program to medical offices in exchange for the clinic to be able to advertise that they offer the trademarked name “GAINSwave”. Lastly, The “protocol” they sell is not a “secret”. It recommends the same ESWT best practices we use at Wellife Center.
Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) can be used as a standalone treatment when just a little enhancement is desired or to enhance the effects of PRP treatment where significant improvement is required. Results are enhanced with repeated treatments.
Somatopause is the age-related decline in production and secretion of growth hormone (GH, somatotropin), GH binding protein (GHBP), and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1, somatomedin) resulting from progressive failure of pituitary function. GH is essential for normal adult life, and without it life expectancy is shortened, energy and vitality are reduced, and the quality of life is impaired.
Clinically, somatopause presents as:
- Altered body composition (increased fat mass, decreased lean body mass, decreased skeletal muscle strength)
- Decrease in bone mineral density
- Abnormal lipid metabolism (increased low density lipoprotein (LDL) and decreased high density lipoprotein (HDL)
- Insulin resistance and abnormal glucose metabolism
- Increased inflammatory markers including C-reactive protein (CRP) and interleukin-6 (IL-6)
- Increased risk of angina, heart attack, atherosclerosis, stroke and Alzheimer’s Disease
Wellife provides Sermorelin and Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide (GHRP) therapy for the treatment of of somatopause in the form of injections or nasal spray.

The Shock-Wave treatment also works to correct the penile curvature associated with Peyronie’s disease. It does this by breaking apart the vascular plaque that causes the curvature. We add PRP in a special treatment called the “DUKE” shot to heal the affected area. And finally, we use nutrient therapy and a topical gel to help break up the fibrous plaque.
