Hormones can affect both men or women and treatments vary based on the types of tests.
Dr. Keshwani is highly experienced and trained when dealing with appropriate levels hormones in the body.
Testosterone is a hormone that is produced by the human body. It is the principal male sex hormone, stimulating sperm production and male sex drive and helping build muscle and bone mass.
Low testosterone (low-T) is the underproduction of testosterone. Testosterone levels naturally decline with age, decreasing each year after age 30. Other causes of low-T include injury; medications such as opioids and steroids; and chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, infections, obesity, or hormonal disorders.
Symptoms of low-T include:
- Low sex drive
- Lack of energy
- Loss of Facial and Body Hair
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Fatigue and Lack of Energy
- Poor Sleep
- Decreased Bone and Muscle Mass
- Increased Body Fat
If you are experiencing symptoms of low-T the next step is to have your testosterone levels tested. The test involves having your blood drawn and it can be done in-house at Elite Doc Health and Beauty. The test takes less than 10 minutes. If you are diagnosed with clinically low testosterone, Dr. Keshwani will discuss a course of therapy with you.
Trimix Injections for ED
Trimix is a formulation that is often prescribed by physicians for the purposes of helping patients with Erectile Dysfunction (ED). Trimix is a prescription compound made up of three drugs, which include Alprostadil, Phentolamine and Papaverine. The compound is injected into the base of the penis and works by relaxing the smooth muscle in the penis and opening the blood vessels, causing an erection. Trimix injections can be formulated in a variety of strengths to meet each patient’s individual needs. However, it must be prescribed by a physician and compounded by a pharmacy.
Benefits of Trimix
- Fast Acting
- Less expensive than oral medications such as Viagra®, Levitra®, etc.
- Not Affected By Alcohol Consumption

Low testosterone, also known as low-T, affects an estimated 13 million men aged 40 and older in the United States.
This decline in male hormones is a natural phenomenon; no man can avoid it. However, it can be treated. Elite Doc Health and Beauty offers hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for men. We offer either a compounded testosterone cream or testosterone injections. This therapy is designed to supplement what your body is not producing in sufficient quantities.
The testosterone cream is applied daily. Injections (done by the patient) should be given once every seven days in the gluteal or deltoid muscle. This will maintain therapeutic levels throughout the week.
Most patients report that they notice a difference in the way they feel within three weeks of beginning therapy.
During perimenopause, many women experience declines in estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. Symptoms of hormone imbalance in women include hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, vaginal dryness, decreased libido, low energy, mood swings, depression, anxiety, urinary incontinence, and more. Men, after age 30, experience a gradual decrease in testosterone levels. Low testosterone (low-T) in men has been linked to erectile dysfunction, weight gain, depression, lack of energy, and loss of libido among other problems. Both men and women can benefit from hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to supplement the hormones that the body is no longer producing in sufficient quantities.
BioTe Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy uses hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate the body’s normal hormonal levels. These hormone pellets, placed under the skin, release a consistent, small, physiologic dose of hormones for optimal therapy.
Patients using BioTE don’t experience “roller coaster” hormone levels and the resulting in mood and energy swings that are so common with pills and patches. BioTE pellets are the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 4 to 6 months.
Pellet insertion is a simple outpatient procedure done in the doctor’s office under local anesthesia. The doctor will make a small incision in the upper buttocks, then insert the pellets subcutaneously (under the fatty lining of skin). The incision is then closed with surgical glue or sterile tape strips. When inserted properly, patients should be unable to feel the implants under their skin. The BioTe pellets will consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones, keeping levels in a therapeutic range until the next pellet procedure in four to six months.
Elite Doc Health and Beauty offers pellet hormone therapy for both men and women. Give BioTe a try and start feeling your best again.
Women can experience hormonal imbalances at any age. However, most women begin to experience hormonal decline in their late 30’s or early 40s. Besides age, hormonal imbalances can also be caused by stress, a poor diet, environmental factors, lack of sleep, smoking , or excessive alcohol consumption. The hormones that most commonly begin to decline are estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.
If you are a man struggling with fatigue, weight gain, difficulty sleeping or decreased sex drive, you may be suffering from symptoms of low testosterone, also known as low-T.
Bio-identical hormone replacement can reduce the symptoms of perimenopause, menopause, and low-T and reverses the decline in functionality, health and wellbeing associated with these conditions. Elite Doc Health and Beauty uses only natural hormones. These hormones are identical to those produced by your own body, molecule by molecule. Dr. Keshwani will design a BHRT program tailored to your individual needs.

Nutraceuticals are foods or products derived from food sources with extra health benefits in addition to the basic nutritional value found in foods. Because nutraceuticals are not regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, a wide variety of products can fall under this umbrella term. Some examples of nutraceuticals include:
- Amino acids
- Isolated nutrients such as lycopene and beta-carotene
- Dietary supplements such as vitamin B
Nutraceutical therapy is simply the use of nutraceuticals and amino acids to help fight the effects that busy and stressful lifestyles place on the human body. A nutraceutical specialist designs an individualized treatment plan designed to prevent and treat specific health conditions.
Derived from the words “nutrition” and “pharmaceutical,” nutraceuticals are believed to aid in the treatment of a variety of illnesses, including addiction, cancer, thyroid problems and other chronic diseases. Nutraceutical therapy is typically used in conjunction with other forms of therapy to put the body in the best position to heal itself. If you’d like to learn more about nutraceutical therapy, please call Elite Doc Health and Beauty to schedule a consultation.
