Our Women's Vitality Program
With age, Estrogen, Testosterone, Growth, and Thyroid hormones decline. This profoundly affects a woman's metabolism and mental and physical well-being. Our approach is to customize hormone therapy in a patient-centered manner that is both safe and effective. We do not believe that a one-size-fits-all approach can achieve your goal, not just to live long but also well and happy.
Given that the Western food industry focuses on quantity and price instead of quality and nutritional value, our diet has become energy-rich, calorie-rich, yet nutritionally poor. In fact, in our practice, we find that most women are either deficient or have suboptimal levels of essential vitamins such as vitamin B12 and Vitamin D; how is this acceptable in the wealthiest and most fertile land in the world? The supplement industry is not regulated the same way as the pharmaceutical industry; as such, most "vitamins" available commercially are usually ineffective, under-dosed, and poorly absorbed in the gut; optimizing these levels should be a central pillar of any comprehensive vitality program. Suboptimal vitamin D and B12 levels affect bone health, immunity, colon cancer risk, energy, stamina, and the ability to burn fat and build muscle.
We are blessed to live in a nation that enables us to optimize our hormones and vitamins, so why not take advantage of that?
Our program best suits proactive women interested in self-improvement and pushing their limits outside their comfort zone. We can optimize your hormonal milieu, but we have no control over your diet and exercise habits; still, we will educate you and coach you on these along the way, employing the most current knowledge on exercise and nutrition.
The more you cooperate with us, the sooner you achieve your goals and BEAT YOUR EXPECTATIONS!
We start with a simple lab test to assess whether you would be a candidate for our program; this is done before meeting with Dr. Abdullah.
To assess candidacy for our Women's Vitality program, you require the following screen:
Estrogen. Lab screen price: $75.
Please note: We use world-class laboratories with validated methods for accurate results; therefore, we may take up to 5 business days to get them. Thank you for being so patient.
The Women's Vitality Program:
Program Goal: Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone, thyroid, vitamin D, and B12 optimization. Sometimes, we also prescribe Human Growth Hormone (see below!)
Prerequisite lab test: Estrogen is required before meeting with Dr. Abdullah.
Women's Vitality Program Schedule & Pricing:
Every woman is different and unique in her health status, hormonal milieu, and the physical requirements of her life and occupation. Therefore, we don't have a set program, lab panel, or schedule. One woman might need to be evaluated every three months, but another will be evaluated every six months. One woman might only be on Testosterone. Another might be on Estrogen, Progesterone, and Testosterone. The fact that we are patient-centered is what makes us better and more effective than the non-doctor-managed HRT mills popping up on social media every day. Please be aware that a lot of these "HRT" mills on social media are not physician-managed even when they have the "MD" in their name; it's false advertising!

Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Therapy:
Growth Hormone Therapy benefits a subset of patients when prescribed and clinically and biochemically monitored by a qualified, experienced physician. The FDA has approved certain recombinant Human Growth Hormone brands for treating Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency, diagnosed by clinical and laboratory findings.
Important to note: Even with a diagnosis of Adult growth hormone deficiency that is verified both clinically and biochemically through a blood test, we do not prescribe HGH without achieving the full potential of HRT within the confines of maximal safety and tolerability of sex hormones (Estrogen, Progesterone, and Testosterone).
HGH therapy (when indicated) has an added cost to the price of the visit ($200) and the labs ($200)--in addition to the cost of the medication itself ($500 and up/mo).
