“When I was in my early sixties, I noticed that my libido was disappearing; my belly fat was increasing, I was stressed, and my energy levels low. My doctor told me, after performing testosterone and other tests, that my results were all within the normal range for my age and that it was just part of getting older. I tried several over the counter products and a prescription for Androgel that a referred urologist prescribed. None of the products really made a difference, including Androgel, which was a major hassle to apply daily and didn’t produce any noticeable results. It was then that I found and contacted BodyLogicMD on the Internet. I made an appointment for a consultation appointment to see Dr. Roger Garcia in July of 2011, at which time he explained the procedures, costs, and gave me a blood order to have blood drawn.
I meet with Doctor Garcia in about two weeks after the blood draw, where he discussed all of my results and what they meant to me and why I was having the symptoms mentioned earlier. After discussing the options, I chose to have the testosterone pellets inserted in my hip, as I believed it was the best cost effective method for me to boost my T levels. I noticed results within a few weeks; my sex drive was back, I felt better, less depressed and felt like exercising again. The pellets made a really big difference in my life and have for the past five years.
Working with Doctor Garcia’s staff has been very pleasurable. Doctor Garcia is a very knowledgeable doctor when it comes to the mental and physical health of aging. He wrote the book on it (Aged to Perfection). I would highly recommend Doctor Roger Garcia and his staff for anyone who believes they are having low testosterone issues and have been frustrated with over the counter creams and gels, or other prescription solutions.” – C.L.
“Let me start by saying that Dr. Roger Garcia has given me my life back. I feel 20 years younger. How can I say that with any reasonable amount of certainty? I’m an engineer and we compulsively measure and compare everything. That’s what we do. So here’s my story. Twenty years ago, I experienced a huge decrease in the quality of my life. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia (after consulting three different doctors). The second doctor I consulted actually said to me “what do you want me to do?” To which I replied, “I just want to feel better. Is that too much to ask?” I was operating at about 50% of normal and eventually worked back up to 60% with the help of traditional western medicine. I then branched out into Alternative Health Care. I added kinesiology, nutritional reflex testing (whole food nutrition), and Reiki. Then I weaned myself off of the eight daily prescriptions that I was taking (three of which were antidepressants). My quality of life then increased to about 75% where it stayed for quite a while. When perimenopause hit ten years later, I felt like I ran into a brick wall at 50 miles per hour. My quality of life went down to about 30%. I couldn’t sleep for more than one hour at time all night long. I woke up every hour on the hour with a hot flash and I did not dream. I never woke up rested. Every night I’d enter my bedroom; look at the bed and say, “not this again”. Needless to say, I felt terrible all the time. I had no energy, no stamina, no motivation, and I was extremely irritable (so was my bladder and colon). Eventually my endocrine system started failing. To add insult to injury, I gained 40 pounds in three months. Lovely! Then I read a book by Suzanne Sommers. In the book I found a reference to BodyLogic, MD. I then discovered that we have a BodyLogic practice in Columbus and immediately contacted Dr. Roger Garcia for an appointment. He treated me like a unique, precious individual; not like some crazed menopausal female. I like the systematic and very thorough approach that Dr. Garcia uses, because no two people are the same. Through blood, urine, and saliva testing, he measured more things in more ways than I knew you could. He started out trying to fix things with nutritional supplements, then progressed to prescriptions only when that didn’t work the way he wanted it to. I really appreciate that, because I never ever want to take eight daily prescriptions again. Eventually he implanted a testosterone pellet in my hip. Within a week, I felt 100% again! My quality of live improvement is astounding. I can’t believe how good I feel. I’m now sleeping in 4 hour blocks of time and I’m dreaming again. I wake up refreshed and my osteoarthritis pain has nearly vanished. I have energy, stamina, and I’m interested in hobbies that I gave up because I was too tired to care. Even my irritable bladder and colon have settled down. Looking back over the years, its seems obvious to me that dramatically decreasing hormone levels were the culprit that caused the two large drops in quality of live that I experienced. Run, don’t walk, to Dr. Roger Garcia’s office if you’re experiencing any of the symptoms that I did. You don’t have to suffer. You can have your life back. I’m happy to say I’m back on my quest to visit all of the US National Park properties. Thank you Dr. Roger for giving me my life back!!” -N.P.
