Our healthcare system is not meant to keep you healthy.

According to the CDC, 48% of adults are battling one or more chronic health conditions. A contributing factor to this alarming statistic is the fact that medical doctors spend on average less than 13 minutes with their patients and prescribe drugs over 80% of the time.

CHLAMYDIA

Chlamydia Explained:

Chlamydia is a common STD caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. According to the CDC, there are approximately 2.86 million chlamydia infections reported annually, making it the most frequently reported bacterial STD in the United States. Many individuals are not aware that they have chlamydia because it is considered a "silent" STD, meaning that its symptoms are usually mild or completely absent. Chlamydia can be contracted via oral, vaginal or anal sex.

Common Signs and Symptoms of Chlamydia:

How long do chlamydia symptoms take to appear?

If symptoms appear in chlamydia infections, they typically manifest 1-3 weeks after exposure.

How chlamydia infects women

The chlamydia bacterium first infects the cervix (the passageway which joins the vagina and the uterus). Symptoms of a chlamydia infection may include vaginal discharge, bleeding between periods, painful urination and stomach pain. From there, the infection may spread upward to the urethra (urine canal), the uterus (womb) and the Fallopian tubes (tubes that carry fertilized eggs from the ovaries to the uterus). If the infection is left untreated, it can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). In addition, chlamydia can lead to serious consequences such as infertility and ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy in which the embryo develops outside of the womb).

Chlamydia Symptoms in Women:
Most Common
  • Silent or no symptoms (in 75% of women with chlamydia)
Less Common
  • Abnormal vaginal discharge (may have an odor)
  • Pain during urination
  • Rectal pain, discharge or bleeding
  • Inflamed eye
  • Bleeding between menstrual cycles
  • Lower bellyache
  • Lower back pain
  • Nausea
  • Fever
  • Pain during sex
  • Sore throat
Chlamydia in Men:

Like women, many men with chlamydia do not experience any symptoms due to the "silent' nature of the infection. When symptoms do occur in men, they may include a thick, yellow-white, milky or watery discharge from the penis and/or a burning sensation during urination. Pain and swelling in the testes may also occur, although such symptoms are less common. An untreated chlamydia infection in men can result in nongonococcal urethritis (NGU), an infection of the urethra, as well as epididymitis, an infection of the epididymis (the tube that carries sperm away from the testes).

Chlamydia Symptoms in Men:
Most Common
  • Silent or no symptoms (in 50% of men with chlamydia)
Less Common
  • Abnormal penile discharge (thick, yellow-white, milky or watery)
  • Pain during urination
  • Rectal pain, discharge or bleeding
  • Inflamed eye
  • Itching and burning around the opening of the penis
  • Testicular pain and swelling
  • Sore throat

Additional Information:

Who is at risk for contracting chlamydia?

Chlamydia is contracted via vaginal, anal or oral sex. Sexually active teenage girls and young women are more susceptible to contracting infections, including chlamydia, because their cervixes (opening to the uterus) have not fully matured. Adult men and women who engage in unprotected sex are also prone to the bacteria. A chlamydia infection can also be passed from mother to infant during vaginal childbirth.

Is chlamydia curable?

Chlamydia can be treated and cured with antibiotics. Individuals infected with chlamydia should abstain from sex for 7 days in order to allow the antibiotics to work and to prevent spreading the bacteria to others. Likewise, your partner should as be treated to avoid you getting re­-infected. A re­-infection of chlamydia is common, particularly when a person's sexual partners have not been properly treated. It is recommended that you and your partner get re­-tested for chlamydia approximately 21 to 28 days after treatment. This helps ensure the health of both parties and helps mitigate any potential long­term health complications from the chlamydia bacterium.

Effects of untreated chlamydia

If left untreated, a chlamydia infection can have major health consequences. Untreated infections in women can lead to chronic pelvic pain and prenatal problems. Repeated chlamydia infections may result in serious reproductive issues, including complications during pregnancy and infertility. In addition, women exposed to chlamydia are at a higher risk for contracting HIV. For men, an untreated case of chlamydia can spread to other parts of the penis, prostate and testicles and cause pain and inflammation. If not properly treated, chlamydia can also result in male sterility.

Blood Tests to Diagnose Chlamydia:

A Blood test is required to confirm a chlamydia diagnosis and receive treatment.

  • Chlamydia Trachomatis RNA

This tests is included in the following panels:

Antibiotics

Chlamydia can be easily cured with antibiotics. You should should abstain from sexual activity for 7 days after single dose antibiotics or until completion of a 7-day course of antibiotics, to prevent spreading the infection to partners. It is important to take all of the medication prescribed to cure chlamydia. Medication for chlamydia should not be shared with anyone. Although medication will stop the infection, it will not repair any permanent damage done by the disease.

Repeat infection with chlamydia is common. Women whose sex partners have not been appropriately treated are at high risk for re-infection. It’s recommended that you be retested for Chlamydia 21 to 28 days after receiving treatment of an initial infection.

A Prescription will be for a single treatment and will be sent to a pharmacy of your choice.

Genital Herpes (HSV-2)

Genital Herpes (HSV-2) Explained:

Genital herpes is an STD contracted from either the HSV-1 or HSV-2 virus. Genital herpes cases are predominantly caused by the HSV-2 virus, but HSV-1 cases are growing steadily due to oral sex. When symptoms appear, genital herpes presents itself as sores or lesions on the genitals, anus or upper thighs. To date, there are no statistics regarding how many Americans have genital herpes, only statistics on how many have HSV-2. This is because the blood tests that detect HSV-1 and HSV-2 are not able to tell you where on the body the virus is residing (orally or genitally).

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 776,000 people in the U.S. are infected annually with HSV-2. It is estimated that one out of every six people aged 14 to 49 years have genital herpes. Genital herpes symptoms usually appear 2-12 days after exposure to the virus and emerge as vesicles (or blisters) in the genital area or rectum.

How Is Genital Herpes Transmitted:

Genital herpes can be contracted from infected bodily fluids, including semen, vaginal fluid, saliva or herpes lesions, sores or blister fluid. Genital herpes is transmitted through unprotected oral, vaginal or anal sex, or from skin-to-skin contact with an infected partner. Chances of transmitting genital herpes (whether HSV-1 or HSV-2) increase if there are open, active sores or lesions present. It is possible to contract genital herpes even if your partner does not show symptoms. Genital herpes can only be prevented by abstaining from sexual activities. Latex or polyurethane condoms can help lower the risk of transmission for those who are sexually active, but because condoms do not cover all of the area that may be infected, genital HSV-1 and HSV-2 can still be contracted while using a condom.

Genital Herpes Symptoms:

While some people realize that they have genital herpes, many do not. It is estimated that one in five persons in the United States has genital herpes; however, as many as 90 percent are unaware that they have the virus. This is because many people have very mild symptoms that go unrecognized or are mistaken for another condition or no symptoms at all. Symptoms of genital herpes include vesicles, sores, lesions, blisters, painful ulcers, itching and/or burning in the genital area, anus or upper thighs. These sores often resemble: a red spot, a pimple, an ingrown hair, razor burn, or an insect bite.

Types Of Outbreaks:
The First Outbreak

If you were diagnosed with genital herpes in the last few days, you may be experiencing a number of uncomfortable or painful symptoms. Or, perhaps the symptoms are rather mild, barely noticeable, and resemble an insect bite or a rash. First episodes usually occur within the first two weeks after the virus is transmitted.

The “classic” symptoms that most people associate with genital herpes are sores, vesicles, or ulcers – all of which can also be called “lesions.” (The scientific literature on herpes uses the term “lesion” to describe any break or irregularity in the skin.) These classic lesions of genital herpes often resemble small pimples or blisters that eventually crust over and finally scab like a small cut. These lesions may take anywhere from two to four weeks to heal fully.

Recurrent Outbreaks

If you have recently made it through a first episode that consisted of full-blown symptoms, you know something about signs and symptoms already. The good news is that the first episode is almost always the worst that HSV throws your way. Signs and symptoms of recurrent episodes (when they occur) tend to be milder and heal much more quickly, typically within two to twelve days.

If the first episode produced fairly mild symptoms, then subsequent recurrences will not usually increase in severity. But, as noted earlier, when genital herpes recurs after a first episode, it doesn’t always cause recognizable signs and symptoms. The number of outbreaks someone has varies from person to person. The average number of outbreaks for a person with genital HSV-2 is four to five per year.

Additional Information

Genital Herpes Blood Tests

Herpes type 2 antibodies have a development period of 3 weeks to 6 months after initial infection. This is the time it takes for enough antibodies to develop that can be detected through the ELISA test. This period varies from person to person.

Is there a cure for genital herpes?

There is no cure for herpes. However, there are medicines that can prevent or shorten outbreaks. One of these anti-herpes medicines can be taken daily, and makes it less likely that you will pass the infection on to your sex partner(s).

Genital Herpes And HIV

Herpes infection can cause sores or breaks in the skin or lining of the mouth, vagina, and rectum. This provides a way for HIV to enter the body. Even without visible sores, having genital herpes increases the number of CD4 cells (the cells that HIV targets for entry into the body) found in the lining of the genitals. When a person has both HIV and genital herpes, the chances are higher that HIV will be spread to an HIV-uninfected sex partner during sexual contact with their partner’s mouth, vagina, or rectum.

Failure To Treat Genital Herpes

Some herpes viruses can cause meningitis or encephalitis. HSV encephalitis is mainly caused by HSV-1, whereas meningitis is more often caused by HSV-2. Herpes viruses have been linked to Recurrent Lymphocytic Meningitis (Mollaret’s meningitis), which is characterized by sudden attacks of meningitis symptoms that last for 2-7 days and are separated by symptom-free (latent) intervals lasting for weeks, months or years.

Genital Herpes And Pregnancy

Herpes infection can be passed from you to your unborn child before birth but is more commonly passed to your infant during delivery. This can lead to a potentially deadly infection in your baby (called neonatal herpes). It is important that you avoid getting herpes during pregnancy. If you are pregnant and have genital herpes, you may be offered anti-herpes medicine towards the end of your pregnancy.

Antiviral Medication

Treatment with antiviral drugs can help people with genital herpes outbreaks stay symptom-free longer. These drugs can also reduce the severity and duration of symptoms when they do flare up. There are three major drugs commonly used to treat genital herpes symptoms: acyclovir(Zovirax), famciclovir (Famvir), and valacyclovir (Valtrex). These are all taken in pill form.

When Treatments for Genital Herpes Are Given
Initial Treatment

If you have symptoms such as sores when you're first diagnosed with genital herpes, you will likely be given a brief course (seven to 10 days) of antiviral therapy to relieve them or prevent them from getting worse. You may be kept you on the drugs longer if the sores don't heal in that time. After the first treatment, and INDUR MD™ will work with you to come up with the best way to take antiviral therapies. There are two options:

Intermittent Treatment

An INDUR MDTM doctor may prescribe an antiviral drug for you to keep on hand in case you have another flare-up; this is called intermittent therapy. You can take the pills for two to five days as soon as you notice sores or when you feel an outbreak coming on. Sores will heal and disappear on their own, but taking the drugs can make the symptoms less severe and make them go away faster.

Suppressive Treatment

If you have outbreaks often, you may want to consider taking an antiviral drug every day. Doctors call this suppressive therapy. For someone who has more than six outbreaks a year, suppressive therapy can reduce the number of outbreaks by 70% to 80%. Many people who take the antiviral drugs daily have no outbreaks at all. Taking daily suppressive therapy may also reduce the risk of transmitting the virus to a sex partner.

The medication prescribed will depend on what course of treatment you and your INDUR MDTM decide one. The prescription will be sent to a pharmacy of your choice. These antiviral drugs are typically inexpensive with and without insurance.

GONORRHEA

Gonorrhea Explained:

Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Gonorrhea can be transmitted through oral, vaginal or anal sex. Gonorrhea infects the mucous membranes of the reproductive system, including the cervix, Fallopian tubes, and the uterus in women, and the urethra in women and men. It also infects the mucous membranes at the site of contact, including those found in the mouth, throat, eyes and anus. The CDC estimates that there are 820,000 U.S. cases of gonorrhea annually.

Common Signs and Symptoms of Gonorrhea:

How long do gonorrhea symptoms take to appear?

Although some people do not experience any gonorrhea symptoms, they may appear 10 days after being exposed. Typically gonorrhea symptoms can be mild or confused with a long-lasting flu.

Gonorrhea Symptoms in Women:

In women, gonorrhea symptoms are usually undetectable, extremely mild or often confused for other conditions. If left untreated, gonorrhea can spread into the uterus or Fallopian tubes, causing pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). PID might lead to infertility and an increased risk of ectopic (or tubal) pregnancy. Consider gonorrhea testing as part of your routine STD testing, especially if you are pregnant or at risk of contracting an STD.

Most Common
  • Silent or no symptoms
Less Common
  • Unusual, increased bloody yellowish or watery green vaginal discharge
  • Painful urination
  • Rectal pain, discharge, or bleeding
  • Inflamed eye
  • Sore throat
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Lower back pain
  • Low stomach aches
  • Bleeding between periods
Gonorrhea Symptoms in Men:

About 50 percent of men with gonorrhea do not experience any symptoms at all. If symptoms do present themselves, it is often in the form of painful urination or a yellow or green tinted white discharge from the penis. Less common symptoms include itching or burning around the urethra. Other symptoms are often mild and unnoticeable. An untreated gonorrhea infection can lead to serious complications like intense testicular or scrotal pain (epididymitis).

Most Common
  • Silent or no symptoms (50% of the time men do not show signs)
  • Yellow-white, or green-white discharge from the penis
  • Painful, frequent urination
  • Rectal pain, discharge, or bleeding
  • Inflamed eye
Less Common
  • Testicular or scrotal pain
  • Burning and itching around the opening of the penis
  • Sore throat

Additional Information:

Gonorrhea and health complications

Some health complications, like pelvic inflammatory disease for women, are not symptomatic of gonorrhea, but are a serious health complication. You should seek medical attention if you feel sick, have a fever or pelvic pain, or experience pain during sex.

Untreated gonorrhea can lead to Disseminated Gonococcal Infection (DGI)

There are many reasons to treat gonorrhea infection including the risk of DGI. Also known as gonococcal arthritis, DGI is caused by the spread of gonorrhea to the body, including the blood, skin, heart, or joints. This rare condition occurs in only 1 out of 100 people infected with gonorrhea, but DGI can be deadly. DGI can develop as soon as 2-14 days after you are infected with gonorrhea. Symptoms usually include chills, fever, joint pain or swelling, painful wrist and heel tendons, skin rash, and symptoms of meningitis (such as headaches, stiff and painful neck, vomiting, confusion and seizures). Our doctors recommend seeking medical attention if you experience any of these symptoms in order to avoid any serious or deadly complications.

Effects of untreated gonorrhea

Not getting treated for gonorrhea can result in serious health complications. Untreated gonorrhea makes you susceptible to HIV and other STDs. In men, untreated gonorrhea can result in a painful infection of the testicles, inflammation of the prostate, infertility, and urethral scarring. In women, untreated gonorrhea might result in pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which can lead to dangerous ectopic (tubal) pregnancy and infertility.

Blood Tests to Diagnose Gonorrhea:

A Blood test is required to confirm a gonorrhea diagnosis and receive treatment.

Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction Explained:

Erectile Dysfunction, also known as impotence, is the inability for a man to get or maintain an erection needed for satisfactory sexual performance. The occasional difficulty in getting or keeping an erection is normal. It’s only a problem when you’re regularly having difficulty — to the extent that you’re purposefully avoiding contact with your partner for fear that you’ll have trouble satisfying them in the bedroom. ED can occur at any age but becomes more common as you get older. In fact, ED can affect men of all ages. In fact, a recent study showed 1 in 4 patients going to the doctor for the first time for ED was under age 40. ED can be frustrating especially when the ability to achieve an orgasm and sexual desire are present.

Erectile dysfunction takes many forms. Some guys with ED are unable to achieve an erection under any circumstances, while others can occasionally become erect. You can also suffer from ED if you have no trouble getting an erection, but can’t consistently sustain an erection sufficient for satisfying sexual intercourse. Having ED doesn’t mean that you’re infertile. The majority of guys with erectile dysfunction are still physically capable of having an orgasm and fathering a child. It’s just that these things are difficult to do when you can’t consistently achieve and maintain an erection.

Erectile dysfunction treatment works by increasing blood flow to the penis needed to get and sustain an ejection when sexually aroused or stimulated.

What Causes Erectile Dysfunction:

Studies show over 80% of ED cases are caused by a treatable health disorder. Health conditions such as high blood pressure (hypertension), atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and diabetes and hormone imbalances such as low testosterone and low or high estradiol are common causes of ED. Erectile dysfunction is often a leading indicator of cardiovascular problems, in fact, ED precedes coronary artery disease in almost 70 percent of cases. Even a perfectly healthy man can develop ED after a brain or spinal cord injury. ED can be a side effect of certain medications, too.

Blood Tests to Investigate Potential Underlying Causes:

While there are prescription drugs to treat erectile dysfunction, there are oftentimes underlying health issues such as hormonal imbalances that once corrected can eliminate the need for prescription drugs. Blood tests are not required for this service but are highly recommended

These tests are included in the following panels:

**Foundation and Performance don’t include Progesterone and none of our core panels include Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Both Progesterone and Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and be purchased individually along with an INDUR blood panel.

PDE5 Inhibitors

Common PDE5 Inhibitor ED drugs like Viagra and Cialis all work in a similar way. They all relax the blood vessels which supply blood to the penis, meaning that more blood can get there when aroused. These medicines are not aphrodisiacs, so you will still need to be sexually stimulated in order to get an erection. While its important to find the root cause of erectile dysfunction these drugs can help achieve an erection strong enough for sexual intercourse.

Viagra (Sildenafil) is available as an oral tablet ranging from 25 mg to 100 mg. A starting dose of 50 Mg taken about one hour prior to sexual intercourse has been recommended. Viagra has been reported as a safe and efficacious treatment for ED, however, it is ineffective in approximately 27 to 35% of the population and has been associated with a variety of adverse effects including headache, flushing, dyspepsia, and adverse interaction with nitrates and inhibitors of cytochrome P450 enzymes.

Cialis (Tadalafil) is available as an oral tablet ranging from 5 to 20 mg. The recommended tadalafil starting dose for most men is 10 mg, taken as needed before sexual activity (but not more than once daily). The dose may be increased to 20 mg or decreased to 5 mg, per its efficacy and the man's personal tolerance of the drug. Tadalafil’s 36-hour effectiveness earned it the nickname, "The Weekend Pill"; like sildenafil, tadalafil is recommended as an 'as needed' medication.

Oftentimes Insurance companies won’t cover the costs of drugs like Viagra or Cialis. The out-of-pocket costs for these brand name drugs range from $35 to $86 per capsule. INDUR has a partnership with a specialty mail-order pharmacy, who can provide a similar FDA approved version of these drugs at a fraction the cost. The medication is in a sublingual troche that ensures superior absorption and fast results. The troche can be easily divided into smaller doses for more accurate or economical dosing.

Treatment Risks:

It’s important to understand the ED treatment we prescribe and the potential risks. The 2 ED medicines we prescribe Viagra (Sildenafil) and Cialis (Tadalafil) - are generally safe but shouldn’t be used as recreational drugs. They’re meant to treat a medical condition and can cause serious side effects including but not limited to an erection lasting more than four hours, sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes, and sudden decrease or loss of hearing.

Do not take Cialis if you are also using a nitrate drug for chest pain or heart problems, including nitroglycerin, isosorbide dinitrate, isosorbide mononitrate, and some recreational drugs such as "poppers". Taking PDE5 Inhibitors with a nitrate medicine can cause a sudden and serious decrease in blood pressure. Read the package insert that comes with the medicine for a full list of side effects and warnings.

Prescription will be for enough pills for 2 months of normal sexual activity. A follow-up consultation will be required to receive a refill prescription. Prescriptions for our erectile dysfunction treatment program are filled by Empower Pharmacy

Drug Dose Price Per Troche
Sildenafil(Viagra) Troche 50mg $4.30

Birth Control

Birth Control Explained:

Birth control works to prevent pregnancy through several mechanisms, mainly by stopping ovulation. If no egg is released, there is nothing to be fertilized by sperm, and the woman cannot get pregnant. Most birth control pills contain synthetic forms of two female hormones: estrogen and progestin. These synthetic hormones stabilize a woman's natural hormone levels, and prevent estrogen from peaking mid-cycle. Without the estrogen bump, the pituitary gland does not release other hormones that normally cause the ovaries to release mature eggs.

Synthetic Estrogen Works To:
  • Stop the pituitary gland from producing follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) in order to prevent ovulation.
  • Support the uterine lining (endometrium) to prevent breakthrough bleeding mid-cycle.
Synthetic Progestin Works To:
  • Stop the pituitary gland from producing LH in order to prevent egg release.
  • Make the uterine lining inhospitable to a fertilized egg.
  • Partially limit the sperm's ability to fertilize the egg.
  • Thicken the cervical mucus to hinder sperm movement (although this effect may not be key to preventing pregnancy)

There are two types of birth control pills available. The most popular is a combination of both estrogen and progestin while a progestin only pill is available for women who are sensitive to estrogen or who have medical conditions or lifestyle behaviors that restrict their use of estrogen.

Effectiveness of Birth Control:

When used perfectly, the pill is 99% effective. But when it comes to real life, the pill is about 91% effective because it can be hard to be perfect. So in reality, 9 out of 100 pill users get pregnant each year. The better you are about taking your pill every day and starting your pill packs on time, the better it will work. But there’s a very small chance that you could still get pregnant, even if you always take your pills correctly. It is important to take birth control pills at the same time each day.

How long do birth control pills take to work?

It depends on when you start taking them. You can take your first birth control pill any day of the month, but you may need a backup birth control method (like condoms) for the first 7 days.

Combination Pills

If you start combination pills within 5 days after your period starts, you’ll be protected from pregnancy right away. If you start combination pills any other time, you’ll be protected from pregnancy after 7 days of taking the pill. Use another method of birth control — like a condom or female condom — if you have vaginal sex during the first week you’re on the pill.

Progestin-Only Pills (Mini Pills)

You can start progestin-only pills at any time. You’ll be protected from pregnancy after 48 hours (2 days). So use another method of birth control (like condoms) if you have vaginal sex during the first 48 hours.

Combination pills contain synthetic forms of the hormones estrogen and progestin. Most pills in each cycle are active, which means they contain hormones. The remaining pills are inactive, which means they don’t contain hormones. There are several types of combination pills:

Monophasic Pills

These are used in one-month cycles and each active pill gives you the same dose of hormone. During the last week of the cycle, you take inactive pills and have your period.

Multiphasic Pills

These are used in one-month cycles and provide different levels of hormones during the cycle. During the last week of the cycle, you take inactive pills and have your period.

Extended-Cycle Pills

These are typically used in 13-week cycles. You take active pills for 12 weeks, and during the last week of the cycle, you take inactive pills and have your period. As a result, you have your period only three to four times per year.

Brand Names

Alesse, Apri, Aranelle, Aviane, Enpresse, Estrostep, Lessina, Levlen, Levlite, Levora, Loestrin, Mircette, Natazia, Nordette, Lo/Orval, Ortho-Novum, Ortho Tri-Cyclen, Yasmin and Yaz. Lybrel, Seasonique and Seasonale (generic names: Jolessa or Qualsense) are combo pills that can minimize periods to just a few times a year or less.

Benefits

Combination pills are linked to less crampy, lighter, shorter periods. These pills may also clear up acne. The combo pill reduces the risk of ovarian and endometrial cancer.

Progestin Only Pills

Progestin-only pills contain progestin without estrogen. This type of pill is also called the “minipill”. Progestin-only pills may be a good choice for women who can’t take estrogen for health or other reasons. With these progestin-only pills, all pills in the cycle are active. There are no inactive pills, so you may or may not have a period while taking progestin-only pills.

Mini-pills contain only progestin. They prevent pregnancy by thickening your cervical mucus and thinning the lining of the uterus. Some mini-pills suppress ovulation, but that’s not the main way they work. The mini-pill was developed for women who are sensitive to estrogen. It has the same failure rate as the combo pill—about one in 10.

Brand Names

Camila, Errin, Jolivette, and Micronor.

Benefits

The mini-pill is safe for people who are at risk of heart disease or strokes, or are heavy smokers. It’s also safe when you’re breastfeeding.

Important Note

Unlike the combo pill formulas, every mini-pill in your pack is active. Take one every single day, at about the same time each day.

Men's Hair Loss

Hair Loss Explained:

Being able to detect the beginning stages of hair loss by understanding its causes can be important for successful prevention or intervention. Unfortunately hair loss can affect people at any point in their life, sometimes beginning in their 20s. In fact, two out of three guys will experience some form of male pattern baldness by the time they’re 35. Unfair, yes. Uncommon, no. The most common cause of hair loss is a hereditary condition called male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness.

Causes of Hair Loss:

Male Pattern Baldness aka Androgenic Alopecia

Male and Female Pattern Baldness, also known as “Androgenic Alopecia”, is the most common cause of hair loss and will affect up to 70% of men and 40% of women at some point in their lifetime. Over 95% of hair-loss in men is due to this condition. Men typically present with hairline recession at the temples and hair-loss on the upper surface of the head, also known as vertex balding. Women typically present diffuse, or scattered, thinning of the hair over the top of their scalps. People who suffer from this type of hair-loss have an underlying sensitivity to “hair follicle miniaturization” due to androgenic hormones. Miniaturization refers to the shrinking of the hair follicle which results in the thinning or loss of hair. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is the primary hormone associated with the miniaturization of hair follicles. DHT is a by-product of the hormone Testosterone, found in both men and women although typically much higher in men. Testosterone converts naturally to DHT through a hormonal pathway called 5 Alpha Reductase. Certain hairs on your head may genetically susceptible to thin if exposed to excess levels of DHT. DHT can attach to the hair follicle and prematurely make it shed while shrinking the follicle which prevents normal hair re-growth. Instead of normal, healthy hair re-growing in its place, a thinner, finer hair replaces it. According to the Foundation for Hair Restoration, the onset of miniaturization from androgenic alopecia is due to three factors.

  • Genetic predisposition- Miniaturization of hair is genetic, the genes come from either parent or both.
  • Presence of Dihydrotestosterone – The presence of DHT is the second factor
  • Age – The older you are, the more likely you are to experience miniaturization of your hair

Male Pattern Baldness is a trait, not a disease, so it is most commonly linked to genetics. But don’t blame mom, you can inherit the baldness trait from either side of your family; a recent study found that there are actually 287 genetic signals that contribute to male pattern baldness.

Poor Nutrition

Usually complete baldness is not seen in people with nutritional deficiencies, thinning of the hair is more common. Studies show that limited food intake and deficiencies in certain nutrients can cause thinning. These include deficiencies of biotin, amino-acids (protein), zinc, selenium, essential fatty acids and iron. Consuming a diet high in animal fat, such in fast food, can also have a negative effect on hair loss.

Thyroid Disorders

Severe and prolonged hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism can cause loss of hair. The loss is diffuse and involves the entire scalp rather than discrete areas. It is unusual for mild (e.g. subclinical) hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, or short-lived thyroid problems to cause hair loss. Thyroid disorders are typically more common in women.

Stress

Stress has been shown to restrict the blood supply to capillaries which prevents oxygen and nutrients from reaching the hair follicle which can prevent hair growth. This effect is similar to having poor circulation.

Medications

Some medications can cause hair loss, especially medications which affect hormone levels. These medications include contraceptive pills, some forms of hormone replacement therapy (such as topical testosterone gels), anabolic steroids, and acne medication. Other medications which can have an effect on hair loss include those for blood pressure problems, diabetes, heart disease, and cholesterol.

Understanding Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) In Men:

Dihydrotestosterone, or DHT, is an androgen hormone derived from testosterone. DHT is converted from testosterone by the 5AR enzyme. It’s the most powerful androgen and is considered to be 3 to 5 times more powerful than testosterone. Years ago, and even to some extent still today, DHT was inappropriately considered a bad hormone that merely caused things such as male pattern baldness and prostate cancer. According to studies, prostate cancer may not even be caused by DHT. While it may be one cause of baldness in men genetically prone to it, the hormone itself is responsible for a number of health benefits in men. It plays a very significant role in libido and sexual function and in men and it limits the amount of testosterone that is covered to estradiol. DHT is primarily what makes men, men.

WARNING: Oral Finasteride (Propecia) is commonly prescribed to men with male pattern baldness with the intent to block the production of the hormone Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This drug often lowers DHT levels too much. The problem with taking Finasteride is that it may cause significant side effects. Reported side effects include loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, suicidal ideation, anxiety, panic attacks, peyronie’s disease, penile shrinkage, gynecomastia, muscle atrophy, cognitive impairment, severely dry skin, tinnitus, and depression. The side effects can last long after the drug is discontinued and can sometimes be permanent. A better approach is using a topical formulas to decrease DHT levels in hair follicles but not drastically lower blood DHT levels.

Topical Hair Loss Treatments:

Doctors who specialize in hair loss have partnered with INDUR’s compounding pharmacy to design topical formulas which effectively treat, prevent, and reverse hair thinning. There medications have shown to be effective for the treatment of alopecia when applied topically.

Minoxidil

Minoxidil, an over the counter topical treatment, has been used since the 1990’s to treat baldness in men and women. It reportedly promotes new hair growth by increasing cutaneous blood flow to shrinking hair follicles. This may cause follicles in the telogen phase to shed, which are then replaced by thicker hairs in a new anagen phase. It is generally recognized as safe and can be effective by itself if used during the early onset of alopecia.

Finasteride

Finasteride acts by reducing DHT levels, thereby inhibiting miniaturization of hair follicles in patients with AGA. Oral finasteride may be associated with side effects such as decreased libido, sexual dysfunction, and gynecomastia. Topical finasteride may absorb less systemically than oral finasteride, therefore reducing the side effects associated with oral finasteride.

Azelaic Acid

Azelaic Acid is a naturally occurring substance found in whole grains that contains a mild antibiotic designed to reduce harmful bacteria from the skin. It is also said to be a potential inhibitor of 5-alpha-reductase in human skin. A reduction of this enzyme reduces the amount DHT in the body and therefore can have a similar effect to finasteride.

Ketoconazole

Ketoconazole, an anti-fungal medication, can also be effective in stimulating new hair growth for sufferers of AGA. In addition to killing fungi, ketoconazole is also helpful in countering the effects of DHT

Aging & Photo-damaged Skin

Skin Aging Explained-

Skin ages just as the rest of the body does. But, while there are some elements of the skin aging process that cannot be prevented, there are ways to slow the appearance of the visible signs of ageing with care and attention.

Physical Changes Due to Aging:
  • Wrinkles
  • Sagging or slack skin
  • Loss of firmness (tension)
  • Thinner or thicker skin
  • Loss of fat (this accentuates wrinkles, since there is less ‘cushion’ to support the dermis)
  • Rough texture
  • Pigmentation
  • Uneven tone
  • Dilated Capillaries (redness)

When you age, there are two kinds of aging processes at work.

Intrinsic Aging:

Intrinsic aging is the natural process that takes place within the body regardless of outside influences. At around 20, collagen production starts to fall resulting in skin becoming thinner and more fragile as the years pass. Additionally, the skin’s exfoliation process decreases, causing dead skin cells to accumulate and stick together for longer periods of time. In the thirties and forties skin suffers from the effects of advanced glycation end product (AGE's) caused when collagen and elastin fibers gradually break, thicken, stiffen, clump together, and lose their elasticity making the skin appear duller and less plump. Finally, in the fifties, skin becomes dry because the sebaceous (oil) glands produce less oil. In women, menopause causes a decrease in estrogen levels, leaving the skin drier, thinner and less toned.

Extrinsic Aging:

The second cause of the visible signs of aging is known as extrinsic aging and occurs as a result of environmental factors such as sun exposure, pollution, alcohol and smoking. But unlike intrinsic aging, it can be controlled to an extent as it is a result of external factors. Extrinsic aging shows up as thickening of the cornfield layer, freckles and sun pigmentation. Extrinsic aging can also be responsible for excessive loss of collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycans (GAG's). These processes give the skin the appearance of roughness, uneven tone, brown patches, thin skin and deep wrinkles.

Major Causes of Skin Aging:

Estimates state that 80-99% of what we see on our skin as adults is the result of exposure to daylight, which is referred to as photoaging. This is why the most effective (and cheapest) anti-aging product you can use is sunscreen! Photoaging causes an increase in wrinkle formation, a loss of tension and elasticity, degeneration of the vascular supply and skin thickness, hyperpigmentation and other skin discoloration, dilated capillaries (telangiectasis) and a reduction in the water-binding properties of the skin.

While scientists attribute the majority of these structural changes to exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, it has only been in recent years that they have come to understand the actual biochemical triggers that instigate these changes. These are the chemical reactions that occur within the skin and include:

While scientists attribute the majority of these structural changes to exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, scientists have come to understand the actual biochemical triggers that manifest skin aging, such as wrinkles, altered pigmentation, and loss of skin tone. These triggers are known as:

  • Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), aka Free Radicals.
  • Inflammation and Matrix Metalloproteinases (or MMPs).
  • Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs).
Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) aka Free Radicals:

Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) are dangerous oxygen molecules generated by UV rays and pollutants. ROS attack and react with stable skin cell molecules, causing cross-linking of collagen and elastin (the cause of wrinkles) while lessening skin’s ability to repair itself. Ever watch a cut apple slice start to brown? That process is called oxidation – and it’s caused by free radical destruction. Oxidation is when free radicals damage a parts of the cells, such as proteins, DNA, cell membranes and more. When free radicals attach a cell either the cell will become damaged and dysfunctional, become cancerous or die.

Examples of Free Radicals:
  • UV radiation
  • Stress
  • Air pollution / Smog
  • Cigarette Smoke
  • Alcohol
  • Ozone
  • Heavy Metals
  • Fried Foods
  • Drugs
  • External Hormones
Inflammation and Matrix Metalloproteinases (or MMPs):

Chronic Inflammation is one of the main underlying causes of aging. It is low intensity inflammation that you cannot see happening. This kind of inflammation slowly ages your skin. Chronic inflammation can last for days to a lifetime. Inflammation can be caused by a variety of stimulants that are physical, chemical, or biological in nature. The stimulant triggers free radicals, which in turn starts an extremely destructive chain of events, called the inflammation cascade. In the first part of this cascade, the free radicals activate the release of arachidonic acid, which starts the chain. After a series of steps, white blood cells (leukocytes) are transported to the site of injury. At the end of this cascade, a group of enzymes called Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMP’s) are released.

Inflammatory Causing Stimulants:
  • Sunlight (UV)
  • Heat
  • Smoke
  • Burns
  • Pollution
  • Cosmetic Ingredients
  • Perfumes
  • Chemical Irritants
  • Toxins
  • Physical Trauma
  • Stress
  • Bacteria and Viruses
  • Diet (foods that elevate blood sugar)
  • Alcohol
  • Adverse Weather

Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMP’s) are enzymes that break down tissue. After an injury or ‘insult’ to skin, the body’s natural response is to destroy the injured tissue and create new tissue. MMP’s are needed for remodeling skin in wound healing. This make sense if there is a real wound, such as a cut from a knife. But it is not a good thing if ‘normal’ skin with low-level, chronic inflammation is broken down. And how exactly do MMP’s affect skin with chronic inflammation? MMP’s break down healthy collagen and elastin fibers as well as GAG’s and other connective tissue. These MMP enzymes literally chew them up, leading to disorganized and clumping fibers. And you can guess what happens next. Collagen, elastin, and GAG’s that have been degraded lead to a thin, flattened dermis. Skin ages.

Advanced Glycation End-Products (AGEs):

Glycation occurs when glucose (a type of sugar) attaches to a protein. A common analogy is the browning and hardening of a pie crust. This is called the Maillard reaction. Glycation causes a ‘crème brûlée’ effect on collagen, elastin, and other proteins. It denatures these proteins, impairing their function. These abnormal structures are called Advanced Glycation End Products (AGE’s). AGE’s bind strongly to collagen and elastin (more so to elastin), forming chemical bridges. When this happens, collagen and elastin become stiff and non-functional. This is an irreversible process. Skin becomes thinner and less elastic, less flexible, and less firm (more sagging). AGE’s also make skin yellow-brown in color over time due to collagen and elastin not getting broken down properly.

AGE’s also increase free radical production, trigger inflammation, decrease circulation, and impair the skin’s ability to regenerate. Avoid eating foods cooked at high heart, limit sun exposure and limit sugar intake or follow a low glycemic diet.

Because we understand these triggers, skin care professionals are better equipped to effectively treat, and control, the signs of skin aging.

IMPORTANT NOTE:Prescription strength anti-aging products are only recommended for patients with advanced aging or photo damage. It is recommended that people first start with retinol, a weaker form of vitamin a, and transition to prescription strength retinoid products such as Tretinoin. This gradual transition will limit unnecessary drying and irritation. Both INDUR Anti-Aging Complex and INDUR Retinol .5% contain the weaker form of vitamin a called retinol. Overtime people’s skin will get used retinol and will need the more powerful version of vitamin a found in Tretinoin (PLEASE KINK THE PRODUCTS IN THIS PARAGRAPH)

Tretinoin (Vitamin A) Cream:

Tretinoin dramatically reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and deep creases as well as brightens the skin. It works to stimulate cellular regeneration and increases collagen production by 80%, making skin behave and look younger. Tretinoin reverses and protects agains damage caused by free radicals and acts as a natural matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) inhibitor. Continued use of Tretinoin helps sustain the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and helps to normalize the physiology of the skin. Tretinoin is very effective in reversing the photo damage that has already occurred, and also in protecting against future damage.

Prescription will be for 3 months. A follow-up consultation will be required to receive a refill prescription.

Hydroquinone + Tretinoin:

Hydroquinone decreases the formation of melanin in the skin. Melanin is the pigment in skin that gives it a brown color. Hydroquinone is used to lighten areas of darkened skin such as freckles, age spots, melasma (sun damage), or chloasma (darkened skin caused by hormonal changes).

Tretinoin dramatically reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and deep creases as well as brightens the skin. It works to stimulate cellular regeneration and increases collagen production by 80%, making skin behave and look younger. Tretinoin reverses and protects agains damage caused by free radicals and acts as a natural matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) inhibitor. Continued use of Tretinoin helps sustain the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and helps to normalize the physiology of the skin. Tretinoin is very effective in reversing the photo damage that has already occurred, and also in protecting against future damage.

Prescription will be for 3 months. A follow-up consultation will be required to receive a refill prescription.
