This is considered Somatopause: the age-related decreased in production and release of growth hormone (GH), growth hormone binding protein (GHBP), and insulin-like growth factor- 1 (IGF-1). Somatopause is caused by the steady failure of pituitary function, which is responsible for secreting these hormones which are essential for the relief of these symptoms.
Classic features of Somatopause:
Because of the above, it is not surprising that the following can result:
When the body fails to produce growth hormone and patients have the above symptoms, it is reasonable and encouraged to obtain growth hormone from other sources. It has recently been found by sound research that patients with Type II diabetes may especially benefit. GH has been found to actually decrease insulin resistance, increase glucose disposal and increase lean mass, so it makes both intuitive and medical sense.
Sermorelin- biologically similar to our own naturally occurring growth hormone release hormone (GHRH)
Sermorelin essentially cause our pituitary to secrete our bodies own growth hormone. Therefore, it is our own growth hormone that will be correcting the symptoms.
Remember, the body’s reduced production and release of GH begins in our mid 30’s.
Treatment includes self-injections subcutaneously (a pain free injection under the skin) every day and this can be shown by our caring staff.
17% of patients notice itching at the injection site which is transient (lasts minutes)
Less than 1% of individuals have headache, flushing, dizziness, hyperactivity, sleepiness and urticaria (which is itching)

MIC (Methionine, Inositol, Choline)
These are lipotropic natural substances that assist the body in fat metabolism as well as carbohydrate metabolism. They minimize fat deposition especially in the mid-section and help give energy and boost your endurance. Furthermore, they can decrease cholesterol, minimize hair loss, decrease mental fog, and also can cause a sense of well-being. If you are on a weight loss path, this is a great adjunct to aid in your weight loss goals. Adding B-12 with MIC will give added stamina for exercise as well.

Methionine – decreases cholesterol, help clear liver
Inositol – decreases hair loss, decreases cholesterol, minimizes fat distribution in the mid-section
Choline – Improves mental clarity and functioning, helps keep immune system healthy; detoxifies liver, in turn, preventing fat from being trapped
Vitamin B12 is purported by medical providers to help accelerate metabolic processes while creating a greater feeling of overall energy. It is essential in the formation of blood cells, the functioning of a normal central nervous system helps to slow aging, and regulate sleep. Many are unaware they are low and can’t adequately absorb it through diet alone.
Since the MIC shot directly aids in the breakdown of fatty tissue, and is also closely related to B vitamins, when used together B12 and MIC are synergistic and amplify each other’s effects. Often they are injected together as a part of the same treatment injection cycle.
In 2011, the Isagenix system was first validated by the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), a leading research institution in the field of health sciences. The purpose was to test the Isagenix system against a traditional heart-healthy diet. In the 10-week study, subjects on the Isagenix system had superior results compared to the heart-healthy group. Those who followed the Isagenix system throughout the 10-week period saw 56% more weight loss, 47% more fat loss, and twice as much visceral fat loss. What, then, is so powerful about this nutritional system?
The foundational component of the Isagenix system is nutritional cleansing. Simply, it combines shake days and cleanse days to maximize your wellness goals. The perfect combination of high-quality protein and caloric restriction on shake days with intermittent fasting and fat burning on cleanse days results in lean muscle growth, a decrease in overall inflammation, a release in inches and pounds and sustained energy throughout the day.
Some of our favorite products to eat on shake days are the IsaLean Shakes, Complete Essentials Vitamins, Greens, IsaLean Bars, Ionix, and Hydrate. The IsaLean shake is foundational for shake days It is a complete meal replacement that contains perfect ratios of protein, healthy fats, and energy fueling carbs and is made with an undenatured high-quality protein that is gluten free, soy free and (can be) dairy free. The IsaLean shake is made from a whey protein from grass-fed New Zealand cows and is rich in probiotics, live and active enzymes and long branched-chain amino acids for lean muscle growth and synthesis. It’s a 240 calorie meal, takes 30 seconds to blend, is chock full of 23 essential vitamins and minerals and contains less sugar than a medium-sized apple.
Another critical component of the Isagenix system is cleanse days. Cleanse Days are designed to help target visceral fat loss through supported intermittent fasting. Some of the most popular products to use on cleanse days are Cleanse for Life, IsaDelight Chocolate, Isagenix Snacks and Whey Thins. The must-have product for cleanse days is the Cleanse for Life formula that nourishes the body’s own detoxification organs (like the liver and kidneys) while gently removing harmful toxins, oxidative stress and free radicals from the body. Cleanse days cleanse the body at the cellular level – it’s not a colon cleanse, a laxative cleanse or a poopy cleanse. Cleanse days are scientifically proven to help release toxicity and burn fat while also nourishing the body so you can energy the benefits of greater muscle tone, a flatter tummy, better energy and gain mental clarity (goodbye brain fog!).
