Being a parent can be exhausting some days. Between club meetings, sports, and appointments it’s not hard to get run down. For some parents, though, that exhaustion can start to take a serious toll on their day to day lives. This can be a sign that it’s time to look into your personal wellness and make some changes. After our visit to Epoch Health I can’t recommend this office enough. Parents everywhere can benefit from a boost in sleep, metabolism, and overall wellness. 

Epoch Health has locations around Arkansas including Benton, North Little Rock, and Conway. We decided to go with the North Little Rock location for our free screening. There were patients coming and going the whole time we were there. However, we waited only a few minutes for our walk-in appointment. The waiting room environment was pleasant and welcoming. This helped to make the short wait an enjoyable one.

Our Trip to Epoch Health

My husband and I decided that he would be the one to try Epoch Health first. After a deployment, stress at work, and the stress of being a special needs parent he was not feeling 100%. He knew he wasn’t “sick”. However, he felt that he needed a boost to get back into the swing of things after returning home this summer. 

With the convenient walk-in hours at Epoch Health, we chose a time that worked with both of our schedules. That way I could attend the appointment with him. We were there to test for and treat low testosterone. However, there are many services at Epoch Health that are beneficial to women as well.  

The first appointment was a free screening. This consisted of a simple blood test where they evaluated his CBC, PSA, and testosterone levels. It was followed by a quick questionnaire. The results give the team at Epoch Health an idea of the issues an individual is having. It also helps to determine what services would best meet their needs. In all, we were there less than an hour to complete everything.

The staff at Epoch Health were very welcoming. They were all friendly, and ready to answer any questions that my husband and I had. They had a variety of information available that detailed the services offered. While I read through the information my husband went back for his bloodwork. My daughter immediately found the awesome coffee and snack bar available. While they had a large variety of items to choose from she settled on a hot chocolate and played on my phone. 
 
A few days later my husband received a phone call from the office to go over the results of his blood test. His testosterone came back on the low side. This meant he qualified for the choice of an oral testosterone or injections. An appointment was set for him to go over things more with one of the doctors a few days later.  
When we arrived at the appointment to discuss his results he answered a few more questions. They showed us an informative video on what to expect from testosterone injections. Following the video, the clinician came into the room to answer any questions we had. They chose the appropriate starting level for his injections. After a quick injection, we were on our way.
He will return to the location, or any convenient location once a week for injections. After a few weeks they will retest his testosterone levels and follow up on any side effects he may have. It couldn’t have been easier or quicker. However, they were excellent at thoroughly explaining things and making sure we understood the process well.

Treatments Available at Epoch Health

Epoch Health offers a variety of treatments for everything from low libido to autoimmune inflammation. You would go to your primary care physician for things like the common cold or a broken bone. Epoch Health is a great option when you are feeling out of sorts but can’t quite pin down why. They are also a great choice if traditional treatments aren’t giving you the results you are looking for. 

The free screening at the initial appointment will give you a good baseline for where you are. If anything, serious shows up they will refer you to an appropriate specialist. If you are showing a hormonal imbalance you will receive one of the many in-house treatments available. For example, if your prostate numbers are low they will refer you to a urologist. This is to ensure everything is ok before proceeding with testosterone replacement treatment.

Sermorelin

This compound is available to take orally or as an injection. It helps stimulates the pituitary gland to produce growth hormones. Originally it was approved for children to aid in growth management.

Arginine/Sildenafil

These two supplements work together to increase blood flow by dilating arteries. They also work together to stimulate the release of insulin and growth hormone. This makes Arginine/Sildenafil a great choice for those with conditions such as high blood pressure, dementia, and erectile dysfunction. This powerful combination can also help to boost the immune system. This is a great way to speed up recovery from colds, infections, and various wounds. 

Note: This compound can cause low blood pressure. It is important to let your physician know of all other medications and supplements you are taking. This includes high blood pressure medications, blood thinners, and diabetic medications. Combining these medications can cause dizziness. There is also a chance it can cause blood pressure to drop too low. 

Low Dose Naltrexone

Low Dose Naltrexone or LDN is an opioid antagonist. This means that when taken it blocks the action of opioid drugs such as hydrocodone. Naltrexone can be taken at high doses to treat narcotic addictions. However, when taken at low doses LDN has shown the ability to boost the immune system. This helps to reduce inflammation and lower autoimmune response. It does this by attaching to the opioid receptors. This blocks endorphins from attaching to them. In turn, the body releases more endorphins. This leads to increase activity from stem cells to boost the immune system. 

Some use LDN to counteract alcohol addictions and food cravings. However, it is most popularly used for patients with autoimmune issues. This includes disorders such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Crohn’s disease, and many more. It is believed that LDN helps to keep the immune system on task without overworking. This is especially beneficial for those of us with autoimmune disorders. It helps to stop our immune systems from going overboard and attacking our own bodies. 

Studies have shown LDN beneficial for many patients who need help with immune system regulation by helping to: 

  • recover more quickly from illness 
  • enhancing sleep schedules 
  • giving the body a boost to repair from autoimmune disease 
  • regulating cell growth 
  • reducing allergies 
  • reducing depression 
  • reducing alcohol, sugar, and food cravings 

Note: It is important to let your physician know of all medications you are taking, particularly if you are on thyroid medication. Heart palpitations and difficulty sleeping may result by combining the two. It is also important to avoid opioid medications when taking LDN.
