2020 is finally gone and it is time to get rid of that 2020 “20” and lose weight. In 2020, the ball dropped in March. It was crazy. There we were, cocooned in oversized sweats. Searching for a new pet. Hunting for elusive toilet paper. Couldn’t spend time with loved ones. Egg and Cheese McMuffins with crispy hash browns and a side of Griddles became the Breakfast of Champions. Our minds wandered aimlessly, and had to ask for directions home. But it is 2021 and time to move on, make new year’s resolutions. But this year counts more than ever. We need to start fresh, lose weight, learn new things, look and feel younger, take better care of our health. And, Thrive Health Solutions is here to help your 2021 thrive.


Let’s take a look at what could make keeping our resolutions as seemingly difficult as Congress arriving at a Stimulus Package.

When it comes to losing weight:

  • Grubhub and DoorDash have become family
  • I ran past the Covid “15” months ago, and that was my only cardio

When it comes to learning new things:

  • Every day is cloudy with a good chance of constant brain fog
  • I wish I could social distance from depression

When it comes to looking and feeling younger:

  • Mirror, mirror on the…nope, not looking in any mirror soon
  • My “not tonight, hon” has turned to don’t bother asking

And finally, when it comes to taking better care of your health:

  • My sleep is so insufficient I’m not just counting sheep, I’m naming them
  • I could be woke if I wasn’t so exhausted


Forget resolutions. For every negative thought and behavior, make a new, positive… let’s call it “goal”.  Think, “I hope I will, I have the will, I know I will.” And keep the message on repeat.

When it comes to losing weight

  • Never step on the scale blindfold again
  • Fill your plate with motivation. Have seconds. Even thirds

When it comes to learning new things:

  • Drop guilt at the airport with a one-way ticket
  • Aim for a glass that’s more than half full (and not with tequila or gin)

When it comes to looking and feeling younger:

  • Set up your cells for success
  • Tell wear-and-tear where to go

And when it comes to taking better care of your health:

  • Put the brakes on stress
  • Make your immune system soar
  • Turn your inner athlete into a beast

And let the caring, understanding medical experts at Thrive Health Solutions help you turn things around.


But the experts at Thrive Health Solution can. Hormones are your body’s chemical messengers swimming with determination throughout your bloodstream, telling your cells and organs what to do. When they are out of balance, the messages they send are chaotic and can cause health issues from hair loss to bone loss, depression to diabetes, erectile dysfunction to heart disease. But with BHRT pellets and other therapies, we’ve got you covered.


That’s our number one goal at Thrive. And we’ve got a number of ways to help you get there beyond just hormone balancing. Our medical weight loss options, immune health, and anti-aging treatments are all cutting edge. Well-researched. Innovative. Safe. Effective. Affordable. You get results. You get confidence. You get a New You.


Literally, our online store makes it easy for you to take home a healthy taste of some of the ways Thrive can help you move forward, get fit, and feel like you’re ready to take on anything this strange new world can toss at you. We’ll help you thrive in 2021. And 2. And 3. Well, you get it…A good example? Instead of masking up when you go to the kitchen, our proprietary ThriveSlim™ and ThriveTrim™ capsules can help you resist the dreaded Covid-carbs, forgo the binge snacking while Netflix binging, and lose the weight you want without feeling deprived.

So if you want to lose weight, feel younger or whatever your health needs, Thrive is all about helping you be the best you can be. Call or text Thrive Health Solutions at (303) 790-8446 for an appointment now. Happy New Year. And Happy New You.


Oh, but people do mind. The global anti-aging therapy market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 5.3% from 2019 to 2026 to reach USD 35.4 billion by 2026. People desperately want to feel more vibrant and energetic. They want to live not just longer, but better. And while some might say that age is all in your mind, the real trick is keeping it from creeping into your entire body. That’s where Sermorelin and Ipamorelin therapy comes in. But we’ll start at the beginning.


There are more than 150 different hormones playfully swimming at whim through our bloodstream playing a key role in how our bodies interact with all cells in order to perform life-preserving functions. Unfortunately, as our bodies age, they are prone to experience a reduction in the secretion of crucial hormones. When this happens, it causes the body to age even more.


Human Growth Hormone (HGH), is a naturally-produced hormone generated from the pituitary gland, a pee-sized gland at the base of the brain, mass produced by the body during periods of rapid growth like adolescence. Growth hormones stimulate cell production in both males and females, helping to maintain the health of our organs and tissues throughout our lives. And it happens to be the primary hormone we target with anti-aging therapy.


However (isn’t there always a “however”?), as the body ages, the pituitary gland releases less HGH and the body begins to exhibit inevitable signs of aging such as wrinkles, muscle loss, weakness, weight gain, insomnia, lower bone density, fatigue, and sexual problems.


But (and isn’t there always a “but”?), declining levels of HGH and increasing signs of aging, aren’t just for the old as in what you would probably think of as old. Like 100, maybe. (Or like 50, if ‘re you’re a Millennial). Production of growth hormones in the body peaks around 30 years of age, then decreases by as much as 15% per decade after that. So you can eat right and exercise until you’re ready to drop (all good), but it’s not going to stop the drop of your HGH. But before you start to envision becoming decrepit on the near horizon, we’ve got some good news…introducing anti-aging therapy.


So, let’s get back to Sermorelin and Ipamorline and their role in anti-aging therapy. Sermorelin and Ipamorline are not HGH. They are classified as a Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone or GHRH. (Yes, it can get a bit confusing). Their function is to stimulate the pituitary gland in order to release more HGH naturally when it needs it. When the level of growth hormones begins to decline, Sermorelin and Ipamorline can boost it back up, helping to delay the aging process and every unwanted ugly thing that comes with it. They put you in charge of the way your body ages, truly putting time on your side. Now let’s get on to another HGH… (Yes, it gets a little more confusing).


Synthetic HGH not produced by the body. It’s cooked up in a lab. And usually come with cooked up claims, very few of them having anything to do with successful clinical trials or well, any type of trials. Which is why they are considered illegal by the FDA. And banned not just by the International Olympic Committee, but by any athletic sport. Instead of performance enhancing, it’s risk enhancing. Often referred to as the “Outlaw Drug, it has been shown to cause serious health implications such as infertility, diabetes, swelling in the arms and legs, joint pain, high cholesterol, increased risk of heart attack and stroke, and even cancer. Instead of looking younger, you’ll look like you need serious medical help. So HGH injections and supplements that you hunt for online and over the counter (or even overseas–Korea, India…) run counter to the concept that wisdom comes with age. This type of HGH isn’t natural no matter what any made up ads say.


Because of the synergistic ways in which Sermorelin and Ipamorlin work in the body, the health risks and negative effects you find with synthetic HGH are almost non-existent. Now here’s where it can get a little more technical and medical…Sermorelin or Ipamorline Anti-Aging Therapy is actually called Peptide Therapy. But we’re not going to go into peptides here. We’ll make it simple (“we like simple”) and get right to the good part; anti-aging benefits like you wouldn’t believe. Sermorelin or Ipamorline therapy (we’ll stick with that for clarity) are gradual anti-aging therapies that can take a few months before the effects start to become noticeable, but many patients experience positive health effects within just days or weeks of starting the therapy. Even if you have a small HGH deficiency, you will likely start noticing positive health effects soon after starting the treatment. Effects which just keep getting better and better. (“We love better”.) Below is just some of what you can expect:

  • Better quality of sleep
  • More energy
  • Improved stamina
  • Increased metabolism
  • Improved mood
  • Better libido
  • Better workouts-more strength, cardio endurance and faster recovery
  • Increased bone density
  • Reduced belly fat
  • Stronger hair and nails
  • Increased sex drive
  • Improved cardiovascular and immune function

Wow. Ditto.


Anti-aging therapy (ok, just to go technical again—Peptide therapy (Sermorelin/Ipamorelin) is a proven natural way to counter the effects of anti-aging. And in the Denver area, one of the most premier specialists in anti-aging therapy is Thrive Health Solutions. Their expertise in treating anything having to do with hormones is cutting edge. Their vast experience using Sermorelin to boost declining growth hormone levels has helped patients of all ages look and feel younger, longer. Patient health is the number one priority at Thrive. Before anything, they test your blood to determine if your HGH levels are low and anti-aging therapy is actually the right course of action. (They’ll never try to talk you into something you don’t need). And because everyone’s’ levels are different, each treatment plan is individually and uniquely formulated. No one-size-fits all. You’ve got questions? (And you probably have a bunch.) The understanding experts at Thrive will answer them all until you get it all. Don’t let aging race ahead of you. Call Thrive Health Solutions for an appointment. No time like the present.


You are conceived and so starts the growth hormone process. The growth hormone fuels childhood growth and helps maintain tissues and organs throughout life.


Also known as physiological or functional age, biological age takes into consideration a number of factors other than the day your mother happily albeit painfully popped you out. The basic idea behind biological aging is that aging occurs as you gradually accumulate damage to important cells and tissue in your body. Your biological age reflects a combination of your genetics, demographics, chronic conditions, exposure to environmental and other toxins, and well, just how you live. You can eat less, eat better, exercise more, sleep more, drink less, stress less and absolutely positively stop smoking. All of which will go a long way in helping keep your biological age from racing ahead.


So how do you put a number on your real age? It’s something even an Einstein couldn’t pin down. But as with literally everything in life now…”internet to the rescue!”  Longevity Score Calculators of all types claim they can button it down. “Measure Your Biological Age In 2 Minutes By Answering This Fun And Simple Quiz. Let’s Go!!” And boy, do you go. You simply have to answer page after page of questions, from how many glasses of water you drink and whether you eat breakfast, to how many push-ups you can do and how many friends you can rely on. Even as crazy as “do you grunt and/or sigh while standing up, sitting down, or bending over?” You finish the test. You hit the magic, “Here’s Your Number” button and voila!

Well done. You’ve knocked 16 years off your age.” Really?


Another important element that figures into how your body ages is whether or not your hormones are in balance. (And good chance they’re not). Because as you age, your body just naturally produces fewer hormones. Hormones directly related to biological aging. Like your growth hormone which (spoiler alert) begins to decline after age 30. Less growth hormone, more bad stuff like lower muscle mass and lower bone density. Yes, you guys, too. As many as 2 million American men already have osteoporosis. Wait, wait…it gets better…or worse, actually. Lower growth hormone can also lead to higher risk of heart disease and diabetes. And then there’s testosterone. Less testosterone doesn’t equate to just less sex. It can lead to everything from hair loss to depression. But don’t get depressed yet.

SET YOUR CLOCK BACK We’ll get right to it. The medical professionals at Thrive Health Solutions can help get those declining hormones humming again. One of the many things Thrive specializes in are anti-aging treatments. That Growth Hormone we were talking about? There is a hormone (you probably wouldn’t have heard about it) called Sermorelin (often called the new “Fountain of Youth) that can factor in to enhancing the growth of declining growth hormone levels. And that declining testosterone? Testosterone replacement therapy in the form of shots or pellets can be done together with Sermorelin to increase energy, strength and so much more. Like that “more” word, right? The expertise of anti-aging treatments at Thrive Health Solutions is unmatched. And the results, often unbelievable. So, call Thrive for an appointment now. Clock is ticking!


Ugh, holiday stress! Sleigh bells ring, children sing. Visions of sugarplums dance in your head. The fact is, for many of us “Feliz Navidad” becomes “Peliz, not again”. As reported by Fox News, instead of being filled with joy, for many people the holiday season is actually filled with physical and emotional discomfort with a whopping 88% who feel stressed out. And that stress is directly linked to the synchronicity of your hormones. If you’re feeling stressed, your hormones will land on the naughty list quicker than you can say “You got me socks again????”

It’s enough to age you.


Stress can make the holidays the most maddening time of the year. You feel like you’ll never find the perfect gifts. You feel like you’ll never make the perfect potato pancakes. Your dog feels that peeing on the tree is a great idea. Your budget is overstretched. Your gut seems to be growing from all those goodies you giddily gorge on. Your calendar crashes, your entire body begins to crumble under the stress; heartburn, hangover, memory loss, loss of libido (not anytime this season, hon), loss of sleep, weight gain…the weight of the holidays would quash anyone’s jolly. And it can all affect the aging process.

Aging. Bah Hum-bug.


While the holidays might be considered a never-ending happy hour, your stress hormones are anything but happy. Even anything Apple won’t ease the prolonged physical, emotional and mental stress that can unbalance these hormones, putting a stress on your entire body. It can make you feel like 30 going on 80. Because of unbalanced hormones, everything about the holiday can age you.

Not even an Amazon elf can help.


Don’t let yourself become a holiday stress statistic. There are things you can do to toss stress out of your stocking;

  • Resist the urge to go all Marth Stewart on your entertaining.
  • Don’t shop ‘til you drop.
  • Be assured that gift cards fit everyone.
  • Learn to say no. Make that “nooooooooo…..”

Give it a rest. Do something good for you. Ask Rudolph for a lift. Hear he’s driving Lyft now, or is it Uber? He’s got a lot of time on his hoofs seeing as Santa is too stressed to get around the way he used to. Have him drop you at Thrive Health Solutions where an amazing gift is waiting for you;

Thrive’s proprietary Sermorelin Anti-Aging Treatments. (Fa la la la la…)

Sermorelin, while often called the “New Fountain of Youth’, can’t peel off the years, but it can deliver results you can easily see and feel. Increased energy. Enhanced sex drive. Improved metabolism. Loss of belly fat. We’ll take those gifts over any tech. The professionals at Thrive have years of experience in the field of anti-aging. And the help they give you is more inspiring than Pinterest and Instagram combined. As many very wise men would say:

Make an appointment at Thrive now. And get the comfort and joy you’ve been dreaming of.

Looking for the best solution for anti aging Denver? Know your facts, Thrive with our solution.


Our age-obsessed culture is completely consumed with anti aging and increasing longevity, but growing old is unavoidable. Bummer. But hey, they say 40 is the new 30, while 60 now looks and feels like 40. Cher at 73? Tina Turner at 79? Mick Jagger at 75? They seem ageless. We’re not all so lucky. The fact is, Ponce de Leon never found the Fountain of Youth. And you’re never going to find it in online anti aging “miracle creams”. Gratefully, though, our capacity and understanding of the aging process has left us with opportunities to live vital and active lives far past those of our ancestors. Aging doesn’t mean turning into dottering oldies with failing memories and non-existent sex lives. But aging does come with many physical changes to our bodies.


So why do we age? No single process can explain all the changes of aging. There are many theories; one states that aging is natural and programmed into the body, while another says that aging is a result of damage which is accumulated over time. In the end, aging is a complex interaction of genetics, chemistry, physiology, and behavior. For example, the immune system is programmed to decline over time, leaving people more susceptible to diseases. Cells and tissues simply wear out. Even environmental influences such as free radicals can do damage to our body’s systems. Another extremely key factor is the hormones that circulate throughout our bodies. But we’ll get to that.


As we’ve said, as we age, our body’s organs and other systems make changes. Here is a brief overview of how body systems age:

  • Heart Aging: the heart muscle thickens with age as a response to the thickening of the arteries. This thicker heart has a lower maximum pumping rate.
  • Immune System Aging: T cells take longer to replenish in older people and their ability to function declines.
  • Arteries and Aging: arteries usually stiffen with age, making it more difficult for the heart to pump blood through them.
  • Lung Aging: the maximum capacity of the lungs may decrease as much as 40 percent between ages 20 and 70.
  • Brain Aging: as the brain ages, some of the connections between neurons seem to be reduced or less efficient. This is not yet well understood.
  • Kidney Aging: the kidneys become less efficient at cleaning waste from the body.
  • Bladder Aging: the total capacity of the bladder declines and tissues may atrophy, causing incontinence.
  • Body Fat and Aging: body fat increases until middle age and then weight typically begins to decrease. The body fat also moves deeper in the body as we age.
  • Muscle Aging: muscle tone declines about 22 percent by age 70, though exercise can slow this decline.
  • Bone Aging: starting at age 35, our bones begin to lose density. Walking, running and resistance training can slow this process.
  • Sight and Aging: starting in the 40s, difficulty seeing close detail may begin.
  • Hearing and Aging: as people age, the ability to hear high frequencies declines.

But relax, aging doesn’t have to seem like the end of the world.


7 Signs Your Body Is Aging Faster Than You Are:

You have hair loss—and not just on your head – Seeing a little (or a lot) of scalp peeking through your hairline is a well-known sign of aging but surprisingly, it isn’t limited to your head. If you’re younger and you notice things getting a little sparse on your arms, legs or *ahem* other places, it can indicate your body is aging faster than you think.

You can’t lift the 30-pound bag of dog food into your cart – Muscle strength is directly correlated to how you age, since you actually lose muscle mass the older you get, making you progressively weaker.

Bruises take forever to heal – One important and often overlooked sign of premature aging is that you find yourself healing from wounds and injuries more slowly than you used to. Skin is your largest organ and normally has an amazing ability to heal itself, so if yours isn’t recovering well, something is definitely going awry in the internal aging systems.

Your favorite pants are tight in the waist but loose in the legs – Gaining fat around your midsection is a common sign your body is aging quickly. Add that to the muscle and bone loss that also accompany aging, causing your thigh muscles to shrink and your height to decrease, and you have the recipe for some really poor-fitting pants.

You’re burning through giant bottles of lotion – Is your skin chronically dry and flaky? That could be a sign of premature aging. However, there are other causes, like everyday things causing your dry skin. It can also indicate an underlying medical condition like hypothyroidism. Low thyroid function left untreated can also give you a puffy face, weight gain, thinning hair, impaired memory, painful joints, and muscle weakness—all things that will age you faster than a time machine.

You sleep like a baby—fitfully, and not through the night – Insomnia or problems getting a good night’s sleep can be a sign your body is aging quickly. Often this is due to high levels of cortisol, also known as the stress hormone. Cortisol rises are inevitable as we age, however, with many people it rises too quickly, usually due to stress. Too much cortisol not only ages you faster but can promote weight gain, lower your immune function, and can lead to many chronic diseases.

Your period is super random – For women, the frequency and predictability of your menstrual cycle can be an early sign of aging, and it can start 15 years before menopause. One sign many people do not correlate with aging in females is irregular menstrual cycles in their 30s and 40s. This hormonal irregularity is important to address since changing hormones can increase weight gain, decrease muscle mass, cause sleep disturbances, and cause your body to age faster, predisposing you to heart disease, osteoporosis, and diabetes.


As you can see, there are a myriad of reasons that can add to the aging process. But the one we can’t stress enough, are hormones. Hormones are the chemical messengers in our bodies. They flow through our bloodstream to signal specific cells or organs, telling them what to do to keep all our body systems in balance. When they’re out of whack, you’re out of luck. Hormones are key in the aging process. When our hormones are unbalanced, our bodies age more quickly. No one understands better than the medical experts at Thrive Health Solutions. They look at the whole person, aiming to make them feel their very best. That’s why they offer comprehensive cutting-edge treatments in hormone balancing and anti aging. All safe, all medically supervised. When you put your body in the hands of the knowledgeable, experienced specialists at Thrive, you can trust that their hormone balancing, and anti-aging treatments will deliver noticeable results. You’ll feel better. You’ll look better. (In fact, probably your best.) And what could be better than that? Aging doesn’t have to take a serious toll on your body.
