No one likes the idea of getting older. Your body slows down, your energy level decreases, the lines and wrinkles start creeping their way across your face. Weight and health issues also become a concern as well as systems start to wear out. Normally, these are topics discussed within the circles of womanhood, each member of the gathered female contingent relaying her own frustrations at just what’s going on and seeking affirmation from the other ladies around her as they all exchange fixes and tricks to combat those creeping effects of age. But women aren’t the only ones who experience the shifts, as men’s aging process is just as much a frustration—and a true concern—as that of women.
For that reason, the men’s healthcare industry has taken a shift into addressing the various signs and symptoms of aging, putting greater focus on treatments that prevent and often reverse some of the damage of aging. Recent years have led to new technologies and new innovations that one might never have imagined, and on the cusp of that trend is the team of experts at the offices of Revive Testosterone & Cryotherapy in Paducah, Kentucky, and Clarksville, Tennessee. Having opened their flagship location in summer of 2017, the practice experienced such success that they were encouraged to open a second location in late 2018, offering services that have been scientifically shown to revitalize, strengthen, and re-energize their male patients and bring them back to optimal levels of health.
“... our ultimate goal here is to empower our patients and assist them in taking control of their lives.” - Joshua Hudson
“We’ve been so fortunate to have already helped hundreds of patients and equip them with the knowledge and tools they need to reach their goals and help prevent many diseases. We’ve seen how difficult it can be to seek out treatment and how misinformed many are, and our ultimate goal here is to empower our patients and assist them in taking control or their lives, their vitality, and their body optimization journey,” explains Joshua Hudson, who cofounded Revive with partner Jerry Smith.
An RN with experience in numerous healthcare fields including CCU, hospice, and orthopedics as well as a background in human and health performance and personal training, Hudson certainly has the resume to back him up in his work. But no partnership would be truly equal without matched expertise as well as complementary strengths, and Smith’s own background certainly fits the bill. Having served as an Orthopedic Spine PA for the past six years in addition spending years in hospital medicine, Smith gained his first insight into hormone optimization when he began managing osteoporosis patients, and he now brings that expertise to bear in the practice with the patients he sees. Rounding out their team are Dr. Clint Hill, MD, whose passion lies in hormone optimization, and Dr. Jena Ruxer, MD, who uses a multi-faceted approach with her patients that incorporates traditional medicine and holistic ideas as well as cosmetic components to achieve results.
Revive is a practice that truly does live up to its name, offering services that revive—from the inside out. Among the most groundbreaking is, of course, cryotherapy, which utilizes extreme cold to achieve various effects. Unlike some practices which use tools to target specific areas of the body, however, Revive’s Clarksville office offers full-body cryotherapy treatments in their Cold Cryo Sauna. Naturally, the idea of stepping into a space-age chamber to be blasted with temperatures between -120 degrees and -190 degrees isn’t exactly what most guys would consider fun. But the effect that that deep freeze has is remarkable, and studies have shown the treatments to be anything but ice sold to an Eskimo.
So just what’s all the hype about? According to research, cryotherapy’s benefits include:
Strengthening the immune system
Improvement of circulation
Strengthening the blood vessels
Increases metabolism to reduce body weight
Decreases cellulite deposits
Decelerates the aging process
Combats age-related aches and pains in joints and muscles
Helps increase performance levels
Decreases muscle cramping
Aids muscle recovery
“Walking out of the chamber leaves people feeling invigorated and ready to take on the day, and the surge of energy you get is bar-none!” - Joshua Hudson
Unfortunately, one of the other main complaints of aging in men is low testosterone, which is why Revive also offers testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). Low testosterone can cause:
Decreases in quality of life
Decreased sex drive
Decreased strength and athletic performance
Feelings of sadness or depression
Decreased work performance
Increased risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other metabolic disorders
Decreased bone mass
Reversing many of those concerns through TRT, Revive’s success is based on a personal approach to each patient’s needs. “We look at multiple factors including symptoms and lab tests, and we monitor progress to ensure that it’s being effective,” Hudson explains.
