The human body and mind are designed to operate at maximum efficiency when Hormones are in proper sync, but many hormones, including Human Growth Hormone and Testosterone, enter a state of continuous depletion around the age of thirty.
At our Fully Licensed El Monte Hormone Clinic, we recognize how vital that Hormone Balance is to your overall health. Our team of Board Certified HRT Doctors has helped hundreds of patients just like you experience the immense enhancement in quality of life that is afforded through Hormone Restoration.

HGH and Sermorelin Injections for Somatopause Relief
Of all the human body's hormones, few have such a dramatic effect on age-related wellness than Human Growth Hormone. HGH is a prime metabolic hormone which controls cellular metabolism. Human Growth Hormone is critically essential to development and normal growth, but for adults, it helps keep physiological systems running smoothly and at peak efficiency.
Unfortunately, aging leads to an inevitable decline in Growth Hormone Levels, which can lead to symptoms such as loss of strength, depression, reduced focus, unhealthy changes in body composition, fat accumulation, weakened immune health, and more.
Our Hormone Clinic offers both Sermorelin Acetate and Bio-Identical HGH for the treatment of Age-Related Human Growth Hormone Deficiency. A six-month regimen of HGH Injections can provide immense relief from the symptoms of Somatopause. Sermorelin Acetate is an HGH Alternative that offers similar results for less cost. Allow our Trusted and Experienced Endocrinologists to help you decide which is right for you!
El Monte Testosterone Clinic for Andropause and Low-T
For aging men, Low Libido and Erectile Dysfunction can be incredibly troubling. Testosterone Deficiency is frustratingly common among men fifty and older, and not only impairs sexual sufficiency, but also has a negative impact on psychological health, strength, energy levels, and exercise capacity. We can help you determine if Low-T is the cause of your health and sexual troubles.

Information and Facts About El Monte
El Monte is one of the numerous suburbs which comprise the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area. Though officially founded in 1912, El Monte was first settled by American immigrants during the 1840s via the Old Spanish Trail, which extended from the Santa Fe Trail. El Monte became a popular destination during the early 20th century because it was used to help refugees from the Dust Bowl in the American West start a new life in California. Today, El Monte is one of many California cities that has experienced an influx of Asian immigration, further increasing the diversity of the region.
Cities around El Monte include Monterey Park, West Covina, Baldwin Park, San Marino, and Vincent. A large proportion of the El Monte population commutes to work in Los Angeles and the surrounding area, but there are many major employers within the city, such as the California Air Resources Board, Driftwood Dairy, Longo Toyota-Lexus, and the El Monte Adult School. El Monte is just a short drive to the Santa Fe Dam Recreation Area and Whittier Narrows.
All About El Monte, California Geographic Area
El Monte /ɛl ˈmɒntiː/ is a residential, industrial, and commercial city in Los Angeles County of Southern California, the United States. The city lies in the San Gabriel Valley east of the city of Los Angeles.
El Monte's slogan is "Welcome to Friendly El Monte," and historically is known as "The End of the Santa Fe Trail." As of the 2010 census, the city had a total population of 113,475, down from 115,965 at the 2000 census. As of 2010, El Monte is the 228th largest city in the United States, and is the 51st largest city in California.
El Monte was literally an oasis or island in the middle of the arid San Gabriel Valley. Sitting between the San Gabriel and Rio Hondo Rivers. Residents claim that anything could be grown here due to the two rivers. Between 1770 and 1830, Spanish soldiers and missionaries often stopped here for respite. They called the area, 'El Monte,' which in Spanish means 'meadow or marsh' or 'the wooded place. Most people assume the name refers to a mountain, but the word is an archaic Spanish translation of that era, there were no mountains in the valley. The explorers had found this oasis of rich, low altitude land, blanketed with thick growths of wispy willows, alders, and cattails, located between the two rivers. They also found wild grapevines and watercress. The "Island" is approximately 7 miles long and 4 miles wide. When the State Legislature organized California into more manageable designated townships in the 1850s, they called it the El Monte Township. In a short time the name returned to the original El Monte.
In earlier days, El Monte was a stopping place for the people going to the gold fields in the North, near Sacramento. The first settlers with their families were Nicholas Schmidt, Ira W. Thompson, G and F. Cuddeback, J. Corbin and J Sheldon. Settlement began in 1849, though Spanish missionaries and soldiers passed through the area as early as the 1770s. The Old Spanish Trail, originating in Santa Fe became a continuation of the well-known Santa Fe Trail, that began in 1821, when the nation’s first major international commercial highway was estalihed stretching from Kansas City, Missouri to Santa Fe. In the 1850s the village (renamed Lexington by American settlers) was the crossroad between Los Angeles, San Bernardino and San Pedro. In the early days, it had a reputation as a rough town where men often settled disputes with knives and guns in its gambling saloons. Defense against Indian raids and the crimes of bandit gangs like that of Juan Flores and Pancho Daniel led to the formation of a local militia company called the Monte Rangers in February 1854. After the Monte Rangers disbanded, justice for Los Angeles County, in the form of a lynching, was often provided by the local vigilantes called the "El Monte Boys".
The first permanent residents arrived in El Monte around 1849-1850 mostly from Texas, Arkansas and Missouri, during a time when thousands migrated to California in search of gold. Though few found any gold, these migrants ventured upon the bounty of fruitful, rich land along the San Gabriel River and began to build homesteads there. The farmers were very pleased at the increasing success of El Monte’s agricultural community, and it steadily grew over the years. In 1858, it became a stop on the Butterfield Overland Mail. By 1861 El Monte had become a sizeable settlement and during the American Civil War was considered a stronghold of sympathetic secessionists. A. J. King an Undersheriff of Los Angeles County (and former member of the earlier "Monte Rangers" or "Monte Boys") with other influential men in El Monte, formed a secessionist militia company, like the Los Angeles Mounted Rifles, called the Monte Mounted Rifles on March 23, 1861. However the attempt failed when following the battle of Fort Sumter, A. J. King marched through the streets with a portrait of the Confederate General P. G. T. Beauregard
and was arrested by a U.S. Marshal. State arms sent from Governor John G. Downey for the unit were held up by Union officers at the port of San Pedro. Union troops established New Camp Carleton near the town in March 1862 to suppress any rebellion, it was shut down three years later at the end of the war. El Monte was the first town in Southern California to be founded by American citizens of European descent.
Southern Pacific built a railroad depot in town in 1873, stimulating the growth of local agriculture. El Monte was incorporated as a municipality in 1912. During the 1930s, the city became a vital site for the New Deal's federal Subsistence Homestead project, a Resettlement Administration program that helped grant single-family ranch houses to qualifying applicants. Famous photographer Dorothea Lange took many pictures of the houses for her work for the Farm Security Administration.
Formerly home to many white settlers from the 1930s Dust Bowl Migration, the city has evolved into a majority Hispanic community. Representing the historical significance of the Santa Fe Trail, El Monte built the Santa Fe Trail Historical Park in 1989, at Valley Blvd and Santa Anita Ave. The trail remained America’s greatest route for several decades thereafter. The El Monte Historical Museum at 3150 Tyler Avenue, is considered to be one of the best community museums in the state of California.
El Monte is credited with being the birthplace of TV variety shows. Hometown Jamboree, a KTLA-TV Los Angeles-based show, was actually produced at the American Legion Stadium in El Monte, California in the 1950s. The Saturday night stage show was hosted and produced by Cliffie Stone, who helped popularize country music in California.
In the 1950s, as the unstable racial climate and the hostility toward rock & roll started to merge, rock & roll shows were forced from the City of Los Angeles by police pressure. The El Monte Legion Stadium, outside the city limits, became the site of a series for rock and roll concerts by Johnny Otis and other performers. (Johnny Otis along with Alan Freed and Dick Clark were the major powers in the growing rock and roll industry.) During the fifties, teenagers from all over Southern California flocked to El Monte Legion Stadium every Friday and Saturday night to see their favorite performers. Famous singers who performed there include: the Ritchie Valens, Rosie & The Originals, Brenton Wood, Earth Wind & Fire, The Grateful Dead, Dick Dale and his Del-Tones and Johnny "Guitar" Watson. Disc jockeys Art Laboe and Huggy Boy enhanced the stadium's popularity with their highly publicized Friday Night Dances with many popular record artists of the late 1950s and 1960s. "El Monte Legion Stadium", as it was often called, was the "Happening" place to be for the teenagers of that era. In a closed-circuit telecast, The Beatles and the Beach Boys were seen there on March 14, 1964.
El Monte is known for the long-time rock & roll hit "Memories of El Monte", written by Frank Zappa and originally recorded by The Penguins, one of the local Doo-wop groups from the 1950s that became famous nationwide. The song is in remembrance of The El Monte Legion Stadium and can be heard on many albums including Art Laboe's Memories of El Monte. Although the stadium closed their doors nearly 50 years ago, the music continues to live on. El Monte was the birthplace of singer–guitarist Mary Ford, of Les Paul & Mary Ford fame. John Larkin, known as (Scatman John), is also a native. El Monte was home to musicians Gregg Myers and Joe McDonald, who performed in the 1960s with Country Joe & the Fish. Cheech Marin of Cheech and Chong fame was an El Monte denizen.
A popular attraction from 1925 to 1942 was Gay's Lion Farm. Two European retired circus stars, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Gay, operated this tourist attraction, which has been called “the Disneyland of the 1920s and 1930s” by historian Jack Barton, and many others of that era. The Gays raised wild animals for use in the motion picture industry and housed over 200 African lions. Many of the lions starred in films during the 1920s and 1930s, including the Tarzan films starring Elmo Lincoln and Johnny Weismuller. The Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer lion logo was made with "Slats" (1924–1927), and his lookalike successor "Jackie". In 1925, El Monte Union High School adopted “The Lions” name for its teams, and the Gays provided a lion mascot for big games. The famous live lion farm was closed temporarily due to wartime meat shortages. It never reopened, but a life-sized memorial statue can be seen next to I-10 on the SE corner of Valley Boulevard and Peck Road. The original lion statue, commissioned for the Farm, stands in front of nearby El Monte High School.
Horse racing's most famous jockey, Willie Shoemaker, was a resident and attended El Monte High School, until he dropped out to work in the nearby stables. El Monte was also briefly the home to author James Ellroy until his mother Geneva was murdered there in 1958. Former baseball player Fred Lynn was a resident of El Monte. Actor-filmmaker Timothy Carey filmed much of his underground feature The World's Greatest Sinner (1962) in El Monte. Modern authors Salvador Plascencia, 33, and Michael Jaime-Becerra, 36, both grew up in El Monte and each references El Monte in his novels. Mr. Ed, the Palomino of the classic 60s television show, was foaled in 1949 in El Monte and named "Bamboo Harvester". Artist collective "mindfunk" work live art studio is based in El Monte. Since 2000 "mindfunk" has been producing underground urban multimedia artwork.
