Honolulu Testosterone Therapy for the treatment of Low-T and Andropause
Testosterone is the most important aspect of maintaining and preserving sexual health. Testosterone is responsible for maintaining and preserving masculinity—this includes not only sexual vitality, but physical and emotional vitality as well. Testosterone promotes confidence, erectile function, healthy body composition, and libido, and Testosterone Deficiency erodes all of these factors. Furthermore, Testosterone Deficiency also leads to symptoms ranging from depression and cognitive decline to atherosclerosis and hypertenstion.
Testosterone Deficiency can be effectively and fully treated by Testosterone Therapy. Low-T is a chronic condition, but that doesn't mean that there aren't medical options to overcome the disorder. Testosterone Treatments available to Honolulu residents provided by our clinic include Testosterone Transdermal Patches, Topical Testosterone Gels and Creams, and Low-T Injections such as Testosterone Enanthate and Testosterone Cypionate.
Honolulu HGH Injection Therapy for Somatopause and Human Growth Hormone Deficiency
Age-Related HGH Deficiency is also known as Somatopause, and it is a form of Hormone Imbalance that can diminish the health and wellness of both men and women. HGH Levels peak while we are young and growing, and level off at the end of puberty. The HGH Production that we experience in the late teens and the twenties is designed to help preserve peak physiological capacity. Human Growth Hormone supercharges cellular metabolism, helping the body operate at a high level which preserves health and normal function.
Growth Hormone Deficiency is characterized by many symptoms, among which are increased recovery time from injury, poor cholesterol, loss of Bone Mineral Density, increased body fat, loss of strength and muscle mass, fatigue and frailty, and cognitive decline and fuzzy memory. HGH Injection Therapy is an effective means to combat HGH Deficiency and preserve the health of the patient, potentially improving longevity by safeguarding the health of the patient. Our clinic offers Honolulu HGH Therapy to qualified patients!
Honolulu Sermorelin Acetate Injection Treatments for HGH Restoration
Bio-Identical Injectable Sermorelin is another Honolulu Growth Hormone Therapy option available to patients from Hawaii. Sermorelin is a special medical treatment which is derived from an HGH precursor hormone known as GH-RH, and has the ability to boost Growth Hormone Production to normal adult levels, naturally, bypassing the need for HGH Injections. Sermorelin is a highly effective recombinant HRT treatment, and is available off-label if our Hawaii Hormone Doctors find that you can benefit from increased Growth Hormone Levels.
Sermorelin is a safe and effective HRT treatment, and is actually considered even better than HGH Injection Therapy for patients with Age-Associated HGH Decline. Most people have perfectly healthy pituitaries all throughout their lives, their brains just stop signalling for adequate amounts of the hormone. Sermorelin promotes normal and natural Hormone rhythms, unlike Recombinant HGH. Along with Sermorelin's cheaper price, it's no wonder more and more patients and doctors are interested in Sermorelin!
Honolulu Bio-Identical HCG for Dieting and Weight Loss
Americans have been struggling with a decades-long war with obesity, and Hawaii is no different. More men and women are overweight and obese than ever, and are looking for a medical treatment to help them efficiently and quickly cut the fat. For those that have tried other weight loss methods and diets, without success, the HCG Diet is available to help patients lose weight using a clinically derived Hormone Therapy regimen.
HCG Injection Therapy, when used in tandem with a sufficiently low calorie diet, increases the fat burning power of the body, leading to weight loss of potentially up to a pound per day over thirty days. HCG is also highly sought after because it lessens the feelings of hunger associated with caloric restriction while also promoting a healthier body composition than restrictive dieting alone. If you want to try a physician-mediated weight loss plan in Honolulu, give us a call to learn more about the treatment.
Honolulu, Hawaii Information
Honolulu is the largest city in the state of Hawaii, and is located on the largest island in the Hawaii chain—Oahu. Honolulu is also often referred to as Sheltered Bay or the Crossroads of the Pacific. Honolulu is one of the most popular destinations in America for tourism, because of the beautiful beaches and year-round excellent weather. As you might imagine, tourism is among the most important factors of the Honolulu economy, as millions of tourists visit the city and the state each and every year.
As a result of the isolated location of Hawaii, there are many businesses in Honolulu which cater specifically to the needs of the people that live on the islands, including Hawaiian Electric Industries, First Hawaiian Bank, the Bank of Hawaii, and Alexander and Baldwin, a large agriculture and real estate corporation. There are three universities located in Honolulu—Hawaii Pacific Unversity, Chaminade University, and the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Things to see and do in Honolulu include Waikiki Beach, Lyon Arboretum, the Honolulu Zoo, and the Bishop Museum. Nearby cities close to Honolulu include Waimalu, Kaneohe, Pearl City, and Kailua.
All About Honolulu, Hawaii Geographic Area
Honolulu ( /ˌhɒnəˈluːluː/ or /ˌhoʊnoʊˈluːluː/; Hawaiian: [hono'lulu]) is the capital and the most populous city of the U.S. state of Hawaii.a[›] Honolulu is the southernmost major U.S. city. Although the name "Honolulu" refers to the urban area on the southeastern shore of the island of Oahu, the city and county government are consolidated as Honolulu County which covers the entire island. For statistical purposes, the U.S. Census Bureau recognizes the urban part of Honolulu as a census-designated place (CDP). Honolulu is a major financial center of the islands of the Pacific Ocean. The population of the census-designated place was 337,256 at the 2010 census, while the population of the city and county was 953,207. Honolulu is the most populous state capital relative to state population.
In the Hawaiian language, Honolulu means "sheltered bay" or "place of shelter". The old name is said to be Kou, a district roughly encompassing the area from Nuuanu Avenue to Alakea Street and from Hotel Street to Queen Street which is the heart of the present downtown district. The city has been the capital of the Hawaiian islands since 1845 and gained historical recognition following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor near the city on December 7, 1941.
Honolulu has a massive skyline. As of April 2012, the city had a total of over 470 high rises, which is ranked 4th only behind New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles. Similar to New York and Chicago, highrises are located in more than just the downtown area; neighboring and nearby districts including Ala Moana and Waikiki include large clusters of office, residential, and hotel high-rises, extending from Downtown, all the way to Diamond Head.
Evidence of the first settlement of Honolulu by the original Polynesian migrants to the archipelago comes from oral histories and artifacts. These indicate that there was a settlement where Honolulu now stands in the 11th century. However, after Kamehameha I conquered Oʻahu in the Battle of Nuʻuanu at Nuʻuanu Pali, he moved his royal court from the Island of Hawaiʻi to Waikīkī in 1804. His court relocated in 1809 to what is now downtown Honolulu. The capital was moved back to Kailua-Kona in 1812.
In 1794, Captain William Brown of Great Britain was the first foreigner to sail into what is now Honolulu Harbor. More foreign ships followed, making the port of Honolulu a focal point for merchant ships traveling between North America and Asia.
In 1845, Kamehameha III moved the permanent capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom from Lahaina on Maui to Honolulu. He and the kings that followed him transformed Honolulu into a modern capital, erecting buildings such as St. Andrew's Cathedral, ʻIolani Palace, and Aliʻiōlani Hale. At the same time, Honolulu became the center of commerce in the islands, with descendants of American missionaries establishing major businesses in downtown Honolulu.
Despite the turbulent history of the late 19th century and early 20th century, such as the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy in 1893, Hawaiʻi's subsequent annexation by the United States in 1898, followed by a large fire in 1900, and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, Honolulu remained the capital, largest city, and main airport and seaport of the Hawaiian Islands.
An economic and tourism boom following statehood brought rapid economic growth to Honolulu and Hawaiʻi. Modern air travel brings, as of 2007, 7.6 million visitors annually to the islands, with 62.3% entering at Honolulu International Airport. Today, Honolulu is a modern city with numerous high-rise buildings, and Waikīkī is the center of the tourism industry in Hawaiʻi, with thousands of hotel rooms. The UK consulting firm Mercer, in a 2009 assessment "conducted to help governments and major companies place employees on international assignments", ranked Honolulu 29th worldwide in quality of living; the survey factored in political stability, personal freedom, sanitation, crime, housing, the natural environment, recreation, banking facilities, availability of consumer goods, education, and public services including transportation.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 68.4 square miles (177.2 km2). 60.5 square miles (156.7 km2) of it is land, and 7.9 square miles (20.5 km2) of it (11.56%) is water.
The closest location on the mainland to Honolulu is the Point Arena, California Lighthouse, at 2,045 nautical miles (3,787 km). (Nautical vessels require some additional distance to circumnavigate Makapu'u Point.) However, part of the Aleutian Islands of Alaska are slightly closer to Honolulu than the mainland.
Honolulu experiences a tropical savanna climate (Köppen classification As) with a mostly dry summer season due to a rainshadow effect that suppresses summer rains. Honolulu has lots of sunshine most of the year. Temperatures vary little throughout the months, with average high temperatures of 80–90 °F (27–32 °C) and average lows of 65–75 °F (18–24 °C) throughout the year. Temperatures rarely exceed 95 °F (35 °C), with lows in the upper 50s °F (14–15 °C) occurring once or twice a year. The highest recorded temperature was 95 °F (35 °C) during a heat wave in September 1998. The highest recorded temperature in the state was also recorded later that day in Ni'ihau. The lowest recorded temperature was 52 °F (11 °C) on February 16, 1902 and January 20, 1969. Waters off the coast of Honolulu average 81 °F (27 °C) in the summer months and 77 °F (25 °C) in the winter months.
Annual average rain is 21.1 in (540 mm), which mainly occurs during the winter months of October through early April, with very little rainfall during the summer. Honolulu has an average of 278 sunny days and 90 wet days per year. Although Honolulu is known to have a wet and dry season, it is unnoticeable. This is mainly because light showers fall in the summer while heavier rain falls during the winter. Yet, both seasons experience the same amount of rainy days.
Although the city is situated at the tropics, hurricanes are quite rare. The last recorded hurricane that hit the city was Category 4 Hurricane Iniki in 1992. Tornadoes are also uncommon and usually hit once every 15 years. Watersprouts off the coast are somewhat more common, hitting about once every five years.
Peter Carlisle has served as the 13th mayor of Honolulu since October 11, 2010. The municipal offices of the City and County of Honolulu, including Honolulu Hale, the seat of the city and county, are located in the Capitol District, as are the Hawaii state government buildings.
The Capitol District is within the Honolulu Census County Division (CCD). The Honolulu CCD is located on the southeast coast of Oahu between Makapuu and Halawa. The division boundary follows the Koolau crestline, so Makapuʻu Beach is in the Koolaupoko District. On the west, the division boundary follows Halawa Stream, then crosses Red Hill and runs just west of Aliamanu Crater, so that Aloha Stadium, Pearl Harbor (with the USS Arizona Memorial), and Hickam Air Force Base are actually all located in the island's Ewa CCD.
The Hawaii Department of Public Safety operates the Oahu Community Correctional Center, the jail for the island of Oahu, in Honolulu CCD.
The United States Postal Service operates post offices in Honolulu CDP. The main Honolulu Post Office is located by the international airport at 3600 Aolele Street. Federal Detention Center, Honolulu, operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons, is in the CDP.
Several countries have diplomatic facilities in Honolulu CDP in the City and County of Honolulu. They include consulates of Japan, South Korea, Philippines, Federated States of Micronesia, Australia, and the Marshall Islands.
The population of the Urban Honolulu CDP was 337,256 according to the 2010 U.S. Census. Of those, 166,500 (49.4%) were male and 170,756 (50.6%) were female. The median age for males was 40.0 and 43.0 for females; the overall median age was 41.3. Approximately 84.7% of the total population was 16 years and over; 82.6% were 18 years and over, 78.8% were 21 years and over, 21.4% were 62 years and over, and 17.8% were 65 years and over.

Hispanics and Latinos of any race made up 5.4% of the population. In 1970, the Census Bureau reported Honolulu's population as 33.9% white and 53.7% Asian and Pacific Islander.
Asian Americans represent the majority of Honolulu's population. Japanese Americans represent 19.9% (67,130) of the population; Filipino Americans represent 13.2% (44,573) of the population. Chinese American made up 10.4% of the population and numbered at 35,088 individuals. People solely of Native Hawaiian ancestry made up just 3.2% of the population and numbered 10,847 individuals. There were 5,067 Samoan Americans who made up 1.5% of the population. People of Guamanian or Chamorro descent made up 0.2% of the population and numbered 841 residents.
The largest city and airport in the Hawaiian Islands, Honolulu acts as a natural gateway to the islands' large tourism industry, which brings millions of visitors and contributes $10 billion annually to the local economy. Honolulu's location in the Pacific also makes it a large business and trading hub, particularly between the East and the West. Other important aspects of the city's economy include military defense, research and development, and manufacturing.
Among the companies based in Honolulu are:
Go! Mokulele, Hawaiian Airlines, Island Air, and Aloha Air Cargo are headquartered in the CDP. Prior to its dissolution, Aloha Airlines was headquartered in the CDP. At one time Mid-Pacific Airlines had its headquarters on the property of Honolulu International Airport.
In 2009, Honolulu had a 4.5% increase in the average price of rent, maintaining it in the second most expensive rental market ranking among 210 U.S. metropolitan areas.
Since no national bank chains have any branches in Hawaii, many visitors and new residents use different banks. First Hawaiian Bank is the largest and oldest bank in Hawaii and their headquarters are at the First Hawaiian Center, the tallest building in the State of Hawaii.
Located on the western end of the CDP, Honolulu International Airport (HNL) is the principal aviation gateway to the state of Hawaii. Kalaeloa Airport is primarily a commuter facility used by unscheduled air taxis, general aviation and transient and locally based military aircraft.

In November 2010, voters approved a charter amendment to create a public transit authority to oversee the planning, construction, operation and future extensions to Honolulu's future rail system (see below). Operations began on July 1, 2011. The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) currently includes a 10-member board of directors; three members appointed by the mayor, three members selected by the Honolulu City Council, and the city and state transportation directors.
Established by former Mayor Frank F. Fasi as the replacement for the Honolulu Rapid Transit Company (HRT), Honolulu's TheBus system has been twice honored by the American Public Transportation Association bestowing the title of "America's Best Transit System" for 1994–1995 and 2000–2001. TheBus operates 107 routes serving Honolulu and most major cities and towns on Oahu. TheBus comprises a fleet of 531 buses, and is run by the non-profit corporation Oahu Transit Services in conjunction with the city Department of Transportation Services. Honolulu is ranked 4th for highest per-capita use of mass transit in the United States.
Currently, there is no urban rail transit system in Honolulu, although electric street railways were operated in Honolulu by the now-defunct Honolulu Rapid Transit Company prior to World War II. Predecessors to the Honolulu Rapid Transit Company were the Honolulu Rapid Transit and Land Company (began 1903) and Hawaiian Tramways (began 1888).
The City and County of Honolulu is currently constructing a 20-mile (32 km) rail transit line that will connect Honolulu with cities and suburban areas near Pearl Harbor and in the Leeward and West Oahu regions. The Honolulu High-Capacity Transit Corridor Project is aimed at alleviating traffic congestion for West Oahu commuters while being integral in the westward expansion of the metropolitan area. The project however has been criticized for its cost, delays, and potential environmental impacts.
