Fayetteville North Carolina Testosterone Restoration Treatments for Low-T
Low-T can be embarrassing to talk about, but don't let that get in the way of reaching out for Testosterone Treatments that can absolutely change your life. If you have noticed a sharp decline in your bedroom proficiency, combined with a general loss of sex drive and libido, these are the most prominent signs of Andropause.

The sexual symptoms of Low-T are the most recognizable issues, but they are truly only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Testosterone Deficiency. Other symptoms of Hypogonadism include depression, anxiety, increased BMI, fatigue, weaker muscles, and more. Our Testosterone Doctors and Specialists can prescribe you with Bio-Identical Testosterone Injections, as well as other treatments such as Transdermal Creams and Patches in order to restore Testosterone Balance and get your health and your life back on the road to virility.
Fayetteville North Carolina Human Growth Hormone Clinic for Hypopituitarism Treatment
Because of its use for Performance Enhancement and other illicit purposes, HGH Injections truly get a bad rap that they don't deserve. Human Growth Hormone deficiency is a real medical malady which severely impacts the form and function of the human body, and all of this bad press only convinces men and women that could truly benefit from the treatment to avoid seeking it out.
The Conscious Evolution Institute specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of Hypopituitarism and HGH Imbalance, and can help you establish your potential clinical need for Growth Hormone Shot Therapy. With a simple physical and blood test, our HGH Doctors have all of the medical data at their disposal to provide an accurate diagnosis and provide a treatment that fits your needs as a patient. If you've felt your body slowing down, combined with changes in your sleeping habits, weight gain, issues with healing, or increased incidence of illness, we encourage you to fill out the form on this page and arrange for an appointment with our HRT Affiliate.
Fayetteville North Carolina Sermorelin Acetate HGH Deficiency Therapy
There is another option for patients with Hypopituitarism that is becoming more popular every year, and that option is Sermorelin Injections. Sermorelin is the clinical derivative of a naturally produced hormone called GH-RH, which is released by the Hypothalamus and encourages optimal production of Human Growth Hormone by the Somatotrophs of the Pituitary Gland. Because Sermorelin is an HGH Precursor, just like GH-RH, increased Growth Hormone Levels are the direct result of increased Pituitary activity, rather than of exogenous HGH delivered subcutaneously.
If you are interested in learning more about the differences between Sermorelin and Human Growth Hormone and how they pertain to your potential treatment, our friendly and knowedgeable Hormone Specialists can explain your options to you in detail.

There are two universities based in Fayetteville: Methodist University and Fayetteville State University. Neighborhoods in Fayetteville include Haymount, Arran Lakes, Stoney Point, and Lafayetteville Village.
Fayetteville North Carolina Economy
Obviously, the Fort is the primary source of employment and revenue in Fayetteville, but there are several other major players in the city's economy. Health and Education are major market segments, and the Cape Fear Valley Health System is the largest healthcare provider. The city and county government also offer thousands of jobs. The largest manufacturing employer in the city is Goodyear Tire, and the largest consumer goods retailer is Wal-Mart.
Though these are the largest employers, the area is also a hotbed for defense contractors. Major contractors have operations in the Fayetteville area, such as L-3 Communications, General Dynamics, Boeing, and Lockheed Martin.

All About Fayetteville, North Carolina Geographic Area
Fayetteville is a city in Cumberland County, North Carolina, United States. It is the county seat of Cumberland County, and is best known as the home of Fort Bragg, a major U.S. Army installation northwest of the city.
Fayetteville has received the prestigious All-America City Award from the National Civic League three times, more than any other city. According to the 2011 United States Census estimate, the city has a population of 205,678. It currently ranks as the sixth-largest municipality in North Carolina. Fayetteville is in the Sandhills in the western part of the Coastal Plain region, on the Cape Fear River.
With an estimated population of 374,157, the Fayetteville metropolitan area is the largest in southeastern North Carolina, and the fifth-largest in the state. Suburban areas of metro Fayetteville include Fort Bragg, Hope Mills, Spring Lake, Raeford, Pope Army Airfield, Rockfish, Stedman, and Eastover. Fayetteville's current mayor is Tony Chavonne, who is serving his fourth term.
The area of present-day Fayetteville was historically inhabited by various Siouan Native American peoples, such as the Eno, Shakori, Waccamaw, Keyauwee, and Cape Fear Indians. They followed successive cultures of other indigenous peoples in the area for more than 12,000 years.
After the violent upheavals of the Yamasee War and Tuscarora Wars during the second decade of the 18th century, the North Carolina colony encouraged English settlement along the upper Cape Fear River, the only navigable waterway entirely within the state. Two inland settlements, Cross Creek and Campbellton, were established by Scots from Campbellton, Argyll and Bute, Scotland.
Merchants in Wilmington wanted a town on the Cape Fear River to secure trade with the frontier country. They were afraid people would use the Pee Dee River and transport their goods to Charleston, South Carolina. The merchants bought land from Newberry in Cross Creek. Campbellton became a place where poor whites and free blacks lived, and gained a reputation for lawlessness.
After the American Revolutionary War, the two towns were united and renamed to honor General La Fayette, a French military hero who significantly aided the American Army during the war. Fayetteville was the first city to be named in his honor in the United States. Lafayette visited the city in 1825 during his grand tour of the United States.
The Highland Scots, recent immigrants, tended to be loyal to the British government. But the area also included a number of active Patriots.
In late June 1775, residents drew up the "Liberty Point Resolves," which preceded the Declaration of Independence by a little more than a year. It said,
"This obligation to continue in full force until a reconciliation shall take place between Great Britain and America, upon constitutional principles, an event we most ardently desire; and we will hold all those persons inimical to the liberty of the colonies, who shall refuse to subscribe to this Association; and we will in all things follow the advice of our General Committee respecting the purposes aforesaid, the preservation of peace and good order, and the safety of individual and private property."
Robert Rowan, who apparently organized the group, signed first.
Robert Rowan (circa 1738–1798) was one of the area's leading public figures of the 18th century. A merchant and entrepreneur, he settled in Cross Creek in the 1760s. He served as an officer in the French and Indian War, as sheriff, justice and legislator, and as a leader of the Patriot cause in the Revolutionary War. Rowan Street and Rowan Park in Fayetteville and a local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution are named for him, though Rowan County (founded in 1753) was named for his uncle, Matthew Rowan.
Flora MacDonald (1722–1790), a Scots Highland woman known for aiding Bonnie Prince Charlie after his Highlander army's defeat at Culloden in 1746, lived in North Carolina for about five years.
Seventy-First Township in western Cumberland County (now a part of Fayetteville) is named for a British unit during the American Revolution – the 71st Regiment of Foot or 'Fraser's Highlanders,' as they were first called.
Fayetteville had what is sometimes called its "golden decade" during the 1780s. It was the site in 1789 for the state convention that ratified the U.S. Constitution and the General Assembly session that chartered the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, America's oldest public university. Fayetteville lost out to the future city of Raleigh in the bid to become the permanent state capital.
In 1793, the Fayetteville Independent Light Infantry formed and is still active as a ceremonial unit. It is the second-oldest militia unit in the country.
Henry Evans (circa 1760–1810), a free black preacher, is locally known as the "Father of Methodism" in the area. Evans was a shoemaker by trade and a licensed Methodist preacher. He met opposition from whites when he began preaching to slaves in Fayetteville, but he later attracted whites to his services. He is credited with building the first church in town, called the African Meeting House, in 1796. Evans Metropolitan AME Zion Church is named in his honor.
Fayetteville had 3,500 residents in 1820, but Cumberland County's population still ranked as the second-most urban in the state behind New Hanover County (Wilmington). Its "Great Fire" of 1831 was believed to be one of the worst in the nation's history, although no lives were lost. Hundreds of homes and businesses and most of the best-known public buildings were lost, including the old "State House." Fayetteville leaders moved quickly to help the victims and rebuild the town.
The Market House, completed in 1832, became the center of commerce and celebration. The structure was built on the ruins of the old State House. It was a town market until 1906. It served as Fayetteville Town Hall until 1907. The City Council is considering adapting the Market House into a local history museum.
In March 1865, Gen. William T. Sherman and his 60,000-man army attacked Fayetteville and destroyed the Confederate arsenal. Sherman's troops also destroyed foundries and cotton factories, and the offices of The Fayetteville Observer. Not far from Fayetteville, Confederate and Union troops engaged in the last cavalry battle of the Civil War, the Battle of Monroe's Crossroads.
Downtown Fayetteville was the site of a skirmish, as Confederate Lt. Gen. Wade Hampton and his men surprised a cavalry patrol, killing 11 Union soldiers and capturing a dozen on March 11, 1865.
In the late nineteenth century, Fayetteville whites adopted Jim Crow and state laws to impose racial segregation. Despite their constitutional rights, blacks were disfranchised under a new state constitution, a condition that persisted for more than sixty years, until federal civil rights legislation of the mid-1960s.
Cumberland County's population exploded in the post-World War II years, with its 43% increase in the 1960s the largest in any of North Carolina's 100 counties. Construction was fast-paced as shopping developments and suburban subdivisions began to spread outside the Fayetteville city limits toward Fort Bragg and Pope Air Force Base. The Fayetteville and Cumberland County school systems moved toward integration gradually, beginning in the early 1960s; busing brought about wider-scale student integration in the 1970s.
Segregation of public facilities continued. Civil rights marches and sit-ins, with students from Fayetteville State Teachers College (now Fayetteville State University) at the forefront, led to the end of whites-only service at restaurants and segregated seating in theaters. Politics changed. Blacks and women gained office in significant numbers, from the late 1960s and on into the early '80s.
The Vietnam Era was a time of change in the Fayetteville area. Fort Bragg did not send many large units to Vietnam, but from 1966 to 1970, more than 200,000 soldiers trained at the post before leaving for the war. This buildup stimulated area businesses. Anti-war protests in Fayetteville drew national attention because of Fort Bragg, in a city that generally supported the war. Anti-war groups invited the actress and activist Jane Fonda to Fayetteville to participate in three anti-war events. At this time, Fayetteville made headlines after Army doctor Jeffrey R. MacDonald murdered his pregnant wife and two daughters in their Ft. Bragg home in 1970; the book and movie Fatal Vision were based on these events.
To combat the dispersal of suburbanization, Fayetteville has worked to redevelop its downtown through various revitalization projects; it has attracted large commercial and defense companies such as Purolator, General Dynamics and Wal-Mart Stores and Distribution Center. Development of the Airborne & Special Operations Museum, Fayetteville Area Transportation Museum, Fayetteville Linear Park, and Fayetteville Festival Park, which opened in late 2006, have added regional attractions to the center.
In the first decade of the twenty-first century, the towns and rural areas surrounding Fayetteville had rapid growth. Suburbs such as Hope Mills, Raeford and Spring Lake had increases in population.
In 2005, Congress passed the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Act, resulting in several new commands relocating to Fort Bragg. These include the U.S. Army Forces Command and U.S. Army Reserve Command, both of which relocated from Fort McPherson in Atlanta. More than 30,000 people are expected to relocate to the area with associated businesses and families. FORSCOM awards over $300 billion in contracts annually.
Recently, Where To Retire magazine named Fayetteville as one of the best places to retire in the US.
On September 5, 2008, Cumberland County announced it was the “World’s First Sanctuary for Soldiers and Their Families;” it marked major roads with blue and white “Sanctuary” signage. Within the county, soldiers were to be provided with local services, ranging from free childcare to job placement for soldiers’ spouses.
Five hundred volunteers have signed up to watch over military families. They were recruited to offer one-to-one services; member businesses will also offer discounts and preferential treatments. Time Magazine recognized Fayetteville for its support of military families and identified it as "America's Most Pro-Military Town".
Despite Fayetteville's modest ranking as the 106th largest city in the US, with a population of about 204,000, Fayetteville has earned many top awards and recognition as a desirable location, due to it economic and housing growth as well as its reliance on Fort Bragg.
Other honors include:
Fort Bragg and Pope Army Air Field (formerly Pope Air Force Base) are next to the city of Fayetteville. Several U.S. Army airborne units are stationed at Fort Bragg, most prominently the XVIII Airborne Corps HQ, the 82nd Airborne Division, and the United States Army Special Operations Command.
Fort Bragg was the home of the Field Artillery at the onset of World War II. All the Army's artillery units east of the Mississippi River were based at the post, about 5,000 men in all. Soldiers tested the Army's new bantam car, which was soon to be known as the Jeep, although most of the power to move artillery still came from horses and burros. On September 12, 1940, the Army contracted to expand the post, bringing the 9th Infantry Division to Fort Bragg.
Missions at Pope AAF range from providing airlift and close air support to American armed forces, to humanitarian missions flown all over the world. Pope AAF particularly provides air transportation for the 82nd Airborne, among other airborne units on Fort Bragg.
All of Pope AAF's fighter jet squadrons have been relocated to Moody AFB, Georgia. Pope is being turned over to Army control in 2011 and will be called Pope Army Air Field. However, the main entity at Pope at that time will be the Air Force Reserves. The 440th Airlift Wing will handle the majority of Pope Army Airfield's mission. Although they still will have a small amount of active counterpart to get the job done. In January 2011 Pope has officially been turned over to the Army and is conducting operations with the above.
In September 2008, Fayetteville annexed 85% of Ft. Bragg, bringing the official population of the city to 206,000. Ft. Bragg still has its own police, fire, and EMS services. Fayetteville hopes to attract large retail businesses to the area using the new population figures.

Fayetteville is in the Sandhills of North Carolina which are between the coastal plains and Piedmont of North Carolina. The area's sandy soil is evidence of a former coastline that existed approximately 20 million years ago. The city is built on the Cape Fear River, a 202 mile long river that originates in Haywood and empties into the Atlantic Ocean. Carver's Falls, the largest waterfall (measuring at 150 feet wide and 2 stories tall) between the coast and foot hills is also in Fayetteville.

Fort Bragg is the backbone of the county's economy. Fort Bragg and Pope Army Airfield pumps about $4.5 billion a year into the region's economy, making Fayetteville one of the best retail markets in the country. Fayetteville serves as the region's hub for shops, restaurants, services, lodging, health care and entertainment.
