About TYI

The Youth Institute – The Beginnings

“We do not become conscious of the three greatest blessings of life, such as health, youth, and freedom, as long as we possess them, but only after we have lost them.”

Arthur Schopenhauer

Medical Director and Founder of The Youth Institute, Dr. Greg Brannon will quickly share with anyone that his guiding principles are liberty and freedom.  These are not just buzzwords – Dr. Brannon believes in these concepts all the way. He is a firm believer in the constitutional government which allows us the freedoms that many other countries do not. This freedom, he feels, extends to our health as well – and how we may choose to exercise those freedoms. Everyone should have the right to choose their own path for healthcare and health choices.

That said, many people are not aware of bio-identical hormones or their usage.  Dr. Brannon was introduced to this type of therapy about 10 years ago. He dismissed the BHRT concepts based on his years of experience and training through a more “mainstream” medical community.  As Dr. Brannon watched his friend’s health and life improve, he was motivated to learn more.  And learn more he did! When his own research was done, not only did he embrace those concepts, but also became a patient.

Shortly thereafter, the concepts and idea that would grow into The Youth Institute were formed. The Youth Institute was officially kicked off in 2012 in Cary North Carolina. To date, they have treated well over three thousand patients – both men and women. Patient ages range from 18 to 86.

Youth Institute Purpose

The Youth Institute is dedicated to allowing men and women of all ages to experience the freedom of improved health. When one thinks about it, many times the biggest limiting factors in many situations are medical issues. When people can’t walk easily, they have to modify their living arrangements. They will avoid stairs or anything that requires a long walk. People with diabetes are often tied to their daily medications – as are many with OTHER chronic ailments. Anything that allows one to enjoy their life for more years without the hindrance of ongoing medical problems is freedom in itself. Dr. Brannon is the first to embrace this kind of freedom.

BHRT is the kind of treatment that allows people to continue living healthy for more years.  The additional Wellness area of our website also provides information that gives visitors and patients further guidance into areas beyond bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. From healthier eating to vitamin supplements and so many other areas, Dr. Brannon and The Youth Institute provide a lot of information freely.

While the treatment has been popular in other areas of the country for years, the Raleigh Triangle area has not seen the explosion that many other areas have already experienced. A lot of people out there still do not know about the scope of the BHRT therapies and how they can be used to extend someone’s health well beyond what they have been conditioned to expect.



The Youth Institute in North Carolina

The Youth Institute continues to expand across North Carolina. There are currently as of this writing, three locations including the original Raleigh Triangle / Cary location, Souther Pines NC, Charlotte NC, and Wilmington NC.
