MANopause – Male Hormones After 40 (#112)

2019-10-02T14:52:14-06:00

  There is a documented epidemic of low testosterone (T) in males, even young males. Insufficient T is not only linked to erectile dysfunction, it is being reproducibly linked to dying prematurely (losing a few years off your life) from diverse causes, referred to as all-cause mortality. Sufficient levels of T, often higher than the lower end of most lab reference ranges, prevents a long list of serious illnesses such as cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, and Type-2 Diabetes. One of the first symptoms of insufficient T is low energy. This is because testosterone protects mitochondria, the energy production [...]

What’s in your chicken? How non-organic chicken contributes to hormonal issues like polycystic ovarian syndrome, breast cancer and more!

2019-02-05T13:14:26-06:00

What’s in your chicken? How non-organic chicken is contributing to hormonal issues like polycystic ovarian syndrome, breast cancer and more. So you’re trying to eat less red meat, and in doing so you are eating more chicken. You eat out often, so you order salads with chicken, or chicken and veggies, and you think that you’re doing good things for your body and health. You may get lunch several times a week at Whole Foods. You assume the chicken at the salad bar is completely healthy, because, hey, it’s Whole Foods! Think again! You are what you eat. Chickens are what [...]

Jack Monaco MD – Confessions of a gynecologist gone hormonal, not postal (#68)

2019-07-30T08:09:05-06:00

        We think if we have hormonal problems, we sensibly need to see an endocrinologist or gynecologist. But it turns out, today, that not many people, even doctors, get hormones right. Dr. Monaco explains this stunning reality in medicine, in-depth. Very few doctors have been trained in how to assess for hormonal imbalances, how to treat, how long to treat, and to appreciate the emerging broad swath of hormonal protective actions that occur all throughout the human body. Too many doctors practice extremely antiquated medicine, especially in terms of the world of hormone therapies. Hormones are not just [...]

10 Reasons Younger Men Have Less Healthy Testosterone by Berkson

2019-04-03T10:08:14-06:00

Too many young men, in their 20's and up, can have a gorgeous woman stand right in front of them, but the dashboards on their physiology blink warning, system break down. What’s up with that? Younger males are seeking out erectile dysfunction clinics. Younger males are being diagnosed with hypogonadism in which the body doesn’t make adequate testosterone or use it properly. There is a growing appreciation that T signals are sputtering. Testosterone is a major sex steroid signaling system that promotes diverse functions in both males and females. In both genders it is well known for it’s sexual actions such [...]

Testosterone Replacement is Safe For Men (yet another study showing “protection” not harm)

2019-02-13T11:30:10-06:00

We are seeing more studies showing that hormone replacement in BOTH men and women, is not only safe, but also protective. A new scientific study demonstrates that testosterone therapy in generally healthy men (to normalize their T blood levels closer to more youthful levels) is NOT harmful and even safer than NOT taking it. This is the point that integrative doctors have been trying to share with the public and have been seeing with their patient populations on hormone replacement for the last 50 years. Taking hormone replacement, based on testing and individual need and response, is usually safer, than not [...]

Testosterone is not just for men; maleness protects femaleness

2019-02-14T13:08:03-06:00

How does estriol relate to testosterone and how do they protect women?  Estriol is a forgotten estrogen. We mostly think of estrogen as estradiol. But there are 60 different estrogen-acting molecules in the female body. One is estriol. And it protects women. It is a tumor suppressor agent. It is also an anti-inflammatory agent. Women produce large amounts of estriol when they are pregnant. It protects a soon to be mother’s body from the potential inflammation of now growing a new being. Many women with inflammatory diseases like inflammatory gut issues or joint issues, have these go into remission when pregnant, [...]

Testosterone Fears Unjustified

2019-02-14T12:48:20-06:00

Defending Testosterone, Debunking the Myths. This is the name of an article that came out June 4, 2015, in Medscape, by Abraham Morgentaler MD, a physician and researcher looking at testosterone every which way for decades. Dr. Morgentaler says that the effects of low testosterone called "hypogonadism" or "low T" and the benefits of treatment with T has been widely practiced for many years since testosterone replacement was first synthesized in 1935.  But controversy has surrounded T therapy all these years. This shadow of murk over T replacement was based on a single report, later shown to be unreliable, that testosterone [...]
