Testosterone Therapy for men 

One of the most common hormonal imbalance issues in men is low testosterone. While a normal testosterone level is certainly necessary for a healthy sex drive, maintaining a healthy level of testosterone is essential for continued, holistic wellbeing in men.

There are a number of reasons that men may start to experience reduced levels of testosterone, but the most common factor is age. Roughly 40% of men over the age of 40 experience low levels of testosterone and that percentage only goes up as age increases. Luckily, we can reverse the effects of age-related hormone decline and get you back to feeling great!

WHAT’S TESTOSTERONE AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

Testosterone is vital to the health of men’s development. Testosterone assists in creating muscle mass and strong bones that help support internal organs. And, most notably, is necessary for sperm development in men and controls sexual drive and sexual performance of men, which is directly related to your testosterone level.

Causes of Low T?

  • Processed refined sugar – increases insulin levels which is a testosterone inhibitor.

  • Soy – Contains Phytoestrogens that throw off natural hormone production and conversion, according to the National Center of Biotechnology information (NCBI), researchers have found that 95% of men who consumed as little as 120 mg of soy a day had a decrease in testosterone. Soy is common in many food products including ones that are not labeled ‘soy.’

  • Stress – Harvard Researchers have found a link between mental, emotional and physical stress depleting the body of water soluble nutrients including amino acids which are hormone building blocks.  Stress can slow down digestion which affects nutrient absorption which can affect the adrenal and reproductive systems and in turn directly affect sex drive and performance.

  • Xeno-estrogens – Another study done by the National Center of Biotechnology (NCBI) concludes that estrogen mimicking compounds similar to soy, throw off natural testicular hormone production. This includes safflower oil, cottonseed oil, canola oil, commercially raised animal meat and dairy products (preservatives and injected hormones), non-organic coffee (commonly sprayed with pesticides), unfiltered water/tap water, commercial laundry detergents and fabric softeners, shampoos, conditioner, soaps and lotions containing parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, BPA (plastic) and several different types of insecticides and weed killer.
