Attention guys: Don’t let this “secret disease” WRECK your bones
It’s not supposed to be a “guy” problem.
Weak and brittle bones… especially osteoporosis… are supposed to be a “women’s disease” – or at least that’s what you’ve heard.
But MILLIONS of older men are silently suffering from weaker bones, and many are even facing the risk of osteoporosis.
And guess what?
While the disease IS more common in women… it’s often far WORSE in men when it does strike.
Men with weaker bones have a higher risk of falling than women, and a higher risk of injury – including severe and devastating bone breaks.
Now, the latest research reveals WHY.
More importantly, it shows HOW to turn that risk around, reverse bone loss, protect yourself from falls, stop fractures, and keep STRONG even as you get older.
The secret is in your hormones… specifically, testosterone.
Just as low estrogen can lead to weaker bone and a higher risk of osteoporosis in women, low testosterone can have the same effect in men.
But because testosterone is also essential to muscle, guys get hit with a double whammy...
They have weaker bone, making it more likely to break. And weaker muscle, making them more likely to stumble and fall, further increasing the risks of those breaks.
Of course, the mainstream has been pushing its bone drugs on women, and Big Pharma is anxious to bring men into the picture to expand that market.
The problem is, those drugs don’t solve the problem.
In fact, they can do the opposite! In some cases, these drugs make bone weaker and more brittle – which is why long-term use can INCREASE the risk of breaks and fractures.
Natural hormone therapy gets right to the heart of the matter, attacking the cause more directly.
It can ENHANCE muscle, so you’re stronger and less likely to fall in the first place.
And it can help STRENGTHEN your bone, so you’re less likely to suffer one of those painful and potentially crippling breaks.
Boosting your hormone intake can also do something even more important for older guys...
In one study, it cut the risk of serious heart problems by a THIRD.
It can also lift your mood, restore energy and get things cooking in the bedroom again.
In some cases, you may not even need actual hormone treatments. Natural therapies, including herbal medicine, can stimulate your body into producing the hormone BY ITSELF.
A little weight loss won’t hurt, either.
If that doesn’t work, then you may need natural hormone therapy in the care of a skilled holistic medical doctor.
