This 'hidden' chemical can sap your manhood
Guys, you know what "right" feels like... and right now, it feels like everything has gone wrong at once.
You've got less energy than a high schooler during exams week. You're gaining weight like a bear heading into hibernation. And your libido seems to have clocked out for a break -- years ago -- and still hasn't returned.
Your doc will tell you all these warning signs of low testosterone are a normal part of aging.
He'll even tell you that you just have to learn to live with it.
But I've got news for him today, my friend: Not only is he WRONG about the cause, he's even MORE wrong when he says you have to live with it!
New research exposes a key reason for that dip in hormone levels, and it's exactly what I've warned my own patients of and worked to correct for years now.
It's not just your age.
While age alone can certainly sap you of those essential hormones, they're also coming under assault from other factors that are completely within your control.
And one major risk factor could be sitting on the little shelf in your shower right now.
Many soaps, shampoos, and other "personal care" products are loaded with a class of chemical preservatives called parabens.
In the new study, guys with the highest levels of parabens in their urine had lower levels of the "manly" hormone testosterone.
The most immediate and obvious effect is visible in a microscope: Men exposed to parabens have abnormal sperm, including sperm that are misshapen, too small, and too slow.
The sperm even had DNA damage!
That's bad news if you're trying to start or extend your family.
But even if you're well beyond those years, that's a warning sign that things are going wrong deep inside your body -- because low testosterone means more than just trouble with fertility.
It leads to the infamous "spare tire" around the stomach... low energy... and troubles with both desire and your ability to "do it."
You can see and feel those symptoms, but low testosterone does something even worse that you can't see or feel: It can increase your risk of heart problems.
Your doctor might tell you to just get used to it... but that's not my advice.
Low testosterone can be reversed with three simple steps.
- First, minimize your exposure to parabens and other hormone-disrupting toxins. You can search online to learn which products are safer.
- Second, you can get your body to produce more testosterone on its own with a mix of weight loss, a little activity, and some natural therapies, such as acetyl L-carnitine and propionyl L-carnitine.
- And third, if you haven't had your hormone levels checked, get tested by a holistic medical doctor. If you're low and can't increase those levels enough on your own, you may be a candidate for safe and effective natural testosterone therapy.
I can run some tests here at the Stengler Center for Integrative Medicine to see if this treatment is right for you.
