  • Are you suffering from low T?
  • Why hormone replacement therapy isn’t your best option
  • Here’s how to put the tiger back into your tank

If you’re running low on testosterone, you probably feel like your “get up and go got up and went” – in more ways than one!

Not only is it likely that your bedroom activities are failing, but you may also be experiencing feelings of aimlessness, loss of energy and a general dissatisfaction with life. Tack on an expanding waistline, decreased muscle mass and the development of breast tissue… Well, any man would feel miserable.

This makes the idea of turning to testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) very appealing. In fact the appeal is so great that, over a single decade, testosterone prescriptions here in the U.S. increased 10 times over.

Believe me, I get it. Watch the commercials and it’s easy to imagine that after a month or two of treatment you’ll be the talk of the town – energetic, sexy and healthier looking than you’ve been in years.

But before you turn to synthetic testosterone treatments in an effort to put the tiger back in your tank, there are a few things you should be aware of. Continue reading

•    It’s not testosterone that causes men to go bald
•    Hair loss and prostate problems go hand-in-hand
•    What’s good for your prostate is good for your hair

One of the most frustrating aspects of male aging is hair loss. And this is a problem that doesn’t wait for old age. In fact, about two-thirds of men between the ages of 30 and 50 are already experiencing male pattern hair loss. Some are even younger.

Now, when men come into my office with this condition, there are several common misconceptions.

Some have heard that that clogged hair follicles are to blame. Others have heard just the opposite, that regular shampooing causes their hair to fall out. (If either of these were true, you could grow new hair just by washing your hair more or less often!) Continue reading

  • What’s robbing you of your manhood?
  • Why all men should be concerned about estrogens
  • Easiest way to get rid of testosterone-zapping estrogen

As men age two things happen. Well, more than two but today the two we’re going to talk about are that testosterone levels decline and estrogen levels rise.

Now, you hear plenty about testosterone. After all, it’s the “manly” hormone. Every man on earth wants more of it.

What men don’t hear nearly enough about are estrogens. And these days, they’re a real problem when it comes to maintaining your virility. Continue reading

  • Men: Are these chemicals castrating you?
  • Place yourself in the driver’s seat
  • … And get your T on!

As we men age, our testosterone levels take a beating.

It starts in our mid-30s. That’s when production of this manly hormone begins to decline. But something else happens, too. Every day we’re exposed to toxins that mimic estrogen. These chemicals increase our estrogen stores, while decreasing testosterone even further. Continue reading

Men: Don’t Let This Rogue Hormone Hijack Your “T”

  • Why testosterone problems plague men
  • Don’t let this female hormone dominate your body
  • Look and feel like a real man again

We men didn’t have it easy in our younger years.

In our teens, testosterone made our lives miserable. Our siblings and school friends made fun of us when hair sprouted under our arms and on our chests. Even worse, it’s what made our voices squeak intermittently and sent our nether regions standing at full attention when we least expected it. Continue reading

  • Can you fix this plumbing problem?
  • Don’t buy into this form of chemical castration
  • 5 natural herbs for a stronger urine flow

We men have a serious plumbing problem. Our urine comes out of a urethra that’s just about the width of a toothpick.

That’s not a lot of space to pass huge amounts of liquid through, but it seems to work well enough… until you have an enlarged prostate. Then it can become a pretty serious problem. And it’s one most men don’t know how to fix. Continue reading
