Back in 2000 I experienced many of the signs and symptoms of andropause, i.e., my sex drive was low; my mood was poor; my zeal for life was so non-existent ... Learn more.

For several years now, my great interest has been hormone levels and how to fine-tune their balancing act. What I've learned over the years has benefited not only myself, but also my customers. I've been candid with my studies and personal experiences along the way but less well-known is that I began my investigation into hormonal balancing for personal reasons.

I'm now 35 years old with the hormonal profile of a healthy eighteen-year-old. My mood is upbeat; my experience of life intense, my training gains are solid and my sex drive is optimal. I'm not boasting; I tell you this because what I learned--and recommend--works. It works for me and will work for you as well. It took many years of private research and testing to get where I am now but not too long ago things were much different for me.

Back in 2000 I experienced many of the signs and symptoms of andropause, i.e., my sex drive was low; my mood was poor; my zeal for life was so non-existent that I was (allegedly) spotted watching a Sex in the City marathon--just kidding!

Fortunately, my estrogen levels have never been that high! Both undesirable--and avoidable--andropause is all the same considered normal for men in their fifties. But I was only twenty-eight! Unfortunately, I was far from alone: I have many chronologically young male and female clients whose hormone levels would be unhealthy for men and women in their fifties. Epidemiologically, this problem is becoming more widespread for reasons beyond the scope of this article.

Eventually, I got tired of being tired and decided to take charge of my health and my life. It was a frustrating start as I realized how few health professionals genuinely understood hormone optimization.

The advice I received was generally trivial--and in some cases irrational and dangerous. Most "experts" offered to sugar coat my symptoms rather than determine any root causes. The more I talked to these "experts" the more I realized I needed to resolve this problem on my own.

Handling Stress

Denying stress and running on adrenaline (which is what I'd been doing) will only get you so far. Eventually, you'll crash, and when you crash, you'll burn.

Make no mistake, the stress hormone, cortisol, must be within reasonable range to optimize your hormones and thus feel great. Keep this in mind: too little cortisol is just as bad--if not worse--than too much cortisol.
