Natural, Simple Ways to Improve Your Sleeping Habits


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on March 16th, 2019

cannot sleep 300x200One of the most common causes of Testosterone Deficiency in men that have not yet experienced Andropause is poor sleeping habits. For your body to produce the testosterone that it needs to amplify your day-to-day health, you need 7-9 hours of restful sleep per night, but too many men don't get enough. Across the United States, there are nine million men and women that take prescription medications to help them sleep. Healthy sleep is also necessary for your body to adequately produce Human Growth Hormone, which is produced primarily during sleep and helps to promote cellular metabolism and healing processes. Unfortunately, often, these sleeping pills produce side-effects in many patients, and for many, the products are not useful. Because of the potential risks associated with many sleep aids, including the potential risk for abuse, many health professionals feel that these medications should only be used short-term, to help restore healthier sleeping habits. Of course, even if you aren't interested in using a prescription treatment, you should still see a medical professional if you are experiencing a significant sleep disorder, such as insomnia. There are a lot of ways to effectively treat such conditions without turning to pills or other prescription … Read more »

The Pros and Cons of Available Low-T Treatments Currently, there are some useful forms of Testosterone Therapy, all of which have minor drawbacks which may affect your preference. The most straightforward example is with Testosterone Injections. Low-T Shots are very active, and only require administration once every 10 or more days, but many people have an issue with needles. Testosterone creams are simple to apply, but they leave a residue which has the potential for contamination risk. It can also wash off if exposed to water too soon. Testosterone Patches work well but are also not very water resistant, and you have to deal with a visible patch. There is another form of Testosterone that avoids all of these issues, which makes it a valuable addition to the arsenal of Quality Testosterone Therapy Products — … Read more »

Five Facts About Testosterone (That Maybe You Didn’t Know)


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on March 16th, 2019

635890364616719981 2043523324 always tired 300x199 4571Have you been a bit moody lately? Always feeling fatigued? Lacking motivation? Depressed about your lack of sex drive, or inability to perform in the bedroom? Then Maybe That Dreaded “Low-T” Syndrome has Struck Face reality. It may be time to have your testosterone checked. Similar to how vital estrogen is for a woman, an adequate level of testosterone is just as crucial to a man. Testosterone is primarily a male hormone, and men have significantly higher levels of testosterone flowing through their veins than women. When those levels drop (usually due to aging), men feel it, and it's devastating in all critical areas of a man's life: physically, mentally, and emotionally. Here are five things you need to know that will allow you to understand better how this masculine hormone functions, and why you may need to have your testosterone levels checked... Low testosterone is not just a concern of aging men. While it is true that levels begin to decline after about 25-30 years old, low levels can occur at any age. Men in their early 20s and 30s can be at risk for low concentrations, especially if they have type 1 or type 2 diabetes, autoimmune diseases, … Read more »

Testosterone’s Surprising Link to Men’s ‘Love Hormone’ Oxytocin

It fuels the drive of hunters, athletes, traders in the financial markets and other so-called “Alpha males.” And regardless of their differences, they all tend to have one thing in common: they are all ultra-competitive and possess an almost superhuman drive to succeed. As a result of this drive, their testosterone levels are off-the-charts, primarily when they are engaged in the high-level competition of their brutally Darwinist fields. But There is Another Side to This Story The Chinese call it Yin/Yang. In Viking times, it was called Fire/Ice. The ancient Greeks called it “The Golden Mean.” Regardless of the name, the fundamental concept remains the same today: balance, including mental, physical and emotional aspects, is something that we all need, and strive for, at times unconsciously. And it is just as relevant today as it was thousands of years ago. Fascinating New Research A new study explores the nurturing, familial side of men who pursue primal activities, often to support their families. It finds that that side, too, is expressed hormonally, when a man brings dinner home to his family (or perhaps money or a trophy). … Read more »

More Sex: A Better Way to Boost Your Testosterone Levels


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on March 15th, 2019

man and woman enjoying sex 300x200 7599Contrary to popular belief, study suggests the relationship between the two works the other way FRIDAY, March 13, 2015 (HealthDay News) -- Experts have long assumed that as a man's testosterone level drops, so does his sex life. But a new study suggests the reverse may be right. "Most people in or out of medicine assume that a lowered serum testosterone may cause reduced sexual activity. But our study questions, if not entirely refutes, that assumption and suggests it is the other way around," said Dr. David Handelsman, a researcher at the University of Sydney, in New South Wales, Australia. And skyrocketing sales of testosterone supplements are being fueled by that widespread assumption, even though it might not be correct, Handelsman added. For example, one doctor not involved in the study questioned the finding, noting that other lifestyle factors might be affecting testosterone levels as men age. And the study wasn't designed to take those factors into account. In the study, the researchers evaluated more than 1,700 men, age 70 and above, in Sydney. The researchers tested the men at the study's start and then again two years later when the number of men in the survey had dropped to … Read more »

Testosterone Replacement Therapy Boosts Aerobic Capacity


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on March 15th, 2019

shutterstock 284222600 200x300 8750The joint meeting of the International Society of Endocrinology and the Endocrine Society was the site of a presentation on June 22 concerning findings discovered from a clinical trial of sedentary men with low testosterone levels and mobility problems which revealed increased aerobic capacity among those treated with testosterone. The current study evaluated data from 64 men, mean age 73, with low testosterone enrolled in the Testosterone in Older Men with Mobility Limitation Trial. Participants in the trial were treated with 10 milligrams of testosterone in gel form or a placebo gel daily for six months. Cycle exercise tests conducted at the beginning and end of the treatment period provided measures of aerobic function, including peak oxygen uptake and gas exchange lactate threshold. The gas exchange lactate threshold is an excellent functional measure of the ability to do work over a prolonged period. The rate remained steady during the 6-month study in the testosterone-treated men but declined significantly (and to a greater-than-expected extent based on average measures) in the placebo-treated controls When the trial ended, men who received a placebo saw a drop in peak oxygen uptake, while those treated with testosterone saw an increase in their peak oxygen uptake. … Read more »

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) Reduces the Risk of Serious Adverse Health Consequences!


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on March 15th, 2019

shutterstock 122597959 300x200 9345The evidence is clear: A recent study has concluded that... Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) reduces the risk of severe adverse health consequences! Are you thinking of trying testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), but have held back due to the fear of side effects? Think again. A recent study published in The Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology concluded that testosterone therapy lowered the risks of cardiovascular disease and mortality. Also, the researchers discovered healthier levels of blood pressure, glucose, and lipids. “Testosterone therapy has been shown to reduce the risk of myocardial infarction (i.e., heart attack), stroke, and mortality in men with hypogonadism,” said Abdulmaged M. Traish, Ph.D., who conducted the study with several colleagues. The objective of the survey was to determine and measure the risk, safety, and benefits of testosterone replacement therapy concerning cardiovascular outcomes. This objective required a long, placebo-controlled study of two groups of men. One group began TRT, and the other group did not. The study was conducted with 656 male subjects suffering from low testosterone levels and displaying symptoms of hypogonadism (low testosterone). The study group consisted of men with total testosterone levels of 12.1 nmol/L and symptoms of hypogonadism. In the treatment group, men (n = … Read more »

Too much testosterone makes for bad decisions, tests show – Testosterone Prescription


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on February 27th, 2019

personal decision tree 300x214It can happen in jury deliberations and local groups, in Dáil committees and company boardrooms. Too much testosterone can thwart good decision-making. People have long blamed the male hormone for the damaging group dynamic, and now University College London researchers have proven this to be true. Toss in some excess testosterone and co-operation tends to go out the window. Dr. Mark Wright and colleagues at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging at UCL tested the impact of testosterone on the levels of co-operative decision-making accomplished by groups. They publish their findings this morning in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B. Other experiments had already shown that subjects given the female hormone oxytocin tended to be more co-operative. The university team wanted to see whether testosterone could produce the opposite effect, Dr. Wright said. Men already have high levels of the hormone and if extra is given it will quickly be broken down. For this reason, only women were used as subjects, Dr. Wright said. Supplements were given to elevate their testosterone levels temporarily, and the women conducted a series of tests to measure levels of co-operation. Dr. Wright used 17 pairs of female volunteers who were asked to … Read more »

With testosterone, it’s ‘my way or the highway’: UK study – Testosterone Prescription


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on February 27th, 2019

my way or the highway testosterone 300x200Testosterone can skew one's judgment, creating the impression that decisions are best taken alone even in situations that call for collaboration, according to a study released Wednesday. In a smart set of experiments, scientists led by Nicholas Wright at the University of London showed that women given a dose of testosterone become less inclined to act in concert even when it was apparently in their interest to do so. Finding the right balance between working together and going solo, and knowing when to do one or the other, is an essential life skill. In some circumstances, joining forces with others is the best way to achieve the desired result: that's why lions and hyenas hunt in packs, and why humans cooperate on the playing field, in the laboratory, or in battle. Sometimes, however, decisive individual action is needed to break free of group-think or to come out ahead of the game. To a significant extent, our ability to navigate between these two extremes is acquired through learning and experience, but some of these impulses are hardwired too. Earlier research, for example, on the biological underpinnings of group decision making revealed that a naturally-occurring hormone, oxytocin, promotes the urge to work … Read more »

The Secret to Guys’ Sex Appeal: Low Stress, High Testosterone, Strong Immunity – Testosterone Prescription


Written by Dr. Michael White, Published on February 27th, 2019

chiseled jaw women turn on 300x200  Washboard abs and a chiseled jaw are a draw, but a recent study suggests it may be a man's healthy immune system that turns women on. That makes sense since a robust immune system signifies a healthy guy - one who's likely to survive long enough to pass his rugged genes to the next generation. But the more surprising thing is that women can spot good immunity by looking at a guy's face. The critical factor may be testosterone, the male hormone that has been associated with a man's healthy, good looks. According to a study published in the journal Nature Communications, testosterone levels are not only linked with facial attractiveness but also with a robust immune system response. MORE: Why Fathers Have Lower Levels of Testosterone To figure out the complicated relationship between hormones and hotness, researchers from Abertay University in the U.K. studied 74 Latvian men in their early 20s. They gave the men a Hepatitis B vaccine, which triggers the immune system to produce antibodies to fight the virus, and took blood samples before and after. Using the blood samples, researchers measured the men's antibody levels, as well as levels of testosterone and the stress hormone … Read more »
