Hey Dad, no energy, or vitality? Could your motivation use a little tune-up? Muscles shrinking? Sleeping more than you used to? Libido not what it used to be? Feeling grumpy? Think you’re just aging? And you sure don’t want to talk about it! But could this be due to Andropause – lower levels of testosterone?
The answer is very likely yes, and there are natural, non-drug solutions that can help right now.
It’s well documented in literature that almost every disease drives testosterone down. Testosterone is anti-inflammatory, it’s rebuilding, it’s anabolic, it’s good for insulin. It’s good for maintaining all the things that get suppressed in most common diseases.
You wouldn’t let you car run without oil, water, clear air filters and the right octane gas. You wouldn’t dream of not getting that precious vehicle in for it‘s 50K mile check-up. Without this, it gets sluggish and will breakdown. You know for sure that baby will run like a dream if it’s well maintained.
The same thing holds true for you!
A natural part of aging is losing cells – we can’t stop aging, but we can certainly reverse the loss or decline of cellular dysfunction due to deficiency, and we can maintain optimum function through the aging process. Loss of testosterone is often due to deficiencies that you can replace.
High stress lifestyles, overwork, environmental pollution, contaminated water and food supplies, including the damage that has been done to the soil that grows our food take their toll on our bodies. This often makes it necessary to supplement with additional nutrition to make up for the poor-quality air, food and water we now ingest.
The biggest complaint we hear is lack of energy – that’s pervasive – it’s energy for life, energy for the things one used to like to do. It’s energy in your brain to think clearly and be positively motivated. It’s energy for an upbeat mood and for getting the most out of life.
And it hits every part of the body because there are androgen (male hormone) receptors and estrogen receipts in every tissue. So your muscles are weaker, your joints are achier, your brain is not as sharp, your cardiovascular system is not as responsive, you’re more breathless at tasks that didn’t used to make you breathless. If any of this sounds familiar to you, the solution may be easier than you think.
A simple test (saliva or urine) will provide the health care practitioner with your hormone levels. A body system evaluation will be conducted during your initial visit to determine if any other body systems need support. Just like that 50K tune-up, you may need your “transmission flushed”. A personalized program designed just for you will get any deficiencies replaced and your energy levels soaring.
