Avoid microwaving foods in plastic containers, even when they are labeled as microwave-safe. Research medications. Dr. Eugene R. Shippen, co-author of The Testoster- one Syndrome, states, “High-dose statin drugs used to lower cholesterol definitely lower testosterone levels and are high on the list of causes of erectile dysfunction.” Exercise.

Testosterone Supplements Past incorrect beliefs that testosterone replacement therapy causes prostate cancer left many medical practitioners reluctant to prescribe it.

Thus, such products are not completely recognizable by the body. About 15 years ago, bestselling author and hormone balancing expert Dr. John R.

can cause serious side effects, includ- ing an increased risk of stroke, cancer and liver damage. His findings were subsequently confirmed by the Wom- en’s Health Initiative study. Injections, skin patches and pills subject the body to unnatural fluctuations in testoster- one and estrogen. In contrast, skin creams permit precise daily or periodic dosing as prescribed by a qualified health care practitioner.

As they age, some men strongly feel the effects of a cumulative decline in testosterone levels and experience significant symptoms, while others barely notice it. Restoring testosterone to its biological norm can be rewarding. Remember that hormones are powerful and a little can go a long way. Beyond a prescribed amount, more is not better and can reverse benefits.
