Rectal DHEA

The best way to apply DHEA is into the rectum.

I recently learned about this new application method and I’m
pretty excited it.

Because it puts DHEA back on the table.

And this could be a big game changer for men over the age
of 30.


If you haven’t hit 30 yet. You should pass on this because
your DHEA levels are probably fine.

But us older guys with low levels may have have another
tool to play around with here.

We just have to make sure we get it right.

Up until now I’ve been afraid to mess with DHEA…

Because oral supplements can cause all kinds of problems.

But rectal dosing solves these issues. IF……. your DHEA
levels are low to begin with.

So how do you find out if they are?

The best way is to get a DHEA test and I highly suggest you
do this.

Mercola recommends blood testing, but I believe saliva is much

So go that route if you have the option (my opinion).

I didn’t get tested myself but I’m the guinea pig of this group,
so it’s my job to do these things.

Here’s how I verified that I really needed it…

I payed attention to my sleep cycles on the days I dosed.

And when I started sleeping like a newborn baby at night I
knew I was on the right track.

My moods were also better when I woke up. And I definitely
had more sex drive and stronger erections.

On the other hand…

If the quality of my sleep had declined….

I didn’t feel better when I woke up. And I didn’t have more
sex drive and stronger erections…

The experiment would have stopped.

So keep these points in mind if you decide to try this.

I can’t recommend dosages but I will tell you what worked
for me….

One pump applied rectally. Once a week.

Yup, I’m cycling this just like I do almost everything else.


Because I don’t want to become dependent on this cream.

I want to use it intelligently to enhance my life. Without paying
any penalties.

So I dose up once a week for a very nice hormonal kick.

Then I put it away for 7 days.

One final thing…

Men produce that vast majority of their DHEA in the morning…

So I suggest you apply the cream as soon as you wake up.

Getting it where it belongs takes a bit of practice…

But any spillage can just be rubbed into the surrounding skin.

This excess will be absorbed transdermally, so don’t stress
too much about it.

Here’s the product I’m using.

If you do this, make sure you play it smart.

High Vitamin Butter Oil Testosterone

Jon Remington and I are working on a new project…

The theme is maximizing testicle size and function.

So stay tuned for more info on that.

Anyway, because of this new venture I’ve been testing
out a lot of new things….

And since we’ve been pretty serious around here lately…

I thought drop a fun one on you.

Here’s the drill:

Two hours before bed take 5 caps of high vitamin butter

If you’re not using this supplement…

You can substitute 4 raw eggs yolks and a tablespoon
of butter instead.

This will blend up nicely with a ripe banana.

Both of these food items will dose you up with a big shot
of fat soluble A…

AKA the testosterone vitamin.

This will give your testicles plenty of A to work with while
you’re sleeping that night.

One you have this handled…

Take an anti-aromatase supplement or eat a cruciferous
vegetable like broccoli, cabbage or brussels sprouts..

This step will prevent T to E conversion during our experiment.


If you’re not sharing a bed with anyone, edge yourself right to
brink of climax 3 times just before you fall asleep…

But don’t ejaculate.

But if you you do have a warm body to work with – use it

Because your payout will be much bigger.

What you’re going to do is take yourself to the brink 3 times
just like the men who are edging…

But you’re going to use the Stop and Go Method with your
partner instead.

Here’s how to do it:

Penetrate her, but thrust slowly so things don’t move along
too quickly..

Once you get the brink, pull out and put all your focus on her
so the action doesn’t stop entirely…

You’re a big boy, so I’m sure you know what you need to do.

Once you’ve cooled down at bit….

Penetrate her again until you hit the threshold once more.

Then withdraw. And cool down again.

Total repetitions – 3.

Make sure you finish the routine without ejaculating, just like
the men who are edging.

Then fall asleep thinking about all the fun you just had.

Bonus points if you dream about it.

The next morning, wake up and do a size check on your

Trust me, the news will be good.

And one more thing…

If you’re one of the lucky ones who has access to a willing

You can take this up a notch.

When you wake up early the next morning with hard wood
(and you will).

Take the prize again, and display some dominant behavior in
the sack.

Because of all the attention she had the last night, I guarantee
you she’ll be ready.

But when you get to the brink this time, go ahead and ejaculate.

Then jump out of bed quickly and go after your day.

That’s it.

Let me know how this works out for you 🙂

Soy Bean Oil and Testosterone

I went to a dinner party over the weekend…

This was one of my wife’s deals so I didn’t know
a soul there.

But at least I had some good food to look forward

At least I thought I did.

Here’s what I had waiting for me once I arrived…

Pasta with a sickly sweet marinara sauce and a salad
that was sickly sweet too.

It was sort of like cranberry pie with lettuce at the
bottom instead of crust.

There was also a huge basket of bread with a
fake butter garnish.

And off to the side…

Was a big dessert table that would put your local
hometown buffet to shame.

So this was a high carb, low fat situation…

Circa 1989.

There was no meat. And no fat that didn’t come
out of a soy bean.

I remember thinking to myself, do people still eat
like this?

I guess so.

Let me ask you something…

What would you have done in this situation?

Say you’d worked out hard like I did that day…

Done your intermittent fasting so you’d only eaten
one small banana….

And you felt like you were ready to pass out you were
so hungry…

You would have gone face first into the food, right?

Me too.

It was Christmas dinner and Thanksgiving lunch all
wrapped into one.

The only problem was, the real food I’m used to eating
was missing…

And it had been replaced with…

Bleached white flower. High fructose corn syrup. And
soy bean oil.

90 percent of the food served that night was made
from these 3 ingredients.

So this is what my body had to work with.

And as I already mentioned, I had worked out hard
earlier in the day…

And this created a problem…

Because the amino acids normally found in beef, poultry
and fish were missing.

And I needed these aminos to rebuild the muscle I’d
torn down running sprints.

So things weren’t looking too good.

But I did get plenty of wheat in the pasta dish.

But this brought phytic acid to the table.

And this was unfortunate…

Because phytic acid inhibits the absorption of several

Important ones like calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc.

And I needed these minerals….

To rebuild the bone, tendons and ligaments I’d ripped up
while sprinting earlier.

Of course, I did have the fructose to fall back on.

But dietary fructose inhibits calcium absorption and increases
the excretion of iron and magnesium.

So the downward trend continued.

I did have some soy bean oil too…

But this gem decreases the production of testosterone
in the testicles.

So this didn’t do much to improve the situation at all.

I eventually escaped this culinary nightmare, got into
my car and headed home…

And that’s where the story gets real interesting…

I’ve been running sprints for several years now and I
can usually feel them a bit the next day…

But this time was different…

I woke up in the morning feeling like I’d been hit by
a bus.

My joints ached. My thighs and glutes were sore. And I
had lower back pain.

In short, I felt like a rickety old man.

And all this old man stuff came on after only one meal.

I’d hate to think where I’d be now if I was eating like this
every day of the week.

Actually, I know exactly where I would be…

And it would not be a good place.

From the Mailbag:

Hi Mark,

I have a coworker who is constantly trying to one up me
even though I’m his superior.

I’ve tried to keep the situation under control but I’m starting
to lose it.

This is doing a number to my hormones and my confidence.

What can I do?

Hi Leif,

In 2009 researchers from Duke and Harvard Universities
took two male chimpanzees…

Placed them into an enclosure together….

Then put some tasty monkey food right in front of them.

But they left the food just out of their reach…

So these apes had plenty of time to think about what
was coming next….

Male on Male Competition – For Food.

And if chimpanzees are anything, they’re aggressive.


(Photo By wordman1)

They’re also a male dominated society.

So the hormones we’re probably going to be flying
during this experiment, right?

You bet they were…

Before and after tests confirmed that T levels in both
animals swung straight thru the roof.

And remember….

Human males placed in a competitive environment react
just like chimps do…

They respond hormonally to threats. Display aggressive

Do whatever it takes to come out on top.

So here’s what you should take from this Leif…

Competition is going to happen in your life. You can’t
avoid it.

So don’t ever shy away from it. Embrace it.

Unless you enjoy losing, that is.

Which brings me to my next pair of Monkeys…

In the back room behind the chimps the scientists had
two more primates….


Chimpanzee’s smaller cousins, often referred to as pygmy


(Photo by Orlando Dus)

But it’s not just size that makes these ape’s different.

They’re much less aggressive than chimps. And their
society is female dominated.

So things are way more chill with these little guys.

And our next monkey test demonstrated this…

When bonobos were given the exact same food
challenge as the chimps…

Their testosterone levels didn’t budge one bit.

But cortisol did.

Because they chose not to compete for the spoils…

The spoils being food in the bonobos case. And
corporate survival in yours.

Which teaches up something important…

Cortisol in the right amount. At the right time can
be a really good thing.

Say you were doing yoga…

Walking on the beach. Drinking lemonade in a

These would be good cortisol days….

But in a competitive corporate environment?

Where chimpanzee behavior is all you’ll ever see…

High cortisol would be absolutely lethal.

See what I’m saying Lief?

It’s time to step it up.

Test Testosterone Levels

I used to believe that blood testing was the best way to
check testosterone.

But now I know better…

Because serum (blood) tests only check total testosterone.

But the real important number is your Free Testosterone. 

The steroid that is not bound up by carrier proteins.
And is available for immediate use by your body.

This explains why we use saliva to check free testosterone
with our hormone test kits…

It’s the number you really want to know.

But how accurate is saliva hormone testing?

Well, several scientific studies have proven one thing…

It’s the most accurate way to measure bio-available hormone
activity in the human body.

You get information from saliva that simply cannot be found
in blood.

Look at it like this…..

Say you wanted to check the unemployment rate in your

Your blood test number would give you the total population
in the city.

But saliva would give the exact number of people who are
actually employed.

And employed is a good analogy here….

Because free testosterone is the steroid that does all the
work in your body.

But your bound T doesn’t even get out of bed in the morning.

That’s why I will always recommend saliva hormone testing
over blood testing.

Unfortunately many doctors don’t see it this way…

They check total testosterone and base their medical
decisions off that number.

Bad move.

Especially if that doc has a habit of putting men on
Androgel based on these numbers.

And I can tell you right now a LOT of them do this.

But this won’t happen to you. Because now you know
better 🙂

Salivary Cortisol: A Better Measure of Adrenal Cortical Function Than Serum Cortisol

Aspartic Acid Testosterone

I’ve never had any luck with D Aspartic Acid…

Until recently, that is.

And now I know why so many bodybuilders worship
this supplement.

It really works if you get things right.

The problem is – older guys respond to aspartic acid
much differently than younger guys do…

If you’re over 30 you’ll get nice T bump from it initially.

But that testosterone will be converted to estrogen at a
rapid rate.

This is my theory at least, but I’m positive I’m right.

This explains why I always felt good on aspartic for about
48 hours…

But lost my wood by day 3 every single time I used it.

So step one for me was using aspartic with an aromatase

Because an anti-aromatase will prevent T to E conversion
in the body.

Here’s the one I used. Along with this brand of D Aspartic Acid.

The beauty of this combo is, it’s dirt cheap…

Even more so if you already have some aspartic sitting
in your medicine cabinet.

If you do, just stick with the brand you already have.

But we’re not done yet…

We still have to figure out how to cycle this stuff…

Because aspartic acid is an amino. Not a T-Booster.

So we can use it on a much longer cycle…

The most recent study on aspartic had the participants use
2,000 mg for 90 days straight.

After I read this I thought, great. I’ll take it every morning and
see how it goes.

Bad move.

After 2 weeks following this plan the benefits disappeared

Even though I was using an anti-aromatase.

So it was back to the drawing board.

Then I found an earlier study where the participants were
on a 12 day cycle, followed by a full week off.


That did the trick for me.

More frequent nocturnal erections was the most noticeable

And they hit me early…

Sometimes only 3 hours after I hit the sack which is highly
unusual for me.

And this occurred despite the fact that I take my aspartic early
in the morning…

So the half life of this stuff is impressive. And the benefits accumulate.

If you’d like to test this yourself, here’s how I suggest you use it.

Take 12 days off your testosterone boosters.

But continue to paint if you’re following that protocol…

Then take 3 grams of D-Aspartic Acid every morning for 12 days…

Along with one cap of this.

In the study I referred to earlier the participants saw total testosterone
increase 42 percent after 12 days of use…

But they saw no additional increase after that. So make sure you stop
after dose number 12.

Then when you cycle off the aspartic, go back to your T-boosters.

The 12 day gap will ensure that they’ll hit you hard when you
cycle back on.

And in case you’re wondering…

The shilajit that we talked about last week stacks up nicely with
aspartic acid…

…because shilajit enhances the effectiveness of any other supplement
you’re taking.

So stay with it if you’re using it. If not, don’t worry about it..

So that’s it…

If you decide to try this, do me a huge favor and give me your
feedback after your first 12 day cycle.

I’d especially like to hear from men who are over the age of 40.

You guys often make it to a certain point, then get stuck and
find it hard to make additional progress.

I have a strong feeling this protocol will take many of you to
the next level.

Here are the links.

Shilajit Testosterone









A site regular has me hooked on something…

A unique substance called Authentic Shilajit.

He pitched this product hard when he first contacted

But I told him that I’m already familiar with Shilajit.

I’ve written about it on my website…

And I have some sitting in my medicine cabinet
as well.

So thanks, but no thanks.

But this guy was convicted…

Extremely persistent in an almost weird kind of way.

So after five solid days of email frenzy…

I finally threw in the towel and pulled out my wallet.

The total was $59.95.

Not cheap.

The package hit my box a few weeks ago….

I opened it up and saw that this Shilajit was strange.

Unlike any I’d ever seen before…

Because there were no capsules or pills in the box.

This was a small container of thick gooey paste.

Curious, I cracked it open on the spot….

Threw caution to the wind and took the max dose.

It tasted like a cross between burnt rubber and
industrial grease.

But I got it down. Then I waited.

And in about 90 minutes – this stuff hit me hard.

But in a smooth way…

Think all the good of a strong coffee without any
of the negatives..

No jitters. Racing heart rate. Or anxiety.

Just pure energy.

And the libido boost it brought on was Furious.

Almost too much actually.

Especially for a guy who’s been cycling and painting

But there was more to come…

I was also hit with strong appetite suppression.

Really high motivation. Less need for sleep.

And potent mental clarity.

And all this good stuff has hit me every time
I’ve used it since…

Not as strong as the first dose, but still nice and

They say that shilajit works with your negative
feedback loop in a beneficial way.

So it supposedly doesn’t need to be cycled.

I’ve tested this myself and I know it’s true.

I was so fired up about this find I tracked down the
guy who brought it to market.

And I found him in Bangkok Thailand.

And we skyped…

It was a fascinating conversation to say the least..

It turns out he’s an LA man…

Who after using this real Shilajit literally dropped

And dedicated more than 14 years of his life to finding
more of it.












And I don’t blame him one bit.

He’s been living and breathing this Ayurvedic miracle
for close to 15 years now.

He spends much of his time searching for Shilajit at
extremely high elevations in the Himalayas…

Because this is the only place you’ll find the genuine stuff.

And I can confirm that his unbelievable dedication has paid


I need to wrap up now because I could go on about this
stuff forever.

So here’s my review of this product:

This is one of the most potent supplements I’ve ever
laid my hands on.

And based on my experienced I’d say this is a Must

So sell your dog. Hock your children. Do whatever
it takes.

Just get your hands on some.

And if you don’t like it for some strange reason.

Contact me…

I’ll buy it from you. (I mean it).

You can’t patent a natural substance like Shilajit, so good research
is really hard to find…

But I was able to locate one solid study. You’ll find it just below if you’d like to dig deeper:

Clinical evaluation of spermatogenic activity of processed Shilajit in oligospermia.

J. B. Roy State Ayurvedic Medical College and Hospital, Kolkata, India. biswastuhin@rediffmail.com


Twenty-eight patients who completed the treatment showed significant improvement in spermia, total sperm count, motility, normal sperm count with concomitant decrease in pus and epithelial cell count compared with baseline value.

Significant decrease of semen MDA content (oxidative stress) was observed. Moreover, serum testosterone levels significantly increased.

The present findings provide further evidence of the spermatogenic nature of Shilajit, as attributed in Ayurvedic medicine, particularly when administered as PS.

Iodine sinus headache

I hit a bump in the road….

A while back I did my testicle painting ritual when I woke up.

Later that day when I was eating lunch – I felt a sinus
headache coming on…

And I never get sinus headaches.

So I smelled a connection.

Could this be a halide detox symptom?

So I started asking around…

And it turns out the answer is Yes.

Sinus headache is a halide detox symptom.

So even though I’ve been flushing this garbage for
two months.

I still haven’t gotten it all out.

So here’s a bit of advice for you….

If you’re painting and you feel a side effect coming on.

Take a day off the iodine.

Then go back to Original Protocols outlined in the booklet
(salt loading – cofactors).

This tactic worked almost instantly in my case.

It also taught me 3 important things:

– I had a huge halide problem.

– The co-factors get the job done. So use them.

– I need to stay with the original protocols a while longer

My plan now is to use them for two more weeks…

Then run another test and start tapering down again.

If no sinus headache develops. I’ll be good to go.


This has been my first bump in the road so far.

And when I stack this negative up against all the
positives I’ve seen…

Positive wins easily.

But it hasn’t been a complete cake walk….

I got hit with the detox I just told you about…

The hassle factor on this is much higher than most of
the other stuff we’re doing.

And you gotta stick with it.

So if you’re not the stickin type this protocol probably
isn’t for you.

And for all you guys who are already painting….

I’m going to leave you with a little inspiration:

Hi Mark,

As soon as I started I knew something was happening because
my urine was dark yellow and smelly every time I peed.

I also felt a little off the first 3 days after I started.

After that finally went away I started to wake up downstairs.

It’s hard put in words exactly what’s happened because it’s
impacted me on so many different levels.

But the most positive thing I can tell you is that my love life
has improved to A LOT.

Three times a week in is not unusual now, where before it
happened maybe once, if that.

I now have much more desire, and the tool to back it up.

Thank you Mark!

Does Heart Burn Cause Low Testosterone?

Heart burn sufferers often have very low testosterone levels.

But it’s not the condition itself that causes the problem.

It’s the garbage men use to treat it.

And I’m not just talking about the hardcore stuff…

Even the over the counter products can take you out..

(rolaids – tums – pepcid ac – tagamet, zantac, etc,)

And why is this?

Because when you decrease stomach acid in an unnatural
way – which is what these band aids fixes do..

Your body cannot digest and assimilate food normally.

And if you think about it – that’s why you have stomach acid
in the first place, right?

To break down your food?

So if you throw a roadblock in front of this process…

…vital nutrients that your body needs are NOT going to be
extracted and sent into your blood stream.

The science boys have a word for this. It’s called malnourishment.

And if for some strange reason you were looking for a way to
decrease your T levels…

Malnutrition would be one of the fastest ways to get there.

The nutrient you’d miss the most is Vitamin A…

Because A is the one that you need a Lot of to produce T
at normal levels.

And if you’re downing tums, or throwing back tagamet like
candy – you’re not getting enough.

Almost Guaranteed.

And don’t even get me started on the hardcore stuff (nexium,
prilosec, etc..)

Because these nasties can cause outright gynaecomastia.
(also known as man-boobs).

And you certainly don’t need that.


When given a choice Always take the natural route.

Your body will thank you for it.

Hormone Replacement in Men Over 30?

There’s a hormone replacement party going on…

And you’re invited.

One trip to the doc’s office and you’ll have your invitation
in hand.

Even if you’re not in the mood to party.

These invitations used to be really hard to get…

You had to be over the hill with really low testosterone.
And pretty damn sick to get one.

But not these days…

As a matter of fact, sick isn’t even part of the equation anymore.


If you’re old enough to drive a car – and you test out below 500
you’re automatically in.

Funny thing is, that 500 number doesn’t tell you much.

Especially if the test was Not taken first thing in the morning.

You see, 500 at 2pm may not be as bad as you think.

Especially if that number was closer 700 when you woke
up in the morning.

And chances are pretty decent is was.

Especially if you still sprout wood between 3-6 am on
a regular basis.

But it goes deeper than this…

Because that total number doesn’t tell you another thing…

Your Free Testosterone levels.

The stuff your body can actually use…

This is the Real important number.

And this one doesn’t move around so much…

So if you test it at 2pm, you’re still going to a have good
snapshot of what’s going on.

Now here’s a tip for you…

If your free numbers test out over 80 pg/ml…

Chances are good you already own that 700 we just
talked about.

And if not, you’re just a breath away.

So here’s my question to you today:

Do you know what your free testosterone number is?

If you don’t, I suggest you get this vital piece of information.

I’ve made it real easy for you.

It’s important. So I suggest you do it.
