Do you have normal testosterone levels?
Over the last 50 years, the U.S. government and corporate establishment have vigorously promoted a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet, and unlimited amounts of aerobic activity as being healthy (they are not).
Little to no consideration has been given to stopping the flow of not only toxic foods but the poisonous, industrial by-products polluting the environment. As a result, normal testosterone levels have deteriorated at an alarming pace.
Consider the following:
- Normal testosterone levels are 25% lower than they were 20 years ago.
- The average male estrogen level is 40% higher than it was 20 years ago.
- Rates of male infertility are skyrocketing, and expected to double during the next decade.
- Depression, immune dysfunction, gastrointestinal disease, and cancer rates are all rising.
- Diabesity (obesity + diabetes) affects more than one billion people worldwide, including 100 million Americans and 50% of all Americans over the age of 65.
Statistics indicate that 4 out of every 10 deaths in the U.S. can be attributed to heart disease; the number is projected to double within the next 50 years.
While conventional medicine wants you to believe that all of these diseases are unrelated conditions—which is a work of fiction created by the pharmaceutical industry (and perpetuated by the medical establishment) to sell more drugs—the truth is that they all share a common origin: our modern lifestyle.
Poor dietary choices and resulting nutrient deficiencies, stress, lack of sleep, too little or too much exercise, exposure to toxic chemicals, and the use of medications, both prescription and over the counter, have all played a direct role in the downfall of our health and hormones.
And declines in normal testosterone levels have been overlooked.
Our disease-oriented, pharmaceutical-driven medical system only recognizes and provides restorative therapies for the one percent of men who suffer from hypogonadism—extremely low levels of testosterone.
And since there are no pharmaceutical options for the millions of men suffering from mild to moderate reductions in testosterone and/or elevated levels of estradiol, they are not offered any restorative treatment.
Even if your doctor was on board with offering a treatment, his or her testosterone replacement plan is, at best, a Band-Aid. Because it is an artificial intervention, and conventional testosterone replacement therapies are not effective.
They do nothing to address any underlying, physiological imbalances; their sole purpose is simply to mask symptoms. They are not easily utilized by the body, which will eventually become resistant to their intended effects over time.
Those who use conventional testosterone replacements are subject to the inevitable side effects—the body becomes susceptible to more and bigger imbalances and it becomes completely incapable of producing its own supply of testosterone.
And this often leads to irreversible testicular atrophy. Before you decide to restore normal testosterone levels with testosterone replacement, ask yourself: “Do I really want to rely on artificial hormones for the rest of my life?”
If not, it’s time for you to take charge of your own hormonal health.
And you are in the driver’s seat!
Leave the disease and medications to those who are less educated (including your doctor) and opt for the common-sense alternative—a 100% natural, scientifically-proven step-by-step program that will take you far beyond the superficial management of your symptoms.
The first step?
Determine if lack of normal testosterone is at the core of your problems by taking a simple saliva testosterone test to find out where you stand.
