Because although those things are a sure sign of aging…you may not have to just lie down and take it.
And if you do feel drained of energy, sport a mighty gut that resembles a “baby bump,” have circulatory issues or other head-scratching health concerns, the answer could be found in your old pal testosterone.
That’s right, buddy – the very same hormone that caused therapy-inducing embarrassment during your formative years (we needn’t go into details of just how the testo became your sexual manifesto) may be striking again…This time sabotaging your precious health instead of your social life.
Gaining an understanding of how testosterone affects you is only the first step, the main thing is to take action and get it under control so it never embarrasses you again or worse – causes disease.
Yes – you read that right – low testosterone levels can increase your chances of getting heart disease, diabetes, dementia and other age-related conditions!

Major advances have been made that can help you carve out a safe path around these pitfalls and enjoy life far into your Golden Years without worry, depression, or contempt. A little common sense along with a few natural remedies can eliminate age-related health problems for life.
Testosterone: The good and the bad
Testosterone is an oddball hormone to say the least…
Essentially, this steroid is built with cholesterol. It’s found in utero and right after we’re born. But one of its most memorable entrances comes during puberty.
The embarrassment of developing “pizza face” as the facial hair begins to grow under testosterone’s influence…the cracking, popping voice as the larynx begins to grow and mature…and of course – the psychological turmoil that came with all these changes.
Then, as its levels balance and the maturity settles, testosterone gives us our competitive edge, confidence, energy, and – ahem – sex drive.
And although most gals have only 1/7 the amount as us fellas, ladies – you’re influenced quite a bit by what little’s there! Of course, we all have more or less depending on our genetic make-up.
Then, as we men age this oddball hormone turns on us again.
Testosterone giveth and testosterone taketh away…
Funny thing is – once it balances in your system, testosterone begins to get ironic on you.
That confidence, energy, sex drive, and edge – it just zaps them and quietly takes them away from you – then it gets even more vicious and increases your risk of certain diseases.
So here’s a health flash for you:
The best indicator of your overall good health can be found in your sex drive, libido, mojo, machismo, virility…whatever you care to call it. If you can’t or no longer have the desire to “light that fire,” then it could be a sign of degrading health.
But who ever said you shouldn’t have sexual energy, health and virility as you age?
You can if you make a few dietary changes and refocus your mind…
Great health comes from combining natural remedies based on scientific proof, and a little common sense…wrap that up with some positive thought and you have a healthy package – a gift that keeps on giving your whole life.
Ignore proper nutrition and testosterone could easily have its way with you…
But, just what causes this hormonal ruckus?
It’s all about the X’s and Y’s
There are two sperm types, X or Y.
- The X is the largest chromosome storing the most genes to control life’s complex biological processes.
- The Y chromosome on the other hand only stores a small amount of genetic information.
- In combination…XX = Female and XY = Male.
Simply put, every human needs one X chromosome for life…but only males need the Y.
It makes a dude a dude!
At only 6 weeks after conception, the Y chromosome starts the development of male testes, which begin making testosterone.
And this hormone is more than a game changer; it’s also a brain changer!
Because cognitive thinking processes and critical psychological development is triggered by testosterone.
Earlier I said a downgraded libido may indicate degrading health…
Why, then, is the libido such a strong indicator of male health and vitality?
Because a healthy libido means everything is working smoothly. Your mojo defines your health and your health defines your mojo!
The secret to controlling age-related disease and illness is simply to prevent the weakening of the processes keeping your cells energized and “growing.” Life extension experts believe one day we will crack the “immortal gene.” Having better understanding how our environment, nutrition and lifestyle factors all play together is the key.
And part of that key to understanding is eating right…
Here’s a great libido boosting recipe you’ll love!

Pandemic Testosterone Deficiency (TD)
Low testosterone levels are typically defined as less than 300 ng/dL (nanograms per deciliter) of total testosterone and less than 5 ng/dL of free testosterone.
Testosterone Deficiency (TD) is wide spread in today’s male population and responsible for many health problems and concerns. It’s important to note that testosterone production increases rapidly at puberty and decreases rapidly after age 50.
It’s estimated that more than 13,000,000 American males have testosterone deficiency (TD) and less than 10 percent get help for it.
Studies reveal men with obesity, diabetes, or hypertension may be twice as likely to suffer from testosterone deficiency (TD).
We know the primary purpose of testosterone is to develop male reproductive organs . . . testosterone also supports 10 other vital male qualities.
Testosterone Supports 10 Secondary Qualities:
- Bone Mass
- Fat Distribution
- Hair Patterns
- Laryngeal Enlargement
- Vocal Chord Thickening
- Healthy Mood
- Sex Drive
- Cellular Energy
To reverse testosterone deficiency (TD), you need to know what causes it. Already missing the extra X chromosome, man needs all the help he can get from testosterone. We know nutrition is key, but this will do you no good if your cells are exposed to toxins. Most men’s cells are chocked so full of environmental and dietary toxins that there isn’t any room for nutrients.
Before you can do any good, you’ll first have to eliminate the poisons attacking your cells and causing diseases.
6 Chemical Terrorists Wreaking Hormonal Havoc:
- Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
- NutraSweet (Aspartame)
- Hydrolyzed Protein
- Hydrogenated Oils (Trans Fats)
- Sodium Fluoride
- Biphenol A (BP-A)
Aspartame, MSG and hydrolyzed protein are excitotoxins that destroy neurons. Exposing yourself to any of these toxins is the same as exposing your cells to chemical warfare. Bio-hazardous chemicals like fluoride, BPA and trans-fats have also been proven to cause brain and reproductive damage.
Animal studies have shown pregnant mothers exposed to small doses of glutamate have children who develop reproductive health problems during puberty, such as shrinking testicles. There is evidence these excitotoxins also trigger hyperactivity and result in low cognitive performance. The neurons get so over-excited they literally burn up and die, shutting down hormone signaling as well as brain function.
The FDA claims your brain is protected by a blood-brain-barrier, however this is incorrect. Not only can these excitotoxins cross your blood-brain-barrier and enter your brain directly, there are also parts of your brain without a blood-brain-barrier at all, such as your hypothalamus – the part of your brain that performs a variety of functions but most important – it links your endocrine system with your central nervous system.
So it’s up to you to keep you hypothalamus healthy and working properly.
Here are a couple excellent food choices for maintaining a health hypothalamus:
- Sprouted whole grains/seeds
- Raw Vegetables
- Raw Fruits
- Raw nuts
Basically, there are certain health hazards that come with age. Yet these hazards can be avoided – or at the very least, indefinitely put off – by paying close attention to what you put in your body.
Here’s an age controlling recipe that might just be your fountain of youth:
What you’ll need:
- 2 pieces of sprouted seed bread
- 1 tablespoon of Chyawanprash (5,000 year old Ayurvedic practice, its an Indian jam blended with age-defying herbs and spices. It can easily be found online.)
- 1 tablespoon raw almond butter (vitamin E, zinc, magnesium, phosphorous, calcium, folic acid)
- 1 teaspoon extra virgin coconut oil (good fats)
What to do:
Lightly toast the bread just enough to melt the coconut oil into both halves, then spread the Chyawanprash on one slice and the almond butter on the other slice. Make a sandwich and enjoy.
How to Level the Playing Field Naturally
Eat right, exercise and educate yourself on why you’re feeling the way you do to determine the best course of action to fix it.
Your body is a remarkable and complex machine that has the power to heal itself as long as you respect it and treat it right.
Having lower testosterone – or rising estrogen – levels doesn’t mean it’s time to throw in the towel – it just means you need to take extra special care of yourself and find out how to replenish your youthful past.
Keep nutrient rich foods in your diet and stay out of the funeral pyre. Instead of getting old, make sure you’re growing old so when the time comes, you’ll be able to light that fire!
