About This Book
This is the only real book in
the world that factually and accurately talks about testosterone for men and
women. You will find countless journal citations so you will know that
everything you are reading is heavily documented by published international
research. It is only in the last few years that we have finally learned very
much about testosterone - especially for women. Until recently nearly all
research was done with toxic oral and injected salts instead of real, natural
testosterone used sublingually and transdermally. The worldwide medical
profession walks in darkness here. Most people depend on doctors for their
ailments, but doctors just cannot help you when it comes to hormones - and that
includes naturopaths, gynecologists, life extension specialists and even
Testosterone is not a Magic Hormone to be used by
itself to cure what ails you. All our hormones work together in concert, and all
of them must be balanced together in endocrine harmony. This means you need to
test and balance your basic fourteen hormones as much as possible to get the
best results. The last chapter Your Other Hormones is the most important one
Hormones are only one part of a total natural
lifestyle. Diet is everything and hormonal balance is secondary. You should eat
a whole grain based, low fat, high fiber diet. Supplements are important, and
anyone over the age of 40 should be taking at least a dozen natural supplements.
Regular exercise is a pillar of staying healthy all your life. Avoiding (at
least limiting) bad habits is a big part of this. Fasting is the most powerful
healing method known. Lastly, meditation and prayer keep your spiritual house in

are most basic to our health and well being, yet almost no one knows anything
about their own hormone levels. Medical doctors know almost nothing about our
hormones, and that includes endocrinologists who are supposed to specialize in
such. Doctors rarely test for hormone levels and even then only for one or two.
Doctors generally dont know how to properly test hormone levels, which hormones
to test for, or what the ranges should be, much less how to administer them or
in what forms.
You can direct your doctor as to
precisely which free, unbound hormones you want tested and see your own results.
You can also test most hormones yourself with saliva and not use a doctor.
Testosterone is one of the most important human hormones for both men and women,
yet proper testosterone supplementation is almost unknown to the medical
profession, especially for women. Low testosterone levels cause countless
problems for both sexes including decreased libido, sexual dysfunction, less
sexual satisfaction, infertility, irritability, depression, poor concentration,
decreased sense of well being, prostate disease and testicular decline in men,
diabetes and other blood sugar problems, gynecological conditions in women,
impaired cognition, less stamina, obesity, high body mass index, decreased
muscle mass, gynecomastia and smaller penis size in men, impaired vasomotor
function, osteoporosis, coronary heart problems, diseases of all kinds, and
conditions we still havent researched. All in all were talking about not
merely longer lifespan, but a better all around quality of life by
maintaining youthful levels.
It is only in the last few years that scientists
have started to use natural sublingual and transdermal testosterone rather than
unnatural toxic oral and injected salts. The pharmaceutical corporations are
still trying to push injectable ester salts, overpriced patches, and implanted
pellets instead of inexpensive creams, gels, and sublingual solutions. In fact,
the currently available gels are very weak and vastly overpriced. One dollars
worth of testosterone will often retail for one hundred dollars in a cream or
gel. Sublingual solutions are unheard of. This is nothing short of criminal to
severely overcharge for natural hormones.
Men can suffer from deficient testosterone at any
age, but usually only after the age of 40 or so. Men cannot naturally
overproduce testosterone or suffer from hypergonadism. Real life testing shows
that literally 90% of men over age 50 can and should use supplemental
testosterone to maintain youthful levels.
Women can suffer from deficient or excessive
testosterone at any age even in their teenage years. Most women dont even know
they have testosterone in the bodies much less know their level! Doctors
generally have no idea women need to maintain youthful levels of this, and
consider testosterone the male hormone. We need much more research on women
There are many hundreds of studies in my files and
this book could be a lot, lot longer. Half of this book would be devoted to and
should be devoted to women, but the research just isnt there. At least 95% of
all testosterone research is done on men only. In the future well have far more
research on the androgens testosterone, DHEA and androstenedione for women.
Meanwhile the women reading this book should just generally realize the benefits
discussed basically apply to them as well.
