What are hormones?

Hormones are chemical messengers produced by the endocrine glands throughout your body. 

Endocrine glands receive signals from your brain telling them how to oversee various functions within your body. 

The endocrine system is responsible for regulation of the body's temperature, sexual desires, growth, healing, aging, and the function of the immune system. It allows the central nervous system to communicate with every cell in the body. 

The endocrine system essentially connects the nervous system to the rest of the body. 

Hormones basically control everything. 

A predictable increase in hormones occurs at about middle age. 

There are some hormones that decline with aging and some that don't. 

Hormone deficiencies cause diseases such as...

  • Osteoporosis

  • Colon Cancer

  • Heart Disease - leading cause of death

  • Cognitive Decline

  • Alzheimer's

  • Stroke

  • Tooth Loss

  • Macular Degeneration

Men didn't know that much about hormone replacement in the last decade.

  • Lower the risk of other cognitive malfunctions.

  • Decreases the chances of cardio-vascular disease.

  • Lower risk of osteoporosis.

Route of Administration

You can't just apply the cream anywhere. 

This is closest to natural. 

Many BHRT experts believe the best delivery is transmucosal application (labial tissues or anal tissues). You may actually get better results from rotating application to these two sites, but be sure your cream does not contain any suspect ingredients. 

This is the next closest to natural. 

For best results, apply to thin skin areas (areas where you blush). Apply at different times alternating thin skin areas such as inner arms, behind the knees, chest, neck, torso, and upper back. 

It's important to rotate sites because of pooling of the hormone that prevents even absorption. 

How long should men stay on testosterone?

The length of time men should stay on testosterone is measured by the risk vs. the benefit. 

The risks of staying on testosterone look very low. The benefits of staying on testosterone are tremendous. 

Heart disease, Alzheimer's, and protecting the prostate are all tremendous benefits and far outweigh the risks.
