32 Natural Ways To Increase Testosterone (+ Testosterone Cream Vs. Injections) - Fully Updated Re-Release show art 32 Natural Ways To Increase Testosterone (+ Testosterone Cream Vs. Injections) - Fully Updated Re-Release

Last year I spoke at an event called "A4M" in Las Vegas. My entire presentation was focused on 32 different ways to increase testosterone naturally, with no injections or hormone replacement protocols required. I'm not against bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), but I do think one should explore as many natural alternatives as possible first. Or, for even more bang for the buck, pair BHRT with the tactics you'll discover in this episode.

During our discussion, you'll discover:

-The effects of a night of poor sleep or more alcohol consumption than normal...7:04

  • Lower testosterone as one might expect
  • Other activities (watching a fight, viewing porn, etc.) will elevate testosterone levels

-How to gain a birds eye view of a person's overall hormone quality...10:34

  • Understand the story of your life: environment, history, genetics, etc.
  • Phase 1: CBC, metabolic, lipid, DHEA, total testosterone, TSH, IGF-1, FSH, LH, PSA, SHBG, estradiol
    • CBC is for overall health
    • DHEA can be used to regulate circadian rhythm, overall health, rather than testosterone
    • Free testosterone
    • IGF-1 levels reveal sleep, stress, recovery; potential red flag for pituitary dysfunction
    • High PSA levels may be indicative of prostate problems
    • SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin) levels rise on high fat, low carb diet
  • Thyroid medication is one of the most overused medications
  • Testosterone therapy is not intended to be a permanent solution
  • Lack of sleep, stress, etc. affect the brain's communication w/ the body regarding testosterone production
  • Many variables can affect estrogen levels, which makes it an unreliable indicator of hormone health
  • There are no absolutes; everyone's body absorbs, responds differently

-Why Adam only uses blood tests to quantify his patient's hormone quality...34:10

  • Trust factor: tried and true
  • Other tests such as the DUTCH test are sourced out when necessary
  • Every 6 months is the gold standard for the max time between tests
  • Longtime patients are self-experts
  • Potential to identify other health concerns when blood is tested regularly

-What variables are tested differently for women vs. men...41:20

  • Pregnalone, progesterone; everything else is fairly similar
  • Women typically don't take enough testosterone
    • 30 day cleanse w/ low-dose testosterone cream yields favorable results
  • Women have a wreck of hormones after having a baby
    • Testosterone elevated to optimal levels helps everything else fall into place
  • Low dose = 2.5-4 mg

-Adam's preferred form of delivery for testosterone replacement...45:56

  • For men: 80% use testosterone cream (healthiest and safest means, no needles or gels)
  • Doses can be adjusted based on where they feel the best
  • Injections: split dose throughout the week
  • It's one or the other (injection vs. cream) most of the time
  • Consistent application of small doses is far preferable to infrequent larger doses

-Why the vagina or scrotum isn't the best place to apply the cream...51:23

  • The best place to apply the cream is the back of the knee, forearms, or shoulders
  • It's where the highest concentration of testosterone is already located
  • Patients have reported imbalanced numbers after applying scrotally or vaginally

-Whether increased testosterone levels can deleteriously affect one's overall health...54:08

-About the peptide stacks recommended by RenewLifeRX...1:00:19

-Why Adam wrote his book on controlling alcohol consumption

  • Better Than the Binge, Overcoming the Social Obligation of Alcohol
  • Chronic biohacker (keto diet, intermittent fasting, etc.)
  • Alcohol was always part of Adam's life; had an alcoholic father
  • Went on an alcohol fast for 30 days, then 60, then 90, decided to never drink again
  • There are benefits to microdosing on alcohol, provided it's not a "fall back"

-And much more...
