A delicate hormone balance is deeply connected to our stress level, the food we eat, the exercise we get, and the toxins we absorb.

Your hormones should exist in harmony with each other.

When levels of each hormone are in the right proportions, body systems are stable. When balance is lost, hormone deficiencies and excesses can cause chronic symptoms and disorders, and raise risks for disease.

What is Testosterone?

Testosterone is a hormone produced primarily in the testes.

*If you have unusually low levels of testosterone, your doctor may prescribe a synthetic version of testosterone. You may be able to choose from testosterone injections, troches, gels or creams.

Some of the first signs that a man may be experiencing this change:

  • A subtle downward shift in strength and energy
  • Loss of enthusiasm for the challenge of work, competition, and sexual activity

Along with the aging process: excessive stress, weight gain, and lack of exercise can further lower testosterone, which will impact stamina, drive and virility.

Benefits of Testosterone Therapy

Men who receive testosterone therapy consequently report that they feel sexier, stronger and healthier. They say that it makes them feel as they did when they were in their prime. They feel more sexually potent and are able to feel the urge to have sex with their partner again. The increase in sexual desire is an important benefit of testosterone replacement therapy. Testosterone injections, creams and gels can stop and reverse the physical decline that robs men of their energy, strength, and libido. Testosterone can restore muscle tone and improve stamina. Testosterone can restore healthy sexual excitement and desire, which in turn, results in an improvement in mood, overall well being and quality of life. Increasing testosterone to normal levels also helps treat symptoms of andropause. (male menopause)
