Just a quick note. I had an email from a customer last week and I believe the content and my response will interest you.
I have been taking your total health for a month now, watching my diet, avoiding red meat and eating more fruits and vegetables. I must be honest with you I used to eat loads of red meat and kebab but I have stopped altogether. The flow has improved slightly and able to hold water a bit longer than before. I have also read your book and keep reading it.
My question is that you stated as supported by various researches that low testosterone causes prostate problems. If that is the case why can’t we
simply replace the hormone artificially to solve it rather than relying on the body which is not efficient due to age. Women who have problems with menopause simply take HRT and the problem is solved. Are there any food that boost testosterone?
I am glad that you are making progress and that my diet advice and Total Health are producing some good early results. It will take time and your improvement will continue. You raise an interesting point about Testosterone. You see the whole basis of my healing philosophy is that you need to keep it natural because there are no genuine quick fixes, just like there are no free lunches.
You mention that women can just take HRT to replace what is missing naturally. But you obviously are not aware that women taking HRT substantially increase their risk of death from strokes and heart failure. Basically when you mess with nature, nature messes with you.
Even though having high Testosterone naturally is good to prevent prostate cancer, there are dangers in supplementing Testosterone unless you first test all your hormone levels. For example if your Estradiol is high then adding Testosterone may make the body convert it to DHT which can actually cause prostate cancer.
Taking Testosterone as a supplement can in certain circumstances be very dangerous. So, if you want to supplement Testosterone let me first test and analyze your hormone levels. It can be done with a home test. To understand more about this hormone interaction and its implications for prostate cancer, please read the chapter on Testosterone in my book again.
The best way to boost Testosterone naturally is to do vigorous resistance exercise. This will also improve your health and sloow down any dvelopment of prostate cancer. Exercise is not limited by age. In my gym (where I work out every day) there is a man of 93 who goes through a punishing exercise routine every day and is as fit as a fiddle. Of course if you are unused to it, you have to take it easy to start with and gradually build up. There is no food that reliably increases Testosterone.
