Guys, there's really good news on testosterone replacement and it is changing the way we think about our hormones.
Testosterone replacement is now being endorsed by Harvard doctors, the New England Journal of Medicine, and researchers at the University of Cambridge and Royal Marsden Hospital in London. Long known to increase virility, sexuality, brain power, and energy, testosterone has been used by men seeking an "anti-aging tonic." But the questions safety and risk still lingered in the minds of many.
After years of research and extensive literature reviews, it is clear that low testosterone levels are not good for men. And, that restoring testosterone to optimum healthy levels turns back the clock for our aging symptoms. Here are some of these breakthrough studies that I'm excited about:
Researchers at the University of Cambridge studied 12,000 men for 10 years to see if testosterone levels were a factor in men's health. They found that men with the lower serum testosterone levels had a marked increase in heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, Alzheimer's, weight problems and cancers of all types including prostate cancer. When they restored testosterone to optimal levels in these men they found a reversal of all these degenerative aging problems (American Heart Journal of Circulation, Nov 2007).
At the same time that this research was being done in Cambridge, Harvard Urologists were reviewing the medical literature for 60 years back and were also testing men for prostate cancer. Their research proved the exact same thing. Men with lower testosterone levels were at a higher risk for all prostate problems (i.e.: benign prostatic hypertrophy and prostate cancer). Restoring these men to optimal levels did not increase their risk; it lowered it! (New England Journal of Medicine, 07).
Now men can literally "have their cake and eat it too". At the Renewal Point, we have long promoted testosterone replacement for men. Our research and experience had shown what is now being printed in the most prestigious of medical literatures. We can continue to feel confident that by restoring our testosterone levels as we age we can enjoy a return to our youth, virility, and sexuality. And a big bonus comes as well: decreasing the risk of the degenerative health problems which plague us all.
To your good health,
Dr. Dan Watts.
