Subtle Effects of Low-T
Testosterone Can Slowly Degrade Psychological, Physical, and Sexual
A lot of
men resign themselves to the decline associated with aging. What they
don't realize is that a large number of symptoms most people
associate with the aging process are actually the result of
underlying hormone deficiencies. Because of their slow onset during
mid-life, most men don't realize that the changes in their life are
powerfully affected by these changes in hormone production.
of this article is to help you realize the symptoms of Testosterone
Deficiency so that you can recognize the signs early and seek
treatment to extend the pep and vitality of your life.
Signs of Low-T
Hormone Replacement Therapy has been shown to lead to miraculous
changes in health for men that suffer from Low-T. Testosterone HRT
has been shown to effectively reduce fatigue, increase libido, and
improve mood. It is incredibly easy to resolve an underlying
Testosterone Deficiency, so if you qualify for treatment, there is no
reason not to consider it.
In order to qualify for Testosterone Replacement with the Conscious
Evolution Institute, you have to pass three important criteria:
You Must Have Clinically Low Testosterone Levels
You Must Display Manifest Symptoms of Low-T
You Must be Over the Age of Thirty
be noted that Low-T alone does not warrant medical treatment. Many
men actually have Low Testosterone and don't display symptoms. For
this reason, in order to qualify for Testosterone Replacement, you
must actually be experiencing symptoms of Low-T. This means that
Testosterone Replacement can only be used as a treatment and not as a
starting Testosterone Treatments, it is also important to recognize
that the therapy does have certain side-effects associated with it,
and there is a limited pool of data regarding the long term benefits
and risks of treatment. If you think Testosterone Replacement Therapy
may be the correct course of action for you, talk to a professional,
like those at the Conscious Evolution Institute.
of Testosterone Deficiency
the signs of Testosterone Deficiency are quite obvious when you
actually take the time to acknowledge them, their effects over time
can be incredibly subtle. Testosterone Deficiency is a spectrum
disorder, meaning that dependant upon the level of deficiency, you
will experience a different range of symptoms.
severity of the symptoms also depends upon the severity of the
deficiency. This means that as Testosterone Levels first start to
decline you will feel absolutely no noticeable change, but as months
and years continue to pass, the accumulated effects of continuous
changes in Testosterone Concentration will have an ever-growing
affect on your life.
it like the old science experiment involving the toad. If a toad is
placed in excessively hot water, it will immediately jump to safety.
On the other hand, if you place the toad in water and slowly increase
the temperature to dangerous levels, it will not realize the change
in temperature and will not jump out to save its life. Hormone
Deficiency acts in the same way. It happens so incrementally that
there is significant chance that you are suffering from it and don't
even realize it!
experience Testosterone Decline in a similar way. Men have healthy
levels of Testosterone and HGH throughout the teens and twenties, but
the ability to produce Testosterone slowly starts to decline as we
grow older. Depending on your own personal sensitivity to hormone
deficiency, as well as the unique rate at which your T-Levels
decline, you may experience noticeable symptoms sooner than later.
some of the common symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency:
Energy and Fatigue
course of Testosterone Decline, the body becomes less and less
effective and generating energy and positive metabolism. As a result
of this, you will eventually start to have trouble keeping your
energy levels in the black, causing you to tire out more easily, or
be less able to engage in strenuous physical activity.
is intricately involved with the male Sex Drive. When we are young,
our veins are pulsing with Testosterone, which contributes to our
voracious appetite for sex and romance when we are young. As we get
older, however, our ability to generate that psychological spark
slowly fades. Men often think their decline in libido is a natural
result of age. Wives often think their husbands are simply losing
interest. If you are unable to get excited for your lover, there is a
significant chance that it isn't you, or her, it's your T-Levels.
also confuse Low Libido for a lack of ability to become sufficiently
aroused. ED is the symptom of Testosterone Deficiency which is easily
the most noticeable, but many men experience this issue and still
don't think their problem is simply Low-T.
Low-T simply reduces the frequency of erections, but over time, it
can severely affect the firmness of the erection. The lack of blood
flow reduces both the effectiveness of the erection and the pleasure
gained through sexual activity. In cases of severe Testosterone
Deficiency, the male will often lose the total ability to experience
don't realize that Low-T can have a negative effect upon
psychological health as well as sexual health. Healthy Testosterone
Levels have been strongly correlated with healthy cognitive activity.
As Testosterone Deficiency worsens, it can become more difficult to
focus and concentrate on completing tasks. These concentration
difficulties may be the result of general fatigue which impacts a
man's stamina in all aspects of life.
can also negatively impact psychological well-being. In men,
Testosterone plays a role in maintaining a healthy baseline of
happiness, and Testosterone Deficiency can negatively impact the
release of pleasure chemicals in the brain which stimulate happiness.
There are many men that mistakenly take anti-depressants, when they
should be taking Testosterone.
Temper and Irritability
directly correlated with an increase in the hormone, cortisol.
Although Cortisol is a necessary hormone, men with Low-T start to
produce way too much of it, which contributes to even further
reductions in Testosterone Concentration. Increased cortisol levels
induce stress on the body and mind, causing men to experience
elevated levels of stress which contribute to increased anxiety
issues. The cool, calm, collected influence of Testosterone is
stripped down, leaving a man in a persistent and unhealthy
grow older and their Testosterone Levels Decline, their muscle
strength starts to fade. This is because Testosterone sustains male
muscle mass. It's the single biological reason why men are stronger
than women. Testosterone Deficiency reduces this natural advantage in
muscle building power, however. Most men simply think that aging
causes the muscles to weaken, but it's actually mostly the result of
changes in hormone balance in the male body.
another symptom that is frequently the result of Testosterone
Deficiency, but most men resign the symptom to aging. Testosterone
enhances general metabolism, helping to burn fat and maintain a
healthy muscle-fat ratio. This is one reason why women naturally have
a higher body fat percentage than men.
lower level of metabolism encourages them to distribute fat
differently. Their natural, healthy hormone balance encourages this.
Men with Low-T often start to pack on the pounds, and this extra
belly fat has the capacity to further drain T-Levels because fat
cells have the natural ability to convert Testosterone into Estrogen
Perception of Self
these symptoms combine together and contribute to a general loss of
self-worth. Testosterone Deficiency causes a slow drain of manhood
which can have various negative impacts on overall health. As you are
likely realizing by now, the symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency
contribute heavily to what we perceive as simply aging, but it
encourages an accelerated form of aging which has enhanced negative
impact on all aspects of self.
Impacts Every Aspect of Health and Wellness
that combines all of these symptoms is that they all come on slowly,
and the cause of each symptom on its own could be the result of
multiple different factors. What makes Testosterone Deficiency easy
to recognize is that it impacts various systems at the same time,
contributing to a slew of symptoms that all negatively impact health.
If you are
experiencing any of the above symptoms you may be experiencing
Testosterone Deficiency. The more symptoms you are dealing with, the
more likely that Low-T is a real and terrible problem for you. The
good news is that Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy has the
capability to return a stronger sex drive and a greater sense of
youthfulness and health!
of Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy
One of the great things about Testosterone HRT is that there are a
number of different ways to get treated, simply dependant upon your
personal preference. Below is a list of treatment options available
to any man that suffers from Testosterone Deficiency:
Creams and Gels- One of the
simplest forms of Testosterone Treatment is Topical Testosterone.
Testosterone Gels and Creams are absorbed directly into the skin, and
require a daily treatment. Popular Testosterone Gels are Testim and
Sprays- This form of
Testosterone Treatment is similar to Testosterone Gels, but the
Testosterone is aerated and applied using a pump mechanism. This
simplifies the process of application and makes sure that you only
apply Testosterone where you need it. Popular Testosterone Sprays are
Fortesta and Axiron.
Patches Testosterone is
also available via transdermal patches, which provide Testosterone
steadily over the course on an entire day. These patches are
generally worn on the upper torso or arm. Like Testosterone Gels,
they are applied on a daily basis.
Oral Patches One of the
newest forms of Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy provides
Testosterone via a patch attached to the gums. This form of
Testosterone Replacement is easy to conceal, and requires twice daily
treatment to be effective. It works by releasing the hormone directly
into the blood stream via the sensitive tissues of the mouth. The
most popular Low-T Oral Patch is known as Striant.
Implants Another newer form
of Testosterone Replacement is Testosterone Subdermal Pellets. In
this form of treatment, pellets of Testosterone are implanted just
below the skin, where they release Testosterone steadily over an
extended period of time. Testosterone Pellets last far longer than
other forms of Testosterone Treatment. One dose can last three to six
months! Although Testosterone Implantation is a minor surgical
procedure, you trade one session of surgery for months of treatment.
Injections were the original form of Testosterone Hormone Replacement
Therapy, and are still quite popular today. With this form of
treatment, Injections deliver Testosterone directly into muscle
tissue, where it slowly works its way into your system. Testosterone
Shots come in various forms. Some require multiple administrations
per week, while others T-Injections can last for up to two weeks!
Isn't There a Testosterone Pill?
Testosterone Pills are simply not a viable form of Testosterone
Treatment. When Testosterone is ingested orally, acids and enzymes in
the stomach break down Testosterone into its component parts,
preventing you from experiencing the full benefits of treatment.
This biological breakdown of Testosterone can also harm your liver
over time, because the organ is not designed to handle such high
concentrations of the amino acid fragments which cycle through the
liver after injection.
All other forms of Testosterone Treatment directly deliver
Testosterone to the bloodstream, bypassing the liver and providing
treatment directly to the body.
Anabolics vs. Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy
There is a
widely spread misconception that Testosterone HRT is the equivalent
of taking Steroids for Performance Enhancement. This simply isn't
true. It certainly is true that Testosterone can and has been used
for the purpose of enhancing athletic performance, but when used by
patients with a medical need, it functions quite differently.
of Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy isn't to rejuvenate the
body by pumping it up with unnatural levels of Testosterone, the goal
is simply to restore Testosterone to the healthy levels associated
with optimal, healthy function. Testosterone Abuse does provide gains
to muscle mass and cuts fat, but it also has a number of negative
HRT for men with Diagnosed Testosterone Deficiency is a safe and
effective way to restore health and vitality! Although some men may
experience certain side-effects, these side-effects are generally
mild, and can be easily treated and reversed simply by adjusting
