Testosterone update: Already freakin’ high

By jyoung / 2017-04-20

So my test results came back with Total Testosterone at 922, up from 816 the year before. When I look up where this puts me, it says I’m already above the 95th Percentile for a 45 year old man, though I just turned 64: Given that I’m already close to my goal (without resorting to […]


Testosterone: Decision to go for it

I followed the procedure Mike Cernovitch suggests, ordering up an inexpensive sex hormone panel for under $60, went in to a nearby lab and had blood drawn (by an interesting woman from the Ukraine), and […]

What is a Bio-identical Hormone? What happens with hormone levels as we age, and how does that affect our health? Does Progesterone protect against Breast Cancer? Does Testosterone protect against Alzheimer’s Disease?


Testosterone and Health

By jyoung / 2016-01-18

Testosterone!  We all need it (especially men, but even women need it).  It declines after age 30, and it’s also been declining rapidly for more than 50 years from man-made chemicals entering our bodies.  Testosterone Deficiency is associated with many disease conditions.  The popular conception is that Testosterone replacement is dangerous, but the evidence is […]
