|Coffee or Testosterone
The Afternoon Low
By Ina Mlekush M.A. M.F.C.C.
It is 2:30 in the afternoon. Are you tired, looking for that cup of pick-me-up coffee or energy bar? Did you know that men's testosterone has a daily cycle and the afternoon is generally your low point of the day? Guess when your cycle is high. That's right, in the morning when you wake up with that beautiful erection.
What does testosterone has to do with low energy? Everything! If it is low for men (or women), you will not have the vim and vigor that once permeated your life. Here are some side affects that are caused by low testosterone for men:
- Increased abdomen girth (this is putting it nicely)
- Premature aging
- Decreased sex drive
- Low cycles will affect your overall life performance but you may recognize it best during work, in midday sports or your afternoon weekend naps
- Loss of Motivation
As you have gotten older, have you noticed a slight decline in your sexual desires and morning erections but thought nothing of it, attributing it to aging? WRONG, attribute it to STRESS. 98% of our body rebuilds itself continually.
Stress is a "pac man" that gobbles up your hormones. When one hormone is being stressed out, consumed, it will pull on other hormones to replenish it. The body can actually change one hormone into another. Now we have a domino affect with the 4 hormones which are key to a man's sex drive, erections, and overall well being, Testosterone, Estradiol, DHT and DHEA being affected. Without them being in proper ratio, we women get to experience, what men have been dealing with, since our first menstruation cycle. Now it is our turn to be understanding and supportive.
Because this imbalance usually happens gradually, you do not even realize you have been going down hill for years. Aging? No! Stress? Yes!
Of course exercise and a healthy diet also play into this equation. When the hormones are out of balance you are not living up to your full potential and you know it. It affects your self esteem and performance in all categories.
Can you do anything about it? YES! You can and you should. You are not being given the scientifically proven information that Natural Hormone replacement therapy can have you feeling, living and making love like your Young self again.
Taking natural hormones is no different then taking vitamins and minerals to compensate for our foods that no longer have the nutritional value our body needs. You definitely can have your hormone levels checked with a saliva or blood test. Consider taking a Bio-Identical Natural Hormone replacement and rediscover your vim and vigor. DO NOT take a pharmaceutical given by most doctors. They will even tell you, not to take for more then a few years because it increases your risk of cancer. Why take it at all, if it increases your risk of cancer, when there is an FDA approved alternative?
Great Spirit built our bodies to Live Vibrantly. Civilization produces stress that drags us down.
