Testosterone Replacement Therapy – My Anti Aging MD

* Results May Vary

At My Anti-Aging MD, we serve Arlington and Alexandria Virginia with testosterone replacement therapy. Give us a call to schedule a testing or just stop by to see if you are suffering from low testosterone levels. We offer 18 week cycles of testosterone replacement therapy via self injections at home. Our program is physician supervised for your health and safety and you are only required to visit our office for the initial consultation.

Although it is normal for testosterone levels to drop as men age, low testosterone can affect a mans health. The rush of new testosterone in puberty builds muscle and bone, deepens the voice, and revs up the sex drive.In matured men, testosterone is the main hormone that gives men a healthy libido, builds muscle mass and helps maintain energy levels.

Testosterone levels decline steadily after age 30. The decline is relatively small, at an average rate of about 1% to 2% percent per year. By middle age and older, all men experience decline in testosterone, but only a small percentage of men do something about it!

Low testosterone is defined as less than 300 nanograms per deciliter of blood. The symptoms of low testosterone include low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, mood problems, fatigue, and sleep disturbances. Of all men with below-normal testosterone levels, about one-half to two-thirds report symptoms.

Unlike a womans menopause, when estrogen levels plummet over months to very low levels, mens andropause is a gradual decline of testosterone levels over years. The effects of low testosterone can be insidious, even go unnoticed.

Some men with low testosterone levels have symptoms without recognizing them; for example, you may still have a sex drive, but not realize how much it has declined. Men with symptoms of low testosterone can have significant impairment in quality of life and ultimately sex drive. Current medical thinking is that these men should be treated with testosterone replacement.

Low testosterone can be replaced by using a daily skin gel, patches worn on the skin, orally disintegrating tablets, or injections. The general recommendations are to raise the blood testosterone level only into the normal range.

* Results May Vary

My Anti-Aging MD specializes in medically supervised HGH Therapy, Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and Testosterone Therapy treatments that employ the latest advancements in treatment protocols.

Starting around age 30 hormones decline and individuals may experience symptoms of a low testosterone. If so you may be a good candidate for hormone replacement therapy.

What I Learned From Taking Testosterone For A Decade

There are a ton of short articles telling you to eat some kind of new superfood to boost your testosterone, but there is a surprising shortage of real talk about how normal people (men and women) really change their lives by gaining control of their testosterone levels.

I used bioidentical testosterone replacement therapy for almost a decade because I had a medical need for it, then stopped it a few years ago to make sure that it was not a confounding factor during the development of The Bulletproof Diet. I verified that I had found a way to raise my natural production with biohacking.

Ive been very public with my use of smart drugs like modafinil and anti-aging hormones like testosterone for years, and have talked about them with national TV reporters many times, but Ive never written about the experience as a whole until now.

Here is my story, and some real info for both men and women.

See what I learned

This post can absolutely change your life, and probably help you avoid some pitfalls. Like shrunken balls. (I am not an expert in the synthetic anabolic testosterone drugs used by bodybuilders they carry lots of risks but pack a big punch if you want to get swole. Bulletproof is all about having massive clean energy, looking good, and living a very long timeso anabolic steroids arent on my roadmap.)

Testosterone does a lot more than youd think, whether were talking about male or female biology. Its the hormone that helps you burn fat, build muscle [1], and increase your sex drive [2], and its power doesnt stop there. Keeping your testosterone levels in a normal range can make you happier, too [3], and testosterone can even improve your cardiovascular health and decrease your risk of mortality (from all causes!), according to a study of 83,000 older men who underwent testosterone replacement therapy [4].

In my late 20s, I visited an anti-aging doctor who was one of the pioneers of what we now call functional medicine. I got a full hormone test. Shockingly, my testosterone was lower than my mothers. No wonder I felt crappy and was overweight. My other sex hormones were out of whack too, especially my estrogen levels. They were high because the little testosterone I did make my body converted into estrogen. I went on a mix of topical replacement testosterone cream, plus small doses of pharmaceuticals like clomid and arimidex in order to keep my other sex hormones functioning properly.

The doctor regularly measured my levels to be sure they were within the normal range for a male my age. In other words, I wasnt taking roids to get big; I was getting control of hormones that were not functioning well. This is how you should look at testosterone therapy it is a gentle nudge to help you be in normal ranges, not a big push to get you huuu-yge. If youre like me, you want normal ranges of a 27-year-old, not of a 60-year-old. Its my plan to keep my testosterone where it is now (around 700) no matter what it takes. Right now, the Bulletproof Diet and the other biohacks Ive written about do that! Im 43.

The TLDR version of the rest of my story is that within days I found more zest for life than Id had in a long time. I felt better and got sick less. I woke up with a kickstand again. That said, there were some significant side effects too, which you can read about below.

Im telling you all of this because no matter who you are, keeping your testosterone levels balanced is more important now than ever before. Modern living has not been kind to our hormones. In American men, serum testosterone levels have declined by about 1% each year for the past 30 years [5], and you can make a few educated guesses about why. Hormone-disrupting chemicals are more prevalent than ever before, physical activity is less and less common, veganism is popular (I was a raw vegan for a while), and many doctors insist on pushing a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet for health (by the way, the concept of a low-fat diet began in the mid-70s, shortly before the nationwide testosterone decline. It could be a coincidence, but I doubt it).

Here are the 7 most powerful ways I know to increase your testosterone, both medically and naturally. Many of these recommendations are for you too, ladies men may have more testosterone, but its plenty important for women. Read on to learn more.

This is one of the most controversial recommendations I make, but it shouldnt be. Its no different than using thyroid medication. If your levels are low, and the other techniques here dont work, use TRT. You will like your life again. If your levels are low, bioidentical testosterone will make you live longer and better, provided you use it right.

There is no compelling legal, moral, or ethical argument against keeping your hormones wherever you want them, and anyone who tries to tell you otherwise does not have your best interests at heart. That said, you can screw yourself up with self-medication; we have medical schools for a reason.

If you have low testosterone, your functional medicine or anti-aging physician will help you diagnose it. There are several different hormones your physician should measure, but the most important two are your free testosterone and estrogen levels, because converting too much testosterone to estrogen is a problem thats different from not making enough testosterone in the first place. In my case, I wasnt making very much testosterone, and what I was making my body converted to estrogen way too effectively.

You can also order your own labs online from companies like WellnessFX, but unless youre using diet and inflammation control to raise your T, youll want to work with a doctor to treat it.

If you do have a sex hormone imbalance, and fixing your food and stress the way I recommend in The Bulletproof Diet doesnt work, you have a few options for correcting it.

When I first started TRT, my physician prescribed a cream that you rub into your skin. The cream version of TRT is not too convenient, because if someone touches you while you have the cream on, the testosterone can rub off on him/her. This can be really bad around kids or pregnant women. If youre sleeping next to someone, the cream can get on the sheets and transfer over that way, too. The cream can be annoying, but it works. Theres also a gel version called AndroGel; I skipped it because it doesnt absorb as well as the cream does.

The best place to put the cream or gel is on the scrotum (or perineum for women, but a different dose for sure!). However, no one likes greasy balls. The next best place is the armpits, so like many men on TRT I shaved my armpits and put the cream there. Greasy armpit hair = no bueno.

There is a dirty little secret about testosterone cream that almost no one knows, and Im going to share it here. Please dont abuse it. If you take a vanishingly small dose of testosterone cream and apply it to your labia and the vulva (or your partners), you will witness a form of vasodilation rarely seen no matter how good you are in bed. It has a profound local effect and will produce a night you wont forget for years.

You are still messing with hormones, and you dont want to do this all the time, but on an occasional basis, it is unlikely to be harmful, and very likely to blow your mind. (REMEMBER: THIS IS A DRUG. DO NOT DO THIS WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS NOT CONSENTED. That would be evil.)

In the last few years, a lot of men and women have switched over to a pellet that goes under your skin. This is probably the best way to take testosterone now. The pellet is life-changing for both men and women (the dose for women is much lower than it is for men). Women, you wont get bulky and grow a beard when you take testosterone to achieve normal levels, but you will probably lean out a little without losing your curves, and your energy and sex drive will be amazing. Female bodybuilders who experience weird scary side effects are taking anabolic steroids.

Some anti-aging physicians also use sublingual ( taken under the tongue) forms of non-bioidentical testosterone like oxandrolone. I took oxandrolone with a physicians guidance for about two weeks, and I got pimples and hair loss. I quit and was bummed that it didnt generate enough impact to write a blog post about it. I have continued to recommend bioidentical testosterone since.

Before TRT, I recommend trying the natural testosterone-balancing methods I outline in the rest of this post. (If you decide to do TRT, work with a doctor, use bioidentical testosterone, and keep your levels right where they should be. Taking too much is dangerous, and I do not advocate TRT without a qualified physicians guidance.

Be sure you cycle testosterone, too. After taking it for a couple years, I forgot to cycle, and I suffered gonadal hypotrophy my balls shrank. Dont let this happen to you!

Im all good now, by the way. I talked with a doctor about it and we decided to use a short course of HcG (another hormone) to correct the problem. Fortunately, the boys are full-size and happy again.

Like you would on the Bulletproof Diet.

Heres how your body makes testosterone:

Cholesterol > pregnenolone > androstenedione > testosterone

Testosterone begins with cholesterol. In fact, every single sex hormone you make you synthesize from cholesterol thats one reason a heart healthy low-fat, low-cholesterol diet limits your performance. Fat and cholesterol dont make you fat. They give your body the building blocks to create abundant testosterone and other sex hormones, which actually makes you lose weight and build muscle, especially if your current testosterone levels are low [1].

You may find this hard to believe, but some common breakfast foods like Kelloggs corn flakes and Graham crackers were invented 100 years ago to lower male libido. Kellogg and Graham believed that male sexual desire was the root of societys problems, so they set out to make bland foods that would take away libido (this is absolutely true; look it up). That low fat, grain-based thing absolutely works wonders for lowering testosterone.

There are two keys to incorporating fat in your diet: getting enough fat, and getting the right kinds of it. A study from 1984 (done, no doubt, with Big Brother watching) looked at 30 healthy men who switched from eating 40% fat (much of it saturated) to 25% fat (much of it unsaturated), with more protein and carbs to make up the difference in calories. After 6 weeks, their average serum testosterone, free testosterone, and 4-androstenedione (an important hormone for testosterone synthesis) all dropped significantly [6]. I think getting 40% of your calories from fat is too little I recommend 50-70% of calories from fat, or even more in some cases.

The other component of that study is that the subjects ate much less saturated fat. Saturated fats are common in meat, butter, and coconut products, and theyre crucial for your body to function. Saturated fats keep the integrity of your cell membranes, and if you limit carbs and/or do Bulletproof Intermittent Fasting, saturated fats become a phenomenal source of energy for your brain.

Great sources of fat include grass-fed beef and lamb, butter from grass-fed animals, pastured egg yolks, coconut oil, Brain Octane oil, raw nuts, avocados, and wild-caught fatty fish (sockeye salmon is my favorite). You can check out a full list of Bulletproof-approved fats here.

Sugar is to testosterone what kryptonite is to Superman. Eliminating sugar is probably the single most powerful way to increase your performance, in part because sugar absolutely devastates your testosterone levels (but all carbs do not, especially under heavy training.) In one study of 74 men, a 75g dose of sugar about the equivalent of a bottle of soda decreased serum testosterone by 25% in under an hour, and levels stayed low for at least 2 hours [7]. On top of that, 15% of the men who started with normal testosterone dipped into the hypogonadal range after they ate sugar thats the range in which doctors diagnose mens testes and womens ovaries as failing. When you do eat carbs, stick to Bulletproof ones like sweet potatoes and squash. My recommendations for types of carbs and how often to eat them are here.

You can still enjoy sweet flavors on the Bulletproof Diet, including desserts, but use birch syrup (xylitol from trees) or erythritol or stevia, not artificial sweeteners.

Exercise is the original testosterone booster, and its one of the most powerful full-body hacks around. Men see a sharp increase in both testosterone and human growth hormone (HGH) after lifting weights, and the boost is greater with shorter rest time between sets (1 minute rest outperforms 3 minutes rest) [9]. With the shorter rest time, women also get a large boost in HGH.

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is another great option, especially if youre short on time or dont want to spend an hour in the gym for every workout. HIIT pushes you to your edge in minutes by using super intense exercise punctuated by brief rest. A full workout can take fewer than 20 minutes and leave you spent.

Rest and recovery is just as important as exercise, if not more so. Every time you do an intense workout, give yourself a minimum of 2 days to recuperate afterward, if not more. And dont mix exercise with sleep hacking. If youre exercising, get at least 8 hours of sleep every night. Your body uses it to rebuild, and you can throw your hormones out of whack if you dont rest up properly. Heres a more in-depth guide to Bulletproof weight training, complete with sample workouts.

Vitamin D and zinc are both essential to testosterone production. A year-long study looked at the vitamin D and testosterone levels of 2299 men. It found that men with vitamin D levels above 30 nmol/L had more testosterone and lower levels of sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG). SHBG binds to hormones so your cells cant use them, and if you have too much of it, your testosterone levels drop [8]. Men with vitamin D deficiency had lower testosterone and higher SHBG levels.

The other interesting thing about the study: mens testosterone levels were lowest in March (at the end of winter) and highest in August (at the end of summer). Sunlight affects your vitamin D production, so you have seasonal dips and peaks. Get a blood test to check your levels, and if youre low, take a high-quality vitamin D3 supplement. If youre going to take D3, take vitamin K2 and vitamin A with it. The three work in sync, so you want them all to be balanced. Here are my dosage recommendations.

Take a look at your zinc levels while youre getting your vitamin D checked. Zinc deficiency can also cause low testosterone. If youre low on zinc, try eating more grass-fed red meat, and maybe a few oysters now and then. You can also take a zinc supplement the dose will depend on how deficient you are, if youre deficient at all.

Yes, seriously. Many deodorants, lotions, shampoos, conditioners, shaving creams, and other grooming products contain hormone disruptors. Check the labels on your toiletries for:

If youre using products that contain phthalates or parabens, ditch them in favor of natural options. Its especially important to use a good deodorant, because the pores in your armpits absorb chemicals easily.

And never, ever use antiperspirant deodorant. When you stop yourself from sweating, youre blocking your bodys natural detoxing system. Plus, most antiperspirants use aluminum to stop your sweat. Aluminum has possible links to dementia, especially Alzheimers [12]. Its also what causes yellow underarm stains.

Two natural deodorant brands that really work are Herban Cowboy and Fat Face, and EO makes excellent lotion, shampoo, and conditioner. I love Mother Dirt for bacteria-friendly shampoo and soap.

Professional-athlete-turned-biohacker Maximilian Gotzler gave a speech about boosting testosterone at the 2015 Bulletproof Conference. He started by leading the room through the Haka, a Maori war dance that New Zealands pro rugby team has made popular. The Pasadena Conference Center trembled as over 100 people shouted and stomped in unison. It was awesome.

It also had a purpose. It turns out posing in powerful stances causes your testosterone to increase within 20 minutes [13,14]. In those two studies, power posing for just a few minutes also dropped cortisol and boosted confidence. Its a great way to start your day, or to give yourself an edge before a job interview or a big presentation. They dont call it warrior pose for nothing!

Hacking your testosterone influences everything from body composition to energy levels to mood. Its easy to eat more butter; its hard to visit a doctor and get tested, but thats what I recommend: know your levels. If youre 25, youll know what your target is when youre 35. By the time youve noticed symptoms of low testosterone, its too late to get your normal measurements!

So enjoy this information, get some data, and try some upgrades! Have a great week and thanks for reading. And watch out for the boys if you have them.

Why You Should Never, Ever Treat Low Testosterone with …

Why bother to take nutrients that boost testosterone? Why not take testosterone directly?

The short answer is:

testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) can be extremely hazardous to your health. Its much safer to attain higher T levels by taking nutrients proven to boost testosterone production naturally within the human body than to consume the hormone

Heres the story

Testosterone replacement therapy is the intake of testosterone directly into your body where it then enters the bloodstream. The forms of TRT include injections, patches, gels, and pills. TRT was first made available as a patch, but it caused skin irritation in as many as one out of four men who wore the patches.

Men who used testosterone gel were warned to wash their hands after application and not allow anyone to touch them on the skin where the gel was applied. Reason: If a woman or child comes in contact with testosterone gel, it can cause side effects including hair growth and premature puberty.

Oral testosterone is available in Canada and Europe, but not in the U.S., where it is banned because directly ingesting testosterone can cause liver toxicity. The FDA classifies testosterone as a controlled substance, so it is more tightly regulated than vitamins and minerals.

Another mode of oral testosterone therapy, Striant, comes in a tablet that is applied to the upper gums. While it is more effective than patches at boosting testosterone levels, Striant can cause gum or mouth irritation, pain, and tenderness. Again, care must be taken to ensure no woman or child comes in contact with the hormone.

But the prognosis for using TRT to boost declining testosterone levels gets worse. To begin with, testosterone therapy can elevate your red blood cell count. This in turn can thicken the blood, putting you at greater risk for stroke and heart attack. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) examined 1,223 men with low testosterone levels who were about 60 years old.

The JAMA study found that those men in the group who took testosterone replacement therapy had a 30% increase in risk of stroke and heart attack vs. men in the group who did not do TRT. Other side effects of testosterone therapy can include sleep apnea, acne, and gynecomastia male breast enlargement.

While there is little evidence of any link between testosterone therapy and prostate cancer, some physicians believe the issue is still on the table and urge patients getting TRT to check their PSA levels once or twice a year.

Another study, published in the New England Journal of American, examined the effect of testosterone gel in men 65 and older. It was discontinued when participants experienced cardiac, respiratory, and skin problems. Many did, however, experience an increase in muscle strength before the study was halted.

Heres the worst thing about TRT: using a testosterone patch, pill, gel, or injection for even just a couple of weeks can shut down the natural testosterone-producing actions of your pituitary gland, hypothalamus, and gonads. Your body stops making testosterone, and your testicles decrease in size. And the longer you stay on testosterone replacement therapy, the more difficult it is for your body to resume natural testosterone production should you ever stop using TRT. Yikes!

So what are we to conclude?

Countless clinical studies prove that low testosterone has many adverse effects including muscle loss, weight gain, low libido, irritability, fatigue, and mental decline. And, starting at around age 30, your testosterone levels decline with each passing year.

Yet reversing the decline by taking testosterone directly either ingesting it as a pill, through injection, or by applying a gel or patch is downright dangerous, risking liver toxicity, stroke, heart attack, and other ills.

The solution: Make some nutritional, exercise, and other lifestyle changes that can elevate your testosterone levels naturally. Take healthy nutrients herbs, amino acids, minerals, vitamins that trigger your body to produce new testosterone as nature intended.

And remember: only PrimeMale gives you the optimal dosages of the 12 key nutrients that in combination can quickly replenish your testosterone levels giving you all the male hormone you need to function at peak efficiency.

Free and weakly bound testosterone (FWBT), also referred to as bioavailable testosterone, is thought to reflect an individual’s biologically active, circulating testosterone. FWBT includes free testosterone and testosterone that is bound to albumin. FWBT does not include sex hormone binding globulin-bound testosterone. The SHBG-bound fraction is biologically inactive because of the high binding affinity of SHBG for testosterone. The rapid dissociation of weakly bound testosterone from albumin results in the availability of essentially all albumin-bound testosterone for steroid-receptor interaction.

There are several ways to determine if the dose/frequency of HCG while on TRT is effective: Performing a sperm count/quality test and/or measuring an upstream hormone to testosterone called 17-hydroxyprogesterone (17OH-P). TRT decreases 17OH-P and other upstream hormones due to the shut down of LH (LH is needed to activate the production of these hormones- See figure below). When using HCG plus TRT, upstream hormones like 17OH-P can be normalized. Several studies have found that 17OH-P blood level is correlated to ITT, so testing for this hormone could not only save time while optimizing HCG dose/frequency but also eliminate the need to perform testicular aspirations, a very difficult procedure to do. A 17OH-P level over 6.5 nmol/L (or 215 ng/dL) was found to normalize ITT while using HCG doses of 500 IU every other day plus testosterone enanthate injections given at 200 mg/week.

Renin is also called angiotensinogenase; its an enzyme produced by the kidneys to control aldosterone production. Its also essential in the reninangiotensin aldosterone system (RAAS) which maintains your bodys fluid balance and blood pressure.

PSA circulates through the body in two ways; bound to other proteins or by itself. Unbound PSA is called free PSA. A free-PSA test will measure the percentage of unbound PSA while a PSA test is used to measure the total of free and bound PSA in the blood. The free PSA is a defective variant of normal PSA that can no longer bind to other proteins and so circulates in the blood in the free form. Although the reason why this is the case is poorly understood – patients with prostate cancer may have lower free PSA levels than those with a benign prostate condition.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy Market is Anticipated to …

Apr 09, 2019 (Heraldkeeper via COMTEX) — New York, April 09, 2019: Global Testosterone Replacement Therapy Market is expected to exceed more than US$ 1.0 billion by 2024 at CAGR of 4% in the given forecast period.

The scope of the report includes a detailed study of global and regional markets of Testosterone Replacement Therapy Market. The reasons given for variations in the growth of the industry in certain regions.

Testosterone is responsible for the improvement of male sexual characteristics and this hormone formed by the testicles. It is also important to maintain various functions such as sexual function, bone growth, adequate levels of red blood cells, and a sense of well being and muscle bulk. Insufficient production of testosterone causes erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction occurs due to decreased testosterone production to overcome this testosterone replacement therapy is used to improve the problem. Testosterone replacement therapy occurs in various forms containing its own set of advantages and hazards such as subdemal pellets, transdemal patches and injections. Testosterone replacement therapy also helps to recover symptoms of low testosterone. Low testosterone is caused due to age growth it generally lowers down after the mid 30′s and further decreases accordingly to the age factor.

About – Testosterone Replacement Therapy

A few years ago I started getting depressed, losing muscle, gaining fat, getting injured easier, losing my sex drive and losing motivation at work. In short, my life was falling down around me for, apparently, no reason. I wondered What the hell is wrong with me! and when I couldnt take it anymore I went to see a doctor. The general family doctor was convinced it was depression and wanted to put me on antidepressants. Having never been the depressed type, I was convinced otherwise. I researched my symptoms online and discovered that they all matched that of low testosterone. I went back to the doctor for tests and indeed my testosterone levels were that of a 65 year old man. I was 31 at the time. He referred me to an endocrinologist who ran more tests.

These further tests revealed that my testes / testicles were fine, and an MRI revealed that my pituitary was fine. Apparently the third cog in that HPTA (Hypothalamus, Pituitary, Testicular Axis) was not producing the two hormones (LSH / FSH) that would instruct the pituitary to create the hormone (GnRH), which would would instruct the testes to create the hormone testosterone in adequate levels for someone of my age.

Why my hypothalamus decided to stop working full time, Ill never know. But I do know that within days of starting testosterone replacement therapy treatment all of my problems began to disappear. It was like magic.

However well it worked for me, I always try to remember that HRT for men has its own set of problems. Among them are an increased risk of prostate cancer and heart disease. More importantly, I dont like the idea of being dependent on a drug for my manhood. It bothers me. I think this is something a lot of male HRT / TRT patients experience, but I cant be sure since I dont really know any others personally. Maybe Ill meet some after starting this website

Another thing that scares me is that one day I wont be able to get my prescription filled for one reason or another. Maybe it will be for lack of health insurance (I live in the US and Im sure youve heard about our insurance woes here), or maybe every doctor in my area will be afraid of the boogeyman steroids because theyve watched too many after-school dramas and ESPN scandals. This dependance bothers me more than anything, because I know Ill lapse into severe depression, fat gain, lethargy, and generally just be miserable if Im not taking my testosterone.

Heres something else that troubles me: My testes are fine or they were, at least. But when you introduce external sources of testosterone into the male body all natural production ceases completely as the body seeks to reach homeostasis. In the process the testes stop working, and this is why bodybuilders have grapenuts so to speak. I have secondary hypogonadism. But the treatment for this is the same as primary hypogonadism. The treatment, testosterone replacement therapy, CAUSES primary hypogonadism in men with secondary hypogonadism. Are you telling me there arent any treatments for low FSH/LH without having to mess around with other parts of my HTPA?

Dont worry if you dont know what the hell Im talking about you soon will. Just keep reading my blog and all will be revealed. Im sort of a research junkie when it comes to what Im putting in my body.

Soooo, the longer Im on this stuff, the less chance I have of recovering. But I spent three years miserable, tired, angry, depressed, with a deteriorating body before finally going on HRT, which practically got rid of all of my syptoms overnight. Ive felt like a million bucks ever since. So the idea of going back to low testosterone scares the sh*t out of me.

On the other hand, I could stay on HRT for the rest of my life, which if I live to be of average age would be even long than Ive been alive so far. Thats a long time for someone to be on HRT, and at that point I wonder what the risks would be. Has it even been studied for such a long period of time? The good news is Id have the testosterone of a 35 year old into my 60s, which would be pretty sweet if my wife doesnt get too fat (just kidding sort of). Of course, that doesnt do me much good if Im dying of prostate cancer or have a heart attack.

So this is my journey and judging by how many patients my endo says he sees everyday, I am sure Im not alone. Call it a blog, an information resource, a support center, a launching pad, whatever But Im glad you stopped by, and if youre on HRT or thinking about going on HRT I hope this site can provide some value.

Transhumanism: Will This Be How Humanity Destroys Itself …

Transhumanism is promising eternity, but it may be the way humanity destroys itself by sacrificing everything that makes us human.

is the intentional merging of man with machine. It the movement to augment or enhance humanity by meldingsynthetic, machine-like parts to the human body. It is driven to make man more precise, logical, analytic and knowledgeable by making man more robotic. Transhumanism is a highly dangerous movement that reminds me of a little kid playing with fire. We have no idea where this is going to take us, yet we race blindly on, believing that if we can, we must. Thats themaxim of misguided science: if we can do it, we will do it, no matter what. No matter if millions of people die from an atomic bomb. Many authors, film directors, artists and visionaries have foreseen and warned about the danger of an AI (Artificial Intelligence) system that becomes self-aware, decides it doesnt want humans to live and kills them all. So we need to ask ourselves: will transhumanism be how humanity destroys itself?

Transhumanism is selling the idea that you can plug yourself into a supercomputer and become all-powerful, all-knowing, immortal a god. Its promoting the idea that humanity can have a future without death.

The situation reminds me of the Garden of Eden. Now, I am not a Christian (I think almost all religions contain some truth but have gotten bogged down in a ton of dogma), howeverI do think the Garden of Eden is a highly symbolicstory. Traditional Christianity interprets the story as proof of mans sinful nature, and to some extent uses it to justify judgement and punishment of those who are curious and seek knowledge. However I think a more profound understanding is that the ejection of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden symbolizes mankinds fall into a lower state of consciousness. We used to live in a time where we felt and experienced our divine nature more, where we felt more connected to each other, to Nature and to the Earth, but we have descended into more separation. And, deep down, all of us feelthetremendous pain and suffering in that separation.

What makes transhumanism so scary is that it is like trying to take a second bite of the apple.It is trying desperately to return to that state of higher consciousness, to make up for the disconnection, but in doing so, it is pushing us further away from Who We Really Are.People are trying to overcome the primal pain of disconnection by voluntarily chipping themselves, as though that would restore connection, but all its doing is denying our own humanity and making us more robotic.

To believe Heaven and Hell are literal places you go to after you die, full of milk and honey or fire and brimstone, is a very shallow and limited way of understanding those concepts. Adeeper way to comprehend them is to realize they are states of being. They are states of consciousness. They are something you feel and experience in this lifetime on this planet. We can have Heaven on Earth or Hell on Earth depending upon how we use our powers of creation here.

The best way to describe Hell is when you get trapped in a creation of your own making which isexactly what iscoming down the pipes when blindly enthusiastic transhumanists suggest we create virtual or digital worlds, create avatars in which to navigate these worlds, and then transfer our consciousness to these avatars and become gods. The point is tolive forever in a digital world as an omnipotentimmortal. The reality, I suggest, could be very different; we would lose all our sovereignty and individuality andbecome mindless drones, just another digital brick in the wall or electronic cog in the giant machine. This is exactly the kind of situation that the megalomaniac Controllers already running our world want: one where it is would literally be impossible to think differently to how the hive-mind or the State wants you to think.

Firstly, transhumanismisrooted in a lack of self-knowledge. We already are immortal. Every human being is a unique soul or consciousness, a spiritual being on a human journey. Theres nothing we need to do to become immortal. Why are we chasing the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow instead of looking inside of ourselves? Why are we constantly looking outside for solutions rather than getting in touch with our true essence?

Secondly, transhumanism is steeped in the denial of death. It tries topatch up the body with metallic and plastic parts to avoid the body breaking down, decaying and dying as it naturallydoes. Transhumanism is a mentality which is so focused on creating an augmented bio-vessel whichnever wears out that it fails to accept the natural cycle of birth and rebirth, of living and dying, that surrounds us in Nature. A healthy acceptance of deathcan be a powerful teacher to help you get more out of life and cut through petty grievances. Many spiritual traditions teach that living in constant knowledge of ones impending death is the best motivator there is to be the best you can be.

In conclusion, transhumanism is a dangerously misguided philosophy.It is so appealing to those who love technology or who have not fully accepted the reality of death as a part of life. Yet, if we collectively go down the transhumanistic road, we risk sacrificing everything about ourselves that makes us great our emotions andfeelings, our unique thoughts and perspectives, our passion in exchange for a fake immortality and emotionless subsistence.

Transhumanism: A Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas

The modern Victor Frankenstein holds a high political office, carries diplomatic immunity, and is most likely funded by the largest corporations worldwide. His method is ancient: alchemy. His fraternities are well known and their secrets are well kept, but his goal of times past and present is the same; he dares to become as god, genetically manipulating the seeds of the earth, the beasts on the fields, and to claim legal ownership over humanity by re-creating it in his own image. This is no fairy tale, science fiction, or conspiracy theory it simply is!

Transhumanism, a Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas by Dr.’s. Joseph P. Farrell and Scott D. de Hart lifts the veil from the macabre transhumanistic monster being assembled and exposes the hidden history and agenda that has set humanity on a collision course for the Apocalypse.

Joseph P. Farrell, PhD, is the author of the best-selling Genes, Giants, Monsters, and Men: The Surviving Elites of the Cosmic War and Their Hidden Agenda.
