Get to Know Your Testosterone
by Dr. Tracy Gapin

-----------

Testosterone levels in modern men are lower than any time in recorded history. This causes low libido, low energy, and a lack of lean muscle; but low T can also decrease your motivation, your concentration, and even your mental health.

So where has all the testosterone gone?

Diet and lifestyle are huge factors, of course, but most people are completely unaware of the endocrine disruptors that have crept their way into our food, water, and homes. Everything from your shampoo to your takeaway coffee cup contributes to the hormonal dysregulation of our population. Left unchecked, many men lose their lust for life, in all senses, decades too soon.

On this week’s podcast, you’ll meet a medical doctor who is passionate about educating men and helping them navigate the hormonal minefield of our modern world.  

Listen & Learn: 

  • Why free testosterone is even more important than total testosterone
  • How to understand medical reference ranges
  • Self-assessment tricks for thinking about your own hormones 
  • Xenoestrogens, phytoestrogens, and other disruptor landmines
