19 May Is Testosterone Therapy Dangerous: Truths & Myths
WHAT MEN NEED TO KNOW ABOUT TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
You, along with millions of men around the world, have been lied to about the clinical usage of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) especially in the context of health and longevity. You’ve been deluged with an endless stream of marketing gimmicks and hyperbolized ad campaigns all designed to sell you the latest and greatest “testosterone booster” supplement.
KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT TESTOSTERONE
What if we told you nearly every one of them is a total scam? In fact, they are nothing more than unproven snake oil sold to millions of unsuspecting men just like you who believe and buy into the hype. The only thing these supplements have ever done is empty your bank account. You’ve been fed a constant stream of misinformation and utter nonsense ever since the DEA deemed testosterone a controlled substance in 1990.
Why? There are many assumed reasons. None of them matter. It’s now the end of 2017 and it’s entirely LEGAL and acceptable for you (when suffering from a Testosterone deficiency) to be scripted Testosterone by a physician. However, we strongly suggest that you start with a functional/internist medicine physician who specializes in testosterone treatment, like doctor, Rudolph Eberwein MD.
TESTOSTERONE AND MALE PATTERN BALDNESS
Lie – You are going to prematurely lose all your hair and go bald
Truth: Male pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia) is a genetic predisposition and not caused by exogenous testosterone usage.
Baldness, otherwise known as ‘male pattern baldness’ (MPB), is genetic. Using Testosterone Replacement Therapy can undoubtedly exacerbate or speed up hair loss for those prone to it via testosterone converting into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The idea of losing hair is terrible to deal with for many men. However, there are numerous medications men take to prevent thinning hair from receding entirely. The most popular are Propecia or supplements like Saw Palmetto.
PROBLEMS WITH PROPECIA
The active ingredient in Propecia is Finasteride which is a 5-alpha-reductase (5AR) inhibitor. It works by blocking the enzymes that naturally convert testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The problem with 5AR inhibitors is not only do they inhibit the testosterone molecule itself (lessening many of the positive effects) it also reduces libido (sex drive) and weakens erections. In addition, Propecia may also reduce fertility and lower sperm count. That is why we like to use an alternative natural source like Saw Palmetto to prevent these side effects. If your hair is that important to you, we also recommend a topical application form to affect hair at the root directly, like a patented form we offer called M82 by Hair Science. We’ve seen incredible results with the combination of Saw Palmetto and M82 combined.

IS TESTOSTERONE THERAPY DANGEROUS?
Absolutley not! There’s a lot of misconceptions about Testosterone Replacement Therapy. Dr. Eberwein explains in the videos below:
“When I was in medical school in the 90’s, Testosterone was completely out, they said nope, it causes prostate cancer. That was based on 1 study. Since then we have NUMEROUS studies that shows testosterone is good for the prostate, good for heart health, good for bone health… So when I see patients a lot of what I do is education. Showing them that what you’ve heard and even what a lot of physicians know, it’s more that they’re repeating what they’ve heard in the past. That’s what I do with my patients. I educate them, I empower them to even go look for the information themselves. This is because an educated and empowered patient is what we really want in our practice. This is because we know you’ll do better. But what we do with our practice will really educate patients on why you should be on this. Not just to look good, again most patients come to us because they want to look good, they want better erections. That’s great! But I am going to show you why you should do it for health reasons.”
