TMHS 080: Protect Your Sex Hormones! 10 Ways To Boost Testosterone Naturally (Essentials For Men’s AND Women’s Health)

Experts call it “estrogen pollution”. We are living in an era where we are bombarded with estrogenic compounds, and the health effects are extremely disturbing.

This is problem for all of us. Both men and women have estrogen receptors. These receptors are present throughout our entire bodies, from our brains to our reproductive organs. If your body is in balance, then you are producing the correct amount of estrogen endogenously (within yourself) and it’s fitting nice and snug into those receptor sites and life is good.

The problem is, our exposure to xenoestrogens (foreign estrogens from outside of yourself) are at an all-time high today. These xenoestrogens can fit right into the receptor sites for estrogen in your body and “turn on” programs that more estrogen will encourage.

For men this could mean lowered sex drive, accumulation of fat on the butt and hips, gynecomastia (man-boobs), shrinking of the reproductive organs, and many other red alerts.

For women this could lead to estrogen dominance which encourages cancers of the breasts, ovaries, and other reproductive organs, fibroid tumors, depression, decreased sex drive, and very difficult to get-rid-of body fat.

How is all of this possible with just one hormone being off? Well, it’s because your hormones control EVERYTHING about your physiology and how every cell in your body communicates with each other. It’s a pretty important roll, and if just one set of hormones is off, then every other hormone will be out-of-sync accordingly.

In steps testosterone.

Testosterone is commonly known as the “male hormone”, but that description is far too general. Every human being on the planet is dependent upon the proper function of testosterone. Yes, women have a lower percentage of testosterone than men, but it’s critical for many of the essential processes in a woman’s life. You’re going to learn about all of them today.

To help yourself be the strongest, fittest, healthiest, happiest person you can possibly be, then you’ve got to understand the role of testosterone and how to avoid exposure to the xenoestrogens we’re subjected to in our world today.

    Hey Shawn, another great podcast 🙂
    I would really appreciate it if you could answer my question about something. I have PKD (polysystic kidney diseae) which I inherited, and I really want to know if eating a certain way will keep my kidneys from failing? There seems to be so many natural and alternative cures for other disease, but nothing about this one.
    Thank you very much.

    Hi Shawn,

    I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on marijuana. I have trouble with stress and sleeping and have been told that marijuana would help. I am so confused and overwhelmed by all the information for and against it’s use. I’d appreciate hearing your take on the issue.
