His Hormonal Help! Relationship expert Dr. Molly Barrow

Has anyone ever suggested that you could be hormonal and are you a guy? What is up with that!

It is difficult to separate mental and emotional problems from other physical symptoms. It is necessary for a therapist to work in conjunction with medical doctors to test the hormonal levels of people before ever sending someone to a psychiatrist for "psychotropics" like antidepressants or anti anxiety medicines. A good doctor and a good lab are necessary to uncover your readings and make a recommendation for supplementation.

At a recent lecture by Blaine Crandall, M.D. to introduce his new book Estrogen Revisited: Lifelong and Fearless, he debunked all the negative misinformation about women taking hormones. Crandall was recognized as one of the BEST DOCTORS IN AMERICA, and was presented the prestigious “2003 Physician of the Year” award by the U.S. Senate. He is a strong proponent of replacement therapy and has given testimony to the U.S. Senant to try to undo the harm recent bogus studies did to women's confidence in replacement therapy. As a man's testosterone begins to dwindle the chance that he develops diabetes apparently goes up. But a drop or two of the male hormone testosterone seems to lower the chance of developing diabetes, as well as increase vitality, muscle tone and desire. Crandall says:

"The average life expectancy of women was 42 until 1890, and only reached 50 in 1910. With the advent of public sanitation, immunization and antibiotics, women and men live well into their eighties. Women, however, stop making estrogen at about age 50. Epidemiologists point out that menopause is natural! Just as natural as low thyroid and diabetes, but we do not hesitate to replace those hormones. Estrogen is necessary for sexual, physical and mental health. Bio-identical Hormones allow physicians to test and prescribe exactly what a woman’s body made her whole life, safely and fearlessly. "

Doctors are treating men now with this new knowledge that includes the importance of maintaining your hormones at peak levels. You know if and when your testosterone began to fade. Perhaps you sometimes look at younger men with envy for their energy and biceps, but according to Dr. Crandall you can change that - you do not have to get left behind. Find a doctor who is experienced in hormone replacement therapy. Ask an active older women that you trust for the name of her expert doctor. This is progressive and advanced medicine, so shop carefully and avoid "old school mindsets."

You will have to take a minimally humiliating test that involves drooling into a vial. The tests are almost the same for men and women. With a simple blood test, or from only your saliva, experts in hormonal therapy can tell you whether or not you (and your spouse) are running on empty and could use some hormone help. perhaps, you could be delighted in the way that you feel and think like a younger you with only a few drops of replacement therapy. Asl your doctor for the right information for you.
