Hidden Causes of Low Testosterone
Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:
Testosterone is found in both men and women and it is vital for normal hormone function and libido. There are natural methods of helping the hormone system work normally so that the use of synthetic hormone therapy can often be avoided.
One cause of low testosterone (or Low T as it is sometimes called) is increased estrogen in our water supply. In 2004, researchers found male fish in the Boulder River who developed female sex organs due to too much estrogen in the water. Our water supply is full of medications such as antibiotics, pain relievers, heart drugs, epilepsy drugs, as well as hormones, because our water plants are not designed to remove them. Eighty percent of the streams in 30 states have shown to contain estrogens and chemicals that mimic estrogens.
Low testosterone can be caused by the body not eliminating circulating estrogen. Another cause is high levels of an enzyme which converts testosterone to estrogen.
What solutions are there for low testosterone?
• Do a healthy, natural detoxification program. We have a dynamite 21-day program that leaves you squeaky clean and feeling great.
• Eat lots of cruciferous vegetables — broccoli, broccoli sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, bok choy, Brussels sprouts and kale. Or, take Cruciferous Complete from Standard Process which is available in our office.
• Proanocyanidins such as grape seed extract and cranberries also help to keep troublesome hormones in check.
So…eat lots of these foods or get them in pill form so you can protect your testosterone levels.
Natural products for men only during the month of June, Men’s Health Month … I recommend a line of natural supplements, available only through doctors, called Standard Process that features a number of products which are extremely effective for encouraging healthy prostate and testes function.

Until next time…
