I want to share something very important with you… which I need to share in today’s article because I got an email recently and it seems to be a common problem and I don’t want you to make the same mistake.

“I’m doing everything right Dr. Sam and my testosterone, libido, erectile problems, belly fat and so forth haven’t improved at all. I’ve taken a few supplements that increase my testosterone levels. Most didn’t do anything and the ones that did just stopped working after like a week or two. And then I increased the dosage and then things seem to get worse. When I got off of the various “testosterone boosting supplements”, my situation was even WORSE. I was losing hair, my libido was the lowest it’s been ever and I’m tired all day long. What am I doing wrong?… I thought increasing my testosterone will fix these problems but it’s made it worse.”
This is a very common situation I hear all the time.
The problem is that you can’t ONLY try and increase your testosterone. Your body will quickly adapt by changing around your other hormones, especially if you’re over the age of 30 and certainly in your 40’s a beyond.
For example, let’s say some herb or supplement increases your testosterone… soon your body will adapt by increasing SHBG. This will then LOWER your “free testosterone”, which does all the good stuff.
The next problem is that the increase in testosterone will convert more to estrogen and other female hormones such as Prolactin. This will now tell your brain and then your testicles to LOWER testosterone… because as estrogen goes up, testosterone goes down.
The next problem is that the extra testosterone also converts to DHT – the balding and prostate hormone. And this, just like estrogen, will LOWER testosterone.
Additionally, all of this causes stress to your endocrine system and your stress hormone Cortisol goes up. This does the exact opposite of Testosterone.
There are other changes too… but this is phase 1.
IF you’re not blocking these other hormones at the same time, the initial increase in your testosterone from the supplement you were taking will be TEMPORARY and will soon, go back down again and now your left with LOWER testosterone but also HIGHER “negative” hormones such as female, DHT, cortisol and so forth.
THIS is why you’re having problems. THIS is why most supplements don’t work.
They’re poorly designed by someone who has no understanding of how the human body works.
Anyway, I wanted to keep this article short .. just to let everyone know that it’s NOT your fault if you experience these problems.
That increasing your testosterone ONLY, will NOT “fix” your problems and will in fact, make them worse in the long run.
With that said, I’m not going to leave your empty handed.
Please find the link below, where I have revealed all the details of how to fix all of these little issues, so it doesn’t turn into a big problem.
