Increasing testosterone

Recommended Posts

Often guys think they need to increase Testosterone when they experience lack of libido, impotence, balding symptoms. However, the other main hormone men require for sexual libido and performance is estrogen. 
Due to the use of plastic packaging for foods, biscuit wrappers, plastic drinking bottles etc, they contain xenoestrogenic chemicals in the plastic. This means these chemicals imitate estrogen, and sit on specific estrogen receptors of the cells, fooling the body there’s real estrogen on the receptors, so the gonads and adrenals dial-down their production of natural estrogen in men, thus leading to a deficiency in estrogen.

 

Another aspect is the food industry now use a hell of a lot of soy flour in place of wheat flour. There’s a lot more soy in all products. Soy is very estrogenic. Id stay away from soy if you have any hormone issues, both female and males. 

 

Estrogen is essential for sexual libido and maintaining erection. (Aswell as loads of other essential functions)
 

I, as a gal, had a few hormone issues, so researched  endocrinology for a decade - the amount of guys on the hormone forum i was on who were so confused because they had their testosterone levels measured and they were normal/high, yet they suffered from lack of libido and had impotence, mostly fairly young age guys. 
 

Studies and endocrinology specialists all know and show the vital role of real estrogen in men. One particular article by a specialist pinpointed the problem of estrogen deficiency in men with sexual issues, and berated the mainstream view many doctors hold prescribing testosterone to men willy-nilly (‘scuse the pun!) whenever they complain of impotence. 
 

Have your saliva T levels checked - not blood levels. You can find online ordering kits to measure hormones via saliva. Canary club are excellent. They do whole hormone panels for very excellent prices. Saliva also stores better in their solution for shipping than blood.

Saliva shows unbound hormone levels, therefore hormones available for the body to use. Blood levels show bound to proteins hormones and unbound hormone levels. Bound proteins are not able to be used until the body unbinds them. So blood results are skewed, and do not give an accurate picture of true hormone levels available for use in the body.

 

The way to tell if you have a lack of T is your mood and body. Do you struggle to gain muscle growth after consistent weight training? Is your hair thin, for men do you have hardly any leg/arm hair? Do you struggle to grow a full beard after age 25? Is your skin dry? Mood-wise, are you placid, easy-going, rarely feel and rarely express anger/frustration? Lastly, if you lack libido/erection AND answer Yes to some or all the questions, then you’re likely deficient in testosterone.

 

Abstaining from regular daily ejaculation would be the first step to increasing natural testosterone levels. Im not saying abstain completely as that’ll induce deficiency of hormones eventually! Thats not the goal. The body follow what stimulation its given. So daily ejaculation induces deficiency as its demanding the body to produce hormones and sperm at levels far too regularly than is ‘normal’. Especially as a man ages. Try once a week. Allow the body system to experience deep urge. 
 

Secondly do any activity involving lifting weights and using your muscles. That could be digging over the garden, DIY work at home, gym or home weight training. Any activity which pushes your physical endurance, flexion and strength, requires oomph-type will-power, which comes easier the more testosterone we have. Become very active.
 

Female athletes have very high testosterone levels and lower estrogen levels because they induce these levels via activity, specific hormone production. Adrenaline and testosterone build muscle. Estrogen promotes fat layers. Female athletes lose their breast mass, and gain muscularity. Literally via activity levels we can alter our hormone levels. 
 

Lastly, for the body to make any hormones there are nutritional co-factors the body needs to make these hormones. Without these nutrients we all experience deficiency despite ejaculation rates/sex activity and physical activity.

Most of these nutrients are sorely lacking in the modern processed, grain/soy based ‘modern’ diet we’re mostly encouraged to consume.

So start a supplement regime, or /and consume more fruits and lightly steamed/cooked veg/juices. Give yourself a zap of minerals and vitamins for hormone health!

 

Here’s a great depiction of nutrients needed by the body to be able to make natural Testosterone itself:

1) Your body organs are programmed to produce what and how much is needed. Keep the body healthy, well-fed and well-exercised and it has the innate intelligence to figure out what's needed to be manufactured and in what doses.

 

2) We do not really understand the mechanism of the above-mentioned intelligence---if the body is producing less of something (with normal diet and routine), it is sending a signal---or running according to a pre-program/ telling us something. Don't fight it. It will compensate by affecting other stuff. Rather try to understand the signal. Remember every person's journey here will follow a different path. Their hormones, physiology etc will change according to that intelligence. Not every one can or should have identical blood test levels for various things people test for. Try to judge your health more holistically. 

 

3) Apart from our focus on 5G and EMF and effects of 'shedding' on this thread--which one may or may not believe in 100%---there is something else in the 'ambient' surroundings. A risk of heart attack is highly likely for many people as a way to exit this 'world'. Testosterone in artificial doses will exacerbate that risk.

Thank you m754. Something you mentioned there - exercise. I do a lot of yoga and hiking - but I don't do any really physical or aggressive activity - maybe I should try some.

 

Edit: and I used to do loads of very hard physical exercise - I used to play loads of rugby. But I quit all that stuff - maybe the body misses it and is now a little bit out of line....

I am truly taken aback by your wealth of knowledge on this thread and other times I have asked a question and truly thank you.

 

I have so many other questions - I was brought up 3 meals a day/meat and veg +vit c type environment. 

 

Where can I go to start learning for myself this sort of stuff?

It really has been a long journey of acquiring intellectual knowledge from various authors/websites about biochemistry. The basic mechanics of biology, organ function - what nutrients are essential for what functions - that took me through the immune system, digestive health, endocrinology, neurology - its a never ending journey, and the body machine is so complex, there’s always more to learn. 

Its only relatively recently that bio-science has identified various crucial mechanisms/hormones/nutrients and their roles in the body - so its safe to assume there’s plenty more for science to yet discover and understand. 
 

However, the biggest lesson i learnt about achieving optimal health is that mind/consciousness health is CRUCIAL and foundational to having a healthy body. We can eat from the garden of Eden and bathe in sparkling spring waters, consume the most pure foods - BUT if the mentality of us and our life experiences bring discord / anguish/stress into our lives, we will never achieve physical health. 

I never intended to learn about mind-health connection - my question at the beginning was ‘what causes illness?’ - so having explored the body mechanisms/nutrition - there was a glaring gap of contradiction, in all cases of folk who ate very well, had a ‘great’ lifestyle but were still struggling with illness. There was evidently vastly more than the body/food angle to achieve health.

 

Then i had a massive, life-changing light-bulb experience which proved without a doubt the mind/consciousness connection being the absolute corner-stone of health and potentially the true healer of all body illness.

I experienced instant healing of a 25yr symptom-cluster, when my mind was made aware i had been lied to 25yrs ago, which is when the symptoms started. This lie, on the face of it was a ‘white lie’….yet i had made a massive decision about my life path based on this information. My ALL-MIND part of self knew the truth but my conscious ego mind didnt. So i experienced conflict of consciousness, without knowing it, for decades. Once the 2 consciousness parts became known, the rush of energy through my whole system, re-aligning to truth, was absolutely wonderful and intense. It was absolutely extraordinary. I felt phsycially every cell in my body re-align and re-energise. Like a tingling/sparkling throughout my whole being and literal energy flow going around my whole body. I had a HUGE upgrade of energy, was deeply calm and at peace. 
More experiences occurred to show me the metaphysical nature of consciousness/mind/ego/body structures and how they are all inter-dependent for optimal ultimate health.

 

Other researches since that time, exploring the mind/body metaphysical link has cemented the understanding of my own experience….which at the time i had no idea what was happening to me. 
I explored alternative healing modalities, energy healing etc - and came to understand why modalities such as acupuncture are useful to aid energy flow. 
Whatever blocks are in the mind system to absolute Truth, (truth on all levels of reality, not just ego truth) the body experiences a ‘knot’ relating to the metaphysical aspects of the mind issue.

Hence why cancer is sooo prevalent - a literal blob of cells gone awry, causing obstruction to the free-flowing energy and proper functioning of the body.

 

For example, a man i know, young, had developed lung cancer. Not a smoker, average lifestyle, no overt stress except usual. Married. I heard via a friend of his condition, whom i was helping with their elderly parents health issues. His wife contacted me about his cancer. Everyone but the man himself spoke FOR him about his life/problems. I began to see the issue with his health clearer. The voice and breath are our vocal expressive instruments. When we are suffocating we cant speak. This man was amidst people who he felt he couldnt speak openly. He needs to express himself vocally to heal himself. 

Not all ardent smokers get lung cancer, and most get lung cancer who have never smoked. Yet most smoke who have things to say but cant express them -(even subconsciously) and to de-stress to breathe slowly by smoking as a way to stop vocal vitriol. 
The common demoninator with lung issues is expression/vocal/freedom.

 

Another close friend had testicular cancer at age 28. Insanely healthy diet, extremely health conscious. Never smoked drank…all organic food, vegan., exercises etc. Yet has sexual issues. He openly discusses this with me so i have insight. He’s non-sexual and his consciousness complex cannot come to a peaceful place about sexuality. I helped with various healing modalities, also helping him find a more positive attitude about self-care and love, did energy healings, and he embarked on a cleansing regime/supplement regime. He doesnt /never had females in his life that show him nurturing, care, or love and he therefore didnt care much for himself - i became that nurturer and remain supportive to him, while also helping him love and care for himself. 
The cancer had spread before our alternative plan of treatment and chemo was urged by his oncologist…it was fast growing and spreading. After 8 or so weeks of alternative treatment he scanned clear! I too was truly shocked, and sooo happy for him. His oncologist thought he had picked up the wrong file and went to check, not believing that type of cancer to be cureable. 
We had managed to get to the knot within his psyche and unpick it with him having someone who cared, but mostly for him caring and helping himself. He’s still clear 14yrs later, while willingly maintaining care for himself.
 

Mother-in-law broke her right ankle after death of a close relative she was very emotionally dependent on. Legs are to do with the path we walk in life, and our decisions about what journey in life to walk. Right side is active conscious ego/left - brain thinking - and she voiced she didnt know what path to follow in life at that point, as she always followed the path of her relative. The relative always decided. So that way of operating in her life literally broke upon the death of her relative. She literally couldnt walk forward with a broken ankle. Her psyche showed it outwardly which meant others temporarily had to be her emotional crutch once again, while she grieved and adjusted to her life change.

 

Of course, mind/body health matters doesnt mean if you’re consciousness/mind complex is balanced and experiencing a beautiful life - but youre drinking water tainted with lead, unbeknownst to you - that you’ll not get ill. Yet, you wont be as ill as the person with a stressful life, low self-esteem, and a wonky ego-complex. So mind DOES matter and is very key to our health. 
If we were ‘enlightened’ of mind and ate mcdonalds daily, and drank whiskey - the body will suffer from nutrient depletion/weight issues and a depleted liver, we’d look crappy…the only difference would be the lack of suffering as the enlightened mind wouldnt care how it ‘looks’. Its a bad example because the enlightened mind wouldnt eat mcdonals daily and drink whiskey non-stop to be in drunken stupor - but you get my drift. 
 

I was going to talk about the metaphysical aspects of testosterone in my post to you MrH, but thought id stick with the physical aspect as that often is very wonky in our modern lifestyle, and worth addressing aswell as the metaphysical -  especially the xenoestrogens from food packaging and soy, that cause ‘man boobs’ in men and all sorts of related hormone wonkiness.

 

Metaphysically, male hormone health can be focused on by considering your sexuality and how you feel about it. Have you had previous sexual experiences which affected you negatively?  How do you consider yourself generally as a man? My vegan testicular cancer friend i mentioned, whenever i refer to him as a ‘man’, just in conversation, hates it. This is because the ‘socially acceptable’ man image is something he doesn’t relate to at all. 

I knew a man who told me about a sexual experience where he was made fun of by a woman, regarding his genitalia. He became impotent at a young age. Just 1 incident…1 night, and unkind comments , can silently, secretly, scar the ego-psyche-complex. 
 

Equally, a stud-type man, a bonking brotha from bonkdom!…could also experience hormone imbalance due to the excessive activity, caused by whatever ego-psyche-issue. Over-compensation for feeling inadequate at a core level.  
 

It’s worth considering our gender and sexuality with any hormone issues or libido issues - and really try to get deep within ourselves to identify any aspects which could have caused gender/sexual confidence problems. 
Experiencing cheating partners is a common theme with sexuality imbalances. Whatever impacts the emotions tends to affect the body chemistry strongly.


One man I know struggled with literally gender issues and was gay half his life and was going to have a sex change. His mother dressed him in girls clothes and wanted a girl. 
Her inacceptance of his gender since babyhood, conditioned him subtly to also not accept his gender. Mid-life he had an epiphany night before gender surgery and walked away from his confused gender life to get married twice, have kids, contented.

 

Considering these aspects of our known gender experiences/sexuality experiences and healing them by recognising them in the mind, accepting them, forgiving hurt caused, if any, goes a long way toward helping heal physical sex hormone imbalance. Process this stuff within like a self-counselling session. 
 

By focusing on body health and mind/emotional health is essential for that ‘optimal’ health experience.

Live as much as you can like a self-sufficient, multi-skilled caveman who has to apply their knowledge to problem solve instead of being a pampered, one-trick soyboy who is: ruled by their feels, mentally and emotionally retarded and micro-managed by various layers of authority

 

In short refuse everything, you feasibly can, that the corporations are pushing on you including smart phone that irradiates your balls

I was going to talk about the metaphysical aspects of testosterone in my post to you MrH, but thought id stick with the physical aspect as that often is very wonky in our modern lifestyle, and worth addressing aswell as the metaphysical -  especially the xenoestrogens from food packaging and soy, that cause ‘man boobs’ in men and all sorts of related hormone wonkiness.

 

Metaphysically, male hormone health can be focused on by considering your sexuality and how you feel about it. Have you had previous sexual experiences which affected you negatively?  How do you consider yourself generally as a man? My vegan testicular cancer friend i mentioned, whenever i refer to him as a ‘man’, just in conversation, hates it. This is because the ‘socially acceptable’ man image is something he doesn’t relate to at all. 

I knew a man who told me about a sexual experience where he was made fun of by a woman, regarding his genitalia. He became impotent at a young age. Just 1 incident…1 night, and unkind comments , can silently, secretly, scar the ego-psyche-complex. 
 

Equally, a stud-type man, a bonking brotha from bonkdom!…could also experience hormone imbalance due to the excessive activity, caused by whatever ego-psyche-issue. Over-compensation for feeling inadequate at a core level.  
 

It’s worth considering our gender and sexuality with any hormone issues or libido issues - and really try to get deep within ourselves to identify any aspects which could have caused gender/sexual confidence problems. 
Experiencing cheating partners is a common theme with sexuality imbalances. Whatever impacts the emotions tends to affect the body chemistry strongly.


One man I know struggled with literally gender issues and was gay half his life and was going to have a sex change. His mother dressed him in girls clothes and wanted a girl. 
Her inacceptance of his gender since babyhood, conditioned him subtly to also not accept his gender. Mid-life he had an epiphany night before gender surgery and walked away from his confused gender life to get married twice, have kids, contented.

 

Considering these aspects of our known gender experiences/sexuality experiences and healing them by recognising them in the mind, accepting them, forgiving hurt caused, if any, goes a long way toward helping heal physical sex hormone imbalance. Process this stuff within like a self-counselling session. 
 

By focusing on body health and mind/emotional health is essential for that ‘optimal’ health experience. 

 

 

 

 

Thanks for your post very helpful. Reminds me of a few things.

 

1. What one of my teachers told me. Although it's better to eat well, the more important thing is that you enjoy your food!

2. I have been involved in many alternative therapies myself - but never really appreciated how it works and you have helped confirm that. That is regular therapies and treatments focus on the external world and solutions only - but the inner world is just as important. Especially the story that you hold and I have witnessed and healed people in the past from getting them in a state - and then changing their story. A lot of disease in my experience in this field is attached to the stories that we hold - that we then re-experience as memory flashbacks, and it's these flashbacks that spark a response in the body that then causes illness.

 

As is often the case, although I have healed others I have not focused much on myself. And you are correct in your assessment - in that I have had some sexual trauma in the past - which I have never really dealt with - and perhaps it's time to do so and perhaps this is why I'm having some problems. Sometimes easier to focus and help others and avoid your own problems in my case! I won't go into details here as it's a bit embarrassing but I thank you so much for directing me to look at myself and the stories that I hold.

Does anyone know how you can increase your testosterone levels naturally?

 

TY.

 

Physical exercise such as running or hiking and weight training.... That would be my suggestion.....

It’s a lot easier to be neutral, an outsider, and someone tell us their story, for us to see glaring aspects which could have been problematic, so thus can aid healing, due to being neutral and ‘outside’ their personal situation. 
With our own stuff, its inherently difficult because we’re IN it….like we can’t see the forest for the trees. Like you said, we hold so many stories as a part of ‘who we are’ as ego-complexes. The older we are, generally the more stories we have…until its quite the weighty tome! , literally weighing us down, affecting our optimal health state and ultimately inhibiting our inherent natural energetic flow of ‘Life Force’.

 

When i had hormones go awry, i explored my perceptions and perspectives on every sexual and gender angle. I was trying to see where i was imbalanced in my thinking. Then i could take those wonky perceptions and think upon those deeper, the source of the perceptions. Most times it was due to life experiences and social conditioning. 
 

I have a funny story, yet it also highlights a pathway of self-healing.

When i was a teen, a remark by a male about my butt being big in swimming class, utterly astounded me. I was offended because i never ever thought, out of all my body parts, or adolescence physical insecurities, my butt was too big! If anything, it was small to normal! So this worried young me. I thought if i can’t see my butt is big, what else can’t i see about my body that’s ‘not normal’?! Physical body insecurities normally start with some off-hand comment the person didnt even mean. 

 

So i shelved the butt complex, as no-one else ever mentioned my big butt, and kids are obnoxious enough that if my butt was really huge, i’d knew someone would say something. 
 

Then age 18, skinny waif-life tall me shopping in camden market for clothes…in a little boutique shop run by a large black lady (this description is purely factual yet necessary for the next part of the story, for context!)…im chatting to her …she makes all the clothes…im complimenting her designs etc….then pick out some trousers. Try them on, but the waist is huge, and hanging down at the back, like a REALLY big butt could only fill these trousers. I show the fit to her and she says, cocking her head to one side and inspecting my butt “hmmm, well you’ve got a fairly cushioned butt there honey, if you were a different shape, they’d fit better” !!

I look at her, again, like my young teen self in swimming class, gobsmacked….HER butt was ‘fairly cushioned’ and these trousers needed a humongous butt to fill them, while having skinny long 36” legs. The cut was all wrong and rather than admit that, she used my butt as the anomoly in this whole episode!

 

But that was it, having a black mamma with a hefty butt state my skinny white ass butt was cushioned piqued my curiosity once again, and after exiting the shop, prompted me to ask my boyfriend, who I was shopping with, THE question of all questions!:

 “Darlin’? Is my butt big?”

”ummm well…nah…mmm, i’ve never really thought so…no, naaah…its juuuuuust riiiiight” followed by a beaming smile once he thought he’d figured out the best words! 😆

 

I knew his opinion wasn’t worth reckoning on, considering his position, so once again, me and my ‘big’ butt had a curious love/hate relationship. I wasn’t overtly concerned when i got older, as most trousers fitted me! If anything the butt material was always too baggy. Definitely not a big butt. 😜

Once sexual maturity was well established i felt very confident physically, and didnt question my body parts, even if they weren’t normal. I actually love quirky stuff, especially sizing of things. Extreme small or large of anything tickles my fancy, i literally marvel such things and i’m not prejudice on shape/size…it is what it is, afterall! 
I never could look at anything and declare absolute beauty or ugliness, as there is always some part ‘quirky’ in the beautiful, and some part extremely gorgeous within the ‘conventional ugly’. 


Bullies at school would call kids with thick glasses ‘four eyes’, while i am marvelling at the shape of their lips and beautiful hair colour. The kids taunted for being fat, i’d notice their beautiful fingernails, and exquisite vocal expression. 

I dont call anything ugly personally….i know why something is called ugly, because its different from resembling ‘normal’.

My attitude developed as i was aging that judging anything by how it looks isn’t needed, for life to be joyful. I accepted my body because i accepted the bodies of all others. I grew out of judging what i see, quite rapidly. 
My big butt complex, questioning my physicality, dissolved naturally along the way of growing into physical acceptance of all others. 
 

Now…we’re in a world where women are getting implants to have extremely large derrières, as its the fashion of the times! 
 

The above process wasn’t conscious healing. It is only on reflection i can see how i personally overcame any issues of my physicality, by developing acceptance of all others bodies. 
We get into the realms of understanding what issues we have with others, also reflect in our lives and affect us. Its a way for us to personally experience what we project out into the world. Interpersonal karma occurring, in essence. 
 

Our personal conscious healing journey is similar, and quicker than the slow, unconscious path of normal life. We identify a personal issue…see if it relates to our perspective on the world in any way. Identifying this, seeing it, making that connection is a part of the healing, in and of itself. We ‘see’ ourselves, affecting ourselves. To heal our issue, we have to eradicate our perception/judgement we project out to the world. 
 

For example, if i call my co-worker lazy…and i ‘have a thing’ about laziness in people generally…its a judgement. If i start struggling with energy problems, it shouldnt be much of a surprise. I probably then start to flake out after work, and then get my partner calling me a ‘lazy butt’. I take great offence as im IN my ‘forest story’, and cant see clearly the lessons going on for my personal development. I then do experience a real struggle with energy and stop calling my co-worker lazy, as i start to wonder, if, like me, they struggle with energy too. My attitude changes, i become more understanding/compassionate and learn to not just jump to judgements about others/the world, as there’s often a reason they/it are the way they are. Acceptance creeps in. As this attitude beds into my ego-complex awareness, i start to find my energy levels return. 
 

The above is a simplified view of the process, but highlights how thorough healing brings in aspects of our personal issues relating to our attitude about ‘out there’ either in another person, a community, or the world. It’s very easy to just think a physical problem has a physical cause, yet the mind can alter the body, but the body cannot alter the mind. Therefore mind is stronger at causing change. 

I had libido issues experiencing unknown infidelity. Lies cause physical illness quite readily because THE higher ‘all-seeing’ part of our mind - ( unconscious to the conscious ego mind) - literally knows the truth of ANY situation, and the ego-mind is thinking the truth is ‘my partner is faithful’ - so there’s a literal conflict of consciousness. ANY conflict of consciousness can easily cause illness, mental and/or physical. Once the truth was known, and accepted….not fought with (very important, our reactions to lies determines how we heal) my libido returned! 
 

R.D Laing, a scottish psychotherapist, knew intimately how these aspects of our life experiences/judgements/truths impacted our mental and physical health. He was a renegade in the field of psychotherapy for utilising left-field techniques to treat mental illness. 
The poignant story he presented to illustrate his theory of understanding the psyche using a more ‘whole life’ outlook, was of a boy with schizophrenia he was treating. A teenager. Laing interviewed the mother too, aswell as provide therapy for the boy. During the mother sessions Laing learnt that the boys father, mothers current husband, wasnt the boy’s biological father. He insisted to the mother the boy be made aware of the truth. She was resistant initially due to her own shame and fears,  but eventually the boy was told the truth that the man who he thought and treated like his real dad his whole life, wasn’t his father. His schizophrenia resolved quickly soon after. 
 

This case, and other cases like it, truly highlight the complex nature of mind/beliefs/judgements - and when we are wrong, without knowing it, can cause our psyche and/or health to swerve off-kilter. 
 

EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED. HIGHER MIND KNOWS THIS - EGO MIND THINKS EVERYTHING IS SEPARATE - that’s it’s PRIMARY mistake, that causes humanity much suffering.

Thanks. I do loads of hiking but I don't do any really physical exercise after I was told not to by a Dr years ago who claimed I had arthritis in my elbow- even though my elbow doesn't feel 100% I still today haven't had any major issues with it despite this diagnosis. So may start to explore the possibility that I don't have it and maybe it's time to try out some physical exercise again and maybe use a support- I used to love it.
