Highest Testosterone Levels Equals Lowest Risk For Cardiovascular Events

Testosterone levels are highest in men around age 25, and decline about 1.5% every year after that. While women experience a sudden loss of estrogen during menopause, men gradually lose their testosterone levels, and the condition has therefore been largely ignored until recently, when it was labeled “andropause”.

By supplementing men with low levels of testosterone, they can feel between 1o and 15 years younger, see high cholesterol levls decrease to normal, as well as elevated blood sugars, and as this study showed, decreased heart attacks and strokes. Another great aspect of hormone replacement therapy for men, is they will experience more energy and desire to exercise, take better care of themselves, lose belly fat and experience weight loss, enjoy increased libido, general feelings of well being and overall enjoy their life more. Imagine feeling 10 years younger!

Prostate Cancer

According to the CDC, Not counting some forms of skin cancer, prostate cancer in the United States is:

  • The most common cancer in men, no matter your race or ethnicity.
  • The second most common cause of death from cancer among white, African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, and Hispanic men.
  • The fourth most common cause of death from cancer among Asian/Pacific Islander men.
  • More common in African-American men compared to white men.
  • Less common in American Indian/Alaska Native and Asian/Pacific Islander men compared to white men.
  • More common in Hispanic men compared to non-Hispanic men.
  • In 2007 (the most recent year for which numbers are available)—
  • 223,307 men in the United States were diagnosed with prostate cancer.
  • 29,093 men in the United States died from prostate cancer

Symptoms of prostate cancer are:

  • Difficulty starting urination
  • Weak or interrupted flow of urine
  • Frequent urination, especially at night
  • Difficulty emptying the bladder completely
  • Pain or burning during urination
  • Blood in the urine or semen
  • Pain in the back, hips, or pelvis that doesn’t go away
  • Painful ejaculation

If you have any these symptoms, be sure to see your doctor right away. Keep in mind that these symptoms may be caused by conditions other than prostate cancer.

Treatment Options at Human Reconstruction

At our clinic we do not offer chemotherapy, surgery or replace the need for an oncologist. Our doctors specialize in performing therapies that improve the function of the immune system to identify and address cancer cells.

  • Standard treatments include surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy and the treatment protocol depends upon how your cancer is staged and graded along with your oncologist’s decision. Once diagnosed the treatment for cancer often encompasses all three therapies, and usually results in a poor outcome. In actuality, the use of chemotherapy is useless in nearly all cases since it only contributes a 2% absolute survival benefit. This means that after 5 years only 2 additional persons out of 100 will be alive due to the use of chemotherapy when compared with patients who refused chemotherapy.
  • You may have heard of integrative cancer treatment centers like the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, who employ Naturopathic Medical Doctors and other alternative health professionals to treat their patients more holistically, and get a better result. You don’t have to fly to Phoenix or Oklahoma for the alternative therapies, as we are in the Sacramento area, and have experience in supporting the body during its experience with cancer.

Each of our oncology patients is asked to perform an extensive collection of testing. The tests will use blood, urine and stool samples to evaluate the patient’s:

  • Metabolic Processes
  • Genetic Detoxification Polymorphisms
  • Food Sensitivities
  • Hormone Metabolites
  • Immune Function
  • Nutritional Deficiencies
  • Nutritional Toxicities
  • Toxic Body Burden

 

Diabetes

Diabetes is a disease of the endocrine or hormone system of the body in which the body does not produce enough insulin, has a decreased sensitivity to the effects of insulin, or a combination of both. Insulin is a hormone that allows sugar to enter cells in which the sugar is then converted into energy. With uncontrolled or untreated diabetes, sugar stays in the blood, building up to high levels which can eventually lead to permanent vital tissue and organ damage.

Diet Management for Diabetes

Not only is it important for maintenance of general health to choose, eat, and prepare healthy foods, it becomes even more important in the treatment and management of diabetes. Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not assimilate food properly, specifically carbohydrates. The goal of treating diabetes is to control blood sugar levels and diet is the major foundation of this. Frequently patients go to the doctor and are told they need to eat healthier, but they are not told how to do so. Modifying your diet can have a significant positive impact on the treatment of diabetes.

The doctors at Human Reconstruction are trained in clinical nutrition and can provide you with detailed guidelines on what you need to be eating to treat the diabetes and what you need to be avoiding to avoid progression of the disease and possible serious complications including blindness or amputation of a limb. Using diet modification is a major tool for treatment of diabetes and by strictly following the guidelines provided by the doctors, our patients have been able to decrease or sometimes even discontinue certain diabetic medications. Individuals should never attempt to modify the use of their prescription diabetic drugs without first consulting with a doctor.

Weight Control

The major cause of Type II diabetes is being overweight or obese. Today that describes 2/3 of Americans. Weight loss aids in the treatment of diabetes and helps prevent heart disease, a major complication of diabetes. The American Diabetes Association reports that even losing 10-15 lbs can decrease blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol. We help you to take action and make positive lifestyle changes and decrease your risk for the complications associated with having diabetes with our extensive Human Reconstruction Program, where people regularly lose 10 to 15 pounds in a month working out with Dr. Ryan Weitman.

Blood Sugar Control

Diet is not the only way to help control blood sugar. There are specific vitamins, minerals, and herbs that are shown to help increase insulin sensitivity and regulate blood sugar. Our doctors will make expert recommendations based on your health history and current medications.

Stress Relief

Constant stress can increase levels of stress hormones, which result in higher blood sugar levels, and cause weight gain and may result in diabetes. At Human Reconstruction, there are many various methods of keeping stress at bay in order to feel better including meditation, medical exercise, hypnotherapy, herbal medicine, supplementation, high magnesium IVs and hormonal interventions.
