I know that you’re against taking steroids for athletics, but I’m 61 and am considering getting hormone replacement therapy. I’ve watched as my body has begun to decline with age and I don’t like it. I’ve heard about the amazing things testosterone can do and would like to try it. What are your thoughts on it?
I, too, have heard quite a bit about the benefits of testosterone and know men who have received HRT (hormone replacement therapy). My good friend Bob Delmontique actually speaks at anti-aging conferences around the world and has good things to say about hormone therapy.
There are a number of anti-aging clinics around the country – some reputable, others not. If you are serious about it, I would suggest finding an MD who specializes in hormone therapy. I’ve heard stories unqualified “experts” who will see a patient, write a prescription, and then give it to a doctor to sign, oftentimes without the doctor ever even having met the patient!
May I suggest that before you take the step of therapy you consider finding natural treatments that may boost your own natural testosterone levels? Eating healthy fats, lifting weights, eating cruciferous veggies like broccoli and cauliflower and even increasing sexual activity can all help boost your testosterone levels naturally.
You might want to consider speaking with a qualified nutritionist first, and then if the results aren’t what you desire, going to a physician. I’m always for trying natural treatments before medical ones.
