• What are the causes of Low Testosterone?

    Getting older is a major cause of low Testosterone, but an unsettling article in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism established that the past 25 years have brought about a rapid decline in testosterone levels in the United States. Over the years, we have found that low testosterone exists due to lack of sleep, pollution, obesity, lack of nutrition, stress, and even some prescription medicines.

    Pollution in the United States could be the principal cause of the low testosterone battle we are fighting today. Gender-bending chemicals (or Endocrine disrupting chemicals) impact the normal function of a person’s endocrine system. There are everyday chemicals and products that have been discovered to lower testosterone. Some of these substances include:

    • DDT and other pesticides
    • Components of plastic (BPA)
    • Pharmaceuticals
    • Dioxins
    • Polychlorinated biphenyls
    • Food additives
    • Cosmetics
    • Food packaging
    • Detergents
    • Plastic bottles and containers
    • Flame retardants
    • And many more commodities

    These (EDCs) affect the manufacturing of hormones like testosterone. Thankfully, we have found ways to restore your depleted hormone levels and get you back to the happier, healthier you. Call today to schedule an appointment at 407-949-0222.
