This is the next great frontier for pharmaceutical companies to try to make a bundle of money. Unfortunately for you it might come at quite a cost TO YOU. Lower down in this article you can read some of the side effects from taking testosterone from a pharmaceutical company.  For instance here’s just a couple: For Men Under 65: possible 300% increased risk of heart attacks, stroke and death. For Men Over 65: possible 200% increase in cardiac event risk

I have found for my patients’ natural formulas, foods and herbal products can resolve symptoms of low T without any risky side effects. Just because you see something promoted 100 times a day doesn’t mean that it’s safe OR the best way for you to manage a given condition. We have been programmed to feel like we need whatever we see promoted over and over again. That’s why advertising in such big business.

So before you expose yourself to unnecessary risk consider a natural approach, there is an excellent  Herb that I’ve used over 30 years for different things but it seems to work great for a lot of men with low T. This herb is called blessed thistle. You can pick it up at my office or virtually any health food store in town, between 4 to 6 Caps does a great job for most men. Your low T could be more complicated than that and we can evaluate you for better targeting of the nutrients you need for this condition. Feel free to call 918-663-1111 for an evaluation.
