Why do some men have low testosterone and other hormonal imbalances that cause ED?
And more importantly, how can you fix erectile dysfunction?
Most men who have problems with hormones, testosterone, and ED, share a common reason.
Virtually all of these men have what is called tissue hypoxia.
Tissue hypoxia means not enough oxygen is reaching the testicles.
Hypoxia symptoms include low testosterone.
The testicles are in a constant state of low blood flow and low oxygen.
After a while, this causes them to stop producing as much testosterone.
Most testosterone is produced in the Leydig cells in the testicles.
If the testicles are not getting enough oxygen and blood flow, the Leydig cells will not produce as much testosterone.
One of the common results in this is a varicocele.
The vein is inflamed and twisted.
A varicocele is like a varicose vein in the scrotum.
It can be painful, or not, and it can lower production of seminal fluid and destroy testosterone production.
Varicoceles are just one thing that can cause tissue hypoxia in the testicles.
If you have a varicocele, sleep apnea, or have prostate inflammation, you might have tissue hypoxia.
Having high blood pressure, frequent heartburn, or gut problems, could mean that you probably have tissue hypoxia right now.
But how extensive is the damage from hypoxia?
Thanks to this fabulous study, we know how epoxy affects the testicles.
And we have some ideas of how to fix it.
Men with low blood flow to their genitals are suffering from hypoxia.
One of the effects is an increase in temperature in the scrotum.
As you may know, our testicles are outside of our bodies in our scrotum to help keep the temperature of our testicles lower.
Sperm are very sensitive to higher temperatures, including typical body temperature.
That’s why when men have low sperm counts, the first advice from most doctors is to wear loose underwear.
By locating the testicles in the scrotum outside of the body, they stay at a lower temperature than the rest of the body.
But when there is low blood flow to the testicles, the scrotum heats up.
The heat kills off sperm, causing a low sperm count.
This is one of the primary symptoms of hypoxia.
It’s all due to low oxygen in the body.
Low oxygen is a problem for every part of the body.
Scientists now know that most of our health problems occur due to poor oxygenation of our tissues.
This state of low oxygen is called oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress results in less oxygen reaching all the tissues.
But it especially affects the sex organs and lowers testosterone levels.
And it leads to all sorts of other issues, including fibrosis.
Men with low testosterone have fibrosis building up in the penis and testicles.
As the tissue hypoxia continues, testosterone continues to be low — and fibrosis builds up in the testicles and the penis.
In this study, researchers evaluated biopsies from the testicles of men with low testosterone and fertility problems.
They found that the testosterone-producing Leydig cells and the testicle structure, in general, was damaged.
It was becoming fibrotic, meaning that fibrosis was building up in these testicles.
All this damage came from oxidative stress.
It seems that it’s critical to stop oxidative stress in its tracks.
Fix oxidative stress and raise testosterone levels.
But how can you reverse oxidative stress?
And can you fix low testosterone?
Researchers are trying to answer both of those questions.
In this review, they looked at various ways of fixing the problem.
They found that oxidative stress causes estrogen levels to go up in the body as a way to protect the body.
Now you have higher estrogen and lower testosterone.
That means you also have higher serotonin levels.
And then you have higher levels of stress hormones such as cortisol.
It’s all designed to protect the body against a constant state of hypoxia.
In the short term, it’s a wonderfully complex dance of protection.
In the long term, each of these protective actions causes damage.
The best thing you can do is to correct the blood flow to the testicles.
You’ll stop the spread of the damage, and even enjoy a better sex life.
It is true that the more oxygenated blood flow to the genitals, the better your performance.
There are several ways of boosting this.
One solution is to do what’s called bag breathing.
You breathe into a bag — you breathe in and out of the bag, which raises carbon dioxide levels in the bag.
One or two minutes of bag breathing several times a day can have a huge effect on the body.
Carbon dioxide levels increase when you do bag breathing.
And as carbon dioxide levels increase, oxygenation increases — and oxidative stress falls.
This is the best way to improve oxygenation without medication.
There are also chemicals that can help prevent or reverse oxidative stress in the male organs.
One of those chemicals is our friend cyproheptadine.
Cyproheptadine works by lowering serotonin levels and histamine levels.
This can help stop or reverse the effects of hypoxia in the male organs.
Aspirin can also be very helpful.
Another thing that can help is acetazolamide.
Even thymine can help when you take it in larger amounts — such as 500 mg to 2000 mg per day.
It’s a very common B vitamin and increases oxygen levels in the blood.
Thymine reverses hypoxia.
Hypoxia is a lot more common than people realize.
It’s become very evident that most men are suffering from low oxygen levels in the tissues, leading to oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress affects the male organ almost more than anything else.
If you can reverse the oxidant of stress, you can fix the problem such as prostate problem, high blood pressure, and low testosterone.
Your testosterone will increase, and your estrogen levels will fall.
Then you’ll have an easier time losing weight and building muscle even without exercise.
And you will start performing again.
