Low Testosterone Levels? Avoid These 5 Deadly Mistakes!

By Mary J. Edwards

Many men who become naturally deficient in testosterone ponder the relationship between having a vasectomy and testosterone levels if thinking about boosting their testosterone levels with testosterone replacement therapy.The connection between vasectomy and testosterone production may influence their decision as to whether to have a vasectomy or not.

In reality, you have one option, and one option only! You've got to get your testosterone levels back up where they belong!.Let's talk about how to do that right now!Low Testosterone Levels? Unless you're past the age of 60, your low testosterone levels are caused by one thing.

Some research concerning having a vasectomy and testosterone levels shows no change in hormone level in the blood.A link between prostate cancer and the amount of testosterone in the blood sheds light on the subject. The association between prostate cancer, and vasectomy and testosterone production research is sketchy.

If you're regularly using drugs, and think they're not effecting your sex drive, think twice. Even common aspirin reduces testosterone levels in men.Here are a few of the worst offenders.Antidepressant psychiatric medications, including Elavil, Valium, and Prozac. Antihypertensive and diuretics.Antihistamines including, Dramamine, Antivert, and Benadryl.Opiate analgesics (painkillers) such as Demerol, Oxycontin, and Codeine.And a few more for good measure, including,Propecia, Tagamet, Zantac, Pepcid AC, and Ibuprofen.

The surgery affects neither the subsequent desire for sex by a man nor the frequency at which he can perform it.A question arises if there is a safe way to boost testosterone levels for men who have vasectomies and suspect they are suffering from low testosterone levels without side effects.

One possible solution lies from using a natural herb called tribulus terrestris. Tribulus terrestris is an herb that has been used by many cultures for at least a thousand years to remedy both sexual and also non-sexual problems.Tribulus terrestris has no known side effects when used to boost testosterone levels. It may be a safe and effective way to increase testosterone for men who want to have or have had a vasectomy.

Block the testosterone-binding effects of SHBG Nettle root as a highly concentrated extract has shown to be effective at binding to SHBG and therefore it permits more free testosterone to circulate the system. It also acts as a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. This is the enzyme, responsible for the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a more potent form of the male sex hormone, which causes prostate enlargement and ultimately cancer. Methanolic extract of nettle can also cut down the SHBG levels, which is another form of elevating the free testosterone in the blood stream.Pygeum (prunus africana) is another herb, known to block the testosterone-binding effects of SHBG. Nettle root and pygeum extracts also benefit the prostate gland as a preventive treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) both by blocking the 5-alpha reductase action.Avena Sativa is an extract from the straw of oats. It has somewhat different properties. It works by freeing bound testosterone, which increases the free testosterone in circulation.Lowering aromatize levels of Zinc. The mineral zinc inhibits the aromatase enzyme that converts testosterone into excess estrogen. The recommended dose for inhibiting aromatase is 80mg daily. However, be sure the combined zinc quantity of all the daily supplements you are taking does not go over this benchmark.

How do you know if you have elevated estrogen levels? Take a look at your body. Do you have fleshy hips and thighs, and a round soft belly? Are you developing gyno, or male breasts.If so, you need to reduce your estrogen levels.How do you do it? Reduce body fat,Reduce your chemical exposure.Gas fumes, diesel fuel, perfumes, dyes, paints, solvents, detergents all have chemicals that mimic estrogen in your body.

Switch to unscented natural products, and make changes in your daily routine to avoid exposure to these chemicals.Reduce consumption of estrogenic foods, especially soy products.Increase your consumption of cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower.Make a few changes in your sleep patters, and you'll kick start your testicles into producing more testosterone.Poor sleep habits can have a devastating impact on T levels, especially, if the habits are chronic.Several studies have show that when sleep levels decline, so do T levels.The sweet spot for most men falls somewhere between 7-8 hours.
