Testosterone optimization is a term that refers to the treatment “Testosterone Replacement Therapy”, which works to rebalance hormone levels that may have fluctuated or changed due to a health condition or from age. Depleting levels of testosterone can quickly start to affect your day-to-day life, potentially leading you to feel off or worsened in general with fatigue, low sex drive, loss of mental clarity, loss of lean mass, trouble keeping weight off as fat is more likely to build-up (particularly around the stomach region), and often feelings of depression. Through testosterone optimization, patients are able to have their direct problems that have been caused by low levels of testosterone to be addressed and rectified, with regular assessments of the hormone levels being made throughout the treatment to ensure that the hormones are always properly balanced. Treating your low testosterone levels with testosterone optimization can replenish your energy, your libido, improve mental clarity, has been shown to even offer improvements in your sensitivity to insulin (meaning it can help prevent or ward off diabetes for those at risk), and allow you to perform physically at your peak once again. Muscle bulk along with strength will start to come back as well, while excess fat is reduced.
There are several ways to help boost your testosterone naturally, the first effective method of which includes engaging in regular physical exercise, specifically resistance and weight training, although this kind of testosterone boost is temporary so should be continued regularly to continually experience optimized testosterone levels. Following a nutritious diet that is packed full of carbs, proteins, and fats can also help you sustain optimized testosterone levels naturally as constant dieting or overeating has been shown to contribute to a depletion of testosterone levels. Frequent spikes in cortisol levels (the hormone produced due to stress) have also been shown to have a negative relationship with testosterone, so if one spikes, the other significantly drops. So, managing stress levels by staying active, getting a good night’s sleep, and developing healthy coping mechanisms can also help to maintain higher levels of testosterone. Lastly, ensuring you are getting all the necessary vitamins either in your diet or through supplements can help to maintain optimal testosterone levels.
Any foods that are nutritious and are high in healthy fats, antioxidants, magnesium, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids will all help to support a healthy testosterone production. Some foods that are known for containing these ingredients that will help to promote testosterone production include:
– Fish, shellfish
– Red meat
– Dark, leafy greens (kale, spinach, etc.)
The initial benefits of testosterone therapy are increased overall quality of life including replenished energy levels, an increased libido, ability to regain lean body mass and keep off excess weight, can start to appear within the first 3 to 4 weeks of starting testosterone therapy. These benefits will continue to improve usually until around the 6-week mark, where how your feeling then will likely be how you will consistently feel long-term as long as the hormone therapy is continued and testosterone levels are maintained. For those who are receiving testosterone therapy in hopes of improvements with their ejaculations or erections, these changes will likely take closer to 6 months before the full benefits can be completely realized. Testosterone therapy is usually a gradual process for most men, so results are not immediate but will only continue to improve with time until you are back to feeling like your best self again.
