And I bet you already learned something you're probably realising there's more to stop than you realize just beginning you might be shocked to discover that some of the spices that you use regularly actually have to started. So first, let's review about this stuff, or, you know, it's the male hormone, but your seed meal body, I'm assuming you're female. You're listening to this. You might not be you might be a male. That's fine. He listening. I might at times, a sooner female, the female body produces small quantities testosterone. In the ovaries and in the dream clamps. And when you go through menopause, your testosterone levels draw just like the levels of estrogen and progesterone. So some women notice some symptoms that represent testosterone deficiency the symptoms of testosterone deficiency would be lack of energy decreased, sex, drive difficulty having an orgasm sending a hair, including pubic care decrease muscle mass Beaumont, which is otherwise known as a steel versus and decreased feelings of Welby, but at menopause for woman estrogen drops, more than two stroke.

Any and the time is important because your testosterone levels usually don't draw till two years sometimes not until four years after you reach postman had less period. And then like two years later that you notice this dropping destroy and your testosterone level is greatly affected by Jairo. You come into minute was. So there are really two kinds of menopause. One is grandeur Minna pause when you slowly transition through the change by going through Perryman pause for a couple years, and you have all the fluctuations, and it's slow that is called Radulan falls. And the other kind of minerals is Sunday in a boss, and sudden that applause can happen because of surgery that removes your ovaries or chemotherapy that basically destroy. Oy, ovaries causes menopause or radiation therapy that does the same thing. So if you're menopause is grandeur testosterone levels usually decreased by about forty to sixty percent. But if you're Minna pauses Sud, stroke levels, usually decreased by eight percent. But no matter how you inter- or navigate through menopause. You really need to know about this dossier in order to manage things. And if you need to boost your testosterone nobler, so many different ways to do that. And if you need to testosterone, there are many ways to do that too. Seventy any all sorts of testosterone options. So let's start with the tactical in Erbil tests bus routes. What would you say if I told you that some of the spices that you use in your own kitchen continue to fester? Would you say no way have you ever made anything with Cayenne pepper got to start journey that hot spicy taste has a hot and spicy Fe on your buying because it's testosterone. Now, the white Cayenne works is ended increases your circulation and the interest ignition is what makes your face get rid. When you eat Cayenne pepper. Well, increasing your circulation consists of increasing blood flow. So how does that translated using Cayenne pepper for menopause? Well, if Chris the blood flow to your genital area, it can increase your sponsors to sexual stimulation, so many people use Cayenne is a female orgasm student, the active ingredient, Cayenne pepper, something called cat, safe and cat saysaid is actually used mostly as a pain killer because of its red hot tendencies block, ping Biber's. And then you might imagine. Because Cayenne has this affect people made all kinds of formulations with their creams to suit painful joints. There are extracts. There are paid relief minutes result kinds of things, and you know, how if you eat too much of a hot and spicy food your tongue. Burns your face gets all read. These things are exactly the same things happen as side effects, Cayenne products. So wherever you put Cayenne it can cause Bernie, stinging and redness of your skin and just like that temporary sensation on your tongue when you eat a spicy food the symptoms on your skin artillery too. And they'll resolve when you disconnect you using using the Cayenne product, but even if you continue using what at the stinging burning redness will usually resolve after few days, but all the instructions on any kind of product always recommend a limit on how frequently you should use it. If you're using it for purposes of its testosterone thing and the structures usual will say oh use it for about two days in the don't use it for about two weeks, and he really overdo it you can have some blistering and also ration-. Now, there's another spice that has some testosterone. I bet you familiar this to Pat Rica, it has some of the same Beck's Cayenne pepper is actually a milder form of the very same plant and since his milder isn't used for its testosterone affect nearly as much as Cayenne pepper. There are two other herbs that most people don't have as much miliary with familiarity with with regard to the actual herb, but what is called Cubans. See you be closely related to pick for corns and is very much like number cords. And if you have pepper corns are pep record bland or some kind of exotic pepper corn blend in your kitchen. It has testosterone affect and people use cube or pepper corns to increase sex drive. Even there's no real proof. The actually does that, you know, people care lot about their sex drives on us just about anything to increase your such males and females on like will really try a lot of different things for this. Because it's Morten, but there are any health risks with Cuba or pepper corns. So it's okay to try to Heure try. It can't hurt you and the other herb that people are that to me is something called Dom Yana DA MIA abou- Yana, very commoner BH in menopause formulation. You'll go to CBS or whole foods or one of these vitamin shops in you'll see all these products that are made four menopause, and they'll have a multitude of well, usually vitamins minerals, herbs botanic Laupheim things in them. Well, dummy Ana is very commonly one of the things in these products because of its strong thick and is stronger. Than any of the other herbal products mentioned so far and alleviate symptoms of menopause increases your social action, so many people actually use it as an African Deasy s dis yet, and no one's ever had any real health problems with it. And if you want the strongest of the herbs go for the beyond, and that's all I know about the botanical at herbal sources of testosterone. But did you know that there is by Bill at by identical to star in a bunch of bio identical participation actually, and some of it is over the counter, and some of it, isn't, you know, that's the thing about bio identical stuff, you can find a lot of over the counter, you can find it at compound pharmacies. AM you can find it in synthetic pharmaceutical. So the most common bio identical form of testosterone is D H E A D H E D H E. It's an acronym for Daijo MB end Rostro just call it the H E now everybody's adrenal glands produce D H E. And D H E A is produced throughout your life. And it serves the purpose of improving your lean body mass and improving your glucose tolerance and improving your immune response, but your levels of DHEA changed throughout your lifetime. So it's really low before puberty admit peaks at age twenty five h thirty it starts to decline and by the time, you're about seventy it's almost undetectable. J hate it. That all the good stuff is what's up at young? But it kind of accents. Right. So all the things that DHEA does worsen as you get older your lean body mass. Decreases, your glucose, tolerance decreases in your immune response decreases. So that's why we tend to gain weight get diabetes and have more difficulty getting over the flu as we get on. So if you'll get D H E A as an alternative and complementary product, you'll find great variability in the strength, and the currency and all kinds of things simply because there just isn't regulation for over the counter products, anything that isn't pharmaceutical has a different set of regulatory guidelines, and they just don't have to be as exact so you're over the counter D H E A will really vary. Lot in purity and quality. And it might be difficult to know, exactly. How much you getting? Now, if you want more predictability, a little more predictability, you can get DHEA as a bio identical product from com pounding pharmacy now cop money pharmacy makes the DHEA onsite. So it's a pharmacy and its regulatory standards are greater than that of something you might buy the counter, but they're not as high as those of the pharmaceutical industry, so that you can find it in a cream you can find in a patch, and you can use it either on your skin anywhere or you can put it in your genital region. And it a work, regardless of where you put the effect isn't immediate it might take weeks before you notice the difference blow. You will probably notice something whether you're male or female, you will probably notice something, and as you might expect the side effects of DHEA R masculinisation. Well, I mean, it's testosterone. It's the male hormone testosterone is what makes men men so you have to be careful with D H E. Don't be surprised if it causes mood swings that Neave shall hair evening of your voice, weight gain and increased sex drive. And I would say that the most common thing women notice with the in addition to increase sex drive, isn't Grushin women aren't typically aggressive were pretty calm. And we keep it together. We don't lose our Tipper much as not not as much as men minimum hall hit someone that's because of their testosterone while women don't do that. And it's because we don't have as much Suster. But if you take the. TA? You might have did some of the sorry. And then there is synthetic testosterone. Now, here's the problem with synthetic testosterone. There are no synthetic testosterone products that are actually approved for women. There's a buck then. But there are none for women now. Are people who go ahead and use the mail his pastoral because that's have failed to them. But there is nothing made specifically for women. Now, there's some big things that you have to know about the differences because when if a woman uses the testosterone for male, she using it in a sense that we call off label that means you using something other than it's FDA approved purpose now, there are all sorts of medications that we use this manner. I mean, it's very common to have a medicine that really isn't designed for what you're using for for instance, that stuff you put on your lives to make your eyelashes grow. Well, that was glaucoma medicine people put these drops for glaucoma, they're in their eyes. And they grew these long beautiful axis. They started using them. Save medicine for glaucoma on. To me, they're lashes growth, and there's a medication called minoxidil that made people grow bunch of hair. They started using it. Then it's called Rogaine, they put it in a topical foreman. So there's a lot of off label use lots of medicines get used swing because it costs millions of dollars to get FDA approval. Drug and what position starting using drugs off label for purposes, not approved by the FDA? The FDA will say, hey, why it's been millions proving that save us the drug for different purpose? Where'd everyone's already using it for different purpose? So all the synthetic touched ASTA roads are for men, and you might be able to find a doctor who's comfortable prescribing it for you if you're on. But there are going to be others. Who are? So here's the big difference in testosterone products for mid into Susteren products for women. So. His saw strokes products that are designed for men are much much stronger in what women want or need most of them are formulated for insufficient testosterone in men, and as a woman, you only need one tenth of the daily testosterone dosage intended for a man that means that these destroy products have ten times as much to Stroem as you need or as you produce before menopause. And that means that if you use to start to Rome as to Suster replacement for your lower to muster, you're probably end up with testosterone excess. You see is probably gonna be way more than you need at. It's probably gonna be really hard to take little enough to avoid side effects. There are patches. And if you have a patch, you're gonna have to cut it into ten pieces or more, the tip assists. And there's a jail, and you have to find a way to limit the jail to such a tiny minute dose. So that you don't and too much to your skin. You just have to use these products with great caution. You can find synthetic to SaaS shot skin implants oral pills skin patches skill Jill. And you know, when you think about shots and implants now, those those are long term options pills badges of gels are going to be your short term options. Obviously if you're just trying yet don't try something that's long time. I if you get a shot or implant, and you don't want get it's really difficult to roar to reverse. I mean implants last for four to six months pills patches, Joe stone, and there used to be products that were made for women that had both estrogen to Stormin of those were great. They don't make your anymore. There's actually one product it's vailable in some countries. But it's hard to find a product that has both estrogen and antipasto stroke. If you can buy one go with that rather than using the guys because the guys stop makes it so much harder for you to find something that works for you. When they made on these products that had both estrogen into started, the testosterone dosages that will make women were like one point two five milligrams or two point five grams with the products that are made for men have like twenty point two five milligrams or nine one seven Milkis, it's that's hugely different. So they the beauty of the estrogen Aaron testosterone products and combined is that hey relieve your symptoms of menopause and your symptoms of testosterone deficient s-. So that's how it is with you know. The situation onto strove these days. There's just not much out the for women. There's one new product that's of agile 'test entre. But it's really just for badging dryness. So just remember testosterone causes mass unit is Asian if he don't want best salinisation e Capel. Now, what are the thing about this is that synthetic testosterone? Cayenne are never increase your bad habits lipids decrease your good lipids and increased attracts triglycerides. So it increases your risk for heart attack. Really? And. It. The good news. Is it doesn't do some of the things that women worry about with estrogen? So it doesn't increase your uterus cancer. So that's really a good thing. So that's about all you need to know for testosterone. It's very important to some women. I am shocked at how many women asked me about testosterone and how vital and important. It is to them because they feel like they are not able to perform sexually without it.
