Sex - Ed - Libido - Diet - Trt - Wellbeing - How To Make It All Work
I've been struggling with lately sex. I start off good and hard then before being cumming I start going soft. This happens more times than not. I have always had a extremely high sex drive and lets say enjoyed my sex life very much. So this is a new thing. I do notice a lost in libido but that could or could not be linked to the loosing hardness issue.
So here is a little background and I am sure a few of you already have chatted with me on previous posts.
38 male. lifting over 15 years. pretty clean diet. strive for healthy overall lifestyle.
major depression - 150mg wellbutrin and 300mg Lamictal
hypothyroid - 2g Armour
Low test - 100mg test-e/week divided e3d
High BP - 10mg Lisinopril (high being 140/85)
Sleep disorder - 1.0mg Klonopin
My t level in July was at 171 while on 10g gel then 1 month after switching to 100mg test-e every other week it hit 899. Everything was working just fine for months. Good morning wood. Libido high. Performance good.
I am pretty close to being due for a BT and maybe that will supply the info for this issue. But............. lets say the BT doesnt show anything abnormal/out of wack so to say. Then what........
My Dr. feels that it is mostly in my head and I can see his point. Once you have a issue cumming, getting hard or staying hard then the next time your doing it you think about the problem and then create stress and your brain keeps thinking of that rather than enjoying the sex.
I have to admit its on my mind most of the time and I worry when is it going to go soft. I even have hardness issues when watching porn so its not my wife or anything to do with her. I have access to Viagra, Lavitra but looking for some answers not just temporarily fixing with a pill. Plus, I'm to young and this came on to fast to need to take a pill to f@ck.
So thats one theory........... looking for others to share their thoughts, ideas and pasts experiences and what helped them. Ilook forward to your comments.

Ok then lets start off with this
1. when was the blood drawn last test for T
2. sleep patterns
3. current eating patterns
4. daily activty
5. amount out in the sun each day
6 are loacated in the northern part of US above 40 th parellel.
By balancing the liver properly through dietary and life stlye modications I have gotten 70% off their head shrinking meidcines got their libido back and alleviate there depressive symptoms. Through my research people on antidepressant drugs are at higher chances for developing cancer because the medicines alter the detoxification pathways with in the liver. chineese have not been wrong for 5000 years, heal the liver heal the body..
With my clients i do a comprehensive interview for 2-3 hours and from that I do indept resarch to come up with a game plan through lifestyle changes and dietary modificatons based on labortaroy reports and clinincal tests. I have been spot on 100% so far. When I recommend supplements I back them up with clincal reasoning why and make them understand the purpose. MY goal is not to ram pills down some one's throat, but to maximize there efficiency to be cost effective.

what do you recommend -I recommend supplements I back them up with clincal reasoning why and make them understand the purpose.
I am calling my Dr. to request a BT to compare the above items. Any additional tests I should ask for?
I plan to research today how to improve libido and ED. I was thinking about it last night and I really dont have much desire anymore. I have had a extremely high sex drivee my whole life and so this is very out of the norm. Also, I just dont get that great hardness. Somethings off/wrong. Thinking of asking my urologist to send me to endo but havent heard much possitive about them.
Maybe next is to Dr. John, he is 2 hours away but I cant see my personal Dr. agreeing to this and dont want him to drop me as a patient.
Look forward to hearing back. Any suggested readings/webs and info is greatly appreciated.

going to attempt to create a new thread with a better heading to try and get more attention and help with this issue.
12-14-2007, 07:03 AM
What title would you like this one to have and I can change it.
12-14-2007, 07:09 AM
Thinking about it. Something in the area of
Sex - ED - LIBIDO - DIET - TRT - WELLBEING - HOW TO MAKE IT ALL WORK
12-14-2007, 07:42 AM
once i start to bleed out the bad estrogens and open their liver pathways their symptoms start to be alleviated as well as depression.. I use the tongue, fingernails as a gauge to your health and areas that are imbalanced then from there I know where ti focus on and what steps to take next. There is no candy cutter method but majority of people fall into same catagory when I really start digging in to their past.
excessive Stress -trigger DNA polymorphism (genetics) -lowers serotnin - decreases melatonin -increases cortisol -depeltes gluthione- histmaines and estogen metabolism altered - increase load on antioxidents - open doors to cancers . This does not include even hormonal dysruptions added inot the mix !!
Anti depressants cause cancerby depelting melatonin. I recmmend all people on anti depressants to take 1 -3 mgs time released melatonin to prevent this.
12-14-2007, 08:33 AM
mmm, man u pack some knowledge!!
im stressed out lots, maybe i will start taking my 3mg meletonin at night ...rearely get my 8hrs of sleep tho, thus i would be groggy i think...
have u heard taking it b4 working out (increase HG levels?) would that method still decrrease cortisol and such?
12-14-2007, 09:24 AM
healing begings in the mind but some time you have to first heal the liver and gut by removing metabolic road blocks before this can even start. Some people come to me depressed, no libido and no where to turn to because drs are not willing to help beause all test are normal. Once I start digging into things I find alot of possible imbalnces and by correcting them 2-3 weeks they are a new person.

more so now these days its environmental stresses, but stress in general or hidden child hood memorys that have been buried hoping that they go away resurface 20-30 years with vengence. That is why dealing with the issue at hand is a must as parent instead of sweeping it under the cover so to speak
12-14-2007, 11:08 AM
I have been reading your posts/responses all morning and wow you have allot of good stuff. As you mentioned before I do have most of the side effects or issues going on in my life and I am not getting the answers I want from Dr.'s
For years every head med has been pushed on me. I have taken just about anything out there and I am so tired of it and dealing with depression. Not that finding out I have low t was a good thing but at least it point to some of the head problems.
My biggest issue with all of this stuff especially with Dr. is they either just want to shove a pill at you to fix something rather than trying to find out why is there a problem and how to correct that.
I have reduced my dep. meds on my own (slowly) since being put on TRT and my dep. is been pretty regulated as far as highs and lows. My goal is to someday get off the wellbutrin and lamictal but I have aa hard time beleiving this will ever happen.
I am hoping to clear up somethings with all your help and past expeiences but as I have been reading for a while that allot of people have the allot of the same issues and there is just so many answers.
One problem I am having is blasted all over this site and that is this.
For whatever reason I out of the blue started having problems getting or keeping hard ons. Than a few weeks later I lost my libido. Im the type that had to hide my rod at work because I just thought of a hot chick to looking at p@rn might or might not get me hard and excited.
I do stress about this allot so I know that is causing some of the issues. Most everytime I am going to have sex I start thinking about the issue. I know I need to relax but that is easier said than done.
Trying to get a BT called in so I can compare July's # to current and see if it reveals anything. Like allot of other people I have read their stories are similar to that when they 1st started test everything was great and allot of them after a while got into my issues.
I know e2 can be a issue but when it was high 66 I was always horny but my nipples hurt so I got on l-dex and maybe got it to low.
Anyway, sorry to ramble on and on but would love feedback on any of my issues topics.
how to best treat low test
best way to eat for hormonal health - overall health and mental health
any other comments and questions are greatly appreciated.

In other words, the environmental factors do not actually cause the polymorphism, but they can cause a latent polymorphism to be expressed. That's an enormous difference.
If the environmental factors causedthe polymorphism, that would be the equivalent of saying that environmental factors can change an individual's genome, which, as far as we know, is impossible.
Someone will undoubtedly mention gene therapy. But that is a highly artificial circumstance.

Yes you are right there are people out there that do not know what they are doingandcan end up damaging people and even killing them tinkering around with metabolic altering the metabolic pathways. Crap knew some idiot told a person hypoglycemia to take metformin that it will help control there blood sugar they ended up in the hospital with glucose of 35.

Let me get this straight, HAN: There is a connection between histamines and Estrogen?
Could you explain what you mean here and how this line of thought is derived? As always, thanks in advance.

Genova Diagnostics at UK
adds Food alergy (FACTestTM) to NutriEval test
There are all kind of alergy panels,
you look as good candidate for some of them.
I did not look at the USA kinds, but the UK site have them listed on top of everything else.
ALLERGY PROFILES / ANTIBODY PROFILES:
ALL01 Food Allergy Cellular Test (FACTestTM): Food intolerance can be an important factor in many acute and chronic conditions, producing delayed onset symptoms ranging from IBS, muscle and joint aches, fatigue, weight problems, hyperactivity, skin irritations and anxiety. The FACTestTM measures all types of immunological reactions to a total of 233 different foods, including common seasonings, colourings, additives and beverages from a single blood sample.
ALL02 FACTestTM Dairy & Grains Profile: This test measures sensitivities against all cow's, sheep's, goat's and soya products as well as all grains and yeast. A marker called tissue transglutaminase (tTGA), which is highly specific at identifying untreated Coeliac Disease, is also measured.
ALL03 FACTestTM Additives Profile: This profile measures reactions to commonly found food additives.
ALL04 FACTestTM Antibiotics & Analgesics Profile: This profile measures reactions to commonly used antibiotics and analgesics.
ALL05 IgE Food Panel: This test measures acute reactions, known as classical allergies, against 20 common foods. Symptoms usually present immediately and include hayfever, asthma, urticaria, swollen/itchy throat, tongue, lips, gums, watery/itchy/swollen eyes, rhinitis, colic, anaphylaxis, eczema and skin rashes.
ALL06 IgE Inhalant Panel: This panel identifies classical (IgE) inhalant allergies to 20 of the most common airborne allergens.
ALL07 FACTestTM & IgE Inhalant: This combined panel assesses food intolerances and inhalant allergies together. This is particularly useful for those with hayfever and/ or sensitivities to nuts or fruits.
ALL08 Comprehensive Food Allergy Profile: This comprehensive analysis combines the FACTtestTM, IgE Food Allergy test and the marker tTgA.
ALL09 Individual Allergens: Individual IgE allergens are available on request.
ALL10/ALL11 IgE 5-Food Panel/IgE 10-Food Panel: Panels consisting of either 5 foods or 10 foods can be created to suit the individual and will be tested for acute IgE allergies.
ALL12 IgG 88-Food Panel: IgG antibodies are associated with 'delayed' or non atopic food reactions that exacerbate that exacerbated or contribute to many different health problems. Simultaneous high levels of many IgG food-specific antibodies can also be associated with intestinal hyper permeability.
ALL13 IgG Spices: This profiles consists of 24 of the frequently used culinary herbs and spices.
ANT01 Candida Antibody Profile: Candida is a yeast that is part of our digestive flora, however in some individuals the natural balance of the gut is disrupted leading to a pathogenic form of the organism. This results in many symptoms ranging from fatigue, bloating, diarrhoea/ constipation, muscle aches and headaches, to name but a few. This test is used not only for detecting the presence of the infection but also as an indicator of the stage of the condition.
ANT02 Gluten Sensitivity Profile: For the detection of increased sensitivity to gluten, a constituent of wheat, rye & barley leading to digestive problems and coeliac disease.
ANT03 TGA- Tissue Transglutaminase: Tissue transglutaminase has been proven to be highly specific in detecting untreated Coeliac Disease and is the target antibody in this disease
ANT04 Secretory IgA (SIgA): SIgA is an important indicator of digestive immune function. Chronic intestinal infections (due to bacterial, yeast or parasites), food sensitivities, aging, antibiotics, medication and stress all decrease sIgA levels. Low levels can lead to recurrent infections and food intolerances.

It seems we kinda got off the topic or my question/issues. My problem as mentioned earlier is that I have lost almost all of the sex drive. When I do get a erection it is either only a semi or I seem to loose hardness during.
Also, I noticed that since my t levels have increased I cum faster than normal. Dr. told me that he has guys take lexapro 10mg e3d or e4d to help them last longer.
This might be something I look into but if I dont have desire/libido and my d!ck doesnt get hard then why?
Thought of asking Dr. for Cialis or Viagra to help with hardness but thats just another pill to take and doesnt address the issue. So at this point I might get the script and use it as needed while I try and figure out the rest.
One other issue I think ways on my mind and Im sure is added stress is I am stressed out about how much my nuts have shrunk since starting test-e. So I worry both about getting/keeping a hard on and the fact my balls are allot smaller. Obviously this tells you all thatboth my urologist and Dr. dont/wont scribe me HCG.
Same reason I have read before. They say its a bodybuilding drug and its used for woman to increase chance of preg.
Does anything else help your balls maintain size? Starting to wounder if I should add some of my Androgel to my test regimine. I dont know much about DHT and if that contributes to low libido but........
12-17-2007, 12:51 PM
as I might have mentioned earlier, I think im in a similar boat. I would avoid as much as you can the meds, especially the lexapro. Cialis or viagra not bad, although not cheap.
Part of the early thing might be just not used to things working right...i think thats a bit tied to whats going on with me, although only partly.
Im soon adding b12 injections...will see if that has any side-effects that are noteworthy to this discussion.
I would try to find a doc to get you hcg, I find its incredibly imortant. I am on t-gel rather then injects and am in a similar boat. See if you can get an organic acids test done to check other pathways as well.
If i come up with anything that is helpful, you'll be the first to know.
12-17-2007, 01:28 PM
is your urologist a tard?? says right in the leaflet
"for male hypogonadism 1000-4000iu 3x week"
12-18-2007, 10:16 AM
consist of this set of tests, plus report gives list of supplements and daily dose for corrective action.
Amino Acid analysis
Essential & Metabolic Fatty Acid
Essential and Metabolic Fatty Acids Assessment
Elemental Analysis, Packed Erythrocytes
Oxidative Stress Analysis
Tell me more about B12
my results show B12 defficiency,
and I already am taking large amouts of it
plus my blood test shows B12 at the top range
B12 is neural protector, low functional B12=ED (I guess).
