22 with testoterone levels at 95....(updated with labs)

I just turned 22 years old a few weeks ago. I had my bloodwork done recently (i was still 21 at the time) and my testosterone was at a level of 92....(range was like 250-1000 etc...)

I always had a suspicion that i had low test since my package isnt as big as i think it should be, my shoulders and wrists are kinda narrow, and i've always had low muscle mass. I make these comparisons off of the 4 other males in my family(3 bro's and my dad). I have light facial hair and my voice sounds average. Also i always had a sex drive up until about maybe 1 or 2 years now.

I used to be overweight, about 225lbs at 5'9". i went on a diet and got down to about 165lbs(skinnyfat) in one year. This is when i began to really take notice of my symptoms...My sex drive at this point is completely gone, i'm always cold(hands, feet,body), weak,i'm lethargic often, suffer from constant hunger even when i am full...

My diet was more like a calorie restriction than an actual eating plan. I ate what i liked just within my cal limits (it was 1800 per day). I still made sure to get enough protein. My diet was never low carb or low fat(about 55g of fat per day). Currently my maintenance cals are like 2100 or so, i think my mom eats more cals per day than i do..my dad eat tons more than i do and maintains his weight..

My doc did bloodwork and an overall checkup:

my testosterone is crazy low at 95

LH and FSH are low, MRI said pituitary was O.K.

my thyroid tests are in range but it looks to me like they are right above being low

it looks like i get reactive hypoglycemia (was not diagnosed as diabetic)

my liver ast and alt were high, pancreas amylase was also high

i smell ammonia on my breath within 5-10 minutes of cardio and also sometimes when just about my day

My temp at the docs has been seen at 97.4 and is usually in the 97's. However i once caught it at 98.5!(luck day? lol)



Overall my issues have been seriously affecting my quality of life. I'm always have constant hunger, skinnyfat, weak, no sex drive, etc.. I'm depressed over all of this and pretty much worry about myself everyday. I've seen several docs and none have been able to help me really. They just offer to put me on androgel constantly. I'm reluctant to start since i know its for life. If anyone here can chime in i'd appreciate it

It could be a lab error so I would retest to verify..
Protein is being converted to ammonia due to you are not eating enough carbs. I used to smell like ammonia while doing cardio long time ago. I was in a catabolic state NOT good.

36.94C=98.5F
36.11C=97F
36.33C=97.4F
Your temperatures are more or less ok.
If (if supported by tests) you end up supporting thyroid,
start with 6 months (or longer) course of T3, then switch to Armour.
--------------------
5'9", 165# (low muscle mass) good
5'9", 225# (low muscle mass) obese
---------
TT=92(250-1000) (package isnt as big)
LH and FSH are low, MRI said pituitary was O.K.
blood test is most likely correct, your TT is very low

You have to go on TRT, start with HCG only, may work,
if not, add test.
To have better chances, use daily shots.
People have tonns of problems with TRT because they hate frequent shots.
Use smallest available insuline needles, that will help with accepting shots.
----------------------------
cold(hands, feet,body), weak,i'm lethargic often
my thyroid tests are in range but right above being low

get better thyroid test, also check adrenals
You may have to support thyroid (and adrenals)
-----------------------------
reactive hypoglycemia

Eat several small meals and snacks throughout the day, no more than three hours apart, eat high-fiber foods

Get some (Beataine HCL) with each meal, that will make sure that you are actually digesting your food. Add good probiotics and enzymes.
-----------------------------------------

my liver ast and alt were high, pancreas amylase was also high

smell ammonia

hmmmm
contact cpeil2, possibly he will have some ideas
-----------------------------------------

Consider doing blood test that I do once a year.
It is on post #44
http://anabolicminds.com/forum/male-anti-aging/66268-jans-bloodtest-april13-2.html

but in mean time, post all your blood work that you have done till now.
Analyte name, value, units, range, name of labotatory.

Thanks for the responses everyone!

The Matrix,
the labs are all correct, they have been done several times. The highest my test has ever been is like 142. Concerning carbs, i usually eat about 200-250g per day. I'll play around with the numbers and see if i still get the ammonia smell. The funny thing though, i once ate an entire dominos pizza for a cheat meal, after that i went do some cardio, i still smelled ammonia...

EasyEJL,
my LDL was somewhere in the mid range
My HDL was high, above range
my overall cholesterol number was still within limits


JanSz,
Thanks for your post, lots of info
I will post my labs tommorrow when i get a chance

DT5,
I have been holding off on starting any testosterone until i see a Dr. that can work with me, explain things to me, and that i am confident to work with. I want to stay natural just so any future bloodwork represents my natural state. But, i'm gonna have to start something soon because i'm tired of being like this...

could be an error or a number of factors working against you

if you didnt get optimal sleep test can decrease by 40 %
if you didnt get 20 % fat or more test can decrease
when you go on a diet for a long time hormones go out of whack, test, thyroid, leptin and some others

What is your diet and lifestyle like?

Do you exercise regularly? or not?

Do you eat a good quality diet with green leafy vegetables, fruits, healthy oils EFA's (olive, hemp, coconut), lean grass fed beef, lamb, chicken, beans, quinoa, rice, eggs etc...

How is your sleep?

Are you under a lot of stress (work, study, relationship wise)?

Smoke or Drink.... Drinking will elevate liver enzymes as well as a crappy fatty diet.

These all play a major role into your health.

Then investigate vitamin/mineral status (hair mineral analysis & serum plasma blood tests), heavy metal overload also shown on hair mineral analysis (mercury, lead, cadmium etc..).

Low zinc is usually correlated with low testosterone.

As Jansz said regarding replacement your best bet would be to start with HCG and see how that works for you. I might work excellently or they might not, if it doesn't move on to T-shots.

Hypoglycaemia.... chromium and manganese will improve this. both levels will be shown on a hair mineral analysis.

Candida albicans also causes hypoglycaemia look into possible overgrowth.

I had a friend who was in the same predicament. He was 17 with ZERO facial hair, scrawny/weak, chubby. He had a Doc tell him that his horomones had'nt kicked in as they should have. I'm not sure of his exact test count, but he told me it was pretty low, im going to assume it's around where you're at.

He under went horomone therapy and it really changed his life. Definetly talk to your Dr. to see what he would recomend for your case imparticular.

I would consider a Test booster like Tribulus right now and see how you feel. With a test count like that, im sure you'll feel a huge difference.

I don't know about Tribulus. It has to be cycled and can cause E2 feedback. It did for me.

Everybody is different. I doubt your horomones are in the same state as the OP's.
No...that's true. My normal baseline is 475. I ran Tribulus and nothing else for 10 weeks. After 4 weeks my TT was just over 600 and E2 was normal. After 10 weeks my TT dropped below my baseline to 385 and E2 was substantially elevated. The poster of this thread would have to sustain a TT level as high as I did for a prolonged period of time to experience feedback. If he doesn't then Tribulus would be of even less value to him.

It's true that everybody is different. That is why the untested use of herbs can be dangerous. We are not talking about vitamins.

maybe try some natural suppliments first like zma, or tribulus test booster. It will work!

Also eat more calories and eat more carbs. it could be your body isnt producing enough test because you dont eat enough. Not enough good fats in your diet and not enough calories will stunt the output of your bodys natural test.

thats sort of like killing a zombie. If you have no natural production, then there is nothing to kill. The best way to use androgel is likely with HCG (really androgel is the devil, transdermal testosterone is just plain wrong IMO) so that the HCG can possibly begin to bring back natural production while the exogenous testosterone keeps you feeling human male while that happens.

i would test agaoin just to back up the first test becasue anadrole is super strong and if you really dont need it, dont take it, it can make your body to stop producing the little bit of test you already have

you gotta apoint but if your lh is like 1.4 and the low end of the range is 1.5 and test is 230 dosent that mean the boys are still working somewhat
my doc just through testim at me and im affraid to use it.im going through almost the same situation as the op so keep this thread going

somewhat, which is when the hcg therapy may work. but if you are going to feel like killing yourself the next 3 months or more while it gets working, and are unable to get an erection, gain fat, loose muscle, etc, its better to use the androgel too.

If you are close to the northeast I know of a good Dr that look for root causes of problems and uses TRT as last resort...He uses alot of nutritional testing to rule out nutrient imbalances. PM me if you are interested. I also know some one on this board that is a guru when it comes it kick starting ones systems through natural means. He has helped several people here to get on the right paths. He is reasonable available by phone. You will be very well educated in the process of areas that go over looked by traditional dr's.

TRiglycerides being low is a big red flag meaning you may have been on a low fat diet.
Your lh is low which could use a boost. nurtient imbalances seems to be huge factor here.
Proper nutrient ratio would be the first step replenish all of the building blocks for hormones in proper levels.

All medical treatments are about risk vs reward. Chemotherapy almost kills you, but the risk:reward ratio is there. Androgel's risk:reward profile as far as how it can affect people around you unintentionally makes it a poor choice IMO vs injectibles or even andriol taken orally.

1. adjust life styles and nutrition. You may be eating wrong combination of fat that could be shutting down your hormones..Peoples biochemistry is different and what is some gold may be some one elses poison
2. address adrenals/thyroid the sex hormones secondary
3. replenish body with proper nutrients in the proper ratio to give the building blocks it needs. Yes you may be taking 50 grams of fat but if you are not absorbing it may not be doing a thing. Stress suppresses pancreatic enzymes which alters nutrient absorptioin. Everything every one is dealin with I have already been through it.

i wanna start eating more fat but at 9 cals per gram my portion sizes dwindle when i add more fat to the diet. i can only eat like 2100 cals per day without gaining weight. I'm up from like 9 in the morning right back till 12 at night. its so hard to stretch that small amount of cals. adding another 20 grams of fat (to be at 75 grams per day) is gonna be tough but increase it from 55g per day

My healthy live style is what got me in the mess in the first place. I was taking in flax seed oil 2TBSP a day thinking it was healthy for a long peroid of time latter i fine out that after 8-10 weeks it can cause an imbalance resulting in a shutting down of testosterone not from the estrogen effect but suppressing one of the essential things for hormone produciton. If you take alot of fish oils and flax in the past this could be one of your issues. 50 grams of fat is not crap and to me its too low and more like 75-100 grams is what is more needed, but the secret is getting it in the right ratio. I have jumpstarted many youngs people T levels from 100 up to the 500-600 because they where eating all the wrong fats. along with proper lifestyle this one issue is core to proper recovery of health.

i take maybe 3 fish oil caps a week total

i love fats, nothing brings out the flavor in food more. If i could i would slather PB on everything, drizzle olive on everything, and eat steaks as i wish lol. The problem is my really low maintenance calories... at 20% fat in the diet i should have 47g of fat per day. If it up that to 75 grams that would make my diet about 32% fats.

But i'm willing to try so i'm gonna increase the fats. How much saturated fat should i make sure to get? i know i already get some because i eat alot of beef and i eat cheese



EDIT: i just had some bloodwork faxed over to me that i did about 2-3 weeks ago. I was not planning on going back to this endo because i didnt like him much.

you guys are gonna get a kick out of this, my testosterone levels were 25!the range on that lab was something like 250-1540. Lab was DOCS CONTINUUM or something like that...

Reason why your metabolism is slow probably has to be low adrenals and low thyroid issues.

It would help to get better thyroid test.

additionally:
your HDL and liver are problematic, get help of specialist.

There are opinions that ferritin's range is royally screwed. They think that ferritin should not be higher than 50.

Look at my post #4

It would help to get better thyroid test.

additionally:
your HDL and liver are problematic, get help of specialist.

There are opinions that ferritin's range is royally screwed. They think that ferritin should not be higher than 50.

jansz your going to give the poor guy a heart attack from scaring him. Liver is alittle elevated and could easily be rectified with propely liver balancing. No biggie so do not sweat ..
HDL is fine more is better
ferritin levels average male are 120-180 these are healthy males pulled right out of the gym that keep ion shape and are 25 years of age taking just normal supplements no steroids and basic multivitamin. So that theory is shot to hell..when it gets to up to the 75-90% percentile then yes it could cause an issue and should be red flags.

Re:

I would give it a shot if I were you and see what happens to see if you start feeling better.

You do not have to do it for life if it does not help you.

I just turned 22 years old a few weeks ago. I had my bloodwork done recently (i was still 21 at the time) and my testosterone was at a level of 92....(range was like 250-1000 etc...)

I always had a suspicion that i had low test since my package isnt as big as i think it should be, my shoulders and wrists are kinda narrow, and i've always had low muscle mass. I make these comparisons off of the 4 other males in my family(3 bro's and my dad). I have light facial hair and my voice sounds average. Also i always had a sex drive up until about maybe 1 or 2 years now.

I used to be overweight, about 225lbs at 5'9". i went on a diet and got down to about 165lbs(skinnyfat) in one year. This is when i began to really take notice of my symptoms...My sex drive at this point is completely gone, i'm always cold(hands, feet,body), weak,i'm lethargic often, suffer from constant hunger even when i am full...

My diet was more like a calorie restriction than an actual eating plan. I ate what i liked just within my cal limits (it was 1800 per day). I still made sure to get enough protein. My diet was never low carb or low fat(about 55g of fat per day). Currently my maintenance cals are like 2100 or so, i think my mom eats more cals per day than i do..my dad eat tons more than i do and maintains his weight..

My doc did bloodwork and an overall checkup:

my testosterone is crazy low at 95

LH and FSH are low, MRI said pituitary was O.K.

my thyroid tests are in range but it looks to me like they are right above being low

it looks like i get reactive hypoglycemia (was not diagnosed as diabetic)

my liver ast and alt were high, pancreas amylase was also high

i smell ammonia on my breath within 5-10 minutes of cardio and also sometimes when just about my day

My temp at the docs has been seen at 97.4 and is usually in the 97's. However i once caught it at 98.5!(luck day? lol)



Overall my issues have been seriously affecting my quality of life. I'm always have constant hunger, skinnyfat, weak, no sex drive, etc.. I'm depressed over all of this and pretty much worry about myself everyday. I've seen several docs and none have been able to help me really. They just offer to put me on androgel constantly. I'm reluctant to start since i know its for life. If anyone here can chime in i'd appreciate it

Keeping Your Body in an Acid State is Deadly, Cancer, Bacteria and Viruses thrive in an Acidic Environment...
Alkaline is key to your health!
Acidic blood pH levels, which cause toxic acid wastes (acidosis), is a mostly unknown but dangerously destructive circumstance because it leads to so many deadly diseases such as heart disease and cancer, as well as serious health problems such as low energy, unwanted weight gain, poor athletic performance and accelerated aging.

When you have an acidic pH, your body is being silently torn apart day by day and becomes increasingly vulnerable to degenerative diseases of all types. However, when you maintain an alkaline pH on a daily basis, your body can rebuild, repair, rejuvenate and remain young!

Your Body pH affects EVERYTHING
Are you aware that in many cases Cancer has been stopped in its tracks by people who have shifting their blood to an alkaline pH state? The magnitude of this understanding is of incredible importance to someone who is fighting virtually any disease, overcoming an illness, or someone desiring to simply feel better and remain as young as possible. What it means is this... Your Body pH affects EVERYTHING!

Even mild acidity in your body can over time cause such problems as :

Cardiovascular damage, including the constriction of blood vessels, clogged arteries, weakened veins, and the reduction of oxygen
All forms of Cancer
Unwanted weight/fat gain, obesity, insulin disorders, and diabetes
Liver, Bladder and Kidney conditions, including kidney and gallstones
Weakened Immune system, increased stress, higher blood pressure
Neurological Diseases: MS, ALS, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's
Acceleration of free radical damage, possibly contributing to cancerous mutations
Premature aging, frequent headaches, sinusitis, constipation, hemorrhoids
Osteoporosis, weak, brittle bones, hip fractures, bone spurs and calcium deposits
Osteoarthritis, joint pain, aching muscles and lactic acid buildup
Hormonal imbalances, Prostate problems and adult acne
Low energy and chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, acid indigestion and flatulence
Understanding pH
It is very important to understand that we are not talking about stomach acid, saliva pH, or the pH of your urine. We are talking about the pH of the body's fluids, tissues and blood, which is an entirely different matter.

pH stands for "potential of Hydrogen", which is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution, such as a mixture of liquids. It is measured on a scale of 0 to 14 -- the lower the pH the more acidic the solution, and the higher the pH the more alkaline the solution. When a solution is neither acid nor alkaline it has a pH of 7 (exactly in the middle), which is neutral. Your body's pH is best when between 7.36 and 7.44, which of course, is slightly alkaline.

Your Body Must Be Slightly Alkaline
We live and die at the cellular level. All of the cells (trillions of them) that make up the human body are slightly alkaline, and must maintain that slight alkalinity in order to function and remain healthy and alive. The body can suffer severe and prolonged damage due to high acidity -- a condition that may go undetected for years, yet ultimately become deadly.

According to recent medical studies, pH imbalances can be correlated to almost all health conditions, including heart disease, arthritis and cancer. Virtually all leading biochemists and medical physiologists have recognized that your pH (acid-alkaline balance) is the most important aspect of a balanced, healthy and youthful body.
Sounds like since losing weight you have not cleaned out the toxins from your body. When you lost weight that was when you probably started to show symptoms more dramatically but the problem IMO has been slowly developing while you were gaining fat since fat storing is how your body handles toxicity.

I think before running any more hormones or thyroid meds or want not you should do a cleanse, eat lots of alkaline foods and learn about the side effects of high acid levels in the body since it wont hurt you at all.

Eating acidic foods and being acidic (stress) casues red cell death and when your red blood cells die your frequently get poor bloodflow to your genitals and extremities, as before death, red blood cells lose their negative charge and clump together, making the travel to narrow capillaries and long travels almost impossible.

I strongly suggest a live blood analysis and i would bet 50$ that your red blood cell count is low and/or clumping together from acidity. I also think you have a food allergy and should take an allergy test BEFORE taking much more drastic measures that can only complicate and compound this issue.

"You have to go on TRT, start with HCG only, may work,
if not, add test."

I agree, this is good advice here. Run it by your doctor.

I think there are too many issuse to atribute it to any one solitary unfortunate physical factor. Id like to see what you eat in a day and please be completely honest. Also post what you used to eat before you lost weight. That would be a great tool alongside an idea of if you excercised and are on any meds, drugs or supps. Cheers man.

Any dr that stick a kid of 22 on TRT with out further examining other factors inrelation to other hormones should have their license revoked. I have ran into to many kids 19-21 year old on TRT that did not need to be. This way of practice makes me very disturbed about how Dr's look at patients. Alot of these young people underage of 28 should be handled with more care and further investigation then just looking for a bandaid approach. Majority of the time with in 3-6 months they can be back to were they were before they probably self castrated them selves by improper lifestyle, fad and unbalanced eating patterns. This is the area that I specialize in helping return the body back to way nature intented it to be. If the system does not kick bad in 6 months its not going too..

i dont have a diet routine, but i'll try to tell you what i eat mostly.

Breakfast scenarios:

1.Waffles with a bit of syrup. Egg whites. for fat either an egg yellow or some Peanut butter on the waffles. This is usually about 300 cals

2.Plain Oatmeal with eggs. 300 cals


Lunch scenarios;

1.Sandwich in whole wheat bread with lean protein and slice of cheese inside. The source of protein is often deli meat or grilled chicken breast. I'll have potato chips as a carb and fat source. I buy the all natural chips that are cooked in healthy fats.

2.Burgers in whole wheat buns. I use lean beef with a slice of cheese. I'll usually bake white or sweet potato as a carb side.

3.Fast food. I usually just stick to burgers without mayo. If i have enough cals to spare i'll get a small order of fries

** I always microwave some veggies and chomp them down with lunch. usually broccoli,peppers,spinach, etc.. basically whatever is in the freezer.


Dinner scenarios:

1.A repeat of one of the lunch choices

2.Whole wheat pasta with lean protein, add fats with oil or sauce, or sometimes i'll use a fatty protein instead.

3.Roast chicken, either half chicken or two white meat portions. Some form of carb side, bread or rice.

***once again i'll chomp some veggies just to do it.




Overall i always get at least 55g of fat. And at least 100g of protein. about 2100 calories which makes me feel like i'm starving. When i make food home i make sure i eat only complex carbs and include healthy fats where possible.

I take a fish oil and multivitamin randomly.

I'm not currently working out, but i try to remain active during the day. I walk around,climb the steps, do push ups, etc...


------------------------------------------------------

before losing weight i ate the typical american diet. High carb high fat just like everyone else, i drank about 3 caloric beverages per day.

breakfast was either skipped or i would have a bagel with jelly or cream cheese etc..
Lunch was fast food meal or something from the fridge(still junk really)
Dinner was food that was cooked at home, high carb, high fat. rice with meat and gravy. Or food from a take out spot or fast food.

weird thing is when i was overweight i never craved food. I just ate when hungry and that was that...now i feel like a fiend waiting for the next mealtime...

This is exactly what i expected. You my friend eat ALOT if not ALL acid forming foods.
There are three types of PH's for foods 1)Acid, 2) Alkaline and 3) Neutral.

Here's some reading please do more of your own.

pH of the Human Body is Critical for Health
(Continued from Page 1)



It’s not the bacteria or the viruses themselves that produce the disease, it’s the chemical by-products and constituents of these microorganisms enacting upon the unbalanced, malfunctioning cell metabolism of the human body that in actuality produce disease. If the body’s cellular metabolism and pH is perfectly balanced or poised, it is susceptible to no illness or disease.

So in other words, disease associated microorganisms do not originally produce a disease condition any more than a vulture produces a dead rabbit or rats produce garbage.

The diseased acidic cellular environment was created by a toxic diet, toxic environmental exposures and a toxic lifestyle supporting the morbid changes of germs to bacteria, bacteria to viruses, viruses to fungal forms and fungal forms to cancer cells in the body. This classical error of referring to symptoms as the disease is perpetrated to this day in all medical schools trickled down from the professors (whose bread is buttered by the pharmaceutical industry), to all med students with the intent of brainwashing the young, up and coming physicians to a kill mode mind-set and to be legal script writers and butchers who perform unnecessary surgical procedures.

The reason why all physicians are kept in the dark by medical schools teaching Pasteur’s germ theory is that if they are taught the truth that it’s the inner condition of the patient (i.e. oxygen depravation, nutritional deficiencies, acidic pH, built up toxins in and around the cells, poor circulation, toxic emotions, etc.), not the germs that creates the growth medium for bacteria, viruses, parasites or cancer cell growth, the majority of doctors would throw away their script pad and surgical knife and focus their treatment protocols on reestablishing a healthy cellular environment, which keeps the germs, bacteria and viruses in check.

By killing the viruses, bacteria or cancer cells with their destructive weapons of war, they trigger microzyma evolution that makes the enemy pathogens stronger by creating resistant strains reaping more disease in the future. Nobody correlates their newly formed disease a year later with the past drug therapy. The result if the truth was told, a multi-billion dollar sick care industry that has been meticulously built by the global elite for a century would be exposed and crumble like the Babylonian empire of old. There is no medical doctrine so potentially dangerous as a partial truth implemented as whole truth.

Because of political reasons, Antoine Bechamp’s name and research findings along with the germ theory controversy have been omitted from history, medical and biological books, even encyclopedias. It seems that the historical scientific assassination of Antoine Bechamp resulted in medical science’s monopolization of pharmaceuticals and vaccine research. This has meant untold misery for the human race. It’s ironic that Pasteur himself was reported to have admitted on his deathbed that Claude Bernard was right — the microbe is nothing, the terrain is everything, but would never give credit for Bechamp’s discoveries. Bechamp’s discovery in his early research, that all living things contain tiny granules, which he named microzyma’s, was the most profound discovery of the 20th century.

Microzyma’s Can Trigger Either Life Or Death

Microzyma’s (meaning small ferments), inhabits cells, blood and lymph fluid. They act as both the builder and recycler of organisms. They inhabit cells, the fluid between cells, the blood and the lymph. In the state of healthy terrain. microzyma’s act harmoniously and fermentation occurs normally and beneficially making healthy aerobic microbes like acidophilus and bifidus.

Under diseased pathological internal conditions (low oxygen, malnutrition, acidic pH, poor circulation, etc.), microzyma’s can change the faces of microbes like a chameleon. This is called pleomorphism. Pleo means many and morph means form. So pleomorphism means to change to many forms. These pathogens can either evolve or devolve depending on the surrounding conditions of the cell. The answer in disease processes lies in the condition of your cellular balance or will it support the development of unwanted guests?

In the early stages of acidic pH in the body’s tissues, the warning symptoms are mild. These include such things as skin eruptions, headaches, allergies, colds, flu and sinus problems. These symptoms are frequently treated (manipulated) with antibiotic drugs and suppressive medications. With continued suppression of the warning signals of an acidic and nutrient deficient environment, more serious symptoms arise with the disease driven deeper. Weakened organs and systems start to give way (heart, lung, thyroid, adrenals, the liver, kidneys, etc.).

Unfortunately, symptom manipulation with pharmacology creates a magical shell game of switching diseases, creating more serious symptoms and disease conditions in the future that are totally different from the original disease. The quick fix drug game of voodoo medicine is what’s causing the disease epidemic in this country and puts hospitals and doctors as the number three killer in the U.S.

So what is modem medicine doing with their destructive weapons of war? You can’t kill microzymas, they’re indestructible. You can only trigger a morbid evolution of anaerobic pathogens to molds, fungus, yeast and cancer. It’s the microzymas that are responsible for the decomposition of a dead body back to the soil and creating life to the soil for future plant growth.

Microzymas are an indestructible living entity that cannot be destroyed by heat, antibiotics, or any other weapon of war. My view is that the toxins (acids) from the microforms combine to provoke the body to produce symptoms of a healing crisis to purge or eliminate the toxic residues from the nose through a runny nose, the skin through sweat, the colon through diarrhea, and increased respiration. So it’s important to remember, it is not the pathogens themselves which initiate disease, they only show up because of an acidic, compromised, cell terrain. Mosquitoes seek the stagnant water, but they don’t cause the swamp to become stagnant.

All Disease Is Acid Related

In general, degenerative diseases are the result of acid waste build-up within weak cells and organs that are too weak to clean house. When we are born, we have the highest alkaline mineral concentration, establishing the highest pH. That is why most degenerative diseases do not occur when you are young. They occur usually after 40 years of age.

The underlying causes of cancer, heart disease, arteriosclerosis, high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, gout, kidney disease, asthma, allergies, psoriasis and other skin disorders, indigestion, diarrhea, nausea, obesity, tooth and gum diseases, osteoporosis, morning sickness, eye diseases, etc., are the accumulation of acids in tissues and cells, poor blood and lymph circulation, and poor cell activity due to toxic acidic residues accumulating around the cell membrane which prevent nutritional elements from entering the cell.

All scavengers breed like parasites. After food is digested and absorbed into the bloodstream it is carried to all 75 trillion cells of the body via the circulatory system. The body eliminates what it can and the remainder settles in the weakest cells. Those which are not strong enough to clean house. In this accumulating, deposited, dead waste matter and pustulant soup, germs like bacteria, viruses, fungus and parasites breed. Rotting takes place and pus (which is decomposed blood), parasites, flukes, tapeworms, hardened mucous and other acid waste products form. This, science calls disease.

And the name of the particular disease depends upon the location of the deposits of this acidic, toxic, pustulant soup. If the accumulating deposits are in the joints it’s called arthritis. If the poisonous waste matter accumulates in the pancreas and saturates the beta cells that synthesize insulin it’s called diabetes. If the toxic sludge is dumped in the lungs it’s called chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It’s the same disease. Wherever your weakest link in the chain of organs is, that’s where your genetic disposition for disease will be.

If the overload is too great for the blood, excess acid is dumped into the tissues and cells for storage. Then the lymphatic system and immune system must neutralize what it can and attempt to discard the toxic waste. If the lymphatic system is overloaded generally due to a lack of exercise, acid deposits will suffocate the cells and damage DNA. If the lymphatic system is pumping through exercise and circulation, they will pick up the acid wastes and neutralize them through the kidneys. Unfortunately, they must dump them right back into the blood stream. This will force the blood to attempt to gather more alkaline salts in order to compensate while stressing the liver and kidneys. This robs Peter to pay Paul.

Body Electric

A healthy condition depends upon a high level of electromagnetic negative charge on the surfaces of tissue cells. Acidity is the opposite charge and dampens out these electrical fields. If tissue pH deviates too far to the acid side, cellular metabolism will cease and oxygen deprivation will occur. Acidity and lack of oxygen are the ideal environmental condition for morbid microforms to flourish. These are the primary symptoms of disease. So in short, acute or recurrent illnesses and infections are either the attempt by the body to mobilize mineral reserves from all parts of the body, or crisis attempts at detoxification. For example, the body may throw off acids through the skin, producing symptoms such as eczema, dermatitis, acne, or other skin disorders. Chronic symptoms result when all possibilities of neutralizing or eliminating acids have been exhausted.

So unless the treatment actually removes acids from the body and replaces nutrient building blocks, the cure at best will be only temporary and a cover-up Band-Aid therapy, shoving the disease deeper into a chronic state. Remember, there is not one drug on the market that reduces the acidity of the body or addresses any kind of nutritional deficiency. The sobering fact is, almost all drugs are acidic, especially antibiotics, and add to the acid residues. And if the drugs were successful at removing acids from an infected area, the acid would migrate to some other weak tissue in the body that will create side effects there, unless the treatment involves the disposal of acids from all body organs. For this reason, today’s medical science is pathetic when it comes to the cure for degenerative and metabolic disease.

Cancer Cell Growth Is Caused By Acid

Let’s look at cancer. If you were to ask an allopathic doctor to explain cancer in a few words, the best that they can come up with after all these years of research is a cell mutation, a missing gene, or maybe a virus causing immuno-suppression. Since cancer is not a localized disease, but a systemic condition, it shows up in the body’s weakest link(s). I refer to the body’s weakest links as the dead zones because they carry a declining electromagnetic charge. All healthy cells carry an electromagnetic negative charge, but all fermented cells and their acids carry an electromagnetic positive charge.

These rotting cells and their acids act like a glue (attracting each other) because opposites attract, causing healthy cells to stick together. This leads to oxygen deprivation where healthy cells begin to rot. This is cancer. It’s my conclusion based on years of research and study that cancer and AIDS are nothing more or less than a cellular disturbance of the electromagnetic balance due to acid PH disorganization of the cellular microzymas, their morbid evolution to bacteria, yeast fungus and molds, and their production of exotoxins and mycotoxins. Cancer therefore is a four-letter word — ACID, especially lactic acid as a waste product due to the low oxygen level and waste products of yeast and fungus.

Dr. Otto Warburg, two time Nobel Prize winner, stated in his book, The Metabolism of Tumors. that the primary cause of cancer was the replacement of oxygen in the respiratory cell chemistry by the fermentation of sugar. The growth of cancer cells is initiated by a fermentation process, which can be triggered only in the absence of oxygen at the cell level. Just like over*worked muscle cells manufacture lactic acid by-products as waste, cancerous cells spill lactic acid and other acidic compounds causing acid pH.

If you cover your mouth, oxygen is cut off and carbon dioxide is built up as an acid waste and you will eventually pass out through asphyxiation. And if your body’s blood pH goes below seven, oxygen is cut off and you will be put into a coma or death will occur. The blood performs a balancing act in order to maintain the blood pH within a safe range of 7.35 - 7.45. Some cells instead of dying as normal cells do in an acid environment may adapt and survive by becoming abnormal cells like primitive yeast cells. These abnormal primitive yeast cells are called malignant cells. Malignant renegade cells do not communicate with brain function, or with their own DNA memory code. Therefore, malignant cells grow indefinitely and without order. This biological disorder is what science calls cancer This could be improved by an alkaline diet and boosting the immune system.

I'll toss in the idea that 55g of fats isn't quite as much as i'd like to see. If you want to try this, get some coconut oil and have 1tbsp fairly close to bedtime, right before would be nice. try it at the 1 tbsp for a few days, feel free to go to 2. should make a noticeable difference

Take what you will from the religious rantings but the diet info is spot on and at the center of why MANY people are sick, tired overweight and miserable.

pH of the Human Body is Critical for Health
(Continued from Page 2)



Diabetes Is Caused By Acid

The pancreas produces one of the highest pH body fluids - pancreatic juice with a pH of 8.8. A shortage of calcium ions in the body impairs the production and the release of the insulin hormone. This eventually leads to an acidic blood condition. With the accumulated acidic waste products coating the receptor sites of the insulin producing beta cells, insulin is prevented from being synthesized or utilized. Diabetes is the result. This could be improved by an alkaline diet and detoxification.

Kidney Disease is Caused By Acidity

As acidic waste products accumulate in the blood, the kidneys - the bloodstreams filter - become more taxed, leading to nephritis, uremic poisoning, bladder diseases, etc. All kidney disease is acid related, which can be improved by an alkaline diet. Kidney stones are salts of phosphoric acid and uric acid, generally combined with calcium and/or magnesium. These salts are acidic salts that gradually build up into a stone like object.

Afthough calcium and magnesium are in the salts, they are there to soften the poisonous effects of uric acid and phosphoric acid. Some people mistakenly believe that kidney stones are formed because there’s too much calcium. This is not true. Calcium compounds will dissolve in acidic urine, while a kidney stone will not. If you add calcium into the blood and lower blood acidity by an alkaline diet kidney stones will dissolve from the inside.

Allergies Are Acid Related

Allergies are an irritation/inflammation reaction appearing as allergy symptoms as a means of dealing with acid toxins. If a beneficial cleansing substance is taken such as wheat grass or fresh vegetable juice, sinus swelling, runny nose, skin reactions, tearing eyes, etc., are all ways of eliminating acid toxins. Thus, yeast and fungus whose poisons are acid may contribute significantly to your hay fever and sneezing. If you have no symptogenic yeast or fungus, it would be impossible for you to have allergies.

Obesity Linked To Acid pH

Over ingestion of carbohydrates and fats and not enough exercise to burn them as fuel causes our bodies to store fatty acids. Acetic acid, lactic acid and LDL cholesterol are the derivatives of fatty acid. Lactic acids and acetic acids lower the pH of body fluids drastically. This prevents the cellular engines from burning on all cylinders reducing metabolic rate. So a combination of lack of exercise, which reduces oxygen, toxic acidic residues around the cell, infiltration of morbid microforms in and around the cell and a reduction of peak performance energy burning from the mitochondria engines, causes obesity to set in.

With the obesity problem in this country, what exactly does this excess weight consist of? The answer is fatty acids. However, the body does not dispose of unburned food. This unburned food or fatty acids are stored in fat cells until they can be burned at a later time through some form of aerobics. To a point it is a reservoir to later be burned, but later never comes and we keep adding to the fatty acid reservoir. Acid coagulates blood and there is not much blood flow around fat. Usually the capillaries around the acid accumulation are clogged up. These fatty acids generally form under the skin, especially around the waste line for men and around hips, thighs and breasts for women. When you compare the face of an old woman with a young woman, you can see the difference in the build up fat in the face of the older woman due to lack of blood flow therefore loosing elasticity. This build up of fat in the face takes place gradually over time.

True understanding of the process of aging and obesity will give you the incentive to drink alkaline beverages and eat alkaline foods that burn fast. Whatever it takes to help your body dispose of acidic waste slowly and steadily should be implemented.

Gastro-Intestinal Disorders Linked To Acidity

All stomach disorders, indigestion, nausea, gas, gastric reflux, are symptoms again that are caused by excess acidity in the gastric region. That is why ant*acids are prescribed. The neutralizing of acid through ingestion of alkaline water, alkaline foods and alkaline minerals, will help to alleviate the acid related intestinal disorders including ulcers without taking destructive antacids and ibuprofen.

Arthritis is Caused By Acidity

Many different forms of arthritis are the result of acid accumulation from the blood into the joints and wrists. It is this accumulated acid that damages cartilage and coats the cells that produce synovial and bursa fluids causing a dryness which irritates the joints, manifesting swelling. With detoxification coupled with an alkalizing diet, arthritis will disappear.

Gout Is Caused By An Acid Condition

Gout is an arthritic disease resulting from an excess of uric acid crystals in the blood from digestion of red meat, seafood, alcohol or poultry. The uric acid salts deposit in the surrounding tissues of the feet, hands and toes causing swelling and severe pain due to the broken glass like structure of the uric acid crystals especially in the big toe. The only solution in mainstream medicine for gout is deadly painkillers and anti-inflammatories, which are both acidic and further irritate the joints. Unfortunately, the joints have limited blood circulation to carry out the acid wastes. With an alkaline diet and increased circulation, gout will disappear.

Eye Diseases Linked To Acidity

We generally do not consider the change in our vision to an acid condition. As we accumulate phosphates and urates etc. in our cells, the cells loose more oxygen. This causes more unburned sugar in the cell that will bond protein molecules. The end result is that the cells and tissues get stiff, hard and inflexible. These calcium deposits collecting on the optic nerve or ganglia are called cataracts. Loss of vision and macular degeneration are the same.

Morning Sickness is Acid Related

When a woman gets pregnant, the fetus takes priority getting all the necessary alkaline minerals since the baby is born with the highest alkalinity. This means that while the mother is sleeping she looses alkaline minerals creating blood acidity. This phenomenon is known as morning sickness. By eating an alkaline diet and drinking alkaline beverages morning sick*ness will disappear. (Editor's Note: Some authors also believe that vegetables cause morning sickness as they contain toxins harmless to adults but toxic to fetuses. They suggest eating only fruit and carbohyrdrates).

(Editor's Note: It is best if these are eaten raw)

A perfect ratio of acid pH daily is 80% alkaline and 20% acid in the form of grains. eggs and acidic fruits.

pH Values Of Different Drinks

A popular brand of cola — 2.5. It takes 32 glasses of a 10.0 pH alkaline water to neutralize one can of cola)
Diet soft drinks —3.2
Popular brand beer — 4.7 pH.
Distilled water —7.0 pH. Filtered tap water — 8.4 pH.
Fresh vegetable juice (greens) — 8.9 pH.
Alkaline water — 10.0 pH.
Blood with a pH value of 7.45 contains 64.9 % more oxygen than blood with a pH value of 7.3. An astounding difference for just a minor variance. Acidity of some soft drinks is caused by carbon dioxide, which is a waste product we breathe out. Carbonated beverages are a waste product, which the body rejects in the form of a burp. This is a double whammy. Not only do you shove a toxic residue down your throat when drinking them, these drinks are tilled with caramel coloring, phosphoric acid and ten tea*spoons of sugar, which creates more of an acid envi*ronment and wipes out your immune system for up to four hours.

Human Body pH Fluid Values

Stomach juice (hydrochloric acid) — 1.5 pH.
Skin —4.7 pH.
Saliva —7.1 pH.
The cell — 7.1 pH.
Blood —7.35 to 7.45 pH.
Pancreatic juice — 8.8 pH.
When I talk about acidic or alkaline food, I am not talking I about how they taste. For example, oranges, lemons and limes taste acidic and have a pH of 3.5, but this acidity is generated by organic acids, which can all be burned away through digestion. However, inside these fruits there are alkaline minerals such as calcium, potassium and magnesium. Therefore, oranges, lemons and limes are considered to be an alkaline forming food. A large amount of potassium is found in organic soybeans, carrots, tomatoes and fruits such as apricots, avocados, bananas, dates, oranges and watermelon. Sodium and potassium also work with proteins, phos*phates and carbonates to keep a proper balance be*tween the amount of acid and alkaline in the blood.

Satan’s Assault Against The Blood

Everything revolves around an evil system creating acids to the blood. The life of the flesh is in the blood (Lev. 17:11). Satan is contaminating the bloodline with acids. Just look at some of the weapons he uses to take man out. Alcohol — acid. Cigarettes — acid. Coffee — acid. Sugar — acid. Carbonated beverages — acid. All of your fast food restaurants — acid with toxic congestive residues that are poison.

This is an evil ploy to acidify and contaminate the blood of God’s people. Daily we are assaulted with toxic industrial contaminants ranging from pesticides, herbicides, fossil fuels, fluorocarbons, acid rain, pollution, carbon monoxide, refined processed foods, sugar laden beverages, acid rock music, stress, anger, bitterness, etc. By getting us to ingest, drink and expose ourselves to an array of toxic chemicals that contaminate the blood, and by depleting the soil of alkaline minerals through corrupt farming practices, Satan is slowly taking mankind out.

As long as there are sufficient amounts of alkaline minerals in the body, poisonous acids are neutralized. There is a family of minerals that are especially suited to neutralizing, or detoxifying strong acids: sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium. They exist as salts in our tissues and are highly alkaline. A healthy body maintains alkaline reserves by recruiting elsewhere if insufficient minerals are not available from the diet, such as bone (calcium), or muscle (magnesium). So if we get back to high alkaline, organic fruits and vegetables which have rich top soil, and farmers rotated their crops and didn’t use the acidic pesticides and herbicides, then we could alkalize the blood and keep the pH high and keep the reserves high enough to where the body is not going to be robbing Peter to pay Paul.

The Acid - Alkaline Battle In Our Bodies

This is a spiritual chemical battle going on 24 hours a day, every day in the blood and tissues. If you take the spiritual blinders off, you will notice that everything in this world is perpetrating an acid environment. God is trying to alkalize you and Satan is trying to acidify you. The battle between life and death and the struggle of humanity is between acid and alkaline pH. This so-called complicated spiritual battle for the physical body is as simple as that. Satan gives us acid music, acid foods, acid beverages, acid rain, acid emotions (anger; fear; bitterness, stress, anxiety, etc.), acid pharmaceuticals, acid recreational drugs (cocaine, heroine, ecstasy, LSD, etc.), acid pesticides, acid herbicides, acid fungicides, acid industrial products, acid exhaust (cars, planes, etc.), acid petroleum toxins and acid petroleum based chemicals, etc. This is spiritual warfare at the highest level.

What would combat or neutralize this satanic assault to acidify mankind? Good clean air (oxygen), spiritual healing music, alkaline foods (fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes), alkaline beverages (fresh pure water; herbal teas, fresh-squeezed fruit and vegetable juices etc.), positive thoughts and emotions, following the fruits of the spirit (love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, self control), exercise, fasting, being outdoors in the sun, herbs and natural whole food supplements, organic non-toxic cleaning products, etc. When life is in the blood through living nutrients and the pH is in proper balance, death and disease cannot exist. Are you choosing death through an acid lifestyle or life through following God’s simple formula of alkalinity? The Bible says that we have the choice between life and death:

“I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:” (Deuteronomy 31:19) Which are you going to choose?

I'll toss in the idea that 55g of fats isn't quite as much as i'd like to see. If you want to try this, get some coconut oil and have 1tbsp fairly close to bedtime, right before would be nice. try it at the 1 tbsp for a few days, feel free to go to 2. should make a noticeable difference


since past several weeks i have upped the fat to more like 70g per day. Its hard to have more on 2100 cals cause the portion sizes dwindle with the more fats i add.

maybe i should eat like 90g of fat per day for a week or so and see what happens. its probably gonna raise my cals up by about 250 per day though


my mom has coconut oil. its a solid oil looks like a white paste. Can i just add it to my food or is there something beneficial to taking it just before bed?

somewhatgifted,

what should i do to be more alkaline. it seems that all the common foods are acidic...

what common foods can i eat to be more alkaline? besides fruit and veggies

basically i'm asking what proteins and carbs should i eat mostly?


you know whats weird, a doc once told me that my oxygen saturation was low he tested it with a fingerclip attached to a little device

you can add it to food, but its a little more beneficial all at once right before bed.

Your body makes cholesterol out of saturated fats, which it then makes pregnenelone from the cholesterol, dhea from pregnenelone and testosterone from that dhea. By causing a saturated fat spike during that time while your body is producing the most testosterone it seems to add a noticable boost to testosterone production.

If you have black microscope down it will tell you that your cells are probably clumped together and also causing cell morphing as you watch the "vacume cleaner" try to clean up the crap from the acidity. 100 grams of fats in proper ratio from sprouted seeds, proper ratio. with moderate clean protein, with good probiotics (kefir, goats milk, cocconut yogurt,) , lots of fresh greens (walmart prepackage garden veggies 2 buckl) so there is no excuses except one being lazy. 1-2 capsules of fish oils will not do crap. In your condition I would suspect more like 10-15 a day or 2 tsp of carlsons fish oils for a good 2-3 months with good natural vitamin E..As you can see your debatchery of improper eating and lifestyle ending up pretty much self castrating you. I see this happen too many time over and over again if dr's would only pool their head out of their asses to really look for the root cause of problem.
