Things You Should Know

Male Pattern Baldness

Male pattern baldness is due to the extra hydrogen attached to the testosterone molecular chain producing DHT which is a toxin that causes a loss in hair production.  Men who take anabolic steroids often lose their hair.  Hereditary factors can also be the reason for hair loss.  There are medications that can block the extra hydrogen from attaching to the testosterone chain, allowing the hair follicle to re-grow.  However, medications have side effects.  

Clean the Colon

The intestines is comprised of about two pounds of bacteria.  The bacteria helps break down food to be transported into the bloodstream.  From eating junk, processed food, refined fats and sugars the colon collects toxins.  It is important to clean the colon to rid of these toxins.  In my opinion I feel that most people who suffer from weight gain around the abdomen and waist have an accumulation of toxic build up in the colon that causes poor nutrient exchange.  Once the colon is cleaned out the weight gain is reduced and nutrient absorption is increased.  The colon should be cleaned out twice a year.  You should eat fibrous vegetables; broccoli, spinach, kale, green peppers,  every day to help keep the colon healthy. 


Testosterone is an anabolic hormone that helps with the production of muscle tissue.   As we age testosterone levels drop.  Testosterone levels can remain stable if you exercise, get enough sleep, and live a non-stressful life.  Exercise helps boost the production of testosterone.  Sleep helps release growth factors that produce testosterone. Lack of sleep will decrease testosterone levels.  Living a stressful life can decrease a drop in testosterone levels.   Keeping testosterone high in your system will prolong life and aging.
