Post by: Sam on May 15, 2013, 12:48:16 pm
Started reading this book, and so far I like what I am reading.   It doesnt go into the importance of Estrogen in th eprocess as one revieweer points out, but lots of good info otherwise.

As i reqd more of this book i m blown away,  the author addresses much of what we discuss on this forum in a very factual and concise fashion.    Chapter 4 on blood testing has been an eye opener for me.

Same here.  He has many huge insights.  One interesting one was stated here by Kwn:

https://www.peaktestosterone.com/forum/index.php?topic=1250.msg11847;topicseen#msg11847

"Then 3 months later at the end of summer 2012 symptoms started to creep up again.  I had a few rather stressful family events, and they might have contributed to the picture.  First I started to notice that penis became ‘numb’ – according to Morgentaler, one of the low T symptoms.  Then GRADUALLY I lost libido, and also gradually I lost orgasmic sensation.  I could maintain erection, have sex, but ejaculation did not result in orgasm.  Plus on the top of that I started to experience premature ejaculation.  The intercourse was under 1 minute – and this is it.  I had no control over it.  I waited until November 2012 and finally decided to go to urologist again.  He measured T – came back at 122.  So I decided to proceed with the T replacement therapy."

This is a classic "porn reboot" symptom and I wonder how many of those guys are low T.

Also, we had another great thread on how Morgentaler actually gave testosterone to prostate cancer patients.  Now that was supposed to kill them of course, but it actually did the opposite!

So, yes, he is on my Peak Testosterone SuperHero list.

Any insights of his that hit you, let us know...

Good to hear Peak,   I wish I came accross this book earlier, not so much for the information since I've learned as much if not more from your site, but that I could have used it in my early discussions with the Kaiser docs.

Anyway,  it's a good read.

Yes, he along with Crisler and Shippen are the real pioneers.  Actually, apostles may be a better word...
