African Alligator Peppers ??
« on: May 08, 2013, 10:20:39 pm »
Hello, I'm Ricardo a 36 year old male, whom works out 5+ times a week but began experiencing ED during my last relationship. I thought that perhaps this was due to my tumor and surgery ( which I never took any of the prescribed meds) something went wrong down there and  I couldn't get it up nor maintain as usual  never the less she was unhappy and we soon expired. I then began an extreme diet of all veggies which my mother told me how can you get Iron, Zinc and protein on such a diet. Two years later ( today) I'm currently very low in libido and my testosterone is 192, lower than it was last year ( btw no STD's had 3 done in 16 moths) my current girlfriend is more beautiful than the last and knows of my issue but I do feel if I can't correct this issue soon ill be out with her as well. I'm currently taking 1ml weekly of Test Cyphonite it hasn't improved in 3 mo of weekly injections, I have extensively bought your web books and read the informative articles. Everything from Palmgrante juice, raw garlic at night to beet juice. But one thing has showed a slight uptick in libido.. Alligator pepper?
Are you familiar? Would this do it or is it the injections?

Sorry to respond so late and of course sorry to hear about all the struggles.  I just noticed your thread...

I've got some questions and comments for you:

--What kind of tumor are you talking about and what kind of surgery?

--A vegetarian diet is extremely healthy and has a great reputation in the studies.  However, you can do a vegetarian diet the wrong way of course.  I am pretty close to a lacto-ovo-vegetarian myself, but I emphasize whole foods, superfoods and low glycemic foods.  I also consume very little wheat or soy, as these are heavily GMO'd and linked to a variety of medical issues.

--It doesn't sound like your doc has done any follow up testing on your testosterone levels in 3 months?  Surely he or she is going to do this soon?

--The ml does not matter that much.  What I'd like to know is how much cypionate are you getting weekly?

--The reason the cypionate may not be working is that you may be aromatizing too much.  Did your doctor measure your estradiol after the cypionate?  Or did he/she discuss anastrazole (Arimidex)?  It is VERY common to need Arimidex, especially when you first start cypionate.

--No, I haven't heard of Alligator Pepper.  I do know that Vijay Singh got hammered by the PGA for deer antler spray!  But forget about the supplements for a bit.  You're a young guy and shouldn't need any supplements:  the testosterone and estradiol control should do the job for you.

--Important question #1:  Are you overweight?

--Important question #2:  Do you want kids?

CAUTION:  With a tumor history, it is doubly important to check anything we say with your doc.

I had  a benign Whartin's Tumor ( of the salivary gland) the procedure is called a perotidectomy.  I inject 1cc of Watson Cyphonite weekly. I'm schedule for a follow up June 3 I will ask him to test for E2 as well. Not overweight at all 6'1 200lb, workout 4-5x a week w/ heavy weights. Yes me and the Girlfriend desire children.

Great on the weight and the weights!

Did you doctor tell you that HRT will almost always greatly decrease fertility?  If you want to preserve fertility, there are other options such as Clomid and HCG Monotherapy that may work for you.  Discuss with your doc and, ideally, a fertility specialist.

I will bet that your problem now is E2 (estradiol).  But you should have total testosterone and estradiol pulled to double check.

Also, I am a little worried that your doctor is not monitoring your total testosterone.  Not all men respond perfectly in parallel and so how does he know you're not a little low or high in testosterone.  Plus, not checking your estradiol shows a real ignorance on his or her part in my opinion.

We have any threads on the forum discussing this and how for some guys, this makes all the difference in the world.

Also, estradiol is VERY linked to male health.  Check out these important articles:

And here is a bunch more info on the estrogens in us guys.

Thank you for your articles as I come to realize your site is most helpful. My Endo dr. Flowers here in Atlanta has ran the most comprehensive test to find via Saliva & Blood samples I have high Estrodol ( which can increase my chances of Prostate cancer, I believe this to be inherited since my dad is battling PSC now stage 3) saliva  Estrodol is at 4.6 pg/ml testosterone is @ 554 pg/ml DHEAS 35.4 and Cortisol is hight after the morning 3.1 to ease the cortisol he gave me Adrenevive , lowered my Testosterone ( been taking  1 & 2 ml every week since January, to combat the hight Estrodol I take Anastrozole 1 mg 3x week every other day ( mom, wed, fri) and a huge supplement of D2 Vit D @ 50k iu 1x weekly he suggested as you have thru your blogs to adhere to a Mediterranean/ Paleolithic nutrition he did not suggest DHEA for me at the moment. I've also been set on a diet that increases protein intake to 100 gms or more and carbs under 100grms per day. I hope this begins to heal as this has been 3 rought years for me.

Hey sorry to hear about your Dad.  And sorry you're struggling as well.

Here are a few comments:

--Anastrozole at 1 mg 3X per week is a very big dose.  I'm not saying that's not right, but just letting you know that's a big dose even for men that have twice your testosterone level.

--I'm actually not a big Paleo or Low Carb guy and have a lot on my site about it.  I try not to get "preachy" about it though, so you can ask questions if you want and, otherwise, I'll leave you in peace.  :)  The diets that I think are best backed by research are Mediterranean and Low Fat and these will give you the best blood flow for erections (along with many other benefits imo).

--Why is your doctor giving you D2??  No one uses D2 any more.  That's definitely old school and I mean really old school.  I would ask why you are not on D3.  I'd like to know the answer to that one...

It is true that D2 has this advantage:

http://www.nutraingredients.com/Research/Genetic-variation-may-affect-vitamin-D3-but-not-D2-supplements-Study

But notice that the dosages were very small in the study.  If you want to boost levels, you can just give more and should.  So I don't get it...
