    ➧ Click here to watch Greg’s YouTube video.

    Erectile Dysfunction is an extremely common disorder among men worldwide. So much so that it is estimated that 322 million men will be afflicted by the year 2025. Men experience increased symptoms of ED as they age by 10% per decade of life and researchers are seeing onset of symptoms in younger men due to changes in lifestyle like higher rates of obesity and alcohol or substance abuse. Other factors that contribute to erectile dysfunction are conditions related to vascular disease that impede circulatory function, neurological conditions, physiological and hormonal issues, surgeries, injuries, and mental health conditions or side effects caused by the medication used to treat these conditions.

    Testosterone Replacement Therapy: Not Just a Guy Thing

    Would it surprise you to know that as far back as 4,000 years ago, intentional castration was used to create eunuchs and control sexual function? What if I told you the ancient Romans ingested animal testes to promote fertility and strength?

    It is apparent that ancient societies understood the effect of testicular function on energy, libido, sexual function, and masculinity. It wasn’t until 40 centuries later, in 1929, that testosterone was first isolated, and four years after that in 1935 that the first studies were published on the chemical synthesis of testosterone. This led to the introduction of testosterone injections and pellets for use in male patients for energy, strength, fertility, and erectile function — what we call testosterone deficiency today.

    Great news for the fellas, but probably not for the ladies, right? Not so fast! As

    Testosterone replacement therapy and anti-aging treatments are in extreme demand due to current trends in fitness, or lack thereof, that permeates our society. As a whole, our routine diet and level of activity is very poor, and the effects are obvious. We are seeing dramatic increases in obesity and comorbidities that go along with it. Many patients are turning to the new weight loss wonder drugs as a quick fix, but the underlying issues of a healthy body and healthy lifestyle are of principle importance. Hormone levels and body composition change as we age, but we have means to address these issues and improve our quality of life and vitality.

    Oral testosterone: What you need to know

    Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is an important piece in the management of aging and overall health for men from their early adulthood to their golden years. The understanding of testosterone and testicular function has been pursued for thousand of years. The ancient Greeks, Romans, and Chinese used castration to create soldiers, harem guards, and infertile sexual partners. (1) This illustrates a long-standing interest in what we know today about testosterone, the endocrine system, and reproductive systems. This led to the consumption of animal testes and testicular extracts to promote fertility and strength. (2,3)

    By the 1930s, our technology and knowledge allowed for extraction and synthesis of testosterone compounds for patient use. (4,5,6) The use of testosterone injections and implanted testosterone pellets became therapeutic options for treating patients with
