Simple Remedies | Deep breathing for low testosterone


Oxy-pause is the abbreviation for oxygen pause, my term for a brief pause taken to get some additional oxygen. Oxy-pause is a few minutes of Feather Breathing combined with a conscious attempt to break up the hold of the thinking mind over the bodily functions, such as rapid heart rate, tight muscles, increased tone of arteries, excess acidity in the stomach, or spasm of muscles in various body tissues. The common consequences of all of these negative bodily responses is less oxygen. Oxygen deficiency causes yet more oxygen deficiency. Oxy-pause breaks this cycle. It controls the negative effects—for brief periods initially with limited results—and allows additional oxygen to help restore oxygen balance (homeostasis) for long-term health. I urge my patients to practice oxy-pause at home and then do it while at work for best clinical results.

Oxy-pauses taken frequently and for brief moments are extremely beneficial for individuals with adrenal weakness caused adrenal hypervigilence due to severe and persistent stress. These pauses go a long way in creating internal conditions for adrenal regeneration.

The idea of writing this short piece was prompted by a review of blood testosterone values during a recent visit with a man in his late thirties. He consulted me for chronic fatigue, myalgia (muscle pain), ADHD, GERD (gastric reflux disorder), and sinusitis. He responded well to our program initially and then relapsed. He had low blood testosterone level at the first visit. This is not uncommon in chronically unwell young men due to decreased production of the hormone in the adrenal glands. The levels rose with treatment and showed rapid and deep falls in spite of testosterone supplementation (oral 10 mg daily and three 100 mg pellets insertions in April 2009, June 2009, and August 2009). Following are his testosterone values (in ng/dL):

November 2008 146
July 2009 425
January 2010 288
August 2010 127

Such rapid and sharp drops in testosterone levels nearly always indicate severe and persistent stress—separation from one’s nature that is deeply disappointing. I learned that he faced ongoing marital strife and engaged in endurance exercise for relief. Such exercise creates a double jeopardy and I have seen this pattern of testosterone drops in several young men. Intense exercise—whatever the benefits of temporary endorphin highs it yields—actually deepened the underlying adrenal deficiency.

I suggested that he take frequent breaks during his vigorous exercise breaks, and take oxy-pauses during the day with Freather Breathing. More important, he should plan to spend more time with his children but only in ways fully approved by his wife. He asked why it was important that he seek his wife’s approval of his plan to spend more time with his children. I told him not to give me a hard time and just do as I say. He grinned broadly.

The Cortical Monkey loves misery. It thrives on recycling past misery. When that is not sufficient, it pre-cycles feared, future misery. In my neuro-energetic model, the Monkey feeds the “anger ells” in the brain, which grow deeper roots. He had been sad during the visit and his eyes became sadder when he spoke about his wife. Then he said that his Monkey had grown into a gorilla.

Testosterone is a Health Hormone

Majid Ali, M.D.

In the minds of most people, testosterone is a hormone involved with male sexual function. This is a serious mistake. It is the root of most misconceptions about the roles of this hormone in preserving memory and other mental functions, muscle strength, heart health, bone resilience, and other functions in both men and women.

It is essential to recognize that all so-called sex hormones (testosterone, estrogens, and progesterone) are “health hormones” and are responsible for the health of all hormones. We really do not need any studies to show that these hormones are essential for memory or the health of the heart and bones. Testosterone belongs to the class of androgen steroid hormone and plays the primary role in the development of male reproductive tissues, such as the testis and prostate. It also promotes the development of secondary sexual characteristics, such as larger muscle and bone masses and the growth of body-hair. It is the principal sex hormone in males but is also crucial for female sexuality. Testosterone is a powerfully anabolic steroid. An adult human male produces about ten times more testosterone than an adult human female. However, females are more sensitive to the hormone.

New Study Finds Testosterone Replacement Therapy Does Not Increase Cardiovascular Risks in Men with Low Testosterone Levels

An important new study of men who have undergone testosterone replacement therapy has found that taking supplemental testosterone does not increase their risk of experiencing a major adverse cardiac event, such as a heart attack or stroke.

Researchers at the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute in Murray, Utah, which is the flagship facility for the Intermountain Healthcare system, studied 5,695 men between the ages of 53 and 71. The men, all patients at Intermountain Healthcare hospitals, had initial low testosterone levels.

Researchers found that men who received testosterone supplementation to achieve normal or high testosterone levels had reduced overall rates of major adverse cardiac events at one and three years after their initial low levels of testosterone were measured, compared to other men who had persistently low levels of testosterone. The lower rate of cardiac events included a reduction in the adjusted risk of death and a reduction in heart attacks.

From  Intermountain Medical Center

Testosterone plays important roles maintaining cardiovascular health. For example, maintaining normal testosterone levels in elderly men improve many parameters which are thought to reduce cardiovascular disease risk, such as improved insulin functions, control of insulin toxicity, better glycemic control, increased lean body mass, and decreased abdominal (visceral) fat mass. The mechanisms of these actions involve protein synthesis and growth of those tissues with androgen receptors. In physiologic doses, testosterone has anti-inflammatory effects and improves the fluid characteristics of the circulating blood. For example, it regulates the population of a type of receptor on platelet-making cells in the bone marrow called thromboxane A2 receptors. In mammals, testosterone is primarily produced in the testes of males and the ovaries of females. Smaller amounts are secreted by the adrenal glands.

Testosterone and Cardiovascular Health

Does Testosterone Increase the Risk for Cardiovascular Disease?

My simple answer: No, testosterone does not increase the risk for cardiovascular disease. If so , and I anticipate the question, then what might we make of the recent study published in late 2013 in the online journal PLOS One which found higher risk of cardiovascular events in middle-age and older men who received testosterone supplementation? My answer: I am not surprised that men with cardiovascular diseases suffered more heart and brain events. Testosterone is expected to increase the desire of men receiving the hormone to do more to enjoy life, which may pose a hazard for men receiving large doses of heart and brain drugs. This is what the PLOS One study actually reported. And I welcome the study except for one thing: the report did not highlight this crucial aspect of the finding.

Overselling Testosterone, Dangerously

The above was the title of an editorial in The New York Times on February 5, 2014. That did not surprise. Editorials of the Times nearly always reflect only the opinions of drug doctors. The Times journalists, of course, have no personal experience or perspective on complex medical issues which they address. They are not expected to.

I read the Times editorial twice to see if the writer knew anything about the essential point I make above—the special risk faced by heavily drugged men with heart disease and stroke who might be take inappropriately prescribed testosterone supplementation. I was not surprised. There was not a single word written about it. Nor was there recognition of the fact that PLOS study had absolutely no relevance to people without heart disease and stroke who show sharp drops in the blood hormone levels due to stress and environmental toxicities on sequential laboratory testing.

This is what knowledgeable and astute integrative do before prescribing testosterone supplementation. But, how would The New York Times know this? They never seek guidance from integrative doctors.

Below are some revealing quotes from the Times editorial:

A large study has found substantial risks in prescribing testosterone to middle-age and older men for a variety of ailments. One part of the study found that testosterone doubled the risk of cardiovascular disease in more than 7,000 men who were 65 years old or older, essentially confirming findings in previous studies. The other part found that testosterone almost tripled the risk of heart attacks in a group of more than 48,000 middle-age men with previous histories of heart disease. The harm in both cases occurred within 90 days of receiving the prescription..”

Note the words “tripled the risk of heart attacks in a group of men with previous histories of heart disease.

Here is another quote: “The reason seems clear. Drug companies have shamelessly pushed the notion, to doctors and to the public, that their testosterone-boosting product can overcome a supposed disease called “low T,” which is characterized by feelings of fatigue, loss of sexual drive, depressed moods, an increase in body fat and decrease in muscle strength, among other symptoms.” Here I applaud the Times.

Majid Ali, M.D.
The low testosterone state is a spreading scourge of our time. Changing testosterone profiles in the general population say much about the shape of things to come. When I see men with blood testosterone levels above 750 ng/dL, they are nearly always sixty years of age or older, except for men who have received anti-androgen therapies for prostate cancer. When I see men with blood testosterone levels below 125 ng/dL, they are nearly always under forty years of age or younger. Recently, I saw a couple. The wife complained of dry skin and acne of recent onset. The husband suffered fatigue, loss of libido, and felt some muscle loss. The tests showed the wife’s blood testosterone level to be higher than that of the husband.

Are You Low on Testosterone from Majid Ali on Vimeo.

Examples of High Testosterone values

* A 68-year-old man who worked at Ground Zero became very ill. Fortunately for him, he received robust integrative nutritional therapies (including intravenous infusions)and bowel and liver detox measures. His blood testosterone level was 883 ng/dL in 2009.

* A 77-yr-man with allergy and a testosterone value of 728.

* A 78-yr-man with recurrent viral infections, arthritis, and incremental stress had the following testosterone values:

2002: 705 ng/dL

2005: 592 ng/dL

2010: 552 ng/dL

* A 68-yr-man with GERD, hypertension, and three pacemaker ablations for cardiac arrythmias with a testosterone value of 689:

* A 62-yr-man with allergy and chronic fatigue and a testosterone value of 674.

Examples of Low Testosterone Values

A father-son pair

* 12-old-son : testosterone 437
* 43-old-father with diabetes Testosterone 322

A husband-wife pair

* 51-old-husband : testosterone 128

* 48-old-wife Testosterone 245

Rapidly Falling Testosterone Levels

A27-year-old man was hospitalized for fatigue, muscle pain, and heart rhythm irregularity. Atrial fibrillation was dignosed and he was treated with intravenous cortisone, coumadin, digoxin, and a pacemaker ablation was considered after three days. Fortunately he converted on his own. Later he was treated with antiviral and antibiotic treatment for one year. His fatigue and muscle pain symptoms worsened and he was disabled with problems of mood, memory, and mentation. Laboratory tests revealed high levels of antibodies to mold and mold toxins. His adrenal gland test showed sever stress. The testosterone values are given below:

Dec. 2007 687

Mar. 2008 535

April 2009 482

April 2010 436

A 74-year-old New Yorker with hypertension and chronic sinusitis went through high emotional stress from a bad relationship (betrayal) between Sept 2009 to Feb 2010. His blood pressure values rose from 130-135 systolic range to 150/90. He suffered loos of libido and developed muscle flabbiness. His waste line increased. He wondered whether he needed to leave the city to get better. His testosteron levels are given below.

Majid Ali, M.D.

If you have recently gained weight, noticed a belly bulge, and felt a flabbiness of muscles, you are probably running low on testosterone. If you have also noticed a drop in libido, that is even more likely. What should you do? Get a blood testosterone level test done to validate your suspicion. If the test results show a level below 450, you are running low. (Blood testosterone levels are reported in nanogram/100 milliliters). A level of 600 would be good and one of over 750 ng/dL would be excellent.

What should you do next? Learn more about testosterone. Read my article entitled “The Low Testosterone Epidemic” on this site. Here is some information from that article that should stir your interest in the subject:

Examples of Low Testosterone Values

A father-son pair

12-old-son : Testosterone 437

43-old-father with diabetes Testosterone 322

A husband-wife pair

What should you do next? Learn how to regenerate your “testo-producing cells” in the testes and adrenal glands. You may need supplementation with DHEA, keto-DHEA, or testosterone. For more information, please consider viewing my 3-DVD set video seminar entitled “Hormones.”

A1c Blood Test Is Unreliable for Diabetes Screening

The A1c test a useful blood test that indicates the average of blood glucose levels during the preceding 80 to 100 days. It measures the percentage of a blood protein that becomes “sticky” due to sugar attached to it. The test value rises with the rising levels of blood sugar (glucose).

In healthy people, 5 to 5.5 percent of hemoglobin is sticky with sugar (glycated hemoglobin is the scientific term for it). A value of 6.5* or higher on more than two occasions is accepted as a valid criterion for diabetic diagnosis. The red blood cells have a life span of about 120 days and that explains the value of the A1c test in assessing blood glucose levsls over a period of 80-100 days.

The Value and Pitfalls of A1c Test

In general, the A1c test is useful for monitoring the success of diabetes treatment A value of 5.6% or less is considered optimal. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends that every diabetic should have an A1C test done a minimum of twice a year, with more frequent testing for those with poor control or changes in treatment. I use this test more often.

It is a mistake to rely on the A1c test to exclude the diagnosis of diabetes in the initial screening. There are simply far too many errors made in such testing. I illustrate my point:

Case One – Diabetes With Normal A1c Level

Majid Ali, M.D.

A1c blood tests is used for screening for diabetes. In my view this test is far too unreliable to be used for this purpose. In this A1c Test Series, I present case studies to support my position.

Glucose in the blood sticks to A1c protein contained in red blood cells. It is called hemoglobin and carries oxygen. Proteins attached to sugars are called glycoproteins, which that makes A1c a glycoprotein. A1c is known by several names, including glycated hemoglobin, hemoglobin A1c, HbA1c, A1C, and Hb1c.

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) advises that diabetes be diagnosed when the A1c test value is 6.5% or higher of total hemoglobin (48 mmol/l or more). This position is not supported by any reliable data.

Case Study

A 54 yr-old 5′ 11″ man weighing 265 lbs.  consulted me for for hypertension (BP (185/120), shortness of breathing on walking, allergy, liver enlargement (with liver cell death [Steatosis]) and enlarged prostate. The presence of diabetes was ruled out by his doctor on the basis of a A1c test which was considered “within normal limits). The Table below presenrs his insulin and glucose profiles clearly establishing the diagnosis of diabetes Type 2. After eight weeks of integrative management his A1c test value of 5.1%.
