Testosterone: A Better Path To Longevity?
As the Founder of Helix Mobile Wellness and Research, I’ve been proud to open our company under the goal to enhance the longevity of others.
Testosterone has a weird name in many circles. There is absolutely a plethora of snake-oil operations and chopshops that give testosterone (and hormone balance for that matter) a lousy name. Ignoring that fact, I do believe that testosterone is a critical part to longevity.
Within my family, both sides suffer from diabetes, heart disease, obesity and various forms of depression. Of note, my mother’s side is strongly Himalayan (amongst many other ethnicities), while my father’s is Indian/Pakistani. While my father’s side tends to have “B” blood types, my mother’s side has the original “O-” blood types – when you couple the “O-” blood type (the first blood type ever) with the Himalayan roots, you can basically argue that I’m a walking yeti.
For that fact… I do wonder if certain people are simply more prone to hormone fluctuations by a particular age. After all, the first humans didn’t live many years – 35 years old was usually considered a senior age. But with better living and medical breakthroughs, the boundaries have been greatly pushed, with some areas even projecting life expectancies beyond 80 years old. But how many of those years, particularly those years past the age of 35, are lived feeling athletic, passionate, and full of vibrance?
Within Helix, we see an array of patient ages, usually starting in the mid-30’s. Hormone fluctuations and low testosterone are nothing to be embarrassed of – everyone, at some point, will have them. From my perspective though, I do seriously believe that most of my relatives – the ones who were classified as diabetic, heart disease-riden, depressed or obese – would have seen their problems solved with proper hormone and testosterone balance. I also believe that they would have lived lives of better athleticism and vibrance, well past their 30’s.
When subscribing to a hormone institution, it is critical that consistent monitoring take place of your testosterone, estrogen, progesterone (women, particularly), adrenals and thyroid. Making sure all five of these areas are in proper balance is critical. And with proper hormone balance, you will give yourself an excellent chance at living a more vibrant life (provided that you eat the right foods, exercise and get your proper sleep).
At the very least, the above is an example of the patient experience we hope every subscriber at Helix experiences.
