So here is my diary of what happened so far after 1 x 100mg test E injection.
After 1 hour, felt horny and calmer. After 3 hours felt mild heart palpitations, cured with Zeolite. Maybe some minor toxic substance in the oil. Slightly greasy skin.
Super horny, best sex of my life. Mood totally stable. Feel relaxed with the world for the first time. Amazing feeling. Digestion best it’s ever been. Was getting some of my metal symptoms back, which were resolved by Zeolote. I think there is some relationship between SHBG and toxicity and the gut.
Weaker but still noticeable increase in libdo/erections. Mood still fantastic, morning wood. Libido not as strong.
Other notes: Noticed some chelation type side effect, possible toxin release or depletion of essential metals. Have read that testosterone is a mercury antagoniser, and oestrogen is a mercury protector.
Possible theory: The body is trying to reduce the amount of available test to protect against mercury symptoms by increasing SHBG, and will always try and do that while there is mercury in the body. Only large amounts of sex hormones will reduce SHBG for a short time until more is made. Or until mercury is cleared. I was also looking back over my doctors notes from last year
“our testosterone is above normal limit, optimal level is more than 600 ng/mLToo high it doesn’t means good because your hematocrit and red blood cells. Normally high testosterone increase red blood cells production. Possible cause is androgen hormones receptor resistance from heavy metals or low free (active form) testosterone from zinc deficiency”
I have read TRT takes 2-3 week to become effective, but obviously my ‘curve’ is different (working almost instantly then becoming less noticeable in just a few days). I believe this is because the SHBG is binding to the large amounts of injected test, freeing up what’s already there.
It’s just acting a SHBG absorber, then after a few days the body is producing more SHBG to try and balance that out. For what ever reason my body is deciding it needs more SHBG. Could be genetic, could be toxin related. Maybe it has another unclear role. More study is needed.
Maybe as something to consider, the reason your capsule version isn’t working for you is it’s a ‘slow release’ and meant for people with low test, and not high SHBG.
Remember we are addressing two totally separate things here.
Everyone here and my TRT doc does seem to say things like ‘you need to overcome SHBG with large infrequent doses’. Not small regular, or even slow release.
So I’m happy that you are being a maverick, and trying out other solutions. Don’t give up if that’s what you believe. You may just stumble on a better solution, but just remember you still have an option to try if and when you want to consider injections.
I’m going to try another round of Alpha Lipoic Acid chelation, I didn’t document my attempt last time but from hazy memory, I do remember having similar feelings to TRT (mood and libido wise). Maybe that was unblocking my androgen receptors or something. I’ll make some notes about how that goes in a few days.
If you are interested about chelating your mercury check this group (many people talking about recovering test levels after 1-2 years of chelation): https://www.facebook.com/groups/acfanatics/
Just removing your fillings isn’t enough, and it’s a long long process to full detox. If you have had fillings and not detoxed, you will have mercury issues in some form. Everyone born today has 1000x more metals in them than 300 years ago, so it’s got to be an issue with the declining health spans people are suffering.
I have been trying it the natural way, with chlorella and cilantro (for 19 months) which has helped so much, but it wasn’t as powerful as the test round of ALA I did before. I only gave up because after 3 days it was way too strong, but maybe will try just reducing the dose and working up.
You can also do a 23andme genetic test for $99, which will possibly uncover some weakened pathways. Methylation seems to come up a lot.
I will also consider testing proviron if none of the above work and have been on Boron as well at 10mg a day for a few month (with nettle, and aventa sativa).
