HPTA Manipulation

Here’s a good article for the amateur endocrinologists in the group:



I read it, but to me it sounds like application of the protocol might be complicated. Playing with opiates is sort of scary to me; but that’s because I’m a wimp. However, if application is only something like twice a week, this might be interesting.

Others with much better biology and chemistry than me would have some good opinions here, especially concerning the theory of how the hypothalamus gets the “androgen” dock signal.


I posted the same article in the steroid section several days ago but nobody seemed to respond…

I’d be very interested in what this article talks about so if anyone wants to chime in with any opinions/info/experience, please do so.
