He said that aspartame and all artificial sweeteners are poison, basically. And something about drinking more than 1 liter of diet drinks a day affects prolactin levels, which decrease test. I do not understand much about hormones yet but somehow they can make you fat and affect your health negatively. He told me to only drink water. He does so himself.
The Doctor was an interesting fellow. He is an old man (I’d say 70ish), but agile and spry - does a lot of bicycling. That is what he is into. He is kinda short and told me he used to weigh 220. Now he weighs 165 or so. He has an MD, PhD and is a noted surgeon. He usually just treats other physicians. I had written him a long letter explaining my fatigue and faxed him 12 pages of recent blood tests I had other doctros do. He called me right away and had me in his office. Gave me a 200mg injection of test right away and hande me a 10ml vial and all the pins and stuff.
He told me stories of being interested in longevity and hormones, so he went to China and Switzerland to anti-aging clinics for a few weeks or a month at a time. He said he saw old men 100 yrs old playing tennis and riding bicycles -long-distance. He was amazed at what he saw. I do not remember all the details but he does test himself and HGH. I think he is into DHEA too. He told me to exercise as much as possible - cardio and weights, give up fast foods and deserts (all refined sugar), anything low-fat, all fried foods, caffeine, cigarettes, alcohol, etc…
He walked out with me as it was the end of the day and he had an apple in his hand and a bottle of water. Very cool guy. When I go back in April he will give me HCG for 2 weeks and take all the blood tests I did not have done and the other applicable ones and maybe adjust the T to get my level to 900-1200 (rather than the 322 it was) and check the IGF-1 and see if I might need some HGH and/or other hormones (probaby DHEA).
Here is one thing on his pamphlets that is interesting:
"Interestingly, a sea gull ages all at once - the last few weeks of its life. A thirty-year-old gull can fly as high, attack a school of fish and bear or father baby chicks as well as a one-year-old gull. Its pituitary hormone levels don’t fall until just before its death.
In humans, the aging process starts early and by age 40, our pituitary hormones have drastically fallen over 50%. Notably, growth hormone (GH) and DHEA levels decline each year of life."
He is into preventative care rather than managed care and thinks you should live a high quality vital life up until you die - quality years. And this can be achieved with hormones and clean living and eating. He was big into fruit, vegetables, healthy fats, and even lost of lean meats and fish.
Wow, i wish to meet a doctor like him when i’m in my 50’s! Thanks
