When I first realized the nature of my situation, and set out to increase my testosterone levels I wanted to do so naturally. And by naturally, I mean that I did not want to use a testosterone patch or gel to boost my levels. I wanted to promote testosterone production in my body by using as few prescriptions as possible. For me, and this goes back to my problems with anti-depressants, I try to limit the number of drugs that I put in my body because I have found that they are almost always come with severe side effects.
For instance, to this day, I still take some anti-depressants, and hence have low testosterone levels. The reason that I take the anti-depressants still is that I have had a very difficult time withdrawing from them. The particular medication that my doctor put me on, has a very profound discontinuation syndrome. The average person has a hard time weening off this medication once they are put on it. I have had a devil of a time and, therefore, have been unable to completing taper off it. I am in the process of a long (year long) taper to finally, get off these medications. When I do my testosterone might return to normal, but for now I need to take supplements to stimulate testosterone in my body to allow me to function properly. It is also possible that I have naturally low testosterone levels. It has been impossible to determine this since I have been unable to completely get off of the meds.
Anyway, I had to therefore set out to increase testosterone naturally. I was able to do this with the help of a doctor who put me on a prescribed regimen of supplements which have boosted my testosterone. Of course, they have also boosted my effectiveness. I have lost weight and gained muscle mass. In fact, I am in some of the best shape of my life now that I realize how important exercise can be to increasing the body’s testosterone levels. Additionally, my sexual functioning is vastly improved and, most importantly, my energy and focus have returned.
Obviously, I have experienced a lot of benefits since I set out to increase my testosterone. So much in fact that I started this site Increase Testosterone Levels to share what I have learned and what has worked for me. I have already detailed foods that increase testosterone so I’d next like to point out what dietary supplements I have been taking and how they have helped to increase my testosterone without drugs or medications.
Now for the disclaimer. I am not a doctor or health care provider. I do not give medical advice. What I can do is share with you what I do to boost testosterone levels. I simply tell you what I am taking and the results that I have experienced. If you choose to follow in my footsteps please know I take no liability for any adverse effects that you may experience.
Okay. Well what do I do? I take a number of dietary supplements that cause increased testosterone production in the body. Here are the supplements that I take, which you can purchase at Amazon.com. I buy mine at Amazon from companies that were recommended to me for their quality by my doctor. I get them quickly and the price is reasonable, but you can buy yours anywhere.
Here’s what I take:
ZMA – Before bed
Lecithen – In the morning
DHEA – After breakfast and again after lunch
DMEA – Once a day
Using this regimen I have been able to increase my testosterone without having to resort to prescription hormones. So, naturally, I am quite pleased. If you have any questions about anything, please use the comments below.
