What Every Man Should Know About Andropause !
If you have experienced .
you may be experiencing Hormone Imbalance in your Body!
The above symptoms have been identified due to Hormone Imbalance in the Body. Many men have reversed the above symptoms and found relief by using Herbal Dietary Supplements like Royale and Soyam; and have made Dietary changes in their daily food intake to include Soy Beans, Tofu, Sesame Seeds and other sources of Natural Calcium. This has helped to re-establish the Natural Hormone Balance in their bodies in a very Natural manner.
What is Andropause?
Andropause is a Hormone Imbalance due to the lack or absence of Testosterone which is the Male Hormone. Historically, by the age of 55 the amounts of Testosterone secreted by the Testis is significantly lower than it was at the age of 40 years. By the age of 80 most of the Male Hormone levels decrease to pre-puberty levels.
There exists a relationship between the Testis, Testosterone, the Brain and the Pituitary Glands in the Male Body.
Andropause is a simple Endocrine Imbalance that can be easily corrected today. All Male Hormones gradually decline with passing years. Testosterone (from the Testis); Human Growth Hormone (from the Pituitary); and DHEA and Androstenedione (from the Adrenal Glands) all begin to drop steadily.
During the last couple of decades this steady drop in Hormone production has been accelerated due to Estrogens in our environment (herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, Hormones used to produce fatter animals, larger eggs, more milk, etc.). The overall effect is less bio-available Testosterone in the Body by the age of 40 instead of the historic age of 55 years.
Rectification of this by Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) has its own risk factors. The biggest being that whenever any Hormone is administered, the Endocrine Glands which normally produces it; and which have their own intelligence and regulating mechanism; ceases to function and atrophy with each passing month of external Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). The downside being that, once you start HRT in any form - synthetic or natural, you will have to commit yourself to life long therapy; like a Diabetic Patient on increasing levels of Insulin with each passing year.
A safer approach to
rectify this, will be to concentrate on those factors which can:
What is Hormone Imbalance ?
Hormone Imbalance is a man made Imbalance of the 20th Century. The industrial world we live in today, the Petrochemically Polluted Environment and the diet all contribute to the exposure of the human body to high levels of Synthetic Estrogen which is the main cause of Hormone Imbalance. Today most men experience these symptoms at an early age of 40 years.
The Petrochemical Products we are constantly exposed to, cause high levels of Estrogen in the body, which cause a malfunction of the Endocrine System of the Body and create a Hormone Imbalance situation.
In order to understand how Hormone Imbalance begins, it is useful to look at the natural aging process of the human body. The levels of the male sex hormone Testosterone decrease with advancing age, and the ratio of Testosterone to Estrogen falls. Further due to exposure to the environment and diet the Estrogen levels rise still further and lower this ratio further.
Enlarged Prostate which affects approximately 50% of the male population above the age of 50 and over 75% of the male population above the age of 70 is due to Hormone Imbalance in the body. Traditionally this was due to the aging of the body but has become more pronounced in the last couple of decades due to the Petrochemically Polluted Environment we live in and the Hormone rich diet we eat.
How do Men Become Estrogen Dominant ?
Our Environment and
Our diet is also contaminated with Hormones. Synthetic Estrogens are now used to fatten cattle, as well as other meat-producing animals, and to increase milk and egg production. Most of us are ingesting Hormones in many of our meals.
Use of Synthetic Estrogens:
Therefore, these synthetics can have an unnatural and far more potent hormonal effect on our body systems than Natural Hormones.
Enlarged Prostate, Urinary Problems, Low Sex Drive, Impotence, Diabetes, Allergies, Depression, Fatigue, Foggy thinking, increased risk of stroke, infertility, rapid increase in weight and Osteoporosis to name a few.
If the body has a proper balance of Testosterone to Estrogen, many of these symptoms can be alleviated.
Testosterone is one of the primary Male Sex Hormones produced in a man's body. A healthy male has approximately 1000 to 1200 nanograms/dl of Testosterone at the age of 20. After the age of 35 there is a steady decline in these levels. By the age to 40 to 50 one sees a significant drop in these levels. By the age of 80 these levels decline to prepuberty levels of 100 to 200 nanograms/dl.
Natural Testosterone can be produced in the Body by intake of a Herbal Dietary Supplement called Royale and eating Soy rich foods. Soy contains Diosgenin, which when digested, is converted by the Body into Natural Testosterone - fully compatible with the human body and with no side effects !
Since the Body has its own intelligence and knows how much Testosterone is required by it, there is no chance of excessive Testosterone being produced and causing any side effects in the Body. The use of Synthetic or Natural Testosterone treatment is plagued by the problems of deciding the correct dose for each person. Herbal Dietary Supplements like Royale and foods like Soy do not have these problems as the Body itself regulates the digestion and absorption of these foods and takes from them exactly what ever it needs and the rest gets eliminated from the Body as waste matter in due course.
Natural Testosterone generated inside the Body can help to decrease the symptoms and discomfort associated with Estrogen Dominance (and / or Testosterone Deficiency). Natural Testosterone produced in our Body is better, safer, and does not have the side effects associated with Synthetic Hormones or Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). Yet, because natural substances cannot be patented, pharmaceutical companies choose to market the Synthetic Hormones and Hormone Replacement Therapies and Programs.
Natural Testosterone Restores Balance of Body & Mind
Biochemically, Natural Testosterone provides the raw materials inside the Body from which all other Steroid Hormones are made. It is the precursor for DHEA, cortisone, estrogen and salt-regulating aldosterone, etc. (as illustrated below). Natural Testosterone, therefore, has a balancing effect on the entire body. As a precursor, it gives the metabolism the flexibility it needs to create harmony in the dynamic, fluctuating system of the body. Our metabolism can synthesize from Natural Testosterone the other steroids it needs on a minute to minute basis. On the other hand, Synthetic Testosterone cannot act with the flexibility of a precursor and this is one reason they produce side effects. Furthermore, because Natural Testosterone can convert into other Hormones, it is often all that many men will need.
Natural Testosterone increases the communication between the Endocrine Organs. It gives men that sense of well being and control. It allows a man the ability to age slowly and naturally and make comfortable transitions from Puberty through Andropause and beyond.
Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH) is a result of Hormone Imbalance. The incidence of BPH is dependant on the action of Male Hormones (Androgens) within the Prostate Gland. These changes within the Prostate Gland reflect the many significant changes in both male (androgen), female (estrogen) and pituitary hormone levels in men.
Levels of the main male sex hormone Testosterone decrease with advancing age, but Estrogen, Prolactin, LH and FSH levels are all increased. The exposure to Synthetic Estrogen in the environment and diet help to accelerate these levels further. This explains the growing incidence of Prostate Enlargement and Cancer in the last 25 years.
The ultimate effect of these changes is that there is an increased concentration of Testosterone within the Prostate Gland and an increased conversion of this Testosterone to an even more potent form known as Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The increase in levels of Testosterone and DHT is largely due to a decreased rate of removal combined with an increase in the activity of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase, which converts Testosterone to DHT. Elevated levels of Estrogen inhibits the elimination of DHT from the Prostate Gland in cases of BPH.
If untreated, BPH eventually obstructs the bladder outlet, resulting in Urine Retention and eventual Kidney Damage or Failure.
As men age, Progesterone levels fall, Testosterone becomes converted to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and Estrogen levels rise and become dominant. The effect of this is weight gain, some breast enlargement, an enlarged Prostate Gland and sometimes Prostate Cancer. Testosterone actually protects against Prostate Cancer, whereas DHT does not protect against the carcinogenic effects of increased Estrogen. The conversion of Testosterone to DHT is promoted by the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase. The action of this enzyme is inhibited by Progesterone. Progesterone is also a precursor to Testosterone synthesis in the human body and also inhibits its conversion to DHT. This is important since Testosterone antagonizes and limits Estrogen effects, thus preventing Prostate Cancer.
ProstateCare is a Herbal Dietary Supplement which is known to decongest Enlarged Prostate.
Saw Palmeto is known to help shrink enlarged Prostate by preventing the formation of DHT in the body by blocking the action of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase.
Coriander & Cumin are known to help reduce burning sensation while passing urine.
WaterX helps to increase the flow of urine.
Kidney Bladder Flush helps to fight Prostate inflammation.
Soyam is another Herbal Dietary Supplement rich in Phytosterols. It is a precursor to Progesterone which in turn is a precursor to Testosterone which can help prevent Cancer of the Prostate and also inhibit the action of Synthetic Hormones entering the Human Body.
If you have Hypoglycemia or Low Blood Sugar
Sugar is the fuel on which our entire body runs. The use of refined and concentrated Sugar causes the Pancreas to overreact by producing too much insulin, which in turn burns up the sugar causing low levels of blood sugar known as Hypoglycemia.
The burnt up Sugar releases energy for the body to use. Any excess energy that the body does not require is stored as glycogen in the Liver and Muscles as a fuel reserve or converted to fat. This can result in weight gain.
The Adrenal Glands secrete a Hormone which begins the process to change glycogen back to sugar. The body replaces the depleted glycogen reserve by converting fat into glycogen as a ready reserve.
The most common cause of Hypoglycemia is poorly functioning Adrenal Glands. Sluggish Adrenal Glands cause slower conversion of glycogen to sugar in time of need.
Adrenal Glands tend to get sluggish due to the accumulation of Toxins in the body, which accelerate the slowing down of the body and cause its rapid aging.
When the amount of insulin necessary to convert a given amount of sugar has been secreted, it is the job of the Adrenal Hormone to send a message to the Pancreas to stop producing insulin. A sluggish Adrenal Gland will be late in this function, thus allowing an overproduction of insulin with a resultant "Excessive low blood sugar levels" or Hypoglycemia. The function of the Adrenal Glands is monitored by the Pituitary Glands.
Hypoglycemia in infants and children is also due to poorly functioning Adrenal Glands.
Royale is a Herbal Dietary Supplement which serves as a Tonic for the entire Endocrine System. It stimulates the Pituitary, Hypothalamus, Adrenal, Thyroid, Testis/Ovaries, Pancreas to tune them up to a healthy functioning so that they efficiently begin releasing normal quantities of Hormones in a timely manner. A proper Detoxification of the Body to remove Toxins of the body should also be taken up to eliminate Toxic Imbalance of the Body. This should be followed by Rejuvenation to give the body a fine tune up.
Testosterone plays and important role in preventing and treating Diabetes Mellitus or High Blood Sugar which occurs when the cells are not able to take in sugar or metabolize it properly. Testosterone helps the Insulin receptors inside the cells to function more efficiently thereby reducing the incidence of high blood sugar which increases with old age.
An improper functioning of the Endocrine Glands can also cause the Pancreas to produce less insulin which can also manifest as High Blood Sugar levels.
Royale being a Tonic for the Entire Endocrine system can help a deficient Pancreas to produce more Insulin when required and also help the Testis to produce more Testosterone if required. Royale can therefore be of help for all types of Diabetes.
SugarLess, Fenugreek and Turmeric are other Herbal Dietary Supplements which are known to regulate Blood Sugar.
Low Sex Drive & Impotence
Impotence or Erectile Dysfunction is the inability to have or sustain an erection long enough to have a meaningful sexual intercourse (Download article on Erecticle Dysfunction by Pramod Vora - Acrobat Format .
Approximately 50% of normal healthy males experience some degree of impotence by the age of 40.
Impotence can be a vascular disorder caused due to loss of elasticity in the arteries - a condition which causes poor circulation and impaired blood flow. Another cause could be the deposition of plaque in the blood vessels leading to the penis, in which case the blood supply to the penis is insufficient to create or sustain an erection, resulting in impotence.
Healthy circulation and blood flow are necessary to maintain an erection. Erectile dysfunction tends to occur gradually until the night time or early morning erections cease altogether or are so flaccid that successful intercourse does not occur.
Chronic alcoholism can damage the nerves inside the penis also resulting in impotence.
Smoking damages the tiny blood vessels in the penis that must enlarge to accept the substantial onrush of blood required to attain and maintain an erection.
Blood Flow is a Herbal Massage Oil which can be applied to the Pubic region, Penis and Perineum. It is known to help dissolve plaque, improve Blood Circulation and regenerate damaged nerves.
Ginkgo is a Herbal Dietary Supplement, which when used for a prolonged period of time, normally 3 to 6 months, is known to help improve Blood Circulation and Erection.
Hormone Imbalance or a disorder of the Endocrine Glands can cause levels of Testosterone to decline to extremely low levels also causing Impotence and Loss of Sex Drive or Libido.
Royale is a Herbal Dietary Supplement, which serve as a Tonic for the entire Endocrine System and is capable of raising Testosterone levels in the body.
This Booklet is intended to offer general instructions for the use of Natural Herbal Dietary Supplements and Herbal Oils. It is important to understand that every man is different, and his hormone levels are unique. We offer these suggestions as a starting point for experimentation to discover what works best for you. Nothing stated here is intended as a treatment for any disease or illness, and should not take the place of consulting a nutritionally conscious, informed physician.
Many men using these
guidelines discover that they experience almost immediate results. Others
report results after one, two or three weeks, and some men do not see
significant results until they have gone through three of four months
of continued use. Most men, who use these Herbal Dietary Supplements regularly
and consistently for a sufficient length of time, experience the relief
Testosterone Stimulates Bone Building
Testosterone is an anabolic Hormone which helps to build muscles, bones and connective tissues. Testosterone therefore helps in preventing and treating Osteoporosis. Testosterone is used to build muscle mass by professional weight lifters and athletes. A deficiency in Testosterone brings about a weakness in muscles and bones.
Royale which is a Tonic for the entire Endocrine System can therefore be used to successfully reverse Osteoporosis when combined with exercise (walking 30 minutes daily) and sources of Natural Calcium like Carrot juice, Orange juice or Sesame seeds.
Eat lots of Soy Beans in your daily diet to improve the Hormone Balance of your Body and to reduce the risk of Prostate Cancer & Osteoporosis. Soy Beans are a rich source of Calcium and can be had in the form of Flour, Granules, Nuggets or plain roasted or salted Beans. Boil fresh Soy Bean Pods in salted water and eat as a snack.
Dried Soy Beans lentils can be soaked overnight in water and/or germinated to be eaten as a salad or cooked as a vegetable. Soy Beans can be ground to flour and added in 20% quantity to Wheat flour to make conventional Bread, Syrian Bread or Asian Indian Breads (Chappatis / Rotis / Nans / Parathas / Puris). Eat tofu, Soy Sauce and Miso regularly. High fiber diet can decrease total circulating Estrogens in the Body.
Soy contains Diosgenin which is a precursor to Progesterone / Testosterone which helps to redeposit Calcium back on the Bones. Soy also contains Phytosterols which relieve Enlarged Prostate.
Walk 30 minutes daily. High Estrogen Levels are modulated by cruciferous vegetables, such as kale, collard greens, mustard greens, broccoli, cabbage and turnips. Eat one serving daily. A good source of Natural Calcium which is easily assimilated in the body is Sesame seeds. The Black variety has a higher therapeutic value and lower Oil content. You may soak overnight and eat. Chew to a fine paste. Include Sesame Seeds with your daily meals. They are a rich source of Calcium, Proteins, Magnesium and Iron. Eat Tahini (white Sesame Seed Paste) / white Sesame Seed + Dried Roasted Coconut Chutney with every meal. Fresh Coconut water and Carrot / Orange Juice are also rich sources of Calcium. Almonds are another rich source of Calcium. They contain trace mineral Boron which is essential for proper assimilation of Calcium in the body. Soak 5 - 10 Almonds overnight, skin and eat every morning.
Eat only unrefined crystalline Sea Salt which is a rich source of Natural Iodine. Peas are also rich in Iodine.
Drink 2 cups of Beet Root, Carrot and Wheat Grass juice each day.
If you have an Enlarged Prostate, eat a quarter cup of Raw Pumpkin Seeds or Sunflower Seeds each day. Consume 2 to 4 oz. (50 to 100 gms.) of Soy Foods regularly to decrease the risk of Prostate Cancer. In case of Urinary Incontinence take one to two tablespoons of Sesame Seeds with Jaggery each day. Walk minimum 30 minutes daily. Avoid intake of Alcohol (especially Beer), Caffeine and Sugar.
Tell Tail Signs for Wives to look out for
If these and many more Symptoms go un-noticed, it can cause tensions in the marriage and home and may result in the relationship or marriage falling apart. So don't take Hormonal Imbalance in your Man's Body lightly. It is a serious matter which can be easily and safely corrected within a few weeks of making simple Dietary changes and by intake of necessary Herbal Dietary Supplements for a short duration.
Many men become incapable of normal functioning, both physically and emotionally, because of a Hormonal Imbalance in their body. Correcting this speedily is important. Besides the obvious health benefits, many have saved their marriages, their families, their careers and their sanity by taking corrective Herbal Dietary Supplements.
As a first step, Detoxify the Body, so that the Organs which have slowed down as a result of the Toxins accumulating in the Body, will speed up with the removal of Toxins from the Body.
There are 5 Herbal Dietary Supplements (Colon Cleanse, Kidney Care, Detoxifier, LungClear and LivMax) that are involved in the Detoxification of the Body. These detoxify the intestines, the Kidneys, the Blood, the Lungs and the Liver respectively.
The second step is to Rejuvenate the Body and "fine tune" the Body (just like an automobile at its 25,000 mile Tune Up); further speed up the Organs so that the Hormone generation in the Body is stepped up. Herbs to be used during Rejuvenation are Energizer, Kaya Kalpa, Kama Sutra, Shilajit and Gooseberry.
The Royale and Soyam will help in the natural synthesization of Testosterone in the Body and maintain an automatic natural balance between the Testosterone and Estrogen levels so that you do not become Estrogen Dominant. These Herbal Dietary Supplements can be taken simultaneously with the beginning of the Detoxification of the Body and can be continued right through the Rejuvenation of the Body till the symptoms of Hormone Imbalance are reversed.
In conclusion it is right to say that Detoxifying and Rejuvenating the Body is the first step to Reversing the Hormone Imbalance.
A Detoxification and Rejuvenation Program, once thoroughly done, is known to recreate in some cases, a Natural Hormone Balance within the Body even where the Testis have been damaged or infected by Viral infections such as Mumps. This has been reported in many cases where the Adrenal Glands have stepped in with increased Hormone production.

The Urgent Need of Today
Today millions of men young and old suffer from disorders related to Hormone Imbalance due to the high levels of Estrogen in our Diet and the environment.
Estrogen enters our
This has affected approximately 50% men above the age of 40 years and 80% above the age of 70 years.
There is an urgent need for the authorities like the "Health Ministry", " Food & Agricultural Ministry" and the "Environmental Protection Agency" (EPA) to wake up to this Stealth Epidemic that is undermining the health of the people.
Our Center is engaged in decimating information of this subject. We also offer Free Counseling on changes required to be made in Dietary patterns to face the onslaught of Synthetic Estrogen in our lives. Synthetic Estrogen is not biodegradable and the soil and seeds will stay contaminated for decades to come unless a massive "Clean-up Operation" is immediately undertaken on a priority basis.

Positive Weight Release Appendix "A"
The Traditional Approach
Traditionally, Weight Control has been to view weight increase as a Symptom and mankind has spent billions of Dollars and hours in its fruitless control by "Passive" means. This paper is presented to put forth a new School of Thought on an emerging concept called Positive Weight Release which is an "Active" type of Weight Release Program.
This paper explains the reasons for a change in the traditional approach from a totally "Passive Symptomatic Treatment" to an Active Program known as "Overhauling the Body."
When the Body starts to accumulate weight, it means that the various Organs of the Body have slowed down and the rate of metabolism of the Body has therefore also slowed down.
A more appropriate and a Positive Approach to Weight Release would be, as a first step, to Detoxify the Body, so that the Organs which have slowed down as a result of the Toxins accumulating in the Body, will speed up with the removal of Toxins from the Body.
The second step is, to Rejuvenate the Body and "fine tune" the Body (just like an automobile at its 25,000 mile Tune Up); further speed up the Organs so that the Rate of Metabolism is increased and the food being assimilated by the body is burnt much faster; and the Body does not continue to accumulate weight like before.
There are 4 Herbal Dietary Supplements (Colon Cleanse, Kidney Care, Detoxifier and LivMax) that are involved in the Detoxification of the Body. These detoxify the intestines, the Kidneys, the Blood and the Liver respectively. There is an optional herb LungClear which can be used by people living in highly polluted environments and/or who were smokers at any time in the past. LungClear will help to clear and Detoxify the lungs.
There are 3 Herbal Dietary Supplements (Energizer, Kaya Kalpa and Kama Sutra) that are involved in the Rejuvenation of the Body. Each capsule contains a number of Herbs which are targeted to different Organs of the Body, including the Brain - which is the "Super Computer" and "Master Server" which controls the whole Body. All these Rejuvenating Herbs are capable of increasing the Rate of Metabolism of the Body back (Reverse Aging) to when the body was much younger. For people who occasionally or habitually drink alcohol, or have very serious Chronic ailments, it is advisable to use Gooseberry to carry out a second level of Detoxification and Rejuvenation of the Liver.
This way, the Weight Gain Challenge of the Body may be overcome in a more positive way, as we are going right to the root cause of Weight Increase rather than working in isolation on the Symptom of Weight Increase.
The 4th Dietary Supplement in our Rejuvenation Program is known as Shilajit which is a Natural Mineral supplement in its original natural form (not a extract or freeze dried low potency form); which provides a number of natural trace minerals in their natural form to help speed up the working of the Organs. These minerals are found high up in the Himalayas.
Detoxifying and Rejuvenating the Body is a first step to Positive Weight Release.
