The effects of our endocrine system and subsequent hormones on optimal health is vitally important. Testosterone has been precipitously dropping in males over the last 30+ years. As a result, there is growing interest in natural hormone optimization. But for many, there are more questions than answers.

  • How do you improve total and free testosterone without pharmaceuticals?
  • Are there specific foods to eat or avoid?
  • What types of exercises are best?
  • How do sleep and stress affect total and free testosterone?
  • Herbs and supplements … do they work?

Get the answers to these pivotal questions and more in this science-backed training that will help you to improve hormonal profiles for men.
