Are you one of the many people in Tamarac who are burning the candle at both ends and maybe only getting 4 or 5 hours of sleep a night? Are you also one of those guys having problems with his sex drive and feeling out of sorts? Well, recent studies done in Tamarac in the last 3 years show that these symptoms could all be due to the effect of sleep on testosterone – just how, though, may be a chicken and egg question!
While it’s true that lower testosterone levels can be the cause of a sluggish sex drive and irritability it seems to be a matter of research opinion whether low sleep levels cause low testosterone or low testosterone causes lack of sleep.
Is it Low T? How to Get Your Husband's T Level Checked!
All women will experience the effects of menopause at some point in their lives, usually somewhere between the ages of 30 to 65. These effects are caused by hormone imbalances as the body tries to adjust to its new "normal self". There are different remedies available to relieve the symptoms that occur. Natural hormone replacement therapy is one that has helped many women.
I'm sure you've heard it before. Friends and family members have stories of how they have been tormented with hot flashes, mood swings, energy loss, weight gain and other terrible symptoms.
Many of these people went through numerous tests to determine what's wrong. Some found relief while others went on in their uncomfortable state. Unfortunately, these types of stories are common. You may be one of these people that are still suffering and hoping to find an end to this cycle of reoccurring symptoms.
When you reach this stage of your life, your body's hormone balance changes. Specifically, a depletion of the hormones estrogen, progesterone and testosterone occurs. The amount of hormonal change will be different for every woman. The traditional method of treatment is known as Hormonal Replacement Therapy. This is referred to as HRT. Chances are someone you know has taken this approach to help menopausal symptoms.
Many women will search for safe treatments. Studies have shown that using synthetic hormones as a treatment increases the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease. HRT should be prescribed by your doctor after a thorough risk evaluation and potential benefits review have been completed. The prescription should be specific to you to ensure effectiveness and safety.
Natural hormone replacement therapy should be a strong consideration to reduce or eliminate the effects of menopause. Many women feel more comfortable taking a natural remedy rather than using drugs.
The goal of natural hormone replacement therapy is simple. Its purpose is to bring your hormonal balance back to the state prior to beginning menopausal. Once this is achieved, you will start to gain relief from the symptoms of menopause.
There are a number of safe, natural, effective treatments you can use. It is worth your time to go this route. I believe if more women knew of these solutions, all would try them first before going the HRT path.

The good news for men that suffer from low testosterone levels is that there are treatment methods available to help them get their levels back up to normal as well as get rid of the symptoms that are associated with this condition. Testosterone replacement therapy is one of the first methods of treatment that doctors choose for their patients. This type of treatment is created for the purpose of introducing more testosterone into the body, which will raise the levels. Men can receive this replacement therapy through injections, having pellets implanted underneath the skin, by applying a topical gel or taking a pill.
While these methods have both advantages and disadvantages, there is a newer product on the market that is quickly becoming popular. Similar to gel, testosterone cream is an effective form of treatment for raising testosterone levels in a way that is convenient and easy to use. Many men favor testosterone cream over the patch or gel because there is less chance of skin irritation. In order to use this product, all you have to do is apply a generous amount to your stomach, upper arms, thighs and shoulders once a day for up to eight weeks in order to maintain normal levels of testosterone.
It is important to note that there are side effects that come with using the cream that include problems with indigestion, headache or dizziness and high blood pressure in relation to fluid retention. Because this product can cause prostate problems, men that are currently suffering from issues with their prostate will not be able to use this cream.

Are You Curious About Testosterone Therapy?
The subject of testosterone therapy has caught my attention lately. I had begun to study about it when about three or four months ago my wife brought me a bottle of testosterone capsules for a 90-day trial. She wanted to see if it would help me in my battle with afternoon fatigue and general lethargy.
I thought why not, it can't hurt. I wasn't desperate or anything, I was mostly curious about "Low-T" and wanted to experience for myself all these health claims that are flying around the media lately. For example, these TV commercials about the cure for erectile dysfunction were getting on my nerves. I am particularly dismayed by the couple in two separate bathtubs. What's up with that? (Sorry no pun intended).
Then a few days ago I got a call from a telemarketer, asking how my testosterone trial was going. I told him it was working great for keeping elephants out of my flower beds. As long as I was taking the capsules, no elephants had trampled my flowers. He was not impressed by my humor, and just wanted to get me to order more. Nope, I told him. I really couldn't tell any difference on or off the capsules. When he told me I needed more time for my body to adjust to the product, I ended the conversation. I know more about Low T after my extensive research than he seemed to know
On the other hand, someone is buying this stuff. In an article by Rachael Rettner, (published on line on MyHealthNewsDaily June 3, 2013, Copyright © 2013 TechMediaNetwork.com). Ms. Rettner says, "The percentage of middle-aged men in the United States taking testosterone to treat symptoms of low testosterone, or "low T," has increased substantially in recent years, a new study suggests."
For the last ten years, prescriptions for testosterone supplements among men over age 40 has been gradually increasing until today more than 3% of men in that age bracket have received some form of testosterone therapy. That is almost three times more than in 2001.
But does the stuff work? The answer is that study results have been less than supportive that it does. In fact, I found many so-called scientific studies that made all sorts of weird claims, but none were truly conclusive. It is like my-elephant-in-the-flowerbed comment. The obvious sarcasm is that if I did nothing, the elephants wouldn't bother me because I don't have any elephants wandering around my suburb. Scientific research cannot prove a hypothesis by the absence of symptoms.
Ms Rettner presented her most shocking comment when she quoted an editorial by Dr. Lisa Schwartz and Dr. Steven Woloshin, of the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice: "the low T campaign [is] "a mass, uncontrolled experiment that invites men to expose themselves to the harms of a treatment unlikely to fix problems that may be wholly unrelated to testosterone levels."
"Before anyone makes millions of men aware of low T, they should be required to do a large-scale randomized trial to demonstrate that testosterone therapy for healthy aging men does more good than harm," they wrote.

Tamarac is a city in Broward County, Florida, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the city had a population of 60,427. It is part of the Miami metropolitan area, which was home to an estimated 6,012,331 people in 2015.
In the early 1960s a young developer named Ken Behring came from the Midwest and bought land where he could, creating an active adult community of two-bedroom maintenance-free homes. He called his new city Tamarac, named after the nearby Tamarac Country Club in Oakland Park.
In 1963, Behring built the city's first development east of State Road 7, Tamarac Lakes Section One and Section Two. Next came two neighborhoods of homes built on a former orange grove called Tamarac Lakes North and The Boulevards. Four of Behring's last developments were Tamarac Lakes South, then the Mainlands of Tamarac Lakes just west of State Road 7, and finally the Woodlands community.
