Lost your Game?
by Mila McManus MD
Wellness and hormones aren’t just for women. Men develop hormonal imbalance and deficiencies as well. Have you developed ‘Grumpy Ole Man Syndrome’? Are you too pooped to play with your kids? Have you lost your game? Have you lost your drive? Have you developed a beer belly? Might be time to optimize your testosterone and/or adrenal function.
Have you had your testosterone level checked and it’s always in normal range? Besides the fact that the normal reference range for testosterone is quite large, there are many factors that can affect how your body is utilizing testosterone. If you are overweight or are eating a particular diet, you may have excess estrogen in the body, which then blocks testosterone function. If you have adrenal fatigue (test yourself here), your body may be shunting hormone production to make more cortisol instead of making adequate testosterone. If you are deficient in certain nutrients, e.g. zinc, your testosterone may be metabolizing into estrogen at an excessive rate, causing a downward spiral in testosterone function. (test yourself for low testosterone symptoms here).
Call 281-298-6742 and give yourself the best Father’s Day gift there is-the gift of good health! We can help you address your adrenal fatigue and even have an online adrenal fatigue test.

“Below are a few comments about my experience:
After the first week I started feeling much better and started having more energy
At the end of the second week I ran The Woodlands Half Marathon and turned in a personal record beating my old time by one minute per mile for thirteen miles.
In the thirty days I dropped ten pounds and lost over a couple of inches in my waist.
My taste buds changed, that was crazy. I do not crave the sugar and breads as I used to.
My memory, the fog I had has cleared up and it is awesome!
Last but not least, as I got older my patience seems short and my moods change suddenly not for the better. Since starting the wellness program, those episodes for the most part have gone away which makes my wife and family happier.
Dr. McManus and the whole team are wonderful and they care so much to do what they can to make you successful.
I was blown away at all of the benefits from doing the thirty day yeast cleanse that I will continue to reap for years to come. I highly recommend it. I plan on living a long, healthy, very active , pain free , medication free life.”
