There was a time, not long ago, when hormone therapy was a discrete topic, whispered about among the various alternatives to so-called conventional medicine. Needless to say, a lot has changed in recent years. Responsible management of hormone levels in men and women has become a gateway to a healthy, balanced and more productive life.
Last week I received an advanced copy of a new book called The Testosterone Optimization Therapy Bible. The book was co-authored by Jay Campbell and Jim Brown and I don’t mind saying that this is one of the most well-crafted, thorough, and definitive resources for anyone interested in tapping into the true power of hormone optimization and its seemingly endless list of life enriching benefits.
The authors were kind enough to grant me permission to share an excerpt from the book. I’m sharing this along with my most sincere recommendation. During a time when the world is flooded with misinformation and wannabe experts, this is the best book I’ve ever read on the topic.
The Testosterone Optimization Therapy Bible
By Jay Campbell and Jim Brown
The Unapologetic Truth about Testosterone
We live in some interesting times for men. Our bodies are fragile and aging prematurely from the constant assault of urban environments, poor nutrition, and sedentary lifestyles, and this is causing many men to question their own masculinity. Is it any wonder our role in Western society is being questioned as well? These are not disconnected phenomena. Male health is faltering and too many men are living lives of quiet desperation, wishing for their weak bodies to become ﬁt, wondering where their zest for life went, and abandoning any thought of ever getting it back.
But there is hope. The research has never been clearer, not only about how male bodies are being destroyed by our modern environments and lifestyles, but ALSO how proven medical therapies can reverse the trend and return men to lives of vitality and contribution. In this book, we provide you with the scientiﬁcally proven method for optimizing the most important hormone in your body: Testosterone. And by the time you’re done reading, you’ll understand why optimizing your testosterone will transform your body, mind, and spirit.
Make no mistake, this book is about much more than undergoing testosterone therapy for purely physical or cosmetic reasons. We’re going to show you how to optimize your testosterone, and your entire life. Throughout this book, we will emphasize that testosterone therapy is a complete lifestyle, and is much more than simply taking a therapeutic dose of testosterone under your doctor’s care. Rather than simply viewing it as Testosterone Replacement Therapy, we invite you to make the shift and begin to see it as Testosterone Optimization Therapy (TOT).
Observant readers will note that much of the literature around testosterone therapy to date uses the term “Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT).” In this book, we put an end to that acronym for good. The idea of replacing “normal” testosterone levels in a world where the average man has suboptimal and consistently declining natural levels of testosterone makes no sense. This book goes far beyond merely replacing anything. This book is about optimizing testosterone levels in order for men to reach peak levels of health. As a result, we will exclusively use the term Testosterone Optimization Therapy (TOT) throughout the book, and say with absolute conﬁdence that if you use our book as a guide while working closely with the right physician, you will reach levels of health beyond anything you believed could be possible for you. And whether you’re already convinced of the merits of TOT, or just starting to learn about the foundational role testosterone plays in your life, there is a single fact that bears repeating:
Testosterone is what makes men, MEN.
If you are one of the seekers who has already experienced the indisputable beneﬁts of therapeutic testosterone, this book will educate you on the latest and most cutting-edge science behind TOT. We analyze and dissect the best testosterone optimization protocols so that you can make the most informed decision possible when working with a progressive physician and/or when designing your own customized testosterone therapy protocol.
Alternatively, you may be one of the millions of men whose natural testosterone levels have declined so dramatically that your zest for life no longer exists. Whether you’re in your 20s, your 30s, or even approaching “middle age,” you wonder if you are destined to spend the rest of your life feeling lousy, tired, and lethargic. Deep down, you know you don’t have to, and that’s why you’ve picked up this book.
As you read the book, you’ll see how TOT is the paradigm-changing solution you need for living an exciting and purposeful life. And we should know: We have been living the pursuit of optimization for close to 30 years. We have tinkered, experimented, played human guinea pig, and bio-hacked our way to the physical and spiritual manifestation of OPTIMIZED MEN. Doing the work on ourselves has afforded us the opportunity to give back and help countless men around the world radically optimize and ultimately transform their lives.
