Many people feel the onset of generalized aches and pains as they get older and feel this is normal and they have to live with it. You may even feel that you don’t recover well after exercising or get injured more easily. The good news is that there may be something that you can do about this.
Low Testosterone is often the culprit for these symptoms–especially when you get around 40 – 50 years old. Testosterone is a hormone that we often think about with sex drive and energy, but it is a key hormone for helping your body to heal properly. An optimal Testosterone level enables your body to deal with the day to day physical traumas, and to recover from exercise. You also feel more energized, have more balanced moods and think more clearly.
You are bombarded by many things in your environment that can decrease your Testosterone: pesticides, stress, chemicals in skin care, medications, etc. It is important to have an optimal Testosterone level in order for you to feel great, heal well and prevent diseases. The first step is to check your Testosterone level and see if it is in an optimal range. Please keep in mind that it may read “normal” but “normal” is not always optimal. Have a practitioner trained in hormones interpret your results.
