Testosterone under attack in Australia. The last person you would ask for this advice is an endocrinologist!

On April 1, Australia put into place new restrictions on who can write prescriptions for testosterone. The government also lowered the level of normal from 8 to 6 nmol/L with absolutely NO scientific basis for doing so.  Here is an excerpt from my book ‘Chasing Antelopes.’ Australia’s idiocy when it comes to helping males! ‘When indicated, testosterone treatment is both essential and safe in elderly patients with symptomatic late onset hypogonadism, or testosterone deficiency,’ said study lead author Aksam A. Yassin, M.D., Ph.D., Ed.D., chairman…

The AFL, ASADA and Essendon

What a great victory for Essendon. I was surprised, frankly, that the AFL tribunal had the fortitude to go against the powerful ASADA and come up with a just verdict. The vitriol directed at James Hird and Dean Robinson was horrific and hate-filled and misinformed reporters who are wannabe vicarious foot-ball players didn’t make it easy for the public to understand what might have happened. The fact that Paddy Ryder was turned into an emotional mess because of insinuations made to him by ASADA was not…

Australia’s Attitude to Testosterone

It is dismaying to see that Australia so often keeps falling on the wrong side of sensible. Judging from our reactions to Essendon FC, peptides and male hormonal support in general, we are virtually medieval. The PBS is no longer going to allow GPs to prescribe testosterone for men (estrogen is fine for women, though) from April 1, on the PBS system.  That is unless they get ‘permission’ from a urologist or endocrinologist, neither of whom would have any idea about why men might need…

Type 2 Diabetes (T2D), Metabolic Syndrome and taking medicines unnecessarily (‘just in case’.)

The LCHF Conference in South Africa, would have been a revelation to the general public that came to the Sunday conference. People learned that T2D can be ‘cured’ in just a few days after starting a LCHF diet. The medical profession is becoming less skilled in optimal disease management because the ‘6 minute consult’ cannot allow doctors to develop refined clinical skills. Lab tests dictate treatments, which makes no sense as they are meant to be used as a guide to the clinical assessment, but that…

The Medical Lies about Type 2 Diabetes

One of the world’s greatest medical conferences just concluded in Cape Town, South Africa. Professor Tim Noakes assembled an astounding group of world experts in the fields of statistics, nutrition and sports physiology to explain for the very first time to an international audience, what the real story is concerning diet, heart disease and diabetes. Listen up! Everything you have learned about diet and its association with obesity, heart disease and diabetes is WRONG. Unveiled was a series of lectures showing clearly that when properly…

Vitamin K2-MK-7 -Essential but currently AWOL

Vitamin K2-MK-7 has finally emerged to be recognised for what it is – a life saver! The French and Japanese have the lowest rates of heart disease in the world, yet they are known to be significant smokers. That, and the fact that the French have a high fat diet: indeed just the opposite of that which has been recommended in the western world for 40 years, but which has given us increased rates of type 2 diabetes, a global obesity epidemic and no significant change in the…

Anabolic Steroids, Growth Hormone and other ‘bad boys!’

There is nothing like perception getting in the way of reality.  ‘Facts’ derived from every Tom, Dick and Harry’s consensus(es) aren’t facts at all but this is now becoming a common means of establishing ‘facts’ in a world that is becoming less careful about how it uses science to establish what is true and what is a lie. Now, it is simply a matter that if enough people believe something, it becomes an ‘established fact.’  We’ve seen this well demonstrated in the carbon dioxide and global warming ‘debate’ but it…
