Today we’re going to talk about manopause. People also call this male menopause or andropause. If you’re a male and you’re getting older, you may experience symptoms of low testosterone or late-onset hypogonadism.

Symptoms of male menopause:
• Mood swings (irritability, low tolerance to stress, anxiety, depression)
• Decreased muscle mass
• Lack of energy
• Man boobs (gynecomastia)
• Loss of sleep
• ED (erectile dysfunction)
• Low libido

The liver is very important in keeping testosterone levels normalized. There is a protein that binds with hormones, especially testosterone. High amounts of this protein can cause your testosterone to be low. Insulin resistance, a fatty liver, and cirrhosis can cause high amounts of this protein.

Potential remedies for andropause (male menopause):
1. The healthy keto diet and intermittent fasting
2. Cruciferous vegetables
3. Zinc (100 mg per day in a blend of other trace minerals)
4. Korean red ginseng
5. Choline (fix your liver)

A few more things you could do:
• Try to keep your stress as low as possible (counter stress with exercise like long walks)
• Ger more sleep (do less intense exercise like long walks if you’re not sleeping)
• Don’t snack on sugar or carbs (insulin will nullify testosterone)

It’s important to note that these natural remedies for manopause may not help unless you also fix your diet. High insulin can block your progress.

Taking testosterone can cause the gland that produces testosterone to shrink even more, causing you to become dependent on it. Over time, it may lose its effectiveness.

Statins can actually lower testosterone. If you’re on a statin for high cholesterol, you may want to give keto and intermittent fasting a try.

In this video, we’re going to talk about 7 natural ways to boost your testosterone. Take a look.

1. Increase your cholesterol intake – Do not go on a low-fat diet! Cholesterol is a precursor to testosterone.

2. Moderate protein – High amounts of protein can cause insulin to spike, which can disrupt a healthy hormone balance. 6-8 oz of meat per meal should be plenty.

3. Lower your carbs – Carbohydrates boost your insulin levels, which can lower your T level. A low-carb diet such as keto is ideal for boosting your testosterone naturally. Add intermittent fasting for an extra boost.

4. Exercise – High-intensity interval training (HIIT) will help stimulate testosterone.

5. Sleep – Getting enough sleep is vital to normal and healthy hormone levels. Poor quality and duration of sleep can cause an increase in cortisol, which can throw off your testosterone level. Long walks are great for getting better sleep and lowering cortisol.

6. Lower your estrogen – Testosterone and estrogen oppose each other. If you have high estrogen, you will have lower testosterone. Avoid soy and non-organic products.

7. Supplements – Zinc, Korean red ginseng, L-arginine, and D-aspartic acid are great supplements for supporting healthy testosterone levels.

The last couple of things I want to mention is that a fatty liver, high iron levels, and statin drugs may also cause low testosterone levels. Make sure you talk with your doctor about these potential problems.

Intermittent Fasting Basics:

Eating too frequently goes against the very programming of our genetics. It’s anti-survival.

Timestamps
0:00 Is fasting anti-survival?
0:52 The problem with frequent eating
1:45 Frequent eating is anti-survival

When some people are first introduced to fasting, they may think it’s anti-survival. However, frequent eating is actually anti-survival.

Many wild animals do not eat all day long. Domestic animals that are fed too frequently tend to be overweight. In the wild, fat animals typically have a fat layer around them to survive in cold temperatures. They don’t have visceral fat (fat around the organs) like humans do.

Humans are very similar to animals in regards to fasting. Only in the past 10,000 years, when there was the agricultural revolution, did humans start having problems with chronic disease. Now, we have access to food anytime we want. There is a deadly combination of available foods and cravings for those available foods.

From an evolutionary standpoint, our bodies were designed to eat less frequently. For example, we have way more hormones involved in releasing fuel (fat-burning) than we do for storing fuel.

In this video, we’re going to talk about how fasting influences our genetics.

Your genes are your blueprints or your code for building proteins. These proteins are involved in all of the biochemistry in your body—from making hormones and neurotransmitters to releasing stored glucose for fuel.

You have millions upon millions of these proteins, but they have to be instructed on what to do.

When someone does fasting, many interesting things happen to your genetics. Fasting is one very important part of your epigenetics.

Epigenetics are things that influence your genes. Your genes are like a series of light switches—they can be turned on and turned off. Epigenetics has the ability to turn on and off each light switch.

As an example, fasting positively influences the gene CFHR1, which regulates your cholesterol. It also influences the SIRT-3 gene, which has anti-aging potential.

Fasting also down-regulates genes like the APP gene that helps lower amyloid plaque, which is seen in neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s.

Fasting may also play a role in other genes that influence cancer risks.

You can begin seeing the benefits of fasting after just a 16-hour fast. One meal a day (OMAD) will give even more benefits.

Fasting can help:
• Lower inflammation
• Support your immune system
• Lower syndrome X
• Support healthy brain cells
• Promote a healthy mood and mind

In this video, we’re going to talk about how you can be calm instantly. If you are constantly wound up and just need an instant dose of calmness, this video is for you.

The sensation of being calm is greatly affected by your neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are similar to hormones. However, instead of being transported through the blood, they are transported through the nervous system.

The neurotransmitter GABA is inhibitory—this means that it calms everything down and relaxes you. It can decrease unhealthy impulses, anxiety, panic attacks, and depression.

In fact, when you have a drink at happy hour, what’s causing the happiness you experience is the GABA that is released. The problem is, the GABA goes away as soon as you stop drinking, which makes for an unhealthy habit or addiction. This is why you often feel anxiety, restlessness, and sleeplessness as withdrawal symptoms.

Instead of using alcohol or other toxic substances to increase GABA, you can drink lemon balm tea. This is a powerful natural GABA enhancer that significantly increases calmness instantly.

Let me clear up some of the confusion around high and low cortisol. Check this out.

4:35 What to do for cortisol resistance
5:15 What to do from a nutritional standpoint 

There is a lot of confusion around cortisol. Many people are unsure whether or not they may have high cortisol or low cortisol. Today I want to help clear up this confusion. 

Symptoms of high cortisol (Cushing’s syndrome):
• Large waist
• Thin leg muscles 
• Round face
• Insomnia 
• Blood sugar issues 
• Atrophy in the gluteus maximus (butt muscles) 
• Acne 
• Allergies 
• Low vitamin D
• Excessive thinking 
• Osteoporosis 

Symptoms of low cortisol (Addison’s syndrome):
• Thin waist
• Tan 
• Vitiligo 
• Poor immune system 
• Salt cravings all day long 
• You’re completely burnt out 

Cushing’s syndrome is very rare. Addison’s disease is also very rare. However, there can be a subclinical problem with cortisol. This means that it may not show up on a blood test or a saliva test until it’s very advanced. I believe many people have a subclinical cortisol problem that’s hard to detect with certain testing. 

With a subclinical cortisol problem, the receptor for cortisol has become downgraded. There is now a cortisol resistance problem. With this situation, you can actually have symptoms of both low cortisol and high cortisol.

To potentially help with cortisol resistance, you need to do whatever you can to inhibit the trigger for cortisol. You need to drop your stress. Isolate where your stress is coming from and do whatever you can to minimize the stress. There are things you can do as far as exercise, diet, nutrients, and even a certain massage technique that I’ve outlined in other videos. There is also something natural called Panax ginseng that may potentially help, along with lowering your stress.

Here’s why fasting lowers your thyroid hormone. Check this out. 

Timestamps:
0:00 Fasting effects on thyroid hormones 
0:15 Thyroid hormones
1:30 Why fasting lowers T3

In this video, we’re going to talk about fasting and thyroid hormones. Sometimes, going on a fast can lower a thyroid hormone called T3. This is the active form of the thyroid hormone. 

The pituitary communicates to the thyroid through a hormone called the thyroid stimulating hormone. One of the main ways hypothyroidism is diagnosed is by looking at the thyroid stimulating hormone. When you’re fasting and doing the healthy keto diet, you won’t see a change in the thyroid stimulating hormone. So, you are not going to have a true hypothyroid condition. 

The thyroid releases T4, which is the inactive form of the thyroid hormone. To become activated, it has to work through the liver and into the kidney. It converts from T4 to T3 (the active form). There is also something called reverse T3, which is the inactive version of T3. What determines the rate and ratio of this conversion of T4 to T3 or reverse T3 is the metabolic need. 

When you do a fast, you may see a slight decrease in T3. But, you will see an increase in the reverse T3. You’re body is becoming more efficient with its fuel, so the need for the active form of the thyroid hormone is going to be slightly less. The body will then put some of that hormone into a reserve until you need it. 

Situations where you could see higher amounts of reverse T3:

1. When you’re doing fasting

2. When you’re recovering from:
• A stroke 
• An injury 
• Overtraining 
• An illness 
• A surgery 

3. When you’ve just lost a good amount of weight

It’s not a disease state. You will still feel fine, you will still lose weight, and you won’t have any symptoms.

In this video, I want to talk to you about how fasting affects hormones.

I’m going to compare the effects of short (2-7 days) and long (8-20 days) fasts. This data is not based on intermittent fasting.

Adrenaline – This is a counter-regulatory hormone. During short fasts, adrenaline can increase. During long fasts, adrenaline lowers. When adrenaline levels are high, you may experience poor sleep. It can help to take calcium citrate or calcium lactate.

Cortisol – Cortisol is a stress hormone and a counter-regulatory hormone that will help prevent blood sugar levels from dropping too much. During short fasting, cortisol can raise, and during long fasts, cortisol tends to normalize.

Leptin – This is a hormone that helps you feel satisfied. When leptin is up, you feel satisfied and not hungry. However, way too much leptin causes leptin resistance—this is common in obese people. In turn, leptin stops working, so you never feel satisfied after eating. Both short and long fasts will lower leptin, which helps fix leptin resistance and restore your satisfaction after eating.

Insulin – One of the biggest benefits of fasting is lowering insulin levels. High insulin causes insulin resistance, which causes even higher levels of insulin that can develop into diabetes. Both short and long fasts help reduce insulin.

Serotonin – This hormone increases with both short and long fasts. Serotonin has a lot of cognitive benefits. It will help you sleep better at night and feel like you’re in a better state of well-being.

Growth hormone (GH) – This is the anti-aging hormone. It protects muscle, collagen, joints, and skin. Most people over 50 are deficient in GH. Both long and short-term fasting will increase growth hormone.

Glucagon – This is the opposing hormone to insulin. Levels of glucagon are raised with both short-term and long-term fasting. Glucagon helps you burn fat and prevent weight gain.

T3 – This thyroid hormone will actually lower with all forms of fasting. However, this will not harm your metabolism because it causes an increase in reverse T3.

Estrogen – Fasting will lower estrogen levels. This usually isn’t a big problem unless you have low estrogen. If you have low estrogen levels, you can take natural vitamin E to help balance your estrogen.

In this video, I want to talk about hot flashes. I’ve talked about different causes of hot flashes before, but I want to cover some other causes of hot flashes that you may not know about.

The hypothalamus is a region in your forebrain that controls the menstrual cycle. It works through the pituitary gland. Around age 52, you lose your ovarian function, also known as menopause. With that comes a loss of certain hormones. Your adrenal gland acts as a backup for these hormones.

During menopause, you may experience:
• Hot flashes
• Night sweats
• Anxiety
• Depression
• Stress
• Muscle loss
• Bone breakdown

Strengthening your adrenals is one of the best ways to help prevent menopause symptoms. You can strengthen your adrenals by getting quality sleep, lowering your stress levels, and normalizing your cortisol levels.

Your pituitary gland is a major storage site for vitamin E. When you go through menopause, your vitamin E levels may drop, which may cause more symptoms. A high-quality vitamin E complex can help reduce symptoms.

Iodine from sea help is also an effective remedy for hot flashes. Iodine helps balance estrogen dominance.

Improving adrenal function alone is typically effective. But there’s another cause of hot flashes, which is your liver. Your liver’s purpose is to detoxify chemicals, poisons, heavy metals, and excess hormones. It removes hormones when you have far too much.

The problem is, many people don’t have full liver function—especially after your 50s.

You can improve liver function by:
• Consume cruciferous vegetables (or DIM)
• Taking calcium D-glucarate
• Detoxing the liver
• Lowering ammonia
• Increase liver circulation

How Ketones Affect Hormones and the Endocrine System

How Ketones Affect Hormones and the Endocrine System

New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?

More specifically, you want help with How Ketones Affect Hormones and the Endocrine System?

let’s talk about the relationship
between ketones and your hormones how do ketones actually affect your
hormones well let’s take a look at the number one hormone first that’s involved
with ketones insulin in fact what controls the production of ketones is
when insulin is lowered okay when insulin is too high you cannot get into
ketosis your body is forced to run on glucose and if you don’t have any it’ll
tap into glucose from your stored sugar as glycogen or it will start making
sugar as this term called gluconeogenesis and it could make it
even from muscle protein so what triggers insulin is mainly the
carbohydrates and frequency of eating so when you’re going to low carb diet and
you lower insulin you have all these ketones it’s very very very therapeutic
for your body in many ways also when you go on a low-carb diet and you run your
body on ketones and your lower insulin you’re giving the pancreas a chance to
breathe and relax and recover now there’s this opposing hormone in the
pancreas okay there’s actually two different hormones one is insulin when
is glucagon this is different than glycogen glucagon is a hormone that
helps mobilize and burn fat it’s stimulated by a moderate amount of
protein or intense exercise or the reduction of carbs as well as the
reduction of insulin so they kind of work back and forth alright next one is
something called IGF insulin-like growth factor number one now what is that that
is a hormone that’s made by your liver that works very similar to growth
hormone so growth hormone is an anti aging hormone it’s a hormone that helps
you make proteins in the body muscle protein for example cartilage collagen
is made by the pituitary gland and it’s sent down into the liver and then it
triggers this process to make a GF so the functions of IGF are very similar
to growth hormone so growth hormone is an anti-aging it’s a fat burning hormone
and so is IGF IGF increases as you decrease insulin so they kind of work
back and forth so IGF mobilizes fat fuel okay when you’re not eating or when
you’re keeping insulin low as soon as you eat everything switches this goes
down and this goes up so now we’re into storing fat and using the calories that
you’re eating as energy whereas this hormone mobilizes the energy from your
storage your fat cell as well as stored sugar as well so IGF number one and
growth hormone that’s right here let me add cortisol what is cortisol cortisol
is an adrenal hormone that’s made by the outside of your adrenals and it’s called
a glucocorticoid because it’s involved in glucose in that when cortisol goes up
what it does is it mobilizes the storage sugar as well as protein and breaks up
the protein it’s called deamination okay you’re breaking up these amino acids and
it turns that into glucose which then triggers insulin so if you go through a
lot of stress chronic stress and you get this elevation of cortisol this is why
you get fat in the gut because the body’s mobilizing the proteins and
turning it into sugar and actually help you make more sugar and all that sugar
is being converted into fat around your gut it’s a survival mechanism so your
body wants to hold on the fat in case it’s starving and you’re not eating and
you can survive so this is why some people can even get fat by having too
much cortisol because cortisol eventually leads to a spike in insulin
okay next one is thyroid hormones now when you go on a ketogenic diet you make
Ketones many times you’ll see a drop in t3 this is the active form of thyroid
hormone so it’ll go a little bit lower is it a problem no it’s not because
ketones allow your body to extract more energy from the calories if you compare
it to sugar so it’s more efficient at extracting fuel so is less waste less
co2 so the thyroid actually does not have to work as hard so this goes down a
little bit what you won’t see is the thyroid stimulating hormones from the
pituitary and this is how they diagnose a hypothyroid condition so if we see no
change with this but this goes down it just means that your body has adapted
and it’s becoming more efficient and you’ll find that you really won’t happen
to negative symptoms your t3 will be a little bit down but you feel fine you
have a lot of energy because ketones actually give you more energy
ketones also by the way act as an antioxidant so it actually can help
protect against free radical damage now let’s talk about estrogen estrogen has
the effect of increasing the sensitivity of insulin so if you are low on estrogen
what you may find is that you have more symptoms with insulin resistance this
could be one of the reasons why a woman as she gets older and loses estrogen and
she has all those symptoms then she has blood sugar issues on top of that now
some women have estrogen dominant depending on much weight that they have
because postmenopausal if they have a lot more fat it’s the fat that makes the
estrogen not the ovary or not really the adrenal too much so if you have extra
weight after menopause you may find that your more estrogen dominant if you have
normal weight going to menopause you may find that your have low estrogen and you
may have an insulin problem because you’re losing the sensitivity so thereby
you’re having a bit of insulin resistance and that’s more of a blood
sugar issue and that you might crave carbs
you definitely need to do more the ketogenic diet so if you think about it
going on a ketogenic diet improves insulin resistance thereby improving
estrogen now antigens in a male body you’re going to decrease testosterone if
you’re on a high carb diet and you’re running more on insulin and you’re not
in ketosis when you go into ketosis by lowering the carbohydrate you have the
ability to enhance testosterone now the female body it’s a little bit different
when you actually are not into ketosis you’re doing a lot of carbs you develop
insulin resistance your body starts to make the male hormone testosterone and
this leads to hair loss facial hair a deep voice a gut and the mechanism for
that is very interesting I put a link down below if you’re interested but that
condition is called polycystic ovarian syndrome and you have this relationship
between high insulin is causing antigens but what will solve that is getting on
the ketogenic diet so if you’re consuming a lot of refined carbs or
sugar you’re going to be reducing your growth hormone
ketones help the thyroid to become more efficient they help balance estrogen as
well as antigens if you wanted to see that video on PCOS I put it right here
check it out

How Ketones Affect Hormones and the Endocrine System

Here’s The Video Description From YouTube

How do ketones affect your hormones and endocrine system? Watch this detailed video to find out.

Timestamps
0:07 Insulin 
1:09 Glucagon 
1:39 IGF-1 & GH
3:06 Cortisol
4:21 Thyroid
5:34 Estrogen 
6:50 Androgens

In this video, we’re going to talk about how ketones affect hormones and the endocrine system. 

1. Insulin
Lowered insulin triggers the production of ketones. When you have high insulin, you can’t get into ketosis. Carbohydrates and frequent eating are what mainly trigger insulin. Lowering your insulin and running your body on ketones can have a lot of health benefits. 

2. Glucagon 
Glucagon is a hormone that helps mobilize and burn fat. Glucagon is stimulated by a moderate amount of protein, intense exercise, and reduced insulin. 

3. IGF-1
This is a hormone that works very similar to growth hormone. IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor 1) mobilizes fat fuel when you’re not eating or when you’re keeping your insulin low. When you eat, IGF-1 goes down, and insulin goes up. 

4. Growth hormone 
Growth hormone is an anti-aging hormone, it helps make proteins in the body, and it’s a fat-burning hormone. 

5. Cortisol 
This is an adrenal hormone. If you go through a lot of stress, typically, your cortisol levels will be elevated. This elevated cortisol can eventually lead to a spike in insulin. 

6. Thyroid hormones 
When you’re on keto, and you start to make ketones, you might see a drop in T3 (the active form of thyroid hormone). This is not a problem because ketones are a much more efficient fuel than glucose, so the thyroid does not have to work as hard. Even though your T3 might be down, you should feel just fine and have lots of energy. 

7. Estrogen 
Estrogen can increase the sensitivity to insulin. If you have low estrogen levels, you may find that you have more symptoms of insulin resistance. Some women with extra weight after menopause may actually be more estrogen dominant because fat makes estrogen. The healthy keto diet may help.

8. Androgens
A high carb diet can decrease testosterone in the male body. In this situation, you’re running your body more on insulin, and you’re not in ketosis. When you get into ketosis by doing the keto diet, you can enhance testosterone. A high carb diet can actually increase testosterone in a woman’s body, causing hair loss, facial hair, a deep voice, and a gut because of the high insulin.
