In this video, Dr. Berg talks about another cause of low testosterone which is the high amounts of iron. As we age, we accumulate more iron and the body has difficult time getting rid of the iron. Hemochromatosis is a genetic condition where there’s a problem of regulating iron and the body starts accumulating way too much. Iron generates a type of free radical called hydroxyl radical which is very destructive to the body especially in the liver and too much iron in the liver will cause cirrhosis.
Symptoms of Low Testosterone

• Atrophy of the testicles
Symptoms of Hemochromatosis:
• Inflammation in the joints
• Excessive Oxidation – arteries, brain
• Liver Cirrhosis

6. Intermittent Fasting
7. Increase Zinc
