Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:00:04] All right, so, one of the big things that we want to run through, real quick, is hormones. So a lot of people have been talking about, you know, oh, well, you know, steroids do this and steroids is at and all. What the big thing is that first of all, it’s just classified. What steroid is. A steroid is, a class of chemicals. So estrogen, progesterone, cortisol, testosterone, those are all steroids. So by talking about, you know, people being on steroids, the vast majority of women are on steroids because they’re taking estrogen based, birth control, estrogens catabolic. It’s not really great. You want to kind of monitor where that is. It has fantastic things and very specific reasons for women. Not so much for animal control that one as much as you want as you can, keep it low. There’s lots of cancer. Things evolve, you know, around estrogen replacement therapy and stuff like that. So you got to watch the amount of estrogens that are in your body. They create all sorts of problems. There’s all sorts of other factors in mimicking hormones. Chemicals are out. Atrazine is a big one. BPA is a big one. You know, they’re big all around.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:01:11] The big thing is we talked about, you know, some of the things that I work on, ulcerative colitis. Ms.. Celiac, IBS, dementia, there’s all sorts of things. I can’t get most of those things to resolve without using testosterone. Testosterone is the healing hormone in is that your body uses to repair regenerate all tissue bone density issues osteoporosis, osteopenia as a lack of testosterone problem. We’ve known for forever. That, osteoporosis. You know, the osteoblasts, the little cells that make more bone, they respond to testosterone alone. Osteo class that wants to break bone down, will listen to estrogen and won’t break bone down as fast. And so the right. That’s what you should use. Now we should use a Sjöström. So you know it’s erectile dysfunction. It’s depression. It’s anxiety. It’s metabolic function. It’s brain function. It’s sleep. It’s everything in the body heals, regenerates and repairs because of testosterone.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:02:09] So the question comes up well, well, why is it gotten such a bad rap? Why is why is everybody hate it? Well, in the 80s, George W Bush pushed forward a something called dare. And it was it’s entire intents and purposes was to, bastardize slander and say horrible things about, cannabis, testosterone and psilocybin, and psychedelics. I have no evidence of this, but I personally believe that he was he was, let’s just say. Convinced by pharmaceutical companies to do this for them. And you say, well, why would they do that? Pharmaceutical companies are 100% interested in our health and our health alone. They have no interest in money, just in our health and well-being. That that might not, as it pans out, might not be 100% accurate. So if you look at just testosterone, do you say, well, if you don’t have testosterone, what do you need? You’re going to need osteoporosis drugs. You’re going to need drugs for anxiety, drugs for depression. You’re going to do drugs for bone loss. You’re gonna need, sorry, muscle loss or at electives. You need, things for energy. You’re going to need things for erectile issues. Which, by the way, testosterone is fantastic for erectile dysfunction, but the clitoris and the penis are the same tissue. Embryonic. So guess what happens when women get their testosterone levels up where they’re supposed to be? 150 to 250. The blood flow nerve function goes back to the clitoris in gorging it getting much stronger, much easier, much better orgasm.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:03:37] So FYI, it’s phenomenal for both men and women to take this awesomeness hypercritical to health for both men and women to take it. So if you take testosterone, which is not a very expensive drug, you can get it a lot of different places. This eliminates a host of other drugs that you would then need, to become healthy or just have no symptoms. So that’s one of the things, cannabis, obviously, I’ve talked about how, you know, you can replace opioids with it, and it’s a fantastic for PTSD and fantastic for anxiety. Psilocybin has been proven to be unbelievably safe. And one of the major cures and treatments for depression, anxiety, and, PTSD. However, I mean, you can grow psilocybin in your garage for 200 bucks, and that’s all you’re going to have to have. So obviously you can’t make money off of selling for a and from a pharmaceutical standpoint. So I’ve had to go away. Tons of research on it was in the 60s and 70s, before it was made illegal. fantastic stuff.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:04:33] So again, testosterone has gotten this horrible, terrible rap. People call it unnatural to take testosterone. Your body makes testosterone. How much more natural could you get? That’s absurd. You have 2000 receptors on every organ. Every every part of your body, every tissue in your body has testosterone receptors because it’s so hypercritical. The idea of calling it unnatural, silly. It’s massive propaganda, unbelievable propaganda. Now there are some that are synthetically made. So for instance, and I’ll just throw this one out. So right now, people ask me how much I’m taking on this research. I’m roughly about 300mg of superior a week and about 100mg of deca a week. Natural and aconite, deca. So the way I view it is it’s natural if that’s what the receptor sites are asking for. So in a testosterone receptor, if you give it testosterone and I’m fine with the the and Anthony propionate if that’s what the receptors are asking for and you give it to it, that’s natural.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:05:32] So the 300mg recipient I take I consider natural. Just like I consider taking B vitamins or hormone D3 or, you know, any other nutrients I’m taking. It’s essentially the body specifically is asking for. It’s a natural thing. Now the deca, the natural injected I am taking is synthetic and it’s not natural. But I love it because it really helps with joint pain. It helps with joint function. It helps with all sorts of different things. It’s pretty anabolic, but it is very, very, very steady and very easy. You know, all the side effects, everything to really show that, it was first used to battle out electricity, which is muscle wasting and cancer and Aids patients. And we’ve seen unbelievably fantastic results for giving this stuff to cancer patients.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:06:17] Cancer is another thing that we really want to start to, beef up the testosterone for so you can heal. There has been zero evidence ever that testosterone increased a cancer or made it worse. So that’s that’s one of those things people say, well, it’s bad for X, Y, and Z. Show me the research. The research I have shows that, high levels of testosterone, super physiological, so above normal, actually, each cholesterol, planning out of your arteries, the actual definition you want to look it up would be, that, super physiological levels of testosterone increase cholesterol exudates for macrophage. So that’s, that’s that was the title of the research article. I’m going to post that one as well. So there’s lots and lots and lots and lots of evidence that that normal to high levels of testosterone are substantially healthier for you than low testosterone. In fact, there is no research I have read that shows low levels of testosterone is healthy for anybody.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:07:15] So when I talk about I’m trying to do the bodybuilding thing, I’m trying to do this as healthy and as natural as possible. That’s what we’re talking about. So I will grant you that that is not natural and probably not 180. And even the levels that I’m at, I apply the testosterone levels to my same 120% rule, which is I figure out what I what I think 100% of my knees are, and then I give myself a little bit of a cushion in case I need extra that day. I wasn’t planning on. I don’t apply that to the deck of that. You know, I, you know, we talked with Cuchillo and some of those guys, and they were giving us a level that some of those coaches were pushing. And 300mg is nothing like I’ve got guys who just maintain all function, all right, to 25 to 30 to 50mg a week. So it’s not a giant amount. So for those of you who don’t know, is 300mg a lot? You know, there are some with on deck and eight where they’re giving thousand milligrams. This is just for medical treatment, 1000mg. If they do it once a month, I’m doing 300 a week, or they do it once every two weeks.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:08:19] So the way I’m doing mine and splitting it up into three different injections throughout the week so I can keep the I can keep that highest natural, normal level going without having these big swings. It’s the big swings and I’m worried about now. Quick things with testosterone. I talk about this all the time. You guys can I probably I made 50 videos on testosterone. You guys know look them up. But, big things you got to worry about are you got to look for your HGH coming out. What’s your hemoglobin? Hematocrit levels. So testosterone can increase the amount of red blood cells you guys produce, which is actually awesome to a certain point. So it’s kind of this parabolic curve, right. Because the more hemoglobin hematocrit you have the more oxygen you can carry. And so it’s good. It’s better it’s better, it’s better questionable. And then once you get to a certain point of HGH becomes bad because now your blood gets too thick and the viscosity of a fluid increases hydrostatic pressure, or it increases your blood pressure. So you got to watch that. You don’t wanna see increased pressure on their blood vessels in the heart to become a problem. So you just draw your blood every couple of months, if you get high, you donate, say, three lives. Everybody’s happy.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:09:21] There’s a conversion to DHT, which is wildly anabolic, which is fantastic, but it also damages. We think it damages the prostate, and it definitely damages the hairline. I don’t have to worry about hairline issues. So, you know, in fact, I’d prefer it if all the rest of the hair clot would have. Wouldn’t have to shave it anymore. But so that’s one of those things. Those levels are going to be high. But you can you can pull DHT labs. Yeah. If you’re a woman or your guy who’s work at your hairline, they’re not that hard to block. They’re not that hard to monitor and deal with. And also estrogen, which is why we use aromatase inhibitors to keep it from converting over. And that’s a, that’s a big piece, you know, anastrozole. Yeah. There’s, there’s a, there’s a number of them. And that is when we use the mouse. And that keeps your estrogen levels low. I like to keep asters in levels and men below 40. With women, I want no hot flushes, night sweats or vaginal dryness, so that I like those levels pretty low because, again, I’m worried about cancer.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:10:17] So that’s a little bit brief overview. Everybody’s wondering about, I’m also taking, Somalian, and Portland, as peptides. The, the great thing about those is that when you take those peptides, your body still has the check and balance. Just a minute. So you almost can’t take too much. So you can take whatever you want. Your body will regulate it, regulate the amount that you produce, because peptides, basically convince your body to naturally produce more. So the peptides, excuse me, for my anterior pituitary to produce more growth hormone than it was normally going to. But if we get to a certain level, the somatostatin will still come in and be like, you can’t produce more than this level. And so that’s the check. It balances. It’s now starting to check and balancing where we’re looking at.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:11:00] So, if you’re gonna do peptides, make sure you’re working with somebody who knows what they’re doing. The things are super powerful. They’re awesome. They work really well. There’s a safety profile with really good with the right ones, injecting them properly, using the correct time conjunction with other supplementation. They’re fantastic. You got to use them. Right. So, you know, get with somebody. Most your docs are not going to understand peptides. It’s a new thing. It requires a lot of reading, a lot of chemistry, and most docs are just not going to do the homework to get them done. Right. But they’re fantastic if you want to use them. I’m also using melatonin now so I can darker my skin. Everyone keep telling me like, dude, your super white like darken that skin up. It’s intense. So we’re going to throw some lightning in there and, darken that up. Be very careful with that one. If you don’t know what you’re doing with it. It’s it can be tricky. So that’s where the hormones are that can wear that.

[00:11:47] So there’s we’re going to talk about that a lot more. Ask us all your questions. You want to and we’ll kind of knock this stuff out. It’s super critical for health. Get your levels checked. You don’t have to work with me. Get to get with somebody who knows what they’re doing. I would recommend, you know, two injections a week for men and for women. Because that keeps the levels more accurate, more stable. Because testosterone is A7A half life. So a lot of people who take an injection on Monday, if you take ten minutes on Monday, by next Monday, one week, seven days later, you’re at about five, you know, so depending on Esther function, that’s more or less what we’re looking at. Average for testosterone. So that’s why a lot of guys you take a shot on Monday, by Sunday they’re like, man, I feel them dragging. I don’t feel as good as I used to, like I don’t know, but then Monday and Tuesday I feel awesome. Okay. But your dose up and take it twice a week. You know, work for somebody on that one. It’s not exactly how you want to go. About 55% twice. Sweet and that I can be where you want to be. But, that’s some of the big stuff. Testosterone is such a hypercritical thing for health and wellness. You know, the fact that we get so much pushback on it just shows the power that, you know, farm on. These guys have to keep you guys in the dark and keep the misinformation going.
