I had just turned 40 and realised that life was starting to slip away from me.What happened to the notion that life begins at 40,I wondered?Overweight and tired,I joined a gym hoping for some sort of salvation.I could not understand that after 3 months of training relatively hard I was not making any progress.I watched the youngsters at gym changing their physique’s in front of my eyes with much disappointment in myself.
Not giving up on myself yet, I did some serious introspection and investigation to rule out a couple things.Low T was first on my list to cross off as a candidate.I approached the T-clinic as my first resort.Behold,I discovered I had low testosterone levels and the clinical symptoms were spot on.
Too my surprise I also discovered my insulin levels were sky high and was preventing me from burning fat. I am now almost 3 months in with my testosterone replacement therapy and damn,I FEEL GOOD.
I laughed at first when Dr Mark said he could make me feel like I am 21 again.I feel like I am actually 18 years old at this point. My energy levels are up.I am the ‘ultimate sportsman’ in the bedroom.My lean muscle mass has increased.
My insulin has steadily come down and with that my fat levels are taking a dive.My strength at gym isconcentration in the cockpit has increased and my research for my thesis for my Bcom degree in aviation business management is looking good due to the new gained razor sharp mental focus.
Gratitude is my primary emotion and I cannot thank Dr Mark Opperman and the team at the T- Clinic enough for taking a holistic view regarding my hormone levels. Balancing all my hormones is my goal at the moment.Maybe life does begin at 40.
