Penis Atrophy…Doctor Talk for Penis Shrinking
And How to Stop it from Happening to You
Finding out his penis is shrinking as he gets older was like a swift kick in the crotch from Mother Nature.
The word for the shrinking of organs as humans age is at- rophy and yes it applies to the penis. Of course, this doesn’t sit well with men like Mark, who are already wor- ried about virility, to go back to the age old question of size. After living to 40 and reaching an age of appreciating what they’ve got, finding out that the size is now going to leave makes most men think…
How Penis Shrinkage Happens or “Where Did My Testosterone Go?”
According to Life Extension Magazine, it is a scientific fact that without enough testosterone, the quality of a man’s sex life is adversely affected and the penis shrinks. After age 40, as men age their testosterone output decreases as estrogen levels increase. In fact, some of the testosterone is converted into estrogen. One report showed that the average 54 year old man has more estrogen than the average 59 year old woman. And to make matters worse…
High estrogen shuts down the normal production of tes- tosterone. Excess estrogen also binds testosterone and blocks it from being absorbed in the genital area. Testos- terone is what promotes sexual desire, performance and most importantly maintains penis size and growth.
Testosterone production begins in the brain. The brain de- tects when testosterone level is low. It then sends out a hormone that goes through the body to the testes to create testosterone. 90% of testosterone is created by the testes.
In some men, the testes lose their ability to produce testos- terone, no matter how much of the hormone the brain sends out.
In other words, the brain is saying yes, but the testes are saying no.
What can be done?
Numerous studies show that maintaining the testosterone levels of a healthy 21 year old will erase the issues of libido and penis shrinkage over time. The trick to doing this is to create natural testosterone without creating a testosterone to estrogen conversion overload.
Testosterone patches, creams and pills don’t work for many men because it is testosterone that is not naturally created by the body and will convert into even more es- trogen, which makes the hormone imbalance even worse.
Lifestyle changes, such as reducing alcohol consumption and quitting smoking, can produce a dramatic effect in the estrogen-testosterone balance. Using a natural testosterone enhancing formula can make immediate changes in your body’s ability to create and release testosterone.
There are herbs and herbal formulas that can safely return testosterone levels to a youthful state in any man. It naturally increases the hormone released by the brain and the testes ability to create testosterone.
Mark Wiley is already feeling his libido rise with lifestyle changes and taking testosterone inducing herbs. He can already tell a difference in the thickness of his erections and he has noticed that he has more erections more often and that he hangs larger in his flaccid state (non-erect).
“For me that is going in the right direction”, said Mark. “I didn’t want to wait until I was a testosterone depleted and limp old man to do something about it. I have a wife to satisfy well into retirement!”
