Male Testosterone is often seen as the key to men’s health and performance. However, board-certified urologist Dr. Tracy Gapin is challenging this notion and offering new ways to improve men’s well-being beyond just testosterone. In this episode of The Human Upgrade™, he explains how a systems biology approach can provide a broader perspective on men’s health.
Dr. Tracy highlights the alarming decrease in testosterone levels over the last 30 years, with free testosterone down over 45%. He attributes this to endocrine disruptors, toxins, and chemicals in our environment that are crushing men’s health and testosterone. These toxins are found in food, water, and personal care products, and they are almost everywhere.
In his book, “The Testosterone Switch,” Dr. Tracy details how he went on a quest to find answers after experiencing his own health crash at 42. He founded a foundation and created a proprietary approach that goes beyond conventional options to address root causes of men’s issues and solve them.
Dr. Tracy emphasizes the impact of mindset, stress, and environment on energy and focus. He recommends a trifecta of prioritizing sleep, building resilience to stress, and creating consistent behaviors with intention for higher performance for male testosterone. He also explores various topics such as epigenetic coaching, hormones, peptide therapy, biometric monitoring, and unique nutrition and lifestyle interventions to improve health and performance.
