Our modern stressful lifestyles have led to a shocking drop in testosterone levels in men. Ultra processed foods, metabolic stress, lack of sleep, and a sedentary lifestyle are all factors that have contributed to this sharp decline. Education and an understanding of the key functions of testosterone and the role it plays in preventing chronic disease can help men optimize their levels and ultimately feel better.
Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with Dr. Sunjya Schweig for a masterclass on testosterone. He shares the top factors that are plummeting testosterone levels, how to measure testosterone levels and options for testosterone replacement therapy. Dr. Schweig also shares practical steps that can be implemented to help increase testosterone and the diseases and conditions that opitmal testosterone levels can prevent.

He is the founder and president of the California Center for Functional Medicine (CCFM), where he and his team of expert clinicians see patients all over the U.S. and provide personalized, precision medical care for a clear path to optimal health.
