This is the third video on the functional medicine approaches to low testosterone.
When we are trying to discover the cause of low testosterone, one place to look is the level of cortisol. Cortisol is a person’s stress hormone. It goes up whenever they are engaged in a stressful situation. If you are stressed for a long period of time, then your body will start building cortisol out of the building blocks for testosterone. This robs your body of what it needs to create a normal, healthy level of testosterone.
