Interview with Nelson Vergel:
Miracle drug or fake science?
Low testosterone. For men, these words have the same foul odor as "impotence," "shrinkage" or "Justin Bieber." The topic is taboo. Throughout civilization testosterone has been prized as the lifeblood of manhood, so a deficit would imply, by definition, that we are somehow less manly...

Testosterone replacement therapy is not without side effects, although most are manageable. I've been taking testosterone replacement for 16 years and for the most part have had few side effects thanks to careful monitoring. It's critical that you are monitored for side effects in addition to your testosterone level...

HOUSTON February 22, 2011 "Testosterone: A Man's Guide - Practical Tips for Boosting Physical, Mental and Sexual Vitality" (Milestones Publishing, available on amazon.com) is a recent publication that educates sexually active men about testosterone deficiency. The book discusses the symptoms, proper diagnosis, and treatment options, along with practical "how-to" information created by an advocate and patient for 20 years regarding testosterone therapy.
Results from one of the largest studies ever done on testosterone deficiency, the Hypogonadism in Males (HIM) published in 2006, showed overall 39 percent of testosterone deficiency (hypogonadism) in the U.S. is apparent in men aged 45 or older. Current data estimates that 13 million men in the U.S. may experience testosterone deficiency. However, less than 10 percent receive treatment. Many of these men are suffering needlessly with hypogonadism symptoms of sexual dysfunction, fatigue, low mood and mental focus.
So why are so many men not receiving treatment for hypogonadism? Men are known for not normally reacting by reaching out to inform their doctors about their erectile and stamina problems. For many, being unable to have an erection or desire for sex is a private and frequently shameful problem. How many men and their partners are suffering in silence, hoping that their dysfunction will pass? What they may not know may extend their problem unnecessarily. But now there is hope.
"Testosterone: A Man's Guide - Practical Tips for Boosting Physical, Mental and Sexual Vitality," educates men struggling with mood and sexual performance on increasing testosterone, while minimizing known side effects. This book guides them on applying for free access to testosterone via patient assistance programs, finding physicians that are educated in testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), reviews of the significance regarding food and supplements that may affect testosterone; it weighs the pros and cons of TRT options (i.e. gels, injections, pellets, and oral products), how to obtain customized TRT products from specialized pharmacies, a listing of testosterone studies, reliable websites and online discussion groups regarding TRT.
Nelson Vergel is the co-author of "Built to Survive: A Comprehensive Guide on the Medical Use of Anabolic Therapies, Nutrition and Exercise for HIV+ Women and Men," and the founder of Body Positive Wellness Clinic in Houston. He obtained a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from McGill University and his MBA from the University of Houston. His advocacy regarding testosterone therapy for over 20 years is seen in this patient-friendly book. His first-hand experience, followed by trial-and-error episodes attests to Vergel's desire in assisting men struggling with these symptoms.
Physicians and patients are already boasting about the insight that is prevalent once the page turns. Dr. Michael Scally, a prominent expert on men's health said, "This is the first and only book that approaches testosterone in a friendly and informative manner for men. Nelson deeply cares about men's health. It is more than a passing interest. For him, it is a matter of life and living."
"As a physician," Dr. Paul Bellman, well known in New York City, "who treats testosterone deficient male patients I have found Nelson's book so informatively and clearly written that I have recommended his book to medical colleagues. I hope Nelson's book gains the wide readership it deserves because of its power to improve the health and quality of life of countless individuals."
Regarding his book Vergel said, "Testosterone therapy saved my life, so I wanted to share this information with all men. Besides researching data on different options, I have purposely tried most of the products that I discuss in this book to provide practical tips on each one. I have also been lucky enough to learn from experiences of many people using these products via my online groups and lectures in the past 20 years. It is my hope that this book will save readers time and trouble by preventing costly mistakes, wasted time, and needless suffering."
