Shelton and Rajfer (2012) noted that androgen deficiency in aging men is common, and the potential sequelae are numerous. In addition to low libido, erectile dysfunction, decreased bone density, depressed mood, and decline in cognition, studies suggest strong correlations between low testosterone, obesity, and the metabolic syndrome. Because causation and its directionality remain uncertain, the functional and cardiovascular risks associated with androgen deficiency have led to intense investigation of testosterone replacement therapy in older men. Although promising, evidence for definitive benefit or detriment is not conclusive, and treatment of LOH is complicated.
My SD came on suddenly and in a very severe form last year when I was grieving the sudden death of my brother. It covered my entire chin, both of my cheeks, and the sides of my nose in red, raw scales. I looked awful and my face itched bad and burned worse. I went to see a doctor who prescribed ketoconazole. After 6 weeks of only minimal improvement he said hydrocortisone one week on and one week off. I said NO. I ordered and started using Biom8, supplementing it with caprylic acid pills and zinc. My SD improved so much that I cancelled the next appointment with the doctor. I started adding 5-6 drops of oregano essential oil per ounce of Biom8 about 3 months into the treatment and saw my skin improve even faster. I now use Ph balancing soap and cleansing cream additionally, and my skin seems better than ever. I even use makeup without a problem! I am taking better care of myself and my skin, which means my routine always begins with Biom8 infused with oregano essential oil. Thank you for this great product!
