The Care and Feeding of a Penis
By: Dr. William Wong, ND, PhD.
We can’t help it, it happens to all. Somewhere after 27 our body processes begin to turn against us. The natural mechanism that causes aging and deterioration kicks into gear round about 27 and from then to 35 it’s the steepest drop in health and conditioning levels we’ll ever face. After that is the slide slows down, but only some. It’s round about 35 that men become to come into the beginnings of their “change of life”. This happens because our hormonal balance changes. As the years progress we make less testosterone and make more estrogen. After 40, Andropause, the male menopause kicks in and with it comes an almost total cessation in the production of testosterone! It’s a safe bet that by 45 or 50 a man has more estrogen than his wife does! Physiological science now knows that it’s this estrogen dominance that causes all of the ravages of middle age. The falling out hair, the swollen prostate, the loss of muscle mass, lowered fitness and increasing girth in the waist area are all signs of estrogen dominance. (1). But the worst symptom of all is the lack erection size and lack of libido. Some would have you think that can all be cured by the “little blue pill”, not hardly.
Estrogen, (E), is the enemy of manhood. In women E is good for only five things: to 1) start the menstrual cycle, 2) to start labor in childbirth, 3) increase fat deposits from the belly down, 4) to create depression along with mood aggravation and lastly 5) to create fibrosis and fan the flames of cancer! (2,3). Most all of the good effects medicine has currently attributed to estrogen are being reevaluated in the light of the increases in breast, cervical and uterine cancer among women taking estrogen hormone replacement therapy and in women using soy isoflavones to increase their estrogen levels. (The product litigation lawyers already smell class action law suits against major agra business and pharmaceutical companies on these points).
In men E isn’t good for very much except for bodybuilders growing “***** tits” (Gynocomasty), making you emotional and moody. Over and above that, E decreases muscle mass, increases bodyfat, swells your prostate, and makes your hair fall out. Surprised about the last two? You and the rest of the world were told that having too much testosterone produces the Di Hydro Testosterone that did those nasty things to your prostate and scalp. Wrong, turns out its E that converts to DHT much more readily than T does. Testosterone dominant men don’t get swollen prostates or hair loss. (4). Look at the average pot bellied, bald, skinny armed 50+ year old; does he look like a poster boy for too much testosterone?What Testosterone dominant men do find happens a lot is having their valuable T converted into E at alarming rates. Why? Because as the PBS special “Assault on the Male” documented some years ago we live in an estrogen rich environment! Pesticides, preservatives, plastics, petroleum exhaust, synthetic fertilizers and soy products fill our world. (5). In a can of soy based baby formula or soy milk there may be as much estrogen as in a birth control pill. That’s the reason why little girls are hitting menstruation before they mature and according to Doris Rapp MD, the worlds leading pediatric allergist, why there has been an increase in male homosexuality and infertility. (6,7,. But in telling you why we’re in trouble we’re somewhat getting off the track here. What can we do within ourselves to control and reverse the situation? What can we do to restore full desire and sexual ability?
Well, many in bodybuilding circles are using the hair of the dog technique to control estrogen dominance. Clomid, a medication made from a less active form of estrogen, is being taken by many a “roid” user. (Roids or anabolic steroids are a class of drug that mimic testosterone in their muscle growing ability but have no libido or sexual improving effects at all. They are NOT testosterone). This Clomid E hormone fills up the receptor sites for estrogen and does not allow the estrogen being produced by the body to be taken up and used. It’s an OK technique, if you’re a female breast cancer patient! But estrogen is estrogen and even a weak estrogen will have feminizing, mood altering, libido killing and muscle loss side effects on a male!
We need to look for how nature controls estrogen dominance. Further, we need to find an answer that won’t be as bad or worse than the original disease! We find that answer in two places, our own South Western deserts and the High Andes mountains. From the south west we have the Mexican Yam plant from whose root can be made all sorts of hormonal products so natural the body takes it for it’s own. We see on the store shelves all sorts of DHEA, Pregnonalone, Estrogen, Progesterone and Androstene cream and oral supplements all made from Mexican yam.
DHEA and Pregnonelone have been touted as great supplements for men to increase their sexual ability. The great myth in natural health circles is that the bodies “Wisdom” can take this DHEA or Prgenonelone and makes it into Testosterone. NYET, there is no such “Wisdom” operating in your biochemistry! What the body truly works on is the principle of economy of action; sparing energy by doing the least it can to get by. What the body does do is to convert that stuff into what it can make easiest – which is Estrogen. Making a hormone is a process of whittling away to get a useable product. Cholesterol becomes DHEA, which then becomes Pregnonelone, which gets whittled at some more to turn into Estrogen. The good stuff of Progesterone and Testosterone come further on down the line. At any point a process called aromatization can up-convert any down line product into an upline product but in the main, reduction upon reduction of a cholesterol molecule is how hormones are made.
Is there “Wisdom” in the body to make DHEA or Pregnonelone keep on changing to Testosterone? Fact: when doing hormone tests on bodybuilders using DHEA and Pregnenolone to increase their T levels; the tests showed us that they were all dreadfully estrogen dominant with low testosterone! Worse than that, the T they did have was inactivated, bound up in the blood stream and not free to work. That body “Wisdom” must either have been out to lunch or not like bodybuilders!
There are only two Mexican Yam products that should be used by men: the Androstene and Progesterone creams. Andro in its various forms is great stuff – from increasing muscle mass to fighting erectile dysfunction it is the poor mans T shot. Since Andro is one step away from being T it’s just a short 15-min. jump in the liver from one to the other. But still, the T that Andro makes needs to be kept from upconverting into E. Enter progesterone (P). This is the hormone that preserves pregnancy in women, elevates mood, improves bone mass and does all of the good stuff formerly attributed to estrogen. Men are supposed to have some progesterone floating around their systems as well. P is E’s natural enemy. P is used by the body to control E. Whenever a gal is having heavy PMS with the short temper, body aches and roller coaster emotions, natural doctors know an application of progesterone cream is the answer. Within 30 min. a gal will go from grouchy tiger to happy kitten. (2). If you know any bodybuilders using steroid drugs, DHEA or Pregnenolone; if you know formerly hard charging business men over 45, do the symptoms I listed for PMS sound familiar? You bet they do, and they’re are a sign of having too much E. P works just as well for men in controlling estrogen as it does for women. (1).
So what do you do to get progesterone? Do you slink into the health food store and slyly ask for a jar of natural progesterone cream for your wife, girl friend or significant female other? Well you can but you don’t have to; there are progesterone cream products meant for men to control their estrogen problems. Use those. Now here’s the trick, use some but not too much. This is definitely a case where, unlike sex and money, more is not better! You see not only does P keep T from becoming E but also TOO much P can keep Andro from becoming T. Since all the testosterone we make comes from Andro, our own or supplemented, this is not a good thing. Most male progesterone creams are 10-mg of P per measured squirt. The 10-mg figure is half of what the women use. This 10-mg figure for a man’s cream was dreamt up by a Gynecologist. Hum, just how much about male hormones, their maintenance and balance does a gyno know about? Next to nothing!
Men’s progesterone cream comes in containers with a pump that administers a measured dose. One full stroke of the pump = 10-mg of P. Use about half a measured squirt most days. When you emotions are high and your mood is low and your penis insists at only hanging at the 6:30 clock position, use the full squirt that day. If the area behind your testicles is sore and you are having trouble passing water or you have the after pee dribbles, that means your prostate is swollen, use a full dose for a week. (Also see your doctor; just make sure he’s up to snuff on the latest hormone research, most docs aren’t). When you mood is great, your libido is up and your pecker points to 12 o’clock, use only 1⁄4 of a squirt a day. It all sounds complicated at first but you’ll get the hang of adjusting the dose to you changing daily needs. By the way don’t even think of using women’s prescription progesterone (synthetic progesterone). This stuff, being fake, has bad side effects for women never mind the side effects men would have! Study up on what testosterone expert Eugene Shippen MD has to say about preserving T in his book “The Testosterone Syndrome”. (1).
Now we get into hard core T protection. Maca. This refined powder from an Andes mountain turnip is THE THING for arresting estrogen dominance. Infertility in men and women is primarily caused by an excess of estrogen. (2). In women ovulation does not happen; or if ovulation does happen despite having too much E and not enough P, the fertilized egg cannot implant itself on the uterine wall to grow. In men E dominance lowers sperm count, sperm viability and decreases the amount of seminal fluid produced. This last effect also has the fun killing side effect of shortening our orgasms since there is not that much semen to ejaculate out! At it’s worst estrogen dominance can completely kill your sex urge, erectile ability and mental drive!
In South America pharmaceutical grade Maca is used to increase fertility and libido in both men and women by its effect of decreasing E and increasing P and unbinding T. (9). Maca is even used to prevent miscarriage caused by estrogen dominance during pregnancy. E is supposed to dwindle down to almost nothing during pregnancy while at second trimester P levels are supposed to be 486% higher than normal. (Excesses of E is one of three primary causes of miscarriage). (11).
For our causes, pharmaceutical grade Maca increases production of T and P, which in return control E. The usual effects of continued Maca use at the dose of 2 teaspoons (10ml) a day are: increased sexual desire, increased erection ability, increased sperm count, increased vitality of sperm, increased amount of seminal fluid (which leads to longer, stronger orgasms). (12). Best of all, these effects are felt within days of beginning to take the supplement, not weeks or months as with some Oriental herbs. What’s more, there are no side effects and the root is safe to take with any other supplement or medication.
We also need to remember that the minerals zinc and magnesium are essential to the body’s production of T. Zinc not only is needed to produce T; it also reduces the conversion of T into Estradiol (the worst and most cancer causing and prostate swelling form of estrogen). Zinc it is the building block of all epithelial tissue (muscle, skin, eyes, and internal organs) and we in the modern world get very, very little of it! Between all of these supplements, working together we can maintain a high level of what makes us men, keeps our women happy and keeps us strong while controlling that which would work against everything we’re striving for.

yes it was before my period and I also plan to use it again. it certainly made my ejaculations much stronger and increased my semen volume and also elevated my mood so I would say yes it can help in recovery. I like to mix it in with my shakes- blends very well with most stuff.
some very interesting stuff about maca. seems like there are different forms.

Effect of two different extracts of red maca in male rats with testosterone-induced prostatic hyperplasia.Gonzales GF, Vasquez V, Rodriguez D, Maldonado C, Mormontoy J, Portella J, Pajuelo M, Villegas L, Gasco M.
Biological and Physiological Sciences, Cayetano Heredia University, Lima, Peru. email@example.com
AIM: To determine the effect of two different extracts of red maca in male rats. METHODS: Prostatic hyperplasia was induced in male rats with testosterone enanthate (TE). The study comprised six groups: one control group (group 1), one group treated with TE (group 2), two groups treated with TE and aqueous extract of red maca (groups 3 and 4), one group treated with hydroalcoholic extract of red maca (group 5) and one group treated with finasteride (0.1 mg, group 6). Differences in the aqueous extract dependent on the length of time of boiling, whether for 2 or 3 hours, for groups 3 and 4 was assessed. Extracts of red maca contained 0.1 mg of benzylglucosinolate. Thereafter, a dose-response effect of different doses of benzylglucosinolates (0.02-0.08 mg) in red maca extracts was assessed. RESULTS: Prostate weight was similar in rats treated with freeze-dried aqueous extract of red maca prepared after 2 and 3 hours of boiling. Freeze-dried aqueous extract of red maca, hydroalcoholic extract of red maca and finasteride reduced prostate weight in rats with prostatic hyperplasia. No difference was observed between the data obtained from aqueous extract or hydroalcoholic extract of red maca. A dose dependent reduction of prostate weight was observed with the increase of the dose of benzylglucosinolates in red maca extracts. CONCLUSION: The present study showed that hydroalcoholic or aqueous extract of red maca containing 0.1 mg of benzylglucosinolate can reduce prostate size in male rats in which prostatic hyperplasia had been induced by TE.

The Influence of Maca (Lepidium meyenii) on Antioxidant Status, Lipid and Glucose Metabolism in Rat.Vecera R, Orolin J, Skottova N, Kazdova L, Oliyarnik O, Ulrichova J, Simanek V.
Institute of Pharmacology, Medical Faculty, Palacky University, Hnevotinska 3, 775 15, Olomouc, Czech Republic, firstname.lastname@example.org.
This work focused on the effect of maca on lipid, anti-oxidative, and glucose parameters in hereditary hypertriglyceridemic (HHTg) rat. Maca (1%) was administred to rats as a part of a high-sucrose diet (HSD) for 2 weeks. Rosiglitazone (0.02%) was used as a positive control. Maca significantly decreased the levels of VLDL (very low density lipoproteins), LDL (low density lipoproteins), and total cholesterol, and also the level of TAG (triacylglycerols) in the plasma, VLDL, and liver. Maca, as well as rosiglitazone, significantly improved glucose tolerance, as the decrease of AUC (area under the curve) of glucose showed, and lowered levels of glucose in blood. The activity of SOD (superoxide dismutase) in the liver, the GPX (glutathione peroxidase) in the blood, and the level of GSH (glutathione) in liver increased in all cases significantly. Results demonstrate that maca seems to be promising for a positive influence on chronic human diseases (characterized by atherogenous lipoprotein profile, aggravated

Effect of Black maca (Lepidium meyenii) on one spermatogenic cycle in rats.Gonzales GF, Nieto J, Rubio J, Gasco M.
Instituto de Investigaciones de la Altura, Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, Lima, Peru.
Lepidium meyenii (Maca) grows exclusively between 4000 and 4500 m above sea level in the Peruvian central Andes. The hypocotyls of this plant are traditionally used in the Andean region for their supposed fertility-enhancing properties. The hypocotyls have different colours. Of these, Black maca has better effects on spermatogenesis. The present study aimed to test the hypothesis that Black maca has early effects during a spermatogenic cycle (12 days) of male rats. For this, testicular spermatid, epididymal sperm and vas deferens sperm counts were measured after 1, 3, 5, 7 and 12 days of treatment with Black maca. Aqueous extract of Black maca was given orally by daily gavage at a dose of 2 g kg(-1). In a spermatogenic cycle, compared with day 1, daily sperm production (DSP) was lower at day 7 (control), whereas with Black maca, the difference was observed at day 12. Epididymal sperm count was higher in rats treated with Black maca at days 1, 3 and 7, but similar to controls at days 5 and 12; similarly sperm counts in vas deferens was higher in rats treated with Black maca in days 3, 5 and 7, but similar to controls at days 1 and 12. From this, it is suggested that first action of Black maca was at epididymal level increasing sperm count after 1 day of treatment, whereas an increase in sperm count was observed in vas deferens at day 3 of treatment. Finally, an increase in DSP was observed after 7 days of treatment with Black maca. Testicular testosterone was not affected after 7 days treatment with Black maca. In conclusion, Black maca affects sperm count as early as 1 day after beginning of treatment.

The in vitro biological activity of Lepidium meyenii extracts.Valentova K, Buckiova D, Kren V, Peknicova J, Ulrichova J, Simanek V.
Institute of Medical Chemistry and Biochemistry, Faculty of Medicine, Palacky University, Olomouc. email@example.com
The biological activity of methanolic and aqueous extracts from dehydrated hypocotyls of Lepidium meyenii (Brassicaceae, vernacular name “maca”), was studied on rat hepatocytes and human breast cancer MCF-7 cells. The extracts did not exhibit cytotoxicity in hepatocyte primary cultures up to 10 mg/ml as measured by the MTT viability test, and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) leakage. Moreover, after 72 h, extracts inhibited LDH and AST leakage from the hepatocytes. When hepatocytes were intoxicated by t-butyl hydroperoxide, neither extract prevented oxidative damage. Both extracts showed weak antioxidant activity in the DPPH radical scavenging test with IC(50) values of 3.46 +/- 0.16 and 0.71 +/- 0.10 mg/ml, for aqueous and methanolic extracts, respectively. Thus, the observed effect on spontaneous enzyme leakage is probably mediated through mechanisms other than antioxidant activity. Both methanolic and aqueous extracts have shown estrogenic activity comparable with that of silymarin in MCF-7 cell line. Maca estrogenicity was exhibited in the range from 100 to 200 mug of extract per ml. The findings in the present study show that maca does not display in vitro hepatotoxicity. In contrast, a slight cytoprotective effect, probably not mediated by antioxidant capacity, was noted. Maca extracts exhibited estrogenic activity comparably to the effect of silymarin in MCF-7 cells.

Effect of ethanol extract of Lepidium meyenii Walp. on osteoporosis in ovariectomized rat.Zhang Y, Yu L, Ao M, Jin W.
School of Life Science & Technology, Huazhong University of Science & Technology, 430074 Wuhan, PR China.
Maca (Lepidium meyenii Walp.) is a cruciferous plant from the Andes of Peru. The root of Maca is traditionally employed for its supposed properties in aphrodisiacs and improving fertility, it also has been widely used to help alleviate the symptoms of menopause. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of ethanol extract of Maca on postmenopausal osteoporosis in ovariectomized rats. Female Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into four groups: Sham-operated and ovariectomized groups were fed with equivolume of distilled water, and the remaining ovariectomized groups were orally administrated with ethanol extract of Maca at 0.096 and 0.24 g/kg for 28 weeks. The findings derived from the basis of bone mineral density, biomechanical, biochemical and histopathological parameters indicated that higher dose of ethanol extract of Maca was effective in the prevention of estrogen deficient bone loss.
