interview Dr. Merrill Matschke of BetterLifeCarolinas.com and the TOTBible.com Science team Wednesday at 4PM PST Live on Youtube for the Ask Jay and Jim Show: Youtube.com/TRTRevolution
Lots of fascinating topics to discuss:
*The Endocrine Society's newest guidelines when prescribing TOT http://bit.ly/2FMPeL8
*The Male Birth Control Pill-Massive risks and low reward?
*The Health Problems caused by Low Sperm Count/Testosterone deficiency
*The Newest data on Low Calorie Sweeteners.
Even though it’s very apparent that humanity is under a tremendous threat to our health, there's no action plan for solving this problem or urgency in studies. Why is the sick care model failing us? What are the latest studies telling us? What are some food choices and unhealthy behaviors that are putting us at great risk of metabolic syndrome? On this episode, Dr. Merrill Matschke is back to share his thoughts on these issues.
"Once you're in the funnel, you’re trapped unless you take hard measures to get out and change your life-- and that’s on you." -Jim Brown
- It’s important to look for those early inflammatory markers so people can be treated before they present symptoms.
- If someone is obese, has metabolic syndrome, and/or has a vascular disease, they are also going to have issues with fertility and testicular function.
- Low calorie nutritive sweetener is going to drive you to diabetes. It’s 300 times sweeter than sugar. Our genes can’t handle a synthetic sweetener made in a lab
- How we live our lives can turn certain genes on and off. If you know this ahead of time, you can avoid certain medications and change your diet so that you don’t activate that genetic pathway.
At the start of the show, Dr. Merrill shares on transitioning to a new city and practice. Next, we talked about how much time the average doctor has to put towards research when they are so busy treating a revolving door of patients. We also discussed epigenetics, the problems with low-calorie sweetener, and why it’s so important to eat whole food over the processed stuff.
We also discussed:
- Why it’s important to track early markers of metabolic syndrome
- The importance of estrogen
- The connection between male birth control and low testosterone
A lot of doctors are missing the opportunities to improve the health of men, and this is something we can fix. We can’t underestimate the interconnectedness of a lot of health issues. A person with low sperm count is 12 times more likely to have low Testosterone. If a patient has low Testosterone, they’re twice as likely to have metabolic syndrome. If you have metabolic syndrome you’re 5 times more likely to have diabetes which puts you at risk of heart attack or stroke. A lot of clinicians have no experience to help them understand these effects, so it’s up to you to educate yourself and be mindful of the causes.

Patients taking Viagra are less likely to suffer a heart attack, new research claims.
Men taking the impotence drug were found to have a lower risk of having a heart attack or dying from heart failure than those not on the medication.
The findings mean Viagra could soon be used to treat hundreds of thousands of heart failure patients and even prevent fatal heart attacks, scientists say.
Experts from the University of Manchester studied 6,000 diabetic patients who had been given Viagra to treat erectile dysfunction.
The drug relaxes muscle cells in the blood vessels supplying the penis, allowing more blood to flow there.
This increased blood flow increases the likelihood of getting an erection.
Given the increasing reports of deaths in which the use of Viagra may be implicated, clinicians need to exercise caution when advising their patients with heart
Experts believe a key ingredient in Viagra called PDE5i, which relaxes blood vessels, also prevents damage to heart cells.
Heart failure is caused by the heart failing to pump enough blood around the body at the right pressure.
It most often occurs because the heart muscle has become too weak or stiff to work properly and is usually treated with medication which supports the heart.
Despite diabetics being prone to heart problems, the study participants did not suffer as many incidents as similar patients not on the drug.
