AAS (Anabolic androgenic steroids) exogenous testosterone and its use

I’ve been asking myself the six questions, you know:  Who, what when where how and why. I read that doctors in Italy are studying the pathophysiological mechanism of synthetic testosterone. In other words, they are trying to determine the pathos (the Greek word for tragedy and disease) of the drug and how the brain (physiology) works on the body and how psychologically it affects the behavior of every single human being who uses it. Not everyone becomes so badly affected, if in fact there is a pathological reason for syntheticRead More


Therapist are seeing Testosterone related issues in their practices….

The Risks of taking Testosterone by Arnold R. Lopez, LCSW I’ve been a marriage therapist for 37 years and have a strong sense of the common pitfalls within marriages.  From codependency issues, substance abuse, sexual abuse issues and more. About 5 years ago I started to see something in my practice I hadn’t seen before.  More and more individuals and couples I was working with were using testosterone replacement therapy. This started to create problems in their relationships from rage, hypersexual disorder, extra martial affairs and more. It has become very fashionable for peopleRead More


“Be the change you wish to see in the world” Gandhi

This week the US Surgeon General,Vivek H. Murthy, M.D., M.B.A.made the headlines when he launched a movement to end the Opioid crisis. He sent a letter to the 2.3 million American physicians requesting their help to end this crisis through the Turn The Tide Rx Movement: http://turnthetiderx.org/ Over the past two years, I’ve had thousands of people visit my website www.testosteroneaddiction.com searching for education, understanding and research regarding testosterone replacement therapy.

Testosterone-Sandy’s Story

Testosterone

When the concept of Testosterone Addiction was introduced to  group therapists and behavioral health professionals there was an overwhelming response. Three therapists, who have patients addicted to steroids in the form of testosterone, said their patients’ lives had become a shambles.  During the past year and a half I have spoken with thousands of people, some who have told me about a spouse who uses testosterone and how it has negatively affected their relationships. One said, “My husband started taking testosterone and he became an angry, aggressive sex driven person,”Read More


She wanted me to tell her story…

Last week on my drive to the office, my mind was all over the place. “Lisa, why are you doing this testosterone addiction recovery advocacy? Just let it go, what is the purpose,  what am I thinking, who do I think I am.” Then just like that, I get a private message in one of my Facebook forums, titled. “I went to Dr. Kathy Maupin and I became a Sex addict.” Dr. Maupin is the author of The Secret Female Hormone How Testosterone Replacement Can Change Your Life.  I lookedRead More


Look at that Face

Look at that face! That’s what Donald Trump said about his rival Carly Fiorina in his campaign for President. While he uses his mouth like boxing gloves and his speech is generally aggressive, Carly Fiorina remains calm in the wake of insults and criticism. Is their behavior a difference in gender? Martian men, Venusian women. No. It’s their personalities. But I want to warn what happens when personalities change and those changes are caused by overdosing on testosterone replacement therapy. And you can see it their faces. Today’s buzzword forRead More


Testosterone Overdosing

This past year has been a life changing, profound experience.  I walked the plank. I put myself out there. I became vulnerable to my core by sharing my story with testosterone replacement therapy and creating an advocacy that did not exist. It has humbled me, challenged me and empowered me.   Now, a year later, I know I need to continue this journey even more so. In the past two weeks I have met two women both who have been overdosing on testosterone and one of my friends who sharedRead More
