I wanted to take a minute to reinvite you to the FREE presentation I am giving this coming Wednesday, July 31: “Andropause, not Just a Problem for Old Men”If you’ve never heard of “Andropause,” it’s another name for “male menopause,” which is really a misnomer, so I prefer to use the medical term “Andorpause.”As men age, they don’t go through the abrupt hormonal changes that women do (hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings). Instead, they experience a slower delcine in sex hormones that can turn them into forgetful, lethargic, disinterested people. In dramatic cases, men transform from being adventurers who think about sex every 30 seconds into couch potatoes whose libido has been misplaced along with their car keys.Sadder still, when male hormones delcine, men frequently lose their spark, their passion for life. They wake up one day, and they’re just not themselves anymore.
Fortunately, men have several good options when it comes to restoring their hormone levels. That’s why I am so enthusiastic about this talk.
So please come join me at the Boulder Creek Room in the main branch of the Boulder Public Library(1001 Arapahoe Ave.) on Wednesday, July 31 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.
Admission is free, and everyone is welcome. Please join us.
P.S. Obviously, if you live outside the Denver Metro area, I don’t expect you to attend; however, we will have a video of the presentation up on our websites Choices in Health and Great Alchemy — so look for it soon.

Andropause: What is it and why does it matter?
By Dr. Emilia Ripoll, M.D.
“Testosterone is more than a ‘male sex hormone.’ It is an important contributor to the robust metabolic functioning of multiple bodily systems.”
— Dr. Jerald Bain M.D., endocrinologist
If you watch television, you’ve undoubtedly seen one of those Viagra commercials that show men doing manly things that usually involve classic cars or large pickup trucks. The overtly masculine voice-over informs us, “This is the age of taking action.”
Even though I think those ads are silly, I agree with their message, but not because I think every man with a little gray in his beard should be taking Viagra. If you’ve reached a “certain age,” you do have more wisdom and experience to fix what isn’t working in your life — or at least you know where to go to ask the right questions.
