According to the ancient wisdom if a man gives up or withdraws from life due to a number of possible reasons such as he is not content, he may be overwhelmed with life, he lacks true love in his life, he feels empty or unfulfilled, etc, etc, this withdrawal will then cause low life-force (low kidney energy causing adrenal fatigue) which then in turn causes a vascular contraction. Both low life force and vascular contraction stagnate the testes causing a decrease in testosterone production. Low testosterone is therefore a marker or indicator to the man that he has been living in long term withdrawal or has given up on life. If only he would listen to what his body is trying to tell him! If this is the case he really needs to address his lack of commitment to life or stay stuck in the misery of it which will eventually cause more severe illness and eventually a premature death.
In addition as men age they move from a period in their lives of being “the provider” into a period of their lives where they should further deepen their connection to the femaleness that naturally resides within. This is the natural cycle of life. The femaleness is simply the tenderness and gentleness that naturally lives within all men but rarely expressed in fear of social perceptions of “not being a real man”. The hardness in which men live becomes a fortress of protection that they hold onto and defend until the end unwilling to connect to their tenderness and gentleness out of fear it may be seen as weak or pathetic – which is certainly not the case. In response to this resistance estrogen (female hormone) levels begin to increase in attempt to “encourage” the man to connect to the femaleness. Again this is an indicator from the body that you are resisting this process. The more the resistance to this process the higher the estrogen levels will rise in an attempt to counter the resistance. Therefore what are your estrogen levels telling you about the way in which you live and resist the gentleness and tenderness that naturally lives within us all?
Research indicates prostate problems may be due to an imbalance between testosterone and estrogen where estrogen dominates. It is not the high estrogens themselves that cause prostate problems but the resistance to the femaleness which is the cause! Remember according to the ancient wisdom and proven by Einstein “Everything is Energy” and therefore everything is because of energy and thus the energy behind the physical always comes first as it is the underlying cause of everything.
Finally as mentioned above if you have low testosterone levels you must first suffer from low life force or low kidney energy which expresses itself physically as low adrenal function. Every time you give your power away you drain your kidney energy or life force. Whenever you say yes to someone or something to please another when in fact you truly do not feel to do it you are giving your power away to another and draining your kidney energy. Not only do you give your power away to others but also to ideals and beliefs that society imposes on us from birth which prevents us from living from our own true inner impulse. Much could be written here about this but to serve as an example the following is offered. Men give their power away to ideals and beliefs. They behave in a way society tells them what it is to be a “good” father, a “good” provider, etc often at their own expense like spending too long at work . Not being allowed to display any signs of vulnerability or fragility because that is “not how men are supposed to act” when in fact many men are hurting and very fragile inside but put on a brave tough mask to hide behind. There are many such ideals and beliefs which rule everyones lives that we give our power away to and thus create our own adrenal fatigue. You need to look at all areas in your own life where you may be giving your power away to a belief or ideal which do not truly feel right for you. Self honesty is very important to this process as we all are very good at avoiding honesty in order to remain in the comfort of our patterns as they are so familiar to us.
As you can see your hormone levels can tell you much about the way you live and the changes you need to make. It is one way your body communicates with you – are you willing to listen to what it has to say?
