Finally Sam wanted me to stress that you cannot underestimate the value of being physically and mentally healthy in order to get back on track if you have low SHBG. Early in his journey Sam used Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and listened to healing meditation tapes to reinforce the commitments and outcomes he was striving for. Furthermore, he didn t just accept what his doctors were telling him. He challenged them and did his own research and when necessary paid for his own testing to have the data needed to get proper treatments or refuse treatment from some overzealous doctors. TRT was also a crucial component to his well-being by giving him the energy, and confidence to get up at 5am and go to the gym almost daily, find additional time in the day for cardio, improve at work and raise a family.
Thank God we have short straight intestinal tracts, right? Wrong!! Nothing could be further than the truth. Our intestines are very long with many convolutions. We can pretend all we want, but we have the gut of an herbivore. Yes, we can eat some meat and all virtually all cultures on planet earth eat at least some animal foods, but dumping the typical low carb meal into our GI tract is simply fighting against Mother Nature. Your gut is cursing the darkness as this rancidifing, decomposing, lardy mass slowly scrapes its way through the many twists and turns of the small intestine. Many low carbers consume lots of heme iron, which is pro-inflammatory just to complete the package.
