  • Is insomnia different between people who are and aren't on HRT?
  • Estrogen’s effect on the kynurenine pathway could be keeping you up at night.
  • What about men with high estrogen?
  • Over-the-counter supplements to lower SHBG and increased free testosterone?
  • Mycotoxins
  • Iodine, fatigue, and “detox” reactions.
  • Loss of libido and sexual sensation with the LEEP procedure: could progesterone and vitamin E help? What else?
  • Should I be on testosterone replacement therapy?
  • Supporting hormones with nutrition.

  1. Maybe a little too late to comment, but wanted to say, that the discussion was pretty interesting but about Iodine and mild fatigue I would like to hear more. I can advice Essaybomber.com

  2. Excellent discussion!
    Regarding “Iodine and mild fatigue and detox”, I tried to research this on the net and got very few hits and those were sketchy. There was one on a site selling iodine drops that said to increase the dosage slowly looking for when you feel bad / weird. Thinking from this angle, I would think that titrating iodine slowly might (increase every two to four weeks) might help with the fatigue issues by causing the bromine to slowly get replaced / eliminated.
    A question for Dr. Jones, do you have any good sources of information regarding this issue?
