HTPA and fasting

Fast Doctor,

What are your thoughts on restoring the Hypothalamic Pituitary Testicular Axis (HPTA) and/or raising testosterone levels if they are low? Have you seen this done via fasting?

Dear dBoxing, in our age the greatest influence on the axis is
1. The (synthetic) Estrogens in our food chain (These are used to make animals grow faster in order to be more profitable) and
2. Lack of exercise.

Thus in some studies human sperm count has more than halved during the 20th century...

To be honest with you I have not documented a reversal by fasting but I have not specifically tested for that. Theoretically, since several of our stimulant hormones such as Growth Hormone increases during fasting, this should counteract the feminizing effects of our diet. But this is not a very powerful mechanism on its own. The detoxification, not eating animals (due to the estrogens inter alia) and other related factors would likely contribute more to preventing drops in Testosterone.
