Dr. Charles Mok Releases 'Testosterone: Strong Enough for a Man, Made for a Woman'
NEW YORK, April 10, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ Physician and business leader Dr. Charles Mok today announced the publication of Testosterone: Strong Enough for a Man, Made for a Woman (available now). The book is published with ForbesBooks, the exclusive business book publishing imprint of Forbes Media.
In the book, Dr. Mok, who has persistently followed the research on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and its health benefits for 30 years, confronts medical professionals for their slow integration of testosterone into HRT. With support from a wealth of peer-reviewed studies, he shows how testosterone therapy can help women facing menopause maintain their weight, increase their sexuality, and reduce the health risks associated with aging.
In his new book, Dr. Mok describes the dramatic transformation HRT has undergone in the past several decades. For years, synthetic hormones were widely prescribed to treat women in the United States experiencing menopause. HRT clinical trials in the early 2000s called the practice into question after observing an increase in health risks in women taking synthetic hormones. Those safety concerns, Dr. Mok argues, were valid, but misleading. Today's treatment protocolsusing natural hormones such as testosteroneare entirely different.
"Clinical studies show that testosterone therapy reduces the risk of breast cancer by 50 to 75 percent and relieves virtually all symptoms of menopause with no adverse effects," said Dr. Mok. "The benefits of implementing testosterone into hormone replacement therapy are virtually unprecedented, and yet the larger medical community continues to ignore the facts."
The book Testosterone: Strong Enough for a Man, Made for a Woman is now available for purchase on Amazon.com.
