“GOT TESTOSTERONE?” – A book for men and the women who love them.

Got Testosterone? The recent book written by Dr. Kathy Maupin and Brett Newcomb, MA LPC, just garnered the prestigious First Place Award for Men’s Health by the Independent Press.  Got Testosterone? Explains how all-natural, bioidentical testosterone replacement therapy with long acting subcutaneous pellets can reverse the clock and help lessen the symptoms of age-related diseases such as, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, osteoporosis, obesity, high cholesterol among other health issues that occur with aging.

Conducted annually, the IPPY awards honor the year’s best independently published titles from around the world. According to IPPY officials, the award “rewards those who exhibit the courage, innovation, and creativity to bring about change in the world of publishing.”

Brett and I are so thankful to our writing mentor, Nancy Erickson (the Book Professor) for submitting our book for consideration for this award. We were so surprised when our book won first place for this coveted publishing award.

We want to encourage all men to read Got Testosterone? so they can become healthy, virile and satisfied with their health and their lives no matter how old they are.

I believe if healthcare would accept the fact that the majority of men NEED testosterone replacement after age 50, and that those men who receive Testosterone pellets will avoid the diseases of aging (Cardio-vascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, cancer autoimmune diseases, diseases of poor immunity that cause more frequent infections). Why does medicine in the US and Europe concentrate on “fixing” one symptom or disease at a time, and not attend to treating a patient globally by preventing disease,  and treating the whole patient?

How medical information is taught and transmitted to patients:

You learn about your condition and the treatment from your doctor, you doctor is guided by guidelines from his specialty’s governing group who certifies specialty physicians like ACOG who certifies OBGYNs , then doctors in that specialty learn new information from drug companies, conferences and journals from his or her specialty organization. When new research is done in multiple specialties and by many drug companies and research organizations, who puts it together across specialty lines? No one! There is no one to develop protocols, or new treatment plans that involve many specialty groups. That is what Brett and I accomplished with this book: we combined research from more than 5 specialties of medicine, as well as American and European medical research and translated it into easy to understand tables and graphs as well as bulleted points that are meant to make important information memorable to our readers.

In the medical world it is difficult to get practical truthful information about new medical treatments that is understandable to lay people. We  have translated complicated medical research and practical information about how vital testosterone is to men into entertaining and realistic advice. It is important for lay people to know the truth about who needs testosterone replacement, the most effective and safest way to take it, along with the risks and benefits of T replacement. We have found that bio-identical testosterone pellets are the best form of testosterone for men and women.

Our book, Got Testosterone? Men-Return to the Sexier, Stronger, Smarter You! is easy to find on-line in the Amazon bookstore, and it is available at Dr. Maupin’s office as well. Do yourself and the man in your life a favor and read it!

Please watch for the audio version of our book coming out soon.
