What if there were a book club for natural medicine...
Announcing the newest feature of Dr. Stillman Uncensored
You may have noticed that I took a month off from publishing a newsletter. In early April, I decided to resign from my position with Dr. Beck. I wish Dr. Beck and his staff a very fond and collegial farewell. I anticipate opening my new practice in Southwest Florida, somewhere between Naples and Tampa. This will depend upon where I find a good space to see patients in person.
Last month, I launched a paid version of this Substack. The reason was simple. I realized that I could not afford to confront both medical tyranny and corruption within the medical profession. I started to get canceled from podcast appearances and that has had a real impact on my ability to reach people with my message. I have decided that fighting medical tyranny is something I must do publicly. Fighting corrupt medical practices is something that I will now be doing behind the paywall of this Substack.
This month, I’ve decided to add a monthly book club to my Substack. Why? Einstein said, “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.” I feel this way about my work, and so I always find myself reading new books on the topic. Rather than just read them and then put them on a shelf somewhere, I’ve decided it would be better to share my thoughts on these books with you as I read them.
Each book club meeting will be a free, public webinar, streamed to YouTube and Facebook. Mark your calendars for May 25, 7 PM Eastern Time, and tune into the livestream on either platform. There will be a private Zoom call at 8 PM for paid subscribers to this Substack, during which I will answer their questions directly. Access to a recording of that Zoom call will be available to paid subscribers as well.
The first book we are going to read is, “Testosterone for Life,” by Abraham Morgentaler, MD. Morgentaler is a professor at Harvard Medical School and probably the world’s leading expert on testosterone therapy.
Why are we going to be talking about testosterone? Because it’s vitally important to not only men, but women as well. It is one of the hormones that keeps us strong, robust, and healthy. And because virtually all men develop low testosterone levels at some point in their lives. As many as thirty percent of men between the ages of 50 and 60 have low testosterone. Contrary to popular belief, many women also have low levels of testosterone.
This also isn’t just about sex. Testosterone has earned itself a “bad boy” reputation, but the reality is that it does far more than raise libido. Low testosterone levels correlated strongly with a positive test result for COVID-19 and for worse outcomes in hospitalized patients. Testosterone is well known to combat metabolic diseases, and is commonly used to help with weight loss. Many doctors use it to treat their diabetic patients, to improve their glucose and insulin homeostasis. Testosterone is also helpful in cases of osteoporosis.
There are many caveats to these statements. Much ink has been spilled on the topic of testosterone, and this month we are going to discuss the fundamentals as covered in Morgentaler’s important book on this topic.
In other news, I have published four videos this month for paid subscribers. I encourage you to take a look and consider subscribing. After all, subscriptions go toward the treatment of injured first-responders or veterans, or those injured by pharmaceutical products. Thankfully, I have enough money in the bank to take on a case charitably. If you or someone you know fits the above description, you or they can apply for a consultation via my website.
Here are last month’s videos:
