In this episode of the Boss Body Podcast, Dr. Tim Jackson talks to Dr. Jerry Bailey about the “P.H.A.T.” syndrome, which is a hormone imbalance in men. They discuss various factors that can affect men’s hormones, including inflammation, thyroid issues, and insulin resistance. The speakers emphasize the importance of taking a holistic approach to hormone health and addressing the underlying causes of imbalances rather than just treating symptoms. They also discuss various therapies, including Ethylene Blue and Methylene Blue, and the benefits of physical activity for brain health. Dr. Bailey shares insights on his clinic’s three-step process of food, movement, and mentoring as medicine.
Men’s Hormones and the PHAT Syndrome
The doctors discuss the complexity of hormone imbalances and the importance of looking at the whole picture, including blood sugar, cortisol, thyroid, and inflammation. They introduce the PHAT syndrome, which stands for “Poly Hormonal Adrenal Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome.”
Inflammation and Aromatase Enzyme
The doctors discuss the causes of inflammation, including leaky gut, and how it upregulates the aromatase enzyme, leading to the conversion of testosterone to estrogen. They emphasize the importance of running simple tests to identify inflammation and its source.
