Have You Heard of The ‘Gelding Effect’?

Have You Heard of The ‘Gelding Effect’?

I learned about it when I spoke to an expert in microbiology and the microbiome.

As a chiropractor in Tustin, I asked him a question about a phenomena that occurred with a few patients in my practice.  I was curious if he had seen any male patients had improved signs of testosterone (their ability to get an erection, increased energy, etc…).

He answered quickly “Oh yeah, that’s the ‘Gelding Effect’.” (A gelding is a male horse that has been castrated).

He went on to explain…

Tustin Chiropractor Explains the Gelding Effect

The Gelding Effect is a situation where a male has a leaky gut, this causes the leakage of endotoxins into his blood.

Endotoxins are highly inflammatory particles produced in our digestive tract. That’s where they are supposed to stay.

They are not supposed to get into our blood at all.  If or when they do get into our blood, they cause damage and inflammation.  And in the case of the Gelding Effect, they cause inflammation of the testes.

This is not painful, it is silent inflammation.

The inflamed testicles fail to produce testosterone as they should.  This causes a sort of chemical castration.

No or low testosterone can create undesirable symptoms:

  • Low sex drive
  • Irritability
  • Reduced muscle mass
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Depression
  • Fatigue

Many of these symptoms can come on gradually making one think he is just “growing older”.

In this situation, all you need to do is fix his leaky gut.

A high quality probiotic has been shown to do that in a recent study.

In fact I have seen several cases where there was noticeable improvement in low testosterone symptoms simply by taking MegaSporebiotic.

In conclusion, if one has any signs of chronic inflammation happening in their body, besides improving diet, one could easily take a probiotic that has been shown to heal the gut lining (and healing the lining shuts the door on endotoxins getting into the body and causing inflammation).
