If you are looking for a different alternative to taking testosterone, or want to try transitioning differently before having hormone treatment, there is the option to naturally transition. This is achieved by a combination of weight training, healthy eating and supplements, which will get your body to produce more of it’s own testosterone naturally. The changes are not as quick as having the injection, they will take longer, how long will be down to the individual and their genetics. Make sure you see your Gp before you start so you don’t have any underlying health issues that could prevent you from transitioning this way and that you continue to see them so they can monitor you.
‘Natural transitioning: An Ftm Alternative’ was founded by Tristan and Sicily Skye, who used the knowledge of bodybuilding and years of research into which supplements would help boost testosterone levels. There was a lot of trial and error till they managed to get the right combination of exercise, diet and supplements. He transitioned naturally for a few years before switching to testosterone. For natural transition to work it would take a lot of hard work and commitment.
There is a lot of confusion as to how effective this process is, some say it doesn’t work, others say that taking so many supplements can’t be healthy for the body. If you wish to try it this way, I recommend that you do your research on the supplements, the exercises that you will need to do and what type of diet is needed.
If you join TQnation there will be a section on natural transitioning, which will break down for you what exercises you need to do, what type of foods you can eat and how to take the supplements. You can also follow Tristan on youtube.
