Get Into the Hormone Health Zone

KENNETH: If you say something
long enough for it to get in your heart, it will control
your life. Good or bad. (Singing) I know my God
has made the way for me. I know my God has
made the way for me. ANNOUNCER: Join Kenneth
Copeland today on the Believer’s Voice of Victory, as
he welcomes Dr. Don and Mary Colbert for a live
discussion on how to get into the hormone
health zone. Maintain health, energy, and
vitality for a better life. KENNETH: Hello, everybody.
I’m Kenneth Copeland. Welcome to the Believer’s Voice
of Victory network broadcast program. What do you want? We
got it. Praise God. Father, we thank you today in the name of
the Lord Jesus Christ. We give you praise and we give you
honor. Thank you, sir, for sending Dr. and Mary Colbert to
us today, and throughout this entire week, and all the next
week. We’re going to enjoy their presence and the Spirit of God
as He moves through them to the people. We thank you and we
praise and we give you all the praise and the honor. In Jesus’
name, Amen. Bless you two, glory to- DR.DON: Praise God. KENNETH:
These people don’t need any introduction, do they? I mean,
they’ve been on this broadcast so many times before. DR.DON:
Amen. KENNETH: It’s so good to have you both back. MARY
COLBERT: Thanks for having us. DR.DON: It’s great to be here.
Thank you. MARY COLBERT: what’d you do? KENNETH: How old is
Kyle? DR.DON: Kyle is 35 now. KENNETH: Okay. Now their son is-
DR.DON: Just turned 35, couple of weeks ago. KENNETH: Just
turned 35. And I’m using this as a marker, okay? I held little
Kyle like this. DR.DON: As a newborn. KENNETH: Yeah, and held
him up, and blessed him, and held him up. And he’s 35 years
old. DR.DON: That’s right. KENNETH: You know what I’m
saying? So, what I’m saying is we’ve been together a long time.
DR.DON: Oh, man. Praise God. MARY COLBERT: And you married
him. He and his wife. KENNETH: Yeah, sure did. MARY COLBERT:
And now three kids later. KENNETH: And now, three kids
later. DR.DON: Eleven years ago. MARY COLBERT: Eleven years ago.
KENNETH: Amen. And I’m telling you, you talk about three little
firecracker kids, they’ve got it. It’s amazing. Praise God.
DR.DON: Praise God. KENNETH: There’s two basic scriptures
that the Lord has pointed out to me in praying over these
broadcasts, and into our … Everything we do, we must see it
through the eyes of the Lord. Because if we don’t, we’re no
different from the world. They’re looking for a truth.
We’ve got The Truth. DR.DON: Amen. MARY COLBERT: Amen.
KENNETH: And if we start there, you start with the answer and
then … DR.DON: That’s right. KENNETH: And then you let the
Lord reveal things to you. DR.DON: That’s true. KENNETH:
Now, two places. One was in the fifth chapter of Mark when the
woman with the issue of blood … Now, Jesus did not heal her.
This is very, very, very, very important. I want you to listen.
And you know the story. She had an issue with blood for 12
years, spent all she had, and nothing better [inaudible], she
heard of Jesus, came in to press behind, and touched His garment.
“For she said, ‘If I may touch but His clothes, I shall be
whole.’ Straightaway the fountain of her blood was dried
up and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
Jesus immediately, knowing in Himself that power had gone out
of Him-” See, He really didn’t have anything to do with that.
He was headed to Jairus’ House. DR.DON: Right. KENNETH: Now,
this is the verse, the 34th verse. “Daughter, thy faith hath
made thee whole. Go in peace and be whole of that plague.”
DR.DON: Amen. KENNETH: Amen. Now, she was not whole
physically. She was not whole financially. She put everything
she had on that dreaded disease. DR.DON: She did. KENNETH: Now,
we go over to 2 Thessalonians. The fifth chapter. Or, 1
Thessalonians 5:23. “And the very God of Peace-” You can’t
have peace when you’re not whole in your body. DR.DON: Amen.
KENNETH: “The very God of Peace sanctify you wholly,” All one
piece. “And I pray God your whole Spirit, your whole soul,”
or your intellect, “and your whole body be preserved
blameless under the Covenant of the Lord Jesus.” And the thing
that has always, always thrilled me about Dr. Colbert’s practice
is to see people made whole. Most people … I’m talking
about Christian people, most of God’s People think being whole
is just getting healed. No, no. In fact, if you don’t get the
thinking right, and surely if you don’t get the spiritual part
of it right, being whole is almost impossible. DR.DON:
That’s true. KENNETH: So, that’s what we’re after, is the
wholeness of God’s People. Praise God. And I am here to
testify today a major, major piece of that wholeness is
obedience to God. Because this man has worked on me and with me
for a long time, especially since 2004, but God instructed
me and told me years and years ago. And I had the diet part of
it right for a long, long time. I haven’t …. I just haven’t
violated that in years. DR.DON: Right. KENNETH: Years and years
and years and years and years. But the exercise part, I was
just too stubborn to do. Just disobedient. But when that piece
was put into place, I was shocked at this whole system and
how it worked. DR.DON: That’s true. KENNETH: Now, I wanna plug
this in here and then I’m gonna hush and turn it over to you. If
you say something long enough for it to get in your heart,
it’ll control your life. Good or bad. Now, I was discussing this
with Mary earlier this morning. I’m totally convinced, going
back and thinking all the way back, my childhood, junior high
school, high school, being an athlete and all that. I’m
convinced that my testosterone level never was where it should
be, because I just fought fat all the time. And on game days
… Or when it came, particularly in football
practice …. When it came time for football practice, oh, I’ll
tell you, I’d push, and push, and push, and did it anyway, but
on game days, I didn’t wanna move. So that I’d have energy
and strength enough to get through the game, to have enough
to just push it through it because I didn’t know about it.
I’d do it anyway. But that was so hard on me. And to exercise,
even after I got up and got into ministry and all of that, doing
my very best to be obedient to God, I’d try to exercise, I’d
get on a treadmill for a little while and just kinda get sick.
And I just flat wasn’t gonna do it. DR.DON: You know what? We
find that so many people just like you, even at young ages,
have suboptimal thyroid and suboptimal testosterone. And we
now know that when we raise and optimize this testosterone
level, it turns the adrenal glands on and supports the
adrenals which help to give us energy, as well as testosterone
gives us energy, as well as thyroid gives us energy.
KENNETH: Lemme tell you what happened to me. I mean … And I
said it so many times, “Man, I hate this. I just can’t stand to
do this.” Well, not all that long ago, I finally came to that
place. I said, “I gotta be obedient about this. Everything
else is in place.” DR.DON: Right. KENNETH: And I have the
Genesis 6:3 mandate before me and the Lord asked me to go for
the 120. And so, I walked in that weight room feeling good
about all this because I got my commitment made and everything.
And I grabbed ahold of that thing. It came out my mouth,
Doc, before I could stop it. I said, “God, I hate this!”
DR.DON: Oo. You cursed it. KENNETH: Aw, man. See, I’d said
it, and said it, and said it, and said it. It was controlling
my life. DR.DON: Amen. KENNETH: Now, when you take the spiritual
side of it, I’m convinced that’s controlling the testosterone
level and just killing it. DR.DON: It is. KENNETH: It was
in my heart and it just infected my whole life, and I repent of
this. Oh God, forgive me. I love this. I love you. And I love
this in the Name of Jesus. I physically felt that thing leave
my body. DR.DON: Praise God. Amen. KENNETH: I physically felt
it leave. And I was free, and I can’t hardly wait to get in
there. I mean, I work out hard four days a week and I’ve got
the best trainer. And my diet is in place. And I want you to know
… Really, man. You’ve known me all these years, and the Battle
of the Bulge has always been, you know … DR.DON: Right. But
it’s won. You won. KENNETH: I win it! Yeah. I went, just in a
few weeks, 15% body fat, which has been my goal- DR.DON: Amen.
KENNETH: … For years and years- DR.DON: That’s right,
sure. KENNETH: … And years. DR.DON: Right. KENNETH: And it
just … The supernatural kicked in. DR.DON: Absolutely. And
you’ve combined it. It’s the body, the mind, and spirit, but
you lined your body up with your spirit and your mind. You got
them, all three, aligned properly and then, boom, you
were reset, reset. KENNETH: Wholeness. DR.DON: Yes. Amen.
KENNETH: I’m not just healed. DR.DON: Right. KENNETH: I’m not
just pain free. DR.DON: Right. MARY COLBERT: Isn’t that
wonderful? KENNETH: But made whole. MARY COLBERT: You’re 120
DR.DON: Amen, so you are set on 120, but what’s happened in this
world now … So many Christians are stuck, especially when they
reach that age of 50. All of a sudden … Or 45. Hormone levels
start to go down. And the hormone levels that go down in
men, especially, is testosterone, but also in women.
But it starts 10 years younger in women, around age 40. Your
testosterone goes down. And women, generally speaking, when
they’re young, have more testosterone than any other
hormone. But when your testosterone level goes down, so
does your energy, so does your vitality, so does your muscle
mass and bone mass, and brain, thinking ability, clear
thinking. Because Testosterone energizes the brain. What it
does, it helps to repair brain cells. It decreases inflammation
in the brain, it increases blood flow in the brain. It increases
neurotransmitter production in the brain, it helps to get rid
of depression by boosting dopamine, serotonin,
norepinephrine. And it also decreases insulin resistance,
one of the main causes of Alzheimer’s. So, look at what we
have when we start to restore this powerful hormone. And I
tell my patients nowadays, “Nutrition is great, diet is
wonderful, exercise is wonderful,” but the hormones, I
find, the bioidenticals, not the manmade hormones, the
bioidentical hormones are one of the most important things you
can do to restore your health and turn off disease. And I tell
people it’s like flipping on breaker switches so your body
says, “Yes, thank you!” Now my body’s programed for strength
and vitality and energy. And so, that’s what’s so exciting. I
tell couples now … I see so many couples that come in and
their marriage is on the rocks, they have no energy, they’re
depressed, they’re tired, they’re trying to get ahead in
life and they’re just burdened with all the stresses of this
world. And I tell them, first of all, because so many come in on
the verge of divorce, “Don’t get divorced until we get your
hormones checked, balanced, but even better, optimized.” ‘Cause
once we hit that optimal level of a 20 to 25 year old, it’s
like the body is reprogrammed for youth, your youth is being
renewed like the eagles. MARY COLBERT: One thing I think is
really important for the people to know, this blew my mind when
I read this. This is a medical statistical fact. You know when
you go to get your labs done? They show the normal ranges of
what should be a normal range from low to high. In 1950, a
man’s- DR.DON: It was 1940’s. 1940’s. MARY COLBERT: 1940’s, a
man’s high … Considered high level of testosterone- DR.DON:
No, high-normal. High-normal. MARY COLBERT: High-normal was
20- DR.DON: 500. MARY COLBERT: … 2500. Today, in 2019, they
have reduced it so fast and brought it down to quick because
of what’s happening to the men’s testosterone levels in America
and around the world. The high level today is 900-and
something. DR.DON: 916. Back a few years ago it was up at 1200,
but they keep lowering it because the endocrinologists get
together and they look at all the norms and all the
testosterone levels, and since testosterone levels are dropping
in men, 20% drop in less than 20 years, and the sperm count has
dropped 50% in less than 40 years. So, because of these new
norms, they’ve dropped the level down. 264 to 916 is normal. But
can I tell you what’s happened? What’s happening is now our men
are having less testosterone, they’re not being treated, and
when your level is that of 264, you feel horrible. And to get
the cardioprotective effects where it strengthens the heart,
it dilates the blood vessels, you need at least 550 minimum,
but to feel really good you usually need 750 to 1,000, I
tell most men. Sometimes a little higher, 1100 or even
1200, but 1200 back just a few years ago was high-normal. So
now, the levels have dropped. And why have they dropped?
KENNETH: That is one- DR.DON: Why have they dropped? It’s real
simple. You follow the chemicals. We’re exposed to so
many chemicals. We call them endocrine disruptors. These are
chemicals, manmade chemicals, which are tens of thousands in
this country. And unfortunately, the vast majority are estrogen
disrupters, they increase estrogen in your body. So our
men are becoming feminized because of all the estrogens
we’re taking, like bisphenol A. 75%, approximately, of all
canned goods are lined with bisphenol A. It’s a chemical
that’s a type of plasticizer that increases estrogen in your
body, makes you become more estrogenized, and causes
deceased libido, man breasts. It causes- MARY COLBERT: And men
wanna watch Lifetime TV. DR.DON: … Fertility problems. But
again, that’s bisphenol A. And even in the credit card
receipts. Now, if your hands are oily or moist and you take that
credit card receipt, you absorb that bisphenol A from that
credit card receipt and your skin and you become more
estrogenized. Now, when women get more estrogenized, they have
more female problems. They have, usually, more fertility
problems, but there’s so many different ones I discuss in the
book like atrazine. Atrazine is a chemical that’s found mainly
in our tap water. That’s why anyone that drinks a lot of tap
water, they’re getting atrazine. Now, atrazine is similar to
glyphosate. You know what RoundUp is or glyphosate? It’s a
weed killer. But atrazine is one of the most common chemicals
that’s in tap water. And what it does, it induces feminization in
marine life. In other words, it causes male frogs to become
female frogs, but it also does it in the fish, in the turtles,
in the alligators, and in the frogs. MARY COLBERT: This
conference we went to with the medical professions down in
Miami, there was almost 1,000 medical doctors and they were up
giving these medical facts and studies in front of the room.
This man stood up there, Brother Copeland, and he said, “We are
concerned that if, in 20 years, the human population will be
able to reproduce.” DR.DON: Because of diminishing sperm
counts. And these endocrine disrupters are causing men’s
sperm counts to decrease by already 50% in less than 40
years. Now can you imagine in another 40 years, if its another
50% we’re in trouble of maintaining ability for
fertility in men to get their wives pregnant. KENNETH: If it
was left just purely on a natural level, the devil would
wipe it out. DR.DON: Absolutely. And that’s his goal is to wipe
it out. MARY COLBERT: It is. KENNETH: It’s just wipe it out.
MARY COLBERT: That’s what’s going on. DR.DON: Absolutely.
KENNETH: And without … Oh, man. Without the influence of
the Spirit of God, not just in Christian people, but in the
whole planet, it’d just wipe it out. MARY COLBERT: Yeah. DR.DON:
Right. KENNETH: But thank God we can do something about it.
DR.DON: Absolutely. MARY COLBERT: That’s exactly right.
KENNETH: And we can do something about it in the Christian
community, and that’s … That makes our witness even that much
greater. DR.DON: Right, sure. KENNETH: And the affect of it
that much greater in our own health and testimony. There are
people, I’ll tell you, the people that we talk to and the
people that we see, the people in our meetings and so-forth, so
hungry for answers. DR.DON: Amen. Amen. KENNETH: If it
hadn’t been for the absolute mandate of God on Gloria and my
life, man, I woulda quit. It was so tough, physically. DR.DON:
It’s tiring. KENNETH: I oughta just quit. DR.DON: Sure.
KENNETH: But by just continuing to walk my
faith and believe God for His wisdom and
stand on the Word, and then God raises up people
like this to minister to us. I remember in 2004, we were down
there in their place in Florida. And we were just standing there
in the kitchen, and I heard the Lord say this so clear and
plain. It was almost audible. It’s just so authoritative. He
said, “Don Colbert is a apostle of healing.” MARY COLBERT:
That’s right. KENNETH: And I said, “Say that again?” He said,
“He is an apostle of healing.” Well, see, in my mind, I had the
medical doctor over here and I had the preachers over here. And
of course, the Lord knew what I was thinking, struggling with.
He said, “Kenneth …” He said, “Don’t you think it’s a good
thing when I call a man to be an apostle of healing, to send him
to school?” I said, “Yeah, now that idea … Yeah! That just
makes a lot of sense to me.” You have no idea how much this man’s
been to school. DR.DON: Amen. KENNETH: There’s a lot of things
that … Man, he made a lot of other doctors mad and upset and
everything else, but- MARY COLBERT: He still is. KENNETH:
Man, I mean, he studied Chinese medicine, he studied all these
different areas and levels of … And he studied chiropractic
and nutrition. MARY COLBERT: God gave him such an incredible
thirst to know because healing is this giant tree. DR.DON:
Amen. MARY COLBERT: It’s like a giant oak tree. And if you
eliminate one of the limbs of God’s ability, it’s one way God
heals. And if you cut one of those limbs off, then you have
just minimized- KENNETH: There’s serious trouble. MARY COLBERT:
Serious trouble. God’s wanting to bring wholeness. DR.DON:
Amen. MARY COLBERT: You know, I don’t know. I saw the movie,
“Paul the Apostle of Christ.” KENNETH: Yeah. MARY COLBERT: I
don’t know, if you haven’t seen- KENNETH: Yeah. DR.DON: Powerful
movie. MARY COLBERT: You know, I have heard so many major
apostles on the Earth. We’ve gone and spoken, say, “You know,
Don Colbert is God’s Luke in the Earth.” I didn’t fully
appreciate that until I saw that movie because Luke was a
prolific writer and a medical doctor. KENNETH: Yeah. MARY
COLBERT: And I saw that and I went, “That’s what
they were talking about!” KENNETH: And we’re out of
time. MARY COLBERT: Okay. KENNETH: Praise
God, hey Jeremy? JEREMY: Thank you, sir.
You know, God wants you healthy, whole, and strong, and just as
Brother Copeland said today, a major part of that wholeness is
obedience to God. Now, for those of you that don’t know, Dr. Don
Colbert is a Board Certified family practice doctor and a
born again believer. And you have these two experts in their
field, Brother Copeland and Dr. Colbert and both are directing
us towards God’s plan for divine health. And I want you to stay
with us all this week and next as we learn spiritual
and practical steps to maintaining and improving
your quality of life. ANNOUNCER: We hope you enjoyed
today’s teaching from Kenneth Copeland Ministries. And
remember Jesus is Lord.
