Without the sun, none of us would be here. After all, we evolved to live under the sun. But many of us are trained to believe the sun is your deadly enemy.

Almost every week I hear the same complaints from my male patients… No energy, trouble sleeping, a sagging sex drive, weight gain and the dreaded “man boobs.” Many have tried the l...
