    Medical clinics across the country are advertising a treatment some believe is a fountain of youth. They're selling hormone therapy as a way to make people look and feel younger. But a CBS News investigation finds this may be putting patients at risk.
    Last year, at the age of 60, Cindy Kinder-Binge was rushed to a hospital in New Albany, Indiana, with a heart rate four times normal. Two months earlier, she had gone to the emergency room with palpitations.

    The body's hormone system is complex and tightly coordinated. Artificially increasing the level of any one hormone over others upsets the finely tuned balance of the entire hormone system.

There are natural ways to increase testosterone levels without resorting to harmful, unethical medical therapies.
