What is Wellness?
The word Wellness is everywhere. You can find it at the grocery store. You can find it at the pharmacy. You can find it at your local gym. You can even find it in reference to business and finance. With so many using Wellness in marketing, what does Wellness actually mean?
Wellness can mean different things to different people. Wellness, as a word, is open to individual perspective and interpretation. However, words still mean what they say. I want to present what Wellness is from a Health care perspective.
“androgen use and abuse is increasing in our society, either for therapeutic or recreational reasons”.

Today is the age of twitter, emojis, 30 second commercial ads, abbreviations, character limitation and limited attention span. The old adage is ‘brevity is the soul of wit’. In this new age of character limitation that is the result of limited attention span, brevity is the soul of communication. To be consistent with the age, I give you brevity in a title: 50–25—21.
What is 50–25—21? The 50—25—21 is a rule, a rule to separate therapeutic uses of Testosterone from recreational uses of Testosterone. The 50—25—21 rule is a reference to the statistics of Testosterone therapy found in the medical science. The 50–25–21 rule allows one to separate physiologic, evidence-based Testosterone therapy from recreational, non-evidence-based Testosterone therapy—or simply Testosterone doping. As the quote above points out, androgen use and abuse, at the hands of physicians, is increasing in our society.
