MONICA CROWLEY GUEST HOST: For years, Suzanne Somers has been a pioneer when it comes to alternative medical treatments. And now she teams up with a group of scientists, doctors, and medical professionals to address the way we approach aging.
Her new book "Bombshell: Explosive Medical Secrets That Will Redefine Aging" is in stores now. Sean sat down with Suzanne Somers to talk about this and much more.
SEAN HANNITY, HOST OF "HANNITY": And we welcome back Suzanne Somers, "Bombshell: Explosive Medical Secrets That Will Redefine Aging." Well you redefine aging. I mean, it's amazing. Every time I see you, it's like you look better every day.
SUZANNE SOMERS, AUTHOR: Really, well, I'm 65. This year when I turn 65, I thought so weird when I was a kid, people who were 65 either retired or died. I'm so nowhere near that.
HANNITY: No, nowhere close.
So I thought I write a book and tell people what I do, but actually this is a book about how you can age well because the way we're aging now is not so pleasant.
HANNITY: It's horrible. I actually, you are bringing me more to your side every time I talk to you about health and medicine. In all seriousness, you talk about -- because breast cancer for women, prostate cancer for men. It's like 1 in 8 or 9 women get breast cancer. 1 in 8 men, most men will die with some level of prostate cancer. You say -- go ahead.
SOMERS: I'm so excited to tell this. I sat next to this doctor at a dinner party a couple years ago he's from Harvard --
HANNITY: A urologist.
SOMERS: Urologist, he's on the faculty of Harvard. We got along really great. His name is Dr. Abe Morganteler. And he called me earlier this year, and he said, I think I got something you'll find interesting.
So I said let me turn on my recorder. He said, I just finished a small, but important clinical trial where we are giving testosterone to men with active prostate cancer and their cancer is regressing. The study is two years old. None of the men in the study.
HANNITY: You're giving them testosterone?
HANNITY: But you take shots of testosterone.
SOMERS: I don't take shot. I rub on cream.
HANNITY: But you're a woman. You would think that this would be --
SOMERS: No, women have testosterone. It's a ratio. To be a man, you have testosterone --
HANNITY: You told me I need it. That's what you said to me. Suzanne Somers, sex symbol, goes to me you need to testosterone. Thanks a lot.
SOMERS: But because of the hours you keep, the stress of your life, it blunts hormone production. You live in New York City, stressful. So why wouldn't you take a blood test to see where your testosterone levels are? This is not about manhood.
HANNITY: Do you believe in human growth hormone?
SOMERS: I do. I take it human growth hormone.
HANNITY: And you take testosterone?
SOMERS: And estrogen and progesterone. Yes, cream.
HANNITY: Where do you get all this stuff?
SOMERS: From my doctor. Everything's done by lab work and doctors.
HANNITY: Why are doctors reluctant though to give a lot of the things that you're talking about?
SOMERS: Because they, with all due respect -- I love doctors. With all due respect, though, that even today as we speak, they do not teach about hormones or nutrition.
They spend approximately four hours learning how to prescribe hormones. So unless you've chosen to specialize in hormone replacement -- I'm talking natural bio-identical -- it's like going to a plumber for a heart bypass.
HANNITY: One thing you do say -- this is about reversing aging.
HANNITY: You talk a lot about in this book about increasing your libido, a lot. I know you've been married 44 years.
SOMERS: I know.
HANNITY: But you say it has a dramatic impact. I mean, because I've been around you, you have the energy of a 30-year-old.
SOMERS: I do, I do. I am so enjoying aging.
HANNITY: I am not. I hate it.
SOMERS: Well, you got to do what I tell you to do. My husband's on testosterone. He wasn't absorbing the cream, and so now every Monday we give him his testosterone shot.
