Brief Answer:

Consultation

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

This type of program is dangerous and much more likely to cause health problems than to prolong life.

He should stop taking these hormones immediately. Alcohol is also a major problem here -- he should see an addiction psychiatrist start getting treatment for alcoholism.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
