What I would take if …
I am not a doctor. This does not prohibit me from writing what I would take myself, if I felt weak, inflamed, or discomfort in certain parts of my body. I am selling nothing listed here, and nothing works for everybody. A low dose for one person may be a high dose for another person. These things are safe and effective for me, with caution, but they may not be safe for you. Buyer beware.
Some of them may reduce or enhance the effects of prescription pharmaceuticals.
See a physician, before you take anything to prevent, treat, or cure any illness.
N.B. I am not offering any of these. Do your own research.

If I were ill and were not sure of the cause. I would also read the advice of Dr. Nishal Ramnunan about common diseases and natural treatments.
Aromatase inhibitors block the conversion of testosterone to estrogen. If my testosterone were low, I would eat more foods with natural aromatase inhibitors, including artichoke, lemons, limes, parsley, broccoli, kale, carrot, green tea, oats, radishes, mushrooms, and others.
