Two years later after the success of the LEM article, Dr. Gordon appeared in January 2014 on the Joe Rogan Experience (#438) where the discussion on Traumatic Brain Injury and hormonal dysfunction generated national and international interest.
A second Joe Rogan program in November 2014 (#574) included Jason Hall, the screenwriter for American Sniper and ex-petty officer and Navy Seal Corpsman Matthew Gosney who spoke at length about his blast trauma, gunshot wounds, surgery, depression and 16 different medications that did nothing to prevent his attempted suicide in January 2014. He shares his experience of being evaluated by Dr. Gordon and starting a hormonal replenishment protocol that lead to his stopping 14 medications within 6 weeks and the resolution of his deep depression.
In February 2015, Dr. Gordon and ex-Navy Corpsman, Jordan Cordova shared his experience of military traumas, hormonal deficiencies and recovery from anxiety and depression on a hormonal protocol.

On September 25, 2015, Dr. Gordon and SFC Andrew Marr (ret) were on the Joe Rogan Experience # 700, discussing the benefits of neurosteroids on conditions frequently found associated with TBI and PTSD.
Dr. Gordon continues to work with veterans’ groups providing full and partial funding for those with injuries received while in the theater of war.
Traumatic Brain Injury in Neuropathophysiology:
We talk about quality of health being a major predictor of longevity. The anti-aging movement has been predicated based upon the restoration of hormones that rekindle youthfulness. Aging and genetics were once thought to be the primary causative factor in precipitating hormonal deficiencies. It is now evident that traumas to the head and body can cause a rapid decline in the regulation of these hormones. This presentation promotes the position that trauma begets hormonal deficiencies that affect who and what we are. The mounting number of daily suicides, is a reflection of this condition which curtails longevity.
