Written by , Published on September 17th, 2018

Sleep is an integral aspect of good health. To maximize wellness, you should be getting 7-9 hours of restful sleep per night. Unfortunately, many men have trouble sleeping as they grow older. One major issue that impairs sleep quality is Nocturia. Nocturia is the medical term for regularly having to go to urinate one or more times per night during sleep. This condition impacts a person's ability to get a good night sleep because it forces you to get out of bed. Nocturia and Poor Sleep Quality have long been linked to some health issues, such as increased impulsiveness, irritability, … Read more »

Escitalopram (Lexapro / Cipralex)

Written by , Published on September 8th, 2018

Escitalopram (Lexapro / Cipralex) What is Escitalopram? Escitalopram is a commonly prescribed antidepressant that also goes by a number of other brand names, including Cipralex and Lexapro. Escitalopram belongs to a class of antidepressant medications known as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), and is FDA approved for the treatment of Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder, both conditions which are most often associated with abnormally low levels of Serotonin in the blood stream. SSRIs like Escitalopram prevent Serotonin from being reabsorbed as quickly, allowing them to remain active in the space between neurons for a longer period of time. This medication is approved for patients twelve years of age or older. Escitalopram and Citalopram Escitalopram (Lexapro) is a stereoisomer of another medication known as citalopram (Celexa), meaning that the molecular configuration of the two compounds are identical, except they are mirror images of one another. Escitalopram is known as an S-Steroisomer, which just references its configuration from a standardized position. Pharmaceutical Uses of Escitalopram (Lexapro) In the United States, Escitalopram (Lexapro) is approved for Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder. In Europe, Escitalopram has a wider range of approved uses, including panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, social anxiety disorder,

Testosterone for Women: Is it an Option Worth Considering?

Written by , Published on September 8th, 2018

Testosterone Therapy has been one of the most talked-about treatments both in the United States and across the western world. Testosterone Deficiency is becoming commonly recognized among men as one of the leading barriers which prevents a patient from achieving long-term health and vitality, and evidence continues to mount that Low-T Therapy with Patches, Creams, and Injections are a highly effective means to establish health and virility among male patients with Testosterone Deficiency. Of course, there is also growing evidence that women can benefit from Testosterone. Women have used Hormone Replacement Therapy for decades as a means to mitigate the effects of Menopause and the Hormone Deficiencies that occur as a result of “the change.” Evidence in recent years accumulates that many of the issues that women experience as they grow older are not simply the result of changes in the feminine hormones, but as a result of declining Testosterone Production as well. Wait—Women Need Testosterone Too? Women produce Testosterone throughout their lives, just as men produce low levels of Estrogen. Women need around 1/10th as much Testosterone as men, but it still serves a variety of important purposes. It stimulates metabolism, improves bone mineral density, and preserves muscle mass.

Baby Boomers find “The Fountain of Youth” in Testosterone

Written by , Published on September 8th, 2018

For thousands of years, explorers, beginning with Ponce de Leon, have been searching for the “Fountain of Youth.” Legend has it the elusive fountain contains a restorative source that brings endless vitality to those who imbibe from its pool. No one knows if the fountain exists, or what the source of its restorative power is. It’s been called everything from the “water of life” to the “elixir of immortality.”   These days, anti-aging specialists simply refer to it as “T.” You’d think T, or testosterone, was pure magic from its highly touted benefits: a blast of increased energy, razor-sharp mental focus, blowtorch fat, piling on muscle, the ability to induce deep, restorative sleep and a raging libido. But experts say altering your body’s natural hormone levels can be risky if not done correctly. As more FDA-approved products hit the market, the baby boomer generation is living up to its reputation as the “eternally young” generation and jumping on the anti-aging bandwagon. In 2011, consumers spent approximately $1.6 billion on Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), almost triple the amount spent in 2006, according to market research company IMS Health. Dr. Harvey Bartnof is the founder of the California Longevity & Vitality Medical

New Study Finds That Testosterone Does Not Increase Cardiovascular Risk

Written by , Published on September 7th, 2018

New Study Finds That Testosterone Does Not Increase Cardiovascular Risk For a long time, men with predispositions to cardiovascular complication have been warned that Testosterone Therapy may increase the risk of a number of dangerous heart conditions. In addition to this, many men that undergo heart failure or other high-risk cardiovascular complications are often put on drugs which inhibit the ability to produce Testosterone, in an effort to protect the patient. New research points out that, although this advice was intended in the best interest of the patient, Testosterone may not have a negative impact on Cardiovascular risk in vulnerable patients. Other recent studies have shown that men with higher Testosterone Levels naturally have stronger hearts, but it was still believed that Testosterone could be a hindrance when issues with the cardiovascular system arise. No Link Established Between Heart Attacks and Testosterone A recent study analyzed the data of twenty four thousand male Medicaid Patients, and could not find a link between their use of Bio-Identical Testosterone and the incidence of heart attack among the patients. Medicaid and Medicare are valuable tools for medical analysis, because such a large number of Americans use the same plan, and the government has

Acidosis: The Hidden Health Destroyer

Written by , Published on September 7th, 2018

  Acidosis: The Hidden Health Destroyer Your Most Important AND Little Known Measure of Good Health What is the most important thing you should focus on for good health?Hint: it’s not your weight…or your BMI…or your cholesterol…or your triglycerides…or even your blood pressure. Without a doubt, these numbers are important. But there is one number that tells you more than these about your health, and you need to be aware of it to ward off disease and live pain-free: Your Blood pH Level The measure of acidity or alkaline in the body is potential hydrogen, or pH, which is expressed in a number between 0 and 14, and is usually measured through blood testing. A reading of 0 is pure acid, 7 is neutral, and 14 is pure alkaline. Without exception, all of your organs, bones, tissues and joints function at their best when your blood pH is slightly alkaline, which is around 7.35. Here’s a brief look at the science behind acidosis The stomach has a normal pH measure of approximately 4.0. Consuming high pH alkaline water causes the stomach pH to rise. When the stomach pH rises above 4.5, the stomach produces more hydrochloric acid. Here is the

Science Stopped Believing in Porn Addiction, and You Should Too

Written by , Published on September 7th, 2018

As Internet use continues to increase our lives, the topic of porn addiction has become an increasingly popular point of debate.

Ensuring The Safety of Testosterone Replacement Therapy for Men

Written by , Published on September 6th, 2018

Late last year, an article was published by the Journal of the American Medical Association that suggested that Testosterone Restoration was associated with an increased risk of stroke, heart attack, and general mortality in males suffering from Low-T. Largely as a result of this study, the FDA now requires that all Testosterone Therapy Manufacturers clearly note these potential risks associated with therapy on every dose of Testosterone Treatment. There’s no reason to have issues with the FDA in this case, because that’s a reasonable step to take, but the study which precipitated this change in Testosterone Labeling was highly flawed, and an example of media entities taking studies in a vacuum and treating them as the definitive word on a particular treatment. JAMA Testosterone Study Flawed In reality, this Testosterone Study is highly flawed, at least when considered as a potential indictment against Low-T Treatment for men suffering from Testosterone Deficiency and Andropause. There’s even the risk that this study could lead patients that could seriously benefit from this form of Hormone Therapy Treatment to avoid life-changing treatment because of the unwarranted fears suggested by this study. In fact, there are many medical professionals that say the the effective validity
