Tamoxifen Citrate

Written by Dr. White, Published on September 1st, 2018

Tamoxifen Citrate What is Tamoxifen? Tamoxifen is an orally administered medication which is one of the most important medications used in the treatment of breast cancer around the world. Because of its importance, and the prevalence of breast cancer around the globe, Tamoxifen is included in the WHO’s List of Essential Medicines, those which are considered absolutely necessary to provide basic care to patients. How Does Tamoxifen Work? Tamoxifen is a medication which limits the activity of Estrogen in the breast tissue. When Tamoxifen is taken, it is broken down into a compound known as 4-hydroxytamoxifen, which then travels through the body producing effects dependent upon where it is. Tamoxifen is considered most valuable because of its effect on breast tissue, but it also impacts processes in other areas of the body, such as the endometrium. In this area of the body, Tamoxifen actually encourages Estrogenic activity, whereas in the breast tissue it significantly reduces the effects of Estrogen upon breast tissue. Because Tamoxifen impacts Estrogen activity differently dependent upon the area of the body, it is referred to as a Selective Estrogen-Receptor Molecule. It is highly effective at treating breast cancer, and the primary form of Hormone Therapy for

Vardenafil (Levitra) Guide

Written by Dr. White, Published on September 1st, 2018

What is Vardenafil? Vardenafil is one of the three primary Erectile Dysfunction medications available in the United States, and is sold under the brand name Levitra in the United States. In Italy, the product is known as Vivanza, and in India, it is known as Staxyn. How Does Vardenafil Work? Like its cousins, Sildenafil (Viagra) and Tadalafil (Cialis), Vardenafil is what is known as a PDE5 Inhibitor. PDE5 Inhibitors increase blood flow to the penis by encouraging the relaxation of muscles within the organ which restrict blood flow, which leads to erection. What Causes an Erection? To put it simply, an erection occurs when blood flow is encouraged to the penis and blood outflow is restricted, producing a ballooning effect which leads directly to erection. Blood vessels leading to the penis, in the Corpus Cavernosum, dilate, which leads blood to enter the penis more quickly, and veins which draw blood away from the penis undergo vasoconstriction. In order for this process to take place, a man must experience stimulation which promotes the erection. When a man experiences stimulation, it encourages the manufacture of nitric oxide by the organ, which then dissipates out through the penis. Nitric oxide is a powerful

Testosterone Deficiency and Low-T at Epidemic Levels Among Men in the United States

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 28th, 2018

Medical professionals across the country have seen a boom in men that are looking for Testosterone Therapy Treatments in order to mitigate the effects of Low-T and Andropause. This is partially because of the increased social-awareness regarding the effects of Testosterone Deficiency, which include weight gain, loss of muscle mass, erectile dysfunction, and depression, but there is also some concern that the increased incidence of Low-T among aging men may also be the result of other factors, including Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals, Obesity, and other Lifestyle Issues which contribute to declining Testosterone Levels among the male population. One of the most well-known experts in Low-T Treatment is Dr. Mark Rosenbloom, who is the director of the LIFEFORCE Medical Institute, a Hormone Clinic in Chicago, Illinois, which specializes in the use of HRT Treatments such as Testosterone Therapy in order to improve health and wellness with aging. As medical science grows regarding the effects of Hormone Imbalance and Deficiency on the human body, medical clinics such as LIFEFORCE will become both more prominent and more important in our quest to maintain good health throughout our lives.

Testosterone Levels Associated with Serotonin Activity in the Brain

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 27th, 2018

Testosterone and other Androgen hormones have a strong and potent impact on psychological function and wellness. There are a wide variety of studies which have investigated how Testosterone affects the minds of both men and women. For example, changing female hormone levels are associated with both premenstrual mood changes and post-partum depression. Of course, not all effects of Testosterone on women are negative, however. Natural Testosterone Levels benefit sexual desire and emotional health in a positive manner for women, in a similar manner as they do in men. There is strong clinical evidence which shows that Testosterone Deficiency is associated with an increased risk of depression and mood disorders among men, and research has also shown that Bio-Identical Testosterone Therapy has the power to improve the psychological outlook of male patients taking Low-T Patches, Injections, and Creams for Low-T, but the exact mechanism by which Testosterone alters mood is less well understood. Recent data produced by University of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy has shown that Testosterone improves Serotonin signalling in the brain by boosting the volume of proteins which are designed to transport Serotonin. The study was conducted by scientific researchers at the Medical University of Vienna. Many anti-depressant medications available

The Truth Behind Common Male Sex Myths

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 27th, 2018

In spite of the fascination with sex by the Western public and encouraged by the Western media, there are still many aspects of our sexuality, in which we are misinformed, largely because of our still somewhat-Puritanical views on sex in many aspects. A recent book looks to dispel some of these sex-myths, and it is called “Sex by Numbers: What statistics can tell us about sexual behavior.” In a world where we are fascinated by the mythology behind sexuality, this book attempts to dispel (or validate) those myths using real scientific data about sexuality. The author of the book is Cambridge professor Dr. David Spielgalhalter. What is the average male penis size? The commonly held wisdom regarding penis-size is that the average length of the male penis is around six inches. This myth is among the easiest to clarify, because there has been an abundance of research in recent years regarding penis size all across the world. One group of researchers performed a survey of twenty different studies specifically related to penis-size, measuring over 15,000 men across the globe. One of the issues which made previous studies so inaccurate was that they largely revolved around “self-report” and were thus not

Relationship Among Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, High Testosterone, and Diabetes

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 27th, 2018

Prostate Enlargement is one of the most widespread age-related conditions among males in the United States today. Prostate Enlargement is referred to medically as BPH, or Benign Prostate Enlargement. The older that a man gets, the more likely he is going to experience BPH in his lifetime. If a man lives to be eighty, there is more than a ninety percent chance that he will experience a measurable level of Prostate Enlargement. A large chunk of those men, around forty percent, will need some form of medical intervention for BPH. BPH represents a significant strain on the health care economy, because it is both widespread and can be expensive to treat. It is believed that Benign Prostate Hyperplasia leads to billions upon billions in cost to patients nationwide, both in the form of treatment and in terms of medical leave from employment. Of course, there are almost certainly other costs involved which have not been accurately assessed, so there is a large intangible cost to BPH as well. Recent research published by the University of California at Santa Barbara brings us closer to understanding the underlying issues which lead to BPH. This study provides strong evidence that abnormally high levels

Twenty Facts You May Not Know About Testosterone

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 27th, 2018

Testosterone is more popular than ever in the United States. Though the hormone is widely known and recognized for its benefits to men with Testosterone Deficiency, most people still have a lot of questions about the hormone. The goal of this article is to explain some lesser known facts about Testosterone—How Testosterone is Made, Why Testosterone is Important, and more. Where is Testosterone Produced? Most people know that Testosterone is produced by the Testicles, but did you know that Testosterone is also produced by other parts of the body as well? In addition to the Testicles, Testosterone is also secreted by the adrenal glands in men, and in both the ovaries and adrenal glands in women—That’s right, women produce and require Testosterone as well. The release of Testosterone during the early phase of gestation triggers the development of primary sex characteristics. How Does Testosterone Affect Physiological Function during Childhood? Testosterone is important in both sexes after a child is born. For example, Testosterone helps to modulate the manufacture of Red Blood Cells, as well as the distribution of body fat across the body. After puberty, increased Testosterone production in males contributes to their lower natural body fat percentage. Did Our

Physiology of Testosterone

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 26th, 2018

What is Testosterone? Testosterone is one of the many chemical messengers known as Hormones, and it is important for the normal health and function of both men and women, though the hormone is primarily associated with male wellness and development. Testosterone belongs to a specific class of hormones known as steroids. Most people think of steroids as hormones or chemicals that boost anabolic, muscle-building performance, but a steroid represents a molecule with a specific structure that is most commonly used in order to deliver messages and exert physiological changes in the body. Three common steroids are cholesterol, testosterone, and estrogen. In fact, the human body builds both Testosterone and Estrogen from a core of cholesterol, which is one reason why cholesterol is such an important part of daily nutritional intake. Testosterone and Prenatal Development Testosterone is responsible for the development of primary male sex characteristics while the child is still in the womb. In the normal developmental cycle, Testosterone begins to affect the male fetus around seven weeks after conception, and encourages the formation of Leydig Cells, which are responsible for the production of Testosterone. After the fetus develops its own ability to produce Testosterone, the internal male sexual organs

New Research Shows that Testosterone Therapy is Not Associated with an Increased Prostate Cancer Risk in Patients with Low-T

Written by Dr. White, Published on August 26th, 2018

Research regarding the effects of Testosterone Deficiency and Testosterone Treatment for men with Low-T has ballooned in recent years, as the number of male patients that have sought out Testosterone Treatments such as Testosterone Injections and Patches has grown into the millions. There have been questions about Testosterone with regard to its safety, however. For one, there has been some evidence that suggests that Testosterone Replacement Therapy increases the risk of Prostate Cancer and other Reproductive Cancers. Based on new research published by The Journal of Urology, however, the risk of Prostate Cancer that has been previously associated with Testosterone Therapy is overstated, and may not increase the risk of the form of cancer at all. What is Hypogonadism, and How is Low-T Therapy Used to Treat Hypogonadism? Hypogonadism refers to any health issue that leads to reduced levels of Testosterone. Many men suffer from Primary Hypogonadism, a class of conditions in which the testes are not able to sufficiently produce Testosterone to meet the needs of the body. Most men that experience Testosterone Deficiency, however, suffer from Secondary Hypogonadism, a class of conditions in which issues upstream, related to the production of precursor hormones such as Leutenizing Hormone and
