Grumpy Old Man Syndrome – Causes and Treatments

Written by , Published on September 20th, 2018

As men grow older, they become more likely to suffer from a condition colloquially known as Grumpy Old Man Syndrome. Everyone knows that as men grow older, usually as they approach 70, but sometimes before, they become more likely to experience irritability, grumpiness, impatience, and other related symptoms. Apparently, this has a tremendous impact on quality of life. Grumpy Old Man Syndrome is the result of a combination of factors, some psychological, some physiological. From the psychological perspective, this is an era where men often feel the need to wall themselves off to protect themselves from sadness and despair. They … Read more »

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

Written by , 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. New Research Shows that More Men Have Low-T than Ever Playboy Magazine is known for more than

Testosterone Levels Associated with Serotonin Activity in the Brain

Written by , 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

Weight Cycling and the Problem with Crash Dieting

Written by , Published on August 9th, 2018

One of the common misconceptions about losing weight is that dieting is the best means by which to do it. Most people also think that dieting is incredibly difficult. While it is true that many struggle with dieting, most people do lose weight when they go on a diet. The problem is that, over time, willpower falls and people go back to their old, poor habits, regaining the weight that they lost successfully. So the biggest problem isn’t losing weight for most individuals, it’s maintaining and continuing weight loss. This is known as weight cycling. Weight Cycling is defined as series of periods of purposeful weight loss and accidental weight gain, generally caused by failed diet attempts. One of the most frustrating aspects of weight cycling is that it can actually lead to weight gain! This is because the body stores fat more readily per calorie consumed when food becomes scarce. So while you lose weight during your diet, your body actually stores more fat per calorie. When you give up on your diet or lose your resolve, most people start eating much like they did before they started the diet. This causes them to gain weight because their bodies

Reexamining Bio-Identical Testosterone Therapy

Written by , Published on July 28th, 2018

Bio-Identical Testosterone There is no doubt that Bio-Identical Testosterone has become increasingly popular over the course of the last generation. There are millions upon millions of aging males that have turned to Low-T Therapy from reputable Hormone Clinics in order to treat Andropause, also known as Age-Related Testosterone Deficiency. Testosterone Creams, Patches, and Injections have shown to be highly capable of boosting Testosterone Levels back to normal (And restoring sex drive and energy) for men suffering from Hypogonadism, but there has always been the question of drawbacks. What is the potential downside of Testosterone? Historically, the lack of longitudinal studies has impaired our knowledge regarding what the risks of Testosterone Therapy truly are, but a growing number of studies released over the course of the last few years have quickly changed what we know about Testosterone. Studies nearer to the turn of the century seemed to suggest that there may be a correlation between cardiovascular disease and Testosterone Therapy, and this necessitated further study to truly recognize the safety concerns related to Low-T Treatment with Therapeutic Testosterone. Testosterone Therapy Safer than Once Believed Fortunately for men with Testosterone Deficiency interested in Hormone Therapy, these studies have not been corroborated, and

The Significance of Telomeres in Stem Cell Treatments

Written by , Published on July 25th, 2018

The body of Stem Cell Research is still relatively small, as the field of research and treatment is still in its earlier stages, but as we learn more about how to use Stem Cells for the benefit of patients, it becomes clear that Telomere Length plays a major role in the functionality of Therapeautic Stem Cells. What Are Telomeres and How Do They Affect Your Life Expectancy? Telomeres are vital genetic structures that maintain the structural integrity of the chromosomes. They are made up of repeating patterns of nucleotides that preserve the genetic code. Telomeres can more easily be understood as comparable to the aglets of a shoelace—the tips that hold the shoelace together. Telomeres are incredibly important because they maintain the function of the chromosome. Every time that a cell replicates, a microscopic sliver of the Telomere is shaved off. Over time, the Telomeres become so short that they can no longer replicate. This is the point at which the cell stops dividing, and the cell goes into a state of degradation over time. Luckily, there are processes which preserve Telomere length, primarily through the mechanisms of an enzyme known as Telomerase. Telomerase has the ability to increase Telomere

Understanding how Muscle and Fat Impact Body Mass, Weight, and Health

Written by , Published on July 25th, 2018

If you’ve ever tried to diet in your life, which most Americans have, you’ve probably felt frustration with the weight scale. You spend two or three weeks working out and eating better only to find that you have only lost a little bit of weight, or perhaps even none at all! Some people even gain a little weight when they start working out. It’s important to realize, however, that the scale never tells the whole story of your dieting journey. Most people are somewhat aware of the concept that muscle weighs more than fat, but don’t realize the implications. This fact is actually the biggest reason why people get so frustrated with scales when they start working out for health. For people that are trying to drop fat and feel better, it may even be better to not use scales at all, and just trust your health regimen and the mirror. One of the many reasons that diets fail is because people focus only on the scale and lose faith in their ability to lose weight. Muscle Vs. Fat At first glance, the idea that muscle weighs more than fat might seem a little strange. Of course, an ounce of

The Role of Nitric Oxide in Cancer Proliferation And Prevention

Written by , Published on July 25th, 2018

Nitric Oxide is an important and multifaceted chemical messenger, that is incredibly vital for maintaining human function. Nitric Oxide acts similar to a hormone, but is an inorganic compound. There is even some evidence that Nitric Oxide can be used therapeautically in order to halt the growth of cancerous tumors. Though Nitric Oxide has been heavily studied, scientists are still in the process of learning the specific mechanisms by which Nitric Oxide mitigates tumor growth. Depending on external factors, Nitric Oxide can also facilitate tumor growth, so it is important to understand specifically the role that Nitric Oxide plays in order to both facilitate new and better cancer treatments and reduce cancer risk. What is Nitric Oxide? Nitric Oxide has been a known entity since the late 19th century, but it was not until 1998 that researchers began to discover the functions of Nitric Oxide in the human system. Three doctors won the Nobel Prize in 1998 for describing Nitric Oxide’s function as a vasodilator. All living human cells have the capacity to produce Nitric Oxide, which is a free radical molecule that can be absorbed in water. What does Nitric Oxide Do? Nitric Oxide is a chemical messenger that

Understanding Heartburn in the 21st Century

Written by , Published on July 22nd, 2018

Heartburn is incredibly painful, and most people have experienced the condition at least a few times in their lives. Surprisingly, though heartburn has been studied since the dawn of modern medicine, there are still a lot of important questions to be asked, and hypotheses that were previously considered true are being questioned once again. Heartburn and Acid Reflux are a widespread health issue throughout the United States. Around 20% of Americans deal with heartburn or Upper Gastrointestinal Pain. What Causes Heartburn? For closing in on a century, it has been generally agreed upon that the root cause of heartburn is the excess secretion of acid in the esophagus. Recent research provides powerful evidence that Heartburn is a much more complex condition, and that the problem isn’t due directly to the influence of the acid itself, but to inflammation that stimulates that acid production. Chronic inflammation is a major medical issue that has far-reaching effects, and new research shows that inflammation has a powerful impact on proper digestion, and can lead to heartburn in many patients, exacerbating the issues already resulting from elevated acid levels. Redefining Heartburn: GERD The scientific term for Heartburn is Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), relating to the

There are a number of effective treatments for Erectile Dysfunction to help men restore their sexual vitality and potency. Erectile Dysfunction also refers to issues which hinder sexual drive as well as core sexual function. What Causes Erectile Dysfunction? Erectile Dysfunction (commonly referred to simply as “ED”) is always the symptom of another underlying problem. The male erection is a hydraulic process tied to erotic desire and sensation. Anything that prevents a man from “getting hard” is a cause for Erectile Dysfunction. Erectile Dysfunction can even be rooted in psychology. Some men, especially those that experience psychological trauma or depression, can have issues with sexual function. The following are some other causes of Erectile Dysfunction: Sleep Issues Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Treatments for Enlarged Prostate Prostate Cancer Treatment Prescription Drug Side-Effect Obesity Diabetes High Blood Pressure Poor Cholesterol Atherosclerosis Cardiovascular Disease and Heart Disease Metabolic Syndrome Hormone Imbalance As you can see, Erectile Dysfunction is associated with a variety of other health issues
