Understanding Heartburn in the 21st Century

Written by Dr. White, 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

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 21st, 2018

The human body is a wonderful machine that requires a lot of ingredients to function properly and keep you feeling happy and healthy. This article is about the three macronutrients that the body needs to survive: Proteins, Carbohydrates, and Fats. Each serves a specific need for your body, and each has a life-sustaining role to play. What Are Proteins? Proteins are organic compounds which are comprised of amino acids. To date, there are twenty known amino acids that the body utilizes, eleven of which are made naturally by the human body. The means that nine others must be consumed in your diet. These amino acids are known as Essential Amino Acids. Why Do We Need Protein? Every one of our cells uses protein, and protein is necessary in the diet in order to fix what’s broken and to help build and rebuild tissues. For example, after you work out, your body uses protein from your diet to patch up and reinforce your muscle tissue, which is what heals you and makes you stronger. Positive Nitrogen Balance is an important concept to consider when thinking about protein. This simply means that you are eating enough protein frequently enough to meet the

What is Erectile Dysfunction?

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 20th, 2018

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

Sermorelin Acetate Drug Information

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 20th, 2018

What is Sermorelin Acetate? Sermorelin Acetate is a Recombinant Prescription Medication designed for the treatment of Idiopathic Human Growth Hormone Deficiency in Children and Adults. Sermorelin Acetate is often prescribed in lieu of Human Growth Hormone Therapy in order to elevate and/or restore normal Endogenous Human Growth Hormone Levels. Sermorelin Acetate is a truncated version of a naturally produced hormone known as Growth Hormone-Releasing Hormone, or GH-RH. How Does Sermorelin Acetate Work? Sermorelin works by perfectly copying the effect of GH-RH on the pituitary gland. When the body recognizes a need for Human Growth Hormone, the Hypothalamus releases GH-RH to stimulate the Pituitary Somatotrophs which are responsible for secreting endogenous Human Growth Hormone. GH-RH travels through a series of blood vessels in the brain known as the Hypophyseal Portal System to activate the Somatotrophs. At this point, Human Growth Hormone is Released. What’s the Difference between Sermorelin and GH-RH? Sermorelin is a functional analogue of GH-RH, meaning that, though it is not molecularly identical, it stimulates the human body in the same way. Sermorelin contains the functional protein structure of GH-RH, without the physiologically impotent junk proteins that comprise a portion of the hormone. This makes it cheaper to produce

Exercise and Mental Health

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 20th, 2018

It’s common to emphasize the physical benefits of exercise, but for many people, the psychological benefits of exercise are just as significant, and may even outweigh the importance of losing weight and improving strength and energy levels. It can be hard to establish a diet or exercise plan. Ask anyone that’s tried to convert from a sedentary lifestyle to a more thoughtful and active lifestyle. On the other hand, most people that engage in a life of activity seem to feed off of it, and the psychological and physiological changes caused by a good exercise routine are self-reinforcing. Increased energy levels ward off fatigue. Sleep comes easier and provides improved wakefulness. In general, there is an improved sense of well-being that is directly associated with exercise. It works the other way around too. People that don’t get enough exercise are more likely to struggle to get off the couch or even out of bed. They also are more likely to suffer from memory issues, and are more likely to suffer from issues with anxiety and depression. Many psychological issues have a direct physical component. Psychological fatigue and physical fatigue go hand in hand. People that don’t get enough physical activity

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 19th, 2018

For men with Testosterone Deficiency, life can feel like walking uphill every day, all the time.

Testosterone Therapy is magnificent because it can put you back in the driver’s seat of your own life, not only restoring sexual livelihood but giving you back the strength and energy to make the most of your life. Using Testosterone Safely First, we should note that Testosterone should not be used by men with healthy Testosterone Levels. There are many that turn to Testosterone to try to elevate their masculinity to super-human levels, but there are significant risks associated with the abuse of Testosterone.

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 19th, 2018

For those with serious Testosterone Deficiency, Low-T Therapy with Testosterone Injections, Creams, or other forms of Prescription Testosterone are the only way to get Testosterone Levels back into a state of harmony, but for those struggling with a mild deficiency, or those looking to pump up Testosterone Levels naturally, there are some steps that you can take to bolster your Testosterone Production. You may be aware of some other ways you can promote healthy T-Levels, such as Anabolic Exercise, Interval Training, and sound sleeping habits, but in this article, we’ll be focusing on how diet may impact Testosterone Balance. Vitamin D and Testosterone Vitamins and Minerals play a crucial role in promoting Testosterone Production, Absorption, and Utilization. Vitamin D is among the most important. Recent studies have shown that, for patients with significant Vitamin D Deficiency, Testosterone Levels also become suppressed. Doctor-monitored Vitamin D Supplementation was shown to increase Testosterone in patients. Of course, in this study, patients were provided with Therapeutic Levels of Vitamin D, which isn’t advisable without a doctor’s consent and advice. On the other hand, it does show us how important Vitamin D is for Hormone Production. In order to make sure your body gets enough

Changes to LabCorp Guidelines for Low-T Diagnosis and How They Impact Your Treatment

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 18th, 2018

As we learn more about Testosterone Deficiency and how our bodies respond to declining Testosterone Levels, we periodically revise our strategies regarding the determination of Low-T. Every patient is different and responds to declining Testosterone Production in their own way, but there are defined clinical limits to what are considered Normal Testosterone Levels and what is characterized as Low-T or Andropause. What is the Testosterone Normal Range? The Clinical Range for establishing healthy Testosterone Levels consists of two values. If your Testosterone Levels are lower than the base of the range, then you are considered Testosterone Deficient. The healthy Testosterone Range is referred to as either the Normal Range or the Reference Range. Any value that falls outside of this range is grounds for further examination. Abnormally high Testosterone Levels are associated with Testosterone Abuse and Cancer, low Testosterone volume is a sure sign of Low-T. When you meet us for Clinical Hormone Evaluation, we primarily use LabCorp as the Diagnostic Testing firm of choice. We utilize the efficient diagnostic capabilities of LabCorp to provide you with fast and accurate diagnoses of Hormone Imbalance and Deficiency. Recently, LabCorp adjusted the way that they evaluate your Testosterone Levels. Previously, the Normal

How to Administer a Testosterone Injection — Low-T Injection Guide

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 13th, 2018

Testosterone Injections are one of the most popular forms of Testosterone Therapy available today. In fact, Low-T Injections were the first treatment available for Testosterone Deficiency. Originally, Testosterone was injected daily, but as recombinant biomedical techniques have advanced, most patients only require one injection every 10-14 days. As of today, Testosterone Cypionate is the most popular form of Testosterone HRT Injection in the United States. Most typical Testosterone Shots are comprised of an ester compound melded with Bio-Identical Testosterone to provide a slow and steady supply of Testosterone over an extended period of time. The following Injection Protocol applies to all Testosterone Ester Injections. Remember, only use Recombinant Testosterone with a prescription from a licensed physician, and always follow the instructions of your doctor to the letter! Testosterone Therapy can produce amazing results for patients with clinically diagnosed Low-T, but it should always be treated with respect. Ensure that You’re Administering the Correct Testosterone Dosage The first step to injecting Testosterone is to check and make sure that you are using the right dosage, as prescribed by your doctor.

Relieve Fatigue and Increase Energy with Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Written by Dr. White, Published on July 13th, 2018

Testosterone Deficiency is a multifaceted medical condition which has a widespread impact on human function. Most people are acutely aware of the sexual issues related to Andropause and Low-T, but other symptoms are less widely known and understood by the average person. One of the many symptoms which deflate quality of life for men with Testosterone Deficiency is fatigue. For men, Testosterone plays a distinct role in metabolism and energy availability. When Testosterone Levels fall to those associated with Low-T, this can lead to extreme fatigue and diminished aerobic capacity. It makes you feel like the world is dragging you down. You not only struggle to find the energy to meet your obligations, you even have trouble motivating yourself to do the things that you want to do. Things that normally excite you. As you can imagine, energy and mood are intrinsically linked. If you don’t have the energy to engage in the activities that you love, you’re more likely to suffer from depression. If you can’t meet the obligations of your life, your work, and your family, this causes stress, which leads to anxiety. Testosterone Deficiency is not just a drain on your sexual health; it prevents you from
