  • Erectile Dysfunction: Best Options Beyond Medication, Lifestyle Changes

    Mid age couple head and shoulders

    Most men who experience erectile dysfunction (ED) can achieve stimulation through oral medications like Viagra®, Titan gel® and Cialis®. Lifestyle changes can also help remedy the problem. They may quit smoking or lose weight, or undergo psychotherapy.

    While these are the most common methods, they may not work for everyone. For example, male heart patients who take coronary vasodilators (to help open up coronary arteries) should not take medication for ED in the first place because both types of medications lower the blood pressure, and in combination, they lower the blood pressure too much, according to urologist Drogo “Karl” Montague, MD. Fortunately for these men, there are a few other options, each with its own pros and cons. The choice generally comes down to personal preference, he says.

    Causes and treatment options for ED

    “We do see an increased percent of ED as men age, but it’s due to age-related disorders, and a lot of those disorders are based on lifestyle,” he says. “ED may also be the result of a relationship disturbance or death in the family. When you have sudden onset of ED with somebody who has something [emotionally upsetting] going on in his life, it may well be related.”

    He recommends three other options for ED when medication or lifestyle changes do not solve the problem:

    1. Vacuum device

    Some men use a vacuum device into which they insert their penis: They grease the tube, lower a rubber ring and squeeze a pump that creates a vacuum inside the chamber. With the rubber ring in place for 30 minutes, men often are then able to have sex, Dr. Montague says. Some find it too mechanical, and it has a “hassle factor,” he says, and the device also can be uncomfortable and/or impede ejaculation.

    “This can often be made to work,” he says. “It’s not acceptable for some people. But it’s safe, and effective.”

    2. Injection

    Other men opt for a penile injection, using a diabetic’s syringe and needle. The injected medication dilates the arteries and increases blood flow every time they want to have sex. The needle is small, so the injection is not terribly painful, but the treatment can be expensive, Dr. Montague says.

    “If the erection starts to become curved, we need to know,” he adds. “If the erection doesn’t go down after two hours, you need to come in for a reversal. But there are men who use this for years.”

    3. Surgical implants

    Those who would prefer not to use either of these first two options can turn to a surgical procedure. The surgeon inserts two cigar-shaped cylinders filled with saline attached to a small pump between the testicles and places a saline-filled reservoir inside the abdominal muscles. None of this is visible from the outside, although you can feel the pump from the outside of the scrotum. Squeezing that pump causes the saline to fill the cylinders, which simulates blood flow into the penis and causes “something close to a normal erection,” says Dr. Montague.

    “The head of the penis doesn’t fill up, but otherwise it’s the same,” he says. “Each time the man pumps it up, it gets fully firm. Most men are a little shorter than previously. But it gets firm, stays firm, and he doesn’t have to worry about losing the erection. It doesn’t go down until he withdraws and presses a relief valve.”

    The downside of implants is a 2 percent chance of infection, which requires removal of the device, and a 6 percent chance of the device failing within five years (and 19 percent within 10 years), Dr. Montague says.

    “The attractive thing about an implant is that it’s part of your body,” he says. “If you go on vacation, you don’t have to remember to take syringes or medications. It’s MRI safe, and it doesn’t set off any detectors at the airport. You can have sex whenever you want, at no cost per use, with the same response every time.”

    Surgical implants are typically not a man’s first choice, he adds, but men rate them most highly of all options in satisfaction surveys.

    How a man’s wife or significant other can help

    A man’s wife or significant other typically is supportive of a patient with erectile dysfunction, in the sense that partners typically say, “Honey, it’s OK. I still love you, and it’s not important,” Dr. Montague says.

    But he encourages partners to mention that it’s a common problem and that there are straightforward solutions that a man can discuss with his urologist.

    “She should encourage him to mention this to the doctor as part of his annual checkup,” he says. “Some doctors screen for this, and some don’t. If a man has a problem in this area, he will invariably get referred to a urologist. Most will prescribe oral medications. If they fail, then they go to a urologist who specializes in erectile dysfunction.”

  • Exercise: Do’s and Don’ts Beyond Age 50

    133441128-exercise-and-elderly-couple-biking

    For seniors, even a small amount of exercise can have health benefits. And if you’re already healthy, staying active in your golden years helps you build extra muscle reserve and flexibility to recover more quickly if you do get sick.

    Exercise is not only for your body, says Ronan Factora, MD, who specializes in geriatrics. It can benefit your brain. It’s been shown to decrease depression and anxiety, as well as improve and preserve cognitive functioning.

    “There is not a single pill that is going to provide this many benefits,” he says.

    Dr. Factora shares do’s and don’ts for exercising when you’re 50 or older — whether you’re having trouble getting off the couch or are already out there biking and hiking.

  • Cholesterol, Fats, Salt and Your Diet: The Best Heart-Healthy Choices

    Overhead closeup of raw eggs on a brown background

    I often am asked what people should eat to help maintain their heart health. One reason might be that the topic of diet has become very controversial in recent years.

    For example, the U.S.  Department of Agriculture told Americans for years in dietary guidelines to avoid eating more than three eggs a week. It turns out that only about 10 percent to 15 percent of the cholesterol in your bloodstream comes from cholesterol in the diet. Most of it is actually made by your own body.

    So getting rid of eggs and foods that contain cholesterol doesn’t have a very big impact on your cholesterol levels. Eggs are fine. They’re actually a very healthy food.

    Good fats, bad fats

    Even more controversial is the question of the type of fats that you eat.  Again, we were told for many years not to eat butter. Many physician scientists now are beginning to question whether strict avoidance of butter is necessary.

    We do know that certain kinds of fats known as polyunsaturated fats and mono unsaturated fats seem to lower cholesterol a little bit. These are the kind of fats that are in olive oil and canola oil. They’re probably a bit healthier.

    There is one type of fat you don’t want to eat. It’s called trans fats or hydrogenated vegetable oil. The data is really pretty solid that trans fats are to be avoided.

    People need to read the labels on food. If it says hydrogenated vegetable oil, it’s a good idea to stay away. And if any of the margarine products that some people eat say hydrogenated vegetable oil, that’s also a good reason to stay away.

    Those hydrogenated oils are commonly used in some fast foods, various kinds of chips and other snack foods. Being aware of that can help significantly.

    One warning on fats to everybody: The idea that a low-fat diet is healthy has been disproven over and over again.

    Reducing salt

    There also is controversy about salt. There certainly are salt-sensitive people, but a debate is going on now about whether everybody needs to reduce salt in their diet.

    You certainly don’t want to overdose on salt. But if your blood pressure is normal and you’re otherwise healthy, some amount of salt in the diet should not be viewed as a sin.

    The overall diet that’s best

    And then finally what kind of a diet is the healthiest diet? We have very good evidence from a very large study performed in Spain that shows that the Mediterranean diet is the healthiest diet.

    The Mediterranean diet is a diet that’s rich in olive oil and nuts. It has relatively small amounts of meat, an increased amount of fish, lots of fruits and vegetables.

    You can get cookbooks on the Mediterranean diet and it has one huge advantage over the kinds of fad diets that are circulating around the country: It’s tasty. You don’t have to eat cardboard boxes for dinner to actually have a healthy diet.

  • 23 Foods That Are Good For Your Skin

    rp_meny-na-nedely_1-min

    Your skin is a reflection of your overall health. If you’re healthy inside, you’re healthy outside.

    You can’t stop yourself from aging. But here are some foods I recommend that can help firm and protect your skin.

    Eat fish for firmer skin

    Omega-3 fatty acids do a lot of good things, including lowering your triglycerides and battling inflammation. But they also help preserve collagen in your skin and keep it firmer. The top source of omega-3s is fish, and these are the best:

    •    Salmon
    •    Tuna (bluefin and albacore)
    •    Lake trout
    •    Sardines and anchovies
    •    Mackerel
    •    Atlantic sturgeon

    Try plant-based sources of skin-firming omega-3s

    Though most plant-based foods — veggies, nuts and oils — don’t provide as much omega-3 as fish, they’re still a solid source.

    Flaxseed oil is particularly rich in the collagen-boosting fatty acid. Don’t cook with flaxseed oil; mix it into smoothies or yogurt, or use it as a salad dressing.

    Chia seeds are another great source that you can sprinkle onto yogurt, cereal and salad, and into batter for muffins and pancakes.

    Other plant-sourced omega-3 foods that can benefit your skin:

    •    Walnuts and walnut oil
    •    Soy foods and soybean oil
    •    Canola oil
    •    Spinach
    •    Mustard greens
    •    Wheat germ

    Eat fruits and veggies — plus chocolate

    Fruit, vegetables and dark chocolate supply antioxidants and vitamins that help protect your skin from free radicals and sun damage, which keeps the skin looking younger and more radiant.

    I’ll start with tomatoes (yes, technically a fruit — but used as a vegetable in cooking). Tomatoes contain lycopene, an antioxidant which can help keep your skin smoother. And you know tomatoes are easy to work into anything: salads, side dishes, sandwiches.

    Other fruits and vegetables not only contain antioxidants but healthy amounts of vitamins C and E, which can fight wrinkles. These are among some of the best choices for better skin:

    •    Strawberries
    •    Citrus – oranges, grapefruit, lemons, limes
    •    Cantaloupe
    •    Apricots
    •    Broccoli
    •    Sweet potatoes
    •    Spinach

    As far as chocolate goes — and a lot of us would follow it anywhere — dark chocolate contains flavonals that can reduce rough texture in the skin and protect against sun damage. Have a few ounces a day, but make sure it’s made up of 60- to 70-percent cocoa.

    Watch serving sizes and sugar

    A lot of the things that help your skin are healthy for you to eat. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, but still watch your serving sizes; fruit has a good amount of sugar. And cut down on the unhealthy junk. You’ll feel better and look better — and your skin will reflect it all.

  • How to lose weight?

    telemmglpict0

    here are a lot of weight loss plans out there, promising dramatic results in a short space of time. And no wonder – given that the third most searched ‘how to’ term on Google is ‘how to lose weight’, it’s inevitable that there are people and companies out there looking to capitalise by selling the latest quick fix.

    Of course, losing weight fast sounds great, but there’s a big catch. While seeing a difference in your body shape early on can be motivating and satisfying, nutritionists and dietitians warn that losing weight quickly is mostly unsustainable and doesn’t promote a long-term healthy relationship with food.

    Though crash or ‘fad’ diets that lack nutrients are unlikely to have a huge impact on overall physical health because they are short term, their impact on mental well being can be long lasting.

    Losing weight quickly doesn’t always promote a healthy relationship with food, say dietitians.

  • Upsize Bust Care – Fuller & Firmer Breast Enhancement Cream?

    pack

    Upsize Bust Care Cream is a topical formula that helps women to increase the size of their breasts without any hormones. This treatment promises to show significant results within four to eight weeks.

    What is Upsize Bust Care Cream?

    Every woman has a part of their body that makes them feel self-conscious. With the popularity of curvy body types in Hollywood rising, you may be wishing you had more curves to fill out your favorite shirt. Unfortunately, if you’re an A cup or a B cup, there’s not much to fill out your shirt. You can’t even exercise this area to increase your bust line. If you decide that it’s time to get a shapelier bosom, then Upsize Bust Care Cream is the best solution.

    Upsize Bust Care Cream helps you to deliver essential ingredients to your breasts to stimulate growth. According to the claims on the website, you can continue to apply it to make your breasts appear fuller and pushed up, but the reality is that you will also be improving some signs of aging. Most of the reason breasts begin to sag or become less full is due to the aging process, so the formulas help to tighten skin and improve elasticity as well.

    If you feel concerned about your breasts, you may think that the only way to increase their size is by getting implants, but there are many issues in regards to this procedure. First of all, a breast augmentation is very expensive, requiring the consultation of your surgeon multiple times to determine how you want to look after, but that’s only the start of the bill. If you want to find an affordable way to get a sexy bosom, then the Upsize Bust Care Cream can help.

    How Does Upsize Bust Care Cream Work?

    The Upsize Bust Care Cream is effective in helping you boost your breast size, due to the inclusion of several ingredients, which are:

    • Anemarrhena Asphodeloides (Root) Extract, which appears to help protect the skin of your breasts from succumbing to free radicals and toxins
    • Pueraria Mirifica Root Extract, to improve the size of your breasts while preventing stretch marks
    • Macadamia Seed Oil, to provide your skin with softening nourishment
    • Shea Butter, which acts as a moisturizer
    • Jojoba Seed Oil, which is known for helping with many skin issues that cause inflammation and redness
    • Panthenol, to provide your skin with the necessary inclusion of vitamin B5
    • Tocopheryl Acetate, which is also known as Vitamin E and can help provide moisture to parched skin
    • Urea, which is one of the most moisturizing substances in skincare

    With all of these ingredients, you may notice that most of the formulas focus on nourishing the skin on your bust line. That’s because, over time, the skin on this heavy area of your chest will begin to stretch and lose elasticity. There’s no need to worry, since this is a normal part of the aging process. However, the company attempts to strengthen the skin around this area, which helps to make them look shapely and perky.

    As you apply the product, you are given the perfect blend of ingredients to stimulate growth, though it appears that most of the work is done by the Pueraria Mirifica root extract. However, the key to real results is to apply the formula on a regular basis.

    Using Upsize Bust Care Cream

    Since this formula is a topical remedy, it’s incredibly easy to apply for the best results. According to the creators of the Upsize cream, you should start with washing the area you want to apply it to. When you start with a clean surface, the cream is able to penetrate your skin more deeply.

    Massage the cream into the skin of your breasts every morning and every evening to see real results. The company recommends that you use the cream for about 8 weeks to see real results.

    Pricing for Upsize Bust Care Cream

    Unfortunately, no information is available for pricing at this time.

    Contacting the Creators of Upsize Bust Care Cream

    Typically, if you want more information about this product, then you would need to contact their customer service team. However, no phone number has been provided at this time, so you will need to wait for the website to be updated.

    Upsize Bust Care Cream Conclusion

    Using the Upsize Bust Care Cream is an excellent way to avoid going under the knife, for the sake of having bulging breasts popping out of your shirt. Even though this remedy is not meant to significantly grow your bosom, it will help to improve your skin texture to create a more attractive shape. With this support available in a simple cream, you end up with much more than attractive breasts; you help to reclaim your youthful figure and gain confidence that will go a long way.

  • Breast Augmentation: The Second Time Around

    Times change. And so may your breast size.

    When women come in for a breast augmentation consultation, I tell them about two circumstances that could change their surgical results in the future: pregnancy and significant weight change.

    During pregnancy, breasts enlarge from hormonal changes and milk production. Afterward, they could return to their original size or get smaller or bigger. And because breasts are made up mostly of fatty tissue, they will get bigger or smaller as you gain or lose weight. Often, they are the first indicators.

    Although your breasts may change, your implants will remain the same. They don’t need to be replaced every 10 years. In fact, I’ve changed a woman’s implants after 19 years – she had a child, got smaller and wanted to go bigger – and the implants looked the same as they did the day I put them in.

    About 10 percent of my breast augmentation patients come in for a consultation to get information about making a change. The average time elapsed is about 10 years, though it varies greatly.

    They tell me, “I’ve gained a lot of weight, and I’m much bigger than I want to be. I’d like to go a little smaller.”

    Or, “After my two children, my breasts got smaller. I just want to get my pre-pregnancy size back – and maybe a little extra.”

    Others say, “I went for the gusto 15 years ago. I’ve enjoyed them and they served their purpose, but now that I’m 50something, I just want them a little smaller.”

    Like the first time, we look at before and after photographs of women who started out similar to them in height, weight, frame size and breast volume. They tell me, “too big,” too small” or “just right” so I know what size implants to order.

    Breast augmentation surgery is easier the second time around. Here’s what’s involved in upsizing or downsizing:

    Less discomfort: To change each implant, I go through the same incision that I made initially in the crease beneath the breast. I don’t have to make a pocket beneath the chest muscle for the implant, so there is less manipulation of breast tissue and therefore less discomfort post-op. All you’ll feel is the incision. Consequently, you’ll likely need less medication after surgery for discomfort.

    Shorter procedure time: This second surgery takes less time than your initial breast augmentation surgery, which means less anesthesia and a lower possibility of post-operative nausea and vomiting.

    Shorter recovery time: You should still take it easy for a week, but you could probably get back to work on the third day because there is much less chance of bleeding. So if your surgery is on a Friday, you could return to work on Monday. First-timers are generally back to work in an office setting in 5 days. And you don’t have to wait until the sixth week to do upper body weights. You can start up again after three weeks.

    Quicker results: Because your skin and chest muscle have already stretched to accommodate your implants, the implants won’t start off high like they did the first time. You’ll pretty much see the final result when you get home. After surgery, I’ll have you wear something supportive like a sports bra for three weeks to protect your incision. At that time, you’ll be able to wear and do anything and everything you want. No waiting eight weeks this time to go shopping for new bras and bathing suits.

  • Breast enlargement: how big should you go?

    bra

    There are many psychological, and some physical, benefits to having a breast enlargement. Besides reconstructive and corrective surgery to fix abnormalities, women opt to have breast surgery for cosmetic reasons in order to improve their appearance. In this way, breast enlargement may boost self-esteem and help a woman feel happier about her body.

    This leads to a tough question that requires careful consideration: how big should you go? If you choose a breast size that is too large you may ultimately need cosmetic surgery later to downsize. On the other hand, you may regret not going larger and feel dissatisfied with the result, so it’s important to make the right choice.

    This article on breast enlargement is written by Jackie Griffiths, a freelance journalist who writes health, medical, biological, and pharmaceutical articles for national and international journals, newsletters and web sites.


    Considerations

    There is much to weigh up in considering breast enlargement cosmetic surgery. If you’re thinking about going as large as possible to get your money’s worth: think again. This is impractical and you will probably end up going back under the knife for a reduction. Similarly, if others are encouraging you to go large, but you are unsure, remember that you are the one who has to live with the results, no-one else. Some women may complain after a breast enlargement that they wish they had opted for a bigger size, but this shouldn’t affect your decision. You might not feel the same as them at all.

    The majority of women who have a breast enlargement request an increase of two cup sizes. Often they choose a mid to large C cup, with the minority opting for a D cup. Staying within your natural size range is key to maintaining a balanced physique.

    Your plastic surgeon will help you calculate the best size taking into account your height, shoulder width, and waistline. But first, think about the following factors and how larger breasts will affect your life:

    Frame size

    Decide what frame size you are – and ask someone else for a second opinion. This will help determine if you can get away with a large bust. For instance, if you have a small or petite frame, having very large breasts will get you a lot of attention and it will probably be quite obvious that you have had a breast enlargement.

    The aim of breast enlargement surgery is to achieve a balanced overall look. If you’re going for an hourglass figure, you will want a bust size the same size as your hips, which ideally is 9 to 10 inches bigger than your waist. However, not all women are blessed with small waists.

    Physiology

    Consider how much existing breast tissue you have and whether the implants used in breast enlargement will go over or under the chest muscle wall. If you have very little natural breast tissue, hiding the implants will be a problem and contour irregularities will show up. Going under the muscle will help, but the implants may tend to “jump” during exercise, caused by the compression of the implant by the pectoral muscle.

    Similarly, if you have thin skin and go for a considerable upsize, the skin will thin out even more and sag faster than if you had gone with smaller implants.

    Lifestyle

    Take a look at your lifestyle – what you do for a living and what hobbies you enjoy. Having larger breast implants can negatively affect your performance in all kinds of sports, such as tennis, scuba diving, biking, horse riding, golf, ballet, and much more. If your bosom is too large, there is no sports bra that will adequately support you.

    Breast enlargements may also affect your career. If you’re a businesswoman and can’t hide your new implants under a suit, be prepared to be the talk of the office for a while. The best way is to transition slowly with padded bras or silicone enhancers, and after surgery save the low-cut tops for the weekends.

    Psychological effects

    If you get embarrassed by people staring at your breasts, you should definitely think twice about going for breast enhancement. You must choose the size that is right for you, both physically and mentally. What’s more, if it matches your body frame, the overall look will be perfectly natural and is less likely to attract looks.

    Be aware that women with large breasts complain they make them feel heavier, or even fat, no matter what their body shape. This is often the main factor (besides premature sagging and discomfort) for having a breast reduction.

  • Can a Cup of Green Coffee Help You Lose Weight? You’ll Be Surprised!

    A hot cup of cappuccino is a favourite pick-me-up for many. Its smoky aroma and the carefully set foam on the brink of the cup call out for a quick sip that makes you feel instantly energized and charged up. As a coffee lover, you may think you know everything about it but that may not be the case. A new variety of coffee has been creating a lot of buzz and if you happened to have missed it, we’ll update you. Green coffee beans are seeds of the coffee fruits that are not roasted unlike regular coffee. These coffee beans have a higher amount of cholorgenic acid which is believed to have numerous health benefits. The amount of this compound reduces as you roast the coffee beans to make them into what we generally consume.

    According to Dr. Simran Saini from Fortis Hospital, “Chlorogenic acid in green coffee acts as an antioxidant. It helps in controlling high blood pressure, aids weight loss and maintain blood sugar levels in the body.”

    Green coffee has particularly become popular for its weight loss benefits just like green tea. This light coloured brew that is enjoyed without milk or sugar and has a very mild flavour is known to help you lose weight in many ways. A study published in the Indian Journal of Innovative Research and Development (IJIRD) indicates that the miracle active ingredient called chlorogenic acid found in green coffee helps in weight loss. Since the beans are not roasted the compound retains its potent properties that benefit the body. It helps in melting the unwanted fat and thus, aids weight loss. Not just that, here are five amazing weight loss benefits of drinking green coffee regularly you may have not known.

The amount of this compound reduces as you roast the coffee beans to make them into what we generally consume.

    According to Dr. Simran Saini from Fortis Hospital, “Chlorogenic acid in green coffee acts as an antioxidant. It helps in controlling high blood pressure, aids weight loss and maintain blood sugar levels in the body.”Green coffee has particularly become popular for its weight loss benefits just like green tea. This light coloured brew that is enjoyed without milk or sugar and has a very mild flavour is known to help you lose weight in many ways. A study published in the Indian Journal of Innovative Research and Development (IJIRD) indicates that the miracle active ingredient called chlorogenic acid found in green coffee helps in weight loss. Since the beans are not roasted the compound retains its potent properties that benefit the body. It helps in melting the unwanted fat and thus, aids weight loss. Not just that, here are five amazing weight loss benefits of drinking green coffee regularly you may have not known.

    1. Boosts your metabolism

    The presence of chologenic acid in green coffee is known to boost your metabolism. It helps increase the Balsamic Metabolic Rate (BMR) of our body, which further minimizes the release of glucose from the liver into the bloodstream. To fulfill the requirement of glucose, the body starts burning the excess fat stored in the fat cells, eventually resulting in weight loss.

    2. Curbs your appetite

    If you’re someone who constantly falls for sudden hunger pangs and ends up binging on unnecessary calories, sip some green coffee. Again, the cholorogenic acid acts as a natural appetite suppressant. It helps control cravings and prevents us from overeating.Regular green coffee consumption is also known to block fat and carb absorption in the body.

    3. Improves blood circulation

    Blood carries out several critical functions in the body including transporting oxygen to the cells and at the same time, it removes the gases and toxins from the cells. Any blockages or a sluggish flow of blood may cause inactivity and lead to fatigue and lethargy that can affect your metabolism and in turn, slow down the fat burning process. A cup of green coffee can be a great energizer to help your body burn fats and calories faster.

    4. Burns fat

    Pure green coffee beans help in raising the fat burning capability of our body. It increases the releases of fat burning enzymes in the body. Further, it acts as a great natural detoxifier for the liver. It cleanses the liver and removes bad cholesterol and unnecessary fats which eventually perks up our metabolism.

    5. Decreases the absorption of sugars

    Consumption of green coffee decreases the absorption of sugars in your small intestines which means that less sugar is available to be stored as fat and more calories are burnt helping you lose those extra pounds.

    When is the best time to have green coffee?

    The best time to have green coffee is right after your meals. This is because after eating your blood sugar levels generally spike up due to the consumption of carbohydrates or proteins. The excess sugar generated when food is broken down during digestion is stored as fat in the body. Drinking green coffee helps in maintaining the blood sugar levels and prevents sudden spikes. It will also help you stay energetic for a longer period.

    You can find green coffee in powdered form that just needs to be mixed with hot water and is ready to be consumed. It is usually enjoyed on its own without any additions but you may add a dash of honey or a sprinkle of cinnamon. Green coffee may benefit your weight loss routine in many ways but it cannot help you lose weight all by itself. A good weight loss plan needs to be a mix of a balanced diet and regular exercise but green coffee can definitely play a great supporting role and help you reach your goals.
