Watch What Goes Into Your MouthMESSAGE IN THE FAMILY TREEClose on the heels of the news that sugar is addictive comes a second body blow – your bad eating is being passed on to your children through your genes. Researchers at the Baker 101 Heart and Diabetes Institute found that human cells have the ability to “remember’ and can replicate the effects of a poor diet on a body for weeks, months, and even generations. According to lead researcher Prof Assam EI-Osta: “We now know that chocolate bar you had this morning can have very acute effects, this is what we refer to as the burden of memory.” ‘The changes initiated by diet create a kind of ghost that lives within our genes, and that these epigenetic changes remember the effects the study showed that very specific molecular events occur after the consumption of high glucose food causing chemical changes to people’s genetic controls. These changes continue beyond the meal itself, and have the ability to alter natural metabolic responses to diet. The good news – the flip is true as well: By having a good diet, you can pass on a healthy epigenome to your children.

Nutritional Supplements for Male Health

Nutritional Supplements for Male Health[EXTRACT]
Walking down the pharmacy aisle looking for a simple nutritional supplement for male health can be an intimidating experience these days. There are literally hundreds of bottles professing various health benefits. A good bit of this is in response to our “fast food” society looking for instant gratification and hopping on provocative claims for a quick answer to male health by simply swallowing a cure.Health is more than curing and preventing diseases. The ultimate goal is optimal male health in all aspects – strength, endurance, high-level mental performance, disease prevention, living pain-free and longevity. All should be considered when shopping for nutritional supplements.But supplements are just that – a supplement to a healthful approach toward living. Only when one is not able to naturally provide the body with what it needs to function properly or if a condition does occur, should one look to attain male health through herbs, vitamins or supplements.The guidelines for healthy living are quite simple. Proper nutrition, clean air and drinking water, adequate sleep, sufficient exercise or activity, and avoiding stress are the cornerstones for ultimate male health. Nutrition plays a huge role, and simply adhering to a diet rich in dark green leafy vegetables, fruits, whole-grains, and low-fat food is one of the best preventive measures against heart diseases, stroke and diabetes.When unusual health circumstances do arise, using nutritional supplements to assist the body’s natural healing mechanism can be a highly effective approach. But buyer beware! Much of the information available on these supplements is actually produced by the manufacturers themselves, hardly an impartial recommendation. Here are three tips in considering the best nutritional supplements for male health:Listen to your body. Just as you were aware of the condition you were seeking to cure, be aware of any signs your body may be giving you that the nutritional supplement is not working to reach the desired goals or worse yet, is producing negative side effects. Upset stomach and skin rashes are two most common complaints. Stop using the supplement and reassess.Proceed with caution. The FDA does not regulate nutritional supplements for male health under the same guidelines as prescription medications. The only watchdog over your intake is you. Supplements and prescription drugs both can help you to feel better and avoid common ailments, and both are readily available at the local drug store. However one thing the supplement is missing that the prescription drug is not is the FDA-approved document providing all the information on how to take the prescription safely, identify its negative side effects, and avoid potentially dangerous interactions with other drugs.Be weary of overdoses. Large amounts of water-soluble vitamins, such as B12, are not so much of a concern because your body can easily excrete the excess. But vitamins A, D, E and K which might be sought out in managing chronic liver diseases or any other number of ailments are known as fat-soluble vitamins and are stored in organs and tissues. The body cannot easily compensate for an overage resulting in a number of negative side effects such joint pain, dry skin, nausea, and depression. Keep it within safe guidelines – for men that is 3,000 mcg of vitamin A, 2,000 IU vitamin D, and 1,000 mg of vitamin E per day.All in all, taking nutritional supplements for male health should be part of a comprehensive approach to overall health. Seek regular guidance from a qualified naturopathic physician or holistically oriented medical doctor to ensure you are on the right path and to safely recommend supplements or perscriptions should the need arise. And keep your eye on the prize — optimal health and long life.

Men’s Health and Male Aging Syndrome

Men’s Health and Male Aging Syndrome[EXTRACT]
Men’s Health and Aging Male SyndromeWhat is Aging Male Syndrome? This syndrome that occurs to men between the approximate ages of 35 and 65 is a collection of symptoms that occur due to a decline in production of testosterone in a man’s body. Low testosterone levels in males are often associated with symptoms of aging and are referred to as andropause or male menopause.Testosterone is an important anabolic hormone in men, as it plays important roles in maintaining both physical and mental health. The decline of testosterone is normal in healthy males as they age. However, when hormone levels drop, some of the commonly exhibited symptoms include:• Weight gain
• Difficulty sleeping
• Loss of sex drive/Erection problems
• Difficulties with memory/concentration
• Feeling irritable/angry/nervousness
• Loss of motivation
• Lower self-confidence
• Tiredness/Loss of energy
• Muscle loss/Bone density decreases
• Depression/Mood swings
• Increased urination
• Hair lossAs testosterone levels decrease, so does high density lipoproteins with an increase in triglycerides. The visceral fat cells are the most insulin resistant cells in the human body. They have excess hormone binding receptors for cortisol and androgens and decreased receptors for insulin. The cortisol and insulin levels rise while progesterone, growth hormone and testosterone decline. The visceral fat cell with its increased receptors, blood supply and innervations, begins to collect more fat in the form of triglycerides. If this is not interrupted with natural hormone balancing, it will lead to abdominal obesity, diabetes and high cholesterol, which is known as metabolic syndrome.Lowered testosterone is associated with an increase in general inflammation and C Reactive Protein levels which is a red flag when it comes to assessing risk of cardiovascular events such as stroke or infarction.One vital issue in regards to the overall health of men is the exposure to estrogens from numerous sources. They are found in food, hygiene products and even in the air (from chemical sprays). This exposure as well as other issues can lead to an increase in the conversion of androgens to estrogens. Aromatase, an enzyme found in the liver, is responsible for this conversion. The more this occurs, the lesser the amount of testosterone in the body. Estrogen dominance, then, can lead to multiple long-term and devastating health issues for men, such as enlarged prostate and prostate cancer.The Allopathic method of testosterone replacement therapy has not been proven to be particularly effective. Some side effects may include:- Elevated hemoglobin (above normal range)
– Bladder and urination problems
– Adverse liver changes
– Sleep apnea
– Breast tenderness and swelling
– Testicular atrophy
– Fluid retention
– Increased body hairIn addition, testosterone replacement therapy has been suggested as a potential factor involved with increased risk of prostate cancer.What can you do?A healthy diet, stress management and active lifestyle are of utmost importance, along with acupuncture and chiropractic adjustments which can have a dramatic effect on Aging Male Syndrome. Nutritional supplements can help to inhibit the activity of the aromatase enzyme.Some nutritional tips include Boron, a trace mineral, with a role in cell membrane integrity, bone health, and proper brain function. Its’ benefits have anti-aging properties, prevents bone thinning, enhances testosterone levels, improves memory and eye-hand coordination and concentration, improves allergy symptoms and fungal infections as well as lowering blood lipid levels. Important sources include: apricots, apples, oranges, almonds, red grapes, pear, plum, prunes, kiwi, dates, vegetables, soybeans and nuts, chickpeas, hazelnuts, currants, peanut butter, red kidney beans, tomato, lentils, olive, onion, potato, wine and beer.Researchers found: higher levels of Selenium reduce improper blood-sugar metabolism, consuming the most calcium, in food, lead to a 25% less likely death rate and those exposed to high levels of sunlight in their job are less likely to develop kidney cancer.Other supplements may include: Arginine, Prostate support, Zinc, Co-Q-10, multi-mineral, Vitamin D, homeopathic and herbal remedies for male health, omega-3s and green tea.Tests to consider:Complete blood analysis should be monitored on a regular basis, including a PSA. Those experiencing symptoms like these above, would benefit from having testosterone levels tested (via blood test), and performed in the morning when the testes release more testosterone. Subsequent testing should be done at about the same time in the morning to ensure consistent results.In addition, a Salivary Hormone Test is crucial to check to see if one’s hormones are balanced.Why is Saliva testing truly superior to serum for accurately monitoring transdermal (topically applied) hormones?Hormone levels in saliva accurately represent the amount of hormone delivered to receptors in the body, unlike serum which may not be delivered to the receptors, therefore, saliva is a reflection of the active hormone levels of the body.The majority of hormones in the blood exist in 1 of 2 forms: free and biologically active (5%) or protein bound (95%). Saliva measures the free bio-available hormone levels in the body, while serum measures only the protein bound non-available hormone levels. Therefore, serum is a much less accurate measurement than that of saliva when assessing functional hormone levels.A Comprehensive panel includes: 4 Cortisols, DHEA, Progesterone, Testosterone and Estrogen. With these levels, one can determine the most optimal prescription program.

[EXTRACT]Reduce Prostate Pain With a Prostate Milking, Learn How With These Easy Tips[EXTRACT]
Prostate milking is becoming more common in many countries for both pleasure and male health benefits and is accomplished by the massage of the male prostate gland. This natural procedure helps to remove the excess amount of seminal fluids are collected in the prostate. This excess fluid build up can lead to added pressure and inflammation of the prostate and expelling the excess fluid may help those who suffer from prostate pain.Medical practitioners commonly use this treatment as well for men that suffer from benign prostatic hyperplasia also called BPH, and chronic prostatitis. While this treatment is beneficial for the above problems, men with a prostate infection must avoid this activity or run the risk of making the infection much worse.Having the prostate milked for health purposes is usually done internally by inserting a lubricated finger a few inches into the anus. The medical practitioner will put on a latex glove and adds some lubricant prior to starting. Usually an orgasm is reached without any stimulation to the genitals when this type of activity is performed in a medical setting. Your medical practitioner will insert his gloved finger slowly into your rectum and massage the sensitive anal lining close to the prostate with limited pressure. For some men, this will be a pleasurable experience.If this gland is aroused in a sexual manner which may happen accidentally, and it is full of seminal fluids, the prostate may contract and empty the same way as if it were ejaculated but without the penis being stimulated. This can be a very unusual and unique experience that more and more men are looking for who want to naturally improve prostate health.While the treatment might not sound appealing for all men, it can be possibly beneficial for those who do not want to take excess medications or supplements that can be expensive and have unwanted side effects.

Tone Down the Exercise for Penis Health

Tone Down the Exercise for Penis Health[EXTRACT]
Many experts equate a greater degree of physical activity with heightened sexuality in men. Because of the very real benefits associated with exercise and physical activity, and how those benefits often translate in terms of penis health and sexual fun, doctors often assume that the more exercise, the more sex drive a man is going to have. But now a new study may put the brakes on that idea – at least a little bit.The study Published in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, the study is entitled “Endurance Exercise Training and Male Sexual Libido,” an unusually straightforward title for a medical journal. The stated purpose of this trial is to “study the associations between aspects of endurance exercise training and the sexual libido in healthy men using a cross-sectional online survey study design.”What that means is that the scientists involved (who hail from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill) developed an online survey that would help determine the physical fitness, exercise routines and libido of participants. More than 1,000 men were surveyed, which is a respectable number but a little on the small side for a study meant to have meaning for half the population.Previous studies Previous studies have measured testosterone activity in men and its relationship to exercise. These studies support the idea that a moderate amount of exercise creates more testosterone (which in turn ratchets up the sex drive); they have also suggested that long and grueling workouts can tend to erase the increase in testosterone and may contribute to a decrease in testosterone (and, subsequently, in sex drive).Instead of looking at testosterone changes, this study decided to ask men directly about their sex drives. The questions asked men about not only how often they had sex but how often they thought about sex, and how intense their thoughts were, and the like.After taking into consideration all pertinent factors (age, overall health, etc.), a pattern emerged. Those men whose exercise routines were on the moderate or light side in terms of intensity and/or duration tended to have moderate or high sex drives. And men who worked out like maniacs, pushing themselves to the limit, tended to have low sex drives.Limitations As mentioned earlier, the number of participants is a little small to be able to draw any solid conclusions. In addition, these are all men who volunteered to take the survey, which is to some degree intrusive; there could theoretically be different results if those who declined to take the survey had answered the questions.Perhaps more problematic is that measuring sex drive in a self-reported manner presents challenges. Despite efforts to quantify it, one man’s interpretation of how intense their sex drive is may vary from another’s. And even with an anonymous survey, it’s very easy for a man to “cheat” a little, especially when admitting to how often he has had sex or thinks about it.Still, the results do raise interesting points. If a man pushes himself during his workouts and exercise routines and does find that he has a decreased sex drive, he might want to take his exercise intensity down a few notches and see if there is a difference. Or he may want to talk to his doctor to see what other alternatives he could consider.Other penis health tips don’t necessarily involve exercise. For example, using a top flight penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) to maintain overall penis health can be a plus when it comes to sex. Be sure to use a crème with L-arginine, which helps the body produce ingredients that keep penile blood vessels open and receptive. It’s also wise to use a crème with acetyl L carnitine, a neuroprotective ingredient that helps guard against loss of sensation in the penis.
