10 Ways To Increase Testosterone Naturally

10 Ways To Increase Testosterone Naturally

Apr 03, 2014 by

Testosterone is the main sex hormone in males. It plays a critical role in libido, erectile function, mood, brain function, muscle mass, bone health, energy and even sleep. If you are experiencing any signs of aging or symptoms of low T, you might benefit from trying some natural ways to boost your own levels of testosterone. There are a lot of companies trying to scare men who do not have low T into taking testosterone therapy. Unfortunately, testosterone therapy has several negative side effects (like hair loss) and can increase cardiovascular risks for certain men. There are signs you shouldn’t take testosterone therapy that you should be aware of. Men who are overweight or have...
This Daily Habit Is Killing Your Brain Cells

This Daily Habit Is Killing Your Brain Cells

Mar 25, 2014 by

If you’re making this lifestyle mistake, and most Americans do, your home life may be killing your brain cells. And you may never get them back. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have found that skimping on sleep not only can fog the brain, it can actually lead to irreversible damage and mean death to the brain’s neurons. "In general, we've always assumed full recovery of cognition following short- and long-term sleep loss," says researcher Sigrid Veasey, M.D. "But some of the research in humans has shown that attention span and several other aspects of cognition may not normalize even with three days of recovery sleep, raising the question of lasting injury in the...
The Food That Helps You Sleep Better

The Food That Helps You Sleep Better

Put down that glass of warm milk. British researchers have found the food that really can help you sleep better and wake up more refreshed. A study at the University of Oxford shows that eating more fish is associated with better sleep. The omega-3 fatty acids in fish help the brain make melatonin, a hormone linked to deeper sleep. The research on children showed that kids with higher blood levels of the long-chain omega-3 DHA (the main omega-3 fatty acid found in the brain) are less restless in their sleep, don’t resist going to sleep and experience fewer sleep disturbances. The study showed that a daily supplement of omega-3 (as in a fish oil capsule) produced about an extra...

Top 10 Tips For Men To Get Better Sleep

Feb 20, 2014 by

Experts estimate that 50 to 70 million Americans are afflicted with chronic sleep disorders and sleep problems. As you age, you may find yourself waking up in the middle of the night to urinate or awaking much earlier in the morning than you would like to get up. You should get at least eight hours of sleep every night, but only 28 percent of adults in the U.S. are getting enough sleep. Getting the right amount of sleep is as important to your health as eating well and exercising. Sleep restores your body and allows the body to repair itself. Getting enough sleep supports your immune system so you can fight off health problems and diseases. Studies show that when animals are deprived of...
Signs That Testosterone Therapy Is Not for You

Signs That Testosterone Therapy Is Not for You

Feb 13, 2014 by

You may be bombarded with ads and articles that have you worried about low testosterone, or low T. Several drug companies are making a lot of money convincing men that testosterone gels, patches or injections can save the male sex life and masculinity. The truth is that testosterone therapy is not the answer for every man. In fact, there are several possible reasons that you should not take testosterone therapy, and some men do not actually receive any benefit from taking testosterone. There are health risks associated with testosterone therapy and those risks could outweigh the benefits of testosterone if you are not cautious about it. And there are many testosterone myths and...
Cancer Danger In Your Bed

Cancer Danger In Your Bed

Jan 28, 2014 by

If you make this nighttime mistake when you go to bed, you’re making your body more vulnerable to cancer. A study at the University of Chicago and the University of Louisville shows that “fragmented sleep,” going to bed at different times, skimping on sleep and frequently getting up during the night, hampers your immune system’s ability to kill cancer cells. Under these circumstances, the laboratory research demonstrates, cancer growth can speed up and tumors become more aggressive. "(Our) study offers biological plausibility to the epidemiological associations between perturbed sleep and cancer outcomes," says researcher David Gozal. "The take home message is to take care of...
Another Reason To Fear Flu Shots

Another Reason To Fear Flu Shots

Jan 22, 2014 by

As if the known dangers of flu shots and other vaccines weren’t enough to dissuade a rational person from being vaccinated, Swedish medical scientists have identified a previously unknown risk linked to a widely used vaccine. Pandemrix is a flu vaccine formulated in 2009 that is supposed to help the body protect itself against H1N1, known as swine flu. But when Swedish clinicians tested the vaccination results for links to immune-related and neurological conditions, they found the vaccine multiplies the risk that a young adult will develop narcolepsy. In an analysis of what is called a population-based prospective cohort study, the researchers sifted through data taken from Swedish...
The Secret Key To Easy Pain Relief

The Secret Key To Easy Pain Relief

Jan 15, 2014 by

Pain usually comes and goes. But when it comes and stays, you often end up with chronic pain -- the bane of conventional medicine, which is good at emergency and acute medical care but highly unsuccessful in dealing with chronic pain. There are many therapies available for pain reduction. But in the end, many people end up with a “pain management” regime. This should not be the case. My Personal Pain Experience As some of you may know by now, I got into natural healing practices because I suffered decades of chronic pain. This encompassed daily headaches and migraines, musculoskeletal pain, hip pain, muscle spasms, trigger points, and arthritis. I found that medicine could help...
Want A Better Brain? Weaken Its Connections

Want A Better Brain? Weaken Its Connections

Jan 11, 2014 by

Many sleep researchers believe that sleep helps your brain consolidate new information by strengthening the neuronal connections it makes during the day. But a pair of scientists thinks the opposite is true. They claim sleep improves brain health because it weakens the connections among brain cells. Two sleep scientists from the University of Wisconsin (UW) School of Medicine and Public Health say sleep is important because it weakens the connections among brain cells to save energy, avoid cellular stress and maintain the ability of neurons to respond selectively to stimuli. "Sleep is the price the brain must pay for learning and memory," says researcher Giulio Tononi, of the UW...

That Bad Habit That’s Keeping You Awake

In a surprising finding, researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, N.Y., have found that millions of insomniacs may be able to blame their inability to sleep on a daily habit that disrupts brain function. According to these scientists, smoking blocks brain circadian activity that makes it easier to fall asleep at night. "(Our) study has found a common pathway whereby cigarette smoke impacts both pulmonary and neurophysiological function. Further, the results suggest the possible therapeutic value of targeting this pathway with compounds that could improve both lung and brain functions in smokers," says researcher Irfan Rahman, Ph.D. "We envisage that our...
