In this post I am discussing how I will tie the various articles on this site together. When I say together I mean how I used or considered the various supplements, exercise regimens, alternative medicine techniques etc. in my lifestyle regimen. To discuss this I will have to use a timeline of my life beginning in the late 1980’s when I was in my 30’s.
Once you have been diagnosed with a low testosterone condition, what can you do about it? To many, the obvious choice would seem to be testosterone replacement therapy, or TRT. This type of treatment is administered by a physician, and may take many forms. You could use patches, which can irritate the skin, or creams, which must be carefully protected from touch by others. It could also entail a patch on your gum, which could be irritating, implants under the skin of your buttocks, or periodic injections.
More than 200 million Americans consistently devour food items made from wheat. Therefore, more than 100 million of them experience some type of unfriendly well-being impact; going from minor rashes and high glucose to the ugly stomach swells that preventive cardiologist William Davis calls “wheat bellies.” According to Dr. Davis, that overabundance of fat has nothing to do with intemperance, sloth, or an excessive amount of margarine: It’s because of the entire range of grain wraps we have for lunch.
As men age, one of their primary concerns is their prostate. An enlarged prostate, known medically as benign prostate hyperplasia, can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms, including incontinence, painful urination, and an increased risk of urinary tract infections. The National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Clearinghouse has reported that over half of all men between the ages of sixty and seventy years of age suffer from this condition. Saw palmetto, a plant extract, is useful in improving these symptoms. Saw palmetto is available over the counter, with no side effects other than the occasional upset stomach. Small price to pay for relief.
As mentioned earlier, electrical muscular stimulation (EMS) causes pain relief by blocking the pain transmissions. To understand this concept, just imagine that your brain gets the signal from your lower back nerve receptors that there is a problem in your back. Just when your brain is hearing this complaint, the electrical stimulations applied close to those pain receptors start to produce high noises and thus, your brain is unable to hear the problem of your low back pain receptors. As it hears nothing, hence you perceive no pain.
Turning 60 is one of the major milestones in anyone’s life. It is that wonderful state of transition where you’ve had a good look at life, lived it, loved it, experienced the highs and lows and become the person you are, and yet there’s still a lot to look forward to. As you move closer…
So, what, exactly, are the benefits of the paleo diet? Firstly, I have found it much easier to maintain a healthy weight or even lose unwanted pounds. This is because I avoid carbohydrates. Limiting my intake of carbs leads to a corresponding lowering of body fat, as well as more efficient use of the insulin my body produces. Fewer carbs mean less insulin produced. And lowering my carb intake leads to a lower chance of my developing type 2 diabetes.
Carb/starch blockers are a form of dietary supplement that contain white kidney bean extracts. These extracts help block the amount of carbohydrates that your body absorbs. By reducing the amount of carbs absorbed they reduce your body’s whole day caloric intake. Many people feel that these supplements are great for people who can no resist the urge of consuming carbs/starches. Some advocates even suggest that these pills are good for diabetics, since they lower the glycemic index of the food consumed by the user.

Coconut oil, or copra oil, as it is sometimes called, is extracted from the kernel, or meat, of mature coconuts. It has a high fat content, but it is rather slow to oxidize, making it highly resistant to becoming rancid. Coconut oil, stored at temperatures of 75 degrees, will remain fresh and usable for up to six months.
