New, Natural ED Treatment
There is a new natural therapy for erectile dysfunction. That comes as a big surprise to most patients who suffer from ED — because they’ve been told again and again their only solution is a Big Pharma booster like Viagra, or that they should just accept their condition as a part of aging. Common ED Beliefs ED has become so common, it’s the accepted norm in men of “a certain age.” It now affects 30 million men in America. But it shouldn’t. Age is not the issue. It’s the most natural thing in the world to have sex well into your 70s and 80s. ED Causes Your doctor has probably told ...

3 of My Favorite Natural Sex Boosters
Let’s talk about the “S” word. New research shows that sex can help keep your mind sharp as tack as you grow older — and I’m not surprised. Sex can be a great tool for protecting or improving your health Researchers in the U.K. recently tested more than 6,800 people between the ages of 50 and 89. Those with active sex lives scored an amazing 23% higher on cognitive word tests than those with inactive sex lives.1 That’s because your sex hormones are linked to your brain’s reward center. And reward processing plays a fundamental role in motivation, learning and cognition —...

Venus and Mars Hormones
Men are from Mars. Women are from Venus. This one book from best-selling author John Gray built a publishing empire. Even if you’ve never read it, I’m sure you’ve heard of it. Released in 1993, this book went on to sell more than 50 million copies and is considered the “highest ranked work of non-fiction of the 1990s.” When I read the book years ago, I remember the clarity it brought to relationships, and how we can make them stronger and more meaningful. Today, John Gray has added an anti-aging component to his books and lectures, and that’s why I’m writing to you today. Just last...

Nutrients For Your Manhood
I treat adults of all ages at my wellness clinic and, at some point during our consultations, we usually talk about the ‘S’ word. The advice in today’s letter is for men – but if you’re a woman, just imagine you’re listening in so you can share it with the man in your life. First of all, from a wellness point of view, I tell my patients: “You should have sex as often as you can, for as long as you live.” Three to four times a week would be ideal. Age should not be an issue. It’s the most natural thing in the world to have sex well into your 70s and 80s.1 In fact, sex h...

Lose Weight Eat More Fiber!
Happy New Year to you and your family and loved ones. Are you all talking about your New Year’s resolutions? Weight loss seems to be on the top of everyone’s list. One of the most-asked questions I get at my wellness center is from patients wanting to know easy ways to keep those extra few pounds from sneaking up on them during the year. The first thing I tell them to do always catches people off guard: You can stop fat fast by eating “slow” moving fiber. Foods with fiber lengthen the time it takes your stomach to empty after a meal. This slows down the release and absorption of sugar in your blood...

Director's Message: Herbal Products: Be an Informed Consumer
As I mentioned in my January 2013 Director’s message, many visitors to the NCCAM website seek information about herbal products, such as evening primrose oil, St. John’s wort, fenugreek, echinacea, and aloe vera. And, while some herbs have had more research, others have had very little. This not only means we may be unaware of whether the herb has any potential benefits, it also means that we may know very little about potential harms, such as herb-drug interactions.
