Women's Health / Things to stop before getting pregnant
« Last post by ADMIN on November 28, 2017, 10:30:35 PM »
Are you looking forward to get pregnant and start a new family with your husband? If yes, then you need to take a few precautions to make sure that your pregnancy period goes well.

There are various things that you might be doing currently and you need to stop those activities immediately. Things like alcohol, cigarettes, and tobacco are extremely toxic, and they can prove too poisonous for you and the foetus. If you have any such bad habits and trying to conceive, then read the following points to know more about the ill-effects of such habits.

Quit Smoking Immediately

If you have been smoking cigarettes or tobacco in any other form, then stopping it before pregnancy is the most ideal thing to do. Smoking raises the chances for miscarriage, untimely birth and low-birth-weight. Furthermore, it also expands the likelihood of your child developing issues later on, such as asthma.

If you think that you can't stop, in that case, at least make an attempt to reduce the quantity of cigarettes you smoke, and take additional care to eat well. Your gynecologist can give you helpful tips on the most effective method to stop or decrease smoking cigarettes. Even if you're not a smoker, keep in mind that long exposure to second-hand smoke is likewise unsafe.

Important Note: Remember, it's important for you to find the most experienced gynec for your treatment, and for that you need to make a list of the best female gynecologists, and then get more information about them.

Say No To Alcohol

Pregnant moms are strongly advised to stay away from any form of liquor. If you drink, the foetus becomes more exposed to risks such as infections, birth defects, infant mortality, and growth inadequacies.

Infants born to women who frequently consume liquor may suffer from physical and intellectual damage, a health issue known as FAS (Fetal Alcohol Syndrome).

Since it isn't known whether there is a safe least amount of liquor which can be consumed without involving any risk, it is better to stay away from liquor completely during your pregnancy period. By deciding not to consume alcohol while you're pregnant, you increase the infant's chances of having a healthy life.

Use Medicines Cautiously

It's also crucial to practice caution when it comes to intake of medicines. Some generally utilised medications, including non recommended drugs as aspirin, and even other common medicines, have been connected to birth abnormalities. This is why it becomes so important to find the best gynec.

Men's Health / How to improve penis sensitivity with diet
« Last post by ADMIN on November 28, 2017, 10:24:02 PM »
Penis sensitivity is something most men simply take for granted. They know that when their penis is touched and stroked (whether by a partner or by themselves), their body experiences the tremendous sensations that make sex so exciting and enjoyable. Clearly, penis sensitivity is crucial for a man's sex life and he will want to be sure he maintains excellent penis health in order to help maintain a proper level of penis sensation. And it may be that some surprising factors - such as diet - can have an impact in this area.

Penis sensitivity

Why is the penis so prone to extreme sensations anyway? For the same reason that any part of the body demonstrates a tendency to react to stimulation: nerves. The neural network runs throughout the body. Nerve endings are near the surface of the skin and they pick up stimulation - a touch on the arm, a kick in the pants, a stroking of the penis - and send a signal back to the brain that something is going on. The brain sends a signal back so that a man turns around to the touch on the arm, yells "Ouch" to the kick in the pants, and sighs and moans at the stroking of the penis.

The penis tends to have many more nerve endings per square inch than other parts of the body. Because penis skin is so thin (especially when the penis is erect and the skin is stretched out), those nerve endings are more receptive to stimulation - thus the higher degree of penis sensitivity compared to other parts of the body.

Because of that sensitivity and the pleasure it affords, men really like to have their penis fondled. Sometimes, though, when a man is in pursuit of orgasm through penile stimulation, he may find himself in situations where the all-important friction is a little too much. Perhaps he is engaging in intercourse without appropriate lubrication or he's furiously masturbating with a grip that is extremely tight. Short term, these activities produce the desired result - a tremendous orgasm - but over time, they may "mute" the degree of sensitivity in the organ. When that happens, there's a somewhat "deadened" sensation that can interfere with a guy's sexual enjoyment.

Diet

So why should what a guy eats have any effect on how sensitive his penis is? Basically because what we eat has an effect on all parts of our bodies and lives - including the penis. Research has indicated that diets with vitamins B12 and E, as well as folate, help increase sensitivity all over. So if a man has reduced penis sensitivity, he may want to up his intake of these nutrients.

What foods are good for vitamins B12 and E and folate? Lots of dairy products contain B12, as do many kinds of seafood - and liver is especially high in B12. Meanwhile, spinach is a winner for both folate and vitamin E. Folate is also found in many other green vegetables, as well as citrus fruits. And vitamin E is abundant in many nuts (almonds, peanuts, pine nuts) and oils (olive oil, wheat germ oil, etc.), as well as trout and salmon.

Meanwhile, avoiding fatty foods is good for penis sensitivity. Cholesterol dampens nerve endings, so watch those high-fat foods, especially when eating red meat.

Diet can help maintain penis sensitivity, but more help may be required. That's where regularly using a first rate penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) comes in handy. Select a crème that contains L carnitine, an amino acid with neuroprotective properties and can help restore loss of sensation. It also helps if the crème contains L-arginine, an ingredient which helps produce the nitric oxide that keeps penis blood vessels open and flowing.

Men's Health / How to improve fertility in men
« Last post by ADMIN on November 28, 2017, 10:15:05 PM »
Every man is concerned with penis health, and that's why he goes out of his way to practice excellent penis care at every opportunity. But some men are doing it for a little something more - they are planning on getting a partner pregnant, and they need to ensure their penis health, and their fertility, is in tip-top shape.

There are several ways a man can help ensure his fertility is in great shape, and his penis health will naturally follow. Here's what he can start doing right now to help ensure the odds of pregnancy are as good as possible.

1) Visit the doctor. Though men usually hate the idea of going to the doctor, making sure everything is fine is always a good idea, especially if he's thinking about bringing new life into the world. The doctor can not only reassure him about penis health, but can also make certain his fertility is where it should be.

2) Don't go too tight. A man who wears tight underwear or those tight, skinny jeans is just asking for fertility trouble. Anything tight against the guy's equipment can raise the temperature down there, and sperm really need a particular temperature in order to thrive. If the temperature remains high for too long, the mobility of the little swimmers drops dramatically. So go with the roomy shorts, boxers and typical jeans.

3) Move the phone. Cell phones have been shown to emit small amounts of radiation. When carried in the front pocket and in close proximity to the junk, a guy runs the risk of lowered fertility, thanks to this slight radiation output. Keep the phone out of the pocket; if it must be carried, put it in a back pocket or shirt pocket instead.

4) Stop smoking. It's been said many times, but it must be said again: smoking is bad for every part of the body, affecting every cell in a negative way. That's also true of a man's sperm, which can be reduced by smoking. In addition, smoking is bad for erectile function and circulation, so it pays to stop now.

5) Drop the alcohol. Though there is no problem with the occasional beer or glass of wine, keep in mind that regular drinking can reduce the number of sperm as well as the mobility of the sperm that are left. When getting serious about increasing fertility, it behooves a man to lay off the alcohol.

6) Reconsider medications. Obviously, illicit drugs are out - they can wreak havoc on a man's sperm, erectile function and so much more. But a man should also look into his prescription medications, as some of those might not be conducive to fertility. It's a good idea to ask the doctor which drugs are okay to continue taking and which ones should be shelved until the pregnancy is confirmed.

7) Don't get too hot. Being in a sweltering situation isn't a good idea. This is the same principle as the tight underwear or jeans; a man wants to keep his balls as the right temperature in order to protect the sperm therein. That's why saunas, very hot baths and showers, hot tub dips and the like are a no-no during the time a man is trying to get a partner pregnant.

A man wants to make sure his erectile function is top-notch so that pregnancy is much easier to attain. A specially formulated penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help a man ensure this. Look for L-arginine, which helps keep the blood vessels open and working properly, as well as vitamins C and D, which can help improve tissue. Complete the crème with other nutrients, as well as Shea butter and vitamin E for the supple skin a man's partner will love to see.

Men's Health / Erectile dysfunction causes and treatment in men
« Last post by ADMIN on November 28, 2017, 10:12:44 PM »
Erectile dysfunction is a condition in which a male experience difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection for some desired time. It's also applicable to females when experiencing difficulty achieving or maintaining lubrication. This problem is not desirable as an inability to achieve or maintain an erection during sex makes sexual intercourse undesirable or totally impossible. Many people with ed often have a strong desire for sex with frequent urges and fantasies.

It's unusual for a man to be completely unable to attain an erection. In some cases, a man may experience complete erection during masturbation and partial erectile during sexual intercourse, but with insufficient firmness to allow penetration. The prevalence of ed is surprisingly high with age. The male erectile disorder is the most common sexual dysfunction in which men seek medical intervention while most females do not consider an absence of female arousal disorder as a problem.

Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

A number of physical and medical conditions contribute to erectile dysfunction. Many individuals and even medical personnel are unaware of the connection between these physical and medical conditions with ed. There are three main erectile dysfunction causes these are biological, psychological, and social and cultural contribution. We shall examine them one after the order.

Biological contributions: these are conditions which have a close relationship with the proper functioning of our body system. Neurological disease, urological diseases, endocrine problems and other conditions such as diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, thyroid disease, Peyronie's disease, arthritis, hypothyroidism, etc that affect the functioning of the central nervous system may directly reduce the sensitivity of the genital area, and thereby cause an erectile dysfunction. Vascular disease such as arterial insufficiency and venous breakage may cause erectile dysfunction by limiting the amount of blood that reaches the penis.

Psychological contribution: these are conditions associated with psychological problems such as anxiety, relationship problems, sexual attitude and upbringing, depression, financial and employment problem, psychiatric disorder, etc. researchers have shown that all the above psychological problems are directly connected with ed.

Social and cultural contributions: These deal with some sexual attitude learned early in childhood from families, religious, authorities, or other social gardens. Some negative experiences during childhood can cause erectile dysfunction. For example, in male victims of adult-child contact, the probability of having ed is about 3 times greater than if they have not previously had the contact. Likewise, men who admitted sexually assaulting women are 3 times as likely to complain of erectile dysfunction.

Symptoms of ED

The main symptom of erectile dysfunction is the inability to achieve and maintain a complete penile erection. There's also a special case of partial erection which is often considered as one of the symptoms of ed. Many individuals who complain of erectile dysfunction usually have urges and fantasies for sex.

Remedies for ED

Although ed cannot be cured completely, treatment is done based on the cause of the dysfunction. In recent year, a number of pharmacological and surgical techniques have been developed to treat erectile dysfunction. Some of which are oral medications, injection of a vasoactive substance directly into the penis, surgery, and vacuum device therapy. It's advisable to combine psychological therapies with medical treatment for maximum benefit.

There are three main treatments for ed. They are as follow:

- Non-invasion treatment- tablet medicines such as Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra. These tablet medicines are known to act as an inhibitor of phosphodiesterase-5.

- Treatments involving injection- penile injection such as Caverject. Many people consider using penile injection when

- Surgery- vascular surgery, penile prosthesis, and treatment of Peyronie's disease

Men's Health / How to recognize penis bumps and pilaris keratosis
« Last post by ADMIN on November 28, 2017, 10:09:34 PM »
What is keratosis pilaris?

Keratosis pilaris has one of those names that makes it sound far worse (and far more serious) than it actually is. The condition is more colloquially referred to as "chicken skin" or sometimes as having goosebumps. Both nicknames come from the physical appearance of the condition.

This common skin condition manifests as tiny bumps, usually quite a few spread out over an area of skin. The bumps are often mistaken for pimples, as they are very similar in appearance. The skin that surrounds the bumps is often dry and may sometimes be scaly. The bumps tend to get worse when weather is dry (and so are typically worse during the winter than in the summer).

But what are these bumps? They are clumps of a substance called keratin. This is a naturally-occurring protein which is useful in protecting the skin from outside substances and helps prevent it from getting infected. These keratin clumps typically form around hair follicles.

Penis bumps

Although keratosis pilaris most often occurs on the arms or legs, it can occur elsewhere on the body - including the penis. Though most often on the base of the shaft, it can spread upward and at times even reach the glans. It's also commonly found on the balls. (And just for the record, the buttocks are a fairly common place for the bumps as well.)

The good news is that keratosis pilaris is generally found in people in their teens and early 20s and in most cases disappears by the time a person turns 30. Further good news is that this is a very benign condition; there's no pain, itching or discomfort involved with it. Its only drawback is that some people consider it unattractive.

The bad news is that there's not really anything a man can do to make it disappear. The clumps tend to stay around until they are ready to go away. However, a guy can help to make them less obvious by treating the dry skin around them. Making sure that skin is well moisturized can disguise the penis bumps, usually to the point where a person must get up close to even notice them.

They also are not contagious, so there is no need to worry about passing them on to any potential partners.

Treating the penis bumps caused by keratosis pilaris can be made substantially easier by daily application of a top drawer penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Since the goal is to keep the penis skin well moisturized, the chosen crème needs to contain both a high-end emollient (such as Shea butter) and an effective, natural hydrating agent (such as vitamin E). This combination helps seal in moisturizing oils. The skin will also benefit if the crème contains alpha lipoic acid. A potent antioxidant, alpha lipoic acid strengthens penis skin by removing the threat of oxidative stress free radicals can pose.

Men's Health / How to increase testoterone level in men
« Last post by ADMIN on November 28, 2017, 10:00:06 PM »
If you feeling down due to low T or testosterone levels, you are not alone. It is a universal problem! I will explain why it is so later. I will also explain why boosting this male hormone is an anti-aging strategy that men should not overlook. But, take heart, there are a few natural ways to deal with this health problem.

Health Problems caused by Low T

But before going for the cures, let me explain why it important for men to attend quickly to low T levels. The simple reason is this - low T levels cause serious health problems and speeds up the aging process. Briefly, these health problems include:

reduced sex drive or libido.
increase in fat deposits especially over the midrib area
increase in body fat leading to diabetes and heart diseases.
decrease in muscle mass
decrease in bone density
increase in bone disorders like osteoporosis
decrease in overall body strength.
low energy levels sometimes leading to extreme fatigue
decrease in red blood cells and sperm count
setting in of infertility
Causes of Low T
Low T levels is often linked to the aging process. It is said that testosterone progressively decreases after the age of 30. While this is true, low T levels can also be linked to dietary habits, lifestyle, lack of exercise and poor nutrition. Lack of quality sleep is another contributing factor. These explains why there are aging males who prowl around as alpha males while many of their younger counterparts suffer obvious symptoms of low T.

Lately, there are also studies linking declining T levels in men to "testosterone destroying chemicals" that we are exposed to everyday. Examples of such chemicals include BHP from plastics and tin cans, parabens in food and toiletries and phthalates in plastic and perfumes.

A Holistic Approach

It is clear that maintaining healthy testosterone levels for aging males is challenging. As such, a holistic approach involving the right nutrition, the right type of exercises, supplements, quality sleep and reduced exposure to suspected harmful chemicals is the best way to deal with this man's health problem.

A proper nutritional plan should include types of foods to avoid and also those that are helpful for boosting testosterone. The common foods to reduce or avoid include those that mimic the female hormone estrogen - like soya and flaxseed. High-sugar beverages that cause body fats are also bad. Beneficial foods for boosting testosterone include celery, avocados, almonds; and grass-feed, hormone-free red meat.

A natural, holistic approach would be the ideal way to deal with the problem. It should be part of your anti-aging efforts to sustain your good health and ideal lifestyle. Also, this could help you avoid expensive medical treatments which often have unexpected side effects

Food / How to boost your immune system
« Last post by ADMIN on November 25, 2017, 06:07:02 PM »
 The immune system consists of cells, tissues and organs that form a network working together to wade off infections (invaders). These invaders include bacteria, parasites, viruses and fungi. Many infections are linked with these bad bugs. The immune system help fight off the infections.

 Though not visible to our eyes our immune system is always launching attacks on bacteria and viruses preventing them from entering the cells.

Immune response functions on their own and usually do not need aid to maintain these roles.  Some practices are however known to enhance optimum performance. They are outlined below:
Hygiene is usually the first level of defence to keep these bad bugs that cause infections afar off. Maintaining good personal hygiene is very important if you must stop their menace. This not only keeps you healthy but also protects the people around you. The following hygiene practices will be helpful:
Hand washing
Regular hand-washing using soap and water or with sanitizers , washing before cooking, before eating and after using the rest room. The world health organisation calls this the five moments of hand washing.
Good cough and sneezing etiquette
Your nose and mouth should be covered with tissue paper whenever you cough or sneeze. This is particularly important in diseases transmitted by aerosols like tuberculosis. This helps reduce cross infection.
Good Wound Etiquette
Avoid leaving wounds and cuts open. Leaving it open can lead to introduction of infections and further worsen your immunity. Avoid touching healing wounds and squeezing of pimples to prevent introduction of infections as well.  And most importantly don’t forget to seek medical attention. Avoid self-medication when it comes to wounds and cuts as well as other health issues.
Adequate Immunisation or Vaccination
So many serious illnesses can be prevented with vaccination. Forget the lies they’re trying to sell to discourage vaccination. This is one step that can fortify your immune system and help them fight off invaders. Of particular importance is immunization of children and pregnant women as they are considered the vulnerable age group. Immunize children based on doctors’ national guidelines. Usually there is a national immunization schedule in every country that prescribes the normal routine vaccination every child or individual is supposed to obtain. Adults travelling to other countries or exposed to certain risks by virtue of occupational exposure are require to take some booster doses of some vaccines to help foster immune function. Pregnant woman are mandated to complete tetanus toxoid immunization  during pregnancy to help prevent tetanus in the baby and the mother.

Ensure Food Safety
Food stored or prepared under unhygienic processes can become a poison. Eating contaminated foods can cause life threatening medical problems. Ensure food safety from farm to fork. The gastrointestinal tract which house our digestive functions is the centre of immunity. A proper gut is likened to a proper and functional immune system. Separate raw and cooked food, wash food properly before preparation, store food in adequate temperature and wash hands before cooking and after using the restroom. Buy meats from healthy abattoirs.


Don’t travel to places with Current epidemic
Observe safety measures before travelling to certain places. Don’t evade medical screening as they are in place for your own good. Caucasians who are visiting Africa for the first time should be mindful of the black man’s disease called malaria. African dwellers have already built immunity that can withstand this unlike first time visitors from non-endemic areas. These visitors when infected with malaria usually culminate into fatal outcomes. Certain vaccines are required before international travel, make sure you reach your doctor and attain all necessary fitness tests before embarking on your journey.

Good Food choices
Including more vegetables and fruits in your diet, is one sure way of boosting your immunity. Like I said earlier the gut is the seat of immunity and what we eat directly or indirectly affects our immunity, so in your choice of what to eat make more healthy choices Avoid building on your bad cholesterol with junk foods and unhealthy diets. Avoid food prepared under unsanitary conditions and contaminated with faeces. What enters your mouth as food is actually very important.


Finally, you have the secrets that can boost your immunity and make you stay strong. Nothing fortifies the immune system like healthy practices.
