Here’s Why Sunscreen is Not Enough to Protect You This Summer

The Gershwin brothers wrote many classic songs and one of the best-loved began with the familiar refrain: "Summertime, and the livin' is easy." However, many people who love being outdoors during the summertime have first-hand and often painful experience that while the living might be easy, the damage that the lucky 'ol sun can do to one's skin is not a pretty sight, even if the fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high! For many years, dermatologists and cosmetics companies have strongly urged all sun-worshippers to just say no to these rays. Anyone who loves outdoor activities that are enjoyed during the spring and summer has lathered on the sunscreen, worn those floppy hats and cautiously avoided direct sunlight. As it turns out, there are other factors besides the sun that might be damaging one's skin. It's Not Just the Sun "The sun is not the only culprit for

How Balancing Hormones Can Help You Lose Weight and Keep it Off

The trajectory of worldwide obesity rates has been on a steady climb for more than 30 years. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the federal agency charged with tracking the incidence of disease in America, more than 35 percent of U.S. adults are clinically obese. This translates to more than 80 million people. Obesity-related medical conditions include heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer and these are some of the leading causes of preventable deaths. Plus, the cost of obesity is staggering. The CDC estimated the annual medical costs of obesity in the U.S. was $147 billion and the medical costs for people who are obese were $1,429 higher than those of normal weight. Sterile statistics often obscure the human misery of obesity. Being chronically overweight takes a serious toll on the health and happiness of those it affects. Just ask Brandy Prince,

That Chest Pain Could Mean Heart Attack or Stroke. Here’s How Testosterone May Lower Your Risk.

The statistics about heart disease are ominous. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the federal agency charged with monitoring health trends in the United States, about 610,000 people die of heart disease in this country every year that’s one in every four deaths. Further, heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, but it affects men more than women. And finally, every year about 735,000 Americans experience the pain and life-threatening trauma of a heart attack. While heart disease has many causes – from genetics to diet and lifestyle – low testosterone in men has also been recognized as a culprit. To help explain how this is possible and how this might be avoided, Terri DeNeui, (founder of Hormonal Health, Wellness and Aesthetic Centers) was asked for her thoughts on this very serious medical condition. The

How Does Platelet Rich Plasma Help Ballplayers Stay in the Game

With the start of another Major League Baseball season, one thing is certain: Not all of the players who took the field on opening day will be in the lineup come October. Why? The repetitive stress of throwing a baseball and swinging a bat every day causes injuries, especially among the more veteran (i.e. older) players.   The doctors and trainers of baseball players – especially those who are paid large salaries to be on the field every day – discovered a treatment about 10 years ago which speeds up the healing process. It is called platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy and it has been used for the rehab of many professional athletes, including NBA star Kobe Bryant, PGA golfer Tiger Woods and MLB player Alex Rodriquez. This therapy has also become popular for those non-professional, “weekend warrior” athletes who might over-do

Why a New U.S. Government Study Supports Treating Age-Related Sexual Dysfunction for Low Testosterone in Men

Dangerous side-effects such as blindness have also been reported by users of these sexual enhancement drugs.   One of many articles in the New York Times noted that erectile dysfunction (ED) is a problem that afflicts about a third of men in their 50s and half of men in their 60s. This condition affects tens of millions of men and it is but one of several sexual maladies. According to the article, “for couples on a limited budget, the cost of drugs like Viagra or Cialis, at about $15 a pill, and not covered by most private and federal insurance plans, can be prohibitive to use on a regular basis.” Dangerous side-effects such as blindness have also been reported by users of these sexual enhancement drugs. What if there was another way to treat sexual dysfunction in older men? Research from U.S. government-sponsored testosterone

Hair Today. Gone Tomorrow.

Smarter Hair Loss Treatment A human scalp has about 100,000 hairs and it’s not unusual to lose a few of these every day. However, when there are more and more lost hairs found in the shower or in the brush every day, men and women start to worry about a permanent loss of hair. Every year, billions of dollars are spent on hair treatments and restoration products and, while this might make the user feel better about the problem, most of these treatments do not treat the root cause. Terri Suresh DeNeui, an acute care nurse practitioner and the founder of Hormonal Health, Wellness and Aesthetic Centers, has treated thousands of patients who have lost or are losing their hair and she has some insights about this process and how it might be reversed. What are the Factors Which Can Cause Hair Loss? “There are several reasons

Smoothing Out Those Wrinkles Using One’s Own Blood

For generations, well-meaning mothers, fathers and even grandparents have dispensed little nuggets of wisdom which are offered as a way to help a young person gain a little advantage over their contemporaries. One of these “bon mots” is a classic bit of self-help:  “you never get a second chance to make a good first impression.” This advice is even more relevant for adults than it is to children and, for better or worse, the part of the body which leads to many first impressions is the face. It suggests age, health, vitality, attractiveness and beauty. While this might seem to be superficial – everyone knows it’s what’s “inside” that makes a person special – the fact remains that a person’s face is the primary source of any first impression. So, what happens when one meets a new acquaintance and their face looks tired, gray and wrinkled? It may not be

Depression: Why Many New Mothers Will be Very Sad This Valentine’s Day

No matter how many hearts and flowers are delivered on Valentine’s Day, many young mothers will not be smiling. For reasons that they likely don’t understand, they are depressed and can’t seem to climb out of a very deep and dark abyss.   According to a recent report from the United States Preventative Services Task Force and reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association, about 10 percent of new mothers experience clinical depression which can be “lasting and serious.” This federal task force has recommended that women who have recently given birth be screened for depression.While this mandate for screening has been applauded by many healthcare providers, some have more questions about the treatment which can be prescribed from this diagnosis.“What are they going to do when they determine the woman is depressed?” asked Terri DeNeui, Founder of EVEXIAS Medical Centers.Therein lies

Can’t Sleep?? Try this remedy! Renee Walls, MS Nutrition, CNW

I have struggled with waking up in the middle of the night between 2:00 am and 3:00 am for as far back as my early twenties.   AUTHOR Terri DeNeui, DNP, APRN, ACNP-BC  CATEGORY Hair Transplant SOCIAL @EVEXIASMEDICAL Back then you just think it's the crazy schedule and in my thirties I figured it was having babies, but when you hit your forties and realize you're not going to make it without sleep - you start to pay closer attention. I have low blood sugar issues and I will often wake in the middle of the night if I go to bed not eating something well balanced.  Adrenal and stress is also a factor since stress hormones will initiate low blood sugar.  The most overlooked issue related to waking in the middle of the night is the liver.
