Our healthcare system is facing unprecedented challenges with the recent pandemic of coronavirus and ensuing SARS Cov2, or COVID-19, and it is vital healthcare providers keep their patients active and healthy so as to not over burden a vulnerable system.

Sleep is back, and so is your love life.

Parents may blame raging hormones for turbulent teenage behavior. But what about harnessing the power of these hormones themselves? For those aged 40 or over, hormones can promote a good night’s sleep and increase intimacy levels. Hormones: the great equalizer Hormones are chemical messengers in our bodies that keep tabs on our internal functions and make sure our organs are working properly. Women know that even a slight change in their estrogen, testosterone or progesterone levels can result in symptoms such as low energy, moodiness, food cravings, loss of libido and weight gain. Men with low testosterone levels may also experience these symptoms, though TV commercials do their best to blame the symptoms on a certain part of their anatomy instead, leading to reduced awareness. So, what should you address first: your lack of sleep? Or low intimacy levels? In actual fact, the two are linked. Dr. Rachel Needle
