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
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
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
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
