Let’s face it: cortisol gets a bad rap these days. “I have high cortisol.” “I have low cortisol.” “My cortisol is out-of-whack.” You’ve no doubt heard this all before or said it yourself. The human body is unable to differentiate between legitimate, perceived, positive or negative stress. That means worrying and excitement casts the same stress hormone response as an actual stressor. What is cortisol? Cortisol is popularly known as “the stress hormone” and is released by the adrenal glands […]
As we head into the summer months, everyone is excited for a little extra Vitamin D. Despite your tan skin, you may not be getting enough of the “sunshine vitamin”. According to a study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Vitamin D levels in Americans have significantly declined in the past few decades. In fact, in the United States, 41% of the total population are Vitamin D deficient. The body does produce high amounts of Vitamin D when skin is directly exposed […]

If You’re Experiencing These Symptoms Libido issues can come from a variety of things such as stress or a man’s testosterone levels. Physicians now have a validated questionnaire called the ADAM questionnaire that they use to help evaluate patients if they suspect a testosterone deficiency. ADAM stands for “androgen deficiency in the aging male.” If you answer “yes” to question […]
HCG – HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, and it is a natural hormone that has been found to mimic the effects of Luteinizing Hormone (LH) in males. LH plays a vital role in the synthesis and secretion of testosterone. When HCG is utilized to treat male infertility or hypogonadism, it gets to work on mimicking the effects of LH. This, in turn, means that it stimulates the natural production of testosterone from within the testes. HCG injections are approved […]
Over-the-counter medications are available for a wide variety of ailments such as common colds and sore throats. Typically they are easy to come by and inexpensive. So, what about over-the-counter erectile dysfunction medications and supplements? Over-the-counter supplements are not regulated by the FDA (Food & Drug Administration). Many of these products contain other chemicals, some of which have not been tested. It is important to remember that even if products are described as “natural” or as an “herbal remedy” on […]
Starting at around the age of 30, human growth hormone production starts declining for both men and women. Sermorelin therapy intends to replace this lost HGH with the use of a compound called Sermorelin acetate. Sermorelin is not HGH, it is a growth hormone secretagogues (GSHs) which is a class of molecules that stimulates the secretion of GH from the pituitary gland. Sermorelin therapy is a gradual anti-aging therapy that can take a few months before the effects start to […]
Studies indicate up to 75% of men who have type 2 diabetes experience some form of erectile dysfunction and it usually occurs 10 to 15 years earlier than men who do not have diabetes.

In particular, erectile dysfunction is the most common presentation in the presence of nerve damage due to impaired […]

Wave therapy can help them and diabetic men whose condition contributes to their ED. It has also been used […]

It’s hard to argue against an erectile dysfunction treatment that is potentially disease modifying, is noninvasive, and seems to do no harm. The treatment, low- intensity shock wave therapy, has yet to earn the FDA’s approval but is widely used in other countries. Early results from ongoing U.S. trials are promising. A shock wave is a wave of energy that travels faster than the speed of sound. Urologists commonly apply the energy, during shock wave lithotripsy to break up kidney […]
