Male Menopause: Myth or Reality?

Male Menopause

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

October 15, 2018

  • The difference between low testosterone and male menopause
  • Is low T a lifestyle choice?
  • Grab control of the hormone that makes you manly

There’s a good reason guys are so crazy about girls when they’re in their teens and twenties. At these ages, testosterone levels are practically raging out of control. But once you hit 30, levels begin to drop by as much as 2% each year.

This makes male menopause a very real threat to aging men. (You might also hear this condition referred to as andropause or hypogonadism.)

Support a Healthy Heart, Blood Pressure,
Cholesterol, Fat-Burning, and More!

New research supported by the National Institutes of Health revealed a chemical flaw in this near-miraculous nutrient. Human studies show we just can't absorb it. No matter how much you take...you may as well be flushing it down the toilet!

But the benefits of resveratrol – and the amazing promise of genetic rewriting – were too incredible to ignore. That's why researchers kept looking… until they found a natural resveratrol "cousin."

But these days, I notice more and more guys in their 30s and 40s coming into my office with symptoms of andropause. They complain that their libido is on permanent vacation. They can’t keep the action going in the bedroom. Their energy levels are low and they’re moodier than they’ve ever been in their life.

This clearly isn’t a result of age-related testosterone loss. So what could be behind this anomaly? Continue reading

8 Easy Ways to Tame Back Pain

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

October 12, 2018

  • Safe, instant and effective relief for back pain
  • Give your back the exercise it needs
  • Learn how to pamper those achy bones and muscles

If you walk into the doctor’s office complaining about back pain, there’s a four out of five chance your doc will prescribe one or more medication to help ease your pain.

At minimum, you’ll likely be told some type of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication (NSAID) is in order. But the truth is these drugs don’t actually work very well to alleviate back pain.

Worse, all of them increase your chances of a heart attack or stroke. This is true even if you only use them for a few days. They also damage your kidneys, gut and can cause liver failure. Estimates from the literature reflect over 15,000 people die in the U.S. each year from GI bleeds while on NSAIDs.

If your pain is severe, you may also receive a prescription for an opioid or benzodiazepine. Oh blessed relief!

Not so fast. These narcotic drugs lose their effectiveness when you use them regularly. Plus, they’re extremely addictive. (Just watch the news. Almost every day there is a new headline about the raging epidemic of opioid addiction and overdose deaths.)

None of these are great options. And not a single one of them will actually fix your aching back.

NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE Study
Proves You Can Restore 10 To 20 Years of Aging

Research suggests that low levels of HGH could trigger many of the signs we associate with aging.

The very best way to boost your natural HGH levels is by taking natural HGH releasers. These nutrients include specific vitamins, antioxidants and amino-acids that activate the pituitary gland to support production of HGH naturally.

They're taken before bedtime, because they help you gently to sleep and because sleep is when growth hormone is primarily secreted.

The fact is back pain generally improves on its own within just a matter of weeks. And after a month or two, it entirely resolves all by itself. This is true whether you take any sort of medication or not.

As a result, your goal should be to find safe and effective ways to relieve the pain. Ways that don’t carry the long-term risks association with pharmaceuticals. Lucky for you, I have some great suggestions that not only provide pain relief, but also strengthen your back to help prevent further problems.

Give Your Back the Exercise it Needs

It’s hard to think of exercise when your back hurts. And you definitely don’t want to engage in strenuous activities like sprinting, jumping jacks, squats or lunges. When your back is in bad shape, it needs something milder.

Tai chi and yoga can both work wonders to relieve both chronic and severe back pain. In fact, these gentle forms of exercise work just as well as physical therapy for reducing pain, improving function and lowering the use of pain medicine.

Another thing I like about these types of programs is that the brain-body connection can help train your body how to move correctly. As these natural and more graceful movements become automatic, you are less likely to experience back pain in the future.

There are also a few exercises you can do at home to ease your aching back. Some of the most effective include…

Leg stretches. Lay down flat on the floor with your legs straight. Bend your right leg at the knee and bring it in toward your chest. Use your hands to press the knee as far into your chest as possible. Hold for a count of ten and release. Repeat on left leg. Do this 3 or 4 more times.

Pelvic tilts. Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Tighten your abdomen and curve it slightly upward with your back pressed to the floor. Hold for 10 seconds and release. Repeat 10 to 15 times.

The World's Quickest Solution for Ending Prostate and Urinary Misery

This has recently been revealed to be one of the only real breakthroughs in prostate health.

The seeds of a strange fruit (sometimes called "Chinese Apples") hold powerful phytonutrients that are a revolution in prostate health.

In fact, UCLA and Veterans Administration research have now proved this to be true.

Not only that, but it may be the worlds quickest solution for ending prostate misery.

Simply stated, these phytonutrients represent a huge step beyond beta sitosterol, saw palmetto, and other phytosterols alone.

Simply click HERE if you want to have fast prostate relief...restful, uninterrupted sleep...no more constant "urges to go"...enhanced virility...and optimal prostate support for life.

Bridge exercises. Lie flat with your legs bent and your arms straight/flat at your sides. Exhale, tighten your abdomen and slowly lift your hips off the floor. Gently roll your spine up one vertebra at a time from butt to shoulders until you’ve raised the last (upper) vertebra. Your back should be in a straight angle from shoulders to knees. Hold for a few seconds, then release your abdomen and reverse the process until you are back to resting position. Repeat 10 times.

All these exercises go to work immediately to stretch your back and hip muscles, relieve constriction and improve flexibility. They also strengthen your core muscles, which act like a “girdle” to help prevent future strains, sprains and pulled back muscles.

Pamper those Achy Bones and Muscles

In addition to giving your back the exercise it needs, I also recommend giving it a little pampering.

Most people don’t think of chiropractic care as pampering. But when something pops back into exactly the right place while you’re on the table… when you can suddenly and miraculously stand up straight again… well, it can be pretty blissful.

I recommend looking for a full service chiropractor who also offers massage and STIM/ TENS unit treatments. These added offerings help loosen you up beforehand, which makes it much easier for the chiropractor to perform an alignment.

Regular massages (outside of the chiropractor’s office) can also be helpful.

You see, when your back is in the throes of pain, it causes your muscles to spasm and tighten. And guess what happens next? These stiff and rigid muscles place direct pressure on your vertebrae. This not only contributes to agonizing back pain, it can also delay recovery.

A professional massage can help relieve those knotted muscles so that you heal more quickly too.

Soothing your aching muscles in a hot tub with jet sprays can help too. (If you don’t have access to one, you can get similar benefits by soaking in a warm bath containing Epsom salts along with some peppermint, spearmint or eucalyptus.)

For added relief, I recommend the application of a mentholated topical cream that contains 0.75% capsaicin to painful areas.

Taking a daily curcumin supplement can help, too. This powerful anti-inflammatory is widely recognized for its ability to relieve pain and inflammation. Look for one that is standardized to 90 to 95 percent total curcuminoids. And make sure it includes bioperine, a black pepper extract that substantially increases bioavailability.

Best Coffee Brewing Method for Your Cholesterol

does coffee cause heart disease, is coffee good for my heart, how to brew coffee, turpenes in coffee, cafestol and coffee, how to remove cafestol from my coffee, how to remove turpenes from coffee, best way to brew coffee, is espresso bad for me, coffee and heart health, is French press coffee healthy

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

September 21, 2018

  • Is coffee messing with your cardiovascular health?
  • The dark side of coffee
  • Espresso? French press? Which coffee is best for your heart?

There are a lot of health benefits associated with drinking coffee. People who drink it regularly often have a greatly reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes and even stroke.

When you consider the fact that coffee contains more than 1000 compounds, this actually makes a great deal of sense. It’s chock-full of all sorts of antioxidants, polyphenols and other phytonutrients that exert protective benefits.

But it turns out that, if you brew your coffee the wrong way, it has a very a dark side. One that could send your cardiovascular health into a downward spiral.

The Dark Side of Coffee

Believe it or not, how your coffee is brewed can make a huge difference to your heart health.

You see, the oils produced by coffee contain two decidedly unhealthy substances, cafestol and kahweol. Both of these compounds tend to wreak havoc on your cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

However, when you prepare coffee with a filter, the filter traps and removes them. But if drink espresso, French press or boiled coffee – all of which are unfiltered – these destructive chemicals remain intact.

When you ingest them, they immediately go to work to…

  • Raise your LDL cholesterol levels
  • Boost levels of apolipoprotein B (apoB)
  • Trigger the production of homocysteine
  • Send your triglycerides soaring

Now, if you read the September 12, 2018 issue of Advanced Natural Wellness, you know that apoB is the protein associated with small, dense LDL particles that clog your arteries. It also tends to damage LDL particles via oxidation, which makes matters even worse.

Homocysteine is another threat to your arteries. When levels of this amino acid get too high, it irritates the lining of your arteries. It also cause your blood to clot more easily and may increase your blood pressure. This can be disastrous if your blood vessels are already stiff and narrow.

High triglycerides also contribute to blocked arteries and interfere with normal blood clotting. Plus, excess levels may slow blood flow and lead to more small, dense low-density lipoproteins. That’s more bad news for your heart health.

But don’t despair!

Remember, it’s only unfiltered coffee that produces these horrible, heart-threatening side effects. So it doesn’t mean you have to give up the java.

Are You Suffering From...

  • Love handles and a pot belly
  • Romance that isn't what it used to
  • Forgetfulness and inattention
  • Low (or no) strength and endurance
  • A sex drive that's shifted into neutral...or worse

If so...you may have Mature Male Burnout.  Click here to discover more about this unique condition and what you can do about it.

Espresso? French Press? Which is the Best for Your Health?

These days coffee connoisseurs are purchasing their own espresso machines and French press coffee makers. Some are buying fresh coffee beans and boiling them to create their own special brews.

And while I hate to throw a damper on the java party, if you want to protect your cardiovascular health, a filtered pot of coffee is the best way to go.

Personally, I use a glass coffee maker. It’s not a machine. In fact, it’s pretty old school. It’s simply a glass carafe with a paper filter. I measure out my own organic coffee blend, and then just pour boiling water through the filtered grounds.

I prefer this over standard coffee makers, and for good reason. Most of today’s drip coffee makers are made of plastic. And the newer, fancier brewers use plastic coffee pods. All of these plastics leach into your coffee when they’re exposed to heat.

This contributes to estrogen dominance in men, breast cancer in women, reproductive disorders in both sexes and a whole host of other problems that are only now being explored in depth. So it’s always best to avoid them.

I also lean towards darker roasts. Due to the roasting process, these darker preparations have the lowest yields of cafestol, while lighter roasts have the highest.

And don’t forget to select a blend made from organic coffee beans. It’s the only way to avoid exposure to heavy pesticide residue.
