Common Heart Drug Zaps Testosterone

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

If you read my recent article about testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), you know it’s not a magic fix.

In fact, most problems with bedroom performance can actually be traced back to heart disease rather than testosterone deficiency.  And using TRT actually increases your risk of cardiac disease.

It’s bad news all the way around. Continue reading

Will testosterone replacement therapy fix your bedroom issues? A lot of men who visit my office sure seem to think so.

Skip the Little Blue Pill and Try This

Erectile function and Nitric Oxide

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

I have men come into my office all the time looking for a little help in the bedroom. When it comes to intimate time with their partners, many of my patients have the desire…but are lacking the ability.

Most of these men are hoping I’ll prescribe a little blue or amber pill to keep them rigid for hours on end.

Sure, these pills provide a quick fix — improving blood flow to erectile tissue — but it’s only temporary.

These enhancing pills don’t correct the root of your problem. It’s like mopping the floor while the tub is still overflowing.

Male Menopause: Myth or Reality?

Male Menopause

  • 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.)

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

  • Are prostate problems destroying your bedroom fun?
  • Why your prostate starts growing after age 40
  • Get rid of the “dribble” and get back in the bedroom

When men think of prostate problems, they immediately think of urinary difficulties.

After all, that’s what we all hear about… dribbling over the toilet in the middle of the night. Road trips postponed… and ball games cut short because of the “urge to go.”

But there’s another side of the story that is equally disturbing: Continue reading
