Libido in Men

Posted in AGING, DIABETES, OFF TOPICS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 10:50 pm by PCOSLady

MEN: Libido Problems
~
PCOS Lady:
Libido problems are being experienced by some men, even teens today! I have been asked by a few of my male friends to research options for you…
~ I strongly suggest men have their testosterone levels checked id over 45 yrs old since by 50 your level can drop to half or lower…
~
I took a three night seminar on Impotence at a hospital years ago given by the surgeon…
~ I know the test for impotence…
~ Thinning blood causes impotence… Heart illness, Diabetes, aging and medications are the main causes…
~
Women, you also cause your men to have libido problems when you cause emotional stress, cut on them there with harsh words, reject their affection, etc… Men show love through making love…
~ Most may have no idea the trauma they cause by words and actions!
~ Women, through my years i have heard about you pushing your men away! Then you get mad at women who take your men in… ‘YOU” are to blame! Not the women understanding your man!

The two places listed care and do not promote surgery unless it is the only option!
~ They use the highest dose of medicine from the Mayo Clinic and have 85% to 99% success rates!
~
I looked into a couple places…
~
“KEY” to knowing if you can get your libido back is having any slight arousal in your package!

Natural relief for andropause
While women undergo menopause, it appears that middle-aged men also experience their own very significant period of change called andropause – sometimes referred to as man-o-pause.

Andropause is caused by a steady decline in two valuable hormones: testosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). Symptoms vary from one man to another, andropause can result in lower libido, erectile dysfunction, sleep disorders, fatigue, loss of mental sharpness and an inverse change in the ratio of lean muscle to fat.

Parasite Test Truth!

Posted in IBS, MORGELLONS~NCS, PARASITES, WAKE UP FYI tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:39 pm by PCOSLady

Parasite Test Truth!
~
PCOS Lady:
This woman’s experience is exactly what i am going through! Unnecessary tests from the wrong lab(s), wrong type tests ordered, wasted gas, wasted money to pay for those unnecessary tests, etc… I now have a out of pocket bill for $900 for tests and should have only spent $485 at the Parasitology Center in Arizona and been fully confident in their findings and trusted their treatments!
~ Now i have to prove to my insurance i need the proper testing done at the right lab!
~
All i needed were the proper scripts to the correct lab, www.ParasiteTesting.com in Arizona! After all they literally test for every known parasite to man in the world!
~
Many of you are experiencing “bad” parasites and do not know it…
You may accept them with excuses like:
~ I’m aging
~ My chemistry has changed inside …
~ I ate something wrong …
~ I can’t eat that food anymore… Bad parasites hate acidic foods like pineapple and vinegars!
~ I’m not feeling well, it will pass…
~ I barfed my meal, ok no big deal something did not agree with me…
~ OK, i have diarrhea a few days, it will pass…
~ My doctor says i have IBS, just an upset stomach, etc…
~ My tests came back normal…
~ It’s my time to start getting sick…
~
Yada, yada, yada the EXCUSES KEEP MOUNTING and all the while “YOU” are getting sicker inside… You finally may do something when you start calling out of work, need a doctor, need an operation, you see your looks start getting “ugly”, hair is falling out more, nails are brittle or discoloring just to prove a point here!
~
Ladies, menstrual problems most likely are “bad” parasites! I urge you to be tested before any surgery and expensive treatments, etc…
~ Consider being properly tested if you have had miscarriages as well…
~
I strongly urge you to read through my Parasite and Morgellon posts…
~ Read up on Celiac Disease, Aspartame symptoms too! They can be fatal…
~ After taking antibiotics have you done a yeast cleanse that year? Docs rarely tell you to!
~ The medical world and such do not want you knowing the truths!
~
I copied her piece on lab tests to bring specific attention to the facts that most labs are not equipped to test for “bad” parasites in “YOU“!!!!!
~
Parasites, A Modern Epidemic gives you her journal of getting healthy after bad parasites…
~ She tells of the interesting truths of what we go through to get tested for parasites at almost every lab!

Parasites, A Modern Epidemic
by Garcia Thompson
~ ~ ~
Realize that although you may not feel ill or tired, there may still be parasites within your system. Parasitic infections are masters at hiding while feeding off the human body. So, how can you tell? You can try to take a medical test, but as Dr Andersen (a leading authority on parasitic infections) has said:
~
If you were tested by a doctor for parasites, chances are the results would come back negative. Does this mean you do not have parasites? Unfortunately, medical testing procedures only catch about 20% of the actual cases of parasites. Over a 1,000 species of parasites can live in your body and tests are available for approximately 40 to 50 types. This means, doctors are only testing for about 5% of the parasites and missing 80% of those. This brings the clinically found parasites down to 1%. Now, if I had a 1% chance of winning in the stock market, I don’t think I would invest. Only 1% of parasites are ever clinically found.
~
I went through a medical test that cost me $400, was sent to a “top lab” for the detection of parasites, and still was diagnosed as negative (yet after a few cleanses I have been flushing infections, toxins and parasites from my body daily.) So, although there is a chance the lab test will catch the infection, the likelihood is that it won’t. (the major problem is that the parasites must not only be on the “list” the lab looks for, but also must be laying eggs when the samples are taken.)

~
Dr Ross Andersen:
Quote: “Parasites are one of the most undiagnosed health challenges in the U.S.”
~ A statement based on his 20 years of experience with over 20,000 patients.
http://altered-states.net/barry/newsletter368/index.htm
~
Parasites are the Silent Invasion, what you should know about parasite infestation.
~
According to the World Health Organization, 3.5 billion people suffer from some type of parasitic infection. Not all of these people live in third world countries; many in the developed world have any number of parasitic infections, some of which are so highly contagious that extremely casual contact with something that has been handled by an infected person can infect another person.
~
All people suffer from parasites of one type or another during their lifetimes.
~ EG Bacteria are always at the root of bowel problems, such as pain, bloating and gassiness.
~
The Parasitology Center’s Dr Amin has found H. pylori in most IBS cases… They have a specific test for it…

Aging

PCOS Lady:
Aging is a natural process of life… We can improve our life to age better inside and out though… Eating right is a huge “KEY”… I do believe and have seen it happen in me if you eat more greens, veggies and fruits you look healthy and feel better…
~ A recent retired bio chemist complimented me a few years ago on my complexion etc…
~ I will be eating healthy 4 to 5 times a week and eating meat 2 to 3 times a week after doing all the researching i do for my blogs…
~
Many research doctors do not believe in an all vegan diet…

I feel vegan depends on a person’s preferences… Just have things checked at times…

Fight Aging: The Real Secrets to Staying Young
~
Want to stay vital well into your 80s and beyond? Here’s some of their latest research, with advice on how you can add years to your life.
~
1. Stop eating so much. In Okinawa, Japan—home to some of the world’s oldest people—centenarians stop eating when they’re 80 percent full, says The Blue Zones author Dan Buettner, who studies longevity all over the planet.
~ Dr OZ said to have actual sex 220 times a year to stay healthy per research on another show.
~
They’re onto something: Scientists at St. Louis University found that, while both exercising and eating less led to weight loss in the study’s volunteers, cutting calories also lowered production of T3, a thyroid hormone that slows metabolism. The researchers believe that lower T3 levels may also slow the aging process.
~
2. Make love. Women who enjoy sex live longer, says Mehmet Oz, MD, professor and vice chairman of surgery at New York Presbyterian–Columbia University and co-author of YOU: Being Beautiful. In fact, doubling your amount of satisfying sex can add up to three years to your life, he says. “Sex gives you the Zen moment you can’t find throughout the day otherwise.”
~
3. Use your brain Dr. Geula, who has studied 80-year-olds who perform at the same level as people in their 50s on neuro­psychological tests, has found that the super aged have fewer brain tangles—deposits of protein linked to Alzheimer’s—suggesting that their brains have some sort of protection that normal brains don’t. While scientists puzzle this out, there’s a lot you can do to keep your own synapses firing. Learn Italian, take up the cello—even driving a new route to work can wake up sleepy brain cells.
~
4. Pour yourself some merlot. You’ve probably heard a lot about resveratrol, a compound in red wine and grape juice that seems to slow aging. One recent study found that resveratrol-fed mice had stronger bones and better motor coordination, and showed fewer “old age” problems like heart disease, inflammation, and cataracts. The jury is still out on whether resveratrol has the same effect on humans, but nutritionists say drinking red wine in moderation does have heart-healthy benefits.
~
5. Lose the muffin top. In one large study published last year, researchers who tracked 6,583 people for more than 30 years found that having significant belly fat in midlife can nearly triple your risk of dementia.
~
6. Eat more plants. In his study of centenarians, Buettner found the longest-living people tend to eat less meat and more beans, soy, and nuts.

Metabolism Plateau

Posted in LIFESTYLE CHANGES tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 5:41 pm by PCOSLady

PCOS Lady:
Many of us will hit a plateau, stuck in losing, a block, etc… You just have to try different things to get over it and keep losing weight…
~
Issues and factors do play a roll in this for some people…
~ Aging is a natural thing and can pack on pounds making you think you did something wrong or hit a plateau…
~ Drugs for high blood pressure, especially diuretics and the drugs known as beta-blockers, can make your body extremely resistant to weight loss… Cholesterol-lowering statin drugs also keep you from losing weight and they’re potentially dangerous as well… Dr. Atkins, “The majority of oral medications for diabetes have a weight-gain effect. The one drug that does help diabetics control their blood sugar and lose weight is metformin, marketed under the brand name Glucophage®.
~
http://www.low-carb.com/at-art5.html
~ Low-Carb … Informative on breaking your plateau…
~
Jacqueline Eberstein, R.N., director of medical education at The Atkins Center, figure out if you really are on a plateau. “The scale is the least reliable reflection of fat loss, ” she points out. “Look at other markers. Are you feeling better? Do your clothes feel loser? If you’re losing inches but not pounds, your fat cells are still shrinking. Also, check whether you are in still in lipolysis/ketosis by using ketone test strips. You’re only on a plateau it there’s no change at all for more than four weeks.”

Fungal Arthritis

Posted in FUNGAL tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:48 pm by PCOSLady

PCOS Lady:
Arthritis, many of you have it! Here is a fungal one you should look at and possibly ask your doctor to consider testing you for it!
~
So often we accept our symptoms as being due to aging, body changing, hereditary things, etc…
~
Fact is as we age we are experiencing foreign micro organisms (fungus, bacteria, “bad” parasites, yeast, etc…) invading us… Over the years they are showing signs they are in us!
~
FUNGAL ARTHRITIS
~
What are Fungal infections?
Fungal infections are caused by microscopic plants (fungi) that can live on the skin. They can live on the dead tissues of the hair, nails, and outer skin layers.
~
http://adam.about.net/encyclopedia/infectiousdiseases/Fungal-arthritis.htm
~
Fungal Arthritis
~
Fungal arthritis is infection of a joint by a fungus.
~
Causes:
~
Fungal arthritis, also called mycotic arthritis, is a very rare condition. It can be caused by any of the invasive types of fungi. These organisms may affect bone or joint tissue. One or more joints may be affected, most often the large, weight-bearing joints, especially the knees.
~
Conditions that can cause fungal arthritis include:
~
~ Blastomycosis
~ Candidiasis
~ Coccidioidomycosis
~ Cryptococcosis
~ Histoplasmosis
~ Sporotrichosis
~
The infection sometimes occurs as a result of an infection in another organ such as the lungs, and tends to get worse very slowly. The large joints are most often affected. People with weakened immune systems who travel or live in endemic areas are more susceptible to most causes of fungal arthritis.
~
Symptoms:
~
~ Arthritis
~ Fever
~ Joint pain
~ Joint stiffness
~ Joint swelling
~ Swelling of the ankles, feet, and legs
~
Exams and Tests:
~
~ Culture of joint fluid that grows fungus
~ Joint x-ray showing joint changes
~ Positive antibody test (serology) for fungal disease
~ Synovial biopsy showing fungus
~
Treatment
~
The goal of treatment is to cure the infection using antifungal drugs. The most commonly used antifungal drugs are amphotericin B or medications in the azole family (fluconazole, ketoconazole, or itraconazole).
~
Chronic or advanced bone or joint infection may require surgery (debridement) to remove the infected tissue.
~
Outlook (Prognosis)
What happens depends on the underlying cause of the infection and the patient’s overall health. A weakened immune system, cancer, and certain medications can affect the outcome.
~
Possible Complication:
Joint damage can occur if the infection is not treated promptly.
~
When to Contact a Medical Professional:
Call for an appointment with your health care provider if you have any symptoms of fungal arthritis.
~
Prevention:
Thorough treatment of fungal infections elsewhere in the body may help prevent fungal arthritis.

Magnesium ~ Epsom Salts

Posted in MINERALS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 7:39 pm by PCOSLady

MAGNESIUM ~ EPSOM SALTS
~
http://www.ehow.com/how_4887228_epsom-salt-number-of-ways.html
~ EHow …
Increase your magnesium levels in your body by soaking in Epsom salt bath water three times weekly. While it is extremely difficult to get enough magnesium in our systems through our diets, it is readily absorbs into our systems through our skin. Magnesium is needed by our bodies for many functions; however, a doctor should be consulted prior to extensive use, particularly for those with kidney problems. Magnesium works to activate many other enzymes our body needs.
~
Magnesium is useful in the treatment of asthma, COPD, fibromyalgia, ADD, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, angina, cardiac arrhythmia, congestive heart failure, fatigue, kidney stones, migraine and tension headaches, complications due to pregnancy and premenstrual syndrome. Our bodies cannot properly use serotonin without the assistance of magnesium. Serotonin is a natural chemical created within the brain responsible for feelings of well being and relaxation. So maybe there is something to that saying “Calgon take me away”?
~
Importance of Magnesium is Far Greater than Previously Imagined
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/12/17/magnesium-benefits.aspx?e_cid=20121217_DNL_art_1
~ Dr Mercola … Importance of Magnesium is Far Greater than Previously Imagined… A number of studies have previously shown magnesium can benefit your blood pressure and help prevent sudden cardiac arrest, heart attack, and stroke. But its role in human health appears to be far more complex than previously thought, and—like vitamin D—its benefits may be more far-reaching than we’ve imagined. GreenMedInfo.com‘s database project has indexed over 100 health benefits of magnesium so far, including therapeutic benefits for: Fibromyalgia, Cardiovascular disease, Atrial fibrillation, Migraine, Type 2 diabetes, Aging, Premenstrual syndrome, Mortality… As you age: Age — older adults are more likely to be magnesium deficient because absorption decreases with age and the elderly are more likely to take medications that can interfere with absorption… Diabetes, especially if it’s poorly controlled, leading increased magnesium loss in urine…
