Low T

Guys, not feeling up to your usual self? Is your sex drive low? Are you not getting as many erections as you'd like? Having trouble maintaining them? Are you finding your self more easily irritated or tired than you should be? Gaining weight or is it harder to keep weight off?
Well, your testosterone could be dropping.
Low T (testosterone) is defined as: Abnormally low levels of the male sex hormone testosterone in the blood. Testosterone is produced by the testes and to a lesser extent by the adrenal glands. Testosterone encourages the development of male sexual characteristics at puberty, stimulates the activity of the male secondary sex characteristics, drives the production of sperm, and is involved in regulation of muscle mass and sex drive. Testosterone levels are highly regulated by a complex glandular system. Abnormally low testosterone levels can occur due to a number of conditions affecting the glands that regulate and produce this hormone. Symptoms of low testosterone include decreased libido, impotence or erectile dysfunction, breast enlargement, and a lowered sperm count. Sounds miserable doesn't it?
What you need to know guys, is that there is a natural, holistic & safe way to increase your testosterone!
Acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles into the body, it can painlessly improve libido & increase quantity & quality of erections, increase testosterone & other hormones important for sexual health.
Acupuncture can also relieve pain, improve upon conditions such as BPH, Peyronies, pelvic floor dysfunction, erectile dysfunction, low libido & can minimize the negative side-effects from prostate cancer treatment as well as improve the health of the prostate whether you have cancer or not. Acupuncture improves circulation, muscle tone & nerve impulse regulation to the genitals.
The time to start feeling like You again is Now!

Acupuncture Does relieve pain.

Acupuncture has a major effect on pain. We can see this through what it does within Gate Control Theory: it activates non-nociceptive receptors that inhibit the transmission of nociceptive signals in the dorsal horn, "gating out" painful stimuli.
Jargon!! What that means is acupuncture STOPS pain in its tracks at the spinal level. The signal coming from pain never reaches the Central Nervous System. Ergo, your brain doesn't receive the pain signal from your body & that equals no pain.
There are also a whole other host of events that occur when that acupuncture needle enters the body that encourage healing. But this above is one explanation that proves how effective acupuncture treatment is in curing &/or managing acute & chronic pain.
You can live pain free safely!!!!!!!!


Are you curious why I would recommend herbs alone or in addition to acupuncture? It's a good question.
Herbs are a powerful & effective addition to acupuncture treatments. Herbs strengthen, build & support the body or clear it of problems like colds, flu, fever, acute pain, etc.
I may begin your treatment with herbs & add acupuncture later or visa versa. Herbs can enhance your acupuncture treatment naturally & safely. If you decide you don't ever want a needle placed in you, I have many other therapies I can offer you. Herbs being one of them. There's many paths to get you healthy, we'll take as many as we can together!!

Insomnia, drugs are Not the best option!!

I've been seeing commercials for this new insomnia drug Belsomra. I thought I'd share the terrifying side-effects....
sleepiness or unusual drowsiness
unusual or abnormal dreams
changes in behavior
fear or nervousness
feeling sad or empty
lack of appetite
loss of interest or pleasure
loss of memory
problems with memory
seeing, hearing, or feeling things that are not there
**!!!!temporary inability to move or talk for up to several minutes while you are going to sleep or wake up!!!!**
temporary weakness in your legs
thoughts of killing oneself
trouble concentrating
body aches or pain
difficulty with breathing
dry mouth
ear congestion
loss of voice
nasal congestion
runny nose
sore throat
unusual tiredness or weakness
Yeah!!!! Not cool!!! Getting quality sleep helps cure you of or keeps you from experiencing the above conditions. So why would you take a drug to cause all those problems!?
Take care of your insomnia safely with acupuncture & natural herbal supplementation, breathing exercises & meditation. One or a combination of these safe practices can help you get the best sleep of your life, every night!!!!

What can acupuncture treat?

I often get asked what Acupuncture can treat. I say everything then try to elaborate as that answer still gets questions.
Acupuncture is phenomenal at treating the following, to name just a few things...
Erectile Dysfunction
Menopausal Symptoms
Irregular Menstrual Cycles
Pain (back, neck, knee, elbow, etc.)
Weight Loss
Addiction/substance abuse (along with rehab)
Frequent urination
Rheumatoid arthritis
Facial Palsy
Adrenal fatigue
That enough for ya for now? You can always contact me to discuss weather whatever condition your experiencing is well treated with acupuncture.
Also, it's great for maintaining good physical, mental & emotional health well-being even if you don't have a "problem/issue".

Breast Tests

I was recently reading an article about the differences between mammography & thermography testing for breast cancer detection. What I got out of the article & what I get out of most articles, is that a more well rounded approach is always the best. Both of these exam methods have their advantages & disadvantages (I won't go into them here) but used in conjunction, offer a more comprehensive look at breast health.

Mammography  is done by compressing the breast, taking an x-ray & reviewing what is in the breast tissue. Thermography looks at heat levels in the vasculature of the breast. Areas of heightened temperature indicates inflammation which could be an early sign of of cancer or other breast abnormalities.

To me, one of the most important things you can do before even heading to your yearly well woman check, is being sure to do your self checks. With the world now at our finger tips, you can find umpteen videos, graphics or other descriptions of how to perform a self breast exam online. You can ask any one of your physicians, including myself, how to do it. Then do it every month!!

Breast cancer is what we all worry about but there are other issues that can affect breasts that are also problematic & need medical attention. So gals & guys, pay attention!! Self exams Do save lives!!!!
