Studies Show Mens Biological Clock is Ticking Too — Chinese Medicine Can Boost Sperm Quality (amazon) (shopzilla)


Vancouver Canada (PRWEB) February 16, 2012

Age takes its toll on mens sperm starting at about age 30, and semen quantity and sperm quality decline sharply after age 45 according to a recent study presented at the American Society for Reproductive Medicines annual conference.

This can affect pregnancy outcomes for couples undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF). Advanced paternal age is also associated with a higher risk of spontaneous abortion and genetic disorders like downs syndrome, autism spectrum disorder and schizophrenia. Natural supplements and Traditional Chinese medicine appears to repair the quality of aging sperm.

Acubalance Wellness Centre, a Fertility Acupuncture clinic, is offering a free seminar on Fertility and Age: Can You Turn Back the Reproductive Clock? March 12 at Pekoe Tea Lounge in Vancouver. Lorne Brown, a Dr of TCM and clinical director at Acubalance, will be talking about the effects of age on mens and womens fertility, and what you can do about it.

Much of what we do is try to slow down the reproductive clock, repair environmental insults to the reproductive system, and extend that window of fertility for both men and women. Chinese herbal therapy and regular acupuncture has been shown to boost sperm quality. There are now some exciting studies showing that CO Q10 may be effective in improving semen parameters. says Brown.

A study published in the Journal of Urology found that Coenzyme Q10 supplementation resulted in a statistically significant improvement in certain semen parameters. The study stated that further studies were needed to determine to what extent those improved parameters results in increased pregnancy rates.

Another study has just shown that vitamin D levels may be a potent factor in fertility for men and women. Vitamin D is essential for the healthy development of each sperms nucleus. It also increases levels of the male sex hormone testosterone, improving a mans libido, according to the review of several studies, published this week in the European Journal of Endocrinology.

Vitamin D3 is one of the supplements I prescribe to boost male fertility in all my male patients particularly those over 40, says Brown.

    Four Steps to Feeling Alive After 55: Dr. Daniel Thomas, Expert in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine Outlines What Makes People Feel Like They Are 30 Again (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Lake Mary, FL (PRWEB) June 06, 2013

    As many researchers and scientists strive to find cures for common age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s, cancer, and heart disease, many people in their 50s and 60s who are relatively healthy can still feel weak and tired. Now, there is a new four-pronged approach from Dr. Daniel Thomas, a Lake Mary, Florida physician who specializes in metabolic and nutritional medicine. This new program is designed to help people feel energetic and youthful regardless of age. All of this is done sans synthetic pharmaceuticals and invasive procedures.

    Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine is an important field that focuses on the prevention and treatment of age-related decline. It is well supported by peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals, and utilizes individualized, evidence-based protocols that address the very source of the problem in individual patients.

    The traditional medical view of aging is one that expects you to eventually suffer from inevitable complications and a steady decline in energy and quality of life. The truth is nobody wants to get or feel old. says Dr. Thomas. After studying metabolic and nutrition for many years, Ive helped my patients regain their strength, vitality and return their bodies to a more optimal state.

    Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine combats the key underlying causes of disease and premature aging including hormone deficiency, oxidative stress, chronic inflammation, cellular membrane degradation, insulin resistance, and also promotes the bodys mechanisms of self-repair by stimulating the production of stem cells.

    Dr. Thomas four-pronged approach includes the following:

    Natural Hormone Therapy
    Detoxification
    Correcting Nutritional Deficiencies
    Lifestyle Modification

    I am grateful to Dr. Thomas who helped me to feel young again. I recommend (the program) for men and women who want to feel stronger, healthier and younger. It sure works wonders for my well-being, said Diana D., a patient of Dr. Thomas.

    1. Prescription Natural (Non-Synthetic) Hormone Therapy: Around age 40, many people begin to lose the ability to produce sufficient levels of hormones, until it reaches a point where it is difficult to keep up with the demands of daily living. The quality of life once took for granted, slowly slips away. Millions of men and women are living with sub-optimal hormone levels and do not even realize it. Restoring hormones to healthy physiologic levels is one of the safest and most effective ways to protect the body and brain as one ages.

    2. Detoxification: The fact is, says Dr. Thomas, “we live in a toxic world and our bodies are under constant attack from disease-promoting free radicals. Reducing the burden of these harmful substances is crucial in order to keep your body young and healthy. Our program provides targeted support to enhance the function of the liver in two phases.”

    3. Correcting Nutritional Deficiencies: One of the most important things people to enhance overall health is to maintain a healthy diet. The notion that food can be the answer to many ills is not new it goes back thousands of years. However, studies have shown that many of fruits and vegetables are relatively low in essential phytochemicalsnatural compounds with the potential to reduce the risk of major diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and dementia. The program teaches patients how to eat in order to bring back necessary phytochemicals, and learn which vitamin supplements can truly increase your health and longevity so that people do not waste time or money on vitamins or supplements that do not work or may do harm.

    4. Lifestyle Modification: “Engaging in regular physical activity is one of the most important things one can do for your health,” says Dr. Thomas. “Our program includes a personalized fitness plan that takes half the time and offers twice the results. Our program also includes restoring sound sleep and effectively reducing stress, both of which may be more important that diet and exercise for health and longevity.”

    Ironically, Americans have gotten so used to seeing unhealthy people, they think its normal. We need to understand that the normal state of humans is not being sick, not taking countless medications, and not visiting the doctors office on a frequent basis, says Dr. Thomas.

        Preventive Medicine Treatments for Future Mothers will Help Reduce the Number of Babies Born with Autism – Grand Opening of Living Longer Medical Resort on December 19 2012 (amazon) (shopzilla)


        Desert Hot Springs, Califronia (PRWEB) December 20, 2012

        The A 2011 Stanford University School of Medicine study which found that 62 % of autism risk as attributable to environmental factors. (#1) A report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that the number of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders is one in 88 in newborns, a 78% increase compared to results from a decade ago, and that the number of children born with autism and the number will double in the next 5 years..(#2)

        Multiple medical studies have found more than 200 chemicals in the umbilical cords of newborns.One of the recently Published Medical Research Studies, that found and identified the over 220 chemicals that may cause autism and other birth defects in a mothers umbilical cord, identified the rapidly-rising amount of toxic chemical contaminants found in our environment from exposures to air, water, and food, and in consumer products and commercial chemicals omnipresent on supermarket shelves.(#3)

        Our environment is currently flooded with chemicals that contaminate our body cells. One past study by the Environmental Protection agency (EPA) was engaged in the National Human Adipose (fat) Tissue Survey (NHATS). In this study, adipose samples from elective surgeries and cadavers from all regions of the country showed that the levels of measured and documented toxins reflected a skyrocketing increase. These results are a cause for great concern. Five of the chemicals that are known to cause birth defects were found in 100% of all samples. Another nine chemicals known to cause birth defects were found in 91-98% of all samples. In addition, olychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) were found in 83% of all samples, and beta-BHC in 87%, both of which have linked to birth defects and cancer. A total of 20 toxic compounds that have been known to cause birth defects, such as autism, were found in 76% or more of all samples(#4).For unknown reasons The United States governments E.P.A. discontinued this important study in 1986 after documenting such alarming increases, although they still continue to monitor chemicals in our environment.(#5) Many more published studies both international and from the United States confirm that the amount of toxic chemicals, that are known to cause cancer, autism, birth defects, and many other health issues have been increasing at an alarming rate.(#6)

        The doctors believe and promote preventive medicine procedure that treat the causes instead of waiting to treat the effects of the many health issues that are growing at an alarming rate in our modern society (including autism, birth defects, cancers, dementia and memory loss). They also are convinced that preventative medicine will have a major role in the future of the health care industry in the USA.

        The fact that many of these health problems are related to or caused by toxic chemicals found in our bodys cells and the benefits of cleansing the body of these toxic chemicals and improving circulation and blood flow will continue to be shown in published medical studies and research papers. The doctors have developed science-based, natural medicine procedures that implement cellular cleansing in combination with oxygen delivery treatments. These medical procedures have shown amazing improvement for patients who already suffer from health issues, including autism and other neurological and autoimmune disorders. The treatments and procedures focus on flushing, cleansing, de-toxing and ridding the body of harmful chemicals. Blood testing is offered where an independent laboratory identifies the toxic chemicals, and documents the decrease in amounts that treatment produces).The other focuses of these medical procedures is to strengthen the immune system and to rejuvenate, regenerate and improve the bodys cells growth and development, by improving the circulation of the blood, and making the vessels and arteries that remove the toxins and deliver nutrition and oxygen to the cells much more efficient, beneficial and productive. The doctors use an inter-graded preventive medicine approach when administering preventive medicine treatments and when treating patients already affected with autism and other neurological disorders. These medical procedures use medical equipment and procedures that modern western medical research and science provide (hyperbaric chamber oxygen, cold light laser, enhanced external counter pulsation, passive oxygen, heart rate variability monitoring, infrared therapies),combined with time-tested, eastern natural-healing medicine(supplements, herbs, juicing, nutrition, diet, exercise, massage, wraps, yoga, mind body meditation, acupressure) to address, treat and prevent these health problems and promote anti-aging and longer life.

        They are also aware, from multiple medical studies, of the effect that stress has on the bodys overall health and healing. One study from Researchers in Columbus Ohio found that stress can stretch the total time it takes for a body injury to heal by as much as 40%.(#7) This study parallels other studies on the significant effects of stress on the human immune system (which is the critical component in how the body naturally fights diseases, infections, and heals itself).(#8) These facts led our doctor to create the concept of a medical resort where intensive, yet relaxing, medical treatments are administered in a health-retreat setting where patients are administered calming and soothing, yet intensive, medical treatments while relaxing and vacationing in a low-stress environment. The Doctors at Living Longer Medical Resort are sure that the treatment programs will cost less than you think, while ignoring them could be far more costly then you could ever imagine for your familys welfare and future.
