What’s the Least You Can Do to Stay Healthy?

Let’s face it: life can feel chaotic. Trying to find the time to hit the gym before work, prepare healthy gourmet meals every night, and somehow avoid all of the good stuff (alcohol, coffee, sugar, etc.) all the time isn’t always realistic. Some mornings, simply putting on slacks and making it to the office feels like an accomplishment. But that doesn’t mean your health should suffer. You can manage to stay health, if you focus on the right things. Here [...]

Men: Is Your Bathroom Frequency Normal?

It’s a subject we don’t think about until we REALLY notice a problem: our bladder health. But just because it’s not a glamorous topic of discussion, that doesn’t mean you should ignore it. Your bladder plays a vital role in your overall health, and an unhealthy bladder can cause larger problems. The bladder is a small sack about the size of a pear. Its only job is to store (not create) urine. Urine trickles into the bladder slowly throughout the [...]

Want a Healthy, Happy Brain? Eat These Foods

What you eat impacts a lot more than just the number on the scale. Of course, what you eat significantly impacts your physical health — things like your weight, your risk of chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes, and your metabolism — but it also affects your brain. Your brain is a complex organ that has the ultimate control over the rest of your body. It is the powerhouse that regulates your mood, emotions, cognitive abilities like memory and [...]

Best Ways to Tune up Your Sluggish Metabolism and Regain Health

If you’re trying to lose weight, you’re probably focusing on cutting calories and hitting the gym more frequently or actively than usual. But depending on your metabolism, these tactics may be causing more harm than good. If a slow metabolism is causing your weight gain or inability to lose weight, then you need to address it before you attempt a diet. Metabolism is the process by which your body turns the food you eat into energy your body can use. [...]

Five Ways to Help Reduce Knee Pain

Chronic knee pain can occur due to various factors. Dislocation in the knee, arthritis, bad posture, chronic inflammation, baker’s cyst, and bursitis could be why you may be experiencing knee pain. Depending on the intensity of the pain, medication and exercises are usually recommended to lower pain and minimize discomfort.

Coffee and Your Health: How Much is Too Much?

People have been drinking coffee to jolt them awake in the morning for centuries. Coffee got its start in Ethiopia in the 11th century, when the “magical bean” was believed to have healing properties. In the 15th century, coffee moved from private consumption to coffee houses in Persia, Syria, Egypt and Turkey. These “penny universities,” as they were later called in Europe for their ability to provide visitors with caffeine-stimulated intellectual conversation for a penny a cup, became increasingly [...]

The Importance of Community for Men

The idea of a lone wolf is embedded in our minds as a symbol of strength, independence, and freedom. But wolves are pack animals; they survive and thrive in groups. Lone wolves, as romantic as the notion may sound, are not usually alone by choice. Rather they are alpha males who have been kicked out of their pack by a new, bigger alpha, or a younger alpha-esque wolf who challenged the leader. The same is true with men. While American [...]

Healing Your Gut With Probiotics

You’ve likely heard about probiotics and how they can help prevent illness, strengthen your immune system, and fight infections. But did you know they can actually alter your gene activity and cellular reactions? In a study at Maastricht University, participants who consumed a dairy drink with three strains of probiotic bacteria experienced changes in their genes similar to changes that would have been achieved from medications for high blood pressure and immune function. The study specifically reviewed the effects [...]

Is Technology Harming Your Health? Set Some Boundaries

It may be called “social networking,” but the amount of time we spend in cyberspace actually has the opposite effect. Rather than feeling connected and socialized, we end up feeling isolated.  A 2014 study showed a direct correlation between time spent on Facebook and depressive symptoms. The more time we spend “connecting” with the world, the less we like the world. The reasons for this are varied, from comparing our lives to the “rose-colored glasses” versions of other people's’ [...]

Have You Considered Low Level Laser Therapy for Infertility

If you and your partner are struggling with infertility, you aren’t alone. In the United States, approximately 15% of couples have difficulty getting pregnant. Infertility can be caused by numerous factors. Some, like polycystic ovarian syndrome, affect women and some, like low sperm count, affect men. And sometimes it’s a combination of male and female factors. The most common causes of male infertility are related to testicular function. The testicles must produce enough high-quality (shape, motility) sperm, which then needs [...]
