Balanced Hormones = Better Sex, Increased Well-Being and Longer Life

When the Luv Bug Catches You!

 

By Edison De Mello, MD, PhD

Blame it on chemistry: Testosterone, Dopamine, Oxycotin, … and your nose, get you Ready for Luv.

Testosterone is not just the “macho hormone” that most people think of it as. It actually drives sexual desire in both men and women. The salivary transfer of this powerful hormone is believed to be what increases sexual desire in partners during kissing.

Placebo Effect: How the mind (and body) responds to what we think

 

By. Dr. Alicia Maher

Have you ever flinched at the sight of blood? Or yawned when you see someone else do so? Our brains are reacting to things even when we aren’t conscious of it. Sometimes, this reaction is as powerful as medication, such as what occurs with the placebo response. In every study of medication versus placebo, there will be some people who respond to the inert substance of the placebo, the same as the group getting the active ...

Break Unwanted Habits With Mindfulness!

 

By Dr. Swati Desai

I remember getting really angry when I was doing my Akasha Cleanse and it required me not to have my morning cup of coffee. It is hard to let go of habits even when they are unwanted. It could be habits around food, alcohol, smoking, or some patterns of strong reactions which we regret later. We know we want to change them and yet we fall into the same hole again and again. How do we ...

Courage is Good For Your Health

 

Dr. Bren Boston

Courage makes us feel good. It allows us to have some control over how we react to our fears. Courage gives us the bravery to stand up to our fears, again and again, whether we conquer those fears or not. Perhaps then, we should appreciate that courage can also have a beneficial effect on our mental and physical health. Staying healthy can allow us to be more courageous.

Courage is one of those intangible powers inside all of ...

Getting Adequate Zzz’s

 

By Alexandra Mark

When working with clients on their wellness goals, I always start with a comprehensive initial assessment, which includes more than a discussion about diet. While it’s important for me to learn about a client’s eating habits and dietary restrictions, achieving optimal wellness requires more than just a clean eating plan. I often find that clients struggle to meet their goals when under stress, which is commonly associated with lack of sleep.

Research shows that fewer than seven hours ...

Did you know that only 1% of the population can operate ...

By Edison de Mello, MD, PhD 

Our bodies is composed of roughly 60% water. That means when we are dehydrated – and most of us are – all of our organ functions are severely compromised. In other words, we function very poorly without proper water intake.

As the TED ED attached video explains, why should we drink more water?
