Visceral, or deep-belly obesity, is a risk factor for bone loss and decreased bone strength in men, according to a study presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). It is important for men to be aware that excess belly fat is not only a risk factor for heart disease and diabetes, but it is also a risk factor for bone loss. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, more than 37 million American men over age 20 are obese. Obesity is associated with many health problems, including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, high cholesterol, asthma, sleep apnea and joint diseases. Yet despite all the health issues, it was commonly accepted that men with increased body weight were at lower risk for bone loss. But not all body fat is the same. Subcutaneous fat lies just below the skin, and visceral or intra-abdominal fat is located deep under the muscle tissue in the abdominal cavity. Genetics, diet and exercise are all contributors to the level of visceral fat that is stored in the body. Excess visceral fat is considered particularly dangerous, because in previous studies it has been associated with increased risk for heart disease.

“It’s important for people to treat the face with care. Never scrub the skin or use harsh products, as doing so irritates the skin, which makes skin look worse,” says Thomas E. Rohrer, MD, FAAD, a board-certified dermatologist in private practice in Chestnut Hill, Mass. The following are some tips for healthier looking skin just by washing your face:

• Use a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser that does not contain alcohol.
• Wet your face with lukewarm water and use your fingertips to apply cleanser. • Using a washcloth, mesh sponge, or anything other than your fingertips, can irritate your skin.
• Resist the temptation to scrub your skin, as scrubbing irritates the skin.
• Rinse with lukewarm water, and pat dry with a soft towel.  
• Apply moisturizer if your skin is dry or itchy. Be gentle when applying any cream around your eyes, so you do not pull too hard on this delicate skin.
• Limit washing to twice a day and after sweating. Wash your face once in the morning and once at night, as well as after sweating heavily. Perspiration, especially when wearing a hat or helmet, irritates the skin. Wash your skin as soon as possible after sweating. 

Probiotic supplements help the good organisms in your intestines grow and get rid of the bad organisms that can disrupt normal intestinal function. Probiotic dietary supplements are grouped into two categories:  yeast or bacteria, which interact with the body differently. Probiotic supplements containing bacteria are made up of different strains that are good for various tasks, so their effects may vary. Yeast-based Florastor contains 250mg of active Saccharomyces boulardii lyo (a friendly yeast found naturally on the skin of the tropical fruits lychee and mangosteen).  Probiotic yeast, like the yeast found in Florastor, can increase the production of immunoglobulin A (IgA), the primary infection-fighting antibody. This factor works to maintain a balanced digestive tract and support the function of the immune system.




Holidays can be loaded with a heavy dose of stress. To bring more heaven than hell into your holiday, try these healthy holiday tips.

S PLAN AHEAD - Even a little pre-holiday planning can help to relieve some of the stress during your festive events.
S STICK TO YOUR BUDGET - Money issues are one of the most significant stress factors of the holiday season , so make a budget and try not to go over.  
S ANY EXERCISE IS BETTER THAN NONE - When you’re most pressed for time is the time that your body needs that extra boost of endorphins that only exercise can give you. Even if it’s just for 10–15 minutes, try to break a sweat at least two to three times per week.
S KEEP YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM STRONG - Wash hands often, remember not to rub your eyes, stay hydrated, and adjust your expectations: not every tradition need be repeated. Don’t be afraid to trade off different traditions each year.
S DIGITALLY DETOX - Try to at least turn your phone off for a few hours each day over the holidays. This will help keep your stress levels down.
S SEND LEFTOVERS OFF TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS - All those high-calorie holiday goodies can be too tempting to indulge in over the New Year’s week so get rid of them by sending them home with your loved ones.
S HOLIDAY HANGOVER PREVENTION - Make sure to eat protein first and try to alternate glasses of alcohol with water. Cava has been found to be good for blood sugar management – it releases its sugar slowly into the body. Sugary mixed cocktails are great at creating hellish hangovers and are best to avoid.
S BEST GIFT EVER - De-stress by giving yourself a gift of happiness and wrapping up a sexy Christmas outfit and placing it under the tree for your lovely lady.

Veterans’ Unmet Mental Health Needs
Every dollar invested in evidence-based care for veterans with untreated mental health disorders results in $2.50 in health care savings over two years, according to the National Council for Behavioral Health. The report finds that if all 210,000 untreated veterans with PTSD and major depression received appropriate treatment, the $481 million investment would result in more than $1.2 billion in cost savings. To meet the unmet mental health needs of veterans, the report suggests expanding the role and funding of the nation’s network of community behavioral health centers.

Currently, 27% (657,000) veterans from recent service are using community-based care. More are moving from DOD-provided services to VA-provided services to community-based services.  As the nation’s specialists in treating mental health and addiction disorders, community-based centers are committed to outreach to returning veterans and to providing evidence-based care.

“Providing effective, proven treatments for our veterans is not just about saving money, it’s about saving lives,” says Jeannie Campbell, a veteran and executive vice president at the National Council. “Our veterans deserve the proper mental health services to support their amazing resilience and help them move toward recovery.”

The report calculates that of the 2.4 million active duty and reserves who were deployed since 2001, almost 30% will have a mental health condition. More than 18% will suffer from PTSD, major depression or a combination of both disorders. Less than half of returning veterans needing mental health services receive any treatment, according to the report. Of those receiving treatment for PTSD and major depression, only 30% are receiving evidence-based care. Untreated mental health disorders wreak havoc on the lives of veterans. One in three homeless men are veterans, and almost 60% of homeless veterans are minorities. The unemployment rate for veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan is some 40% greater than that of the general population.

Though Christmas cheer may seem like a good thing, you may want to hold off on Christmas carols and eggnog too early in the year. As it turns out, celebrating Christmas too early could be bad for your health.

According to Linda Blair, a clinical psychologist in the United Kingdom, playing Christmas music too early in the holiday season may affect mental health by triggering feelings of stress.

“Music goes right to our emotions immediately, and it bypasses rationality,” Blair told Sky News in 2017. “Christmas music is likely to irritate people if it’s played too loudly and too early.”

According to Blair, holiday music “might make us feel that we’re trapped - it’s a reminder that we have to buy presents, cater for people, organize celebrations.” This is a good thing for retailers, which is why so many stores start playing holiday music as soon as the calendar says Nov. 1.

“Some people will react to that by making impulse purchases, which the retailer likes,” Blair said. “Others might walk out of the shop. It’s a risk.”

According to an analysis by The Tampa Bay Times, Best Buy is the worst offender, putting their holiday music on rotation two months before Christmas. Other pre-season offenders include Sears and Kmart, but I guess it’s not really working out for them.




Wrist Straps for Bench Presses

Bench presses are good for giving your chest some great definition, but it can be at the expense of your wrists. Tightly wrapping your wrist strengthens the joint and ups the weight you press each time you work out.

Learn a New Move for Shoulder Health

In our attempts to bulk up and create the superhero physique that most guys long to get, it’s no secret that weight lifting is part of the equation. The problem with that is, weightlifting can go hand-in-hand with muscle and or joint injuries, which will only set back our workout regimen even more. The best way to combat and prevent injuries is to precede your lifting set with a flexibility exercise. So, before doing any deadlifts, try incorporating a rolling T or side plank before you lift the iron. Do a regular push up, and then at the top of it, roll into a side plank, rotate and do at least five on each side.

Gonorrhea is on The Rise

According to the Center for Disease Prevention, from 2016-2017 gonorrhea rates have doubled in men. It is an STD that is entirely treatable with a round of antibiotics and usually clears up in a week. The real risk is if it’s left to go untreated which can result in infertility. There are four significant symptoms to look for if you suspect that you might have contracted it. First is a discharge from your penis. Color or consistency can vary, but no amount of discharge is normal. Gonorrhea can affect the rectum area also, causing anal itching, blood, and/or discharge. You can contract gonorrhea from oral sex as well as intercourse, so some develop a sore throat and lymph nodes. Finally, the other symptom of the disease is pain or swelling in the groin area. If you are experiencing any of these, make an appointment with your doctor soon.

Beware of The Vampire
The vampire facial shot to popularity due to celebs like Kim Kardashian touting its benefits, but you might want to wait before you try the procedure yourself. There is an outside chance that you can catch Hepatitis C or HIV during the facial which draws the patient’s blood and then microneedles it back into their face. Buyer beware of these new fad facials.

Bears Creating Antibiotics

A team of scientists at Rutgers University has found a technology that could rapidly accelerates the development of life-saving antibiotics. And in the most of unusual of places— the saliva of the East Siberian brown bear. The bacteria from the bears’ saliva is tested to see if it can inhibit harmful bacteria such as Staph infections, according to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Microbes in wild animals are an unexplored area. The new technology, which allows each species to be tested individually, is a powerful tool for discovering antibiotics, and exploring new cures, says the study.

The Mental Health Comedian

Frank King was a successful comedian and “Tonight Show” writer for 20 years,— the only problem was that he suffered from multi-generational depression. His grandmother died by suicide and his aunt also took her own life. After his time as a writer at “The Tonight Show” was over, Frank decided that he wanted to end the stigma surrounding mental health and share his insights publicly to start the conversation. Today, he travels all over the country, breaking the ice and starting conversations about the taboo subject of mental health and suicide. He uses his own experiences with suicide and battles with depression using humor as a tool everyone can relate to. After almost every talk someone comes up to him and says that they thought they were the only one who had suicidal thoughts. He believes that where there is humor, there is hope. And where there is laughter, there is hope. Nobody dies laughing. To learn more about Frank and his mission visit

Opioid Crisis Grows

A new study recently released by the U.S. government shows that the opioid crisis is growing rapidly out of hand. In 2014, there were 5,000 deaths that occurred due to the drug Fentanyl, but in a report, the number of deaths due to the deadly drug had climbed to 30,000. Fentanyl is 50 times more potent than heroin and has become a significant part of the illegal drug supply in our country. Overall 72,287 people died from drug overdoses, and of that number 60,000 were opioid involved. The mounting problem from all this is the lack of access to treatment for those suffering from opioid addiction. There is a considerable stigma associated with addiction, and the treatment for it with drugs like Methadone or Buprenorphine is generally not covered by most insurance providers. There is also a massive shortage of treatment providers for those who do seek relief from their addiction. Politicians on both sides agree that something needs to be done to counter these alarming statistics. Unfortunately, there isn’t one blanket approach that will solve it. The study looks at which states have been able to reduce the opioid overdose death rate and how the rest of the country can adopt these practices and help overcome the epidemic as well.

Stand up

The average person spends about eight hours hunched over their desks, and or mobile devices. The problem with all this sitting around is too much of it can increase your risk of chronic disease and premature death. Health officials encourage us to move at least 30-60 minutes a day, and the Mayo Clinic says the body can only tolerate being in one position for about 20 minutes. So if you are deskbound— like most of us these days— every 10-15 minutes or so stop, stand up stretch and get your body moving a little bit. Another great way to encourage movement throughout the day is by purchasing wearable technology that encourage you to get in your 10,000 steps in a day.

Hearing Loss

It’s the most common sensory disorder in our country but according to a recent study by Merck Manuals, 59% of Americans rarely think about it. Most of those who participated in the survey admitted to engaging in an activity that can be detrimental to their health such as operating a power blower, operating a lawn mower, using earbuds or headphones, attending a concert or attending a sporting event. Most realize that if hearing loss runs in your family, you are more likely to experience it yourself. But, what most don’t understand is that the potential for damaging your ears is higher in your younger years. It’s not just a geriatric problem. Dr. Lustig who helped write the chapters on hearing loss says, “Here’s a good rule of thumb: If you have to speak above your normal tone of voice to be heard, chances are your surroundings are too loud.” The survey also found that about one in five Americans could benefit from a hearing aid. If you are noticing problems with your ears, don’t be afraid of the stigma and get a free consultation with a reputable hearing aid doctor in your area.



The Alzheimer’s Solution

New Program Gives Hope to Millions

By Howard T. Brody

Can a program that claims it can prevent and reverse the symptoms of cognitive decline really turn the clock back on Alzheimer’s disease? According to the husband and wife team who created the program and wrote the book about it, the answer is unequivocally yes.

In their new 318-page book “The Alzheimer’s Solution: A Breakthrough Program to Prevent and Reverse the Symptoms of Cognitive Decline at Every Age” published by Harper One, Drs. Dean and Ayesha Sherzai are challenging the notion that an Alzheimer’s diagnosis is a death sentence.

Based on 15 years of clinical research, the medical duo claims Alzheimer’s can be prevented and even early signs of cognitive decline can be reversed— by proactively making lifestyle changes that include proper nutrition, exercise, meditation, self-assessment and more.

“While it may be easier to blame a devastating disease like Alzheimer’s on a single gene, this false belief is killing millions,” explained Dr. Ayesha. “The truth is much harder to accept that we are bringing Alzheimer’s and dementia into our households by the choices we make every day.”

“Our comprehensive reviews, studies, and clinical data yield significant findings that have not been seen elsewhere in Alzheimer’s research,” added Dr. Dean. “The solution, we are now certain, doesn’t come in a pill, but in the way we live our lives.”

Often referred to as a ticking time bomb, Alzheimer’s disease has a staggering reach. Nearly 44 million people worldwide have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or related dementia and only one in four who have the disease have actually been diagnosed.

In the United States alone the numbers have reached what seem to be epidemic proportions. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Alzheimer’s Association and Alzheimer’s Disease International:

• Alzheimer’s affects an estimated 5.4 million Americans.

• One in nine adults are aged 65 and older, one in three adults are aged 85 and older, and two-thirds are women.

• African-Americans and Hispanics have higher affliction rates: African-Americans are two times more likely to get Alzheimer’s while Hispanics are one-and-a-half times more likely to get it.

• Adjusting for age, rates of Alzheimer’s disease deaths increased 89 percent between 2000 and 2014. It is the sixth leading cause of death among all adults in the U.S. and the fifth leading cause for those aged 65 or older.

• Someone in the U.S. develops Alzheimer’s every 66 seconds.

• By 2020 the projected number of people aged 65 or older with Alzheimer’s will be 5.8 million and by 2030 that number will be 8.4 million.

• Typical life expectancy after an Alzheimer’s diagnosis is four to eight years.

• One in nine adults aged 45 and older are experiencing Subjective Cognitive Decline (self-reported memory problems that have been getting worse over the past year).

Dedicated to educating people on the simple steps to long-term health and wellness through their work as co-directors of the Brain Health and Alzheimer’s Prevention Program at Loma Linda University Medical Center in California and believe their comprehensive program can prevent Alzheimer’s and improve cognitive function at all ages. If started early enough, it can build cognitive resilience and achieve one’s optimal brain health and capacity.

In their book Drs. Dean and Ayesha discuss the following:

• The NEURO Plan. The five essential factors for reducing cognitive disorders, which are nutrition, exercise, unwind, restore, optimize.

• A change of diet. Which foods help build the brain and which ones are the most damaging?

• A focus on fitness. How much exercise is needed and which types are best for the brain?

• The science of stress? What are the best ways to manage and reduce the destructive forms of stress?

• A look at how crucial restorative sleep is. How to improve sleep without the use of medications.

• The single activity that will rejuvenate and strengthen brain power.

• Alzheimer’s risk factors, both preventable (environmental and lifestyle) and non-preventable (genetic and bodily trauma).

For those wondering if perhaps the book is merely a gimmick to generate sales for the authors, the doctors make it very clear that there is no direct financial benefit as all book proceeds go toward the Brain Health Initiative, a nonprofit organization working to empower communities, families and individuals to achieve optimal brain health.
