Thursday, July 19 - Hormones - All questions answered.

Hormones are the chemical messengers of the body controlling many body functions, but they are affected by normal aging, prescription drugs, medical treatments and chronic health problems. This session openly discusses adult issues related to problems caused by hormonal imbalances such as relationship problems, loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, prostate problems, hot flashes and midnight sweats, vaginal dryness and miscellaneous sexual and other problems. A major part of this discussion is about conventional hormone replacement therapy verses bio-identical hormone balancing for improved sexual and overall health for both men and women.

Thursday, August 16 - Men's Health

As men age, they often encounter annoying issues with their prostates. This troublesome gland tends to enlarge with age and poor diet. Due to its location surrounding the urethra, the enlargement often affects a manís ability to urinate as well as introducing him to sexual problems.  Also, many men are diagnosed with prostate cancer and rushed into surgery or other aggressive treatment that may not be necessary. Men sometimes try to resolve these problems with the use of testosterone or over-the-counter supplements that can sometimes make the problems worse. In this session, we discuss how to rectify minor problems as well as how to intelligently deal with a prostate cancer diagnosis.
