Nutrition in its Purest Form:
As we’re sure you already know, most of our country’s food is grown using toxic chemicals, processed at high temperatures, irradiated or pasteurized to make sure no living organisms survive(!), and then “fortified” with ingredients that most of us can’t pronounce. In the process, much of the nutrients and enzymes that our bodies crave are lost, or at least severely compromised.

Exercise Ball Exercises

Stott2The Exercise ball is one of the best and unique fitness tools that is out there today. It is also one of the least utilized pieces of equipment. Aquilino Cosani, an Italian engineer, first manufactured the ball to be a toy back in 1963. It wasn’t until a physical therapist, Mary Quinton, utilized the ball for children with neurological disorders. The exercise ball did not make it to the US until the 1970 and it seems that the general public is just starting to get aware of its benefits.  Exercise ball exercises are fun and exciting.

What makes the exercise ball exercises so effective is that it forces the user to use many stabilizing muscles to balance while performing the exercise. This means that more muscle fibers are firing, you are burning more calories and because of the position that you are usually in, it puts a lot of emphasis on your core (rectus abdominis, lower back, transverse abdominis, internal and external oblique’s.) Everyone seems to want to have tight abs, this is the reason why I wanted to write this article for one of two reasons.


Core Training at Power Systems

One important reason is that Fitness Exercise Balls are a fun workout for the whole family and two, is the art of how to Choose the Best Exercise Ball is just as fun.

Whether you are wishing to lose weight or tone up muscles using fitness exercise balls and resistance tubes can prove very effective in achieving your goals. As you will soon discover when considering purchasing an exercise ball or resistance tubes, these pieces of fitness equipment have many different types to choose from.  So choosing the right equipment for you can prove somewhat of a challenge.


When it comes to losing weight and toning up your muscles, an exercise ball and the right exercises are very important. You could if you want spend money on a gym membership but having the right inexpensive tools can prove just as effective.

Do you use yoga to help you get fit? If you do, have you considered using a yoga exercise ball to help with your poses? In fact this piece of equipment is not only useful to those who already doing yoga regularly but for those who are only just starting to use it. For those who do yoga on a regular basis will find that helps to make the yoga exercises more of a challenge.

With ball exercises the secret is to know that exercise balls are unstable for obvious reasons. Using an exercise ball can be quite fun. The difficulty comes from the balls roundness, which also contribute to giving you a tremendous workout.


Try the exercise ball the next time at the gym or try an exercise using a stability ball besides doing crunches. That is what I meant when I previously stated that this was one of the most least utilized pieces of equipment at the gym. The exercise ball happens to be one most dynamic pieces of equipment at that gives you a huge range of exercise options.

One example would be a basic squat, Position the exercise ball between your lower back and the wall, and move your feet out about 8 to 12 inches. When you squat you want three 90 degree angles. These 90 angles are at your hips, knees and ankles. Your shins and upper body are to be perpendicular and your thighs parallel with the ground.

If this sounds too easy add dumbbells for weight. Always remember that for proper instruction be sure to get yourself some simple to follow DVD’s or hire a personal trainer. It makes it even more fun to gather a few friends into the mix and you can each share the cost for the DVD’s and/or trainer. If adding dumbbell weight is still too easy, extend one leg out and perform single leg squats. There are few people that I know who have the leg strength for this exercise.


A push up is another exercise that have multiple options that can be performed.  You can perform this exercise with your hands on the exercise ball and feet on the ground. Added difficulty would be to place your feet on a bench and keeping your hands on the exercise ball.

You can also place your hands on the ground and feet or knees on the exercise ball. To add difficultly you can try diamond push-ups or traveling push-ups. Traveling push-ups is where you move side to side while performing the push-up. You start by doing a normal push-up and then at the top, move the left hand to the right. The right hand then goes out further to the right. You would perform another push-up and move back to the left by moving your right hand to the left and then the left further to the left.

These are just two small examples. There are many, many more. I would like to invite you to do some further investigation on this and try a few of the exercise ball exercises out. There are thousands of examples out there. The benefits will be a stronger core, possibly quicker weight loss and make your body more functional and less prone to injury.

High Blood Pressure Reduction Measures

High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is a major health problem that affects many people, a lot of which don’t even realize that they have it. Often, people are told that changes in their diet and exercise habits are enough to control blood pressure, without the use of medication.


House of Nutrition

Reducing your sodium intake is one of the most important factors in reducing your blood pressure level. Those affected with high blood pressure often claim that reducing their sodium intake reduces their blood pressure as well. It is important to learn which foods are high in sodium and limit your intake or avoid them all together.

Eating more fruits and vegetables and even some grains increases your intake of important vitamins, minerals, and fiber. However with our busy lifestyles we can hardly find the time to stop at the store and take the time to sort thru the groceries we need to maintain a healthy routine, however I found that studies suggest that people with a diet high in these foods and low in fats can reduce blood pressure in a small, but significant way.


House of Nutrition

Adding exercise to this change in diet can improve the blood pressure reduction. It helps to prevent and to control hypertension, and it is said that people who are active in exercise have lower death rates than their sedentary counterparts, even when they have the same blood pressure. An added bonus is that studies suggest that exercise not only reduces the risk for cardiovascular and other diseases, but can help prevent obesity, which is another high blood pressure risk factor.


Better Health in Just 30 days!

Exercise is said to be the foundation for successful behavioral change programs. Gym memberships can be a hassle, so I investigated several health and fitness options available that with a small investment you can now own a great home gym, and with your home gym is just a few clicks away. Exercise has been shown to make people feel positive about themselves and helps to reduce stress, a factor that not only raises blood pressure, but makes you feel less inclined to stick to the positive plans you’ve set in motion.


House of Nutrition

Eating well and exercising are the cornerstone to reducing your blood pressure level. However, they are not the only factors to a successful blood pressure reduction. Limiting your alcohol and caffeine intake can make an extreme difference. You should strive to drink these things only in moderation, or not at all. If you smoke, quitting can also make a profound difference.

These are not things to be taken lightly. You may find that you cannot simply give these things up. In fact, in order to completely rid yourself of these behaviors can take months, even a year or more in some instances!

Reducing stress is another highly important factor in reducing your blood pressure. However choosing the right stress relief program just for you can be all time consuming and is a lifelong task, but can prove to be one of the most important things you can do for your health. By seeing the vast variety offered.   If you find that you have stress that seems out of control, taking a stress management workshop may be in your future.

Though it is said that diet and exercise can reduce the need for blood pressure medication, it is important to discuss any and all lifestyle changes with your doctor, who can instruct you in any reduction of your current medication dosages.

Family Health

Healthy families

Good health is critical for our sense of well-being and our ability to enjoy life. As adults we easily understand this. Yet many adults in our society still lean towards convenience rather than health. Even for their children, I see too many well to do parents in their fifty thousand dollar cars waiting in line at some fast food drive thru as their kids rustle impatiently in the back seat. They can’t seem to wait to get their mouths filled with processed by-products and saturated fats.

Sad to see that today’s parents as a personal choice would rather work long hours to earn enough to drive a nice car than to invest that time to feed their children what they need in order to thrive and nourish their mind and bodies.

VeggieTales.com

As time passes they scratch their heads wondering why their children get older quicker with deteriorating health, and in fact many adults cannot believe it when they see what appears to be a grown man in his 30’s be astounded at the fact this man is only 16 years old and suffering the consequences to such convenience.

In reading the outstanding reporting on health and multitudes of sites on this internet talking about how our youth is suffering major complications, ranging from diabetes to cancer to even experiencing odd growth defects such as hair loss at age eighteen or having urinary dysfunctions in their 20’s really does not surprise me.

I am no doctor by any means, however it is not brain surgery or an eight year degree that it takes to figure out what is disabling the health of our future society, it all boils down to the simplistic nature that if we take life as a convenience and not slowing down in order to keep up with lifestyles and technology, our future generations will end up with a lifespan of 40yrs and not 80yrs as we have in our current generation.

Today we get amazed at the oldest living person reaching only 100yrs, but if we look back at when our life was “Natural” our race lived to be over 200yrs old.

Day to day and hour to hour our human health is becoming less and less immune to viruses and infections, and for some reason we are believing that the viruses are the ones getting stronger. In reality it’s both, we as a society health is getting weaker and thus the viruses are in fact getting stronger.

As we continue to produce more and more with less and less, there is a dynamic in health we are overlooking or simply choosing to ignore. That dynamic is that we are not taking the time to educate ourselves or even our children about health, or even bother with learning what it takes to grow and thrive in an ever deteriorating world.

New Mood with 5-htp

We all stand in awe and ask, what is happening? And why is it happening? And yet ignore the real question, Why is it important?

We get hypnotized and desensitized all at the same time. We sympathize with the parent that is having trouble with a sick child and yet the next thing we do is take our children out for a processed pizza pie and wash it all down with corn syrup and phosphoric acid (soda).

Sometimes I just want to walk over to them and ask what they feel when they hear about someone suffering from diabetes or cancer, and just watch them as they answer while continuing to feed their kids this garbage. My next question I’d ask is how you would react if you had to deal with the same health issue only with your children being the ones affected?

468x60 Adventure Books

Would I be surprised at the answer to that question? Probably not, because it would most likely be one leaning towards the fact they believe it won’t happen to them. Sad but true, and in all honesty my goal is to routinely educate and promote a healthy lifestyle and well-being.

Of course I am one to be the first to admit that I was once in their shoes. I remember there were many times I couldn’t wait to get out of school and rush over to our afterschool hangout and get me a four pattied burger, fries and a chocolate dairy shake to wash it all down with, an American tradition right?

All I can say now is I am glad I wised up. And to think I’d ever want to drink down a large cup of carbonated phosphoric acid sweetened with corn syrup and caramel coloring added for appearance just twists my stomach to the point I lose my appetite anyways.

Why is it Important?

Good health is everything as the saying goes, we are given one home to live in for the rest of our lives, one place to dwell in spiritually and emotionally, and if someone were to compliment me that I look good, I always know that it’s not the clothes I’m wearing but the hanger I hang them on.

So many ways to gauge the importance of healthy living, another important misconception that I would like to mention is that when I am told the old adage “You only live once so enjoy!” I am now able to respond, “I’m sorry but I live every day and enjoy every minute, and I will only die once.”

When I get overwhelmed and busy, the first thing to go is my attention to my physical well-being and in turn start a downward spiral, with less energy to take care of myself, leading to less care, and again to less energy. What I have seen to be the most beautiful thing in my life is finding ways to integrate taking care of my physical, mental, spiritual, and financial self all together.

Living in a place that I am able to walk to work, and stay connected to my family and organizations where I can volunteer that also serve my community and meet my need to contribute, while still nurturing friendships that feed my spiritual hunger is when all these things are connected. I find it easier to flow in life, and not only stop the downward spiral, but make it spiral up!

“True sense of health is being able to contribute to my longevity and healing while at the same time rejuvenate what I thought I’d lost.”

In short I can say that compared to most, in general I am living a healthier lifestyle with less and expect a longer life expectancy with a better self-reported health status. But not everyone can expect the same health advantages. Even knowing that all can slip out of control in an instant, I am continually grateful at the knowledge I have learned and give much pride to pass that knowledge onto others as a form of contribution to hopefully change a life for the better.

Not only is good health an immense value to me, I also help my community benefit with what I have learned. I can still say that I have not changed my habits, I just replaced my habits with better ones, and that has relieved the pressures of failing.

BestwaytoHealth.Com is a way for me to not only share these experiences but also to educate myself with all the tools I need to help promote a healthier lifestyle for my children and family and in turn help others do the same.

Since I began this site not more than seven months ago, I realized that there is a great lack of sites offering great information in a platform that is easy to navigate without getting bored reading lengthy articles that seem to go nowhere for the sole purpose of advertising products.

My desire is to give the gift of health, freedom and prosperity to the world. Our site has reached over 60 thousand readers in the last two months who genuinely prefer a healthy lifestyle, though most are still struggling in coping with life’s issues, they still seem to manage 10 minutes of their day to read thru these articles, and take the time to reward us with outstanding comments.

BestwaytoHealth.Com

“A site that I expect in 2013 to grow immensely with interactions, videos and more.”

It is you, our readers like yourself, who has helped us with the input we need to continue educating our society to live the bestway to health they possibly can and experience their path to a better you.

BestwaytoHealth.Com wants nothing but the best in a healthy society, by cooking up a perspective on health, well-being and physical fitness with overall mental health that includes a touch of alpha mind power, sexy and provocative muscle, exercises to relieve stress while at the same time taking you around the world by seeking out the best food, grounding meditation, equipment, exercise routines for women, leisure locations for quiet mind yoga and fitness practices.

Indian Cuisine – Your Path to a Better You!

Indian cuisine encompasses a wide variety of regional cuisines native to India. Given the range of diversity in soil type, climate and occupations, these cuisines vary significantly from each other and use locally available spices, herbs, vegetables, and fruits.  Indian food is also heavily influenced by religious and cultural choices.

The development of these cuisines has been shaped by Hindu and Jain beliefs, in particular vegetarianism which is a common dietary trend in Indian society.  There has also been Arab influence on North Indian cuisine from the years of Mughal and Delhi Sultanate rule.

Indian cuisine has been and is still evolving, as a result of the nation’s cultural interactions with other societies.  Historical incidents such as foreign invasions, trade relations and colonialism have also played a role in introducing certain foods to the country. For instance, potato, a staple of North Indian diet was brought to India by the Portuguese, who also introduced chilies and breadfruit.

Indian cuisine has also shaped the history of international relations, the spice trade between India and Europe is often cited by historians as the primary catalyst for Europe’s Age of Discovery.  Spices were bought from India and traded around Europe and Asia. It has also influenced other cuisines across the world, especially those from Southeast Asia, the British Isles and the Caribbean.

Indian cuisine reflects a 5000-year history of various groups and cultures interacting with the subcontinent, leading to diversity of flavors and regional cuisines found in modern-day India. Later British and Portuguese influence added to the already diverse Indian Cuisine.

The beginnings of Indian Cuisine lie with the ancient Indian civilizations of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro.  Since then, Indian Food has been influenced by a number of factors and each of these has made the food of India known the world over.

Experience yourself the diverse and wonderful dishes and experiment with cooking and tasting some of the most popular food recipes of the various regions of India. Hindu culture has a distinct style of cooking and eating.

The staples of Indian cuisine are rice, atta (a special type of whole wheat flour), and at least five dozen varieties of pulses, the most important of which are chana, toor, urad, and mung.  Chana is used in different forms, may be whole or processed in a mill that removes the skin. Most Indian curries are fried in vegetable oil, however many substitutes can be used such as coconut oil or even mustard seed oil.

The most important spices in Indian cuisine are the chili pepper, black mustard seed, cumin, turmeric, fenugreek, ginger, coriander and hing.  Another very important spice is garam masala which is usually a powder of five or more spices comprising of cardamom, cinnamon and clove.  Some leaves that are widely used is the bay leaf, coriander leaf, and mint leaf.  Typically in south Indian cuisine, curry leaves are used commonly.  In sweet dishes, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, saffron and essence of rose petal are used.

Indian Chinese cuisine originated in the 19th century among the Chinese community of Calcutta, during the immigration of Hakka Chinese from Canton (present-day Guangzhou) seeking to escape the Opium Wars and political instability in the region. Exposure to local Indian cuisine, they incorporated many spices and cooking techniques into their own cuisine, thus creating a unique fusion of Indian and Chinese cuisine.

After 1947, many Cantonese immigrants fleeing political repression under Mao Zedong, opened their own restaurants in Calcutta, whose dishes combined aspects of Indian cuisine with Cantonese cuisine. Indian Chinese cuisine is heavily derived from traditional Chinese cuisine, it bears little resemblance to its Chinese counterpart. The dishes tend to be flavored with cumin, coriander seeds, and turmeric, which with a few regional exceptions, are not traditionally associated with Chinese cuisine. Chili, ginger, garlic and yogurt are also frequently used in dishes.

 

Popular dishes include Chicken Manchurian, Chicken lollipop, Chili chicken, Hakka noodles, Hunan chicken, and Szechwan fried rice. Soups such as man chow soup and sweet corn soup are very popular, whereas famous desserts include ice cream on honey-fried noodles and date pancakes. Indians consider a healthy breakfast (known in North India as nashta) important. They generally prefer to drink tea or coffee with breakfast, though food preferences vary regionally. North Indian people prefer roti, parathas, and a vegetable dish, accompanied by achar (pickles) and some curd. People of western India prefer dhokla and milk and South Indians prefer idlis and dosas, generally accompanied by various chutneys.

Lunch in India usually consists of a main dish of rice in the south and east, or whole wheat rotis in the north and west. It typically includes two or three kinds of vegetables, and sometimes items such as kulcha, naan, or parathas. Along with dessert, paan (betel leaves), which aid digestion, are often eaten after lunch in parts of India. Indian families often gather for “evening breakfast,” similar to tea time to talk, drink tea and eat snacks. Dinner is considered as the main meal of the day.

There are many dietary restrictions that people follow based on the religion or faith they profess. Muslims in India do not eat pork and many Hindu communities consider beef taboo. Since it is believed that Hindu scriptures condemn cow slaughter, beef consumption has been banned in many states in India. Followers of the Swaminarayan sect do not eat garlic and onions because they are advised against it in the Vachanamrut. Jains follow a strict form of vegetarianism, known as Jain vegetarianism, which in addition to being completely vegetarian, also excludes potatoes and other root vegetables because when the root is pulled up, organisms that live around the root also die.

Traditionally, meals in India were eaten while seated either on the floor or on very low stools or cushions. Food is most often eaten with the right hand rather than cutlery. Often roti is used to scoop curry without allowing it to touch the hands. In the wheat-producing north, a piece of roti is gripped with the thumb and middle finger and ripped off while holding the roti down with the index finger. Traditional serving styles vary regionally throughout India. Contact with other cultures has affected Indian dining etiquette. For example, the Anglo-Indian middle class commonly uses spoons and forks, as is traditional in Western culture.

In South India, cleaned banana leaves, which can be disposed of after meals, are used for serving food. When hot food is served on banana leaves, the leaves add distinctive aromas and taste to the food. Leaf plates are less common today, except on special occasions.

Pet Health 101

Dog n CatEvery pet requires different and specific needs. That’s why it is extremely important to select the right pet for you or your family. In this article we cover the different needs associated with certain pets. Though there are so many pets in our environment today, we will try to cover most of the most common. If for any reason you would like to see coverage on a specific pet that you may have that is out of the ordinary, simply comment below and we will attempt to publish one especially for you.

 

 

PetAlive Natural Remedies for Pets

 

Puppies and Dogs;
This section contains information about the things your dog needs to have a safe and comfortable environment.

The ideal environment for your puppy or dog;
To ensure dogs have a comfortable environment it is important for them to have their own dog bed where they can rest undisturbed. Poisonous or hazardous items in the home or garden should be kept safely out of reach. Safety when travelling in a vehicle is also important and dogs should ideally travel on the back seat with a seatbelt or secured behind a dog guard. It is also vital that all dogs get the opportunity to exercise on a daily basis.

A comfortable dog bed;
A cozy bed is important for dogs. This should be kept in a quiet, dry, draught-free area. Make sure you choose one that can be cleaned easily and thoroughly, and do this regularly.

Cleaning up after your dog;
Part of providing a suitable environment is making it clean and hygienic. Dog feces can transmit diseases, as well as parasites such as worms. Make sure you clean up after your dog using a plastic bag or ’pooper scooper‘, especially if there are children around. Dog owners and people responsible for dogs have a legal obligation to do this when in a public place, under the Clean Neighborhoods and Environment Act 2005.

BELT UP – Travel safety concerns as dogs roam free in the car.

When it comes to a dog’s safe travel, the responses are not as positive. 19% of owners state that their dog travels on the back seat without a seat belt and 18% that their dog is in the boot without a dog guard.

62% of dog owners ensure their dog sleeps in its own pet bed, but 17% of owners allow their dog to sleep either on their bed or on that of a family member.


When it comes to exercise, results indicate that dog owners are good at keeping their pets fairly active. 75% of dogs get taken for a walk at least once a day and 87% play in the garden daily. A further 69% play with toys daily. 58% of dog owner’s state that three or more exercise activities as well as walking is available to their dog every day – whether this is play in the garden, playing with toys, agility training or swimming.

The ideal diet for your puppy or dog;
Commercial dog food is preferable to a homemade diet. It is not easy to achieve the correct balance of nutrients if you make a dog’s diet yourself. Treats should only be given for training purposes or on a very occasional basis, and on days when a treat is fed, the amount of food given in the dog’s main meal should be reduced. Life stage (i.e. whether puppy, junior, adult or senior) and packet guidelines as well as weight and body shape should be taken into account when choosing what and how much to feed a dog.

Puppies

When should a puppy start to eat solid food?
Puppies are usually ready to eat solid food when they are about five weeks old.

How often should I feed my puppy?
Initially, puppies need four meals a day but this can be reduced to three a day at about 12 weeks. At six months, they can have two meals a day, which can continue for the rest of their life.

Dogs

What should I feed my dog?
Your dog needs a healthy, balanced diet that meets all their nutritional needs.
Feeding a complete, commercial dog food is normally preferable to a homemade diet. It’s not easy to achieve the correct balance of nutrients if you make your dog’s diet yourself.

Do dogs of different ages need different food?
One of the best ways of making sure you give your dog the necessary nutrients is to feed according to ‘life stage’. This means feeding a different diet depending on whether your dog is a puppy, adult or senior dog, because dogs of different ages have different nutrient requirements. For example, puppies need more calories in their food because they are so energetic. Several leading brands of commercially available dog food offer different foods for different life stages.

How much food should I give my dog?
Follow the packet feeding guidelines so that you know how much to feed. Weigh the food out to check you’re getting it right. Feeding the right amount of food is important because obesity is the commonest nutritional problem seen by vets and causes health problems such as diabetes, heart disease and arthritis.

How often should I feed my dog?
It’s generally best to feed an adult dog twice a day. Avoid feeding your dog immediately before travelling, to avoid travel sickness, or within an hour before or after vigorous exercise as this can lead to a dangerous condition called ’bloat’.

What treats can I give my dog?
Most dog foods these days are complete, meaning they contain all the nutrients that a dog needs, in the right amounts. If extra food is given, as treats, your dog must do something with the extra calories. If your dog isn’t being exercised enough, the calories will be turned into fat.

Kittens and Cats;
Kittens and cats, like all animals, need five things to be healthy and happy; these are called the five welfare needs. Under the Animal Welfare Act (2006) all owners need to provide these five things for the pets they keep. The sections below give information on how to meet the five welfare needs for kittens and cats.

The ideal environment for your kitten or cat;
Cats need somewhere comfortable to sleep and rest undisturbed, as well as constant access to safe hiding places. Cats often feel most secure when they are high up, so they should be given safe access to resting places on top of furniture such as cupboards or shelves. If cats are living together in the same household they must be provided with enough of the things they need (e.g. food and water bowls, litter trays, cat beds etc.).

A general rule is that owners should provide as many of these items as the number of cats, plus one (so a two-cat household should have three litter trays). They should be positioned around the house so that the cats do not have to come in to contact with each other if they do not want to.

A comfortable place to sleep and rest;

What type of bed does my cat need?
Cats need a cozy bed in a quiet, dry, draught-free area. Some cats prefer soft beds with a roof – especially suitable for a shy cat – whereas others prefer an open basket lined with soft bedding. The bedding should be easily cleaned and washed weekly.

I have more than one cat – how many beds do they need?
If you have more than one cat you will need to provide separate beds for each cat, which are well apart from each other in your house. A good general rule is to provide one more sleeping area than the number of cats – so if you have two cats, provide three beds.

Do cats need access to high places?
Cats feel safest when they are high up, and this gives them a sense of security in their living environment. They should have safe access to places like shelves or tops of cupboards.

Do cats need somewhere to hide?
Cats like places where they can go to hide. If they don’t have anywhere suitable they can become stressed. Ideally they need an enclosed bed or box, or safe access to underneath a chair or bed.

The ideal diet for your kitten or cat;
Cats are true carnivores, meaning they have to eat certain nutrients that are only found in meat or commercial cat food. It is preferable to feed a complete commercial cat food to achieve the correct balance of nutrients. Cats do not need treats and should only be given healthy treats occasionally, if at all, to avoid becoming obese. A cat’s age, weight and shape, alongside packet feeding guidelines and veterinary advice, should be taken into account when deciding how much to feed a cat.

Kittens

When should a kitten start to eat solid food?
Kittens start to eat solid foods from about three weeks and are fully weaned at about eight weeks.

How often should I feed my kitten?
At first they need small meals often (about four or five a day) but by about six months, two meals a day are usually fine. This can continue throughout their adult life, depending on your cat’s preference.

It’s a good idea to weigh out your cat’s food at the start of the day, following the packet feeding guidelines. Then you can put the entire measured amount down at once, give it as several small meals or divide it into a meal for morning and one for evening. It depends on the cat’s preference and your lifestyle but you should try to cater for your cat’s preferences as far as you can.

What treats can I give my cat?
Most cat foods these days are complete, meaning they contain all the nutrients that a cat needs, in the right amounts. If extra food is given, as treats, your cat must do something with the extra calories. If your cat isn’t exercising enough (which can be a problem with cats kept permanently indoors), the calories will be turned into fat.  Cat obesity is a big problem and causes health problems such as diabetes, arthritis and heart disease.

You can show your affection for your cat in ways other than food. Lots of cats enjoy playing games with their owners, as well as affection. You don’t need to use food to show cats that you love them. If you can’t resist feeding treats once in a while, give a small amount of lean meat. Reduce the amount of food in their main meals that day, so that the overall amount fed stays the same.

Juicing For Health

NutritionThroughout the world, we all know that juicing is part of a beneficial way to a healthier life. Juicing on a regular basis has shown to increase energy, vitality and overall well-being. Juicing has become popular since the amount of Vegetables and Fruits the average person would need to consume for an improved lifestyle would be so immense that it would result on an ongoing regimen of eating all day long and every day. Constantly purchasing, preparing and masticating would require an all time consuming and tedious habit.

Most of our time is spent working, providing and fulfilling responsibilities for our employers and families. Leaving very little time in between for joyful activities we as individuals like to partake in much less eating healthy or even sleeping sleeping. So if we were to add in the necessary time to shop for, preparing and eating what our bodies need to become and stay healthy, it would simply not get done and eventually forgotten all together. Therefore we suffer the consequences thru debilitating our health.

That’s where the importance of juicing comes into the picture. Finding a juicer that not only is able to juice fruits but vegetables at the same time and combining these into an easy step can be a tedious task all together, so we took our time in reviewing some of the best juicers on the market and found one that fits all the categories we were looking for. Not only can this particular juicer take care of fruits and vegetables easily, it also gives you the added benefit of extracting the “MILK” from the most important aspects of your daily diet, favorite nuts and seeds.

Making your own home made Almond Milk, or butters is no easy task for most juicers available to the average consumer. A machine required to make nut milks and butters would mean stepping up to the industrialization area and have a machine that barely fits inside your garage. Now for the first time, you can experience all this in just a square foot of kitchen counter space.

Introducing the The Jay Kordich PowerGrind Pro, a BestwaytoHealth.Com favorite

The Jay Kordich PowerGrind Pro, revolutionizes juicing! Its patented new technology delivers more juice and nutrients per ounce of produce, stretching your food dollar. It’s a hybrid, using both extracting and grinding to deliver the best of both types of juicers.

Jay’s 60 years of experience in sales and service of juicers has enabled him to create this superior juicer, better than any other on the market.

Juice for Life Juicers

Reviews;
Five Stars! This juicer works perfectly
By Maxwell Johnson “Cook, Musician and Teacher”

Unlike many people who write juicer reviews, I am not a long-time juicer. In fact, despite being a graduate of one of the premier culinary schools in America and having worked as a professional chef, I have never juiced anything in my life. A friend who is very much into healthy eating persuaded me to try some of his various juice combinations and after a taste or two I knew I had to have one. Then followed lots of research to find the best choice for my pocketbook and my lifestyle. As a sometime kitchen professional, I have a fondness for “commercial” equipment and so I ended up lusting over a Norwalk. But $2500 for a juicer the size of Wrigley Field with a hydraulic press…too much.

I debated long and hard over centrifugal versus auger or gear driven machines. Now, I should stop here for a disclaimer. I do not drink juice to detoxify my liver or to prevent/treat cancer, heart disease, gallstones, or flat feet. I drink it because I like the taste and because it gets raw fruit and vegetables into my body in a way that has to be healthy. Please, I do not need any Gerson folks or other enthusiasts to comment telling me that I should…you-fill-in. Don’t take that as a put-down. I respect the choices people make for their health and, in fact, many juicing enthusiasts are doubtless much healthier than I.

Juice For Life Power Juicers

The implication of this is that I don’t seek out organic produce unless I can get it cheap, nor do I worry about how much of the good stuff is going to be lost to oxidation if there is foam in the juice. That just isn’t who I am.

Because I no longer have a scullery worker to wash up behind my efforts, I wanted something that was easy to clean. Because I enjoy the product a lot more than the process, I wanted a machine that didn’t require me to do a lot of food prep. Because I’m not wasteful by nature, I wanted a device that extracted as much juice as possible.

I was drawn to the Breville Juice Fountain Elite. It is hefty stainless steel and you can dump whole apples or beets into it without cutting or chopping. Fast. Easy. But only a one-year warranty, a well-documented tendency to throw food all over the kitchen and considerable commentary about its limited ability to extract maximum juice. I looked at juicers from Omega, Green Star, Kuvings, Champion, Hurom…the list goes on and on. While they got good reviews, there were also comments about durability, size, speed, and so on.

Seen On TV Products

I chose a lesser-known juicer, The Jay Kordich PowerGrind Pro, The description of the innards is a bit vague, even on Jay’s website so let me tell you exactly how it works. In essence, it is a centrifugal juicer. It shreds the fruit and vegetables and spins them against a fine, cone-shaped stainless steel filter, literally slinging out the juice. The difference is that surrounding the shredder disk is a grinding ring maybe 5/16″ wide which mates with a similar ring mounted on the top housing.

The motor runs at a substantially slower speed than most centrifugal juicers but much, much faster than an auger/gear machine. The produce is shredded and then ground between the two rings, which are positioned just a fraction of a millimeter apart. The result is very dry pulp. After juicing a bag of apples, a couple of pears, ginger, celery, and carrots, I found that I could pick up a handful of the pulp and squeeze really hard yielding only a few drops of unextracted juice.

“Cleanup takes about 3-5 minutes.”

“We recommend this one without hesitation.”

Choices thru Consequence

Decision

Choices thru Consequence

Good health is foundational for the sense of personal, societal, physical and mental well being. The ability to enjoy life means the necessity to evaluate every choice that is presented from the results of previous choices individuals have been taught or made for themselves thus learning. During the span of life, since birth society is conditioned to making choices. The consequences of the choices determine how to live life.

 

Seeing fire for the first time, the desired choices are to touch it, the consequence is getting burned, and from there on out we know that the next time fire is seen, the choice will not be to touch it and simply get burned.

Yet in certain aspects in life as transitioning to the various stages, from birth to death, learning to live life not based on the choice but rather determined by the consequence faced, therefore subjecting into a conditioning of living in fear of consequence. A perfect example of this is thru decisions made towards health and well being.

Over a lifetime, realizing that the consequence of not taking care of our health by subjecting our bodies to constant consumption of unhealthy food choices and deter from daily exercise has a detrimental consequence. Sickness, disease, obesity and the labels go on and on. Yet continuing to make poor choices based on a desire or given need and not the consequence.

Life Extension Special Membership Offer

A family will tend to raise their children with the choices of the lack of fulfilled desires that as children themselves were not privileged too, by either a poor economic state of the parents or by the discipline of not getting everything they as children desired. In today’s technological world, children are subjected to a huge amount of information, so vast that the need for parental education has simply almost become obsolete.

A simple one word question a child would be to ask, is “why?” In today’s environment the answer to that very infamous word is simply typed into a search bar and alas, the consequence is that everything on that word pops up. We can find pages and pages of results linking more and more pages to more results and so on until eternity. So vast that it would boggle any educated mind.

So my question is, as an adult, educated and ever knowing as we consider ourselves to be. “Why?” do we continue to make poor choices in our diets knowing that the consequences are all the labels I mentioned prior?

If we are amazed after a doctor’s visit when we are told we are diabetic, yet not realize that the daily overdose of sugar and other various toxins induced into our pancreas causing it to shut down completely or excite it to the point of overproducing insulin, could have been caused by the everyday abuse we have become so accustomed too. Like eating processed products with high contents of corn syrups, caffeine and sugars, drinking a two liter of soda every day, or simply looking forward to consuming that caramel macchiato every morning at the local coffee house.

You see, the consequence as a sick society, is the choices of learning that speeding would eventually lead to a costly ticket, how many of us still speed regardless? Yet we abuse our bodies daily while knowing the ramifications of disease. It astoundingly amazes me that as I sit and read a menu at a local restaurant, the choices that most people would order would be a two to three course meal or simply eat their favorite craving they have at the time that got them in there in the first place. While I on the other hand look at the same menu I have seen many times before with better choices and end up loosing my appetite just by imagining what is entering my body and the ramifications it may have as I age.

Life Extension Blood Testing

Our thinking habits;

Why do we deter from physical exercise or make the choices to stop the dieting, or simply give in to our cravings with consequence? To me the answer is simple. Because the consequence is how we make our choices. If we are ok with the inevitable consequence of poor health choices, the saying goes to justify “We only live once”, instead choosing to realize “We live every day, we only die once”. Thus changing the way we see things.

So here we are, we awake as the alarm clock sounds and get ready for our day to day knowing we have a set time to accomplish all we have to face. The mere idea of the choice of having to set the alarm clock one hour earlier to start our day with exercise makes the average Joe cringe. We know that if we do not exercise regularly the onset consequences of numerous health issues will eventually catch up with us in due time. So we tend to procrastinate regardless and make excuses why we can’t.

Eat Healthy

This thinking can easily be changed by considering that after exercise we will be more energetic, and more awake as our bodies received a greater amount of oxygen. We can exchange the sugary morning cereal with Ugh! Dairy milk that we followed by a cup of coffee with pancakes and syrup along with a side of sausage and or bacon. Instead choose to drink a glass of fresh juiced beets, leaves and all, mixed with orange juice. Pour a nice glass of Almond milk and eat instead a boiled or poached egg with sprouted grain toast, and realize the fact that this has the same sugary satisfaction and natural energy while also being just as fulfilling.

Changing the way we think can and is obviously a healthier alternative to help keep us stay alive much longer and in a better state of mind to handle the day. If we look at this in such a way that if we don’t do it this way we will get a disease we subject to the fear and we can then easily procrastinate and say “odds are it won’t happen”.

Swai Basil in Almond Milk

Swai Lemon and BasilLike many people interested in healthful eating, I strive to incorporate more fish into my diet, especially varieties like Swai, Salmon and Herring, which contain plenty of heart-healthy Omega 3 fatty acids. Problem is, fresh seafood costs a bundle.

When I visited my local fish monger. I couldn’t believe my eyes at nearly $20 a pound for swordfish, halibut, sole, and $9 for trout, Fresh Chilean Sea Bass at nearly $25 per pound! which in the past had always been tasty and less costly alternative.

I always opt for “wild caught”, I investigate the waters it came from and ascertain it has not been frozen. Fresh is key when it comes to great fish.

Live Superfoods - The Raw Superfoods Superstore

The bestway to tell that fresh fish is not fishy smelling or tasting is simply buying it fresh caught and preferably whole.  The eyes are clear and it does not smell. When commercial fish has been caught, immediately frozen on the boat then de-thawed for processing, prepared and packaged and then again frozen for shipping to the consumer’s market, where it is once again de-thawed and sold is when you run the risk of getting poor quality, smelly fish and of course the price will reflect that.

Ever since prices started climbing, I’ve seen an influx of alien species, at least particularly at my neighborhood supermarkets, which cater to customers who, frankly, can’t afford to plunk down $20 a pound for fish.

One economical option popping up at many stores is Swai, which is native to Southeast Asia – Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia — and sells locally for around $3.99 a pound. Since I knew nothing about Swai, I searched it out on the internet and these are my findings. Swai, along with Basa and Tra, two related varieties also appearing at more and more stores, belong to what’s called the Pangasius family and they’re similar in character to catfish.


We'll Cook the Food, You'll Lose the Weight!

In fact, sometimes simply referred to in the U.S. only as catfish, and farmed in the waters off the Mississippi. (Be sure to look for country of origin labeling at the fish counter to determine whether your catfish is from the Mekong Delta or the Mississippi Delta). Swai is a soft white-flesh fish (typically available in fillet form) with a sweet mild, taste and light flaky texture that can be broiled, grilled, or coated with bread crumbs and fried, according to experts.

It can be prepared simply, but also takes well to sauces. A 3.5-ounce serving of plain fish contains around 90 calories, 4 grams of fat (1.5 saturated), 45 grams of cholesterol and 50 milligrams of sodium. Since I found out from cooking a vast amount of Swai, it is a very light and delicate fish similar to the Orange Roughy and falls apart when handled too much during cooking. So I tend to take delicate fish and bake them in Almond Milk while using fresh herbs for seasoning.

Below is a great recipe for a few fillets, If you do the same, let me know what you think in a comment or email and describe your favorite way to prepare Swai. Happy Eating!

4 to 6 fillets of Fresh Caught Swai
6 to 10 Large Fresh Cinnamon Basil Leaves (Leave Whole)
2 Cups of Non-GMO Unsweetened Almond Milk
1 Lemon, (Zested and Juiced)
1 Tsp. Fresh Himalayan Salt
1 Tsp. Turmeric
1 Tbs. Extra Virgin White Truffle Olive Oil

In a glass baking dish coat the bottom with the Olive Oil. Layer the fish fillets evenly along dish and sprinkle with salt to taste, placing the Basil in between the layers. Add the fresh squeezed Lemon Juice coating evenly the top layer. Cover and place in refrigerator for about half an hour.

Pre-Heat Oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit, remove the fish from the refrigerator and pour in the Almond Milk. Sprinkle with Turmeric and Zest of the Lemon. Bake for approximately 20 min. or until fish fillets flake easily with a fork. Serve over Organic Non-Seasoned Brown Rice.

GINATAANG HIPON

ginataang hiponThe Philippines is a country in Southeast Asia with a tropical climate that grows a wide variety of vegetables and fruits, almost all of which find their way into the dishes of Filipino cuisine. Fruits and vegetables are prepared in a wide variety of ways depending on the dish and the region, but frying, boiling, steaming and pickling are favorite methods of preparation. There are also a few dishes that include the vegetables and fruits raw. Regardless of the cooking method used, Filipino cooks take great care to maximize the flavor and nutritional value of the food that is prepared.

 

Legal Sea Foods
Philippine cuisine consists of the food and preparation methods including eating customs found in the Philippines. The style of cooking and the food associated with it have evolved over several centuries from its Austronesian origins to a mixed cuisine with many Malay, Arab, Chinese, Spanish, American, and other Asian and Latin influences adapted to indigenous ingredients and the local palate.

GINATAANG HIPON is a traditional Filipino stew that contains seafood such as shrimp and fish. Seafood is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Regularly consuming omega-3 fats can help reduce inflammation, reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and improve diabetic blood sugar control.

1/3 cup green onions
2 cups coconut milk
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1/2 cup water
1Lb medium size whole shrimps (leave heads and shell intact)

GINATAANG HIPON PROCEDURES:

  1. In a skillet, heat olive oil and stir fry garlic, add onions and ginger simmer until onions are clear.
  2. Add the green onions, lemon grass and salt.  Stir fry lightly then add 1/4 cup coconut milk bring to boil.
  3. Add the remaining coconut milk, water, vinegar and fish sauce. Add dry spices and shrimp. Cook stirring over low heat until it thickens, for about 8-10 minutes. You may garnish with cilantro for added flavor.

Our Superfoods Organic Cherry Blueberry Chia Vinagrette will give you the best-dressed salad in town. Stay away from store-bought brands in favour of this homemade offering.  Balsamic vinegar is rich in polyphenols, a powerful antioxidant that helps boost  pepsin activity.

 

Pepsin is an enzyme that is secreted into the stomach to aid in the digestion process. This enzyme works to break down proteins that are  consumed and turn them into amino acids, which helps speed up your metabolism.  The grapes that are used to create balsamic vinegar contain quercetin, a  bioflavonoid that works as an antioxidant. When combined with vitamin C,  quercetin gives your immune system a boost in an effort to fight cancer and a  variety of other infectious diseases.

The Acai (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) berry is one of the most antioxidant rich superfoods available. True to the typical process, Bariani’s balsamic vinegar is made from Trebbiano grapes and aged in barrels of various woods.

Mediterranean Shrimp

Mediterranean Shrimp  Though almost entirely enclosed, the Mediterranean Shrimp is quite deep. There is little tidal variation. The climate is warm and dry. The water, also warm is highly saline. While it is poor in nutrients, it has a rich biodiversity. Home to the ancient cities of Egypt, Crete, Mycenae, Greece and Rome, the Mediterranean is the birthplace of European civilization.  The Sea is Europe’s border with Africa. Only 30 km of water separates Gibraltar from Africa, though at some points.

Cutting out the Sugar

The average american consumes up to an estimated half pound of sugar each day! Cutting out the Sugar should be of added importance especially when the diabetic epidemic has gotten out of control. Consuming the equivalent of 60 teaspoons of sugar per day is outrageously impacting our health.

The food guide pyramid and the World Health Organization recommends that people should limit added sugars to no less than 10% of the total consumed calories. That would be six teaspoons of sugar for a 1600 calorie diet. and a maximum of Ten teaspoons for a 2000 calorie diet.

 

 

The U.S. Dietary guidline for Americans recommends limiting added sugars and instead focus on consuming a variety of nutrient dense foods and beverages from the basic food groups. Consuming sugars from Organic fruites and vegetables for example can be intaked from eating the following top five fruits and vegetables:

#1 – Apple

At the top of the list are nature’s toothbrush – the apple. A whopping 35 grams of carbs for one large apple – or 25g for a medium apple. Thanks to fiber you can shave 3g’s off those numbers, but they are still quite high. To compare, when your child eats a large apple, the sugar load is the same as if they were eating 8.75 teaspoons of sugar.

#2 – Pomegranate

One medium pomegranate has a load of 26 grams.The surprising part is there’s only 1g of fiber for all those seeds. I find that hard to believe! That’s 6.5 teaspoons of sugar.

#3 – Banana

I guess it’s no surprise bananas are in the top five. Sumo wrestlers don’t bulk up with bananas for nothing, right? One large banana has 25 grams of carbs and 3g’s fiber. That’s 6.25 teaspoons of sugar.

#4 – Pear

Now they are four popular varieties in pears in the US, but they are all high in carbs. Although high in potassium, each pear has a load of 22 grams of carbs. The good news is it has 4 grams of fiber which is not bad. That’s 5.5 teaspoons sugar.

#5 – Blueberries

One cup of blueberries has 20 grams of carbs. I always thought blueberries contained more fiber than they do 3 grams. Learn something new every day. Oh, and that’s 5 teaspoons sugar. So now that you know which fruit has the most sugar per serving, I bet you’d like to know which are the better choices. Choose the one you feel is to your taste.

 Life Extension - Health And Medical Findings

Vegetables:

#1 Carrots

Most vegetables have a low-sugar content. However, there are a few varieties that are at the higher end of the GI. Carrots have a score of 70, considered high. If you consider that there is only 1 g carbohydrate in a large carrot and 1 g of sugar, the percentage is high. Yet, it is a good source of fiber and other nutrients. In consideration, if you ate five large carrots, you would still only be ingesting 5 g of sugar.

#2 Beets

A vegetable also high on the GI scale is beets. They score in at 63. For each cup of canned beets, you will ingest 19 g carbohydrates, of which, 16 g are sugar.

#3 Potatoes

Potatoes are not only high in sugar, but they also have a high glycemic index and can make blood sugars harder to control for diabetics. In non-diabetics, eating too many white potatoes increases the risk of insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome – a forerunner to heart disease and diabetes. A better alternative is the sweet potato which is more nutritious because of its higher carotenoid content. It also has a much lower glycemic index than the white potato. Make the switch and choose sweet potatoes instead.

#4 Corn

Corn is another vegetable with a high sugar content; but don’t pass on this sweet, crunchy vegetable entirely. It’s a good source of antioxidants and a source of a chemical called ferulic acid that may help to fight cancer. It’s also a good source of vitamin B1, folate, and vitamin C. Eat it in moderation and enjoy its many health benefits.

#5 Peas

They may be high in sugar, but they’re also an excellent source of vitamin K – a vitamin important for healthy bones. Plus, they’re a good source of vitamins C, B1, and folate. Peas have a higher protein content than most vegetables and are abundant in heart-healthy fiber. Despite their sugar content, what’s not to love about them?

 

According to a study by the USDA, people who eat a lot of sugar do not get as many nutrients as people who eat low sugar diets. This is because high sugar foods often replace nutrient rich foods. Below are 10 ways to help you cut down on your sugar intake.

1. Think before you drink:

Liquid calories add up fast. One 12 ounce can of soda contains about 10 teaspoons of sugar and one 20 ounce bottle contains about 16 teaspoons. Bottled ice teas and energy drinks often contain as much sugar as sodas.

2. Read Food Lables:

Reading food lables can help to identify added sugars. Some names for added sugars include sugar, brown sugar, raw sugar, corn sweetner, corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, sucrose, glucose and dextrose. Reading the lables is a good step towards cutting out the sugar.

3. Choose nutrient rich foods first:

Nutrient rich foods provide a high amount of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients for the calories they contain. These include brightly colored fresh fruits and vegetables. Lean meat, poultry, fish, eggs, beans and nuts. Whole fiber-rich grain foods and fat free and low fat milk, cheese and yogurts.

4. Shop the perimiter of the store:

You will most always find nutrient rich foods around the perimiter of a store. Believe it or not, marketing stradegies for profit bares all when it comes down to cutting out the sugar and to the bottom line and marketers will always think of profits before anyones health. So be wise and if it is in front of you labled buy me now, chances are it’s not good for you.

5. Make snacks count:

Nutricious snacks can help you manage your weight, hunger and energy. Choose foods from the food groups such as fruits, vegetables, low fat yougurt, and cheese, whole grain crackers, cereaals and nuts. But like with everything, eat moderately.

6. Pay attention to portions:

Choose small servings or share high calorie, high sugar deserts when you splurge. Try a child’s serving of ice cream, a miniature chocolate or a small mocha.

7. Eat mindfully:

When you indulge in a sweet treat, pay attention and savor the flavor of each and every bite. The first few bites are the most satisfying and when you are satisfied, put it away and not just into your body, put it away and save it for later urges. Cutting out the Sugar is of importance.

8. Drink water:

Water is naturally calorie free and sugar free. Sparkling water or seltzer water is a refreshing option. These can be flavored with lemon or lime or even orange wedges and fruit juice.

9. Eat fruits:

Naturally sweet, fruit is a satisfyingand nutricios alternative. Fresh fruit is high in water and fiber, boith of which help increase fullness, helping you eat less.

10. Eat less candy, cookies, cakes, and pies:

High in sugar and fat, these foods contain lots of calories with very little nutrition. Cahnces are that after you eat these things, your cravings will be back before you know it for more of it. Once again marketing is in control when it comes to poor nutrition so don’t spend your hard earned dollars to simply eat it away and gain no nutritional values.

Pav Bhaji

Pav Bhaji  – The origin of this dish is traced to textile mill workers in Mumbai in the 1850s.  The mill workers used to have lunch breaks too short for a full meal, and a light lunch was preferred to a heavy one, as the employees had to return to strenuous physical labor after lunch. A vendor created this dish using items or parts of other dishes available on the menu.

 

 

Roti or rice was replaced with pav and the curries that usually go with Indian bread or rice were amalgamated into just one spicy concoction, the ‘bhaji’. Initially, it remained the food of the mill-workers. With time the dish found its way into restaurants and spread over Central Mumbai and other parts of the city via the Udipi restaurants.

Testosterone Therapy

Smart Reality or Consequence?
If considering testosterone therapy to help you feel younger and more vigorous as you age, you must get familiar with the risks before you make your decision.  The possibilities of testosterone therapy are enticing, as the desire to increase your muscle mass, sharpen your memory and concentration, boost your libido, and improve your energy level is at every man’s mental forefront.

 

As you get older, testosterone therapy may sound like the ultimate anti-aging formula. Yet the health benefits of testosterone therapy for age-related decline in testosterone aren’t as clear as they may seem. Find out what’s known facts and not known about testosterone therapy for normal aging.

What is testosterone?
Testosterone is a hormone produced primarily in the testicles. Testosterone helps maintain men’s bone density, fat distribution, muscle strength and mass, red blood cell production, sex drive, and sperm production. Hypogonadism is a disease in which the body is unable to produce normal amounts of testosterone due to a problem with the testicles or with the pituitary gland that controls the testicles. Testosterone replacement therapy can improve the signs and symptoms of low testosterone in these men. Doctors may prescribe testosterone as injections, pellets, patches or gels.

What happens to testosterone levels with age?
Testosterone peaks during adolescence and early adulthood. As you get older, your testosterone level gradually declines and is typical to about 1 percent a year after age 30. It is important to determine in older men if a low testosterone level is simply due to the decline of normal aging or if it is due to a disease (hypogonadism).

Does a naturally declining testosterone level cause the signs and symptoms of aging?
Not necessarily. Men can experience many signs and symptoms as they age, and some may occur as a result of lower testosterone levels and can include changes in sexual function, this may include reduced sexual desire, fewer spontaneous erections such as during sleep and infertility. Changes in sleep patterns and sometimes low testosterone cause insomnia and/or other sleep disturbances. Physical changes such as various physical changes are possible, including increased body fat, reduced muscle bulk and strength, and decreased bone density. Swollen or tender breasts (gynecomastia) and hair loss are possible. You may experience hot flashes and have less energy than you used to.

Emotional changes are common with low testosterone and may contribute to a decrease in motivation or self-confidence. You may feel sad or depressed, or have trouble concentrating or remembering things.  It’s important to note that some of these signs and symptoms are a normal part of aging. Others can be caused by various underlying factors, including medication side effects, thyroid problems, depression and excessive alcohol use. A blood test is the only way to diagnose a low testosterone level.

Can testosterone therapy promote youth and vitality?
Testosterone therapy can help reverse the effects of hypogonadism, but it’s unclear whether testosterone therapy would have any benefit for older men who are otherwise healthy.  Although some men believe that taking testosterone medications may help them feel younger and more vigorous as they age, few rigorous studies have examined testosterone therapy in men who have healthy testosterone levels and some small studies have revealed mixed results. For example, in one study healthy men who took testosterone medications increased muscle mass but didn’t gain strength.

What are the risks of testosterone therapy for normal aging?
Testosterone therapy has various risks. For example, testosterone therapy can contribute to sleep apnea a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. It can cause your body to make too many red blood cells (polycythemia), which can increase the risk of heart disease. It can also cause acne or other skin reactions as well as stimulate noncancerous growth of the prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia) and possibly stimulate growth of existing prostate cancer and is also known to enlarge breasts and limit sperm production or cause testicle shrinkage.
