How to Prevent Concussion-Induced Brain Damage in Athletes

A concussion is caused when the brain experiences trauma from an impact or a sudden, forceful movement, resulting in neurological symptoms. Between 1.6 and 3.8 million sports and recreation related concussions occur each and every year in America – the majority of which happen to males under the age of 19. This is scary because concussions can damage the brain and have serious short and long-term consequences, especially if they remain undiagnosed and the athlete returns to the game too soon.

Americas Only Olympic Weightlifter Eats Vegan: Why You Should Too!

There’s a common myth that you need to eat meat in order to build strength and stamina but 30-year-old, vegan Olympic weightlifter Kendrick Farris proves that wrong!

Caring for Aging Parents

Recently, I was very touched and moved by a sincere letter written by Dr. Nick Delgado about how he turned his Dad around and made the final days of his Dad’s life a pleasure for himself, for his Dad and for the rest of the family. This was particularly poignant to me as I have had two similar voyages with my Dad, victim of congestive heart failure at 88, and with my late husband a fitness icon cut down too young by a stroke. Dr. Delgado and many colleagues have studied and have found solutions for many many aging adults to minimize or relieve entirely the debilitating effects of aging, weakness, memory loss, Alzheimer’s, lack of sexual energy, inability to perform and others. More importantly for those of us who fill the role as primary caregiver is to maintain cognitive function.

How to Eliminate Man Boobs Naturally

Man boobs, which are referred to medically as gynecomastia, are becoming increasingly common in America. In fact, the swelling of breast tissue is estimated to effect approximately 40% of all men at some point in their lives, causing physical tenderness, and unnecessary anxiety and social discomfort. Plastic surgeons are cashing in on the embarrassment and shame associated with man boobs and many charge over $10,000 to surgically remove the excess breast tissue. Surgery should not be your first line of defense however; not only is it expensive, invasive and painful, it also fails to address the root cause. Besides, why waste the money when most men can both prevent and reverse gynecomastia by balancing estrogen levels through simple diet and lifestyle tweaks.

(Video) The Acne, Caffeine, and Estrogen Connection

Acne is not just a problem for teenagers; it can develop and persist well into adulthood and a whopping 80% of us will struggle with it at some point in our lives. There is a common misbelief that acne is a topical issue, and hundreds of millions of dollars are thrown down the drain every year on topical acne products that simply don’t work. In fact, many topical acne products actually make acne worse because they increase inflammation, irritation, and skin dryness, which causes an increase in the production of pore-clogging sebum. Acne is a lifestyle disease, caused by an unhealthy, inflammatory diet, toxic overload, lack of sleep, and chronic stress. Caffeine consumption is another major contributor to acne because of its stress inducing and hormone altering effects on your body. So if you want to heal acne for good, ditch that cup a joe and listen-up.

(Video) Doctor Delgado’s Secret Tool for Athletic Supremacy

Electrical stimulation devices are muscle stimulators that use electrical impulses in order to trigger muscular contractions. They are passive workout devices since you don’t purposefully contract the muscles like you would while doing weight bearing or weight lifting exercises. They are touted for their ability to build-up strength and muscle, but the majority of the population dismisses them due to their passive nature. Doctor Nick Delgado used to think that way himself, and was formally a strong believer that you had to go to the gym in order to build strength. However, his opinion changed when he tried the TeslaMax, and now he not only uses it regularly, he also advocates it for anyone who wants to build strength, heal and prevent injuries, and/or optimize their athletic performance.

(Video) How to Control Estrogen, Reduce Disease Risk, and Optimize Your Health

Estrogen is a mitogenic hormone which means it stimulates the replication and reproduction of cells. This is a good thing in pregnant women but for the rest of us, wildly replicating cells is dangerous to our health, and it sets the stage for the growth of cancerous tumors. Many people think of estrogen as a female hormone, and although it does play a more dominant role in women’s bodies, men are affected by it too. An estrogen deficiency can cause muscle and bone loss, weight gain, increased heart disease risk, lowered libido and fertility issues in both males and females alike. Too much estrogen (a condition referred to as estrogen dominance) is much more common than too little however, and it can cause a range of undesirable symptoms including hair loss, weight gain, infertility, loss of libido, anxiety, fatigue, PMS, fibroids, autoimmune disorder and certain types of cancer.
