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.

(Video) Benefits of Testosterone and How to Increase It Naturally

Testosterone is a powerful steroid hormone. It is often referred to as the male sex hormone because it’s responsible for male sex characteristics and men produce ten times more of it than women. The maintenance of adequate testosterone levels in men is essential for mental, physical, emotional and sexual wellbeing. Unfortunately, after age of 30, testosterone begins to decline and most men will experience a 1% drop in testosterone levels per year, after their twenties. This may not sound like a lot, but by age 40 it amounts to a 10 % loss which is enough to produce noticeable symptoms and by age 60 levels will typically be 30% lower than age 30. Fortunately, testosterone levels can easily be increased and the negative symptoms associated with low testosterone reversed. Before explaining how to naturally and effectively boost testosterone levels, lets first examine what the benefits are of doing so.

More than 65% of Americans are overweight or obese, and almost half of all Americans have at least one major risk factor for America’s #1 killer – heart disease.
