Better sex is realized with a lean weight

Better sex is realized with a lean weight: What is the role weight in having quality sex?

Better sex is realized with a lean weight

Better sex is realized with a lean weight. It is also important to note that besides sexual performance, being overweight is very unhealthy for your health.

Are you having problems with your sexual life? Is your partner showing signs of dissatisfaction each time you have sex? I could ask several questions but just those two are enough for the purpose of introducing this topic of discussion. We are focusing on whether better sex is realized with a lean weight. Sex is a very key component in any relationship and whenever it is feels threaten then such relationships involved will begin feeling some form of discomforts. Therefore before we get to that point, we want to engage the experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center to help us understand the significance of being overweight or obese in individual’s sexual life. According to doctor Dalal Akoury (MD) and also the founder of this health facility, being overweight will for sure affect your libido. However these effects could be corrected with practicing some small changes that can jump-start your sex drive and save your relationship from further disintegration. Nonetheless before we explore that aspect of discussion, let us take a moment and look at the atmosphere we live in. honestly speaking there is a lot of sex information around us including the street, learning institutions, media both electronic and print, in social place and even in the churches. In one of the media it was reported that looking, feeling, acting, and just being sexy is the order of the day where the atmosphere is all about sleep your way to sexier sizzle, walking away impotence and going Italian for a better love life. All these are pointers to the fact that sex is basic and if weight is an issue then it must be addressed promptly.

Besides that it is true that cultural messages also continue to tell us that no one bigger than a size 6 should be singing the siren song of sexuality. And just like it is impossible to have a solution of oil and water so being overweight and sexy just doesn’t have a relationship. For those already struggling with weight and image issues, that powerful message can easily throw a wet blanket on even the most active libido says doctor Dalal Akoury.

Unfortunately, people are internalizing society’s definition of what it takes to be involved in sex, and more so in the context of the body shape there are clearly societal biases out there that are influencing us on an individual level and not in a good way. But it turns out that cultural messages aren’t the whole story. New research suggests certain physical conditions that go along with obesity also affect sex drive, further dampening the desires of those who are overweight. Amidst all those challenges there is some element of hope that one can still redeem the situation to suit their needs  by making the following changes to your body (and how you think about your body) to enhance your libido:

  • Lose as little weight as 10 pounds will go a long way in helping you to stimulate sex hormones
  • Eat more nutritious foods, which control cholesterol and blood sugar levels
  • When working  workout purpose the exercise to have the blood flowing to the pelvic area
  • Encourage reading relevant sexy novel and other materials
  • Be comfortable with your body at any size
  • And most importantly believe in your sensuality

After doing all these, the question that follows would be “how do you start?” and from the expert opinion at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center, you may want to start by identifying the physical and psychological obstacles that could be standing in your way to a fulfilling sex life.

Better sex is realized with a lean weight: How too much weight hampers sex drive

According to a recent study conducted by various professionals, it was established that up to 30% of obese people seeking help controlling their weight indicate problems with sex drive, desire, performance, or all three. Often, the latest research shows, these problems can be traced to physical conditions that co-exist with obesity.

Medical conditions such as high cholesterol and insulin resistance [an early indicator of type 2 diabetes] do have the ability to impact sexual performance, which in turn impacts desire, particularly in men. And because both conditions can cause the tiny arteries in the penis to shut down, particularly when vessel-clogging fatty deposits begin to form impotence or erectile dysfunction is often the result.

A man who has problems having an erection is going to lose his desire for sex in not too long a time.

Men aren’t alone with sex problems caused by poor blood flow. Research shows overweight women’s sex drive and desire are affected by the same problem.

We are beginning to see that the width of the blood vessels leading to the clitoris [the area of the vagina most closely related to sexual response] in women are affected by the same kind of blockages that impact blood flow to the penis. When this happens, a woman’s body is far less responsive, and a drop in desire is not far behind.

Complicating matters further for both sexes: The more body fat you have, the higher your levels of a natural chemical known as SHBG (short for sex hormone binding globulin). It’s aptly named because it binds to the sex hormone testosterone. Doctors theorize that the more testosterone that is bound to SHBG, the less there is available to stimulate desire.

Better sex is realized with a lean weight: Think sexy and you’ll be sexy

Finally what goes on in your mind can be the reason why you have inabilities to deliver sexually like for instance, for some people, getting physical problems under control is all they need to trigger up the flames of desire. Yet for others, it’s still not quite enough. Experts believe that one of the biggest obstacles to enjoying sex at any size is poor body image. They caution that the inability to accept your weight and your size can leave you sleeping single in a double bed. There is this idea out there that if you accept your body and your weight that it’s somehow going to take away your motivation to change the way you look in a way, society almost tells us that you have to hate your body before you can improve it.

Understanding how addiction is hijacking the brain

Understanding how addiction is hijacking the brain: Overcoming addiction and staying drug free

Understanding how addiction is hijacking the brain

Understanding how addiction is hijacking the brain is very necessary to avoid being in serious health complications

Before any contaminant is associated with the brain, the brain is very free and effective in its functions as one of the most sensitive organs of the body. The functions of the brain are very precise and any infringement to them impacts negatively to the whole body and that is why we must guard it by all means. Take for instance the problem of drug addiction that involves cravings for something intensely, loss of control over its use, and continuing involvement with it despite adverse consequences. When one is addicted to any substance, this process normally causes serious changes in the brain by subverting the way it registers pleasure and then it graduates by corrupting other normal drives like learning and motivation. This is what we must not allow by all means and that is why we want to engage the experts’ opinion in understanding how addiction is hijacking the brain functions. Doctor Dalal Akoury MD and founder of AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center are going to be very helpful in shading some light about all these concerns. But before we get into that let us first start by introducing what really causes addiction.

Understanding how addiction is hijacking the brain: What causes addiction?

It will interest you to note that this word addiction actually originated from a Latin word meaning enslaved by or bound to. You may not understand what it feels like to be addicted to a substance until you are addicted to it or if you are caring for someone who is struggling with the problem of addiction. Doctor Akoury says that addiction impacts powerfully and influences the brain functions in three distinctive ways that is to say; by craving for the object of addiction, loss of control over its use, and continuing involvement with it despite dangerous and harmful consequences.

For a very long time now, experts believed that only alcohol and powerful drugs could cause addiction. Nonetheless new neuroimaging technologies and more recent research have shown that certain pleasurable activities besides the known drugs both hard and soft, such as gambling, shopping, and sex, can also co-opt the brain. So whenever you are talking about addiction, you must not narrow your augment on drugs alone. From our previous article we mention something about a standard U.S. diagnostic manual (the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition or DSM-IV) that describes multiple addictions with each tied to a specific substance or activity, experts across the globe are building consensus that these may represent multiple expressions of a common underlying brain process. To that effect it would be very important that we all seek for medical attention immediately we suspect something in our health. You can actually schedule for an appointment with doctor Dalal Akoury today for a more in-depth analysis of your situation with a view of finding lasting solutions that will leave health and comfortable.

Understanding how addiction is hijacking the brain: The Future of Integrative Addiction

The effects of addiction to the brain is very sensitive and unless we pool together to find lasting solutions, we may be time bad. This rush against time is what doctor Dalal Akoury is trying to deal with from all avenues. Like we had indicated above that doctor Akoury founded a health facility to primarily help the direct victims of drug addiction. This facility is doing a phenomenon job to the community and even to the professionals caring for the addicts. Like for instance AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center, which is one of the leading pioneers in natural and holistic addiction treatment, will be conducting the first ever Educational, Functional and Integrative Addiction conference for doctors, counselors, nurses and addiction therapists. The conference is actually scheduled for August 23-25 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. This new frontier in Addiction Medicine will be conducted by the most influential group of leading visionaries specializing in the latest advances in natural and integrative addiction medicine, under the theme “The Future of Integrative Addiction”.

It is important to appreciate that this Integrative Addiction Conference 2015 mission is to provide prevention education, awareness, options and support to patients and physicians dealing with addiction. It is also tailored at empowering physicians to be involved in determining their personal “best answer for addiction” and promoting physician/patient awareness of a natural, yet profoundly effective, addiction treatment options that result in you “thriving while surviving” during treatment and recovery. Integrative Addiction Conference 2015 will cover topics such as addiction as a holistic body ecosystem derangement, the interaction between stress, survivorship, pain and addiction, the role of hormonal imbalance in the disease of addiction, the genetic and epigenetic influences on the disease of addiction, psycho neuroendocrine immune restoration essential to reverse addiction as well as new and future therapies in the horizon for addiction treatment including stem therapy for psycho neuroendocrine immune restoration. This is one educative occasion you cannot afford to miss and for more information about the conference you can login to www.integrativeaddiction2015.com or email sharon@integrativeaddiction2015.com. You can also call the event organizer directly Sharon Phillips on telephone number 954 540 1896 and you will be attended to with dignity.

In the meantime let me take this earliest opportunity to officially invite you to this conference as the lead speaker of the three day conference. And just to pre-empt of what to expect as the keynote speaker, Dalal Akoury, MD will be discussing The Hijacked Mind: How does it get there and how does is leave? Sean Devlin, DO, HMD, will be focusing on “How to Recognize Addiction: Emergency care room and Addiction. Preliminary diagnostics and coping with life-saving measures when patients have overdose on substances of abuse/alcohol and drugs. I can tell you for sure that this will be the turning point for all of us in the addiction industry so that we can even deliver better to our client. We must defeat this common enemy called addiction. So let me see you at the conference.

Mechanisms of preventing alcohol withdrawal

Mechanisms of preventing alcohol withdrawal: The levels of alcohol withdrawal

Mechanisms of preventing alcohol withdrawal

Mechanisms of preventing alcohol withdrawal is not the end of alcohol addiction but just a strategy of containing the vice which can make you a prisoner

Before we can talk about alcohol withdrawal, one must have been into drinking for a long period of time. This is so because alcohol withdrawal is pegged on the ex poser of alcohol to the brain over a given duration that is considered long enough to cause such damages. It is important to note that alcohol withdrawal is different from withdrawal from most other drugs. This is so because alcohol withdrawal can be fatal and deadly. Ideally studies have indicated that the only drugs capable of reacting like alcohol to the point of causing death from withdrawal are the benzodiazepines. It is not like other substances heroin withdrawal for example will rarely be that fatal let alone ever killing anyone. But untreated major alcohol withdrawal can kill one person in three. The good news is that these fatalities are almost completely preventable if people are properly tapered off from their alcohol use. Therefore as it is always said that prevention is better that cure, experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under the able leadership of Doctor Dalal Akoury’s care are doing all that it takes to create awareness about all the mechanisms of preventing alcohol withdrawal so that we may have a healthy society we can be happy to call home. On that note, doctor Akoury is going to help us come to speed with the understanding of the levels of alcohol withdrawal as follows.

Mechanisms of preventing alcohol withdrawal: The levels of alcohol withdrawal

Professionally across the board globally, doctors generally recognizes the three levels of alcohol withdrawal in the following order:

Level one minor withdrawal – Shaky hands sweating, mild anxiety, insomnia, nausea and headache. These symptoms may appear within 6 to 12 hours after quitting drinking.

Level two Mid-level Withdrawal – Minor withdrawal symptoms at a more intense level plus visual, auditory or tactile hallucinations. The patient generally is aware that the hallucinations are not real, possible seizures, racing pulse and irregular heartbeat. These symptoms may appear within 12 to 48 hours after quitting drinking.

Level three Major Withdrawal – Delirium, alcohol-induced hallucinations, patient generally cannot distinguish hallucination from reality, profuse sweating, seizures and severe blood pressure spikes, sever tremor, racing and irregular heartbeat, fever and possible death. These symptoms may appear within 48 to 72 hours after quitting drinking and peak in five days. Remember that mild or mid-level alcohol withdrawal are rarely if ever fatal unless you have a very weak heart. Major withdrawal is the most dangerous one.

Popular slang in the United States refers to the shakiness which comes with mild alcohol withdrawal as “D.T.s”. This is a rather confusing use of terminology since properly speaking “D.T.s” refers to delirium tremens which is associated with major withdrawal. Real delirium tremens is life-threatening and can kill one in every three untreated patients. The shakiness associated with minor withdrawal is not life-threatening either. Now that you know of the three levels of alcohol withdrawal and their intensity of damage they can cause your life and that of your loved ones, it would be very important to carry out a self-evaluation about yourself so that you can take percussions in good time. You may want to schedule for an appointment with doctor Akoury for her professional touch about your situation and you will not regret it all the days of your life.

Mechanisms of preventing alcohol withdrawal: The Future of Integrative Addiction

As we progress in this discussion it is equally important to appreciate the effort doctor Akoury and her health facility (AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center) are doing in ensuring that everyone with any addiction problem is well attended to. To this effect AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center, one of the leading pioneers in natural and holistic addiction treatment, will be conducting the first ever Educational, Functional and Integrative Addiction conference targeting professionals in addiction including doctors, counselors, nurses and addiction therapists. This is a must attend conference for all professionals and it is schedule for August 23-25 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Remember that this new frontier in Addiction Medicine will be conducted by the most influential group of leading visionaries specializing in the latest advances in natural and integrative addiction medicine, under the theme “The Future of Integrative Addiction”. We want to take this earliest opportunity to welcome you to this conference so that we can succeed in forming a strong team that will defeat all manner of addictions even before they come.

Understanding the harmful effects of marijuana use

Understanding the harmful effects of marijuana use: The physical health of marijuana

Understanding the harmful effects of marijuana use

it is very important that we all have the proper understanding the harmful effects of marijuana use so that we can be able to take the right steps in seeking for treatment in good time.

If you understand the delicate nature of health when it is infringed with substances, you wouldn’t dare to fellowship with any drug of abuse. I appreciate that these substances can be very addictive and so you may not have control over them, but that does not free you from being a victim of all the sufferings from the effects of using the drugs. Drugs like marijuana are very harmful and addictive users of such drugs are at risk of contracting various health complications which will be discussing in this article as we progress into the discussion. But in the meantime, we need to have proper understanding of the harmful effects of marijuana use to human health and to the society in general. While speaking with expert at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under the able leadership of doctor Dalal Akoury, we are able to make certain confirmations about the effects of this drug as follows. Doctor Akoury reports that the most immediate effect of taking marijuana will include rapid heartbeat, disorientation and lack of physical coordination often followed by depression or sleepiness. Doctor Akoury further says that the problem does not really end there with some users often suffering from panic attacks or anxiety. The scientific findings is not making the situation bearable with the revelation that the active ingredient in cannabis THC can actually remain in the body for weeks or even longer.

Understanding the harmful effects of marijuana use: Tobacco and marijuana smoke

Marijuana smoke can be very cancerous because it contains 50% to 70% more cancer-causing substances in relation to tobacco smoke. The experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center while carrying out a study about the same established that a single cannabis joint could cause as much damage to the lungs as up to five regular cigarettes smoked one after another. Long-time joint smokers often suffer from bronchitis, an inflammation of the respiratory tract. In fact this drug can have far reaching effects on an individual’s physical health. This is a cording to some recent studies which associated many years of marijuana use to severe brain abnormalities. These facts are actually backed by the earlier research findings on the long-term effects of marijuana which indicate the changes in the brain similar to those caused by long-term abuse of other major drugs. And besides that a number of studies have shown a connection between continued marijuana use and psychosis.

The damages caused by marijuana have far reaching effects in our daily livelihood. Like for instance, this drug is capable of making alterations to the structure of sperm cells causing serious deformity in the cells. It is important to note that the quantity used is insignificant since even the very small amounts of marijuana can also cause temporary sterility in me. And besides that marijuana use can also upset a woman’s menstrual cycle. Studies show that the mental functions of people who have smoked a lot of marijuana tend to be reduced. The THC in cannabis disrupts nerve cells in the brain affecting memory.

Cannabis is one of the few drugs which cause abnormal cell division which leads to severe hereditary defects. A pregnant woman who regularly smokes marijuana or hashish may give birth prematurely to an undersized, underweight baby. Over the last ten years, many children of marijuana users have been born with reduced initiative and lessened abilities to concentrate and pursue life goals. Studies also suggest that prenatal (before birth) use of the drug may result in birth defects, mental abnormalities and increased risk of leukemia in children.

Understanding the harmful effects of marijuana use: Short-term effects

In the process of understanding the harmful effects of marijuana use in your life, you will most likely to be faced with the following short-term effects:

  • Increased heartbeat (and risk of heart attack)
  • Poor coordination of movement
  • Panic
  • Anxiety
  • Lowered reaction time
  • Sensory distortion
  • After an initial “up,” the user feels sleepy or depressed

Understanding the harmful effects of marijuana use: Long-term effects of marijuana

Likewise there will be those effects which will prolong to causing more health deterioration in several ways which may include the following:

  • Rapid destruction of lung fibers and lesions (injuries) to the brain could be permanent
  • Personality and mood changes
  • Reduced sexual capacity
  • Reduced resistance to common illnesses (colds, bronchitis, etc.)
  • Growth disorders
  • Increase of abnormally structured cells in the body
  • Reduction of male sex hormones
  • Apathy, drowsiness, lack of motivation
  • Inability to understand things clearly
  • Suppression of the immune system
  • Study difficulties: reduced ability to learn and retain information
Understanding the harmful effects of marijuana use: Seeking for professionalism in finding lasting solutions

When it comes to drug addiction problem, the best you can do to better your health is to find lasting solutions to this problem. There are very many people providing treatment for all manner of addiction currently and so when making the choice, you must ensure that you do not make mistakes from the beginning. That is why doctor Dalal Akoury in her contribution to helping in the fight against this problem of addiction made an informed decision to create a medical center whose main objective is to transform each individual’s life through increasing awareness about health and wellness and by empowering individuals to find their own inner healing power. It will also interest you to note that Dr. Akoury’s practice focuses primarily on personalized medicine through healthy lifestyle choices that deal with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of patching up symptoms. Therefore if you or anyone you know is struggling with marijuana addiction or any other kind of addiction for that matter, then this is the place to begin from in your search for lasting solution to your addiction problem by scheduling for an appointment with doctor Akoury today for the commencement of your recovery journey today.

The contributions of alcohol addiction to malnutrition

The contributions of alcohol addiction to malnutrition: Primary and secondary malnutrition

The contributions of alcohol addiction to malnutrition

The contributions of alcohol addiction to malnutrition is realistically here with us, the sooner we approach it soberly the better for everyone.

Malnutrition is an avoidable problem but some of our habits make it very difficult to do so. It is interesting to note that no one would want to be put in the category of malnourished people yet our actions does not really conform with the things that will prevent us from being malnourished. From the previous article, we have just established that alcoholic beverages are only rich in water and ethanol with very negligible patches of come nutrients. I do not know what you do with your life but one thing I do know is that if you are misusing alcohol consistently, then you need to stay on the link and follow keenly on the contributions of alcohol addiction to malnutrition. Experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center will be sharing with us on some of the things we need to know to be safe from both the problems of alcohol addiction as well as being malnourished out of our thirst for alcohol.

In general doctor Akoury the MD and founder of AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center states that from the observation made in various scientific studies, there are clear evidence that many alcoholics do not consume a balanced diet; moreover, as had been mentioned earlier, excessive alcohol consumption may interfere with these alcoholics’ ability to absorb and use the nutrients they do consume productively. Accordingly, many alcoholics suffer from various degrees of both primary and secondary malnutrition. Primary malnutrition occurs when alcohol replaces other nutrients in the diet, resulting in overall reduced nutrient intake. Secondary malnutrition occurs when the drinker consumes adequate nutrients but alcohol interferes with the absorption of those nutrients from the intestine so they are not available to the body.

The most severe malnutrition, which is accompanied by a significant reduction in muscle mass, generally is found in those alcoholics who are hospitalized for medical complications of alcoholism (e.g., alcohol–related liver disease or other organ damage). If these patients continue to drink, they will lose additional weight; conversely, if they abstain from drinking, they will gain weight. This pattern applies to patients with and without liver disease.

The contributions of alcohol addiction to malnutrition: Alcohol’s effects on digestion and absorption of essential nutrients

Alcohol consumption, particularly at heavy drinking levels, not only influences the drinker’s diet but also affects the metabolism of those nutrients that are consumed. Thus, even if the drinker ingests sufficient proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals, deficiencies may develop if those nutrients are not adequately absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract into the blood, are not broken down properly or are not used effectively by the body’s cells. Two classes of nutrients for which such problems occur are proteins and vitamins.

The contributions of alcohol addiction to malnutrition: Amino acids and proteins

Proteins are essential components of all cells. They help maintain the cell’s structure, transport certain substances in and out of cells, and act as enzymes that mediate almost all biochemical reactions occurring in the cells. Proteins are composed of approximately 20 different building blocks called amino acids. Many of these amino acids can be produced by the body itself from various precursors or are recycled when proteins that are damaged or are no longer needed are broken down or degraded. Other amino acids however, must be acquired through diet. Alcohol can interfere with the uptake of these essential amino acids.

Patients with chronic liver failure also exhibit a number of defects in protein metabolism. These include decreased production of proteins in the liver that are secreted into the blood decreased urea synthesis, and decreased metabolism of a group of amino acids called aromatic amino acids. These defects have important clinical consequences:

The contributions of alcohol addiction to malnutrition: Vitamins

Vitamins are molecules that are present in small amounts in various foods and are essential for normal metabolism; insufficient vitamin levels in the body can lead to serious diseases. Alcoholics, even without liver disease, tend to have clinical or laboratory signs of deficiencies in certain vitamins, particularly vitamins B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B6 (pyridoxine), and C (ascorbic acid), as well as folic acid. The severity of these deficiencies correlates with the amount of alcohol consumed and with the corresponding decrease in vitamin intake.

The contributions of alcohol addiction to malnutrition: A person’s nutrition affects liver function

Malnutrition, regardless of its causes, can lead to liver damage and impaired liver function. For example, children in underdeveloped countries whose diets do not contain enough protein can develop a disease called kwashiorkor. One symptom of this disorder is the accumulation of fat in the liver, a condition known as fatty liver. Studies performed during and after World War II indicated that severe malnutrition also could lead to liver injury in adults. However, in these cases other factors, including exposure to certain toxins or parasites that are prevalent in war–ravaged or underdeveloped countries, may have exacerbated the relationship between liver injury and poor nutrition.

Because malnutrition also is common in alcoholics, clinicians initially thought that malnutrition, rather than alcohol itself, was responsible for alcohol–induced liver injury. Over the past 40 years, however, a more balanced view has evolved. Studies in humans, primates, and rodents have established that alcohol can cause liver damage even in well–nourished people.

It is becoming clear that nutritional effects and the toxic effects of alcohol often are intertwined at the biochemical level. For example, alcohol induces the MEOS to break down alcohol. Similarly, alcohol promotes the breakdown of nutrients such as vitamin A, of which alcoholics may already consume too little with their diet. All these addiction related complications can be corrected with the right professional’s involvement. You may want to consult with the experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under the able leadership of doctor Dalal Akoury. Talking to doctor Akoury should be your starting point and you can do this by scheduling for an appointment with her to day for the commencement of your much desired breakthrough and comfort in life.
