Texas Fertility Center March Dadness Campaign Focuses on the Odds of Beating Male Infertility


Austin, TX (PRWEB) March 19, 2013

Anyone experiencing the frustration of infertility knows about jumping through hoops to get pregnant. This month, as the NCAA Competition known as March Madness tips off, Texas Fertility Center (TFC) raises awareness for male factor infertility with its annual March Dadness campaign.

Male factors account for half of all cases of infertility, explained Dr. Kaylen Silverberg, a reproductive endocrinologist with Texas Fertility Center. Many couples mistakenly believe that infertility is a womans issue, so they may not seek treatment for male factors. The good news is that male infertility is almost always treatable.

Texas Fertility Center assists couples in their quest to overcome infertility and get pregnant. In fact, the fertility center has helped bring over 12,000 babies into the world. The TFC fertility specialists also devote time to research, advocacy and public awareness, such as the March Dadness male infertility campaign.

Fertility specialists point to common causes of male factor infertility: certain medical conditions; hormonal issues; ejaculation and erection problems; genetic disorders; low sperm count; varicocele; and injury and obstruction in the reproductive tract.

Some causes of male infertility, if left untreated, can progress to also cause impotence or other disorders of male sexual function.

When to Seek Treatment for Male Infertility

If you have a history of certain genetic disease, such as cystic fibrosis, or previous hernia repair, testicular surgery, vasectomy or cancer treatment, dont wait to seek treatment for male infertility. As a general rule, 12 months of unprotected sex (or six months if the female partner is over 35) should result in a pregnancy.

Fertility evaluation for men includes a conversation about family and medical history, and a semen analysis to measure the total number of sperm, sperm motility and sperm shape.

The results give us information about sperm count and quality so that we know how to proceed with targeted fertility treatment, Dr. Silverberg says.

Most causes of male infertility can be treated with fertility drugs, intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in-vitro fertilization (IVF). TFC refers surgical cases to Austins finest urologists.

Were huge basketball fans here at Texas Fertility Center, and we know that fellow sports fans know all of the important statistics about their favorite teams, Dr. Silverberg says. This March, we hope to add to the conversation by sharing facts and stats about male infertility so couples can increase their odds of getting pregnant.

Putney Beauty Salon Reveals Top Exfoliation Treatments for Spring


London (PRWEB UK) 19 March 2015

Cosmedics Putney Beauty Salon offers the very latest treatments for skin improvement at its treatment centre based just off the High Street.

At this time of year as the seasons start to change, their team recommend professional exfoliation treatments to brighten up tired and lacklustre winter skin, ready for the spring and early summer.

The team offer two options for exfoliation. Firstly, the very latest microdermabrasion using their sophisticated CACI non-surgical equipment. http://www.putneybeautysalon.co.uk/face/microdermabrasion/.

In addition, their range of Murad facials includes a series of effective chemical peels, including the AHA Rapid Exfoliator and the AHA Rapid Exfoliator Maximum Strength. http://www.putneybeautysalon.co.uk/face/murad-facials/

Marcelle Schulz, Practice Manager for the Beauty Salon and Cosmedics Skin Clinics, explains:

Skin tends to become quite dull and dry over winter, but exfoliation is a great way to perk it up.

Exfoliation is a simple principle, which involves sloughing off the outer layers of dead skin cells to reveal fresher, new skin beneath. This gives and instant glow and radiance but also has longer term benefits of promoting cell renewal deep within the skin.

Exfoliation can be done at home, but professional treatments go deeper for a more intensive result. As well as boosting the complexion and appearance of the skin, fine lines and pigmentation can be reduced. Other potential benefits include improvements to acne or acne scarring.

Everybodys skin has a unique set of requirements, so treatment programmes are chosen with care and customised where appropriate to suit each individual clients needs. All treatments at the salon are carried out by fully qualified and highly experienced beauty therapists.

Where a more specific condition can be identified, then Cosmedics Putney Beauty Salon offers a host of additional options as an alternative or complement to exfoliation treatments. The latest addition to the clinic is the new EDS or Electro Derma Stamp, an automated micro-needling and mesotherapy device which works to induce collagen production deep into the layers of your skin to boost its texture, complexion and health. The dermis delivery mesotherapy also allows products such as hyaluronic acid and vitamins deeper into the skin where they can more efficiently boost the skin tone and texture. The design of EDS means that it is ideal for targeting specific trouble areas such as lines or areas of acne scarring or pigmentation.

Marcelle concludes:

I have worked in beauty for over a decade and we are particularly privileged at this salon to have such a wide range of leading technologies. It means that we can select the best option for each and every client to get them a result theyll be delighted with.

Cosmedics Putney Beauty Salon offers a comprehensive range of the very latest professional treatments for the face and body as well as hair removal including laser hair removal and electrolysis.

Since opening in 2012, the Putney beauty salon has regularly introduced new treatment options for its clients. They offer treatments for the face and body too, with top brand facials and advanced skincare technology such as CACI at their exclusive salon at 4 Disraeli Road, Putney, London.

The beauty and hair removal business is part of Cosmedics Skin Clinics, which was established in 2003 and remains a doctor owned and managed company offering a full range of cosmetic treatments, including popular cosmetic and anti-ageing treatments carried out by qualified doctors; plus skin treatments of a medical nature including mole removal, thread vein treatment and excessive sweating injections. The company has a network of clinics in London and Bristol.

Study Shows Liposuction Byproduct Could Lead to ED Cure


Durham, NC (PRWEB) March 19, 2015

A new study appearing in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine has moved science one step closer to finding a simple treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED) after prostate cancer surgery, eschewing the usual pharmaceutical drug route with potential for harmful side effects, in favor of stem cell therapy that can help the body regenerate.

The study, conducted in rats, compares the effectiveness of using a byproduct of liposuction uncultured stromal vascular fraction (SVF) with adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) cultured in the lab to treat ED caused by injury to the cavernous nerve (CN). This nerve, which facilities erection, is sometimes injured during a radical prostatectomy to treat prostate cancer.

ADSCs are harvested from fat and are an attractive source of stem cells for several reasons: They are abundant and can be easily obtained using minimally invasive liposuction. Also, they have characteristics similar to bone marrow-derived stem cells in terms of self-renewal and multipotency. Furthermore, ADSCs retain their ability to divide and grow longer than bone marrow-derived stem cells, which may be beneficial in treating chronic conditions.

On the other hand, cultured ADSCs have limitations, including the cost and time of culturing them, the potential for contamination, changes in cell characteristics during culturing procedures, and their tendency to sometimes form tumors. To avoid these risks, uncultured SVF has emerged as an easier and safer way to use stem and progenitor cells (which are further along in the differentiation process) derived from adipose tissue. SVF comes from the disposable byproduct of liposuction.

However, no study had yet reported side-by-side comparisons of uncultured SVF and cultured ADSCs in treating ED. That was the objective of this study, led by Dalsan You, M.D., Ph.D., and Choung-Soo Kim, M.D., Ph.D., and their colleagues at the Asan Medical Center and University of Ulsan College of Medicine in Seoul, Korea. They tested the cells using 40 rats with and without injured CNs. One group of animals was injected with cultured ADSCs; one received uncultured SVF, and a control group received no stem cells. Four weeks later, both sources of stem cells had significantly improved the animals erection function over the control group. Also, both stem cell types significantly increased the number of nNOS-positive nerve fibers, suggesting that they stimulated nerve regeneration.

However, Dr. Kim said, the cells coming from uncultured SVF outperformed the cultured ADSCs in terms of smooth muscle/collagen ratio and endothelial cell content in the blood vessels, which are also important factors in repairing ED.

Further research is now ongoing to determine the optimal protocol for cellular therapy of ED following CN injury, Dr. You added. We want to follow the progress of the animals over the long term and also we want to see what happens with multiple stem cell injections, rather than just the one given in this study.

This first study to compare two types of cells derived from fat tissue in a rat model of erectile dysfunction after prostate cancer surgery is an important step in identifying effective new treatments for this condition, said Anthony Atala, M.D., Editor-in-Chief of STEM CELLS Translational Medicine and director of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine.

As Awareness of Prostate Disease Grows, Men Discover Dr. Allens Device Treats BPH and Chronic Prostatitis without Side Effects, States Fine Treatment


London, UK (PRWEB) June 12, 2013

New survey reveals low level of awareness of prostate disease, states an independent survey conducted in Singapore, as reported by Channel NewsAsia on 11 Jun 2013. It confirms the fact that men persist in not seeking medical advice in spite of urinary symptoms. The reasons include complacency (part of ageing), embarrassment, lack of time and the avoidance behaviour. Addressing this important matter, Fine Treatment recommends Dr. Allens Device for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and chronic prostatitis as it is effective and natural, and helps to protect men from the problems caused by treating these conditions with potentially harmful antibiotics, medications or surgeries.

Dr. Colin Teo, President for the SMHS and Head of Department & Consultant Urologist, Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, said: “Prostate enlargement, or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), which is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland, will affect almost all men to some extent. However, Singaporean men might still be bottling up their health problems, and many do find it harder to unburden about prostate woes, due to the association with impotence and incontinence.

Informing men about the advantages of effective and harmless Thermobalancing therapy is important, as resort to risky medication is on the rise. Several testimonials confirm that the prostate treatment developed by Dr. Simon Allen relieves symptoms of BPH and chronic prostatitis without medication, and example can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCFy_jZgCLw.

A recent article on BPH Drug Prescribing Increasing in the U.S. published in Renal and Urology News, May 5, 2013 says, the proportion of visits in which physicians prescribed alpha blockers alone rose from 8.3% in 1993 to nearly 20% in 2010. It is also discussed that these prostate drugs are unsafe. According to The New York Times Health Guide, prostate medications may cause serious side effects. For instance, Alpha-blockers can reduce blood pressure, which may cause dizziness lightheadedness, and fainting. Moreover, tamsulosin (Flomax) is associated with a condition called intraoperative floppy iris syndrome (IFIS), a loss of muscle tone in the iris that can cause complications during eye surgery.

Surgical prostate treatment options can break a mans life. Mens-Health Forum on Retrograde Ejaculation after Prostate Surgery is full of devastating experiences. For example, a post of 25 June 2011 says, Do not get laser prostate surgery if you still enjoy having sex, you will not afterwards they dont tell you everything!

General health and well-being can be impaired by inevitable complications arising from long-term intakes of antibiotics, medications and prostate surgery, says Dr. Simon Allen. The side-effects-free Dr. Allens therapeutic device helps to recover from chronic prostatitis and reduces BPH symptoms, helping men to avoid complications from pills and surgery.

Doctors Health Press Reports on Study: NTP Warns Popular Supplement Ginkgo Biloba May Cause Cancer


Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 17, 2013

Doctors Health Press, a division of Lombardi Publishing Corporation and publisher of various natural health newsletters, books, and reports, including the popular online Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin, is reporting on a new study finding that the popular supplement ginkgo biloba may cause cancer.

As Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin (http://www.doctorshealthpress.com/cancer-articles/ginkgo-biloba-friend-or-foe) notes, ginkgo biloba has held a place of prominence in the world of herbal remedies for most of the past decade. This herb has been touted for its ability to enhance memory and delay the onset of Alzheimers symptoms. Ginkgo biloba was found by Western medicine researchers to be high in antioxidants, and it has been shown to protect against oxidative damage in the brain, heart, and eyes. Ginkgo biloba has been prescribed to treat hearing problems, impotence, and macular degeneration, to name just a few conditions.

But as the article Ginkgo Biloba: Friend or Foe? reports, a recent study says the popular herbal supplement may cause cancer. The study was conducted by none other than the National Toxicology Program (NTP) and was addressed in the NTPs Report on Carcinogens, published on behalf of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This report is based on a scientific study and is created to specifically address threats to public health in the form of toxins. These toxins can be classed as agents, substances, mixtures, or exposures, but they all have one thing in common: they potentially put people at an increased risk for getting cancer.

The Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin article states that, back in March, the NTP conducted a study that found that a dietary supplement of ginkgo caused cancer in lab animals. Researchers discovered that ginkgo biloba extract caused cancer in the thyroid glands of male and female rats. It also caused liver cancer in both male and female mice.

As Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin outlines, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stated it wont issue an alert based on one study. Critics of the study point out the animals may have been given excessively high doses of ginkgo biloba that are not similar to the dose an average human usually takes. However, experts supporting the NTP camp have countered that the testing would have been rigorous, professional, and of a very high standard.

Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin concludes by pointing out that, while the FDA has already stepped in to ban ginkgo biloba from food and drinks, it is hesitating when it comes to banning the herb from supplements; the FDA is concerned that the extract used for this study could be different from those that you are able to buy in stores and herbal pharmacies. Clearly, more studies are needed to definitively prove whether or not ginkgo biloba is a safe supplement. Until such time, Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin advises readers to consult their doctor before taking any ginkgo biloba supplement.

(SOURCE: Knowles, D., Consumer group asks FDA to ban gingko biloba after study links supplement to cancer in mice and rats, New York Daily News web site, June 3, 2013, last accessed June 6, 2013.)

Not pictured: several handfuls of sand and crumbs, a wad of chewing gum in a piece of tissue, twenty-thousand smaller receipts, twenty-two thousand identity cards for the children and tissue (because no matter how many packs of tissue I put in, there is never any in my purse when my kids have got drippy noses.)

Nighttime - soap opera

Name: Audrey
Location: Curitiba, Brazil

                Carrossel is a mexican soap opera I watched (dubbed in Portuguese) when I was a kid in 1991 and that has been rewritten and retaped (with Brazilian actors now) by a Brazilian TV channel since last year. Now my daugther watches it every night and she loves it. It is about a loving teacher (professora Helena) that goes way beyond the classroom to teach good virtues to her kids in the most different, dramatic, fiction filled ways. Don't tell anyone but we cried when professora Helena left the school for a better paying job. Of course she returned to her old job about 10 chapters later...
                It really can be cute and I must admit I have learned to enjoy wathcing it again. It is on every night at 8:30 pm and she (we) can´t miss it. So, like every good Brazilian, our nighttimes include soap opera watching. But at least this is a 'good', decent one.
