The foods men eat may have a pronounced effect on the health of their penis. Foods containing vitamins and minerals specific to penis health support sexual function, nerve transmission and testosterone levels when consumed regularly. While it is possible to support penis health through eating specific superfoods, it can be hard to achieve every single day. Men should eat a balanced diet, use recommended nutritional supplements, and explore penis health crèmes as ways of increasing vitamins and minerals for reproductive health.
Ginger: Ginger is a warming and invigorating plant that increases circulation to the extremities and the pelvic region, supporting healthy penile erections by improving blood flow. The root of the ginger plant is a rich source of essential oils, flavonoids and other plant chemicals, which open up blood vessels once ingested and also reduce platelet aggregation. In a study published in Food and Chemical Toxicology in 2010, researchers fed mice ginger root for 65 days. By the end of the study, the mice had increased testosterone levels, increased sperm count and motility, and increased sexual organ weight. Take ginger root as a superfood tea, purchase it as a herbal extract, or consume fresh root each day with your meals. If you are on heart or blood thinning medications, check with your doctor or pharmacist before using ginger products.
Nuts : Eat nuts for your nuts, and for your penis health. Nuts such as almonds, cashews, peanuts, brazil nuts and pecans contain dense amounts of nutrients essential for male sexual health. Magnesium for nervous system health, selenium for prostate health, protein for energy, chromium for lasting blood sugar levels, and essential fatty acids for nerve transmission. While nuts contain a variety of essential fatty acids, the most common fatty acid found in nuts is oleic acid. Nerves throughout the body, including in nerves in the penis, require oleic acid to form a protective coating around the nerve fiber. Without this protective sheath, known as myelin, nerve messages become confused and fail to transmit appropriately. Consume a small handful of mixed nuts each day to promote nerve health in your penis and boost energy levels.
Mushrooms: Mushrooms have been used for vitality, longevity and sexual health for thousands of years. While white button mushrooms are the most commonly consumed edible mushroom, the world is filled with hundreds of species of edible and medicinal mushrooms, some of which may be useful for penis health. A superfood and medicinal mushroom from the Himalayas, Cordyceps sinensis, has been extensively researched for its many health promoting properties, including sexual enhancement. Cordyceps has a positive effect on nitric oxide (NO) in the penis, acting in a similar way to the drug Viagra. It also increases testosterone levels and according to a study in 2009, Cordyceps has a beneficial effect on both sexual performance and fertility of animals. Find dried cordyceps from an Asian grocer or take Cordyceps in the form of a dried extract.
Fruits:Eating fruit may not sound very masculine, but most …Read More
Just like elsewhere in the western world, In the UK as well the government has prescribed some safety regulations that have to be adhered to by any workplace. Protection against health and safety hazards may even extend to the families of people employed in hazardous occupations. In the European Union, member countries have enforced authorities to ensure that the legal basics related to occupational health and safety hazards is followed in any case.
Hazard is something that can cause harm if not controlled. A risk is the probability of the outcome which will occur if harm occurs. The outcome can be defined as the result of an uncontrolled hazard. Risk analysis is conducted to identify hazards, evaluate the risk, and identify and prioritize the required actions.
Workplace safety hazards are normally grouped into environmental hazards, environmental agents, physical agents, physical hazards, chemical agents, and biological hazards. Environmental hazards normally include asphyxiation and dehydration. Environmental agents include heat and cold stress. Physical hazards include collision, tripping, falling, and electricity. Physical agents include noise, vibration, and lighting.
Other hazards are mechanical hazards, biological hazards, and chemical agents. Depending on the type of work that is done in a factory, safety precautions have to be employed. Office workers can be affected by a flu spread by a co-worker, and a factory worker can receive serious injury because of an accident. Common health and safety hazards can be avoided by taking necessary precautions. But, even with all necessary precautions accidents do occur.
To minimize safety hazards, workers are issued safety goggles, helmets, gloves, safety shoes, and coveralls. For avoiding health hazards, a virus free and well ventilated environment is provided. Clean drinking water, clean and safe kitchen and eating areas are maintained. Some factories require medical checkups of the employees on regular basis.
There are some basic health and safety rules that all factory owners are bound to follow. There are special rules for factories that use hazardous material. These include installation of safety showers and eye wash stands. Special safety clothes may also be required by law to be provided to the employees.
The common safety and health laws that factories in the UK have to follow can be found in the local factory laws. They may differ slightly depending on the local county laws. Health laws cover providing a well ventilated, clean, and dust free environment. Safety laws require wearing of proper safety equipment as required by the type of job being performed. If it is a factory where there is a probability of falling objects striking someone, then safety helmets must be worn. If the floors are wet or slippery, proper safety shoes must be worn.
The basic rules are very general in nature as they encompass the entire business spectrum. But there are further classifications that are factory dependent. If the factory handles harmful chemicals, then the safety laws are going to be different from a factory that does packaging. One single rule cannot cover all factories’ safety and health …Read More

Our liver is a perplexing and essential organ of the body which performs more than 500 capacities. These functions incorporate the generation of bile, which helps us process our sustenance. The liver is additionally in charge of ingestion of fats, other necessary supplements like Vitamins A, D, E and K. It additionally goes about as a channel for harmful concoction substances which enter our body, similar to meds, liquor and other waste items that originated from our blood. Another vital liver capacity includes creating critical proteins that help our blood coagulation to help in quicker twisted recuperating.
When it can’t deal with the measure of poisons in our body, our liver begins to break down, and we encounter manifestations of liver ailment, such as yellowing of the eyes and skin (jaundice) as a rule related to hepatitis, dim shaded pee, effortlessly wounded skin, tingling, dark-hued stools, unusual liquid maintenance in the midriff, and notwithstanding heaving blood or going into a state of unconsciousness.

All fitness centers are a place for many types of gym goers, this does not include bodybuilding gyms and women’s only fitness centers. All fitness centers provide personal training. There has always been some separation with male and female personal trainers. The big question here is why males and females avoid personal training with the opposite sex?
From a female personal trainer perspective, I see this male and female personal trainer avoidance quite often. First, most personal trainers are willing to work with anyone and everyone. Some may prefer older adults, men, women, children, or just athletes. In my own personal experience some older women tend to avoid male personal trainers because they feel as though they are only into body building which reduces the chances of training with a male trainer. Some women think male trainers are the “Arrogant” type. A good majority of women only want to train with female trainers because they are uncomfortable with training with men. Most women are seeking trainers that are understanding and knowledgeable. Some look for trainers that specialize in certain aspect of training such as weight-loss, corrective exercise, strength training, and do not have a preference in male or female.
The other day I encountered a gym goer while training some clients. Lets call her “Connie.” She spoke with some of my clients both male and female. She asked them about my ability as a personal trainer as well as my personality. My clients then discussed my training methods and personality. When I walked over and introduced myself she said she has been looking for a personal trainer for a while now and that I seemed like the type of trainer she wanted to work with. Of course I had to ask her why. Hearing some frustration in her voice stated she felt intimidated by the male Personal Trainers that she has seen in this particular fitness center. She needed to be trained by someone more “like her”, meaning a female personal trainer.
On very rare occasions men have come to me seeking advice on reaching goals. Granted I am always willing to assist anyone with any questions fitness related whether they are male, female, young, and old. I have had men deliberately avoid me like the plague at the gym even though they have seen me training for several months. Do the letters on the back of my uniform not state “Personal Trainer”? Am I intimidating? Do you think my years of experience and knowledge are inadequate? Am I not strong enough to spot you? “Do you think you will offend me while speaking to me?”
A few years ago while at the gym with my husband. I was spotting him on his last set on the bench press. There was a guy on the chest press clearly needing some assistance. He waited until my husband was finished and walked right past me without a word and asked my husband for a spot. I was disappointed. I may not be …Read More
Some doctors believe that the penis is a barometer of a man’s overall health and that issues that affect the penis – such as chronically dry penis skin – should be looked at to see if they indicate any larger problems. With this in mind, is it possible that something like dry penis skin could give a clue as to how healthy another body part is – such as perhaps the liver? It’s interesting to think, and important to note, that paying attention to penis health could have benefits beyond the pleasure one derives from the penis at play.
Why should there be a connection between the state of one’s penis skin and the state of one’s liver? It’s hard to imagine that these two organs – one internal, one external, with functions that are so different from one another – could be connected in some way. Yet there is a basis for this.
What does the liver do?
Everyone knows the liver is vitally important, yet most people don’t know what it does. In fact, the liver plays a huge role in the metabolic processes that keep the body functioning at a healthy level.
Among its most important functions are taking the nutrients that one gets from food and drink and converting them into substances that are in the right form for the body to make efficient use of. It then stores these substances until there is a need for them, at which time it sends them on their way to the cells in need.
Another crucial role it plays: taking toxins – substances that are not useful to and are potentially harmful to the body – and either de-toxifying them (so they are basically harmless) or making sure they get sent out of the body.
Poor liver function
If the liver doesn’t function properly, it means the body doesn’t get the good substances it needs and/or it gets bad substances (toxins) that can harm it. The body then needs to find another way to rid itself of the toxins that the liver isn’t handling. And often it does that by secreting the toxins through the skin.
And that’s where dry skin comes in. Often when the body is called upon to get rid of these toxins through sweat, the toxins then create a skin reaction. Dermatitis, eczema, wrinkling, acne and red, itchy rashes are just a few of the ways that inappropriate toxin release manifests.
Many men can testify that sweating is common around the penis. There’s a reason for this. The penis and testicles tend to be among the warmest parts of the body. Part of this is biological. The thick mane of hair surrounding the penis creates natural insulation. In addition, the penis skin is very thin, in order to allow proper growth during the erect phase, and the rate of blood flow is high in the penis. These also contribute to the generation of heat.
Location adds to the sweatiness. The fact that …Read More
If you had to assign one attribute to the kind of people who jump into ice-encrusted lakes for fun, it would probably be: weird. But, if pushed for a second, I bet it would be: healthy.
Overweight, lethargic, bad skin, thin hair. These are not adjectives often associated with those crazy cold water enthusiasts. Try: athletic, youthful and toned with good complexions and lots of energy. So, what’s their secret? What are the real health benefits of regular exposure to cold water and are they available to normal people without masochistic tendencies?
1. Boosts your immune system
For your body, a sudden and drastic change in temperature constitutes an attack – as anyone who’s ever fallen overboard in British waters will concur. And, whilst “attacking” your own body may not sound like a good thing, there is no harm in keeping it on its toes. In fact, quite the opposite.
Scientists from the Czech Republic immersed witting subjects in cold water for one hour, three times a week and monitored their physiology. They found significant increases in white blood cell counts and several other factors relating to the immune system. This was attributed to the cold water being a mild stressor which activates the immune system and gives it some practice.
2. For an all-natural high
Winter swimmers talk a lot about the ‘high’ they get from cold water – a feeling of wellbeing that’s so encompassing that it becomes quite addictive (who doesn’t want to feel truly good, at least once a day?) The cause? Endorphins.
Endorphins are the body’s natural pain killers and, in the case of a cold dip, it uses them to take the sting away from your skin. So, to get high on your own supply, all you need to do is jump in a river.
And if you think that sounds dangerously close to the pleasure/pain barrier then you’re probably right. The two other primary causes for endorphin release are pain and orgasm.
The cold will also stimulate your parasympathetic system, which is responsible for rest and repair, and this can trigger the release of dopamine and serotonin. These neurotransmitters are a vital part of keeping us happy and low levels of them are linked with depression. Couple this effect with the endorphin rush as you take the plunge and it should make for a warm glow and a wide smile when you re-emerge.
3. Gets your blood pumping
Being hot brings blood to surface. Being cold sends it to your organs. Both extremes work your heart like a pump. That’s why the whole sit in the sauna, roll in the snow, sit in the sauna thing makes people glow. But why is increased blood flow good for you?
Well, it helps flush your circulation for starters, pushing blood through all your capillaries, veins and arteries. It will exfoliate your skin and flush impurities from it, thus helping your complexion (firm-bodied women of all ages around pool sides say it stops cellulite). Evidence also …Read More
When it comes to improving vision and maintaining healthy eyesight research studies suggest that there is a link between the quality of our diet and the quality of our vision health. For instance, studies show that diets that lack fruits and vegetables and include lots of junk foods and sugary foods tend to increase the risks for eye diseases such as macular degeneration, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy. On the other hand, diets that are rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and healthy proteins like albacore tuna, salmon and fish help to significantly reduce the risks for age related eye diseases. When it comes to nutrition for better vision one particular term you have probably heard mentioned many times is the word phytochemical. What are phytochemicals and what role do they play in protecting and improving our vision health?
Phytochemicals are a wide variety of chemical compounds in plants that are found in a variety of different foods such as fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts and legumes. These chemical compounds serve a variety of useful functions. They play various roles in the body in terms of disease fighting properties.They also play a role in maintaining good general health.These natural chemical plant compounds give fruits and vegetables their green,red,and purple colors and reduce the risks for diseases such as cancer,boost the body’s immune system,lower blood pressure and promote better heart health.
Phytochemicals are subdivided into 4 main categories. These include carotenoids, flavonoids, ellagic acid and allium compounds,(medicinal protective chemicals in plants that protect the heart and immune system found in onions, scallions, chives and garlic). In addition to their general health benefits the subdivision of phytochemicals called carotenoids play a major role in improving vision and protecting eye health. Some types of carotenoids include beta carotene, lycopene, lutein and zeaxanthin.
Beta Carotene: Beta Carotene which is a precursor to Vitamin A plays a role in protecting the surface of the eyes (the cornea) from bacterial infections. Vitamin A in combination with other vision promoting nutrients like Vitamin C, E, Zinc and Copper reduces the risks for age related vision diseases.
Lycopene: This is the pigment that gives tomatoes their red color. Scientific research suggests that Lycopene when combined with other vision supporting nutrients such as Lutein and Zeaxanthin may actually reduce the risks for age related macular degeneration and cataracts in aging eyes.
Lutein and Zeaxanthin: These antioxidants collectively play a role in filtering out harmful blue light from the sun and act as natural sunglasses in protecting eyesight. Concentrations of these antioxidants are found in the highest levels in the tissues of the eyes more than any other part of the body. Therefore, they play a role as powerful antioxidants in neutralizing disease causing free radical cells in the eyes that cause harm to healthy eye cells. Their role in reducing age related eye diseases such as macular degeneration and cataracts has been documented in scientific research studies.

You often hear how laughter is the best medicine, and for some people chocolate or multivitamins fit the bill instead. Each person is unique and so is his or her preferred form of medicine. What about learning something new as a form of medicine?
Often there are parts of personality, talents, and health that haven’t been expressed, at least in a while, and are just waiting to be let out. Everyone has different talents, so the key to unlocking these hidden treasures is unique to you. It could be that drawing or painting offers a form of expression that you enjoy. Writing stories, or a blog. Dancing or singing. Someone who is good at cooking dinner might try out desserts or baking instead. How about learning piano or guitar? A new sport?
Learning something new helps us feel adventure in life, which is very much a part of feeling healthy and active. When daily work and chores build up, trying something new shakes things up and encourages us to be in better tune with ourselves in many different ways–including our health. It could be that you have a talent you have exercised before, and maybe it’d be fun to take it to a new level in some way.
The adventure of learning something new can be frustrating at first, and even this feeling can contribute to your health. People can find that the frustration they experience in a new activity is one they’re dealing with on a larger level too in other parts of life. Tackling the challenge through the new learning experience can jump start changes in other areas of life too. Once you take the first step, you never know where it will lead you.
Just as life is a journey, so is health. These two experiences are woven together so that whatever you do to improve one area often improves the other one as well. Learning something new sparks both your body and your mind in new ways, impacting both your health and your life.
So, what have you been wanting to learn or try out lately that you haven’t had a chance to express yet? Maybe you’ve thought about it and it’s felt a little scary to go for it. As the season shifts slowly from winter toward spring, jump into this challenge anyway and see what happens. Enjoy the new adventure, expressing your talents, and the changes it brings to your life and your health!…Read More
A phobia is an intense fear that causes you to avoid the feared thing or endure it with unbearable mental pain. Additionally, a phobia is an irrational fear, in that most people either don’t fear the same thing that you do or fear it to a much lesser degree. Some examples of common phobias are the fear of public speaking, dating the opposite sex, heights, spiders, closed spaces, crossing bridges or tunnels, going to the dentist, swimming in the ocean, flying in planes, and being in a crowd of people.
One of the most powerful techniques used for curing phobias is called classical conditioning. Simply put, classical conditioning involves pairing a particular feeling with a particular event over and over again until the feeling and event become automatically associated with each other.
Let me give you an example. Let’s say that whenever you give a public speech, you feel intense fear. However, you wish to feel intense calm, whenever you give a public speech. How do you accomplish this?
First Step: First you must find something that makes you feel intensely calm – something like two or three shots of whiskey.
Second Step: Then whenever you give a public speech, you drink two or three shots of whiskey just before going onstage. You will undoubtedly feel calm during your public speech.
Third Step: After giving many public speeches under the influence of whiskey, you will automatically associate giving public speeches with feeling calm. Once this happens, you will be able to calmly give public speeches – without drinking whiskey beforehand! Mission accomplished, your phobia is cured!
You say, “Wait a minute! If my supervisor catches me drinking alcohol on the job, I’m history!” Good point. In many workplaces, drinking alcohol is taboo and those found committing the taboo may suffer serious consequences. Luckily, there are other sedatives that are more socially acceptable.
Some examples of socially acceptable sedatives are Remeron, Xanax, Thorazine, Risperdal, Benadryl, Lunesta, and Rozerem. All of these sedatives need to be prescribed by a physician, except for Benadryl. And taking any one of these sedatives is more discreet than drinking alcohol, since it doesn’t leave your breath smelling and your eyes red.
Okay, so which sedative should you choose? Upon researching each sedative, you see that each of them works differently, producing different types of sedation. You end up choosing Benadryl, since it is the easiest to obtain (no physician’s prescription needed) and it sedates effectively.
Benadryl (Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride)
Benadryl (diphenhydramine hydrochloride) is an antihistamine that is used to relieve allergy symptoms. It is also used as a sleep aid, due to its sedative effects. Benadryl sedates by blocking histamine from its receptor sites. Histamine is a neurotransmitter that promotes alertness, arousal, and allergy symptoms. By blocking histamine, the opposite occurs.
Another way Benadryl sedates is that it inhibits the re-uptake of serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that calms the brain. Neurons release serotonin to send calming signals throughout the brain, but then the …Read More
