[sharify]Most people have sex because it feels good and/or they are trying to procreate. But the benefits of sexual intercourse don’t stop there. Studies have found that sex helps to boost the immune system, enhance sleep, ease stress, lower blood pressure, reduce heart attack risk, and improve bladder control. Unfortunately, between 43 and 63 percent of American women report ongoing problems with their sexuality. The two most common complaints are:
[sharify] As women age hormone levels naturally decline and estrogen, prolactin and human growth hormone usually decrease significantly. Declining hormone levels are responsible for many menopausal symptoms and a slew of other symptoms commonly associated with aging, such as memory loss, irritability, fatigue, night sweats, loss of libido, reduced vaginal lubrication, bone density loss, reduction of skin elasticity, increased risk for cardiovascular disease, and urinary dysfunction. Fortunately, these symptoms can be prevented and/or reversed with the use of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
[sharify] Countless studies have proven fruits and vegetables help to slow down the aging process and reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, macular degeneration, bowel disorders and other chronic diseases. Many of those effects aren’t immediately observable however, which makes it easier for us to shun fruits and vegetables. Recently though, a study found that eating more fruits and vegetables actually increases our happiness and wellbeing, and the effects take place almost immediately.
[sharify] If you have never heard of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, or Stem Cell therapy, you are not alone. Both of these therapies represent a revolution in healthcare, with the ability to heal in a capacity that has never been seen before, yet they are rarely discussed or utilized. Read on to discover the benefits and uses of these two revolutionary therapies. What you will learn may just transform your life or the life of someone you one.
[sharify] Cortisol is a natural hormone that the body produces on a regular basis. Unfortunately, too much cortisol, or to little even, can be very dangerous for the body. Running on high levels of cortisol will eventually cause your body to stop making that hormone.

[sharify] When you hear the word diabetes, dietary sugar is probably the first association that comes to mind. Although too much sugar and refined carbohydrates (which are quickly broken down into sugar in the body), do contribute to metabolic syndrome, blood sugar fluctuation and diabetes symptoms; dairy and fat are actually more harmful than sugar. Before explaining further, it is important to first understand the difference between type-1 and type-2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
[sharify] During the Brinks Longevity Conference, we were able to catch up with Dr. Ron Klatz from “Simply Healthy T.V.” Dr. Klatz spoke about some very important breakthroughs regarding immortality, anti-aging, and longevity. We got into detail about what exactly is going on in the laboratories now, and what will be available in the not-so-distant future. Our main focus revolved around increasing life expectancy through genetic engineering and cellular biology stem cells.
[sharify] Chronic fatigue syndrome, or CFS, is a complicated disorder that effects more than a million Americans. In addition to causing extreme and relentless fatigue that is not solved by sleep, CFS can also cause symptoms such as muscle pain, frequent headaches, multijoint pain (without the presence of redness or swelling), insomnia, loss of memory or concentration, frequent sore throats, and tender lymph nodes. The symptoms may be worsened by physical or mental activity, and they don’t improve with rest.
