PCOS and infertility and the pearl chain

If you’ve been linked to infertility for a period of time, I suspect you’ve heard PCOS and infertility mentioned in the same sentence. PCOS has been identified as one of the leading causes of infertility in women. By the way, PCOS stands for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. This can occur in about 10% of women. Large numbers of women with PCOS are unaware they have it, and less than 25% of those with it are believed to have been diagnosed.

Researchers tend to believe that there are unusually high levels of insulin produced in certain women, and that this abundance is counteracted by the body which produces higher levels of male androgen hormones. In fact, the relationship between PCOS and infertility is not fully understood. But, in any case, the subject is complicated because women with PCOS are resistant to insulin, which causes problems with diabetes.

This is what is known. When a woman experiences menstruation, there are several follicles that develop in the ovaries. Each of the follicles has an egg, which is the most expensive term for “egg.” During the menstruation process, only one of the follicles will persist and generate an egg that will be available for ovulation. Specifically, the egg matures and LH levels rise, forcing the egg to exit the follicle. This is the essence of ovulation.

However, when a woman has PCOS, things are a little different. Generally, you will not generate enough female hormones for this to take place fully. The bottom line is that the follicles do not produce mature eggs. Alternatively, some follicles can turn into cysts. When this happens, it can be seen on ultrasound. It resembles a string of pearls in the ovary, with the “pearls” being the follicles that did not develop. Usually each of the ovaries has a series of cysts on the outside. Now, when ovulation does not occur, the progesterone necessary to thicken the uterine wall is not produced. Therefore, it is easy to see the relationship between PCOS and infertility, since the uterus is not prepared to receive a fertilized egg, even if one was available.

It is believed that certain aspects of PCOS and infertility could get worse over time. For example, irregular menstrual cycles can cause you to miss a period at all. Polycystic ovary syndrome and infertility can even branch into other seemingly bizarre symptoms. You may notice an increase in acne or experience pelvic pain. Some women have to deal with hair growth on the chest, face, and even the back. In addition to having hair where you don’t want it, the hair on your head can also get thinner. Other women with PCOS and infertility gain weight and, as noted, others face high insulin levels leading to type II diabetes.

There are some recommended interventions for women with PCOS and infertility. Some women can see improvement with just regular weight loss. Sometimes this is enough to adjust hormonal balances. When insulin plays a role, some doctors will recommend medications such as metformin. This is designed to improve the way a woman’s body absorbs insulin. A drug of this type does not act as much on blood sugar levels, but affects the insulin levels itself.

I know not everyone is crazy about pharmaceuticals, but there is another class of medications that I will mention for women with PCOS and infertility. Clomid is used to block estrogen in the brain and tricks the body into thinking that estrogen levels are excessively low. As a result, the body will respond by creating more FSH and LH. These will trigger ovulation. However, full disclosure forces me to point out that still roughly 35% of women who use it get pregnant, so clearly other issues are at play.

One final intervention for PCOS and infertility that I will mention is in vitro fertilization (IVF) and in vitro maturation (IVM). With in vitro fertilization, as you may already know, mature eggs are fertilized and placed in the woman’s uterus. Lesser known IVM, in which immature eggs are removed from the woman at an early stage of menstruation. The eggs then mature in a laboratory so they can be fertilized at that time.

Get rid of man boobs! Home workout solution

First of all, I don’t want to mislead you. There is no “secret” exercise that will magically make your man boobs disappear. HOWEVER, let’s take a look at some strategies we can employ that have a good chance of helping you get rid of man boobs:

  • Boost testosterone with strength workouts that focus on lifting HEAVY for low reps
  • Increase your body’s fat-burning human growth hormone (HGH) levels by doing several high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts per week
  • Eat less (combined with training more) to create a calorie deficit and gradual fat loss, week after week.

The importance of testosterone

Although the general opinion suggests that you cannot “punctually cut” fat, real experience shows that hormone levels play an important role in where we accumulate fat.

Just look at the differences between men and women. Higher estrogen levels in women cause them to accumulate fat in their breasts, hips, and buttocks. Men, on the other hand, tend to gain stomach fat.

More specifically, bodybuilders who abuse steroids (they basically overload their bodies with synthetic testosterone) eventually cause the body to produce excessive amounts of the female hormone estrogen. This leads to the accumulation of fat in the breasts, also called man boobs or gynecomastia.

So since injecting testosterone is obviously not the way to go, we need to maximize our testosterone levels, NATURALLY.

Lifting heavy weights in the 4-8 rep range can help the body release greater amounts of testosterone.

Testosterone boost with heavy compound elevators

When it comes to testosterone release, nothing beats movements like the squat and deadlift. Your body is forced to move A LOT of weight and muscle groups are fully activated from head to toe.

So ideally you would buy a set of olympic weights, get a couple of training sessions in proper form (crossfit trainers are great for these kinds of tips), and do 2-3 general strength workouts per week consisting of the following types of movements:

  • Deadlift or squat
  • Horizontal pushing movement (dumbbell bench press, incline dumbbell press, etc.) or vertical pushing movement (dumbbell shoulder press, military press)
  • Horizontal Pull Movement (Dumbbell Rows, Body Weighted Rows) / Vertical Pull Movement (Weight Pull-Up)
  • [To keep your body balanced, perform horizontal pushing motions on the same days as horizontal pulling motions, vertical press on the same day as vertical pulls]

Good, but what if I have a limited budget?

Coaching – Proper form is essential to prevent injury, but you can learn most of what you need to know on YouTube; for example, there are several GREAT videos on deadlift forms.

Team – It’s pretty tough to beat an Olympic weight set. Even if that’s all you have, you can at least deadlift, which many agree is the ULTIMATE strength move, especially for hormonal activation. Check Craigslist for deals, these outfits can often cost around $ 100.

If that doesn’t work for you, experiment with sandbag training. Get yourself an old army surplus duffel bag, buy a few gravel bags and throw them in the dufffel, and practice lifting it. You can do A LOT with this simple kit and it shouldn’t cost you more than about $ 15.

When it comes to pushing and pulling motions, here are some great options – remember that you can add weight as you gain strength by throwing some gravel into your backpack.

  • Horizontal pressure movements – (Reject Push-ups: Place your feet about 2 feet off the ground. For added difficulty, try it out on a DIY suspension trainer (do a Google search for several great tutorials).
  • Vertical pressure movements – Push-ups (once you’ve developed push-up strength), sandbag shoulder press, push-ups (see YouTube for details)
  • Horizontal pulling movements – Body Row on DIY Suspension Trainer (Elevate feet for added difficulty)
  • Vertical pulling movements – Pullup (no chin-up bar? Throw a rolled towel over a beam), Weighted Pullups (tie some weight through your belt)

How To Get Rid Of Man Boobs – HIIT Workout To Increase HGH And Burn Fat

HIIT consists of doing short, intense intervals of exercise followed by short breaks. One option is one minute of exercise, one minute of rest, repeated several times.

Here are some suggestions:

  • HIIT jump rope workout to burn fat – After a few minutes of warm-up, alternate one minute of high-knee sprinting with one minute of slower jumping with both legs. Continue for 10-15 minutes.
  • Belching Intervals– Burpees (do a YouTube search for instructions) are a PHENOMENAL total body conditioner. Alternate 60 seconds of burpees with 60 seconds of easy jumps, for a total of 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Sprint intervals – Alternate 60 seconds of vigorous running with 60 seconds of easier walking, for a total of 10 to 15 minutes.

Again, these are just a few ideas. Feel free to increase or decrease work and rest periods as you see fit.

Doing some workouts like this each week will increase HGH to burn fat. Follow each workout with a brisk 20 minute walk to take advantage of your body’s fat burning state.

Eat less

There are many approaches to dieting to lose fat, and some work well for some people and not others. To start with, I would like to suggest a simple idea:

Eat until you are no longer hungry, NOT until you are full!

Eating a little less, while increasing your activity with the workouts we just covered, will help you gain muscle while gradually losing body fat, INCLUDING excess male breast tissue.

Resume

So, here are three ways to attack your target and get rid of man boobs:

  • Increase Testosterone and Muscle Mass with Intense Strength Training
  • Increase HGH Levels to Burn Fat with HIIT Interval Training
  • Eat less to create a calorie deficit

Now all that’s left for you is to get to work!

The soy myth: does soy make you fat?

Did you know that you could be poisoning your body with high levels of toxins produced by too much soy in your diet? Research has shown that a soy-based diet at any age can lead to a weakened thyroid, which commonly leads to heart problems and excess fat. Could this explain the dramatic rise in obesity today?

Are you obese or overweight? If you’re eating a diet rich in soy, it could be seriously affecting your health, not to mention sabotaging your weight loss goals.

Most people are unaware of the many powerful chemical toxins in soy. One of them is phytic acid, also called phytates. These acids prevent the body from absorbing essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, and especially zinc. Unfortunately, soy is very resistant to phytate reduction techniques, such as long and slow cooking, so removing this toxin is nothing short of impossible.

Soy also contains powerful enzyme inhibitors. These inhibitors block the uptake of trypsin and other enzymes that the body needs for protein digestion, which causes severe gastric problems, reduces protein digestion, and can lead to chronic deficiencies in amino acid uptake.

Due to the way today’s soy is made and processed (fast and cheap), it doesn’t matter what kind of products you buy, organic or not. They all contain high levels of toxins and should not be eaten, or only in moderation, as is the case in Asian cultures. Contrary to popular belief, soy products have never been a staple in Asian countries. Historically, soybeans were used by the poor in times of extreme food shortages, and only then was soybeans carefully prepared through prolonged fermentation to destroy toxins in soybeans.

The average vegetarian diet in the United States today includes soy in excess of what Asians typically consume; they generally use small servings of soy to supplement their meals. The standard Asian diet consists of more natural products, much less fatty meat, greater amounts of vegetables, and more fish. Their diets are also lower in chemicals and toxins, as they eat far fewer processed foods (canned, jarred, pickled, frozen).

So if you think soy will keep you and your kids from getting fat, think again. These claims come directly from the soy industry, which has led us all to believe in its “health food” qualities. It really doesn’t make sense, especially when we know that farmers give animals soy feed to fatten them up for slaughter as quickly as possible.

Soy also contains an abundance of isoflavones (phytoestrogens), which actually interfere with the thyroid gland’s ability to produce thyroid hormones, and that means weight gain, tiredness, and depression. A diet rich in soy is also rich in isoflavones, and it doesn’t take much. Just one glass of soy milk a day, said to contain between 30 and 45 milligrams, is enough to suppress thyroid function. And with a weakened thyroid, you will find it increasingly difficult to lose weight.

It is the isoflavones in soy that are supposed to protect us from heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, and the discomfort of menopause. Not so.

But the most alarming and extremely sad effect comes from feeding soy to our babies. Although everyone knows it, breastfeeding is the best; Today’s mothers think they are doing their newborns a service by giving them soy-based formula instead of the traditional milk-based one. In fact, it is causing devastating harm to our children.

Babies fed exclusively soy-based formula have 13,000 to 22,000 times more estrogen compounds in their blood than babies fed milk-based formula, the estrogenic equivalent of at least five birth control pills per day. The premature development of girls has been linked to the use of soy formulas, as has the underdevelopment of men.

Moms who consume soy during pregnancy also put their babies at risk because isoflavones swim directly through the placenta. This can upset the hormonal balance, especially during the first three months when male fetuses are at a crucial stage of development and absolutely must have adequate testosterone. Other problems associated with both sexes fed soy infant formula include extreme emotional behavior, depression, asthma, immune system problems, pituitary failure, thyroid disorders, and irritable bowel syndrome.

In general, there are an overwhelming number of other health problems that can be associated with soy foods, including: bladder, prostate, colorectal, thyroid, and breast cancer; precancerous lesions; heart disease; type 2 diabetes; malnutrition; stunted growth; flatulence; pancreatic problems; low libido: early puberty; anemia; zinc deficiency; osteoporosis; intestinal damage; Leaky and malabsorptive gut syndrome; kidney stones; allergies infant death; alteration of the immune system; thyroid disease, and the list goes on.

The soy industry is a powerful multi-billion dollar industry. And the public relations and funding of its “health food” advertising is really causing a “health crisis.” Soy is dangerous, for you and especially for your children. Don’t get caught up in their marketing gimmicks.

Aldosterone to remove water weight

Sometimes a man wants to look as ragged and slim as possible. It can be for a competition, a photoshoot, or maybe just a hot date. Whatever the reason, in addition to muscle definition, there are two factors that impact how lean and defined you look: body fat and water retention. Obviously, you can’t look wrecked if you have a layer of fat covering your muscles. But even if your body fat is in the single digits, excess water can make you look less defined and sometimes even bloated. Minimizing excess water weight is what we are going to explore here today.

Aldosterone is one of the hormones that manages the volume of fluid retained in the body, particularly water. And while water retention won’t be an everyday problem for most men, if you’re a competitive bodybuilder or need to look very muscular for a photoshoot or special event, retaining even small amounts of excess water can do everything. the possible. difference in the world.

First, some background on aldosterone, which is released by the adrenal glands. Aldosterone is one of the hormones that helps regulate sodium and potassium levels in the body. This, in turn, helps control blood pressure and fluid and electrolyte balance in the bloodstream. The adrenal glands produce more aldosterone when the body is trying to conserve fluids and salts. This means that high aldosterone levels equate to more fluid retention in the body. When aldosterone levels are low, the body retains less water.

Actually, the whole process is handled by the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS). If you’re looking to get super crushed and tough with that contest-ready ‘paper-thin’ skin, then how to manipulate the RAAS is definitely something you want to understand. By learning to manipulate RAAS, you can influence aldosterone levels and affect the amount of water your body holds.

A typical strategy many men use to reduce the amount of water they retain is to decrease their salt intake and reduce the amount of water they drink. Lowering your salt intake is good, but it only helps up to a point. And unfortunately, because the body always strives to maintain a state of homeostasis (also known as the status quo), drinking less water causes the body’s metabolic systems to retain it. This actually causes aldosterone levels to go up, so drinking less water doesn’t have the effect you want and actually causes the body to retain more water.

So with this in mind, we know that we have to look for another strategy. Interestingly, one of the ways you can manipulate RAAS, lower aldosterone levels, and lower the amount of water retained is by drinking more water, not less. This seems contrary to what you want to achieve, but it is not the way the body works. But it is a bit more complicated than drinking liters of water before a competition or event.

Successful manipulation of RAAS to reduce water retention takes time and strategy. Finding the right ‘window of opportunity’ is essential for success. Before you start trying to reduce water retention, you will first need to make sure that you have removed unnecessary body fat. There’s no point going through the hassle of shedding water when there’s a layer of fat underneath. So the first step is to get your body fat percentage low in your teens or even in the single digits. Once you get to that point, you will be in a position to be shredded by reducing the amount of water your body retains.

The next step is to follow a specific protocol that incorporates manipulation of protein and carbohydrate ratios combined with a period of high water intake (hyperhydration) followed by a fast, timed period of limited water intake (dehydration). You will begin the hyperhydration and dehydration phases several days before the competition or another event for which you want to look super smashed.

This strategy works because the hyperhydration phase will cause your adosterone levels to drop, which means that your kidneys are removing most of the water you are drinking, which also causes you to urinate a lot. The target dehydration period will allow you to quickly lose the water weight, leaving you super shredded and ultra-lean. But because you’re doing it for such a short period of time, the inevitable spike in aldosterone levels and the accompanying spike in water retention won’t happen until after the competition or the big event.

Unfortunately, getting rid of unwanted fat is much more complicated than simply cutting calories and adding a few extra sessions of cardio each week. The problem is that our genetic programming gets in the way, making shedding fat much more complicated than we’d like. When we start cutting calories and burning more energy, our bodies believe that we are facing a shortage of food. In response, it unleashes a flood of hormonal responses that are designed to conserve energy and make sure we have fat stores to take advantage of the next ‘famine’.

These hormonal responses are what get in the way of our fat loss goals. There are three in particular that inhibit fat loss: estrogen, insulin, and cortisol. When we do the things we do to eliminate unwanted fat, the release of these hormones is triggered. And when released, each of these tells the body to increase residual fat storage, especially around the waist area. However, the good news is that we can ‘fight hormones with hormones’ and manipulate our metabolic systems to overcome these obstacles to fat loss.

The secret of this strategy is to identify the nemesis of each “bad” hormone, or in other words, the “good” hormone that does the opposite of what the “bad” hormone does. For example, testosterone is the “opposite” of estrogen. Testosterone is the male sex hormone and estrogen is the female sex hormone. To combat the fat storage effects of estrogen, we want to increase the amount of testosterone our body releases.

There are several ways to naturally increase the amount of testosterone your body releases. One of the best ways to do this is by lifting weights. In particular, increasing the density of training has proven to be an excellent technique for stimulating testosterone production. Training density refers to the amount of work you do within a given period of time. You can increase the density of your workout by lifting more weights, doing more reps, or reducing rest periods between sets.

To combat stubborn fat around your midsection, you can actually increase your training density through a modified circuit training technique. A key difference between this and other types of circuit training is that here, instead of concentrating on doing a certain number of reps, you do as many reps as you can within a certain amount of time for the first set. Then, you increase both the weight and the number of repetitions you do for the second set.

Similarly, there are training techniques you can employ to combat insulin and its impact on body fat storage. Here, training techniques focus on increasing insulin sensitivity and enhancing insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), which counteracts the effects of insulin. Dynamic training, which is based on combined movements, is particularly effective in increasing the amount of IGF-1 in the bloodstream. Higher amounts of IGF-1 nullify insulin resistance and increase the body’s ability to burn fat.

We can also combat the effects of cortisol on fat gain by increasing the amount of growth hormone (GH) our body produces. GH is the most effective compound your body produces to affect both fat loss and muscle gain. The more GH the body produces, the more fat it will burn and the more lean muscle mass it will add.

Like the other two fat-fighting hormones, certain training techniques stimulate GH production. Lactic acid training is an especially effective technique. Lactic acid is what causes the “burning” you feel when you train your muscles very hard. As annoying as that feeling may be, it triggers the release of GH that fights cortisol and fat. You can increase the release of lactic acid by lifting very slowly and then quickly (but carefully) returning to the starting position. Another way to increase GH production and decrease cortisol production is by sleeping. Yes, a good night’s rest triggers GH production and decreases cortisol production at the same time.

So there you have it: three fat-fighting training techniques at your disposal. Add them to your training arsenal and you can fight hormones and hormones and win the battle against stubborn fat, once and for all.

What John Gray says about testosterone

According to John Gray, world famous author Men are from Mars, women are from Venus:

  • The average American man has low levels of testosterone.

  • The average married man has low testosterone levels.

  • A man needs 30 times more testosterone than a woman.

  • Talking excessively increases estrogen.

  • Guys who have more time to themselves tend to have more testosterone.

Gray explained the need for men to work alone or “retreat to their caves” to restore their natural testosterone levels. This can be dirty and dangerous work, watching sports, doing car maintenance, or exercising. Guys need their time away from women, period. Gray describes the men’s actions as rubber bands. They run away, then they come back, they go away and they come back. It is nothing vindictive, but rather a natural behavior.

Women may think this is strange behavior. But you better pay attention, as not only has boy-girl behavior lowered testosterone, but the entire American lifestyle is depleting the male drive.

I have observed both in the workplace and in the media, a definite drop in North American male testosterone. It’s more than evident in the dizzying examples of:

  1. Depression. There is a significant increase in lack of sexual desire and poor concentration in men. In recent years, five of the funerals I have attended were for suicide men, mostly soldiers and a firefighter. All for high testosterone jobs.

  2. Weight gain. You can’t walk down a street without seeing guys wandering around with big guts and “man boobs.” It may be time to start marketing a “Manssierre” (designed by the Kramer character on the Seinfeld show). (I used to counsel a former Canadian Special Operations soldier on fitness to no avail, until one day, I told him flatly that I was building man boobs. This insult seemed to have snapped him out of his depressive daze and we began to exercise.)

  3. Lack of ambition. You see this with tame guys on campus or in the workplace. There is a true “who cares” attitude, irritability, complaining, and a lack of personal drive.

  4. Reduced muscles. It is men’s testosterone that builds bigger muscles. Low testosterone means lack of muscles.

  5. Tired. Again, lack of personal drive. I heard a very skinny guy with a depressed chest trying to pressure wash myself while claiming to have chronic fatigue. It looked more like a low tea

Aside from John Gray’s recommendations on general behavior, men can greatly increase their testosterone by taking action in their own personal lives. Namely:

  • Avoid soy products. They contain plant estrogens.

  • Avoid high sugar intake. Sugar inhibits the growth hormone needed to build muscle and burn fat.

  • Performing strength training. Get off the cardio machines earlier and lift heavier weights. Building strength increases growth hormone and testosterone and burns fat. It also trains your body to regenerate faster than cardio.

  • Get eight hours of sleep a night. Even five to six hours of deep sleep is more productive than eight to ten hours of restless sleep.

  • Eat foods rich in protein. Your muscles, skin, hair, brain, and nerves are made of protein. Women’s fashion magazine weight loss diets often DO NOT work for men. Protein is necessary not only to build tissue, but also to fight infection and remove excess water.

I’ve seen marked physical, mental, and emotional improvements in men (and women) when they improve their hormonal balance through proper exercise, nutrition, and rest. Before taking another pill, consider improving your overall health with lifestyle changes.

Increase Sex Drive Through Resveratrol

Much has been said about the healthy benefits associated with consuming resveratrol. Scientific studies and research have shown that the use of this plant microbial substance keeps the heart healthy, maintains a balanced sugar level, helps maintain a younger appearance, improves athletic abilities and provides protection against certain diseases such as flu, accidents cerebrovascular disease, Alzheimer’s and even Cancer. These are probably reasons enough for men and women to take this compound. However, there is another reason why adults should try this supplement: it increases libido.

At one time or another, many men and women may have experienced lower libido levels, and in some cases, there are people who have trouble having a healthy sex life. The last mentioned case may be the result of unavoidable physical and mental limitations, such as prostate surgery for men and menopause for women. Other reasons that can cause dysfunctions can include stress, poor nutrition, low self-image, and a low-fat diet. Because of this, many people seek help to revive their healthy libido.

The key to understanding the effects of the aforementioned compound on sex drive and other related matters lies in understanding the hormones estrogen and testosterone. In general, these hormones are found in men and women; they only differ in terms of the amount accumulated in the body. For women, estrogen plays an important role in maintaining the vaginal lining, the shape of the breasts, and producing lubrication. On the other hand, testosterone is necessary for men to monitor the formation of their muscles and maintain a healthy sexual appetite.

Consequently, the decline in estrogen among women, which often occurs during menopause, is associated with a variety of health problems, including decreased sex drive, dry vaginal lining, and depression, to name a few. When it comes to men, lowered testosterone levels are noted as the main reasons for erectile dysfunction, decreased sex drive, and low self-esteem. In particular, estrogen in men does not represent any health benefits for them, and the same is true for testosterone in women. However, it should also be noted that excessive amounts of estrogen among men can profoundly alter their testosterone production, which in turn could result in decreased strength, reduced muscle mass, fat accumulation, dysfunction erectile and reduced sexual desire. like heart disease and prostate cancer.

You’re probably thinking by now, how does resveratrol help address these sexual and reproductive health issues? Scientific research has shown that this compound acts as an anti-estrogen, reducing the level of estrogen among men and can even suppress the testosterone that tends to convert to estrogen. This results in more muscle building, less fat, a positive mental state, a greater drive for intercourse, a higher sperm count, and of course, a better chance of becoming a father. Furthermore, laboratory results have also shown that this microbial substance prevents the growth of cancer cells in the prostate.

For women, lowering estrogen levels can be especially tricky, as estrogen is essential to your overall reproductive health. Therefore, taking such a supplement may not produce the same health benefits that men experience. However, for women who are already in the menopausal or postmenopausal stage, the intake of this substance can deeply help to alleviate the symptoms of menopause, balance the hormonal levels and can also prevent degenerative diseases such as breast cancer. However, this substance is also showing promising effects on bone health, which in turn presents the possibility of providing solutions for osteoporosis and the like.

There are many reasons why you should take resveratrol. It can help you maintain a healthy heart and blood level, achieve a sharper mind, and have a more youthful appearance. However, apart from these benefits, this plant microbial substance gains popularity due to its ability to increase sexual desire, especially among men. Considered an anti-estrogen compound, this supplement suppresses estrogen production among men, which often contributes to erectile dysfunctions that can lead to decreased sexual desire.

Before and after images of the total curve

Total Curves is an all-natural breast enhancement treatment that helps women increase breast size using all clinically proven natural herbs. There are specific herbs that focus on increasing estrogen levels in the body, thereby boosting breast growth and they have included them in their breast enhancement pills.

Also, in the past, breast creams haven’t worked for women, but with today’s technology I was amazed at how well they can work now. It is really difficult to find photos of women before and after Total Curve because the product is so new.

Also, there are not many women willing to strip everything down to show how well the products work. During my research looking for real before and after images of the total curve, I saw some photos that showed remarkable results.

The women I spoke to were very happy with the results they were seeing. Because the breasts are made up of fatty tissue, thinner women have a hard time growing their natural breast and often result in older methods such as breast tissue and shapes.

Until now, breast implants were the only option for slim women, but there are many risks involved, including leakage or additional health risks. Studies show that there is no health risk from using a natural product like these and the best part is that these same clinical studies show that the total curve actually has proven results and the before and after images show it. .

These Total Curve before and after images show the women at very noticeable magnification. You can clearly see that they had smaller breasts when they started taking some larger cup sizes after a few weeks. The breasts also look firmer as they begin to grow outward rather than downward.

Older women can easily firm their breasts and better maintain their cleavage. You can clearly see that the women in the photos had noticeably smaller breasts and after wearing the system they now fill their bra exposing a striking cleavage.

The real trick to any breast enhancement program is being able to maintain a great figure while increasing breast size at the same time and as you can see from the pictures these women have not gained weight and have only gained weight. This system only targets the breasts as it works with the estrogen levels in the body so it will not cause any additional weight gain.

The results in these photos show significant results using this program and now you can wear those low cut tops to expose your eye-catching cleavage. Not only do they have larger breasts, but they are also more confident about how their breasts view others.

You can also learn how to increase your breast size more than a few inches in just a few weeks without any risk, in fact they offer a 60 day money back guarantee when you use Total Curve Pills and Cream so you have nothing. to do. to lose.

Andropause Vs Menopause – Differences Between The Sexes

Unknown to many men, they also experience the horrors of male menopause, which involves a significant drop in reproductive hormones during middle age, usually between the ages of 40 and 60. The condition is known medically as andropause, testosterone deficiency, viropause, late-onset hypogonadism (LOH), male climacteric, androgen deficiency in the elderly man (ADAM), or partial androgen deficiency in the elderly man (PADAM).

To be more specific, while female menopause occurs when the ovaries stop working and ovulation and menstruation terminate, leading to the sudden decrease and eventual loss of estrogen hormones; alternatively, andropause involves a gradual decrease in the level of testosterone. However, while the former leads to complete infertility, the same does not happen with men. Sexual impotence aside, testosterones and sperm are continually produced, allowing the latter to produce children even into their eighties.

People experience menopause as a natural biological occurrence. However, some other factors are said to contribute to an earlier attack of the condition, such as: excessive alcohol consumption, hormonal deficiencies, obesity, improper diet, hypertension, smoking, medications, lack of exercise, psychological problems, heart disease and lung disease and surgical removal of the ovaries or uterus among women.

The main effect of menopause and andropause is that people constantly return to the stage before puberty, with symptoms that affect not only their hormones, but also their physiological, psychological, social, spiritual and sexual aspects. Notable symptoms that are common to both include: hot flashes and night sweats, fatigue, muscle and joint pain, headaches and dizziness, hair loss, low sex drive, memory loss, poorer judgment, lethargy, weight gain, digestive problems, gingivitis and mouth. problems, incontinence, itching and allergies, vaginal dryness in women and erectile dysfunction in men, difficulty concentrating, irregular heartbeat and sleep disorders.

Midlife crises or psychological and emotional changes are also experienced, such as intermittent mood swings, irritability, depression, and anxiety. Men who undergo andropause become more youthful and childish but with less bravado. They become more emotionally attached to family and friends. They become more maternal and domesticated.

Today, there are medically recognized treatments for both menopause and andropause. The most common is hormone replacement therapy. There is testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) for andropause and postmenopausal hormone therapy (PHT) for menopause, which help restore hormone levels. However, it is said that when administered incorrectly, TRT can affect sperm production and increase the risk of prostate cancer, stroke, and liver toxicity. Likewise, PHT is said to be a triggering cause of stroke among women. Other symptoms of menopause and andropause are treated for the specific medical condition experienced. The problem seen here is that the condition is not addressed comprehensively and there are still other symptoms left that are not treated.

In either case, people should know that the condition is unavoidable. Both men and women would eventually have to go through menopause. Perhaps, like other health conditions, menopause could be really bearable, except for a few signs that affect interpersonal relationships. The best way to deal with this is for the whole family to be familiar with the condition and its symptoms. Doing so will certainly help how you relate to each other as everyone begins to understand what the loved one is going through.

Diabetes and menopause

You may be thinking, what is the connection between diabetes and menopause? Well, for women who get to that age, it can be very traumatic. Menopause is not necessarily a negative experience. It is sometimes called a “life change” as there are many changes in a woman’s body, both around menopause and after.

Menopause marks a major transition into the last third of a woman’s life. It gives women and their health professionals the opportunity to review health risks, plan preventive activities, and establish follow-up strategies. This is especially important in women with diabetes due to increased menopausal cardiovascular risk and those associated with diabetes. The importance of menopause is often not appreciated by women with diabetes or their healthcare professionals, and opportunities to avoid future problems may be missed.

Menopause is a natural process that women go through as the fertile years end and the ovaries stop releasing eggs every month. Menopause is generally defined as the point at which periods stop. Menopause is not an event, but a slow process, often lasting up to 10 years. It begins during the age of 40 (sometime in your late 30s) and the average age for most women to have their last period is 51, where the female sex hormones, estrogen and progesterone, begin to decline .

How Menopause Affects Diabetes

As menopause approaches, the ovaries gradually stop producing the hormones estrogen and progesterone. Both hormones affect insulin, which is the hormone produced by the pancreas that supplies glucose, which is the life support of all cells in the body.

Lowering estrogen and progesterone levels can:

Increases blood sugar. This will mainly occur during perimenopause, where the body can become more resistant to insulin and this causes the blood sugar level to rise.

Lowers blood sugar. This will be during the time you reach menopause. Where estrogen and progesterone levels drop permanently. Where the body can regain its sensitivity to insulin, causing blood sugar levels to drop.

The hormonal fluctuations that characterize menopause can wreak havoc on hard-earned blood glucose control. With less progesterone, there may be increased sensitivity to insulin and with less estrogen, insulin resistance increases, and the lack of these hormones can also cause other changes that can worsen diabetes complications. For example, low estrogen levels increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, which is already higher for people with diabetes and osteoporosis.

Many symptoms are attributed to menopause, the most common being hot flashes, sleep disturbances, night sweats, and decreased ability to think clearly. Both menopause and diabetes produce similar symptoms. Some confuse menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, bad moods, etc. with symptoms of low blood sugar, thus incorrectly assuming that these symptoms are the result of low blood sugar. and begin to consume unnecessary calories, which in turn increases the blood sugar level and, adversely, causes increased blood sugar

Due to diabetes, women experience stronger and more frequent episodes of low blood sugar, especially at night. This can affect your sleep, already interrupted by menopause, associated with hot flashes and night sweats. Such lack of sleep causes fluctuations in blood sugar.

To combat this, women choose to take hormone replacement therapy or HRT. But this will not be possible in the case of women if they are diabetic, since these hormones affect blood sugar. But these doses with HRT are so low and not very effective. In that case, the diabetes medicine must also be adjusted.

Protect the heart

Protects bones from calcium loss that can cause brittle bones.

Eliminating symptoms like hot flashes (which are easy to confuse with hypoglycemia) helps you sleep and think more easily.

Menopause complications

Most women will experience this complication, but the intensity can vary within each woman.

Irregular bleeding

Hot flushes

Vaginal thinning and dryness

Osteoporosis

Heart diseases

Menopause is complete when you have not menstruated for 12 months. Women with type 1 diabetes experience menopause earlier than average. Women with type 2 diabetes can go through menopause later than average if they are above a healthy weight, since estrogen levels do not drop as quickly in overweight women.

This is one of the main problems for many women, as they gain weight and become less active during this time, compounding difficulties in controlling blood glucose. That is why it is vitally important to plan a nutritious, low-fat diet with calcium supplements if necessary and physical activity. Since these measures will reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by keeping the cholesterol level low and protecting the bones against the thinning of osteoporosis.

Regular exercise benefits the heart and bones, helps regulate weight, contributes to a feeling of general well-being, and improves mood. Sedentary women are much more prone to heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, and osteoporosis. They also suffer from chronic back pain, stiffness, insomnia, and irregularities. Depression is also a problem. Therefore, exercise plays an important and beneficial role, as it avoids these problems and also achieves higher levels of HDL cholesterol.

The benefits of regular exercise

o Increases circulation and improves body temperature regulation.

o Improves weight control by increasing basal metabolic rate and lean body mass.

o Reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease by strengthening the circulatory system, lowering blood pressure and maintaining a healthier blood cholesterol level.

o Increases strength and range of motion.

o Elevate your mood and manage stress.

o Reduces the likelihood of osteoporosis.

Some suggestions that can reduce the discomfort of menopause:

1.Eat well-balanced meals that are the foundation for managing diabetes.

2. Eliminate caffeine, which can help reduce hot flashes.

3. Consume more legumes and soy products, which reduces the discomfort associated with menopause, since these foods contain phytoestrogens (plant estrogens.

4. Last but not least, being physically active can help increase energy levels and give you a mental boost.

Therefore, menopause is an important phase in a woman’s life in which she experiences many physical changes. Your body goes through changes that can affect your social life, your feelings about yourself, and your functioning at work. Until recently, menopause was surrounded by misconceptions and myths, but it comes naturally; step in the aging process. So one must accept menopause and grow old gracefully, because “Like a white candle in a holy place, so is the beautiful beauty of an aged face.”

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

Endocrine disorders among women are of various types, but the most common is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which is basically an inherited disorder and can be received from either parent. The chances of developing this disorder vary from 5 to 10% among women in the age group 12 to 45 years, resulting in female subfertility. This endocrine disorder can be identified by anovulation that is diagnosed by irregular menstruation, amenorrhea, polycystic ovaries, ovulation-related infertility, excessive secretion of androgen hormones causing hirsutism, and acne. High cholesterol level, type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance are other known symptoms. All of these symptoms vary between different people. The disorder is known by other names such as polycystic ovarian disease, functional ovarian hyperandrogenism, ovarian hyperthecosis, and Stein-Leventhal syndrome. A polycystic ovary has an abnormal number of eggs that can be seen near its surface looking like cysts.

Polycystic ovary syndrome is generally described by two definitions. The first definition was given by NIH or NICHD in 1990 which suggests that if a woman suffers from oligoovulation, she shows signs of excess androgens and other entities that result in polycystic ovaries, then the woman suffers from this endocrine disorder. The second definition was given at an ESHRE / ASRM sponsored workshop held in Rotterdam in 2003 which predicts that if a woman suffers from oligoovulation or anovulation, has excess androgenic activity and symptoms of polycystic ovary, then she suffers from polycystic ovarian disease. The second definition seems to be broader and more acceptable. The main symptoms of PCOS include menstrual disorders, mainly amenorrhea and oligomenorrhea, but other menstrual disorders can also arise. Chronic anovulation causes infertility. High levels of androgens cause acne and hirsutism. Hypermenorrhea and other symptoms may also appear. About three-quarters of women with this endocrine disorder generally have hyperandrogenemia. Central obesity and insulin resistance are also noted. Serum insulin and homocysteine ‚Äč‚Äčlevels are significantly higher in women with this disease.

It is not always necessary that women who suffer from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can have polycystic ovaries and similar is the condition that all women with polycystic ovaries may not suffer from this syndrome. The syndrome can be easily diagnosed using a pelvic ultrasound, but other diagnostic tools are also available. The individual’s history based on menstrual pattern, obesity, hirsutism, and lack of breast development can help the medical professional. A gynecological ultrasound may be performed which helps in the detection of small ovarian follicles. These small follicles are believed to form due to impaired ovarian function where ovulation has not taken place due to the absence of menstruation. In a normal menstrual cycle, a single egg is released from the dominant follicle. After ovulation, the remnant of the follicle develops into a characteristic structure known as the corpus luteum formed by the action of progesterone. This structure finally disappears after 12-14 days. In PCOS, although several follicles form, none of them grow more than 5-7 mm in length and fail to enter the preovulatory stage of the menstrual cycle. According to the Rotterdam criteria, there must be 12 or more than 12 small follicles detected on ultrasound. These small follicles are generally present near the periphery of the ovarian wall giving it the appearance of a pearl necklace. The ovary enlarges and reaches a size that is 1.5 to 3 times its normal size and this is due to the presence of these abnormal follicles.

Laparoscopic examinations show the presence of a smooth white outer surface of the ovary. Serum (blood) levels of androgens specifically androstenedione and testosterone are elevated. Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate levels are also higher. Free testosterone levels are also high and give the best clue about the presence of this syndrome. The free androgen index of the ratio of testosterone to sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) is generally higher, but is a poor indicator. Some blood tests are also suggested, but they are not good indicators of the diagnosis of PCOS. The ratio of LH (luteinizing hormone) to FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) is greater than 1: 1 as assessed on the third day of menstruation. Among obese women, levels of sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) are generally low. Fasting biochemical screening and the individual’s lipid profile can be performed while looking for this syndrome. A 2-hour oral glucose tolerance test (GTT) can be performed on suspected individuals indicating impaired glucose tolerance in 15-30% of patients with this syndrome. Insulin resistance is very commonly seen in patients with PCOS. Other clinical disorders can also be associated with menstrual abnormalities, namely Cushing’s syndrome, hypothyroidism, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, and pituitary disorders.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a generically inherited condition. It is inherited in an autosomal dominant system with a higher risk of occurrence in women. The chances of inheriting the gene responsible for this syndrome are 50% if the father is a carrier of the gene. Although the gene responsible for this syndrome can be inherited from either the father or the mother and the gene can be passed on to the sons, the symptoms can only appear in the daughters. The gene responsible for this disorder has not yet been identified. Polycystic ovaries generally develop when the ovaries are stimulated to produce excessive amounts of male hormones, particularly testosterone. This can occur due to the release of excessive amounts of luteinizing hormone (LH) from the anterior pituitary gland or elevated levels of insulin in the blood of women who are sensitive to insulin or reduced levels of sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) in blood resulting in a higher level of free androgens. The syndrome has acquired its polycystic name due to the resemblance of the small follicles to cysts. The follicles develop from the primordial follicles, but their development ceases in the antral stage due to impaired ovarian function. These cysts, like follicles, are arranged on the periphery of the ovarian wall. Most patients with this disorder generally show insulin resistance and this can cause abnormalities similar to those seen in the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis.

The symptoms of polycystic ovarian disease are very complex and may not be the same for all patients. In many cases it can be characterized by hyperandrogenism and insulin resistance. Most cases of this disease have a genetic basis. Excess amounts of adipose tissue in obese people also increase androgen and estrogen levels. Adipose tissue carries an enzyme identified as aromatase that is involved in the conversion of androstenedione to estrone and testosterone to estradiol. Hyperinsulinemia causes an increase in the GnRH pulse rate, increased ovarian androgen production, decreased follicular maturation, and decreased levels of sex hormone-transporting globulin that ultimately result in polycystic ovarian disease. Chronic inflammations can also cause this syndrome. A study conducted in the United Kingdom indicated that the incidence of polycystic ovarian disease is higher in lesbian women than in heterosexual women. Medications given to patients with this disease generally focus on lowering insulin levels, restoring fertility, treating hirsutism or acne, and preventing endometrial hyperplasia, endometrial cancer, and restoration of the regular menstrual cycle. In cases where the disease is associated with obesity, weight loss is the effective strategy for the initiation of regular menstruation. A low-carbohydrate diet and regular exercise can help you lose weight.

All women with PCOS may not face the difficulty of getting pregnant, only those with anovulation can cope with the problem. Patients with anovulation problem can be treated with injections of clomiphene citrate and FSH. Patients who do not give positive results with clomiphene and FSH treatments are treated with assisted reproductive technology procedures such as controlled ovarian hyperstimulation with injections of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) followed by in vitro fertilization (IVF). Surgery is not usually done in the case of the polycystic ovary, but a laparoscopic procedure known as an ovarian drilling is usually done. Hirsutism can be treated with an effective standard birth control pill. The key ingredient in birth control pills is cyproterone acetate, which is a progestin. This compound has antiandrogenic action and blocks the activity of male hormones that are responsible for acne and unwanted hair growth on the face and body. Other medications that have antiandrogenic effects include flutamide and spironolactone which can effectively reduce hirsutism. Spironolactone is the most widely used drug in the United States. Menstrual problems can be regulated through the use of birth control pills, but these drugs can cause additional problems if they are continued for a long time. Two isomers of inositol, namely D-chiro-inositol and myoinositol, have shown promising results against this syndrome.

Women with PCOS are at risk for endometrial hyperplasia and endometrial cancer. These clinical manifestations can arise due to excessive accumulation of the uterine lining and the absence of progesterone, which is responsible for the prolonged stimulation of uterine cells by estrogen. These symptoms establish a positive background for the development of other health problems such as obesity, hyperinsulinemia, hyperandrogenism, type 2 diabetes, and insulin resistance. A 2010 study highlighted that women with polycystic ovarian disease are at high risk of being affected by type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance. High blood pressure, depression or depression with anxiety, miscarriage, excessive weight gain, cardiovascular disease, acanthosis nigricans, autoimmune thyroiditis are other risks associated with this syndrome.
