Are "Low T" Treatments a Fountain of Youth for Men?

Today we welcome a guest writer, David DeLuca, to share his perspective on hormone replacement therapy for men: From countless sources we hear a dangerous and seductive message: “youthfulness is good, and aging is bad.” We see advertisements for all sorts of drugs, ointments, and even surgical treatments that aim to hide the outward effects of aging. Some celebrities exfoliate their skin by bathing in wine. Yes, bathing in wine. A less outrageous technique, hormone replacement therapy (HRT), is marketed as a treatment for hypogonadism, a decrease in hormones that results in reproductive dysfunction. HRT promises boundless energy and a happier life to men and women alike. But the...

Demystifying Detoxification with Actionable Advice

What is detoxification? The term is as widely used as it is misunderstood. The underlying concept is that the toxins that accumulate in your body can cause illness and disease, and that by ridding your body of these toxins you are boosting your body's innate ability to heal. The goal of detoxification is to convert toxins into a water-soluble form that can enter your bloodstream, be processed by your liver, and then be eliminated through urine or fecal matter. Where are these toxins coming from? Primarily from you. Most toxins enter your body along with the food you eat, the water you drink, and the air you breathe. Rather than stopping all 3 of these activities, you can reduce your...

Is it true that aspirin reduces prostate cancer risk?

New research published in the New England Journal of Medicine suggests that a low dose of aspirin (81mg a day) may decrease the risk of prostate cancer in men who are high risk. According to the study, high-risk men who took aspirin or another NSAID lowered their risk for overall prostate cancer by 13% and potentially deadly prostate cancer by 17%. This association (not causation) is thought to be a result of reducing the inflammatory marker Cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) in the body. Over six thousand men between the ages of 50 and 75 participated in the study. They included men from North American and Europe. It would seem like this is great news. After all, anything that reduces one’s...

Dysfunction in the Medical Industry

Our medical industry is suffering from systemic dysfunction. The drivers behind much of this dysfunction are two-fold: conflict of interest and lack of transparency. The net result is eroded trust and reduced effectiveness. As a society, we can and must do better. Doing so will require us to collectively demand more from the various participants in the system. Today I would like to share with you our perspective here at XY Wellness on what the core issues are, and on what reforms we would like to see take place. To begin, we believe that the potential side effects of a recommended course of treatment should never be more serious than the health condition now being treated. We believe...

Dietary Supplement Industry: Heal Thyself!

Big Pharma has plenty of "bad players" and greed-driven excesses, but our Dietary Supplement industry does need to clean up its act or risk the false panacea of more FTC & FDA regulation.  Here is pointed & funny take on the matter from John Oliver, who comes from the UK, which is far more regulated in this area:  At XY Wellness, we applaud any effort to weed out players in the health care industry who are exploiting the ill and vulnerable.  In fact, please see  my manifesto (yes, it is a bit of a rant) on this very topic. All the Best, David

Anti-tumor Activity: How To Encourage It

Let’s start with some definitions: Abberant cell growth (or cancer) occurs in the absence of natural cell death causing cells to grow and divide without end. Tumor formation is the process where cells divide and form a neoplasm. Not all tumors are malignant. Malignant tumors are comprised of cancer cells that are potentially life-threatening. Angiogenesis is the process where new blood vessels grow from existing ones. It is a normal process in the body, but is also involved in the process where a dormant or benign tumor changes into a malignant one. Metastasis is the process where cancer cells spread, typically through the lymphatic system. How is prostate cancer different than...

Cancer: How to Talk to the Newly Diagnosed

How do you talk to the newly diagnosed? There is no more a potent reminder of how fragile and fleeting life is than being diagnosed with cancer. You may have family or friends who have been affected by cancer. Based on that, you may think that you understand what they are going through and how best to support and help them. You don’t. Unless you have had the words “you have cancer” directed at you, you have no idea.And I know this first-hand. I thought I understood, but apparently mortality is nothing more than an abstract concept until it is not. Today, I want to share with you three suggestions on how best to talk to and help a loved one who is newly diagnosed with prostate or...

Choosing the Right Prostate Cancer Treatment

I sat down with Dr. Geo to discuss a variety of subjects that matter greatly to our XY Wellness community. The following excerpt pertains to those initial, confusing days following a prostate cancer diagnosis: David: In my opinion, there is such a wide range of choice in treatment options that newly diagnosed men need to take the time to properly profile their prostate cancer, examine the various treatment alternatives, and then make an informed choice based on prognosis and quality of life. Dr. Geo: Yes. When you were going through this same decision process way back in 2004, the range of options was more limited than it is today. What did you end up choosing? David: Based on the...

Fitness is a Choice, Choose Well

The benefits of exercise cannot be overstated and are far reaching. This is why improving your fitness level is a key to to "turning back the clock" and reclaiming your health and quality of life. As encouragement, I want to quickly share with you a recent experience. Several months ago, I made and lost a friendly wager with my 11 year old that resulted in us buying and doing the Insanity Workout program together. The program is aptly named. Actually, the name is a bit of an understatement. It is beautifully designed and produced. It is a remarkable challenge and experience, and an accomplishment to complete it. Some quick comments: Did you know that underneath your “love handles”...
