Maca Treats Infertility, Sexual Dysfunction and Anxiety

http://cdn.wellnessmama.com/wp-content/uploads/Uses-and-Benefits-of-Maca.jpgMaca (Lepidium meyenii) is a plant that grows only at 4,000 feet above sea level in the central Peruvian Andes.  Maca is consumed by both men and women for its nutritional and medicinal properties, which have been documented to include:

* Increases sperm count

*Shrinks enlarged prostates

*Increases libido

*Treats erectile dysfunction

*Aids in overall sexual functioning

*Treats symptoms of menopause and postmenopause

*Reduces anxiety

But maca is more than a new darling in the research lab. It has stood the test of time, with anecdotal information passed from generation to generation since pre-recorded history. Besides improving sexual health, maca is a true adaptogen and known to increase stamina, memory and outlook.

Soy and soy products linked to type-1 diabetes and erectile dysfunction

Over the past few years, soy has been hailed as a miracle health food. Unfortunately, the complete opposite is true. Soy has been linked to a myriad of health conditions such as infantile leukaemia, various forms of cancer, type-1 diabetes, malnutrition, thyroid dysfunction and even erectile dysfunction.

Research has shown that babies who have been fed soy-based formulas were at higher risk for developing type-1 diabetes and thyroid disease later in life. Soy-based formulas also contain up to 1000 times more aluminium than non soy-based formulas.

Environmental Medicine Doctor Chastised
Longtime environmental medicine expert Dr. William James Rea of Dallas, Texas, was disciplined by the Texas Medical Board at the end of August 2010.1 Rea has been a pioneer in developing techniques to diagnose and treat chemically and biologically sensitive patients. His clinic has focused on patients who are extremely sensitive to allergens, but not the allergens generally scrutinized by allergy specialists. Instead, Rea diagnoses sensitivity to petroleum and industrial chemicals, pesticides, and plasticizers, addressing the problem with strict protocols for avoidance of chemical exposure. Treatments do not rely on pharmaceuticals; instead, Rea administers desensitization therapies, usually in homeopathic dosing for the offending chemicals. In rare cases, patients are so sensitive that they need to be entirely removed from exposure to any chemicals. Rea, like other environmental medicine physicians, has advised some patients to confine themselves to special living units designed of plain metal and porcelain with fully filtered air and water.
