If you have ever had a panic attack, I’m sure you already know what makes them so scary.
It is the unexpected and unprovoked onset of an attack. It is the feeling of utter fear and terror. It is the sensation of a dream-like state or a trance-like state. It is the intense feeling of a need to escape. It is the dread of doing something embarrassing. It is the fear of losing control. It is the feeling of helplessness.
It is the disconcerting nausea. It is the lightheadedness and dizziness. It is the chills. It is the hot flashes. It is the numbness. It is the tingling. It is the increased sweating.
And worst of all, it is the difficulty breathing, the increased heart rate and the chest pains – It is the feeling that you are having a heart attack and may be dying.
You may not experience all of the above, but you will at least experience two or three when you have an attack.
As I mentioned before, you may feel like you are dying. Why is this? Well, for one thing, you are more aware of the pattern of your breathing and the beating of your heart. And, when people notice these things, especially with chest pains, they tend to think of a heart attack.
Panic attacks usually don’t kill anyone. They just make you feel like you are dying. But, it is always important to see a doctor. Why? So they can make sure that you are not having any heart problems, and so they can diagnose what you actually have and work with you on a treatment plan. In turn, they will help you really improve your quality of life.

This article will help you to understand the truth about male enhancement cream, which will allow you to make a decision as to whether it is the right method for you.
#1. Does it increase sex drive?
A lot of people believe that this method of male enhancement increases sex drive. The reality is that there is no proof of this, so this is not a reason for using penis enlargement cream. Instead, use it for what it is meant for – to increase your current size!
#2. Does it really work?
There have not been any published scientific tests, but the reviews throughout the internet suggest that this is an extremely effective way of increasing in size. Better still, this method actually allows you to increase in size effortlessly. Just apply the cream once a day and sit back and relax and let the cream do all the work.
#3. Are there any better methods?
I wouldn’t say better, but you certainly do have plenty of alternatives to choose from. The likes of enlargement surgery, pills and even exercising are becoming more and more popular by the day. If you want to increase in size quickly and effectively then you can use a range of methods rather than just one.
Warning: If you are looking into male enhancement, then make sure you understand the truth about male enlargement cream.
We have become a society where we want the “magic” pill to solve all our problems. It isn’t any different when it comes to finding that “magic” pill that will successfully treat premature ejaculation. Instead of getting to the root of the problem and taking care of those issues, lazy people would rather use a band-aid approach and use a short-term fix.
I can tell you there are prescription drugs available for people who experience premature ejaculation. For premature treatment, drugs such as dapoxetine and topical creams which decrease sensation around the penis are used widely by men who have histories of early ejaculation.
While it is advisable for severe cases of PE (such as ejaculating after less than a minute of entering the vagina), it is not really recommended for people who can still perform coitus for a couple of minutes.
For not so serious cases of PE, sex therapists suggest that they use natural methods such as start and stop or pressing the penis for a couple of seconds to delay sexual gratification. In fact, the start and stop method is proven to help lots of men to overcome their premature ejaculation woes. And the process is fairly simple as well.
The partner has to stimulate the man’s penis until he reaches the point when he already feels ejaculating. The man has to say when to stop and to control his ejaculation so that it will not happen. This technique is done until the third time.
It may be done manually, as if masturbating, or may be done using the mouth (as in oral sex) or in between the breasts of the partner. So long as the man does not ejaculate, the start and stop is method is the most effective method to use. The partner may allow his partner to cum on the fourth time through manual stimulation or through coitus.
Rinse and repeat this method each time you have sex and your premature ejaculation will improve. This premature ejaculation treatment is proven to be effective so instead of trying to find that expensive “magic” pill to solve your problem, why not try the start and stop method to treat premature ejaculation. It will help for the long-term.
With the current health care debate currently in the news, I keep hearing that the United States of America unquestionably has the best health care system in the world. Traditional medicine is replete with revolutionary advances that continue to stimulate the imagination of medical professional all over the planet. The way the U.S. treats a trauma patient is simply the best in the world. This is impressive, but when you think about it, most of us will never need this care to save our lives. However, the medical community’s handling of non-trauma patients is not impressive at all. The indiscriminate use of prescription drugs is killing more Americans that all other causes of death, while the medical pundits try to convince us that they keep us healthy.
A prime case in point is the careless use of a class of drugs known as statins, which incidentally, is also the biggest selling drug in the world. Revenue from the sales of statin drugs surpasses the revenues collected in all professional sports. In case you did not know, this class of drug has a single purpose, and that is to lower cholesterol levels to an unrealistically low level. I question whether everyone should have total cholesterol levels of less than 200. This is utterly ridiculous for a number of reasons. First and foremost, not everyone is the same, and everyone should not have the same cholesterol level. Secondly, how did the medical experts determine that a cholesterol level over 200 is dangerous for everyone? Last, but certainly not least, the drug companies and medical professionals mislead the public about the dangers of these drugs.
Unquestionably, statin drugs are biological poisons that slowly drain the health from people who take them. These drugs, sold under the name Lipitor. Mevacor and a lot of others, lower cholesterol levels by blocking the HMG-CoA reductase pathway in all human cells. This pathway is essential for the production of cholesterol along with other critical nutrients. Among these is coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). CoQ10 is a potent antioxidant that reduces free radicals in all cells. Co Q10 is also an electron carrier that is vital to the production of energy in the mitochondria, the power plant of the human cell. The mitochondria are responsible to generate the energy that keeps the cell alive. By eliminating the HMG-CoA reductase pathway, the body will produce less cholesterol, but it will also produce less CoQ10. The function of the mitochondria becomes less efficient and limits the amount of energy the cell is capable of producing. Keep in mind that if you totally eliminate CoQ10 the cell will die. If this cellular destruction continues, it will gradually weaken the organism.
A good example appeared in the newsletter of a prominent alternative physician. He received a letter from the wife of a man who lost his health to statin drugs. As the wife explained in her letter, her husband Joe was in excellent health at the age of 77. Joe gardened every day and regularly split logs for his fireplace. He was an active man in robust health. Joe was taking no prescription medication except for a low-dose medication to help his sluggish thyroid. During a routine examination, Joe’s doctor prescribed a statin drug. Why this happened just boggles my mind. There is certainly no scientific evidence that warrants recommending this class of medication to a healthy, vibrant 77 year old man.
In the letter, Joe’s wife explained how her husband experienced problems beginning in the first month of using the statins. He began to grow confused, something he had never experienced before. Over the next several months, the cognitive dysfunction increased, and Joe also experienced a slight loss of strength in his left arm. One of the common side effects of statin drugs is muscle weakness. Patients taking statin often report weakness and muscle aches. Sometimes, as in Joe’s case, muscle tissue became so starved for energy, it simply dissolves. This condition called rhabdomyolysis is life threatening if allowed to continue. This should be no surprise to anyone. A popular statin drug called Baycol was blamed for several deaths due to rhabdomyolysis and was withdrawn from the marketplace.
Think about this. Statin drugs inhibit the production of Co Q10. A lower level of Co Q10 weakens muscle function by reducing energy production within the cell. The heart is the highest energy-consuming muscle in the body and as levels of CoQ10 continue to decline the heart muscle will gradually weaken. If you check the side effects of statin drugs, you will find congestive heart failure on the list.
There is clear and indisputable scientific evidence that blocking the HMG-CoA reductase pathway effectively blocks the body’s ability to produce CoQ10. This was uncovered when Co Q10 was first isolated. At the time, this naturally-occurring substance was dubbed ubiquinone because it is present in every cell, in the body. Merck, the pharmaceutical giant and maker of the first statin drug, knew the dangers of statin drugs and that it would cause liver and muscle damage because of the decline in CoQ10 levels. They also knew that taking supplemental CoQ10 would ameliorate, or reverse the negative effects. Because of this, Merck applied for, and received a patent for the use of CoQ10 in the treatment of statin-induced liver and muscle damage. To this date, Merck has not used the patent, nor have they informed or educated doctors about the dangers of statin drugs.
However, what most perplexes me is that doctors have not taken the initiative to inform their patients of this information. Statin drugs cause liver and muscle damage, which will be reversed by eliminating the prescription or taking supplemental CoQ10. Volumes have been written about the adverse effects of statin drugs on the brain and heart. In the less than twenty years statins that have been in use, there has been more than one thousand articles and studies published on the toxicity of this class of drug. That amounts to more than 50 adverse articles a year.
If you are currently on a statin medication, you should talk to your doctor about reducing or eliminating the drug. Many people, including my self, have successfully reduced cholesterol levels through the use of lifestyle changes and natural therapies. Four years ago, during a routine examination, blood test results revealed that my total cholesterol was 233. My doctor suggested that I take a statin drug. I personally do not think that a cholesterol level of 233 for me is high, or a danger to my health; I normally would have just disregarded the advice. However, I thought it would be an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the power of lifestyle changes and natural therapies. I asked the doctor to wait six months while I tried a natural method to reduce the cholesterol levels.
This is exactly what happened to Joe. He like me was an active and healthy man. If I had listened to my doctor the way Joe did, I guaranty you that my life would not be the same today. Joe’s story is extremely unfortunate. After four years of being on a statin prescription, Joe now lays in hospice with multiple organ failure looming in the distance.
My six month plan to lower my cholesterol level involved some dietary changes. I did not totally eliminate fat and cholesterol, but I did moderate my intake. Eating less of these foods will effectively improve your lipid profile gradually, which is how the human body likes to change. I started adding some foods that I knew would be helpful in reducing cholesterol. I began making a conscious effort to increase my fiber intake. I ate oatmeal for breakfast and added some whole grains and vegetables to my diet.
I also increased my intake of healthy fats in the form of fish oil. Fish oil contains omega III essential fatty acids that are extremely beneficial to your lipid profile. I normally take 1000mg (2 capsules) of fish oil daily. For my six month program to lower my cholesterol, I increased my Omega III intake to 3000mg (two capsules with each meal) daily.
I also began taking 1200mg (2 capsules) of Red Yeast Rice daily. Red rice is fermented with the Monascus Purpureus strain of yeast. The resulting red yeast rice has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. Studies have shown that red yeast rice can effectively lower levels of total cholesterol, and specifically LDL, the “bad” cholesterol.
The final part of the program included some additional exercise. In my case, I chose aerobics at the gym, but you can certainly be successful just by walking. Many people make the mistake of trying to exercise too hard. This normally leads to exhaustion and disappointment every time they step on the scale. All you need to accomplish is to increase your present exercise level at a comfortable pace. You decide how far to push yourself. Remember, exercise is only a part of the program. If you add a little more exercise, and you eat a little less unhealthy food, and you eat a little more nutritious food, and add targeted dietary supplements, the changes you will see will amaze you. My doctor was sure surprised. The results of my six-month re-test showed my total cholesterol level to be 203, a drop of 15%. The six-month program was also reflected in my triglyceride levels which also dropped by a similar percentage.
I often say, if you know someone who could benefit by this information, please pass along this article. However, in the case of statin drugs, the world’s #1 selling class of drug, everyone knows someone on a statin drug. Some of you who read this may be on a statin or low-dose statin drug. Do not let the name low-dose fool you; a drop of poison over time is just as dangerous. Protecting heart-health is essential for a long and active life. Long-term statin use carries with it considerable risk for serious side effects. The decision to initiate a statin drug requires careful consideration. Speak to your doctor about eliminating the statin drug and trying the natural method. It worked for me. Red yeast rice extract contains a compound that works by the same mechanism as statin drugs to lower cholesterol. Researchers have demonstrated red yeast rice extract can lower LDL, total cholesterol and triglycerides while raising HDL, the “good” cholesterol. Raising the HDL cholesterol helps dissolve and eliminate existing plaque deposits.
If your doctor is not open to this information, you should find one who is. You can start your search at acam.org (The American College for Advancement in Medicine) or try the resources of your local health food store. Perhaps they could recommend a doctor that will listen to you. If you still decide to continue using the statin drug, you must take between 200mg and 600mg of supplemental CoQ10 to reverse and prevent liver and muscle damage.

Quick weight loss is a topic that is somewhat under discussion. Many people around us are suffering from overweight. It is natural that when we move to practical life we get so busy in our everyday life that we hardly find time to think about our body and personality. But with the passage of time it gets hard for us to change our way of life and as a result we face weight issues.
The suitable and simple step for losing fat is to compute that amount of calories which you take as part of your diet. Let’s say if the amount of calories you are taking is less that the total expenditure then the remaining amount of calories is obtained from the body fats.
This means that there are two ways for quick weight loss:
1. We can reduce the overall calories consumed.
2. The other way is to raise the sum of expended calories. This can be done by making exercise part of daily routine.
But one thing should be kept in mind that the regular calorie intake should not be less than 1200. It should be above 1200 and below 1500. If your intake is less than 1200 then it may result in some serious health problems. The better way is to make exercise part of your life, as counting calories is a difficult job and of course no one wants to do it.
Caloric expenditure can be increased with no trouble. Just start from the basic level. In the beginning try to exercise 30 minutes and from the next week gradually increase the amount of time. You can perform aerobics or weight lifting can also be useful for quick weight loss.
You should keep increasing the time and try other exercises every month in order to increase the amount of calories you burn.
Follow the plan below and get the desired results
o We can accelerate the metabolism by performing different exercises which actually help to strengthen the muscles. Just like weightlifting. Aerobics and weightlifting can go side by side.
o Dancing, jogging, walking, cycling, swimming etc are the work-out exercises which you should perform every day.
o Initially exercise for about 15 to 20 minutes every day. Five times in a week is also fine. And it is a very useful way to reduce your hunger pangs but try to avoid exercising after the dinner.
o Small breaks in exercise are good. It habit also help to increase your rate of metabolism.
Adopt these simple methods for quick weight loss
You must have asked yourself many times the question, “Acne is of how many types?” and “How do I get acne scars help?”. There are many people, including myself, that felt that acne was just acne. In my case, it was not until I turned twenty that I realized that acne was not only a problem for teenagers.
I was under this impression because all the dermatologists which I consulted told me that my acne would disappear after transitioning from the age of adolescence. But, even after I turned twenty, I had frequent break outs of acne and some were even worse than the ones I got when I was a teenager.
You might not find this very helpful, but there are various types of acne and if you can tell the difference you will already be a step closer to solving your problem.
If you ask me, I say that cystic acne is by far the most harmful one. This is because, this particular acne is as stubborn as they get. It lasts a lot longer than other acne and you experience much more severe breakouts which leave very big scars, even more so if you have a dark complexion like me. Despite using some very effective home remedies for acne scars, I was still having trouble clearing the pores on my face.
When I tell you that this particular type of acne lasts longer and is very stubborn, I mean that it is not so simple. It lasts for months and is mostly found popping up on your face. It really manages to kill a person’s confidence, specially in our society today.
Here are 3 things that I have learnt about dealing with adult cystic acne from dealing with it myself and helping many clients deal with it effectively:
1) No matter how bad your pimples look and how much they itch you, under no circumstances should you pick them.
2) You should not keep on touching your face through the day to try and find any new acne that has developed.
3) You need to consume plenty of water and visit the bathroom at least thrice each day so that all the toxics and radicals are removed from your body.
You might find all this above information to be very helpful, but may be looking for ways in which you can prevent it from occuring all together. Well, since I am a sports nutritionist, I believe very strongly that nutrition is very important. You also need to care for your body from inside. This will really help you fight acne.
If you are suffering from acne already then it is best that you start consuming a natural supplement which targerts the bacteria that causes acne from inside and also provide nourishment to your body simultaneously.
Make sure that this supplement includes only natural ingredients that are good for your body along with ingredients that will be able to target acne causing bacteria as well as inflammation at a cellular level.
There are very few supplement that I have found which are actually effective. But, there are only 2 which I would openly suggest and out of these 2 also only 1 is actually affordable to average people.
If you want to treat impotence you can do so with prescription drugs but the problem is they can have dangerous side affects and also do nothing to increase your libido which leaves many men disappointed with mens issues, as they need manual stimulation to get hard.

If you want any erection, you need to secrete high levels of nitric oxide when you become sexually aroused and the reason for this is – nitric oxide relaxes and dilates the blood vessels which lead into the penis so more blood can flow in and an erection can form. Of course man made drugs do this but so to can the herbs Cnidium, Ginseng and Horny Goat Weed but as there natural herbs there are no dangerous side affects and the even better news is – they increase sex drive at the same time.
Horny Goat Weed and Ginseng, both play a key role in boosting levels of testosterone which is needed for libido and sexual stamina and in addition, the herbs reduce stress, anxiety and lift your mood so you can focus on sex. Cnidium is a great all round blood circulation herb and increases the blood flow to the pelvic region so there is enough blood to be let in when nitric oxide secretion begins and finally, it acts to stop PDE5 building up to levels which can cause a weak erection or even impotence.
