Fertility Tips for Men - Boosting Male Sexual Stamina, Sexual Energy and Improving Fertility

So many of the men I work with seek fertility assistance.  To be blunt, as I am when working with my male clients, these men want help in the sexual health department.  They have erectile dysfunction, infertility, sexual performance and sexual stamina challenges and want a quick and healthy solution to help them enhance their sexual health. 

I find it an honor to help them and ultimately the women in their lives as I recommend hormone balancing plans, nutrient enhancing programs and herbals and homeopathic medication to help them enhance their sexual health.

 This short video is a short snapshot of what I would recommend and hope this helps!


Weight Loss Ideas for Men, Women, Teens, Children and Seniors to Maintain a Healthy Weight Long Term

There is not a day that goes by that I don't hear from a client in my office or see social media postings from them about their frustration when they hit the weight loss plateau.  Unfortunately it isn't a myth or some weight loss hoax - it's a legit, real time situation that needs to be addressed from a deeper - cellular & chemical level within the body.

Many weight loss enthusiasts - and I say this because many of you are veterans, having begun weight loss diets and tried an assortment of programs that have done nothing but disappoint and frustrate - reach the point of the plateau after a few months.  It usually sets in when you feel like you have the gist of the dieting and the exercise programs.

What many professionals in the field of weight loss won't tell you- many are certainly not trained in the specifics of true metabolic function - is that the endocrine system is almost always imbalanced and in need of a reset.  This reset varies per person and it's so crucial that you have a program that is individualized and customized to suit your body and importantly, your body's chemistry.

Types of Metabolic Reset :
  • Regulating Insulin Levels
  • Addressing Adrenal Insufficiency
  • Opening Up The Blocked Hypothalamus, Pituitary, Adrenal Axis
  • Balancing Core Metabolic Nutrient Deficiencies
  • Detoxifying the Body
If this resonates with you- there are ways to reset your metabolism. In my practice with my clients I incorporate a program that involves testing the adrenals ( saliva based test), testing core metabolic nutrient deficiencies (blood), addressing any toxicity issues - (hair, saliva and stool).  

You might be surprised to find that a gut bacteria or even a parasite might be the root of your weight loss woes.  If that is the case, it's so key that you test and address this in a way that is healing and rebalancing.  There are many issues at play for many weight loss enthusiasts - gluten issues, leaky gut and even food allergies that cause significant inflammation and water retention within the body. 

I want to give you a quick preview of the type of plan that I put my clients on when we are looking at a permanent weight loss plan.

I say permanent because this is a plan that is customized, individualized and tailored to address the root cause of weight loss difficulties.  By addressing the root cause(s) of weight loss challenges - we can begin a complete body reset and establish a new metabolic process that works with your body and weight loss plans versus against. 

5 Ways to Address the Weight Loss Plateau:
  1. Keep Caloric Consumption at 1800-2000 a day (especially with rigorous weight training and cardio)
  2. Support the Adrenal System
  3. Watch the sugars in"diet" related foods- even sugar alcohols- 5g or less each meal
  4. Incorporate a Detoxification Program
  5. Enrich Diet with MicroNutrients
Outside help from a health professional may be very helpful for you in being able to identify to root cause of your weight loss woes.  I welcome any questions you may have and hope to be a resource for your on your journey.

Feeling Stressed? Reach for the Flowers.... The Amazing Healing Power of Flower Remedies to Energize

If you are feeling at all emotionally or physically drained or a bit off balance there is hope and it lies just outside your doors.. or something like that.  Beyond drugs, herbs and even traditional homeopathy is something quite amazing and very natural.  The essence of flowers.

As the ancient civilizations brewed up various elements of flowers, plants and trees for healing, medicinal purposes the continuation of that has morphed into the modern day by collecting dew from certain plants to capture their healing energies.  Sounds a little far fetched, but I have been using these as a therapist for over 10 years and personally for over 15 and have seen tremendous results.

Flower remedy therapy is another modality or element that I professionally use to help balance my clients.  Particularly, flower remedies focus on mental and emotional balance.  To ignore the mind and mental/emotional aspect of healing is to disregard our most powerful and abundant source of healing.

There is much research and recent clinical data supporting the fact that what we think, focus on, worry about, obsess and fantasize about can manifest in various health ailments and concerns.  When focusing on creating mind, body, emotional healing - flower remedies are great!

There are so many to discuss but I want to share two that are my favorites.  Nearly even client I encounter is stressed.  Who isn't stressed?  Mental and emotional can be exhausting and even worse the source of serious illness and dis-ease.  As such Olive and Hornbeam are great flower remedies to implement daily to help manage stress from an internal perspective.

 Lack of adequate energy and exhaustion plague many people. Exhaustion may manifest as weariness, lack of interest in the world and/or events, inertia and a general fatigue.

Hornbeam Flower Essence

In today’s fast paced world mental exhaustion precedes physical exhaustion. Because most of us work at jobs that require mental level focus and concentration. And there is often not much physical activity. For this use a steady dose of Hornbeam flower essence. 

This amazing flower remedy will help you to shake off the patterns you feel trapped by. Hornbeam flower essence is for mental exhaustion we all know the feeling, which comes as dread in the face of our daily routine. The mental fatigue this essence works addresses is around the dreariness of routine, the doldrums and lack of fulfillment. Here are the characteristics indicative of those needing Hornbeam Flower Essence:

  • You feel you don’t have the energy to face your day
  • You wake feeling more tired than when you went to bed
  • Expect work to be tiring, you lack enthusiasm
  • You feel heavy and tired all the time
  • You miss your vitality
  • You have that “Monday Morning” feeling often

Olive flower essence
Where as Hornbeam is related to exhaustion at the mental level Olive flower essence works with physical exhaustion. This remedy is strongly indicated for those who take their physical bodies to the limit and end up suffering from it. It is indicated for those who are exhausted from:

  • not enough sleep
  • overwork
  • debilitating illness
  • poor diet
  • great productivity

Olive flower essence is for those who ignore the warning systems of the body. The body is keen to inform us when we have gone too far and are at the brink of exhaustion. To expend yourself improperly leads to energy depletion and exhaustion. Olive flower essence helps you transition to healthier patterns and more vitality. When using Olive flower essence be sure to get enough rest, a physical check up and eat well.

How to  Use

I like to see clients take fowers 2-3x a day. Especially before their more stressful events/activities.  Work - relationships- family etc.  

In addition to using these essences internally I also suggest adding Hornbeam to a spray bottle and misting your space. This will keep the energy around you fresh. 

Also keep a bottle by your computer to keep yourself fresh and lively while you work. Hornbeam is great for tired eyes, to enliven the eyes add a few drops to a warm moist towel and put over the eyes.

If stress is plaguing you and you want to look at using flower remedies, please feel free to contact me.  I provide clients consultation in person and on the phone and have a very extensive intake from from training in flower therapy.  Call the office:  727-502-3464 to schedule your individualized session.
