Drug Patents Are Good For Our Health

Miles White, Chairman and CEO of Abbott Laboratories recently wrote about the importance of drug patents for the future of medicine. He began by talking about a case settled by Abbott and the South American country of Brazil. Brazil felt that the price of Abbott’s AIDS medication Kaletra, the most widely used AIDS medication, was too high and patients could not afford it. They were threatening to break Abbott’s patent and produce a generic version locally in order to treat more patients. The two sides reached an agreement as Abbott agreed to significantly reduce the price per patient and the government agreed to honor the patent.

White points out that while this situation ended well for both parties involved, this issue should not be forgotten. He writes, “…we cannot let the agreement end discussion of the ideas involved; it is essential that we consider their implications so as to avoid situations that might not be so fortunately resolved. What hangs in the balance is how the world will continue to develop the medicines it needs.”

He also writes about the need for a balance to exist between innovation and access to medicine:

“The negotiation raised a well-worn chorus of criticisms of the patent system, but failed to address the underlying question: how would our society continue to progress without it? The problem is that our global needs and global systems are in conflict. This threatens to harm one goal, innovation, in the name of another, access to medicine. Access is the goal the world cares about and one taken seriously by innovator companies (those that conduct research and development of new medicines) that have made significant contributions to this end across the developing world – from building healthcare infrastructure in Africa, to drastic price cuts that have benefited a wide range of countries, including Brazil. But it must be recognized that access is inseparable from innovation: without access, innovation is meaningless; without innovation, there is nothing to have access to.”

White concludes by quoting President Abraham Lincoln, “The patent system added the fuel of interest to the fire of genius.” The patent system exists so that innovation can continue. So scientists’ discoveries are protected.

Juice Recipes For Better Sex!

Certain foods contain nutrients that enhance male and female libido. This is particularly important in our era of male and female Viagra and other medications for sexual dysfunction. These prescriptions are quick, short-term fixes, but don’t get to the root of the problem, and they come at a cost – not only are they expensive, but they result in a growing list of serious side effects including memory loss, hearing impairment, and vision loss!

So forget the pills and start juicing for a healthy and natural boost to your sex drive and performance! Here’s a review of the foods that contain the highest concentration of sexually stimulating nutrients.

Enhancing Male Libido

Here are the fruits and vegetables that target male libido:
1. watermelon – high in citruline which stimulates nitric oxide production which increases blood flow which enhances male sexual performance.
2. blueberries – very high in antioxidants which clean the blood of free radicals and stimulate the production of nitric oxide.
3. cherries – high in flavonoids which cleanse free radicals from arteries which in turn relaxes them and improves blood flow which is key to male sexual performance.
4. ginger – only one teaspoon a couple times a week reaps huge benefits for reducing free radicals in the blood, decreasing inflammation, relaxing arteries and improving blood flow.
5. bananas – the high potassium content relaxes blood vessel walls and increases blood flow. They also counteract the ill effects on the libido of a high sodium diet. Remember not to put bananas in your juicer or you’ll clog it – blend it and then add to your juiced mix.

Any combination of these makes a great sexual stimulant a couple hours before sex. Try a glass daily to raise your testosterone level if you notice unusual fatigue or diminishing sexual performance. Try this recipe:
¼ watermelon – with seeds but without the rind
10 cherries – without pits
¼ thumb of fresh ginger – with the skin

Add one or more of these foods to your fresh juice for added benefits:
black tea – increases testosterone and used by Chinese medicine for centuries as a cure for erectile dysfunction.
whole milk – promotes testosterone production.
olive oil – stimulates testosterone production.
flaxseed oil – full of omega-3 which among other things stimulates nitric oxide.
nutmeg – contains a very high amount of myristic which stimulates the production of nitric oxide. A study in BMC Complimentary and Alternative medicine, found that nutmeg is a bona fide aphrodisiac, increasing libido and erectile function.
garlic – increases nitric oxide production – just a little bit will do!
walnuts – highest concentration of L-arginine, an amino acid and building block of nitric oxide. For best results ¼ cup a day is suggested.
pistachios – a handful a day increases nitric oxide production due to the high content of arginine.
almonds – a small handful a couple times a week is all you need to enhance nitric oxide production due to the high concentration of vitamin E, according to the British Journal of Urology International.

Enhancing Female Libido

These fruits and veggies stimulate the sexual drive and response for women.
1. celery – contains androsterone, a hormone that stimulates the sex drive for women.
2. carrots – high in vitamin A which stimulates the epithelial tissue throughout the body.
3. dark green veggies – high in zinc which increases libido.
4. pineapple – high in manganese which is central for production of vetrogen, a hormone that is key to female sexual response.
5. avocado – high concentration of folic acid which increases energy, drive, and stamina – note: place avocado (and banana) in a blender, not your juicer, or it will clog the appliance.
6. Bananas – the high concentration of potassium and vitamin B boosts energy, and it’s high in bromelain enzymes which boost the sex drive.

Try this great juice recipe a couple of hours before sex:
8 carrots – only half peeled
2 celery stalks
1 cup pineapple – without skin

Add these foods to your juice for added sexual stimulation:
dark chocolate – studies show that it contains phenylethylamine which stimulates the sex drive. It also improves blood vessel dilation by 10%.
clove – studies show that this is actually one of the very few true female aphrodisiacs, naturally increasing desire and performance.
figs – long used as an aphrodisiac in the middle east, figs contain high concentrations of amino acids that increase female libido and stamina.
eggs – one a day keeps the stress away! High in B vitamins, eggs are a great natural way to reduce stress in men and women which is the #1 cause of low libido.
ginseng – long used in Chinese medicine to increase female libido.
other – nutritional research finds that oysters are true aphrodisiacs that raise sexual hormones in both men and women. Not so for the Spanish Fly which is a good thing since I find crushed dried beetle a turn off! And remember Rachel Welch’s favorite recipe, “The best aphrodisiac is the mind!”

Foods That Decrease Libido In Men And Women

Avoid the following if you want a healthy sex life!
sugar – decreases the male sexual drive by effecting testosterone levels – a sugar spike can reduce testosterone by 25%.
trans fats – destroys cardiovascular health and sexual function in men and women.
canned foods – inside almost every can is a liner of BPA – men exposed to high levels of this have 4 times more reports of erectile dysfunction.
soy – estrogen-like properties in soy decrease male sexual drive by decreasing testosterone.
salt – high levels create male erectile dysfunction that can’t even be treated with ED medication!
alcohol – a glass or two reduces stress and inhibition which in turn stimulates sexual feelings, but more than that actually kills sexual performance in both men and women.

So start juicing today – the nutrients found in freshly juiced fruits and vegetables are not only good for you, they will help you have more fun, too!

Loss Of Penis Sensitivity And Back Problems – Are They Linked?

Penis sensitivity is of primary importance for a man’s sexual satisfaction; the proper stimulation of the nerve endings in the penis is what sends a man into bouts of ecstasy. Yet diminished penis sensitivity occurs frequently in men, for a variety of reasons – and one of them could be related to back problems. Maintaining adequate penis health, then, includes paying attention to issues affecting the back and spinal column as well as the organ itself.

Why back problems?
It seems odd that a problem with the back could have an effect on that delicious tingling sensation that men enjoy when the penis is being stimulated. It might make some sort of sense if there was a connection with, say, a guy’s posterior or his ears, which are often considered erogenous zones. While running a soft finger down the back does produce a nice sensation, the back is hardly thought of as a hotbed of sensual stimulation.

And yet there is a direct link. But to understand why, one needs to look at the brain first.

The brain
Guys may be said to think with their male members, but the brain is really the dude in charge. The brain’s responsibilities include a major role in how a person “feels” physical sensations.

How does it do this? Basically, the brain is connected to a massive network of nerve pathways that drop from the skull and run throughout the body. When a person touches a substance or when an outside source touches him, the receptors send a signal up the nerve pathways to the brain. The brain processes this information and sends a response: “Whoa, that’s hot!” “Hey, don’t stop stroking!” “Would it kill you to use a little lubricant?”

The spine
These pathways use the spine as the major “gathering route” between the brain and the nerve endings. If the nerve system is made up of pathways, the spine is like the super expressway for the nerve system. And just like on a real highway, a little incident in the spine can have major consequences.

Significant back issues, in which the spine and its collective components suffer a major injury, can cause severe damage in several areas, including the relay of nerve information. But even tiny injuries, which may seem insignificant, can cause a diminishing of feeling in an area. When that damage is in one of the neural pathways that processes information involving the penis, this can cause a loss of penis sensitivity.

Treatment
In some cases, the injury can be such that a doctor’s aid is required to assess the damage and to determine what treatments are necessary to restore the nerve system to its proper functioning. Sometimes surgery is required.

In other cases, however, much less drastic measures can be employed. For example, many men with a loss of penis sensitivity find that therapeutic exercises, healthy dietary alterations and application of specially formulated crèmes can help restore much-needed penile sensation.

The use of a high-quality penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) should be part of a restorative treatment plan. Regular application of a crème that includes acetyl L-carnitine may be beneficial. This ingredient is neuroprotective and has been proven to assist in treating peripheral nerve damage, such as may occur on the member from years of use. In addition, a crème that includes a wide range of necessary vitamins, such as A, B5, C, D and E, can help to further enable the health of the penis by enhancing the healing process and allowing the member to become more fully responsive to sensation. And a stimulated male organ is a happy male organ.
