In this summary of the OurDoctor Youtube Video we discuss the “Four stages of hair growth.” The first stage is called anagen, known as the growth phase.

This stage can last anywhere from two to seven years in which you’ll see thicker, stronger, and longer hair. In this phase, on average, you will grow about half an inch of hair per month. During this time, your scalp will determine how long your hair can grow as most have seen anywhere from 16 to over 32 inches of hair.

The second stage is called catechin, which is also known as the involution phase. This phase usually lasts a few weeks or months and is known as the scientific phase. The reason is your hair gets signaled by your own body to tell it to stop growing.

Because of this, your hair begins the process of falling out, but also your hair follicles respond by shrinking and detaching themselves from the scalps of blood supply. There is nothing to worry about because hair production is good in this phase, and your hair usually falls out because new hair is coming in.

The third stage is called telogen, or the resting phase. This is called the resting phase because your hair is finally done detaching itself from your scalp. In this stage, you will see an increased number of new hair follicles that are growing hair.

In this stage, the shedding rate has also slowed down, and you will have noticed an overall increased volume of hair, and the fourth stage is called exogen, which is known as the shedding phase. This stage can last anywhere from two to seven months.

In this phase, your hair falls out of your scalp, but it is usually because of your everyday routine. For example, losing 50 to 100 hairs daily in this phase is normal. Don’t be alarmed if you are also losing this hair by simply shampooing, conditioning, brushing, or even blow drying your hair.

So how do you maintain your hair healthy during these four stages? There are several natural ways to keep your hair healthy and complete, but it depends on your genetics and hormone levels, which are largely beyond your control.

So now is the best time for you. to take control of your hair. Improper hair care or reckless hair management should not be the suitable lifestyle you want for your hair. Here are some strategies that are the best for all four stages of hair growth.

Ensure good nutrition and an intake of healthy proteins like fish, lean meats, beans, legumes, and limited or non -fat dairy products. Vitamin D, vitamin C, iron, zinc, folic acid, and vitamin B12. You should also work on reducing your overall stress.

The Mayo Clinic reports three different premature hair loss conditions related to high stress levels. They include telogen effluvium, which is a condition that accelerates hair from the antigen phase into the telogen phase, and then into the exogen phase, doubling or tripling average daily hair loss.

Trichotillomania is a psychological condition that causes an irresistible urge to pull hair from your scalp or other areas of your body. Alopecia areata is a condition that occurs when the body’s immune system attacks healthy hair follicles causing hair loss.

Take some time out of your day and learn to de -stress with the help of exercise, meditation, breathing techniques, or counseling. Then try to manage some of those daily stresses because you’ll receive many positive health benefits.

Make sure to incorporate proper hair care. Healthy hair starts with choosing suitable shampoos and conditioners. Keep on the look for products designed for your hair type whether oily, dry, delicate, color -treated, wavy, et cetera.

Gently treating your hair is essential to promoting hair growth. Avoid very hot water when you shampoo and gently dry your hair when you’re done. Hair is more vulnerable to damage when it’s wet. Turning down the heat when drying your hair may also make a difference.

Try looking into over -the -counter vitamins or prescription medicines during the four stages of hair growth. Finasteride and Minoxidil are still the best FDA -approved treatments to stop hair loss. These products can easily be obtained using a telemedicine service that our doctor can provide.

I also recommend Peak Body’s formula for hair growth for men and women. This product works as it promotes hair strength, prevents hair loss, and has the essential nutrients you need to get your hair back.

The suggested use is to take two tablets daily with meals or as directed by your healthcare professional. There are 60 tablets in this bottle and it contains no fillers. It’s non -GMO and GMP certified.

Those who have used Peak Body’s formulation tend to see results just after three to four weeks of use. One more thing I’d like to discuss is the importance of DHT. DHT or dihydrotestosterone is a potent androgen or sex hormone that helps your body develop muscle and facial hair.

However, this type of hormone in bald men can sometimes be non -functional for regrowing hair on the scalp. DHT works by attaching to your hair follicles and making them smaller and smaller until they can no longer grow hair.

In women, DHT can reduce the signs of shedding and give you the thick and softest hair. and more robust hair follicle you desire. However, too much DHT can produce negative results in both men and women.

Make sure to check with your medical professional about using DHT for hair growth before you get started. Most who use DHT also combo this hormone with Benasteride because there is an enzyme called 5 -alpha reductase, which assists in giving your hair follicle the boost it needs to miniaturize your hair follicles.

Now, minoxidil works a little differently. It helps to increase the antigen follicle size, decreasing how long the telogen phase lasts. This means that your hair is getting healthier and growing more often.

It also means that you might notice what’s called minoxidil shedding for the first few months after you start using it. But that’s just your old thinning hair making way for the new healthy hair. Peak Body has a 5% minoxidil solution available with their hair growth kits, and it is highly recommended to use daily.

After speaking to some patients with hair loss, my suggestion for the best regrowth will consist of these four products. First, get a prescription for Finasteride one milligram from our doctor or your doctor.

Second, locate the correct percentage of Minoxidil that is right for you in either foam or solution. Third, take a supplement like Peak Body’s brand for hair support. I recommend you take the Finasteride in the morning and then take the over -the -counter at night or vice versa.

And fourth, find a device to massage or stimulate the scalp to engage those hair follicles. Then sit back and watch your hair grow. If you are not getting the desired results, please get checked by your doctor, as there may be an underlying condition you may not be aware of.

We’ve talked a lot about the science behind hair growth for a good reason. Every person’s hair grows and falls out at different rates, but everyone goes through the same stages. And because of that, understanding each stage of hair growth makes it easier to evaluate your hair loss and better understand how hair loss treatments can help.

I hope I have given you a brief explanation of the four stages of hair growth. However, there is still so much more to know. Make sure to ask our doctor any additional questions you may have, as we’ll be happy to answer your questions promptly and thoroughly.

In this summary of the OurDoctor YouTube video we discuss “Ourdoctor – Diabetes – Learn How Experts Can Help Lower Your A1C Through Exercise” We are talking with Chad from PeakBody Fitness here to answer some of the crucial questions from our viewers at our doctor. Thanks, Clarissa; it is always a pleasure talking with you. According to the CDC, if you have been diagnosed with diabetes, being active makes your body more sensitive to insulin.


This hormone allows cells in your body to use blood sugar for energy, which helps manage your diabetes. Physical activity will assist in controlling your blood sugar levels and will help lower your risk of heart disease and nerve damage.


Generally, those with type 2 diabetes can reverse their condition with diet and exercise, although remission is not very common. But this also depends on your current age, weight, and lifestyle. With type 1 diabetes, I recommend you check with your doctor because you need to take steps to see how exercise affects your blood glucose levels.


Yes, that’s correct. Many of you may ask yourselves, when should a person with diabetes start exercising? The answer is yesterday. But follow these simple tips before starting because you need to exercise safely.
Get your doctor’s okay before starting an exercise program, and consider using a trainer who understands your underlying conditions, not just any random trainer. They’ll know how to monitor you correctly.
Always carry at least 15 grams of a fast-acting carbohydrate in case of low blood sugar. If you feel light-headed or dizzy, stop immediately, take a break, and drink room-temperature water. Always wear well-fitted shoes for the activity that you’re doing.


Choose the right socks. That often goes overlooked. And I also recommend having arch supports on hand just in case of a sprain or a sore tendon. Inspect your feet both before and after doing an exercise.
You need to monitor your blood circulation as you might not even know you’re causing damage to the nerves of the feet. So, also look for blisters, cuts, or sores that can lead to infections. So, does exercise help those with type 1 diabetes?


1000% yes. You can exercise and do regular athletic activities, including sports if you have type 1 diabetes. And again, you’ll have to take a few extra steps to ensure safe results. But exercise and sports can affect your blood glucose levels positively.


So it would help if you were careful because some workouts, such as heavy weight lifting or sprints, can cause you to produce more stress hormones, such as adrenaline, which will raise your blood glucose levels.


The type of exercise you perform could result in a rise or fall in your blood glucose levels. If you are affected by this, walking on a straight path or slight incline is an excellent place to start.
In your opinion, what exercises should people with diabetes avoid? I would avoid anything involving strenuous activities, such as heavy lifting, anything that causes a lot of straining, and isometric-type exercises.


I suggest less strenuous activities, such as walking, moderate lifting, and weightlifting with light weights but high repetitions. Make sure always to include stretching. Very important. Always include stretching.
Use a ball or bungee, always focus on your breathing, and take breaks when needed. You know your body’s limits better than anyone else does. Blood sugar is vital. Blood sugar is critical. And from that, see the extra weight, especially off your belly.


I’m sure all medical professionals will agree that losing weight reduces the risk of diabetes, regardless of type one or type two. I was on the verge of being a type two diabetic. And I’d say yes to physical activity more often and be more physically active in all aspects of my life.


I look forward to relaxing once I finish, but overall, I feel better about myself. I’d eat more healthy plant-type foods as these nutrients provide the minerals, vitamins, and carbohydrates, which all help balance your blood sugar and prevent dangerous complications such as heart disease.


And I would eat healthy fats. Lots of good healthy fats. Studies show that replacing saturated fats and trans fatty acids with unsaturated fats benefits your insulin levels. And that’s all related to diabetes.
Now, I’d skip fad diets and make healthier food choices always. Now, you may still be able to eat what you love but look for less fatty alternatives. Look at the nutrition label and the introduced portion control.
What exercise is best for type 2 diabetes? I know all about. that if you are living with type 2 diabetes, regular exercise is going to help manage your blood sugar levels, pure and simple. And it will help keep the excess weight off of you.


Some fitness activities include walking, cycling, and swimming. I highly recommend weight lifting, resistance band exercises, and calisthenics. And you can also do the exercises right from the comfort of your home.


Like yoga, Pilates, a bicycle or elliptical machine, high-intensity or low-interval training, you are stretching on the floor while standing and resistance training. Remember to have some carbohydrates nearby and room-temperature water if you get light-headed or nauseous.


It’s also not going to hurt if you have someone in the house who can check on you. What type of exercises should type 2 diabetics avoid? Very similar to type 1 diabetic people. Before doing any strenuous activities, check your blood sugars before, during, and after exercise or physical activity.
If you don’t review these levels, it may affect your balance and raise your chance of falling and getting hurt. You want to avoid any high-intensity training workouts. Stick with the lighter walking, cycling, and lightweight exercises to prevent blood sugar spikes because controlling blood sugar is critical.
And if you have inflammation, consider an activity that doesn’t impact your joints, like swimming. Avoid jogging. What are some of the best foods for diabetes? Another great question.


There are several foods in your local grocery store or your farmer’s market that you may eat. I like growing my vegetables because I love gardening, but some good examples would be beans, kidney beans, pinto beans, navy beans, and black beans.


They contain vitamins and minerals like magnesium and potassium, vital for your health. And always try to find dark green and leafy type vegetables. Avoid iceberg lettuce. Use vegetables, citrus fruits, and avocados.


Most types of berries are a great healthy snack. A fish contains omega-3 fatty acids, nuts, and whole grains. Now, you want to avoid anything deep-fried, guys. I know it’s horrible, but it’s probably the worst thing for you.


And avoid the fattier cuts of meat like pork or bacon or ribs, anything with cheese or prepared with lard. For those who snack, locate a healthier alternative, and feel free to ask me questions in the comments. I’ll be sure to get back to you with more nutritious choices and provide additional advice to those looking to change their lifestyle.


From all the staff of PeakBody and OurDoctor, we wish you the best on your journey to controlling your diabetes and A1C the right way. You deserve to feel great and look great. Good luck out there, and make sure to like and follow us if you’d like to see other videos. Visit OurDoctor.com

In this summary of the OurDoctor YouTube video we discuss “How to treat erectile dysfunction with Peakbody nitric oxide supplement.”

get his insight on some critical questions asked by my viewers at Art Doctor. Chad, would you like to introduce yourself to our viewers?

Yes, thank you for having me. I’m Chad Vermillion. I am a fitness instructor and bodybuilding coach. I am an amateur and competitive bodybuilder. We won a couple of shows at bodybuilding. I went from the worst shape in my life to the best shape in my life in about 16 weeks.

And now I teach other people how to do the same thing. Do your nitric oxide levels increase during exercise and how long does it take for it to start working? That’s a good question. The nitric oxide molecule can alter the energy supply and the skeletal muscle through hormonal modulation.

Nitric oxide production in your body will increase lean muscles when you’re doing physical activities. The mitochondria in the lean muscle tissue are highly abundant and they play a pivotal role in your body’s metabolism.

Exercise keeps your endothelial cells and blood vessels healthy by increasing your body’s natural ability to produce nitric oxide. High levels of L -L-arginine will assist in weight loss and improve your body’s ability to fight off fat cells and fatty tissue.

If you start a nitric oxide regimen, you’ll immediately see results. The benefits of exercising with added nitric oxide can be seen in as little as five weeks when you’re exercising for 30 minutes, at least three times a week.

But for optimal results, you’re gonna wanna combine aerobic training such as walking, and jogging, with anaerobic activity, like resistance and weight training, and a healthy diet for even quicker results.

When you’re exercising, When using the PeekBodies brand, I’d recommend taking three tablets per day or every other day to start with a small meal if you want to and washing it with room temperature water.

This supplement may help blood flow, memory, energy, libido, and erectile dysfunction. That does look like an excellent nutraceutical product to take. Can you explain what nitric oxide does with blood flow and does it increases or decreases this flow after exercise?

Yes, yes. Nitric oxide is produced by nearly every type of cell in the body and it’s essential for blood vessel health. It’s a vasodilator that relaxes the inner muscles of the blood vessels causing the vessels to widen.

Vasodilators help increase blood flow and lower blood pressure at the same time. When your cardiac output rises during exercise or strenuous activity, brain blood flow remains constant, or increases slightly.

In contrast, though, blood flow to the heart increases to meet the increased demand for mitochondrial blood flow that is primarily associated with exercise-induced increases in your heart rate. So it’s interesting as well that this product can help improve insulin sensitivity, which is the problem associated with diabetes.

Now, if you’re on blood pressure or diabetic medication, consult with our doctor to ensure that this supplement doesn’t interfere with anything you’re currently taking. Nice. My viewers are interested in knowing what a nitric oxide dump is and how this works.

Can you explain that to us? Yeah, this nitric oxide dump is common among athletes, but they rarely hear this term. Usually, they call it hit high-intensity interval training. This type of training usually consists of squatting and arm-raising exercises like presses push-ups or over-the-head barbell raises.

One of the most notable benefits of the nitric oxide dump is its ability to improve your cardiovascular health. As little as five minutes of this kind of training equals about 160 minutes of a moderate workout.

And this type of training is very effective. Training of this type is not for those with knee or shoulder pain, though. It’s a potent exercise in which you incorporate all the discussed activities into a quick session.

So you may try this method to maximize the amount of blood flow throughout the entire body rather than being limited to just one portion of your body. So do men take nitric oxide to get an erection or to increase their ability to maintain?

Yeah, one area of… the man’s body that is affected by nitric oxide is the penis. Research shows that nitric oxide plays a crucial role in erections by relaxing the vascular muscle that supplies blood to the sexually aroused.

So when you take nitric oxide, the L -L-arginine relaxes the tissues and the vascular muscles by allowing more blood flow to come in. And therefore, you’re achieving an erection without the use of prescription medications or any kind of medical device.

The desired nutraceutical or over-the-counter product is used by those who need help and is available to be purchased at your local GNC or vitamin shop. Suppose you do wish to strengthen your erection without the nitric oxide pill.

In that case, I would recommend regular exercise and significantly moderate. aerobic physical activity to improve your blood pressure, blood flow, and hormone levels, as this will naturally raise chemicals like nitric oxide in your body.

Those who some cigarettes or have high blood pressure or conditions such as diabetes or obesity will probably have erectile dysfunction because of their lack of blood flow. You need exercise to get the blood flowing and your heart rate to flush the blood through the arteries.

Can exercise or diet unblock arteries? Currently, research doesn’t support the use of specific foods to unclog arteries. However, some studies on animals show a promising future, and some of the best foods that may help dissolve plaque in your arteries may include tomatoes, onions, citrus fruits, berries, leafy greens, beans, and fish.

Losing weight, exercising more, or eating less food, high and saturated fats are all steps you can take to reduce plaques, but these steps won’t remove existing plaques but may help dissolve or prevent new plaque from forming.

Taking nitric oxide or eating nitrate-rich foods may help improve circulation by dilating blood vessels and allowing your blood to flow more easily. Follow these steps to boost your body’s circulation.

Increase cardiovascular exercise. If you’re exercising two times a week, double it. If you smoke, quit. Drink black or green tea. If you are anemic, take iron-rich supplements or eat iron-rich foods.

Decrease stress, and get more omega-3 fatty acids in your diet. Wear compression socks. Elevate your legs.

In this summary of the OurDoctor YouTube video we discuss “How can you get better-tasting semen?” Let’s find out! A question that a lot of men and even women ask is, how can I make semen taste more sweet? It’s important to know what semen is made out of.

Since each ejaculation may contain 200 million to 300 million sperm, many believe semen is just sperm. But that’s not true. It only has 3% to 5% of spermatozoa. Water, plasma, and mucus, the lubricating substance, comprise most of the fluid.

Since the semen must travel a long way and tolerate the harsh environment of the vagina, they need nutrients. When sperm rises to the egg, the nutrients in the semen help them survive and flourish.

Fructose, a form of sugar, is the sperm’s primary energy source. Calcium, citrate, glucose, lactic acid, magnesium, potassium, protein, and zinc are some of the most essential nutrients in semen.

Also, semen pH levels are alkaline, with a range of 7 .2 to 7 .4, to shield against the acidic nature of the female vagina. Because of its slightly alkaline pH levels, healthy-tasting semen can be different from person to person, but it has been described as tasting bitter or salty.

There is a hint of sweetness because it has fructose and metallic because of the essential vitamins and minerals. Can eating foods make semen taste better? What about pineapple? The legend goes that pineapple can improve the flavor of someone’s semen.

Is there any validity to it? It seems reasonable that foods with a more robust flavor or fragrance would, in turn, impact the flavor and aroma of semen, but there’s little to no scientific proof. It may become slightly more sweet if you include pineapples, oranges, and other sweet fruits in your diet, but this is primarily due to the fructose in the semen.

You and you would need to consume many of these foods to notice a change in the taste. But you need to be careful because consuming too much sugar can affect other areas of your health. If you want to change the flavor, try consuming more celery.

Celery is an excellent source of vitamin G, which may help eliminate some of the salty flavor of the sperm. Parsley, wheatgrass, cinnamon, and nutmeg are great spices that enhance the sweetness. Drinking water and staying hydrated may also help with the salty taste.

The more hydrated you are, the milder the flavor it will be. Sulfur-based foods can intensify the bitterness significantly. These foods include garlic, onions, eggs, broccoli, cabbage, radishes, Parmesan cheese, and scallops.

Other factors that intensify the bitterness and saltiness are smoking, drinking too much alcohol, drugs, red meats, asparagus, overeating fast food, and caffeine. But timing is everything. Does eating a pineapple right before intercourse or oral sex improve the flavor?

No, not really. It takes time to digest the food. Your body can take weeks to process these nutrients. It’s essential to have a well-balanced diet because not only can it make it slightly sweeter, but a healthy diet can help you with more robust and longer erections, your semen levels, testosterone levels, and your overall health.

In this summary of the OurDoctor YouTube video we discuss “At-home test kits.” We go over and explain to you the importance of keeping on top of your health with our variety of at-home test kits. First, thank you for taking time out of your day and reviewing our various lab and test kits.

In this summary of the OurDoctor YouTube video we discuss “STD Symptoms You Shouldn’t Ignore” the different types of STDs and what symptoms you need to watch for. Other STDs or STIs will have their associated symptoms. The eight most common symptoms to look out for include painful urination, unusual or odorous vaginal discharge, discharge from the penis, unusual vaginal bleeding, painful sex, sores or bumps from the genitals, oral or rectal area, abdominal pain, and swollen mid-nose. 

You can also check the site where the infection occurred for any swelling, itchiness, irritation, or, if you know, what looks like bumps, blisters, or open sores. Are you still with me? Ok, let’s keep going. According to the CDC, chlamydia is the most common bacterial STI in the US, and the only rod of transmission is through unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse.

Sometimes, there are no outward symptoms of this illness. Men will experience discomfort or leakage during urination. Women will experience bleeding between periods, pain when urinating, discharge, or adult aches in the lower abdomen. 

If the transmission is through anal sex, there can be bleeding and pain in the anus. Next up, gonorrhea, the silent disease. Name so because there might not be any symptoms. Most commonly affected are young adults between 15 and 24 years old, and it’s spread through unprotected genital, oral and anal sex.

Symptoms include:

  • Rectal, vaginal, and throat infections.
  • Urinating pain.
  • Discharge in the penis or vagina.

Antibiotics are the go-to treatment for gonorrhea. Syphilis is a dangerous bacterial infection spread through sexual contact at any bodily site other than the mouth.

Penis, vagina, anus, rectum, lips, and mouth sores are all possible transmission sites. Pregnant women must be cautious since they can pass the disease to their unborn child. Telltale signs of syphilis are a non-painful open sore that appears as the first sign of the disease. 

The second stage involves bumpy red or brown spots that may appear as a rash—treatment, penicillin, herpes, broken down into HSV1 oral herpes and HSV2 genital herpes. HSV1 appears as a sore around the mouth and lip, and HSV2 appears as a sore around the genitals and rectum. 

HSV1 can be spread by kissing or sharing objects such as forks or straws. HSV2 can only be spread through sexual contact with someone infected with HSV2. Symptoms typically appear as a single or multiple blisters on or around the affected area. 

Although there is no cure, there are treatments to relieve symptoms, and medication can decrease the pain and shorten healing time. Trichomoniasis, parasites are to blame for this one. About a third of those infected with this STI never show any signs. Itching or irritation in the penis is a common symptom of men with this STI. 

They may experience burning or discharge following urination or ejaculation. Women’s urinary tract may feel irritated, causing itching, stinging, retinas, or soreness. Alternatively, they could experience an odiferous discharge of unknown origin. 

Having sex while suffering from trichomoniasis can be an unpleasant experience. Lastly, AIDS is a disease that turns your immune system against you. It’s painful, has no treatment available, and can prove fatal. Pregnant women can transmit the virus to their unborn child during pregnancy, delivery, or breastfeeding. 

What do all these STDs have in common? All can be prevented with proper education, early testing, and the use of protection during sexual intimacy. If you experience any of these symptoms, you need to check with your medical provider immediately and get it under control. 

Your doctor may provide over-the-counter remedies to clean the area and various ointments, creams, or prescription medication. Having the proper treatment as soon as possible can help you get back to a healthier normal more quickly. Another widespread medication your doctor may provide to you is valocyclovir or baltress.

Valocyclovir has been proven to be the most effective for treating HSV, chickenpox, and shingles. Our doctor recommends using an at-home testing kit. The test ships to your door, and you receive your results online within a few days. All your information is confidential, and instructions are included with each testing kit. 

If you have any additional questions or comments, please get in touch with our doctor, as we are here to help you. You may also complete an online evaluation or call us, and a licensed physician will discuss the best treatment plans available. Take care, everyone!

In this summary of the OurDoctor YouTube video “Best Shingles Treatment,” we’ll discuss the importance of treating and suppressing a shingles outbreak. One in every three people in the U.S. will develop shingles, also known as herpes zoster virus, in their lifetime. This virus is in the same category as chickenpox and is commonly known as HHV3.


It starts as a red or pink blotchy-looking patch, usually on one side of your body, and can turn into a fluid-filled blister that typically scabs over. During the initial stage, shingles are not contagious but can be very discomforting, with shooting pains in the rash area.


In severe cases, you may develop post-herpetic neuralgia or a pHN, leading to eye complications, including vision loss and other rare diseases. Shingles usually last anywhere from three to six weeks, depending on the severity of your diagnosis. Symptoms of shingles can be uncomfortable and even painful on their own, but you should keep an eye out for any complications that may arise.


Skin infections caused by bacteria are common after blisters at first. If the nerves in your head are affected by shingles, you may develop Ramsey Hunt syndrome, which, if untreated, can cause partial facial paralysis or hearing loss. If given treatment within three days, most patients will recover fully.
Inflammation of the central nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord, is possible. These complications are potentially fatal and must be treated immediately. A rash caused by shingles typically manifests as a band of blisters along one side of the body.


Laboratory testing can also diagnose shingles by taking a sample of blister fluid or scrapings from the skin. Although there is currently no cure for shingles, getting it treated as soon as possible can reduce the risk of complications and speed up the healing process.


First, let’s talk about antiviral medication. If taken within 72 hours of the first sign of shingles, these medications may reduce discomfort and hasten the resolution of symptoms. Furthermore, they may help ward off the pain that may develop months or even years after the initial outbreak of the virus, a condition known as post-herpetic neuralgia.


Alternatively, doctors may recommend over-the-counter pain relievers. Pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen may be helpful. Your doctor may prescribe antibiotics if you get a bacterial infection from your shingles rash. If your eyes or other facial features are affected by shingles, your doctor may prescribe anti-inflammatory medications like prednisone to reduce swelling and pain.


The discomfort of shingles can get mitigated with home care. The National Institutes of Health recommends cold showers or baths to clean and calm the skin or cold compresses to alleviate the discomfort of a rash. Calamine lotion, a paste of water, baking soda, or cornstarch, can also relieve itching.
Get plenty of vitamin E, vitamin B12, and vitamin A from the food you eat. If you want to boost your immunity, try L -lycine supplements. The National Institutes of Health says that getting vaccinated against shingles is one of the ways to reduce your risk of experiencing painful symptoms or other complications.
Chickenpox vaccine, or acetalization, should be given twice to all youngsters. People above 18 who have never had chickenpox should also obtain the vaccine. Although vaccination cannot guarantee immunity, it does prevent chickenpox, and 90% of those who receive it.


Check with your general practitioner in the early stages of shingles to get it under control immediately. Our team is standing by 24 -7 to bring you the fastest medical care you deserve if you have any additional questions.

In this summary of the OurDoctor YouTube channel video “Is This The Best Couples Toy?” We’ll be discussing if the Erocome Sagitta RC couples sex toy is the best sex toys for couples?

Closing the time gap of an orgasm is a commonly asked question in the minds of both men and women. Studies show that men generally last about 5 to 7 minutes, and it takes women about 13 minutes to climax.

A simultaneous orgasm has always been an essential question by couples and provides the desired climax for most couples, especially in their 30s to mid-50s.

Many believe that sexual intercourse is the pinnacle of any relationship. Men enjoy vaginal intercourse because it is a highly pleasurable experience, and most have no issue with climax. Most women enjoy the physical closeness and emotional intimacy of a couple’s sex but have more difficulty achieving orgasm during intercourse.

In one study, 91% of men said they usually always orgasm during sex, whereas only 39% of women said they consistently orgasm during sex.

Studies show that females are four times more likely to experience unpleasant sex; however, using a vibrator during intercourse will help women reach orgasm. A vibrator not only stimulates the clitoris during penetrative sex but also provides rhythms, patterns, and intensities of feelings not replicated by hands alone.

Our unique couples toy is a high-intensity toy with eight vibration modes designed to increase pleasure during your sexual encounter. Men can use the toy as a masturbation device. Women can use it for g spot pleasure or for couples together during intercourse.

The item has a remote control to control the toy while the unit is attached or touching your private areas. The toy is also 100% waterproof and material-safe with no harmful side effects.

The battery life is up to 2 hours on a 1.5-hour charge, and it is quick to activate and determine your favorite mode with the LED lights for use in the dark. The vibrating penis ring features a textured tongue-like feeling and stretches the silicone ring, weighing about 36 grams.

Slip the ring to the base of the penis before starting intercourse. Next, place the vibrator against the clitoris to stimulate her. Either partner can control the eight vibrations modes with remote control. You will both enjoy an incredible experience like non-other.

If you feel any discomfort when using the couple’s sex toy, then make sure to contact your local physician or call us so we may assist. Our customer service agents are standing by to answer any of your questions and get you one out today with free delivery.
