Oh I’m sure. No no, it’s comfortable. You know there’s not other offices right here where everybody’s looking at you when you’re walking in like you’re going down a hall looking for something and there’s everybody, you know it’s comfortable.
And kinda when you first come in, what’s the initial impression before even talking to the first staff? Like when you first walk in the door and you’re looking around.
It’s very professional.
Very professional. You know, there’s nothing I can think of that I don’t like about it and uh, it..
What do you kinda see when you first come in?
I see a professional office, you know. I mean, you’ve got entertainment for waiting, coffee and you’ve got people that are ready to talk to you if you wanna talk to them. I didn’t come in here embarrassed or unresponsive and my guess would be that if I did, your office would know how to handle that. Your office would probably do a good job of.. If somebody doesn’t want to talk or if they’re embarrassed they would probably take it easy on them and try and get them to talk a little bit but getting to see you is not a problem. So the professionalism is very good.
Any other thoughts?
Well I used to question, “Why do you do this?” You’re obviously a very good doctor. You know, you could probably do something that makes a lot more money.. Oh, I don’t know how money works in medical practice and you said something that I thought.. well here’s the reason. And you said, “Because I like working on something that makes people happy. If I’m doing cancer something, the chances of them being happy aren’t very good when I give them what I can give them.” But you give people what you give them and they leave happy and it makes you happy.
Knowing that you’re going home and that you’re getting it on and being intimate with your wife who you’ve been with for years, decades, that’s fun. That’s a gift. I mean, that’s something you can do.. You know, I think medicine has gotten the way of thinking that quantity of life is more important than quality of life.
Mhm, yeah if I had to die earlier and having this going on rather than not have it anymore and die later.. I’d rather die earlier. (laughter)
(laughter) I’m with you!
I mean, that’s a little rough saying it that way but it sure adds to your quality of life. And you know, when I first met you.. There was a couple of introductory classes.. it was at a hospital. And when I walked in and saw men much older than me, one in a wheel chair, I was amazed. I thought, “Well those guys.. They’ve lost their sex long ago.” But they were as anxious to talk to you as I was. I was amazed at that, at the different ages and there were people younger than me that have different problems that you obviously have taken care of or are taking care of. So that was a lot of putting me at ease to come here, then I spoke to you in the hall that day. I walked down and I said, “Do you know where this class is?” And you went, “Come on! You’re with me!” (laughter)
I ran into you in the hallway, that’s right. (laughter)
(laughter) That’s right! And you just know how to put people at ease pretty quickly and that, that’s important.
And I think for us.. I’m trying to change the way we do healthcare for men. So guys will come in to see a physician or provider for things that really matter to them. Sex, peeing better, sleeping longer, make sure they don’t have prostate cancer, right? Making sure their testosterone levels are balanced, maybe a no needle vasectomy. But how can we help guys evolve fearlessly into the best version of themselves? Because if I can impact that and change their healthcare trajectory by even five percent now then over decades you’re really gonna have an impact on their overall health. And I think sexual health is just as important to every part of health for a guy. We identify as guys, I mean.. it’s a big part of who we are. I mean, if we can affect health in a positive way for guys, in small ways, but then it has a positive effect, a ripple effect to other parts of their lives.. Your personal life, your professional life, relationships in the community, at work, even globally depending on who you are and what you do.. But if we can initiate that kind of ripple effect, taking a pebble and dropping it into a still pond and watching it.. Now I can never measure that but that’s the concept.
No, it’s a good concept because you often see people get a devastating disease and they set their mind to beating it by whatever they have to do but they change their attitude about it and they win, not always but, making yourself that much happier has to add to your quality of life and your length of life.. All of that. You just mentioned a few things that I didn’t even realize you do. So there’s a wide range of reasons why people, a wider range than I thought of why people will end up here or not. Another good thing was my physician, my endocrinologist, he’s the one that I was telling about it. He was giving me the drugs, whatever it was, and it wasn’t working and he was really interested in knowing that I could beat this and get my life back to being more comfortable. So he constantly gives me a hard time now. I saw him the other day, he’s like, “Are you getting it on?? How’re you liking it??” (laughter) And I tell him, “It’s great!” He goes, “Yes! It is great, isn’t it!” So there’s a lot of support. And you have to.. I don’t know if people can walk in here without a reference unless they’re paying for insurance but you have to have a good relationship with your physician. Hopefully everyone has a primary care doctor they can talk to about it.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia, (BPH), explained in a short video:
Benign prostatic hyperplasia, BPH, benign prostatic hypertrophy or enlarged prostate, animated tutorial, great for patient education. The prostate is a walnut-size exocrine gland of the male reproductive system. It is located just below the urinary bladder where it wraps around the first part of the male urethra. Prostate gland produces a milky fluid that is expelled into the urethra to mix with spermatozoa during ejaculation. The fluid serves as a lubricant and nutrition for the sperms.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH, also called benign prostatic hypertrophy or enlarged prostate, is a condition in which the size of the prostate gland is increased. It is considered “benign” because it’s not a cancer, and it does not increase the risk of cancer. However, when becomes sufficiently large, the prostate tissue may compress the urethra and block the urine flow causing a number of urination problems and urinary tract infection.

One of the secrets? They’re unreliable. Oh, and men are terrified of losing them (but that’s not much of a secret):
Herein lies the constant struggle for men across the planet. A sock that fills up with blood at the slightest dirty thought. A blessing and a curse. With great power comes great responsibility. A secret buried deep in his jeans. With that in mind, here are six secrets guys won’t tell you about their boners because they’re too embarrassing. That Fassbender movie, by the way? It’s called Shame for a reason.
Today’s article is from Dear Mark, a website devoted to primal living in a modern world. Mark advocates a primal diet, good sleep, and lots of exercise. And he knows the science behind this lifestyle.
For today’s edition of Dear Mark, we’ve got three questions and three answers. First up is a question from Casey, whose father is losing strength and muscle despite maintaining an active lifestyle. What can he do — dietarily and otherwise — to staunch and reverse the losses? Next, Australian cattle farmers are increasingly turning to sprouted grain as a replacement for standard grain feed. How does it compare to pasture feeding? Are there nutritional differences between sprouted and regular grain fodder? And finally, what do we make of the recent study showing negative effects in cyclists who ate a high-pistachio diet for two weeks? Should we rethink our stance on pistachios — and nuts in general?
A good read for all ages, specifically tailored for men, but applicable for women, as well. One of his suggestions is Testosterone shots – available at MDforMen for those who need it. MDforMen will help you find out if it a good choice for you.
Here’s some interesting information linking testosterone and fat loss. It suggests that testosterone replacement therapy will help reduce weight (along with an exercise and diet program, no doubt):
It is well documented that obesity may cause hypogonadism, and that hypogonadism may cause obesity [1-4] This has generated debate about what condition comes first; obesity or hypogonadism? And what should be the first point of intervention?
In this article I will summarize data from several reviews on the associations of hypogonadism and obesity [1-4], and make the case that these conditions create a self-perpetuating vicious circle. Once a vicious circle has been established, it doesn’t matter where one intervenes; one can either treat the obese condition or treat hypogonadism first. The critical issue is to break the vicious circle as soon as possible before irreversible health damage arises.
Nevertheless, as I will explain here, treating hypogonadism first with testosterone replacement therapy may prove to be a more effective strategy because it to a large extent “automatically” takes care of the excess body fat and metabolic derangements. In addition, treating hypogonadism first also confers psychological benefits that will help obese men become and stay more physically active.
