Viagra for Women?

Pharmaceutical company Sprout has recently received approval for flibanserin, aka Addyi, a product that has been dubbed "Viagra for women." Addyi works very differently from the erectile dysfunction drug for men, though. In fact, the FDA has rejected the drug twice in the past five years, but an advisory panel of medical experts in June voted 18-6 to recommend approval if more safety restrictions were added.

Warnings and side effects for Addyi are abundant. A woman’s blood pressure can drop substantially (hypotension). There is also a chance that she might lose consciousness (syncope). Women are also warned not to drink alcohol while taking Addyi.

While Sprout expects the drug to be available by October 17, 2015, not all doctors will be able to prescribe it. The FDA’s approval has some strict requirements. Doctors must be specially trained and certified to prescribe Addyi. They must counsel patients on the risks, especially those concerning blood pressure, loss of consciousness, and interactions with alcohol. Also, the pills must be taken every day and not just on days when sex is intended.

Doesn't this sound more like a cash grab to equal the lucrative market Viagra has for men?

Is desperation or want of equality the reason why drug companies are trying to produce a female sexual stimulant similar to men? Male body chemistry is completely different. Addyi was originally produced for depression and is now marketed for sexual interest. If the person taking it was depressed and not interested in sex, maybe it had nothing to do with their body's chemistry, but the available sex partners at their disposal?

The drug was used on rats, and after administration they became sexually active, but you could give the same rats sugar and they would be just as amorous. Really, how can you compare the  intricate workings of female sexuality with rats who would mount anything, especially during mating season? The handwriting is on the wall, and unsuspecting women will line up in droves to try the new sex pill. Valent Pharmaceutical is bankrolling that women will buy, putting up 1 billion dollars for global rights to the drug, which they plan to launch this fall with neither human double-blind trials nor time to show whether the drug is safe.

There is a strong reason why it was rejected twice before, and why the panel was split in its voting at 18-6: because it has so many side effects and it will not work. In humans, flibanserin showed an effect in just 9 to 14 percent of women experiencing low sex drive, which is being called “hypoactive sexual desire disorder.” The drug increased the frequency of satisfying sexual encounters, but not much more than did a placebo. Jim Pfaus, a Concordia expert in human sexuality, reiterated one major reason for this difference: rats lack cultural inhibitions that we humans have. “When female rats want sex they go and get it … if male 1 doesn’t give it to them they go to male 2.” Is that what we are heading for: sex for the sake of sex, no matter with whom? Does one need a pill for that or just a lack or morality?

Female sexual response is complex. For most women, simply addressing difficulties with arousal may not get to the actual problem — which is often a lack of sexual desire. Many factors can influence a woman's sexual desire. For example:
  • Many women find that the stresses of daily life deplete their desire for sex.
  • Highs and lows in sexual desire may coincide with the beginning or end of a relationship or major life changes, such as pregnancy or menopause.
  • For some women, orgasm can be elusive — causing concerns or preoccupations that lead to a loss of interest in sex.
  • Desire is often connected to a woman's sense of intimacy with her partner, as well as her past experiences. Over time, psychological troubles can contribute to biological problems and vice versa.
  • Some chronic conditions, such as diabetes or multiple sclerosis, can alter a woman's sexual-response cycle — causing changes in arousal or orgasmic response. 
Life Choice offers help without side effects. Kava Kava eases the stress and allows the person to feel at ease and more social, while Neurotransmitter Support helps with issues of the mind such as depression and lack of response. Nature has always had a way of providing balance so the body responds to pleasure, for women and men.

Society, Assisted Suicide and Fear

The latest news from Doctor's Choice!

Healthy Assisted Suicide in a Fear Gripped Society

The National Post recently published an article about a nurse who chose to end her own life with lethal injection. The reason? Despite being in good health, she was "afraid of getting old and being unable to kill herself." This has sparked a suicide debate in the UK.

I understand this lady's reasoning: she has worked in care homes and seen the elderly die, and it is tragic. However, this lady is not lonely or sick: she has a 25-year-old partner and is healthy. She is not like the norm of 75-year-olds, on countless drugs and in chronic pain. What she is scared of is the unknown--worried about dying in a debilitating way. The subject of fear is everywhere today. Just watching the news makes you feel depressed…or perhaps misery likes company?

The elderly today are more concerned of sickness overtaking their lives than having money for retirement; the care home has now become the boogie man. The fear is great that they will develop dementia, Alzheimer’s, or cancer; or, be left alone in a state of dependency. The fear is literally taking their lives while living. The group Exit (a voluntary euthanasia society)--will this be the next elderly version of Logan’s Run? A one-way destination to escape the unknown aspects of death? This lady was 75, and I must reiterate, she was healthy. People today are living well into their 90’s. Did James Dean have it right: Live fast, die young, and leave a good-looking corpse?

Fear of the unknown is changing the way people think. A perfect example that was recently in the news was Angelina Jolie. She had body parts removed while being healthy, for fear of developing cancer. Fear gives way to more fear, as it quickly drives hope further from our grasp of reality. What we have become is self-centered and selfish, and it is reflected onto our children and their children. This lady stated that she did not want to be a burden to her children, and I respect this thoughtfulness, but how do the children learn about caring for others when their best example of caring is removed? If we think of it, the birth process was not easy at all; we all came the same way, especially by natural birth: cold, crying, and facing the unknown. Dying is a reflection of the life lived, and it should be a time of gracefulness and respect. Caring is a learned experience, and as it continues, it is passed throughout generations. The elderly in society used to be respected, and in some cultures, like Japan, they still are. It is no wonder why care homes are booked to capacity, for when you are old and in need, you are no longer seen as useful. How sad this new reality is, to be discarded at the very time you need the most support.

Doesn’t nature teach us the process in a very simple way? Think of the four seasons of life for a tree. As a child, you enter in the spring, with life abounding and leaves green with vibrancy. In summer, you enjoy the spirited emotions with hormones raging, the leaves are full and strong--oh how beautiful. The fall is a time of maturity and reflection; the leaves start falling, but what colours they deliver--the life's experience reflected in full display. In the winter, the leaves are gone, the limbs are bare, and the sap is now in the roots, but tree is not dead; it just looks to be sleeping. Next spring, the same tree is renewed and full of life, with no residue seen of winter.

Life from beginning to end is still life, and it should be viewed as quality all the way through, no matter the condition. How do you change the thorough process of a society which keeps contact all hours of the night with thousands of virtual friends, yet doesn’t have time for those present in the daily life? If fear and alienation become the norm as we age, how many will want to complete their journey? If only the young and healthy are to be considered, what kind of a world are we going to create? Shall we pre-book our membership in the Exit group? No, absolutely not, for us we have one hope, and that hope is for compassion to return to the very core of our existence, for where there is hope, there is also breath and a life worth living.

Instead of giving in to fear, consider products such as DMAE, GABA, Liquid Melatonin, and Neurotransmitter Support to safely fight depression without harmful side effects.

Brain Disorder: Cerebral Palsy

The latest news from Doctor's Choice!
View this email in your browser

Connecting the Dots for Developing Brain Disorders in Particular Cerebral Palsy
 

A recent Canadian study broadcast on CTV had surprising new findings on cerebral palsy. Historically, the disease has been linked to brain injury in the fetus. According to the information presented by the study, however, at least one in ten cases are due to an underlying genetic disorder.

As CTV stated, "So ingrained has medical dogma been around the root causes of cerebral palsy that 'when I showed the results to our clinical geneticists, initially they didn't believe it,'" [principal investigator Stephen Scherer] said."

Scherer went on to say, "I think what's really interesting here is that what was thought to be an almost entirely environmental disorder (caused by fetal injury or infection) has a significant genetic component."

In reality, it is preconceived dogma of root causes that drives the research studies; the only time researchers get any breakthrough is when they think outside the box, like this study did.

Still, the study concludes that parents may not be able to do anything to stave off cerebral palsy, which might not be the case. One BMJ study found that perinatal exposure to neurotropic viruses to be associated with preterm delivery and cerebral palsy.

JAMA published a study which indicated that the MMR vaccine is associated with an increased rate of febrile seizures, which could be attributed to vaccine-induced fever.

There is a connection with viruses and vaccinations; some are linked with fever and in turn liver toxicity causing jaundice. Perhaps the connection is with viral conditions resulting from vaccinations.

An Environmental Research paper stated, "Perinatal exposure to methylmercury is known to result in severe neurological effects on the developing fetus and infant, including cerebral palsy, mental retardation, and seizures."

paper from JAMA Pediatrics found interesting results in a similar vaccination study: "Severity of poisoning in mothers was related to the peak [methylmercury] concentration in their hair and in the infants to the maximum concentration in maternal hair during pregnancy. In nine cases of cerebral palsy, methylmercury exposure occurred only during the last trimester. All infants except three (two were orphaned soon after birth and one was bottle-fed) were exposed postnatally via suckling."

As a healthy brain booster, instead consider DMAE, Neurotransmitter Support, and GABA.

DMAE: DMAE has the ability to enhance brain functions at the higher level and can compensate for various neuropsychological deficits ranging from cognitive processes to aging itself. DMAE greatly reduces the lipofusion from brain and nerve cells and is able to cross the blood brain barrier. DMAE has proven to be a safe alternative for such learning and behavior problems as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Hyperkinesias.

Neurotransmitter Support: Brain energy metabolism is very important to normal brain function, so it’s no surprise to find that this factor is reduced in Alzheimer’s victims and other dementia patients: the greater the loss of energy, the more severe the dementia.  Neurotransmitter Support’s precision formulation acts to improve brain energy metabolism, and with it, brain function.

GABA: Research done at The Pain & Stress Therapy Centre in San Antonio Texas has shown pure GABA 750 mg can mimic the tranquilizing effects of Valium or Librium without the possibility of addiction or fear of being sedated. GABA fills the receptor in the brain and feeds the brain what should be there. Pure GABA dissolves in water; it is tasteless, odorless, and the calming results occur within 10 to 12 minutes.

Back to School--Being Prepared
 

As summer winds down, kids and parents everywhere are gearing up for the upcoming school season. Besides school supplies, are your kids fully prepared?

DMAE: Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) is an incredible amino acid found naturally in foods. DMAE has proven to be a valuable and safe alternative for certain learning and behavior problems such as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and hyperkinesia (usually found in children but also known to affect adults).

In one study, conducted by Dr. Carl Pfeiffer of the Brain-Bio Center, 25 girls and 83 boys were studied. DMAE was found to result in enhanced behavior in 2/3 of the boys and 3/4 of the girls. Hyperactivity was greatly lessened as attention span was lengthened, irritability was decreased, scholastic ability improved, and, in some cases, IQ was elevated.

Another double-blind study supplemented 74 children who had learning disorders (many hyperactive) with 500 mg DMAE for 3 months. They were then tested for behaviour, reaction time, and put through a series of standard psychometric parameters. There was not only general improvement, but also performance improvement in the children with learning and behaviour disorders.

Other Supplements to Consider:
L-Tyrosine: As Livestrong reports, tyrosine is responsible for the production of the brain neurotransmitters norepinephrine, epinephrine and dopamine. Norepinephrine enables concentration. Epinephrine is better known as adrenaline; it provides extra blood to the brain and muscles, which also produces energy, especially in times of stress. Dopamine provides the mental tools needed to deal with daily stresses.

GABA: GABA is found throughout the central nervous system (CNS), assuming an ever-enlarging role as a significant influence for pain, stress, anxiety, depression as well as stress-induced illness. Before January 1995, there were over 2000 documents and texts on GABA, describing how it affects anxiety/stress in the brain and CNS.

Neurotransmitter Support: Neurotransmitter Support is a feast for brains in need of restoration, providing the optimum combination to facilitate the transport of vital nutrients into brain cells, and assist in re-establishment of neuronal function. And it’s a healthy snack for an aging brain, as well, giving it all the essentials necessary to support our mood, memory, and cognitive abilities, which tend to slow down as the years pass by.

Liquid Melatonin: Having trouble adjusting to the new fall sleep schedule? Try our Melatonin! Melatonin is non-addictive, and does not cause nightmares, and therefore is considered to be an ideal sleep-inducing aid. Life Choice uses the purest source of Melatonin in the world. Sweet Dreams Liquid Melatonin gives you the option of taking a pleasant, minty-fresh liquid instead of capsules, with the same effectiveness and superior ingredients.

Colloidal Silver: Available in either a long-lasting 250 ml or a highly portable 50 ml size, this is the perfect product to keep germs at bay. Colloidal Silver Homeopathic Oral Spray combines two technologies to deliver the effective anti-bacterial qualities of silver ions in a safe, easy-to-take spray mist. Plus, because the product is homeopathic, it works gently with your body.
