"You have turned my life around"
 

I am 87 years old, with a problem of the prostate gland. Before I met Dr. Baum, I went to the bathroom every 30-60 minutes. After Dr. Baum's treatment on my prostate, I go only 5 times per day and only 1 time at night! You turned my life around. I am so very grateful!

-Sidney Daigle


I want to thank you for your due diligence. You saved my life. I highly recommend you!

-Dwight Bastian


Thank you Dr. Baum! Because of you I'm back in the "rodeo"!

-Gerald Wallace

Niacin can help men with symptoms of erectile dysfunction who have elevated cholesterol levels. Niacin which is found in chicken, fish, and grains, helps the body process fats while lowering cholesterol levels. Like the popular statin medications, which have also been shown to improve erectile dysfunction, niacin increases the blood flow throughout the body by opening arteries, potentially leading to healthier erections.

A study reported in the Journal of Sexual Medicine showed that 1500 mg dose of niacin in given to men with high cholesterol levels had a significant increase in their ability to engage in sexual intimacy with their partners. Even in men with severe erectile dysfunction saw even greater improvements in their sexual performance.

Since niacin has very few side effects and is relatively inexpensive, it may be a good alternative for men with erectile dysfunction with an elevated cholesterol levels.

Please don't interpret this study to suggest that treating erectile dysfunction can only be accomplished with niacin. Erectile dysfunction can be a precursor of heart disease and should be treated under a doctor's supervision.

Bottom line: Erectile dysfunction is a common condition affecting millions of American men. One cause of erectile dysfunction is high cholesterol levels which be impaired the blood supply to the penis. In some men this condition can be improved with oral niacin.

It doesn't matter if you're male or female, between the ages of 20-90, the
chances are if you're electronically connected, you will have received a message asking you if you want to last longer in bed or if you would like to have a longer more powerful erection.

It is estimated that one in ten men over the age of 35 has bought prescription medicines online. This certainly has an appeal to many men. It allows them to make the purchase cheaply sometimes at 1\3 of the cost of the drug from a pharmacy. The man can obtain the medication discreetly and with only the most rudimentary of health checks. But purchasing Viagra over the Internet doesn't come without risks. A recent report by Pfizer suggested 90 per cent of the drug bought this way is fake and may contain toxic ingredients such as rat poison and paint and paracetamol - which if unwittingly combined with paracetamol-based cold or headache remedies could cause liver failure. Also, drugs like Viagra are contraindicated with certain medications like nitroglycerin and can result in a fatal heart attack if a man takes Viagra, develops chest pain and then takes a nitroglycerin tablet. Remember the movie, "XXXX", when Jack Nicholson took both medications and ended up in the emergency room?

Bottom Line: You get what you pay for. Better and safer to get your medications from a reputable source and at the advice from your physician. There's no erection worth a heart attack!

I recently attended the American Urologic Society meeting in San Francisco, May 31-June 3, and I attended a program about male sexual dysfunction. I was pleasantly surprised to hear of a study that reported that men who exercised on a regular basis were better performers in the bedroom. Those men who exercised regularly had better erections and had sexual intimacy more frequently those men who led sedentary life styles. Even men who had moderate exercise, like take a brisk walk for 30 minutes four times a week were much less likely to have sexual dysfunction than those who were walkers. It was noteworthy that even moderate exercise such as yoga and walking were just as beneficial as strenuous exercise such as jogging and swimming.

The researches from Duke University suggested that exercise may increase blood flow through the penis, making it easier to get an erection. Also, working out may make men feel better about themselves and that in turn may improve sexual prowess.

Bottom Line: Men, you may just be able to keep that Viagra, Levitra, or Cialis tablet in the medicine cabinet if you started a regular exercise program. The best would be to take that walk with your partner as your relationship will also improve if you take time to be with each other on a regular basis.
