THE DOCTOR IS IN… by dr. John j. pierce, do, acoep, abaarm A HOLISTIC GUIDE TO A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE In our fast-paced, modern world, busy schedules are the norm for patients and doctors alike. This often leads to rushed and incomplete doctor’s appointments, many times that are only five or 10 minutes long. However, more in-depth patient examinations are crucial not only to proper treatment and results, but also to prevent future health issues. By utilizing a holistic approach to wellness, physicians must complete a comprehensive patient assessment and consider the whole body in an effort to achieve optimal health, serving the ultimate goal of a balanced lifestyle. Wellness Expert Dr. John Pierce of Ageless Forever discusses how an integrative approach to medicine can lead to better results and healthier patients.   “When assessing a patient’s needs, it’s critical to take a comprehensive look at their physical wellbeing,” says Dr. Pierce. “When examining patients, physicians should be looking at not only the problem area, but anything that may be a contributing factor. Proper nutrition, exercise and a balance of hormones are all imperative to an integrative approach to wellness.”   At Ageless Forever, Dr. Pierce creates individual patient plans based on the specific characteristics and symptoms of each patient. By doing so, patients receive better results and treatment that is tailored to their needs, rather than a uniform treatment plan. Dr. Pierce specializes in providing age management programs that guide patients’ lifestyles and leads to increased longevity and better a quality of life.   “By guiding patients through individualized wellness plans, we create a better balance and allow patients to enjoy a quality of life they would otherwise not have been able to achieve,” continues Dr. Pierce. “Our patients see great results because we combine nutritional supplementation, hormone balancing and guidelines for diet and exercise that create a comprehensive and preventative approach to health.”   Dr. John J.

YOUNG MEN’S NEW PARTY DRUG Harrietsugarcookie.com conducted a survey erectile dysfunction drug use in men and found an alarming number of young men are using drugs like Viagra and Cialis recreationally. In fact, a majority of young users do not suffer from erectile dysfunction, but instead, use it as a party drug. It is perfectly fine to use erectile dysfunction pills if you suffer from ED. Men that use the pills twice or more a week, however, tend to get them with a doctor’s prescription. In the Harrietsugarcookie.com survey, less than 50% of men claimed to get their ED pills prescribed by a doctor, 8.2% admit to pretending to their doctor that they have erectile dysfunction, with 20% of men confessing to buying the pills online and 16% admitting to buying the pills from drug dealers. SO, WHY ARE YOUNG MEN USING ED PILLS? They consider it just another party drug to use when out drinking and partying on molly or cocaine, which tend to cause erectile dysfunction. Viagra and Cialis also give them a long-lasting erection and allows them to get an erection after orgasm quicker. But users can become dependent on the pills and physiologically grow to depend on them for erections, and using them for this reason can create performance anxiety. Pills bought through other channels can be counterfeit, and in some countries, buying them online is illegal. Doctors also check for high blood pressure, liver problems and kidney problems. Long-term misuse of the drug can actually cause erectile dysfunction in men who hadn’t previously suffered from it.
