Hot and hasty sex

How Long Should Sex Last? Good question. Let’s avoid the answer “As long as possible”. Size doesn’t always matter and time doesn’t always matter. The real criterion, surely, is “How good was it?” Many couples will attest that 3- 4 minutes of passion aflame is better than 30- 60 minutes of  “Yeah Yeah!” In fact surveyed results suggest that people are pretty realistic and 3-7 minutes is deemed "acceptable" and 7- 13 minutes dubbed "desirable." This result came from a survey with 34 sex therapists in the U.S. and Canada completed the survey. They had 26 years of clinical experience, on average; 45% of them were men. The researchers considered that the public had "unrealistic" expectations for sexual performance to last longer. I’m not sure that’s true. Also a survey of what other people think isn’t necessarily relevant to what you and your partner think. But if you’ve picked up the idea that hours and hours of orgasmic indulgence is what you should be aiming for, then maybe you’ve bought into a myth! I’ve been lucky enough to adventure with many women, of many ages, and I always thought they considered the violence and intensity of passion when they came was more important than protracted messing about! I may have been right. SOURCE: Corty, E. The Journal of Sexual Medicine, May...

Super foods? There are no super foods…

There’s been a lot of talk about so-called “super foods” lately. It’s a buzzword for something that is supposed to be good for you to eat. Even Mark Victor Hansen, the “Chicken Soup” guy sent out an email yesterday, touting supposed super foods. Steven Pratt wrote a best-selling book called “Super Foods” (it became a best-seller because he was on Oprah, even though it is inaccurate and misleading). What all these self-appointed nutritional experts overlook is that any food can make a percentage of the population sick, sometimes very sick indeed. For instance Pratt recommends oats and tomato. He did all his research using Google on the Internet, that much is clear. Because if he’d had any meaningful real life experience with actual patients he would know these are a BAD choice. Oats is a gluten food and a staggering percentage of the US population are now allergic to gluten. Duh! (the other main gluten foods are wheat, rye and barley) Tomato belongs to the nightshade family, a very toxic group of foods, including potato, tobacco, chillies, peppers and eggplant. This group take their name from Belladonna, the deadly nightshade plant. There are instances of sickness and death among animals and humans from eating plants in this “food family”, including the humble tomato. Duh! In fact potato, tomato and the other nightshades are particularly troublesome for people with arthritis....

Surprising ways that foods can really hurt you

Last night I did a teleclass for Hilton Johnson. This was its title. From that you will see that it’s serious stuff! In fact I quoted several moving stories of people from my casebook who had been BADLY hurt by foods. Not just bellyache but being imprisoned in their own bodies, unable to express themselves and learn language. One woman discovered herself at the age of 39: she just woke up one day and "I realized that I was there" (her own words). Can you imagine how awful it must be to be "born" at the age of 39 years? She had been unable to read or write or cross the road safely. She couldn’t handle money and was a danger to herself in the kitchen. But she was rescued entirely by my discovery that a single unsuspected food allergy was the call of all her misery. But she was far from my only staggering case, sadly. It’s true that foods can REALLY hurt you. Listen to the teleclass recording here: diet wise (while you are there, consider signing up for my free teleseminars) Better still, get my book "Diet Wise". It’s probably the best $20 health investment you can make. It turns existing diet theory and teaching on its head....

What lies beyond the popcorn cell phone hoax?

Here’s the truth about cell phones, a lot of researched references. Never mind the popcorn gag. Don’t let the fact that this was a hoax lull you into believing that cell phones are safe. Maybe the power sellers and Wi-Fi companies arranged the hoax, to distract from the very real problems we are facing. What problems? I’ve posted a whole page of stuff on this topic AND BARELY TOUCHED THE SURFACE OF EXISTING SCIENCE STUDIES SHOWING CELL PHONES, WI-FI AND MICROWAVE RADIATION IS DANGEROUS. This is for real. cell phones as bad as chest...

15 minutes could save you 15- 22 lbs and 4 inches off the waist

It’s not often you’ll find me recommending a weight loss product. The best way to lose weight is eat differently, as you know! But it can be difficult to eat the way you want. I’m away from home constantly and it isn’t always easy, I understand that. Now science has come to the rescue with an amazing and different product. It’s a leptin-sparer. By that I mean that your body will respond to LESS leptin. Feelings of satiety that we like to call feeling "full" come from leptin. So logically, you would think more is better. But no. It’s like insulin. Insulin spares blood sugar and keeps it down. But when things go wrong, as in diabetes, the body stops listening to it. Despite climbing blood sugar, insulin levels rise significantly. We call this "insulin resistance" and it’s big trouble. Recovery starts when the body begins to listen to the insulin message. At that time insulin levels FALL. Well, overweight and obese people are kind of "leptin resistant". So when the leptin signal starts getting through at last, the person eats less, feeling more readily satisfied. At that time, leptin levels FALL (just like the insulin example). That’s what I meant by a leptin-sparer. It’s not a scientific term, just something I made up for this blog! A breakthrough clinical trial carried out at the University of  Connecticut showed...
