21 ways to spice up your sex life

Earlier this year I did a teleseminar on the topic of adding more spice to your sex life. I think it was well received but it’s hard to tell because I didn’t get any of the usual feedback emails telling me “That was great” and “More, please, Prof!” Now why do you suppose that is? I guess it’s because people are just shy. Yet I tried to inject some candour into it. I’m not shy myself and talked about lots of ways to enhance pleasure, including masturbation, clitoral rub, oral sex (it’s more hygienic than a kiss!), dressing to kill, toys, fantasies, intimate massage and sex in public places (for the real thrill seeker). I even threw in some erotic poetry! To learn more, click this link and go to the alternative doctor love and sex section But please don’t go there is you are easily...

doctor’s chocolate on Fox TV

I did a morning slot for Fox 4 TV in Florida a few days ago. It was aired Thursday Sept 4th I talked about the Doctor’s Chocolate. Tracey was a nice interviewer but she kept repeating the usual caveats "See your doctor" etc etc. Not once but 4- 5 times. She seemed to forget I’m a doctor and know a LOT more than the average MD 🙂 What’s the point of asking ignorant MDs, who wouldn’t understand nutrition if it bit them in the butt? Anyway, it stirred the sales of lots of bags of healthy chocolate. Go take a look: learn about The Doctor’s Chocolate, designed by me! It was a short segment, only about 10 minutes. If you start from the home page, you need to go to "Morning Blend" and scroll down the right-hand side till you see "The Doctor’s Chocolate" To order some, go to www.doctorkeithschocolate.com, not the link they give you on...

Spit and I can tell if you have cancer

An oral rinse could be used to detect certain types of head and neck carcinoma. Examination of cells from the oral cavity can detect hypermethylated genes in abnormal cells. Lead researcher Joseph Califano, MD, from Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, in Baltimore, Maryland, said a saliva test is a better bet than a blood test in these cases, because some head and neck cancers do not shed genetic material into the blood. A similar proposal, an oral rinse to detect head and neck cancer, was described last year by Elizabeth Franzmann, MD, from the University of Miami. That test was based on a protein biomarker but Dr. Franzmann and colleagues reported that combining that with a test for hypermethylation increased its accuracy. In the current study 211 patients with head and neck cancers were compared with 527 healthy individuals. Everyone took the saliva test, which involved using a stiff brush on the inside of the mouth and throat, and then rinsing and gargling with a salt solution. The resultant cell-laden saliva sample was then analyzed. The researchers identified 8 genes that were the best predictors of head and neck cancer, and then tested saliva with several different panels containing 3 to 5 genes. The accuracy for prediction of these cancers was between 91% and 97% accurate, depending on which actual genes were tested for. This is a sensational degree...

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....
