Do you dread going to the gym for what feels like hours at a stretch? Or do you avoid working out altogether because you just don't have the time? Then what I'm about to tell you should be music to your ears: sometimes when it comes to exercise, less is more.
It's becoming increasingly clear that too much exercise, particularly long bouts of cardio, can cause more harm than good.
And while most Americans would be well served to exercise more, there's probably no need to work out for more than 45 minutes or so at a time, as long as you exercise correctly and efficiently. In fact, one of the most effective exercises I know of takes just 20 minutes for the whole workout (I'll explain more below)... Read more
Hate exercise? Joseph Mercola reveals how to stay fit easily without the traditional boredom and drudgery.
Rob Riches goes downtown Los Angeles to present us another of his outdoor workout training plans. He works his biceps, abdominals and shoulders, and he sprints as he moves from one exercise to the other.
David Brownstein, MD. says 50,000 people die from taking a drug that should not be prescribed.
An article in JAMA (June 6, 2012, Vol. 307, No. 21, page 2247) states, “For years, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that target the…Cox-2 enzyme have been linked to increased cardiovascular risks. New research indicates that these elevated risks occur because COX-2 inhibitors suppress prostacyclin – a vasodilator and platelet inhibitor with heart protecting properties.”
This ‘new’ research has come much too late for the 50,000 who died and over 100,000 patients who suffered a stroke or a heart attack directly related to the use of a COX-2 inhibitor such as Vioxx or Celebrex.
However, simply looking at the mechanism of action of COX-2 inhibitors would lead anyone to predict that their use would be associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular problems including stroke and heart attack. Read more

Dr. Joseph Mercola reveals six ways to shrink your belly, and five of them don't involve exercise.
... If you're looking to shrink and tone your belly, there's a better way to do it than trying to do crunches. In fact, research has shown that doing abdominal exercises alone – even when performed five days a week for six weeks – has no effect at all on subcutaneous fat stores and abdominal circumference!
In an op-ed piece for Forbes magazine, Jennifer Cohen suggests using strategies that burn up cortisol insteadii. Cortisol is a hormone in your body that depletes lean muscle and holds on to fat in the abdominal region. Read more
1) Unhealthy Lifestyle
Drinking, smoking, and being overweight are known libido killers. Men need to stop smoking and cut down or quit drinking. You can't simply counteract these if you are doing them to excess.
If you are overweigh, your body simply does not function at its best. Energy levels and desire are low. The answer here is simple: eat less and exercise more. Cut out processed foods and substitute unrefined ones. If you need to lose a lot of weight, low-carb diets work. For exercise, you don't need to go to the gym for hours. Walking a half hour a day and doing a short calisthenics routine can make a big difference. This may sound too simple, but it works.
Stress is another libido killer but you can reduce its effects naturally. You can take two supplements that act as overall body tonics.They work to reduce stress and also increase blood circulation and nitric oxide production. The two supplements are Ginseng and Ginkgo, which have been used in Chinese medicine for centuries.
Another lesser known supplement is L Tyrosine This supports and assists neurotransmitters in the brain. When you are stressed or anxious, the availability of L-Tyrosine is depleted. L-Tyrosine helps reduce stress, improves mental agility, enhances mood, and helps boost sex drive as a result.
3) Low Nitric Oxide Levels
Many men with low libido immediately think it must be low testosterone, but this is seldom the case. Most men's testosterone levels are fine. Instead, you need to check to see if your nitric oxide levels are sufficient. Nitric oxide is critical in the erection process and if you don't have enough, you will simply not be able to get an erection. Nitric oxide naturally declines with age. The good news is you can boost it naturally and safely.
When a man has sexual feelings, the brain communicates these sexual thoughts through the nerves, and these are transmitted to the genitals. The nerves relax the muscle cells by the release of nitric oxide in the walls of the blood vessels entering the penis. This then allows an increase in blood to flow into the penis, resulting in an erection. If insufficient nitric oxide is produced, an erection cannot occur. If you want to boost nitric oxide levels simply take the amino acid L Argentine. In medical tests, 80% of men who took 2,800 mgs for just two weeks found the result was better erections and increased sexual satisfaction.
To a large degree, modern living is to blame for low male libido. We eat more processed foods take more drugs, and feel more stressed than our ancestors. By trying the above natural remedies, you can not only get an increase in male libido but also become healthier and happier at the same time.

It's about time we quit congratulating marathoners and triathletes and began pitying them instead. Excess exercise "hurts the heart" and cause dangerous long-term harm, say scientists. Of course, this is exactly what people used to think before the running boom of the 1970s. Short, intense activities, such as sprinting, are much better.
Extreme exercise such as marathons may permanently damage the heart and trigger rhythm abnormalities, warn researchers.
They say the safe ‘upper limit’ for heart health is a maximum of an hour a day - after which there is little benefit to the individual.
A review of research evidence by US physicians says intensive training schedules and extreme endurance competitions can cause long-term harm to people’s hearts. Read more
