Erectile Dysfunction Happens to Most Men…Eventually

Erectile dysfunction in men has several causes. Regardless of the cause, the result is generally the same: a life-changing struggle. The psychological impact of allowing erectile dysfunction (ED) to define who you are can be devastating. Often ED occurs unexpectedly after a surgical procedure. More often, though, ‘Father Time’ or a chronic medical condition is the culprit.

By the time a man reaches age 40, a number of factors have impacted penile health and function. Men often notice a decrease in sensation and satisfaction, erectile strength and sustainability, and neurotransmission to the brain. He is experiencing a 54% decrease in the physical content of his organ. The collagen has begun breaking down and the elastin fibers have decreased as well. The smooth muscle within, as well as veins and arteries, are also affected. By the time he reaches age 60, the vast majority of function and sensation is completely lost. No wonder those very expensive little blue pills are sold like candy in this country!

High Risks in Resolving ED

When the subject of “procedural risks” associated with ED is raised, most people think of surgeries and daily self-injections. However, serious risks occur with non-surgical treatment as well. Have you ever considered that the majority of men consuming the Viagra-type pills are very often a high-risk group based on their age?  Some listed side effects of Viagra include warmth or redness in the face, neck, or chest; stuffy nose; headaches, diarrhea, and an inability to differentiate between the colors green and blue; Loss of hearing, ringing in the ears; chest pain or heavy feeling, pain spreading to the arm or shoulder, nausea, sweating, general ill feeling; irregular heartbeat; swelling in your hands, ankles, or feet; shortness of breath; vision changes; feeling light-headed, fainting; or penis erection that is painful or lasts 4 hours or longer. Older men are at higher risk for many conditions. Adding a potentially harmful medication to the list of his daily meds may be riskier than a surgery.

Sadly, pharmaceutical companies are not interested in low-risk treatments if they cannot turn a big profit. This limits safe options for men with ED. Fortunately, there exists a very low-risk, non-invasive procedure that involves no drugs or scalpels. Drug companies can never turn a profit on this treatment because it involves your own blood product.

PRP Resolves ED

Platelet-Rich Plasma sounds pretty impressive. When you look closely, you’ll understand why.

Platelet-Rich Plasma, otherwise known as PRP, is simply your processed blood. The red blood cells and white blood cells are removed. What is left is plasma filled with many hundred growth factors. When re-injected into the body, these growth factors trigger our stem cells to go to work. Stem cells can be found in the fat, muscle or bone of adults. When called upon, stem cells function and structurally regenerate damaged or affected tissue, depending on the messages they gather. When a stem cell splits, both halves either remain a stem cell or become a more specific type of cell. For example, it might become cells of bone, cartilage, muscle, nerves, blood vessels, or brain. We believe these cells then release any number of molecular mediators. These mediators tell the targeted area exactly what to do. In this case, they tell the cells to begin a regenerative or healing reaction to disease or injury. The stem cells can rebuild damaged or non-functioning blood vessels, reverse the scars from self injections, rejuvenate injured nerves, restore nitric oxide receptors. The sole purpose of PRP therapy for the penis is to restore youthful erections and sexual satisfaction. The procedure that best achieves this is the POW Shot™.

When PRP is given the chance to rejuvenate the male sexual organ, it can promote the regeneration of injured cavernous nerve and the recovery of erectile function. When men have experienced lower amounts of oxygen inside cells because of diabetes, sleep apnea, or smoking, every organ of their body ages dramatically. The penis is no exception. Fortunately, several animal studies show that PRP facilitates nerve regeneration and overall recovery of erectile function. PRP rejuvenates the vascular system, thereby increasing oxygen and nutrients, pushing back the hands of time within this organ. Some have raised questions regarding whether or not cancer patients are good candidates for PRP therapy. In March of 2014, a research study (Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 2014 Mar 26. pii: S0006-291X(14)00523-3. doi: 10.1016/j.bbrc.2014.03.080) showed how autologous stem cells from fat cells actually slow and discourage prostate cancer cell proliferation.  This study shows that PRP not only rejuvenates, it protects us!

With fresh, new tissue and capillaries, the neurological wiring is restored. When this happens, the sensation and pleasure in this organ resembles that of a much younger man. In fact, one patient reports, “It feels like it did when I was 20!” Stronger and longer orgasms are commonplace after PRP. This kind of change takes time. Many patients, however, are aware of improvements within days of the receiving PRP. Numerous studies indicate that with time, PRP continues to improve and strengthen the health of tissue, including innervation. This factor alone increase overall sexual satisfaction. It’s a safe, healthy solution for men’s aging sexual organ.

The POW-Shot™ Transforms Dysfunction into Satisfaction

Every day, medicine is making great advances in understand new uses for PRP.  Men have been taught to self-inject various medications into penile tissue over the years. Nothing before has restored function and rejuvenated the tissue though. Using PRP to improve sexual function is one of its newer applications. This procedure is called the POW Shot™.

You quite possibly have found other providers, not necessarily MD’s, performing procedures involving PRP penile injections. Their procedure goes by any number of names. Truthfully, these providers pay monthly fees for their name to be actively listed on a website as a penile injection provider in hopes of attracting interested candidates. They’ve typically received a limited 10-minute instruction from someone with a few months experience with the procedure. Nothing more. They can’t tell you why PRP does what it does or how it works exactly. They may not be able to tell you the difference between Platelet-Rich Plasma and Platelet-Poor Plasma. Their website information regarding this procedure quite possibly is a word-for-word, exact duplicate of dozens of other similar websites. They aren’t actively doing any research to improve the procedure, protocols or patient outcomes. Patients are quickly herded through a factory-like system. They may even go as far as outsourcing the processing of your blood because they lack the correct equipment, thereby increasing the risk of errors. This is not high-quality health care. This part of your life is very important so demand the POW Shot™ as the best process available in Middle Tennessee to help rejuvenate function.

To be sure, assumptions can be very misleading. In the U.S., one MD takes sole credit for pioneering a PRP therapy for ED. When you do a little digging, other physicians also take credit for being on the scene in the early development phase of this procedure. Clearly, physicians have been injecting and teaching men to self inject medications for ED long before PRP. Much time and energy seem to be wasted on talking about being “first,” while little has been invested on technique backed by scientific research.

Here’s the major differences between the Pow Shot™ and other procedures which inject PRP into the penis. Using advanced techniques, the correct amount of PRP, with perfected processing, using a proven post-procedure protocol is critical to great outcomes. Just because one claims to be first does not mean his methods are the best. When it comes to your health and wellness, these are things you’ll want to explore. After you do so, you’ll learn that the POW Shot™ is a far superior procedure for meeting your needs.

PRP Therapy: 90 Minutes to Restore Wellness via the POW Shot™

This is probably not the easiest thing for you to talk about. You’re probably not looking forward to the journey, but the destination you anticipate is worth it. The destination is motivating you to proceed. Just know about 3/4 of the total procedure time we allot for the POW Shot™ is spent making you comfortable. The procedure itself happens so quickly, it’s over before you even realize. So, our goal is to help you experience your desired improvement and rejuvenation while making you comfortable along the way.

Here’s what PRP Therapy via the POW Shot™ looks like: You’ll arrive at our procedural suite. We’ll ask you to answer relative questions concerning your health and primary concerns. Then, you’ll complete or update your medical history and ask questions about the procedure and the risks. Once satisfied, you’ll complete informed consents. Then, you’ll receive a topical numbing agent in preparation for the therapy treatment. This is followed by having your blood drawn and carefully processed into PRP while you wait. Relax in private accommodations while waiting for the topical anesthetic to do it’s job, making you comfortable. Next, you’ll receive the life-changing POW Shot™ procedure, taking less than 5 minutes to complete. We’ll discuss post-procedure instructions and how you can get the most gain from your treatment. Finally, just anticipate a long-needed rejuvenation.

We’re currently conducting research to learn how long the benefits of the POW Shot™ last, on the average. No one has looked at this, but it’s a very common question among our patients. When you look at PRP in other treatment areas, rejuvenated tissue is younger. So, it’s a given that it takes time for your body to “age” in a rejuvenated treatment area. Joints take more abuse so it also makes sense that the rejuvenation may not last as long here. We want to know how long our patients will enjoy the benefits. If you would like to be consider as a research candidate and participate in follow-up surveys, let us know. Just for participating, you’ll receive a significant savings on the POW Shot.™  Give us a call today to be considered for Phase 1 of this trial: 615.645.5476.

PRP: What is Protein-Rich Plasma

For centuries, like PRP, medicine came from nature. When you look at one the most beautiful flowers called foxglove, it’s known by another named called digitalis. In looking at this incredible plant, you wouldn’t think that it’s saved millions of lives and done so much good.

PRP or Protein-Rich Plasma is something that is a natural product that is created inside humans. For over 2 decades, man has used it in a variety of ways to help save lives and improve lives. Using this completely natural, non-drug, man has been able to fight off dangerous infections, help decrease pain, restore function of damaged body parts, and regrow hair.

Many research studies have been done on the actual benefits that PRP has on damaged body parts. Here’s one that is down-right facinating: All Natural PRP and It’s Benefit. We’re using PRP in multiple applications to increase the blood supply to target areas. Doing so increases the oxygen and nutrients to these areas. The growth factors in the PRP calls the body’s own stem cells found in places like our skin and bone to the target area as well. Overall, rejuvenation of the body begins happening in as little as 5 days and continues for a year.

PRP Hair Restoration

Let’s look at men and women who are thinning or losing hair on top. There are many theories as to why this happens. Some doctors simply want to blame their genetics because they see bald men and women in their family tree. Is it genetics that their hair begins falling our or is it genetics that the blood supply begins shriveling up and disappearing? No blood supply equals no nutrients or oxygen to the bulb of follicles.

Regardless of the true cause, PRP takes the least invasive and most natural approach to remedying the problem. With PRP Hair Restoration, we simply process your own blood in our in-house lab. We separate the red blood cells and white blood cells and utilize the plasma to do incredible things over time.

With PRP Hair Restoration, the plasma is loaded with many different growth factors. When gently placed back into the scalp with the tiniest needle, those growth factors are activated. When we look 2 or 3 months down the road, it’s triggered a cascade effect. The blood highway has been reestablished. Fresh oxygen and nutrients awaken the dormant and starving follicles to come alive with thickened, growing hair. There’s no moving hair from one place to another surgically!

Will PRP Hair Restoration Work for YOU?

There is only one way to know if PRP hair restoration will work for you. Give it a try! We offer an extremely affordable mini trial. We select an area on the scalp where at least some follicles are still present and growing. We take pictures of the numbers of hair there. Then we numb the scalp for your comfort. If you are pleased with your new hair growth, make an appointment and we can analyze the pictures to see what kind of difference the PRP has made. The cost of the mini trial does not cover the expense of this procedure. We offer it to you only to give you peace of mind before diving into yet another painful and expensive treatment that fails to meet your expectations.

PRP Research Studies

Qualifying candidates may be interested in participating in our research studies involving PRP hair restoration. Those who do qualify will receive PRP treatments at a significant discount while helping to refine this science to become the most effective and inexpensive way to regrow thinning hair!

Frequent Urination & Female “Dis-Interest” Issues Fixed with One Injection of the WOW-Shot

Are you are one of the 20 million U.S. women suffering? Looking for the best cure for frequent urination or urinary stress incontinence? Ever heard of the WOW-Shot™? The WOW-Shot can dramatically increase libido, decrease painful intercourse and strengthen marriages. Lacking interest? Need a “little pink pill?” Sound like a solution for you? Then you’ll definitely want to learn more about this one-shot WOW-Wonder!

Traditionally, there has never been an effective single-shot cure for frequent urination and stress incontinence. They typically involve a list of side effects and serious procedure risk…that is, until now.

“Patching Up” the Pro Athlete

Have you ever stopped to wonder about professional athletes? How do they sustain pretty serious injuries to joints and ligaments, but can return to the field in a week or a month without surgery? The answer happens to be the same answer for a Leaking Bladder: P.R.P. or Platelet-Rich Plasma.

How PRP and the WOW-Shot Works

Here’s how PRP works in orthopedic  injuries: A tube of the patient’s/athlete’s blood is drawn. It’s spun until the red blood cells separate from the plasma. The plasma is what holds all the “really good stuff” including growth factors. Your own plasma is drawn up and mixed with a little calcium. Because something is being injected back into the body, this is an FDA regulated and approved procedure. Plasma + Calcium: These are the ONLY two things that are returned into your body. None the less, it achieves some pretty amazing results to injured areas.

Calcium’s Role in Healing Our Body

Calcium does a few things inside the PRP treatment:

  • It thickens your plasma, and causes it to stick and stay put in the targeted area of the body (place of injury).
  • It also triggers your body to go into a “repair” mode. How? Normally, sodium levels are higher in the blood than calcium levels. When the body sustains an injury, calcium is released from the injured area. This calcium sends signals to your platelets that there’s been an injury.
  • An amazing multi-step cascade occurs. This sends your body into a protective mode over the site of injury. The site of injury is “walled-off.”
  • The platelets then release growth factors in your body.
  • After this happens, these growth factors stimulate stem cells to replicate/grow new, healthy tissue.
  • Regardless of your age, the body is sent into a repair mode. Sha-Zam! Healing begins to happen, often very rapidly.

Standard Treatment Options for Frequent Urination and Stress Incontinence

  1. When it comes to a Frequent Urination in women, most physicians begin with “behavior management.”  They tell women to empty their bladder hourly. Often, they’ll keep them in a state of dehydration if they are unable to urinate this frequently. Dehydration creates problems with memory, digestion, appetite suppression, and urinary tract infections.
  2. The next step is usually medication in the drug class of anti-cholinergics. They affect the ability to think. For an older woman dealing with memory issues, it often worsens the condition. So a woman with a fading memory suddenly shows signs of worsening dementia! But, at least she’s not urinating on the floor!? Nice trade off, huh?
  3. Next is surgery. Some women have a prolapsed bladder and truly do need surgery. Others, however, have a less severe condition. Surgery can cause urinary obstruction as well as infection. This not ideal for younger women still planning to have children.
  4. Finally, there is the family of injections with even more side effects than surgery. The drugs used can crystallize & cause granulomas which need to be surgically removed. Nearly half the women having this procedure have urinary obstruction. About 1 in 20 are not cured. It is an extremely painful procedure.

P.R.P. for Women

 

Approximately 50 million women in the U.S. suffer with sexual dysfunction. This is in addition to the 20 million suffering with a leaking bladder and frequent urination. These are pretty big numbers!

So, just over 3 years ago, Dr. Charles Runels had a theory of applying PRP to heal women with some very specific problems. In his medical practice, he came across women who experienced extremely painful intercourse. This often followed the trauma of delivering a very large baby vaginally, or even from physical abuse. There was no effective course of treatment or help for these women. Another part of his patient population was women who could just never enjoy an intimate sexual relationship. Finally, a large part of his patient population suffered from a leaking bladder and frequent urination.

The benefits of sex have been well-established. Regular sex can boost your immune system, decrease pain, and improve your mood. Unfortunately, most physicians are too busy to even address sexual satisfaction issues on annual wellness exams AND most women are to uncomfortable to mention it to their health practitioner.

Here’s what happened: Dr. Runels injected a woman with her own natural plasma into two target areas of her pelvis area. The results were more astonishing than he had even hoped they would be!

The WOW-shot is an all-natural, non-surgical treatment that’s been proven to rejuvenate and revitalize vaginal and clitoral cells and their function. The body calls your own stem cells to the treatment area an increases the blood supply including oxygen and nutrients. It effectively enhances a woman’s sex drive, resulting in stronger orgasms as well as a treatment for leaking bladders or urinary stress incontinence.

The PRP does two specific things:

  1. It promotes healing to a woman’s clitoris (which is actually 5” long beneath the skin…far larger than the “hood” one might see on self inspection.)
  2. The second thing PRP does is promotes healing to the urethra and portions of the urinary tract responsible for a leaking, frequent urination and “dribbling” that occurs with coughing, sneezing, walking, standing or exercise.

One single shot of a woman’s own plasma, mixed with a tiny amount of calcium, does this: It provides a woman an effective and adequate treatment like nothing before.

Sadly, the number one reason women are forced into nursing homes is for urinating on the floor. According to Dr. Runels,  families will keep

grandmother home with them, even in a frail state, even with dementia; but when she can’t hold her urine, the volume of work increases to a point where the family can no longer care for her. Women who were becoming burdens to their families can now even live independently for a longer time. There is less fear of middle-of-the-night trips to the bathroom, with devastating hip-breaking falls. Women can remain more social and experience fewer feelings of isolation without these physical restriction. One injection is changing the quality of life for women across the world.

Also, this one shot of a woman’s own plasma is allowing a woman who, perhaps, never has experienced an orgasm in her life, or rarely enjoyed an intimate relationship inside a marriage of 20+ years, to have a new awakening. Women are experiencing the greatest intimacy of their lives with stronger, longer, and/or multiple orgasms with faster climax. Those who had a decreased interest in sex as they once had in younger years are suddenly experiencing a life change!

The Monetary Costs of Urinary Stress Incontinence and Frequent Urination in Women

The average cost of a leaking bladder is $2005 (based on a 2005 study). Women spend money on daily medication, MD office visits, and urinary pad/supplies to stay abreast of the problem. This doesn’t include the costs of extra laundry and dry cleaning. It also doesn’t include the time involvement with “clean up” of the accidents. That dollar amount places no value on the psychological impact or physical issues surrounding a normal lifestyle (work, recreation, home life) of “accidents.”

How Long Does the WOW-Shot Work?

The WOW-Shot seems to be effective for 1-2 years. In some cases with a leaking bladder, it’s lasting even longer. The cost analysis, just on dollars and cents, indicates it’s really a no-brainer. One shot can save $2500+ in medical costs and supplies, and scheduled trips to the doctor. Additionally, there is no longer a psychological impact or physical nuisances of a life disrupted. Md’s are reporting decreases in incontinence, depression, anxiety, fatigue, dyspareunia and increased libido, arousal and orgasms in their patients, usually within 3 months of the shot.

What About the Side-Effects?

Among the thousands to have had the WOW-Shot, there have been no, that’s zero, reported adverse reactions. Why? Probably because PRP is simply relocating a substance found naturally in a woman’s body to trigger healing. 90% are cured of a leaking bladder with one procedure. One simple injection is creating significant improvement in the lives of women across the world.

Who Can Administer the WOW-Shot?

Every woman is different and the only person who can evaluate her needs is a highly-trained physician. Women cannot go to any doctor to receive this treatment. Sometimes, it’s a nurse or physician’s assistant administering this procedure. Locally, it might even be an eye doctor! We advise that you ONLY go to individuals who are individually-certified and trained MDs in the WOW-Shot.  This allows expert evaluation and treatment of these common gynecological problems, as well as the promise of excellent standards of care.

Dr. Jeffrey Lodge has been certified and trained in the administration of the WOW-Shot. He is a board-certified gynecologist who has been successfully treating women from across the Middle Tennessee area for a leaking bladder and those with problems with libido and sexual dysfunction.
