Power Up with Brain Exercises

Power Up with Brain ExercisesBy Dr. Mao

Just like your muscles, your brain becomes stronger with exercise that boosts your brainpower and clears away mental "fog." Your everyday mental tasks are akin to taking a daily walk, they help keep your brain functioning, but how about giving your brain a real workout?

Use Your Non-dominant Hand
Performing everyday activities with your non-dominant hand can power-up your brain. If you're right-handed, switch hands and try using your left hand to eat, drink, comb your hair, and brush your teeth. More...

Menstrual Migraines

Menstrual MigrainesBy Albert Vaca, L.Ac.

Ask Dr. MaoQ: I have been diagnosed with a large prostrate. What can I do to help this condition?

A: As men age, we become increasingly aware of health issues that are specific to us, stemming from that walnut-sized gland located under the bladder: the prostate. It can become infected and inflamed, causing prostatitis; increase in size, causing benign prostatic hyperplasia; and/or it can become cancerous. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among American men. It affects one in nine men, and the average age of diagnosis is 66 years old. It is commonly understood that even if a man is not diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime, he will die with it to a greater or lesser degree (it just may not be the cause of his death).

While the best route to treating cancer lies in its prevention, this still leaves the question of how to treat it, or prevent its recurrence, after it has been discovered.
