Few things are guaranteed in life, but there is one thing that you can count on for sure: as time goes on, your body is going to age. While most men in their late teens through their twenties might feel invincible, it's only a matter of time before age starts to play a role in everyday life. Injuries take longer to recover from, hangovers take longer to dissipate, aches and pains become a normal part of life, and intimate time with your partner can be compromised. If you have experienced any of the symptoms above, don't worry - it's completely normal to slow down as you get older.
The question is, what are you going to do about the aging process? For years, men were told to just "live with it," but in 2021, those days are over. The time to fight back is here, and there has never been a better opportunity to live your best life than now. Nobody understands the effects that aging can have on men but our team of professionals at Better Life do. That is why we invest all of our time developing innovative, effective men's health solutions: to give men a chance to change their future and live like they did while they were in their prime. If you're ready to take a stand against ED and live a more energetic, youthful life, know that you're not alone. At Better Life Carolinas, we are here to help by providing the most scientifically advanced treatments on the market today.
When it comes to men's health, the topic of sex can still feel taboo, especially when there are performance issues involved. At Better Life Carolinas, we have heard just about every story you can imagine regarding erectile dysfunction or ED. So if you're embarrassed and angry about your performance in the bedroom, we understand how you're feeling. In the past, men had to take strange drugs or sign off on expensive surgeries to help correct their ED, adding to their feelings of shame and hopelessness.
The good news? If you're a man dealing with ED, you don't have to settle for antiquated treatments like those referenced above. There's a new product on the block: a revolutionary, non-invasive treatment that is the first of it's kind. It's called GAINSWave®, and you can bet your bottom dollar that it isn't like anything else you have tried before.
Unlike most ED treatments, this unique approach does not require drugs or surgery. Instead, it relies on high-frequency acoustic waves to open the penis's existing blood vessels, encouraging the growth of new blood vessels while eliminating micro-plaque. To put it simply, GAINSWave® increases blood flow and gives you a chance to reclaim your libido and live life like a man in his prime.
GAINSWave® isn't a sketchy, quick-fix pill found behind the glass at a gas station. It is a comprehensive erectile dysfunction treatment with an incredible 76% success rate. With virtually no side effects, it's no wonder that men throughout the Carolinas and across the United States trust GAINSWave® to solve their ED and Peyronie's disease problems.
It might sound like GAINSWave® is too good to be true, but the fact is this kind of erectile dysfunction treatment in Belmont, NC uses scientifically-backed, time-tested technologies and applications to improve male sexual performance. Technically referred to as Low-Intensity Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (LI-ESWT), our GAINSWave® procedure goes right to the crux of the issue. Low-intensity sound waves break up plaque formation in your penis while stimulating new blood vessel growth. These new blood vessels help get more blood to your penis, ultimately improving your ability to perform. This incredible treatment not only increases blood flow - it also causes new nerve tissues to grow, making your penis more sensitive and easily stimulated.
It all happens through a process called neurogenesis, which increases penis sensitivity. What sets GAINSWave® apart from others is the use of low-intensity sound waves to achieve increased blood flow and sensitivity. Because this procedure is completely non-invasive, you won't ever have to worry about expensive insurance claims or unsightly scarring. All you have to worry about is enjoying life like you used to, without having to undergo surgery or putting harmful substances in your body.
Here are some quick facts about Better Life Carolinas GAINSWave® treatments:
If you have ever wondered why GAINSWave® treatments are so popular with men, the answer is simple. Prescription drugs meant to help ED often come with side effects that can diminish your peace of mind and day-to-day life. While some men swear by the "little blue pill," many guys aren't aware of the hidden risks associated with drugs like Viagra. The following ailments can happen both in the short term and long term:
If you are having problems with erectile dysfunction, you should understand why it's happening. The primary cause of ED is associated with a lack of blood flow to the penis, making erections difficult to get and maintain. Rather than relying on a prescription pill for a quick fix, many men are using GAINSWave® treatment in Belmont, NC for a natural solution with no ill side effects. ED doesn't have to be your "new normal," and neither does suffering from strange side effects from popping too many "little blue pills."
The global COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound effect on the world. Over the last year, millions of Americans have had to change their lifestyles and alter daily routines to better protect themselves and their loved ones from the virus. While COVID-19 causes a litany of negative side effects, new research shows that men who contract the virus can triple their risk of developing erectile dysfunction. Because the human body is unfamiliar with this kind of virus, it responds by sending a large immune response. During this process, the body uses massive amounts of chemicals to eliminate the virus, causing horrible collateral damage in the form of cell destruction and inflammation.
Contracting COVID-19 and suffering from ED at the same time might sound like a death sentence. However, if you are a man experiencing ED during or after contracting the COVID-19 virus, don't lose hope.
Clinical trials have shown that shockwave therapy, better known as GAINSWave®, has been shown to lower inflammation and boost vascularity by creating angiogenesis and improving endothelial function. Simply put, GAINSWave® treatments can help reverse symptoms of ED brought on by COVID-19. To learn more about how GAINSWave® can help you get back to a normal sex life after developing COVID-19, we recommend contacting our office today.
Though Peyronie's Disease affects about 9% of men, it is a little-known disease that can cause physical and aesthetic issues. It is characterized by fibrous scar tissue, which forms underneath the surface of a man's penis. When this disease is left untreated or treated improperly, it can be very difficult for men to have a normal erection. This is because Peyronie's Disease can cause painful curvatures in the penis, making it nearly impossible for afflicted men to have sexual intercourse at all.
The cause of Peyronie's Disease is currently unknown. However, most cases stem from physical trauma like acute injuries after vigorous sex. Other causes include prostate surgery, autoimmune disorders, and family history. Unfortunately, traditional treatment options range from a "wait and see" approach to prescription drugs and even surgery.
Symptoms and signs of Peyronie's Disease include:
Fortunately, for men who are looking for a non-invasive, natural erectile dysfunction treatment in Belmont, NC GAINSWave® is the answer. Using low-strength soundwaves or shockwaves, GAINSWave® treatment in Belmont breaks down scar tissue affecting your penis, helps create new blood vessels, and opens up existing ones. As a result, blood flow is increased, which minimizes penis curvature and fixes the problems associated with erectile dysfunction.
Most guys will tell you that their penis is the most important part of their body. While that is not totally true from a physiological perspective, we get where they're coming from - after all, a man's penis plays a big role in his personal life and overall wellbeing. When a man has problems achieving and maintaining an erection, his quality of life can suffer dramatically, resulting in lower self-esteem and even depression. If you are a man and suffering from ED or Peyronie's Disease, you can rest easy knowing help is only a phone call away.
In addition to GAINSWave® treatments, Better Life Carolinas also offers the Priapus Shot or P-Shot® for short. Originally used to treat wounds and sports injuries, our P-Shot® is an all-natural treatment that fortifies your body through cellular repair and rejuvenation. P-Shot® treatments have shown very promising results for men who have suffered from prostate cancer, enlarged prostates, the side effects of surgery, drug side effects from prescription pain killers, and even diabetes.
You might be asking yourself, "How does the P-Shot® work?"
This ED solution works by using platelet-rich plasma or PRP from your own body. The proteins and growth factors released by the large number of platelets activate your stem cells, which begins cellular regeneration and repair wherever the PRP are used in your body. Tissue repair in your penis is further aided by the formation of new blood vessels and collagen production.
In many cases, men who use the P-Shot® to correct erectile dysfunction or the effects of Peyronie's Disease can resume sexual activity a few hours after the treatment is applied.
Benefits of Better Life Carolinas' P-Shot® include:

The level of respect and collaboration between the health system and these exceptional groups is anchored in a commitment to put patients first.

This Center will allow us to offer all the patient benefits of modern ambulatory surgery centers without the hassles of multicenter systems and big city travel.”
Ranjan S. Maitra, MD – Orthopedic Surgeon, OrthoCarolina:
“OrthoCarolina is committed to helping our patients receive best in class care and affordable surgery options close to home. We look forward to continuing to work hand-in-hand with our patients and exceptional healthcare partners to reach outstanding outcomes at this new facility.”
William Hunter, MD, FAANS – Neurosurgeon and Spine Specialist, Neuroscience & Spine Center of the Carolinas: “I have served this community as a neurosurgeon for more than 23 years, I am proud to partner alongside CaroMont Regional Medical Center, Carolina Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine and OrthoCarolina with the opening of the Belmont Surgery Center. Within this partnership, I will be able to perform the newest techniques in minimally invasive spine surgery in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. The Belmont Surgery Center will have the latest equipment along with an excellent specialized staff. I am excited to be a part of its inception and look forward to being part of a strong collaboration of surgeons and staff to provide state of the art care to the community.”

BOCA RATON, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 28, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- UrgentVet, which is the first dedicated urgent care clinic for pets, has recently announced the addition of Casco Pet enclosures at its new clinics around the country. These revolutionary enclosures represent a significant improvement over traditional metal cages and as a result exemplify UrgentVet’s commitment to compassionate care.
The UrgentVet clinic in Boca Raton was opened on June 2, 2022 in South Florida and it was the first UrgentVet to be built with the new enclosures. In the future, the new and improved enclosures will be a staple of each new UrgentVet clinic across the country.
“The Casco Pet enclosures are the absolute finest on the market, so it was a no-brainer for us to transition to including them as the standard in our new clinics,” said Dr. Jim Dobies, the founder of UrgentVet. “Everything we do at UrgentVet is with the pet’s care and comfort in mind, and these enclosures provide advantages that will enable our staff to deliver the type of care pet parents expect.”
For many pets, ambient cage noise can be a trigger for anxiety. However, the new enclosures are constructed with tempered glass and, as a result, are 70% quieter than metal cages. This is a design decision that helps make these enclosures the most Fear-Free product which is currently available on the market.
The new enclosures include a warming feature in the floor. This enables staff to be able to independently control each enclosure’s temperature. In addition to this feature, each enclosure has its own exhaust fan, integrated oxygen chamber, electrical outlet and fluid bag hanger. This wealth of features facilitates easier cord management with medical equipment. On top of all of this, there is an embedded lighting element in each enclosure that allows staff to tint each enclosure one of three distinct colors. Green has a calming effect, red is for pets in recovery from a procedure or trauma and blue which is for easier clean-up of debris and dirt.
UrgentVet was founded in the Charlotte region of North Carolina and is now headquartered in Tampa, Florida. UrgentVet also has clinics in North & South Carolina, other areas of Florida, and future openings are planned for Texas and Georgia later this year.
The vision which governs the UrgentVet practice model is to provide dogs and cats with trusted after-hours acute care just like urgent care for humans. All veterinarians and support staff that are employed by UrgentVet are “Fear Free Certified Professionals”. This means that they are skilled in caring for both the pet’s physical needs and the pet’s emotional well-being.
UrgentVet clinics frequently treat vomiting, diarrhea, lacerations, wounds, as well as skin and ear problems among many other presenting complaints. The average UrgentVet bill is about 40% less than what a pet parent may pay for comparable services at a typical veterinary ER.
“Any time a pet encounters an injury or illness, it’s an unpleasant experience for both the animal and the pet parent,” said Dr. Dobies. “We want to do whatever we can to make the pet’s experience in our clinic as comfortable as possible before returning them to their family and their home. Our investment in Casco enclosures is just one more way that we work to keep furry family members emotionally and physically supported while they’re at UrgentVet.”
Several Case studies have demonstrated multiple key benefits of Casco enclosures. These benefits include more efficient recovery, increased comfort for pets waking from sedation, and improved visibility for observation by clinic staff.
UrgentVet was founded by Dr. Jim Dobies and it is the first dedicated urgent care clinic for pets. Offering after-hours services, UrgentVet provides pet parents with an affordable and convenient alternative to 24-hour emergency vets. UrgentVet currently operates clinics in Belmont, North Carolina; Chapel Hill, North Carolina; Huntersville, North Carolina; Gastonia, North Carolina; Ballantyne (Charlotte), North Carolina; Cary, North Carolina; Fort Mill, South Carolina; Westchase (Tampa), Florida; Brandon, Florida; New Port Richey, Florida; Gainesville, Florida; west Orlando (Ocoee), Florida; Sarasota, Florida; The Villages, Florida; Lakewood Ranch, Florida; St. Johns, Florida; Lakeland, Florida; Boca Raton, Florida; and Cypress, Texas.

A Ukrainian woman who fled to Belmont now may have to wait up to 10 months before she can legally work in America.
BELMONT, N.C. — Ukrainians fleeing to America for safety are running into another roadblock when they get here. Their efforts to build a new life are thwarted by backlogs at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, causing work authorization cards to be delayed by months.
Among them is Karyna Kamyshan, who escaped war-torn Ukraine for Belmont in June. She is now reunited with a Belmont family she met as a child living in a Ukrainian orphanage.
“Of course, I feel like I’m at home with family," Kamyshan said through a translator. "The family really loves me and accepted me well."
Rebecca Adams couldn’t adopt Kamyshan when she met her as a child but stayed in touch. Even though they’re not officially a family, Kamyshan came to live with Adams under a U.S. humanitarian parole program called Uniting for Ukraine.
“We hadn’t seen each other in eight years," Adams said. "When I saw her in the airport walking down, I cried. It was happy tears. It was so good to see her and know that she is safe and that she’s sleeping without being woken up every single night by sirens.”
Kamyshan's journey to a new life is not over yet.
A backlog at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services means it could take up to 10 months for Kamyshan to receive a work authorization card. Immigration attorney Mercey Cauley said this is not uncommon.
“With COVID going on and also there was a hiring freeze within Homeland security," Cauley said. "With those two things happening at the same time, USCIS just became very backed up."
“She's eager and excited to work," Adams said. "She’s hoping to make money to be able to send to her boyfriend, who’s still in Ukraine, and for her future. She doesn’t want to be a charity case. She truly wants to work and she’s used to working.”
"USCIS has extended immigration help to those affected by the invasion of Ukraine by expediting the adjudication of petitions or applications, including employment authorization applications, when appropriate. USCIS has received approximately 10,000 EAD applications since March 24 from Ukrainians who have been paroled into the United States. Agency adjudicators evaluate every petition and application fairly, humanely, and efficiently on a case-by-case basis before issuing a determination, and the agency remains committed to upholding America’s promise as a nation of welcome and possibility with fairness, integrity, and respect for all we serve.
USCIS is committed to increasing access to eligible immigration benefits and reducing unnecessary burdens in the immigration system. We’re currently working to streamline the application and processing of employment authorization (EADs) for noncitizens paroled into the United States on humanitarian grounds, including Afghan and Ukrainian nationals.
This is consistent with USCIS’ efforts to deliver on President Biden’s Executive Order on Restoring Faith in Our Legal Immigration Systems and Strengthening Integration and Inclusion Efforts for New Americans. USCIS has set new agency-wide backlog reduction goals, which includes a strong focus on EAD processing. The agency has temporarily suspended biometrics requirements for extensions of stay for certain nonimmigrant dependents – allowing them quicker access to employment authorization; increased the validity period of several EAD categories from one to two years (including for asylees and refugees); expanded automatic EAD extensions to various nonimmigrant classifications; announced an update to consider certain nonimmigrant dependent spouses employment authorized without having to apply for an EAD; created efficiencies by introducing online filing for OPT-related employment authorization; and implemented free expedited processing for healthcare and childcare workers who have a pending EAD application for renewal with employment authorization that is expired or near expiration.
Successes in reducing processing times more generally include: Cutting the naturalization queue by 14% from January to September 2021; reducing the number of pending biometrics appointments from 1.4 million in January 2021 to 7,000 as of May 2022; and fully eliminating the “front-log” of cases awaiting intake processing (which was more than one million receipts in January 2021 and was eliminated by July 2021)."
