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 Hanahan, SC 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 Hanahan, SC 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 Hanahan, SC GAINSWave® is the answer. Using low-strength soundwaves or shockwaves, GAINSWave® treatment in Hanahan 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:

Who said winning the lottery was all about luck and not about strategy?
Well, one man has proven that theory wrong by using a strategy he saw on television.
Many may be wondering what exactly the strategy was to crack the code, so to speak.
According to a press release from the South Carolina Education Lottery, his strategy was to spend $25 a week playing the lottery for three months.
So how did this work out for him?
He told the organization that on his first week, he won $500. In his seventh week, he struck gold by winning $100,000 on a Powerball ticket.
This just proves it may be good to try new things.
“I didn’t even know how to play Powerball,” the South Carolina man said within the press release.
Taking a chance from what he learned from the TLC series, he bought the Powerball ticket at a Kwik Fill gas station in Hanahan, S.C., the press release said.
The press release further explained after he bought the ticket, he at first thought he matched just two numbers. Then his wife took a look and noticed there were more matching numbers – just one short of the jackpot drawing.
But, to their surprise, the ticket was enough to win him a total of $100,000, which was double the amount from the initial $50,000 prize, since he spent an extra $1 on his ticket, the press release said.
Don’t think the man did all this work without getting himself something nice.
The man used the winnings to buy a car and still plans on finishing what he started – the $25-a-week strategy.
“I’m going to finish out the three months,” he said.
So, was the man winning pure luck or cunning strategy? You decide.

North Charleston’s Dixie Majors baseball team captured the 2022 World Series title with a 10-7 win over Louisiana on July 27.

North Charleston’s Dixie Majors baseball team captured the 2022 World Series title with a 10-7 win over Louisiana on July 27. The win marked the 10th World Series title for North Charleston’s program, all under the direction of Kenny Wilkinson.
“Really proud of this group of guys,” said Wilkinson, a member of the Charleston Baseball Hall of Fame. “We had 18 guys and honestly all 18 contributed in some way to our success. As a group, they did their part and did what was asked of them. They were an unselfish group. A real pleasure to coach.”
North Charleston went 6-1 in the tournament, reeling off five straight wins after its only loss.
Caleb Singleton, Doom Dennis and Aryan Patel each had two hits and a RBI in the championship game. Singleton had multiple hits in the team’s last three games of the tournament.
Singleton and Patel are Berkeley County products, having played at Goose Creek High School and Hanahan High School.
The roster also includes Berkeley High School graduates Eric Green and Jesse Free.
“We swung the bats really well all week and we got production up and down the lineup,” Wilkinson said.
Nick Vaughn was the winning pitcher, notching his second victory of the tournament. Jacob Crabb earned the save in the title game. Crabb also had a win earlier in the tournament.
“We used all eight pitchers, a few of them multiple times, and they all did a great job,” Wilkinson said.
North Charleston grabbed control early in the game with a four-run second inning before Louisiana used a three-run homer in the third to close the gap to 4-3.
Three runs in the fourth pushed North Charleston’s lead to 8-3. After Louisiana scored twice in the fifth, North Charleston tacked on three runs in the bottom of the inning. Louisiana scratched for two in the sixth but Crabb shut the door in the seventh to secure the win.
“This team just battled all week,” Wilkinson said. “Every time they got knocked down, they got up and answered the bell. This is not an easy tournament to win. Our guys really deserve a lot of credit.”
This year’s tournament was played in Nashville, Tennessee. North Charleston will host the 2023 World Series next summer.

The curtains are being pulled back on the high school football season for Berkeley County School District programs.
When the sun comes up on July 29, South Carolina High School League programs will be able to push open locker room doors and head out to the practice field for the first time officially. Temperatures are always high, as are expectations. Everybody is still 0-0 and optimistic about what could be.
The final Berkeley County program playing last fall figures to be productive in the success department this season, too. The Philip Simmons Iron Horses return a talented group from a squad that won 11 games and reached the third round of the Class AA playoffs in 2021. They return multiple all-state players.
“We have a lot of kids back who played meaningful snaps,” Philip Simmons coach Eric Bendig said. “We have to make sure they know seasons like last year just don’t happen. You don’t just get a trophy for showing up. Since we’ve been here we’ve been cultivating a culture in the program that you have to earn what you want. If we want to continue our success, we’ve got to put in the work.”
Bendig’s bunch captured its first region title last fall and is in a tough new region along with Hanahan and Beaufort. The Iron Horses move up to Class AAA.
Their all-state players coming back are sophomore defensive lineman Devontay McNeil, junior defensive lineman Bryce Smalls and senior kicker/punter Griffin Gore. Smalls and McNeil amassed 179 total tackles combined and recovered five fumbles apiece. On special teams, Gore was successful on 51 extra points and seven field goals with 38 touchbacks and a 39.6 per-punt average.
The Hanahan Hawks handed Philip Simmons its only setback in the regular season last year and return their own gifted group for veteran coach Art Craig, who has more than 230 wins in 20-plus seasons.
Hanahan averaged more than 34 points per game in 2021 en route to an 8-3 finish and appearance in the second round of the Class AAA playoffs. Junior running back Kevon Rivera is a bruiser and sophomore quarterback Jaden Cummings throws a good ball.
“The biggest thing is with our older guys learning how to take ownership of the team,” Craig said. “When they see things and correct them, and do it by example, that’s how you take the next step. A lot of these guys are going into their third year in the program. There is an expectation level there. They’re starting to understand it a little bit. We want to take it up to another level.”
At Goose Creek High School, the Gators are working on a three-year Region 7-AAAAA winning streak. They’re aiming to make it four straight this fall after going unbeaten against region foes and advancing to the second round of the Class AAAAA playoffs last year.
Gators quarterback Drew Moore, a senior, will be one of two third-year starting quarterbacks in the county. Timberland’s Kylen Brown, a junior, is the other.
Moore, a Mercer commit, passed for more than 2,500 yards and 27 touchdowns as a junior and 1,717 yards and 18 touchdowns as a sophomore.
In the backfield, the Gators graduated two-time region player of the year Demetri Simmons.
“The last couple years, teams geared up to stop Demetri,” Gators coach Jason Winstead said. “It opened up a lot of things for Drew. Now, the goal is going to be to stop Drew. He’s going to have to be patient and take what teams give us. He’ll have to let the plays come to him until we learn to run the football better.”
Across the City of Goose Creek, the Stratford Knights are aiming to build on a 2021 campaign that saw them win a playoff game for the first time in seven years.
Coach Dennie McDaniel’s bunch figures to challenge Goose Creek’s supremacy in the region.
Knights quarterback Jalen Barry returns along with four all-region players.
One thing is for certain. Stratford will be battle-tested when region play rolls around. A look at the non-region slate reveals a brutal stretch over the first several weeks of the season.
“We’ve always played the same people over and over again,” McDaniel said. “I just wanted to branch out and get some teams from Columbia and the Pee Dee area that we haven’t seen before. It’s definitely some stiff competition. I’ve had some people ask me what I’m doing setting up a tough schedule like that.
“We want to be an elite team, not just in the Lowcountry but in the state. To get to that level, you have to play good people. It’s a tall task but we’re using that as a battle cry going into the season.”
Cane Bay is in the conversation to challenge Goose Creek for the region crown, too. The Cobras bring back three all-region players, including leading rusher TJ Wright and offensive lineman Kameron Durant, an East Carolina commit.
Like the Gators and Knights, Cane Bay finished up 2021 in the second round of the Class AAAAA playoffs. On the ground, the run-heavy Cobras figure to be as efficient an offense as there is in the Lowcountry.
“I feel like this group has potential,” Cane Bay coach Russell Zehr said. “We’ve got some good guys back on the offensive line. That’s always the biggest thing with us. I think we have enough speed to take advantage of that. Doesn’t matter how fast you are if you can’t block.”
Berkeley is eyeing a return to normalcy in its second season as part of Jerry Brown’s second stint. The Stags finished 2-6 last season but did make the playoffs before falling to eventual Lower State finalist Fort Dorchester in the first round.
Brown previously guided the Stags for 18 seasons and brought home three state championships in 1994, 1996 and 2009. He also has state titles at Spring Valley (1988) and Batesburg-Leesville (2014).
With his track record, there is reason to believe the Stags will be much-improved in 2022.
Teams can scrimmage for the first time Aug. 4. Locally, the Moncks Corner Lions Club jamboree is set for Aug. 12 at Berkeley High School.
Every BCSD team kicks off the regular season in Week 0 on Aug. 19.
Week 0 games include Berkeley at Timberland, Goose Creek vs. South Florence, Stratford vs. Avon, Ohio in Orlando, Cane Bay at Beaufort, Hanahan vs. Georgetown, Philip Simmons at Andrews and Cross at Calhoun County.
In SCISA, St. John’s Christian hosts Kings Academy and Northwood Academy heads to Greenwood Christian.

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCBD) – Hanahan residents are still frustrated over trains that continue to block area roadways for hours at a time.
One train was seen blocking Hanahan Road for hours Wednesday morning, and before that, Hanahan town administrator Mike Cochran told News 2 a train sat blocking roads for more than 20 hours straight recently.
The road the trains are blocking is a major thoroughfare for people driving to and from Rivers Avenue and Hanahan.
“We’ve got about 7,000 cars a day that cross the tracks right here, and in the last several months, we’ve had multiple instances where the tracks just get blocked by a parked train,” said Cochran.
Drivers are forced to add additional time to their commute; it also slows emergency responses.
“From the city’s perspective, if you’re trying to get an ambulance through the city, you’re crossing here in order to get over to the hospitals,” he explained.
Technically, blocking the road is illegal according to more-than-100-year-old state laws. But the fine is only $5 to $20, and it is difficult to enforce.
“We have contacted CSX and spoke with them on several occasions, and they’re aware of it, but it really is frustrating for our residents and frustrating for everybody involved,” said Cochran. “Last week, it sat there for over 30 hours.”
Cochran said he has a plan that may give residents a way to know when a train is stopped in the area. The county owns the library at the corner of Murray Drive and Highland Park Road. He’s asked about placing a camera there.
“I said is there a way that we could put a camera, or the county put a camera, on the library? If they were to put a camera on that library and point it toward the tracks, we would have a constant feed of exactly what the status of the tracks are.”
The video would also be streamed online.
“We’ll have that ability to push that information out, so while it’s not a perfect solution, it will at least allow an option because right now the only way you know if the tracks are blocked it’s the drive to them.”
News 2 reached out to CSX to see if they have any plans to change their policy of blocking trains for hours at a time. We are waiting to hear back.
More than 30 high school baseball teams from multiple states will compete for titles in the 52nd annual Hanahan Invitational Tournament set for April 11-14.The tournament has two divisions named for former Hanahan High Hawks baseball coaches, Tom Hatfield and Bill Steadman.

More than 30 high school baseball teams from multiple states will compete for titles in the 52nd annual Hanahan Invitational Tournament set for April 11-14.
The tournament has two divisions named for former Hanahan High Hawks baseball coaches, Tom Hatfield and Bill Steadman. Hatfield started the HIT in 1970 as a way to get a few local teams together for games during spring break. Steadman followed Hatfield at HHS and the tournament eventually swelled into a premier spring break stop as more teams from outside South Carolina accepted invitations to visit the Lowcountry.
States represented in the 2022 HIT are South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio and New York. Another squad will make its way into town from Washington, D.C.
“We do have some strong teams coming in,” Hanahan coach Brian Mitchell said. “We know locally we have some great teams but we have our hands full trying to win it. The team from D.C. is the team to beat. Their head coach is something like 316-80. They’re loaded. There is some quality baseball coming to town. We’re going to have to hunker down and play well.”
Eight of the local clubs are ranked inside the top 10 of their respective classifications by the South Carolina Baseball Coaches Association.
Last spring, Summerville High School rallied from a five-run deficit to edge Blessed Trinity from Roswell, Ga., with a run in the bottom of the seventh. It was the difference in the Green Wave’s 8-7 victory in the championship game. The 2021 field was smaller due to COVID concerns.
Summerville went on to capture the Class AAAAA Lower State title in 2021.
“It’s a good gauge to see how you’re playing going into the end of the season,” Mitchell said. “If you do well in the HIT, you’re going to go on and do well in the playoffs.”
Host sites for the first two days of the tournament are Hanahan, Goose Creek, James Island, Ashley Ridge, Summerville, West Ashley, Bishop England and Wando. Semifinal sites will be determined later. Hanahan will host the championship games on April 14.
There is also a junior varsity division, which was won by the host school last spring. Fifteen of the 17 squads set to compete are from the Charleston area.
