Quick Quote

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.

GAINSWave® Treatment In Indian Trail, NC

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.

How GAINSWave® Works

It might sound like GAINSWave® is too good to be true, but the fact is this kind of erectile dysfunction treatment in Indian Trail, 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:

  • For most men, you can expect to have between 6 and 12 GAINSWave® sessions
  • Sessions typically take 15 to 20 minutes.
  • GAINSWave® works by releasing growth factors in your penis tissue, which generates new blood vessels.
  • GAINSWave® promotes healthy blood flow by breaking up plaque formation, giving men harder, stronger erections for longer periods of time.
  • GAINSWave® also activates dormant stem cells, which leads to new cell growth in men.

Hidden Risks of Prescription Erectile Dysfunction Treatment

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:

  • Back Pain
  • Muscle Pain
  • Headaches
  • Vision Loss
  • Rashes
  • Respiratory Issues
  • Hearing Loss
  • Dizziness
  • Upset Stomach
  • Ringing in Ears
  • Fever
 VIVEVE Indian Trail, NC

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 Indian Trail, 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."

GAINSWave®, COVID-19, and ED

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.

 Shockwave Therapy Indian Trail, NC

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.

GAINSWave®: A Natural, Non-Invasive Treatment for Peyronie's Disease

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:

  • Erectile Dysfunction: Men with this disease may have problems achieving or maintaining erections.
  • Misshapen Penis: Some men with this disease suffer from a narrowing of the penis when erect, resembling an hourglass shape.
  • Notable Bend in Penis: One of the most common symptoms of Peyronie's Disease includes significant penis curvature, which is defined by a severe and unnatural bend.
  • Scar Tissue: A common symptom of this disease is bands of tissue or hard lumps underneath the skin of the penis.
  • Shortened Penis: Some men with this disease have reported a reduction in penis length.
  • Pain in Penis: Peyronie's has the potential to cause pain in a man's penis, regardless of whether he has an erection or not.
 Hormone Replacement Therapy Indian Trail, NC

Fortunately, for men who are looking for a non-invasive, natural erectile dysfunction treatment in Indian Trail, NC GAINSWave® is the answer. Using low-strength soundwaves or shockwaves, GAINSWave® treatment in Indian Trail 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.

P-Shot® Erectile Dysfunction Treatment in Indian Trail, NC

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.

 Testosterone Replacement Therapy Indian Trail, NC

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:

  • Increased blood flow to the penis
  • Improved stamina during sexual activities
  • Improvement and possible resolution of penile curvature issues caused by Peyronie's Disease
  • Increased penis sensitivity
  • Improvements to penis girth and length

Mending Pawz Rescue says the increase in supplies over the last year have gone up about 10%

INDIAN TRAIL, N.C. — The impact of inflation is affecting everyone in different ways, but for Mending Pawz Rescue of NC, the founders say rising costs are now making their mission much more challenging to rescue as many cats as possible and find their forever homes.

The rescue first started back in 2018. Typically Mending Pawz says donations cover about 20% of its costs. The rest is out of pocket. Now those out-of-pocket expenses are becoming much more costly.

“I’d say the increase in supplies overall over the past year has probably gone up about 10 percent," Matthew Szymanski said. “The average cost per cat from intake through placement is anywhere from $250 to $650 depending on the cat.”

WCNC Charlotte is always asking "where's the money?" If you need help, reach out to WCNC Charlotte by emailing money@wcnc.com.

Some of the necessary supplies to provide for the 40-50 cats in their care include food, litter, veterinary visits, cleaning supplies, beds, crates and more.

“Unfortunately it all comes down to money and if we can’t stretch thin anymore, we have [had] to turn away cats in the past -- which is the antithesis to our mission," Szymanski said.

Mending Pawz says they can make the most of one-time or recurring donations to help meet some of their needs.

“One of the benefits of having the recurring monthly donation versus just the one time is that it allows us to project out into the future how many cats we’ll be able to intake this month," Szymanski said.

But in addition to money, Mending Pawz is also looking for volunteers willing to offer their time or skill such as pro bono veterinary services or social media help.

For those interested in helping or donating, Mending Pawz has an Amazon wish list.

Local company grows grass field specially for Chelsea FC match in Charlotte

INDIAN TRAIL, N.C. — Last week, on a farm 30 minutes from Charlotte, Danny Losito made final, and precise checks.

"We're kind of putting eyes on it for the last time before it gets harvested for install," Losito said.

Losito is the Manager of Fields and Conversions for Tepper Sports & Entertainment.

For the last few months, the pitch for Charlotte FC's friendly against Chelsea FC grew on a 45-acre property in Indian Trail owned by Chad Price and his wife Kerry.

"Thirty-four years in the business now," Price, president of Carolina Green Corp., said.

It's called GameOn Grass.

And from right here in the Charlotte region they service major college football surfaces, and NFL teams like the Chiefs and Ravens as well as the Panthers practice fields.

Part of the pitch to get popular English Premier League side Chelsea FC to play in Charlotte was the installation of natural grass, which all EPL teams play on.

"The way we've kind of cultivated it here is going to kind of simulate the grass that Chelsea is maybe preferred to," Losito said.

It's a fairly new variety called Tahoma 31 Bermudagrass.

Now that the Garth Brooks concerts are done at Bank of America Stadium, the process of installing a natural grass field for one night only begins. The field for #CharlotteFC vs #ChelseaFC was grown locally. It will take 31 tractor trailer truckloads to bring it all to BofA. @wcnc https://t.co/Le3dvJtApC pic.twitter.com/JpBZxdD9mr

— Nick Carboni (@NickCarboniWCNC) July 17, 2022

It's not exactly what's used across the pond, but it should feel that way for the players.

"More of an upright plant growth," Losito said. "So their cleats are coming in and out. A little bit more leaf for better ball roll."

Rolls. Hundreds of them.

As Garth Brooks wrapped up his second concert at Bank of America Stadium, Price and his crew were harvesting the field at the farm.

Thirty truckloads of sod rolls were then brought to Uptown Charlotte overnight for installation on top of a protective event surface left behind after the concerts.

Each load grossed 80,000 pounds.

"14-hour period," Price said. "Which we've done before but it's quite a challenge."

The grass is actually born in South Carolina and grown in sand to simulate its final destination.

Then it moves to Price's property where it's grown on a bed plastic.

That, plus its weight (17 lbs. per square foot) gives this grass its greatest strengths.

"It makes the Bermudagrass intertwine the roots amongst themselves and it gets a really, tough, durable sod," Price said. "You can lay it on the ground and play on it immediately."

That's what they'll do Wednesday, under the watchful eyes of Losito.

"Players cleats are interacting how we want them to," he said. "And hopefully after the game is over, get some sleep."

Tepper Sports & Entertainment declined to give a cost for the project, but Carolina Green Corp.'s work at Texas A&M's Kyle Field in 2014 cost $300,000.

After Wednesday's match, some of the grass will be taken by members of the grounds crew for their own lawns, and some will be re-used on golf courses and the Panthers' practice fields.

Much of the field will no longer be usable after the match because the process to remove it is destructive to the grass.

Potter beats teammate to reach quarters at U.S. Junior Amateur

They are high school teammates, best friends, fellow club members and residents of the same San Diego-area neighborhood. When asked, Luke Potter and Caden Pinckes estimated that they have played “in the thousands” of rounds together.

No previous match was bigger than the one they played on a breezy Thursday afternoon on the southwest Oregon coast. Potter, 18, of Encinitas, Calif., rolled past his Classical Academy teammate, 7 and 5, in the Round of 16 of the 74th U.S. Junior Amateur Championship at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort.

A semifinalist in the 2021 championship at The Country Club of North Carolina who has signed to play for Arizona State, Potter advanced to a quarterfinal showdown on Friday against Wenyi Ding, 17, of the People’s Republic of China. Ding, No. 20 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking®, defeated left-hander John Broderick, of Wellesley, Mass., 5 and 3.

Broderick, a Vanderbilt signee, had eliminated the medalist and top seed, Keaton Vo, of Austin, Texas, 1 up, in the Round of 32 earlier on Thursday.

Also advancing to the final eight are Eric Lee, 17, of Fullerton, Calif.; Jeffrey Guan, 18, of Australia; Caleb Surratt, 18, of Indian Trail, N.C.; Preston Stout, 18, of Dallas, Texas; Luke Clanton, 18, of Miami Lakes, Fla.; and defending champion Nicholas Dunlap, 18, of Tuscaloosa, Ala.

A day after calm conditions at Bandon Dunes, Thursday saw a return of wind gusts in the 20-mph range and temperatures in the 50s.

This was great news for Potter, who said after his Round-of-64 win on Wednesday that he relishes the challenge that links golf brings. The only player in this U.S. Junior Amateur field who competed in the 2020 U.S. Amateur at Bandon Dunes, Potter also reached the quarterfinals of last year’s U.S. Amateur Four-Ball with partner and 2019 U.S. Junior Amateur champion Preston Summerhays at Chambers Bay, a venue in University Place, Wash., that has similar playing characteristics to Bandon Dunes.

Pinckes, 17, a rising senior, plays plenty of friendly matches with Potter at Omni La Costa Resort & Spa, their home course. Potter never let his pal breathe in this one, winning No. 1 with a birdie, then earning wins on Nos. 2, 3, 5, 7, 8 and 9 to grab a 7-up advantage at the turn.

“That was tough,” said Pinckes. “I got my teeth kicked in.”

Said Potter, who played 4-under golf on the front nine: “We practice together every day. We're very competitive on and off the course. Anytime you get a chance to tee it up with him at a tournament, it's going to be a good time, but at the same time you've got to stay focused on what you're doing, and it's just another opponent.”

In another matchup of Southern Californians, Lee, a Sunny Hills rising senior who plans to play for the University of California-Berkeley in 2023, knocked out incoming Long Beach State freshman and Servite High grad Jack Cantlay, of Los Alamitos, Calif., 2 and 1. The winner of the 2021 American Junior Golf Association’s Tournament of Champions and runner-up in the 2021 Junior PGA Championship, Lee never trailed in beating the younger brother of reigning PGA Tour Player of the Year Patrick Cantlay.

Surratt, No. 19 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking®, continued his impressive play with a 7-and-5 win over Ethan Fang, of Plano, Texas. He has played just 41 holes in three matches. Surratt’s quarterfinal opponent will be Stout, a 3-and-2 winner over Joshua Koo, of Cerritos, Calif. Stout could join an impressive list of seven Texans to have won the U.S. Junior since 1999, a group that includes major champions Jordan Spieth and Scottie Scheffler.

Clanton, a 2021 semifinalist who is headed to Florida State in the fall, twice rallied from 2-down deficits to beat Johnnie Clark, of Mesa, Ariz., 3 and 1. The 2022 North & South Amateur champion next faces University of Alabama incoming freshman Dunlap, the defending champion, in the last of the four quarterfinal matches. Dunlap defeated William Love, of Atlanta, Ga., 1 up. Love had a chance to force extra holes for a second consecutive match, but lipped out a 4-foot birdie putt on No. 18. Earlier in the day, Love went 21 holes to defeat Christiaan Maas, of South Africa.

What’s Next

The quarterfinal and semifinal rounds will be contested on Friday on Bandon Dunes, with the first quarterfinal match starting at 7 a.m. PDT. The two semifinal matches are scheduled for 1:08 p.m. and 1:20 p.m. Saturday’s 36-hole final is set for 7:30 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. Golf Channel will broadcast live from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. EDT on Friday and Saturday. Spectators are encouraged to attend, and admission is free.

7 more Charlotte-area stores fined for overcharging, state audit shows

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The number of grocery stores overcharging for items has skyrocketed, state audits show, and officials believe staffing shortages could be to blame.

According to state records, seven Charlotte-area stores received fines for overcharging in the first quarter of 2022. They include four Walmart stores, in Belmont, North Charlotte, Matthews, and Indian Trail, two Dollar Generals, in Marshville and East Charlotte, and a Dollar Store in Northeast Charlotte.

“Normally we hand out nearly $40,000 to $50,000 in fines where stores have been overcharging, and this past year it was over half a million,” Chad Parker, the Standards Measurement Manager for the Department of Agriculture, said.

This map below shows 42 stores fined across North Carolina during the first quarter of 2022.

The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services conducts periodic, unannounced inspections of price-scanning systems to ensure accuracy. There could be penalties involved if a store fails a follow-up inspection.

The goal of the inspections is to keep stores honest and accurate.

"Stores have had a very big problem keeping up with the price changes," Parker said.

Consumers who would like to file a complaint about scanner errors can call the Standards Division at 984-236-4750.
