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". 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 Mount Holly, 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 Mount Holly, 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 Mount Holly, NC GAINSWave® is the answer. Using low-strength soundwaves or shockwaves, GAINSWave® treatment in Mount Holly 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:

Braswell has 22 years of local and state government experience, previously working for the city of Charlotte and Gaston County Schools before joining the Mount Holly administrative staff in 2014. He was promoted to assistant city manager in 2016 and city manager in 2020.
“We are fortunate to have had someone with Miles’ experience to lead the city during his tenure as city manager. The Council and I thank Miles for serving the city of Mount Holly for the past nine years. His dedication to Mount Holly is evident in the leadership of our departments,” Mount Holly Mayor Bryan Hough said in a press release.
Braswell said his time in Mount Holly leadership has been valuable and rewarding.
“It has been an honor to be Mount Holly’s city manager, and I have been fortunate to work with such a great city staff as well as to serve the citizens, the mayor, and City Council,” Braswell said in the release. “I am grateful for my time here and what we have been able to accomplish together.”
Mount Holly City Council will meet in the upcoming days to plan the recruiting process for the vacancy.
The Belmont position opened when former City Manager Adrian Miller left in December to take the job of assistant city manager for the city of Gastonia.
Since Miller’s departure, Barry Webb has served as interim manager for the city of Belmont.
Webb was no stranger to the job when he took it. He served as Belmont city manager from 2000 to 2016.
Braswell beat out approximately 20 other applicants. He starts his new job June 7, with a salary of $181,000.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to have Miles lead our great team of employees here at the City of Belmont,” Belmont Mayor Charlie Martin said in a release. “Miles has done a lot of great work with the Mayor and City Council in Mount Holly, so we know he will be a great addition to our team, and we look forward to working with him to continue the work we are doing here in Belmont.”

Gaston County is growing almost as quickly as Charlotte! There are a ton of new businesses and restaurants opening, and a new place is coming to Mount Holly. A new beer and barbecue joint is set to open this spring in Mount Holly, and it sounds like it’s gonna be a cool spot!
According to The Charlotte Observer, Firehawk Brewpub will open soon in the historic Mount Holly firehouse. The restaurant is expecting to open in early April, serving in-house brewed beer and classic Southern barbeque. It’s a big place, 6,000 square feet and it’ll have inside and outside seating.
Firehawk Brewpup’s owner, Scott Blackwood, says he’ll offer his personal recipe for traditional North Carolina wood-fired barbecue. “Being in the fire department, it seemed logical that we cook our food on live, wood-fired grills,” Blackwood told CharlotteFive.
There will be a variety of seating and service options for guests, including full-service tables, a walk-up counter, QR code ordering and a bar area. Firehawk Brewpub will also feature a 40+ person patio facing Dutchman’s Creek. There will also be a second patio with 60-70 seats along Main Street. I can tell you that with all the outside seating, this will be a very popular spot this year!
One of the restaurant’s coolest features is the bundle of wood and s’mores kit that folks can purchase. Customers can enjoy it by the creek, giving people the ability to do some fun family activities at the restaurant.
Blackwood is from Mount Holly which gives him the ability to know what local folks like. The menu will feature recipes from his family and friends. One of the most amazing things about this new restaurant is how Blackwood is honoring his late father. Firehawk Brewpub’s motto is ‘feed everyone’. If you can’t afford your meal, you can put it on Papa Ray’s tab. Folks can donate to Papa Ray’s tab to help feed folks and any extra money on the tab will be donated to charity at the end of the year. I love this idea!
Beer, barbeque, a cool place to hang out and helping others is the perfect combo! I’m all about this place and I’m looking forward to checking it out. The restaurant will be located at 309 North Main Street in Mount Holly. The restaurant is currently hiring staff and you can get info and keep up with details on when the restaurant will open here.

NC Wildlife said the crash happened Sunday at the Riverbend Boat Landing on Eddie Nichols Drive shortly before 6:30 p.m.
The people on the Sea-Doos did not know each other, investigators said, and they don’t think drugs or alcohol were involved.

All five patients were taken to the hospital with injuries that varied from minor to severe. Investigators say there were two adults on one Sea-Doo and three juveniles on the other.
The Lucia-Riverbend Fire Department told Channel 9′s Dave Faherty they have already responded to four accidents on the lake over the last four weeks, including one drowning.
“When they’re out there riding, they’re riding erratically. And I say with due disregard, they’re just not really paying attention,” Fire Chief David Toomey said. “They’re just trying to have a good time and I understand that.”
The wreck comes one week after Willie Gray heard an out of control personal watercraft strike his dock at the home he’s lived in for more than 30 years.
“As you can see right now, it’s very calm, but on the weekends it gets crazy here,” Gray said. “And it’s still early in the season.”
Crews are urging people to make sure they use the kill switch on their personal watercraft and wear a flotation device when on the water. It’s something Tomas Suska knows all too well. He said five years ago, he was on a jet ski when he was struck and had to go to the hospital afterwards.
“Just got in a T-bone accident and didn’t have time to react. The guy was broken in two different places, so you just got to be very careful,” he said.
Faherty asked NC Wildlife about possible charges in the Sea-Doo crash they said the case remains under investigation.

MOUNT HOLLY, N.C. (QUEEN CITY NEWS) – Wastewater will be moving underwater through pipes underneath the Catawba River when a new treatment facility is built near the Whitewater Center in Charlotte.
Mount Holly, Belmont, and Charlotte are all growing so fast that each city needs new technology for wastewater treatment.
“The same thing that makes for good fishing, can end up causing issues,” said Brandon Jones, the Catawba Riverkeeper.
Treated wastewater can be a messy business.
“Our waste has nutrients in it, you can think about it like fertilizer basically, you use manure for fertilizer. It’s kind of the same thing with us,” said Jones.
Jones says Lake Wylie has limits on how much nitrogen phosphorous can be discharged into the water.
“It’s more efficient to build one new facility to treat all of the discharge than to try and upgrade each of the facilities,” said Jones.
Charlotte, Belmont, and Mount Holly are all about to get a major upgrade to wastewater treatment.
Work on the Stowe Regional Water Resource Recovery Facility is now underway.
The pipes are deep underneath in the bedrock of the Catawba River, so deep underwater that the depth is equivalent to the height of a six-story building, 65 to 75 feet below the Catawba River and Long Creek.
Once all the work is finished the underwater pipes will connect to the Stowe Regional water facility that’s being built and carry wastewater from pump stations in Mount Holly and Belmont and the facility in Paw Creek in northwest Charlotte and Mecklenburg County.
The Catawba Riverkeeper says the project, which will cost more than $380 million according to Charlotte Water, is badly needed to keep up with the growth in the area.
“In general, this is a good thing a new facility is going to be able to treat our waste more efficiently and to a higher water quality standard. We’re also eliminating two older facilities and replacing it with one new one, so that’s less likely to have spills and leakages, so in general, this is a good thing for water quality in the region,” said Jones.
The entire project is set to be finished in 2027. A groundbreaking for the massive Stowe facility will likely happen this coming June.
