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 Weddington, 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 Weddington, 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 Weddington, 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 Weddington, 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 Weddington, 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 Weddington, NC

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

UNION COUNTY, N.C. — In the town of Weddington, if you talk to most residents, one of the things they appreciate is the small-town feel.

But they say some of the roads and schools are already congested. A new proposed development would be too much.

The Weddington Green project would develop land between Providence and Weddington Roads into Weddington Green which would feature 197 homes, a few specialty shops, office spaces, hiking and biking trails, a beer garden, an amphitheater, food truck stalls and an eight and half-acre park.

The proposal -- unanimously recommended by the Town Planning Commission -- has received an outpouring of backlash from locals including a petition with

It was a full house at the All Saints Church in Weddington on Monday night.

Church wasn’t in session, the town city council was.

Not only was the auditorium packed with at least 500 people, there was a line outside and Monday night’s meeting had to be moved from town hall to accompany the large crowd.

Most in town were there to send a message to the town’s council: the proposed development is not wanted.

“It is right on our front doorstep,” resident Kim Topalian said.

Topalian is one of the leaders who organized this fight. One of the things the residents say they fear most is all the additional traffic.

“Right now, we have so much traffic on Providence,” she said. “Providence is a nightmare to take our kids to school, if you leave after 7 a.m. you’re in trouble.”

Some in Weddington have compared the proposal to an addition made in the town of Waverly.

The developer said it would be more like Waxhaw or Davidson with a park.

This quiet piece of land is causing quite the uproar in Weddington. A developer is proposing a 197 home community with a park, amphitheater, greenway. Almost 2,000 residents signed a petition against the development they worry will add to traffic and other problems @wsoctv pic.twitter.com/Q4vsZSnW4f

“I’m very excited that this many (people) did come out, because what we’re hoping to do tonight is to clear up some of the misperceptions, there are a whole bunch of comparisons that are just false,” Tom Waters, president of the Provident Land Company, said on Monday night.

After the presentation, not many of the residents changed their mind. They see the Weddington Green as a permanent change to their town that they don’t want.

“So our thing is were trying to keep that small town feel instead of having the hustle bustle of Charlotte,” resident Jim Bell said.

The Weddington Town Council had the option to approve a zoning change that would’ve paved the way for the development, but they did not plan to take a vote Monday night.

Instead, the public hearing was an opportunity for the community to voice their opinion.

The council received an earful, but more will be to come. Only about 30 people got to speak during Monday’s meeting, so the public conversation will be continued until the town council’s next meeting on April 11.

4 Fast Facts about dogs in hot weather

Did you know dogs are terrible at sweating? The primary way they keep cool is through panting. Here are more facts and tips to help your canine manage the heat.

Dangerously high temperatures have been recorded across the U.S. throughout much of the summer, with some areas seeing temperatures nearing or exceeding 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

Millions of Americans sought comfort by staying in the shade or in air-conditioned homes and offices, and cooled themselves in fountains, at beaches or cooling centers.

As people are finding unique ways to keep themselves cool, a spike in Google searches showed people are also wondering how to keep their dogs cool in the summer.

The VERIFY team went to experts to find out whether some claims about dogs in the heat are true.

1. These are the signs to look for if your dog is suffering from heat or dehydration

A dog can overheat, and suffer from dehydration or heatstroke just like a human can. These are some early warning signs if your dog is suffering in the heat.

Signs of a dehydrated dog include sunken eyes and dry mouth, gums and nose. Poor skin elasticity is another dehydration symptom, which you can test by gently pulling up on the skin at the back of your dog’s neck, according to the American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation (AKCCHF).

Overheated dogs can suffer heat exhaustion, heat stroke or sudden death, AKCCHF warns. Panting, followed by disorientation and fast, noisy breathing could signal overheating. Other possible signs: Collapsing or convulsing, bright red or blue gums, vomiting and diarrhea.

According to the U.K.-based The Kennel Club, which is one of the largest dog welfare organizations in the world, 1 in 7 dogs taken to the vet for heat stroke dies, but 98% of those treated early survive.

If you notice any of these signs or symptoms, contact your veterinarian immediately.

2. Giving dogs ice cubes is a useful way to keep them cool on hot days

A copypasta meme recently circulated across Facebook, claiming to have come from a veterinarian that experienced the loss of a dog to heat stroke. Copypasta is internet slang for a block of text that gets copied and pasted repeatedly.

The meme said, “Please do not give your dogs ice cubes or other frozen items in the heat to cool them down! Ice cubes do not cool dogs down!”

The post claims giving dogs ice cubes causes them to heat up because it tricks the brain into thinking they are cold. But The Kennel Club says that is not true.

Giving dogs ice cubes, cold water or frozen treats is a useful way to help dogs stay cool on hot days, The Kennel Club says.

American Kennel Club (AKC), which is a registry of purebred dog pedigrees in the U.S., says it’s best to fill ice cube trays halfway and then place another treat inside.

“Once frozen, place a small treat like a blueberry or piece of freeze-dried liver in the middle of the cube then fill the rest of the tray with the remaining liquid. Once the entire cube is frozen, there will be a tasty surprise waiting inside when your dog licks or chomps the ice,” AKC says.

Ice cubes could pose a choking risk to some dogs, MetLife Pet Insurance company says, so it’s best to supervise your dog as they eat.

3. Hot pavement can injure your dog’s feet

Ed Faulkner, DVM, a general practitioner with Weddington Animal Hospital in North Carolina, told VERIFY it’s important for pet owners to pay attention to the heat index when preparing to take their dog for a walk.

“The first thing I always recommend doing is pay attention to the weather that's coming up. If they're talking tomorrow, it's going to be 95 degrees, don't have your dog out in the middle of the day. It's just like you would do for yourself – early morning activity when it's still in the 70s for their walk and then late evening activity once it cools off a little bit,” Faulkner said.

“On a day where it's 100 degrees heat index, that pavement can hit 160-170 degrees and ulcerate their pads and create more heat exhaustion, heat stroke issues as well. So keep it real early in the morning and really late in the evening,” he said.

Shallowford Animal Hospital, based in Lewisville, North Carolina, says “remember that if asphalt and cement can get hot enough to cook an egg during the summer or if it feels way too hot for you to leave your hands comfortably on the ground for at least 10 seconds, it can result in nasty burns on your dog’s paw pads. This is especially true if you have a new puppy with tender, young paws.”

Here are some tips to protect puppy paws:

4. Dogs sweat through their paws, but it’s not the primary way they keep cool

According to the American Kennel Club, dogs have two types of sweat glands: the merocrine glands and apocrine glands. The merocrine glands function similarly to human sweat glands and are located in the paw pads. The apocrine glands are located across the body and their main purpose is to release pheromones.

Most dogs are covered in fur, so if their main sweat glands were located on their bodies, the sweat would fail to evaporate – and cooling takes place when sweat evaporates. That’s why it is much more efficient for dogs to have sweat glands in their paw pads, where there is little fur,” the AKC says.

The primary way a dog controls their temperatures, though, is not through their sweaty paws. It’s through panting. When dogs pant, moisture evaporates from their tongues, nasal passages, and the lining of their lungs, cooling them as air passes over the moist tissue.

“Dogs are really inefficient at sweating, it's not their thing to cool off,” Faulkner told VERIFY. “When you [a person] walk outside, you start sweating immediately, they start panting. They cool off through that respiratory operation.”

Air Force football has provided its first cursory look at the 2022 team, releasing a depth chart in advance of the Mountain West media days that will be held in Las Vegas this week.

This is the first depth chart the Falcons have issued since the First Responder Bowl in December, when they capped a 10-3 season by defeating Louisville.

With 11 starters back (six on offense, five on defense) plus a host of others who started multiple games, this depth chart didn’t figure to full of surprises, and it’s not. Still, there are some items worth noting.

- Jace Waters (outside linebacker) and Wyatt Wilson (wide receiver) are the only starters on the offensive and defensive two-deep who have never started a game. Waters is listed at outside linebacker where Camby Goff played last year. Goff is now listed as a safety, replacing Corvan Taylor. Wilson is listed as the starter ahead of David Cormier at the split receiver spot.

- Zac Larrier is the No. 2 quarterback behind two-year returning starter Haaziq Daniels. This indicates the Falcons intend to keep Larrier at that spot instead of exploring him at other positions where he might be able to utilize the speed that has led him to multiple Mountain West titles in the 200-yard dash. Jenson Jones is also at quarterback, which is one of three positions where Air Force includes three players.

- No sophomores are on offense or defense, which likely reveals more about Air Force’s unwillingness to tip its hand than what the actual lineup depth chart will look like when Northern Iowa comes to Falcon Stadium for the opener on Sept. 3. The Falcons do typically lean on upperclassmen, and those classes are extra stocked because of the impact of a large number of players taking turnbacks during the 2020 season, but there are typically a handful of sophomores who crack the two-deep each year.

- Ben Jefferson is listed as the backup to Dane Kinamon at slot receiver. This is the position that lost Micah Davis (transfer), and beyond Kinamon there is little experience.

- Caden Blum is the No. 2 defensive tackle. Blum, a junior, has played tight end throughout his career.

- Colorado Springs native Luke Wieland, a Pine Creek graduate, is the projected starter handling kickoffs.
