It’s Movember around the world and
that means the focus is once again on men’s prostate health, so
this week I dive deep with men’s health specialist Dr Ralph
Esposito. While much of the mainstream is focused on treating men’s
prostate and hormonal imbalances when its too late, Dr Espo and I
explore how we can integrate practices and herbs into our lives so
that optimal sexual health (and beyond) can be maintained. We
explore the effect that pornography has on men’s health and
erectile dysfunction and how we can overcome this with some simple
processes. Physiological factors play a huge part in this
dysfunction and they are heavily discussed. The physiological harm
of stress on men’s health leads to some wonderful insights about
why we need to be keeping stress down if we want erectile and
hormonal function to be strong. Adaptogenic herbs are at it again
in helping maintain optimal health and I loved the herbs Dr Espo is
using, I’ll be upping their intake and I’m sure you’ll be doing the
same. The depth of insights into how to get a hormonal flow that
leads to sexual potency, a long life and potentiated health is
inspiring and there are some great surprises for you in regards to
how simply raising testosterone isn’t the answer to getting better
In this podcast we cover:
My specialty is in integrative urology and men's health. I have experience writing, educating and reviewing in areas such as male and female urological conditions, prostate disease, hormonal issues, andropause, fertility, exercise, men’s health and sexual health. My journey into healthcare and wellness began at NYU, a Bachelor’s in Nutrition & Dietetics and Pre-medical studies. In 2011 I began my research and work with Dr. Geovanni Espinosa at NYU Smilow Integrative and Functional Urology Center. I continued at NYU during my medical training and I still work closely with Dr. Espinosa.
To stay current but also to be involved with the future of medicine, I hold a position as adjunct professor at NYU where I lecture on integrative nutrition. My passion for medicine continued into medical school, where I obtained my naturopathic medical degree and my master's in Acupuncture. I had the honor of working with top tier physicians including Dr. D'Adamo, where my personalized approach to medicine flourished.
Food as medicine is as much a part
of naturopathic medicine as it is of my strong Italian roots. I
love to spend my weekends in the kitchen and my October making
homemade wine with my family.
