Herbal Remedies For Constipation – 3 Herbal Remedies That Can Help End Your Constipation

You are hardly limited when it comes to herbal remedies for constipation; you will find that there is really a long list of herbal remedies for hard stools. Many herbal treatments are amazingly effective and provide super fast relief for your constipation issues too. Three common herbs for hard stool treatment include:

  • Alfalfa
  • Calendula
  • Lemon Balm

Alfalfa

Alfalfa is a wonderful herb loaded with Vitamin K. The latter vitamin promotes the production of healthy bacteria inside the intestinal tract that help in breaking foods down so that they can be more readily assimilated. This herb also has a high level of chlorophyll which helps boost the immune system and promotes faster healing. What is really nice about this herbal treatment is that it is loaded with all natural fiber: a common remedy for constipation. What’s more, this herb has anti-inflammatory agents which can help to sooth irritated intestinal tissues. Finally, Alfalfa is also an herb that is filled with a number of vitamins that offer antioxidants which help in destroying cancer-causing free radicals in the body too.

Calendula

Calendula, also identified under the common name Marigold, has been a long revered constipation treatment. A tincture made from this herb can be stirred into a cup of water and consumed three times daily for constipation relief. Calendula is also wonderful as a tea and works well in soothing issues related to stomach ailments. A single teaspoon of dried Calendula leaves can be steeped in hot water for a few minutes and consumed for hard stool relief. As a natural anti-inflammatory, this herb can be safely consumed in order to alleviate irritated tissues in the digestive tract too.

Lemon Balm

If you are having constipation and cramping, you can take Lemon Balm to alleviate the cramping; this herb is an all natural antispasmodic herbal treatment. Lemon Balm has been used for many years to treat issues with gas, flatulence, bloating, and abdominal cramping and it helps to naturally relax the digestive tract. This herb can be easily consumed as a tea by steeping some leaves in a hot cup of water.

Early Menopause and Lupus

Early menopause occurs most often in women who are 30 to 40 years of age. It may occur in women younger than that with underlying causes. It very important that if you are suffering the signs of early menopause that you consult a doctor to rule out anything else that may be happening or a consequence of other health conditions. This is especially important if you have lupus and are experiencing signs of early menopause.

Lupus Symptoms

There are a few types of lupus including Discoid Lupus and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. Discoid Lupus most often affects the skin. It will present as a red rash that could have raised edges. It commonly occurs on the face and scalp. The rash is not itchy but scarring on the scalp can cause irreversible hair loss. Up to approximately 10% of those who have Discoid Lupus will develop Systemic Lupus Erythematosus.

The most common complaints of those who suffer with systemic lupus erythematosus include fatigue, loss of appetite, muscle pain, arthritis and mouth/ nose ulcerations.

A facial rash (butterfly rash), photosensitivity and inflammation of the lining that surrounds the heart-pleuritis and the heart-pericarditis are also symptoms of lupus. Problems with circulation to the fingers and toes when it is really cold are also called Raynaud’s phenomenon. Inflammation of the brain, liver, and kidneys also occur in SLE. There may be a decrease in white blood cells and clotting factors. This increases the risk of infections and bleeding.

More than 50% of those with SLE will develop the flat red butterfly rash. Most SLE sufferers will develop a type of arthritis that is very similar to rheumatoid arthritis. The small joints of the hands, the wrists, and feet may swell, become painful, stiff and sometimes deformed. Inflammation of the blood vessels especially those that supply oxygen to tissues can cause nerve injury, injury to the skin, or injury to an internal organ.

These are some of the major and most common symptoms of systemic lupus erythematosus. Within each symptom is a set of sub-symptoms that result from the main symptoms. Lupus is an autoimmune disease that can be very treatable. It may also cause death depending on which body organs are affected.

The diagnosis of systemic lupus erythematosus is determined if a patient has four or more of eleven criteria. They are: malar-butterfly rash, discoid rash with patchy redness, photosensitivity (sensitivity to light), mucus membrane ulcers, arthritis, pleuritis and pericaridits-inflammations of the linings of the heart lungs along with pain when breathing, kidney abnormalities including an abnormal quantity of urine protein or clusters of cellular elements (casts), brain irritation, blood count abnormalities, immunological disorders-abnormal results of such tests as Anti-DNA, or anti-Sm, testing positive for antinuclear antibody.

Other tests could include a Sedimentation Rate, blood chemistry and evaluation of body fluids, as well as tissue biopsies. SLE can also cause one to enter early menopause

Treatments of systemic lupus erythematosus include get more rest during the active phases of the disease. Inadequate sleep is key in the progression of fatigue in SLE patients. A doctor must focus on poor sleep and the effects of depression, insufficient exercise and patient’s personal care coping abilities on their over-all health. Drugs that are used to relieve symptoms of SLE include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that help muscle, joint and other body tissue pain.

Corticosteroids are stronger in lessening inflammation and restoring the ability to function when SLE is active and they are helpful when internal organs are involved. They can be delivered in a number of forms but they have some serious side effects in long-term use at high doses. Thinning skin and bones, weight gain, infections, diabetes, facial puffiness, cataracts and even death (necrosis) of large joints are also possible. There is a wide variety of types of drugs used to treat mild to severe cases of SLE.

Symptoms of Early Menopause

Lupus and early menopause have some common symptoms. Sleep problems, heart palpitations, headaches and hot flashes that can occur in lupus and the patient not are menopausal. Irregular periods and bleeding are classic signs of beginning menopause. If you are a woman with lupus menstruation can continue but as has been mentioned become irregular and cease altogether catapulting you into early menopause. Other symptoms of it include appetite changes, weight gain, body aches, and mood swings all of which can also occur in lupus.

Early menopause in lupus can occur as a result of the disease itself. It can also be a result of the medications used to treat lupus. It can also be a result of heredity as opposed the disease or treatments of the disease.

Treatment of these symptoms can be HRT- hormone replacement therapy, anti-depressants, and anti-inflammatories. These treatments can have some very serious side effects such as increased risk for heart attack and some cancers. Most women seek to avoid these side effects and turn to natural treatments such as herbal supplementation.

Herbal supplements may also include vitamins such as B-complex and C vitamins and minerals such as magnesium and zinc. In order to get the highest quality supplement there should be no fillers or preservatives. The ingredients will have had the molecular path tested at the molecular level and their interactions evaluated as well. Only standardized herbal extracts are used and they are made to meet pharmaceutical grade standards. This all helps to guarantee top quality and consistent dosing from capsule to capsule.

Conclusion

Lupus is an autoimmune disease that can attack the skin discoid lupus erythematosus and systemic lupus erythematosus that affects the joints and internal organs. It is a connective tissue disease. Either the disease itself or the medications that are used to treat lupus can put a woman into early menopause. A doctor’s examination will help to determine the best course of treatment including the possible benefits of herbal supplementation.

Developing Soccer Speed – 5 Ways to Use Hills to Run Faster

Using hills to run faster will work if you do it properly. If you go about hill running for conditioning you may end up with overuse injuries. Less is better than more. Any type of hill running should be completed after your warm up and before your soccer training. Hill training should not be done at the end of training when you are tired!

Ideally you want the hill at a 45 degree angle and you need five to ten yards. Remember less is better than more.

Here is the progression of exercises:

1) Crawl up the hill for five to ten yards -do this five times and each time increase the speed.

2) Walk up the hill for five to ten yards with a forward lean from the ankles – five times

3) Walk up the hill for five to ten yards with a lean from the ankle with a partner giving you some resistance by holding you at the waist or using a beach towel around your waist

4) Run up the hill with your partner giving you some resistance. Focus on driving the leg into the ground. Rest for 30 seconds to a minute and repeat.

5) Run up the hill for 5 to 10 yards as fast as you can. Rest for 45 seconds to a minute then repeat.

If you have a partner you can switch up in between runs for exercises 3 and 4.

After the exercise do some light foot work with the ball for recovery and preparation for the day’s soccer training.

These exercises force you to drive the leg into the ground by using your glutei muscles.

This exercise may be put into your training once or twice a week with a 48-72 hour break in between. These are specific strength drills for developing soccer speed.

Wake Up! You’re Living in a Trance! How to Break Out and Live!

Wake up! We are all living in a trance, or multiple situation-specific trances, all of our lives. Many of these trances aren’t beneficial in our lives. They hold us back, keep us stuck in little worlds of our own creation. Yes, you are living your life in a trance. How can I make this statement?

Easy. We are born into this world with a personality, yes, but without beliefs. A belief is “the psychological state in which an individual holds a proposition or premise to be true,” or “Mental acceptance of a claim as truth; Something believed,” (definitions from en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Belief). The psychological state in which mental acceptance happens is the state of trance, or hypnosis. In trance or hypnosis, the critical factor of the mind is bypassed, or pushed aside, so that the information or message units presented to the mind are accepted. During the childhood years, the critical factor of the mind is undeveloped and therefore a great majority of your beliefs are formed during childhood. The values and behaviors that you see around you, or are told about by parents, siblings, teachers and peers are accepted much more easily and rapidly. The mind abhors a vacuum, and as the young mind encounters new situations, it requires a belief to be in place in order to know how to function within that situation, so it quickly accepts the dominant belief in its environment.

So, your beliefs were formed in trance, and because they anchor your thoughts and emotional states to that time when they were formed, you operate in a level of trance every time you function within that belief, or set of beliefs.

An example is a person who grows up in a household where money is tight. All around her, she is receiving messages of lack, of how difficult money is to obtain, how important it is to choose security over risk, of how inherently dangerous the world is because of how difficult it is to accumulate wealth. When that child becomes an adult, she may desire to be wealthy, but every time she considers taking an action to bring more wealth into her life, actions that often involve risk, her beliefs about money will come into effect, taking her back into the trance state that was in effect when those beliefs were formed, and she will find herself having all manner of troublesome feelings such as self doubt, depression, remorse about decisions involving risk, and she will consistently sabotage her desired success by not following through with actions to create wealth, pulling up short, continually returning to her comfort zone which says that security, even a security with a small amount of money, is preferable to taking risk. The beliefs in play may be stated as, “risk is bad,” “it’s better to be secure,” “money is hard to come by.”

Contrast this person to someone who is raised in an affluent family, and grows up familiar with entrepreneurialism in an environment comfortable with risk. She may grow up accumulating beliefs such as “every risk you take brings you more success,” “when things don’t work out as planned, you learn something valuable that gets you even further,” and “there is always more than enough money.” This woman will feel completely secure in leveraging her money and taking risks, fully expecting that every experience will bring more benefit and wealth into her life.

These two women could even be twins raised in different families, because while some elements of temperament are heritable, beliefs are not. Beliefs are a result of your environment. And both of these women are behaving in accordance with their beliefs, therefore they are both operating in trance. The problem is not beliefs, the problem is not the trance that they were formed in and anchored to. The problem is that we don’t get the chance to opt-in. We don’t get to choose and select the beliefs that will help us to live up to our potential and have the most amazing lives we can.

And while trances and beliefs (often called self-limiting beliefs) about money and abundance are much discussed, beliefs can be beneficial or detrimental in any area of your life, from your ability to learn, to your ability to form and keep good relationships, or to be fit and healthy, and on and on.

Is there an area in your life where your actual results are falling short of what you’d like to see? If so, then that is probably an area where you are carrying limiting beliefs, e.g., operating in a trance, that is not effective or beneficial to you. The way out of this situation is the same way that you got in. The mechanism that formed these beliefs is what you should use to create new beliefs to replace them, and that mechanism is hypnosis. Your actions will always be congruent with your beliefs, so use hypnosis to create beliefs that will enable you to have the life you have.

The method I suggest for this is a system, which starts by choosing an area of your life to improve, a specific goal. Then you enter the process by focusing on the success you already have in your life, which increases your self esteem and confidence to reach further. Then, address the specific fears you have that have blocked you from taking action toward your goals, and increase your motivation to reach those goals. After accomplishing these steps, your subconscious mind will be more ready to release the old, self limiting beliefs. You can’t just do that first, you have to lay the groundwork, the foundation, that makes releasing and replacing the old belief desirable to your subconscious. The final steps are to choose new beliefs that support your goals and to use holographic visualization to create the context for the new beliefs–basically recreating the process that created the released beliefs, but this time you select your beliefs.

Following these steps is a process, and should be done over a period of time that feels right, but not so slowly that homeostatic resistance has a chance to un-do any gains. I suggest a system of mental reprogramming over the course of a month to six weeks as ideal for most. As with any change, this system relies on a combination of conscious action paired with subconscious messages, and reinforcement through repetition over time, for its success.

Hair Straighteners: Titanium Vs Ceramic

Hair straighteners, or flat irons, have been around for over a decade now, and many different types have been produced in that time. Differences in style, heat settings, heating technology and most notably, plate materials. The plates, or blades, are the point of contact between the hair and the hair tool, and therefore, can be of huge significance when it comes to how your iron performs. Up through the late 1990’s, Teflon or aluminum plates were pretty much the common material. As innovation progressed, hair tool developers realized that these materials cause hot spots, and damage to the hair due to the uneven heat distribution.

In the early 2000’s, a ceramic coating was placed on the aluminum plates. This coating provided a more even heat distribution, and less damaging effects to the hair. It wasn’t long before some companies started developing solid ceramic plates. The solid ceramic plates have great heat distribution, but are brittle, and over time can crack. These cracks end up snagging the hair and give the user a terrible hair straightening experience.

Although ceramic is still being used in many large brands such as CHI and Conair, it has its issues. The manufacturing process for ceramic coated plates is not high tech. Molten ceramic material is sprayed like paint, onto the contact surface of the aluminum plates. The plates are then kiln-heated to cure. The small layer of ceramic that is approximately 0.2mm in thickness, doesn’t provide an extreme amount of protection from the heaters within the aluminum plates. Also, the difference in properties from the aluminum and ceramic cause the materials to detach over time, and eventually the coating rubs off, giving you essentially, an old-fashioned aluminum hair straightener from the 1990’s.

In the mid 2000’s, companies like Ozon and Babyliss discovered the properties of titanium could make a better flat iron. By 2011, titanium had become the newly accepted professional choice by hairdressers. The titanium plates widely used today are not 100% solid titanium, but rather, an alloy commonly referred to as nano titanium, which has just enough of the element to get the desired properties, without getting the undesired ones. Titanium plates last for years, never crack or scratch, and outlive the iron itself. The composition of the plates also give the plates the most even and responsive heat distribution, giving no hot spots, and allowing the iron to glide smoothly through the hair.

In conclusion, in the battle vs. ceramic and titanium flat irons, titanium wins without question. Ceramic irons perform as well as a titanium iron, for the first month or so, but after time, the plates, whether solid or coated, give way, and eventually snag and damage hair.

A Vacation is Not an Excuse to Stop Your Workout

If you’re looking for an self-justification to skip your weight training exercise, vacations and business trips won’t hack it. You can keep your muscles hard no matter where you go, whether your destination is Caribou, Maine, or the Mongolian desert.

Of course, you may not constantly discover a health club with 15 shoulder machines and aromatherapy baths. Sometimes the conditions will be better then others, but you should constantly make do with what you have.

It is definitely worthwhile to maintain your strength training while traveling. No matter if it is just a quick workout once a week it can assist you in keeping the muscle you strive so hard to obtain. Remember these helpful hints on strength training while on vacation:

While it may seem obvious, the easier thing you can do to make your strength training easier is to lodge somewhere with a gym on property. Most average priced hotels will only have a few machines and treadmills available, however some more expensive hotels and resorts have full gym and spa staff to treat your every need.

Sometimes you are unable to find a hotel with a gym on property, if this happens you can alway expand out to the local area. Try looking in the phone book or asking the front desk where the closest gym is. You can expect the price to be anywhere from $10 through $55, depending on the location and services offered.

Do not stray from the workouts and equipment that you are comfortable with. Travel training is not the time to test your limits of experiment with a new machine. If you can’t resist the urge to try something new, you will want to talk to an employee of the gym first to get instruction. Either way, most gyms have some kind of legal paper that you must sign that pretty much states that any injury your experience is nobodys fault but your own.

There are other benefits of using a neighborhood gym besides choosing one that fits you. You have the opportunity to meet the locals from a new town and find out a bout their culture, locals joints, and where to not go.

If you are in an area that does not offer any sort of formal gym, you can always rely on packing an rubber exercise band. these are compact and lightweight so they can travel anywhere with you.

If you happen to be visiting a beautiful part of the world, you should consider working out outside. Even if you cannot find a health club or other suitable place that offers exercise equipment you can always use your own body weight to exercise. Push-ups and squats can get your muscles burning just as well as weights.

Use Of Hydroquinone For Melasma And Pigmentation – Is The Remedy Worse Than The Problem?

Melasma is an uncomfortable condition suffered by many women of all skin types and colors. Often the first recommendation for sufferers of hyperpigmentation and melasma is to buy an over the counter bleaching skin cream for skin whitening containing hydroquinone. Hydroquinone is the skin whitening agent of these creams.

Unfortunately, what most women using these skin bleaching products don’t know is that they are unsafe enough to have been banned in many places, including parts of Europe and all of Asia, due to the belief that higher concentrations are carcinogenic. Hydroquinone has been associated with severe side effects, some effecting the liver, kidney and thyroid. In some cases it may cause a permanent black discoloration called exogenous ochronosis.

Fortunately there are many natural known ingredients that can be used to lighten the skin as effectively as hydroquinone, without the health risks. Some of these ingredients include combinations of Arbutin, Vitamins A, C and E, and a brand new natural discovery called Lumiskin.

Arbutin is nature’s own hydroquinone. Made from the bearberry tree, it can be safely used for a long period of time. A safe and effective skin lightener and antioxidant, Arbutin reduces free radical damage that ages the skin, and protects from the sun’s UV rays. It also has antibacterial properties.

Vitamins A, C and E are a powerful combination when used together in skincare. Vitamin A is an antioxidant that helps promote healthy skin. It improves pigmentation by eliminating age spots, firming skin and fighting wrinkles. It also helps exfoliates dead surface skin cells. Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant which lightens skin by inhibiting melanin. It works against the damaging free radicals that dull the skin. Vitamin E is also a powerful antioxidant that is known to be very good for the skin. When Vitamin E is combined with Vitamin C, each are made more effective.

Lumiskin is an amazing new antioxidant product made from Chilean tree bark. It helps prevent future skin discoloration by inhibiting stress receptors. Lumiskin controls melanin to effectively lighten complexions, make skin color more even, and makes skin more radiant.

Melasma and skin pigmentation are difficult problems. They can be hard to treat effectively, and without the proper knowledge sufferers may turn to bleaching creams containing hydroquinone. However, there are well-formulated products available made with combinations of Arbutin, Vitamins A,C and E, and Lumiskin, and other effective natural ingredients. Some powerful skin lightening ingredients can even be found at your grocery store and solutions can be made at home. With the right knowledge, sufferers of melasma can get safe and powerful results without resorting to hydroquinone.

One guy I spoke with the other day had a row with his girlfriend and he cut the power cable clean off from her GHD’s in a fit of anger! Rather him than me, it doesn’t bare thinking about what she my cut off in revenge! I heard of one girl’s irons sparking at the back of the GHD irons, and others just cut out all together, in these cases the GHD repairs companies have to open them up and change some parts such as the thermal fuse or r8 resistor.

Hey any if you are pretty handy with a screwdriver then many of these GHD spares and repairs guys will sell you a cable or a thermal fuse for you to do a GHD repair in the comfort of your own home. Cables are normally only a few quid and if you have a soldering iron in the tool box you may be able to fit a GHD thermal fuse (common fault with the mk3) or GHD R8 resister (common fault with MK4).

Top 10 Hair Dying Mistakes

Whether you want to want to get rid of that gray hair or you just want to have a new look, dying is a good way to achieve it. Unfortunately, hair dying entails consequences that may damage and dry your hair when used inappropriately. The selected color of your dye should blend with the original color of your hair and eyebrows and to enhance your features. Experimenting is good, but dyes can be rough on your hair when used frequently. Although it is best to dye at a professional salon or stylist, it is much cheaper at home with the same creative effect. Before you see the top 10 hair dying mistakes, it is important to have an understanding of the different types of hair dye that are available so you can put them in context.

Types of Hair Dye

1. Permanent hair dye

While dying your hair permanantly is, by some, considered in and of itself a mistake, the obvious benefit is that it lasts for a considerable time. As the hair grows, it is applied to the roots. It contains ammonia and peroxides, which can possibly cause dryness and damage. Exposure to the sun and salt water will cause the color to fade. That’s why in order to maintain the color, it is best to cover your hair by using a hat or bandanna when going outside.

2. Long-lasting Semi-permanent

As the name implies, has the longest life remaining even after more than 20 washes, depending on the brand.

3. Semi-permanent

These have the shortest lifespan for dyes. After 6-12 washes, the color will start to fade. This is recommended for first-time users and those who want to experiment with colors.

How to dye your hair safely and professionally:

– Separate hair into two quadrants. Then clip each part.

– Wear plastic gloves while mixing dye solution. Follow the directions written on the box.

– Squeeze a small amount of coloring into one quadrant. Streak thin stripes of color over the whole area of the quadrant. Put a clip on the colored part.

– Repeat the process after you have completed coloring the four quadrants.

– Consult instructions on how long you should leave it. Add a couple of minutes of wait to that of the suggested treatment time.

– Put on left over color mix to the entire head after a few minutes.

– Rinse with cold water.

Top 10 hair dying mistakes!

– Number 10: Applying dye to dirty, tangled hair

Deep condition your hair a month before dying to maintain color. Be sure your hair is relatively clean before applying. Trim hair especially dry and split ends to even out color. Hair should be slightly damp when dye is applied.

– Number 9: Using hair conditioner before you dye

Do not condition your hair a few hours before applying hair dye, shampooing will do the trick. Your hair needs to be free of free radicals such as dirt and oil as much as possible.

– Number 8: Choosing hair dye based on what the model on the box looks like

Consult the local salon or stylist on what colors would look best on you. The hair dye you choose should have the same tone as your skin color.

– Number 7: Forgetting to check for allergic contents

After choosing a brand, apply a tiny amount of hair dye near your neck or behind your ear to see if irritation, redness, inflammation, allergy, hair loss or any bad reactions occur. Wash the affected area right away if this happens. Remember the instructions carefully. Do the patch test 1-2 days before hair dye application.

– Number 6: Doing your entire head without testing a small amount of your hair first

Do a strand test by applying a bit of dye to a few stands of your hair to see if you got the right color.

– Number 5: Staining your skin or clothes

Protect your skin by wrapping a towel around your neck as the dye can irritate your skin or affect your clothes. Gloves should be used and must be included in a hair dye kit. Applying petroleum jelly or cream around your ears and neck part will keep off stains. Wipe off oil after shampooing. If you do happen to stain your skin, don’t worry, rubbing alcohol will remove dye stains from your skin

– Number 4: Picking a color that does not fit with your natural hair color

Pick a color one shade lighter when dying your roots. This will make the transition from your colored hair back to your natural hair color graceful without roots that are a completely different color sticking out. Obviously, this rule does not apply if you are dying your hair a completely different color than your natural hair color.

– Number 3: Losing hair

After dying, always rinse with cold or tepid water to avoid your own hair from falling out.

– Number 2: Over-dying hair

If you did not achieve the desired effect, using Liquid Tide can correct this. A couple of days of use will lighten the color until your hair returns to the original color. Instead of over-dying, do touch-ups every four to five weeks to keep your hair color picture perfect.

– Number 1: Dying eyebrows and eyelashes

Never use hair dye on eyebrows and eyelashes! Ask for medical help when dye gets into your eye.

Can You Make Your Penis Larger by Masturbating? Find the Natural Ways to Increase Penis Size!

Men of different color, status or age have one thing in common. They ask if there’s a surefire way to get a longer or bigger penis. If it’s not that, the questions are usually the methods to achieve longer erections or how to please their lover. But one thing has also been in men’s thoughts, albeit pushed back to oblivion as they age. That question is: can you make your penis larger by masturbating?

Such questions are perfectly understandable. It goes back to puberty where teenage boys do masturbate a lot due to raging hormones. These private pleasures are also brought about by those wonderful discoveries and explorations of their body and its reactions to imaginings about sex. In this stage of life, the penis grows from the willie size to over five inches! Hence, many men beyond puberty entertain the possibility that masturbation does make their sexual instrument longer and bulkier.

But really, can you make your penis larger by masturbating?

The answer is yes!

Now, while this would sound like I have a lot of explaining to do, it’s really simple. Masturbating, when done properly, is actually an exercise that is good for the penis. There are actually different techniques that any man could do to lengthen his penis. While it does give you pleasure like masturbation or sex, these exercises have been proven effective. With the right grasps, massage-like routines and stretching of certain penis areas, you regulate blood flow, ease and rejuvenate the muscles and train your instrument for longer erections.

So how can you make your penis larger by masturbating?

The most common technique would be stretching. You simply hold your semi-erect penis and then massage it towards the head. You could also grasp the whole rod and then slowly turn it to different directions, stopping at one direction and counting 30 seconds or so before moving on to the opposite angle. While you direct your penis at one direction, you also massage your penis like you’re masturbating as this stimulates the membranes within it.

Another masturbation-like exercise uses a clamp or “cock ring”. Once your penis gets into a semi-erection, clasp the base area to trap the blood for 15 to 30 seconds. This allows tissues to stretch that leads to growth.

Then there’s the Kegel technique. It’s the closest to actual masturbation as an exercise, except that when you’re about to ejaculate, you hold back the release. Doing so, the erection time is lengthened and the surrounding tissues are stretch for a good period. This then leads to growth.

So now, can you make your penis larger by masturbating? Find out for yourself!
