The following segment aired on Incredible Discoveries. Joining the show was Avena to discussdog health.

DR Marketing Group: If you’re a dog lover, you’re no stranger to their constant scratching and biting at their dry, itchy skin. It’s common canine behavior. But when is an itch more than just an itch? Your pet’s silly antics and wild behavior could be a bark for help.

Avena:Wintery weather, fleas and allergies are just some of the culprits behind itchy, flakey skin.Excessive itchiness known as pruritus can be dangerous for a dog, and scratching can stimulate inflammatory reactions in the skin and make the problem worse.

DR Marketing Group: No matter what the cause is, one thing is for sure – the itchiness is not just unpleasant, it can be downright unbearable. We’re going to put a stop to the dryness and discomfort once and for all because you’re about to discover a remarkable anti-itch, skin soothing system called AvenaPro6.It’s the best selling skin therapy for dogs in Japan, and AvenaPro6 quenches skin with clinically proven ingredients.

Avena:It’s designed to work in 3 ways that not only soothe skin on the surface, but actually repairs it.With AvenaPro6 you calm the itch, seal moisture with a protective barrier and restore healthy shine to a dull, dingy coat. It’s fast with visible results after just one bath.No other product does what AvenaPro does, and it rivals the other professional tonics that I use in my pet spa. Dogs love it.

DR Marketing Group: Does your dog constantly lick, bite and rub its fur for relief from itchy skin?

The other oatmeal shampoos and medicated shampoos and things really never seemed to work. What would you do to stop the itch? We’ve tried different creams, medicated soaps and even different dog food – everything.

Avena:Don’t just stop the itch.  Now you can prevent it and save thousands of dollars on pet products and vet bills. We introduce theAvenaPro 6, the only all natural skin soothing system for dogs that is best in show.

DR Marketing Group: What does AvenaPro 6 do?

Avena:Avena Pro 6 lavishes your dog tooth to tail with a blend of 3 oat technologies that calm the itch and irritation while deeply conditioning dogs’ allergy prone skin, leaving behind a beautiful, healthy shiny coat. The secret is triple oat complex, an exclusive blend of 3 oat therapy’s including the best skin reliever of all Avenanthramides which clinical studies show can dramatically relieve itchy, irritated skin, scaling and skin dander by 94%.

We know that Avenanthramidesare very powerful anti-inflammatories that are non-steroidal in nature.

DR Marketing Group: All natural Avena Pro 6 in so clean and easy to use and all you need to keep your lovable pet itch-free and looking like the top dog every day.It seems that whether it’s a pedigree or mutt, dogs still share one thing in common; they scratch like crazy. What causes this?

Avena:Dogs can be itchy for every reason that you and I are, and then some, depending on where they itch, bite, scratch, chew will often times give us reasons why. Their skin is the largest organ on their body, but it has very limited number of ways it can react.

DR Marketing Group: How can their skin get irritated?

Avena:Dryness, redness, and itchiness are all problems.  And did you know that a dog’s skin is actually thinner and more fragile than ours? So we really need to take very good care of that skin.

DR Marketing Group: There are lots of products out there that you can buy at convenience stores, pet stores, doggy spas, yet our dogs are still scratching uncontrollably. Why do these products fail us?

Avena:The problem is many of them address the itch in only one way – they only clean, only moisturize, or only medicate. You need to do all three to get to the root of the cause.

DR Marketing Group: What do most products do instead?

Avena:Many of them provide temporary relief by washing away the allergens and irritants, but they do not provide sustained skin relief by addressing the skin irritation and potential inflammation.  Some contain harsh chemicals that aggravate skin conditions, and even steroids.Steroids are often used to minimize allergic reactions and reduce skin inflammation but can have side effects such as increased appetite, change in mood and they can even depress the immune system.

DR Marketing Group: To think that some of the soaps that itch treatments we trust may actually expose our pets to these potential dangers is very frightening.How does Avena Pro 6 work?

Avena:Avena Pro 6 unleashes 3 different oat active emollients to address the underlying causes of itching called triple oat complex. One to calm the itch, another to protect and moisturize the skin and follicles and then another to clean the hair coat.

DR Marketing Group: Active oats – what does that mean?

Avena:It means they have powerful therapeutic properties.  It’s very unique.  They have the ability to actually get into the skin and restore health.

DR Marketing Group: What about shedding and pet dander? If you have kids, you don’t want them breathing in this dead skin.

Avena:Dander makes up a huge percentage of the junk floating in the air of our homes.  Clinically studies have shown that the Avena Pro 6 system decreases scaling and dander by more than 90%. Avena Pro 6 does all of this and then some.

One Act for God can Equal an Eternity of Prosperity, says Dr. Pierre Bennett

Dr. Pierre Bennett

Dr. Pierre Bennett

Presentation Solutions recently spoke with Dr. Pierre Bennett, the Pastor of God’s Luv International Ministries Church, who says that even the lowest citizen of a town can rise up and find himself worthy in God’s eyes.

Presentation Solutions: Thank you for joining us, Dr. Pierre Bennett.

Dr. Pierre Bennett: Thank you for having me.

Presentation Solutions: Dr. Bennett, you  speak of the story of Joshua quite often. Why is that?

Dr. Pierre Bennett: It’s because I feel that the story of Joshua has many good messages.

Presentation Solutions: Can you give us an example?

Dr. Pierre Bennett: Joshua was told to take the city of Jericho, which was considered a sinful city. Ironically, the only person he is told to spare within the confines of the town is the city’s prostitute.

Presentation Solutions: Why is that?

Dr. Pierre Bennett: Rahab the harlot – the prostitute – had enough faith in the Lord to hide His spies in her home. She was in danger herself. She had enough faith to make room for one of God’s people. She asked that she be spared.

Presentation Solutions: And she was?

Dr. Pierre Bennett: Yes in  one move, one touch, one act delivered her from her lifestyle prior to that event and was a blessing to her and to her entire family. Amen?

Presentation Solutions: Isn’t it amazing?

Dr. Pierre Bennett: God can use whomever He wants to. The least likely person will be the one that can be used for the mightiest task

Presentation Solutions: The passage in Joshua 6 verses 17:18 is: “Because she hid the messengers that we sent; and you, by all means abstain from the accursed things lest you become accursed when you take of the accursed things.” Is that right?

Dr. Pierre Bennett: Yes, that’s right.

Presentation Solutions: So, all because she was able to get past her fear and act  in faith, God was able to spare her from the destruction of the city…

Dr. Pierre Bennett: The moral of the this story  is that when you get right with God you will reap His prosperity.

Presentation Solutions: Yes, and in the story Joshua spares the prostitute and her entire family and then he curses any man who rises up and builds the city

Dr. Pierre Bennett: So not only did he take the city, and burn the city for everything that was not like God, but only kept the gold and silver, which went into God’s treasury.

Presentation Solutions: And the prostitute was spared to live and go on and live a better life than she had in the city of Jericho?

Dr. Pierre Bennett: Amen.

Presentation Solutions: Dr. Bennett this is all very interesting but I’m afraid that we’re out of time. Thank you for sharing your insight with us. We are sure our readers will find this inspirational.

Dr. Pierre Bennett: I certainly hope so. If it touches just one person then I have done God’s work.

Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD Gives an Overview of the Male Urological System

In Health and Beauty on February 9, 2012 at 12:18 pm

Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD

Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD has devoted his medical career to helping men (and women) with urologic problems. With a penile implant technique that has revolutionized the field, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD is often asked to train other physicians on implanting devices via a proven method that minimizes pain and recovery time. In order to understand the many disorders that can affect the male urological system, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD often explains to patients the various components that make up this complex system.

The male urinary and reproductive systems are closely correlated, with both removal of waste and sexual activity utilizing the same tracts. The urethra, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD explains, connects the bladder to the penis and is responsible for removing waste from the body. According to Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD, on its way from the bladder to the penis, the urethra runs through the prostate, which produces seminal fluid during sexual activity. Attached to the prostate is the seminal vesicle, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD states, which also works with the prostate to produce seminal fluid, both of which empty out through the urethra during ejaculation.

Sperm comes from the testes, traveling through a tube called the vas deferens. At the appointed time, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD explains, the vas deferens moves sperm through the male body to the seminal vesicle, where it then combines with the milky fluid manufactured by the prostate and seminal vesicle to form sperm-filled semen. Because this system is shared by both waste removal and reproduction, the Bulbourethral or “Cowper’s” Gland works during sexual activity to remove any urine from the urethra by secreting an alkaline fluid.

With so many factors at play, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD points out a variety of things that could malfunction. A urinary tract infection, common among members of both sexes, is caused by bacteria growing in the kidney, the bladder, or the tube that carries urine through the body, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD says. UTIs can be caused by sexual activity, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD explains, but this is more common in women than men. UTIs are usually treated with antibiotics, but mild cases can be counteracted by drinking unsweetened cranberry juice and vast amounts of fluids, especially water.

Kidney stones aren’t uncommon, especially among men, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD notes. Most frequently caused by a lack of enough water in the body, kidney stones can be excruciating for patients and in some men is a recurring problem. According to Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD, incontinence is another urologic problem, generally seen more in men who have had prostate surgery and women with a history of vaginal births. Prostate enlargement can also cause difficulty in urinating for men, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD states.

For men suffering infertility, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD points to veins that drain the testicles as the most common cause. These veins, called varicocele, can either dilate or swell, causing the temperature of the testicles to escalate. Low testosterone and ingestion of alcohol and certain medications can also be blamed, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD says.

For men suffering erectile dysfunction, sometimes the causes can be psychological. But as Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD points out, smoking and heart disease can create problems with the vascular and arterial systems, resulting in a loss of sexual function.

Dr. Paul E. Perito Answers Frequently Asked Questions about Erectile Dysfunction

In Health and Beauty on January 31, 2012 at 11:06 am
Dr. Paul E. Perito

Dr. Paul E. Perito

Since 2005, Dr. Paul E. Perito has been Coral Gable’s foremost expert on erectile dysfunction, with his minimally invasive penile implant technique revolutionizing the field. Dr. Paul E. Perito is with us today on the Interviewing-Experts Blog to answer questions he frequently sees regarding erectile dysfunction.

Presentation Solutions: Thank you for joining us today, Dr. Paul E. Perito. How does a patient know if he’s suffering from erectile dysfunction?

Dr. Paul E. Perito: Thank you for having me. If a man is having difficulty developing and maintaining an erection during sexual intercourse, it may be time to seek treatment.

Presentation Solutions: But there are varying degrees of erectile dysfunction, right, Dr. Paul E. Perito?

Dr. Paul E. Perito: In mild cases, a patient is able to attain an erection most of the time, say seven or eight times for every ten attempts. These cases may be treatable through medication or injections. A moderate case would be a patient who is successful about half the time, with a severe case being a patient who can achieve erection less than four attempts out of ten. Some severe patients are never able to achieve erection.

Presentation Solutions: How common is sexual dysfunction?

Dr. Paul E. Perito: It’s more common than most people realize. According to the National Institutes of Health, more than 30 million men in this country suffer from the condition, with it growing more likely with age. Almost half of all men older than 75 suffer from erectile dysfunction.

Presentation Solutions: Those are some pretty grim statistics, Dr. Paul E. Perito.

Dr. Paul E. Perito: Yes, but it’s important to note that no matter what a man’s age, erectile dysfunction can be treated.

Presentation Solutions: Dr. Paul E. Perito, are these statistics increasing as baby boomers age?

Dr. Paul E. Perito: Actually, yes. The number of patients seeking treatment is said to be double what it was ten years ago. As the demand increases, we’re trying to find new, less painful ways to treat patients, with shorter recovery time.

Presentation Solutions: What causes erectile dysfunction, Dr. Paul E. Perito?

Dr. Paul E. Perito:: Patients with diabetes often develop erectile dysfunction—in fact, statistically about half of all diabetes patients will suffer from erectile dysfunction within ten years of diagnosis. Smoking also seems to be connected to the problem, with the problem more prevalent among men who smoke more than a pack a day. And, of course, the likelihood of erectile dysfunction increases with age.

Presentation Solutions: Dr. Paul E. Perito, can certain medications cause erectile dysfunction?

Dr. Paul E. Perito:: Erectile dysfunction is a side effect of some IMISFC blood pressure medicine and some sedatives. Narcotics and alcohol can also be contributing factors. In these cases, we may recommend the patient discuss adjusting medications with his patient or refrain from drinking for a while to see if the problem clears up.

Dr. Paul Perito Discusses Newer, Safer Penile Implant Procedure for Correction of Erectile Dysfunction

In Health and Beauty, Information on January 13, 2012 at 12:25 pm
Dr. Paul Perito

Dr. Paul Perito

Dr. Paul Perito has pioneered a minimally invasive procedure for the surgical installation of the three-piece, inflatable penile implant. As a result, his patients report fewer post-procedure complications as well as a faster recovery time. Recently, Presentation Solutions had the chance to catch up with the doctor and find out more about what exactly makes Dr. Perito’s technique different from others.

Presentation Solutions: Dr. Paul Perito, we want to thank you for taking this time with us. We know you are busy.

Dr. Paul Perito: Not a problem. Erectile Dysfunction is a matter that needs an open discussion every once in a while.

Presentation Solutions: Can you give us an idea about what makes your way of performing a penile implant unique?

Dr. Paul Perito: One of the major differences is that I use an artificial erection; this offers me plenty of corpora to negotiate when I am placing stay sutures.

Presentation Solutions: And that is important?

Dr. Paul Perito: Yes, in the thousands of case I have done, I’ve never seen a case of glandular hypoesthesia or anesthesia. I believe this is because you can avoid the dorsal nerves with an artificial erection.

Presentation Solutions: Are there other differences?

Dr. Paul Perito: Many of the duplicitous steps have been eliminated allowing the case to move along thus diminishing tissue damage while lowering operative times.

Presentation Solutions: Does the penis have to be dilated to insert the implant?

Dr. Paul Perito: I don’t have to use dilation, the artificial erection accomplishes that; I believe that by not damaging the tissue with serial dilation that patients end up with more sensate glands after the procedure.

Presentation Solutions: We’ve heard that you place your reservoir in a different location than other surgeons?

Dr. Paul Perito: Yes. Traditionally a surgeon will place the reservoir tank in the behind the pubic bone. I use the area behind the abdominal wall or within the abdominal wall.

Presentation Solutions: Does that make the procedure safer?

Dr. Paul Perito: In my opinion, this technique keeps the patient safe from catastrophic bowel, bladder or vascular injuries. This is especially important in patients who have undergone previous radical prostatectomies.

Presentation Solutions: It all sounds so complicated. Does the surgery take long?

Dr. Paul Perito: I’ve completed the procedure in as little as 6 minutes. It is not a time intensive surgery.

Presentation Solutions: And what about recovery time?

Dr. Paul Perito: Most men report full sexual function in 4 weeks. The remaining cases report a 6 week wait time.

Presentation Solutions: Still, that sounds reasonable. Doctor, we thank you again for your time today. We are sure our readers have learned a lot from this.

Dr. Paul Perito: No problem. I would like to add this: Men looking into ED treatments need to arm themselves with information. They are welcome to visit the Perito Urology website at for education information and links to articles about ED and penile prosthesis.

Dr. Paul Perito is a 1988 graduate of the University Of Maryland School Of Medicine. His practice, Perito Urology, is considered one of the foremost Erectile Dysfunction treatments centers in the world. Since 2005, Dr. Paul Perito has successfully performed more than 3,000 penile implants, establishing him as a leader in the field. He has streamlined the procedure, making it not only more efficient, but safer, by the development and actualization of a minimally invasive approach. Aside from contributing extensively to medical publication libraries, Dr. Paul Perito heads the training center at Perito Urology where his technique is taught to an audience of surgeons from across the globe.

Advice from Dr. Naveed Fazlani: How to Know if You Have Sleep Apnea

In Health and Beauty on October 25, 2011 at 3:22 pm
Dr. Naveed Fazlani

Dr. Naveed Fazlani

Have you ever been in the room with a person that snores? Not just any snore, but the kind of snore that rattles the walls? A common myth, Dr. Naveed Fazlani has found, is that snoring is a sign of sleep apnea. But Dr. Fazlani is quick to point out to his patients that not everyone who snores has sleep apnea. Conversely, he adds, not everyone who has sleep apnea snores.

The misconception stems from the fact that snoring is often the issue that brings a sleep apnea patient into the office for a sleep study, Dr. Naveed Fazlani states. In fact, bed partners are often the ones who uncover a patient’s sleep apnea, he has found, as patients often fall back to sleep so quickly after waking that they do not realize they have the sleep disorder. He explains that sleep apnea causes a patient to wake up multiple times throughout the night with an inability to breathe or a choking feeling. This may or may not be accompanied by snoring loud enough to be disruptive to a bed companion, Dr. Fazlani says.

In order to learn how to spot sleep apnea, Dr. Fazlani believes the first step is to understand what causes the condition. He explains that sleep apnea occurs when the individual’s airflow is obstructed by having a small upper airway. This causes the patient to wake up, catch his or her breath, then generally fall right back to sleep.  According to Dr. Naveed Fazlani, because many sufferers fall asleep so quickly, they often have no idea they woke up numerous times during the night.

If a patient lives alone or cohabitants are heavy sleepers, sleep apnea may go undetected. This can be dangerous, Dr. Naveed Fazlani says, as the breathing obstruction causes long-term health impairments in addition to the daily dangers of loss of sleep. According to Dr. Fazlani, health risks can include heart problems, high blood pressure, and an increased risk of stroke. He explains this is thought to be because of the changes in heart rate and blood pressure that occur during sleep.

Feeling fatigued during the day could be an indication that you have sleep apnea, adds Dr. Naveed Fazlani, although fatigue can be traced back to a number of other issues, as well. Other symptoms he has seen include morning headaches, a feeling of dry mouth, sore throat, and awakening frequently during the night to urinate. If you are aware of waking up during the night feeling as though you are choking, Dr. Fazlani warns, this is definitely something to discuss with your physician.

Sleep apnea is diagnosed with a simple sleep study and treatable without surgery, Dr. Naveed Fazlani says. If you suspect you may have sleep apnea, Dr. Fazlani emphasizes the importance of contacting your medical professional as soon as possible for an appointment.

Dr. Naveed Fazlani is a founding partner of Midwest Medical Group, a practice that currently does a half a million dollars in outpatient revenue. A Cincinnati resident, Dr. Fazlani was named 2004 Physician of the Year by Mercy Hospital in Mt. Airy. For more information, visit
