Providing Natural Solutions for Male Sexual Health
There's not much we can count on in life, but if there's one guarantee, we can bet that our bodies change as we grow older. That's especially true for men as they age. One moment you're partying at the club, waking up refreshed, and hitting the gym. The next moment, getting out of bed is a chore. You're sore in places you never thought before, and hangovers don't just go away after a hot shower and a big breakfast.
And while sore joints and backaches can be treated with aspirin and ice, other signs of aging aren't as easy to treat. Of course, we're talking about challenges in getting and maintaining erections needed to satisfy your partner. At the extreme, we all know it as erectile dysfunction or ED for short but long before full ED, there are warning signs that things aren't working as they used to work. Hearing the ED word sends shivers down most men's spines. When you think about it, that makes sense - being unable to perform when you need to most is a scary thought.
If you're beginning to suffer from ED or male performance issues or you've been dealing with performance issues for some time, it may seem like nobody has any solutions or even really understands how these issues can impact your life and sense of well-being. However, ED of varying degrees is very common. More than 18 million men suffer from the condition in the U.S. Unfortunately, many of those men hide their performance issues without ever addressing them. If you're one of those men, and it feels like you're stuck in a rut with no help, we're here to tell you you're not alone. Proactive Wellness Centers, PLC is here to provide you with a long-lasting solution to help you regain confidence and perform like you used to.
Additionally, many men including the so-called "bio hackers" are using our treatments to PREVENT the performance decline in the first place. Why wait for the inevitable when you can implement strategies to prevent the decline in the first place.
The Proactive Wellness Center Difference
Our programs are all about reversing and slowing the aging process, preventing disease, and treating chronically ill patients. We utilize a three-pronged approach:
- 1. We equip patients with the knowledge required to take charge of their health and achieve optimal well-being.
- 2. We focus on disease prevention by providing a thorough evaluation using comprehensive diagnostics including the patient-supplied information.
- 3. We work with patients to implement a rejuvenation program consisting of various science-based treatments that reduce cellular degeneration, promote tissue regeneration and healing, and slow down the aging process.
We consider every individual as physiologically unique. As such, we don't subscribe to a "one-size-fits-all" approach. Instead, our programs focus on a customized approach, leveraging genetics and advanced testing, utilizing advanced therapeutics like Gainswave and addressing risk factors that, if avoided or modified, could have beneficial effects for reducing many chronic conditions that men suffer from year-round.
Our vision is to provide the latest in scientifically-validated therapies for reversing the aging process, preventing chronic disease, and optimizing health. For men whoare just starting to have challenges, or who have erectile dysfunction, or for the biohackers that just want everything optimized, one of those proven therapies is GAINSWave therapy in Chantilly, VA

What is GAINSWave Therapy?
If you have ED or even a minor decline in sexual performance, there's a good chance you've already seen your primary care doctor. You've talked to them about the issues you're facing. And, if they're like many doctors, they prescribed you some pills and sent you on your way. Unfortunately, going this route doesn't do much to solve erectile dysfunction - you're just putting a band-aid on the problem. Plus, you're putting strange chemicals in your body via a "little blue pill" that may cause adverse side effects.
At the end of the day, you need a real-deal solution to ED, not a quick fix. The good news? A safe, non-invasive, injection-free answer to your problems exists. It's called GAINSWave therapy, and according to recent studies, it has shown an 85-92% success rate for mild to moderate cases of erectile dysfunction.
Reports from men who have used GAINSWave therapy in Chantilly, VA report the following benefits:
- Stronger, Longer Lasting Erections
- Improved Sexual Pleasure
- More Blood Circulation and Flow
- Better Girth and Length
- Less Rest Needed Between Orgasms
- Enhanced Intimacy in the Bedroom
Unlike many ED treatments, you don't have to worry about surgery or drugs when you choose GAINSWave. This revolutionary treatment uses acoustic wave technology, also called pulse wave therapy, instead of surgery or pills, which helps to rebuild blood flow to the penile region, thereby boostings erectile strength and, by proxy, confidence.
But the benefits of GAINSWave don't end there. This therapy also breaks up micro plaques and boosts nitric oxide, which forms new blood vessels and collagen. That's exciting news for men suffering from Peyronie's disease, which is another condition specific to male sexual health.

What Makes GAINSWave Therapy in Chantilly, VA Work?
With time, men's blood flow decreases, sensitivity isn't what it once was, and blood vessels start to get thinner or even partially or fully blocked. With GAINSWave, high-frequency, low-intensity shockwaves rejuvenate areas of the penis that have suffered with age. For instance, micro plaques are removed, new blood vessels form, and blood flow increases. According to several clinical studies, enhanced blood flow from GAINSWave translates to more sustainable, rigid erections in 75% of men.
Though males in America are only beginning to realize the benefits of GAINSWave, it's a treatment that has been used for over a decade around the world. Backed by science and proven to rejuvenate vasculature in male erections, GAINSWave works without any pain or recovery time. In fact, it's possible to pop into Proactive Wellness Centers on your lunch break for a therapy session.
Proactive Wellness Centers' GAINSWave treatments feature:
- Low-Intensity Pulse or Shockwaves
- All Natural
- No Needles
- No Pills
- No Pain
- No Surgery
- No Recovery Time
- Quick Procedures
Because this procedure is needle, surgery, and drug-free, most men don't have to suffer through costly insurance claims or unsightly scarring. With GAINSWave and our comprehensive and personalized ED treatment plans, all you need to focus on is enjoying life, knowing your erectile dysfunction is a thing of the past.
Who Are the Best Candidates for Gainswave Therapy in Chantilly, VA?
If you're a man over the age of 30 and want to optimize your performance or if you are suffering a decline in this area, GAINSWave may be for you. That's even more true if other treatments never worked. For many men, those unsuccessful solutions include pills like Viagra. If prescription pills don't solve your ED problems, GAINSWave is a great option to consider. Academic studies show that shockwave therapy is successful where PDE5 inhibitors (like Viagra or Cialis) fall short.
In fact, many urologists now consider shockwave therapy the greatest revolution in ED treatment in over a decade. Even men without erectile dysfunction use GAINSWave as a preventative therapy to keep their bedroom performance strong and avoid compromised blood vessels.
Some of the key benefits of GAINSWave procedures over other ED treatments include:
- No Drugs
- Backed by Clinical Studies and Extensive Medical Research
- Vast Record of Success
- FDA-Approved for Enhanced Sexual Wellness
- Available at Proactive Wellness Centers, PLC

Other Treatments and Programs from Proactive Wellness Centers, PLC
As the premier wellness clinic in Virginia and the metro D.C. area, we provide patients with a comprehensive list of treatments to slow the process of aging and treat chronic conditions. Our vision is to provide the latest in scientifically-validated therapies, like GAINSWave therapy in Chantilly, VA, for reversing the aging process, preventing chronic disease, and optimizing health.
Some of the most requested services we offer include:
Low-T Treatment for Men
While not as widely discussed as menopause is for women, andropause is very real for men just as menopause is significant for women. Our Low-T program for men focuses on the unique needs of men who are suffering from andropause or low testosterone. The Program Testosterone replacement when clinically indicated, optimization of DHEA and Pregenenolone, combined with nutritional guidance, nutritional supplementation recommendations to optimize your health. For men where Testosterone has declined, the Low-T program is a necessary complement to the Gainswave therapy.
Depending on lab results and patient goals, the program may also include peptides to help patients optimize their health and body composition. If you can identify with some of the symptoms below, you are likely experiencing low testosterone / andropause and are a candidate for laboratory testing to determine if BHRT is right for you.
Symptoms may include:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Decreased stamina
- Loss of physical agility
- Decreased mental sharpness
- Prostate problems
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women
Like men, women's bodies change as they grow older. Often referred to as menopause, this time in a woman's life can be stressful when the body uses energy differently, fat cells change, and hormones decline.
Many of the common symptoms and conditions associated with menopause are widely known and discussed, but there are many that are overlooked. At Proactive Wellness Centers, we've seen patients misdiagnosed with other illnesses that were actually caused by a decline in hormone levels. Our BHRT program for women focuses on the unique needs of women who are suffering from the common as well as the lesser-known symptoms of menopause.
Those symptoms may include:
- Hot Flashes
- Mood Swings
- Anxiety Attacks
- Vaginal Dryness
What are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are also known as natural hormones. They are substances with the same chemical makeup as the hormones produced in your body. Hormones are not drugs - they occur naturally and are found in every human on earth. BHRT replaces hormones at a physiologic level that is not harmful to the body.
If you're suffering through the symptoms of menopause, taking Midol isn't going to solve any problems. Fortunately, our BHRT program for women is designed to eliminate many menopausal symptoms. That way, we give women a chance to recapture their energy levels and vitality with drugs or surgery. Contact our office today to learn more about bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and how it can help you recapture the joys of your youth.
Bredesen-Protocol Strategies for Improving Brain Health
We believe that a healthy brain is paramount to overall well-being. Unfortunately, little is known about promoting brain health, lowering the risk of dementia, or stabilizing symptoms for patients experiencing early signs.
After much research, however, Dr. Lawson from Proactive Wellness Centers determined that the Bredesen protocol provides the best evidence-based approach to diagnosing and treating cognitive decline.
The approach, created by Dr. Dale Bredesen, is called ReCODE. This protocol involves multiple strategies to pinpoint specific health issues contributing to Alzheimer's Disease. The results of each strategy are measured using blood tests, dementia tests, cognitive evaluations, and other signs of overall health improvement. Now a Bredesen Certified doctor, Dr. Lawson now offers patients the full Bredesen ReCODE protocol to help them recover from debilitating illnesses like Alzheimer's.
Through this exciting approach, patients have shown dramatic improvements in cognitive function. In some cases, they achieve a reversal of symptoms and have even returned to work.
Proactive Wellness Centers' ReCODE program uses significant functional medicine experience and includes:
- Lifestyle Interventions
- Targeted Nutrients
- Therapeutic Diets
We're thrilled to add this promising Alzheimer's disease treatment for qualifying patients at Proactive Wellness Centers.
Chronic Disease Treatment
Long-term diseases like Lyme disease and Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) can ruin a person's life and often leave them afraid to leave the house. To make matters worse, these chronic diseases are often initially misdiagnosed, complicating treatment and leaving the patient depressed and hopeless. And while some medical prescriptions can help, many chronic disease sufferers live without finding true relief.
At Proactive Wellness Centers, our innovative doctors have developed a comprehensive treatment program to address chronic diseases like CIRS and Lyme disease. Generally, our Chronic Disease Treatment follows SSRP protocols as defined below:
- Stop the progression of the disease while strengthening the immune system
- Stabilize patients by balancing hormones and restoring energy
- Reverse cellular, mitochondrial, and other damages caused by chronic diseases, based on lab markers and/or symptomatic expression
- Prevent further development of the chronic disease processes
Our SSRP protocol provides patients with a promising program based largely on the emerging bodies of evidence in the chronic disease space. This evidence is supported by peer-reviewed medical journals, clinical studies, and even double-blind placebo-controlled studies.
When choosing chronic disease treatments for patients, our team of doctors and clinicians focus on safety and efficacy before anything else. Typical therapies associated with our chronic disease treatment programs include:
- IV Vitamin Therapy
- Targeted Nutritional Supplements
- Compassionate Care and Personalized Service from Qualified Doctors
As an integrative practice, we use conventional medications when indicated, especially in cases of underlying co-infections and other areas where traditional medication offers the best course of treatment.
If you're at your wit's end living with a chronic disease, call Proactive Wellness Centers today. Our innovative treatments and therapies may be the key you need to unlock a new, healthy life.

CHANTILLY, Va. (7News) — As school districts work to close the learning gap caused by virtual learning during the pandemic, one school in Fairfax County is seeing huge success with a program it implemented.
At Brookfield Elementary School in Chantilly, the school day is a little different for some students.
"Go, g-o, go," students said out loud.

The students who were impacted by virtual learning during the pandemic are participating in small groups to learn how to read and write.
“All of these students have learning gaps and it is to close that gap in their learning,” parent Jennings Johnston said.
“My youngest was a kindergartener so he missed those really basic foundation skills of learning ABC's and letter sounds," Johnston said. "Then, first grade learning how to use those sounds and all of that was virtual and it's really hard when you're doing it virtually.”
One student named Omar, who is now in second grade, says he struggled during virtual learning.
“Because I didn’t know how to use a computer,” Omar said.
He says this program is helping him.
“When I see the word, 'the,' I can spell it normally,” Omar said.

“Especially if they are second language learners, which we have a lot of children that speak a different language at home," Johnston said. "So, learning school in English online when you are speaking a different language at home also presents its challenges, as well."
The intervention class meets everyday and is funded by the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER).
“It is the consistency and the predictability in the lesson and the repetition,” Johnston explained.
One student, Justin, made two years of academic progress in just one year of work and graduated from the program.
"That’s the goal -- to close the gap from the pandemic and get them back on to grade-level-appropriate materials in their classroom," Johnston said.

The highly anticipated Washington Catholic Athletic Conference tournament championship game lived up to the billing Monday night as No. 11 St. John's (Washington, D.C.) shocks No. 3 Paul VI (Chantilly, Va.) 65-63 on a game-winning layup from four-star junior Daquan Davis with 3.8 seconds remaining.
The win marks the Cadets first WCAC conference title since 2016 and avenges a 69-60 loss to the Panthers last month.
St. John's (29-2) was paced by a balanced effort in the win as Davis finished with a team-high 21 points, seven rebounds and three assists, while top 50 junior Donnie Freeman finished with 16 points and and Harvard pledge Malik Mack tallied 15 points, eight assists and three rebounds.

The changes to the projected NCAA Tournament bracket today are all at the bottom. Rutgers, Wisconsin and Michigan lost on Thursday night, causing a shakeup around the cut-line.
Wisconsin's loss to Purdue at home -- the Badgers' sixth home loss of the season -- has knocked them off the bracket for now. Wisconsin is the first team out this morning, and as a result, have been replaced by Penn State, which also moved past Michigan after the Wolverines lost at Illinois in double overtime.
Rutgers dropped into the first four after a loss at last-place Minnesota, the Scarlet Knights' fourth Quad 3 loss of the season. In fact, the last three teams in are from the Big Ten.
After losing four of its last six, Purdue got its first win in a row Thursday night at Wisconsin. The Boilermakers also clinched the outright Big Ten championship, but that did not happen with the win -- the clinch came earlier in the evening when Michigan lost at Illinois.

Check out Palm's latest bracket, full field of 68 and all the teams on the bubble on the Bracketology hub.
The Big Ten standings have looked like an 11-car pileup behind the Boilermakers for most of the season. As of this morning, teams 2-12 in the conference standings are between 11-8 and 8-11. Six of those are tied for second place. Whomever is in charge of figuring out tiebreakers for the Big Ten tournament is going to have their hands full.
All of the major conference titles are set now except the ACC. UCLA was the first to clinch when Arizona lost to Arizona State on Saturday. Marquette was not the choice of many to win the Big East, but win it the Golden Eagles did. Alabama locked up the SEC with its win over Auburn on Wednesday. Bill Self won his 17th Big 12 championship in 20 years this week, which is just a remarkable run.
The ACC champion will be decided this Saturday when Pitt plays at Miami. Virginia can also tie for the title but does not win a tiebreaker with either the Panthers or Hurricanes.
Syracuse Basketball: 4-star big named to 1st team in top-flight D.C. league

Four-star power forward Donnie Freeman, who holds a Syracuse basketball offer and is one of the top big men across the country in the 2024 class, has produced a special junior season for his high school in our nation’s capital.
Recently, according to social media posts, the 6-foot-9 Freeman was named to the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference (“WCAC”) All-League first team for the 2022-23 season after placing on the second squad a stanza ago.
Freeman is a standout for St. John’s College High School in Washington, D.C., which has proven a top 20 group on a national scale for much of the current campaign.

St. John’s, as a member of the WCAC, suits up against some of the premier high-school teams nationwide, and Freeman has led the way for the Cadets in 2022-23. To that end, on Monday night, the No. 2 seed St. John’s captured the 2023 WCAC tournament title with a 65-63 upset of No. 1 seed St. Paul VI Catholic High School in Chantilly, Va.
According to Legit Sport Stats, in that championship bout, Freeman tallied 16 points and was 8-of-12 from the field.
Syracuse basketball four-star target Donnie Freeman is a top player in Washington, D.C.
I’ve tried to find statistics for Freeman’s full 2022-23 season, but I haven’t had any luck with that. That being said, he certainly has had a terrific 2022-23, given his placement on the WCAC All-League first team.
In grassroots basketball, Freeman suits up for one of the best AAU programs out there, the Washington-based Team Takeover in Nike’s EYBL league.
Multiple recruiting services rate him as a top-40 national player, a top-10 power forward and the No. 1 prospect in D.C. within the 2024 cycle.
Freeman, last November, didn’t include the Orange in his top five, which at the time consisted of Rutgers, Maryland, Iowa, LSU and Texas. But about a month later, he said that his recruitment remained open.
By extension, in late January, SyracuseOnSI publisher Mike McAllister reported that Syracuse basketball coaches were back in Freeman’s recruitment and aggressively pursuing him. It’s not entirely clear to me whether that is still the case, though.
Freeman was the first 2024 high-school player to land a scholarship offer from the Orange coaching staff, getting that offer in August of 2021 at the team’s annual Elite Camp.
I’ve said more than once that it’s vital for Syracuse basketball to land an official visit from Freeman if the ‘Cuse realistically hopes to prevail in his recruiting process. In January, he took an official visit to Alabama.
Throughout his recruitment, Freeman’s offer sheet has included LSU, Kansas State, Pittsburgh, Iowa, Texas, Rutgers, Marquette, Bryant, Ole Miss, VCU, Norfolk State, Alabama, Maryland, Georgetown, Virginia Tech, Xavier, George Mason and Old Dominion.
Four-star small forward Marcus Adams Jr. and his younger brother will not take an unofficial visit to Syracuse basketball this coming weekend for the Orange’s 2022-23 regular-season finale on Saturday, March 4, against Wake Forest at the JMA Wireless Dome.
Instead, from March 3 to March 5, the 6-foot-8 Adams will take an official visit to UCLA, he said on Twitter.
On February 28, Adams said that he was planning to announce a top three list of contenders still in the running for him, but he said on social media that he was delaying that news.
I will be taking a official Visit to Ucla this week March 3rd-5th.
— Marcus Adams Jr (@marcusadams21) February 28, 2023
I noted in a column not too long ago, that Adams, his younger brother (‘Cuse recruit Maximo Adams, a 2026 small forward), their parents and their AAU coach were eyeing an unofficial visit to the Hill for the Wake Forest game.
But now Marcus Adams Jr. will be making an official visit to the Bruins instead.
Syracuse basketball faces stiff competition for four-star small forward Marcus Adams Jr.
Adams, a top-65 player nationally according to 247Sports, is a standout at Narbonne High School in the Harbor City area of Los Angeles and suits up in AAU competitions for the Los Angeles-based Elev8 Elite, an Adidas-sponsored program.
He received a scholarship offer from the ‘Cuse last December. In late January, he took an official visit to Syracuse basketball. A few days later, Adams included the Orange in his top five, but he has said his recruitment remains open.
Due to Reasons I will not be Dropping a Top 3, will be delayed until now.

In recent interviews, Adams has also said that he is planning to unveil a new list of his top schools. Last weekend, he took an official visit to Kansas, which won the 2022 NCAA Tournament.
Media reports indicate that his trip to the Jayhawks went quite well. Cory DeSanti, the head coach of Elev8 Elite, has told me that Adams’ official visit to the ‘Cuse also went well, and Adams is high on the Syracuse basketball program.
That being said, if Kansas and UCLA end up being the biggest threats to the Orange winning out in Adams’ recruitment, this is a tough challenge for the ‘Cuse to overcome.
Not only did Kansas cut down the nets in early April of 2022, but the Jayhawks are poised to be a No. 1 seed in this spring’s Big Dance and possibly repeat as national champions.
The Bruins, meanwhile, are Adams’ hometown college squad. UCLA, similar to Kansas, is a significant contender for a No. 1 seed in the 2023 NCAA Tournament and clinched the Pac-12 Conference’s regular-season crown a couple of days ago.
In an article published on February 28 by 247Sports national analyst Dushawn London, Adams said that “if everything goes as planned,” he could make a college decision “in two weeks.”
I’ll of course continue to closely monitor Adams’ recruiting process. He has the option available to be a member of either the 2023 or the 2024 class.
