Men's Health

Statistically, men visit their doctors less often than women and have fewer tests ordered. When they do, it’s often to check specific complaints rather than have routine tests.

“If it isn’t broken then don’t fix it”.  Some men will stick to this motto for everything, including their own bodies. But your body won’t always tell you when something is broken. There are many silent ailments that can cause big health problems. Luckily, basic health prevention education can go a long way.

Approach

For men, growing older can be a time of change–perhaps shifting family responsibilities, a career change, retirement, traveling or starting a new hobby. Men can proactively take care of their health as they age with annual physicals, a well-balanced diet, exercise, and by following preventative health strategies from a integrative health team.

Solutions

Nutrition
Good nutrition is the foundation for all health concerns and lasting wellness. What we put into our bodies on a regular basis provides the building blocks for our cells and tissues. For example, research has linked prostate disease to an inflammatory response within the body. For many men, prostate symptoms are greatly improved with a basic anti-inflammatory diet.
Personalized exercise regime
Exercise does far more than just speed up metabolism—it can actually reduce and slow ageing inside and out of the body. Research shows that working out can help your brain, bones, heart, and skin look and act younger.
Professional vitamin-herbal supplements
The healing properties that are found in herbs have been an essential part of restoring health for centuries.  Vitamins and herbs are helpful for a variety of conditions, but are particularly useful when rebalancing gender specific health issues. Herbs have the power to regulate hormones, improve mood, boost libido and enhance overall stamina and vitality.
Hormone balancing with BHRT
As we get older, our hormone levels decline, causing a reduction in energy, mood, sex drive and memory. Low hormones also frequently lead to insomnia and impaired ability to lose weight. Bio-identical hormone therapy replaces the necessary hormones that your body is now producing at a slower rate, returning your body to optimal health.
