Men’s Health and Wellness
Health is much more than the absence of disease!
We have essentially the same DNA structure as our ancestors, but our lifestyle has changed in many ways. We encounter different stressors, our diet has changed, and we are exposed to more environmental toxins.
THE AGING PROCESS AND HORMONE BALANCE: Unlike our ancestors, our lifespan might
extend into our 9th decade and beyond. As we age, natural transitions such as hormone
changes can affect how we feel on a physical, emotional, and mental level. Bioidentical
hormone replacement therapy can have a positive impact on your health by treating
symptoms that naturally occur as you age.
As men age, they gradually progress through a natural transition. Andropause (male
menopause) relates to the slow but steady reduction of the production of hormones. This change can occur between the ages of 40 and 55, although this can vary widely. You may
have a hormone imbalance if you have noticed any of the following:
- Concentration issues
- Decreased enjoyment of life
- Decreased libido
- Decreased strength or endurance
- Deterioration in ability to play sports
- Lack of energy
- Moodiness or irritability
- Unusual sleepiness
- Weak erections
- Weight gain
Thyroid hormone affects every metabolic function in your body. Low thyroid can cause forgetfulness, depression, fatigue, muscle aches, weight gain, low libido, sensitivity to cold, dry skin, and hair loss.
Hormone balance is an integral part of treatment. Hormone balance can be achieved through nutritional and lifestyle changes, and if needed, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Testosterone replacement can also be part of this hormone balance therapy. Men’s wellness could be affected by low testosterone and we offer many natural testosterone replacement options to help improve men’s health.
Weight management and body composition is dependent on having balanced hormones, a healthy digestive tract, a balanced diet and an awareness of food allergies.
