Regular Check Ups

It is a commonly held belief that many men adopt the ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ approach to their health and avoid getting health checks on a regular basis.

Issues such as weight gain, blood pressure and cholesterol, prostate health and hair loss are some of the common issues that may be overlooked by many men as non specific health problems.

The First Signs

Stress, poor sleep, fatigue and weight gain are often the first signs that functional changes such as hormonal imbalance and nutritional deficiencies are occurring within the body.

By the age of 30 male hormone production has begun to decline. Unlike women, men do not experience clear symptoms as those seen in menopause, but research indicates that a decline in hormones especially testosterone and DHEA contributes to Male Andropause.

Symptoms include: fatigue, anxiety, moodiness, reduced libido, loss of drive and self confidence, facial wrinkles, breast tissue development, muscle weakness, increased blood pressure and a reduction in bone density.

By addressing lifestyle and stress factors, supporting liver function and optimizing dietary and nutritional intake, we are often able to rebalance hormone production and restore health and vitality.
