A Functional Approach to Men’s Health
In regards to Men’s Health, we want to maximize the effectiveness of the Male Endocrine System. Between men and women’s endocrine systems, men typically see hormone balance a little quicker. So much of that is related to one extra special hormone that is required for overall men’s health: testosterone.
Low testosterone, or “Low T,” is one of the more searched topics by men on the internet. In recent years, “Low T” clinics have popped up in strip malls and advertised heavily during sports radio with a quick fix option to receive testosterone injections. The problem is that receiving shots of synthetic testosterone isn’t fixing the problem that got them there in the first place. We like to ask questions, such as:
Why is testosterone low?
- Are there vitamin and mineral deficiencies in the diet?
- Are there blood sugar imbalances and/or elevated insulin levels
- Are stress hormones driving an imbalance in testosterone production?
- Are HGH (human growth hormone) levels being maximized during restorative sleep at night?
Common Men’s Health Issues
We believe that the body can self-heal and self-regulate if it is free of nerve-interference and properly fed. Our goal with Functional Nutrition and Herbal Therapy is to help feed the body what it needs and restore balance and perform at a high level. Of course, testosterone is not the only reason men seek out our nutritional services, it’s just the most common. There are other motivating factors, too.
The most common complaints from men we work with are:
- General Fatigue
- Exercise Performance
- Weight Loss
- Stress Management
- Heart Health (Blood pressure, cholesterol, etc.)
Whatever the reason, if you are ready to take control of your health and learn how your body can heal itself and perform at a high level, Functional Nutrition and Herbal Therapy may be just what you need.
