I love treating men because they are usually ready to get down to business by the time they get to me. They’ve often been told by either their doctor and/or significant other that their numbers on blood work are not good, their blood sugar levels are often spiralling out of control, their CRP and cholesterol levels are elevated, and they have that dangerous fat growing around their middle and often they are experiencing acid reflux.
They are losing their vitality. They’ve possibly experienced a heart attack, have become diabetic, or have had a bout with cancer. They understand it’s time to get their health turned around and in their male way, usually take the bull by the horns and get it done.
It may be surprising to know that the two hormones, thyroid and testosterone often affect heart health and blood sugar regulation. Just like women, men need their hormones evaluated, their eating and lifestyle habits tweaked, and nutritional status and toxic load measured, and digestion healed.
I’m often surprised at the number of men who experience a loss of vitality in their 30’s.
My job is to help men make the appropriate changes to get their life and vitality back and to help them remain disease. Feeling tired and a shadow of yourself is not a natural part of aging, especially if you’re under the age of 80.
