Men's Health Month Feature: Man in Balance

Balance in life is very important. Society will pay more attention to the imbalance in women than men, promoting prescription drugs, vitamin supplements, treatments and even daily regimens. Men are subject to hormonal imbalance as well and many don't even understand how real it is.

Research shows that testosterone levels in men drop due to many factors in life; from age, activity levels, stressors and the environment. Many men question why their sex drive is lower than usual. Some question why they are experiencing erectile dysfunction, even before the age of 40. Even having a low sperm count is affecting many men today. All are symptoms of hormonal imbalance.

Hormonal Imbalance in men also bring on unexplained fatigue, hair loss, anxiety, depression, lack of motivation, and weight gain, which can lead to major health issues if not addressed. Many men will attribute hair loss to "their mother's side of the family" or age. Those experiencing depression will not admit to ill feelings and suppress them for fear that people around them will suggest therapy or medication. Most who lack motivation will seek a new job or relocate, only to find that the feeling never dissipates.

Truth is, you know your body! You may not call it hormonal imbalance but you definitely feel that something is "off". Listen to your body.
