Healthy Living for Men
Posted on: February 04, 2019 in Category: Men’s Health Treatments
When men reach a certain age, they begin to experience many changes to their bodies that can make them feel sluggish, fatigued, and even melancholy. Between the ages of 30 to 55, a man’s once active body can begin to slow down due to low testosterone levels and unbalanced hormones, thus causing them to lose energy faster. Just as it is important to get in shape and take care of your physical appearance, it is also critical that you manage your inner health.
Fortunately, Dr. Sand and her team of experts offer a wide variety of men’s health treatments, such as anti-aging medicine and hormone therapy for men, to boost their overall health and confidence. This includes nutrition for muscle mass, testosterone replacement, peptide therapy, and erectile dysfunction.
Nutrition for Muscle Mass
The foods we put into our body can play a huge role in our health and sometimes do more harm than good. When we consume unhealthy meals or large portions of salty and fatty snacks daily, it causes the muscles in our body to become weak and flabby. Some men may experience weight fluctuations from either hormone imbalance or an unhealthy diet. Changing the way you eat, maintaining a healthy diet, and a strict exercise routine can make a substantial difference in a man’s physical and emotional lifestyle. Whole foods that contain B vitamins, iron, and other nutritional benefits can help with muscle strength. It is recommended to consume:
Testosterone levels are known to start decreasing by the time a man reaches his 40s. This can cause them to develop certain physical and emotional issues like weak muscles, bone mineral density, weight fluctuations, anemia, anxiety, and even depression. Testosterone replacement therapy can address these and other issues to improve a man’s quality of life.
Balanced hormones are essential to a man’s health. Peptide therapy is an anti-aging treatment that uses specific peptides to promote healthy hormone growth while also improving cell production for stronger and healthier bones and muscles. It can also protect men from developing certain chronic illnesses, such as:
- Heart failure
- Alzheimer’s disease
As we age, men may find themselves struggling to get or keep an erection firm enough during intimacy. Some men may also find themselves no longer becoming aroused due to a decrease in testosterone levels. Erectile dysfunction will not only reduce a man’s sexual drive, but this can also cause them to become emotionally discouraged. Testosterone replacement and other hormone treatments can increase a man’s sexual function and libido to restore pleasure when having sex.
