Men’s Top 6 Health Concerns

June 2, 2020

June is Men’s Health Month. Whether you’re a man who is searching for answers to his health concerns or a woman who wants to help her brother, father or husband, this information will be enlightening. Discover the underlying cause and natural solution for men’s top 6 health concerns.

1. Heart Disease

Testosterone

As a man, are you worried about having a heart attack? Most people’s first thought is to reach for a cholesterol-lowering drug, but we think differently. There is a better, natural way to truly protect your heart – testosterone. Did you know that optimal testosterone levels help prevent heart attacks? It protects the heart and arteries, and decreases risk of heart disease. It accumulates in the heart twice as much as in normal muscle and five times as much as in the prostate, which is also very receptive to testosterone.

Magnesium

Another big piece of the puzzle in preventing heart disease is magnesium.  Magnesium is a mineral that is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps to maintain normal nerve and muscle function, supports a healthy immune system, keeps the heartbeat steady, and helps bones remain strong. Your heart can’t function properly without magnesium. Magnesium prevents muscle spasms of the heart blood vessels, which can lead to a high blood pressure and a heart attack. Magnesium prevents calcium buildup in cholesterol plaque in arteries, which leads to clogged arteries. Click here to learn how magnesium protects your heart.

Vitamin D

Did you know that vitamin D also supports heart health? In the Framingham Heart Study, patients with low vitamin D concentrations had a 60% higher risk of heart disease than those with higher concentrations. (1)

2. High Cholesterol

A lot of men are especially concerned about their cholesterol. In fact, it’s estimated that 71 million Americans have high cholesterol; the majority of which have likely been told that it’s due to diet or that they need cholesterol-lowering drugs. Considering that more than 72 million Americans are obese, it comes as no surprise that diet contributes to high cholesterol and triglycerides. But you may be surprised to learn that in addition to an unhealthy diet, the cause for your high cholesterol could be linked to hypothyroidism. Click here to learn why.

3. Prostate Health

As a man ages, so does his prostate gland. This walnut-shaped gland lies below the bladder, in front of the rectum and surrounds part of the urethra. The prostate gland isn’t even a thought to most men up until their late forties. However, oftentimes when a man reaches his fifties he becomes painfully aware of its existence. As the prostate gland ages it begins to swell and grow more than normal, affecting a man’s urinary and sexual health. Click here to learn about the role hormonal balance plays in ensuring you have a healthy prostate.

As a man, you understand the importance of protecting your prostate at all stages of life. While you see your doctor for regular annual exams, it’s also important that you are always supporting the health of your prostate so that you can reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer or any other prostate-related health issues. Dr. Hotze’s Prostate Pro was designed to support all aspects of optimal prostate function in men. It may improve urinary symptoms, such as frequent and/or painful urination; strengthen urinary flow; aids in bladder emptying; increases prostate function; and decreases the urge to urinate at night, thereby improving sleep

4. Low Libido

Testosterone

You’ve seen the Viagra commercials on TV, so you know that low libido and sexual function is a common health concern of men. However, we urge you to think twice before taking a drug such as Viagra, when there is a safe and natural solution available. Find out how you can restore your libido safely and naturally.

Maca Root

Maca is a root grown in the Andes and has been used for many years to help both men and women regulate hormone production. It works as an adaptogen in that it responds to different body’s needs individually. From reproductive health to hot flashes, Maca Root supports hormonal balance naturally. It enhances fertility, libido and sexual function, especially in men.

5. Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes is a big concern for men since it can lead to more serious complications such as heart disease, nerve damage, and kidney damage, to name a few. The Standard American Diet (SAD) is loaded with sugar and simple carbohydrates, so it’s important to try to eat a healthy, including lots of fruits and vegetables and keep your blood sugar under control. However, there often there is more to it than that. Did you know that hypothyroidism leads to diabetes? Click here to discover the connection between hypothyroidism and diabetes.

6. Depression

Does this one surprise you? Depression is very common among women, but yes, men do get depressed, too. They may not talk about it as much as women do, nor seek help, but it definitely happens. Depression can make a man feel sad, tired, irritable and empty inside. He may feel hopeless, and lose interest in work, family and activities he used to like. If you’ve noticed that the man in your life isn’t himself or seems down and uninterested in life, then you need to learn about two common causes of depression in men. Click here to find out the connection to hypothyroidism and low testosterone.

As you can see, thyroid and testosterone hormones play a big role in men’s health. As these hormones decline, serious health issues can occur as a result. Besides adopting a healthy eating plan, avoiding processed and fast foods, and staying active, restoring your hormones and vitamin and mineral supplementation are just as crucial for optimal health.

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
