June 9, 2021

June is Men’s Health Month, and it is also the month in which we celebrate Father’s Day. Whether you’re a dad, uncle, grandfather, brother, or nephew, all the people in your life want the best for you – and this starts with good health.

Let us ask you a few questions:
  • Are you tired all the time?
  • Do you not sleep well?
  • Have you lost your motivation and drive?
  • Are you anxious or depressed?
  • Do you have low or no libido?
  • Have you gained a spare tire around your waist?
  • Have you lost muscle mass and tone even though you still work out?
  • Have you lost interest in the things you used to love to do?
  • Do you not feel like yourself anymore?
Symptoms of Low Testosterone

Here are some very common symptoms of low testosterone to look out for:

tired all the time
low libido
depressed, irritable moods
decreased mental sharpness
gaining weight around midsection
lack of assertiveness
decline in self confidence
difficulty making decisions
loss of motivation
lessened stamina and endurance
decline in sense of well-being
lack of initiative and drive
loss of muscle mass, strength, and tone
sleep apnea

As men begin experiencing the above symptoms, they also lose their zest for life and aren’t as interested in the things that used to make them happy. This change not only affects you, but also your spouse, children, friends and colleagues. This age-related decline in testosterone happens gradually, so it often goes unnoticed until a man reaches his 40s or 50s. However, today it is occurring more often in a man’s 20s and 30s as well, so don’t let age rule out the possibility that a you are low in testosterone.

Importance of Testosterone for Men’s Health

Optimal testosterone levels are crucial for a man’s overall health and well-being. Testosterone positively affects muscle tone, blood pressure, cholesterol levels, the immune system, weight, moods, bone health, skin, libido, sperm production, sleep, as well as heart, liver and brain health.

Conventional Doctors’ Solution

If you’ve visited your doctor about symptoms such as fatigue, difficulty concentrating, lack of focus, irritability, anxiety, depressed moods, low libido and weight gain, then you may have left the doctor’s office with a handful of prescriptions for antidepressants, sleep medications, anti-anxiety medications, and so on. However, prescription drugs don’t solve the underlying cause of symptoms that are caused by declining testosterone levels, and they have many negative side effects.

Your doctor may have told you that your blood work was in the normal range.  It’s important for you to know that conventional doctors often measure total testosterone levels rather than free testosterone, and secondly, testosterone levels are compared to those of men within the same age group. If a man is in his 60s, for instance, he doesn’t want the testosterone levels of a 60 year old. He wants optimal testosterone levels that will help alleviate his symptoms and allow him to feel his best.

The Natural Solution

The natural, safe solution is to restore what is missing with bioidentical testosterone replacement therapy. Bioidentical testosterone is identical to the hormone made by your own body, so your body knows what to do with it. It’s just common sense.

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!
