Andropause, the male equivalent of menopause, can have a profound effect on a man’s health, physique, sex drive, and general well-being. Starting at around 30 years of age, men lose one percent of their testosterone every year. Physically, this contributes to abdominal weight gain, declining muscle tone, reduced energy and cognitive function, as well as a waning interest in sex and difficulty in having and maintaining an erection.
Psychologically, men who suffer from a hormonal imbalance can experience mental fatigue, irritability, lack of motivation, and depression. Declining hormone levels in middle-aged men has also been linked to prostate and heart disease, elevated cholesterol, and angina.
The good news is that diet, exercise, stress management, and natural therapies along with a medically prescribed program of natural bio-identical hormones can safely boost testosterone levels and actually reverse the ageing process.
Erectile dysfunction and low libido is commonly associated with low testosterone levels, although it can still occur in a man with normal testosterone. Establishing an erection is a function of having sexual arousal (libido) and adequate blood flow. A deficiency in either or both of these areas will lead to erectile dysfunction. Our comprehensive program assesses the entire hormonal landscape, considering lifestyle elements, nutritional supplements, and hormonal balancing to improve erectile dysfunction.
