Natural treatment for men’s health
Our naturopathic doctors and the rest of our wellness team can help with men’s health issues. Natural medicine offers numerous safe and effective solutions to men’s specific health issues. At NEX Wellness, we treat men for many health concerns that may not be specific to them. For example, we can help with acne, hair loss, psoriasis, diabetes, back pain, eczema, hypertension, and so on. In addition, there are many diseases that men may be more prone to that we can also help. In this blog, we share some information about natural treatment for men’s health and how it can benefit you.
For prostate cancer
Prostate cancer, which impacts one in six men, is best treated when found early. Education about risk factors, which impact when regular screening should begin and how often it should take place, is essential. Studies show that prevention works and lifestyle factors impact cancer incidence and aggressiveness. If prostate cancer is diagnosed, using naturopathic medicine approaches alongside conventional care can help enhance efficacy, decrease side effects, and help prevent a recurrence.
For sexual disfunction
Sexual dysfunction is a complaint that actually brings men to doctors’ offices. Defined as an inability to attain or maintain an erection adequate for the sexual satisfaction of both partners, sexual dysfunction may also be an indication of other health conditions. For instance, cardiovascular disease with atherosclerosis causes clogging of blood vessels, which can cause impotence. Sexual dysfunction can also be a symptom of diabetes, related to poor circulation, or other endocrine system disorders. Side effects of commonly prescribed medications such as antidepressants, antihistamines, and anti-hypertensives can contribute to sexual dysfunction, as can alcohol and drug use. An ND can help you figure out underlying causes, and create a treatment plan that addresses your risk factors or pathology. NDs use a whole-body approach, including a prescription for diet and exercise, to help improve circulation.
For cardiovascular disease
Heart disease, which remains the number one killer of Canadian men, is largely preventable if caught and treated early. By treating the whole person, naturopathic doctors address the genetic, environmental, and behavioral/lifestyle factors that lead to cardiovascular disease.
Diabetes is the sixth leading cause of death for men and chronic disease that has an enormous impact on the quality of life. Naturopathic doctors have an extensive toolkit to work from in order to help patients with diabetes. Their advanced training in clinical nutrition and behavioral medicine helps individuals make and sustain shifts in lifestyle that can improve or reverse disease progression.
For chronic pain
Men often struggle with chronic pain from a number of potential sources including injuries, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and other causes. Naturopathic doctors excel in non-opioid approaches to chronic pain. By developing personalized pain management treatment plans that include dietary recommendations, nutritional supplements, botanical medicines, physical rehabilitation, and mind-body approaches, NDs partner with patients to effectively help reduce pain from inflammation and other causes.
