Men’s Health

November 1, 2015

Can you believe it? We’re now preparing for the holidays!

In honor of all the men out there who are growing facial hair in support of “Movember” and the Men’s Health awareness campaign, we wanted to address this very important topic from a Naturopathic perspective.

Personally, I love to talk about prostate cancer and testicular cancer prevention – because I feel that men’s health is too often overlooked. Although many men are uncomfortable with the idea of prostrate and testicular exams, I strongly encourage all of my male patients to be checked regularly – it’s really the best way to stay in tune with the overall health of your body.

In naturopathic medicine, we believe that everything is connected when it comes to finding the root cause of disease in the body. When we conduct our specialized lab work/testing on a man, I am looking at and analyzing all of the same things that I would be looking at for my women patients – such as gut function, micronutrient status, hormones (both adrenal and sex hormones), as well as the immune system and markers for inflammation.

So, as we round out the remaining weeks of Men’s Health month…I urge all men (and for you women to urge your boyfriends, husbands, fathers, etc.) to please get those critical exams done! Also, think about coming into Bloom, where we can follow those exams up with some comprehensive lab work that will provide you with a detailed look at what’s going on inside your body’s systems to make sure everything is staying balanced.

Take good care of yourselves, and I hope to see you soon! Watch for our next blog on the latest green juice Holiday Cocktails.
