Issues That Men & Women Have in Common
Low Testosterone or “Low T Syndrome”
Through increasing testosterone levels, the following have been shown to benefit considerably:
|Heart disease||Reduction in abdominal fat|
|Muscle tone||Human performance|
|Metabolism & Losing Weight||Overall well-being|
High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)
Hypertension can be lowered by reducing contractility of blood vessels and reducing vascular inflammation. Treatments in reducing high blood pressure include:
- Stress management
- Nutritional deficiency
- Hormone replacement therapy
- Restoring sleep quality
- Correcting food allergies
- Detox & Chelation
Natural Cholesterol Management—-Decreasing Heart Attack & Stroke Risk
Maintaining healthy liver function through proper nutrition, corrected vitamin levels, reduced toxin intake, regular liver detoxification and hormone balance encourage natural lowering of cholesterol.
Hormones are often overlooked as a mechanism required to getting nutrients into bone and preventing osteoporosis. While bone nutrients, i.e. Vitamin D & K, boron, calcium, zinc, etc., are essential in bone health, hormones, i.e. DHEA, testosterone, HGH, cortisol, thyroid, etc., are necessary to ensure bone building.
|Recurrent yeast infections||Hypertension|
|Urinary incontent & overactive bladder||Fatigue|
|Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)||Menopause|
Recurring Vaginal Yeast Infections & Urinary Tract Infections (UTI):
By improving vaginal pH through diet, herbs, hormone balance, proper digestive bacterial flora and detoxification, the risks of developing yeast infections or urinary tract infections become decreased.
Interstitial Cystitis And Urinary Incontinence:
Herbal medicine and optimized bioidentical hormone therapy are treatments offered for these bladder and pelvic structural problems (especially in peri-menopausal and post-menopausal women).
PMS (Pre-Menstrual Syndrome):
A number of symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome may be reduced by improving digestion, reversing nutritional deficiencies, hormone therapy, personalized detoxification, and giving supplements or herbs.
PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome):
PCOS results in weight gain, menstrual irregularity, hair growth, acne and decreased quality of life. Improved insulin sensitivity, addressing estrogen dominance, thyroid hormone resistance, leptin resistance, digestion, acupuncture and detoxification can holistically treat PCOS.
Without hormonal support, vital organs and tissues are put at risk. During menopause, women are subject to having their hormone levels significantly decrease. Treatments for menopause include acupuncture, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy or natural herbal medicine. Common symptoms associated with menopause include:
|Vaginal dryness||Loss of libido||Difficulty sleeping|
|Night sweats||Hot flashes||Weight gain|
By the time a woman reaches menopause, her ovaries have stopped excreting sufficient quantities of protective hormones. During this time, women are at an increased risk of developing breast cancer as her progesterone and estrogen levels become decreased and imbalanced. All women should protect themselves from developing breast cancer by balancing their hormones, exercising, maintaining good nutrition, avoiding alcohol and decreasing exposure to environmental risks, i.e. pesticides, plastics.
The main health issues targeting men include:
|Prostate cancer||Heart failure|
|High cholesterol||Prostate cancer|
Prostate Cancer Risk and Testosterone:
High levels of estrogen combined with low levels of testosterone have been shown to cause prostate cancer. This is a reversal of previous held beliefs that high testosterone caused cancer.
Heart Disease & Stroke:
High levels of estrogen combined with low levels of testosterone have been shown to double the risk of having a stroke or coronary artery disease.
