A man's hormone levels can affect his health. Low testosterone levels can affect red blood cell production, bone density, decreased muscle strength, increased fat distribution and low sex drive and sperm production and also lead to sleep problems, depression and irritability. Hormone imbalances can also occur when the thyroid, adrenal glands or pancreas malfunctions. Adrenal imbalances occur when a patient is under stress for extended periods of time. When the adrenal glands can no longer keep up with the demands of the body, your immunity decreases, digestion slows, and glucose levels climb.
As adrenal function continues to decline, hypothyroidism can occur, leading to increased glucose levels, fatigue and decreased kidney function. Due to hormone imbalances, the liver and pancreas can no longer detoxify the body, which leads to gastrointestinal disturbances, decreased immunity, increased systemic inflammation and increased risk of chronic disease.
Our functional practitioners do a comprehensive hormonal evaluation to work to balance your hormones for a healthy life.
Cardiovascular Risk Assessment
The top two leading causes of death in men are cardiovascular disease and stroke. Both of these are caused by hardening of the arteries due to cholesterol. A cardiovascular risk assessment can help you determine the factors that can lead to cardiovascular disease.
Our daily diets are frequently deficient in certain essential nutrients such as calcium, iron, iodine, magnesium, vitamin A, vitamin B12 and vitamin D. These nutritional deficiencies have been associated with a number of health issues in men including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, vision issues, osteoporosis, decreased immunity, hormonal imbalances and anemia.
Our functional practitioners use specialized testing to check for intracellular micronutrient deficiencies, which can help assess your risk factors for diseases.
When you are under chronic stress, the adrenal glands produce stress hormones, which can lead to systemic inflammation, decreased immunity and increased risk of disease. Learning stress management techniques, including deep breathing exercises, meditation, mindfulness journaling and yoga can help to relieve your stress and decrease the risk of chronic disease. In addition, exercising 30 minutes each day can lower your risk of disease.
Ample amount of sleep is essential for your body to heal itself, produce hormones, absorb nutrients and decrease stress levels. Sleep problems like sleep apnea, insomnia and restless leg syndrome can lead to sleep deprivation. We help you use sleep management techniques to help you get to sleep and stay asleep.
