As we get older our hormones begin to change, which causes us to feel and look different than we used to. We’re all well versed in the concept of Menopause as it relates to these hormonal changes in women as they age but what many people don’t realize is that men go through similar changes, often called ‘Manopause’ or ‘Andropause’.
As men age, the most significant hormonal change is a decline in Testosterone levels. This change in hormones can lead to a variety of symptoms, including low libido, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, low mood, decreased muscle mass, weight gain and prostate issues.
Testing levels of Testosterone involves a simple blood test and if levels are found to be low a variety of treatment options are available. Depending on your individual case and preference your Naturopathic doctor might recommend herbs and supplements that assist your body in it’s natural production of Testosterone or they may prescribe Bioidentical Testosterone. Testosterone can be administered as a cream, gel, injection or orally as a pill. Your doctor can determine what the best option is for you.
Normalizing Testosterone levels can restore your energy and vitality, improve your sex life, optimize your physique and boost your mood allowing you to feel fit and youthful once again.
