Men begin to experience hormone imbalances as early as their 20′s. One of the first signs of hormone imbalance includes thinning of the hair. Due to toxicity, nutritional deficiencies, and stress, anabolic hormones can convert to less desirable hormones such as DHT and Estrogen. Men begin to lose about 2% of their natural production of testosterone starting around age 20, so typically by the age of 40 a man could potentially have a 50% loss of testosterone. If you or someone you know is experiencing the following symptoms, Andropause may be the problem: fatigue, depression, anxiety, anger, irritability, poor memory, increased belly fat, decreased muscle strength, loss or decrease in morning erection, low sex drive, poor erectile firmness, male breasts, and/or urinary problems.
Male hormone imbalance and deficiency is treatable; however, just giving the body testosterone is an incomplete answer to the problem. A comprehensive hormone program with a nutrition and lifestyle emphasis is the key. When circulation and muscle strength decreases, erectile function may decrease. Erectile medications such as testosterone are not the answer but a Band-Aid. It is important to realize erectile function goes hand-and-hand with heart function. The heart is the most important muscle in the body, and poor erections may be a sign of much more; therefore, it is important to look at the whole person when designing a wellness program.
