Guys, are you feeling moody, experiencing changes in your sexual function, tired or low on energy &/or is your body composition changing as you age? Well your hormones are changing, specifically your androgens (testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, DHEA & cortisol). Just like women (sorry but it's true) your hormones decrease as you age. Other symptoms you may experience as this happens are:
- decreased erectile function
- decreased mental ability
- insulin resistance
- loss of muscle strength
- loss of muscle mass
- less energy
- weight gain
- trouble urinating/incontinence
- prostate issues
- bone loss
This is common!! All the above hormones levels need to be in balance for your body's  endocrine & androgen systems to function optimally. If any of these are out of balance, you can experience the above symptoms or even problems with your nervous, immune & metabolic systems. These imbalances if not tended to can lead to cardiovascular health problems. 
So what do you do?
There's a LOT you can do!! Stress management, regular exercise, maintaining a healthy diet, adding alternative therapies like acupuncture, herbal supplementation and essential oils can all return your hormones to healthy levels. What you'll physically gain is muscle mass & strength, a healthy libido & sexual performance, & increased energy & weight loss to name a few. Don't keep ignoring these common issues. I can help you with all of the above & help refer you if we decide your hormones need to be tested to get a deeper look. Take control of your health today!!
