It is common knowledge that most men visit their GP less often than women and tend to ignore a minor health issue in the hope that it will go away. Think about your father, brother or husband right now. Chances are, they haven’t been to the doctors in years. Right? Most men suffer more in silence then visit their GP and and their health and lifestyle issues are more likely to be overlooked. Consider the following facts:
- Men, on average, live for six years less than women
- Over 90 per cent of convicted acts of violence are carried out by men, and nearly 70 per cent of the victims will be men
- Approximately three-quarters of the unemployed are men
- A leading cause of death amongst men between 12 and 60 years of age is self-inflicted death
- and boys commit suicide four times more frequently than women
Men need help and support in changing times. From stress and anxiety, divorce and absent fathers, to infertility, impotence, prostate problems, sexual health, homeopathy can be a gentle way to restore wellbeing. Homoeopathy can support you if you are experiencing the following symptoms:
Stress, Anxiety and Mood Issues
Since the start of the 2008 global financial crisis, men have been under more pressure financially at the workplace and home to keep up with the ever-increasing demands. Stereotypical masculinity enforces that men don’t talk about their feelings. Men internalise their stress, anxiety and mood issues. There is an increasing awareness of modalities that recognises the link between mind and body and there has been a move to look for natural therapies that recognise this mind-body connection as an important part of the health care regime. I offer a safe, caring, supportive and confidential environment; the Homoeopathic Consultation we offer is a period of time dedicated to men’s wellbeing. It’s time to spend an hour strictly focusing on your well being and allows you to relax and focus on your needs.
Indigestion & Heartburn
Often byproducts of high-stress, too many rich foods, alcohol and meals on the go, these can cause indigestion and heartburn and reflux. Homeopathy can support digestive health with a variety of homeopathic medicines.
Back pain, Sprains and Sports Injuries
Back pain and sports injuries are the most common and debilitating illnesses reported. Sprains, the overuse of joints, muscles & tendons during exercise and sport activities and ageing can take their toll on our bodies in general and as we grow older affect our joints, cartilages, ligaments and tendons. The wear and tear on our joints expresses itself as osteoarthritis later on in life.
Gout is a form of arthritis caused by the an increase of uric acid in the bloodstream. The symptoms of gout are caused by the formation of uric acid crystals in the joint which can cause an attack of sudden burning pain, stiffness, and swelling in a joint, usually affecting the big toe.
While many articles and studies regarding infertility focus on women, there is often less attention paid to men, who may have low sperm counts or nonviable sperm or other health issues that may decrease healthy fertility. Men may also suffer the same emotional distress and pain upon learning they are not able to have children. Homoeopathy can support reproductive health with a variety of homeopathic medicines.
Impotence can be caused by variety of factors in a man’s life, from stress and confidence issues to physical ailments. Many times , we see men who seek help for other health concerns and find that they’re experiencing stress anxiety in their lives and are dissatisfied with their work and or home life which is one of the causes of their sexual disfunction.
For many men, prostate health declines as they age. The prostate naturally enlarges as a men ages, and can begin to exert pressure on the urethra, causing symptoms that can range from frequent urination, dribbling at end of urination to impotence. Left untreated, this can cause anything from Urinary tract infections to cancer. Homeopathic remedies may help and support prostate enlargement early and help to restore quality of life.
