Men’s Health – What is this?

Men’s health is a topic that often does not get as much attention as it should. Compared to women, men generally do not take much care of their health. Their lifestyles are not very healthy, and they often avoid going to the doctor for regular checkups.

Surveys also indicate that the life expectancy of men is less than the life expectancy of women. It shows why it is important for men to take proper care of their health.

Why is men’s health important?

Improve your overall well-being

Living a healthy lifestyle is the key to overall well-being. When you take care of yourself, your immune system gets stronger, and you become able to combat many serious health issues on your own.

So, consider mens health week (June 13-19) the time to start a healthy regime and improve your overall well-being. Make a positive change in your life by engaging in regular exercise, a healthy diet, and stress management. You should also make meditation a part of your lifestyle.

Increase your longevity

As mentioned earlier, men’s life expectancy is shorter than women's. Society pushes many expectations on men and forces them to be the “tough guy” who cannot cry, should stay stronger, and always provide for the family. Due to this, many men get discouraged from taking care of their bodies the right way.

Many psychological and social factors contribute to the shorter life expectancy of men. These factors need to be addressed so that men can adopt healthy habits and improve their life expectancy.

Prevent age-related health issues

As men move towards old age, the level of some hormones such as testosterone starts declining, and many other changes start occurring in their bodies. All these factors increase the risk of illnesses like cardiac disease, prostate cancer, arthritis, etc.

Though ageing cannot be avoided, you can take precautionary measures and improve your lifestyle to reduce the risk of age-related illnesses. This way, you will be happier and healthier as you age.

What should I expect from men’s health services?

Men’s health clinics offer services that are unique to men. These may include treatments related to issues like:

Baldness

Prostate health

Fertility

Male menopause

Weight management

Sexual health

Diet

When you go to a men’s health clinic to receive these services, the practitioner first gathers information about your medical history, lifestyle, and health concerns. They will run a few physical and diagnostic tests to rule out certain conditions.

The practitioner will then design a treatment plan to help you reduce the symptoms of illness that you are suffering from, to help you lead a healthier life. They may also provide an overview about mens health week and similar topics, to increase your awareness regarding men’s health.

Summary

Men’s health is an important topic that should not be neglected. As a man, you should nourish your mind, body and soul to improve your longevity and live a healthier life. Make every mens health week a turning point of your life. Start making small changes to your lifestyle to see big results.
