When it comes to treating hormonal imbalance, there is no uniform approach. Yet, many in the medical field continuously prescribe “band-aid” treatments that may work for some but don't offer all patients optimal results, nor do they address their full scope of health concerns and symptoms.

AUTHOR Terri DeNeui, DNP, APRN, ACNP-BC CATEGORY Andropause POSTED ON February 21, 2019 SOCIAL @EVEXIASMEDICAL While men don’t experience menopause, they do have a similar stage in life, known as andropause. Haven’t heard of it? We’re not surprised. Men tend to experience less rapid and severe symptoms during this hormonal change than women do leading many men do not speak about it or even recognize it.

Today, we want to breakdown what andropause is, what to expect, and steps to take to minimize effects.

Parents may blame raging hormones for turbulent teenage behavior. But what about harnessing the power of these hormones themselves? For those aged 40 or over, hormones can promote a good night’s sleep and increase intimacy levels. Hormones: the great equalizer Hormones are chemical messengers in our bodies that keep tabs on our internal functions and make sure our organs are working properly. Women know that even a slight change in their estrogen, testosterone or progesterone levels can result in symptoms such as low energy, moodiness, food cravings, loss of libido and weight gain. Men with low testosterone levels may also experience these symptoms, though TV commercials do their best to blame the symptoms on a certain part of their anatomy instead, leading to reduced awareness. So, what should you address first: your lack of sleep? Or low intimacy levels? In actual fact, the two are linked. Dr. Rachel Needle
