It is a common stereotype that men do not seek medical attention to address general health issues until it’s too late. At Sage Naturopathic Clinic, our goal is to change this narrative, and provide safe and effective solutions to assist men in discovering the root cause of their health concerns.
- Prostate health
Considered to be an inevitable outcome for all ageing men, prostate enlargement is a common health concern that can be safely and effectively treated using naturopathic solutions. The first signs of age-related benign prostate enlargement (BPH) include increased frequency and urgency of urination, difficulty urinating and weak urine stream.
- Sexual health
Reduced sex drive and erectile dysfunction (or a combination of both) are not only common male complaints, but may present in men of all ages. The most important variable in ensuring successful treatment outcomes is determining the source of these issues. Naturopathic medicine offers an opportunity for men to identify the root cause of their libido-related concerns through in-depth investigation and targeted treatment options.
- Naturopathic medicine offers sustainable solutions to both acute and chronic digestive complaints through targeted dietary and lifestyle recommendations, as well as individualized supplemental support. From non-specific IBS symptoms such as gas, bloating and indigestion, to more severe cases such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, patients have found great success in implementing naturopathic approaches to solve their digestive health concerns.
- Research has now confirmed that both short-term and prolonged periods of mental and physical stress can have a profound effect on our overall health. From reduced immune function, to disruptions in sleep, to periods of complete burnout, men often dismiss the notion that these symptom pictures are a direct result of mismanaged stress. Naturopathic doctors are equipped to provide their patients with the tools they need to tackle life’s stressors through evidence-based stress management techniques and supplemental support.
- Although mental health has been brought to the forefront in recent years, the stigma still persists within our society – particularly in the male demographic. It has been shown that 1 in 5 Canadians experience an issue with mental illness or addiction in any given year. Various naturopathic interventions can be utilized to manage mild cases of common mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression. They can also be used in conjunction with more conventional treatment options.
