Men’s Health

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine are Natural Treatments for Men’s Health

Statistically men are known to be more risk takers with their health than women. They are more likely to drink, smoke, use other vices, ignore health issues and ignore doctors. According to the United States 2013 survey the top 10 causes of death among men is heart disease(25%), cancer(24%), unintentional injuries(6%), chronic lower respiratory diseases(5%), stroke(4%), diabetes(3%), suicide(3%), pneumonia(3%), Alzheimer’s(2%), chronic liver disease(2%) and other causes(25%). The one underlying common element in all of the above is stress. Many deaths, even unintentional injuries could be prevented if the person was lead a less stressed life. Acupuncture is the best natural modality to reduce stress and can play a main role in optimizing a man’s health, ability to heal, and longevity. Your consultation at with Dr. Barrett at The Acupuncture Wellness Center will summarize three basic steps to a stress free life.

Dr. Barrett at The Acupuncture Wellness Center Will Teach You How to Eliminate Stress

In many cases the best approach to most health issues is to first and foremost live a healthy life style. This includes resolving emotions by writing down what could be possibly bothering you, what you can do about it and set a date for doing it. Sometimes just letting go is the best way to resolve an emotion. To prevent excessive pent up emotions one should practice daily quiet time which can be in the form of extensive exercise, meditation, doing something you are passionate about or simply expressing joy and laughter with friends. Men tend to have fewer close friends that they can confide in than women. Sharing problems with close friends can be a great outlet for emotional stress. Thirdly, in order to maintain optimal health, healing and longevity one should have a regularly scheduled diet regimen, have breakfast within an hour of waking and eat to support your planned activity level. Not too much, not too little with a balance of complex carbs from grains or vegetables, proteins and healthy fats. Your consultation and care with Dr. Barrett at The Acupuncture Wellness Center will focus on teaching you how to implement the above in your life.

Dr. Barrett Has a Strong Network of LA’s best physicians

Although a healthy lifestyle will help prevent many health problems it is also important to have regular exams in order to detect health issues in early stages when treatment can be simple. This can include blood tests, prostate exams and EKG’s for the heart. Dr. Barrett has a strong network of some of LA’s best physicians where he can get you a same day appointment in many cases if need be.

Reproductive Health Can be a Leading Cause of Stress for a Man

Although it may not be in the top ten causes of death as discussed above, reproductive health can be a leading cause of stress for a man. It should be noted that men are equally the cause of infertility in couples. The problem can be due to problems with sperm, ejaculation, erectile dysfunction or low testosterone. Regarding sperm, the problem can be due to low sperm count or poor sperm morphology or shape causing lack of penetration into the egg for fertilization. Stress, poor diet and recreation drugs can lead to all of these. Erectile dysfunction can be caused by stress; poor circulation due to either overall blood deficiencies, arteriosclerosis; varicoceles; low testosterone; and or weak pelvic floor muscles. A recent study in the UK demonstrated that 40% of men with erectile dysfunction can be cured by doing Kegel exercises. Regarding stress, circulation and low testosterone, acupuncture and traditional Chinese herbs are the best way to naturally and permanently decrease stress.
