Men's Health Q&A

What conditions affect men's health?

Men deal with a variety of health issues as they get older, including:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low testosterone
  • Low sex drive
  • Enlarged prostate
  • Prostatitis
  • Chronic stress
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Gaining weight (especially around their abdomen)
  • Anxiety, depression, and stress

All these conditions are typically preventable when you get an early men’s health evaluation of your risk factors and make the necessary lifestyle changes to maintain optimal health.

How do hormone imbalances affect men's health?

Many men don't know that their hormone levels naturally go down as they get older. Beginning around the age of 30, testosterone levels continuously drop by up to 2% every year.

As testosterone levels decline, you experience problems such as:

  • Loss of sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Diminished muscle strength
  • Weight gain
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Thinning beard and body hair
  • Loss of bone mass (osteoporosis)

In addition to the natural drop in testosterone, some men may develop hypogonadism. This condition causes low testosterone due to a problem with hormone production.

What treatments improve men's health?

One of the advantages of naturopathic men’s health care is that Dr. Wool takes a holistic approach. He always gets to the source of your symptoms and treats every issue contributing to your health problems.

Dr. Wool creates an individualized treatment plan that draws from many different natural therapies, such as:

  • Dietary changes
  • Herbal (botanical) medicine
  • IV nutrition
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Peptide therapy
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Infrared sauna
  • Acupuncture
  • Ozone therapies
  • Shockwave therapy
  • Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy

When blood tests show you have low testosterone, Dr. Wool prescribes bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Restoring your hormones back to their normal levels with safe, plant-based bioidentical hormones eliminates your symptoms and prevents chronic health conditions caused by low testosterone, such as osteoporosis and weak muscles.

Dr. Wool helps men overcome erectile dysfunction with one of today's most advanced treatments, shockwave therapy. Limited blood flow, usually due to fatty plaque, is one of the top causes of erectile dysfunction.

A series of shockwave treatments remove the plaque, trigger tissue healing, and stimulate new blood vessel growth. As a result, you regain the ability to have a strong erection.
