In my practice, men are the least represented group of clients. I often wonder why that is. Many men lead quite stressful lives. Would they be less careful about looking after their health than women? We know that men tend to have fewer health checks and often postpone going for treatment until they can no longer ignore the symptoms.
So here is an encouragement for men in particular:
When you are unwell, it is not just your physical health that suffers - your mental and emotional health may also be affected.
Some people find it hard to express their discomfort or pick up on early indications that they are unwell - so it is not surprising when a crisis develops. This may be physical illness or emotional symptoms, depression and anxieties.
If stress, work or exam pressure, mid-life crisis, unemployment or the challenges of getting older affect your health in any way, you will find a particularly appropriate therapy in homeopathy. That's because homeopathy addresses physical, mental and emotional issues all at the same time. When combined with the benefits of good nutrition, exercise and relaxation, homeopathy can provide optimum support for men of any age.
Homeopathic remedies are particularly useful in the area of sport injuries, sprains and strains. They can greatly speed up healing and protect against long-term damage. Of course this goes for all injuries, from whatever origin.
It is estimated that 1 in 10 men over the age of 21 suffers from impotence or erectile dysfunction, and most men suffer in silence. Homeopathy offers a large number of medicines for men suffering from erectile dysfunction and prostate problems. Because of its holistic approach it can help at the same time with other problems that men may experience, like skin disorders, respiratory and digestive conditions, and many more.
When to visit a homeopath
It is important to recognise that minor symptoms are early warning signs, indicating a need for attention. You should visit a homeopath whenever you feel that you are not in the full of your health, or your capacity to function in your daily life is impaired in any way. Many patients arrange a regular six-monthly check-up with their homeopath. It's a great way to focus on staying healthy!
