Men often lead stressful lives but sometimes can be less careful about looking after their health than women. They tend to have fewer health checks and often postpone going for treatment until they can no longer ignore the symptoms.
For men, it is not just physical health that suffers - their mental and emotional health is also at risk.
Sometimes men 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.
Stress, work or exam pressure, mid-life crisis, unemployment or the challenges of getting older affect men's health in various ways. Men facing these challenges find a particularly appropriate therapy in homeopathy, which 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.
There are a number of remedies that are particularly useful in the area of sport injuries, sprains and strains. They can greatly speed up healing and protect against long-term damage.
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 with other problems that men may also experience, for example skin disorders, respiratory, circulatory and digestive conditions, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), migraine, stress 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.
