Naturopathic Doctors Help Address Top Men’s Health Concerns with Lifestyle Changes and Natural Therapies

June is Men’s Health Month

Seattle, Washington, UNITED STATES

Seattle, June 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Despite new data showing a rise in advanced prostate cancer, men are more likely than women to skip doctor visits. With higher rates of heart disease, diabetes, and other preventable chronic diseases, men stand to benefit from managing their health more proactively and preventively. Naturopathic doctors can help, with a unique, accessible approach to men’s health focusing on natural, non-prescription therapies, patient education, and lifestyle changes. This is according to the Institute for Natural Medicine (INM), which today released a new FAQ in partnership with the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP).

Five key lifestyle changes can add up to 12 years to a man’s life. Naturopathic doctors have helped countless patients make and sustain health-building lifestyle changes. They do so by applying their rigorous training in clinical nutrition, behavioral medicine, and botanical medicine. A few key areas of men’s health where NDs specialize include:

  • Prostate cancer
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • Chronic pain

“Lifestyle factors play an enormous role in many men’s health conditions,” said Michelle Simon, PhD, ND and Chair of the INM Board of Directors. “With a focus on identifying underlying causes of symptoms, meeting patients where they are, and offering highly individualized guidance to make and sustain lifestyle changes, naturopathic doctors are a great option for men who tend to avoid going to the doctor.”
