Dr. Brody’s Natural Approach to Male Hormones
The classical male hormone- testosterone is thought of as the most important hormone in a man’s life. A deficiency in this hormone can cause low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, hair loss, fatigue, low muscle mass, increased fat mass, increased bone loss, and depression. While some men simply start taking testosterone (I do not recommend this) to alleviate their symptoms, they are just masking the reason why they have low testosterone rather than solving the question of “why?”.
I advocate for a combined approach and seek to discover and prevent the continued loss of testosterone. There are a number of different reasons why this happens to a man including having too much of the “female” hormone estrogen, aging, having low amounts of the precursor hormone DHEA or, having prostate problems.
An enlarged prostate can cause many different issues including difficulty urinating, weak urine flow, dribbling after urination, the urge to urinate after you are finished, painful urination, waking up at night to urinate multiple times, etc. There are many different treatment approaches to male hormones and health. If you, your husband, or a male family member is suffering from one or all of these symptoms, natural treatments can help.
