HERBS FOR HEALTH MANAGEMENT

Herbs are a foundational root in medicine and health treatments, dating back thousands of years throughout every culture around the world. Modern Western herbalism comes from ancient Egypt. The Greeks developed a comprehensive philosophy of herbal medicine by 100 BCE and the Romans built upon it to create a variety of medical practices, some of which are still used today.

ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE IMPACTS PSYCHOLOGICAL HARDINESS

Psychological hardiness is an individual’s resistance to stress, anxiety and depression. It includes the ability to withstand grief and accept the loss of loved ones. Alternative medicine is a more popular term for health and wellness therapies that have typically not been part of conventional Western medical approaches but are often used along with conventional medicinal protocols.  Coping and dealing with stress in a positive manner play a major role in maintaining the balance needed for health and well-being.

Erectile dysfunction (ED), though not life threatening, remains a concern for men. Two thirds of men older than age 70 years and up to 39 percent of 40-year-old men have problems with ED. It is often caused by atherosclerosis.


There are several ways men can improve their health:


Most men need to pay more attention to their health. Men are more likely than women to smoke, drink too much alcohol, have risky behavior and put off regular check-ups and medical care. The good news for men is they can improve their health and avoid becoming a statistic in mortality studies.


The top threat to man’s health is cardiovascular disease, atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) in particular. Heart disease and stroke are the No. 1 and No. 2 leading causes of death worldwide in men. In the United States, the rate is one of the highest in the world.


Lung cancer remains a leading cause of death for men because by the time the cancer is found and diagnosed, it is advanced and difficult to cure.


Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, other than skin cancer. Many prostate cancers are slow growing. See your doctor for information about prostate cancer screening.

Although experts once believed depression affected far more women than men, men have a tendency to hide depressed feelings. Anger and aggression may mask depression. Most men do respond to treatment.
