Health tips for men

Men are notorious for avoiding the doctor and sometimes ignoring symptoms.
Is this why women live longer on average? 

There are things you can do to stay on top of your health. 

First, you need to find your baseline. This consists of an evaluation of your current weight, blood pressure, blood sugar, medical history, and routine blood work. 


Healthy Eating: 

A healthy diet is a cornerstone of optimal health. 

  • Avoid processed foods and limit the fake stuff
  • Eat a wide variety of fresh foods 
  • Shop the outside perimeter of the grocery store 
  • Don't drink your calories 
  • Reduce cravings

  • Balance vitamins, minerals, fats, and proteins

  • Don't eat late at night 

Physical Activity:

Exercise is vital to health. 

Typically you should have a goal for 150 minutes per week of physical activity like walking, playing basketball, racket ball, etc. You should also incorporate at least 2 sessions of muscle-strengthening activities per week into your exercise regimen. 

Avoid Disease: 

The leading cause of death in men is heart disease so it’s important to get moving and follow the exercise recommendations above! 

Your waistline should measure less than 40 inches around. Anything above that can raise your risk for diseases like Type II Diabetes, Heart Disease, and Stroke. 

Strive for Overall Balance: 

When your body chemistry is out of balance it can cause an overreliance on stimulants and increase cravings.

Stress is also a factor. Make sure you have a stress outlet that you put on your schedule and treat it like an appointment you cannot miss. 

If you have trouble eating a balanced diet, supplements may be necessary. Ask us about customized supplements, specially designed to meet your health needs.

Protect your body: 

Lubricate mucus membranes and skin with Water and Vitamin A. 

Vitamin A: Fat-soluble vitamin that helps improve vision, immune system, reproduction, growth and development, heart health, and skin health 

Prostate Health: 

Next to skin cancer, prostate cancer is the next most common malignancy in men. 

Watch for the warning signs of poor prostate health including:

  • Trouble urinating
  • Blood in the urine
  • Waking up 4-5 times per night to urinate 

Foods that promote prostate health include: 

  1. Pomegranates
  2. Walnuts
  3. Tomatoes
  4. Broccoli

Optimal health is all about following the rules of health as closely as possible. Health is not a destination but something we have to work toward and maintain every day. 

  • Put your body on a schedule
  • Eat healthy and alive foods 
  • Drink plenty of water 
  • Get adequate sleep 
  • Have a stress outlet
