June is Men’s Health Month. It is dedicated to bringing awareness to health issues all men of all ages face. This is an annual observance, and also a dedicated week, starting today, aimed at raising awareness of preventable health problems and encouraging early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. Certain conditions are more prevalent in men, the top being heart disease, liver disease, Diabetes, Skin Cancer, Lung Cancer, Parkinson’s Disease, Depression and Suicide. In addition, hormone imbalances can plague male health with weight gain, decreased energy levels and sexual dysfunction.
At A Place to Heal Wellness Center we want to promote and encourage men, boys, and their families to take control of health issues with the proper screenings and care. It is well known throughout America that men are more reluctant to go to the doctor than women. As the adage goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. Our goal is to shift that notion because it can be empowering for men to have that kind of control over their bodies and health
