Many things can accelerate the decline of hormone levels in both sexes. Stress levels, diet, nutrition and lifestyles all contribute to hormone imbalance. Currently, one of the main culprits is stress. This is true because the stress hormone, cortisol, is built with the same building blocks as our sex hormones, DHEA, testosterone and estrogen. The more stress we have, the more cortisol we demand and the fewer building blocks we have to make our sex hormones.
It's National Men's Health Week... The purpose of the observance is to raise awareness of preventable health problems and encourage the early detection and treatment of health problems affecting men. Take care of yourself and be proactive with your health, not reactive!
