Exercising regularly, eating and sleeping well, and meditating each day help improve a man’s overall health and well-being. Other ways to reduce stress include solving the cause of stress, avoiding stressful situations, accepting things you can’t change, avoid procrastination, and don’t overload yourself. While taking these approaches, it is important to keep a positive attitude. Most importantly, when you do something good for yourself you should celebrate your victory and recognize the hard work you put into your efforts. All of these steps should help a man lead a less stressful and healthier life.
Depression effects nearly 19 million American adults. Have you noticed abnormal changes in your mood, appetite, sleep, or energy levels? Depression is not a weakness.

Pinpointing exactly what triggers an individual’s depression, which includes hormones, provides the physician with the key to successful treatment.
Since the first time I saw Dr. Archer and started on my hormone treatment, things may get me down for a day, maybe two, but that’s it. I started on my new hormones on June 1, 09. I have almost as much energy as I did in my 30’s. I can’t wait for the 20’s!! Today, I walked for the first time and I joined Weight Watchers one more time, but for the last time. I’m going to outlive Suzanne Somers!!! I’m handling the rejection which is something I’ve never been able to handle and I’m starting to really like me. I’m starting to paint again and starting to make my house beautiful which is why I got into this business 21 years ago.

The best way to find out is to find a qualified doctor to do an evaluation of your hormone levels with blood and saliva testing. With proper hormone balance you may be able to get off the medications which you are uncomfortable taking.
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.
BodyLogicMD covers the gamut – nutrition, rest, fitness – all of those combined have helped me get in balance. I feel really great now and have been feeling wonderful! I actually felt good enough to compete in Mrs. Georgia United States 2009 and I won photogenic and tied for the Swimsuit Award (with someone who was born the year my husband and I got married)! I would never have been able to do that if I hadn’t seen Dr. Donohue. It felt so great when I won the swimsuit award – and I was competing with women in their 20’s! Taking good care of yourself and getting the right kind of medical advice can make all the difference…
