Mens Health

From a healthy heart to a good sex life, the proper flow and circulation of blood in your arteries is one of the most important things you can do to maintain good health and push back the aging process. Blood is the common denominator between good arterial health, sexual health, and disorders such as heart attack, obesity, diabetes and high glucose levels.

One of the most potent preventatives in natural health care is a proper diet. Because diet strongly influences weight, sex hormone production (including testosterone) etc, as well as the health of our arteries, it is important to avoid excess meat consumption, bad fats, too much dairy product, and a lack of vegetables and fruits in the diet.

There are a lot of avenues your naturopath can recommend to address a range of health problems specific to men. However, if you are already on prescribed medication, like blood thinners, diuretics or any other heart related drugs, consult your doctor with any questions you may have, before taking additional herbs or supplements.

Some very common conditions that can successfully be treated naturopathically:

Erectile dysfunction

- Millions of men all over the world will experience erectile dysfunction at one time or another – particularly between the ages of 40-70. That explains why there is such a huge market for products to strengthen or restore erections. There are proven homeopathic remedies – including Sepia, Hypericum, Lycopodium, and Cantharis – and other naturopathic treatments that are very successful, because they are extremely effective as well as medically benign.

Premature ejaculation

- One of the most common conditions for men, a naturopathic approach offers a much more gentle, enjoyable and effective solution than conventional methods. Homeopathic remedies – including Selenium, Nux Vomica, and Gelsemium – taken internally, have been tested and proven effective for this condition.

Prostate disorders

- Before resorting to invasive surgery, discuss with your doctor having non-invasive naturopathic treatment first. Often, a single dose of the right remedy will stimulate the body’s healing response to prostate disorders, including fluid seepage, swelling, overactive bladder, and painful orgasms, making surgery unnecessary.


- As men age, they often face the pain and discomfort of arthritis in finger and toe joints and rheumatic pains throughout the back, limbs, and shoulders. Naturopathic treatment offers many effective remedies to relieve symptoms and reverse the condition.


- This is another painful condition that men often experience as they age. Caused by a build-up of uric acid, gout is associated with swelling, redness, and extreme pain in the joints – particularly of the big toe. There are a number of natural remedies proven to relieve gout pain and strengthen joint health.

Low sperm count and/or quality

- Recent medical studies and reports indicate that male infertility is on the rise and much of it is because of our lifestyle and poor dietary habits. Low sperm count is one of the major reasons of infertility in men. Some of the most common negative effects on sperm production and fertility include poor nutrition, smoking, being overweight (or underweight), hot baths & saunas etc., and tight clothing specially in the groin area. You can easily increase semen volume and sperm count if you cut back on these things. There are also a number of natural supplements and treatments that can not only increase your semen volume and sperm count, but also do wonders for your libido and ensure rock hard erections by increasing blood flow to the penis.

Low libido

- If you are one of the many men living with low libido, you can bring passion back into your life without using potentially harmful drugs. Almost all men who suffer from low libido, suffer from poor blood circulation. There may be several reasons for that, including poor diet, lack of physical activity, stress and certain diseases. Again, a naturopath will be able to help improve circulation, overall health, and therefore libido.
