MENS HEALTH

Men’s health issues include prostate health, erectile dysfunction, hormone replacement therapy for men, cardiac health, and much more. Ye Olde Pharmacy can assist your physician by providing therapies to mitigate symptoms and discomfort associated with these health issues on a patient by patient basis. We are dedicated to providing the most appropriate traditional and complementary therapies required to optimize men’s health.

INTRODUCTION TO HORMONE REPLACEMENT

Numerous changes are associated with an age-related decline in the hormone testosterone. Some men may go through a rather sudden change in testosterone levels that might correlate with the hormonal changes that women experience at menopause. However, most men have a slower and more subtle hormonal decline experiencing symptoms over a period of time.

Symptoms of testosterone deficiency are often attributed to other problems, denied by the patient, and unrecognized by the physician. Andropause – the male menopausal – may consist of a variety of signs and symptoms.

ANDROPAUSE

When hormones are replaced or restored back to physiologic levels considered normal for younger males, men may experience a dramatic reversal of many of these changes. For optimal results, it is vital that hormone replacement therapy be combined with adequate exercise, proper nutrition, and appropriate use of natural supplements.

ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION

It is estimated that Erectile Dysfunction (ED) affects more than half of all men over 40 years of age, or 140 million men worldwide. However, only one in 20 receives medical treatment, demonstrating the clear need for additional therapies in this area. Sildenafil (Viagra) is one of seven oral medications that are currently commercially available to treat ED. They are not always successful and require approximately one hour to exert their effects. Additionally, sildenafil has been associated with a variety of side effects and drug interactions. Drug-related adverse effects, with headache in up to 23% of patients (placebo, 17%), indigestion in up to 11% (placebo, 7%), and back pain in up to 4.7% (placebo, 0%) were mostly mild to moderate. Also, color vision problems have been reported with sildenafil.

FREE SALIVA HORMONE TEST KIT

If you suffer from fatigue, low sex drive, hot flashes, foggy thinking, stress, mood swings, sleep disturbances, anxiety or depression, it could be your hormones. Saliva testing can help identify hormonal imbalance. It can also be used by your Doctor to help identify and restore hormonal imbalance.

Saliva testing is the most reliable way to measure free, “bio available” hormone activity – hormones actually doing their job at the cell level. Most blood tests do not measure “bio available” hormone levels. Saliva hormones more accurately reflect tissue uptake and response of hormones delivered through the skin in creams, gels or patches. Blood and urine assays significantly underestimate hormones delivered topically, often resulting in overdosing.

Saliva collection is painless – no needles. It negates the need for blood drawing, which often causes stress that can alter test results.

Saliva test kits designed to measure hormone levels are available at Ye Olde Pharmacy free of charge. Saliva collection is easy and can be done any place at your convenience.
