TOP HEALTH CONCERNS FOR MEN AND WOMEN
There are a number of health ailments and concerns that disproportionately affect women. Knowing that men are an important part of the population, we’ll bring these same issues full circle to show how each topic can affect us all.
Depression- At first glance, it may seem that men are not depressed as often as women. However, a closer look via Symptometry provides key differences. This illness is often harder to diagnose in men due to several factors. For example, men tend to mask depression with anger or aggression, by self-medicating with recreational / illicit drugs or take up new negative behaviors. Gambling, aggressively working out and taking up sports are just a few of the new hobbies that can begin.
Women can also pick up self-destructive hobbies, but most often tend to struggle through their current work loads, become withdrawn or ‘moody.’ They can also add new responsibilities (most often centered on caring for others or “fixing” something about themselves) to redirect attention.
Luckily, there are lasting solutions through cell nourishment (diet), nurturing and ionization. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO THE FULL PODCAST ON DEPRESSION.
Osteoporosis- Did you know women reach their peak bone mass at about age 18 while men reach theirs at 20? Did you know chocolate and athletics both play a role in making our bones more vulnerable to osteoporosis? While this disease is less often diagnosed in men because it is (unfortunately) thought of as “a woman’s disease;” genetics & diet both play a role in prevention and cure for both sexes.

Weight Loss- While body type and weight preferences vary from culture to culture, our weight and where it is heaviest on our bodies, has a lasting impact on our ability to stay pain, discomfort and disease free. Research shows that while men tend to prefer meat-rich diets, women often consume carbohydrate rich diets. Additionally, women tend to eat more when they face unfortunate circumstances and stressful situations; however, this does not have to cause weight gain. For example, in working to lose weight, both genders can avoid foods that retain water (i.e. watermelon). Learn more weight shedding best practices.
