Men’s Health Part 2: 6 Ways Stress Affects Men’s Health

I am on a mens health kick this month.  I want to get men thinking more about their wellness and doing something to improve their health.  If you are reading this article, please consider coming to us at the WBHC to let us help you get your health back on track.

Stress the unimaginable foe, the unseen, uninvited guest, some kind of a wrathful divinity. Stress significantly impacts men’s health. Luckily, more research is being done on the nature of stress and anxiety and presently better diagnosis is being done and we are gaining a better understanding of it. Stress indeed can be downright strange.

In this article, we are going to delve deeper into the mysteries of stress and why it is of great concern. Here, are some reasons why stress needs to be managed and kept a tight lid.

Stress can change your taste in women

Do you find that your taste in women has changed? Stress can influence a man’s decision as well. It has also been noticed that men self-medicate with poor decisions that further mess up their judgment, e.g. taking drugs, binging on alcohol and risky sexual behaviors.

Men take stress harder than women

According to the common notion, men are viewed as “rocks,” impervious to feelings and most importantly stress. However, recent studies have determined that women indeed, do fair better in dealing with stress than men. In addition, in relation to gender differences, the effects of stress manifest themselves negatively on men’s health. In fact, men under stress or dealing with depression have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease or suffered a heart attack, according to these studies.

High anxiety levels can be life-threatening

Increased anxiety levels emanating from stressful events like the loss of a loved one, or loss of a job, marital separation or divorce can have serious physical and mental consequences. Heart disease in men has also been linked to these major stress triggers. Major depression soon follows, leading to substance abuse and poor dieting. Suicidal tendencies also follow.

Stress makes men eat their feelings

Similar to women, increased stress in men, negatively affects their lifestyle and behavior choices as well. Irregular eating habits are also a cause, skipping meals and eating more consuming extra calories.

There is increased risk of obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease and even stroke all at ones!

Stress is bad for your heart

There is no denying it now, stress doesn’t equal a healthy heart. From intensive research done, high stress increases the risk for coronary heart disease. Moreover, stress actually manifest themselves physically in your body. Stress triggers inflammation, which traps cholesterol particles and they get deposited in blood vessels.

Stress can lead to belly fat and diabetes type 2

Aside from poor eating habits, stress also results in belly fat deposition, a side effect of consuming calories and also due to increased cortisol levels (the stress hormone). In addition, elevated stress levels can also cause a spike in insulin levels, which is a major risk factor for metabolic disorders and type 2 diabetes.

Stress and Muscle Mass

Stress affects the regular uptake of protein to muscle tissues, leading to loss of muscle mass.

Final thoughts, if you are experiencing stressful situations or diagnosed with stress, take the opportunity to explore relaxation and other meditation techniques to protect yourself, body and mind together.

Stress is #1 cause of all disease

We all have stress, but managing stress is the issue.  How one person manages it versus another person can be the biggest difference.  Stress can manifest in many ways, being dehydrated, not getting good sleep, driving in traffic, your kids, your work schedule, not eating a good diet, computers and technology etc etc.  So think about that.  Nobody will have zero stress even if they say they do.  Its impossible.  So find ways to reduce stress.  Deep breathing often throughout the day, yoga, exercise, prayer, meditation are a few good ways you can reduce stress.  So find something that works for you.

 

Men’s Health Part 1: Where are the Men?

Come on Guys, where are you at?  Why is most of my clientele women?  Where are the men? Why are you not taking care of your health?

Reports have shown that women visit doctors more often than men, in other words, women can be described as ‘greater hypochondriacs?’ despite being in good shape, women will still ‘feel’ and/or complain about their health. Men, on the other hand, will not even complain when they have an issue with their health and are less likely to seek medical attention when they really need it.

Doctors and physicians are concerned by men apparent lack of awareness when it comes to health and their less reluctance of seeking medical help.

What could be the apparent cause?

According to health experts, women find it easy disclosing the nature of their health and what ails them. Indeed, this begs the question, why? Steps need to be taken, men should be encouraged to report health issues early enough in their lives and forestall judgments meted out by increasing cases of men health related problems.

The Health sector should make it easier for men to come forth and access healthcare, whenever and however they can much like it is for women. Equity is the basis here.

Here are some of the possible reasons:

  1. In some instances, it’s deeply psychological. It’s not about the awareness at all, but the fact that a man admits to something, he will feel it’ll be taken as a sign of weakness among their peers. Moreover, this is compounded by the fact that doctors prescribe you something, then, later on, tell you “come back after a week if you don’t feel better.” Men will not admit defeat (i.e. the drugs not working and should go back to the doctor), admitting defeat is often a sign of weakness according to the male psyche.
  2. Another possible reason, imagine visiting a doctor for surgery only to find out 9 out of 10 waiting patients are women, as a man, they’ll possibly say “I’ll come back another day”, that other day could possibly be your last.
  3. In the social scene, it is easily noted that there is unfair bias when it comes to the creation of awareness. A majority of the awareness program debuts womens’ illnesses, from cosmetics to fashion and even health. Take, for instance, breast cancer and cervical cancer versus prostate and testicular cancer. It is shocking, that for every seven anti-cancer drugs out there, there is one prostate cancer drug.
  4. According to men, health and other aspects of life like nutrition, are often black and white (i.e. either extremely ill or not). Women, on the other hand, view health and possibly everything else in a wider spectrum.
  5. This could also be partially blamed on the fact that men understand that doctors cannot do much to help them in their situation. Moreover, men tend to be more practical, if they discover a certain treatment is hopeless or causes adverse effects, then they most likely won’t warrant further inquiry.

The reason i am writing this blog today is because i want the men to step up their game and start caring about their health more.  You guys need to be more preventative and do some of the same things the women are doing.  Quit acting like you don’t care about your health.  If you are the main provider for you and your family, your family needs you to be healthy.  Its not a sign of weakness, its a sign that you care about your health and that you want to prevent disease from existing.

If you are man, call us here at the WBHC and set up your appt today.  We will love to help you.
