Finding Your Way Back To Health

finding way back to healthStress can make us get lost on our track of good health and we tend to have an unhealthy lifestyle.  Our lives become so hectic such that we don’t bother if we make good choices and we indulge in unhealthy habits a such as drinking more alcohol, smoking,  eating foods with more sugar and fat,  stop going to the gym and this has made you gain excess weight.  This unhealthy behavior plus stress has made it difficult for you to sleep well and it has really affected your health. All you need now is to stop and reevaluate your life and see how you can find your way back to health.

Finding your way back to health is the best way possible, but it can be difficult to get back on track.  Some simple ways that can help include:

  • Let go of the unhealthy thoughts that are causing you to have much stress and making your life hectic.  The mind fabricates all the unhealthy thoughts of what you can or can’t do and who you are and this will make you never to get back on track.  The thoughts will always seem true to you so you need to learn how to look beyond them and take control of your life.  Allan Lokos says “Don’t believe everything you think. Thoughts are just that – thoughts.”
  • You also need to realize that it is ok to start over again and get healthy and fit again. Failing or falling off the health track doesn’t mean that you can’t go back to it and more so many people have been there. Therefore, change your mindset on how you approach life and ways that will improve your lifestyle. Cleanse yourself, let go of all the limitations and keep off the things or people making your life hectic and start over.
  • Take a slow and steady approach to weight loss because they are more sustainable rather than the crash diets which will make you lose weight but not in a healthy way and are not sustainable.   Have a good relationship with food by choosing healthy, balanced and avoid foods that are processed as they contain a lot of sugar, salt, and fat. Eat more of vegetables and fruits as they are filling and they have low amounts of calories which will help in losing weight. Cut down on your alcohol as it contains empty calories, which make you fat rather take more water. Start exercising in small bits and with time you will get there.
  • Get support from family or a friend and let them know that you are back on the track to getting healthy. They need to support you in all the best ways possible, such as motivating you, joining in your walks or exercises. They will also check on you regularly and see if you are on track
  • Lastly, don’t give up. The journey will be frustrating and you may get angry and wish to give up, but you need to remember why you are on this track. It will be worth it at the end if only you stick to what to healthy ways.

 

Men’s Health Part 3: How to Keep Men’s Hormones in Balance

A man’s body is ruled by hormones, who am I kidding, of course, all bodies are ruled by hormones. However, in the male species, there are key hormones that deeply influence the nature of man. Cortisol levels, Testosterone and the growth hormones have a deep and profound impact on a man’s health. Therefore, maintaining regular levels of these hormones is crucial.

Scientists have suggested that there is a direct link to looking fit and young, full of health to our body hormones. Most importantly, the three hormones mentioned above are the ‘dons’ of health. They determine how you’ll look, feel (mood) and live.

Manliness is all about Testosterone, therefore, it would be prudent if we began with it. Testosterone is basically responsible for a man’s confidence, drive, and desire for sex. Unfortunately, as men age, testosterone levels dip by about 1% per year. Too bad, I suppose the notion that “men get better with age” is a fallacy. Moreover, testosterone levels also drop when a man gets married and after having kids.

The curious part is that men aren’t experiencing low T levels just because of aging anymore. Testosterone declines are being affected by unhealthy habits and modern day ultra fast pace of life. For instance, lack of adequate sleep and increased stress levels lower testosterone levels. In addition, modern poor and unhealthy eating habits are also a major cause.

Insulin, Testosterone and Growth Hormone

Eating too many carbohydrates raises insulin levels, and insulin, on the other hand, has a negatively impacts both the growth and testosterone hormone. On the other hand, not eating the right amount and kind of fats and oils or by not getting enough of the healthy kind of cholesterol will also keep your testosterones low.

Low Testosterone levels Impact on Health

The impact of low testosterone levels on your health can be a domino effect. First, your sex drive may fade. In addition, you’ll have a harder time getting in shape when you exercise. You may also experience fatigue.

A curious evolutionary reaction suggests that women are less attracted to male partners with low Testosterone levels, also they may have a harder time conceiving due to their partner’s drop in sperm count.

Low Testosterone levels are also responsible for serious health issues like obesity, heart disease, sleep apnea, and other chronic diseases

How the Growth Hormone Affects Men’s Health

Just as its name suggests, the growth hormone helps in your physical growth. Its levels usually spike during puberty, where we experience major physical changes in our bodies. As we age, growth hormone drops and this affects body composition in a number of ways. Growth hormone is also responsible for workout recovery and it also acts as a testosterone booster. Side effects associated with increased growth hormone levels include increased blood pressure and spikes in blood sugar as well.

How Cortisol Affects Men’s Health

Your level of cortisol is inversely related to your growth hormone levels. That is, low cortisol levels boost growth hormone. Cortisol is also referred to as the stress hormone. Increases levels of stress lower your cortisol levels.

High cortisol levels can lead to weight gain, in the wrong places, like in the lower abdomen and thigh region and have further been linked to heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers.
