Stress

Stress underlies most of the psychological, social, and medical problems people face in contemporary society. If we can get a handle on stress, we can take care of most of the problems we face in our lives. By some estimates, up to 80 percent of all illnesses are stress induced. Stress-induced illnesses include: heart disease, prostate and breast cancer, depression, diabetes, arthritis, and obesity. By shifting from being at the mercy of your stress to being in control of your stress you can affect a dramatic increase in energy, and as a result you will be less likely to get sick.

Depression

Depression is becoming increasingly common as stress levels increase and our coping skills are overwhelmed. Men and women often experience depression differently. Women often “act in” their unhappiness and become sad and withdrawn. Men often “act out” their unhappiness and become angry and blaming. Women are far more likely to get help because they reach out to others. Men are more likely to suffer in silence and push others away. As a result the suicide rate for men is 4 to 18 times higher for men than it is for women. If you think you, or someone you love, is depressed take the quiz.

PainFeatured

Chronic Pain

Pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. 116 million people suffer from chronic pain. Low back pain was the most common (27%), followed by severe headache or migraine pain (15%), neck pain (15%) and facial ache or pain (4%). An estimated 20% of American adults (42 million people) report that pain or physical discomfort disrupts their sleep a few nights a week or more. Many people take drugs for pain, but there are newer, more effective treatments for most people. Is chronic pain a problem for you or someone love? Take the quiz.

Male Menopause

Male Menopause (Andropause) begins with hormonal, physiological, and chemical changes that occur in all men generally between the ages of forty and fifty-five, though it can occur as early as thirty-five or as late as sixty-five. The purpose of Andropause is to signal the end of the first part of a man’s life and prepare him for the second half. It is not the beginning of the end, as many fear, but the end of the beginning. It is the passage to the most passionate, powerful, productive, and purposeful time of a man’s life. Are you or someone you care about going through Andropause? Take the quiz and find out.

Irritable Male Syndrome

IMS can occur at any time in a man’s life, though it is most common between the ages of 14 and 25 when testosterone is on the rise and between 40 and 55 when it is declining. The most common causes include hormonal fluctuations, biochemical changes, increasing stress, and changes in the male role or self-image. Common symptoms include, hypersensitivity, anxiety, frustration, and anger. It can start out mild, but can become increasingly serious if not treated. Are you concerned?
