Most men are wrapped up thinking testosterone is for guys who "can't get it up". When men hit 40, hormonal changes start effecting physical, sexual, and cognitive functions.
Are You Living at Peak Performance?
If you are like most men, you want a strong sex drive, a sharp mind, a fit body, and overall health. You can have all of this even as you grow older—but optimized health starts with you.
Unfortunately, there are myths and misconceptions around how to keep your sex drive strong, how to keep your mind sharp, and how to otherwise be fit and healthy. If you are going to live the life you want now and as you age, you need to the truth about issues like nutrition, exercise, stress, and even male hormones. Ageology is here to help.
The truth is, nutrition and exercise are a vital part of healthy living. The truth is, stress is a real factor that affects every man and if you don't proactively manage stress it will prevent you from achieving optimum health. The truth is, every man eventually sees hormones, like testosterone, decline. And the truth is, there's no quick fix. But the good news is you can take control of your health.
If you are breathing, then you understand the negative impact stress can make on your life. But you may not know that stress can also affect your health. Our goal is to help you understand the causes of stress and how you can manage it. For example, stress can be mental or physical. It is rooted in thoughts, feelings, and fears as well as physical stressors like infection and activity. We'll teach you how to manage stress and how your doctor can help you treat stress so you can optimize your health.
Managing Weight & Nutrition
Did you know, that the average man's weight is increasing at epidemic proportions in the U.S.? Ageology physicians and our resources give you the truth about nutrition. It starts with admitting that ads for miracle cures, like belly fat belts and magic diet pills, are myths.
Ageology exposes the common misconceptions of eating and discusses the excuses we tell ourselves that keep us fat. We'll also teach you how to eat the right foods for your body and show you ways to make that easy. You'll also learn how to choose the best form of exercise for you, whether that's cardio, weight training, yoga, Pilates, boot camp—or something else. We will help you understand the best plan of action, and explain why exercise alone is not enough.
Did you know that almost every man experiences a drop in testosterone after the age of 25? Testosterone levels decline at about 1% to 2% each year after a man hits 25. And by the age of 50, the average man's testosterone level has declined more than 20%. According to the Mayo Clinic, testosterone levels peak during adolescence (hello, puberty) and early adulthood (that growth spurt your high school self never thought would come), and gradually declines after the age of 25 at a rate of typically 1% a year. That's important to understand because testosterone affects your mind, mood, memory, muscles, and mentation.
A recent study adds evidence to the growing body of literature that suggest higher levels of endogenous testosterone may be favorably associated with some key components of healthy aging in men.
At Ageology, we discuss this decline in male hormones and help you recognize when it needs to be treated. We'll also outline the risks for male hormone therapy. You'll even learn how other hormones, like the female hormone estrogen, are present in every man's hormonal makeup and the benefits of maintaining healthy testosterone and estrogen levels, as well as how prostate cancer develops and how testosterone is not the cause.
