Men and women have many of the same health problems, but these can affect men differently. Men's health'issues' often tend to focus on musculoskeletal problems or lifestyle-related conditions, but there is more to it than that!
Precisely because of our different anatomies, disease processes may manifest differently in men. Some conditions occur more often in men, such as high blood pressure, ankylosing spondylitis and problems related to excess alcohol consumption. Other conditions are specific to male patients, such as erectile dysfunction and prostate cancer.
Part of being healthy is understanding risk factors; recognising that these can be managed to prevent illness and disease. Preventative treatments are highly beneficial, including herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation, and physical therapies such as acupuncture and massage. Simple diet and lifestyle measures will also have a huge impact on overall health and wellbeing. For existing conditions, specific treatment options are important - both to reduce symptoms and address underlying causes.
