Men’s Health Problem – Erectile Dysfunction
ED becomes more common as men age and is one of the most concerning symptoms in men’s health. But, male sexual dysfunction is not a natural part of aging. If you are always stressed, pushing your body harder without enough rest and recovery. Your body uses most of its cholesterol to make Cortisol, the stress hormone. This robs your body of the raw material it needs to make testosterone.
Additionally, diet, lifestyle and exercise can influence testosterone production positively. If you are sedentary, your body will convert more testosterone to estrogen, creating more belly fat, gynomastic (male breasts) and lower testosterone levels.
Dr. Francis focuses on more than just hormone replacement for men, ensuring that the underlying causes also get addressed so you can feel, perform and look your best.
