In celebration of Men’s Health Week (the week before and ending on Father’s Day) the Cenegenics Nourishing Wellness Medical Center has some good news for men aged forty-plus. Studies show that men with low testosterone live shorter lives, but they will greatly benefit from testosterone treatment if clinically indicated. Testosterone is one of the main keys for building muscle, retaining cognitive and sexual performance in men. By their early 30s, men begin losing testosterone at a rate of one to two percent a year. Experts say as many as 25 million American males between ages 40 and 55 are experiencing some degree of male menopause known as Andropause.
Dr. Allen Peters, Medical Director of the Cenegenics Nourishing Wellness Medical Center in Redondo Beach discovered this personally. After 30 years of working as an Emergency Room physician, Dr. Peters began showing signs of low energy, muscle weakness, reduced libido and depression. Upon leaving the ER and completing training in Age Management Medicine, he discovered he was experiencing Andropause (the gradual decline of hormone levels in men). Through changes in diet, lifestyle and natural hormone replacement therapy, Dr. Peters is now a walking advertisement for the benefits of the Cenegenics program. He has his passion for life back and an exciting career helping men and women age well and live healthier lives!
