I work with both women and men. I do see mostly women in my practice, but what usually happens is that we work with the woman and we start getting her more balanced and when she’s feeling better the husband notices and starts getting excited about it and then he comes in. I’m seeing this as more and more of a trend that the woman will start getting more balanced in her life and the man will notice that and make an appointment and come in.

I do have quite a number of men that have found me off the Internet–they’ve looked at my website. They come in with a variety of things; for them sometimes a low motivation and drive, we look at their testosterone. Men go through something called andropause–the women go through menopause–and with men it’s a bit different. When their testosterone decreases it’s usually a slow decrease. With women it’s more of an abrupt decrease. That’s why she shows more of the symptomology.

Men will come in needing to check their hormones and also we want to look at their annual PSA levels [to check for prostate cancer risk], CBC [complete blood count], and chem panels. We also want to look at the thyroid. We have had a lot of men recently who’ve been diagnosed with hypothyroidism.
