Because June is Men’s Health Month, we compiled resources offered at Natural Bio Health specifically to promote men’s health. According to Men’s Health Network, men die at higher rates than women from nearly all of the top ten causes of death. This includes heart disease, cancer, workplace injuries, stroke, suicide, and HIV/AIDS.
Men are also more likely to stay silent about injuries or illnesses, which often leads to an early death. They don’t attend yearly checkups with their providers nearly as often as women do. In fact, women are 100% more likely to visit their providers for annual preventative checkups.
Natural Bio Health offers a number of services to help men achieve their healthiest life possible. We offer genetic testing, weight loss programs, and hormone therapy to men seeking the path to a healthier lifestyle.

Many men begin experiencing a dip in testosterone levels after they turn 30, and most see a dramatic dip after the age of 50. Low testosterone levels could increase a man’s risk of developing heart disease, obesity, and hypertension. But besides those serious health risks, low testosterone also negatively affects a man’s mood, memory, libido, and energy levels.
Natural Bio Health offers testosterone replacement therapy, which can help return testosterone levels to normal. This could help improve mood, cognition, sexual performance, muscle development, even reduce body fat. Mental health is just as important as physical, and unfortunately, low testosterone affects both aspects of a man’s life. Men are statistically more likely than women to commit suicide. This can likely be linked to depression from low testosterone and men’s resistance to discussing their emotions for fear of being perceived as “weak.”
When the thyroid gland is under-active, it does not produce enough hormones; this condition is known as hypothyroidism. The thyroid hormone is responsible for metabolic processes such as regulating body temperature, breaking down fat, and even protects against cardiovascular disease. Signs of an under-active thyroid are:
- Slow speech and movements
- Arthritis-like pain
Supplementing the hormones your thyroid should produce naturally will help restore cerebral function, fat and cholesterol breakdown, and temperature regulation. This is especially important for men because of the thyroid hormone’s role in cardiovascular health. Without this hormone’s ability to break down fat and cholesterol, you are more at risk of developing cardiovascular complications. After all, heart disease is the #1 killer of men in the United States.
When diet and exercise are not enough to get on track to a healthier lifestyle, genetic predispositions to certain health issues may be at the root of the problem. Many health issues are passed on genetically, such as heart disease, cancer, dementia, stress, anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome, and more. Genetic testing at Natural Bio Health only takes five to ten minutes and provides a clear look at your family history. This is often the key to taking a proactive and preventative approach to your nutritional and exercise plans. We believe your family history and genetics do not have to determine your quality of life. We will work with you to develop a plan to combat these predispositions.
Our non-invasive weight loss programs are always tailored specifically to each client because we understand that everybody is different. We will take into account your unique health conditions, genetic predispositions, and lifestyle habits to craft a program just for you. Depending on your needs and goals, we will recommend a version of one of the following programs:
- 26 Day Program
- 43 Day Program
- Appetite Suppressant Programs
- Weight Loss Counseling
- Low-Calorie Diets
- B12 Injections
- Vitamins / Supplements
We understand that men naturally gain weight as they get older, but we want to help you maintain a healthy and happy life alongside this natural change. Men who struggle with obesity often develop other health complications such as sleep apnea, stroke, heart disease, diabetes, liver disease, and arthritis. Losing weight will also lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
