In this episode, Dr. Mottley discusses some of the debilitating effects of andropause or 'male-menopause' and addresses some of the potential solutions for men who suffer from this problem.
Some of the emotional and physical symptoms of man-o-paue include:
- Low self-confidence
- Poor self-image
- Loss of muscle tone
- Increased fat (particularly around the waist)
- Physical weakness
- Sexual problems
- Increased sensitivity to being challenged
- Poor decision-making
Dr. Mottley recommends that individuals with these symptoms see a knowledgable medical practitioner to be properly diagnosed. Then, the individual should also work with a psychologist to deal with emotional issues; a nutritionist to improve correct food choices; and, a physical fitness trainer to be coached on the correct exercises which would help to treat these issues.
He recommends that listeners conduct their own research and warns that the information in this podcast is for informational/educational purposes only.
