How many of us have a friend who postpones his required chores so often that if he was asked to join the Procrastinator’s Club, he would reply with something like “not now, but I will look into it sometime in the future.”
This humorous anecdote can also be applied to how many of us men approach our own health. All of us need to make good choices regarding a balanced diet, moderate use of alcohol, regular exercise, and consistent weight management.
Just like “the procrastinator” above, some men are extremely stubborn and short-sighted when it comes to maintaining consistent health, nutritional and lifestyle habits.
Many of us simply think that our lifestyle will never lead to illness or misfortune. We continue the type of lifestyle that puts our health in jeopardy. Once our body breaks down, it may be too late to reverse the negative effects on our bodies.
The result of failing to take a proactive approach to one’s health can be the onset of a disease or even death of a man in his 40’s or 50’s due to a sudden heart attack or massive stroke. This is far too early in a man’s life to suffer such misfortune, and a considerable shock to those who know and love him.
Dr. Jeffrey P. Buch, of Legacy Male Health Institute in Frisco, Texas, wants to stress that men who fail to live healthy lifestyles can impair their sexual function and possibly impact their fertility.
The unfortunate pattern of ignoring one’s health often begins during a man’s teenage years when macho tendencies can lead to promiscuous lifestyles, poor eating and drinking habits, and the lack of proper rest. Some males simply think they are indestructible.
Many such men continue to have little regard for what they are subjecting their bodies to. For example, many years of excessive alcohol use can raise a man’s estrogen level, which in turn can interfere with his hormones and sperm count. Excessive drinking can also lead to atrophy in the testicles, impotence, liver damage and a decrease in sexual interest.
According to Men’s Health Magazine, our brains depend on a variety of nutrients to stay balanced. Men should, therefore, give their bodies the same attention as they do their boats, motorcycles, and cars. A good diet and healthy lifestyle will significantly lower the chances of heart disease.
