Men’s Health

 

Men, we know you don’t like to go to the doctor. You have the strength to deny discomfort and the optimism to believe it will go away in time. But just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. Why suffer and let your ailments keep you from fully enjoying your life and performing at your best? Don’t wait until your small nagging issues turn into bigger more serious problems. Be proactive and let Dr. Walters and The Source Wellness Center help you restore your health using natural therapies so you don’t have to pay to take prescription drugs for the rest of your life.

 

Prevention

Your body is like a car. To keep it looking and running like new, it requires regular upkeep. Your current regiment may not be enough to prevent heart disease, prostate problems, cancer, or other chronic diseases that develop over time. Dr. Walters graduated first in his class and is an expert in preventative medicine. He will help you modify and optimize your current regiment and work with you to maximize your health and prevent your body from becoming a clunker as you age.

 

Prostate Health

The three most common prostate conditions are benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), prostate cancer, and prostatitis. The older a man gets, the greater his risk for developing BPH with symptoms starting after age 50. If that doesn’t stop and make you think then take a second to consider that roughly 60% of men will have BPH by age 60 and 80% by age 80 according to the US National Library of Medicine. How will BPH affect you? Symptoms include difficulty starting a urine stream, weak urine flow, not feeling fully voided after urinating, dribbling after urination, an urge to urinate soon after urinating, having to get up multiple times in the night to urinate, and pain with urination.

 

Now that I’ve got you thinking about your health, consider that the symptoms of prostate cancer are the same as BPH and according to the American Cancer Society, 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point in their life. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind lung cancer. About 1 man in 36 will die of prostate cancer. Those with a family history of prostate cancer are at a higher risk of developing the condition.

 

Dr. Walters can help you avoid pharmaceuticals and invasive BPH treatments like transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) by utilizing natural therapies to restore normal function. Do not wait until you are having symptoms of BPH. We can help you take the necessary steps to prevent BPH.

 

Prostatitis is inflammation of the prostate. This can be an acute or chronic condition. Typical symptoms include pain and burning with urination and ejaculation, increased urgency to urinate, needing to urinate more frequently, testicular pain, low back pain, and all the symptoms of BPH. According to the National Institute of Health 50% of men will experience prostatitis during their lifetime.

 

If you are currently experiencing BHP, prostate cancer, or prostatitis, please call The Source Wellness Center now to learn how Dr. Walters can help you to restore your health using natural therapies. Do not wait until you have prostate symptoms. Dr. Walters can also help you take steps now to prevent developing prostate problems later in life and minimize your encounters with the dreaded finger.

 

Heartburn/Reflux

Did you know it is not recommended to take antacid medication for more than two weeks? It leads to poor digestion, nutrient deficiencies, immune imbalances, weakened bones, and other issues in the body. Did you know that most cases of heartburn are actually due to not enough stomach acid? Acid levels in the stomach regulate the valve between the stomach and esophagus. When acid levels drop, the valve does not stay shut, allowing acid to bubble up into the esophagus. The esophagus does not have the protective coat the stomach does, so it causes tissue damage and pain. Taking antacid medication neutralizes or prevents acid production so there is no acid to go into the esophagus. However, we need acid for digesting and absorbing the nutrients our body needs to function. Dr. Walters will help you identify food and environmental triggers and optimize your physiology to maintain normal acid levels and the ability to digest and absorb needed nutrients.

 

Muscle and Joint Pain

Are you suffering from muscle and joint pain? Don’t just “tough it out” trying to ignore the pain as it reduces your performance and enjoyment of life so you can feel like a tough guy. True grit is having the mental toughness to address these issues before they get any worse so you can perform with optimal performance. Whether it is due to structural, neurological, or nutritional imbalances, Dr. Walters can help stay at your best for longer.

 

High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)

Hypertension is known as the silent killer, because it can occur for years with no symptoms but lead to a heart attack or stroke. Medications block a step in the pathways the body utilizes to raise blood pressure, but does not address the nutritional deficiencies and excesses, structural imbalances, mental/emotional stress, and environmental factors that are causing the high blood pressure. Dr. Walters will work with you to indentify the SOURCE of imbalance and restore health using natural therapies without the side effects of medications.

 

Heart Disease

Cardiovascular disease is the #1 killer in Montana, America, and the world. Statistically, over half of all adults in the U.S. will die of cardiovascular disease. We tend to think of this as a disease that affects us when we are older. While it is true we see heart attacks and strokes later in life, they have been in the making for decades. The early stages of the arterial plaques we find in heart disease have been found as early as age 3. Those plaques accumulate with time until function is lost.

You may be well on your way toward a heart attack and managing cholesterol levels is not enough. Over half the people who have a heart attack have normal cholesterol levels at the time of the heart attack. Dr. Walters will assess your risk using lab tests that are more predictive of heart disease than cholesterol. He will provide you with a customized treatment plan to reduce your risk factors and improve your cardiovascular health long term.

 

Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune reaction that kills the cells that produce insulin. The cause of the autoimmune disease needs to be addressed to prevent other autoimmune disease from developing over time. With proper diet, exercise, and supportive therapies the amount of insulin needed and long term risks can be minimized. Many common diet recommendations for diabetics can contribute to tissue damage due to increased blood sugar levels.

 

Type 2 diabetes is a lifestyle related condition where the cells in the body are resistant to insulin, causing chronically high blood sugar levels. The high insulin and sugar levels cause damage to nerves and blood vessels. Over time if not controlled there is a high risk of kidney failure, heart disease, blindness, peripheral neuropathy, fungal infections, wounds that won’t heal, and gangrene requiring amputation. Common medications like metformin will slow the progression of the condition, but do not reverse it. Dr. Walters has helped many people with type 2 diabetes reverse their condition without continuing to need medication.

 

Gastro-Intestinal Disorders

Whether it is too much, not enough, topside, bottom end, or somewhere in between, Dr. Walters can help. The GI tract is essential for our health. It digests and absorbs our nutrients, eliminates wastes, produces neurotransmitters that affect our brain function, contains 75% of our immune system, and houses and feeds symbiotic bacteria. Dr. Walters will focus on identifying irritants and providing treatments to restore normal physiology as opposed to simply blocking symptoms.

 

Autoimmune Disorders

Conventional treatments focus on suppressing the immune system and blocking symptoms as they arise. Dr. Walters will help you address and correct WHY your immune system is attacking your body. This is the difference between treating a disease and restoring health.
