Men’s Wellness Q&A
Men’s Wellness Q&A
What is men’s wellness?
Men’s health refers to gender-specific health issues and requirements for men. Just like women, men have specific organs and hormones that change over time and may require extra maintenance as they change.
At European Wellness Cosmedical, Britta takes men’s specific needs into account and can treat men’s health issues in ways that appeal to them. She helps you better understand your body changes so you can better manage them to maintain your health. First and foremost, she encourages you to lead a healthy lifestyle. She might recommend:
- Stopping smoking
- Cutting back on alcohol consumption
- Exercising more often
- Improving your diet
- Visiting a doctor for checkups more often
For further and more specific health improvements, Britta might recommend getting treatments at European Wellness Cosmedical. She offers several treatments for aging men who want better health and wellness.
How does men’s health decline with age?
There are several ways in which your health declines with age. While some health issues aren’t gender-specific, others are. In many cases, non-gender-specific health issues affect you in different ways because of your gender.
At European Health and Wellness, Britta can help you deal with several men’s health issues. While urinary incontinence is more prominent in women, men can struggle with the condition because of certain prostate issues or a general weakening of bladder muscles. Urinary incontinence causes you to struggle to hold your urine when you get the urge to go. It can also result in urine leaking when you laugh, sneeze, or cough.
Another men’s health issue is the gradual decline of testosterone, a prominent male hormone. Losing testosterone can cause erectile dysfunction, fatigue, depression, and other changes that can impact your life.
What are some treatments available for men’s health?
At European Wellness Cosmedical, Britta offers several treatments to improve men’s health specifically. Of course, men are welcome to get any available treatment for skin improvement, weight loss, anti-aging, and more. As a man, you might be particularly interested in:

Erectile Dysfunction Q&A
What is erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction occurs when you’re unable to get or maintain an erection long enough to have sex. Many men consider it a sign of the natural aging process, but it affects men of all ages, and in some cases, points to a more serious underlying health problem.
Most men experience erection-related difficulties from time-to-time, either as a result of poor diet, stress, or alcohol consumption. If your problem persists or continues for weeks or even months at a time, it’s important to seek professional help.
What are the symptoms of erectile dysfunction?
The symptoms of erectile dysfunction vary in severity, but common telltale signs include:
- Trouble getting an erection
- Trouble maintaining an erection
- Softer erections
- Less girthy erections
- Reduced penile sensitivity
As the condition gets worse, you might also experience a decrease in sexual desire or arousal.
What causes erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction can occur for a variety of reasons, but it’s usually the result of an underlying physical ailment, such as:
- Heart disease
- Metabolic syndrome
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Peyronie’s disease
- Tobacco use
- Alcohol consumption
- Sleep disorders
Psychological factors can also play a role. For example, you might experience erectile dysfunction if you’re depressed, anxious, or overly stressed.
Is there any way to prevent erectile dysfunction?
There’s no way to prevent erectile dysfunction entirely, but there are steps you can take to lower your risk. Britta recommends living a healthy lifestyle, which includes eating a balanced, nutritious diet, exercising regularly, and getting plenty of sleep. You should also make an effort to manage chronic medical conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure. It’s also important you reduce stress, avoid tobacco products, and limit your alcohol intake. These measures can significantly improve your symptoms and sex life.
How is erectile dysfunction treated?
Treatment for erectile dysfunction depends on the severity of your symptoms:
Nutrition plans and programs
Whether you want to lose weight, maintain a healthy weight, or feel better in general, Britta can design a personalized nutrition and wellness program to help you meet your goals.
Bioidentical hormone replacement
If you have symptoms of testosterone loss that affect your day-to-day life, Britta might recommend using bioidentical hormones as treatment. Taking testosterone derived from plants can help ease your symptoms without causing new symptoms or health complications.
