International Men’s Health Week June 10 – 16, 2019
Let's shine a light on men’s health and make it count!
We get many men who do not like to go to the doctors. We can share with you that most men have naps on our tables and actually enjoy coming in for sessions to reduce stress, relieve pain, get help dropping some pounds and improve sleep. Read some of the stories from men feeling grateful they were proactive in their well-being.
Men’s Health Week is celebrated annually around the world during the week preceding and including Father’s Day. Men’s Health Week honours the importance of men’s health and wellness.
Here are some statistics compiled by Men's Health Foundation in Canada:
- 54% of Canadian men are unhealthy sleepers
- 59% of Canadian men don’t exercise enough
- 62% of Canadian men are unhealthy eaters
- 39% of Canadian men have an unhealthy alcohol consumption
- 20% of Canadian men still smoke

- 25% of Canadian men are considered healthy/very healthy

Let's help reduce male cardiovascular risk factors, improve sleep, eliminate pain and reduce stress. And of course, for those wanting to be fathers, maximize male fertility.
Making babies? It takes healthy sperm + healthy egg + a healthy uterine environment to make a healthy baby.
Unfortunately, the man is often overlooked or ignored in this healthy baby equation. Fortunately, more research and fertility specialists are advocating men to be proactive and get in better health to impact their sperm quality to increase their partner's chance of conceiving, and a healthy baby at that.
Did you know that unexplained infertility, miscarriages and poor embryo development in an IVF cycle can be related to the male, even if the semen analysis 'looks normal'?
Are you aware that men over age 35 can increase the risk of your child having health issues? Even though men can reproduce much older than their female counter-parts, the health of their offspring can be impacted.
The good news is through diet, lifestyle, antioxidants and acupuncture you can prevent and often reverse poor sperm quality.

And you do not have to be coming in for fertility. If you are a dude and you want to have more energy, better sleep, improved mood and even a better erection then we want to see you regardless of your baby-making plans. An FYI... erectile dysfunction (ED) can be a sign of cardiovascular disease which is why we mentioned it.
