In my clinic, while I do see some men as clients, the numbers are definitely in favour of women. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, women make up about 62% of visits alternative therapists such as Naturopaths, Nutritionists and other practitioners, but only 38% of men. But I see over 80% women, and less than 20% men.
Other statistics show that men are 3 times more likely to die of coronary heart disease than women, twice as likely to get skin cancer and 3 times more likely to commit suicide, and many other health statistics going against them. All the more reason for men to seek preventative assistance!
Perhaps a reason why is that men do not want to be seen as "weak" or suggesting that there may be something wrong with their health! I'm sure the women, children, families, employers & friends around such men would actually prefer them to be alive and healthy instead of suffering health conditions because of embarrassment or any other reason (ie, an excuse!).
Another reason may be that more men are working and can't get the time off to see a practitioner. I am aware that most people work business hours, and as a result I am available for evening and weekend consultations, or even online via Skype or Zoom, to fit in with your busy lifestyles!
Men's diets are known to not be as good as for women in general! As a result, men's health can be affected. However, good food choices can still be made in a working or away-from-home environment - if men have the right information as to what their food choices are really doing to their health, and what they can do about it.
Men, your health should be a bit higher up your list of priorities! Your family wants to see you healthy too! Men, just do it!
Whether it is for "secret mens business" issues, mental health, weight gain, stress, pains, gut issues, or anything else, I can help reduce these symptoms, and give you your health back! I'd like to improve the ratio of men coming into the clinic to improve their health!
Ladies, please insist that the men in your life seek professional health advice when needed, or even for prevention, as improving their diets, lifestyle, sleep and health can be achieved a lot quicker if looked at earlier!
