June is Men’s Health Month; The Importance of Chiropractic Medicine in Men’s Healthcare Treatments
Alternative medicine and chiropractic care go hand in hand in the treatment of the top medical ailments that affect men. In honor of Men’s Health Month, we’re showing you just how alternative medicine and chiropractic care can treat many of those ailments without the use of drugs or pharmaceuticals.
Sleep Apnea affects 12-18 million Americans every year, and men are twice as likely to have sleep apnea than women. One natural treatment for sleep apnea is adjusting your position when you sleep to elevate your head. You will want to avoid sleeping on your back as it has been shown to make snoring symptoms worse. Another natural, alternative treatment to sleep apnea is the use of a humidifier in your bedroom or consider using eucalypts oils to naturally open airways. You can always consult with your chiropractor on the best oils to use when sleeping.

Common Issues & Ailments That Affect Men
A very common complaint and medical issue with men is lower back pain. This may be triggered by traditional “man tasks” including heavy lifting, bending over, slouching in a desk or while standing and poor posture. Chiropractic care as a treatment is the best alternative medicine for lower back pain. Your chiropractor will be able to best advise you on the appropriate treatment for your pain.
A very common ailment is acid reflux and while there are many medications that can treat the side affects, natural remedies produce the least amount of additional side affects. Supplements and herbs have been recommended in the treatment of acid reflux. Other proven alternative care treatments include hypnotherapy and acupuncture.
Heart disease is this nation’s #1 killer and while alternative medicine is not always recommended for the treatment of heart disease, it is the preferred method of decreasing your risk of developing heart disease. Diet and reducing stress can great help prevent heart disease. In addition, reducing your stress will also help control your blood pressure.
Reducing stress, eating a healthy diet and alternative medical care can all be used as to prevent the top men’s health concerns including stroke, weight issues, diabetes and depression. Consult with your physician or alternative lifestyle provider on the best ways to prevent health issues in the future through natural, drug-free, healthy preventative care.
