Alchemy of Health Webinar Series – Is Andropause a Myth in the Ageing Male?
Why is it Important?
As a man ages, his energy levels and muscle tone might spiral downwards at first, followed by a lack of enthusiasm and decreased interest in sex. At midlife, men are as susceptible to hormone changes as seen in women at menopause.
Androgen deficiency in the ageing male (ADAM), also known as Andropause or male menopause signifies a dip in key male hormones such as Testosterone and DHEA. These key male hormones work in synergy with other sex hormones like estrogen and DHT as well as neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin.
By the time a man reaches his 50’s, his Testosterone dips and estrogens can become more dominant leading to symptoms of moodiness, fatigue, loss of libido, what some would call “the grumpy man’s syndrome”.
Life’s stresses and lack of exercise are some of the factors that impact a man’s stamina and virility.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- The plays of hormones in the ageing male
- The andropause picture
- Interplay of sex hormones and mood changes
