You found this site because you heard about the great benefits of weight management and balancing your body and its hormones. Research reveals evidence that our diet and hormone imbalance may be the root cause of many chronic health issues you could be experiencing. Furthermore, musculoskeletal imbalance and obesity hinders us from maximizing our potential in activities, in sports - in life.
Your internal and external body should exist in harmony with each other as well as your mind. When levels of each hormone are in the right proportions, body systems are stable. Your muscles and bones likewise allow pain-free movement. Hormone deficiencies and excesses as well as musculoskeletal asymmetry can cause chronic symptoms and raise risks of disease. Some men feel aches, pains, fatigue, tired, and gain weight. Others become moody, depressed, and lose sex drive or experience repetitive strains or sprains.
Weight gain, and obesity, is simply an accumulation of stored fat that negatively affects your good health. Obesity can accelerate the degeneration of your joints and task your muscles as well. Excess fat will eventually lead to other medical problems that affect your heart, lungs or other organs. And excess fat can also negatively affect your body's hormone balance.
The symptoms from both hormonal shifts and excess body fat can be strong and make you feel out of control or unable to reach peak performance. As a man, you might not function at full capacity in the gym, during sports, or in daily life.
If you have tried to figure out what is happening, tried to lose weight only to gain it back, or treated your symptoms in ways that don't work, then contact Dr. Potochny to review your hormone, weight and sports medicine needs. Your consultation may be the first step to looking and feeling better.
