Happy Men’s Day!
Umm, say What?
Well, we bet you didn’t expect to hear that, did you?
It seems like International Men’s Day often goes unnoticed, despite being recognized internationally. It’s a shame that in today’s world, where social media reigns supreme, men still don’t get the appreciation they deserve. This speaks volumes about how our society needs to evolve and start considering men’s health.
But hey, it’s not all doom and gloom. Thankfully, there are many people, and companies out there that are celebrating Men’s Day and acknowledging the importance of men’s health including us, Ayushakti Ayurved! So, to all the men out there, this one’s for you.
Society often expects men to be strong and stoic, which can lead to feelings of isolation and a reluctance to seek help when it comes to health issues. The mindset of our society, as we always say in Hindi, is “mard ko dard nahi hota” (translation in English: “men don’t feel pain”). We need to break this thinking and start acknowledging that men are also human, and they have the complete right to show their pain and suffering, and it is normal to cry out loud.
The pressure that society places on men can be overwhelming. From the expectations of being the breadwinner to the pressure to conform to traditional notions of masculinity, men often find themselves struggling to live up to these societal standards. This can take a toll on their mental and emotional well-being, leading to stress, anxiety, and even depression.
6 Common Health Problems that Men Experience
Let’s talk about some of the common health problems that men face.
Did you know that November 19th is celebrated as International Men’s Day? It’s a day to celebrate the achievements and contributions of men in our society. But it’s also a day to raise awareness about the issues that men face. One of the most important issues is men’s health. So, in this blog, we’re going to talk about some of the common health problems that men face.
1. Heart Disease
Heart disease is the leading cause of death among men. It’s caused by a buildup of plaque in the arteries, which can lead to a heart attack or stroke. Men are more likely to develop heart disease than women, and the risk increases with age. To reduce your risk of heart disease, it’s important to maintain a healthy weight, exercise regularly, eat a balanced diet, and quit smoking.
2. Prostate Cancer
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men, after skin cancer. It’s estimated that 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. The risk increases with age, and men with a family history of prostate cancer are at a higher risk. Symptoms of prostate cancer include difficulty urinating, blood in the urine or semen, and pain in the back, hips, or pelvis. If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s important to see a doctor.
Depression is a common mental health problem that affects both men and women. However, men are less likely to seek help for depression than women. Symptoms of depression include feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and worthlessness, loss of interest in activities, and changes in appetite or sleep patterns. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to talk to a healthcare professional.
Diabetes is a condition in which the body is unable to regulate blood sugar levels. It can lead to serious health problems, including heart disease, kidney failure, and blindness. Men are more likely to develop diabetes than women, and the risk increases with age and obesity. Symptoms of diabetes include frequent urination, excessive thirst, and fatigue. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to see a doctor.
5. Testicular Cancer
Testicular cancer is a rare but serious cancer that affects the testicles. It’s most common in young men between the ages of 15 and 35. Symptoms of testicular cancer include a lump or swelling in the testicle, pain or discomfort in the testicle or scrotum, and a feeling of heaviness in the scrotum. If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s important to see a doctor.
