There are so many more intricacies to optimum male health than meet the eye, as functional health professionals have noted on regular occasions. In terms of commonly observed symptoms, an overall lowered level of energy, as well as increases in insomnia (esp. if your a new daddy, like my hubby) and physical fatigue, are the most prevalent among men of all ages.

As far as general medicine, men are far less likely than women to visit a doctor of any kind to treat their ailments and this makes it even more beneficial for them to become literal in functional health care.

Where Does Functional Health Come In?

It’s important that men maintain their hormone health, as these imbalances can serve as the precursor to serious health conditions such as cancer and other damaging diseases. Functional medicine for men makes sure that testosterone and progesterone (men’s sex hormones) are being produced at the optimum rate which when not attended to could contribute to the rise of more complicated issues later on.
Functional health for men will not just treat potential hormonal imbalance, but it will find the underlying cause of the issue to solve it AND prevent it in the future.

Men would benefit most from becoming more aware of their own physical and mental imbalances in order to treat themselves sufficiently without the need for doctor intervention. The key to this is being open and honest about areas of health which are not at their optimum and becoming literate in functional health care.

Our hope is to enable all men to become more ‘literate’ and confident in functional health, so as to maximize their chances of preventing the onset or reversing the effects of health complaints.

One way to ensure you’re healthy as can be is paying attention to the food you eat. Food has the ability to boost immune health and overall functionality of physical health. Trying incorporating as many of these as you can into your diet and see what differences you observe:

  • Citrus. Citrus fruits
  • Bell peppers
  • Broccoli
  • Garlic
  • Ginger.
  • Spinach
  • Yogurt

Eat up!

Digging Deeper

Cont’d from blog post (read here for introduction)

Let’s dig right into it ya’ll…

My secret weapon of choice for combating soreness is non other than doTERRA’s Deep Blue Rub!

doTERRA’s deep blue won’t leave you smelling like a bottle of menthol, which, for some might be the best smell ever, but for others, not so much. Personally, I don’t think you’re going to get many compliments smelling like an old man lathered in Icy Hot. Fortunately, this baby has some amazing ingredients to help it not smell like a gym. Besides the smell, let’s get into the needy greedy that makes this rub super “awesome”!

doTERRA® Deep Blue Rub is a topical cream formulated with Deep Blue Soothing Blend of CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils, natural plant extracts, and additional helpful ingredients that provides a comforting sensation of cooling and warmth to problem areas.

The oil mixtures in this rub have the neatest way of making your muscle feel cool and warm all at the same time! It feels like a nice, refreshing, jump in the ocean on a hot summer’s day! This is definitely with me EVERYWHERE I go!

Ever since my car accident I have used this rub like it’s going outta style! Since I am currently nursing my son, my doctor could not give me any prescription pain killers because they aren’t safe to use while nursing. My doctor basically said, “Good Luck, you can take ibuprofen, but that’s about it.” My response of course was, “Oh, no, that’s okay, I know EXACTLY what I can use!” So, naturally, I pulled out my doTERRA Deep Blue Rub and asked if it was okay for me to use instead… He looked over the ingredients, and gave me the go ahead! Then he proceeded to say that if I ever felt like the pain was just way too much that I could try a pain killer that was less harmful. I asked him what the side effects were and OMG, have ya’ll read ALL the side effects there are to taking muscle relaxers and pain killers? If you haven’t here are just a FEW:

  • fast, pounding, or uneven heartbeats;
  • chest pain or heavy feeling, pain spreading to the arm or shoulder, nausea, sweating, general ill feeling;
  • sudden numbness or weakness, especially on one side of the body;
  • sudden headache, confusion, problems with vision, speech, or balance;
  • feeling light-headed, fainting;
  • confusion, weakness, lack of coordination;
  • nausea, stomach pain, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes);
  • seizure (convulsions)
  • Possible Sedation in infants after nursing

I looked at him wide eyed and said, “No, thanks. I’ll just add some Frankincense if it gets too bad!”

(*** for all you nursing mommies, please note that Deep Blue does have peppermint oil. Peppermint oil has been shown to reduce milk supply in some women. Be sure to keep an eye on your supply if you have issues, and always run it by your doctor first!***)

So why does it work better than the rest out there?

In a recent study, doTERRA researchers investigated the effect of Deep Blue essential oil blend on human skin cells using the BioMAP® dermal fibroblast system.1,2,3 By adding certain factors to cultured skin cells, the researchers induced a cellular response that was designed to imitate a cellular inflammation response in a living person.2,3 Some of the pre-inflamed skin cells were exposed to Deep Blue essential oil blend while others were left alone.

After exposure to the blend, the cells were collected and burst open. RNA was extracted from a solution containing the cellular contents and sent for RNA microarray analysis. The microarray results indicated that signaling pathways related to inflammation, immunomodulation, and wound healing were affected in cells exposed to Deep Blue essential oil blend.1

The major active components of Deep Blue including methyl salicylate, menthol, eucalyptol, and camphor, are organic molecules that possess beneficial properties and are widely used in various health care products.1 These facts taken together with the experimental results help explain why Deep Blue is soothing after strenuous exercise.
