A medical lifeline for the aging male
Craig L. Bowron, M.D.
Understand your health and live your best life with this authoritative, humorous head-to-toe manual.
In this fun-to-read handbook on men’s health, Dr. Bowron uses his years of education and professional experience to help you get through this pilgrimage, this magical journey of aging-while-male, not unscathed but with a sense of control and dignity. You can get more of both of those if you understand how your body works, what happens when it doesn’t, and how to fix it.
Learning about your health doesn’t have to read like a colonoscopy (informative, yes, but difficult to sit through without sedation). Staying healthy is serious business, but it doesn’t have to be boring. Informative but entertaining, this must-read, head-to-toe guide provides actionable advice, so you can stop worrying about your health, do something about it, and get on with your life. With chapters like “Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs,” “Andropause,” “Sexercise,” and “Move It or Lose It,” you’ll learn how to eat right, address your risks for heart disease, exercise effectively, manage your weight, reduce stress, deal with back pain, avoid the three cancers that men commonly develop, know if your T levels are right, navigate challenges in the bedroom, deal with thinning hair, and handle getting older–not unscathed, but with a sense of control and dignity. It’s for men of every ethnicity, BMI, hair pattern, shoe size, IPA preference and sports predilection (including none). Think of it as the ultimate checklist for your next checkup. Grab yourself a beverage and a flimsy paper gown, and let’s do this!
