Hormonal imbalances and sexual dysfunctions cause silent suffering in the lives of many individuals and couples, especially those over 40, robbing them of the quality of life they deserve in their middle age and golden years. According to The Massachusetts Male Aging Study, erectile dysfunction (ED), one of the most common sexual dysfunctions in men, affects approximately 40% of men at age 40 and nearly 70% at age 70*. Hormonal imbalances are even more common, affecting many men and women by the age of 50, which is when testosterone levels drop to a symptomatic level in men (known as andropause) and estrogen levels drop in women (known as menopause), causing many uncomfortable symptoms and health problems. Untreated, these conditions can lead to weight gain, depression, insomnia, loss of strength, chronic fatigue, mental fogginess, and low libido.
Balanced Medical Solutions was established to help individuals and couples with these problems. One of the founders, Adrian Newton, explains that “their ethos is to treat the whole individual with rigorous medical analysis, monitoring, health and fitness advice, and personalized treatment plans – to not only help their patients rebalance their hormones or treat their sexual dysfunction, but to help them achieve overall optimum health and a higher quality of life.” Since their soft opening in August 2018, they have already treated hundreds of patients and have earned a five star reputation across the internet. Many middle-aged couples also come in together, since it is fairly common for both partners of that age to be struggling with a hormonal or sexual wellness issue. Many of their patients express that they feel rejuvenated, more energetic, full of vitality, and able to finally lose weight and enjoy lovemaking again.
