Hormonal Health for men in Singapore:
Male mental and physical health is closely tied to testosterone levels, and Dr. Kamat’s deep knowledge of the body’s hormones has helped hundreds of men across Singapore achieve better health and lifestyles.
Before proceeding, it is worth noting that a Naturopathic Doctor* can help patients optimize all hormone levels, not just testosterone. For example, Dr. Kamat often helps patients struggling with anxiety address their serotonin or cortisol levels. But most commonly, men seek medical help to address testosterone deficiencies. Testosterone can impact mood, energy, muscle mass, sexual function, and much more.
After examining a patient’s lifestyle, stress levels, family history, and more, Dr. Kamat may suggest lab work . These may include saliva labs or bloodwork – after which treatment strategies with the patient.
She primarily uses evidence based natural, non-invasive treatment modalities to optimize hormone health. Nutrition is a critical component of this. A balanced diet, rich in lean proteins, healthy fats, and fresh fruits and vegetables, can support overall hormonal balance. For instance, a 2017 study published in Translational Andrology and Urology found that the Mediterranean diet, characterized by its high content of mono and polyunsaturated fats, could improve testosterone levels. Obesity has also been associated with lower testosterone levels, so weight management may come into play.
Specific exercise strategies can balance hormones production, and stress management may also be key; yoga, deep breathing and other regimens may help. A qualified Naturopathic doctor* helps patients by prescribing well researched herbal remedies and natural supplements that will help balance the hormonal axis depending on your case along side life style recommendations.If you have any questions about how she can help you optimize your health, please get in touch.
