Self-Care and Proactive Men’s Health Options in Wilmington

Patrick Giguere

As times change, men are rethinking the ideas that healthy living and self-care are signs of weakness and even unmanliness,” says Patrick Giguere, Lac, of Healing Leaves Holistic Center, in Wilmington. “Younger men are ahead of the game as they are more flexible and adaptable. Men’s attitudes toward self-care are definitely changing for the better.”

The practice offers many services and products that are extremely helpful for addressing and preventing health issues that men typically encounter including stress, high blood pressure and prostate inflammation. In addition to acupuncture and Oriental medicine, nutritional therapy, hypnotherapy, massage therapy and a wide variety of natural supplements are also available.

“We have recently added an herbal supplement called Zyflamend Prostate, by New Chapter. I have been taking it, buying it for family members and recommending it to patients for several years now and definitely recommend this to men as part of your overall health regime,” adds Giguere. Zyflamend is an herbal blend dietary supplement of whole-food antioxidants and prostate- supportive whole herbs that contributes toward an overall healthy inflammation response and supports cardiovascular and joint function, according to the Sloan Kettering Institute.
