Staying Connected Throughout Your Journey

Men thrive when they follow a basic health roadmap and keep a solid connection to all aspects of living. Good physical health leads to sound emotional wellbeing, which leads to better relationships, more contentment and a more fulfilling life. At GeniusRx, we help guide you along the journey and empower you to live your best and healthiest life.

Boundless Youth

age 18-30

For most men, testosterone hits its peak at around age 17 and remains high for the next two to three decades. Our bodies begin to fill out and gain muscle mass. Our libido is at its highest. It’s an exciting time, but it can prompt feelings of invincibility, which can lead to risky behaviors as well as pent-up emotions. Taking responsibility for our mental health is critical at this stage.

Leaving the Nest

Embarking on one’s own is a milestone. But sometimes the beginning of this journey has its bumps. For some, newfound independence can lead to excessive alcohol and drug use. For others, emotional issues like depression and anxiety emerge. Developing good habits early on like proper sleep, diet, exercise, and doctor checkups will help provide stability, and hopefully continue throughout life.

Let’s Talk About Sex

More independence can sometimes mean more sexual relationships. Healthy, consensual sex is a valuable part of our psychological wellbeing, providing a sense of closeness and connection for many. But it has its risks, particularly with unsafe or casual sex. Sexually transmitted diseases like chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis are highest in our 20s, and in recent years, occurrences of all three have risen. Fortunately these STDs can be treated with topical or oral antibiotics, but the best measure is always safe sex and full transparency with your partner.

Staying Young

age 30-50

Middle age brings a wonderful new chapter to life. Men begin to settle down with partners, start families, and thrive in careers. It’s a rewarding and productive time, but it can be stressful and time-consuming. Prioritizing physical and emotional health during this time is essential to looking and feeling great, and it better equips you to handle all of life’s adventures.

Hair Loss

While some men are blessed with a full head of hair throughout their lives, nearly 50% experience some degree of male-patterned baldness, starting as early as their 20s. Some embrace “bald is beautiful”, and others do what they can to retain those youthful locks. Hair loss treatment has come a long way in recent years, with many over-the-counter solutions, as well as prescription or other therapies. The good news is twofold: bald has become chic, and curing it is becoming more and more of a reality.

Keep Up the Drive

Men can have a vibrant and fulfilling sex life at any age. Erectile dysfunction is common as testosterone begins to decline, with as many as 40% of men affected after the age of 40. The causes can be physical and/or emotional, but treatment is available in medications, talk therapy, or a change of diet and exercise. You can also take steps to prevent Low Testosterone through a high-protein diet and engaging in more strenuous exercise like weight-lifting

Follow Your Gut

Everyone gets a little heartburn or indigestion sometimes, especially when our diet strays off the beaten path and we indulge in spicier or acidic foods, or eat at more irregular intervals. But when heartburn becomes more frequent or more painful it could be a symptom of something more serious, like acid reflux or GERD. For more common cases, over-the-counter antacids are effective, but as symptoms worsen a prescription might be necessary.

Your Time

age 50-65

Your 50s and 60s is a time to get back to your roots. For many men this age, children are grown, work life is more relaxed, and free time opens up for more fun and adventure. Making the most of this time means staying fit, being aware of potential health hurdles, and identifying symptoms early.

A Healthy Heart for a Healthier Life

Your heart is the center of your life, and taking care of it is important. Heart disease accounts for 25% of all male deaths every year, with more than half occurring without symptoms. The major causes of heart disease are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and smoking. Other factors include obesity, poor diet, physical inactivity, and excessive alcohol intake.

Talk to your doctor about your risk of heart disease. With proper diet and exercise, stress management, and many available medications to choose from (even as simple as an aspirin a day), you can keep your heart in good shape for life.

Know Your Prostate

Approximately half of all men will experience an enlarged prostate at some point over 50. 1 in 8 will get prostate cancer. While there is no proven method of prevention, doctors recommend a healthy diet of fruits, vegetables, and fiber, coupled with regular exercise.

The prognosis is promising, though. An enlarged prostate can be treated with medications such as alpha blockers, and the survival rate for prostate cancer is high. Again, your chances for success increase with awareness of the symptoms along with regular doctor visits and screenings.

Cancer Screenings

The success rate for cancer is high when it’s detected early. Men should talk to their doctors about their risk of prostate, testicular, colorectal, skin, and lung cancer. Exams and screenings are recommended starting at around 50, earlier if there’s a family history.

Enjoying the Good Years

age 65+

Thanks to modern medicine and better personal care, aging into our 60s and 70s isn’t the “slow down” period it was years ago. As long as we do what we can to stay fit, these years should be productive, fulfilling, and focused on the things you love doing. But we need to know our limits, and what else we might expect throughout these years.

Staying Sharp

After years of hard work, raising families, and dealing with the daily grind, this time of life is about you. And to get the most out of it, you need to keep your brain flexing. Mental stimuli such as reading, puzzles, hobbies, social contact with friends and family, and maintaining a positive outlook will help keep your mind fit, lowering the chance of neurological issues such as dementia or depression.

Stay Strong, Go Long

The secret to a long and healthy life is really no secret at all. Every adage from childhood is true. “You are what you eat”. “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. “Don’t bottle up your feelings”. All the building blocks of physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing are the best advice for good living, whether we’re 25 or 75. Developing these habits early on gives you an advantage, but it’s never too late to start a well-balanced program of self care.

Mild exercise such as long walks or light jogs helps strengthen bones and maintain good cardiovascular fitness, lowering the risk of osteoporosis or pulmonary disease. Moderate use of alcohol will benefit the liver, while a good diet affects our entire body, from our brain capacity to our general mood.

And there are many prescription and over-the-counter medications that complement these holistic methods, helping treat cholesterol, blood pressure, incontinence, and other common issues that arise in our golden years.
