What is it about?
This month of June marks Men’s Health Month. It is dedicated to enhancing awareness for men’s health and wellness. This is made possible through several educational campaigns, health fairs and screenings done all throughout the country.
Men’s Health Month gives health care providers, all sorts of media, and individuals an opportunity to motivate men and boys to seek regular health check and early treatment for disease and injury.
What does Men’s Health Month have to do with you?
A lot! Since you have family and friends who are men, men’s health issues also affect the world you live in. Your father, brother, son and all men close to you may face health issues that are often taken for granted such as prostate, testicular, skin and colon cancers, hypertension, obesity and heart disease. This month is dedicated to heighten their awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys.
Tips for men’s health:
- Eat healthy.
The simplest thing men can do is adding at least one fruit and vegetable every meal and making sure to eat a variety of food in order to get all the vitamins and minerals needed by the body.
- Stay active.
Physical health is wealth. Take time to do even simple exercises such as walking, jogging and swimming. Pick a physical activity that you enjoy and keeps you energized and motivated.
- Believe that prevention is better than cure.
Schedule regular checkup routines with your physician. Regular screenings play a big role too in making sure your body is keeping up. Regular screenings may include blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose, prostate health (PSA tests) and more.
Make sure you have access to reliable healthcare providers.
