From the Desk of Isabella Truong, Advisory Pharmacist
November is host to Movember. It’s a great initiative and despite an influx of moustaches, it is a positive and fun way to open the discussion about Men’s Health, while also raising much needed funds to support research in this area.
As a Pharmacist for Blackmores Institute’s Advisory service I receive a number of queries each year about a range of men’s health issues - the main topics being:
- Prostate health
With Movember in mind, I’ve pulled together some things to consider when advising your male patients on both prostate, and mental health. The advice we offer is holistic and naturopathic in its approach, with research and evidence to support the information provided. For more serious, and specific health conditions we refer people on to a healthcare professional in private practice to discuss further.
