Health for Him


Did you know that 60% of men do not see a doctor regularly? While women pride themselves on self-care, naturally most men avoid anything that may make them seem weak. What men don’t know is that many of their issues are normal, and can have pre and post treatments to help stop and even prevent their ailments. Welcome hims, a new kind of wellness brand all about preventative care. hims offers their expertise in hair loss, erectile dysfunction, and skin care.


Hair Loss- What’s the cause? While many men believe their diet, high stress and even unlucky genetics factors play a role in the thinning and loss of hair, more times than not it is actually caused by dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is a male steroid hormone produced as a byproduct of testosterone. It binds to the receptors in your hair follicles, in turn causing the hair follicles to shrink, weaken and even die. So how do you prevent DHT from killing off your hair follicles? You block it at the source. Check out the line of products hims has to offer to help stop men hair loss.



Testosterone is a key player in what makes a man think he is a man. So a lack of testosterone can lead to many of men’s biggest concerns such as hair loss, extreme fatigue, loss of muscle mass, increased body fat, decreased bone mass, change in mood, difficulty concentrating and erectile dysfunction. Many of these topics men simply don’t feel comfortable addressing with their doctor, especially erectile dysfunction (ED). However, low testosterone is not the only factor that can lead to ED. There are plenty of other causes that can be helped or adjusted without even seeing a doctor, including your diet, weight, body fat, blood pressure, stress, age and general lifestyle. Along with adjusting these aspects of your lifestyle, talking to a doctor is still important. Hims allows you to easily get in touch with a doctor right at your fingertips. Their in-house doctors can listen/read your symptoms and help prescribe you the best remedies without you ever having to leave your home.



While many believe women can be vain and all about self-image, secretly men are too. According to the NDP in 2015, 80% of men ages 18+ used grooming products, however, only 22% are skin care users. The reality is men are just as susceptible to the same skincare problems as women, such as acne, oily or dry skin, and aging. So why are women the only ones taking preventative measures? Let the doctors and hims do the leg for work you. After describing your symptoms to one of the in-house doctors, they will be able to suggest a regimen to help with your specific issues.
