The aim of this chapter is to review nutrition, hormones, natural substances, and integrative aspects to men’s health specific to the geriatric population. This segment of the population is growing, and they are more active and want to remain so for as long as possible. Older men therefore are entitled to and demand healthy options and lifestyle education and interventions to meet their future goals. This chapter covers exercise, nutrition, and food recommendation for the healthy aging male. Topics include prostate health, sexuality, erectile dysfunction, and hormone deficiencies, specifically testosterone and DHEA. Recommendations are provided on bone health, sleep, balance, and mind–body intervention. A global approach to healthy aging is suggested when providing care for aging men.
