Disparities in health between men and women are evident in premature mortality and less health care access among men. Integrative medicine represents the best of the new medicine that can be used to formulate ideal strategies to engage men in care and to reduce such disparities. Integrative medicine is patient-centered and includes all proven modalities aiming to prevent disease and optimize health by considering all factors that influence wellness including mind, body, spirit and community influences. The chapters in this book cover the complementary modalities useful in the medical care of men and focus on the primary health concerns of men from heart disease to low testosterone to prostate disease. However, overarching influences on the health of men such as inflammation, obesity, environmental toxicity and stress are covered in various chapters ranging from nutrition to supplements to mind-body health.
