The Importance of Knowing Where You Have Been, Where You Are and Where You Are Going…

I had been struggling with a decline in my energy levels, anxiety, libido and fat gain for many years. During this period, I  had looked at every part of my life to try and improve my health, from the gym to personal development. I got more and more into fitness, thinking I wasn’t doing enough, I did slim down but it was a massive struggle to maintain a normal life, work, marriage, kids and going to the gym  There was little reward.  I really struggled with why this was the case, I was eating healthy, had given up drinking, I meditated, practised yoga, but the symptoms still remained and got worse over time. I would suffer from tension-type headaches due to anxiety and stress.  All of it was a cycle of ill-effects causing many symptoms.

I went through the NHS, tried antidepressants, beta blockers but none of it touched the symptoms. I had bloods done by my then doctor, who said my hormone levels were too low, so sent me to a Urologist. He dismissed me straight away and said it was all in my head.  My levels were at the bottom of the scale, others were way over, and that was fine for him.  Not for me though, so I went to the The Men’s Health Clinic 7 months ago and became a patient of Dr Stevens.  It has been the best thing I have ever done for myself.  I’m no longer suffer from the symptoms of low testosterone, I feel better than I have ever in my life.  My energy levels are back to normal, I can go to the gym and recover in time, I can do DIY all weekend and not suffer in the week. My mental well-being has improved greatly, my confidence, my outlook on life and one of the best things, my anxiety has gone. Having suffered anxiety for 25 years this is a relief I can’t describe.

Dr Stevens and Lydia provide a fantastic, professional service.  Having an experienced doctor and team look after you is priceless, I could not be happier with the decision to be a patient of The Men’s Health Clinic.
