Highlighting Men’s Health
Research shows that Australian men are less proactive than women about addressing any health concerns until they become chronic problems. They are also less likely to look for a Melbourne naturopath or a natural therapist in Melbourne until they are in serious pain or discomfort.
As a Naturopath in Melbourne, we work with men and inspirethem to take charge of their health, so they can truly feel their best and enjoy their life to the fullest.
At Vital Chi Wellness, we pride ourselves on taking a holistic natural medicine approach and encouraging men to “get to know their body” and to address any health issues as they arise, to enable them to achieve and maintain optimal health.
Addressing health issues
Men’s health issues can range from stress, digestive issues, addictions, and male infertility. The most common conditions we look after are;
- Mental Health such as stress, anxiety and depression
- Digestive Health such as IBS, chronic diarrhea/constipation, food sensativities
- Adrenal Fatigue - including sleep management, testosterone, chronic fatigue, andropause
- Weight management
Within mental health, we focus on mental wellbeing, healing addictions, using naturopathy for depression, and providing coping techniques with stress and anxiety.
Our digestive support consists of treating your gut and identifying any food allergies and intolerance, testing infections or underlying chronic conditions including coeliac disease.
In addition to mental wellbeing, physical wellbeing is also vital to living your best life and we focus on improving energy and vitality, male fertility treatment, cancer support, weight loss strategies, treating candida and providing migraine and pain relief. We also specialise in supporting chronic fatigue syndrome with kinesiology.

Focusing on health issues that men are facing
According to the Australian Governments Health Direct “the biggest health problems facing Australian men today are;
- Androgen deficiency (testosterone deficiency)
- Depression and anxiety
- Prostate and testicular cancers
- Erectile dysfunction
Androgens are male sex hormones. Testosterone, the most important male hormone, allows a boy to develop into a man and is responsible for ongoing reproductive and sexual function. Androgen, or testosterone deficiency occurs when the body is not able to make enough testosterone and although this is not life-threatening, it can affect a man’s quality of life. According to Healthy Male, it’s likely that androgen deficiency is under-diagnosed in many men, who are missing out on treatment.
1 in 8 men will experience depression and 1 in 5 men will experience anxiety at some stage in their lives, according to beyondblue. In 6 out of every 8 suicides, it is men that take their own lives. In fact, the number of men who die by suicide in Australia is nearly double the annual national road toll.
Infertility can be as a result of health issues with either a female or a male. 4 in 10 cases of infertility are attributable to a problem in the man; 4 in 10 cases are attributable to a problem in the woman.??? Male infertility is usually caused by poor sperm production or transport (motility or morphology). and often isn’t obvious.
Male infertility can also be a sign of another health condition, such as testosterone deficiency or testicular cancer, so it’s important for both the partners to be checked, if you’ve been trying to conceive without success.”
Prostate or testicular cancer is diagnosed mainly in men aged over 50 and occurs when cells in the prostate grow and divide abnormally, creating a tumour. Excluding some forms of skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer diagnosed in Australian men, with more than 19,000 diagnosed each year.
Being unable to get or maintain an erection is very common, up to 20% of men. Erectile dysfunction is not a disease, but a symptom of an underlying issue, which can be physical, psychological or a combination of both. Diabetes or hypertension (high blood pressure) can also be contributing factors. So, it’s important to seek support from our Melbourne Naturopaths if you’re experiencing erectile dysfunction.

I have been seeing Shiho for nearly 6 months. I found her really knowledgeable, caring, considerate and attention to detail. She is not just looking after the issue I have but also my “mindset” that she finds it connects to our body! She is like my soulmate who understands me a lot and gradually, she finds out the "cause" of my issue and tackle it with her treatment. I am really happy with her service and her positive energy.
