Plant power for men
Throughout the UK, fathers, partners, brothers and friends face a health crisis that isn’t being talked about – men are dying too young.
According to Men’s Health Forum, 19% of men in England, Wales and Northern Ireland die before they retire, with this percentage increasing to 22% in Scotland.
On top of that, statistics show that on average, men die between four and six years earlier than women.
Society encourages men to be tough in the face of hardship and they become statistically much less inclined than women to actively seek their own wellness, leaving men stuck in unhealthy patterns of coping.
Statistics collected by Men’s Health Forum show that men are less likely to visit their doctor or a pharmacist than women and they are less likely than women to acknowledge illness or seek help.
The good news is that you don’t need to wait for a health scare to start taking care of yourself. Herbalism is built on the foundation of education and self-empowerment, and men have used herbs since the dawn of time.
