Rozalyn Dooley, Owner, Spartan Men’s Health & Testosterone
How do you define a healthy lifestyle?
A healthy lifestyle is a consistent combination of regular physical activity, a balanced diet and sufficient sleep to promote overall well-being. Reducing stress can further contribute to hormonal balance and overall health.
How did you come to practice in your career field?
My faith led me to nursing and working in the medical, surgical, intensive and emergency care for the past decade. I noticed men struggling the most to stay healthy throughout their lifespan. This led to my new endeavor of keeping men healthy, thriving, out of the hospital, and off of potentially harmful medications as a family nurse practitioner at my men’s health clinic.
What type of exercise (weights, cardio, yoga, Pilates, etc.) do you prefer; why?
Strength training is my favorite due to profound longevity benefits, primarily through enhancing muscle mass. As we age, maintaining muscle becomes crucial for health. Addressing testosterone deficiency can further support muscle growth and development with strength training, making it an effective tool for promoting a healthier and more resilient body.
How do you define self-care; what is your go to way of practicing it?
Self-care is a comprehensive approach to fostering overall well-being. As a health care provider, my role of practicing self-care involves providing personalized testosterone therapy, thyroid optimization, growth hormone optimization, sexual wellness and medical weight loss services, tailored to each individual’s unique needs.
Inspired by the strength and discipline of ancient Spartans, my holistic approach empowers men to achieve peak vitality and lead healthier, more fulfilling lives.
What are your biggest health, wellness tips?
Do not suffer needlessly. Have your labs checked including your hormone levels. Sometimes symptoms of low energy, decreased motivation, decrease in muscle mass, weight gain, mood changes, sexual dysfunction and low sex drive can be due to hormonal abnormalities like low testosterone or thyroid issues.
