San Ramon, CA—What does a successful and healthy life look like? How can men maximize their health to live their best lives? More importantly, on a man's life journey what changes are needed to build a mind and body that will help him develop health, strength, and vigor? Dr. Judson Brandeis, in his straightforward and compelling guide to men's health, The Twenty-First Century Man, addresses these questions and so many more while providing a clear road map for maximizing men's health.
"What is the journey of life for a man? Each of us is born with individual gifts and walks a unique life path of hardship and opportunity. With mindfulness and determination, we all have the chance to become the hero of our own story," says Dr. Brandeis. "I created and wrote The 21st Century Man to help men feel great, look good, and have better physical intimacy on that journey"
With decades of experience as a urologist, surgeon, research, educator and men's health specialist, Dr. Brandeis is intimately familiar with the challenges men face as they age. Helping men meet these challenges and optimize their health inspires his commitment to clinical research, compassionate patient care, and education of other physicians. In The 21st Century Man: Advice from 50 Top Doctors and Men's Health Experts to Help You Feel Great, Look Good and Have Better Sex he expands the reach of his educational efforts beyond physicians and his patients, providing a guidebook for all men on how to live better, healthier lives.
"As I began training physicians in sexual medicine, I also began to consider a book that would help men over 40 understand the options available to them, to help them maintain the glow and vitality of youth," says Brandeis.
Dr. Brandeis has been recognized for his excellence as a urologist, holding the post of Chief of Urology at John Muir Hospital for eight years, and was chosen by SF Magazine as a Top Urologist in the SF Bay for seven years running. As a sexual medicine expert and educator leading courses all around the country, he approaches the subject of Male Sexual Wellness with enthusiasm and an ability to explain complicated topics in ways the listener can understand.
"It is up to us to take charge of our health," encourages Brandeis. "In the same way that preventative maintenance can extend the life of your car thousands of extra miles, managing your physical, mental, and emotional health can prevent a great many of the conditions and injuries that lead to poor performance and illness…The goal is to manage your health in a way that avoids health issues or catches them while they are still minor problems"
