Breaking the Stigma Around Sexual Health and Aging Will Lead to Better Care and Positive Outcome for Women and Men in Their 40s 50s and 60s+. By Appointing Wellness Expert, Tammy-Lynn McNabb as CEO, the Company Will See Exponential Growth.
VANCOUVER, BC, November 14, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Kama Health is pleased to announce that it has entered into a letter of intent with Tammy-Lynn McNabb, RHP of Health Wellness & Lifestyle T.V., and women’s wellness company MenoFemme. “MenoFemme represents a perfect match to Kama’s existing business model, which provides products and services to Canadian men experiencing erectile dysfunction and health related challenges due to aging. MenoFemme is a complimentary company that provides options to women during their perimenopause and menopause journey. “The combination of the two entities will position us as North America’s leading sexual wellness organization strictly focusing on sexual health for women and men 40+,” says Dr. Donna Trinidad Breva, O.D. – Director at Kama Health.
Sexual health and discussions around sex for men and women 40+ has always been a bit of a taboo topic, especially when it incorporates issues many may have at this age, including erectile dysfunction and complications due to menopause. “I’ve been involved in media for the last ten years on my show, Health Wellness & Lifestyle T.V., and I can tell you that talking about a malfunctioning penis or a dry vagina isn’t a topic many feel comfortable engaging in. My job at Kama Health will be to break the stigma so that women and men not only feel comfortable about having conversations with their doctors for treatment but also with their partners who are often in the dark with what they are going through,” says Tammy-Lynn McNabb, RHP – CEO, Kama Health. “Somehow, individuals feel as though they are broken, and the shame translates into a sexless relationship for many. My focus and my team’s goal is to give individuals the tools and information they need to understand their aging bodies, embrace the change and have access to resources to help them get back to feeling themselves again. Equally as important is making prescription options affordable for all,” she adds.
When talking about menopause, Tammy-Lynn is very open to having a candid conversation. “Oh, menopause has been a 10-year journey for me, starting with perimenopause and raging hormones. I felt awful and didn’t understand what menopause was and that I could even be going through it. My doctors did their best to help me along the way, but menopause sometimes requires a lot of trial-and-error treatments and advocating for yourself. It can be hard on a relationship when sex is uncomfortable as your body slowly decreases the production of estrogen. Fluctuating hormones have an emotional, physical and mental impact on many women,” adds McNabb.
Menopause, andropause, erectile dysfunction, hormone imbalance, vaginal atrophy, low sex drive and complications in relationships are more than physical fallouts for men and women as they age. Hormone changes, without being checked, can lead to severe depression for many. For men, erectile dysfunction could be an early sign of underlying heart disease or diabetes. For women, unchecked hormones can lead to osteoporosis and vaginal atrophy. “No one likes to get older, but aging sexuality is more than vanity. For many people who lead an active sexual lifestyle, this change is not only confusing but often devastating,” says Tammy-Lynn.
Our healthcare system is failing mature women and men. Lack of proper primary care leaves patients feeling frequently unheard, dismissed, and overlooked. Men and women 40+ are often left to navigate complex challenges associated with andropause and menopause on their own. McNabb adds, “We hope to eliminate the red tape and get answers and options for our patients faster and at a more affordable price point. We should be celebrating our age! Parenting is often behind us and being 50 is like being 30 again. We should be enjoying our bodies and the feeling of being sexually liberated. Kama Health wants to be the company that gives you back the ability to enjoy your body again without the challenges aging can bring!”
