Navigating Men’s Health Through the Decades: A Hawaiian Approach



Written by Dr. Neel Chauhan, MBBS & Cloudwell Health Co-Founder

Aloha! Where the spirit of Hawaii infuses everything we do, including how we approach healthcare. Men’s health is a journey that evolves with each passing decade, and just like the diverse landscapes of our beautiful islands, it requires different care at every stage of life.

All Ages: The Foundation 

In Hawaii, we believe in the philosophy of ‘Malama i ke kino’ – taking care of your body. This means regular visits to your healthcare provider, much like how you regularly care for your ‘aina (land). These visits are crucial for keeping up with immunizations, preventative screenings, and catching health issues early.

In Your 20s: Building Healthy Habits

Sour 20s are like the dawn of a new day. It’s the perfect time to build healthy habits that will carry you through your life. Establish a relationship with a healthcare provider, discuss STI screenings, and consider the HPV vaccine. It’s also a time to embrace the Hawaiian lifestyle – enjoy outdoor activities, eat a balanced diet, and maintain a connection with the ‘aina and kai (sea).

In Your 30s: Staying on Track

As life gets busier in your 30s, it’s essential to keep up with the good practices you’ve established. Regular health check-ups, diabetes screening, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle are key. Remember, in Hawaii, health is not just physical; it’s also about living in balance with nature and your community.

In Your 40s: Mind and Heart

Your 40s might bring more responsibilities, but it’s also a time to focus on your mental and heart health. Stress management, regular exercise, and a balanced diet are more important than ever. At Cloudwell Health, we believe in a holistic approach to health, considering all aspects of your well-being.

In Your 50s and Beyond: Vigilance and Care

Entering your 50s is like entering the deeper waters of the ocean. It’s time for more frequent cancer screenings and paying closer attention to heart health and bone density. It’s also a period to reflect and ensure you’re living in harmony with your body and surroundings.

At Cloudwell Health, we’re here to guide you through every stage of your health journey, combining modern medicine with the wisdom of Hawaiian traditions. Let’s navigate these waters together, with care, aloha, and a deep respect for the journey of life.

Mahalo, Dr. Neel Chauhan
