While you are still young and healthy, creating habits for clean living, with a diet filled with antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, several servings of fresh clean greens and fruits in season, whole clean foods, adding daily exercise, and good personal hygiene, will help tremendously to eliminate your risk of suffering many prostate-related ailments, including prostate cancer, later in life.
If, however, you are past young and healthy, you still have the opportunity to make lifestyle and environmental changes to optimize your wellbeing and even to reverse prostatitis (inflammation), prostatic hyperplasia (enlargement), and even prostate cancer.
For men, over the age of twenty, and living in America, taking care of your prostate gland, should be an area of concern and for the women who care about them.
It has been proven that eating a plant based diet, low in animal products, high in omega-3 fatty acids from fatty fish like salmon, getting exercise daily, preferably some of which is done in the sun, drinking lots of clean water, and limiting alcoholic drinks can reduce health risks. Limiting one’s caffeine intake, and eliminating artificial colors, chemicals and preservatives from foods, and finding that balance of correct supplements, can help to reverse prostate problems and prostate cancer.
One recent study at the Mayo clinic found that eating four or more servings of fresh or processed tomatoes each day helps in reducing cancer risk. Tomatoes, more than other fruits, are rich in lycopene, an antioxidant that helps cleanse and strengthen one’s body.
Also, an ongoing study of natural vitamin E consistently shows its value in fighting prostate problems.
Lifestyle changes help control the symptoms of enlarged prostate and also helps in preventing the worsening of symptoms.
Consider limiting liquids late in the evening, especially caffeine and alcohol to avoid late night trips to the bathroom.
Talk with your doctor, if you take diuretics, about taking it early in the day, and less at night.
Certain drugs, such as antihistamines may adversely affect the urethra, causing difficulty in controlling urine flow.
Don’t wait, go when you feel the urge to go. If urinating is a problem, know where the rest rooms are in places you visit.
Can you connect the dots between meat eating and prostate cancer? Arecent Cohort Study results show:
“Higher consumption of any ground beef or processed meats was positively linked with aggressive prostate cancer, with ground beef showing the strongest association.”
“The main driver of this link was intake of grilled or barbecued meat, with more well-done meat tied to a higher risk of aggressive prostate cancer.”
“Men who ate high levels of well or very well cooked ground beef had twice the odds of developing aggressive prostate cancer compared to men who ate none.”
All meat eating, above two servings per week, is linked to colon cancer in women and men.
This is the best analogy I’ve ever heard for doing it backwards: “If you fail to embrace a proper diet and lifestyle, looking for answers in supplements alone, it is like “putting a new roof on a house that is falling apart from a broken foundation. Poor lifestyle habits are an invitation to illness.”
