Prostate - How To Keep A Healthy Prostate
Most men over the age of 50 are liable, according to
statistics, to get prostate cancer. For American men, about
300,000 new cases are diagnosed each year, and some 35,000 men
die of this disease annually. The numbers are increasing as
well. This article is all about simple ways of keeping your
What is the problem?
The prostate is a chestnut-shaped gland and organ that sits right below the bladder and is wrapped around the urethra. Other than closing the urethra during erection, the prostate has nothing to do with a man’s urinary system.

These preparations effectively prevent inflammation of prostate in men.
The prostate is needed for ejaculation, as the ejaculate
passes through the same urethra as the urine does. The
gland’s basic job is to add special fluid to the
before it exits the
penis during ejaculation.
This is why the prostate sits below the bladder, and also why prostate problems interfere with a man’s ability to urinate and to have sex.
The prostate is affected three ways:
What are the problem’s symptoms?
For infection (called prostitis) there is a great deal of pain, fever, and urinary problems. There are medicines and conventional therapies, however following the dietary rules below are very beneficial for prostitis.
Enlargement (known as BPH or benign prostatic hypertrophy) is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate. The symptoms are hesitancy in urinating, dribbling of urine before and after urinating, frequent urination, straining to start the stream, urgency of urination, and getting up several times at night to urinate.
Cancer of the prostate symptoms are quite the same as BPH and many men are quite unaware they have cancer of the prostate, as there are often no symptoms at all. A PSA test done every 6 months is now a necessity for every man over 45.
What can be done about it?
Actually a lot. Diet and stress appear to be the main culprits. Here is a list of “do eat” and “do not eat” that is quite time tested.
Eat the following
lots of fresh vegetables and fruits, legumes (peas, beans, and lentils). fresh fish. And especially fish from cold ocean waters (such as salmon, sardines, mackerel, and cod) have large amounts of essential fatty acids. whole grain in moderation, rather than refined (white) breads, pasta, crackers, rice, and other grains.
Dont eat the following
fatty meats, fatty meats, excess of salts, hydrogenated oils, such as those found in margarine, donuts, cookies, cakes, other desserts, potato chips, and other deep-fried foods. canned, packaged, or otherwise processed foods, sodas, alcohol, black teas (which includes most iced teas), or coffee, and dairy foods, especially if they have been pastuarised.
Are there Special Foods that Can Cure the Cancer?
Perhaps; and this is still a subject open to debate, but chilli peppers have been shown to inhibit the cancerous cells of the prostate. There was a study done recently at UCLA in California which indicate as much.
Also there are several herbs and food additives known for their beneficial action on the prostate. They are:
- Saw palmetto: This herb is now well-known to shrink enlarged prostate and to lower PSA..
- Green tea: The catechins found in green tea are the likely “medicines” for the prostate, although it is not known exactly how they prevent or combat existing prostate cancer. The usual dose is no less than 6 cups per day.
- Pygeum: Pygenum has been used to treat diseases of the prostate and urinary tract for many years.
- Nettle: The Nettle is rich in vitamin C, iron, and other proven nutrients that bolster the prostate.
- Kelp: This is seaweed, and plentiful in iodine and contains minerals that help to prevent and treat prostate cancer. Asian men, with high doses of kelp in their diet (than American men) have a much lower incidence of any prostate problem.
If you follow the above you will have and keep a healthy prostate.
