Prostate Disease

A healthy prostate can help establish virility, proper urine flow, and optimum sexual function.


As part of man’s sex organs, the prostate is a walnut shaped gland that surrounds the urethra, which adds fluid to semen and acts as a muscle. Depending on the age and circumstances involved, the prostate may become inflamed and enlarged. However, a healthy prostate can help establish virility, proper urine flow, and optimum sexual function.

Types of Prostate Problems

Prostatitis – Sometimes caused by bacteria, prostatitis causes inflammation of the prostate, which causes painful, burning, and frequent urination. Even though symptoms vary from person-to-person, a fever and genital pain are oftentimes accompanied by a general sense of malaise.

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) – Commonly associated with advanced aging, BPH puts abnormal pressure on the urethra, which is a tube that runs from the bladder through the prostate to the end of the penis. Once enlarged, the prostate blocks the flow of urine, causing extreme discomfort, weakened flow, and over-straining.

Prostate disease  Diet & Lifestyle Changes

  1. Eat organic, unrefined, low sugar foods. Normalizing insulin levels is an important step in maintaining a healthy prostate.
  2. Get lots of rest and establish healthy sleeping patterns.
  3. Avoid smoking, alcohol, and other illegal drug use.
  4. If you are not getting enough vitamin D, make sure you get your levels assessed. Consider natural sunlight, an oral vitamin D supplement, or a safe tanning bed solution.
  5. In order to get the right fatty acid balance, make sure you are getting enough healthy fats in your diet, such as organic, grass-fed meats, cheeses, fish, and butter. Avoid highly oxidized oils such as trans-fats, soy, canola, and corn oils, which lead to a build-up of inflammation, cellular disruption, and unwanted cardiac complications.
  6. When choosing foods to eat, make sure to include foods that contain lots of lycopene and carotenoids, which are two important nutrients that support prostate health. Lycopene, which is a naturally-occurring antioxidant found in fruits and vegetables, helps counter free radical damage.
  7. Practice stress reduction techniques. According to new data, research has shown a correlation between stress and prostate function.
  8. Since your lymphatic system is responsible for ridding the body of all toxic buildup, it is important to support it by regularly exercising, drinking adequate amounts of clean, fresh water, and eating hormone-free foods.
  9. Whenever possible, make time for sex. Besides being a great stress buster, sex can promote healthy prostate function, increase circulation, and improve libido.
