June is Men’s Health Month… so can we talk?
Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:
June is Men’s Health Month, and it’s time for men to learn more about their bodies and how to keep them healthy for life!
Let’s start off the month by talking about….the prostate gland.
The prostate gland is about the size of a walnut. It’s located just below the bladder and it surrounds the urethra, a tube that carries urine and semen out of the body. As part of the male reproductive system, the prostate gland’s main purpose is to secrete a slightly alkaline fluid that forms part of the seminal fluid, a fluid that carries sperm.
According to the nonprofit Men’s Health Network, more than 30 million men suffer from prostate conditions that negatively affect their quality of life.
What can you do to have a healthy prostate?
Eating healthy is a great start. Foods that nourish the prostate include wild salmon, walnuts, sesame seeds, almonds, pumpkin seeds, avocados, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, bell peppers, cabbage, onions and garlic. Be sure to eat five servings of vegetables a day.
Maintaining a healthy weight and enjoying moderate exercise is good for the prostate and your overall health.
Get to know your body. Do you know what a baseline is? A baseline is what is normal for you. When you establish a baseline, you have something to compare changes to, and it’s easier to share that information with a doctor to determine if you are having an issue. Self-awareness can go a long way when it comes to health maintenance.
Natural products for men only during the month of June, Men’s Health Month … I recommend a line of natural supplements, available only through doctors, called Standard Process that features a number of products which are extremely effective for encouraging healthy prostate and testes function.
Throughout the month of June 2016, I’m offering men’s health products Prost-X, Prostate PMG and Symplex M all for 20% off!
Ask me about which one is best for you (or your loved one) when you are in the office.
Until next time…
Yours in health,
