Secret Help for the Prostate
June is Men’s Health Month — time to think about your prostate.
Are you getting up more at night to use the bathroom? Do you feel more urgency to urinate, do you not feel emptied after urinating or do you leak a little after having just gone to the bathroom?
Your prostate could be inflamed or enlarged. 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.
Millions of men suffer from prostate conditions that negatively affect their quality of life… including your sex life!
What can you do to have a healthier prostate?
Get to know your body. Have your prostate examined by your doctor annually. Lab work should be done before the exam if you have symptoms, such as fullness under the bladder, problems urinating or blood in your urine.
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. Acupuncture can be part of a preventive prostate care plan.
We can check you to see if your prostate is tired and needs a tailor-made program of nutritional support.
I recommend a line of natural supplements, available only through doctors, called Standard Process, that feature a number of products which are extremely effective for encouraging healthy prostate and testes function. Throughout the month of June 2019, I’m offering 20% off men’s health products Prost-X, Prostate PMG, Saw Palmetto, Zinc Liver Chelate and Symplex M.
Ask me about which one is best for you (or your loved one) when you are in the office.
