Caring for your prostate

Best Blogger Tips


Most men experience a prostate disorder-chronic prostatitis, benign prostatic hyperplasia and prostate cancer at some point in their lives. Alternative treatments and lifestyle strategies play a key role in prostate health for men young and old.

Exercise regulary. Vigorous exercise as well as gently forms, such as walking , yoga, and tai chi, all stimulate the prostate and help give it to the circulation and nourishment it needs. Other helpful habits include climbing stairs rather rather than taking elevators, and doing squats between long stretches of sitting.

Manage your stress level. Stress increases the production of prolactin, a hormone found to cause prostate inflammation in laboratory animals. If a connection is confirmed in humans, stress management will take on new importance for prostatitis sufferers.

Supplement your diet. Supplements knows to benefit prostate health include essential fatty acids, certain amino acids, the B vitamns, vitamns C and E, and especially zinc.

Have sex in moderation. Frequent ejaculations can actually weaken the gland and deplete its reserves of vital nutrients.

Eliminate offending foods. The most common offenders are high fat and high carbohydrates foods, citrus foods, spices, alcohol, and caffeine all of which irritate the genitourinary tract.
