Maintaining Prostate Health

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of death in men over fifty in the United States, because the cancer is often slow-growing and not easy to detect often until it’s too late to really start administering effective treatment. Although chemotherapy, radiotherapy and other methods are effective means of treating prostate cancer, it’s best to prevent the need for them altogether by maintaining prostate health and making regularly scheduled visits to get the prostate gland checked. Prostate health can be kept in good condition by following a few simple steps.

The prostate gland is important for proper functioning of the male reproductive and urinary tracts. It acts as the gland that creates semen and helps to make it into a liquid form – more suitable for the spermatozoa to travel unhindered through the cervical canal and impregnate the woman.

Prostate health can be maintained in one method via frequent ejaculation. The PSA, or prostate specific antigen, is responsible for the liquification of the semen that exits the body through ejaculation. Too much or too little of this enzyme causes the prostate to be enlarged, and causes potential cancerous growth of the cells. This in turn can cause prostate cancer. It’s generally recommended to ejaculate at least five times per week, either through sex or masturbation. Men who do this regularly are a third less likely to develop prostate cancer.

Healthy Diet and Prostate Health

An unhealthy prostate requires a prostatectomy. To keep a healthy prostate gland, it’s wiser to eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, and lighter on grains/meats. Fruits and vegetables contain vitamins, minerals and other enzymes that act as antioxidants to prevent cancerous growth. Also, a low-stress lifestyle helps. Smoking, consumption of alcohol and a high-stress lifestyle all contribute to a more likely chance of prostate cancer later in life. At least one day a week should be devoted to relaxing, because there is a correlation between low stress and less cancer symptoms. It’s unknown as to the exact mechanism that causes this.

Prostate health is vital to a long and healthy life, and to avoid prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is one of the most deadly diseases to men, but it can be prevented with a healthy lifestyle and regular visits to a physician. Healthy diet, regular exercise and a healthy sex life with a low-stress lifestyle are the best health precautions to take against the onset of prostate cancer in men over fifty and even before starting in the younger years.
